Elixir of Immortality Discussion

Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.

Okay, so first off, get rid of Sol Ring, scrub. Secondly, some potentially good fast mana sources would be Songs of the Damned, Cabal Ritual, Dark Ritual, and/or Culling the Weak.

Now on to the real meat:

Perpetual Timepiece, Elixir of Immortality, Primal Command, Piper's Melody (and friends)

These are good for grabbing your GY so you don't mill yourself out or to protect yourself from enemy Bojuka Bogs and such.

Combo 1:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo

  • Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
  • Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
  • Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.

Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.

Combo 2:

Necrotic Ooze Combo

Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.

Combo 3:

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo

This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.

  • Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
  • In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
  • Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.

This gets around player Hexproof and graveyard hate, so you don't have to worry about things like Leyline of Sanctity and Leyline of the Void with this combo, unlike the other two.

Combo 4:

Colorless Mana Combo

  • Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
  • Play Nim Deathmantle.
  • Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
  • Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
  • Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens

Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

I would say look at Chaplain's Blessing as well as Rhox Faithmender and Elixir of Immortality never hurt!

Cranial Archive, Elixir of Immortality and Learn from the Past may help with getting your dragons back when you put them into your graveyard.

xyr0s on R/B Burn/Discard

Correct me if I'm wrong on this: you plan to control your opponent through discard, with burn/discard-damage as wincondition, right?

If that is true, Elixir of Immortality simply doesn't contribute to winning, and Otherworld Atlas directly works against your own plan. Lifegain is fine, but it isn't relevant in every match (to put it mildly), therefore Elixir of Immortality belongs in the sideboard, and should be brought in against burn and other fast aggro.

The madness subset of cards is a little on the low end, if they are ever supposed to meet. 2 of each is simply too little. Oona's Prowler would help on this, but a creature with toughness 1 is not something you should build interactions around. Necrogen Mists could be useful - it does something during upkeep, and with enough madness cards, that could be pretty funny.

TheDevicer on Why I Am Quitting Standard ...

I grew pretty frustrated with Standard. I've been playing the relatively new Eternal digital card game. It's basically Magic with some changes. When I told my friends this, they immediately shot me down saying "It's not magic." Well, yeah, no shit. But it sure as hell beats the current state of standard. I also get to play dimir control deck to my hearts content.

Standard's pretty shitty atm. For control players, the mere existence of Heart of Kiran and Scrapheap Scrounger make things insanely complicated. We actually have more support for control in standard than in a long while with win cons that don't kill the game like Elixir of Immortality... Sucks for hardcore draw-go fanatics.

Mxyzptlk on Masumaro Challenge - I want to draw all the cards

I don't know how full your graveyard gets, but if you end up with a lot of cards there, you could use graveyard to library effects to prevent drawing out. Something like Gurzigost + Feldon's Cane or Elixir of Immortality? Green kind of makes you do it in a roundabout way.

Elixir of Immortality allows you to shuffle in your graveyard which is helpful in control decks like this one
