Profet93 on Hold your colour

4 weeks ago

Colorless draw is difficult. Endless Atlas but I don't think it would help. I think it just comes with the territory. Other draw would be very costly and expensive CMC wise. Tower of Fortunes, maybe a Trading Post?

I usually prefer artifact ramp over dork ramp because they are slightly harder to remove. I wouldn't add helm of awakening, I believe Cloud Key or Semblance Anvil would be a better fit should you need it.

Side Note: Swap out like 7+ wastes for nonbasics to add utility in the mana base.

Eldrazis....

Desolation Twin - 2x 10/10's, eh it's something

Emrakul, the World Anew - Interesting. I actually want to add this to one of my creatureless decks, I'm unsure of how it would work here. All the more reason to focus on artifact > creature ramp should this be added. Definitely worth trying out.

It That Heralds the End - Anthem + Ramp, definitely worth a spot

Matter Reshaper - Card draw/value

Pathrazer of Ulamog/Ulamog's Crusher - Eh, annihilator is always nice

Thought-Knot Seer - Can target 2 different opponents for each section. Worth considering

I can give you ideas of cuts should you need. Hope this all helps!

I notice you already have Top + Forge + Cost reducer = draw your whole deck.

You also have Basalt + Forsaken = Infinite mana

Basalt + rings = infinite mana + top = infinite draw/cast your whole deck

Everflowing Chalice (4 counters) + Voltaic Key + rings = infinite mana

metalworker (2 artifacts in hand) + voltaic key + rings = infinite mana

Loreseeker's Stone - Seems weak draw. Given all your ramp, have you considered swapping it for Kozilek, Butcher of Truth?

Emrakul, the Promised End should be considered as another wincon not to mention the synergy with Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant.

Maybe Trading Post to draw in a pinch, sac spine of ish shah and create tokens for Skullclamp?

Let me know what you think of each suggestion

Spell_Slam on Card creation challenge

Fight to Survive

Sorcery

Target creature you control gets +1/+1 until end of turn if it has first strike. The same is true for flying, deathtouch, double strike, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, menace, reach, skulk, trample, and vigilance. Then that creature fights target creature you don't control.


Make a 4-colour commander that is based off of Trading Post in some way.

DreadKhan on Rakdos Santa Deck

I like stuff like Dream Devourer in big Rakdos decks, it's a great way to get a Captive Audience out early. Rakdos Keyrune is another interesting mana rock in Rakdos, a 3/1 First Strike can do work on many boards (it can kill a Golem if necessary) while also offering you ramp. I think my final idea to speed this up a bit is to try out some Dark Rituals? There are other Red rituals, but Dark Ritual is a great rate.

Have you thought about tossing in some token generators? Even a Kher Keep might do some work, those 0/1s are about as useless a creature as you can give. There is also Trading Post, which can generate value if you aren't donating yet.

I suspect this deck could use something like Night's Whisper or even Phyrexian Arena, but now that I think about it, why not throw in Midnight Oil and/or Demonic Lore? Neither is so cruel as to be unfair, but both offer card draw, much gentler options than Demonic Pact for example!

Do you have trouble getting in with Blim, or having him get targeted? Whispersilk Cloak is clunky, but it might be useful as your deck really cares about having him out.

Just curious, but Thieves' Auction seems weirdly risky with Blim, doesn't his ability also hurt you potentially if you control a bunch of stolen stuff? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding how these cards interact.

@dacardgabo I actually used to have Eldrazi Monument in the mainboard and could generally keep it around with goats (Trading Post, Springjack Pasture) or Sheoldred, Whispering One pretty easily. I just found that I didn't really need it. It was a bit too clunky to play and keep around without a dedication to fodder creation. I ended up only keeping the Springjack Pasture from those cuz it was fairly low cost (and it helps for Gift of Doom), but the others were either too slow or put too much of a target on my head to be worth the trouble.

Tombstone Stairwell seems decent if you are really going hard on the Blood Artist (aristocrats) effects, but otherwise it looks like it would hurt you more than help you. And if that was the case, there are much better commanders for that route. You are constantly giving up mana to keep it around and giving your opponents stuff to utilize. If you're playing against a fully dedicated aristocrats deck, then you are causing yourself a lot more harm than good.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is actually on the chopping block queue right now along with a few others. I just haven't found what I want to put in for them yet.

The_Warleader on Colors Are For Suckers

Sweet deck! Here's some things I think could help:

Expedition Map can help find one of your many important utility lands

Darksteel Citadel untaps with Unwinding Clock and counts as an artifact for Nettlecyst and Inventor's Fair

I would just play Trading Post instead of Wedding Invitation

Heartseeker is a bit expensive to equip but technically is a combo with your untap theme.

No Temple of the False God?

Staff of Nin isn't played too much anymore but if you're playing colorless it's one of the best sources of card advantage you're going to get.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on A fistful of Myr [Urtet, Remnant of Memnarch]

1 year ago

Back again with some more thoughts. These are cards that I am considering in my brew which I think could be good here are:

Vanquisher's Banner and Kindred Discovery for card draw and a little bit of pump

Sun Titan and Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle are really strong reanimator effects since most Myr are 3 cmc or less (including Urtet).

Trading Post is great with a lot of little artifact creatures.

Mirror Entity is a myr and wincon all in one package

Mirrodin Besieged and Reflections of Littjara for more myr

lagotripha on Myrtron

I like this idea, but I feel like it needs some draw power and big payoffs - a couple playtests and I was sitting on lands and myr without a big 'this is how I win the game'.

I think the biggest thing would be leaning into green for Winding Way. It would let you grab myrs for the myr gameplan or grab tronlands in the top cards of your library, as well as opening up Ancient Stirrings which finds every card in your deck.

Icon of Ancestry / Brass Herald offers this kind of effect at a higher cmc but colourless.

The difference between 'big mana' tron myr rather than more 'artifacts cost less' myr is that it changes combo options - Myr Retriever loops and Heartless Summoning isn't going to do well. You need some big artifacts that stick and turn your myr into big threats - the myr tribal artifacts only do sorta okay at this, but they're a little light on synergy with each other.

If you want big winning combos, its more likely to be Kuldotha Forgemaster type cards that grab a big artifact threat - most of which would be lore appropriate.

I've had fun with Trading Post in these lists, alongside Myr Sire/Genesis Chamber to create a 'value until your opponent runs out of cards' style, but it does need the myr to be able to trade efficiently.

Trying to stick something like Vanquisher's Banner then play your entire deck, or run things like Thoughtcast, Lead the Stampede or Thought Monitor (with the artifact taplands) are all neat options but would take a lot bigger changes. A slow list built around using myr as mana dorks, artifact lands and Storage Matrix has some potential too, but all these options are getting further away from what the list currently is.

Have fun, and good luck with the playtesting.
