Cauldron Haze


Choose any number of target creatures. Each of those creatures gains persist until end of turn. (When it's put into a graveyard from play, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to play under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

Cauldron Haze Discussion

Samuel-Frederick on Unimaginable Horror

SamuelMOsborne, if you want to splash for Melira, there are a couple of changes I'd change. You could drop the Slips or Weights for Melira, the amount of cheap removal in the deck should be able to keep up without them, and if you're running the Engine as well that will pick up the slack in the late game.

However, you can also drop the Undying Evil, and swap them out for Cauldron Haze. It's any number of creatures so it's wrath protection, and if Melira is on the field they won't get the counters and you can cast another on the same creatures later on. There is also the slower version, Cauldron of Souls, depending on what sort of speed you'd like.

Not at all, thank you for making this. I had no idea there were such amazing Persist spells like Heartmender, Cauldron Haze and Cauldron of Souls. I totally want to experiment with them now.

Mind Unbound is really good draw that can get unmanageable.

Blowfly Infestation and Crumbling Ashes are both great cards, one thing dies, the rest will follow.

Cauldron Haze and Cauldron of Souls are great wipe protection. Their evil cousin Pyrrhic Revival is amazing.

I may exchange Icy Blast for Gigadrowse. But i am not sure about Cauldron Haze, because it doesn't have any usable effect without the willbreaker. I thaught that Drown in Sorrow may be useful against fast Weenie Decks, but ...

In Blue, Gigadrowse is your prime utility spell with Willbreaker. It combos best with Cauldron Haze though.

Please link all cards in your question: Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, Viscera Seer, Cauldron Haze

Your random 1/1 creature will enter the battlefield with a -1/-1 counter on it. This means that when state-based actions are checked, Anafenza will put a trigger on the stack and your 0/0 creature will be put into your graveyard. Your creature will die, but it will manage to put a +1/+1 counter on your Seer.

Restless Apparition will work with her nicely. Replaces itself and you still get the Token. Plus it's a pseudo-shade.

You're running low CMC, so not sure you'll want to go with Deathpact Angel. Same idea, replaces itself with a White/Black token, gives you a White Token, and then can be brought back on your next turn.

Westvale Abbey  Flip also works late game. If you don't need the creatures for Teysa there's a nice Demon on the other side.

Cauldron Haze, pretty explanatory there for just 2 mana.

Cauldron Haze Doesn't let a creature go infinite like the Redcap. As soon as it dies and comes back into play, it 'forgets' that it ever had persist. This is true for any temporary ability placed on a creature that leaves play and comes back, either by death or by flicker. It works just like +1/+1 counters, they don't persist either.

As per Wizard's rules: If a nontoken creature that gains persist this way is put into a graveyard, that card will be returned to the battlefield with a -1/-1 counter on it. However, because its a new object with no relation to its previous existence, that permanent will not have persist.
