Gaea's Anthem Discussion

Unbelievalee on Battalion of Centaurs (Part I: The first clash)

3 months ago

First of all, I would replace Angelic Gift With either Gryff's Boon or Rancor , just like you said in the description. Why? Because Rampage of the Clans would destroy it, and it gets returned to your hand/battlefield whatsoever. Then, I would highly recommend a few copies of Collected Company , since it can be cast in an opponent's turn. Did it occur to you that red als also some great centaurs? For example, Burning-Tree Shaman , Stonebrow, Krosan Hero , Nikya of the Old Ways and Fanatic of Xenagos . Utopia Sprawl is in my opinion better than Verdant Haven . Then there's Conclave Cavalier , which is totally bonkers, although that strategy would not be effective when running Collected Company . Rosemane Centaur is also a good addition, but mainly if you run lower CMC creatures. And even though Genesis is not a centaur, flavourwise it would be a nice addition to this list. Maybe one copy of Fated Intervention for some instant-speed pressure. Tribalwise, I would highly recommend Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton to replace the Stoneforge Masterwork , and you can even sacrifice them to Rampage of the Clans , for more value/pressure. Maybe a Mirror Entity to boost your crew in mid/lategame? If your having trouble getting the right creatures at the right time, maybe Eladamri's Call would be a nice tutor in this list. For fun, I would maybe even run a copy of Descendants' Path . You could also add some artifacts that suit nicely in any tribal deck. Think of cards like Icon of Ancestry , Obelisk of Urd , Bow of Nylea , Eldrazi Monument or maybe even Coat of Arms . Maybe even add a Selesnya Signet for fixing. All artifacts which you can even sacrifice to Rampage of the Clans . Also consider some Changelings, since they're basically just Centaurs... Chameleon Colossus . You could also add Oath of the Ancient Wood , if you're planning on running this amount of enchantments/auras. Then there's lands. I realize you want to keep this list budget, that's ok, in your case I would still run several Canopy Vista , Fortified Village , Temple of Plenty , Mutavault (which is a centaur), or Oran-Rief, the Vastwood . Chronicler of Heroes goes nicely with Lagonna-Band Trailblazer . Centaur Omenreader is also a pretty solid card by simple making your creatures cost 2 less when it's tapped. You also need cardadvantage. Think of cards like Harmonize . Also, in this meta, you'll need some hard removal. Think of cards like Dismember , Path to Exile , Generous Gift or Beast Within . You can also consider some allround lords and anthem effects. Maybe cards like Wilt-Leaf Liege , Always Watching , Glorious Anthem , Gaea's Anthem , Radiant Destiny , Hall of Triumph , Force of Virtue , Beastmaster Ascension or Collective Blessing . Maybe even a Song of Freyalise ? Yet again, all cards you can eventually sacrifice for Rampage of the Clans . You could even add some retrieval in this list, think of cards like Noxious Revival , Regrowth or Eternal Witness . Sideboard wise, I would highly recommend cards like Rest in Peace , Stony Silence , Dryad Militant , Krosan Grip , Damping Sphere , Grafdigger's Cage , Leyline of Sanctity .

This is it for now. When anything relevant comes up, I will let you know.

Keep up the good work.

How about:

The Trickster UURR
Legendary Creature - Shapeshifter

You may have ~ ETB as a copy of any creature. When this creature enters the battlefield, if its toughness is 0 or less, you may copy target instant or sorcery. You may choose new targets for the copy.


That way it can be a clone, or if you choose not copy anything (and provided no other variables such as Gaea's Anthem ), you get a Fork . This way you avoid some of the tricky languange of the original while keeping a similar functionality. Plus it works better into the tricker's flavor - this way, the choice between creature and spell is made on resolution, while in the OG version, the choice is made as part of the casting process, thus giving you better options to be a trickster.

Ravenrose on selvala, hunting for big boys

Sort your grammar out por favor. Es muy irritante. Pero yo penso que su deck es muy efficiente. I think you need to take out Vorinclex before our entire group hates you out of the game (preators need to be hated out anyway) and maybe add in a Hydra Omnivore if you wish to continue to be Mr. Evil Number 2 (Nick has Number 1, sorry). You might want to consider Gaea's Anthem and Gaea's Revenge . It also won't hurt to add Petalmane Baku . It is cute but can be quite dangerous.

Thanks Darth_Savage for the feedback! I've considered the creatures you mentioned before, and the reason I didn't add them was that I'm trying to build my decks on a budget of 30$. (I'm planning on buying a deck soon and I want my first deck to be a custom one). But I've opted to swap some creatures out so that I can add Bramblewood Paragon . I think you're right regarding Gaea's Anthem and I'm gonna switch out for something suitable. I think that Bramblewood Paragon + Hunting Triad will make a good combo in the new edit.

Kogarashi on Exalted Trigger on Noble Hierarch ...

1 year ago

It's specifically because Noble Hierarch's ability is a triggered ability, not a static ability. The Hierarch's ability checks that the condition was met (a creature attacked alone), and applies its effect once and is done. Removing it doesn't undo that.

Anthem effects, on the other hand, such as Gaea's Anthem, are constantly checking and applying, and thus if you remove that permanent, the effect goes away.

Kogarashi on Planeswalker ability effects new tokens?

And for further clarification between the two effects, from the comprehensive rules:

611.2c If a continuous effect generated by the resolution of a spell or ability modifies the characteristics or changes the controller of any objects, the set of objects it affects is determined when that continuous effect begins. After that point, the set won’t change. (Note that this works differently than a continuous effect from a static ability.) A continuous effect generated by the resolution of a spell or ability that doesn’t modify the characteristics or change the controller of any objects modifies the rules of the game, so it can affect objects that weren’t affected when that continuous effect began. If a single continuous effect has parts that modify the characteristics or changes the controller of any objects and other parts that don’t, the set of objects each part applies to is determined independently.

Example: An effect that reads “All white creatures get +1/+1 until end of turn” gives the bonus to all permanents that are white creatures when the spell or ability resolves—even if they change color later—and doesn’t affect those that enter the battlefield or turn white afterward.

Example: An effect that reads “Prevent all damage creatures would deal this turn” doesn’t modify any object’s characteristics, so it’s modifying the rules of the game. That means the effect will apply even to damage from creatures that weren’t on the battlefield when the continuous effect began. It also affects damage from permanents that become creatures later in the turn.

In this case, Sarkhan's first ability is not a static ability, it's activated, so it gives the bonus to all creatures Sarkhan's controller controls when the ability is activated, and won't affect those that enter the battlefield or come under his control later (see the first example). Gaea's Anthem, on the other hand, has a static ability that grants the boost, which is covered by rule 611.3:

611.3a A continuous effect generated by a static ability isn’t “locked in”; it applies at any given moment to whatever its text indicates.

Kogarashi on Planeswalker ability effects new tokens?

Ruling from the Gatherer:

10/1/2008: Sarkhan Vol's first ability affects only creatures you control when that ability resolves.

So your argument at the time was correct. Only creatures under your opponent's control at the time that he activated Sarkhan's first ability would receive the boost.

If it were a continuous effect like on Gaea's Anthem, then the token would have received the boost as well, but continuous effects like that will (usually) only be found on permanents like enchantments, creatures, or artifacts, or on emblems, not gained through one-off things like sorceries, instants, or activated abilities.

Unfortunately gets blown out by Radiant Flames. I guess I could try Gaea's Anthem and/or Glorious Anthem in the board to boost toughness above 3.
