Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Card creation challenge

Rowan's Persuasion


Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap that creature. It gains haste until end of turn. Rowan's Persuasion deals 3 damage to it.

"You know, it's funny; I thought you'd be a bigger threat." - Rowan.

Sort of a light emulation of both her +2 and -2.

Turn one of Nicol Bolas' other siblings into a Planeswalker. For reference, they are:

As an alternative challenge, Merrevia Sal is another sister to Bolas / Ugin and the rest but never had a card representing her because she was killed early on by Humans. Do her justice and make her a Shard / Wedge that hasn't already been done by the Bolas family. Since she died so early, she doesn't get a Planeswalker card; Only a Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon.

Funny enough I just realized that Bolas and his family are all SHARDS with Ugin being colorless. Huh, neat! So make their lost dead sister, Merrevia Sal, a wedge :3

I run a Mayael the Anima that is also about as Timmy as it gets, and I definitely feel the frustration you feel when your alpha strike is undone by instant speed removal. The solution I've found is to try and be a Timmy, whilst playing like a Spike, and wait for the perfect opportunity (Opponents tapped out) to seize the chance for an Alpha strike and kill the damn blue player.

I found that getting rid of my removal package was the first key. 1, I found it counter-intuitive to my deck - I want creatures on the field, so every time I was holding a board wipe, it was a dead card. Your dragons win the day with their size and flying anyway, You needn't fear any other board state. You have access to white - you could run a protection package? Stuff like rootborn defences etc, that will stop the killing, Aw hell, you have access to blue? If Cyclonic Rift keeps ruining your day, force your opponents to get creative against you, run Syncopate or Scatter to the Winds and counter their Rift! That'll teach them - and you'll win more games. Screw it all and run your own Cyclonic Rift - you can cast in an end step to ensure there are no blockers for your dragons, and guarantee and open door to the opponent!

Also, Bone Dragon AKA Viserion for flavour. Also Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner Gets Hexproof, until you decide to swing with her.

For the protected dragons, use Silumgar, the Drifting Death or Belltoll Dragon for true hexproof, or Dragonlord Ojutai , Chromium, the Mutable , or Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner for semi-hexproof.

Consider at least 1 of these options for each Scion list.

Supplemental: Fixes requested are, mostly finished; including a new name:

BMH: Introspected, & Introverted; The UnExperience

The Pr0n references are extinguished, so many changes I believe should be relevant enough; I tried all I can to make it viable on its own. While it still has the crazy, & outlandish parts for the most part, I kept some as it seemed to describe the reality around me in ways others wouldn't normally imagine on their own.

I'm not sure if this works well for you, cdkime, but it's the best I can do for now. I even mentioned Possible War of the Spark (WAR) Planeswalker Teyo Verada where Kaya was mentioned; my (Absolutely Incorrect) Hypothesis is that Teyo, & Kaya came from the same Plane of Existence of unknown name/origin before it was destroyed. How else can you describe them fighting side by side with each other? Maybe they knew each other since youth?

Opinions aside, I plan to make a Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner & a +1/+1 based Deck after pulling out both Breeding Pool , & Simic Ascendancy , but who? Personally, I'm unsure as much, but maybe something BESIDES Kruphix, God of Horizons this time (Making a deck using X spells is harder than it seems.), please?

Also, I myself still wonder what would be good as an alt Lockdown card for the following combo: Maralen of the Mornsong + Mindlock Orb . Not being able to draw, or even search your library is hell on the field enough; even to a point where just those two forces a game to a lockdown impossible to escape for even the user. What could be used to bypass all the Boardwide Stasis that affects even one using this? Oh, wait; Necropotence ; now I just need repeatable life gain; Lone Missionary or some ETB Life Gain effect could do great.

Finally, I was never good with chatrooms, but if you want me to upgrade my account; I have several things clouding me:

  1. What's the tab, & is it something one must pay again & again?

  2. How high can an upgrade of an account be (I've seen quite the bit of design of the upgraded usernames, but is it really equal?)

  3. Why should I even touch the chat link around mere strangers? (This is optional, & a joke question also rhetorical.)

  4. Just so were clear, do you think the name & list of things mentioned in the description are good. I just wanted to ask again to be sure...

Alright. All that aside; I just want your opinion on all this...

I guess I could probably leave this this way now; my job for this is pretty much all done.

Apologies to you guys. If I had an excuse, it's that my next deck after this runs Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner (All because she's the weakest of the Elder Dragons; Contrary to her Errata. XP)

Dragons should pick from:

Utvara Hellkite , Scourge of Kher Ridges (could be a good wipe for the board, 2x mana for ur, 4 mana to do 4 damage to each creature), Nicol Bolas (wipe someone's hand turn 6? yes, please), Hellkite Overlord (Big damage), Tyrant's Familiar (single creature killer), Scourge of Nel Toth (direct return ability), Ojutai, Soul of Winter (this is a maybe, gives vigilance), Eternal Dragon direct return ability, Dragon Mage Drops your hand into graveyard plus drawing 7 cards..risky af given it help others, Chromium, the Mutable you can actually pay 2 on ur to make him hexproof with this card..could save Ur in time of need, Bladewing the Risen this guy is weird idk if i would put it in because enter the battlefield abilities don't help Ur, Balefire Dragon fuck yes, Atarka, World Render Huge damage. low toughness, Vorosh, the Hunter 6 counters for Ur, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire a little risky but seems to be worth it, Teneb, the Harvester yes yes yes, Silumgar, the Drifting Death give ur hexproof, Rith, the Awakener many tokens, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner hexproof trample vigilance, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami potential permanent killer, Numot, the Devastator destroy lands (probably should be left out), Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius draw a card, Intet, the Dreamer I think he is really good, Hellkite Tyrant could steal you a bunch of artifacts, Dragonlord Silumgar steal a creature a turn if using ur. steal a creature if putting out permanently. good for removing a particular blocker, Crosis, the Purger good against mono decks.

legendofa on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

11 months ago

I freely admit to not being the most EDH-focused player, but it seems to me like the Tier 5: Casual list could be split up. I'm not going to suggest moving any of them up to a higher tier, but even the most casual player (performed here by me) can envision a deck for, say, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner or Daghatar the Adamant much more easily than Shimatsu the Bloodcloaked or Torsten Von Ursus. I'm going to guess the tier rankings are deeply ingrained in the PlayEDH Discord conversation, but there is an objective difference between "casual" and "unplayable trash", and I submit that right now, there's a much greater spread in power level within Tier 5 alone than between Tiers 1 and 2, or between 2 and 3. Is there any space for a Tier 6?
