Mana Geode Discussion

Nice deck! Obelisk of Bant sure adds to the flavor, but what about Commander's Sphere? Sometimes mass destruction of artifacts happens, with this you can draw a card! Other choices could also be Darksteel Ingot or Mana Geode..!

  1. Your rock suite could use work. I've never found 3-mana rocks (i.e. Chromatic Lantern, Mana Geode, the cluestones) to be very good at all: a two mana rock on turn two means you can land your general turn three (assuming you make a land drop), but three mana rocks rarely speed you up by a whole turn. Consider running some of the following instead: Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Dominance, Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet, Sky Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel... In general, I've found categorically replacing 3-mana rocks for 2-mana rocks is a good way to improve a deck.

  2. I'm not a fan of the anthems route, since it means Skullclamp isn't a viable card-draw engine. That said, if you want to go after the anthems, I suggest Favorable Winds in addition to your other effects.

  3. Mystic Remora is good -- I think it's better than Rhystic Study, but you may want to run both.

  4. I don't know how many creatures you usually have out, but if you have 4+ pretty consistently you may want to run Slate of Ancestry. It's a highly underrated card in token-based decks. Also Distant Melody and Windfall. And Thirst for Knowledge/Thirst for Meaning.

  5. Ponder and Preordain belong in any blue deck. One-drop cantrips that provide card selection don't look like much, and a lot of people write them off as not effective enough, but there's a reason these are both banned in modern and overplayed in legacy. I do think you should run Brainstorm, but if you do you should run at least two more fetches to make sure you don't get locked under the cards you put back.

  6. Winds of Abandon is a card I have never liked at all -- ramping your opponents is often straight-up dangerous in EDH. Consider something like Swords to Plowshares or Harsh Mercy instead.

  7. One combo I think is pretty cool is Counterbalance + Sensei's Divining Top. Both these cards trigger your general, and you can flip top to recast it if you need to squeeze out extra triggers. Paired, they produce a pretty tough counter-wall for your opponents to fight through, which notably does not cost you cards.

  8. Oblivion Ring? I think it's better than Path to Exile, for the same reason I don't think Winds of Abandon is very good.

  9. Cyclonic Rift strikes me as a lot more powerful than River's Rebuke. Being an instant that hits all your opponents is a big deal.

  10. Mentor of the Meek seems like another really good source of card-advantage for you. Like Skullclamp, if you have enough pump out it won't work.

Right. That's all I got.

Good luck

You might want to reduce the number of strategies, I believe you should generally be able to sort all cards of a good deck into 10-15 custom categories. Also Manalith should problably go and be replacede with either Prismatic Lens or Mana Geode under the same budget.

Even if this is a budget deck, Sinister Sabotage, Dissolve, and Dissipate are all cheap alternatives to Cancel. Even Manalith is strictly better than Obelisk of Grixis, and Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic come with upside. If those cost too much, Mana Geode is still better. Please make these upgrades. They will make the deck better. Love the description! Why does TappedOut think this is a standard deck?

hey, nice budget deck! you can also replace your Manalith if you'd like with either Commander's Sphere or the cheaper Mana Geode with a free scry! :-)

Okay, now the Mana Geode makes sense. I'd simply do an even mix of half Plains & half Islands because more color is better and it might worry your opponent that you might be running some sort of W/U control deck.

Artifacts are NOT really my thing, I've had a few all Artifact decks. But my suggestions would be simply what I know works.

Make it 4x Steel Overseer s If using Plains I'd have 4x Disenchant s, especially if they have anyway of taking your creatures i.e Agent of Treachery even worse if they are also using Portal of Sanctuary with it.

Shadowspear is fun. especially with Gingerbrute .

Altar of the Pantheon Also can work like Mana Geode . - Also its a Common.

Stonecoil Serpent especially for mid game.

Maybe one or two Dance of the Manse .

Thank you for commenting!

  1. I am using Plains so I can cast Arcanist's Owl

  2. I am a bit out of my comfort zone here. I am used to desgining EDH decks, and am just trying to get into Standard. I will see what I can do about the lands.

  3. I am running Mana Geode s to provide card selection, mana earlier in the game, and to turn into a 3/3 later with Karn.

  4. What artifacts and creatures do you recommend?

Again, thank you for the comment, Minousmancer
