Curse of the Swine Discussion

Snooktf2 on Ninja Deck

I tend to always add more removal than needed but atm I think I only see one boardwipe in Devastation Tide.

I'd add another one or two of these that I think within your budget; Curse of the Swine for targeted exile removal; Evacuation is straightforward, simple, and can be played as an instant; Inundate there's only a few of your creatures that aren't blue; or River's Rebuke can really hose someone with your Ninjutsu theme.

eternallee on Curse of the Swine, Narset's ...

I cast Curse of the Swine (X was 8) targeting eight of my opponent's creatures. He responded with Narset's Reversal, targeting my Swine. I hesitatingly responded with Misdirection. Here's where the question(s) started: 1. I know I can target Reversal w/ Misdirection, but then, what would I make Reversal target instead? It seems like my only choice is: Misdirection (no other spells are on the stack). 2. If I have Reversal target Misdirection instead of Swine, my opponent will copy Misdirection (and send Misdirection back to my hand) and then he...what? Targets his Reversal with the copied Misdirection to make it target Swine again? My head already hurts.

In the end, we agreed it was confusing but that likely there was no way Misdirection could save my Swine from his Narset's Reversal. I happened to have only six creatures at this time, btw, so I told him that he had to exile two of his own creatures since X was still 8. He didn't argue (in part because I was about to lose)

Is that correct? Or is there some other answer in the seemingly unending, blue vortex?

Looks good! I definitely recommend Capsize here. Mizzix's ability reduces additional costs like Buyback and Kicker, so you'd be able to play Capsize all day.

These might interest you too: Dominate, Curse of the Swine, Epic Experiment, Thousand-Year Storm, Forbid, Rite of Replication, Spellseeker, Fists of Flame (surprise commander damage!), Braingeyser, Mind Spring, Pirate's Pillage, Pirate's Prize, Spell Swindle, Reality Spasm (untap those lands!), Turnabout

multimedia thanks for the in depth feedback, I will test/implement some of the changes. I had noticed the lack of mana sinks available save for Spectral Sailor really, but to no end really save maybe to combo with Atemsis, All-Seeing's wincon. Curse of the Swine is the only X spell available. Somehow I must have overlooked it or all the options ended up being cut perhaps.

As for a token strategy I considered it but alot of the go wide strategy cards are a bit pricey. That being said I may opt for a token strategy in the 'No Budget Limit' edition. So in the end I think we'll lose Deadeye and go from there. It will leave a bit of room in the budget to add/upgrade other things, like you said.

Kogarashi on Who's card gets exiled

If the card specifies creatures that you control, or your opponent controls, then you may only target creatures that fit those requirements. If it doesn't specify, then you can target any creature that doesn't have something preventing you from targeting it (hexproof, shroud, protection), regardless of who controls it.

For example:

Eerie Interlude says "exile any number of target creatures you control." This means you can't exile your opponent's creatures, or even your own teammate's creatures in a Two-Headed Giant game.

Vengeful Dreams says (in its Oracle text) "exile X target attacking creatures." This means you can only exile creatures that are attacking.

Curse of the Swine doesn't specify the condition of the creatures you can target with it, so as long as the creature is targetable, you can target it, regardless of who controls it.

In the case of cards like Curse of the Swine that give you tokens in exchange, then per the card's text, for each creature that was exiled, its controller (at the time it was exiled) creates a 2/2 green Boar token. So if you exile one of your cards and one of your opponent's, you would each get a token.

What card specifically are you talking about? it depends on what card it is. for Curse of the Swine, yes, if you exile one of your cards and one of your opponent's cards, both of you would get a 2/2 token.

Curse of the Swine would be a prime example of that card effect.

Whoever’s cards you exile depends on which creatures you target. It could be your own, your opponents’, or a mixture of the two.

Change log:

This planeswalker is only really useful for the -1 option, if you get it twice it's great value.

Homeward path protects against theft effects.

Curse can hit as many targets as you require.

Tireless Tracker is too slow and requires spare mana.

Better ramp upgrade.

More creatures to shore up against sac strategies.

Primal order is a powerful wincon when you only run a maximum of 5 non-basic lands.
