Arcum's Whistle


(3), Tap: Choose target non-Wall creature the active player has controlled continuously since the beginning of the turn. That player may pay (X), where X is that creature's converted mana cost. If he or she doesn't, the creature attacks this turn if able, and at end of turn, destroy it if it didn't attack. Play this ability only before attackers are declared.

The wording we were looking for is "didn't attack." Some suggestions:

Angel's Trumpet , Arcum's Whistle , Oracle en-Vec , Siren's Call .

Yikes. That's quite a wall of discombobulated text. At your core, you're asking for cards that avoid Protection, so I will focus on that.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I presume this is for an EDH deck you are working on? If so, then Commander Help would be the correct board.

If not, there is a section creatively named "General" for general Magic discussion. I can move the thread if you believe that would be more appropriate.

Its nice to see a fellow lover of Grothama! I have a budget version that takes a different trek with Grothama. Mine focuses more on using the card draw ability as a trap for punishing opponents with the fight ability. A few cards that you might consider that can force your opponents into tangling with Grothama: Arcum's Whistle, Bullwhip, and Magnetic Web.

Foe-Razer Regent also works great with the big wurm.

Lastly, I find the "Monarch" mechanic to be really strong with Grothama. Regal Behemoth and Entourage of Trest would help there.

Here is my version if you feel like taking a look: Boss Battle. It's power level is much lower than yours due to the budget restrictions, but it seems pretty fun!

Replaced Arcum's Whistle which sounded fun with the much more practical for EDH burn Lich's Mirror

Yes, I want some of those - and Citadel would make a great addition - but don't have the resources to get many new cards for my decks at the moment :)

Tarnished Citadel is on my list along with City of Brass, Grand Coliseum and Nomad Stadium for lands, and Jade Monolith, Staff of Nin, Scepter of Empires and Torture Chamber for atifacts (Acorn Catapult already being in the deck). I also had Rod of Ruin in here until recently, but started to attend EDH tournaments and felt it was suboptimal :)

Oh, and there's the odd Witch Hunter, too.

(Ancient Tomb is totally beyond my budget...)

I also consider some cards that force my opponents to attack, such as Arcum's Whistle, Bullwhip or Oracle en-Vec.

If you have any other propositions, please share them :)

Does Arcum's Whistle work on creatures with defender that aren't walls? Like for instance Trestle Troll?

Thanks :-)

Try out Luminarch Ascension, Siren's Call, Bident of Thassa or even Hunted Phantasm. Lots of planeswalkers are good too since, if they are left unattacked for a few turns, you can get some juicy value off their ult. One last weird one is Arcum's Whistle.PS, controlling people on their turns can be a pseudo way of making them attack you (i.e. Emrakul, the Promised End, Mindslaver, etc..)

No data for this card yet.
