Chromatic Orrery

Legendary Artifact

You may spend mana as though it were mana of any colour.

Empress Galina, Magus of the Bazaar, and Ulamog's Dreadsire are some other strong tap abilities on creatures.

Chromatic Orrery is a must-have for artifact untapping shenanigans, and Moonsilver Key can help find it!

Mystic Forge + artifact cost reducer + Sensei's Divining Top = Draw your entire deck

Chromatic Orrery/Everflowing Chalice (4 Counters) + Voltaic key + rings =

Blinkmoth Well + winter orb = You untap, others don't. Should you enjoy having some mild stax, Storage Matrix is a potential consideration which works as well.

Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant - Synergy with emrakrul. It's great to flash in after a vandablast

Karn, the Great Creator - One sided nullrod which can recur exiled artifacts and can animate opposing artifacts for you to destroy. Adding Myconsith lattice to it would be a hard lock.

Buried Ruin - Recursion

Ghaileon +1 , void mirror + knowledge pool....that's one I haven't heard of. Note: You have your commander in your decklist, removing it allows you to get one more spot for one of the cards below....

Mystic Forge + Sensei's Divining Top + artifact cost reducer/Ugin, the Ineffable = Draw your whole deck

Basalt + forsaken = infinite

Basalt + Rings = infinite + top = Draw and cast your entire deck

Ancient Tomb - Ramp

Karn, the Great Creator + Lattice = Hard lock. Better than the void mirror + knowledge pool lock IMO as karn can act as artifact recursion (for the key pieces which will get exiled)

Everflowing Chalice (4 counters) + Voltaic Key + rings = infinite + top = draw your whole deck

Chromatic Orrery + Voltaic Key + rings = infinite

I had a couple questions regarding creature card choices like Cathodion, Chronomaton, Wall of Junk. Are these just cheap artifacts to increase your artifact count? Why not swap them out for something like Lightning Greaves which also add to your artifact count and protect your commander?

Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant - Recover from wipes. Also goes well with Emrakul, the Promised End should you wish to add an eldrazi as an alt wincon.

Looking forward to hearing your response, great deck. Makes me want to build one

Thanks for checking my deck out, I appreciate it! No prob, happy to help.

Some of your swaps look pretty good. I would still recommend to try some lower cmc rocks than Chromatic Orrery. That 7 cmc can be a bit steep for ramp that's supposed to help set up more on earlier turns. Even Cursed Mirror could be a cool option since it can ETB as a copy of any creature and act as ramp.

If you want to round out your go-wide theme a bit more, I'd recommend Commissar Severina Raine as another group slug option that can also act as a draw piece.

Ojer Taq, Deepest Foundation  Flip is pretty cool. If you want to lean into the group slug damage stuff, give Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might  Flip another look. Most of the ping damage in the group slug stuff is 1-2 damage, so Ojer Axonil would bump that up to 4. Most of the group slug/ping options used by Isshin decks are Red. Speaking of which, Impact Tremors, Witty Roastmaster, and Purphoros, God of the Forge are all great options if you're going to be cranking out creature tokens.

Mondrak, Glory Dominus has been really solid for me as a token doubler and solid attacker/defender from the Indestructible counter. Mondrak also has a bit more versatility than Ojer Taq, since it can double all your tokens, although tripling creature tokens is pretty cool.

If you like the deathtouch anthem from Ankle Shanker, def check out Vault of the Archangel and Kaya, Geist Hunter. Kaya is also another token doubler that is a more budget option than both Mondrak and Ojer Taq.

Best of luck with your deck. Keep me posted on how it works out for you

How about Cunning Rhetoric or Chromatic Orrery for mana fixing your unspent black mana? You can fix Jengantha's too, as long as you still use it on a colored cost.

Opposition Agent is in a similar boat.

GameDragon111 on Ur-Dragon (Recs. Needed)

When running decks with 5 colors, I find it useful to have mana fixers such as Chromatic Lantern and Chromatic Orrery. If you draw one of them and have enough mana of any color, you can use them to turn all of your mana into all colors.

Also, since you have a 5 color tribal, Morophon, the Boundless can help you with the different colors, reducing the colored mana you need to pay for all of your dragon cards.

DreadKhan on I Put a Spell On You // Lynde, Cheerful Tormentor

Have you ever thought about getting Lynde a nice pet? I'm thinking something like a cute little kitten? With this out you can move around your Curses I think, which could be useful to get them off of you sooner when you save them. It also refreshes any of your non-aura enchantments that benefit from it (who doesn't want to use Captive Audience vs all three opponents?). It's also good with ramp rocks that tap for more than 1 mana that ETB untapped (Relic of Sauron seems generally good in Grixis, but it's 2 free mana in Grixis each time you cast a non-creature, obviously Chromatic Orrery is even funnier), it can offer a huge amount of ramp that way.

legendofa on How does Rowan, Scion of …

10 months ago

Rowan, Scion of War's activated ability doesn't add mana; it only reduces generic costs. Let's say you activate Necropotence five times, so you pay and lose 5 life. You want to cast Breath of Malfegor, so you activate Rowan, Scion's ability. No mana is added to your mana pool, but Breath of Malfegor now costs less. This only reduces the generic cost, so you still have to pay .

You can tap the Chromatic Orrery to pay for the , but there is no effect here that can reduce or ignore colored mana costs. Those still have to be paid normally.
