Sunbird's Invocation


Whenever you cast a spell from your hand, reveal the top X cards of your library, where X is that spell's converted mana cost. You may cast a card revealed this way with converted mana cost X or less without paying its mana cost. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Sunbird's Invocation Discussion

miixxedup on Wort: the Ramp Mother of Burn

3 days ago

My bad, couldn't extract that from the context in which I was reading it.

From my experience Wort is a slow playing deck, with very explosive turns which requires setup. What has worked multiple times for me, is that even if you hit an X spell, you still cast it and let it go to the yard. There it can be Regrowth or Past in Flames. Red/Green lack the tutors to find spell "stuff" and Sunbird's Invocation has helped me serval times in this way by simply filtering. This way, you could maybe reduce your x-count spells, which might get stuck in the hand.

I can see why (and why not) you should play sunbirds. For me however, it has been nothing but success.

crowned on Wort: the Ramp Mother of Burn

miixxedup- what Matt meant in post #22 was that if you "cascade" via Sunbird's Invocation and get an X cost spell, the chosen X value will be 0. Since the deck has a ~9 x-spells which are also win-conditions, it would be incredibly counter-productive to lose them to Invocation.

It's a cool card especially for commander, but you always have to consider it's CMC and if the effect can win you the game or not. Since it has no direct impact the turn you play it (unless it's combined with another spell) and most of our cards are ramp spells, it would generally cascade into more ramp. Does that win us the game?

You are wrong about Sunbird's Invocation, you use the value chosen for X as long as it is on the stack. See gatherer page, where this is specified.

Some of these cards might be fun to test as ways to cheat creatures into play or gain card draw off of your big critters:

Have fun playing!

Some other cards that might be fun to test if you want to cheat in big creatures:

Xenagos, God of Revels, Hellkite Charger, Scourge of the Throne, Savage Ventmaw, and Pathbreaker Ibex might also add some value. A Fight to the Death played while opponents are attacking each other might be cool.

Have fun!

Hey man, it is good that you try to build decks outside of your comfort zone, it grows you as a player.I do have some comments on your approach though.

  1. Mayael the Anima only resolves for 4 creatures. Out of 98 other cards, that is insanely low percantage of success, so i suggest you cut this card.

  2. You have a ton of mana rocks, and Zacama tends to work better with actual mana, so you might want to add some heavy ramp cards as Explosive Vegetation, Skyshroud Claim, Boundless Realms, Kodama's Reach and so forth. You really need those hard. Also, why is paradox engine in the deck, if you aren't trying to be combo based?

  3. You might want to consider some anti-counter techs like Pyroblast, and extra value tech like Sunbird's Invocation.

  4. If you aren't all in against inf combos, adding Temur Sabertooth is a great idea, as it is a pretty much instawin with zacama and 12 lands on the field, it gives inf mana, inf life (with zacama), etc.

There goes my suggestions, I hope it helps you. I would be very glad if you check out my deck: Aurelia, the Warleader EDH - Make them panic and comment on what you find is odd/off etc. Have a blast playing this dinosaur naya deck, dude!
