Null Rod Discussion

SideBae on Breya, Artifact Shaper Synergies

marn3us: I suggest removing Ancient Den , Vault of Whispers , Great Furnace and Seat of the Synod . My experience with the artifact lands has not been good, as (at least in my meta) Stony Silence , Null Rod , Back to Basics and Blood Moon are all over the place. However, even if this is not the case, artifact lands still die to any Shatter effect, meaning that they are especially vulnerable with little upside. In a deck like this, I don't think hitting a critical mass of artifacts will be an issue, so I think the three on-color slow fetches would be good instead. I also advise running at least one off-color slow fetch, probably Grasslands because you have more white than red, because it will still fetch your Hallowed Fountain and Godless Shrine , making it effectively a dual land. If you don't want to run off-color fetches, I advise adding another shock of a color combination you don't have yet, like Sacred Foundry or Blood Crypt .

I highly suggest Mox Opal if you have access to it. In artifacts matter decks like this, it's a powerful source of early ramp.

I'm not sure how good Seat of the Synod is. It is an artifact, but it also straight dies to Null Rod , Back to Basics , Stony Silence and Blood Moon . I don't know how big your meta is on non-basic hate, but in mine Seat might as well be a Darksteel Relic . I think a basic would be better.

I never had much luck with the Pili-Pala combo. Does it work for you? I would just as soon run more tutors like Reshape or Transmute Artifact . You might also consider Power Artifact on Basalt Monolith or Grim Monolith ... that'll depend on how much money you want to spend though.

If you're looking for control elements, consider Counterbalance . With Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack , it is a powerful card.

I agree with DonQuijote: Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is a good win condition. Once you've gotten rid of your library and have infinite mana, he wins.

SynergyBuild on Urza Paradox Scepter

Yeah, I am very confused as to the use of some of these cards. Mind explaining some of the following:

I think Urza, when using a storm varient of him, running all possible non-creature, artifact based infinite mana combos ( Rings of Brighthearth , Basalt Monolith , Grim Monolith , Power Artifact , Paradox Engine , Isochron Scepter , Dramatic Reversal , Strionic Resonator , etc.) with additionally many mass-artifact bounce cards for enabling massive mana and plenty of cheerios, I thought this list would just run all of the fast mana and win with it.

This list seems much more controling, less artifact based, and more instant/sorcery based. I understand not wanting to lose to Null Rod / Stony Silence , and I'd run a large counterspell suite too, but this just seems strange.

Though artifact heavy, could still function through a Null Rod

Turns off the swan scepter combo but using Urza effect to generate atleast x 5 plus a paradox engine to reset the mana you can win through a lab man line as long as you continue to cast spells (land pockets will slightly interrupt this but drawing cards shouldnt be an issue to filter through them)

I think it gets around winter orb? Because the artifact isn't given an ability tapping it is part of the cost of a creature's ability so unless for whatever reason someone is playing a Mycosynth Lattice then Null Rod shouldn't be a problem.

This is super dependent on your playgroup, but do note that Urza can work through Null Rod so you could run it to terrorize other artifact decks.

Howling Mine , and Winter Orb can be manipulated with him as well.

Edit: oh you have orb already.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Never give up (funny story ...

1 week ago

Heh, I love me so good ol' comeback stories. So I just recently had a 4 player EDH game playing my half finished Bosh, Iron Golem deck. The hate bear player dropped a Null Rod on turn 2. While the other 3 players were fighting it out I quietly just kept adding lands, Bosh himself (for blocking), and other "unusable" artifacts to the table. Once the Null Rod /hate bear player died and all of my mana rocks went online, my deck exploded. I finished out the game relatively quickly after that.

OT: Kind of a tangent but when you mentioned Null Rod as being anti-elves, did you really mean Cursed Totem ? Or is there a lot of artifacts that help untap creatures that I'm missing? (I've never really gotten into elfball.)
