Matter Reshaper

Matter Reshaper

Creature — Eldrazi

( represents colourless mana.)

When Matter Reshaper dies, reveal the top card of your library. You may put that card onto the battlefield if it's a permanent card with converted mana cost 3 or less. Otherwise, put that card into your hand.

DawnsRayofLight on Eldrazi Tribal/Tron (Help is Appreciated)

@lalalalala: it is definitely getting there. I am going to make some suggestions:

I know this is going to be like "wow now I am running the same Tron as everyone else" but Karn has always been one of my favorite planeswalkers and he is ideal in a list like this

I might run

3x Karn, the Great Creator

2x Karn Liberated

1-2 Ugin, the Ineffable

1-2 All Is Dust

3-4x Golgari Signet or Talisman of Impulse

1x Blast Zone

1x Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth

(for the lands maybe drop a crossroad or two? test the deck and if you feel you are not getting lands consistently enough run 22 or 21, a lot of the TRON lists similar to yours run only 17)

Cards to Drop:

Eldrazi Mimic: It is nice to have a 2 drop but he isn't that strong, if you want an early drop you can run Walking Ballista or Matter Reshaper

Conduit of Ruin: You can maybe be fine with 2 but 4 isn't necessary, I am honestly not a fan but it does at least fetch your big boys, but you may have enough dig with the Ancient Stirrings to drop it altogether. Wurmcoil Engine may be a better 6 drop

Titan's Presence: you may have enough creature removal with Kozilek's Return and Warping Wail. It also gives your opponents information about what you may have in hand. You could drop them to run other cards.

Set up your sideboard like this (for use with Karn)

3x Chalice of the Void: Seriously a good card, I was onto this long before it started getting put in Tron, maybe consider a 1 of in the main to, but basically it allows you to halt a lot of annoying decks in their tracks: affinity, infect, storm, they die to this card. I sided it in one game against an affinity player: played 1 for 0 then the next turn dropped another at 1 and he scooped.

1x Ensnaring Bridge

1x Crucible of Worlds

1x Relic of Progenitus

1x Grafdigger's Cage

1x Pithing Needle

1x Torpor Orb

1x Wurmcoil Engine

1x Ratchet Bomb

1x Trinisphere

1x Blightsteel Colossus: Martyr of sands is making a comeback

2x Wilt: just to counter Blood Moon

Maybeboard for the side

1x Oblivion Stone

Hope this helps!

LeaPlathBut wouldn't Eidolon of Rhetoric and Archon of Emeria also work against me too, making me too only cast one spell per turn?

And, TriusMalarky, you said 't1 Elvish Mystic, t3 Vannifar'. Couldn't I use t2 Sylvan Caryatid instead of Elvish Mystic, or t1 Arboreal Grazer? I don't like Elvish Mystic just because it is a green mana for tapping.

I think a lot of my cards would benefit from blinking or tapping then untapping. Is there a slang term in MTG for tapping and untapping? I know that exiling and retrieving is called 'blink' and putting a card back into its owners hand is called 'bounce'.

Untapping and Tapping would be useful with Combat Celebrant and Sylvan Caryatid. and especially Prime Speaker Vannifar.

Blinking would work with Thought-Knot Seer, Arboreal Grazer. From Beyond, Eldritch Evolutionand especially Wishclaw Talisman.

This would be where Eldrazi Displacer and Matter Reshaper would shine.

I'm thinking about running more of these two types of cards that I can blink or untap and tap. If I have a combo of tapping and untapping with Combat Celebrant, I can get many combat turns before my opponent even takes a turn.

In that birthing pod deck, there really isn't any synergy either, just +P/+T counters as a main thing. Sure, each card is good on its own, and you could say that mine are as well. Prowling Serpopard is a solid 3 CMC for 4/3 and removes creature counter-spells. I could move that to the sideboard, but it's pretty good for attacking. Matter Reshaper is useful for all of those permanents worth 3 or less, and is also good for a 3/2 for 3, and can be a chump blocker as well as a damager; esesntially with Matter Reshaper I'm paying at most 3 for anything that I draw that is 3 or less, plus the Matter reshaper itself. I could also move that to the sideboard if needed. Thought-Knot Seer is a hand-control plus 4/4 creature for 4. I removed some hand control so that this creature is useful, as it doubles as a creature as well as with ETB hand control, which can be blinked. Sylvan Caryatid is essential ramp for my manabase. The only cards that aren't useful on their own are Walker of the Wastes, and Tithe Taker, but costs 2 CMC and is very useful against burn/counter/instants as well as mana-triggered abilities etc,. Walker of the Wastes could be replaced by a higher mana powerful useful Eldrazi, as when I use Sylvan Caryatid and Cryptolith Rite, they are 'of any color' and I don't think colorless is a color. Which is why I have a ton of wastes as lands. Yes, I know that my manabase sucks, but I don't want to run a ton of 1x expensive dual and shock lands, and I plan on testing out many decks when Pioneer MTG Arena arrives.

Thus it seems that Thought-Knot Seer and Sylvan Caryatid are really the only creatures I think are really valuable in this deck.

Thought-Knot Seer is one of my favorite cards.

The example of 601.2f given above is a bit of a distraction. I assume it was meant to show how cost increasing/reducing effects impact the total cost to cast a spell, but it doesn't have anything to do with CMC. As shown in the example of 202.3, CMC is strictly the sum of the symbols in the printed mana cost. Herald of the Pantheon doesn't have any interaction with the abilities of Fires of Invention or Matter Reshaper.

Note that is considered zero at all times except when the spell is currently being cast and on the stack, in which case it takes whatever value was chosen for it. For example: Blaze in your hand or in the graveyard has CMC = 1. If it's on the stack as a spell with X = 5, then it has CMC = 6.

The CMC of a card does not change if there are effects that alter how much mana is required to pay to cast the spell. Fires of Invention and Matter Reshaper care about the CMC, not the total cost of the spell. Below I have added the two sections of the comprehensive rules that I used for my response. Hope this helps!

202.3. The converted mana cost of an object is a number equal to the total amount of mana in its mana cost, regardless of color. Example: A mana cost of {3}{U}{U} translates to a converted mana cost of 5.

601.2f The player determines the total cost of the spell. Usually this is just the mana cost. Some spells have additional or alternative costs. Some effects may increase or reduce the cost to pay, or may provide other alternative costs. Costs may include paying mana, tapping permanents, sacrificing permanents, discarding cards, and so on. The total cost is the mana cost or alternative cost (as determined in rule 601.2b), plus all additional costs and cost increases, and minus all cost reductions. If multiple cost reductions apply, the player may apply them in any order. If the mana component of the total cost is reduced to nothing by cost reduction effects, it is considered to be {0}. It can’t be reduced to less than {0}. Once the total cost is determined, any effects that directly affect the total cost are applied. Then the resulting total cost becomes “locked in.” If effects would change the total cost after this time, they have no effect.

If I used Herald of the Pantheon and make my enchantments one generic mana cheaper, does that count as cheaper CMC for Fires of Invention? Or is that wrong and Fires of Invention just uses the default CMC without modifiers? Also, if I use Herald of the Pantheon, will I be able to use Matter Reshaper when it dies for a 4 CMC enchantment when it is beforehand reduced to 3 mana by Herald of the Pantheon?

I know that you're not running colorless, but with fires of invention you could use Matter Reshaper. Especially if you're using Yorion to exile it then return it, or simply letting it die and then summoning a 3 mana or less permanent. With all of your enchantments this will be useful.

Do you know of any heavy hitter cards for little mana? Adorned Pouncer? Fleecemane Lion? I only know cats, but I'm sure there are many cards out there that are big, yet cost little mana, and have useful abilities. Matter Reshaper and Thought-Knot Seer are really nice, but I don't want to run colorless.
