AEther Shockwave Discussion

Nemesis on White Tiger Kingdom

so some other lifegain options are

Authority of the Consuls - gains life every time an opponent plays a creature and taps that creature down, letting you swing in. Obviously dependent on your opponent here.

Path of Bravery - gains life everytime you swing, which should hopefully be often and buffs your creatures for it.

as for Bonds, I was surprised to find that there aren't that many cards in white that tap all creatures your opponent controls. The only cheaper option with that effect is AEther Shockwave . If you're looking for a mass lifelink, an alternative would be Ondu Rising .

Clash of Realities over AEther Shockwave . Divine Visitation over Cancel . There is more but that's for now.

Had some painful non-bo experiences today. Thrilling Encore isn't that good with Anafenza exiling their stuff. Probably better off with something like Make a Stand.

Plague of Vermin helped them more than it hurt. Although I gave my guys trample, their Soul Warden and Mycoloth equalized my alpha strike. I could really use a one-sided Ascendant Evincar of some kind. I was thinking of Amulet of Safekeeping, although it nerfs Ogre Slumlord. I might have to go full anti-token with Virulent Plague.

I'm leaning too hard on Merciless Eviction to undo a fortress. I could use a Nev Disk or even Purify. I also need a way to break through with my developed rat army, so I'm considering AEther Shockwave. I also need to reuse a non-rat card, possibly just add Regrowth.

Minor alteration you might enjoy - Horde of Notions for a general - you can't tutor out cards from play, but it lets you run any changling for , and cast them from graveyard as well.

another odd option is Reaper King for destruction of permanents

odd "lords" that might fit well -

Admiral Beckett Brass and or Captivating Vampire - Steal their stuff!

Bramblewood Paragon & the their tribal parallels - give a static bonus even after the card leaves

Death Baron - pairs well with first / double strike. kill stuff dead. good alternitive to Zombie Master

Drogskol Captain - another lord of the unreal, effectively. plus it steroids

Scion of Oona - see above, but shroud. can't target it, but has flash

Field Marshal and / or Stromkirk Captain - pairs well with deathtouch

Seshiro the Anointed - big buffs + card draw = win

Midnight Entourage - Gives a mini Phyrexian Arena effect when one dies

Myr Galvanizer - untapping is amazing. do stuff more!

Pheres-Band Warchief - because tribal centaurs are apparently a thing

Timber Protector & Crested Sunmare - because indistructable is amazing

Unnatural Selection - because more messing with stuff is more better

AEther Shockwave & Whelming Wave - lockout effects

Crux of Fate - because it is now viable in a non-dragon tribal

Goblin Chieftain - an alternitive to goblin king - not a fan of landwalk, personally. to circumstantial

you should make room for some of the following

just some suggestions

landofMordor on Spirited Away: A Paranormal Primer [U/W Spirits]

Maybe try AEther Shockwave or something similar against those Elves/zoo decks you mention. At 4 mana it might be a bit much, but I think it's instant speed can close out games and lets you react to the opponent's play a bit better. Just a suggestion, but cool deck!

Today was Saviors of Kamigawa, and we were looking forward to seeing some of the Japanese-style Spirits and curious mechanics of the set.

Some noteworthy Spirits-matter cards included Haru-Onna (supposedly very powerful in draft), AEther Shockwave, and Fiddlehead Kami. It was also interesting to see cards-in-hand-matters cards too, like Sokenzan Spellblade, Kitsune Loreweaver, and Oppressive Will. Most intereting though was probably the Soulshift mechanic. We'd never seen it before and it allows you to return Spirit card with lower CMCs from your graveyard to your hand. Kami of Empty Graves was one example, but the Promised Kannushi we cracked would have been our 1st Pick in a real draft.

Today, though, we were most excited to pull this card:


We got a foil too: Death Denied. Not sure when it happened, but Wizards obviously moved to full-foil somewhere in there, for all-over shiny goodness :-)
