Painter's Servant

Artifact Creature — Scarecrow

As Painter's Servant enters the battlefield, choose a color.

All cards that aren't on the battlefield, spells, and permanents are the chosen color in addition to their other colors.

Painter's Servant Discussion

What're your thoughts on Mausoleum Secrets possibly seeing play in this list? The idea being that it could, in theory, fetch Oblivion Crown , Squandered Resources , or something else of value? (Assassin's Trophy for example...)

As an added oddball question, with the unbanning of Painter's Servant , has there been any discussion between you, Razillox, or Kiebitzen about P.S.'s possible inclusion? The rationale behind this thought is that with it on the field (Naming Black), Autumn's Veil and Veil of Summer become more powerful, and can be found via Mausoleum Secrets. Additionally, for those that want to be cheeky monkeys, that also makes Lifeforce a possible consideration for budget lists.

I'll also drop you a line via discord in case you're not able to check the primer.

Stay Chill.

Competitive cards that come to mind are Painter's Servant and Grind Stone. Fun cards would be like Sphinx's Tutelage and Mind Funeral .

Painter's Servant is slightly more effective than Darkest Hour with this commander and is legal in commander again. I'd play both of them.

You will either pay 2 or 3 for Celestial Dawn depending on the timestamps of Mycosynth Lattice and Painter's Servant . Ugin only reduces the generic portion of mana costs, therefore the max discount on Celestial Dawn is going to be 1. If Painter's Servant came into the battlefield first Mycosynth Lattice will make your cards colorless after they were made a color and Ugin's discount will apply. If Mycosynth Lattice entered the battlefield first Painter's Servant makes them a color after they become colorless and they are no longer colorless and Ugin's discount doesn't apply.

In this specific example all your non-land permanents and non-land cards are white, and lands and land cards will be either colorless or the color you picked with Painter according to the same timestamp rules as before. If Painter enters after Celestial Dawn all non-land permanents and cards will be both colors and land permanents and cards will be the painter color.

I think I found the answer.

Celestial Dawn can't be cast because its no longer colorless due to Painter's Servant .

So just need help with Q2.

Mystic Forge + Mycosynth Lattice + Ugin, the Ineffable + Painter's Servant on my battlefield.

Celestial Dawn on top of my library.

Q1: How much do I need to pay to cast Celestial Dawn ? 1 or 2?

Celestial Dawn makes all permanents white. Painter's Servant makes all permanents the color of my choice in addition to its other color.

Q2: Does Celestial Dawn override Painter's Servant ability so all permanents are just white or will my permanents and spells be both white and another color from Painter's Servant ?

Thank you

Now I didn't exactly mean Spellbook (it's just the original effect).

your deck is rather tutor heavy which enables you to assemble strong combo's, like Painter's Servant naming green, and Deathgrip or setting off reservoir n such. which competitive decks need to do when they're facing other well tuned lists. Doomsday piles seems to be possible with him if I remember right.

It's good to link cards that you're discussing:

Firesong and Sunspeaker

Painter's Servant

As for how it works - I'm guessing you name white with Painter's Servant . This means that every time you cast a burn spell (making the assumption that 99.99% of burn spells are red/X) then that spell has lifelink and triggers the white spell gain life clause of FS&SS. This means that every burn spell deals an additional 3 damage. So something like Grapeshot gest really dumb, as each copy will effectively deal 4 damage.
