Woehrlebird, I delete decks often, so you should copy it if you are interested.

Ramp the is good with Lumra: Lotus Field Harrow Roiling Regrowth Springbloom Druid

Support for Lumra: Panharmonicon Amulet of Vigor

To help shuffle your graveyard back into your deck after you milled too much: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

The rest is optimized good stuff: landfall and cheating cards in with Apex Devastator, Ghalta, Stampede Tyrant and Last March of the Ents.

Also, Monogreen mass haste: Surrak and Goreclaw Concordant Crossroads

Heartbeat of Spring at only 3 mana can set up some nasty tempo turns.

Skullclamp and Lightning Greaves are probably still worth it even if you mostly try to win the turn you play Beledros.

Sanctum of Eternity is a funny little guy with commanders that untap lands.

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is good in all decks that can cast him.

Defense of the Heart is a meta call, I guess, but it's usually reliable. Boring card though, to be honest.

I notice you already have Top + Forge + Cost reducer = draw your whole deck.

You also have Basalt + Forsaken = Infinite mana

Basalt + rings = infinite mana + top = infinite draw/cast your whole deck

Everflowing Chalice (4 counters) + Voltaic Key + rings = infinite mana

metalworker (2 artifacts in hand) + voltaic key + rings = infinite mana

Loreseeker's Stone - Seems weak draw. Given all your ramp, have you considered swapping it for Kozilek, Butcher of Truth?

Emrakul, the Promised End should be considered as another wincon not to mention the synergy with Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant.

Maybe Trading Post to draw in a pinch, sac spine of ish shah and create tokens for Skullclamp?

Let me know what you think of each suggestion

I don't recall even after searching through your EDH decks. Nevertheless, that makes me happy, I hope I can provide you with some meaningful suggestions and input.

Personally, I don't run lower than 37 lands in most of my lists, but I am super cautious about not having lands in my opening hands. Others are less inclined and are more aggressive with their openers to establish early board presence/value. In this artifact build, I suggest 34 lands lands or so. Not only will this ensure easier opening hands, but also assists you for when someone inevitably wipes the board with a vandablast, oblivion stone, etc... I would up the land count a little bit to playtest it and see if it works for you.

Why run 11 wastes without more land fetching ramp? I understand myriad landscape but without any more effects, I believe you can substitute some wastes for other non-basics that provide you additional utility, which is one of greatest strengths of colorless. Additionally, adding more nonbasics can fuel Field of the Dead. While it's not an entirely serious suggestion given the theme of the deck, it can definitely help (given that you said you wanted more bodies in your most recent update).

You beat me to it, this deck needs more draw. Given you are running Eldrazi, I'm surprised you're not running the best ones, Kozilek, the Great Distortion and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. The former is my favorite given it allows you to pretend to be blue, bluff and provides a full hand guaranteed. The latter is more aggressive and 4 cards is nothing to scoff at.

Personally, I would avoid symmetrical effects like howling mine as you have no way to break parity and you are only getting one while each opponent (usually 3) gets one, for a ratio of 1:3 which isn't optimal. Chromatic star is less draw and more cantrips. While they are nice at times, they aren't often included unless you can utilize them for a greater purpose.

Sensei's divining top + Mystic Forge + Artifact cost reducer (you have several) = Draw your entire deck. Additionally, top helps smooth out your draws. Moreover, it synergizes with Kozilek Distortion to draw 3 cards deeper.

Expedition Map - Find Urza lands, buried ruin for recursion or just smooth our early game/ensure land drops.

Warping Wail - Having a colorless counterspell and the ability to bluff is strong. It can even give you a blocker in a pinch. I like having interaction in colorless given that it's hard to interact without paying 7+ mana (usually).

Let me know what you think of each suggestion. Looking forward to your response.

RovkirHexus on So you thought you had 99 cards in your deck

Wow I really misunderstood how state-based actions work when I wrote that previous comment.

Leyline of the Void actually doesn't synergize with a lot of stuff I have in the "plan to get" section. While useful against Eldrazi titans, specifically Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, their shuffle effect can be countered with Nihil Spellbomb or Tormod's Crypt. Also idk how common any of those cards are in commander.

trippy_mcfly on Cumly Cube

1 year ago

Introducing Cumly Cube 1.2! 12 months ago, Cumly Cube was updated to Cumly Cube 1.1, offering many needed changes to the card pool. While this fixed some glaring errors, other faults in the cube remained, and a year of careful consideration has hopefully identified all of them. For Cumly Cube's 1.1's 1-year anniversary, I have chosen to make some changes. These changes serve a few functions:

One of them is to smooth the power level of cards in the pool. There should be very few slam-dunk picks or unplayable cards.

Another is to remove the snow card type from the pool. This makes it so players only have the option of including regular basic lands in their deck, increasing accessibility and ease for drafting.

A third is to balance the level of aggression in strategies. It was identified that playing strong, expensive creatures was a dominant strategy in Cumly Cube 1.1, since there was not enough support for aggressive decks to go under this strategy. While aggressive decks are still not supported heavily, a few changes in the card pool have hopefully shifted the meta to a point in which tempo will be an important dynamic in most matchups.

A fourth and final change is in the creature types. All creatures now belong to a supported creature type, and all non-creature cards that produce creature tokens produce tokens that belong to a supported creature type as well, meaning that tribal synergies are going to be emphasized in Cumly Cube 1.2, as was an original goal of this Cumly cube.

One more thing to note is an important change to the rules. Rule 907 has been removed. Players can no longer use this rule to conjure a basic land of any type into their hand, increasing a need for disciplined drafting. While this rule allowed players to play more ambitious decks, it removed the use for Banners, Lockets, and other methods of fixing mana. Ambitious decks are still possible in Cumly Cube 1.2, they just require some extra effort to draft.

Here are the individual card changes, provided with brief justifications:

Andromedus on Progress and Poverty

wallisface I agree regarding Fury, it can be a bit hairy. We do run 3x Dromoka's Commands (the fight mechanic ignores double strike) and chump-blocking a non-flyer isn't generally a challenge for this deck, so on the whole I usually prefer the ETB-less Fury. Tossing a red spell to get it out is a major downside for the opponent, and if we're trading hits then we only need to get a couple +1/+1's onto our Hushbringer before we're breaking even with it. But I do agree there's a potential risk depending on board state.

What I've found is that, whenever Hushbringer is weak, Archon of Emeria is strong. So much so that I'm thinking of replacing the one-off Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in the sideboard with a fourth Archon of Emeria (I don't really think this deck needs the Kozilek anyways).

For example, against Crashing Footfalls, Archon of Emeria completely hoses all cascade effects since they can't cast their "free" spell, which includes 4xShardless Agents and 4xViolent Outbursts, and means that when Crashing Footfalls finally casts off suspend they also can't do anything else that turn but sit on their hands. And without Fury's ETB, it's very hard for them to remove the Archon of Emeria.

It also hoses Murktide as mentioned before, I think that's pretty common knowledge.

For Underworld Breach it hoses Ledger Shredder, Underworld Breach (since escape counts as a cast, they can't use it), Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer's dash is pretty well hosed since it counts as a cast, Expressive Iteration while not totally hosed is definitely hampered, Mishra's Bauble becomes pretty much a dead draw. Only Teferi, Time Raveler really helps the deck but imo it's not enough.

Domain Zoo is one of my tougher match-ups. We do run 3xBoseiju, Who Endures to destroy the triomes, and we have a lot of vigilance which is helpful against aggro. Still I'd probably swap in our Runed Halos in that matchup, in addition to our Hopeful Initiates and Burrenton Forge-Tenders.

Anyways I appreciate the constructive criticisms. Hopefully with time I'll get the list tightened up more.

Maybe try Eldrazi cards with annihilator to force opponents to sacrifice permanents? Artisan of Kozilek, Eldrazi Conscription, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (Banned in commander), Hand of Emrakul (Requires Eldzari spawn), It That Betrays (highly recommended for this deck by me), Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Spawnsire of Ulamog(20 mana ability does not function in commander), Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, and Ulamog's Crusher are all the cards that have or give Annihilator
