  • Clone Legion -borrow a copy of your opponents creatures or make more of your own!
  • Karn Liberated -GOLD
  • Nexus of Fate -Free turn that shuffles back in yes, please

    Clockwork Golem

    Artifact Creature - Golem

    Clockwork Golem enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it. At the end of combat, if Clockwork Golem attacked or blocked this combat, remove a +1/+1 counter from it.

    Modular X (This enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it. When it dies, you may put it's +1/+1 counters on target artifact creature.)

    There are those who spend a lifetime trying to gain more time, only to have it slip away in their precious last final moments.


    So if you pay for a total of , it enters the battlefield as a 14/14 that progressively becomes weaker over time but if it is killed outright via spell / ability it empowers something else you control.

    Not a bad design, if I do say so myself.

    So we have Platinum Angel and Steel Hellkite, but no Artifact Demon.

    Please rectify that and make an Artifact Demon :)

    OneManClan: I used to run it but I think it's redundant especially when I have Whir of Invention which is technically capable of getting Torpor Orb out at instant speed without Raff. Good point about Platinum sounds like a pretty good card to test, I might give it a try too myself.

    Honestly, the deck runs smoothly enough where Platinum Angel isn't required.

    Jimmy_Chinchila - I like where your mind is at! Those cards never even crossed my mind when building this deck! Given that I don't have many ways of gaining life and I actively have ways to not gain life in this deck, I don't feel like I would be able to make full usage of Lich's Mastery and in many cases I could see it hurting me more than helping me. Platinum Emperion and Platinum Angel on the other hand I really like. I'm a little scared that they'll be like Kaervek the Merciless was in this deck and be a high CMC card that gets immediately removed before it has any impact due to my lack of protection in this deck. But since it's not actively damaging anyone else, maybe they'll draw less hate. Once I find the next underperformer in this deck I'll swap it out with one of those to give it a test run!

    Gleeock - That card is hilarious! I almost want to build a deck solely based around it. Whereas this deck is pretty much purely "group-slug" I could see a deck built around that card being some weird hybrid of group hug and group slug with cards from this deck like Zo-Zu the Punisher, Manabarbs, & Ankh of Mishra while also having cards like Mana Flare, Ghost Quarter, Old-Growth Dryads, or Tempt with Discovery to have players ramp and hit those "punishing landfall" triggers like Ankh of Mishra. Not quite sure how the stack works in this case, but you could even potentially also try and get lucky with Warp World and see if you can Ankh or Zo-zu from your library to have players take damage from the lands they put into play from it. Either way, that's a really fun card!

    acscreamholy - I've considered it and reconsidered it over and over. I'm still considering it! Unfortunately it only takes out one player at a time before you need to sacrifice Xantcha to do it again and you don't want to leave Xantcha under your control for an extended period of time. So it essentially takes a 2 card combo and turns it into a 3 card combo once you include a sacrifice outlet. I also don't have a lot of colorless mana sinks aside from Xantcha or Exsanguinate; so generating infinite colorless mana in this deck is much less useful than in most other decks. All that being said, it still is a way to take a player out of the game and it still is infinite colorless mana so it's definitely worth considering. I just would need to find approximately 5 slots for it (rings, monolith, and probably a minimum of 3 sacrifice outlets) and that's the hard part to do. Thanks for the suggestion and I didn't realize it wasn't in my "maybeboard" until you suggested it! Throwing it in right now.

    It just hit me: Lich's Mastery so you don’t lose despite hurting yourself! Maybe also Platinum Emperion and Platinum Angel for that matter...maybe that would help make the build more competitive

    This is only slightly related but why do you think Platinum Angel never should have been printed?

    DemonDragonJ on Gwendolyn Goldweiss, Angelic Ascendant

    This game now has two fiendish planeswalkers (Tibalt and Ob-Nixilis), so I feel that is should also have an angelic planeswalker. Obviously, a story is needed to explain how such a beign could exist, so I have written one, as seen, below:

    Gwendolyn Goldweiss's story Show

    I know that Gwendolyn's story is not particularly imaginative or original, but I was not putting my best effort into it; I merely wished for there to be a story that would explain how there could be an angelic planeswalker, and I decided that having an existing planeswalker transfer their spark to an existing angel would be too similar to Venser giving his spark to Karn; the idea of a mortal transcending their existence when their planeswalker spark ignited was much more interesting and imaginative.

    Now, for the actual card of Gwendolyn Goldweiss:

    Gwendolyn Goldweiss, angelic ascendant Show

    For Gwendolyn's first ability, I ensured that it cannot protect planeswalkers, because a player could simply use that ability indefinitely while building their forces. This way, the player is forced to use resources to protect Gwendolyn while she protects the player and their creatures.

    For Gwendolyn's second ability, I added the clause that restricts the number of creatures that she can summon when she first enters the battlefield to prevent a player from spending six mana and then immediately summoning five 4/4 creatures with flying.

    For Gwendolyn's final ability, I originally had it written so that the emblem prevent a player from losing the game at all as long as they controlled an angel, but that made it too similar to Platinum Angel, which I feel is an overpowered card that should never have been printed, originally. Given that losing life is by far the most common manner through which players lose the game, I feel that the current version of the emblem is very good as it is.

    What does everyone else say about this card? How is it?
