Child of Alara Discussion

My commander is just going to be Child of Alara because it provides a good backup if hulk somehow doesn't work.

My combo is this:1. get Protean Hulk in play.

  1. Have it die blocking some guy's creature.

  2. Get the dies trigger and go find Karmic Guide and Viscera Seer.

  3. Karmic Guide reanimates Protean Hulk, which then gets sacrificed to Viscera Seer.

  4. using the trigger, go and get Body Double, which enters as a copy of Protean Hulk

  5. Sac the Body Double, which goes and gets Reveillark.

  6. Sac the Karmic Guide, then sac Reveillark, which gets back Karmic Guide and Body Double, which copies Protean Hulk, and the Karmic Guide reanimates Reveillark.

  7. Now simply repeat the following:

8A. sac Karmic Guide, then Body Double, which goes and gets any creature in your deck.

8B. sacrifice the Reveillark, which brings back the other two, which brings back Reveillark

  1. Get all the disrupting creatures, then get Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Pestermite and swing for infinity squared.

I feel like if you're just doing 5-C superfriends, Karona, the False God is better, or even Child of Alara or Progenitus. None of them are really inherent to the walkers, anyway. If only it were possible to do a 5-c Partner deck..

I'm currently working on shoring up my Commander Decks and posting them on this site, which has been quite the project. I currently have one built of all ten "Wedges" - one from each of the Shards of Alara, and one from each of the Clans of Tarkir. I might build a few more Commander decks, like one themed around Uril, the Miststalker because I love "Enchantress" decks and he is the Legendary Beast of Enchantresses, or a five-colored Sliver Overlord or Child of Alara or Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck (maybe all three, knowing me). After I finish those, I'm going to rebuild some of my favorite decks (most of them Legacy-legal, but some of them Modern-legal) from my twenty years spent playing the game. Fallen Angel, Yavimaya Enchantress, Terravore, Pestilence, Mogg Maniac, and Traumatize are just some of the stars of those decks, so wait and see what I build!

I like the idea of using this to track what I'm up to in regards to the game, so I'll likely be "blogging" like this from time to time.

You can use Pharika, God of Affliction to exile Child of Alara from your Graveyard and then put it back in the Command zone as replacement effect.

Dude, you need High Market. Child of Alara becomes a board-wipe that's always at your fingertips when you need it. I saw someone play the child at my game store and everyone let it resolve. He sac'd it and blew up the board to gain one life. XD

mindfulvet on Child of Alara LTB effect

Need a clarification on a LTB effect. Scenario:

Child of Alara on the battlefield, controller casts a second Child of Alara. What happens? When does the controller decide to enforce the legendary rule? Does the 2nd Child of Alara survive or does the 1st Child of Alara destroy it when it goes to the graveyard? (Basically, is the 2nd Child of Alara still a spell when I destroy the 1st?)

Cessation never dies when Child of Alara wipes the board, just comes back to hand to enchant whatever creature an opponent plays again.

@RitchieRich757 I think Child of Alara is a fun suggestion/possibility to consider but i don't think i will use him here. Thanks for the suggestion though!

@PickleNutz Thanks for the nod of appreciation and the tips! Ill do some digging into tutor cards/ways to cast some of the heavier mana costing cards in the deck.
