Halls of Mist Discussion

Here's how it works:

Start with Disciple of the Vault and Sharuum the Hegemon out. Cast either Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph , and have it enter as a copy of Sharuum. Legendary rule kicks in, you have to put one in the graveyard. Then, after it's in the graveyard, fake-Sharuum's etb triggered ability goes on the stack, allowing you to return an artifact from your graveyard to the battlefield. Choose the fake-Sharuum that just hit the yard, and it re-enters, allowing the loop. The Disciple of the Vault is there to convert the constant leaves-the-battlefield into life loss. There are a couple of variations and substitutions possible, but this is the basic version.

I'd like to try Halls of Mist and Silent Arbiter in a Turbofog-ish control deck and annoy the token spammers.

Thanks to you, legendofa! I'm still messing around w/ the deck and will update it again tomorrow... don't have copies of either of the cards you suggested yet, but would I need to have Salvaging Station in play as well for your plan to work? I "stole" the Lich+Coil combo from another T/O user, but as far as I know Halls of Mist with Silent Arbiter was invented by me :D

I did want to adjust life totals by odd numbers, hence the usage of Chandra and Koth. But maybe you’re right.

And my thinking on keeping the creature count light was to keep avoid collateral damage from Repercussion and my mass removal. But I may only end up getting punched in the face for twenty by Wood Elves and Trinket Mages, so you could be on to something.

I had considered other control elements, like Mudslide, Halls of Mist, and Maze of Ith. I guess I have to think long and hard about where I want to take this deck —- more control, or aggro.

Thanks for the link to that search! I already see some cards I forgot about.

If you’re still going with a sac theme I’d consider playing Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest.

Some cards I’ve found quite useful are Aether Spellbomb, Glacial Chasm, Halls of Mist, Urza's Bauble, Mishra's Bauble, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Mirror Image, Phantasmal Image, River Kelpie, and Night Incarnate.

How about some useless land like Glacial Chasm and Halls of Mist? They are great targets for Shifting Borders. If you are more concerned about gaining the life and drawing the cards than harming your opponents' land bases, you could throw in a few Wastes or a Radiant Fountain. Rainbow Vale is a must-have. Make sure to only use it at the end of an opponent's turn so they don't pass it back to you. I like the deck!
