Blood Funnel


Noncreature spells you cast cost less to cast.

Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, counter that spell unless you sacrifice a creature.

With Blood Funnel I'm kinda confused over the wording. Is this a choice, so I can choose to sac a creature or is it a mandatory effect? So that I have to sac a creature I control.

I always thought Bloodghast would make a nice brew with Blood Funnel and Dark Petition and a toolbox of 1-ofs to solve any situation.

To the original question - no. March affects artifacts on the battlefield only. On the stack, for Blood Funnel purposes, Ichor Wellspring is a non-creature artifact. If you sac a creature, it will resolve and be a 2/2 artifact creature due to March.

For the second one - yes, if no-one choose to stop it, it would be a loop.
For the final one - yes, that is how it would work.

First interaction:

Yes, this would work--at least in theory.

Let's look at the stack:

  1. You cast Ichor Wellspring, this would trigger Blood Funnel's counter ability, except you sacrifice your Mycosynth Wellspring to nullify the ability.

  2. Mycosynth Wellspring's death puts two new abilities on the stack: Pia's Revolution's recursion ability and Mycosynth Wellspring's tutor ability. Both of these will resolve, so it does not really matter what order you place them on the stack.

  3. The abilities from #2 resolve. If your opponent does not take the 3 damage, you will be allowed to return Mycosynth Wellspring to your hand.

  4. Ichor Wellspring resolves and enters the battlefield. It is now a creature due to March of the Machines.

  5. You can repeat steps 1-4 infinitely (alternating which Wellspring is sacrificed).

Would it work in reality? Almost certainty not. Three damage to stop an infinite combo is inconsequential--there's no way an opponent will let you pull this off. If you've already gotten them to 3 or less life, then you probably have better ways to win, and do not need to mess around with somewhat complicated combos.

For your second question, that is correct. If countered, they never enter the battlefield, and cannot cause ETB triggers.

I just realized this question makes no sense. Since I can't close this until answered, here is my new question.

Does this interaction work?

I have Blood Funnel, March of the Machines and Pia's Revolution on my side of the battlefield.

I can now cast spells such as Ichor Wellspring for 0. But by casting it I must sacrifice an animated artifact on the battlefield now, such as a Mycosynth Wellspring. Asuming no one pays Pia's Revolutions cost, I can now endlessly loop these 2 wellsprings forever?

And if I ever have no creatures to sacrifice, no ETB triggers can happen, since they are countered and never enter the battlefield.

If both Blood Funnel and March of the Machines are on the battlefield, are non-creature artifacts I summon such as Ichor Wellspring considered creature spells and countered?

Cut deathreap ritual it's not a guaranteed draw, Phyrexian Arena is just better. Cut Chromatic lantern, its only good in 3 color+ decks; in this deck it's a wasted card slot.

Cut Primal Vigor, and just add Doubling Season as it doubles the amount of spore counters put on your fungus every turn.

Cut Greener Pastures, it just helps your opponents as much as you.

Cut Strength In Numbers, in this deck you are either going to combo out or swing wide with a bunch of dudes.

Cut Bile Blight and run either Black Sun's Zenith or Toxic Deluge I prefer the latter but it's on you.

Cut Evolutionary Leap, you don't have many creatures you make tokens.

Cut Life And Limb, because its gonna feel real bad when Lindsy WOGs your lands away.

Cut Costly Plunder

Cut Sprout Swarm, your commander does that for 1 mana less

Cut a tutor, I don't care which one and replace it with Natural Order to tutor up a Craterhoof Behemoth(yes you need one of these) for game.

Cards you NEED to add:

Here are some cards worth looking at, not nessecarily SHOULD go in:

Blood Funnel, Bontu the Glorified, Catacomb Sifter, Champion of Stray Souls**, and Pawn of Ulamog

dhearne04 If you took 5 seconds to actually google "Mishra EDH" you would see that there is a combo with cards like Possibility Storm, Ice Cave, & Blood Funnel.

Although I don't use all of the combo cards he is still in there because of the combo with Possibility Storm & because he is a card that I like.
