Coldsteel Heart Discussion

lagotripha on Naya Zoo/Christmas Snow

I'm not sure about glacial/scrying sheets- Into the north is slow, scrying sheets takes you off of desperately needed coloured mana and glacial refills your hand, but can't pick up gas (most creatures non-snow), so Winding Way or Once Upon a Time might be stronger. They are great cards if you want to be midrange, but this is a zoo list.

Since your creatures mostly care about forests (sorry wild nacatyl), you might look at increasing the forest count and running more artifact fixing ( Springleaf Drum , Chromatic Sphere , Navigator's Compass , Paradise Mantle ), which would also let you pick up Shrapnel Blast to finish games. While I'm mentioning burn options, I have seen Tribal Flames in non budget versions of these lists- representing ten points of burn from flames/blast will win games.

There is also the option of trying to make your creatures mostly playable with green mana (like Sunblade Elf , Lupine Prototype or Soultether Golem ), then cast Lush Growth / Nylea's Presence or get a singleton Sacred Foundry off Flower / Flourish . This is a bit more fragile.

If you want to go harder into snow-matters, Boreal Druid and Coldsteel Heart offer ramp, while Frostwalk Bastion is a decent manland, but that will look more like a midrange value list (eventually becoming another Ice-Fang Coatl list, and less like zoo, and may call for dropping to two colours on a budget.

If you do want to move up in CMC, Knight of New Alara offers multicolour-matters synergy, while the Naya Hushblade cycle isn't awful.

Site crashed, got ninja'd, still posting.

Iona, Imperial Angel

Legendary Creature - Angel

Flying

When Iona, Imperial Angel enters the battlefield you may choose a color. Creatures on the battlefield of the chosen color get +1/+1 and can't attack you unless their controller pays for each creature they control that's attacking you.

, : Draw X cards.

5/5


Evasion, anthem, prison, card advantage and all packed onto a 5/5 flyer for CMC. With Sol Ring and another stone such as Fellwar Stone , Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , etc you could have her out as early as T3.


Shimmering Rainbowscale

Creature - Merfolk Wizard

Flash

When you cast Shimmering Rainbowscale, you may counter target instant or sorcery.

1/2


Make a mono-green Dragon.

I would swap Coldsteel Heart out for Arcum's Astrolabe to help with the fixing, then get rid of both of your two color snow lands for cheap you could get Game Trail and Foreboding Ruins which will get you the right mana on time, hopefully. On a similar note, you might consider Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse for lands as once in the graveyard they can help you cast Tombstalker . I also think your deck should be called "More for Less" which would make more sense for the theme you're going after.

Hazankob on Debate: Signets or Talismans

I play casual/no tutor so signets all the way.

In a 3 color deck I'll run all 3 relevant signets every time. I wouldn't be against running both in a two-color non-green deck to help make up for no Cultivate / Kodama's Reach though, but I'd easily be just as happy with a Coldsteel Heart , same goes for the diamonds in a mono-color deck.

I like the direction and style you've got but you have almost no ramp and too few lands. Your average CMC is low but not that low. Statistically the player with the most mana wins. The prevailing wisdom is ~8 ramp pieces and you have one. The prevailing wisdom is 38 lands in the average baseline, though I prefer to go down to 36 and have solid low-CMC ramp. I'll go even lower if there is even more ramp--particularly 1-CMC mana dorks. None of those in Boros colors though.

I like where your removal and utility is.

I'd recommend some of these: Wayfarer's Bauble , Prismatic Lens , Star Compass , Boros Signet , Sol Ring , Talisman of Conviction , Fire Diamond , Marble Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , Hedron Archive , Worn Powerstone , Darksteel Ingot . Creatures like Palladium Myr , Gold Myr , and Iron Myr are efficient and can serve double duty to crew vehicles, but they're susceptible to board wipes. Pros and cons.

Honestly Arcane Signet is probably a better option than Coldsteel Heart

@Chesu: Alright. Once I find a good replacement for Ruby Medallion that's Color Neutral, & cut Fire Diamond for Coldsteel Heart , I'll do just that; Swap Mons for Krenko #1 as CMDR; wait; one more thing for real. I was thinking of using a term of Ultimate Mindlessness. Gobs seems to be known for this; & yet, they are capable of Artifice Creation. But what words demonstrate mindlessness to not just the Pinnacle, & Absolute form, but what such a form can destroy the concept of the Mind? I'm having a weird knack for giving my CMDR Decknames Codex names based on the ultimate level of what the deck in question's theme shows.

BUMPING BY A PLAYA!

I'll try to find some combos that work w/ Artifice, though I dunno if Coldsteel Heart is any better than Fire Diamond , but What About Prism Ring ? A Medallion can't possibly beat this... Any thoughts? I just wonder what can help w/ such combos. For now, (& I regret to DO this yet again...) I'd like some suggestions for cuts for this deck; AND some adds in Goblin Tribal that have Flying; this deck has no option against Flying/Horsemanship Creatures, & I'd actually like some of this, please.

That said, I'm going to have to predict these will be cut:

Patron of the Akki : Not even a Gob, is powerful, but can't even fly. a WASTE .

Goblin Sharpshooter : Death to something is required for something that only does 1 Damage; even doubling damage is MINISCULE in this case. That, & it DOESN'T target Walkers, which can be a separate target from the Player now; damn new rulings... & this is also concrete proof we need more firearms in MTG; & Plainswalk Back; just look at the Plains Art of our age & dare to say: "It should never return.". Even Sogen translates to Grassland, & Knights, Soldiers, Aven, Angels, even Spirits have the upper hand in such an area here over any Conventional Non- Creature. Even if it's a Plains at it's most basic.

Reckless One : I suppose this is a Meta-Call? For me, this Avatar is just a dumber(er) Fatty than even an Hamletback Goliath . But what the crap should I know? This deck seems to want to Put into Play LOTS of Gobs...

Zo-Zu the Punisher : This deck heavily relies on Gobs, & Mana; but if the latter in the form of Lands punishes you just for playing them (Especially when you have Crucible of Worlds .), Something is truly off for this kind of Gob that's better off Hatebearing you.

Potential Changes?:

Fire Diamond >>> Coldsteel Heart : Both are Cast, Both are Rocks that ETB tapped, but Coldsteel Heart at least gives you a choice of what mana it can use; & is a Snow Permanent to add to the damage. Replace your Damn Diamonds w/ this Relic; Frozen in Time.

Ruby Medallion >>> Prism Ring : Why screw w/ a Medallion that does too little for , when you got the ULTIMATE MOOD RING; & a Genuine one at that, at , & while it won't give you any discount, prepare to gain so much life, it's criminal. Now, uh... What's the whole set of Colors for moods? I, mean, there's like 66, 67 of them, God Forbid? That's one hell of a Rainbow of a Prism. Sadly I couldn't find any better anyway... Your thoughts on this would be good...

&... That's all I got... Any ideas for cuts (Or adds; I still can't find any anti-flyers...) would be great. I wonder if there is a cheap artifact that allows your spells to be less; & no, The Immortal Sun doesn't count...

Thanks for the help thus far... :)

Oh, & about the Plains in Question so we can get Plainswalk back:

Plains (This is a HUGE area in Ravnica. No Grass Anywhere.)

Plains (What kind of Non- Creature has the upper hand in something BESIDES mere SoGen?!)

Plains (Oketra says Hello, untrue lives.)

I hope this helps. I'll talk later. Good luck for cuts and/or adds. :)
