Hello there from your local Librarian (he/him)!

I've been playing magic since a friend of mine introduced me to it in my freshman year of college (Return to Ravnica). I stick to Modern and (mostly) EDH these days, standard's too expensive to keep up with.

My favorite color is Black and my favorite guild is Rakdos, and my favorite clan is Sultai for EDH.

My top deck on this site so far has been We're All Mad Here (budget cEDH).

Uba Mask is the big brain card for this deck. Not only does it allow you to milk triggers from Vega, but it also acts as mill protection.

Urza, Lord High Artificer can act as a mana sink to play from exile.

Oracle's Vault can be a handy cast from exile tool too.

Isochron Scepter/Elite Arcanist can act as a huge engine for this deck. Obviously you can run the combo with Dramatic Reversal, but you can also get value from imprinting other nonbos too.

If you want you can also check out my own list, which is in a more artifact direction, here Vega Finds the Center of the Tootsie-Pop.

If you don't mind, let me know how you fare out there. Also if you ever run into a Massacar on Arena, that's probably me!

GenericToaster Not going to lie, I had forgotten that TBD had come out in 2020 at this point... it feels like longer ago.

Last few suggestions for now, but you should include some of the draw lands in your colorless lands. They can really help you out in a pinch/late game when you have the mana to sink into them if you haven't hit a mystic forge etc.

Arch of Orazca, Bonders' Enclave (With all your +1 stuff easy to use)

Also maybe add in Blast Zone for some extra mass removal options (remember it can be a double edged sword)

ProgHouseDJ if you want some sideboard planeswalkers I would definitely recommend either Karn, the Great Creator (he works better main board to fetch from the side) and/or Karn, Scion of Urza (HUGE ASS ARTIFACTS from that -2).

As for removal, that's one of colorless's biggest weakness. If you think you've got your ramp solidly under control you could splash in some Meteor Golem.

Nintendo is a business, that ultimately cares about profits, and LoZ is an extremely popular flagship franchise for them. They definitely care about it, and as RiotRunner789 already pointed out, they are hardly neglecting the series with regular releases and remasters.

So maybe the mass marketing around Pokemon hits demographics in such a way as it is seen to be more profitable to focus on Pokemon for the anniversary.

Sorry, I see you already have the forge.

Also yes, I wish the plating and more were in historic. I used to run an affinity modern deck back in the day.

January 25, 2021 8:18 p.m.

ProgHouseDJ Mystic Forge is your friend, along with Aetherflux Reservoir.

I also run 2 copies of Lithoform Engine in my deck. It's handy, both in getting extra permanents and milking some extra triggers.

January 25, 2021 8:17 p.m.

ProgHouseDJ Not sure which artifact creature you're referring too that do that (there's quite a few and I never remember what's legal in historic), maybe Shambling Suit?

Either way, if you're a big fan of white then I would drop Emry to simplify your mana base. You want as many colorless mana producers to maximize the value of your Forsaken Monument anyway. Also if you're streamlining like that I would say you could also afford to run fewer Solemn Simulacrum too. Don't get me wrong it's a nice little value generating card, but in a largely colorless deck fetching a basic land can have limited utility (especially if you end up doing what I suggested earlier about running more colorless lands), it's 4CMC is kind of obnoxious for what it does.

January 25, 2021 3:40 p.m.

Honestly I think you need some more accelerators to help you get out the monument etc faster.

I would at least consider running a few Mind Stone for the ramp and if need be the draw.

Personally, I would keep it totally colorless or just go to blue over having Azorius colors, but that's just my preference. My colorless deck I'm currently running in diamond has no colors.

If you want to keep her in the Bant deck I would just add some proliferate sources, especially since they fit with your commander for the deck anyway, and your real reason for including her here is her ULT anyway.

So think like Karn's Bastion, Evolution Sage, and/or Flux Channeler (you run enough noncreature spells this may be viable)

There are other options, these are just easily reusable outlets to consider.

If this seems like too much work, then yeah, I would just cut her out and fill in something that seems a better fit overall.

January 24, 2021 11:56 a.m.

EleshNornsFs I totally thought you were team Urabrask. Who knew?

Personally if I am going to back a Praetor, while I know Elesh Norn is positioned far better to take control, I am on team Sheoldred. She is out there somewhere, and I think she's going to do something spicy.

January 23, 2021 8:03 p.m.

DeinoReborn honestly I doubt it, (aside from Urabrask) most of their personalities seemed too dominant to cooperate effectively.

My big hope is that out of all the internal faction bickering somehow Yawgmoth will be reincarnated through the glistening oil (since his consciousness became a part of the oil when he bound himself to the original Phyrexia) and become a big bad again.

January 23, 2021 1:27 p.m.

DeinoReborn as evidenced by Phyrexian Metamorph, they already like to employ shapeshifters amongst their ranks.

And I feel like Phyrexian long term invasion planning works well with a Dimir based scheming alignment as well.

king-saproling ok I like that card a lot, so thank you. Definitely going to have to find space for that mask (I just finished cutting cards lol).

I like the mask over Shared Fate largely due to the reduction in CMC and the removal of color requirements.

January 20, 2021 1:29 p.m.

I think this set is going to be awesome and it only makes me more sad because I currently have no spare money to buy a box...

king-saproling thanks for the suggestions.

I might include spellseeker and/or tribute mage/enlightened tutor just to help clean up assembling the dramatic scepter combo. I added inventors fair since I can't believe I forgot to include it to begin with. I am also considering Mind's Dilation for some late game value.

I briefly toyed with adding Knowledge pool but decided against it earlier.
