Mox Amber Discussion
3 days ago
Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Nice deck, you have good card sense with a high budget.
Grand Abolisher and Conqueror's Flail are helpful to protect Wyleth on your turn to safely equip and attack. Puresteel Paladin is repeatable draw with equips as well as can be 0 cost equip. If adding Puresteel than adding a few artifact lands: Ancient Den and Great Furnace helps to activate metalcraft. Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard can get Stoneforge or another support creature.
Could replace the Diamonds with Signets: Arcane Signet and Boros Signet since they make either color and ETB untapped. Mox Opal and Mox Amber are more powerful mana rocks for more speed. Aggravated Assault combos with Sword of Feast and Famine for infinite attacks. Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Mask of Memory are good equips especially with double strike.
Spectator Seating is a Boros dual land upgrade. Bloodstained Mire and Windswept Heath are two more Fetch lands. Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver can protect Wyleth for no mana cost. Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast are helpful to counter an opponent's counterspell. Generous Gift and Chaos Warp are removal spell upgrades. Jeska's Will is a powerful ritual.
If interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice of cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

All right, some of this may seem weird, but hear me out.
One of the biggest advantages land destruction has going for it is the ability to disrupt an opponents mana before they can properly set up. With that being said, you have way too many cards that cost 3 mana and no way to play them early. What I'm going to suggest is trying to remove a few of those cards in favor of cards that will accelerate your remaining land destruction spells. What's coming to mind worth trying is 4 copies of Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer .
Here's why. This can give you an early play that can potentially set up a 3 mana spell on turn 2 (assuming played t1) for you if it can connect. Not only that, but being a legendary creature, you have the option of potentially adding Mox Amber as an additional mana source. Now, you'll probably want more legendary creatures to properly make use of the mox's which is where something like Zurgo Bellstriker could also help with being aggressive and progressing you plan.
The other main thing I'm going to suggest is adding a couple more lands (swamps probably). The reasoning being that if you do happen to land a blood moon/magus of the moon, then you may very easily lock yourself out of black mana. One thing to keep in mind is that if you don't have enough mana, then you can't stop theirs.
Here's the tl:dr of what I'm going to suggest: Add: 4 ragavan, 2 zurgo, 3 mox amber, 2 swamps. Cut: 4 brainstone (when will you have time to use this?), 3 harness the storm (I really can't see you having enough mana to make use of it), 4 fulminator mage (betting on Cursed Totem seeing play, making this unable to do the 1 job it has.)
These changes should not only speed your deck up, but allow you to put on some early pressure to your opponents life total.

Thanks for the suggestions, I’ve been testing and found that Welding Jar as well as Mox Amber are a little bad and I think Paradise Mantle is a great way to help the deck be more consistent. As for spring leaf drum, im considering getting rid of the ambers all together, as the relevant turn to have that mana is turn 2, not turn 3

Hey Mcat1999, sweet build! I’m no voltron expert, but I think you’re on to something here. Like you said, your life gain potential is enormous with lifelink and doublestrike. I think the deck is solid as-is, but if you want to make some adjustments for speed, I humbly offer these suggestions. I don’t know what your budget is like, so I’m making general recommendations regardless of price.
I know you mentioned you like drawing into things and would rather not run tutors, but if you choose to run Enlightened Tutor , Mystical Tutor , Stoneforge Mystic , Steelshaper's Gift , and/or Open the Armory , then you will significantly increase your consistency. It matters when you’re dealing with other decks running tutors that can win by turns 2-5 (like my K’rrik combo deck). And you’re already running fetchlands, which essentially have the same function - so why not run tutors?
I highly suggest running Jeweled Lotus to help cast Ishai on turn 1 - plus it can help mid-game to recast a commander if they get killed, which is likely to happen at least once per game. Other ramp artifacts which will increase your speed are Lotus Petal (one free colored mana always helps), Mox Opal (since you are already running lots of artifacts), and Mox Amber (since you have two commanders and a handful of other legendaries, it will help ramp into your other spells mid-game). Other options are Mana Vault and Grim Monolith , which only produce colorless mana but can really help cast an artifact or big spell in a pinch. I run all of the above in my commander decks, and I always find a reason to use them, even if I can’t use them immediately when drawn.

zAzen7977 Thank you for the comments! I'm actually saving up for Chrome Mox , Jeweled Lotus , Lion's Eye Diamond , Mox Amber , Mox Opal , Mox Tantalite , Mox Diamond , Lotus Bloom and Lotus Petal . I'm also going to pick up Culling the Weak and Cruel Tutor when I order the other cards. I'll probably cut a handful of basics for the fast mana.
