Evermind Discussion

metalmagic on Electrodominance and Restore Balance

1 month ago

Ok so here's a quick breakdown. Cards like Restore Balance , Ancestral Vision , and even Evermind cannot be cast normally. Electrodominance and other things like As Foretold circumvent this.

Reasons: these cards do not have a mana cost, meaning you cannot just straight up cast them from your hand because unless otherwise specified, paying a cost is part of casting a spell. However, these cards have a converted mana cost of 0, much like Ornithopter or Memnite . When a card looks for the CMC of a spell, it sees these as being 0 which allows this interaction to work since it lets you cast them without paying their mana cost.

Another thing to think about it the reminder text for Suspend, which is how these cards were originally meant to be cast: Rather than cast this card from your hand, pay White and exile it with six time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost. It functions the same way in allowing you to circumvent the non-existent mana cost.

I hope this helped, and I can go into further detail if necessary.

@Funkydiscogod - very nice. Evermind meets Mizzix's Mastery and I love it!

Boza on color of Archangel Avacyn.

Color identity is what counts for EDH - the mana symbols in the top right plus any in the text of the card not in reminder text and crucially, color indicators (that little dot in the type line) - Archangel Avacyn  Flip is red/white, while Evermind is blue.

If I were you, I would have abused 1 drops like Lightning Bolt, Shock, Unsummon, Cerulean Wisps or Crimson Wisps, Gitaxian Probe, Disrupt, and Evermind.

...or just Teller of Tales for more budget/simpler combo with Evermind

apologies for spam...

alternatively, if the next time they are prepared to stop your combo, bring Intruder Alarm, Evermind, Shared Fate, and Talrand, Sky Summoner for a flood of tokens to steal every opponent's deck.

... crazy idea... maybe as a sideboard if that's allowed

(if you can't tell, I'm in love with your commander <3 )

This interaction does work. Evermind's reminder text means that you must find a way to cast it without paying its NONEXISTENT mana cost. It is to differentiate it from a card with mana cost . If not having a mana cost prevented spells from being cast, Lotus Bloom would be a bulk rare.

IcyLightning on Using Kaho, Minamo Historian to ...

Can Kaho, Minamo Historian be used to cast an instant that has no mana cost, such as Evermind as part of its ability? Spells without mana costs are unable to be cast normally, but would Kaho, Minamo Historian bypass this limitation allowing it to cast a card such as Evermind for 0?
