Book of Rass Discussion

DrukenReaps on Mageta the lion

1 week ago

So the biggest issue with running Mageta is that he wants you to discard 2 cards to use his ability. This is a problem in white because your consistent card draw is limited. You'll want to dedicate a large portion of your deck to card draw, I'd say around 15 cards. Since you are discarding and blowing shit up you might have a subtheme of reanimation. People usually think of that as black but it is in white's wheelhouse too. You can combine it with the indestructible stuff and just call it protection, maybe 10 cards?

Here is every white card that can draw, I'll list some of the specific ones I like. Draw in White

Well of Lost Dreams, Sram, Senior Edificer, Smuggler's Copter, Skullclamp, Mind's Eye, Mind Stone, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Endbringer, Dawn of Hope, Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Book of Rass and Alms Collector.

Suns_Champion on Heliod, God of Combo Damage

1 week ago

Honestly friend I don't have much to say about this list, it is a solid mono-white combo, which are two things I'm not particularly skilled with.

You might consider adding some equipment tutors for your backup combos. Steelshaper's Gift and Open the Armory.

Endless Atlas seems an obvious inclusion. Tome of Legends is at least one draw and probably two, and if you can get Heliod to attack it'll be a card a turn.

With all the lifegain I'd consider Well of Lost Dreams or even Book of Rass for some repeatable draw.

I think you could cut Cloudshift for Vedalken Archmage . If you're looking for budget options, I like cards like Greed , Book of Rass would work well being a 5-color deck, Kumena's Awakening is worth a shot, Guardian Project , Beast Whisperer as just a few. I like to run about 10 card draw spells in my decks. If you have Rhystic Study , throw it in. I would probably cut some of your copying effects to add some card draw. I don't know how important cards like Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host are to your strategy, though.

A thought I had too was to replace Trash for Treasure with something more repeatable, like Goblin Welder .

This is very awesome, but I worry about being overloaded with products, that WotC may be focusing on quantity rather than quality; however, I shall make an effort to remain optimistic about it.

On a more positive note, I am very pleased to learn that there shall be a great number of reprints, since there are many cards that I feel need to be reprinted, and my most desired reprints are Book of Rass , Akroma's Memorial , Vedalken Orrery , Rhystic Study , and Reflecting Pool , but some other reprints that would be nice are Dromar, the Banisher , Undermine , Recoil , Fire Covenant , Fungal Shambler , and Tsabo Tavoc . I am certain that I shall remember more cards as time passes, so I shall mention them, here.

Also, is that a new incarnation of Baron Sengir? Yes, finally! I am certain that many long-time players have been waiting for years for this, and I know that I am one of those players; I have very high expectations for that card, since a character of his iconic status deserves nothing less than the best.

Will Commander Collection replace Signature Spellbook? I certainly hope not, since only two of those have been released thus far, and there are still many more characters who have not yet received their own.

Neat theme! You might like these: Book of Rass , Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII , Stream Hopper / Jump (hop on pop), Insurrection / Mindslaver (if i ran the zoo)

DemonDragonJ on Will Book of Rass Ever ...

Rabid_Wombat, WotC reprinted Greed , so I believe that Book of Rass is eligible for a reprint, as well.

Also, its high mana cost is to balance out the fact that it is colorless, and, thus, can be put into any deck.

DemonDragonJ on Will Book of Rass Ever ...

I think that Book of Rass is an awesome card that deserves to be reprinted, as it is essentially a colorless version of Greed , which is obviously an awesome card. I feel that the book would look awesome in the new card frame with new artwork and flavor text, so I do hope that WotC reprints it, eventually.

What does everyone else say about this? Will WotC ever reprint Book of Rass ?

bushido_man96 on Arcane Encyclopedia or Arcane Signet?

4 months ago

Book of Rass is better than Arcane Encyclopedia . Arcane Encyclopedia is probably only decent card draw in a Boros deck. And even then, Book of Rass is still better, even at 6 CMC.
