Mana Reflection

Mana Reflection


If you tap a permanent for mana, it produces twice as much of that mana instead.

OK this is a pretty cool concept, but very costly if it flops. I guess in your play-testing, how quickly did you get to the Tree popping? Maybe something like Mana Reflection could help, I dunno.

Some of those Gods seem pretty bad... I wonder if subbing them out for mana dorks would leave you be better off. I guess you need certain colors to meet devotion requirements, but Mogis, God of Slaughter seems like he should definitely be in there. Big body, indestructible, affordable (both mana and $$$), great trigger. I think the Phenax + Purphoros (plus random Gods) will be your most often win condition, just dump a bunch of Gods and mill someone down. If you have Prophet out, its almost a guaranteed win.

Mirridon's Core seems like a cheap substitute for a better land... Heck you could almost just replace it with Evolving Wilds , but w/e you think works better.

As for weaknesses, Land Destruct obviously is a problem for a deck like this. And then you'd have to watch out for Rick's Exile All Creatures BS, but I think those are both just random match-up issues.

With all that said, I'd have to think about what you could use for early game protection. Maybe some of those 0/4 walls (there a white and a green one) that lets you draw a card on etb. It serves as a blocker, survives a lighting bolt, provides card draw, and gives a mill 4 with Phenax out. There's always the Deadly Recluse , it stops a lot of early game stuff, and you're very light on removal in this deck... Other than the 3 counter-spells, you got nothing until your Gods show up to block things. Or what might work for you are Fertilid - 3 mana, 2/2 creature that you can fetch lands with (or help your partner if they are land hosed).

The mana dork + cultivate is a good combo, but you only have 1 cultivate, so is probably not worth it, and you don't wanna be Rick for 4 turns. Plus with that you'd want to run more green than what you have.

Lastly, That Hullbreacher is hella expensive $$$ wise, is it really worth what it does?

Mcat1999 on Is Anyone Else Feeling Disappointed …

Of the currently 316 cards on Gatherer that mention Lifelink, 196 of them contain . Following this, 21 cards contain . 129 contain , a mere 16 contain and lastly 28 contain . Oh yes, and 19 contain as in artifacts and such.

This is derived from quickly searching the database for only the keyword Lifelink, then taking the total value and subtracting the amount remaining after removing as an option, for example. What this means is that is in second place for the ability with third place going to .

When considering mechanics, it is often a good idea to note what the primary color is and what the secondary colors are. Usually there is one primary and two secondary with the last two (or three, if including ) either being negligible or unfavorable in design.

Comparing Galazeth Prismari to Urza, Lord High Artificer , who has often been regarded as a cEDH Commander is also very unfair and misleading. It would be akin to saying Sol Ring is shit because it isn't as good as Mana Crypt . A more apt comparison would be to Saheeli, the Gifted .

As for Beledros Witherbloom , she's actually extremely powerful if you know how to build around her. Firstly, you are in the two best colors for ramp. Black has a long history of being able to draw mana out of other sources such as sacrificing or paying life and green is the single best ramp color in the game, in terms of how affluent it is. If you build her properly, you can obtain vast amounts of lands onto the battlefield extremely quickly. Cards such as Tempt with Discovery , Hour of Promise , Collective Voyage and Reshape the Earth are absolutely phenomenal with her. Furthermore you can add extra bang to your buck ala Rings of Brighthearth , Illusionist's Bracers and Lithoform Engine . On top of these, you have Doubling Cube , Mana Reflection , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Dictate of Karametra and Nissa, Who Shakes the World .

If you want further abuse, because who doesn't like a big Dominatrix Draggo in their life, you have a very healthy plethora of Nissa Planeswalkers who untap your lands. They are Nissa of Shadowed Boughs , Nissa, Genesis Mage , Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Worldwaker . And if these aren't enough, slap down Liliana of the Dark Realms and tutor out Swamps until you get that sexy emblem.

If you're going this route, why not pack in The Chain Veil ? You're already going Superfriends and you're already abusing the copying of activated abilities, so copy Planeswalker activations while you're at it, and copy TCV's too.

What does this all get you? It gets you a Witherbloom that produces hundreds of mana, easily. Because remember, you can copy her ability. You may only be able to activate it once, but in reality you only need to activate it once.

Witherbloom isn't bad or terrible. She's specific.

Oh, and by the way, Omnath, Locus of Mana has the rules on Gatherer that you are able to retain this mana even during other player's turns. So what this means is you can untap all lands on your opponent's turn and float the into your next turn. So, there's that as well. Especially with Unwinding Clock , you are also now untapping your Doubling Cube and Lithoform Engine . While Lithoform Engine can not copy Doubling Cube , it certainly can copy everything else.

Again, Witherbloom is absolutely a God --- if you build her properly.

ClassicCox on Nature's Shroud (Multani Maro-Sorcerer EDH)

Beebles these are a lot of suggestions, so i'll try to give you an idea of what i think about them.

Miren, the Moaning Well and Temple of the False God i don't like in general, and i try as few nonbasics as possible because of Nissa and Vernal bloom caring about Forests. Castle Garenbrig on the other hand i like a lot, being a turn 5 Multani by itself, i wonder why it isn't already in the deck honestly. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is pretty expensive and i don't own a copy. Would be a nice fit if i got one, even if it requires already having a board to make positive mana. Very nice combo with Mana Reflection too.

The Great Henge doesn't ramp you to Multani so i wouldn't put it in the deck. Inscription of Abundance has two modes that target a creature, a nonbo with Multani, so it's pretty bad.

Pathbreaker and Myojin are a bit slow. Myojin can empty your hand but if you have nine mana leftover after resolving a big draw spell you're usually doing pretty fine anyways. I don't like Crossroads being symmetrical. Crashing Drawbridge is good and i'm looking for a spot for it.

Overall nice suggestions, thanks :)

abby315 on Riku! Reku! Rikoo!

Here are my picks for weakest cards, without much justification except that for the most part I don't see them doing anything important with Riku, too expensive for what they do, or are too specific:

Spore Frog
Animist's Awakening
Desperate Ritual
Reshape the Earth
Sakura-Tribe Scout
Savage Ventmaw
Seething Song
Sunbird's Invocation
Pull from the Deep Volcanic Vision
Wild Ricochet
Hazoret's Undying Fury
Surrak Dragonclaw
Swarm Intelligence
Dual Casting
Volcanic Torrent
Decimate (since you need all legal targets, it can be awk to cascade into this one)
Amulet of Vigor
Trinket Mage
Murkfiend Liege
Wort, the Raidmother
Mana Reflection
Genesis Ultimatum
Cast Through Time

And I'm also recommending cutting all of your X spells that can be hit and missed with Cascade: Electrodominance
Genesis Wave

However, I'll echo what another commenter said in that cascade doesn't interact with Riku all that much. I mean, you can copy the permanents or spells cast off of Cascade, but you can't meaningfully copy the Cascade cards. You could choose to cut the Cascade package instead. It's up to you and what you want to play.

So that's my first evil pass at 30 cuts. :)

treetall26 on Nissa's Huge Tracts of Land

somewhatclever Thanks for the suggestions! Unfortunately my playgroup won't let me add Mana Reflection , Nyxbloom Ancient because they don't want me to ramp at 2-3x the speed. Bunch of haters if you ask me.

somewhatclever on Nissa's Huge Tracts of Land

Nissa of Shadowed Boughs is a really good planeswalker in land strategies. Exploration or Burgeoning are also good includes. If you want to focus on lands and goodstuff, Yarok, the Desecrated and Ancient Greenwarden double your landfall triggers. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle interacts nicely with Prismatic Omen and/or Dryad of the Ilysian Grove . Mana Reflection or Nyxbloom Ancient could give you a lot of mana to use on Golos, Tireless Pilgrim or maybe Helix Pinnacle .
