    Re: Demented Phoenix Concept

    Yeah, I think that that's much more of an issue than potential challenges with reliably getting enough CMC into the graveyard is.

    Thanks for the insightful commentary.

    Demented Phoenix Concept

    Just working through a dubious idea...

    Looking through the new set, I noticed that Lamplight Phoenix can combine with Altar of Dementia to mill the whole library while also repeatedly setting off...
  3. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    I was trying to figure out whether there were decks that would get extra benefit from them or if there was a way to make silly stuff like casting Worldly Tutor with the surveil trigger on the stack...
  4. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    Do we think that the surveil duals will see any play as fetchable 1-ofs?
  5. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    The "phoenix with set mechanic" :


    can plausibly mill the whole deck in combination with Altar of Dementia(and that readily leads to winning through Bridge from Below.) That said, I'm not sure...
  6. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    There's also a decent number of beaters like Myr Superion where dodging the cast cost or restrictions could be nice.
  7. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    It doesn't speed you up, slow down the opponent, or put pressure on them, and there are many better "discard then draw" options for use as enablers. I guess it could be part of a Solitary...
  8. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    Probably a decent Collected Company hit with anything that has ETB triggers too, and works with a lot of the 'humans' deck like Kitesail Freebooter and Thalia's Lieutenant. Does it work with death...
  9. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    Without the requirement for disguise, Expose the Culprit could be an alterative way to dodge the dreadnaught's ETB trigger. Though 4 mana and 2 cards is probably below rate for a 12/12 trampler...
  10. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    I'm having a hard time seeing the value. Can you describe a situation where that card would be good?
  11. Re: [MKM] Murders at Karlov Mannor: Anyone have a Clue?

    Alas, Expose the Culprit only turns creatures with disguise face down, otherwise it would fit in that deck too.

    Sticky: Re: Obligatory shitty card creation thread

    That seems a bit stronger than dispel vs stuff like flusterstorm or cursecatcher effects.

    The red version would be something like:

    Resolve

    Instant
    Split Second (As long as this spell is...

    Re: Scam In Half

    Yeah. Dualcaster Mage copies Saw in Half with the copy targeting Dualcaster Mage. (The Dualcaster Mage effect is an etb ability so - at least by default - it's in play and can be targeted while the...

    Re: Scam In Half

    I was expecting that if Saw in half were to be playable, it would be in a combo (i.e. with Dualcaster Mage to make infinite tokens) rather than in a more value oriented approach since - particularly...
  15. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    Yeah, I've got brain damage where I get stuck on silly things. I do find myself wondering how often the extra :1: in casting cost on Etali is offset by the better triggered ability in comparison to...
  16. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    It seems like "loses to counterspell" doesn't really matter much after creative technique's been cast as part of the combo since individual copies of creative technique also lose to counterspell. ...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Lands are an easy and well-known way to make chase cards. There are also legitimate 'quality of game play' reasons to limit how easily people can mess with lands. I don't think that WotC has any...
  18. Re: [LCI] Pirates, Vampires and Dinos, oh my! The Lost Caverns of Ixalan spoliers

    Seems like it might find some niche play as a 1-of in decks with Urza's Saga and Walking Ballista.
  19. Re: [LCI] Pirates, Vampires and Dinos, oh my! The Lost Caverns of Ixalan spoliers

    What cards do you want to use it with? Legacy is a very mana-constrained format, so there are very few cards that have mana-using abilities in popular use and most of them are effectively single use...
  20. Re: [LCI] Pirates, Vampires and Dinos, oh my! The Lost Caverns of Ixalan spoliers

    Seems like EDH fodder to me. What's a game plan where it makes sense to pick that over one of the many creatures that win more directly like Griseldad, Craterhoof or Worldspine Wurm?

    Yeah, it should definitely have included an "other".

    How about this for a bad idea:

    Mass Confusion
    Instant
    RRR
    Copy and exile any number of spells or abilities. The copies are controlled by the controllers of the original spells and abilities.

    Re: [WOE] Born to be Wilds of Eldraine

    It could also hit 1-of hate pieces or something like Wheel of Fate, and, at cmc 4 it's compatible with the cascade suite.
  25. Re: March of the Machine, The Aftermath: All those questions you didn't ask, answered

    Filter out seems like a big effect for 3 mana.
