MLS91 on Crippling Fear

Profet93

I'm thinking of just cutting the Glacial Chasm for a Swamp , i hasn't saved me in the one set of three games, and I don't really think that i'll truly be needing it in the future. it was there for assuming the role of archenemy, can be not paid sac'd then replayed with Crucible of Worlds creating a small lock of sorts.

My friend was the one that suggested Oblivion Sower , I like the idea of ripping lands with it, as well as it's awkward 5/8 body. I do think its a little though and reaching into the casual realm which isn't really what im looking to do.

Bitter Ordeal can technically combo with the Lotus Petal loop and exile everyones Libraries(also less color intensive), but again, i'm looking at dream land. but it sounds really nice!

After some deliberation here's what I've come to:

Minus Dreamstealer plus Opposition Agent

Why: better value, answers answers

Minus Glacial Chasm plus Swamp

Why: need access to more colored mana, land count ins fine. Chasm doesn't currently do anything and doesn't tap for mana

Minus Metalworker plus Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire

Why: Metalworker is a good card, the idea pf it still works for the deck, but it requires to much set up, Varragoth i'm hoping "gets us there" also makes the deck "possibly"

Back at it with a small tweak

- Agadeem's Awakening  Flip for + Dance of the Dead

why: I feel confident with the amount of ramp and lands that i'm playing, Awakening is a little expensive regardless of the versitility. Dance lowers my curve, grants a small buff and haste. (also I still don't have access to Necromancy so the patience continues

cards i've been considering lately, perhaps better to "sideboard" the cut for them, I would like to discuss the viabilty of these cards I have in mind for tuning.

1. Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire

Why:

Varragoth has a good body at 2/3, Deathtouch and the ability to tutor (yes i'm also considering the opposing Opposition Agent ). I'm sure we all agree that "tutoring"is good. I feel like this deck, despite not having yet played it, needs access to it's gameplay quickly.

Political? It can accomplish that. It can be in play as soon as T1 ( Dark Ritual effects, Rocks) which only helps the then shaped draw into T3. I didn't at first realize this says "1(B): "...TARGET PLAYER..." ", however now I do. I think the card has potential, only cut I currently see is Metalworker ...feels bad, maybe Tinybones, Trinket Thief ???

  1. Sadistic Sacrament

Why:

RIP combo players

Omniscience_is_life, Profet93

- Trading Post for + Junk Diver

Why: Scrap Trawler loop enabled with Myr Retriever and Junk Diver , also lowers curve overall and better overall synergy, potential win with Zulaport Cutthroat or Syr Konrad, the Grim , good looks Omniscience_is_life

- Go for the Throat for + Liliana's Triumph

Why: Profet93 you are correct, much better value

- Cabal Stronghold for + Vesuva

Why: Thespian's Stage would end up tapped at the cost of 2mana compared to Vesuva just coming in tapped for the same ability. Minuscule advantage but it's there

- Swamp for + Prismatic Vista

Why: you right Profet93

- Mind Slash for + Imp's Mischief

Why: mindslash isn't as efficient as id like to think it is, puts opponents creatures back in their graveyard (theoretically) and that works against Living Death

- Hedron Archive for + Sensei's Divining Top

Why: Profet93, you clearly point out the why, there is no contention with your logic and rational

- Dreamstone Hedron for + Lotus Petal

Why: Cuts curve, synergy with the trawler line, can easily produce more mana then any other rock in the deck. (potentially infinite???)

Profet93 Metalworker is just a really good way to ramp, acts as a rock for explosiveness. there are 21 total artifacts in the deck, so just above 20% of the deck feeds him, which is also why I included Vault of Whispers unless you think Darksteel Citadel would serve better in this slot

Heya - obviously you are still keeping this up, very cool. I like the direction you are going and my experience with the deck is that you were right all along to be evolving toward more stax elements.

Adding Ward of Bones and God-Pharaoh's Statue would be right along with your existing direction.

Also Static Orb, Sphere of Resistance, Winter Orb maybe even Thorn of Amethyst would help. Yes, they cause you some issues, but your deck is mana on top of mana on top of mana - you can deal with it. Other decks not so much. Add in Unwinding Clock, Clock of Omens, Blinkmoth Urn, Metalworker and it all becomes very one-sided.

My version - (check here on Tapped out: The OG Kozilek says No) has been a beast, and I’ve turned the page into a Primer. Would love to hear your experiences and trade notes.

hey Kashedbowl

Man do I love my eldrazi! The players in my group not so much.

So we know that the Eldrazi are big, beefy and love to stomp, they need tons of ramp especially going pure colourless, but they also need a bit of help to reduce the cost to get them out. Jhoira's Familiar is cheap and drops the price down.

Metalworker is going to be a must for you imho, if you are going to be running that many artifacts, chances are you are going to have a few in your hand and this little gem will help bring out those fatties fast! I've dropped Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger turn 4 in my voltron deck with Metalworker.

Sandstone Oracle can help out with card draw

Tutors really are a bane for colourless, even more so for Eldrazi. Planar Portal, Mind's Eye and Citanul Flute can help with that. Planar Portal can help you pick up your Urza's lands, if you are going to run with Tron.

Running with Scorched Ruins and throwing away 2 Wastes is a pretty sweet ramp, dump 2 lands, get 4 mana.

Hope this helps in any way.

Thanks a lot :) And yes, I realize it must be very confusing reading an outdated primer, sorry about that! Im going to make a few updates after im done writing this comment.

Metalworker and Power Artifact served as alternate options for making infinite mana. The current version of the decklist is more fine-tuned towards cosistently winning through either Mesmeric Orb and Basalt Monolith or some Mirran Spy / Chakram Retriever loop (example: Mirran Spy + Urza's Bauble drawing your library at the beginning of next turn, then, in response to their draw trigger, following up with Shimmer Myr, looping Lotus Petal, and casting Brain Freeze for the win). I have simply found these lines to be the most effective in terms of speed, consistency and versatility. Because of this, slower win cons has been replaced by either protection or cards that promote consistency (card draw for example). Hope this makes sense!
