Neotrup on Guardian Beast and temporary theft

No, and losing control of them isn't a trigger. Hijack generates a limited duration control changing effect. Once the duration of the effect ends, control of the creature returns to whoever controlled it previously. What Guardian Beast does is prevent control changing effects from being applied to artifacts you already control.

If you have a Guardian Beast and use e.g. Hijack to gain control of a noncreature artifact an opponent controls, will Guardian Beast prevent the end of turn trigger that causes you to lose control of the stolen artifact?

I prefer Wrangle to Hijack since other than Gurmag Angler there aren't very many large creatures being used.

Neotrup on Nightmare vs Hijack

1 month ago

Nightmare's power and toughness are each equal to the number of swamps controlled by it's controller while it's on the stack or battlefield, and by it's owner if it is in any other zone. This means that if while it's on the battlefield it's control changes (such as through Hijack) to a player who controls no swamps it will be a 0/0. A creature with 0 toughness is put into its owner's graveyard as a state based action. As it is no longer on the battlefield, it will not be returned at the end of turn when Hijack's control changing effect wears off.

My friend used Hijack and killed my Nightmare Because he has no any swamps. Is this normal? Thank you.

One thing I think you need to think about when building a mono-red deck is will your cards be good when top-decked late game with a clear board? Bonded Horncrest and Frenzied Raptor aren't. If I were you, I would replace them with 4 copies of Charging Monstrosaur. It's a great late game finisher and good budget replacement for glorybringer.

Also, I would sideboard those scavenger grounds, and add in either more mountains or Sunscorched Deserts.Same thing for abrade. Shock is always useful?

Last thing, my favorite mono-red combo that I use in my standard RDW deck is Hijack + Fling. No one ever expects the fling.

Quicksilver Amulet - you have like 11 creatures over CMC 4 and can use it to flash stuff in.

Belbe's Portal - pretty much same as above.

Might also consider some creature cost reducers as well, like Urza's Incubator, Semblance Anvil, or Herald's Horn. Especially since you say you want to cast stuff free but don't really have many creature cheaters, nor cmc reducers in the deck.

Mirage Mirror - Works awesome with Sunbird's Invocation, but also with your creatures to give you an instant copy of a fatty as needed, as well as a few creature abilities (especially Combat Celebrant!). Plus lets you also copy opponents stuff too to use their own stuff against them. "Nice Wound Reflection you have there..." And if you know how to play it on the stack properly you can use it to get multiple effects in a turn for things.

Prophetic Prism seems like a waste in a mono deck.

Eye of Ugin (which also helps with eldrazi searching), Sanctum of Ugin, Eldrazi Temple - why no eldrazi lands? :D

Mimic Vat - Oh no, they killed one of your titans! Or something cool that has an ETB, or other ability. Good thing you can make a copy of it, but with haste, for a turn, at instant speed. Or maybe they have something cool you killed off that you want...

I prefer Hijack to something like Portent of Betrayal because it's nice to also be able to take an artifact, not just a creature.

Rogue's Passage - let your fatties just walk on through.

Quietus Spike - because it's fun to be a dick :D

I have a BU Vela deck, Vela's toys bring her pleasure and you pain, that's built on cheating out artifacts and creatures. While it's not like your deck (though I originally used Eldrazi instead of artifact creatures in orig version), it may give you some more ideas for how to cheat in stuff.

Also, don't skip decks in the "Advertise your COMMANDER deck!" thread ;)
