Vedalken Orrery


You may play nonland cards as though they had flash.

Vedalken Orrery Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Commander 2019 early hopes and ...

7 hours ago

I really would like to see reprints of Chromatic Lantern , Vedalken Orrery , Reflecting Pool , and Akroma's Memorial , to keep their prices low.

Also, an entirely colorless deck would be very awesome, since that has never been done, before, and I also would like to see a non-tribal five-colored deck.

I shall predict that WoTC shall not repeat any of the color combinations from the previous set, so I very much would like to see a red/white/blue deck and a red/white/green deck.

Also, I definitely hope to see more cards for famous characters from the story who have not yet had cards (in this case, Ashnod and Gix).

That all sounds good!

Yeah it’s good you are weary on putting in high cmc cards, but id still think having 7-9 of those wouldn't be too many, as long as you have good ramp. I’d say you should get your hands on an Emergence Zone stat. Because it gives nonland stuff flash for a turn and that may enable you to be more sneaky flashing in Axis, Sands of Repay in kind. It’s a budget alternative to Vedalken Orrery .

Affordable ways to ramp: Crypt Ghast , Bubbling Muck , Magus of the Coffers . Except Crypt and Coffers are over your $2/card budget.

You're running about the right number of lands for a standard deck. I'd reccomend upping the count to at least 35, maybe more. Bojuka Bog is a personal favorite, and Morphic Pool would probably help too.

I think you're missing out by not having Dreadhorde Invasion . Ghoulcaller Gisa and Josu Vess, Lich Knight can help you with generating tokens, and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Lim-Dul the Necromancer can help with reanimation.

Lich's Caress is meant for limited, not commander. I'd replace with Hero's Downfall . More versatile, cheaper, and instant speed. Paradox Engine is a bit pricey if you don't have ways to abuse it. so I'll give the maybe controversial advice to cut it. The average CMC of your deck is less than it would cost to flash a single card in with Quicksilver Amulet . If you're using it for cost reduction, I'd cut it. If you're using it for flash, Vedalken Orrery

Brynx: You make a good point about Sylvan Awakening ! It turns Omnath into a wincon on ETB, plus we can swing in with our horde of lands! Thanks for the suggestions!

KayneMarco: Is the +1 button working? Your voted didn't seem to stick. Regardless, thanks for the +1! Glad you like the build!!!

dingusdingo: The reason I am not running counterspells here is because I don't see myself leaving much mana up for Instant speed effects. I would have to change the whole list quite a bit in order to do that. Although adding cards like Leyline of Anticipation , Vedalken Orrery , Alchemist's Refuge , Seedborn Muse and Emergence Zone is not out of the question, that is not what this deck is trying to do right now. The more I think about it, it might be cool to make this deck a Flash ETB Temur deck! I would likely have to add those four cards as well as 3-4 counterspells. Which counters would you run if you were me? This would change the deck quite a bit, so I have to be sure if I really want to do this... (R.I.P. Prophet of Kruphix )

Right now this is what changes I am looking to make. Please let me know what you think!



I will also be adding Cavalier of Thorns and Cavalier of Storms once added to Tappedout.

i can see Vedalken Orrery leading to a lot of shenanigans with this.

Forgot to mention that since you have lots of ways to draw cards and about 4/5 of your deck can't be normally cast at instant speed that that's another reason to have Vedalken Orrery

This may be a bit redundant, but I would take out either Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and instead put in Vedalken Orrery since this can allow you to respond to things with artifacts on other people's turns.

The new Kaalia is very nice; she costs 1 less mana, has vigilance, and has higher power and toughness over her previous incarnation, but, in exchange, her ability is not quite as powerful, but it still shall be very nice in EDH decks with her previous incarnation as the general.

Golos is also very nice, and I do appreciate seeing a creature that allows for five-colored decks in EDH that are not tribal, but I hope that WotC does not overdo those creatures, so that they shall still feel special and unique.

I usually do not play standard, but I am very happy to see protection back in that format; clearly, WotC has realized that that mechanic is not too powerful if used sparingly. Also, it is nice that Disenchant is now finally legal in modern; considering that WotC has not reprinted Holy Day in many sets, instead favoring Fog , it is only fair that white receive something in return.

Field of the dead is too strict to be very powerful; perhaps, if it required only five or six lands with different names, then it would be better.

Leyline of combustion is very nice, but the fact that its ability triggers only once per source of damage, rather than for each permanent that is targeted, severely limits its usefulness (compared to Flameblade Angel , whose ability triggers for each permanent that is targeted). Also, the reprint of Leyline of Anticipation is nice, but it does have me hoping that WotC shall reprint Vedalken Orrery , again, since that card is too expensive at this moment.
