Firesong and Sunspeaker Discussion

Neotrup on Firesong and Sunspeaker + Truce

1 week ago

If Truce is a white instant spell (it usually is) and causes you to gain life (probably because you drew less than two cards) it will trigger Firesong and Sunspeaker's second ability.

Does Truce trigger Firesong and Sunspeaker's 2nd ability?

Firesong and Sunspeaker sound like the commander for you. You need to have a sub theme and lifegain is easy to find in white.

cdkime on Breaking Boros cEDH style is ...

4 weeks ago

When looking at a Commander’s colour identity, I do not think of it as “what do these colours get me,” but rather “what do I lose by picking these colours?” By starting with the premise that five-colours is the “ideal” situation, I then work backwards to see if the Commander’s rules text more than compensates for the “lost” colours.

What makes keeps Boros from being competitive is that, as it stands, there is not a Commander powerful enough to make up for what is lost. Briefly, what is lost? Black’s tutors, Green’s ramp, and Blue’s card draw, counters, and other utilities.

In exchange for that loss, Boros only receives a set of incredibly mediocre commanders. The commanders either come out too late to make a difference (ex. Firesong and Sunspeaker), are just not that exciting (ex. Anax and Cymede requiring you to split attention between targeted spells and creature production), or are just generally outclassed by another Commander (ex. Najeela, the Blade-Blossom does infinite combat steps akin to Aurelia, the Warleader, but can also be played earlier, and go off earlier due to the cards five-colours provides).

cdkime on Firesong and Sunspeaker + spiritualize

4 weeks ago

jshuttera - I don't think this has been explained very well on this thread, and, while this is an old thread, I wanted to help you understand since you were confused.

Spiritualize does not give the creature an ability. Rather, Spiritualize create a delayed trigger that activates if the targeted creature deals damage.

Per rule 603.7d, the source of that delayed trigger is Spiritualize, not the creature. Specifically:

_ If a spell creates a delayed triggered ability, the source of that delayed triggered ability is that spell. The controller of that delayed triggered ability is the player who controlled that spell as it resolved._

Thant makes it seem like it should work, correct?

Not exactly. A delayed trigger goes on the stack as its own entity (603.3: Once an ability has triggered, its controller puts it on the stack as an object that’s not a card the next time a player would receive priority.).

While Spiritualize might be the source of the trigger, it is the delayed trigger that causes the gain of life, not Spiritualize itself.

This is specifically stated in the Gatherer rulings for Firesong and Sunspeaker: Firesong and Sunspeaker’s last ability doesn’t trigger if a triggered ability of a white instant or sorcery spell or card causes you to gain life, such as the triggered ability of Renewed Faith when it’s cycled.

cdkime on Card creation challenge

TypicalTimmy - swapping the colours wasn’t something original - I stole the premise from Firesong and Sunspeaker, then made it so it was a bit harder to use to make running alongside storm a more attractive strategy.

Estrid’s Mask of Shadows

Enchantment Artifact - Equipment

When Estrid’s Mask of Shadows enters the battlefield, attach it to target permanent you control.

Equipped creature has totem armor.


That shares traits of both auras and equipment.

I was quite disappointed with how contraptions were implemented into the game - it seems silly to refer to contraptions on a black-bordered card, but then only implement the idea in silver-boarders.

Starting from scratch, and without requiring a contraption deck, create a new type of Artifact called a contraption that would be black-bordered, can be assembled, and can involve Riggers (per Steamflogger Boss’ rules text).

Gonti, Crime Lord

Legendary Planeswalker - Gonti

+1 Each opponent loses 2 life, then you gain that much life.

-1 Draw two cards and you lose 4 life.

-5 Destroy up to three target creatures, then draw three cards.


Wanted to do something with Fateseal, but oh well. Also, I can't remember the symbol code for starting loyalty.

Make a Buy-A-Box Promo for Core 2019 that's better for Standard than Nexus of Fate. (I.e., casual like Firesong and Sunspeaker but still appealing)

So it was easier to put together an example deck as a starting point than it was to cull/suggest a bunch of cards. Before providing the list though, I would like to point out that for boros, there much more easy to build lists that will probably be more powerful:

Now, onto this example Gisela, Blade of Goldnight list:

Example Gisela

Tried to balance stax and beats and combo. Went for primarily creature combo because that's easiest to play through stax effects.
