Morophon, the Boundless Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Can Jodah freecast a chosen …

1 day ago

If you have both Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Morophon, the Boundless out on the field together, do they interact accordingly?

For example, suppose we choose God as the tribe. Morophon reduces their costs by WUBRG.

But Jodah says we can pay WUBRG instead of their casting costs.

If we elect to pay WUBRG thanks to Jodah, but Morophon reduces by WUBRG, does this mean that they can now be cast effectively for free?

I found maybe some sort of jank. Morophon, the Boundless, Archaeomancer, Omnispell Adept, Tradewind Rider, and Intruder Alarm.

Use Jodah and morophon to free cast Archaeomancer and omnispell. use omnispell to cheat cast Curse of the Cabal or Vona's Hunger. If you have something that makes your bois into mana dorks, you can use tradewind and intruder alarm to return archaeomancer to hand and something else then then recast them for free. when you play them, you can untap your board with the intruder alert and recast your spells again.

Sadly, you cant do recasts with Fraying Omnipotence as you lose your creatures. if there was a card similar to the mirror that can allow you to recast it, that would be chill but this combo seems like it has the right idea.

Lanzo493 on Sliver Help!

I think Sliver Legion and Brood Sliver are worth running since they're just good slivers. If you want to use The First Sliver as the commander, I don't really see a need for Sliver Overlord since it doesn't do much in the 99. I would highly suggest Morophon, the Boundless since it will help you play lots of slivers in a single turn.

Polaris on 3 card combo question

Unfortunately, this combo doesn't work. Fist of Suns and Morophon, the Boundless will work together, but neither of them change the converted mana cost (or mana value, as it's now called). Fist of Suns lets you pay an alternate cost, and Morophon reduces the mana you pay, but neither changes the mana cost of the card.

Bolas's Citadel provides another alternate cost, so you can either cast it from your library for the Citadel's cost or from somewhere else for its own cost or Fist of Suns' cost. Note that the Citadel requires you to pay its alternate cost when you cast something with its ability, so you can't use Fist of Suns. A card like Future Sight that just says "you may cast" without giving you a cost to do so will work the way you hope.

I want to make sure if this combo works right. First we got Bolas's Citadel Second is Fist of Suns Third is Morophon, the Boundless With this combo would the converted mana cost of the creature be 0 or 5 or regular mana cost on the card? When playing/casting from the library.

Commander_JAR on Tiamat Food Chain

@kaigen

okay....if I were to continue and feed Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and the tokens to Food Chain I MIGHT have enough mana to either cast Tiamat or whatever dragon in my hand like Beledros Witherbloom or Morophon, the Boundless or Ramos, Dragon Engine. So ramp leading to more ramp leading to tutoring leading to searching for ways to MAYBE close the game...

It's funny considering I was considering trading away Food Chain before Tiamat came out.

lillobby6, this is quite the post! I have say first and foremost thank you for following this deck's progress over the years. I appreciate that you chose to base your own build off of my own.

" However I was curious as to your opinion on a deck that is somewhat more weighted towards rituals/ritual-esque rocks (of which you run quite few)."

Forgive me if I don't understand what you're referring to here - are you referring to rocks such as Jeweled Lotus, and rituals like Jeska's Will?

"I’ve read some of your comments regarding Morophon, the Boundless and looking at your deck I can see why it likely would not be the best inclusion."

From what I'm interpreting, you are asking how would I re-interpret this deck in such a way that would make Morophon, the Boundless a more worthwhile inclusion? Well, first off I think you're absolutely correct in going with a combo oriented deck with Sliver Queen as it's commander, and only the essential slivers included for the Basal Sliver and etc. infinite combos. By going all in on the powerful staples such as Dockside Extortionist, Smothering Tithe etc, I imagine games would end quickly and decisively with morophon acting as a massive mana filter. The inclusion of Crystalline Sliver, and to a lesser extent Diffusion Sliver and Unsettled Mariner would be paramount as your opponents would likely seek to dismantle your board once they know your usual routes.

I see where this concept is going, and is definitely resembling a more traditional cEDH deck in the sense that the deck does one thing really well, and in theory really fast. I think it could work. I know this is a bit oxymoronic but having a deck that can only win by combo just doesn't seem all that exciting to play. I'm not enough of a Johnny LOL - this is where my personal deck building biases kick in: I want to celebrate the tribe i'm playing, not stifling it by playing the most efficient method to victory. Why bother playing Slivers if you're not going to play Slivers? Following the logic, I should be playing The First Sliver + Food Chain - but screw that. I'd rather have fun.

So I’ve been watching this deck for years and have seen the countless changes that you have made to it and have used this deck partly as a basis for my own.

I’ve read some of your comments regarding Morophon, the Boundless and looking at your deck I can see why it likely would not be the best inclusion. However I was curious as to your opinion on a deck that is somewhat more weighted towards rituals/ritual-esque rocks (of which you run quite few).

My thought process is as follows: Generally mana-positive manarocks are going to be a decent inclusion if you can find the space for them and your meta allows for them. However including them likely means slimming the number of slivers that you run and moving closer to a more classic combo-shell (e.g. my deck runs about 18 creatures total, 4 of which are non-slivers whereas you have 25 slivers and tend to follow the “slivers-only” rule. In this slimmer sliver/more ritual shell, morophon, I think, could have a better place as it fixes colors and accelerates. There have been plenty of games where I have gotten to 7 mana long before I have gotten to 5 colors. In this case playing Morophon (and having it survive) would immediately allow Sliver Overlord (or any other legend) to be cast. It also allows for one other thing which is to play the entire Basal Sliver + Lavabelly Sliver + Sliver Queen combo without a single colored mana (and if we look under the assumption of Sliver Overlord searching for Morphon into the combo, the total paid cost is the very close [5+(3+7)+(3+5-5)+(3+3-2)+(3+3-1)=27, (3+5)+(3+3)+(3+3)=25] especially when considering the difference between colored mana and colorless mana. If Morphon comes out before Overlord then the cost is 19 v. 27. Of course if the total generation of mana leans more heavily towards colored mana then this would be a lot worse, but in a more ritual heavy deck (and Sol Land heavy, I’ve been also considering the possible benefit of City of Traitors though I am still uncertain whether it truly would be worthwhile) I think this is a benefit.

Of course there are other drawbacks towards having more ritual effects like running the risk of being slightly more inconsistant, not having an answer to every problem, etc, but I do think some of this is solved by cutting certain cards (like Sliver Legion which, while a fun sliver card, I don’t know if it necessarily belongs in an optimal combo deck that typical will not win through attacking, and if it does will have infinite creatures anyways).

I have been just doing the math of the potential benefits of Morophon recently while playing and there have been many turn 2 or 3s (and even a turn 1 or two) where I could have majorly benefitted from the cost reduction/color fixing it provides.
