Ya that will work.. Do you happen to have an M13 version of Reliquary Tower? Just made a trade today with one from M13, and it would be cool to get a matching set (only need two for the deck).

Dropping you a line, haven't heard back from you in a few days, still waiting on shipping information on your end of the trade.

Imp Tutor is only a $160 if you get the judge promo. But like I said, misread "a little while."

Yeah, I may have misinterpreted "a little while." Oh well.

@MindAblaze: This would be true except that competitive edh staples are different from 75% and casual edh staples. It's context dependent. Imperial Seal for instance is a competitive edh staple, but it is not commonly played in 75%/casual decks due to its price, thus not making it a staple for those metagames.

Approach of the Second Sun links to the deck when I post it in my decklist rather than to the card right now. I don't know if this is because it isn't in the system yet or if there's a coding error.

Right, but that is still circumstantial based on the deck list or meta. Like in The Gitrog Monster, Dakmor Salvage is a staple, but that is not the case for any other deck. Ad Nauseam is a staple in any black deck that has the right curve.

In a control heavy meta, you just run Elesh + Living Plane. Boom.
I'm not arguing that staples aren't dependent upon the meta/level of competitiveness, but the flaw with the OG post is that it simply asks for staples. I stand by the notion that the cards I listed are staples, though edhrec does a better job of not having a competitive bias.

LeaPlath: Trinisphere and other stax effects are common in the common archetype known as stax. Green runs mana dorks so that it can run cards like Null Rod and other effects that hose over the non-green ramp effects. I've played over 500 edh games in the past couple months, and I can back up my list with numbers. Mana dorks are important.
Angel's Grace and Silence show up in white decks with Ad Nauseam, but since Ad Nauseam decks make up a good portion of the decks played in the competitive combo lists, they show up frequently enough to be considered staples in those archetypes. The same is true of Food Chain/Eternal Scourge in Tazri and Prossh builds. The question wasn't universal staples, but merely staples, which the cards I listed are a part of. Opal Palace is hardly a staple, btw. I'd play Tarnished Citadel first.
Check out the cEDH subreddit to find better information than that which I provided if you're interested in knowing more about a list of staples because I think one was made there at some point.

@Gidgetimer: I made that list in about five minutes. If I see the cards often enough to rattle off a list that quickly, they're probably staples.

Dimir Signet or other on-color signets
This is the best I have off the top of my head. The multicolored ones add some things, too.

That makes sense. Well, when you do get to cast As Foretold, I'd love to hear how it plays. It seems like it would be a valuable engine.
April 17, 2017 5:28 p.m.
Have you considered Nature's Lore? If you find that As Foretold isn't a productive slot, Lore is better than Dimir Signet, I think since Palinchron combo relies on us having a land-based mana advantage. It would also work to thin the library, however marginal that change might be while having the same cmc as Signet. It evades Null Rod, but gets hit by gedon effects.
