StopShot on Turn 1 Lotus Field?

3 days ago

I might be reading this wrong, but if I understand it correctly, if I start the game with a Gemstone Caverns turn 0, or exile a Simian Spirit Guide for , or crack a Lotus Petal for one mana to cast Amulet of Vigor , and then play Lotus Field as my land for turn, would I be able to tap the Lotus Field for mana before I sacrifice it to it's ETB? If so that's a janky turn 1 Black Lotus in Modern/Legacy.

Your deck can only deal 16 damage (17 rounded down). The original combo played a Mountain and cracked a Black Lotus for to pay for Channel exchanging 19 life for 19 mana. This left you with floating to deal 20 damage with Fireball .

Finally a deck within my budget! Have you considered adding some better manna gain? I think Black Lotus could go a long way here.

I really love the idea of this deck! Creative builds like this are so much fun. :D

A couple thoughts:

I can see how Leveler and Shared Fate work together — you get to play from their library, but you no longer have a library for them to play from, so they never draw a card. However, I don't believe that Timesifter works with this combo, since it has each player exile the top card of their library, not draw it. In this case, Shared Fate's replacement effect won't occur, so you'll exile your top card (none) and they'll always win, taking all the turns.

I'm also concerned that you won't be able to reliably cast their cards for a few turns. Other than Vesuva copying their lands and Black Lotus , your own deck doesn't have any mana-fixing, so you'll be mostly relying on playing their own lands to get the colors you need.

Still a fun deck. +1 from me!

For context:

I design for concept. I push envelopes and reach for the impossible. It's what I do. The finished product is not going to be anywhere near my inception point and I'm fine with that. Here's a card I designed back in 1994:

I played this card in a proxy league some 25 years ago. It absolutely warped the meta because I could counter crap like Channel , Dark Ritual , and Black Lotus , not to mention all the broken made-up cards everyone else was using. EVERYBODY wanted it and I was the only one who had it.

Then a year later Force of Will came out. The finished product is vastly different, better IMO. I'm happy I had the concept down.

Also, t1 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is more possible in vintage now.

t1: Swamp , Dark Ritual , Dark Ritual , Black Lotus , Lotus Petal , Demonic Tutor for Citadel, Vampiric Tutor for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , cast Citadel, cast emmy from the top.

Also, if you want to be more stylish:

t1: Underground Sea , Lion's Eye Diamond , Dark Ritual , Lotus Petal .

Cast Yawgmoth's Will from hand, responding with cracking LED for BBB, discarding Imperial Seal and citadel

Recast everything, saccing for mana

Cast Imperial Seal for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , and cast citadel, then cast Emmy
