OKAY, I'LL BUMP (BITE), BUT EXPECT TO ROLL 2 d6 DICE, JUST TO GET A ONE.

Since everyone pretty much abandoned this post, I think it's time to shatter not just a mere Block of Ice, but shatter the world's supply it's not funny. You probably wanted to know my Signature Spellbook all this time. I have 7/8 thus far; but I'll leave it to you as to why I chose these 7 so far:

  1. Aeon Engine

  2. Flood of Tears

  3. Wildest Dreams

  4. Ponder

  5. Act on Impulse

  6. Concentrate

  7. Echo of Eons

  8. ???

Reciting from the OP, this list is based upon Tips 2 & 3. I just mentioned why on my Userpage, but don't read unless you're a masochist for Negative IRL (Or if you disagree on a simple thing on Card 7.).

As for Card 8; the one to represent I will not create; Custom Cards in vein of MTG Set Editor seems nothing but a cheat.

As for what's available, Sarkhan would not be welcome here. He was Temur Identity, but has since ditched those colors for just his Center Color; . This Ol' Sarkhan is out; & from there, whatever hopes a Walker "had" to relate. Animar, Soul of Elements is Nature incarnate. It's disqualified as I'm not that much of a Nature Lover; in fact, I resent it ever since LIMITED EDITION ALPHA (Yep, I was born a City Boy, & now, I have a friggen Forest in the background. I never went in there.), Maelstrom Wanderer as a Legend just seems like it has no story to back it up. I actually have a lot to say about this beast; but I need concrete Storyline about this beast of a now destroyed Maelstrom . Anything can help. Has Omnath only gotten stronger each & every time a Legendary Creature about this Blob has made a new appearance? What's next?! ? ? BOTH?! Well, being an Elemental Menace, The only thing I believe about nature is the act of Reincarnation; But does it exist outside of Isekai Anime? My Spirit Animal is actually, well, an Eagle. God Forbid. But nothing else in nature will allow me an audience of the massacre of this BLOB. Surrak Dragonclaw needs no question. The Temur Frontier admires the Dragon's Use of Savagery (Thus their Insignia being a Claw), & fight to survive like rabid Feral Beasts. In fact, their colors are actually the most common in the Whole Ice Age Block (Coldsnap included.), thus the Siberian Shaman Culturistics fit them just fine; but they don't for me. I like cooler areas, but this is more akin to the Polar Ice Caps. Plus, Surrak actually seems like a reckless Khan anyway. He's out, & from there, so is Yasova. This leaves us with 2 more Choices (3 if anyone knows of Maelstrom Wanderer 's backstory.): Intet, the Dreamer , or Riku of Two Reflections . Intet has absolutely nothing known unless you can get a copy of MTG: Commander 2011's Mirror Mastery; which also includes Riku of Two Reflections . The latter seems to fit some aspects of me, but ABSOULTELY NOTHING is known about Intet, the Dreamer

Well, it's down to 2 (Or 3.) Legendary Creatures. If you still have the time, strengthen your weak-willed selves if you want to know the 7 Cards of the Spellbook prior to now. I still ponder about this...

Schadowpop on How valuable are creature manatokens?

1 month ago

Dear people from Tapped Out,

I have been very excited about constructing an Eldrazi Tribal deck. This will be my second deck, I will take a considerate amount of time to carefully construct this investment.

I have come as far to construct a reasonable mana base (still up for change if needed) and a few cards to help me through early game. I still want to include cards like Explosive Vegetation and Descendants' Path .

I have defined a strategy:

  • Early game: ramp mana, cast Animar, Soul of Elements
  • Mid game: protect Animar, cast small creatures and tutor big ones or fix card advantage
  • End game: cast the big creatures, end it.

My question arose when I was evaluating cards like: Drowner of Hope , Rapacious One and Brood Monitor , which create manatokens. These are all cards with CMC ≥5. Thus I consider these cards castable mid-game. According to my strategy I want to create manaramp (e.g. manatokens) earlygame, not midgame

This conflict made me think to myself: How valuable is creating tokens? What is your guys' opinions, are these tokencreators worth keeping in my deck and should I change strategy or do I just toss em out?

All feedback is welcome! I'd love to hear your opinion.

(CAUTION: A Huge List of CMDRS dead ahead. If you can't comply, remember that I apologized for the huge wall.)

Well, I was just told how to do a Folder, but to choose what for decks is another thing entirely. Especially if such decks are either:

A: What Everyone Plays B: Are good, but have since been outdated by a year C: Are Tribal Leaders in a Specific Sense (No Morophon, the Boundless please.) D: Not Underdog CMDRs. E: Other.

Let's Just assume we use that cEDH Deck Tier List One-by-One; but w/ a new rule for Playtesting such decks so none of the cEDH Decks win out of overall ratios ~100% of the time; CHANNELFIREBALL-style. That said, From using the Tier List, I require the following CMDR Decks to not have cEDH Level Power, but are these:

Tier 0:

Thrasios, Triton Hero & Tymna the Weaver Partners

Tier 1:

Kess, Dissident Mage

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom

The First Sliver (Not as a Sliver Tribe Leader)

The Gitrog Monster

Urza, Lord High Artificer

Vial Smasher the Fierce

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Zur the Enchanter

(NOTE: Unknown if Kraum, Ludevic's Opus & Vial Smasher the Fierce need to be Parters to be of this level.)

Tier 2:

Animar, Soul of Elements (Morph Decks not allowed.)

Baral, Chief of Compliance (Get your Counterspells Ready!)

Brago, King Eternal

Breya, Etherium Shaper

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician

Edric, Spymaster of Trest

General Tazri (Mandatory Ally Tribe Leader)

Ghave, Guru of Spores

God-Eternal Kefnet

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain

Kykar, Wind's Fury

Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Narset, Enlightened Master

Niv-Mizzet, Parun

Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Oona, Queen of the Fae

Prime Speaker Vannifar

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher

Ramos, Dragon Engine

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter

Scion of the Ur-Dragon (Possible Dragon Tribe Leader)

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

Sidisi, Undead Vizier

Sisay, Weatherlight Captain

Taigam, Ojutai Master

Tana, the Bloodsower

Tasigur, the Golden Fang

Teferi, Temporal Archmage

The Mimeoplasm

Varolz, the Scar-Striped

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent

Yarok, the Desecrated

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Tier 3: WIP

But, yeah, you get the picture, right? Since I can't find such decks on my own to put in such a folder for decks worth testing against your own. Rules are as follows though:

  1. It needs to be up to date, prior to the Iona, Shield of Emeria & Paradox Engine bans & Painter's Servant unbanning/CMDR 2019's release; or just not include any of those at all.

  2. Each deck must not be of cEDH-level power; just imagine how much hell I'd have to playthrough against something just to beat a Thrasios/Tymna Partners deck just to have my claim on this notion nullified.

  3. Decks must include CMDRs that are Popular, were Popular as well as Tribal Decks w/ Good Tribe Leaders (For example: The First Sliver & Sliver Queen do not fit this category where Sliver Overlord does fit the Sliver Tribe Leadership. Scion of the Ur-Dragon & The Ur-Dragon can both count as Dragon Tribe CMDRs. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is actually a bad CMDR to use in Superfriends, but Shines in all Counter Life. Make good use of that instead of making a 4< Color Walkers Deck. The rulings go on...)

I know this is too much for now, but I'm making a folder for Playtesting w/ decks as everyone kept telling me to do so; now I want to hold my end of the Bargain. But I seriously need help from you to do this. If you can find any decks here to add to such a Folder, put it on the comments below.

(& no, It's not like it's a personal thing! Anyone is allowed to use it when it's finished!)

When playing with Animar, Soul of Elements does his ability reduce the cost to turn a morph face up as your paying for a creature and does it add a counter to animar?

Sorry for the late reply. I've been very busy lately. I thought about Gnat Miser for the sideboard, but they're really most useful as a 4x. If your opponent is playing burn or midrange, they'll usually be able to cast enough cards to negate 1x or even 2x Gnat Miser s. I'm just not sure I have the sideboard space for it.

I agree about Platinum Angel . Solemnity is brutal. I'll definitely be switching Melira, Sylvok Outcast for it. (Wow, another card that can shut down Animar, Soul of Elements . I have an Animar EDH deck that needs rebuilding, but I digress.)

OptimalGreen Uhhh...you may want to carefully read those cards. Nature's Lore and Three Visits are miles better than lousy Rampant Growth , and not for the reason you stated (that it gets a Forest ). Rampant Growth gets a basic land into play TAPPED - Nature's Lore and Three Visits get a Forest into play UNTAPPED, and both are commonly played EDH ramp spells.

Also, I didn't mention a peep about Chrome Mox , Mox Diamond etc so including those in your rebuttal is superfluous. Those types of ramp artifacts produce colored mana before turn 2 so of course they are in. I cannot recall playing against a tuned Animar, Soul of Elements deck with the rocks that produce colorless mana because they are actually not good in competitive Animar. This is because of the need to produce colored mana for the necessary turn 2 Animar.

Finally, we all know that artifact destruction and artifact hate is ever-abundant in Edh, whether competitive or casual. Having diversity in one's ramp suite is a good thing, and having the specific two 2-mana sorceries mentioned above is a great way to apply that concept.

Oh, additionally... the whole "top tier" label in Edh is quite subjective - this is why I placed that dubious monicker in quotation marks in my previous post.

OptimalGreen: Oh...just for the sake of the hopefully good natured debate at hand, there in fact IS a "top tier" deck that uses all the one-drop mana dorks available to its color identity and uses ZERO rocks, not even Sol Ring or Mana Crypt ...and is name Animar, Soul of Elements . So there...

But also understand that I am not reccomending the Animar plan for this deck, just a slight tweak in the ramp suite.
