AEtherling Discussion

SynergyBuild on Should I Pretend This Or That?

My take on Mairsil doesn't run the comboes you do at all. I go:

Buried Alive into Sage of Hours, Anthroplasm, and AEtherling, next turn drop our favorite big-boy Mairsil, exile AEtherling, then procede to flicker him to exile the rest and win is what I have been doing. I sometimes entomb a Mirror-Mad Phantasm to go all Hermit Druid all over my opponents, flipping Narcomoeba, Fatestitcher and Gravecrawler just to Dread Return a Phyrexian Delver into Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, copying Phyrexian Delver into Deceiver Exarch or Pestermite

You know, whatever works!

DarkStarStorm on Tetsuko Extra Turns

I guess that my quandry is that most of the 1/1s you have already have built-in evasion. These are the only ones that you have that don't (discounting Timestream Navigator because it's not there to attack).

  • Eternal of Harsh Truths
  • Master of Waves
  • Raven Guild Master
  • Salvage Drone
  • Scroll Thief
  • Shorecrasher Elemental

A quick gander at EDHREC shows some cards that are crazy when paired with Tetsuko.

Makes sense Blessed Alliance is $1 vs like .20.

What do you think about AEtherling? I feel like its a better win con than Battlegrace Angel.

PIZZ_PAZZ As long as you jump around the "once each turn" non-sense the staff is great. Maybe I'll steal the one I have in my Karn deck, kind of an expensive card to grab a second copy... I'm not a fan of equipment with Marisil since I tend to use AEtherling or Pack Rat to cage more things. I would have to re-equip it over and over. The rings are on my list to get though. Thanks for your thoughts!

Skjoldschoennemann I actually just removed Conjurer's Closet and Hateflayer. The closet doesn't play well with AEtherling and so more often than not just sat there and did nothing or almost nothing. I guess it saves me but that hasn't seemed like enough of a reason to keep it. Hateflayer is fun and will likely find a way back into the deck I just like Spikeshot Elder more since i don't need to do any tapping which is a requirement if I want to untap.

I tired a few bounce effects before but I just didn't like them. Ends up requiring too much mana and I can only get Mairsil back out on my turn. Flicker effects allow me to just keep things going much easier and in a much more broken way.

Unfortunately no.

All abilities that have "at the beginning of your/the next end step" in them trigger at the same time. This includes both Conjurer's Closet and the delayed triggered ability of AEtherling. When Conjurer's Closet triggers and goes on the stack, you have to choose its target at that point. Mairsil, the Pretender will still be in exile and thus not a valid target.

If Conjurer's Closet instead read "you may exile a creature you control" instead of "target creature," then it would work if you put the triggers in the right order on the stack, as in that case the Closet wouldn't target, and therefore wouldn't need to have a trigger chosen when it goes on the stack.

Also, Chromium, the Mutable is a powerhouse. Such a workhorse, and might even be about as good of a finisher as AEtherling in rtr standard was.

Yea, unfortunately Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is way too expensive right now too. I picked mine up during prerelease since I kinda knew how ridiculous he was going to be, and control walkers are just historically expensive.

If I have Mairsil, the Pretender and I cage AEtherling, because it technically is the begining of the end step when Mairsil is returned, can I use Conjurer's Closet to exile Mairsil again at the begining of the end step still?
