Chimil, the Inner Sun

Legendary Artifact

Spells you control can't be countered.

At the beginning of your end step, discover 5. (To discover 5, exile cards from the top your library until you exile a nonland card with converted mana cost/mana value 5 or less. Cast it without paying its mana cost or put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.)

Hey , I play tested this version and the 60 card version and found this one to be more consistent and more safer. This deck has a chance but against the current vampire meta , it was really difficult to win against.

I did tweak the deck a little and added

Chimil, the Inner Sun Triskaidekaphile and I boarded in Approach.

I primarily play combo decks in every format so I am glad I found an actually good and entertaining combo deck to play with. (Except Commander , not a fan of that format.)

A) Just another mana rock with sub-utility, acting as an equipment mid-to-late game.

B) Considered in the original decklist, however I've been favoring non-basic lands that offer side tech for the deck.

C) Not sure about this one. Nonbo with Abstruse Archaic and our own commander Kozilek, the Great Distortion.

D, E, F, G) Appreciate the thorough evaluation here of Chimil, the Inner Sun. Will play around your other suggestions against counterspells/interaction with Defense Grid and/or Cavern of Souls. For sure, I would consider these cards over Conqueror's Flail.

H) Noted! Might switch The Immortal Sun for Blinkmoth Urn.

I) Metalworker Very good card that ramps hard and can combo off with certain pieces in play. Current decklist runs pretty well without it due to the amount of fast mana, mana rocks, and cost reducers that are already in the deck.

  1. Got you, wasn't sure of intended power level but I saw some combos and thought you might want more. I will say, most people who do play against stax would prefer for that user to have combos to end the game rather than suffer. Nevertheless, noted.
  2. As above
  3. Expedition map could find you blinkmoth well which is nice.
  4. Great
  5. The combo is fun but yes, niche. But Karn himself is great. In EDH, people are bound to have lots of mana rocks. But if it isn't for you, I understand.
  6. Perfect swap

A) What is the purpose of The Irencrag?

B) Darksteel Citadel - Artifact count increase

C) Cursed Totem - Only anti-synergy with one card in your deck and can stop mana dorks and other pesky abilities. Pairs well with torpor orb.

D) Regarding your question if Chimil, the Inner Sun, I suppose it would depend on your meta's amount of blue players. My issue with it is that it, itself can be countered. My other issue is that sometimes there is a card thats 6cmc+ and you lose it because of it. It can produce some value for sure. If you're really worried about blue, then perhaps add some of the following....

E) Cavern of Souls - Easiest solution

F) Conqueror's Flail - Might not be the best but forces interaction pre-combat. Not just anti-blue either.

G) Defense Grid - The least impactful but easiest to use. You only have one instant and you don't need to equip anything.

Do be aware that they can still activate abilities, just not cast spells. Cursed totem could fix that of course, just worth mentioning. I love your numbering system, great job.

Other cards in your maybeboard worth including are....

H) Blinkmoth Urn - Synergy with blinkmoth well and will always put you ahead of everyone else.

I) Metalworker - Assuming this is due to $ or power limiting reasons?

Appreciate the feedback!

  1. Fantastic little combo with built in utility from either card, however I've been leaning towards keeping the deck towards high power in casual. So that's why the current list only has one combo so far which is Forsaken Monument + Basalt Monolith.
  2. As above.
  3. This is an interesting land. Was considering Clock of Omens at one point for tapping artifacts. May test how well Blinkmoth Well works with Winter Orb and Trinisphere as I've been favoring stax lately in colorless.
  4. Have never seen this little artifact before and it's hefty in utility. Synergy with Emrakul, the Promised End and some recursion sounds spicy. Will test this in the future.
  5. Considered Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice in the original decklist, however I found that the cards were too niche when played separately and decided to cut them for some fun/win more cards such as Helm of the Host and Mirage Mirror. Even keeping Rise of the Eldrazi in the decklist.
  6. I was wondering about adding some recursion in and missed this little include. Arch of Orazca -> Buried Ruin

One question from me to you is: how do you feel about Chimil, the Inner Sun? On paper, I like its utility in preventing counterspells and discovering cards off the library the same turn it comes into play, but I have yet to play test it.

Happy new years Mortlocke,

May this message find you and yours all well and good.

I come seeking an opinion on a particular card that I think I am going to take a punt on. Chimil, the Inner Sun seems really good. Discover 5 is right at the top end of the Sliver creature spells, and ultimately whatever I show can be put in hand if needed. Also makes all your spells uncounterable. Am torn on what to cut to give it a crack. Think maybe cut Carpet of Flowers or Mirri's Guile. Leaning towards Carpet as tbh, when I play it, most just stop playing Islands lol.

Anyway, hope you are well, and look forward to your response

Here's some spice!

So, as with any other commander, if you want it to be efficient you're gonna need 4 things: Synergistic win conditions, card draw, mana ramp & tutors.

Unfortunately achieving any of these 4 things is going to be exceptionally difficult with no colors lol.

I would recommend changing the commander to Karn, Legacy Reforged, as well as adding a good amount of mana rocks like Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, & Thran Dynamo to help get you where you're going. Cards like Horizon Stone, Sword of the Animist & Bitterthorn, Nissa's Animus could also be helpful. Cost reducers like Foundry Inspector, Mycosynth Golem & Cloud Key could be lumped in here as well.

Card draw however is going to be a total pain unless you have a ton of mana, which is why I put ramp first. Cards like The Immortal Sun, Chimil, the Inner Sun & Mind's Eye can provide a lot of value, but if you don't have the mana to power them out it's no bueno. There are cheaper options that will be easier to get out earlier in the game like The One Ring, Scroll Rack & Sensei's Divining Top to consider too.

Tutors and wincons...I am at a loss for. Outside of running some really brutal stax like God-Pharaoh's Statue, Trinisphere, Thorn of Amethyst & Karn, the Great Creator alongside a good ole beatdown strategy, I don't really see how colorless decks can win lol. Luckily there are lots of colorless stax and beaters for you to choose from.

Some additional value pieces to consider before I get out of here: Wandering Archaic  Flip, Forsaken Monument, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, Krark-Clan Ironworks & maybe even Blightsteel Colossus. Peace!

Hey buddy! Good to see you're still using this powerhouse deck. Have you considered Chimil, the Inner Sun?

Thank you for the kind words Tsukimi, I appreciate it. I've updated the deck a bit more since you possibly play-tested it, with some notable additions being Inti, Seneschal of the Sun, Chimil, the Inner Sun, Breeches, Eager Pillager, The Flux, and Bonehoard Dracosaur.

Prosper was my first toe dip into Rakdos, and something I've had a lot of fun with. At the time that I put the deck together I thought this would just be a niche design space, and not a major slice of the pie for Red over the following years.
