Polymorphist's Jest Discussion

eLLIPSIS666 on I'm the reason people hate Child of Alara

einee03 Thank you for taking a look at the deck! and thank you for the good question!

Dealing with exile is always a problem for most decks, as it means bye bye for those cards forever unless you're playing some eldrazi tribal I guess??? But absolutely you can lose the opportunity to combo off with a Maze's End if someone successfully exiles a gate or Maze itself. You have already recognized some of my counters that hit those activated and or triggered abilities, but if it is just going to the graveyard I am generally not that concerned because I run cards like Eternal Witness and Noxious Revival.

In the event that my combo is no longer accessible, Child of Alara is very strong and efficient! people don't realize how strong it can really be until it is happening to them. It is also very easy to bluff the Maze combo, and simply utilize it to get color whilst preparing for a very strong board lock with child. You can even kill the board in only 6 swings! Note, that sounds like a lot, but it goes by rather quickly if player's don't have anything they can do. And in EDH terms 6 turns is trivial at best.

I really really really like Sudden Spoiling! that is a very good alternative to Polymorphist's Jest, a card I've wanted to run but been hesitant because of the double color. Double black is much better thanks to Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and my heavy reliance on black for many of my mechanics means I'm always on the lookout for black sources. And I am always looking for ways to deal with indestructibility in my deck, and this is excellent! Thank you for the great suggestion!

I have mentioned in conversations above my disinterest for creature based lands due to the tight mana base, however Kessig Wolf Run still directly synergizes (is that how it's spelled?) with Child, and only gets stronger with lots of mana, which I tend to have a lot of being partly a land based combo deck! Definitely going into the maybe pile! Thank you again for another good suggestion!

westerhack on What!? Your deck is leveling up!?

Polymorphist's Jest seems a bit awkward and forced into the deck, especially as a 4-of

Add some accelerant into your deck (mana rocks such as Izzet Signet or Desperate Ritual) to speed both creatures out and leveling up. Also, your Brainstorm is modern-illegal

So here's a list of the cards that I got for the deck:

However, there's plenty of things I know I need, and some things I might consider (thanks to edhrec.com).Holy crap, that's a lot of cards. What I want to do right now is have Kess play the support role while I tutor up Nekusar to play. As soon as I can start nabbing the wheels for Nekusar's pain, Kess's ability will allow me to cast them back for more wheel-y fun times (for me, at least). That way, people won't realize that this is actually a Nekusar deck: he's hiding, ready to strike! But my biggest problem is discerning which of these 150+ cards I need to whittle down to about 65, and also figure out how many lands I need to play. I've got a little money to spend, and this list is about as far as I'll go cost-wise.

Looks like an extremely fun brew!

only thing I could recommend is Polymorphist's Jest and maybe Arachnogenesis

the two work extremely well on their own and are devastating when played together.

Polymorphist's Jest would be even better with Norn. Only two cards and their board is wiped, ignoring hexproof, indestructible AND any deathrattle triggers.

Neotrup on can Polymorphist's Jest stop bonuses ...

Polymorphist's Jest turns the creature into a blue frog, so Clout of the Dominus only gives it +1/+1 and shroud, and it removes abilities, so that shroud part no longer matters. It will be a 2/2 blue frog with no abilities. If, however, you somehow moved Clout of the Dominus onto another creature after Polymorphist's Jest finished resolving, it would receive a new timestamp, so the creature it moved to would be a 2/2 blue frog with shroud and no other abilities.

Hi, if i have a red/blue creature with Clout of the Dominus , will a Polymorphist's Jest stop the +x/+x bonuses and things like haste and shroud too?

thanks for reading :)
