Cryptolith Rite Discussion
1 week ago
Thanks for the suggestions. I’m trying to keep the instant and sorcery count low because of Primal Surge . Oath of Druids seems like a card you’d play against a creature deck, and not in one. Crusade would be nice, but there are both white and green creatures in the deck and there are other cards that do the same thing but are better. I’ll keep looking in that regard. Lastly, I don’t understand your logic behind Wheel of Sun and Moon if you could explain that to me.
I may add Cryptolith Rite if it seems like it would be worth it, but as I said I need enchantments/artifacts that ramp instead of instants/sorceries.

The new Full Flowering isn't too bad for larger tokens in fewer numbers later on if you have mana to spare.
Ajani, Strength of the Pride is a funny finisher with a bunch of tokens/lifegain;

Damn, I actually didnt even think about the tokens triggering experience counters, that's a really good point. Those cards become a lot better in that sense. I think I misunderstood your game plan, I was pushing towards a much grindier experience-counters-matters build, since players cant interact with the experience counters I feel as thought it provides an extreme inevitability. Also, something I thought of is infect creatures. They definitely are bad without trample but its something interesting to think of as a 1-of to just randomly dump counters on and kill someone, especially Blighted Agent since it can't be blocked. Also, my thinking with hardened scales is that it synergizes really well with other proliferate effects, so if you aren't running them it probably isn't worth adding. Finally, I think Nest Invader is not worth it. If you wanted to get the turn three ezuri Birds of Paradise is better because it saves you 1 mana for other spells, has flying, taps for colors, and is reusable. It's worth more than a single experience counter. I also think squirrel nest is less good when you aren't focusing on winning through it. I think that you could run Earthcraft as a hasty Cryptolith Rite and then not look back.

You know why Cryptolith Rite is cool? Imagine I have 6 lands and cast Beacon of Creation and Cryptolith Rite , then next turn I tap all my creatures to pay for some spell to animate my lands and attack with them: Boom, I've just done magic backwards.

Harvest Season , Animist's Awakening , Explosive Vegetation , Revel of the Fallen God , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip or Cryptolith Rite provide even more mana so you can cast bigger spells; I like adding more mana dorks to this so that you can use them for mana or later conspire ramp spells. Additionally X spells get really dank Jaya's Immolating Inferno can be a ridiculous finisher if you can put enough mana and conspire it. Shamanic Revelation or Harmonize can also give you some really good card draw, even just using Shamanic Revelation after casting Wort gives you 6 cards! In Red/Green. For more spicy, and a little less budget picks, I'd recommend: Lotus Cobra for those crazy ramp turns, Skullclamp lots of 1/1 tokens that can be turned into card draw, Pyromancer's Goggles who doesn't love copies?, Throne of the God-Pharaoh if you tap to conspire and then get a deal X trigger for copying spells it really adds up fast, if you'd like I can put my Wort, the Raidmother list up on to tappedout and you can add any other cards you like the look of.

Plays exceptionally well with aristocrat and friends. Great tokens for mana sac or skullclamp cards. Draw and creatures and life baked into the command zone. Green gives access to ramp for Hailfire
Many of the cards you will want you will either have or be cheap to acquire. Some ez deck tech Merciless Executioner + friends, Caustic Caterpillar , Golgari Grave-Troll + other dredgers, Llanowar Elves + other cheap dorks, Beastmaster Ascension and other effective token beatdown cards, Viscera Seer + other sac effects. I also highly recommend Cryptolith Rite or Citanul Hierophants . Slot in a handful of the fantastic removal that G/B offers, some tutors, and big beaters for the reanimates, and its a deck
