Act of Treason Discussion

StopShot on How Does Harmless Offering Not ...

3 weeks ago

Harmless Offering could have been in blue though. The difference is Donate allows you to give the targeted permanent to yourself if you choose to. Harmless Offering forces you to give to an opponent, so you can't use it on a creature you stole with Act of Treason or Claim the Firstborn to permanently give that stolen creature to yourself.

Even Reverberate is strictly worse from Fork. Let's say you play an important spell and your opponent tries to counter it with a blue counter spell. In return you could Reverberate the counter spell effectively countering it with the copy, but if your opponent(s) has a second counter spell in the form of Red Elemental Blast or Guttural Response they can effectively win the counter war. If you had used Fork and their were no other counter spells available you would have won the counter war.

Also Fork is better even if you account for spells like Blue Elemental Blast/Flashfreeze because that spell can counter the initial Fork/Reverberate anyway. Fork only fails if the spell you want to copy isn't red and you need it to target a creature with protection from red which is more niche than the example I gave above.

Effectively you can make a practical reprint so long as it has some aspect it falls short in, even if that downside is really negligible.

Awesome suggestions, thanks a lot! (Love Kari Zev's Expertise !!)

About Bazaar Trader , in fact it make me keep the control of the creature stolen with Claim the Firstborn / Act of Treason / Mark of Mutiny , so yeah its a good fit in there!

I like the ideas you have here, though I'm not quite sure where Bazaar Trader fits in as you're not exactly trading anything nor do you have anything that would have them at a disadvantage if they had it, i.e. Sleeper Agent . That being said, have you considered Kari Zev's Expertise ? It feels like a strictly better version of Act of Treason and it allows you to play Thud for free. Also Yahenni, Undying Partisan feels like he would be a solid sacrifice outlet for this deck since it is free and he just gets better as the game goes on. Whip of Erebos and Dictate of Erebos could help with some recursion and double your removal. Hope this helps.

Cards I would change for others that just seems better IMO.

Hypersonic Dragon (You should replace it by Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation ... or even both)

Act of Treason (Put Insurrection instead, cost a lot, but can win you a game)

By Force ( Vandalblast is way better imo)

Reckless Air Strike (again, put something like Shattering Spree )

Courier's Capsule ( Witching Well )

Turn Aside (I understand it only cost one.. but something like Arcane Denial can counter anything and make you draw, which is excellent with any Niv)

Oppressive Will (Again, Mystic Confluence or Dream Fracture is insane)

Cards you can just cut out for others I have proposed

Adaptive Automaton

Loch Dragon

Quicksilver Dragon

Tandem Lookout

Engulfing Eruption

Reminisce (you already have Elixir of Immortality , and with Laboratory Maniac , I don't think you really need a second one)

Trepanation Blade

Pyromancer's Goggles but it's up to you honestly.. just have no good experience with this card personally

Panharmonicon (not sure why you play it tho..)

Izzet Keyrune

If you want to, you can drop the "dragon" part of the deck.. it's original, funny, but I think you don't need that to win.. So cards like Crucible of Fire , Dragon Tempest , Dragon's Hoard , can be replace.

GhostChieftain on What Commander for Grixis Steal ...

I will also say marchesa. She can be pretty nutty, especially with things like Slave of Bolas and Spinal Embrace or even a simple Act of Treason + Viscera Seer .

If not marchesa, I would say vial smasher/kraum simply because they are very strong and not because of any synergy.

Last_Laugh on Stealing opponents permanents

Marchesa, the Black Rose - Her ability enables permanent theft even out of temporary theft effects like Act of Treason or Sower of Temptation . If it has a +1+1 counter when it dies, it goes to its owner's grave til end of turn, then comes back permanently under your control.
