Arc Lightning Discussion

Scud422 on Copying spells that divide damage ...

1 year ago

If you copy a spell that says "this does X damage divided as you choose among any number of targets" with an effect that says "you may choose new targets for the copy," can you have a different number of targets with the copy? I assumed that if you copied something like Arc Lightning or Conflagrate (with x=3) you could do something along the lines of: 1 damage to 1 creature and 2 damage to another with the original and 3 damage to your opponent with the copy. But I was looking over the rulings for The Mirari Conjecture and saw this confusing paragraph: "If the spell has damage divided as it was cast (like Fight with Fire does when kicked), the division cant be changed (although the targets receiving that damage still can)."I've never seen anything like this in the rulings for other copy effects and couldn't find anything along those lines in the comprehensive rules.

Or Twin Bolt, Twin Bolt, Arc Lightning. This needs further testing.

@Snap157, Yes and no. If my opponent is at 20 life it would fall a little short but if theyre at 18 or 19 it would work like Arc Lightning and help Vexing Devil get my opponent to 13 life. I do like its mana cost though.

I would start off with the following:

-2 Blazing Volley

+1 Lightning Bolt

+1 Flame Slash or Magma Jet or Arc Lightning or Fireblast

Also the other pauper dual-lands, to ensure consistency. Or even Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds would do, as well. And of course Ash Barrens but it's a few bucks

SB ideas

Move the Blazing Volley here, Pyroblast (absolute must-have, I'd go 4x), Smash to Smithereens, Flame Slash, Journey to Nowhere, Dawn Charm, Fragmentize

You have a nice looking deck CaptDan. I do really like what Arc Lightning can do for enrage triggers and I think I will incoporate it. Thanks!

Hey! Nice deck.

Check mine : Dinosaurs Enrage (Rivals of Ixalan). You will see some enrage combos. I use Arc Lightning for example, to activate enrage.

I'd be tempted to splash red burn into this and capitalize on the card Willbreaker. Would certainly speed up the frustration of your opponent. Just a thought :)

The likes of Twin Bolt and Arc Lightning tend to be super effective with that synergy.
