Glaring Spotlight Discussion

Bovine073 on The Pillowest Fort Possible

legendofa, does Crystalline Sliver + an additional Xenograft (or just name Changeling on xenograft) be able to stop Archetype of Endurance and/or Glaring Spotlight?

Instead of the sliver, you could also use Hanna's Custody, Fountain Watch, or Indomitable Archangel. The custody has the advantage of not dying to boardwipes.

chaosumbreon87 you can't kill your Aura Theif with those cards because they are activated abilities (Stony Silence). Even if you did, Rest in Peace would stop the trigger.

Oh okay, I guess I tunnel visioned on the ultimate of Dovin Baan. The +1 and -1 are both awesome in their own right, as you said. The unblockable thing makes sense, the only qualm I have with that is that I dont have too many commander's, but I do plan on putting some money into this deck. I think I just need some hexproofing to be honest. But im going to try to get better value out of it, like with Archetype of Endurance or Glaring Spotlight. Anything just to stop simple control spells from scrapping mu commander.

Ashnod's Altar and Evolutionary Leap are a few extra sacrifice outlets for you, using them in conjunction with an equipped Thornbite Staff can allow for some ridiculous shenanigans. There's also Glaring Spotlight, Bonds of Mortality and Arcane Lighthouse if you have trouble with hexproof and shroud blocking Rubina's effect :)

Good luck with the building! (I kinda want to make this myself now :P )

nice +1I would defiantly recommend Blightsteel Colossus, Damnation, Caress of Phyrexia, Sword of Vengeance, Relic of Progenitus, Dismember, Glaring Spotlight and maybe some discard effects to make this deck more competitive if you can afford itmaybe a Homeward Path to stop your fatties from killing you.

endersblade; Thanks for the help. Champion's Helm is a little expensive, but if I can trade for it then I will include it. Mask of Avacyn is great, and that will go in the deck. Same for Glaring Spotlight.

If you want to run equipment that gives hexproof instead of shroud, the other two good ones are Champion's Helm and Mask of Avacyn. There are also enchantments like Asceticism. If you're going for budged though, the Mask is by far the cheapest.

There is also Glaring Spotlight, which can do what Arcane Lighthouse does, and in a pinch, a one turn Asceticism.

Sweet deck! I didn't realize how interesting Yasova was to me until I started thinking of ways to use her ability better.

I see you have Willbreaker, letting you keep the creatures you temporarily steal. Some other options for keeping these creatures past the end of the turn could be Conjurer's Closet, Deadeye Navigator, Synod Sanctum, Cold Storage, Nephalia Smuggler, and Ghostly Flicker, which all return creatures back under your control without you having to return them to their owners.

You could also use Hellkite Charger, Breath of Fury, or World at War to trigger Yasova's ability multiple times per turn.

With Glaring Spotlight, you can steal your opponents' creatures that have hexproof. To steal your opponents' noncreature artifacts, try turning them into creatures with options like Toymaker and Titania's Song, and to steal your opponents' noncreature lands, try turning them into creatures with Lifespark Spellbomb or Quirion Druid.

Land suggestions include Command Tower, Frontier Bivouac, Rootbound Crag, Opal Palace, Lumbering Falls, Temple of Abandon, Temple of Mystery, Vivid Crag, Vivid Creek, and Vivid Grove.

If you don't want to give the creatures back after you've stolen them, you can use sacrifice effect cards to get rid of them for profit. Some powerful sacrifice engines include Ashnod's Altar, Culling Dais, Barrin, Master Wizard, Bloodshot Cyclops, Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Profaner of the Dead, Scourge of Skola Vale, Evolutionary Leap, Goblin Bombardment, Perilous Forays, Shivan Harvest, Momentous Fall, High Market, Life's Legacy, and Primal Growth.

To make your opponents' creatures easier to steal, you can use power-reduction cards such as Cumber Stone, Schismotivate, Downsize, Dampening Pulse, or Agoraphobia.

You can also make opponents' creatures easier to steal by increasing Yasova's power, with any of these or other boosting cards: Kessig Wolf Run, Ceta Disciple, Llanowar Augur, Moonveil Dragon, Ursapine, Wolfir Silverheart, Bonesplitter, Hero's Blade, O-Naginata, Ring of Kalonia, Sai of the Shinobi, Shuko, Sigil of Distinction, Silver-Inlaid Dagger, Sword of the Chosen, Boar Umbra, Briar Shield, Elephant Guide, Exoskeletal Armor, Forced Adaptation, Giant Spectacle, Goblin War Paint, Inferno Fist, Madcap Skills, Moldervine Cloak, Mythic Proportions, Quest for the Gemblades, Rancor, Seal of Strength, Shape of the Wiitigo, Spectral Flight, Spider Umbra, Taste for Mayhem, Volcanic Strength, Wurmweaver Coil, Blossoming Defense, Brute Force, Giant Growth, Groundswell, Invigorate, Might of Oaks, Mutagenic Growth, Prey's Vengeance, Strength of the Tajuru, Wax/Wane, Blessings of Nature, Elven Rite, Give / Take, Increasing Savagery, Phytoburst, Reckless Charge, and Soul's Might
