Top 10 colorless cards at 6 cmc

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on March 3, 2021, 9:42 p.m. by griffstick

Welcome back for another top ten at 6 cmc. Last time it was blue. This time its colorless. Only one more after this and that's gold.

Last time the users voted that the best blue card at 6 cmc is Deadeye Navigator . That list is here top 10 mono blue cards @ 6 cmc

Check out these other lists too

So the rules are to post a comment of a colorless card at 6 cmc and the people will upvote it. The cards with the most upvotes will get the # spot. I will update the top 10 list daily.

Your comment/comments should look something like this...

My favorite colorless card at 6 cmc is Brass Herald .

It shouldn't look like this.

My favorite card is this card and that card and also this card but I think this card is the best.

More rules.

  • If you want to submit multiple cards, comment multiple times. Only one card per submission.
  • Upvote whatever cards you agree to be in the top ten.
  • Dont be afraid to upvote multiple cards.
  • You may make comments on other suggested cards and you may talk about the top cards list. But keep your card suggestions separate.
  • X spells are excluded.
  • You may tag friends to join the conversation/debate.
  • Only colorless cards at 6 cmc will be considered for the top 10.
  • unless its the legendary cmdr of the colorless deck. Cards like Transguild Courier and Sphinx of the Guildpact are not aloud in a colorless edh deck, so these cards and cards like it will not be considered for the list.
  • Cards like Drowner of Hope will not be considered for the list.
  • You may talk about other cards outside of colorless and outside of 6 cmc but they will not be considered for the top 10.
  • Cards that have multiple colors on it or in it, will not be excepted. Including hybrid mana. Unless its cards like Ramos, Dragon Engine . Because they can be your cmdr. And they are indeed colorless. My rules
  • Cards banned in edh will not be considered for the top 10.
  • If the submitted card has the same amount of upvotes as another card. I will make a judgment call on witch one I feel deserves the higher spot in the top 10.
  • S stands for super. For the 1 card that I chose to represent the best card that's banned in edh.
  • If theres a draw. For instance. If a card has 5 upvotes, and another card has 5 upvotes, and one of them I have upvoted, and the other I have not upvoted. The card I have not upvoted counts as 5½ or 5.5 for those using the metric system.

I apologize if that is not an acceptable one. But the OP did not say that I had to follow commander color identity for card choices. I understand I am in a commander thread, just sayin'.

Man oh man... it’s hard for me to choose between Armageddon Clock and Voodoo Doll . I’ll have to come down on the side of Armageddon Clock because it’s probably more useful for more decks. But both are so great!

@FormOverFunction, both those cards only have one good thing in common. The card names are sweet. Otherwise they are horrible cards. Lol

griffstick - Please do not spam folks' threads... particularly since your joke completely fails to land. You did not even choose a card with a CMC of 6.

Honorary mention: Skyclave Relic . It's , yes, but like Cyclonic Rift we all know you're paying for it.

I'm personally a big fan of Steel Hellkite . Solid removal in EDH. Sure you run into it dying to removal or being countered or whatever, but honestly the threat of removal is real for all permanents. I don't play a game with the mindset of fear; I play the game to have fun. And besides, not every single opponent runs plenty of removal, and not every single opponent immediately has said removal at their disposal.

Argentum Armor is super based, if you can get it out. Works wonders in ramp decks.

Caged Sun is great for ramp, especially in mono-white.

Contagion Engine , but it requires a lot of setup to get true value out of.

Duplicant is great, again, for removal. Fits in any deck, exiles any creature and can potentially be massive if you exile something such as The Ur-Dragon .

Eternity Vessel is super based in mono-white. Run the full gambit of fetch lands and crack them when you're life total is too low. Use in response to it's inevitable removal for some last-second value.

God-Pharaoh's Statue will shut down combo and tempo players in their tracks.

Gonti's Aether Heart can land you infinite turns if you set it up right. You need to Ensoul it, then you want to clone it. You can use Spork Double (misspelled on purpose lol), Sakashima of a Thousand Faces , Mirror Gallery , Sakashima the Impostor or some other spells to do so. Once you're online, do something such as Followed Footsteps , Progenitor Mimic , Rite of Replication . If you're using Progenitor Mimic , you're already in green. So use token-doubling effects such as Doubling Season . You can even bypass all of this for Mechanized Production and Mirror Gallery . Regardless, once you're online you'll be able to exile one and take an extra turn, make another at the beginning of your upkeep and kick off another one. Boom, infinite extra turns. But again, lots of setup.

But I think, of everything, my pick is Mindslaver .

Hold up the mana and use it as the nuclear option. Nobody wants to mess with the man (or woman) who has their finger on the detonator.

By the way... Mindslaver + Daretti, Scrap Savant . It's brutal and gross. Red has 21 cards that return artifacts from graveyards.[return]+[artifact]+[from]+[graveyard]&color=+![W]+![U]+![B]+![G]

It's fun and disgusting and just the worst.

March 5, 2021 12:11 a.m.

Was excited when I saw that another one of these was up, but it seems most of the best options have already been given. Sucks that I came a little too late. Still might have a couple for ya though

Steel Hellkite is one of the most valuable.

March 5, 2021 2:38 p.m.

hejtmane says... #47

Steel Hellkite use to be my #1 but it falls to #2 on my list to immortal sun but I still think they are both easily in the top colorless cards for 6 cmc

From the result on edh rec it looks like eldrazi tribal is really big. Because Dreamstone Hedron made it to the middle of the list. I'm surprised that Mycosynth Lattice and Mindslaver were not in the edhrec top 10 list either.

Once again thanks everyone for your contribution and continued support throughout this series. Join me again after strixhaven gets fully spoiled and after we get an episode of Game Knights for strixhaven. When I come back we will finish out the series with gold cards. Saving the best for last also the largest selection of cards I believe.
