Glaring Spotlight Discussion

Loyalty on Goblins Tremor's. (Help welcomed).

14 hours ago

Love me some goblins. A great way to get more damage through with decks like this are cards such as Hellrider and my favourite, Purphoros, God of the Forge. Even though this is a budget build if I were to splash some money that's probably where it'd go. T4, purphoros and then T5 Dragon Fodder, Hordeling Outburst is 10 damage alone. Hammer of Purphoros would also be useful as haste is awesome.

Some removal would be useful too. Goblin Grenade fits well.

Only other thing I'd suggest is adding a sideboard to better your chance of winning more matchups. Some pretty useful budget cards are Rending Volley, Vandalblast (Shattering Spree would be better) and Glaring Spotlight (The unblockable part would be super useful with all your tokens).

I feel like you could be abusing your commanders effect a bit more in this deck like with these Executioner's Capsule, Glaring Spotlight, and Mind Stone.

To a certain extent Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact protect your permanents (against all but the most spell-based control decks).

Glaring Spotlight is a temporary effect, but acts as a nice deterrent. Same with Plaxmanta.

Veilstone Amulet seems pretty nice if you have some cheap instant speed stuff.

There's a load of other stuff that can give your board shroud if you combine it with effects like Conspiracy.

aznb01777: I've been on the fence about Grand Arbiter Augustin IV for a while. While I definitely see the benefit, unless I'm running him as the commander (which I've been considering for a while) he doesn't impact the game as much unless I draw him really early in the game. I am probably going to put a Copy Enchantment and Rhystic Study in though. Unfortunately Aura of Silence and Enchanted Evening aren't a real combo, since Enchanted Evening only affects permanents. I don't have a reason for not running Azorius Signet to be honest

NotSquishedYet: Maze of Ith + Silent Arbiter accomplishes the same thing actually. And Glaring Spotlight isn't something I'd considered. I might consider it.

Death9Reaper: Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer is a real card, yes. Mine just has a picture of Nicolas Cage taped to the front.

Came for the title. XD

If you're interested in a funny, effective combo, and have the space for it:

Ith, High Arcanist, Illusionist's Bracers/Rings of Brighthearth, Crawlspace "I can't be attacked" Unconditional.

Glaring Spotlight seems like an auto-include for shutting things down - things that are otherwise nigh impossible to do so to.

Made some changes... I think I've officially dropped all of my powerhouse wincons.

Who needs wincons... when you can use other peoples' wincons? :D

Ith, High Arcanist is a funny dude. Showed up and said nothing would happen. With Illusionist's Bracers and Crawlspace down, preferably including Arcane Lighthouse and/or Glaring Spotlight to deal with pesky creatures... well, surprisingly enough, nothing ever did happen.

Welcome Kaseto, Orochi Archmage for his political prowess and control over situations I'm not involved in. Also welcome Thada Adel, Acquisitor for when she needs called in against pesky decks.

Kaseto's good friend, Edric, Spymaster of Trest is on the block, asking if I'm really the one you want to attack here. Edric, now, brought the whole gang of Ephara, God of the Polis, Mentor of the Meek, and Selvala, Explorer Returned to a Rhystic Study of sorts, and he's thinking of bringing Reki, the History of Kamigawa to help out.

We found some dude in Nephalia who seemed to like messing with reality, so we put Nephalia Smuggler to work with Progenitor Mimic copying copies of itself copying copied other things until it could copy entire armies at once. Neat. People also seem to forget who they're allied with after a short trip through the interplanar Aether. Clever Impersonator wanted to join the fun, so an Angelic Shield was set up. Now the Progenitor's started copying entire armies of copiers, too. Because I really need 35 of everyone's nonlegendary everything.

Vesuvan Shapeshifter got in while everyone was drunk, and we let him stay for the card tricks. Strange guy, but you'll never hear a better knock-knock joke than when your Progenitus meets itself across the field and has a mid-life crisis because they can't touch each other.

I'm still considering many of the suggestions piled up under the deck - I haven't had much time to think beyond this, which I know I'd like to do. For the play-style of the deck, it might be noted that I rarely want to draw cards... the card draw is just a convenient bonus on occasion and a way of getting what I need to get what I actually want from my deck. The slow, high mana cost cards will almost always be cheated into play. If not, I'll tutor some stupid combo to somehow get them out of my hand.

Remember, I can do things like turn Muddle the Mixture into Eladamri's Call to tutor Drift of Phantasms and turn it into Wargate to land whatever I need, such as Eternal Witness to recur Wargate and grab a Sun Titan, kill the Eternal Witness, Wargate Birthing Pod, and Birthing Pod whatever to cheat Reya Dawnbringer into play, all using random spare mana between turns and one or two turns of mana for a solid advantage.

Angelic Accord is stupid with Ayli.

Hell's Caretaker is an auto-include. It does stupid things with Thornbite Staff.

Kokusho, the Evening Star got banned as a commander for good reason.

Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant could be convenient.

Tutors are nice.

Make sure to have contingencies so I don't do something stupid to you... I do that a lot. Can you answer Sterling Grove, Asceticism, Aegis of the Gods, Glaring Spotlight, Rubinia Soulsinger, Barrin, Master Wizard, Meddling Mage naming Ayli, and Empyrial Archangel plus a flipped Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant?

If the answer is a boardwipe, can you get rid of my Dovescape, and stop me getting infinite doves from it with Guile?

I mean none of this offensively - I'm just providing suggestions without much time to do it personally, and exemplifying the kind of situations you might occasionally run into and need to shut down.

Hope it helps! Most of my suggestions come from playing against my friend's Ayli EDH deck and helping him improve it.
