Darksteel Colossus Discussion

I dont really know if your working on a budget, but I would suggest playing Blightsteel Colossus if for 1) you like being a dirty little bastard, and for two, if you have like, $100 to throw at this game. You can also run Darksteel Colossus which is basically just the budget version with out looking like a dirty little bastard, so umm, yeah, hoped this helped.

You could try taking out a Vedalken Engineer and a Drawn from Dreams since you have Sage of Epityr and you no longer have Darksteel Colossus which makes the ramping for artifacts a little overkill, especially since by the time you have your Karn out you will already have almost all the mana you need to cast Knowledge Pool. Actually you could possibly take out a Grand Architect, since he sometimes gets in the way and the aggro of it is somewhat deterrent if you are trying to lock the board down.

I do like the change you made with Flooded Strand as it makes it so Blood Moon can't effect you if you crack it while Blood Moon is on the stack to fetch a basic. It also give you that shuffle that you might need if you realize that Sage of Epityr did not give you what you wanted. Also just good for a shuffle if you are being mana screwed/flooded.

Sigarda's Aid is a neat descision, as it allows you to flash your lock enchantment out at the end of your opponents turn or at the beginning to stop them from doing anything if you have Knowledge Pool.

I've decided to take out Darksteel Colossus and Burnished Hart for Sigarda's Aid and Colossus Hammer because its easier to cheat out, and I dont have to ramp as much so hypothetically, I could get a 11/11 by turn 2

I actually haven't played any tournaments but I have been playing MTG for around 7 years. I can see why you put in Darksteel Colossus over Blightsteel Colossus because you can reshuffle it into your library (and it doesn't have infect). You could try playtesting this deck on untap.in. I will and will see how well it works :)

Tylord2894 on How does Kaya’s Ghostform interact ...

For future reference, you can surround a card name with double brackets, "[", to link the card. This works sitewide.

To your question, the importance here is that both Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Kaya's Ghostform will trigger when Emrakul dies. When a player has two or more triggers that are being added to the stack at the same time, that player gets to choose the order that they are put onto the stack.

Now, the stack is the pile of spell and abilities that are trying to resolve. The stack resolves in a first-in-last-out order. In other words, if you put everything that's trying to resolve in a tower with the newest stuff on top, you resolve the stack top to bottom. Think about something like Counterspell. If I cast Lightning Bolt and you try to counter it, obviously, my Bolt would be stopped. That's because you're Counterspell is newer than my Bolt, so Counterspell resolves first.

Back to your question, since you get to pick the order of your triggers, you get to choose whether you want to shuffle Emrukal away or reanimate Emrukal.

I want to point out one last thing. Not all effects like that of Emrakul work the same way. Consider Darksteel Colossus. Where Emrakul says "when" its put into a graveyard, Colossus says "if" its put. While these seem like they do the same thing, they are very different. This is a replacement effect, so Colossus never hits the graveyard. Meanwhile, Emrakul will, even if it's just briefly.

I know that's a lot of information, so all more questions are welcome. Hope this helps!!

Gidgetimer on Is this infinite combo tournament ...

Since people keep using the word "colossus" when talking about the Eldrazi titans, let's talk about the colossi. Darksteel Colossus and Blightsteel Colossus have a different ability than the Eldrazi titans. They have a replacement effect that means they will never go to the graveyard. You will not have to deal with someone reshuffling their library, but they are cards that you can not get out of the library via milling. You will either need to force them to draw the colossus, or wait an additional turn after giving your opponent a massive amount of cards in hand.

I like the deck, altough not sure why you're running Darksteel Colossus unless you need a beater?

Are Draco , Darksteel Colossus , and Emrakul, the Promised End in here for their potential Yuriko triggers or as some alternative wincons?
