Glaring Spotlight Discussion

HezTheGod on Ouch that hurts

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.

DaringApprentice on Hope You Didn't Want That

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

Roil Elemental and Callous Oppressor also benefits from from blinking the same way silugmar does.

Thalakos Deceiver will most likely steal something if it isn't killed beforeit attacks.

Glaring Spotlight is needed to deal with hexproof.

Mind's Dilation and Expropriate are just fun, and strong.

Desertion is another fun counter spell, that can steal a creature or artifact

Clone can be upgraded to either Clever Impersonator or even just Stunt Double

Thought Vessel and Sol Ring would both be good.

There are also some questionable cards in here, like Butcher of Malakir, Overseer of the Damned, Sphinx of Uthuun.

You could find better versions of Bloodgift Demon, Possessed Skaab, Charcoal Diamond, Sky Diamond, and Ur-Golem's Eye

Also there are better Mind Control like cards than what you have, that are also cheaper mana wise. I would say that the best one you have is Corrupted Conscience

I also think Trinket Mage isn't that useful for this deck, not that many targets.

I see no Glaring Spotlight... Perhaps I need a week and a half of sleep, but perhaps YOU need a $0.20 one-drop. I've got it in my own deck for purposes of stealing things, and I can say for sure that you would have trouble getting around my Asceticism without it. It also acts as a convenient wincon.

Vortexflame on Kalitas Kills All the Things

Glaring Spotlight might help with killing Hexproof creatures. Sadistic Glee and Eternal Thirst are good alongside Kalitas' ability. Thought Gorger doesn't seem to help you too much, given that your Commander doesn't get any benefit from you discarding your hand, so consider swapping it out for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (assuming this isn't budget). Ob Nixilis Reignited also seems like it would be a good fit for your deck. In Commander, your opponents will almost always opt to pay 3 life to Indulgent Tormentor, so you'd be better off running Underworld Connections if you want card draw. Exhume will help your opponents more than it will you, because your commander is meant to put their creatures in the graveyard and bringing them back won't help you. Consider Illusionist's Bracers.

Vortexflame on The Holy Hand Grenade

This is an amazing combination, but you don't have enough Valor Made Reals. Consider using Entangler instead. Godsend might be a way for Shaman en-Kor to remove attackers, even while the Priest of Penance is not on the battlefield. Glaring Spotlight can prevent your opponents from protecting themselves from your combo, and then be used as a Mother of Runes for your whole field for one turn. Seeing as though you have a pillow fort deck here that relies on killing attackers, consider Blood Artist. Sadistic Glee might be a better Eternal Thirst. Your whole deck rides on a certain combo. Consider using a Diabolic Tutor to set up said combo. All in all, this is an amazing deck.
