Static Orb Discussion

Daedalus19876 on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

4 days ago

Lilbrudder: So - what's your opinion on Fellwar Stone vs Inspiring Statuary? I feel like they're comparable (maintain my artifact count, both ramp) but I can't decide which deserves the slot. Inspiring Statuary can give me LOTS of ramp as the game goes on (often upwards of 5 "mana") and can be paired with Avacyn to tap Static Orb at the end of my opponent's turn, but can only be used for colorless "costs" AND can't be used for artifacts. Meanwhile, Fellwar Stone might not give me the colors I need, but it has a lower CMC and gives me the mana immediately and unconditionally...

Deck looks absolutely solid for a first draft. However, there are a few changed I would consider (depending on budget):

1) Diabolic Intent over Diabolic Tutor.

2) Beast Within over Golgari Charm

3) It depends on meta, but I feel that Vulturous Zombie may be underwhelming here.

4) Trinisphere, Sphere of Resistance, and Static Orb are good stax cards you're missing.

5) Mindslicer.

6) Bone Splinters is cute, but sorcery speed makes this not very playable.

7) I am not a fan of Animist's Awakening here.

Happy deckbuilding!

Hey dude, im not sure i ever heard back from you on my proposed trade. If you're not down, I'd still be interested in the Static Orb

Teferi the fake blue mage

Made this deck out of the 2014 teferi precon my girlfriend got me

Like i said never played blue so i have no clue what to change in the future but for now it's doing pretty well (6/10)

Main goal is to bash with the big monsters and untap with Teferi, Temporal Archmage for ramp or other purposes, Static Orb and Winter Orb help to put my opponents at disadvantages where i can untape with my general to give me the upper hand

Got some cards that make them skip untap phase and 1 card to get me 2 turns etc...

Hey thanks for the constructive criticism, this list is the product of a week of theory crafting. Everything is a bit jumbled and the curve isn't great. I didn't have time to get a description in yet either, sorry about that. What I want for control here is not a hard lock but something more akin to hate bears and winning through attrition. This deck isn't going to win in the first 6 turns, let's just put that out there. I'm looking at turn 7 or 8 probably, which means I need to disrupt turns 1-6 for other players. That said, I think I'll be removing Iroas, God of Victory for Spirit of the Labyrinth and possibly Argentum Armor for Aura of Silence.

You are probably right about Leonin Shikari but it's new to me so I'm not sure how effective it is. I assumed passing around Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp and the swords at instant speed would be worth a slot? If it doesn't work out I may go with Ethersworn Canonist.

I think I have to pass on MLD, my LGS is full of competent players but they aren't degenerates heh. Same reason Blood Moon was passed up here, I can win playing mostly fair but I will still try to find a spot for Static Orb since it's just great with War's Toll and Urabrask the Hidden.

You know of any really good hate cards in red similar to Stranglehold but doesn't so much target the mana base?

Hello again!

I tried playtesting this deck and it felt...weird. It didn't output much offensive pressure, and it seemed to have too few proper stax cards to survive as a control deck.

(Obviously you just built it so it needs some tuning, of course.)

RW's best strength in control is land destruction. Thus, Armageddon, Cataclysm, Ruination, Razia's Purification etc could help you secure your victory once you drop a win-con.

Stax cards I would include: Static Orb, Winter Orb, Storage Matrix, Tangle Wire, Ghirapur AEther Grid, etc. And don't forget Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast: the best anti-control counterspells!

Smoke and Meekstone are good ways to lock down creature-based board states.

Have you taken a look at some of the Gisela stax/control decks on this site? They might help you find some more cards.

Leonin Shikari seems strange here. Might be a cuttable card.

What's your meta like? It's easier to tailor a hate package once you know your opponents' decks :)

Happy deckbuilding!

love the deck, but have you thought about a Clock of Omens, with the Static Orb and/or Winter Orb combo? the Clock of Omens untaps whatever you need whenever you need to and keeps the Static Orb from hurting you.
