MagicalHacker on Looking for a a way ...

I do have a list of cards that can protect your commander (MagicalHacker - List of All Protecting Cards), but as for cards that make her unblockable, cards in her colors that can do that (including previously mentioned cards here) are as follows:

I think those are the best options for making Hapatra unblockable.

WhiteWeasel on Building a budget Voltron

6 days ago

So due to being less than thrilled with my Bant Token deck, I was thinking about rejigging it to be a voltron deck since my commander; Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is pretty good at powering themselves up since I often play multiple opponents in my local magic group, and was considering of changing it to a new theme.

Cards I own

I For control and disruption I have plenty of control cards like Convolute, Counterspell, Simic Charm, Spell Rupture, etc... Disruption includes Divine Reckoning, Pacifism, Diminish, Paralyzing Grasp, Rapid Hybridization, Defang, Cage of Hands As well as stuff that trashes enchantments and Artifacts.

For powering up my commander my Artifact pool is less than ideal, had to work with what I got. They include Trailblazer's Boots, Fireshrieker, Skyblinder Staff, Ring of Evos Isle, Grafted Exoskeleton, and Livewire Lash.

Enchantments and effects for protecting my commander and/or giving them evasion include: Infiltrator's Magemark, Holy Mantle, Guildscorn Ward, Alpha Authority, Ghostform, Sheltering Word, Survive the Night, Haze of Pollen, Shielded Passage, Rogue's Passage etc...

Mana Ramp: Assume all of my mana rocks in the bant deck are going to be cannibalized.

Creatures: I don't have the good stuff to do a true one man voltron, but I can use walls like Angelic Wall, Fog Bank, Wall of Frost for protecting myself and the effects of creatures like Fan Bearer, Mistmeadow Witch, New Prahv Guildmage, to aid my commander so they can swing in for lethal damage.

Cards I'm Scouting to Buy

New commander to pair with Ishai: Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

The cards I'm looking to get for this build would be things like the WUBRG Wards and the dual color protection like Shield of Duty and Reason, and Spectra Ward. Mask of Avacyn, Swiftfoot Boots, Aqueous Form, Steel of the Godhead, Indestructibility, and Battle Mastery

Others: Ring of Thune (and the variants in the other colors),
Sword of Vengeance, Whispersilk Cloak, Inquisitor's Flail, Grappling Hook, Mask of Riddles, Sigil of Distinction,

Think this is something that I can/should pull off? Any Budget recommendations?

Spirits on You can't Touch That! Under 50$ format

1 week ago

Hi SolomonsEfreet,

Nice to have seen the 1/1 Snakes be set free on Thursday.

Black Sun's Zenith $3 would be all star.

Gale Force is a high CMC, it will kill 1/1 Thopter but little else in this format. Why not just Toxic Deluge for 1.

Really like Sorceress Queen, very cool.

Guul Draz Assassin is just -2/-2, he doesn't use counters so he's not right, won't make 1/1 Snakes. Why not just a Royal Assassin for 1/3 the cost.

Gladehart Cavalry for CMC 7, he adds +1/+1 counters, which actually remove -1/-1 counters, which you then won't be able to proliferate. He's counter productive with this Commander.

Rendclaw Trow has Wither and Persist, so he makes 2 1/1 Snakes when blocked, plus 1 1/1 Snake when he persists. 3 1/1 Snakes, a 2/2 wither, a 1/1 wither for CMC 3 is pretty OP for $0.25.

Alpha Authority, Enchantment based Hexproof (unless it's Bestow or something), isn't usually good, Swiftfoot Boots a far better option.

Never//Return could be a Hero's Downfall which is Instant speed and less than $3.50.

Carnifex Demon can keep making snakes for . CMC 6 for 4/4 Flying + 2 1/1 Snakes then for another 2 1/1 Snakes and he becomes a 6/6 Flying. Pretty decent. You have some other CMC 7 creatures that do much less for $0.60, like Arachnus Spinner, Skysnare Spider.

Midnight Banshee could create a few 1/1 Snakes, he doesn't hit himself or Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Just think of the poor 2/2 Wolfs though! He also is Whither, much better than a Arachnus Spinner or Skysnare Spider.

Grim Affliction the proliferate seems good, but not sure how many lingering -1/-1 there are. Definetely if you continue to pump up your -1/-1 counters through Wither and ETB's it would be useful. It's 2 1/1 Snakes but could be many more depending on the board state.

Deity of Scars CMC 5 for a 5/5 Trample is good, comes with 2 1/1 Snakes and for can make 2 more 1/1 Snakes and regenerate! $2.50 though, not sure if anyone of value can come out.

Some ideas anyway.

MrTomDawson on ABC - Animar's Bounce Combo

1 week ago

total_euphoria: I did have it in an earlier build (along with Alpha Authority and Shielding Plax), but it just wasn't doing enough for me. If Animar got caught up in a board wipe I'd lose the aura, so I prefer Greaves/Boots for being able to re-cast my general and re-equip right away without needing to burn Eternal Witness getting my protection back.

Izu_Korasu on Wrath of the Gods

why is Oketra the True in the list? with mostly legendary creatures its almost impossible to attack/block and when you can ... your probably already winning. (unless your 3+ consists of mostly oketra tokens, then your probably way behind) so more board wipes (like damnation) would be a better use of that slot.

also Worship seems like a good fit here (especially against combo), also cards like Asceticism/Privileged Position/Alpha Authority/Aspect of Mongoose may help with your removal problem.

vbfabled on Kruphix Lord of X and Draw

1 month ago

You may want some more things for hexproof (Swiftfoot Boots, Alpha Authority, Robe of Mirrors, etc.) if you're worried about Kruphix getting removed, because if he has indestructible and hexproof only exile board-wipes like Merciless Eviction will get rid of him. That or if they can target you to make you sacrifice (Geth's Verdict) him, which you could always solve with Witchbane Orb.
