Anoint Discussion

Yesterday on Are 'as this enters' and ...

3 months ago

A few questions here.

Mox Diamond has a replacement effect applying if it would enter the battlefield, ultimately allowing it to enter the battlefield. It enters the battlefield at the same time as it would if it didn't have a replacement effect.

So I'm drawing a parallel for instant and sorcery spells — effects which say to do something 'as you cast an instant or sorcery spell' ( Splicer's Skill ) or 'as you cast this spell' ( Anoint ). So these are also replacement effects, right? They take you casting the spell and replace it with you casting the spell + another effect? As I understand it, this makes sense because some cards ( Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder ) would need these effects to apply before triggers would go on the stack from casting their respective spells.

Are all 'as ~ enters the battlefield' effects also replacement effects? I know Clone is. Is Thunder-Thrash Elder ? Is Master Biomancer ?


Also, I regret waiting so long to ask this section of this question, but I discovered a related oddity while playing Magic: Arena about a month ago. We were playing one of the weird game modes allegedly related to the War of the Spark storyline, where each player starts the game with a Momir Vig, Simic Visionary Avatar emblem. There was a creature on each side of the battlefield, and I activated the emblem, getting a Clone creature (one of Mirror Image / Protean Raider / Spark Double ), and wasn't given the option to have the token enter as a copy of another creature.

I was looking up rulings, and on Prototype Portal on Gatherer (as imprinting a Phyrexian Metamorph would also result in creating a clone token), it mentions "Any “as [this permanent] enters the battlefield” or “[this permanent] enters the battlefield with” abilities of the exiled card will also work."

Is there a ruling that I'm not understanding here? Or do I understand correctly, but this must be a case of either there's an Arena oversight or I must be misremembering?

kefisher2 on Commanding an Army of Burn

This is a cool deck. There's a lot of damage potential. Some things that have caught my attention:

  1. Why is Great Furnace in your deck? I don't see any synergy with artifacts/affinity. An Evolving Wilds or Abandoned Outpost would be better suited.
  2. Why do you need snow-covered basic lands? For Skred?
  3. I think some heavy ramp is needed for this deck to cast your instants and sorceries. Tithe, the rituals, Seething Song, and Battle Hymn would be really good.
  4. Fanatical Firebrand works really well with Fanatical Devotion. Hey, both have "Fanatical" in their names.
  5. I think if you can incorporate buyback cards in the deck, then you can get more value out of Blaze Commando. Cards like Anoint, Reaping the Rewards, and Seething Anger might work.

Hoped this helped some.

Change of Heart & Anoint for continual heroic triggers every turn dependent on how your yard looks of course.

Onion_duck on update Duel Commander banlist

I went to the card's page and submitted a fix to remove it from the duel commander ban list. Would also like to point out the "View on Gatherer" link is busted. Brings you to the card Anoint for some reason.

Anax and Cymede? Neat choice. But I see you're over the deck limit, and some of your cards could be replaced.

Cathars' Crusade is an upgrade over Valor in Akros.

Reckless Charge is better than Uncanny Speed.

Journey to Nowhere is better than Suspension Field.

Path to Exile or Return to Dust over Celestial Purge.

Boros Signet over Boros Cluestone.

Swords to Plowshares over Devouring Light.

You don't have enough card draw to need Thought Vessel. Mind Stone or Coldsteel Heart is a better 2-mana rock. Also lose Springleaf Drum; you want to attack with your creatures, not tap them for mana.

Kabira Vindicator, Hand of Justice and Foundry Champion all cost too much for what they do. Better options are Soltari Champion, Pianna, Nomad Captain and Catapult Master, but you might not have enough soldiers to use Catapult Master to the fullest. In any case, don't run Hand of Justice.

Anoint, Seething Anger and Mark of Fury are nice as reusable heroic spells. I'd cut Hold the Line and Righteousness since they're dead when you're not blocking.

You badly, badly need a Sunforger to find your combat tryxxx, and its good pal Mistveil Plains to keep doing it again. Odric, Master Tactician is also a must to make sure your army gets through.

Tempt with Glory should be Ajani Steadfast.

Wear / Tear over Shattering Blow.

You don't have enough +1/+1 counter stuff for Elite Scaleguard to be worth it, but that can be remedied with some more bolster and outlast cards like Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Abzan Falconer. I think the Scaleguard could really shine in this deck with the right support.

Cut all the battalion creatures. Battle cry is much better (Hero of Bladehold, Accorder Paladin, Hero of Oxid Ridge, Goblin Wardriver, maybe Signal Pest).

Zada, Hedron Grinder is kind of like a backup Anax and Cymede. Note that the copies won't trigger your heroic guys cuz copying and casting aren't the same. But I'd cut all the heroic creatures anyway, except Phalanx Leader and maybe Fabled Hero.

Veteran Swordsmith should be Spear of Heliod. You're running too many non-soldier creatures for the Swordsmith to be worth it. Veteran Armorer is not worth running at all.

Paragon of New Dawns should be Angel of Jubilation.

First Response should be Mobilization, Heliod, God of the Sun or Goblin Assault. Most decks won't be hitting you often enough to get soldiers consistently.

Fury of the Horde should be Increasing Devotion or Conqueror's Pledge. It's more important to focus on building and protecting an army than to get into extra combat shenanigans.

Opaline Unicorn should be Chromatic Lantern

Crusader of Odric could be...Young Pyromancer maybe? I'd keep the creature curve pretty low to get the most out of Return to the Ranks.

Peace, and have fun Borosing

Thanks Acheron-69! Sunforger can work- not sure how often I'd activate it but it's a great card I don't have in any other decks. I'll check my collection.

Gift of Immortality might replace Anoint, unsure what else I'd cut. Have a suggestion?
