ZendikariWol I'm not sure you're reading all of the text involved in Fragile. Mox Iridium also triggers when targeted by creatures, planeswalkers, etc. Not just spells. i.e., you want to trigger it by making something more useful out of it--playing Animating Faerie, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, or Skilled Animator, or something cheaper so that you break even or actually gain mana out of the transaction. Use an Icy Manipulator or Unbender Tine to give yourself free mana, once per round (because if you do it more than once, you break it), on your opponents' turns or on your own turn.

Fragile also triggers this way. An opponent can kill it even without something that specifically targets artifacts--you're looking too specifically at cards that target only artifacts. A Brazen Borrower can kill it if it's played in response to you targeting it with a spell or creature. Or for that matter, a Pestermite can tap it, in response to its owner targeting it to try to get its use out of it, and before even that tapping resolves, it dies. Really, anything can kill it--even an opponent's Icy Manipulator, in response to whatever the first spell/ability that targeted it was. Your opponent doesn't need to cast two spells to kill it. They only need to target it with anything in response to you targeting it. BUT you want to target it in order to make use of its ability. Therein lies the risk/reward. Flickering it, as you pointed out, might be the best way to go infinite with it; you spend two mana, flicker it, generate two mana, and when it re-enters the battlefield, it forgets that it had been targeted before. You can use Venser, the Sojourner, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, Skybind, and Brago, King Eternal to cheat mana out of it this way, perhaps more cards than just that. Like I said, I'm sure one can find a way to go infinite off of it, which is why it's important that it's fragile.

Although, like I said, since it's a zero-mana artifact, it probably won't be used for what it's designed for--it'll probably just be one of the 99 in a storm deck or a cheerios deck, simply by virtue of being a zero-mana artifact spell.

Hello! I'm interested in a number of cards from your latest post. Here are the ones I'm interested in:

Ancient Tomb (21)

Mana Vault (21)

Preordain (1.50)

Purphoros, God of the Forge (16)

Staff of Domination (26)

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas (17)

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon (38)

If I did my math right, this should come out to 140.50, + 3.5 for shipping = 144

If these cards are still available hit me up. :)

Hello all! I'm posting because I'm about to list a few cards for sale and figured I'd bring them here first (though I'd possibly consider a trade as well). For pricing, I've generally taken the lowest price from TCG that matches card quality and knocked 10-15% off. The list is basically "I'm going to sell my Mox Opals and I noticed a few other cards laying on my desk I don't use." I may update the list early next week if I find the motivation to search for a few more things.

Anyway, shipping is included in all sales - I'd ship in an envelope for sales under $40, and track anything $40+

Things for sale:

Let me know if you're interested in anything!

JARTLEONHART on How to equip Helm of ...

7 months ago

In order to have multiple copies of helm of the host, you need 3 pieces:

Helm of the Host : Simple. There is only 1 card that suit this role.

A "turn an artifact into creature" card. There are tons of these in different colors, but most are blue:

An "except is not legendary"/"maintain name" clone:

There are some cards that suits the role 2, but don't let you equip the clone. For example: March of the Machines

Conclussion: It's not easy to get it, but possible. It get's lot easier when you add a 4th role as Mirror Gallery letting any clone be of use.

cireretals on Oathbreaker Tier List

I like the idea of this list. Its a good tool to help a play group stay on the same level. Clearly its not cut and dry, the 58 have a bigger impact, but this is a starting place. And if you don't mind talking about specific cases I'm curious as to why some cards that are clearly more powerful alone are rated lower. Not an argument or anything like that, just curious as I have not played the format extensively. Things like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas vs Tezzeret the Schemer Agent of Bolas seems like a much stronger choice to me.

marn3us: I do think you're right; while Combustible Gearhulk was a powerful card in standard, I don't think it's good in the EDH arena. For card draw, Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time are typically good starting points, though neither is particularly repeatable and you probably don't want to run them together, as delve can become hard to use. I think most card-draw engines don't have much of a second upside, simply because the upside of drawing cards is so good. Phyrexian Arena is a favorite of mine, though it is around $10 now. Jace Beleren is OK, especially if you can pair his +1 with a Notion Thief . You might also consider running Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas or Tezzeret, Artifice Master , though together the two would run you about $25. Staff of Nin is a permanent card for card advantage, as are Howling Mine and Dictate of Kruphix , if you don't mind helping your opponents too. I briefly looked over my first comment, but I don't think I mentioned the cantrips in it; I apologize. Ponder , Preordain and Brainstorm are all great first plays, with brainstorm becoming better with more shuffle effects (like the slow fetches). Twilight Prophet is another favorite card-draw engine of mine.

I see your reason for running the artifact lands better now. You should consider Lotus Bloom for fetching with Tezzeret, as that's an easy +3 mana, and I think Swords to Plowshares is better than Dispatch . However, the other synergies may justify leaving in the lands... practice should help there.

I also want to draw your attention to some new spoilers that just came out today. I can't believe it, but I failed to mention the original 'talisman cycle' to you before now: Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence would all fit well in your deck. Today, it was announced that there will be enemy talismans in Modern Horizons. I intend to pick up a Talisman of Creativity, but you should consider running the talismans of Conviction and Hierarchy as well. These will make excellent 2-mana accelerants, and should end up only being $1-$2 a piece.

As always, good luck!
