Fritzn on Unblockable (temporary) and myriad

2 days ago

So, if in my main phase, I use the secondary ability of Rogue's Passage to make a creature unblockable, during my main phase, while that creature is equipped with Blade of Selves ie myriad, are the tokens created from myriad considered unblockable as well??

My viewpoint sees the effect as basically "written" onto the card, for the turn, and would then carry over to the tokens.

Last_Laugh hmm very interesting I will consider Blade of Selves cuz that is wild however I'll wait till I've playtested it a bit more to see if I want to add things that will win more or if its in lign with my play groups power.. Grateful Apparition is a good call tho thanks! Do you see anything I should remove? The cuts are the most difficult for me to see\make.

Blade of Selves is 18x +1+1 counters when equipped to Reyhan in a 4 player game. This is a commander damage kill as early as turn 3. T1 Sol Ring into Blade, T2 Reyhan, T3 equip, swing, and murder someone. Spark Double is also great here... replace your counters twice with 2 Reyhans.

Have you considered moving Atraxa to the 99 and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan / Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as the commanders? Atraxa is great for harder to get counters like loyalty, infect, and charge counters but a single proliferate is kinda slow for dedicated +1+1 counters.

Ishai/Reyhan draw less hate, are easier on early mana, are far more resilient due to Reyhan moving counters, and they're far more explosive with those counters.

If you do make the switch, add Blade of Selves and Rite of Replication . Blade is 18x +1+1 counters in a 4 player game (or a turn 3 commander damage kill- t1 Sol Ring into Blade, t2 Reyhan, t3 equip, swing, and murder. Rite kicked is 90x +1+1 counters. These aren't even counting things like Corpsejack Menace, Doubling Season, or Hardened Scales etc. (I.e. Doubling Season alone w/ kicked Rite is 1320 counters!).

Okay, back to the Sunstone experiment. Blade of Selves performed admirably, but both times I drew it tonight, I would have been better served with the Sunstone. I would have won the second game straight up with the Sunstone online. So we'll shift things back and put the Blade on the maybe board.

Thanks to thecowlevel, I've decided to put the Sunstone experiment on hold and add the Blade of Selves to the offensive punch of the deck. Let's make even more bears.

Blade of Selves Can be crazy with Ayula. When equipped to Ayula and swung with, it triggers her ability once for every player excluding yourself (3 times if all 4 players are alive). The copies of Ayula that enter the battlefield must be put into the graveyard due to the legend rule but they still count as bear's entering the battlefield.

Hardened Scales Has really good synergy with Ayula as well.

Also if you feel your Ayula is being destroyed by too many single target spells or abilities adding more cards like Swiftfoot Boots or Champion's Helm could help protect her.

Lastly have you considered cards like Metallic Mimic ? they can be declared as bears and can be a good way to add more bear's to your deck if you feel like you need more to trigger Ayula.

You're missing out on a key aspect of Reyhan's ability... legendary rule abuse.

Blade of Selves on Reyhan is 18x +1+1 counters in a 4 player game. 2 Reyhan die to the legendary rule and those 6 counters are seen and replaced by all 3 Reyhan. This can be a commander damage kill as early as turn 3. T1 Sol Ring into Blade, t2 Reyhan, t3 swing and kill.

Rite of Replication kicked is 90x +1+1 counters. (15 counters x 6 Reyhan)

Spark Double is also a stud here so you can replace counters twice.

Here's a few links to help. These are the top 3 Reyhan/Ishai decks on this site. They're all a bit different so you should be able to pull ideas from all 3.
