Neotrup on Necrotic Ooze and triggered effects

3 days ago

For Chainer, Dementia Master, Necrotic Ooze only gets the activated ability, the triggered ability of leaving isn't copied. This means you'll never lose the nightmares.

For Coffin Queen and Merieke Ri Berit the ability being copied includes a delayed triggered ability that will trigger when Necrotic Ooze becomes untapped (or when lose control of it/it dies), most likely on your next untap step as it doesn't copy the ability that allows it not to untap. The delayed triggered ability will then exile or destroy the creature.

Neotrup on When does curse of inertia ...

Yes. Curse of Inertia will trigger when you declare your attack and you'll be able to activate Merieke Ri Berit before blockers are declared. You will not be able to attack with the stolen creature even if you can give it haste, as you already declared attacks.

Temporal_Inept on Necrotic Ooze and triggered effects

Necrotic Ooze ruling states "If an activated ability of a card in a graveyard references the card its printed on by name, treat Necrotic Oozes version of that ability as though it referenced Necrotic Ooze by name instead." So, take for example three cards Chainer, Dementia Master, Coffin Queen and Merieke Ri Berit. Each of these allow you to take control of an opponent's creature but result in that creature being destroyed/exiled based on triggers. Does the Ooze get those triggered abilities as well? For example, on my opponent's end step I activate Coffin Queen's ability via the Ooze to put a creature from a graveyard onto the field under my control. At my untap step, the Ooze untaps. Is this still treated as being referenced by name i.e. "Coffin Queen" and the creature is exiled? or does it no longer apply and I keep the creature? Thanks

let's say i have a tapped Merieke Ri Berit, and it is my attack phase, can i attack with a creature then use Curse of Inertia to unTap merieke then steal a creature from an opponent?

ZendikariWol on Starting in Commander?

Arright let's get the easy stuff out of the way. Commanders. Instead of suggesting specific ones I'll give you some guidelines. A commander should be a creature that either:

1) you want to have on the battlefield constantly, or

2) you want to cast frequently.

There's also eminence, a la (Inalla, Archmage Ritualist).

Some considerations for you include

Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Damia, Sage of Stone, Dromar, the Banisher, Kess, dissident mage , and Merieke Ri Berit. Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge for combo.

More considerations

Multiplayer format- killing one player won't cut it. Turning heads is also typically bad. Don't get on everyone's bad side. Combos tend to be just out-of-nowhere enough that you need a good pillow fort to dissuade attackers.

Temporal_Inept on Merieke Ri Berit and Sydri, ...

How do Sydri, Galvanic Genius and Merieke Ri Berit interact? If Sydri, Galvanic Genius's first ability is used to turn an opponent's artifact into a artifact-creature and then Merieke Ri Berit 's ability is used to gain control of that artifact creature, does it return to the opponent's control at end of turn when it becomes an artifact again?

Merieke Ri Berit is my girl. She's the best in the color combination IMHO... does her old border matter for some reason I don't know about? I have my MBR deck on my profile page if you're interested..

SketchyScribbler on Let's Talk About Esper

Yo! Okay, so a little bit of a background to the question first.

My goal in Magic the Gathering is to make an EDH of every color combo possible, which I've done the mono and dual colored generals now, and now I'm moving on to the three colored generals.

Now I wanted to start with Esper, but to be honest the colors are really hard to sell for me and I have no idea who to build.

So I ask the following questions, what does Esper do well and who is your favorite general in the colors with the current border style?

(By current border style I mean this, Sydri, Galvanic Genius or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, as opposed to this, Merieke Ri Berit)
