Aura Mutation Discussion

Cazzuto111 on Sunforger: can I retrieve multicolored ...

1 month ago

For the Sunforger card once I unattach by paying the r/w mana cost it says I can cast a red or white instant card. My question is can I play a multicolor card if it includes red or white, such as Aura Mutation in the cost or does it have to be purely red or white. Thanks

ThallionDarkshine Thank you for the suggestions! I have been on the fence about Artifact Mutation and Aura Mutation since I started playtesting, because all the op artifacts are low costing and I'm running Aura Shards and Martyr's Bond. I thought about Sundering Growth at first, but the chance to wiff on a populate or populating a 1/1 seemed worse than a definite 1/1 or more.

My meta runs problematic beaters more than strong utility creatures anything like Sigarda, Host of Herons, Blightsteel Colossus, and Eldrazi. So, I was thinking to build an army and force them to block with the ultility and when a beefy thing with protection attacks, make them sacrifice it. Targeting the player to sac a creature gets past hexproof and shroud, but I will admit it has 50/50 success rate. If they attack with more than 1 creature it is less effective.

That is just what I was thinking. I will subbed them out and see what happens(probably good things). Thank you for the suggestions!

I think you need to cut back a bit on token producers, and add some more removal. I don't think Artifact Mutation or Aura Mutation are worth it, since they are greatly lacking in versatility. If there's even one moment when you need to remove a powerful artifact/enchantment and have the wrong one in hand, you'll regret running them. Sundering Growth, while producing much fewer tokens on average, fills a similar role but is easier to cast and hits both permanent types. Krosan Grip is just a great removal spell that hits lots of problematic artifacts/enchantments. Like the mutations, Entrapment Maneuver may seem like a removal spell with upside, there are lots of relevant creatures that won't be attacking that need to die. Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are some of the best removal spells in the format, there's no reason you should pass on them.

Aura Mutation is good removal with token generation.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion, I think, is the best Planeswalker for a token deck and would be a good replacement for Valiant Protector at 6cmc slot.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is your cheaper Gaea's Cradle.

Orochi Hatchery is a good way to make a ton of tokens all at once, and Riptide Replicator can make one huge creature. Additionally, Soul Foundry can give you copies of your favorite guys, like Mycoloth or Wayfaring Temple.

I can think of more, but hope those are helpful.

Bxbx on Gahiji Tokens

Hi, I play Gahiji, Honored One myself and decided to build it as a fast and explosive deck. That's why I cut cards like Parallel Lives, Assemble the Legion or Iroas, God of Victory. Especially the first two can go crazy if they stick around too long, but if you're playing in a rather competitive meta, this will not happen.

Altar of the Brood seems unnecessary to me as a secondary win con. You're also helping the graveyard decks with it.

Also, I would cut down on the anthem-effects because Gahiji, Honored One does already provide that. Especially Titanic Ultimatum because it's so difficult to cast. I'd recommend Mercadia's Downfall.

Artifact Mutation and to a lesser extent Aura Mutation are really cool as well.
