DigitalFear: Yeah, unfortunately, Possessed Portal shot up.

But Planar Bridge and Paradox Engine are much cheaper now. You can get Planar Portal for a few bucks (non-foil).

If you meant casting cost, you can always cheat them out with Tinker or use Sol Rings to help.

SynergyBuild on Parhelion II as Commander?

1 week ago

I stick to the rules, in all honesty, but a lot of that is because I play cEDH mostly.

For any normal game with my casual playgroups (they sorta disbanded/are on hiatus for the quarantine) of course, I let a friend run Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and even use Paradox Engine as a commander (it was eldrazi-storm-artifact-cannon and won ~turn 4 every game) with no care. Whenever it gets too awkward or weird or busted, people stop playing them, and change decks. Parhelion would honestly probably be closer to the Mentor of the Meek EDH deck that was played only a few times, never winning, but being fun to play against.

Sadly that deck never won so it was changed for the new Heliod when it came out, I think they went all Walking Ballista combo, etc.

I want to build Prophet of Kruphix with Paradox Engine and I think it's a sin we never got to see that shit show.

Prophet of Kruphix might as while read I take 4 turns a game that card is too busted and needs to stay banned it is stupidly broken and i hope to never ever see Paradox Engine ever again just so I never have to see casual players that have no good way to win durdle for 15 minutes doing nothing because it just a good stuff card thrown in every deck

Many players love cards like Biorhythm or even Paradox Engine yet, their favorite cards were banned, other people dislike some of the reasonings behind bans, and even many dislike the idea of bans at all in the format.

What do you all think about it? Should there even be any unbans?

By the way, to all of you on the forums, thank you all for the incredibly interesting discussions!

Gidgetimer on Is this infinite combo tournament ...

The reason Four horseman is considered slow play isn't that it is non-deterministic. It is that it is non-deterministic AND returns the game to a previous state. This is the same effect as having not done anything, therefore; you are doing nothing to change the game state each time you wiff after getting the Narcomoebas out.

gitrog moster is non-deterministic, but because you can draw cards and sculpt your hand as you do the combo you can change the game state and it isn't slow play. The Paradox Engine loop in some pre-banning Captain Sissay decks was non-deterministic, but you could change the game state each time you did the loop until you got what you needed. This loop is on par with those, not four horseman. Attempting to win via this combo should be tournament legal.

I'd probabky replace Mox and Forge with Emry/Goblin Engineer and Paradoxical Outcome and replace Mycosynth Latticr with Paradox Engine
