legendofa on What's the difference between lithomancy …

Pre-completion Nahiri, the Lithomancer is described as having special power over stone and metal, often using that to create stone and metal blades.

Koth of the Hammer is a geomancer, manipulating stone and heat as it relates to lava. Thanks to being born on Mirrodin, he's able to use this to purify and heat metal.

It seems like the difference between their respective abilities is mostly semantic. Both of them are shown using rocks, metal, and heat as weapons and armor. About the only differences I see are that Nahiri has manipulated worked stone, while Koth has only used raw stone, and that Koth goes bigger scale with landslides and eruptions while Nahiri mostly focuses on smaller-scale shaping and crafting. This appears to be mostly preference, though, with Nahiri's Lithoforming, Nahiri, Storm of Stone, Smelt, and Darksteel Plate.

some cute auras/equipments to cheat in w/ danitha:Celestial Mantle,, Kaldra Compleat (living weapons can become their own creatures even when Danitha cheats them in btw), Holy Avenger.

Nahiri, the Lithomancer and Stoneforge Mystic are expensive but both cheat equipments into play :)

Brion Stoutarm deck:

The Stoutarm

Commander / EDH jjmac112


So this is the deck as it was pre changes. First of all, I think you'll notice that I swapped 17 cards, not 15 lol. Secondly, you'll see that Osgir, the Reconstructor has taken Brion's job. After all the changes the deck has been through I found myself rarely casting Brion and the few time I've played with Osgir have been valuable experiences ;)

Cards out: Brion Stoutarm, Felidar Sovereign, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Serra Avatar, Iroas, God of Victory, Descend upon the Sinful, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Magma Phoenix, Prison Term, Figure of Destiny, Student of Warfare, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Land Tax, Dawn of Hope, Lone Rider  Flip, Needle Spires

So with Brion out so too are the cards that combo with him the most like Serra Avatar and Magma Phoenix. With everything else I just needed to make space for stuff that I can squeeze a little (or a lot) more value out of. The one thing I am thinking should find its way back is Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. It's a powerful finisher and I'm now short on things that can take my board state and put an end to the game.

Cards in: Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Zirda, the Dawnwaker, Venerable Warsinger, Feldon of the Third Path, Battle Angels of Tyr, Dockside Extortionist, Deep Gnome Terramancer, Archivist of Oghma, Akiri, Line-Slinger, Wheel of Fortune, Faithless Looting, Teferi's Protection, Anointed Procession, Smuggler's Share, Expedition Map, Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Citadel

Also, I just realize I should add Rustvale Bridge and Treasure Vault

liquid_water that planeswalker is pretty cool. I’ve never seen that card before. However I did want to point out (in case you weren’t aware) that you actually can’t use a Planeswalker as a commander unless it says so in the rules text. Example:Nahiri, the Lithomancer and Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools are both legal commanders, but Jace, the Mindsculptor and Teferi, Who Slows the Sunset wouldn’t be.

I get what you're saying about some people preferring variance, and The Ur-Dragon is definitely more of a Timmy commander that way. I'm a Mel, so I'm not much of a fan of variance, though counter-intuitively I also hate linear gameplay. I think what's fun about Scion for me is the toolbox approach. I have a lot of ways to adapt to a changing board state, and figuring out the puzzle of the right moves to make is where the delight comes from. But that totally makes sense why some people would just like playing battle cruisers for cheaper! I also think Varina would be fun to build. If I ever decide I'm done with my esper Aminatou planeswalker deck I can trade-in the cards and get all the zombies I want!


I'm glad you like white! I made a mono-white soldier/token deck early on helmed by Nahiri, the Lithomancer (from the precon), and included every version of Elspeth. It could slay sometimes, but the issues with white around card draw back then made me take it apart to build Teysa, Orzhov Scion instead. I had thought about Brimaaz as a better commander back then, and Adeline is better, so maybe one day I'll build it!

There's definitely a lot of cool options here!

sassybill1540 :) Thanks for the feed back on my deck. The only cards I can see that I thought were kind of questionable (Just due to my own playstyle) were the planeswalkers Elspeth, Sun's Champion & Nahiri, the Lithomancer Have they worked well for you? I thought about some planeswalkers but the only one I thought about was Ugin just to make the colorless spells cheaper. The tokens they create are just used for blockers? If that's all they are used for you could add in Ashnod's Altar or Martyr's Cause for additional value for them when they aren't needed as blockers. :)

When I get a bit more time this afternoon I'll respond to your comment on my deck.

Asimiir on Archangel Avacyn the Purifier PRIMER

I gave a lot of thoughts on the Red Elemental Blast thing and here is what I came up with. Too often I face the same problem which is : not enough mana. So in almost all those situations, I barely have enough mana to cast Red Elemental Blast. In that situation, I don't really have the choice and I need to keep Red Elemental Blast over Fork and Reverberate even if the could provide more flexibility.

As for Nahiri, the Lithomancer, I play tested her a lot while I was getting some better pieces and she did the job while she was in. I took her out when I added Fiery Emancipation because while she helped a lot with the equipments, she was not really a Wincon. And, at this point, I prefer to pay 6 mana for a wincon than 5 mana for a nice helper.

Thanks a lot for the feedback tho! Really appreciated!

With all the equipment you could get decent play with Nahiri, the Lithomancer. I've gotten good results from her in my Boros deck, though it is focused more on Sunforger as a search mechanic. Unless you're using Red Elemental Blast for it's destroy function, cards like Fork or Reverberate could do a similar thing and give more flexibility.
