King Macar, the Gold-Cursed Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Card creation challenge

As Hexaflexagon pointed out, looking at an opponent's hand is very powerful. I tend to forget the potency of being able to do this as I tend to build hyper-aggressive removal decks, falling in the realm of Rakdos, Jund, and Gruul. I let you play your spells, than get rid of them.

But that is a good point that advanced knowledge is always more powerful than responsive tactics.

Skulk.

When Derelict Swindler enters the battlefield or dies, target opponent reveals three cards from their hand at random.

Always on the prowl, some seek out danger purely for the adrenaline.

1/1


Three cards in the entire game make Gold Tokens.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Gild, and the recently made Curse of Opulence.

Make another card that fits how these three work, so that Modern can have fun making Gild decks.

Sorry for all these multiple posts in a row, I don't think I'm able to edit my comments.

Witch Engine

Does King Macar, the Gold-Cursed count as a mana dork?

hey infernogaming, yeah, the deck is definitely on the gimmicky side and can be made a lot more competetive. (adding some tutoring for example) i would not cut any of the mana rocks since dimir has a hard time ramping efficiently. you don't need any expensive lands at all for a deck to perform well, especially in multiplayer, so no harm in replacing those. generally in multiplayer i would stick with 10 cards ramp 10 cards draw. if you want to cut go for the synergy cards: King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Tree of Perdition and replace them with some removal or counterspell cards of your choice. hope that helps.

Hey, always wanted to try a Phenax deck myself. Given his tap for mill ability seems like it would be your most consistent mill effect, why not try some cards that gain bonus from tapping like these cards with "inspired" ability: Arbiter of the Ideal, Daring Thief, Disciple of Deceit, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Servant of Tymaret, Siren of the Silent Song, and Sphinx's Disciple would be some good ones to look into.

Any good walls would also work for your commanders ability and there are numerous merfolk that have mill abilities (pretty sure most are budget friendly).

Also things that untap your creatures are a godsend (get it?). Paradox Engine and Staff of Domination are the most powerful ones I can think of, but probably not budget friendly. Otherwise there's Magewright's Stone, Umbral Mantle, and Sword of the Paruns as some other options. Blue also has a ton of untap effects, too.

As for what to take out?....Well to be honest, I think I listed too many things. I guess just think of these things as ideas to ponder on. I would suggest removing Tetzimoc, Primal Death for King Macar, the Gold-Cursed though for your creature removal.

No Panharmonicon? King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is great at removal and fits the power requirements.

SmugLookingBarrel on Can you cast Zahid, Djinn ...

2 months ago

Specifically, can you both tap an artifact to satisfy Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp's "tap an untapped artifact you control" and also sacrifice that same artifact for the 4 mana needed?

Similarly, could you do it with three lands and a gold token from King Macar, the Gold-Cursed?
