8 cards? Well My choices are as follows, it's certainly a hard choice to narrow all of my favorites down. I have been playing since Journey into Nyx.

Prophet of Kruphix - Was one of the leading cards in my first ever Magic deck that I built to play casually and for a time I played it in my first commander deck led by Vorel of the Hull Clade until it's later banning.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon - One of my favorite planeswalker cards of all time that I play both in my modern tron deck as well as Atraxa, Praetors' Voice commander deck. Can turn a game around so easily, his power cannot be denied.

Omniscience - One of the reason I always liked this card was simply for it's art, and I enjoy doing splashy, big plays in commander especially in decks like my Kruphix, God of Horizons .

Westvale Abbey  Flip - Was a card that I built an earlier casual standard deck around involving Blisterpod , Cryptolith Rite , and other eldrazi scion generators to flip this card into Ormendahl, Profane Prince . If that wasn't possible, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger was another card that you could ramp into from tapping and then sacrificing the scions.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - I had one of these first in my above mentioned casual deck that was mostly simic goodstuff, and even after that I made a place for it in a Vorel of the Hull Clade , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck alongside the other praetors for flavour and now he resides in my Kruphix, God of Horizons deck where one of my favorite things to do with him is cheat him into play with Natural Order to make tons of mana for cost cards or Helix Pinnacle .

Winding Constrictor - Led a former standard deck of mine between Aether Revolt up until the later rotation all around +1/+1 counters. decks were all that I played in standard between Kaladesh to Guilds of Ravnica, only now with Ravnica Allegiance have I finally played a deck in different colours. I still have one in my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck for now until I convert it to superfriends fully with War of the Spark.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - I played this card a ton when it was in standard and I have held onto my two copies of the card which see a bit of commander play in my Edgar Markov and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic decks. Definitely one of my favorite black mythics of all time. I might in the future consider using them in a modern deck mainboard / sideboard if I ever build some deck in modern.

Cabal Coffers - There were so many cards besides this one I could still pick but this one really appeals to me as it embodies the power and greed that is black. Alongside Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth this is such good value, and I now use the card in two commander decks, Lord Windgrace and Gonti, Lord of Luxury .

Honourable Mentions of mine,

Dragonlord Ojutai , Hydra Broodmaster , Horizon Chimera , Bearer of Silence , Roil Elemental , Managorger Hydra , and Slivers!

Thank you DRmagic2017

Tithe Taker and Baird, Steward of Argive are very good cards, but I'm more or less planning on getting attacked, so I don't think I'm going to put them in.

Selfless Spirit , Conqueror's Pledge , Pennon Blade and Stoneforge Masterwork are very good tips for which I am very grateful to you, I will definitely think about them I just have to think about which I throw out for them. Maybe you have some suitable suggestions.

Westvale Abbey  Flip and everything that goes with it, I would immediately include it in the deck, but I believe that Ormendahl, Profane Prince is considered a black creature, so I can't include it in a white commander deck. For the same reason, I also decided against Archangel Avacyn  Flip.

That's a really good point about Arena Rector I hadn't really thought about it that way. I'll definitely put her into a maybeboard and watch her price.

And that's a really good point about the ultimates. I guess I do put a lot of emphasis on them for the superfriends win-cons. But, at the very least, when playing cards like Inexorable Tide and Oath of Teferi (and potentially in the future The Chain Veil and Doubling Season ) it's definitely not something I can ignore.

I'm definitely going to put Yanling in the reconsider section with Ral, but I'm a little more cautious to do so. Taking her out also gets rid of a nice way to get your allies through and, in the best case scenario, a double-striking Ormendahl, Profane Prince .

But I think for that matter I also might reconsider Sorin, Solemn Visitor . Right now the only thing he does for the deck really is his ult, and because of that I guess I rarely play him in lieu of other walkers or creatures.

Question 1: Helm of the Host will copy Ormendahl, Profane Prince.

Rule 706.8: When copying a double-faced permanent, a face-up meld card, or a melded permanent, only the copiable values of the face that’s currently up are copied. (See rule 711, “Double-Faced Cards,” and rule 712, “Meld Cards.”)


Question 2: You get an unflipped version of the permanent. The status of being flipped is not a "copiable value" defined by Rule 706.2.

This rule creates some interesting implications. Hypothetically, let's say there's a flip card that's the opposite of Homura, Human Ascendant--it starts as an enchantment, and becomes a creature. You could equip Helm of the Host to the creature (the flipped version), but the token that's created will be the enchantment.

Since flip cards are unlikely to return, we will probably never see this specific rule irregularity. However, it does can occur with planeswalkers like Gideon of the Trials--if you equip the Helm to Gideon when transformed, you get a planeswalker token.

So let's say I equip Helm of the Host to Ormendahl, Profane Prince does helm copy it as the prince or as Westvale Abbey  Flip?

Second is what about a flip card like Shidako, Broodmistress does it copy as the broodmistress or as Orochi Eggwatcher if it was attached while as the broodmistress? What if it was originally on the eggwatcher but the eggwatcher was flipped?

One of the most wacky write ups of anything I've seen ever. Adorable :)

I also have a bit of an Ormendahl, Profane Prince crush and love to see him being the town bicycle and doing work for other decks!

Fallerup on JLK's Shadowborn Apostle l Game Knights #18

7 months ago

On the show where they did the deck tech for this, they talked about adding more Shadowborn Apostles. like 30 or 32, but what do you take out? say you want 30, then you take out Bontu's Monument and what Zulaport Cutthroat? I would take those out, but also take 2 more out and add Falkenrath Noble & Westvale Abbey  Flip (Ormendahl, Profane Prince), but which 2, that is the question. also, Archfiend of Dispair is a great addition, I agree, but only vs lifegain decks, otherwise it doesn't really matter. Teysa, Orzhov Scion like before mentioned in comments here is fantastic.

She did the math incorrectly--doubling effects stack with one another. Here's the breakdown:

Exalted Angel by itself:

Total: 32 Life

Noble Purpose by way of Exalted Angel:

Total: 32 Life

Ormendahl, Profane Prince by itself:

Total: 72 Life

Noble Purpose by way of Ormendahl, Profane Prince:

Total: 72 Life

Grand Total: 32 + 32 + 72 + 72 = 208 Life
