Vault of Catlacan Discussion

Tzefick on Enchanting Starfield

Boza The Ixalan transformed lands all tap for color by themselves, but the Vault of Catlacan taps for purple (all mana) while the Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun only taps for green.

Also if you enforce that this land should be an enchantment land instead of only a land you're breaking with the previous desire to be conforming with the cycle. In addition you get your previous desire since the "Tap for X white, where X is number of enchantments" will see the land itself as an enchantment and therefore always have: Tap for as a minimum. A foul with this plan is in nonbo with Starfield of Nyx that makes the land a 0/0 enchantment land creature.

I disagree about granting the land any kind of devotion benefit. The other two in the cycle only cares about the thing that makes them scale; Cradle = Creatures, Vault = Artifacts. This shouldn't be different.


As for the card itself it doesn't present itself in its base form as a way to get enchantments. The Cradle has an ETB that grabs a creature in the top 4. The Vault grants Treasures whenever your creatures connect on an opponent. This one... scries when you already cast enchantments.

I would suggest to change the base form to a way to gather enchantments.


Alternative 1:

Enchanting Starfield

Legendary Enchantment

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return an enchantment card from your graveyard to your hand.

At the beginning of your end step, if you control 4 or more enchantments, transform ~.


Alternative 2

Enchanting Starfield

Legendary Enchantment

At the beginning of your upkeep, look at the top card of your library. If it's an enchantment card, you may cast it.

At the beginning of your end step, if you control 4 or more enchantments, transform ~.

Zomgasa on Treasure!!

Jace's Archivist would pair nicely with Narset, Parter of Veils but otherwise, looks out of place to me. Good card, just unsure if this is the right deck for it. Storm the Vault  Flip is out of colors and would take Vault of Catlacan out. And Having Treasure Map  Flip doesn't necessarily count as a land with Treasure Cove . In EDH I don't like to help my opponents unless I can guarantee that it would help me more. So I try not to play cards like Minds Aglow , Words of Wisdom , or Howling Mine . I have nothing against Venser's Journal , I would simply rather play it as a land with Reliquary Tower . If gaining 3 life wins you the game, then stick with Revitalize . Otherwise, I think there are more, better ways to use this card slot.

All in all, wonderful deck idea!

More thoughts: What do you think of Thopter Assembly and it's interaction with Time Sieve ? Maybe with Myr Battlesphere as well? Now that you're starting to narrow down on colors, what do you think of running Sen Triplets ? it was one of my favorites. I'm not seeing a Sol Ring was that intentional? All Is Dust may make a good field sweep for you. Master Transmuter will help in getting big stompy out earlier. Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , or the like would definitely help you get tools you need to your hand quickly.

I hope that helps.

Here's the flipped form of Storm the Vault: Vault of Catlacan.

Corrosive_Cat,
Since we already have a return-to-hand effect in Decoction Module, I'm not sure about Paradoxical Outcome nor Endless Sands.

I think the deck already has enough wincons, but I could see dropping one (maybe the 'go big' option, if Dinos shift out of the meta) and focusing on the go-wide options, with 4x Reckless Fireweaver. In a deck like that, 1x Brass's Bounty could be really fun.

Thanks, as always!

Athraithe,
Storm the Vault  Flip/Vault of Catlacan was in the very first build of the deck, and I talk about it in the 'Cards I've already tested' section.

Without manarocks and with all the tap effects taking TONS of mana, I'm not really sure what Paradox Engine would do here.

Thanks though!

Corrosive_Cat and Snivy__,
Thanks so much!

Makeshift Munitions could be hilarious. I'm not sure if the deck has enough mana to really make worthwhile, but it's definitely worth a try.

Tilonalli's Summoner is intriguing, but I don't think it would be a great fit in the current deck. That's partly because the deck is more about chump-blocking (until it can build up enough Modules and mana to combo off) while Summoner is all about attacking. But mostly because the deck doesn't have nearly enough mana to make the Summoner totally useful. Maybe in a more Aggro version though, especially one with Storm the Vault  FlipVault of Catlacan ...

Thanks again!

The Flip card on Storm the Vault  Flip is incorrect. It should be Vault of Catlacan. Thanks in advance for fixing!

I tried to post this on Izzet modules but it wasn't working so I'm just dropping it on your wall ...


DJduck,
+1 ... I'm a big fan of Wonkothekiller's deck as well!

I've been testing with this list; here are some thoughts:

Draw well!

Cragon18,
Thanks so much! I really appreciate your inputs; you've given me a TON of things to think on and test! Here are some initial thoughts:

  • In testing so far, there's almost always been something useful to do with Vault of Catlacan. Extra +1/+1 Counters and Servos from Animation Module for sure, but also huge Walking Ballistas, tutoring with Inventors' Fair, or block-then-bouncing Glint-Nest Crane or Whirler Virtuoso.
  • Nezahal, Primal Tide is an intriguing option ... though The Locust God might be better in that kind of role. I'll have to check them out.
  • Maverick Thopterist is worth looking at for sure ... not sure why I hadn't thought of him earlier!
  • Yeah, I'm not sure about Metallic Mimic either. The card is pretty much terrible on its own, but it's just sooooo good with Animation Module (choosing Servo), Whirler Virtuoso (choosing Thopter), and especially Walking Ballista (since we can then tutor for it Whir of Invention after choosing Construct).
  • The board definitely feels a little weird without some sweepers ... but so far, the deck hasn't really needed them (I found they often hurt me worse than my opp, plus it can just chump-block so effectively). But yeah, since we will almost certainly see more "can't be blocked", Trample, and Lifegain now, I probably need to just plan on it ...

Thanks again!
