Dying Wish Discussion

The poison that Wesley was immune to could either be Moonglove Extract or Vial of Poison.

Dread pirate Roberts: Fathom Fleet Cutthroat or Fathom Fleet Captain or Hostage Taker and Dire Fleet Poisoner could represent the time Wesley spent as the pirate.

The boat Wesley uses might be Fell Flagship or Sleek Schooner or Shadowed Caravel. The boat the princess is kidnapped in could be Smuggler's Copter or Dusk Legion Dreadnought.

Shrieking eel: Shriekmaw or a Slipstream Eel equipped with Fireshrieker.

Dying Wish could represent the scene where Buttercup pushes Wesley down the hill and he yells "as you wish!"

Their battle "to the pain" could be Pain's Reward or Painful Quandary or Decree of Pain.

Dying Wish doesn't work how you want it to here with your Commander, "dies" means going to the graveyard, and you'll be sending him back to the Command Zone as a replacement effect (same with someone like Elenda, the Dusk Rose). Love the idea though, I immediately thought the pair worked best with the Whalewolf slamming in for huge amounts of damage with green for ramp and pump, thought about Scroll of the Masters? It's takes a bit to get rolling but guaranteed unblockable to get the damage through seems pretty great.

Yesterday on Which combat damage happens first, ...

Damage is simultaneous. Player one wins.

Both the Wall of Limbs and the player are dealt damage at the same time. State based actions are checked, and player two and Wall of Limbs die. The triggered ability from the Dying Wish (that would kill player one, if it were to resolve) never gets a chance to resolve, because the player that controls the ability loses the game before that point.

I am usually good with rules, but this one is stumping me. So in the 2-player game, side one has

2 Lord of the Accursed, 1 Death Baron, 1 Reassembling Skeleton, and 1 standard 2/2 zombie token

and they want to attack all out on side two, which has

2 Basilica Screecher, and 1 Wall of Limbs with 9 +1/+1 counters and the enchantment Dying Wish.

The problem comes with what order the damage is dealt. If creature damage is dealt first, then Dying Wish would kill player one by the deathtouch given by Death Baron. Yet if player damage is dealt first, then player one would win. If both damage are simultaneous, then each player would lose; if this is the case, who would win?

Really cool deck!! What do you think of running Ravos, Soultender and Tana, the Bloodsower as your generals instead? Ravos recurs your fling fodder, and Tana's tokens supplement cards like Kresh, Prossh and Mazirek. I would remove the cards that count # of creatures in graveyards like Mortivore as I think those will be underwhelming outside of a dedicated mill deck. Maybe give these cards a try: Gratuitous Violence , Serra Avatar , Evra, Halcyon Witness , Dying Wish , Fruit of the First Tree , Warstorm Surge .

I like. Few suggestions for ya. Dying Wish and Rite of Consumption let you throw Skullbriar at people.

Forge of Heroes , Guildmages' Forum and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood would give you more lands that add counters to Skullbriar. Karn's Bastion adds more counters assuming he already has at least one.

With Phyresis already in the deck, you might also consider Glistening Oil . Skullbriar's ability won't keep the -1/-1 counters and unlike Phyresis, Glistening Oil can be reused. Rancor would also give you reusable trample.

Forced Adaptation , Ring of Xathrid and Armory of Iroas other potential low-cost +1/+1 counter generators.

Hope you find something you can use in all that text. :)

Rite of Consumption and Dying Wish give you alternate win conditions with Skullbriar. The aura can also deter a lot of removal. Difficult to destroy Skullbriar if you're going to die for it.
