Tiny_Sir on Figured out an Idea, Just ...

1 month ago


Some of you might remember me from an earlier post about getting back into commander after a 1 - year hiatus.

I think I got the best idea from DualCastGaming who said I need to just play decks to find out what I like. I figure the best way to do that is through a "Steal Yo' Stuff" deck that plays clones and takes people's cards.

I figured maybe the best colors for this would have to include Dimir colors (U/B), and I thought white added in some good effects to add and had some good commanders for this type of strategy;

Halfdane: I know I know. I said I wanted to make this on a budget. But I think if you put a big part of the budget on the commander, you won't be let down since you'll see it everygame no matter what. This guy is kinda silly, but I think he looks really fun.

Zur the Enchanter: Maybe can get tons of Control Magic type enchantments? I'm kinda unsure.

Sen Triplets: Really fun looking getting to not only steal creatures but spells as well.

Lady Evangela: Gives us some protection and is unassuming.

Dromar, the Banisher: Copy their stuff and then bounce their copies? Sounds fun!

I will not be including Merieke Ri Berit because I just don't like her to much. I don't know why she doesn't feel right however.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Scenario. Merieke Ri Berit is tapped and controlling a creature. I have Magewright's Stone and Sundial of the Infinite on my side of the battlefield. I use Magewright's Stone to untap Merieke Ri Berit. The creature I gained control of should die here, but can I use Sundial of the Infinite to end the turn to keep the creature alive and have Merieke Ri Berit untapped?

Neotrup on Necrotic Ooze and triggered effects

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.

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?

4 months ago

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?
