Phyrexian Metamorph Discussion
5 days ago
I also do not posses a Timetwister or Candelabra of Tawnos though I really wish I did. As for Faithless Looting all the things you listed are true however it is 2 cards for 3 and generally unless your playing re-animator people run other options, however it is totally a very good 1 drop in red and if its been working for you then by all means continue to use it. I think that changing Phyrexian Metamorph and Misdirection into the stated cards would be the strongest change you could make to the deck. Now Paradox Engine can be very powerful but I do think that By Force and Vandalblast are better at getting out from under stacks pieces than it is. Also traditionally these grixis storm decks are very slim and run off of High Tide and Ad Nauseam pretty much exclusively as to get as much value form them as possible. Paradox Engine doesn't synergize with either of those cards. With Kess, Dissident Mage you should be attempting to cast High Tide twice in a turn more than you should be trying to get a Paradox Engine out. If you do this add more islands.

Sgtpopnfreash First of all, thanks a lot for your comments!
I don't actually have Timetwister, Candelabra of Tawnos, Flusterstorm, Copy Artifact, Volcanic Island, Underground Sea and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, but if I had them, I would certainly use them in this deck.
I'll tell you why I like having Faithless Looting in my deck. 1) it enables me to trade three(including itself) cards from my hand for two new other cards, while discarding lands or cards that i'll be able to cast later with Kess, dissident mage , such as Mind's Desire, 2) It interacts well in some Doomsday piles that I like to settle sometimes, 3) It helps me to trigger Threshold for Cabal Ritual. Cephalid Coliseum have a similar effect enabling me to trade three cards from my hand for three new cards, while it enters untapped and taps for blue mana.
Mizzix's Mastery and Paradox Engine are too powerful for not to use them. With Paradox Engine on the field I can easely storm out and with a tutor or enough draws I can quickly close the game. It also helps me to avoid some stax effects, which my playgroup is consistently improving. I'm also considering adding Vandalblast or By Force to deal with tax and stax artifacts.
Please let me know your thoughts on my comment.

Hey this is quite similar to my DD storm Kess list some suggestions I have. Misdirection is pretty high CMC for Ad Nauseam you could probably cut that. Some ad naus decks dont even run Force of Will but I think that is stupid. Faithless Looting isnt as good as some other draw spells, Night's Whisper or Chart A Course would both probably be better choices for your Doomsday piles. Phyrexian Metamorph is also very high mana costed for an Ad Nauseam deck, maybe think about Copy Artifact. Now Paradox Engine is interesting but I really haven't found it to be necessary for Kess decks specifically, between Yawgmoth's Will, the black rituals, High Tide and Kess herself you dont need Paradox Engine for more mana. Its just excessive. Other than that the deck looks pretty good I would add a few more Islands and probably cut Cavern of Souls and Cephalid Coliseum at least maybe some of the orchards too. Mizzix's Mastery, Thought Vessel and Fabricate all seem like iffy choices but they are fine if you don't have other cards.
Here is my kess deck if you would like to check it out. Kess Doomsday Storm

The Phyrexian Metamorph goes back to being what it originally copied. It's own copy effect still applies, it was simply being overwritten by an effect that no longer applies.

This came up in a cube match between my friends. Friend 1 had Phyrexian Metamorph in play, and Friend 2 enchanted it with Song of the Dryads, then friend 1 casts Disenchant on the song of the dryads. does the metamorph come back as a 0/0 creature, or does it return as the creature it initially copied?

And yes, you're right: Xenograft does work. My bad.
It's easily the best scarecrow they printed (excluding Painter's Servant which is a combo exclusive card, but whatever).
Another suggestion since you don't seem to mind running infinites, Sharuum the Hegemon + Phyrexian Metamorph. It only works if you have Xenograft or Arcane Adaptation, but still. The cards on their own aren't bad either. You can use the Metamorph to copy a Panharmonicon or any changeling, so he'll never be useless. And Sharuum can bring RK from the graveyard back into play, which is never bad either.
Also, there was another card in Commander 2017 that can replace (in my opinion) Rite of Replication: Kindred Charge. It's cheaper, and can still cause significant damage.Ultimately it's safer if ever there aren't 25 permanents on board, since RK's ability is a "must" and not a "you may" .

@ MoGoose831: I actually have more ways than most decks to protect my commander... Ashnod's Transmogrant, Silverskin Armor, Phyrexian Metamorph (replaces), Liquimetal Coating, Synod Sanctum, Mycosynth Lattice
I think Isochron Scepter might be good in here, but I would need to run more 2cmc instants. I will try to squeeze it in. Thanks!
