Valakut Invoker Discussion

Coward_Token: Thanks for the thoughts! Many of those have now been included. I'm not sure we have enough cross-synergy to really make the untap/tap synergies work in general (with the exception of Umbral Mantle).

pyrak: Hmmm, why?

Malsorn: We are going to revamp this deck shortly -- we're not entirely happy with the direction it's evolved -- and with those changes we may have less artifact synergies. Stay tuned.

Profet93: Both very good, but hard to find slots... What would you cut?

RNR_Gaming: I'll take a look! Honestly, though, Suns_Champion and I are probably going to head in a LESS cEDH direction with this... The Monolith combos are certainly powerful, and I'm so glad that Boros has a viable cEDH commander now... but they're a little too well-explored for our tastes. They're basically riffs on the old Power Artifact combos, but without blue. Stay tuned for the rebuild here!

Joe_Ken_: As RNR said -- the issue is that we want all of our infinite mana sinks to be useful at all points in the game, not just after we have the infinite mana. Our current primary sinks are Walking Ballista, Staff of Domination, Diviner's Wand, Retrofitter Foundry, and a few more. They're all noticeably useful in the early and mid game, even though they obviously are best with the infinite mana :) Compare to Valakut Invoker, which is pretty much useless until we've achieved the combo. Also, Walking Ballista is definitely tutorable with Imperial Recruiter / Recruiter of the Guard, so we have that angle covered decently. Regardless, thank you for your thoughts :D Please let us know if you have any other suggestions!

With any of the infinite mana sources Valakut Invoker could be used to take players out of the game.

Or you could just stack a bunch of triggers on the classic Rocket Launcher with the infinite mana you make.

I playtested this a couple times, and think Murderous Redcap might be a better option than Valakut Invoker. There were a couple playtests where I wished I had the option of hard-casting the combo piece (or just someone to use as a blocker).

*Valakut Invoker is a better wincon than Shivan Hellkite, so the deck can be mono-black without Gamble!

Pandaka I'll probably stick with Valakut Invoker then, simply for the flexibility. On the upside, 8 mana for 3 damage vs 8 mana for 5 damage won't matter when there's an infinite mana combo. Thanks anyway, though.

Flamewave Invoker could work as well as Valakut Invoker but you would need a mountain.

how does Valakut Invoker get around flagbearers? in that it can bolt them to death and then move on to other targets?

the mana-fixing of Gatecreeper Vine is nice, but with Axebane Guardian looks almost redundant.

why not drop the invoker all together and just put Ulamog's Crusher in the main?

the deck looks decent. =) what about it needs help? is it too slow?

Needs some Buried Alive shenanigans. I'd recommend adding in the invokers as another mana sink with the combo, Valakut Invoker and Bloodrite Invoker.

I'd recommend swapping out Tormenting Voice and Dismember, as they aren't that impactful. Wheel of Fortune if you can afford it would be good, and Reforge the Soul is a budget alternative.

Hope this helps!
