    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    Yeah, it would be pretty silly if it could fetch Mox Tantalite or Lotus Bloom too. Obviously the old school moxen work well with it. Even stuff like Mox Opal or Chrome Mox as mana sources or...

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    Hex Parasite doesn't quite work the way you'd want it it to with Urza's Saga, but it's a cute interaction anyway.

    Hmm... Its "mana cost" not "converted mana cost." That means the III ability...

    Re: Legacy Eggs

    I've wondered about Mox Amber with Kinnan and Emry, but it probably needs one or two more legends.

    I think that Pardoxical Outcome and Second Sunrise/Faith's Reward want to be in different decks...

    An alternative possibility might be Conspiracy Theorist + Hazoret's Monument/Quicksmith Genius. The monument's loot trigger works with non-red creatures, so that concept could run stuff like...

    Suppose that you have Conspiracy Theorist and Artificer's Intuition in Play, an artifact in hand, and LEDs and the Elixir in the library, and UUU free.

    Re: Conspiracy Storm

    It takes a little bootstrapping, but you can stack the LED activation over the AI activation so that the AI card ends up in hand with the LED mana, and, with Elixir of Immortality, it's even infinite...

    I guess you can go off with UUU and an artifact to discard. With UUU, you can activate AI to find an LED, activate it again to discard the LED, and then activate it a third time so that you can...

    Re: [SCD] Conspiracy Theorist

    Hazoret's Monument is another looter, but CMC 3 is a lot in legacy and Grinning Ignus/Runaway Steam-kin piles probably aren't much good.

    Re: [SCD] Conspiracy Theorist

    Harnfel doesn't draw so you need something like Vega, the Watcher to turn the exiled cards back into cards that can be discarded.

    [SCD] Conspiracy Theorist

    This card from strixhaven seems very powerful, but hasn't seen much discussion:



    For example, it's very strong with stuff that relies on discard to be balanced like Lion's Eye Diamond or...

    Re: Dragons with Crabs

    If you're running UR, Careful Study and maybe Izzet charm ought to be a consideration.

    Yeah, I think that's going to be where you end up if playing a couple of Dualcaster Mages is already too much for you.

    Re: 3 cmc creature comboes

    The sack is part of the cost, so you get two three drops that stay in play. (And, any number of dualcaster mages you want to bring out before that.)

    Re: 3 cmc creature comboes

    I guess you can run dualcasters + clones -> Nantuko Husk + Mogis's Marauder, but that's hardly compelling.

    Double Combat Celebrant can win if you untap but is pretty weak.

    It puts the creatures on the battlefield. So it's more efficient as X gets bigger. For some kinds of creatures, it can also matter that they come into play simultaneously.
