Thespian's Stage Discussion

cdkime on Dark Depths Combo

Vesuva and Dark Depths do not work together.

Vesuva enters the battlefield as a copy of that land--this is a replacement effect that changes the manner it enters the battlefield. In this case, it will enter as if it were a Dark Depths , which means Dark Depths' own replacement effect putting 10 ice counters on it also applies.

Thespian's Stage becomes a copy of Dark Depths , but, since counters are not copied and since Thespian's Stage was already on the battlefield, the replacement effect portion of Dark Depths is never implicated by the copy. Since the Thespian's Stage copy has no counters on it, the triggered ability triggers, and you get the token.

I know that I can use Thespian's Stage on Dark Depths to get Marit Lage out...

Does this also work with Vesuva and Dark Depths ?

DeltaDisease Dark Depths enters the battlefield with 10 ice counters on it. If you use Thespian's Stage to copy Dark Depths the enter the battlefield ability won't trigger and it immediately creates a Marit Lage token.

I would add Thespian's Stage for the combo with Dark Depths

Hey, lots of good cards here, but I think you're taking the Eldrazi theme too far; so far that it's hindering the rest of your deck.

You don't need 45 creatures who are all Eldrazi. The Eldrazi plan is good with Animar since they're colorless creatures, but before you can consistently play good Eldrazi creatures you need a lot of counters on Animar. This is where mana dorks can shine because they can put a counter on Animar and also be used as ramp for Eldrazi. It's also beneficial to play a few low mana cost support creatures who are excellent when you can bounce them or because they give you repeatable value.

Ancestral Statue is an engine with Animar since it can bounce itself back to your hand and if you have four or more counters on Animar it can be a loop of casting Statue for free and putting a counter on Animar each time, that's good with Eldrazi Titans. Fierce Empath is a very good Eldrazi tutor since most of the best Eldrazi have six CMC or higher. Being able to bounce Empath to then play it again can give you a repeatable Eldrazi tutor.

When casting a lot of creatures then Beast Whisperer is good repeatable draw. Fauna Shaman can be a repeatable creature tutor; discard an Eldrazi Titan who you can't cast yet, shuffle your library and then tutor for any other creature. Eternal Witness is an not Eldrazi, but she's and upgrade for a few cards here and is very good when you can bounce her. Thespian's Stage is another source of colorless mana that can potentially be another Eldrazi Temple .


Eldrazi to consider cutting:

  • Eldrazi Devastator
  • Wretched Gryff
  • Vile Aggregate
  • Tide Drifter
  • Ruination Guide
  • Nettle Drone
  • Kozilek's Channeler
  • Eldrazi Obligator
  • Deepfathom Skulker
  • Brood Monitor
  • Breaker of Armies
  • Vexing Scuttler
  • Mockery of Nature

If you're going to run the locus lands you should play Vesuva , Thespian's Stage , and a spicy Dark Depths for that sweet sweet Stage Depths combo.

Also OG Ugin/Karn are definitely add-ins here, they are far more powerful than the newer ones.

Mox Opal , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , and Rings of Brighthearth are all solid cards here for ramp but might not fit the budget.

If you keep your spells or CMC low to the ground you could do a colorless storm build using Aetherflux Reservoir .

Also I'm a huge fan of Chaos Wand + Engine + Rocks to cast all of everyone's stuff! (serves two purposes, fun and to get rid of those cards so they can't be used against you!).

Codex Shredder is great, it also has a one time recursion ability, unless you play Myr Retriever or Trading Post (strongly suggest the latter).

Not sure why Sculpting Steel isn't already here.

Spine of Ish Sah is great permanent removal that can be reused, with oh say a Trading Post or Ashnod's Altar . Speaking of Ashnod's + Nim Deathmantle + Battlesphere is fun, infinite dudes.

Staff of Domination is a little pricey but... definitely a utility here!

Wurmcoil Engine for SURE belongs in the deck.

Mind's Eye for sure belongs here for some draw power!

Lastly Voltaic Key combos with a lot of stuff in artifacts.

Also I'm much more inclined to encourage the artifact route with some Eldrazi titan's at the top end, than a weird mix like you have now. My artifact deck, Daretti, runs one Ulamog, Ceaseless Hunger as just a top end as it generates a lot of mana naturally... Also gotta love that two Scour From Existences for 4 mana less...

Thespian's Stage can copy your boss without the slumber counters. Soul Separator can take it from a graveyard and give you a 2 mana legendary land and a 12/12 zombie

A lot of these I either considered or forgot existed. xD

I used to run Mouth of Ronom , but Barbarian Ring is sweet!

I've been back and forth on Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage , but I'll revisit it.

Splendid Reclamation is cool, but I prefer it on a creature that Mills me.

I'll have to add Inkmoth Nexus . Way too good not to.

Pir's Whim is one I forgot about, along with Hour of Promise .

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll have to check out your deck!
