Gilded Lotus


: Gain three mana of any one color.

legendofa on Feldon, Evocation Grandmaster

1 week ago

Proofreading tip: You have Falon in the name, Faldon in the typeline, and Feldon in the effect.

As far as it goes mechanically, it's going to take two turns before you can use the second ability. This needs a very hard control shell to work in. It provides mana so you can save your lands and whatever for instants and activated abilities. It's going to take a couple of turns to be better than Gilded Lotus, but then it gets a lot better.

What kind of deck do you envision this going into?

My deck Karn's Ballistic Destruction v2 uses the infinity combo of Gilded Lotus, Voltaic Construct, Walking Ballista for the win con. I'd probably swap Damnation, and Ashiok, Dream Render

Eisbeutel Kamigawa actually performed fairly well and there will be a ton of changes once I add in the new Baldur’s Gate additions! I haven’t tweaked the decklist to reflect changes yet because I’ve been on a sort of hiatus due to switching jobs and having a bit less time to play as a result, but my schedule is stabilizing and I’m getting back to playing on a more regular basis! I’ll pop in and update the decklist and description tabs hopefully before too long, I apologize for the wait! And Bootleggers' Stash works wonders as well, I removed Gilded Lotus to add mine in!

Has this deck been in your rotation for 9 years? Awesome! I have my own love bug that just won't quit: The Red Terror: Akroma's Manifesto

jaymc1130 on How does Library of Leng …

2 months ago

Library of Leng is indeed a wonky card, but it's a pretty nifty combo piece within certain types of discard concept strategies.

When it comes to Madness, what you essentially have is two replacement effects modifying the same instance of the card being discarded, so you have a choice of which you want to apply. You can either discard the card into exile, or you may discard it to the top of your library. If you discard it into exile, then Library of Leng will no longer see an effect to replace and you then have the choice of casting the card for it's Madness cost or putting it into your graveyard. If you discard it to the top of your library then the Madness ability will no longer see an effect to replace, the card will not be in exile, and you will not be able to cast it for it's Madness cost. In practical terms, Madness and Library will not combo together to produce a cool line of play. In real world terms, Anje decks might not mind, they might be very happy to discard the card to the top of the library and repeatedly draw and discard it using Anje's ability. With a card like Glint-Horn Buccaneer in play, for example, this would kill opponents.

A mechanic with better synergy with Library of Leng is Cycling. Cycling cards discard themselves first, then draw a card. This can be used to cycle the same card over and over again, and a similar situation as to the aforementioned Buccaneer line of play can occur with a card like Drannith Stinger in play killing opponents as a result of this process. A combo such as Library of Leng + Tectonic Reformation + Surly Badgersaur + Drannith Stinger + any land would form a self sustaining loop to kill opponents, for example.

Additionally, some Cycling cards have triggered effects when they cycle, and Library of Leng can allow a pilot to loop those effects. Gilded Lotus + Library of Leng + Vizier of Tumbling Sands would produce infinite mana, for example. Add in something like a Lightning Rift and this could become lethal. Bone Miser + Library of Leng + Barren Moor is another infinite mana combo, though it only produces black mana. Add in a Gempalm Polluter, however, and this set up would also become lethal.

Wuzibo on [[Primer]] - Daretti - Degenerate Artifacts

2 months ago

Hey I've ran daretti since he was released. He was my first commander. I gotta say Springjack Pasture can be awesome. Daretti, because he's artifact focused, doesn't need a lot of colored mana, so you are really free with your mana base and can run all sorts of utility lands. This deck looks good. I like springjack as a mana sink to dump mana into kind of like a shitty mana battery. Then i got little goats i can sac with ashnods, or with springjack, or just chump blockers for Daret. It also combos with Trading Post. Goatland. It's great. It also lets you build up a board without building up a board, which can be really helpful in situations where you don't want to play your hand because it will draw hate or be very threatening, or there is hate on the board that prevents you from playing your hand, and it's ramp in a way too.

you can also cut the fetch's, throw in stranglehold, then in the fetch's slots put in Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, or Phyrexia's Core, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, and some more mountains. Basics are strong, it's harder to deal with them. If you're going a stax route, Hammerheim is good too.

And i know this is a little convoluted, but, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient can combo with Voltaic Key for infinite mana the same way as Rings of Brighthearth with Gilded Lotus if you want to run it, or, Mycosynth Lattice or some other way to let you spend mana of any color. I don't have those effects, so i'm using lotus, kurkesh, and key. Even if you aren't going infinite with it, it lets you make an absurd amount of colorless mana

deadmans_head on Are these Goblin Welder oder …

2 months ago

Gidgetimer thanks, what a duh moment, of course the Goblin Welder is tapped then

so you would need an artifact that produces at least 3 mana, one that i have f.e. Gilded Lotus and Lithoform Engine for this to work

tap Gilded Lotus -> 3 floating, sac with Goblin Welder and get back Thousand-Year Elixir, pay 1 to untap Goblin Welder and copy that ability for 2 with Lithoform Engine, let the frist untap trigger resolve, with the second on the stack, tap Goblin Welder to get back Gilded Lotus and let the second untap trigger resolve and repeat

but that is a very convoluted 4 card combo that doesn't do anything without a 5th card, something that produces 4+ mana would give infinite mana, its a shame having two routes with two different creatures would have been great

NV_1980 on Vela The Darkness Comes For You

3 months ago


I would have to second the suggestions of ajphisher, nagonjin and elgosu1337 when it comes to the availability of mana. In all honesty I would cut maybe 6 of your beaters for this. Also, you don't need the swords all that much; most of the creatures in your deck are inherently hard to block already and Vela makes it even harder. I would also get rid of Doubling Cube; in my view it doesn't work very well in color combinations that have low inherent mana availability anyway. So that's a potential 14 cards you could allocate to more mana and maybe some more draw too.

I would recommend adding Arcane Signet, Gilded Lotus, Mana Vault and Thran Dynamo. In order to filter through your deck quicker, I would also add Sensei's Divining Top. For additional draw, I would really consider Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study. I think Mana Drain also fits your strategy. The remainder of the space you've got left I would fill with more draw, counterspell and cheap removal opportunities. Some ideas would be Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Counterspell, Feed the Swarm, Pongify and Rapid Hybridization.

Good luck.
