Glissa Sunseeker Discussion

Boza on Did Karn Infect Any Other ...

Mirrodin was actually created by Karn - it is an artificial plane. However, he always carried a bit of phyrexian oil with him that corrupted many on Mirrodin - Glissa Sunseeker was one of the custodians of the plane, but she became Glissa, the Traitor . Memnarch was the original custodian, but the oil drove him mad.

The oil worked best on Mirrodin, because it was artificial - flesh and Phyresis do not mix well. It is entirely possible that other planes may have been infected, but the unique characteristics of Mirrodin place it the most likely for the oil to live long and prosper.^^_^^

Glissa Sunseeker to keep artifacts in check. Urban Burgeoning has done me good in my Kruphix Eldrazi deck. Put it on Simic Growth Chamber or Temple of the False God or even better Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Void Grafter should be helpful protecting a choice creature. Bounty of the Luxa would go great in here as well.

I don't have issue fighting artifact decks.
Knight of Autumn, Reclamation Sage, Glissa Sunseeker (for recursive targeted removal), Cataclysmic Gearhulk (for boardwipe - effectively 3 mana) is plenty to fight artifacts, not to mention some additional stuff that can come in like Gaddock Teeg & Acidic Slime in specific circumstances.

What i have trouble is beating t3 pop Oblivion Stone, into t4 Karn Liberated, into t5 Karn Liberated - yeah the second karn got me :P - the thing is that against the WAST MAJORITY of deck if they don't interact with my combo they are DEAD.
As they have literal nothing that could save them.

Same about UWx control.
I am not "so to speak" dead in the matchup - i just miss a way to win via the combo.

And i still not see why its a wise idea to completely ditch my well functioning sideboard, to improve on a ~50/50% and a ~45-55% matchup.

Yes, i could have 4x Stony Silence & 4x Choke in the sideboard to combat tron and UWx control, however that obviously eats up sidebaord space pretty fast.

I would replace Nullmage Shepherd with Glissa Sunseeker, Both are better in their own scenarios, but I think Glissa comes out on top most of the time. She is not reliant upon having multiple creatures, the downside is Nullmage Shepherd can tap 8 creatures to destroy two targets at once. And it can hit enchantments while Glissa cannot.

I got curious, so I poked around a little and found this collection of known planeswalkers. (Sorry, I don't have links enabled.)

Anyway, new guild ability for Orzhov, Gruul, or Simic.

Pound Down


Buildup-Target creature you control gets +1/+0 for each unspent mana you have.

Inspired by Glissa Sunseeker, and I think there's some unexplored space there. It would definitely need careful tracking and mana control.

Create an Orzhov foot soldier.

One other point no one has mentioned--personality seems to play a large role in your powers and abilities in the MTG universe. Who you are influences what kinds of mana you can use. Fundamental shifts in personality, such as Garruk's being cursed or Glissa Sunseeker becoming Glissa, the Traitor, can influence what powers and abilities a planeswalker or creature has access to. Often this means adding to something to make it more "evil", or to something to make it more "good."

As for your question, The_Sorcerer, about why each character is so laser focused on certain abilities, that's an easy question to answer. The Magic story is usually written by a collection of different people, with widely varying degrees of talent (more often bad than good). Keeping the characters laser focused on certain abilities (Chandra is Fire! Burn! Emotions!) and incredibly basic personality traits helps add to consistency in the story and makes the characters easier to work with for mediocre writers.

You cannot do that - it would interact toxicly with Glissa Sunseeker and Pygmy Hippo (in multiplayer).

Also, with Dominaria, Wizards stopped using Mana Pool in mana abilities. It would just be: Add .

Maybe slot in Glissa Sunseeker, tap her and a coating to just blow something up, or an Isochron Scepter or two for the artifact instant killers.
