Vivid Creek Discussion

TheBloopKing on Kess, Dissident Mage plans A, B, and C

6 days ago

Additions; Gitaxian Probe, Preordain, Spell Pierce, Dispel, Swiftfoot Boots

Sea Gate Wreckage, Blighted Cataract, Akoum Refuge, Jwar Isle Refuge

Subtractions; Arcane Melee, Darksteel Ingot, Worn Powerstone, Underworld Connections, Insidious Will

Vivid Crag, Vivid Marsh, Vivid Creek, Opal Palace

I removed some of the ramp for some cheaper options. Kess, Dissident Mage needed some more protection so Swiftfoot Boots was necessary till I get the other boots. Land switches kinda water down the deck a little bit. (i need better land)

Angrath, Minotaur Pirate, is not a legal commander because it is not a creature. Only Planeswalkers which specifically delineate that they can be used as a commander (example: Teferi, Temporal Archmage), or when they start as a creature (example: Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip).

Another rule of commander is that all cards in the deck must exclusively fall within your commander's colour identity. Colour identity includes both the colorus to cast the spell, and all mana symbols in the text box. Even assuming arguendo your commander is legal (though it is not, as established herein), its colour identity would be Red and Black. Thus, you can only play cards with Red or Black colour identities.

I am well aware Boros Reckoner can either be red or white. Its colour identity is both Red and White--as such, it would be illegal with a Rakdos commander.

The following cards, would also fall outside Rakdos' colours, and thus would not be permissible:

You also cannot use any lands which have non-Red/Black symbols in their rules texts. Vivid Creek, Island, Dimir Aqueduct, Dismal Backwater, Swiftwater Cliffs, and Izzet Boilerworks are all no-goes. The same is true of artifacts, so Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, and Sky Diamond cannot be used. While Fellwar Stone can produce non-Red/Black mana, because it does not have mana symbols in it, its colour identity is colourless, and can thus be used in any deck.

I think that covers everything. There might be more that I missed. I hope this proves helpful.

This deck probably wants any color mana producers for in case there are activated abilities on cards you steal you want to use. I would suggest Darksteel Ingot as a definite mana rock for a thievery deck, or Manalith as a budget option. Gilded Lotus wouldn't be bad either.

Likewise you could potentially get some benefits from your mana base on that end. Vivid Marsh and Vivid Creek are pretty easy to get to fix your mana in case of wanting off colors, or just use a Realmwright to fix all your lands to providing a third color.

I wouldn't bother with Summer Bloom at all, because you have so few lands in the deck, the odds of you having three extra lands in hand seems unlikely. In addition, I would get rid of Thornwood Falls, Vivid Creek, and Vivid Grove, and replace them all with islands. I have an Edric deck that I've built, feel free to check it out.

MrSilk I already had 4 Lotus Bloom to make the deck work. I am a little iffy on running rainbow lands since the idea is not to cast the pacts and pay for them. Summoner's Pact, Slaughter Pact, and Intervention Pact are more geared to force my opponent to pay mana they can't create or afford.

I would like to use Slaughter Pact if I could. I may run a Vivid Creek or two, but I will need to test. Thank you for the ideas.

I love the out of the box playstyle here! If I were you, I'd add in more rainbow mana like 4x Aether Hub and maybe some Reflecting Pools to synergize with the rainbow mana and/or Lotus Bloom, that way you can always pay the mana cost of the pacts you're playing next turn.. If for whatever reason your opponent blocks the effect.

You can also look into some Vivid Creek, Vivid Marsh, Vivid Grove, Vivid Crag, Vivid Meadow etc for some mana fixing.

Other than that.. Like I said. I love it!
