Blood Funnel Discussion

CRUNCDAT on Mishra Stax Eggs ($800)

Hey mindcrank! Thank you so much for the comment! Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, I just saw it today. So the big thing with upgrading this list with no budget concessions is the quality of the eggs. Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt and Grim Monolith are all mana positive rocks which will make storming off easier. They can replace some of the weaker rocks in the list. If you want to include more answers with stuff like Force of Will and Cyclonic Rift the big thing is to consider removing Blood Funnel. While it's amazing for trying to go off with artifacts, it locks you out of playing almost anything but them. Ad Nauseam would be pretty helpful, especially if you've gotten some mileage out of Aetherflux Reservoir. Underworld Breach would be pretty strong once you've played and sacrificed a lot of rocks, and it would make Lion's Eye Diamond viable in the build.

That's about all I can think of right now. Hope your build goes well!

There's a promo of Brain Maggot that is absolutely disgusting and perverse, I think it'd be pretty cool.

In terms of extra cards, I'd suggest some legendary creatures from the Kamigawa blocks, not only is their art exactly what you're looking for, but some have the same theme as your deck. Here's the ones I would suggest:

Some extra weird cards that I've found in my journey's:

Overall, really cool deck theme! I'd put in an Underworld Dreams because it's pretty creepy and goes great with your theme +1

Oh yeah! and you should take out Jungle Hollow and Bloodfell Caves!

Interesting commander for sure. Not sure if it's necessary but Blood Funnel works great with your commander.

Magnanimous on What Are Some Of Your …

In rough order of how much I like them:

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Spreading Algae

Flagstones of Trokair and any sacrifice effect, like Smallpox , Elvish Reclaimer , and Crop Rotation .

In a similar vein, Brought Back and evoke spells like Shriekmaw and Mulldrifter .

Sundial of the Infinite + Glorious End or Pact of Negation effects. The Sundial can end the turn and counter the ability that would make you lose the game.

I recently saw a deck based around Haunted Dead that played Prized Amalgam + other graveyard shenanigans, Fiery Temper , and Elder Deep-Fiend in Pioneer, so that was pretty cool and synergistic although not a standard two card combo.

Young Pyromancer / Monastery Mentor / Goblinslide + Blood Funnel .

but you're not casting the 3rd Nyxborn Shieldmate for to bestow it, because Blood Funnel will not reduce the cost.

Ok, say I have a Nyxborn Shieldmate as a creature out enchanted by another Nyxborn Shieldmate, another creature enchanted by Necromancer's Magemark , and a Blood Funnel .

I cast another Nyxborn Shieldmate for W targeting either your already enchanted Nyxborn Shieldmate (both aura sheildmates become creatures) when you sacrifice the creature sheildmate for Blood Funnel .

Additionally, because the creature sheildmate was enchanted by an aura, it has Necromancer's Magemark raise dead effect returning it to my hand.

From this point I could cast the returned Nyxborn Shieldmate for W targeting one sheildmate, and sacrificing the other.

There would be other cards that work well with this like Athreos, God of Passage , Blood Artist , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Sigil of the Empty Throne , and my favorite Bitter Ordeal .

And I found this hiding: Bestow and Cost Modifications

I'm just making sure this part is correct: "So, by the time you get to applying Thalia, it’s a noncreature spell and will cost you 1 more. By the time you get to applying Heartless Summoning, it’s not a creature so you won’t get the discount."

If Thalia, Guardian of Thraben would increase the cost because it's a noncreature, then Blood Funnel should reduce it too, right?

I think I answered your question and brought it back around to my question in maybe too many words there lol.

theres a rules q&a section of the site for questions like these.

a creature with bestow is a creature when you cast it, and doesn't become an aura until its on the stack, which is after being cast and costs are paid. as such, Blood Funnel will not reduce the cost.

Kavle on Does this work the way …

So I was building a deck that is trying to use Necromancer's Magemark and bestow creatures for value. I started looking into cost reduction effects and found Starfeild Mystic, which seems awesome in the deck, but then I saw Blood Funnel .

So in doing some research into the bestow mechanic, found this page:

It states that if a card is cast for it's bestow cost it becomes an enchant aura, but if it's target becomes illegal (like dying or being exiled) it changes into an enchantment creature and resolves.

So my questions are if I cast a card for it's bestow cost will Blood Funnel reduce it's cost since it's being cast as an aura? And if so, when I cast a card for it's bestow cost, Blood Funnels sacrifice trigger will go onto the stack above the bestow card right? Which means if I sacrifice the creature it's targeting it will then just turn into a creature also right? If this works I think I might try an build some weird aristocrat style deck lol.
