The_Epic_Dog on Niv-Mizzet reborn and split cards

4 months ago

If i cast Niv-Mizzet Reborn and reveal a white green card, Supply / Demand , Armed / Dangerous , and 7 lands, can i take demand as azorius, the white green card as selesnya, and Armed / Dangerous as gruul?

Thank you for explaining how split cards function CMC-wise. I had totally forgotten about them. Your Armed / Dangerous example doesn't track though. Were you trying to continue with Appeal / Authority and mislinked?

Caerwyn on Does Kicker count as part ...

Though this question has been answered, I wanted to make one correction to Gidgetimer's follow-up response on the off-chance anyone is reading this thread in the future. To clarify, it is not a substantive change to the answer to the question itself, but rather the dicta regarding cards with variable CMCs.

There are actually two times a converted mana cost on a card can change. The first is spells with in the cost, such as those Gidgetimer mentioned. The second is split cards. These could be cards with Aftermath , cards with fuse , or generic split cards .

While in any zone other than the stack (Library, hand, graveyard, exile, and ante--there are no split cards that can be on the battlefield or in the command zone), the CMC is equal to the total casting cost of the card. Using our three above-linked options: Appeal / Authority would have a CMC of 3 when in non-stack zones; Alive / Well would have a CMC of 5; and Assault / Battery would have a CMC of 5.

When on the stack, the CMC is equal to the total cost of the sides being cast. For Armed / Dangerous , this will be either 1 or 2, depending on which portion is being cast. For Assault / Battery , his will be either 1 or 4, depending on the side being cast.

It gets a bit funky with Fuse, as there are multiple options. Alive / Well will have a CMC of four if only Alive is cast, a CMC of 1 if only Well is cast, and a CMC of 5 if both halves are fused together.

Anyway, sorry to post on a closed thread--I just wanted to make sure all the information was available.

Spirits on Budget Xenagos, God of Revels - EDH $50

1 year ago

Armed // Dangerous another CMC2 Double Strike, $0.21. Downside is it's Sorcery.

Archetype of Aggression, gives all your creatures Trample, $0.39. 6 ground + 4 flying (partial evasion) don't have trample, thats 1/2 your available hitters, including 1 infect.

Gruul Signet, CMC2 Rock, $0.30.

Thud, Another Fling for CMC1 but Sorcery speed unfortunately, $0.20. Really need more Soul's Fire to Infect.

Farseek, CMC2 Ramp!!, $0.27.

Flameblast Dragon won't get his doubled. Timing is off.

Slagstorm scary because it wipes out the dorks, but I understand the thinking, with Cats/Snakes/Vampires.

Arbor Elf, CMC1 Dork, $0.26.

Beastcaller Savant, CMC2, But he has Haste, $0.40 though.

Heart Warden, annoying at CMC2, but can draw a card if late in the game if he's a dead draw, $0.20. Modular is sometimes nice, especially in longer games.

Explore might work pretty well with 40 lands, and it draws a card, so maintains your card-advantage and ramp advantage. I also feel you have quite a bit (too many) lands with all the additional ramp/dorks you have? Might try 38 instead.

Thunderfoot Baloth $1.69, but has trample, with Xenagos is 14 Trample, and gives all other creatures Trample. The best of the Trample enablers mentioned for sure.

Deus of Calamity $1.40, only 6/6 trample, but fills your Xenagos, God of Revels devotion, so he really enables a 6/5 Indestructible attacker as well.

Tyrant's Familiar feels better than a Flameblast Dragon ($1.28), because he can potentially blow away a flying blocker, $0.44.

Fyndhorn Elves ($2.03) can free up some cash for a Thunderfoot Baloth if he's an Arbor Elf $0.26.

Sakura-Tribe Elder ($1.25) is really good, but a Farseek can be effective $0.27, free up $1

Artisan of Kozilek he is 10/9 (20/19 with Xenagos), Returns a creature from your graveyard to the battlefield (not hand), and has Annihilator 2 (Opponent sacrifices 2 permanents, with haste from Xenagos) for $0.43. I have lots of this guy, I'll bring you one.

Maybe with some shuffling of mana sources you can free up cash for Malignus, but he's quite expensive. Tough for budget.

Fierce Empath tutoring Atarka, World Render or Soul of the Harvest or Siege Behemoth or Spinebiter Etc. gives consistency, I feel like its doubling your Atarka, World Render chances.

Phyrexian Hydra another Infect guy. Makes it easier to kill 3 players.

Khenra Charioteer more trample, hes a 3/3 so he's not shabby for CMC3. Probably don't need that much anyway.

Life's Legacy could re-populate your hand and stabilize your life. Feel like the cards better than the double life on Predator's Rapport.

Talisman of Impulse best non- non- mana source available for $0.33.

Explosive Vegetation is good, but $0.92 and CMC4, I'm not sure. Might look for another lower CMC one to ramp a little faster for that $. Go a bit faster.

I haven't seen this one work yet, See the Unwritten and at $0.82, I'd probably just draw another creature like a Artisan of Kozilek. If you get lucky and the stars align, maybe you get 2, but one might be an Elf. I'd rather just draw another key creature, instead of the randomness. If it was CMC5 or CMC4 and casting a CMC8 maybe, but it's CMC6 probably casting a CMC6 or lower (based on probability, I can calculate it when I have some more time)

Living Hive is in Main and Maybeboard.

I only like Momentous Fall (too expensive $), Deus of Calamity (enables Xenagos), Kavu Predator could be interesting in our Pod (vs cats/vamps anyway). Malignus if you can budget him in. Steel Hellkite good utility again CMC0 Snakes/Vampires for example. Thunderfoot Baloth.

Don't like anything else there.

I think, less lands -2 perhaps, cheaper ramp (and maybe 1 more), 1 more creature (infect guy preferably), reallocate some cash to make sure each creature is a finisher, like Avatar of Fury is kind of blah, if you can cast for 2 he's ok, but what you doing with the other mana that turn anyway, would rather pay the 6 for a finisher. Siege Dragon feels a little underpowered too, but can board wipe (cats/vamps/snakes), would rather use Steel Hellkite instead, better control, lower CMC.

Inquisitor's Flail not sure equip is right, but it is only equip so maybe? Rancor instead?

Living Hive feels small for CMC8! Wtf, not sure what your doing with the 1/1 insects, that don't even fly.

That's about all I have for now +1.

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! Have you considered Lightning Bolt as a very efficient removal spell, or perhaps Assault Strobe in place of Armed / Dangerous? I also prefer Slip Through Space to Artful Dodge, and I'm a big fan of using Serum Visions to smooth your draws. Also, Mana Leak and Remand are two of the best counterspells in Modern, due to their efficiency. Good luck!

Kind words, thanks SphinxOfChimes1080! I can see Armed / Dangerous being a blowout in the right situation, cool little tech card.

+1, I've always been looking for some good advice on an Uril deck and my search is over. Luckily, this build is very similar to mine. Super fun commander! I like Armed / Dangerous it's won me several games

Iron_Cube on Uril got a nice budget aura

Boros Charm is great for double strike or protecting all your permanents with indestructible for one turn. Armed / Dangerous is Sorcery, but usually you already have evasion on Uril and he should be unblockable. But adding Dangerous effect on another creature will also clear blockers. I like the general versatility of this spell. But you only have 1 instant in the whole deck (Without Sigarda's Aid Flash). You can get a lot more value if you play something on your opponent's turn or combat. Beast Within can take care of anything for example...

My friend also had a sacrifice deck. It's hard because it's the main weakness of Uril, the Miststalker (+Board wipes). But you could play some spells for that, even if it doesn't fit the theme. Like Secure the Wastes or something. I like Vitality Charm but I haven't seen it anywhere else. It's not incredible, but an instant token can help, and the other modes have some use too.
