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.

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.

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.

Let's say I have a Rowan, Scion of War and a Chromatic Orrery on the battlefield. I pay a bunch of life to Necropotence, then activate Rowan, Scion of War. Will I be able to cast red and black spells for free as long as I have the Chromatic Orrery on the field? From my understanding, since it doesn't say that all spells are colorless like Mycosynth Lattice, but says that you may spend mana as though it were any color, that you would be able to cast them for free. But on the other hand, since it's a replacement effect for spending your mana and not making your spells colorless, you wouldn't be able to because Rowan specifically reduces cost to red/black spells. I have a feeling it's the latter, but I just wanna make sure.

Sorry if the wording is confusing, my ADD brain thinks ahead too far sometimes and forgets filler in order to make my ramblings comprehensible.

LeonSpires on Sisay Planeswalker cEDH Midrange

@ KayneMarco sure thing! Thank you for your questions.

Sisay, Weatherlight Captain base power is 2/2 and she "gets +1/+1 for each color among other legendary permanents you control." Cultist of the Absolute is a black legendary permanent so +1/+1. Furthermore Cultist of the Absolute's text box says "Commander creatures you own get +3/+3..."


The advantage of running the Cultist of the Absolute and Chromatic Orrery line is that you do not need to start with Bloom Tender / Faeburrow Elder instead you only need mana dorks / mana rocks / lands that tap for .

Cultist of the Absolute makes it so Sisay can fetch Dihada, Binder of Wills who produces the treasure to activate Sisay again and makes it so Sisay is big enough to fetch Chromatic Orrery. Orrery then acts as a replacement for Bloom Tender / Faeburrow Elder as it makes it so "You may spend mana as though it were mana of any color" and it taps for .

Good lord, the Commander Masters precons look even more abysmal when compared to these Eldraine precons. These precons are straight fire and have the same-if-not-better quality, yet are still reasonably costed.

I hadn't thought about this until Saffron Olive talked about it on the mtggoldfish podcast, but The Irencrag is the first 2 cmc mana rock printed into Standard in over a decade. Interesting to see how it fares.

Does 'Quick Study' not just become an auto include in most blue commander decks? Divination doesn't see much play but adding instant speed makes it much more powerful.

Court of Ardenvale might just make it into my Polukranos, Engine of Ruin  Flip deck as Lifeline #3.

Coward_Token, my guess is they were trying to be very careful with Throne of Eldraine. What you suggested would be a significantly powercrept Thran Dynamo or Gilded Lotus. I feel like they were conscientious of that exact problem when designing it. This card honestly strikes me as a Chromatic Orrery-light for mono-colored decks.
