/u/bboomslang on Secret Lair Secretversary Superdrop + Extra Cards

That already is awesome, but also that I will get two of his swamps is! Much better than just yet another Planeswalker I will never play, like that angrath.

/u/bboomslang on What is your biggest "flex" card?

Aside from the revised Duals and Gaea’s Crade (which are usually known to players even in casual pods), it usually is my Mox Diamond. It’s just the closest we got to actual moxen in EDH and when it hits the table, it usually evokes some reactions. People just don’t see them that often, I guess. Lion’s Eye Diamond is another good one, but that I only play in cedh decks, as it is just a combo piece. Mox Diamond can go in any deck that wants the speedup.

Obelisk every day, every deck. I have two of them and they are just gorgeous.

/u/bboomslang on I loved the Playing With Power budget idea! What are your best and cheapest "cEDH" decks?

I am cheating a little in that the core cards of my Ukkima Foodchain Aluren deck are quite expensive, so instead the commander, I disregard the price of the core engines, but after that, the rest of the deck is sub 100€. Budget restrictions can be lots…

/u/bboomslang on Is Burning Inquiry worth playing by CEDH standards in Grixis specifically?

As already mentioned, this card really shines if you play Underworld Breach in your list (or Yawgmoth‘s Will to an extent), because you care less about the discards then. But still then, there are multiple better wheel effects in Grixis that are good o…

/u/bboomslang on Give me your personal cEDH "dark-horse" commanders

Teshar and Ashaya would it be for me, both are not too common and when people don’t know about the many interactions of their cards, they can sneak in for a win. Both have high redundancy in combo pieces, too, and for their combo pieces at least a dece…

/u/bboomslang on After 1.5 months, where are we with Lithoform Engine?

It is great for Golos "big splashy spells" – you either double up his tutor for lands, his activation, or any of the spells you cast with him, to double up the value.

/u/bboomslang on Lotus Bloom

Yeah, I can see the suspend cards being better in a Citadel list. But are there any current Citadel lists in cEDH? I do run one in casual, but haven’t seen it in cEDH lists lately.

/u/bboomslang on Lotus Bloom

yeah, “current turn + 3 more” isn’t what I call fast at all. For a one-shot mana burst that you have to plan three turns ahead of time – nope. In some cases you could cascade into it or stuff like that, if your decks falls that way, then it might be ok (similar as Electrodominance makes Wheel of Fate kinda fringe playable).

In what I see as the current top decks, I would say it is far too slow.

/u/bboomslang on Deckbox.com update?

well, they still only use their own pricing engine (with merged prices from Amazon, I think), so their single prices are bonkers and so you can’t really use them to value your collection or your deck. Other than that, it is quite ok, but I still prefer Moxfield, because the statistics are really limited on deckbox. And it just doesn’t look as spiffy as the competition. I still use it to track my collection, though, because it is the most complete solution for that – even obscure sets and supplemental products can be selected for printings.

/u/bboomslang on Dargo and Malcolm, Pirate Storm cEDH

Ya know, I love the options that Commander Legends opened – who would have thought a pirate storm build could be a viable cEDH deck before? I totally look forward to the silly brews coming out of this all.

Nope, only Legacy and Vintage (and Commander – yum!)

/u/bboomslang on [CMR] Ingenuity Engine

yeah, the second part is what I got wrong, thought it would return from GY. But the your first part answers the question for the misread card, too, so thx 🙂

argh. I misread it as "from your graveyard to your hand". Silly me.

/u/bboomslang on [CMR] Ingenuity Engine

So since this sac’s as part of the cost, it will see itself in the GY when the activation goes on the stack? It can return itself? If yes, that would make it a repeatable cascade for 8 mana.

Edit: misread it as returning something from the GY to your hand, not the battlefield, my bad.

/u/bboomslang on What in the heckin’ frick do I do with [[Nicol Bolas, The Ravager]]?

I run a flicker deck that uses the creature side, but wants to use the other Planeswalker for the actual Wincon. It is a bit on the expensive side, but maybe you can get some inspirations from it. Essentially you try to get infinit mana and proliferate…

/u/bboomslang on Should things like Winter/Static Orb be banned?

dude, if you leave important parts out, don’t expect valid answers! if you build omnath abominations, fight through the stax and don’t complain. Suggest your Urza playing friend to also look at Mana Web, Tanglewire and others …

/u/bboomslang on Should things like Winter/Static Orb be banned?

In that case just tell him that those two orbs in casual play groups just plain suck. Usually people get the point. I myself often have “sideboards” in my casual decks that make them a little less casual, for those situations where I need that little bit more oomph. So maybe that’s a way for him to go, leaving them out most games, but bringing them in every now and then, when he had a bad streak or faces some abomination himself.

/u/bboomslang on Should things like Winter/Static Orb be banned?

If your pal is playing Urza and Winter / Static Orb, have a sit down with them and have a serious talk, because Urza + Orbs tends to at least scratch cEDH terrain – it might just be plain too nasty for your table.

On the other hand, Omnath as a green commander has access to a lot of the very best artifact removal – even free ones, like Force of Vigor. So Omnath – even if it is the mono green one – is quite prepared to take on Urza, if it is a more casual build (but casual build and orbs don’t usually mesh that well).

So, yeah, have a sit down and talk sounds like the more correct approach, because playing a tuned Urza at a casual table is just pubstomping.

/u/bboomslang on Would sydri galvanic genius be a viable cedh commander.

I just realized that in a bears in cars List she could be a cool commander – not cEDH, but with bears in cars being more of a meme Deck anyway, I would give it more leeway there 😉 – her ability can pseudo-crew vehicles and her way to remove 0 cmc ramp…

/u/bboomslang on Who is everyone running for CEDH

Kenrith, but a more elf bally version. So infinite mana through many different overlapping combos into Kenrith into beating face with dorks on steroids.

/u/bboomslang on Hyper-expensive cards: best bang for your buck?

Ok, if you already have your duals (they would – and were – my first choice), I probably still would first go for other more expensive cards where I get more than just one card for the money. But if I would go for just one, I would go for Timetwister, …

/u/bboomslang on Mesmeric Orb + Basalt Monolith ?

Can be the base for a [[Syr Konrad, the Grim]] deck, since you can use it to mill yourself and with a titan in your deck, you do it infinite times with Syr Konrad out to kill the table. The rest of the deck can be stuff to protect yourself, hamper oppo…

/u/bboomslang on Why don’t we see more Snapcaster Mages?

In modern, snap caster is an ambush viper with a bolt attached – that takes away 1/4 of your opponents life total if it attacks successfully. Or with bolt snap bolt even over 1/3 if his attack gets through. In cEDH, neither a little blocker or attacker…
