Worn Powerstone Discussion
21 hours ago
I’d add more mana ramp and some interaction to your deck. A bunch of double strike creatures won’t help if your opponent can consistently blow them up or make attacks not profitable.
As for mana ramp I would first get a Smothering Tithe and then just grabbing more low cmc mana rocks like Mind Stone , Prismatic Lens , and Marble Diamond could be good picks. A few others that I think would be good and pretty budget are Hedron Archive and Worn Powerstone
You will also want some card draw so you can dig into your deck a bit. Endless Atlas and Mind's Eye are both decent card draw options that you could use another that I use in my land is Geier Reach Sanitarium and Mikokoro, Center of the Sea lastly The Immortal Sun will buff creatures, make your spells cost 1 less, and draw you cards.
Some last few additions I think would be good is Brave the Sands since having those double strike creatures able to block as well will be very beneficial. Since your deck is very creature heavy I would include some instant speed spells to protect you from board wipes like Make a Stand , Eerie Interlude , Selfless Spirit , and possibly Teferi's Protection
True Conviction could be a nice substitute for your commander if the commander tax gets too high and gives your guys lifelink. Light from Within will give your creatures some really good boosts, Marshal's Anthem will help bring some creatures back and is an anthem effect, also Force of Virtue is a potentially free cast at instant speed for a team boost.

Think you had mentioned that you already have Cascade Bluffs on the way, and Spire of Industry was a possibility we talked about, and you might want to consider Castle Vantress . I think now is about the time that you'll want to start honing in on what you want the deck to have a focus on; given the push for eldrazi and X spells, I think you could drop Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer and Thopter Engineer . I'd personally cut Reverse Engineer , Saheeli's Artistry , and Masterful Replication and start looking into more payoffs for Saheeli's +1. You may want to consider one or two of the following for casting on other people's turns to avoid as much trouble on your own turn: Shimmer Myr , Vedalken Orrery , and/or Leyline of Anticipation ; these will also play well into Unwinding Clock . I think Palladium Myr is droppable given if it doesn't have haste it's functionally a Worn Powerstone , and Pristine Talisman , Prismatic Lens , and Izzet Locket can be pretty underwhelming. Blue Sun's Zenith and Expansion / Explosion are draw spells that use Saheeli's ability as a payoff, and BSZ will shuffle back in. If you want more draw, Slate of Ancestry is good if you find yourself with a lot of creatures, Tower of Fortunes if you end up with a lot of extra mana to spend, and Loreseeker's Stone if you find yourself empty-handed most of the time.

Of course! The cards I would remove are Noxious Gearhulk (high cmc for a card not really super on theme or that abusable in this deck), Bolas's Citadel (only good in a really low cmc deck, and this is not that), Acquire (no guarantee that an opponent will have any good artifacts for you to take, something more important than Steal Artifact, because it's not inherently removal like Steal Artifact is), Trinket Mage (3 mana for a card that can only tutor 4 cards, two of which are Expedition Map and Wayfarer's Bauble = very meh), Rune-Scarred Demon (7 mana for a tutor is way too expensive), Personal Tutor (super slow at sorcery speed tutor to top of deck), and literally the entire category of clones (stealing is cloning plus removing, so strictly better).
As for my suggestions, the three reanimates are useful because they let you reanimate from opponents' graveyards for very little mana investment.
The three "narrow" cards will always have a target worth using them on. I've seen people concede when I cast Steal Enchantment on their Mind's Dilation or Omniscience.
As for my higher cmc suggestions, I've found that this deck does best with these expensive cards and ramp that can support that. At the moment, your ramp would definitely not be able to enable casting that many high cmc cards, so I would upgrade all the ramp that only produces one mana (which has the exact card-to-mana ratio as a land) to ramp that produces two or more like Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , Sisay's Ring , Ur-Golem's Eye , Everflowing Chalice , Hedron Archive , and even Firemind Vessel if you want! Do that, and not only will you be able to cast higher cmc cards more easily, you'll also be able to be way more explosive in the mid to late-game.
Lastly, I'd say to not underestimate Memory Plunder. At its baseline, I find it's usually an instant speed board wipe, but it has the potential to do a lot more craziness. Think of it more like a tutor that lets you cast what you tutor for free at instant speed, except it only lets you tutor what's already in opponents' graveyards.
Thanks, and stay awesome!

There are so many mana rocks that are better than
that not one single copy should ever get used regardless of budget. The most obvious replacement is
which is the most played card in EDH but the signets and talismans were already mentioned, the diamond cycle, ie:
Sphere of the Suns
are better by virtue of being only 2 CMC to cast.
At 3 CMC you have: Mana Geode [scrys], Commander's Sphere [draws card], Pristine Talisman [gains life], Heraldic Banner [anthem], Spinning Wheel [taps creature], Vessel of Endless Rest [reclaims card for yourself or buries a card an opponent is recurring from their graveyard back into their library], Crystal Ball [scrys], guild Keyrune and Cluestone cycles [animate or card draw], Darksteel Ingot [at least it is indestructible], Seer's Lantern [inferior version of the Crystal Ball], not to mention much better ones like Chromatic Lantern , Worn Powerstone or Coalition Relic .

I'll try to keep things budget friendly. First, get rid of all 7 of your mana rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Generator Servant , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , Crystal Vein , and Lotus Petal if it's in budget.

You're off to a great start! I would recommend a bit more ramp though. Karlov draws a lot of hate, and rightfully so, so even though he's 2 CMC you'll have to recast him a fair amount. You're at 5 ramp pieces right now but I always aim for 8 in my decks, give or take a few depending on the curve of the deck. Crypt Ghast is great but expensive and delicate so it's worth running but can be unreliable. Try Wayfarer's Bauble , Star Compass , Prismatic Lens , Mind Stone , and/or Worn Powerstone .
One thing many new EDH-deck builders stumble on is not enough interaction/removal. It's usually best to focus on building your own board state than tearing down others but having some removal is very important still. I love it when I have a deck that can support heavy removal. That said, I think you might have a bit too much, especially considering you have removal in the Command Zone. Definitely keep all the enchantment/artifact removal you can (enchantments are some of the most powerful things in commander and the hardest to remove). I like the exile effects, since recursion is so common. Check out Return to Dust and Forsake the Worldly . Running 2-6 board wipes is great and you're there already.
I'd recommend replacing a few targeted-creature removal cards with some more utility cards, partucularly draw spells. Greed and Well of Lost Dreams are awesome. Try Read the Bones , Ancient Craving , Ambition's Cost , Phyrexian Arena , Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Erebos, God of the Dead , and Promise of Power .
Rhystic Tutor is a trap. I'd drop it.

Maybe using cards like Sidisi, Undead Vizier so you can tutor cards and sac stuff you need in the grave, Scheming Symmetry , Phyrexian Delver , Bolas's Citadel , Buried Alive to tutor your wincons to the gy (like Necrotic Ooze Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion and you win in the spot), Animate Dead , Dark Petition , Carrion Feeder , Gravecrawler , Living Death / Rise of the Dark Realms (that last one is kinda expensive) I'd suggest those as black cards. Using Sol Ring is more useful than Worn Powerstone , Expedition Map to tutor any land to hand, Tormod's Crypt bc gy hate is useful, Gilded Lotus 3 mana by 5 isn't bad, Thought Vessel , Aetherflux Reservoir wincon tho. The mana base kinda concerns me by the amount of basic swamps, you could use something like Cabal Stronghold , Reliquary Tower , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds even if it's a mono color deck, being able to shuffle and get lands out of the deck will be useful, less dead draws. Sword of the Animist is always useful if you don't have ramp.
