Which recipes are the best for crafting electric circuits and advanced electric circuits? Should you use electrum instead of redstone and halving the costs of other ingredients or is electrum more costly than the other ingredients? With silk touch you can get the redstone ore block for macerating and you get 10 redstone per ore that way but silver and gold are still only 2 per ore so redstone probably is way more abundant. Silver isn't rare at all but gold is pretty hard to come by. But do you need redstone for other things 5 times more or not? You do save on glowstone in the advanced circuit recipe, that might be worth it as glowstone doesn't have any new sources.
