Heliogabale, it's that says it's illegal, if you look along the sidebar of this deck. I'm guessing they must have it wrong, I don't see how it could be broken enough to be banned. Thanks for taking a look.

KayneMarco, it's funny you should say that - I just removed Primeval Titan to make Avatar of Growth the one illegal card, yesterday. I had Primeval in there to search for my "search engine" lands—Field of Ruin & Ghost Quarter—because they'll make other people search their library. This mandatory search for opponents is the core of this deck, to trigger the ability of Ob Nixilis, Unshackled. I had enough in there to grab those lands and Avatar of Growth gives me another mandatory "search engine" that'll make OTHERS search their library, trigger Ob Nixilis. So, he's a direct part of the win-con rather than just another enabler, where primeval would just be there for setup. If it turns out is wrong though, and Avatar isn't illegal as Heliogabale found, I'll be putting Primeval Titan back in, for sure! Thank you!

hkhssweiss, oh man! there's an idea... Imagine having Maralen of the Mornsong out, then taking their turn using the tutor trigger of Maralen to search for a tutor card? Wow! If I can find a few other sure-fire ways to make sure I can use their turn to tutor, I will give this some very serious thought. Thats extra jank. Gold star for you.

I am not sure which list you are looking at, but I definitely do not see Avatar of Growth on the Wizards website banned list for Commander. Banned cards include Primeval Titan and Sylvan Primordial.

If your play group allows one banned card per deck and the one you chose is the avatar that searches for land why not use Primeval Titan? It looks like it is better value for you and you’re not giving your opponents any extra lands at the same time.

Seems that Avatar of Growth and Primeval Titan is banned. (sucks though cause so many people suggested the avatar). Nice name

TheAlexGnan the last few days I've been testing game 3 vs Tron whenever I have 5 minutes (with Tron sideboarded to the best of my ability). I have a decent win percentage (I haven't been tracking) but not as good as I think is necessary. I'm surprised and impressed that you're 6-6.

Surgical Extraction without a ld effect is really bad. And surgical with ld still leaves me way down on cards. I've actually lost quite a few games because I stumbled after getting them off of Tron, which seems a bit awkward.

For now I'm going up to 2 Field of Ruin and 4 Fulminator Mage and 4 Anger of the Gods in the sideboard. It's probably not correct to be all-in on those cards, but I won't know for sure unless I test a bit.

We also have Damping Sphere available. From the testing I've done with it before, it is actually really effective. They can get around it by hardcasting (like always) or with Oblivion Stone, but it might be worth looking into doing a 2-2 Fulminator-Damping split.

Disdainful Stroke is fantastic vs Tron and I can imagine how good it is vs Primeval Titan, however I really think I'll miss the extra Countersquall vs burn and storm. I'm not sure which is more relevant, but I suspect the Countersquall will win me over in the end.

I dropped the 2nd Countersquall because I found I was flooding on counterspells a little bit too much vs tron, which is a problem I noticed when playing Delver.

Winterblast on Let's Discuss: Why is Emrakul ...

1 week ago

I have to disagree on Emrakul being too strong as a commander. In fact, Emrakul and the other Eldrazi titans are rather bad commanders because they force you to go colorless and that comes along with multiple downsides: less consistency because colorless tutor effects are a lot rarer and more expensive than coloured ones, almost no instants and interaction, commanders that rely on combat to win (because searching for combos is incredibly clunky in colourless decks). That's not a secret and if you check on competitive decks you see that there is not a single colourless deck among the best ones.

Ramping into Emrakul...getting to 15 mana would win the game immediately with any reasonably good EDH deck. What happens when you cast Emrakul? An extra turn + fucking up ONE oponent with annihilator. Until you actually win you would have to attack 3 times at least (to make everyone sac to annihilator and hopefully remove their whole board - which isn't a sure thing though) and to actually kill everyone you need to attack 6 times. Compared to what commander decks can possibly do, this is rather weak and slow.

We do know though, that the EDH banlist doesn't care at all about objective strength of cards in the format (which is actually cool because the format lives off powerful and broken interactions) but only considers cards that ultra casual players have complained about too often and also cards that Sheldon personally dislikes it seems. It has nothing to do with how problematic the cards would be in the format. You just need to look at banned cards like Primeval Titan or Coalition Victory to see that...

Interesting card. I've never heard of it but it's cool.

Although perhaps strange, counterspells are best for cards that cost a lot of mana. Spending 2 mana to counter something with cmc 1 is tempo loss - and that cmc 1 card that I'm countering probably dies to lightning bolt anyway. Counterspells really shine when you're countering Primeval Titan, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, or Karn Liberated. These cards are impactful even if they're killed after they resolve. Usually cmc 1 and cmc 2 cards are just fine if they resolve.

So while prohibit has tons of targets in modern, it misses the cards that are the best reasons to play countermagic at all.
