Curse of Inertia Discussion

chronomentro on How would this scenario play ...

4 months ago

The 3 cards involved are Merieke Ri Berit , Curse of Inertia , and Dauntless Aven . I control all 3 of these and it's my turn. Merieke Ri Berit is currently tapped and I have control of an opponent's creature. Curse of Inertia and Dauntless Aven are already in play, and I plan to attack with ONLY Dauntless Aven this turn. My opponent has 2 creatures able to block. Once I declare Dauntless Aven as an attacker there are 2 triggered abilities that I have to deal with; tap/untap target permanent, and, untap target creature I control. What I would LIKE to do is untap Merieke Ri Berit with 1 of these triggered abilities (destroying the opponents creature I control), then immediately tap Merieke Ri Berit taking control of 1 of my opponent's remaining 2 creatures...AND THEN use the 2nd triggered ability to untap Merieke Ri Berit AGAIN; destroying thAt creature; tap Merieke Ri Berit and take control of the opponents last creature. Opponent gets priority to play instants/activate abilities after each of my actions...opponent now has no blockers...combat damage step Dauntless Aven deals 2 damage...End of Combat. I don't think it works this way though bc the rules state that the abilities have to resolve before any player gets priority...so, the 2 triggered tap abilities have to be assigned targets, they resolve, THEN i would receive priority to use the activated ability of Merieke Ri Berit . We're noobs but quickly learning all these 'magic'al rules haha.. Just had to check with the real experts about this dynamic.. Thank You in advance for the help!

The more i look at this, the more i like it. I may have to build a hard board lockdown deck. From the Test plays I did, I found that the land lockdown was hard to deal with. So came up with a couple ideas to remedy that.

Turnabout - could be a valuable way to untap all your lands..

Curse of Inertia - because you are locking down the board, this might be a way to force players to attack other players.

Hidden Strings - I love this card for its ability to untap stuff. and if you can Cipher it onto a creature that can consistently get through, it give you a great way to unlock your side of the board

Sword of Feast and Famine - for the same reason as above, its a great way to untap all your lands each turn.

Unwinding Clock - is a great way to untap mana rocks, but would need alot more rocks to make it worth while i think.

What about Propaganda as a "you can't attack me"?

Or maybe some extra incentives by way of Curses? Curse of Bounty is nice, and Curse of Verbosity is too. I'd stay away from Curse of Inertia, though; the other players too often turned to me with the ability.

Ah, but I remember sneaking over a Curse of Echoes on a control player; locked him out on casting counter spells! That's more of a chaos card; I was just reliving old memories.

but what about King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, can i attack with him then use Curse of Inertia to untap him and inspire?

Yes. Curse of Inertia will trigger when you declare your attack and you'll be able to activate Merieke Ri Berit before blockers are declared. You will not be able to attack with the stolen creature even if you can give it haste, as you already declared attacks.

let's say i have a tapped Merieke Ri Berit, and it is my attack phase, can i attack with a creature then use Curse of Inertia to unTap merieke then steal a creature from an opponent?

Joumba on Zur, Brutal Controller

In a Zur deck, I always find that a good Nevermore or a Runed Halo can screw your opponent's commander, or general game if their deck is, like yours, based on their commander!

Also, Winds of Rath can become the end of many foes, but not your sweet sweet Zur. Need more protection on him? Diplomatic Immunity is for you! You plan to win with only zur attacking? Cathedral of War !

Now, here's what I think you should cut out ; Curse of the Bloody Tome, you don't play in graveyard and you have no milling win-con, so it's pretty meh. Since you just tuor anything anyway, I don't think you need a Dictate of Kruphix which can just help your opponent get back up. Playing both both Curse of Inertia and Ghostly Touch while you have a Aqueous Form is a waste of card slot, In my huble opinion.

Well, thats all, have a nice day and good luck mate!

TehGrief on Open the Vaults: Ruling Question

1 year ago

I have recently played a game of magic involving Open the Vaults and a series of curses and auras intended to enchant opponents creatures.

Now, here is where we ran into trouble; The spell effect reads "Return all artifact and enchantment cards from all graveyards to the battlefield under their owners' control.".

What I understand from this text is that whatever it is that I am returning must come into the battlefield under MY control; causes the curses to be attached to me, and the aura to one of my creatures.

Am I wrong in this thinking? Can someone please explain how this interaction truly works. Thank you.
