Worn Powerstone Discussion
1 day ago
Hey there Daedalus! I decided to increase my budget slightly, from $250 to $290. However, as a result, the overall cuts I had to make were very minimal! Luckily, I was able to find some good deals on ebay and tcgplayer haha. Anyway, here is how my list currently stands when compared to yours:
I've also cut some of the non-basic lands you were running in favor of more basics (mostly for budget reasons + Ruination synergy). I'd really like to hear your thoughts on these changes and make any adjustments as necessary based on your response. I am considering swapping Coldsteel Heart for, say, Mind Stone or Worn Powerstone, but I thought Coldsteel seemed better for the fixing. Dowsing Dagger seems pretty sweet, especially when I can combo it with MLD. It would be an epic play to destroy all lands, then transform the dagger afterwards. I'm just curious as to whether I should include a Mind Stone or Worn Powerstone (or other rock) in its place.
Thank you so much for your time reading this! My decklist is below in case you would prefer to see it in that layout. :)
Oh, and I appreciate the warning about the dangers of running MLD. However, my playgroup is very understanding and open to all strategies, so I know they won't be salty. Also, one of my friends plays a Kess Extra Turns deck, and the other plays a Baral deck filled to the brim with counterspells... so as far as I'm concerned, the MLD is justified to cleanse them of their sin :)
Overall, I am super excited that I was able to build what seems to be a pretty close version of your deck on a sub-$300 budget. I can't wait to purify my next EDH game! :) Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it so much.

First off, I am in love with this deck! Very well done; it seems like a work of art. I really want to build this deck, but I am constraining myself to a ~$250 budget. I'd still like it to be as competitive as possible for that pricepoint, although I acknowledge that I'll have to make sacrifices until I can acquire some of the better cards. I am thinking that the best way for me to keep it competitive at this lower price point is to run the MLD package (unless you think it would be stronger without it). I would be very grateful for any insight you could offer.
1) Based on your response to someone else, you recommended removing Aggravated Assault and Argentum Armor for Ruination and Cataclysm. You also recommended removing Gift of Immortality for Armageddon, but to be honest, I am having such a hard time making that cut because of all the synergy that Gift has with the creatures in this deck. Is that really the best cut to make room for it?
2) I've made the following budget changes to your list to fit within my constraints, but I would love to hear your feedback about my changes and if I ended up going off the rails and altering it too much. I will provide a link to my list below, but the summary of changes I made are as follows:
I know some of those inclusions might seem a bit janky. My thought process was that, since Land Tax and Scroll Rack are a draw engine, I would replace them with Rogue's Gloves and Mask of Memory, which also draw. In place of the 3 mana rocks I cut, I swapped them with Mind Stone, Star Compass, and Worn Powerstone. Finally, I substituted Memory Jar with Reforge the Soul, which has a similar wheel effect for the same cmc (or less with miracle), and I substituted Wheel of Fortune with Chandra Ablaze (mini wheel that will probably get value from forcing opponents to discard larger hands and draw to 3). I substituted the sword of fire and ice with the scythe, because that sword generates value, which the scythe seems to come the closest to replicating for a cheaper price (the only difference being that I get to summon the blocking creature instead of drawing a card and pinging something for 2).
Do these sound like reasonable changes to preserve the spirit of the deck? If you have other suggestions, I am definitely open to hearing them.

The main thing that stands out to me here is a lack of ramp, which is going to be very important if you're trying to drop a bunch of angels. I think for R/W, particularly one so artifact heavy, an accelerant like Thran Dynamo or Worn Powerstone (or even Hedron Archive) will do a lot more work that something like Manalith or Meteorite (as much as I love that card). Wayfarer's Bauble is almost always preferable to Traveler's Amulet. The one extra mana to put the land into play is well worth it.
Also, Sword of the Animist seems like an absolute must-add for this deck.
Hope some of this helps! Good luck out there!

Hey I play very similar style deck with Aurelia at the helm. You can check it out here: Aurelia Angels
Anyway as far as suggestions. First up you need way more mana. At least 38. This makes it so games without land tax, you can actually play magic. Next up for ramping, Thran Dynamo,Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus are where you want to be, Id cut the cluestone, and extraplanar lens since 2 color.
Instead of Konda's Banner try Light from Within
Cards that I would cut Wild Ricochet has never done much for me. Generator Servant seems real bad from card advantage stand point. A little more card draw would be good Reforge the Soul if on a budget, Knollspine Dragon + Sarkhan's Triumph is really strong.
Anyway let me know what you think.

OK, So here are some of my initial reactions:
Consider replacing the Gilded Lotus with a Worn Powerstone.
Also, the Traitorous Blood is kinda cute if Brion Stoutarm is in play, but you don't have enough other 'borrow' or sacrifice effects to really make it effective. Maybe replace that with a Conquering Manticore instead. The 5/5 body doesn't suck.
However that leads me to one of bigger problems. Your mana curve is pretty high. You don't really start hitting until you get to the 4-5 mana range. I know this is EDH, but still, might want to bring that down a bit. Let consider some helper cards.
Consider the following: Weathered Wayfarer, Figure of Destiny, Slumbering Dragon, Dragon Hunter, Mother of Runes are all fetchable with a Ranger of Eos.
Boros Guildmage, Victory's Herald, and Hellrider seem a bit weak in this deck.
Let me know what you think.

I'd definitely replace Mana Matrix with something a lot more useful. Quicksilver Amulet comes to mind, or maybe Metalworker if you feel like spending money. Also, I'd replace Mana Prism with Worn Powerstone. In case you're looking for any other ideas, feel free to check out my Kozilek deck (and tell me what you think).

I've played my Daxos deck for two years now; feel free to check it out (and comment, would appreciate it :)). Your deck has many similarities to my own. I think though, that you could add some more of the 'nasty' enchantments that black has to pester your opponents with ;) One of my favorites would be Underworld Dreams; nobody likes taking damage for drawing cards and it would complement your Fate Unraveler nicely. Another really strong one would be No Mercy.
Another thing you might want to consider is some ramp/land fetching, to increase the speed of your deck a little. A mana rock like Worn Powerstone would be good, but I'd really recommend something like Oreskos Explorer or Weathered Wayfarer/Land Tax if you have the monies.

Not bad at all. You may want some mana rocks, since they can be ramp early game and creatures late game. Here's a few I found:
