The two songs you mentioned, I feel might actually be better suited for WOTC's Warhammer 40k expansion.

But perhaps that's my own personal bias speaking ;)

TypicalTimmy, that does make sense, and I think that that is a very well-thought out post, so what about angels? Angels in MtG seem to uniformly resemble human females, but do you think that their forms should vary, based upon their plane of origin?

I have replaced Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo with Decanter of Endless Water and Mind Stone, which reduced this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.58 to 3.52, which is very good, because, as awesome as the previous artifacts were, they were simply too expensive, so I am now confident that this deck shall operate much faster and more smoothly.

I have replaced Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo with Commander's Sphere and Decanter of Endless Water, which inexplicably increased this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.66 to 3.67, but I am certain that I still have lowered its mana curve, overall.

I have replaced Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo with Decanter of Endless Water and Unstable Obelisk, but, for some reason, the average converted mana cost of this deck remained the same, at 3.18, which it most certainly should not have done, but I am confident that have I still lowered this deck's mana curve, nevertheless.

December 4, 2022 2:06 p.m.

I do appreciate everyone suggesting that I use land-based mana acceleration in this deck, and I do, in fact, have Sakura-Tribe Elder in it, as it fits the theme of the deck, but I specifically mentioned those two artifacts, because they have secondary abilities beyond producing mana, and, between those two, I have decided to use Unstable Obelisk, since this deck already has a sufficient number of cards that allow me to draw more cards.

Gleeock, yes, I think that female demons, or any creature that resembles a human female, can be attractive without being seductive, but seducing mortals is a demon's entire modus operandi (or am I redirecting us back to the beginning of our conversation by saying that?).

Thus far, one user has voted in favor of keeping the Temple Bell in my deck, and two have voted in favor of putting Loran in the deck, so I shall wait for several more days, to see if anyone else provides any feedback, before I make a decision.

December 4, 2022 1:56 p.m.

Gleeock, at this point, I really do not think that there is anything further that can be said, since each of us does not seem to be willing to concede to the other, and, as for my original question, if WotC does not wish to have female demons in this game, then that is their decision, and I shall not worry myself about it.

I am considering putting Loran of the Third Path in my Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis EDH deck for her destruction ability, and I most likely would remove Temple Bell to make room for her, since Kwain, Itinerant Meddler and Selvala, Explorer Returned have secondary abilities beyond card drawing, but Loran does not cause all players to draw cards, which means that I would need to use her more strategically, and I could also risk making enemies if I do not user her ability carefully.

What does everyone else say? Should I put Loran of the Third Path in my Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis deck, or is she not worth the trouble that she could cause?

December 3, 2022 9:30 a.m.

Gleeock, it seems to me that you and I shall not be able to agree on this subject, but the reason for which I do not see sexism and racism in fantasy is because I am not looking for it; I consider myself to be sufficiently open-minded and egalitarian that I view fiction as exactly that: fiction.

I have heard some people say that the dwarves from Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarves are a negative portrayal of Jewish people, but I think that would take a stretch of imagination, especially since they are unquestionably heroic, whereas most depictions of Jewish people at that time would have been decidedly more negative. I also do not see how dwarves in the works of Tolkien can be anti-semitic, so please explain to me how they are.

PickleNutz, I am not willing to spend that much money on MtG cards, so those cards are outside of my budget, unfortunately.

December 1, 2022 10:02 p.m.

I am now replacing Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus in the majority of my EDH decks, because of how expensive those decks are, and my Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck is next for being updated. I shall definitely be putting Decanter of Endless Water in the deck to replace one of those artifacts, but I am not certain about the other.

I am now choosing between Letter of Acceptance and Unstable Obelisk, since each of those artifacts has a secondary ability, beyond producing mana, and I would like to have the feedback of the other users on this forum; what does everyone else say about this? Which of those two cards should I put in my Meren deck?

I have replaced Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo with Commander's Sphere and Talisman of Hierarchy, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.05 to 3.98, which is very good. I was reluctant to make that change, since I am very fond of both of those artifacts because of how powerful they are, but I realize that lowering the mana curve of this deck is more important than being able to generate great amounts of mana.

I could have put Orzhov Signet in this deck, but I chose the talisman, instead, because this deck has more than sufficient life gain to offset the damage from the talisman, and neither the talisman nor the sphere require mana to be paid into their abilities, as does the signet.

Caerwyn, I have Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus in every one of my EDH decks, apart from my Atraxa deck (which instead contains Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia), and you actually have inspired me to re-evaluate my decision to include those cards in those decks, since, as awesome as they are, they are very expensive and I agree that it would be better to reduce the mana curve of my decks.

Caerwyn, I would rather use Commander's Sphere over any of the Ravnican signets, because it does not require mana to fuel its ability, and I can sacrifice it when to draw a card when I no longer require the mana.

AstroAA, I need to ensure that I have swamps to synergize with Castle Locthwain and plains to synergize with Emeria, The Sky Ruin, so how many of each of those lands do you recommend?

FartSeize, I simply think that green and white should differ in how they gain life, simply because each color differs from the others in how they draw cards or otherwise gain card advantage.

I very much wish to put Talisman of Hierarchy in my Liesa, Shroud of Dusk EDH deck, because I feel that that deck has a sufficient focus on gaining life to balance out the damage from that artifact, but I need to decide what card to remove to make room for it.

My most likely choice is Thran Dynamo, because, as awesome as that card is, it is expensive, and nearly every other mana-generating artifact in that deck has a secondary function; Gilded Lotus is more expensive than is the dynamo, but it generates colored mana.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I put Talisman of Hierarchy into my Liesa deck, and if I do, what card should I remove to make room for it?
