Elvish Piper Discussion

There are some cards which I find confusing in your deck. Purphoros, God of the Forge is usually reserved for token decks or other "Go-wide" stategies whereas you are a "go-big" strategy. I also dont know how good Stalking Vengeance is. You are not a sacrifice based deck so this is just a lot of mana for some incremental damage. Then there's Sun Titan . It just doesnt seem like you have a lot of targets for him to bring back. Perhaps a fetchland or a mana dork that got killed early but not much else. Doesn't seem worth it. Then there's some other cards. I prefer Terastodon over Woodfall Primus . And why Sylvan Scrying and no Kodama's Reach ? I'd also consider adding just one more haste enabler. You have multiple creatures that want to be attacking right away like Etali, Primal Storm , Ilharg, the Raze-Boar , Balefire Dragon plus all the eldrazis. May I recommend Rhythm of the Wild ? Seems really solid in your deck.

Here are some other cards you could consider: Elvish Piper , Aura Shards , Decimate , It That Betrays , Void Winnower , Blasphemous Act , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Regal Behemoth .

Hope these help.

@Catpocolypse. It's 50/50. I find the only time I don't have the mana cast it is when I play Elvish Piper or Quicksilver Amulet in an early turn, but those are also the most important returns to use counterspells to disrupt the other player so it's hard to choose the best spell.

So just so you know, you could get a t3 Emrakul using Elvish Piper

T1: Forest , Arbor Elf

T2: Forest , Utopia Sprawl . Tap, untapped w/ Arbor Elf , tap for 4, putting down an Elvish Piper

T3: Cheat out Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and proceed to win the game.

Deck talk now. I would drop the Phantasmal Image . Anything you would copy could easily win the game on its own, and ElvishPiper rulings state that the card MUSR be in your HAND, which makes Phantasmal Image useless when you could be hitting an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn instead. I'd add 2 copies of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and 1 more copy of whatever threat you favor most after that.

I would also look at Pact of Negation instead of Mana Leak , just because with the past of this deck, I'd imagine thst you don't often have any mana open for very long.

With such a high average cmc, would it not be useful to add a creature cheater such as Elvish Piper or Quicksilver Amulet ?

Would you also not want an Explosive Vegetation , Sword of the Animist , and Myriad Landscape ?

I've been playing Jarad for a while, really fun in my opinion. Wall of Blood and Essence Harvest are a couple of my favorite cards, so it's great to see them in the list.

I didn't know Copperhoof Vorrac existed before your list, very interesting, might have to add him. I've also been meaning to get me a Mossbridge Troll, thanks for reminding me.

Ramunap Excavator is like Crucible of Worlds on a creature, can help you get back lands that you've sacc'd for extra uses. Doesn't look like you have too many activated abilities, but Necrotic Ooze can be a second copy of your Wall of Blood (provided it's in the gy), and your opponent's might have some cool abilities in their GY.

Hermit Druid Elvish Piper Doomed Necromancer are all creatures that I run that my Ooze could potentially use the abilities of if they end up in my GY. I like running creatures like these because if they can take the place of a spell, that's one more creature in my GY buffing Jarad and other Llurgoyf like creatures. Also, because they are creatures, they are more easily retrieved from the GY to be used again.

One last thing, been playing recently with Mirage Mirror and I honestly think I'm going to start putting it in all of my decks, just so many uses you can get out of it. Recently I made it copy someone's Amulet of Vigor and then played a fat Splendid Reclamation . Was too much fun. Get the mirror while it's still reasonable.

Really like this list, looks fun.

RoarMaster on Enchantments are annoying. - Tuvasa the Sunlit

Well, Im not a judge(I have a friend who is a level 2 and he claims I know at least as much as him), but I do have the 286 page comprehensive rulebook(as of Khans) beside my toilet as reading material :P

But yeah, the difference between 'play' and 'cast' is only that 'play' allows you to play lands as well as cast spells, wheras 'cast' text would only allow spells to be cast.

Look at Muldrotha, the Gravetide as an example. You can most definitely counter the spells that she allows to be 'played' from her grave. She would be the most broken commander ever if she didnt allow you to counterspell her stuff! She has the wording 'Play' because the card is also intended to allow you to play lands from your grave, and if she had 'cast' written instead, you would not be able to.

It is possible your judge was thinking of "putting X into play", such as from Elvish Piper s ability. Putting something into play is uncounterable(although you could Stifle the pipers ability, but I digress). But being able to 'play' a card, and 'putting something into play' are entirely different things. The wording of 'put into play' was changed years ago to 'put onto the battlefield' for this very reason: It was incredibly confusing.

Anyway, I hope this helps clarify things. I kinda started rambling on a bit, haha

I love the theme, might build it myself as I think I have about half of the pieces. But with 34 lands, do you have enough ramp? I might also look at ways of cheating out creatures, like with Elvish Piper . Also, I think I like Growth Spiral better than Farseek . But this is great!
