Brain in a Jar Discussion

BlueScope on What does Riptide Replicator summon ...

For reference, you could do this with Mairsil and only one additional card if you cage that card and activate its ability, such as Brain in a Jar or Lux Cannon. If you have to do it all on the same turn, Gemstone Array delivers without tapping it. It looks like Mairsil is actually pretty great to build around charge counters, seeing as there are quite a number of options.

That is accurate. Split cards now have a combined CMC when not on the stack to prevent split card costs being cheated by things like Brain in a Jar

Oops I missed it, it was Brain in a Jar.

Since you have Furnace of Rath, I'd try throwing in Dictate of the Twin Gods (which you can flash in before your turn) or Gratuitous Violence. Both help you stack some damage on easy.

Smash to Smithereens will help with pesky artifacts and ping someone at the same time.

Magmatic Force is constant damage on your turn and removal on opponent's upkeeps.

Brain in a Jar could do something cool, particularly at 3 and 4 drop.

A few more storm spells could be interesting Grapeshot, Haze of Rage, and Volcanic Awakening could be fun to try out.

Hello all. I'm here to eat.. er.. pick your brains about fun support cards to throw in with a zombie build. Doesn't have to be top notch. I'm thinking along the lines of Cellar Door , Brain in a Jar , and Jar of Eyeballs .

What kind of spells can you think of that would be fun to cast on a halloween night of spooky spell casting?

(This is for AINT NO PARTY like an UNDEAD party... -casual play-)

I would recommend finding Instants that put creatures on the battlefield instead of Fleshwrither or Sorceries that do it as there are ways to cast Sorceries at Instant speed, such as Brain in a Jar

Not much else but Brain in a Jar - bad here. Sunset Pyramid might not be too bad but slow. Witches' Eye - slow and buts a creature out of attacking... Naya isn't much for mass top deck manipulation.

Awesome! I'm glad to hear it played well. I'll send you a link to this deck. I'm kind of at a standstill with it though and am having issues tweaking it to my liking. I added Brain in a Jar to get a few free plays.Brain Damage [HOU]
