Seat of the Synod

Artifact Land

OUT: Tree of Tales, Seat of the Synod, Great Furnace, Forest, Island, Mountain

IN: 2x Snow-Covered Forest, 2x Snow-Covered Island, 2x Snow-Covered Mountain

I saw the artifact lands on EDHRec and was looking for more land. Didn't realize Loot, the Key to Everything doesn't count types among your lands.

So I got "Rec'ed" and took them out to get a few snow basics in, hopefully to help enable Field of the Dead easier.

Circle of Dreams Druid doesn't represent a specific character, place, or event, but rather a specific subclass of druid. In 5th Edition D&D, the thirteen main classes each have a number of specializations called subclasses. Each character chooses a subclass for their main class, usually at second or third level, that gives them more exclusive abilities, but you only make this choice once per class--once you choose your subclass, that's it. The Circle of Dreams is a druid subclass that emphasizes protection, safety, and travel (so the flavor's a little off, but a lot of the AFR cards concede flavor for gameplay).

I think Mox Quartz is too strong and reliable, since its mana cost is strictly generic mana. CoD Druid uses heavy color costs to restrict its utility. As it stands, this card is a supercharged blue Sol Ring. A cost of or even might be better, since there are a lot more utility artifacts than creatures at mana value 0-1.

T1 Seat of the Synod, T2 Darksteel Citadel, T3 Treasure Vault, Mox Quartz, and you're mana-positive with no further investment or opportunity cost, and I'm deliberately leaving out other colors and mana rocks--Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, signets and talismans and so on. This would be a major threat in Commander and devastating in everything else.

Apologies for the very delayed response, Andramalech. I tried out Gyruda, Doom of Depths for quite some time but on many occasions I'd either flip Demons with odd CMC's or nothing at all preventing any additional combo'ing with Be'Lakor, the Dark Master. Solid suggestion, and like I said I gave him the old college try, I just found Gyruda didn't quite make the cut. I really dig your list and it looks like it crushes! One suggestion I have is to add in the UBR artifact lands Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers, and Great Furnace (maybe even throw in Darksteel Citadel, too) to increase your artifact count for Mox Opal - the worst thing is not having enough artifacts for Metalcraft and not being able to utilize such a great mana rock. I would add Urza's Incubator as well since Demons aren't a cost-friendly tribe. Have you considered the Grixis Talismans as well? These could be solid additions to up your ramp package (which is already great), though the hard part is always figuring what to take out to free up space. Thanks for your feedback and, once more, sorry for taking so long to get back to you.

Hi grumbledore, I've noticed that quite a few of the following cards are uncategorized, and figured they could fit into some of the following categories you have on site:

This is not an exhaustive list, but some of the ones I noticed from looking at my own deck categories.

Some thoughts:

  • A bunch of your cards aren't modern-legal. They're all the one's highlighted in red, so Archangel of Strife, Exalted Angel, Noble Templar, Wizards of Thay, Decanter of Endless Water, Robe of the Archmagi, Sol Ring, Ascend from Avernus, Fountain of Cho, Seat of the Synod, Promise of Tomorrow, and Reverent Mantra.

  • You're playing a lot more cards than the 60 required. Any amount of cards over 60 reduces a decks consistency and generally makes it weaker - I'd suggest heavily on trying to cut back to 60 cards.

  • You're currently playing waaay too many cards as 1-ofs or 2-ofs. This is going to make your deck super inconsistent and clumsy to pilot. You should be aiming for the majority of your deck to be playsets (4-ofs) of cards. A good strategy for new deckbuilders is to pick 9 cards, and run playsets (4-ofs) of each of those (making 36 cards) alongside 24 lands (for a 60 card deck).

  • Your mana curve is waay too high. Most modern decks can't justify running more than 4 cards (1 playset) costing 4 mana, and seldom run anything costing more than this much mana. You've got a whopping 23 cards costing 4-or-more mana, which is far too much. Going from the above suggestion of picking 9 cards, the mana costs of those cards should look something like 1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,4.

multimedia on Rise of the Constructs (Budget)

1 year ago

Hey, for those who are interested, I just made the first Phyrexia ONE upgrades which of course one of them is Encroaching Mycosynth, no explanation needed. Another one is Skrelv, Defector Mite, for more repeatable protection and ways to get more damage in with Urza or a Construct. Skrelv adds a new avenue to winning, poison. It will take a lot of time in game, but poison could now be wincon. The One Commander decks have been revealed and the full ONE set will be revealed this week, then I can get a better idea if any other budget cards are worth adding. I'm keeping my eye on the prices of at least three cards that have potential.

Other big changes have happen, but as a result the deck price has gone up, not much though. Skullclamp has been added because it's very good here with Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry, doing everything I want in gameplay: creating flying artifact creatures, repeatable draw, sac outlet for artifacts. The Mages have been added: Tribute Mage and Trinket Mage. They add more budget tutors for artifacts. When I control Encroaching Mycosynth they can be repeatable with Master Transmuter and Anrakyr the Traveller, etc. Tutored for by Sphinx Summoner which then gives me more access to assembling the Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry + Time Sieve wincon combo.

Some big cuts have happened, The Flesh is Weak and Vedalken Humiliator are gone. This combo was neat, but Weak not being an artifact is not where I want to be. Encroaching Mycosynth replaces Weak and without Weak I don't like Humiliator. I don't like that Humiliator can't trigger it's ability unless it attacks, consistently he does nothing the turn he ETB, that's not helpful if I'm only playing it for attacking. Encroaching Mycosynth does improves this combo, but I still cut it.

The Flesh is Weak + Vedalken Humiliator combo helped Constructs to attack therefore if cutting it I really should add something else to help combat. Vault of the Archangel is deceptively powerful with Constructs, just having it untapped with enough mana to activate it makes my Constructs essentially unblockable because opponents are not going to risk losing all their blockers to deathtouch + menace. To make it easier to get Vault I added Expedition Map. Another one drop artifact that can be repeatable a number of ways here. If Map isn't getting Vault then it can get an Artifact land Seat of the Synod which is quite good with Master Transmuter or get a sac outlet Phyrexia's Core for Wishclaw Talisman, etc.

So, right now, Commander included, you've got 126 cards. Seeing as you're only 26 over the cap, this shouldn't be too bad.

This is a low mana cost deck with a lot of draw, you probably only need 34-36 lands if you're being generous. If I were you, I'd drop some of the slower lands, such as Temple of Enlightenment, Skybridge Towers, Prairie Stream, Azorius Chancery, Castle Ardenvale, Castle Vantress, or even Port Town.

You might also want to include more fetch lands, too. Flooded Strand, Fabled Passage, and Flood Plain all come with a pretty high price tag, but they're all good.

On the other side of the coin, Brokers Hideout, Obscura Storefront, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, Esper Panorama, and Bant Panorama are all cheaper fetch lands that you could use.

Drawing mana late game can be a dead draw a lot of the time, so being able to remove that excess from your deck can be a really nice tool to have, so you can draw just what you want. Maybe take out cards that are fast, but not necessary such as, Skycloud Expanse, Sea of Clouds, Mishra's Factory, and Crawling Barrens.

Changing it to this (or a list of just 35 mana), should bring us down to 122 cards.

As for non-land ramp, you have a lot. I’m going to say you want to kick out Silver Myr, Gold Myr, Mind Stone, and Ornithopter of Paradise. Normally I’d say more, but for this specific deck that seems to love ramp, this seems more than fine.

118 left.

For the rest, I’d say Ondu Inversion  Flip, Access Denied, Tezzeret the Seeker, Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Phyrexian Metamorph, Cultivator's Caravan, Invoke Justice, and An Offer You Can't Refuse, all mostly because they’re too expensive.

That leaves you with 109

Okay, so, this decklist is surprisingly tight for being 30~ cards over and I don’t know where to kick the last 9 off. Maybe Artificer Class? Maybe some of the creatures/vehicles? Idunno, good luck.

My first thought after reading the title wasn't fetchlands. I was thinking Seat of the Synod and friends and affinity...
