Glaring Spotlight Discussion

nobu_the_bard on Rubinia Soulsinger as a commander?

5 days ago

I can't play my Ruby deck too often, its removal is a bit too efficient if she gets going and it's oppressive. The "search opponent's library" cards are alright but they were a little too expensive for me to experiment with; I suspect though, based on how the rest of the deck went, they'd make it overwhelming. Some things I was using with her though:

City of Shadows + Prophet of Kruphix + Rubinia Soulsinger lets you steal+exile a creature every turn, while building up counters on the city. In case you needed more mana? This very quickly, when I was playing it, prevented anyone from getting creatures into play and keeping them for a couple rounds (I also had Glaring Spotlight and Karn, Silver Golem in play).

Karn, Silver Golem + Rubinia Soulsinger lets you steal artifacts.

Djinn of Infinite Deceits + Rubinia Soulsinger lets you shuffle the board around; though note the Djinn can't trade Legendary creatures. Ruby borrows a 1/1 token and you trade it up for a Darksteel Colossus or whtaever.

Assault Suit + Rubinia Soulsinger gets weird. You can pass around somebody's creature even if you let Rubinia's control lapse, since the ability to pass things around is part of the suit, and the controller of the creature doesn't control the suit.

Eretoryi I considered them and i agree with mana ramp, but i cant decide what i should take out. Any suggestions? Maybe Glaring Spotlight and Forced Adaptation. Also do you think Gemhide Sliver would be useful, because it can attack and block

Just saw your post. Unfortunately, I'm holding onto Brimaz, King of Oreskos to swap for bigger pieces, rather than turning him into smaller pieces. If the Sorin, Solemn Visitor becomes available, which I should find out later today (and you still need it), I could do that for a pair of Dig Through Times, a Glaring Spotlight, and Oona, Queen of the Fae. That puts me over by about $1.50, and I don't have anything else on your wants list. Would you be open to me ordering a Rest in Peace for you to make up the difference? (That would, I think, make us about even)

I would look into some split cards such as Wear and Tear. Also some amazing sideboard cards are Pithing Needle and Glaring Spotlight.

  • Birds of Paradise, this form of ramp is out of place in this deck.
  • Plague Boiler, too slow
  • Forced March, done by enough other better cards (Gaze/Ratchet/Pernicious)
  • Wave of Terror, more likely to hurt your own creatures more. Dont have too many wipes, you need your own board presence as well.
  • Devour Flesh, plenty of other sacrifice cards that dont benefit your opponent, including the vastly superior Geth's Verdict

Archetype of Endurance, Arcane Lighthouse, Glaring Spotlight are all good cards. Hexproof is good, and you also want to prevent your opponents from gaining it since your commander relies on targeting.

Martial Coup would really help you, especially in the event of swarm strategies.

There's little in white help you blow up the board in case you need to; most of that's in black.

That, and it's an alt win con mid to late game.

Other boardwipes to consider...

Planar Collapse. Use with Geist off the field; they get a turn to answer it, but otherwise, they're hosed.

Retribution of the Meek. In case of large creatures, or creatures that buff themselves or others.

Vengeful Dreams. Though it requires discarding, this can get you out of a jam. Use with Glaring Spotlight or Arcane Lighthouse to get past the shroud/hexproof issue.

Finally, Harsh Mercy. This one is situational because it's bad against tribal decks and can backfire.

P.S.: For funzies, maybe throw in Masterwork of Ingenuity or Sculpting Steel in order to copy your equipment...
