Nihil Spellbomb Discussion

Huge fan of Akiri/Bruse+Silas, Silas recuring artifacts every turn is really sweet, use doublestrike enablers or extra combat enablers to do some sweet things.

You often end up trying to loop artifacts for Time Sieve or Mindslaver loops to attempt infinite turns. Pretty cool. You can also use cards like Nihil Spellbomb , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Executioner's Capsule , Aether Spellbomb , etc.

"When you sac Mirror of Fate , which is part of the activation cost, it goes to the grave. You can then hold up priority and use Faerie Macabre , discard her (which is also a cost) to remove her and the Mirror from the grave and put the Mirror and faerie on top of your new library."

The following interaction you just described is illegal according to rule 601.2. Whenever you cast a spell or activate an ability if that spell or ability would target an object, the object(s) you intend to target must be a legal target before costs are paid. This is because all spells and abilities and their corresponding targets are always announced before costs are calculated and paid for.

Given the scenario you just described you would be able to exile the mirror with Faerie Macabre 's activated ability, however; you would be unable to exile the Faerie Macabre to itself. Do note this only happens if a spell or ability targets. The exiled cards you choose to put on top of your library with Mirror of Fate don't have to be legal choices before it's ability is activated - they just have to be legal upon the moment it resolves which means you can put the Mirror in your new library if you are able to exile it before it's ability resolves. If Faerie Macabre instead read as: "Discard Faerie Macabre: Choose up to two cards in graveyards. Exile those cards." then the scenario you listed would be able to work as you described.

That said, there are still ways to cycle Mirror of Fate without the Faerie Macabre . These cards with the Mirror will still generate the same effect: Tormod's Crypt , Nihil Spellbomb , Sentinel Totem , Purify the Grave , Remorseful Cleric . If you want a repeatable exile effect that doesn't need to be exiled to work I'd recommend cards like: Withered Wretch , Grim Lavamancer , Sarcatog , Scrabbling Claws , Relic of Progenitus - These cards can stay on the battlefield while reliably being able to exile your Mirror at instant speed.

I thought this interaction was really cool, which is why I went out of my way to find alternative card options in case I ever decide to run something like this in my own deck. +1 for the potential card synergy and creativity.

I like the deck! +1

My feedback:

  1. I definitely agree that maybe a single copy of Blightning in the mainboard could be beneficial.

  2. I would also suggest Murderous Cut - between Faithless Looting and all the other low-cost Instants and Sorceries you are running 1 copy of Murderous Cut would be easy to cast for 1 black mana consistently.

  3. Tragic Slip would be very easy to turn on with all your creature hate and self-sacrificing.

  4. That being said you do run a fair amount of creature hate - I think mainboarding a copy or 2 of Nihil Spellbomb in the place of 1 or 2 destruction spells would improve your game 1s against decks like Dredge and Phoenix - just a thought

Looks good though, good luck!

You have a pretty good selection of soft removal--is Bontu's Last Reckoning doing anything special? I'd consider that more of a sideboard card for this deck. Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts seems counterproductive with your enchantments, in addition to skewing the mana curve. The Ghostly Prison in your maybeboard I think would help more, if you have the budget for it.

You have a lot of graveyard removal ( Bojuka Bog , Scavenger Grounds , and Crook of Condemnation ), and most of that can be moved to sideboard (or removed as too much redundancy) as well, unless there's a lot of graveyard decks running rampant around your area. I also recommend Tormod's Crypt or Nihil Spellbomb over Crook of Condemnation .

Add in some more extort cards, maybe something like Utter End or Anguished Unmaking for noncreature removal, and this should shape up nicely.

I tend to have this same problem. My current way to try to play more casually is to pick cards/strategies which are fun, but not that good, and then build semi-competitively with an inherently bad deck goal. This is good for me because I cannot bring myself to play deliberately strictly-worse cards, especially for interaction. That, to me, isn't fun. There shouldn't be any problems with Nature's Claim or Swords to Plowshares or Wrath of God .

For example, my casual commander deck right now is partners Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa . I play a lot of 2 power creatures which can't be blocked because of Sidar and artifacts like Nihil Spellbomb and Baleful Strix to recur with Silas Renn. My payoff cards are things like Mirror Entity , Spawnwrithe , Edric, Spymaster of Trest , Dusk . Overall the deck can do some silly and fun things, but it's inherently not a good strategy.

If you really want to build a deck that's not too competitive, build Boros XD

I would love to get people's opions about some changes I am wanting to make to my Thrasios and Tymna deck:

For a while I have been running the bomberman combo with a Birthing Pod deployment line, however I have been finding it a bit underwhelming. So I am thinking of making the following changes:

Out: Auriok Salvagers , Lion's Eye Diamond , Trinket Mage , Birthing Pod , Conjurer's Bauble , Nihil Spellbomb

In: Rhystic Study , Runic Armasaur , Priest of Titania , Elvish Mystic , Memory's Journey , Dispel

I would love to get people's thoughts on the propsoed changes, as well as any other suggestions in general.

Has Siren Stormtamer been discussed in addition to memory's journey? It could be the extra creature to get with the Hulk doublers, so it stops interaction with combo pieces or Crop Rotation targeting Bojuka Bog , Tormod's Crypt , Nihil Spellbomb , Rakdos Charm , Primal Command , etc.

So I'm in the process of updating my Sidisi deck and thought I should mention Siren Stormtamer for graveyard protection, I just realized it completely stops Bojuka Bog , Rakdos Charm , Jund Charm , Nihil Spellbomb , Agent of Erebos , Angel of Finality , etc. And I'm noticing my deck is lackluster in the early game, so I wanted to ask you how effective Coiling Oracle , Baleful Strix and other cards like Brainstorm , Dusk Legion Zealot , Satyr Wayfinder , Stitcher's Supplier was for you?
