Sehe nicht den Sinn bei Chromatic Sphere & Mana Cylix, die sind nur interessant bei multicolor decks (du gewinnst mit ihnen kein mana, kannst es nur umwandeln).

Vorschlag:

raus: 2x Plains, 1x Mazemind Tome, 1x Giver of Runes, Chromatic Sphere & Mana Cylix

rein: 2x Angel of Vitality, 4x Sejiri Shelter (Länder und gleichzeitig ersatz für Giver of runes)

Man könnte sich überlegen noch die letzten beiden Giver of Runes mit Lightning Greaves zu ersetzen... bleibt wahrscheinlich länger auf dem Feld als Giver of Runes und kann Lyra Dawnbringer haste geben - direkt 5 Leben und evtl. ein Engel. Und du hast sehr viele 1 cost spells.

princeharperman hey! glad you enjoy it. admittedly I haven't touched this list in a while, and personally feel like it isn't "up to snuff" with modern day cEDH due to all of the strong recent cards that have come out. if that doesn't bother you, carry on!

Auriok Salvagers and Lion's Eye Diamond together creates infinite mana -- with Auriok Salvagers in play, play/activate Lion's Eye Diamond, then use Auriok Salvagers's effect to return Lion's Eye Diamond to the hand. play LED again, activate it, repeat. each time you use LED this way, you'll net 1 white mana, so you'll want to repeat until you have infinite mana. from there, you can use Auriok Salvagers to infinitely play & return Chromatic Sphere. since you already have infinite mana by this point, you don't have to worry about playing LED, so any cards drawn with Chromatic Sphere are safe in your hand. you can keep going until your deck is in your hand, and then win through something like Heliod, Sun-Crowned & Walking Ballista.

shepherdofangels Sure! The basic idea is to play lots of 1-drop artifact trinkets that you can sacrifice to draw more. Stuff like Chromatic Sphere. If ich-tekik is out when you sacrifice it, then all of your golems get bigger and you draw another card that hopefully gives you another trinket to play, like Conjurer's Bauble.

Umori, the Collector and Foundry Inspector can make all of the trinkets free to cast which makes it possible to play and sacrifice even more in one turn. And if you have Bolas's Citadel or Mystic Forge this makes it even easier to cast like 10-15 spells in a turn.

The payoff for this kind of storm is twofold. Again, with ich-tekik your stuff gets bigger every time you sac an artifact. But there are also storm payoffs like Aetherflux Reservoir, Weather the Storm Tendrils of Agony etc.

Snips500: i think there would be enough ways around it you don't have to worry. the cards don't even have to say "any color". something like Utopia Sprawl would also work for the decks that can run it. and theres things like Chromatic Star and Chromatic Sphere. or Chromatic Lantern. any deck can run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. just gotta look.

there's a lot of cards out there that destroy all enchantments in one swoop. Since this looks to me like a slow board build, you might as well be playing lots of counterspells and creature removal to hold off opposing plays while you steadily drop shrines. Also I would remove the White and Green shrines from your Mainboard and focus on Red, Blue and Black ones. Red damages your enemy so you can win, Black does that and disrupts his hand by making him discard, Blue keeps your hand fresh and searches for answers. Also, Mirror Gallery can compensate your legendary handicap.

So, to sumarize, you need counterspells like Mana Leak, Dispel, Spell Snare, Spell Pierce, Remand, Rune Snag or Negate.

You need mass removal like Pyroclasm, Slagstorm, Chain Reaction, Anger of the Gods, Ratchet Bomb, Engineered Explosives, Cyclonic Rift, Languish, Damnation or Ritual of Soot.

You need a stronger and more consistent mana base. Removing 2 colors will help you a lot. Dual lands, check lands, fetch lands and shock lands will do you wonders. Chromatic Sphere or Chromatic Star will help fill the gaps while refunding themselves instead of Pentad Prism.

Paradox Haze might work to trigger the Shrines an additional time and also in combo with Sanctum of All.

I understand this isn't a deck that's meant to be a tournament winner, but mostly to play on multiplayer with friends, but still, there's improvements to be made here that would make your build more frightning to others and fun for you. Hope I helped :)

Coward_Token, perhaps WotC may reprint it? We can always hope for that.

On that subject, I am very glad to see that Lightning Bolt is being reprinted, again, but why did WotC not give it new artwork? Its current artwork is nice, but it has been used many times, by this time, so I feel that it deserves new artwork, and the same is true for Chromatic Sphere, as well, whose current artwork I feel is rather dull and unexciting.
