Polymorphist's Jest Discussion

If you already use Turn to Frog, why not go big with Polymorphist's Jest?

Take out all the high cost CMC spells and keep only the efficiently costed ones. You don't need cards like:

You also have two copies of Ponder in your list. After cutting those cards you should have about 100 cards. You were running too many additional redundant effects. Hope that helps.

Also I forgot Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamofor mana ramp

This is a possibility Chaos Wand just because you can and to be funny

Also Cyclonic Rift I think Devastation Tide is a better card as while as Echoing Truth because echo can purge tokens and if you chain it with a card like this Polymorphist's Jest you can really ruin a day

and Doublecast more spell copy possibility

seems like a fun build. Even though its not wizard tribal Deadeye Navigator could net you SOOOO many etb triggers and token copies of a flickered wizard.

Polymorphist's Jest is a godsend against aggro and token decks, always a welcome card in hand.

Mission Briefing is budget snappy, without the wizard bod. ~4 at time of posting.

I have seen a silly combo variant with Conspiracy and Norin the Wary as well if you are interested in surprise jank interactions

Overall it certainly seems like it runs. Good job, plenty of opportunities for money pieces to be added.

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.

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.
