reaperOscuroCore on Karlov - life gain/voltron

1 month ago

Cool deck, good inspiration for my own, ta! Thought of using Dying Wish? Would complete all your flings, or put instead of consumption/essence?

reaperOscuroCore on Kresh the Bloodbraided (12 of 32)

Wowzer, this has changed a lot! Mix of control, return, token, and strong aggression...i like!!Like the trickle pain, hope it works...Impact Resonance and Warstorm Surge may be worth considering. See you're still running Soulblast, did it work out? Dying Wish might be better than Rite of Consumption because it makes em lose life, and also you can later trigger as an instant with sac outlets -but you'd have to test to make sure. Ogre Battledriver instead of Madrush Cyclops...is Filth helping?Honestly though I like a lot, nasty!

Gattison on Magic: The Gangstering

2 months ago

Here are several parody songs I wrote about The Game of Cardboard Crack. Most of them are old-school hip-hop. Hope that's okay.

The following is a parody of "Boyz in Da Hood," by Eazy-E.

[Verse 1]
Drew 7 quick, at about noon
Gotta play a Corpsejack Menace or two
Cast Hardened Scales before the play begins
Then get ready for the bitchin' from my friends
Simic Initiate, turn two, trigger-time
Cuz nerds at the path can't Interpret the Signs
Abzan Falconer, a whole playset
And some Charms and Battle Priests to fill out the rest
Bailed out some turns, bolstered my weapon
Just as I thought target fool kept steppin'
Jumped on T4, hit the juice on T5
I got counters front back, and side to side
Then I played an MP3 (3)
While buyin' new shit from WotC
It was Bolster Bolster and the Abzan Menace
Then I made my own deck and it looks somethin' like this
Feat of Resistance beats your 6/4
Mutant's Prey bitches, Burst of Strength hoes
Mulligan or draw, it's all the same scoop
Knuckleheads out there cold playin' to first-to-two
An opponent rolls up, who can it be
A fresh, bling deck worth a whole pound of weed
He came to the game table and started to say
It's all about makin' them R.T.F.C.

[Hook]
Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
You come talkin' that trash, we'll pull your card
Knowin' nuttin' in life, but to win legit
Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit

[Verse 2]
That's E. is the spot where I cast my stack
My man E is on that cardboard crack
My man used to be a friend of mine
Till I caught him in my 'yard tryina' steal my Hydra
Cast Treasured Find after I sided it in
He got 2-for-1ed when he did it again
Little did he know I got the mana to play
Planeswalker dead, Top 8, Good Game

[Hook]
Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
Come talkin' that trash, we'll mill your card
Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit

[Verse 3]
Bored as hell and I wanna cast spells
So I went to a spot where other nerds dwell
The kids out there jockin' Deathmist Raptor
You're lucky I ain't playsettin' Siege Rhino, ya bastids...
My life hits 40 and I start thinkin'
I got 8 8/8s, your battlefield's shrinkin'
Tap to Outlast, Phalanx Leader gets cast
Before I pass, Jack Forcefully Adapts
Ya go into ya bag, and ya get out ya pad
Thinkin' you would go 2-and-0, and go online and brag
You write it all down like you can't believe
You about to R-A-G-E-to-the-Q-U-I-T
You go, "no attack, pass," wouldn't ya know
Jack icey like a pimp, attack you bro'
Got the judge pumped up, like he's booin' for you
Bioshift Scute Mob, give him a +1 counter, too[chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
You come talkin' that trash, we'll discard your card
Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit

[Verse 4]
I'm castin' hard like I'm playin' control
Strive for Solidarity of Heroes
I looked at my opponent and he said, "Oh, brother"
He countered my hydra, but I cast another
Flyin' in ya' face, I spin-down ya' die
Green, black, white, Temples of Scry
Did I forget to mention Primordial Hydra?
Gotta mention all my cards before I finish my rhyme
Faces get beat for resistin' my deck
Dromoka's Command sac's your enchantment
My deck is broken, attackin' me is a crime
Sure, 3-out-of-5, if you got the time

[Hook]
Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
Come talkin' that trash, we'll play your card
Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit

[Verse 5]
My opponents go to block, but they got no 'field
Plus I got protection from your Repeal
Two corpsejacks, and your response?
Mill my deck? I'll 'board in Varolz
Be a good sport, said the judge
Don't mainboard Abzan Advantage
Use a calculator to confirm the damage
And a 100/100 is more than most can manage
I don't use fetches, I do it wit' painlands
I could do wit' basic Forests, Swamps and Plains, man
No Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit yet
But get ready to mainboard that Murder

[Hook]
Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
Come talkin' that trash, we'll counter your card
Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
Don't play Legacy, it's competitive as shit

The following is a parody of "Jump Around," by House of Pain.

[Verse 1]
Life is up, counter in
Let me begin
I came to win
Attack me, that's a sin
Drown in dice when I sack up
Spike, ya better back up
Try to play the role and Suture Priest will act up
Life up, Wall up
Touch of Moonglove up
If you got removal then, punk you better use it
Wall of Limbs, Nyx-Fleece Ram
My Dying Wish
Is Murder Investigations
Block it, pump it
Sac it anyway
And I deal more damage than nerds at ya Local Gaming Shop
Sho nuff, I got lots of Exquisite Bonds
Plus Vampire Nighthawks

[Hook]
I came to get counters, I came to get counters
So get out your dice and help me count 'em
Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
Pump up, pump up, and win now

[Verse 2]
I'll cut your deck like Mike Holmes' show
If Jimmy steps up, infinite combo
Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond
And I got more triggers than North Korea got bombs
Just like Prodigal Sorcerer I've returned
Got no blue or red spells, still you'll get burned
'Cause I got life and you ain't got none
If you come to battle bring Protection
But if you do you're a fool, 'cause I deal to the face
Try to go 50 with me, you come in last place
I got the Wall, come get your Limbs
'Cause when I play Magic, I play like Tims

[Hook]
I came to get counters, I came to get counters
So get out your dice and help me count 'em
Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
Pump up, pump up, and win now

[Verse 3]
I Consume Spirits, and Doom Blade a lot
I never Diabolic Tutor 'cause I get what I want
Ya better get a Tournament player
Like Andrew Cuneo
To try and play me out like as if my name were Yu-Gi-Oh
But I ain't goin' out like no kid-game
Get used to one style and I might have to make
The change up up and around, new strategies now
Take all your life and ya' wake up in your own graveyard
Lingering Souls, Lingering Souls
I'm spittin' out 1/1 Spirits and 1/1 Soldiers too bro

[Hook]
But I came to get counters, I came to get counters
So get out your dice and help me count 'em
Help me count, help me count, help me count
Help me count my counters up now
Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
Pump up, pump up, and win now

The following is a parody of "O.P.P.," by Naughty by Nature.

Draw three wit' Harmonize
"WotC" drop a block on 'em

M.T.G. How can I explain it
I'll take you phase by phase it
To have y'all all castin,' drawin,' playin' shit
M is for Magic, T is for the definite article The.
And the G, well, lemme' tell y'about lands and mana
It's sorta like money, but no the card's worth just eleven cents
You see these 5 colors here, yeah, that's all there is
But wait, no, actually, yeah, there's also artifacts.
And gold cards and also don't forget colorless
Cast it.
You ever draw a godhand when you on the play?
Win on T3, table-flip and didn't say "good game?"
And then you sideboarded all your creatures out
Game 2, burnin' faces at ya cousin's house.
It's not a M-I-S, P to the L to the A to the Y
I really meant to turn one Lightning Bolt your guy
It's M.T.G. time, attack me and you gonna get it
There's no room for friendships, there's just room to swing wit.'
However many goblin tokens I can generate
It ain't wrong to Timmy up a field and then Spike your mate
And if you think it is, go play Pokemon
But if you don't, then here's your DCI card.

[Hook]
You down wit' M.T.G.? (Yeah you know me) [repeat 3x]
Who's down wit' M.T.G.? (All us Standard geeks)
You down wit' M.T.G.? (Yeah you know me) [repeat 3x]
Who's down wit' M.T.G.? (Every Standard geek)

(Now for the ladies) M.T.G. means something different
They say it's OK at first, but soon you find it isn't
It's the dumbest, most money-suckin' complete waste of time
You'd rather play with your cards than wit' this vagine.
They say the M-in-the-acronym stands for "masturbate"
T means "together" and the G, well of course that's "game"
They think we circle-jerkin' man, that's what I'm sayin'
I think they jealous they ain't got the cards we playin.'
Cast it.
You ever met a nerd who been playin' Magic all his life
On-again, off-again, back to Revised
You looked at him, he looked at you, and you knew right away
You and your vajayjay was gonna make him quit this game.
You said you wanted to learn to play but you didn't care
Cuz' at the end-of-day they still just paper squares
When y'all were done you went an' jumped his bones
He wanted to play again, you went fo' the do.'
Now don't be shocked if you come back he's playin' MTGO
Say M.T.G. (M.T.G.!) Always say it wit' pride
And when you play it, play it well and make sure it counts
You may be winnin' 8 packs now

[Hook]
You down wit' M.T.G.? (Yeah you know me) [repeat 3x]
Who's down wit' M.T.G.? (All us Modern geeks)
You down wit' M.T.G.? (Yeah you know me) [repeat 3x]
Who's down wit' M.T.G.? (Every Modern geek)

Some Johnny tried to Spike me
I'm mono- and he knew that, matter-of-fact, that why he played
He played an Island, a Hedron Crab and he passed priority
I thought I told y'all already, I Lightning Bolt wit' authority.
Cast it.
I mainboard Red Elemental Blast cuz playin' is cheatin'
He didn't believe it, he kept comin' back and catchin' beatins'
I said, "You wanna' go for 3-out-of-5, like Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey?"
He said, "What--?!" I said "Bitch, nevermind. I gotta' go win this tourney."
My archetype is burny, salty-by-nature rules attourney
Flip tables, catch warnins,' controllin' playas' like Sorin
Try hittin' me wit' a Cruel Ultimatum and I'll break ya' heart
You knew I was playin' M.T.G., hell, from the very start.
Come on, come on, now let me tell you what it's all about
When you get beat, you can't go runnin' off at the mouth
That's rule number one, at this L.G.S.
Act 13 and up and you can F.N.M.
Exciting isn't it? You are a planeswalker, kid
You brew your own deck and you bling it out proper wit'
Promos and prereleases by the playset
And say, "When M.T.G. happens, damn skippy I'm wit' it."

[Hook]
You down wit' M.T.G.? (Yeah you know me) [repeat 3x]

Supahpikmin on death is a myth

2 months ago

I looked up some cards that might benefit your deck a bit:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives all your dudes undying, but it's a little late game.

Butcher Ghoul is a basic 2-mana undying that can balance out the colors a bit more (Since the deck is green-heavy but the lands aren't)

Dying Wish is good to place on one of your strong guys to deter an enemy from killing it, and to punish them if they do.

Glissa, the Traitor It's passive abilities make it a beast of a creature that you'll at least 3 of.

nkoroslev on Karlov Life gain Competitive (Tiny)

3 months ago

Nice build. I think the main thing to do when using Karlov is making it a point to gain life every turn.

As for creatures, did you consider Vizkopa Guildmage and/or Drana's Emissary? Vizkopa is great if you're gaining 3-4 or more life per turn and you have nothing to cast (or have more than enough mana).

With artifacts and enchantments there are Contemplation, Tablet of the Guilds, Pristine Talisman. These are great for getting life gain each turn and usually multiple times. spirit bond is great because it will allow you to extract more value out of your soul sisters. You can also sac them to make a creature indestructible.

With auras Dying Wish can become a win condition on Karlov and creates an element of protection via Catch 22, and Felidar Umbra great as well.

With land, Vault of the Archangel can give all your creatures lifelink and deathtouch. Just use it AFTER blockers are declared. Opal Palace is also a good land to run with Karlov.

acbooster on Can you equipt an opponents ...

3 months ago

That works how you want it to. You'll still control the Stitcher's Graft even after you lose control of the creature, and as a result you can activate its Equip ability, forcing them to sacrifice their creature. Whenever a permanent changes control, it still has all permanents attached to it that wouldn't fall off from change of control (such as Dying Wish, which requires it to be on a creature you control)

BlueScope on If a creature is controlled ...

3 months ago

Auras (and Equipment, and Fortifications) are attached to the permanents they enchant (or equip, or fortify). This means that under normal circumstances, they don't unattach unless they change zones (an enchanted creature that is returned to it's owner's hand will leave the Aura behind, which causes it to be put in the graveyard).

What also causes them to unattach is if the enchanted permanent becomes illegal to enchant. This is the case for cards like Dying Wish as merrowMania mentioned, that enchant a creature you control, and since you're still the controller of the Aura (as only control of the creature changed), the Aura will be put in the graveyard for enchanting an illegal permanent.

There are other situations where Auras could "fall off" a permanent when changing controllers, but they're all related to enchanting illegal permanents. For example, if the opponent controlled Akroma's Memorial and your enchantment was red or black, it would be enchanting an illegal permanent.

Note that if your opponent controlled something to give all their creatures Shroud, such as Greater Auramancy, the Aura would remain on the creature. Auras target when you cast them, but if the creature later gains Shroud (or even Hexproof, in this example), while you will be unable to cast other Auras on it from that point on, Auras already attached to the creature aren't affected by it.

A little out of context, but because I mentioned Equipments and Fortifications in the beginning: Unlike Auras, you can only equip or fortify a permanent you control. I already mentioned that Equipments and Fortifications also stay attached to the creatures they equip/fortify, however as you still control them, you (and not your opponent) can still activate their Equip/Fortify abilities. Note that you need to target one of your own permanents when activating them.

merrowMania on If a creature is controlled ...

3 months ago

Some example would help. I'll try to answer what I believe you are asking.

If control of a creature changes, Auras attached to that creature do not change controllers. Sometimes, who controls the creature matters, like with Dying Wish, but the majority of Auras do not care about the controller, so they will stay attached to the creature regardless. In the case of my Dying Wish example, the Aura is no longer attached to a legal permanent, so it it put into its owner's graveyard.

Hope this helped. If you have any further questions (or I didn't answer your intended question), feel free to inquire :)
