Aethersnatch Discussion

Neotrup on Approach of the Second Sun+Aethersnatch

1 month ago

That was the initial question. The answer is, if Approach of the Second Sun is resolving and it wasn't cast, wasn't cast from your hand, or wasn't the second time it was cast, it will gain you 7 life and go to it's owner's library.

If you cast an Approach of the Second Sun, then later you're opponent uses Mindclaw Shaman to cast your Approach of the Second Sun from your hand and you Aethersnatch it, that will let you win the game, but outside of a niche circumstance like that you're not going to win Aethersnatching an Approach of the Second Sun.

Follow up:

If it was the opponent's second time casting Approach and I used Aethersnatch, what happens?

At a local edh the other day and the following happened.

My opponent cast Approach of the Second Sun for his second time. I Aethersnatch it. What happens??

We played it as I gain 7, and it went in his deck.

He said I should have won bc it was the second cast, and from his hand. I said no bc I haven't cast it at all...let alone from my hand.

Speaking of using their own stuff against them, you could also consider Spelljack, Aethersnatch, Memory Plunder, Spelltwine and Mindclaw Shaman.

Scytec I'm gonna start from scratch with this deck. The cards i've already gotten are Bribery, Mystic Remora, Clone, Seer's Vision, and some other things. I'm hoping to purchase Memnarch, Sen Triplets, , and Aethersnatch . I went to FNM at another game store and mostly everyone there was playing commander but the few who played standard had $200 or more decks. There was a commander deck that had a turn three win which was insane. Everyone played in pods and they played for the chance to win the new commander decks. All the people who go to the game store I went to are kids or people who can spend $10,000 on a deck, mainly commander. So i'm going back to the other game store I went to. My standard deck has too many high cost cards and almost everyone there was playing burn or aggro so I failed miserably. If I add menarche to the deck I plan to add Sydri, Galvanic Genius . It's going to take me forever to finish this deck because of how much the cards cost that I want to put in. For example Demonic Tutor is $44 and I don't have that kind of money so it's going to take at least 5 or 6 months before I have the final product.

Aethersnatch sounds like a solid card here.

I'm going to refrain from discussing the validity of that counterargument and instead focus on comments.

Djinn Illuminatus is super cool here.

Fireball could be a good finisher.

Dualcaster Mage is maybe an option.

Aethersnatch might be a little expensive but it can do some work.
