Gidgetimer on Kamigawa flip cards - state ...

6 days ago

There are two distinct ways the cards can flip. Most have a triggered ability of some sort such as Akki Lavarunner (triggered abilities start with "when", "whenever", or "at"). Some have an activated, like Budoka Gardener, that flips it if something is true at the end of the ability's resolution. Either way both types of abilities go on the stack and can be responded to. The only thing you can't do is try to do something in the middle of the activated ability. Like you can't allow Orochi Eggwatcher's ability to make a token and then try to Chandra's Fury to keep it from flipping.

Oh, that is fine, if it your challenge to run every card that gives you more land drops <4 mana, even the bad one, you gotta runthe following though if that is your reasoning Walking Atlas, Broken Bond, Swell of Growth, Budoka Gardener, Elvish Pioneer, Krosan Wayfarer, Llanowar Scout, Loam Dweller, Manabond, Skyshroud Ranger, and Swell of Growth.

+1 from me definitely. I like seeing all the dif Tatyova decks

If you're looking for more ways to drop lands and trigger her gain 1 draw 1 ability: there's Sakura-Tribe Scout, Budoka Gardener, etc. Most of them are cheap $ but some aren't (Azusa, Lost but Seeking)

For merfolk ideas I'd check out edhrec.com. Look for her and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca for sure

For generic good stuff please check out my rashmi deck and give 'er a +1! Cheers!

Looks good man. Here's some card suggestions, mostly on the cheap:

Oblation - shuffle opponents commanders, or whatever else

Swiftfoot Boots - your commander will be a removal target, give him hexproof

Sol Ring - Every EDH deck should have this card

Illusionist's Bracers - Every time you activate your commanders abilities, this gives you the same affect a second time

Keen Sense / Snake Umbra - These pair with your commanders' Lightning Bolt ability. Each time you bolt, you draw

Basilisk Collar - This also works with the bolt ability. Turns the bolt into "Destroy target creature, gain 3 life"

Oblivion Ring - solid catch-all removal

Gratuitous Violence - Double the damage of your bolt ability and the damage of your creatures

Temur Sabertooth - If you have 12 lands, your commander, and this guy in play you get infinite mana, meaning you win the game.

Rampaging Baloths - one of the best landfall guys

Mina and Denn, Wildborn - Play extra lands, gives trample to creatures, and lets you return lands to activate landfall more

Darien, King of Kjeldor - just an awesome white bomb I ran across

Angel of Serenity - Kill everybody's commander, or temporarily remove any other threatening creature

Acidic Slime - solid removal that serves double duty

Harmonize - great green draw spell

Grow from the Ashes, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Nissa's Renewal, Peregrination, Untamed Wilds - all solid pieces of ramp. Your 2 CMC ramping elves are pretty slow and weak to removal/board wipes. Plus, using land ramp rather than creature ramp increases your commander's utility when it comes into play and makes getting that infinite mana combo easier. With infinite mana, you win the game if your commander is out and no one can remove it at instant speed.

Some of the weaker cards that I'd suggest removing: Akroan Hoplite, Polis Crusher, Relentless Raptor, Sylvan Primordial (this card is banned in EDH), Budoka Gardener, Quirion Elves, Skyshroud Elf, Sylvan Caryatid.

Cloudstone Curio + Retreat to Coralhelm + Budoka Gardener / Llanowar Scout / Walking Atlas + a land to draw whole deck and win with Laboratory Maniac (which is missing atm) / Sunscorched Desert to kill all opponents. Alternatively you can use Words of Wind to bounce your opponents permanents.

Ghostly Flicker + Peregrine Drake + Archaeomancer / Eternal Witness for infinite mana which can lead to a kill with Blue Sun's Zenith or pumping lands with Kamahl, Fist of Krosa .

Gain ridiculous amount of turns with Walk the Aeons + Crucible of Worlds and cards that allow you to play extra land drops.

These are the main lines. You can also do shenanigans with Trade Routes to draw lots of cards.

Let me know if you test this build or a build of your own!

Haha! Cool deck!

I think you will definitely want Budoka Gardener / Dokai, Weaver of Life, maybe Elvish Pioneer or Gaea's Touch, and Sakura-Tribe Scout, Skyshroud Ranger, and Terrain Generator can all be considered over or with your Llanowar Scout.

Eternity Vessel might be good to help you last for ever in the late game.

Hope some of this helps!

joebreaux Budoka Gardener isn't too bad, honestly. And it is a bit cheaper than Mul Daya for sure. Maybe use it to take up that spot left open by the Titan?

Thanks untraceablez. I should've checked the ban list, duh.What do you think about Budoka Gardener instead of Oracle of Mul Daya? Seems like it would be better earlier and later.
