Lotus Bloom Discussion
1 week ago
zAzen7977 Thank you for the comments! I'm actually saving up for Chrome Mox , Jeweled Lotus , Lion's Eye Diamond , Mox Amber , Mox Opal , Mox Tantalite , Mox Diamond , Lotus Bloom and Lotus Petal . I'm also going to pick up Culling the Weak and Cruel Tutor when I order the other cards. I'll probably cut a handful of basics for the fast mana.

TheWanderinGPlaneswalker Thanks for such a detailed description, really appreciate you taking the time to explain everything so thoroughly. Now that I have a better idea of how Illusionist's Bracers , Mox Tantalite , and Lotus Bloom work with Osgir, the Reconstructor , I'll definitely be making some changes to my list in the near future. For now though, this is what I have... Full Metal Alchemy
I also forgot to mention in my original comment that all of reds impulsive card draw/ looting spells synergize really well with Osgir, the Reconstructor . Gamble / Thrill of Possibility / Cathartic Reunion / Faithless Looting / Tormenting Voice / Daretti, Scrap Savant Are just a few that work well to fill the graveyard with artifacts that want to be doubled up later, while at the same time drawing further into the deck.
Thanks again, Cheers!

unstable_anomaly All that glitters isn't a bad idea at all. It effectively does what osgir's pump ability already does but without the need to sacrifice the board. Combine that with a basic voltron piece and that's easily 7 dmg a turn. So how the copy effects like Illusionist's Bracers work is similar to if you copy an X spell. So if you cast Doublecast on a spell with x in it then the amount that you payed for x will be copied. SO if x=8 then the copy will have x=8. How I understand it is that osgir's ability is a cost. So for example I activated osgir's ability and pay zero mana and exile lotus petal. I believe what happens is that the lotus petal is exiled as cost as it doesn't say target artifact but exile it as a cost. Anyways, costs are paid first. Then the ability that will go on the stack is the creating 2 copies of the exiled artifact. Just like an x spell being copies would create another copy of that same spell with the same mana spent on x, copying osgir's ability copies what is currently trying to resolve, namely that being the creation of 2 lotus petals. So if copied there would then be 2 instances of osgir's ability on the stack creating a total of 4 lotus petals (after the initial illusionist's bracers ability resolves on the stack).
So the Mox Tantalite and Lotus Bloom are really cool. So say I suspended Mox Tantalite on turn 1 and by the time I have osgir in play he is not summoning sick as well. So then what I can do to ramp is tap the mox to produce a mana. Then I use that mana to osgir's first ability to sacrifice the mox as a cost and then give target creature (even opponents) +2/0 until end of turn. After this (or during it being on the stack because sacrificing the artifact was a cost) I can activate osgir's 2nd ability to pay 0 mana to exile the mox from my graveyard. When this resolves I'll now have 2 Mox Tantalite . For Lotus Bloom it's a similar process just a different result. Lotus bloom is on the field and I sac it for that sweet black lotus mana. Then I use osgir's ability to pay zero and exile it from the graveyard. Then when this resolves I am rewarded with two more copies of Black Lotus that I can sacrifice at my pleasure!
Also no problem with the questions. And no the tokens wont have suspend counters put on them. Mox and bloom work similar with suspend in that if you want to play them from your hand the only way to do that is suspend them instead of casting, wait 3 turns, then cast them at the upkeep. However, there are cards like As Foretold and Electrodominance that allow you to play cards with cmc 0 from your hand. With cards like that you CAN cast them from your hand without suspending. However wheen creating copies of a card even with something like Mechanized Production the copies are just created without being able to suspend them even if you wanted to. There is actually a modern deck based off of this concept called as foretold. Also this concept works the same for Living End . Another modern deck where the goal is to cycle big creatures for 1 mana, get to 3 mana, then cast either Violent Outburst or Demonic Dread to cascade into living end (as the only card 2cmc or less in the deck), then cast that living end without needing to suspend as the cascade mechanic allows you to cast the card. Of course that then leads to a board wipe and all of those big creatures coming back and then you try to attack for the win.
Thx for the comment! Mind sharing your list? I think my list is definitely unrefined so I'm happy for any suggestions on things to cut/add to make it a deck that can hold it's own and being able to provide great value in an interactive game of magic.

Hey there, really like the list. Going the voltron route wasn't really something I considered when putting together my own Osgir, the Reconstructor list but I like the idea. Although it's not an artifact, a card you might consider for that strategy is All That Glitters
I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the interaction between Osgir, the Reconstructor + Illusionist's Bracers . Does this double up on the effect that doubles the tokens giving you four total, or does it just allow you to exile two artifacts?
I also took a look at the reddit page, but couldn't quite figure out how the interaction with Osgir, the Reconstructor and Mox Tantalite / Lotus Bloom works. Does exiling these cards from the graveyard in order to make token copies of them get around having to put the suspend counters on them, or will the token copies still come into play with the suspend counters?
Sorry for so many questions, just naturally curious and super excited for this new commander!

Bruh this. is. magical. I am gonna build this. Something more interesting than my Tron.
My only question tho, will using cards like Desperate Ritual or Rite of Flame actually hinder this deck? I suppose T2 Assault would be good nonetheless, and then a potential T3 Swans? Or perhaps even Lotus Bloom ? I only ask for any methods of deploying the combo a turn or two earlier, you would know better than I.

EDIT: I"ve been considering Lotus Bloom because it generates 3 extra mana by itself. It has some downsides, but I'll run some tests to see if it's worth it.

Senko-San-1: Unless I'm mistake, there's only seven cards which CAN give you mana in your starting hand (Mox Opal, Mana Crypt, Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox, Mox Tantalite, Simian Spirit Guide, and Lotus Bloom) -- as in, a hand only CAN be keepable if it has one of these six, and even then you'd need a bunch of other rocks too. Not to mention the fact that two of those six only give you mana on turn 3.
I'm just not convinced that this deck works how you say, I'm sorry. I drew another twenty hands, and only one was borderline keepable.
