Quote from trancekat »Pulling out gobis is a mistake. We do not have better replacements dor their abilities.
If someone is taunting you that you play a gobo deck,who the eff cares? (12 years generally) Play the best cards you can; at the moment the abilities gobos bring to the deck are not replaced by anything better in my opinion.
Quote from Gaka »Quote from CentralCommand »Oh I forgot, what about Commune with Lava Gaka? There were a few heated debates about that card on here but it looks like it didn't make your list. Did you reject it?
The problem with Commune with Lava is that it is at its best when you have more mana than you know what to do with. If you've got six billion mana and this in hand, then hell yeah. Until that point, however, you get to stare at it with distaste. Casting it for one isn't useful. Casting it for two sucked up four mana to exile two cards you may or may not want to play now but might want to later. At the very least the cards stick around until the end of the next turn, so it's not completely useless.
If you're playing a UR storm, this card is probably crazy useful. You can cast this for some amount at the end of turn and go into the combo turn with another X cards to play with. But we're not a combo deck. This effect isn't useful to us.

Quote from Moxnix »He uses both ban lists combine so it's illegal for him to use. Sorin is a fine card in mono black but he likes synergy and that's more of a good stuff card. My builds a little more good stuff with a big mana theme like a more typical mono black build and horobi is still an excellent general that allows some really obscure cards to become stupidly powerful. If your going for optimization yes use the tutors that are banned in dual that he's not using.
Quote from osieorb18 »Yeah, I'm probably cutting it, and I was actually running a sac outlet even.
Quote from Silenciaco »It was one of the major obstacles I had with my mono w deck. Since I was already intending to use Faith's Reward effects, I decided to double down by using eggs to get around the card draw issue.
I was curious to how other mono w decks were solving the problem.
You could probably look into coercive portal for potentially one card a turn.
Pursuit of Knowledge is a card that I run. It's an enchantment, but I'm not sure if there is a way to abuse it in your deck.
Memory Jar is something I end up shoving into most of my decks.
I see that you are using Crucible. Cycle lands could be a decent addition as well. When I redo my mana base I intend to put cycle lands into my deck as well.
Quote from Silenciaco »For chaos warp, I ended up asking you because recently I've run into situations where it's best use was to target my own stuff. Even though I want to remove it, I'm also unsure if I should remove it. The only situation in which some other form of removal would be worse could be against gods, but most of these gods we go up against are also commanders. Hence my conundrum.
