Bazaar Trader Discussion

chalto on Feldon of the Recurring Larva

Love the idea! I'd add Goblin Bombardment and maybe a Mimic Vat if that interests you as a pseudo-Feldon.

You know another fun trick? Bazaar Trader. Target 'player' (including you) gains control (permanently) of a creature, artifact, or land that you are in control of (at least until end of turn). Basically Bazaar Trader is worded in such a way that you can keep the things you borrow. Act of Treason to take their creature until end of turn, use Bazaar Trader to give permanent control to yourself of the creature you now only temporarily control, and the new control effect overrides Act of Treason's temporary control effect so that you don't lose control of it at end of turn. Bazaar Trader on board literally turns our Act of Treason-like effects into Control Magic, only without needing the enchantment.

Bazaar Trader, Conjurer's Closet, and Synod Sanctum let you steal guys forever if just Flinging 1 guy a turn wasn't enough. Also, the Helm of Possession maybe? Steal a guy with one of your steal effects (attack with it)>sac it to helm to steal another>Brion the guy you just stole. That's stealing and killing 2 guys a turn for 4 mana. You can even steal protection from instants/sorceries like Emrakul, the Promised End with the helm.

So the primary concern I see here, is that if it's taking 8 turns to get win conditions on the table, imagine if you get slowed by 3-4 turns. Can you keep up?

I would drop the chronomaton's, the myr's, and the memnite's for draw effects, and flying walls.

Mirrorweave is a much better win condition, with a bunch of walls and Bazaar Trader + Harmless Offering. Alternatively, you have Splinter Twin and Progenitor Mimic available. With a card like Chandra's Spitfire, donating a bombshell could be 11 damage instead of 7.

It did give me some good ideas. I'm going to put it into my deck references until I have time to really delve into it. I probably won't play the leech cards. The only affect the person who controls them. Unless you mean to trade them with Bazaar Trader or Puca's Mischief. I'll tag you when I make mine.

Rant on Horror, Carnage, and Annihilation. All are Rakdos.

Pheardemons So I've been thinking about this the last few days and i have some ideas for the Seven Deadly Sins Build. I still enjoy the idea of Mardu, but instead of posting a build that has the 7DS as a theme, how about a punishment deck for them? Like for Greed, you punsih players for drawing or tapping Mana, or Lust/Envy, you punish players for taking your creatures by causing burn with a donation. I think Grixis would work for this as well as it gives you access to donation Puca's Mischief or even Bazaar Trader

When you take a creature with Act of Treason or Mark of Mutiny you "gain control" of the card according to the text. Then when you activate Bazaar Trader, you target yourself, giving yourself permanent control of the creature. It seems redundant but the ability of Bazaar Trader negates having to give it back.

Neat, but how exactly does Bazaar Trader and Act of Treason/Mark of Mutiny allow you to permanently keep creatures?

As far as chaos goes, Eye of the Storm, Knowledge Pool, Possibility Storm, Puca's Mischief, Grip of Chaos come to mind.

Donate/Bazaar Trader is a way to gift things without zedru in play

If you like degenerate combos, the first two I listed have a really weird interaction with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir that results in that you can use knowledge pool and eye of the storm but when an opponent has their spell exiled due to the triggered ability, they are not allowed to cast any of the spells (including the one that just got exiled). I can explain how it works in more detail if you want but figured i'd mention it.

Perplexing Chimera makes things weird

It's not so much as chaos or group hug, but giving away Illusions of Grandeur and forcing them to deal with the leaves play trigger is something i've seen zedru decks do.
