Blade Splicer Discussion

xyr0s on Heaven on the roam. (Weenie hatebears)

1 week ago

A bit of a mash-up of different strategies here. Both a long controlling one, with Emeria, The Sky Ruin and an attempt at a human/white weenie aggro. Neither probably has enough power behind it to win, although with the amount of removal, you might win out of that sometimes (not very often, but sometimes).

If you want to get something out of emeria, you need easier access to plains. Doesn't even need to be basic plains, so you could splash a color, if you wanted. Green, perhaps, for Renegade Rallier - it brings back fetchlands from your GY, and you get to drop plains after plains, until you have those 7 lands. Of course, searching for anything is hard to do with Leonin Arbiter around, so that one should probably go.

Or you could go for more aggro/death & taxes. Some more creatures at 3 mana would make your Aether Vials a lot better - currently you just run out of sensible things to use them for, and they are a horrible topdeck later in the game.

You have some cards that probably should have been in the sideboard: Grand Abolisher and Linvala, Keeper of Silence. Neither of them really do all that much for you in all games, but in some match-ups, they are game breaking. Besides, with Aether Vial you already have all the ways you could want to play around counterspells. Instead, try either Flickerwisp for those tempo-plays, or Blade Splicer.

PrimeEpoch on State-based action fun with restoration ...

2 weeks ago

So the question is if Restoration Angel targets a creature token like one made by Blade Splicer, would the token cease to exist? I mean it seems illogical, but the rules seem to point to the token surviving. Hear me out.

704.4. Unlike triggered abilities, state-based actions pay no attention to what happens during the resolution of a spell or ability

704.5. The state-based actions are as follows:

704.5d If a token is in a zone other than the battlefield, it ceases to exist.

So, if state-based actions are only checked after the resolution of the ability, the token would survive right? If it does, it'll become a new object so it seems odd.

sylvannos on Which tokens to bring

I like making my own tokens using tip cards from booster packs. If you using rubbing alcohol or acetone (acetone works easier), you can then use a rag to wip/scrub the ink off the tip cards. Then, you draw your token using permanent markers.

This is a really inexpensive, yet personal, way to get those really obscure tokens.

The other one I noticed missing from your collection that are common in Modern (not already mentioned) are 3/3 Beast tokens (from cards like Beast Within, Thragtusk), 3/3 Golems (Blade Splicer, Precursor Golem), 5/5 Demon (Skirsdag High Priest), and 1/1 Soldiers (Timely Reinforcements, Elspeth, Sun's Champion). We'll probably also see more 1/1 merfolk tokens since Rivals of Ixalan added a few.

JaceTheSwagSculptor on Advice on my White Section

1 month ago

I'm looking for advice on the last white rare slot in my cube. Currently I have Elspeth Tirel there as a placeholder. Idk if she is the best option, but she ended up going in after testing Stoneforge Mystic with little success.

My cube is limited to Zendikar block through Return to Ravnica block and M11 block through M14 block. The cards currently in my white section are...

After looking up cards in the aforementioned sets I found that the other options didn't seem too promising, but hopefully I am just missing something. I know it may be difficult to give advice without playing my cube, however I am hoping prior experience with the suggested card will compensate.

I think you need more actual token producers. So far you have Voice (conditional), Ajani (conditional), Charm (conditional), Advent (expensive), and Grove (extremely expensive and should probably be cut). Spectral Procession, seconding Blade Splicer, potentially Legion's Landing  Flip or even Nissa, Voice of Zendikar. To cut I'd look at your 4 drops, they are quite slow at times. I used to play a similar deck in Standard.

Populate is an interesting token mechanic. Add some Druid's Deliverance and Sundering Growth for sideboard if you like. Also, Blade Splicer is a solid main deck option

OOBS on Eldrazi & Taxes

Oh, sorry yugo0075! I didn't see your comment. I think that that is certainly true, but I think the reason Kitesail Freebooter works well enough in humans is because it is a human - the creature type matters a great deal. It growing other creatures and getting larger itself with no added mana investment is the reason Kitesail Freebooter performs so well in that deck. While I know that you suggest it in addition to Tidehollow Sculler, the difference between the two is rather great in this build. Tidehollow Sculler can be flickered in response to its ETB trigger to permanently exile something from your opponent's hand and then take something else afterwards normally, meaning that in the late game you can milk value from it, something that you can't really do with Kitesail Freebooter. Tidehollow also has a different, more broken way the card is structured/worded. If I play Tidehollow Sculler and my opponent wants to remove it in response to the ETB, whatever I select from their hand gets permanently exiled because the leave the battlefield trigger is triggered before the card is exiled. With Kitesail Freebooter, you can kill it in response and all you get to do is look at their hand. Lastly, and probably most importantly, Tidehollow Sculler hits all nonlands, so creatures are getting hit as well which is super important, while Kitesail is limited being a Duress on a stick. What I like out of the sideboard for these matchups is the Sin Collector which gives a similar, more permanent effect that is reusable with flickers (albeit doesn't deal with Lingering Souls as well or lower my curve). I have been considering putting another in the sideboard or moving it from the sideboard into the mainboard in place of the Blade Splicer. Thanks for the comments, let me know if I missed something!
