Strain on the Heartstrings

Enchantment - Aura Curse

Enchant player

At the beginning of enchanted player's turn, that player chooses one -

  • Until enchanted player's next turn, creatures enchanted player controls lose all abilities and have base power and toughness 1/1

  • Each of enchanted player's opponents puts two +1/+1 counter on each creature they control.

  • Until enchanted player's next turn, creatures your opponents cast gain haste and double strike until the beginning of the next end step.

  • Tap all creatures enchanted player controls.


If we did this challenge with Captive Audience templates, the above card would be as follows:

Strain on the Heartstrings

Enchantment

Strain on the Heartstrings enters the battlefield under the control of an opponent of your choice.

At the beginning of your upkeep, choose one:

  • Until your next turn, creatures you control lose all abilities and have base power and toughness 1/1

  • Each of your opponents puts two +1/+1 counter on each creature they control.

  • Until your next turn, creatures your opponents cast gain haste and double strike until the beginning of the next end step.

  • Tap all creatures you control.


I think I like the second template better because it's not as clunky. Though it does lose the curse subtype which I understand was part of the appeal.

I mean, for what Captive Audience does, the cost is fairly limited. You could get all sorts of crazy with a Selesnya curse and they often are tied heavily with flavor. If I understand you, you want something that would turn you into "A Gnarled Old Tree" of sorts, extending your life but in a cruel and unhelpful way? Yea, Selesnya is a difficult one. No one said how many effects the curse must have. 3-4 is just what our brains tell us to do, because we like options. Try something most simple perhaps Zui? Yes Tim, I usually have to wait till a art worthy of the cards rolls through but ill stay on it.

A Rakdos enchantment like Captive Audience that gives your opponents hard choices.

There are several aristocrat cards that you might consider. Cruel Celebrant , and Midnight Reaper for example. Captive Audience would also work well in this deck, I think.

ClockworkSwordfish those are indeed some spicy deals, I particularly like Temporal Extortion , Stronghold Gambit and Choice of Damnations

I did look at Captive Audience and I like it but I took it out to make way for other deals. It is firmly in the maybeboard though.
