Neotrup on Will Platinum Angel save me?

1 month ago

With Platinum Angel state based actions will be checked and cause Platinum Angel to be put destroyed at the same time as all other players lose the game. This means you will win the game, which is good, because the very next thing that would happen is state based actions being checked again and you losing the game.

With Fortune Thief the damage would cause your life total to become 1 and then state based actions would cause Fortune Thief to be destroyed at the same time as ell other players losing the game. This time your super safe because even if the game somehow continued your life total would still be 1.

Bezter on Will Platinum Angel save me?

Hello all! Question:

I have a Platinum Angel on the board. Each player is at 5 life or less.

I cast Inferno in an attempt to kill all of my opponents, myself, all creatures, and win the game. Will the Angel save me?

Same question with Fortune Thief, does she work out for me too? Thanks in advance!

UnleashedHavok thanks very much for recognizing the effort that goes into a deck description like this! The cards you listed are definitely a good core for the start of this deck. Stranglehold probably isn't actually necessary, it's just one of the best cards that Red has available and should probably be in every red deck. That being said, you could probably build this whole deck for little more than $60. Just don't have it foiled out and use something else in place of Wheel of Fortune like Reforge the Soul. It shouldn't be very expensive otherwise.

Eldrazi Monument is in here because you should generally be able to win in a single turn once you start casting big spells. The monument protects Neheb and your other creatures from all your symmetrical burn spells and most importantly, it allows Coalhauler Swine to take a fuckton of damage and pass it on to everyone without dying, which combos with Fortune Thief too. Malignus isn't in the deck and probably won't ever be as I wanted to play it and War Elemental with Fling but that turned out to be too slow to be super useful. Glacial Chasm is a fun choice but since I do actually want to attack most of the time it would risk being a bummer. Also, I hate playing lands that don't make mana because it fucks your tempo in a multiplayer game badly.

Sean4447 maybe in other people's builds. You're right about it being great with Repercussion but so are most of the spells already in this deck, and they can't be countered by Strip Mine like Star of Extinction.

goblinguiderevealpls I addressed stuffy doll in the description, I feel that Coalhauler Swine is better and more interesting. Rakdos neheb is definitely a good card for a solid minotaur build, it's a shame he's not Mardu though as there are some good boros minotaurs. Idk why I'd have to win the lottery to replace the mountains with SC mountains as they're not particularly expensive and I actually have several dozen spare ones already, but that interaction wouldn't be especially valuable in this deck and I like having the true singleton mountains with all different arts.

Thank you all for your comments and thoughts!

I'd suggest getting this to become a grixis control deck, in which removal, board wipes, and a bit of prison if possible, things like discard outlets (Call the Bloodline) into Ensnaring Bridge could be fun, or whatever floats you boat (Moat).

Some good pillow fort for grixis:

Fortune Thief

Circle of Flame

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs

Dissipation Field

Jace, Architect of Thought (It is cheap because of the Duel Deck!)

Ogre Slumlord

Shipwreck Singer

Godhead of Awe (5 blue is harsh, but technically...)

Haunter of Nightveil

Kulrath Knight

Thunderstaff

Silent Arbiter

Platinum Angel

Platinum Emperion

Orbs of Warding

Ensnaring Bridge

Crawlspace

I will make some new comments for the removal and board wipes later.

I was running Platinum Emperion but switched him out for Fortune Thief which essentially solves the same problem in the deck and I've always wanted to play her. I considered Pariah's Shield exactly for what you're saying or maybe for putting on Coalhauler Swine, but without them it doesn't do much and I currently cut Stuffy Doll since it only focuses on one person. This deck already makes people focus me enough because I'm relatively aggro, I realized I don't need the doll to kill them all and it just makes one person saltier at me. Often I have only a couple creatures including Neheb and it's not like I want him to die from the Shield if I don't have a pro-red sword.

I'd nix the Magebane Armor for Sword of Fire and Ice. The only noncombat damage source you're worried about is red, and this adds more versatility.

Obsidian Fireheart is an okay card, but his damage triggers happen on other players turns, so it won't net you Mana. Stuffy Doll may fit better with all the quake spells.

I believe Howl of the Horde would be an upgrade to Reverberate.

Plate and greaves may let you abuse Fortune Thief. Might be maybeboard worthy, since you'll be nuking yourself with quake spells.

Ruination is inexpensive and can be more punishing than Blood Moon, but that effect is good enough to have both cards in a deck.

You'll be making a ton of mana. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth seems good. Prototype Portal and Mirari as well. Just more maybeboard stuff.

That's all for now, lemme know how it goes with your playgroup.
