Melira, Sylvok Outcast Discussion

enpc on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

What that is referring to is the resolution of the ability. When you activate the ability it goes on the stack and checks just before it resolves, however you have to still have a legal target to put hte ability on the stack in the first place.

The reason for the check is that due to the nature of having a stack, something could happen to the target of the ability between activating it and the ability resolving. For example, say you had Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Aerie Ouphes and Garruk's Packleader all in play and your opponent had a Birds of Paradise.

In this scenario, you could sac the ouphe, targetting the BoP. In response, the persist trigger would go on the stack and would return the Ouphe with no coutners on it thanks to Melira. Then the packleader draw trigger would go on the stack. You could let that resolve and draw a card, and then in response to the Ouphe trigger that's still on the stack repeat this process to draw your deck, however it's very situational. But once the stack of Ouphe triggersattempts to resolve, he first one will as the BoP is on the battlefiedl, however once the next one (and all the ones after it) try to resolve, as the BoP is already dead they will fizzle. And you can't activate the loop again until you have another legal target.

Most cost creatures die as soon as they come in with Solemnity, but not with Melira, Sylvok Outcast. They effectively enter as if they were cast with X=0 in the first case and regularly in the second case. I'm not entirely sure what you're seeing as broken or if there's another point that needs clearing up.

Side note: 112.6h doesn't affect how Melira, Sylvok Outcast enters the battlefield. Because that ability doesn't only affect Melira, herself, you don't take it into account when trying to figure out how she enters the battlefield.

So I was looking at a discussion about Melira, Sylvok Outcast and someone pulled up this rule:

"112.6h An object's ability that states counters can't be placed on that object functions as that object is entering the battlefield in addition to functioning while that object is on the battlefield."

If this is true, shouldn't 0/0 creatures with etb abilities that would keep them from dying as they hit still die? For instance, if someone casts Solemnity and I cast Genesis Hydra, the cast ability would trigger, the etb would trigger, and Solemnity would trigger. But if the etb ability is affected by Solemnity, wouldn't Genesis Hydra die with or without Solemnity in play?

Persist doesn't put the counters on the creatures, they enter with the counters. Same for Undying. Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Vizier of Remedies, and Solemnity prevent counters from being put on things, not from existing.

my persist deck would wreck this deck. my deck's commander is Melira, Sylvok Outcast which makes my persist creatures immortal and you infect creatures useless

Wondering about Melira, Sylvok Outcast, have you actually had good combos with her? I can see the reasoning on the Finks combo, but since Infect is mostly dead right now, has it done you well? Just curious.

Maybe Include like 2 Wall of Roots in your mainboard- interacts well with chord. You want a lot of dorks for chord. Also, I'd include a standalone good 5 drop to grab with evolution like Sigarda, Host of Herons. Perhaps add Gaddock Teeg to your sideboard toolbox. If you want a sweeper creature in your toolbox, maybe Cataclysmic Gearhulk instead of Inferno Titan. It's hard to fetch 6 drops. You could probably drop some of the more useless creatures in your sideboard like Melira, Sylvok Outcast (nobody really plays infect any more), or leyline of sanctity (you already have a decent burn match-up courtesy of Kitchen Finks and Lightning Helix) for Rest in Peace. The only graveyard interaction I see is Scooze, which often isn't enough.
