Heat Shimmer


Put a token into play that's a copy of target creature. It has haste and "At end of turn, remove this permanent from the game."

Heat Shimmer Discussion

Hi lexavian! Yeah Zada is really neat to target with flicker spells, it flickers all your allies! Stuff like Heat Shimmer, Twinflame, and Cackling Counterpart are good with both Zada and General Tazri too.

Anyways, you can reply on your deck's page. I like to tag the person I'm talking to like so: [^[^user: onehitterquiter^]^] (without the carrots). You can tag cards that way too, by putting "card: " instead of user.

ay.lobo: I appreciate that's it's a older discussion, however Twinflame is generally the goto over Heat Shimmer as it reduces the cost of the combo by one. It also has the benefit (especially in an ETB heavy deck) of copying multiple targets to get more value.

Reading your primer, I'm trying to figure out why you're not running any infinite combos. You just say they're not used, but don't elude to why. Since you're already running Dualcaster Mage and since Twinflame would do work in your deck by itself, it seems like an auto include. However if you're not running combos (you mentioned that you weren't) it would be good to know the reasoning why.

FireRogue Oh yeah, good call! Sorry, I never did fix that. So have a creature out first. Then have Heat Shimmer target creature. While Heat Shimmer is on the stack, have Dualcaster Mage target Heat Shimmer. Heat Shimmer targets Dualcaster Mage for the infinite loop. Thanks for catching that, I knew I forgot something! :D

Why Heat Shimmer over Twinflame?

Waiting for Godo - cEDH primer TonyS's Primer is better, There is a lot of unexplored stuff in this list, and very not-optimised. The blade of selves backup isn't worth the dead cardslots, and you aren't even running Twinflame Heat Shimmer, Magnetic Theft etc
