Polymorphist's Jest Discussion

Kogarashi on Does removing all abilities from ...

According to rule 613, Swiftfoot Boots (abiity-adding effect) and Polymorphist's Jest (ability-removing effect) are in the same layer, so they apply in timestamp order. This means if Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is equipped with Swiftfoot Boots when Jest resolves, Atraxa loses hexproof and haste due to Jest being the newer effect.

Gordeaux on Does removing all abilities from ...

I recently encountered a situation where an opponent had Swiftfoot Boots on his Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and I played Polymorphist's Jest to remove "all abilities" so it would no longer have hexproof for the turn and be targetable. Would I be able to target it for removal or does the fact that the equipment bestows hexproof on the creature mean that the 1/1 frog had hexproof and haste? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Madcookie on How does Phoebe's ability interact ...

I've never played with any un-cards, but generally whenever a text on a card refers to a card by its name it is translated in the cases of copying as "this permanent" rather than the printed name.

706.10b A copy of an ability has the same source as the original ability. If the ability refers to its source by name, the copy refers to that same object and not to any other object with the same name. The copy is considered to be the same ability by effects that count how many times that ability has resolved during the turn.

For example if Mirage Mirror died while copying The Scarab God it will get returned to its owner's hand at the end of turn, regardless of the fact that it is not considered a creature or The Scarab God while in the graveyard. So Phoebe, Head of S.N.E.A.K. will permanently have the text and refer to herself in all instances of the name Modular Monstrosity in her newly acquired text box.

As for the other question I can think of Pongify, Beast Within and Polymorphist's Jest.

This is my first commander deck I got a few months back and have built it up slowly but am in dire need of help finishing it. I know it is slow and probably bad but I like it and it suits me just fine. I like how it can focus on the graveyard but the only strategies I have for it is the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank set and the Sphinx's Tutelage. I want to focus it on wizards mill where my wizards can help me use my graveyard getting back my instants and sorceries that help mill and draw using Sphinx's Tutelge. Other creatures can be added like Consecrated Sphinx but i'd like for creatures to be mostly wizard. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for all the great suggestions Ravenrose. I did actually put Polymorphist's Jest in as it was just too cool not to. I am trying to keep the witch and curse count pretty high, but will certainly keep your other recommendations for future tuning if I decide I want to change it up. This deck is very vorthos and probably not very competitive so tuning will just be a matter of fun instead of making it perform any better. I will be sure to check out your decks.

Best, ~BoS

I love this deck! Everything from the name down to the theme and synergy is impeccable. It is a little stereotypical but hey, it is creative and well done. May I also suggest Polymorphist's Jest and Snakeform? Psychic Venom is also a good one - in the Medieval Age, witches were believed to be able to poison the mind of their victims and make psychic attacks. Palace Familiar is synergy (owlet's wing). Curse of the Swine is related to Circe, the Ancient Greek Witch of Aiaia, daughter of Helios and Perse (mother of witches). In some myths, she is believed to be the daughter of Hekate, Mother and Goddess of all witches, witchcraft, folk in the road, necromancy, the moon, dogs and divination. This deck is missing a counterspell so why not try Swan Song. My last suggestion is Mystical Tutor. I hope these help!

If you have some time would you look at my Morai, Otherworld, Pagan and Dracarys decks?

SirSh4ggy thanks for the comment! So are you saying I should put the collar back in the deck? Trinket mage can also fetch the Top, which seems quite good.

I know about Fireball and I'll give it some more consideraton, but I do like Banefire's uncounterable clause. Plus I can fork it.

I do really like the Polymorphist's Jest idea, especially because I can then ping things off afterwards

You are right about not trying to combo. I have other combo decks I don't need this one to do it too lol. My problem with Curiosity is without my commander is pretry useless for me and I have no way to recur it if it dies. I know it's only a one mana investment but it's a one card slot investment as well and I don't know if it's worth the slot. Plus idk what I'd take out for it. But I'll definitely think about it.

I'll probably add the scepter.

For one, Trinket Mage only wants to search out your Basilisk Collar, instead of some ramp-rocks. Also, Sorcerer's Wand could be neat since you could attack, pay to deal damage, then tap to deal damage.

Instead of Banefire check out Fireball, since you can hit more than one target with it, and it's a classic. One of my favorite cards is Polymorphist's Jest; it's totally great to turn a bunch of 6/6 dragons into frogs for a turn.

You might not be looking to combo, but cards like Curiosity won't combo with this particular dracogenius and are still great. Again, since you're looking at control set ups, look into Isochron Scepter to keep up those counter-spells or Reverberates.
