Contagion Engine


When Contagion Engine enters the battlefield, put a -1/-1 counter on each creature target player controls.

, : Proliferate, then proliferate again. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there. Then do it again.)

Contagion Engine Discussion

Crazytom1313 Contagion Engine is definitely one of the cards that are high on the list of potential includes. Deepglow Skate is another card that has a similar function that is very high on that list as well. I currently don't have either of those cards since I really like each card in the list for specific reasons, and I want to play some games before I make anymore changes (waiting on some cards to complete the deck). However, it's very likely that I might cut a sweeper or counterspell to make room for at least one of those cards. I'm going to create a maybe board and add Contagion Engine to it. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'll have to Emulate Judge Level Stoopid on this matter:

606.5. A loyalty ability with a negative loyalty cost can’t be activated unless the permanent has at least that many loyalty counters on it.

Previously, I read if that method is used to get an Emblem, & such a Walker is at 0 Loyalty; dead it goes. No Emblem Obtained. Has this since been changed, even with the Emblem restriction? Inquiring Minds wish to know...

I had a 4th idea for copying Artifice; though I dunno if I should even put Contagion Engine in there as a 4th option.

That said, I dun suppose I should keep Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast & cut Saheeli, Sublime Artificer (I'll try not to make such crap nicknames for a logical period of time from here, but it won't be easy; I'm experimenting such things like its nothing; & is unhelpable.)

That said, I obviously won't put in Aminatou, the Fateshifter based on such ideas. Also, uh... 0-o||| Bee In your Bonnet? Ashiok, Dream Render is capable of ending Library Search for your opponents, & it's only Loyalty ability is at least, the better half of Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver 's Ult. How much Smallfry/Zako can change an opinion Left & Right alot? XD

All that set, I suppose I'll cut Saheeli from here. Actually, now I think about this; I think I've a new wincon in case I don't win w/ Najeela; Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Urza's Ruinous Blast . If your opinion about Abilities requiring an exact amount of Loyalty needed equal to the Walker in Question's ability (In this case; an ultimate.). Would the ability be used as if it were any Loyalty Ability; be it that either the full effect occurs before suicide (This also goes for Emblem ideas.)? I'm... unsure about this. I dunno about such an idea, SP3CTR3_chelts, but if this is truly allowed from even the idea of Comprehensible Rulings always up to date via set after set, I can tell you, Nicol Bolas at his most powerful & combined w/ Urza's Universe-Level Destruction (Maybe even higher since Dominaria is considered as the Primary Plane of Existence.), equals GG.

I'll be waiting for now BTW. Got some crap to watch...

Looks great, I built a Vorel deck that’s similar and love it. Maybe consider Contagion Engine , Everflowing Chalice and Kalonian Hydra

Alright I'ma break this up into a couple parts. First let me say that I like the concept of the deck! It's pretty cool, and Mowu is a bad ass! Next a lot of these suggestions are going to be meta dependent so keep that in mind. Lastly I think you're too focused on equipment in a color that doesn't do equipment very well... I think you should play some more enchantments as Green does enchantments well! I also think that you should lean into the fact that Green is the best color for ramp, and that makes cards like Strata Scythe / Blanchwood Armor / Blackblade Reforged stupid good.

Here are some cards I think you DESPERATELY need to put into the deck as they are staples or provide a LOT of value.

Contagion Engine gives your commander 4 counters. I also noticed that you have a lot of creature tutors, but I'm not sure what you're tutoring for.

Deepglow Skate is in my Vorel of the Hull Clade deck and right now only have the one. Contagion Engine would be nice just don't have as yet

Contagion Engine Uhm does this need explanation, Contagion Clasp Uhm does this need explanation either, Karn's Bastion(from war of the spark0 its contagion engine thats tougher to remove, Flux Channeler(from war of the spark) this is an amazing new card, Inexorable Tide proliferate on every spell is ridiculous, Plaguemaw Beast sac outlet that proliferates (sacrificing toothy for value), Viral Drake the best proliferation mana sync that can be overused with out tapping like the contagion engine/clasp or Karn's Bastion, Thrummingbird a bit tougher to get it off but another decent proliferate card. Doubling Season would be good as well but better if you had tokens as well... so id keep that out plus you'd lose it when inevitably play Bane of Progress because we all know you love that card XD also Rogue's Passage is great for this to make your big boys unblockable
