Gustha's Scepter Discussion

Eurgiga on Moon art cards for Princess ...

A few I haven't seen yet:

Couple tips when looking for moons: Both actual moons and moon symbols count, so keep an eye out for moons on things like books, texts, and manufactured things in the art. There is no limit on how small they can be, though it's obvious it has to be large enough to make out. Some cards have very small, very sneaky moons hidden in them this way.

Thanks for the suggestions triproberts12. The Gustha's Scepter idea is pretty cool and would be a nice way to get around losing cards I don't want to lose. I did have Goblin Lore and Burning Inquiry in the deck, but the random discard was too, get this, unpredictable. Rakdos, the Showstopper is sweet, but I think I would need Krark's Thumb for him. Urza's Incubator would obviously be good, not sure what to cut for it, maybe Jet Medallion .

I'm glad you're not being "that guy." If the plan isn't to make empty hands hurt equally all around, though, there's a couple cards you can include to make it hurt less for you: Gustha's Scepter allows you to stash away your reanimation cards so you don't have to discard them, and it's completely mana free! Mindstorm Crown is another copy of Phyrexian Arena . I'd also run the new Rakdos, the Showstopper , Patriarch's Bidding , and Urza's Incubator , since you're going demon tribal.

Gustha's Scepter and Library of Leng seem like good additions to this list.

Wow, Malfegor is kinda hard to work around. Lol, you want hand manipulation I'd think so maybe something like Gustha's Scepter to save a wheel?

I think Crucible of Worlds, Oversold Cemetery, Squee, Goblin Nabob would all be good.

Gustha's Scepter and Ice Cauldron are great cards for any deck that does a lot of wheeling. Plus even if you remove ice cauldron, you can still play the exiled cards.

I usually use a suite of artifacts help offset discard effects like Neheb's: Fool's Tome, Bottled Cloister, and Gustha's Scepter.

With a deck like Bulls on Parade, I'd be far more concerned with the near-constant loss of life from cards like Phyrexian Reclamation, Blood Scrivener, and Asylum Visitor. I've used Trading Post and Urborg Syphon-Mage in the past to gain and still stay on-theme.

Also, I've had far more luck with Chain of Smog over Delirium Skeins, especially in multiplayer. Good luck hellbending!
