Nameless Inversion Discussion

Meeknomore on White/Black Tribal Knights

Ok, a few suggestions. As per the description you state you want graveyard shenanigans, and im assuming that's in reference to Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. I have my own variation of this deck: Knighty-knight that you could take a look at that does just tha.

Looking over your deck list, I see some tweaks that should be made if this is a direction you want to go. First off, you only have one outlet to easily get Haakon into the graveyard that I can see in Buried Alive. I'd recommend a few more to facilitate some consistency. Entomb & Final Parting both work like Buried alive and Peace of Mind , Call the Bloodline , and Markov Dreadknight are discard outlets for if you draw Haakon.

You should be getting some value from this recursion other than knights that wont go away. Door of Destinies is a great anthem effect that gets bigger with each spell. On top of this, there are spells like Nameless Inversion , Crib Swap , and Shields of Velis Vel that have changeling. Which means that they are Knights while in your graveyard. Haakon will allow you to play these spells over and over again.

Last suggestion is relating to your equipment package. I'm not against running equipment, but i'm certainly not a fan. However, there is one equipment that I am surprised is not being run more often and thats Kusari-Gama . Such a great effect that can punish an opponent when forced to block.

I hope this helped a bit.

Nameless Inversion is a legal killbot in your hand, and she doesn't specify "creature card from hand." With Mary in play you can activate her ability using inversion from hand. The issue is that an instant can't exist as a permanent.

It comes down to house ruling. I've read where one player used the inversion to bounce her and put inversion in the graveyard.

I don't think I get your question HerzogMacabre. If you mean switching her with the actual card Nameless Inversion as it's being cast, there's no house rules about it; Mary O'Kill explicitly only switches with Killbots on the battlefield. If you mean switching Mary on the field with Inversion in hand, you can't do that either, as the reminder text describes switching as a process performed only between two creatures.

As to your first question, sadly I have yet to get a chance to build this in paper.

I know this is a year old now, but do you still run this?

What is your house ruling for swapping Nameless Inversion with mary? I remember trying to find an official ruling on this months ago and still can't find anything.

JKRice on Gifts!? ... Forrrr meeee??

I love modern gifts, probably my favorite deck out there.

Firstly, a fun but not necessarily super good combo is giftsing for Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Nameless Inversion to wipe their board at instant speed as long as you have the mana available

Also: you need as many functionally identical cards as possible so you can force stuff through with gifts. This means it would probably be preferable to switch out 2 of your 3 mana leaks for other 2 cost counterspells like Negate and Remand. This lets you go for all three counterspells and a snapcaster in case you really want to counter something. Furthermore, I would reccomend varying your destroy spells; switch out an abrupt decay for an Assassin's Trophy, switch out a path for Dismember, etc

Also: I personally think Collective Brutality is a must, since it gains back all the life you lose from fetch-shocking and it lets you discard your reanimator targets. However, a lot of people disagree with me, so it might not be the best choice.

Finally: since you are playing cryptic command, maybe consider Eternal Witness so you can create a cryptic loop and stall a bit

JKRice on 4c gifts

I live 4c color gifts! It’s probably my favorite deck. I have a few suggestions and actually a few questions about whether certain cards are viable.

1: where’s the Raven's Crime + Life from the Loam lockdown? Gifts for raven, LftL, Urborg for a black source, and a random land. Then you can cast raven’s crime up to 3 times a turn. I’ve seen it used a lot in this deck

2: in my experience, it’s more useful for gifts control to have destroy rather than early discard. I would recommend maybe not having the TK and IoK and instead add stuff like Dismember

3: you want as many cards that are functionally identical but with different names as possible. Switch out the second Abrupt Decay for a Assassin's Trophy so you can force it through with gifts

4: I’ve found Slaughter Pact to be super useful if you have to tap out for gifts

5: Batterskull or Wurmcoil Engine in combination with Academy Ruins and life from the loam is a finisher I’ve seen a lot in these decks. The lifegain can be SUPER useful against decks like humans/spirits to disincentivize attacking

6: I personally play both Iona and elesh mainboard for a more diverse reanimate package, and I play Platinum Emperion sideboard

7: do you think Crucible of Worlds could be any good?

8: one real fun combo with gifts that I’ve seen is going for Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Nameless Inversion for a funny boardwipe.

Mana Leak seems pretty good to me. Having some interaction via counters might be beneficial. I would personally leave it in the deck.

Also, I found a resource that might be helpful. SaffronOlive from MTGGoldfish made a budget Rogue Tribal deck:

That might help you get some ideas.

Nameless Inversion is a fine card, I think, but I’m not sure about it here. Basically, it can be used as a pump spell or removal. Using it as a pump spell here would kill most of the unblockable rogues you would want to use it on, so it would pretty much just be worse removal than most kill spells. Maybe in the sideboard, it would be alright.

Thanks to GoblinsBeatElves and RedmundR2 i'm gonna add probably slither blade, bc it seems much better than the merfolk! Also i'm wondering if I should keep those Mana Leak or not in the deck... Btw, what do you thinkg about Nameless Inversion?
