AEtherling Discussion

Dango on Araithia (Rat), the Gateless, and ...

1 week ago

It really is a tricky thing trying to incorporate all of a character's abilities into something mechanically sound and on theme. At one point I tried to make partner Brothers Yamazaki and gave them abilities on theme with each brother but it felt really unbalanced.

Realistically instead of making her color identity reflected in the casting cost, maybe try something where her cost to cast uses Gruul colors (maybe , , or depending on the body and abilities you give her) denoting her origin, but utilize an activated ability, or rather activated abilities to expand her color identity and grant her an effect until end of turn reminiscent to that of a AEtherling type effect for each color outside of Gruul. She could have base abilities inspired by Gruul mechanics, but she could also "borrow" additional effects from other guilds that are still thematic to her character.

Just an idea I've been pondering for a while so I hope you like it. :)

DrukenReaps on Mairsil, The Pretender

1 month ago

Mairsil is my absolute favorite deck and is certainly difficult to deal with. The way I've set him up people often have to use 2 or sometimes 3 removal spells in a single turn to get one to stick. Then I just recast him the next turn...

All that said lots of cards mostly mentioned above will destroy the deck. I wouldn't bother with things already in exile. The cards that do that are so very specific that they do almost nothing outside of being a minor annoyance even to Mairsil. Damping Matrix on the other hand is a card I fear when playing the deck.

Mairsil has been an odd one for me to learn. Most important is to keep in mind that each ability can only be used once each turn. So if they use that AEtherling to dodge your Murder and don't have anything else caged get someone to throw another removal.

DrukenReaps on Strong Non-Infinite builds

Mairsil, the Pretender tends towards combos but some of them are more like wicked interactions and are not infinite.

Spikeshot Elder // Hateflayer + Tree of Perdition + a way to reset Mairsil's toughness like AEtherling , this allows you to kill 1 player each turn.

Laboratory Maniac + Mirror-Mad Phantasm , empty library with a caged mirror mad and win.

And using Pestilent Souleater or Vector Asp with AEtherling is sneakier than most people realize.

Rambolicious_0 i dont want to flick mairsil in that way. the idea is tutor the Pack Rat or AEtherling to exile it, and use that ability. in my experience, i prefer AEtherling . Ty for your comment! any other suggestion or question will be answered!
