Tapped out is saying Foil is banned, but it is not on the list from WotC... Any words of advice?

Updated again, now running four copies of Foil instead of two, to protect my enchantments and swans. Took out two copies of Molten Vortex hoping I can get to one of the other six cards that does the job.

Updated by removing 2 copies of Sphinx's Tutelage and 4 copies of Shock replacing them with 2 copies of Foil and 4 copies of Lightning Bolt

HauntinYou on The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*

4 weeks ago

I'm currently running Firestorm in my own Locust God deck. Whenever you are in an infinite draw combo and you're about to deck yourself, you can cast this and discard your hand (probably with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth). You will definitely have enough legal targets (because tokens) and you can just burn your opponents faces for 70 damage. As long as your opponents don't have hexproof, this is a very strong wincondition.Turbulent Dreams can work similarly (just bouncing all of your opponents permanents), and can even work very well in conjunction with Firestorm because you can use it to bounce permanents that give hexproof. This however does require Quicken for when you go off with Kindred Discovery .

Another wincondition (less combo-ish, so I'm not sure if it will fit) is Tears of Rage. You will often be finding yourself attacking with 10+ flyers, so they will deal a ton of damage with this card.

As for combo protection; Force of Will and Pact of Negation are very good, but I'm not sure about the Mana Drain (especially as you mentioned you were building on a budget). Instead of that, you can run cards like Commandeer, Foil or Disrupting Shoal. You have enough cards in hand anyway ;)

Lastly: what about Gush? You don't seem to be so fond of lands anyway.

Hope these suggestions were useful.

Jori En, Diving on a Budget

This is my $50 budget deck I've been working on. With the new flip cards from Ixalan coming out i really want to add some. Trying to lower the budget enough is hard though. Does anyone know a good replacement to Pongify, Blasphemous Act, or Foil?

Misdirection is a great addition to this deck! I'll totally find a slot for that. I actually have a copy of Foil in my binder so I will also add that, it is good protection. Maybe a few more protective equipment artifacts like Whispersilk Cloak ? or enchantments like Robe of Mirrors ? What do you think?

Misdirection doesn't cost too much, and a 0 cost redirect is always fun. No one is going to like your commander, you got to protect her somehow. It's a cheaper Pact of Negation or Force of Will. Moreover, Foil is another card you might want to consider

TzickyT I can definitely give some budget restrictions just keep in mind it may not be as fast, and you will be at a greater disadvantage with AdNaus.

Rather than candelabra, a slower method would be Deadeye Navigator soulbonded to Peregrine Drake. The reason I don't suggest Great Whale or Palinchron is because their CMC is just too high - significantly hurting you with AdNaus unless you happen to have them.

Mana rocks are tough because their potency lies with their mana cost. If you had pick only 1 I'd probably vote Mana Crypt since it can help with Doomsday.

The others could be replaced with Chromatic Sphere Terrarion etc - they at least make mana and their casting cost is low.

Other untap effects could be stuff like Turnabout and Snap.

Flusterstorm and Force of Will could be replaced with Counterspells like Foil. I'd probably still recommend Pact of Negation for its possibility in Doomsday.

Hope this helps!
