Exquisite Firecraft Discussion
3 weeks ago
will be the sum. For example, if both Wizard's Lightning and Wizard's Retort are exiled, you'll have to pay to use Elite Arcanist's ability. On resolution you'll copy both cards, and be able to cast either or both (or neither) without paying their mana costs.
Overwhelming Denial + Unstable Footing will cost you , with the option to pay another to deal 5 damage. You will not be able to pay the surge cost, so any abilities check whether surge was paid will not work.
Rebound is an ability that only applies to a spell cast from your hand, as these copies are cast from exile, it does not apply.
I have no idea what you're trying to do with Exquisite Firecraft.
Lightning Bolt + Scatter to the Winds will let you cast Lightning Bolt and counter it with Scatter to the Winds, but you will not be allowed to pay the awaken cost, so you can't animate a land with it.
With Kaho, Minamo Historian, if the ability is copied, you'll end up exiling 6 cards. They won't be distinct, any time you activate the ability you'll choose one of the cards still exiled and cast it. You won't get to cast two unless you copy the activated ability.
I'll get back to you one Mindswipe, my mind is burning out.
When you copy a spell, you keep the mode and target the same. Most things that copy a spell will let you choose new targets after copying, but nothing to my knowledge lets you change modes.

If Elite Arcanist + Naban, Dean of Iteration , gets to exile and cast two mana stacked cards at once, then can one of these cards, as a copy spell, copy the other card? And does having two cards cast trigger Surge? Would surge have to be cast last every time?
For example. After getting my two creatures out I hand off Wizard's Lightning + Wizard's Retort . Everything seems good so far, a counter spell, followed by 3 damage, a true counter-strike spell for 3 colourless mana.
But when we try Overwhelming Denial + Unstable Footing , Do I get to cast my red spell, and target it if kicked, and then Surge into my counter spell target? Or will I be unable to use them in seperate order? Will my tap cast be too slow to cast two spells and still choose my targets? Can I spend 3 colourless to make sure my counter can't be countered and damage can't be prevented and further inflict 5 burn damage to target player for 3 additional colourless, for a total of 6?
I'm assuming Rebound doesn't work with him unless cast separately by hand due to exile portion of rebound? Copy goes poof?
So on to the third portion. Copying spells cast using the same tap/ability. When we combine Reverberate + Slip Through Space in a single tap, will I get two Slip Through Space? Giving me 2 unblockable targets and draw 2 cards for 3 colourless?
And what happens when Howl of the Horde + Twincast are paired up after an attack? How do they copy each other, should they, and what is the highest number of spell copies they can provide a follow up spell? Is it simply, that Howl of the Horde multiplies Twincast by 2? For 3 copies of target spell? And can that target then be Howl of the Horde for 6 future copies of a target follow up spell for a foundation of 5 colourless mana as a setup?
Can I combine Dispel + Wizard's Lightning without canceling my damage out? Can my counter spell be fizzled out to let my burn deal damage or will I not having a dispel target, prevent me from completing the tap?
Can I use a Lightning Bolt + Scatter to the Winds without any counter targets by just targeting my Lightning Bolt so that I can cast my Awaken at the end of a turn for 7 colourless even if my opponent cast no spells? And does Awaken work like Kicker as all colourless, or do I need a very specific mana type as specified on the Awaken cards?
Almost done. :) Does Kaho, Minamo Historian stack her exiled spells together in one mana shot or do they split in three? And if she got doubled by Naban, Dean of Iteration, would she have to cast all 6 at a time, 3 and 3 seperately, or can she cast them all individually?
Now... Mindswipe. So, if I were to copy this with the same target, the first spell would remove the target of the second the cancel out correct? Can I copy it for two mana using my second spell and then choose new targets for double if they try and counter my counter with their own? Or will the copy be too early and be unable to choose anything not by the first? What if there were already two instants out? In what situation would a double Mindswipe be possible?
Lastly, for spells like Cryptic Command, does copying it let you choose new versions of it or is the same choice made?

Yep. I can. Kicker is apparently an optional cost that can be done after a free cast.
So, as a Living Lore fanatic, this is good news. :)
Throw in a Renowned Weaponsmith, a Quicksilver Amulet + Living Lore + Twincast, or an Imprinted Artifact that cast be Imprinted for 3 on a previous turn, and then duped with Pyromancer's Goggles. Giving the spell Rebound would also work. I forget which card did that. Maybe a Chandra Planeswalker or something. She a Reverberate loyalty ability of some kind. I typically only mix red and blue when I want to mass replicate a single spell into a one-shot kill. Pinging with a bunch of small attacks seems like a lot of work and I'm way too lazy for that. :p
Last time I did this was in Standard using Living Lore, Howl of the Horde, and Arrow Storm. But Imprinting and Copying with Artifacts should work here too. Though I guess Mono-Red could throw in Living Lore if they used a Quicksilver Amulet themselves. But then Generator Servant and Howl of the Horde did pretty well on their own for rushing a Living Lore. Of course, using Pyromancer's Goggles on a 2 copy spell like Howl of the Horde means there's 5 versions of the next spell cast. So if you cast just a 4 damage spell like Exquisite Firecraft, then it becomes a fatal strike. But, Fight with Fire when used at that point would most likely still kill because the opponent would most likely be wounded by their own lands or a previous creature or red spell. So the 9 mana wouldn't actually be required. Just 5 mana. Not a bad cost for a winning shot. While there are cheaper spells, they don't scale up to kill with a single copy. They don't let you finish an opponent who is at half health. They don't keep card draw/casting down. And take up more room in your deck. Especially if you want a low damage card and a high damage card. This card is a two for one. It also puts in place a system which can be abused by other spells, giving your deck more versatility. Throw in some Seismic Spike cards to shift the mana game around so you can follow up with a kicked Fight with Fire. Lots of choices here.
So... a went a bit off the rails here I think. :p

Defenitely not shock. Two damage is not enough thats why I also wouldnt play burst lightning.

18 lands and 4 shardvolley is not where you want to be normaly also you dont want to have thounderous wrath in your opening hand its an automatic mulligan and it will lso ruin your hand if you draw it on turn one.

yeah you shouldnt try to use BBE multiple times, that wont work as good as you might thinkAtarka's Command is pretty good in the same deck as bbe.
Combining burn with landfall seems odd and not very usefull so id drop this idea.
What about something like
4 BBE 4 Monastery Swiftspear 4 Ball Lightning
4 Lava Spike 4 Lightning Bolt 4 Rift Bolt 4 Atarka's Command 4 Searing Blood/ Searing Blaze (Searing Blood might be better because you cant guarantee the landfall trigger when you are cascading) 2 Exquisite Firecraft

Definately Eidolon of the Great Revel, but if you can't affort him I get that.
Another Searing Blood just because.
Grim Lavamancer is somewhat underwhelming without Fetches, but as a 1 (maybe 2) of, it's still playable, and good against Lantern control.
Shard Volley is another "playable" burn spell. It's not that great, but in the end it does what you want it to.
Shrine of Burning Rage Ain't bad, but it's a meta card. If you play a lot of slow matchups, it's your best card, if not, it's mediocre.
Searing Blaze I'm reluctant about. It's basicly an RNG Sorcery removal when you lack fetches... (Probably the reason you don't run it yourself anyways)
You pretty much already run all the best cards, (except for Eidolon.) So all you need is to choose your filler, really.

yeah thats right the evasion might be worth it because of those creatures. You also dont want to cut any spells so the deck should be better without Swiftspear.
What about running 3 copies of Electrolyze in the SB?I would cut Exquisite Firecraft (i cant think of a spezific matchup where you want it) and Grim Lavamancer (is also good against small creatures but vulnerable to creature removal, you dont want to have it against decks where you also board in relics which be be the same matchups, and it doesnt synergize with your gameplan)
