Mind's Eye

Artifact

Whenever an opponent draws a card, you may pay . If you do, draw a card.

I’d recommend adding these cards as soon as your other haul comes in. These are just recommendations for now.

The discussion with you is very enlightened :o)

While playtesting, i noticed Batterskull a dead card in hand more often than not. I always wanted to play another card -> cut. As well as Ghouls' Night Out. I think the rate (4 reanimations for 5 mana - 4-1 exchange) is a extremely good rate… but it fits my Zombie deck better, i guess. I like this card, cutting it hurts :D

Myr Retriever was a great suggestion, which is already in my collection. Should provide more synergy than the cuts. Open my eyes for a Workshop Assistant, not in my collection yet. As for Mirrorworks, i hope thst this can provide huge value as it can copy almost 3/4 of my deck. I already thought about adding Lithoform Engine but mirrorworks will do, i think.

The idea of Mind's Eye is to draw consistently. Of course, there are burst-draw options, but most of them rely on life… which i already abuse a lot in this deck, do i? I could use Phyrexian Arena which is rather slow and relies one life, too (and mirrorworks draws more cards potentially.

I have 10 options to return Canoptek Tomb Sentinel from GY to play. You think these are enough out to abuse/use it‘s effect and therefore exchange against Overwhelming Remorse?

Sad Robot was never a disappointing draw because if combining etb and ltb.

Hey, you're welcome.

You're right, a high avg. CMC hurting gameplay can be deceiving if you have reanimation. To help reanimation be more of a factor consider adding some cards that can search for and put card(s) of your choice from your library into your graveyard?

Unmarked Grave is two mana to tutor for and put Wurmcoil Engine or Triplicate Titan into your graveyard, Buried Alive can get both of them, that's better than potentially drawing them especially Triplicate. Or get Razorlash Transmogrant to get this guy going. A reason to play Vile Entomber is Biotransference making it a potentially repeatable effect that can get any card. Entomber can get Bolas's Citadel.

Adding Myr Retriever is a reason to keep Mirrorworks. These two cards combo with Ashnod's Altar for infinite Necrons.

  • Cast Retriever, trigger Mirrorworks to copy Retriever.
  • In response to Mirrorworks trigger sac Retriever with Altar.
  • Resolve Retriever die trigger returning any artifact to hand and trigger Imotekh.
  • Resolve Mirrorworks trigger, pay floating from Altar, creating a Retriever copy.
  • Sac Retriever copy with Altar, returning Retriever to your hand and trigger Imotekh.
  • Repeat

Myr Retriever also combos with Scrap Trawler and Ashnod's Altar for infinite Necrons even on an opponent turn with Shimmer Myr.

  • Sac Retriever with Altar, recur an artifact and trigger Imotekh.
  • Sac Trawler, recur Retriever and trigger Imotekh.
  • Sac a Necron, cast Retriever, sac Retriever, recur Trawler and trigger Imotekh.
  • Cast Trawler and repeat.

This combo you need to make it infinite, for Retriever and for Trawler to repeatedly cast them from your hand. By sacing one Necron each iteration of the combo makes an extra , making for infinite Necrons also makes infinite colorless mana. Workshop Assistant and Junk Diver are other artifact Retrievers who can replace Trawler in the combo.


You still have four cards to cut, consider these four? A direction to consider for cuts is further reduce the mana curve? Traxos, Scourge of Kroog is just a beater, all the other 4 drop artifact creatures here do something else as well as being a beater because of menace. Ghouls' Night Out, you don't need this effect with a 5 mana spell that isn't an artifact.

Batterskull is just a beater and it has a very high equip cost which you can't reduce to use it after the Gem is removed. The life gain from Batterskull could be helpful especially with Bolas's Citadel and Anrakyr the Traveller, but I wouldn't play a 5 drop to get life gain when you can gain life from other much lower mana cost sources. Resurrection Orb is another source of lifelink that also has a high equip cost, but Orb is much better for overall strategy here than Batterskull.

Sceptre of Eternal Glory and The Golden Throne are better ramp than Solemn Simulacrum. A reason to cut Solemn is having lots of four drop ramp is not where you want to be with ramp, 0-2 CMC, some 3 CMC ramp is better for gameplay. Mind's Eye is better 5 drop than Ghouls' Night Out and Batterskull, but Eye could also be cut for lower mana cost draw.

Overwhelming Remorse could be cut for Canoptek Tomb Sentinel? The cost reduction of Remorse can be good, but very situational. The potential repeatability of Canoptek since it's an artifact creature to reanimate is better and Canoptek can exile any nonland permanent which is very helpful effect to have in mono black.

Cascading Cataracts would be really useful.

Cut Teferi's Protection. Add Solitary Confinement. Would be like a second copy of Spirit of Resistance that feeds the graveyard.

Cut Sudden Spoiling. Add Humility.

Cut Supreme Verdict. Add No Mercy.

Cut Bubble Matrix. Add Inner Sanctum.

Cut Mind's Eye. Add Sylvan Library or Rhystic Study.

Cut Mob Rule. Add Stranglehold.

I'm gonna say more draw, or at least more efficient draw, which is easy in a green creature deck. Along the Beast Whisperer line of thinking, you have to include Vanquisher's Banner, as well as Zendikar Resurgent and/or The Great Henge for both the ramp and draw, and probably include Guardian Project as well, and maybe Soul of the Harvest. Next I would consider stuff like Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, or maybe Inspiring Call if you'll be distributing enough +1/+1 counters to creatures. To go other routes for draw, I would consider including Grothama, All-Devouring to attack/fight/"sac" a bunch of "excess" creatures for draw, or Skullmulcher does similar in a pure sac way, or perhaps Ohran Frostfang, Regal Force, Toski, Bearer of Secrets, Benefactor's Draught, Mind's Eye, War Room, and while Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is off the Elf theme, it's still effective for more than draw. Or go with stuff like Rishkar's Expertise, Hunter's Prowess, or Garruk, Primal Hunter if you're going the tron route with Lathril. If you don't mind spending some money, it's hard not to also mention Sylvan Library.

Anyway, tons of great draw options that are in line with your deck's theme. And if you have excess ramp, you need excess draw to keep up.

AstroAA on Should I Keep Luminarch Ascension …

This is coming a couple hours later after thinking a bit more; on the notion of swapping Commander's Sphere for Smothering Tithe - it is no secret I'm not a fan of Smothering Tithe, but with as little mana acceleration as your deck currently runs, I disagree with what the others have posted above. Not only are you getting rid of a mana source, but you are also getting rid of a source of card advantage.

On the topic of card advantage, I'll finally get to what I wanted to discuss earlier. Right now, you only run seven cards that let you draw a card on them. Below are the cards in question and my general opinion on them.

  • Kwain, Itinerant Meddler - I don't like this card simply because it gives your opponents card advantage. Okay if you're running a group hug deck, and you appear not to be. Replace with something like Brainstorm.
  • Rhystic Study - Excellent card. I advocated for this card in your last thread, and I'm glad to see you add it. The main problem with this card is it's up there on the "kill on sight" cards I spoke about in my first post. You can help protect it with cards like Heroic Intervention.
  • Cryptic Command - I am mid on this card. It was great in other formats, but I don't think it translates well to Commander. I'd also advocate for getting rid of it due to it's CMC; you're a three color deck and this has three blue pips. I.e; it's not that easy to cast. Replace it with something like Ponder.
  • Sphinx's Revelation - Again, I'm mid on this card. I don't like lifegain strategies in EDH for a myriad of reasons, but you need to pay at least four mana to draw one card. You could go for something like Harmonize, which is also four mana but lets you draw three cards instead.
  • Treva's Charm - You don't even really get card advantage from this card as you're essentially paying two cards to draw one card; a net loss of one. I would actually go with something like Eladamri's Call or Growth Spiral. Growth Spiral replaces itself by drawing you a card, while Eladamri's Call allows you to tutor for any creature in your deck, effectively replacing itself.
  • Commander's Sphere - I've heard a lot of people not like this card, but I have a soft spot for it. I like it because it can act as mana advantage in the earlier turns, and once you no longer need it you can use it to draw a card. Keep it.
  • The Immortal Sun - Six mana to draw a card every turn. Again, this is one of those "kill on sight" cards, and I especially don't like it because of it's CMC. It does do other things, such as acting as an anthem in regards to reducing your spell's CMC and giving your creatures +1/+1. It's alright. If you wanted to, you could go for something like Mind's Eye which does require more investment in the long run, but it can draw you at minimum three cards every turn cycle if you want to go that way. If not, just go for something like Sensei's Divining Top. It's one of the best artifacts ever printed.

Now that I've spoken about your current cards, I'd also try to include more tutors. These range from a wide variety, such as Enlightened Tutor, Worldly Tutor, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Mystical Tutor, Sterling Grove or even something like Land Tax. Any of these will help you speed up your game and lower your CMC. Also, while on the topic of Sterling Grove, I see you run Privileged Position. If you get both out together, no one can target any of your permanents.

I like where you're going with this. You've got some key pieces and some cool synergy that really feels like it would be fun to play!

While I was looking over your decklist I noticed that you have a lot of really good cards in here, and I feel like you could focus your card draw a little more to really step up the momentum of your deck. I've got a few swaps I think would help the momentum of your deck:

I think the chances of you drawing a creature card with Adventure Awaits is kind of low to be called consistent. I think it would be much more likely that you would have a lot of creatures in play
I think Bitter Revelations has a pretty steap CMC for how many cards it gives you, I think Shamanic Revelations could give you way more cards for just one more mana
Professor Onyx is a great card, and she is a little out of place in this deck other than just filling some great control at a huge CMC. I think Freyalise would still give you some control, give you some tokens, ramp, and card draw all in one 5 mana drop
Hard call but the consistent low cost of Mind's Eye makes it powerful swap if you're willing to pay the 5 cost upfront. Usually people are playing EDH in 4 person games and that means it's pretty much a draw 1 for 1 on a stick.

These are all just ideas and the deck is already pretty fun without them!

Keep up the good work, -H-E-N-R-Y

ClockworkSwordfish on How Good is Book of …

6 months ago

Book of Rass isn't bad per se, and it's a very solid option for Old School EDH, but I think it's outclassed by a number of even mediocre cards. For example, you'd have to and 4 life for the book to outperform The Immortal Sun or even Staff of Nin on a given turn, and neither of those costs are a pittance. And what about next turn? The Book's one real advantage is being able to draw multiple cards per turn, but I feel it's just too mana-intensive to meaningfully outperform other big artifacts like Mind's Eye or Loreseeker's Stone.
