Prodigal Sorcerer Discussion

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Curious Horseshoe Crab

1 month ago

There aren't a lot of straightforward replacements some of the cards here (particularly time walk) and some might be a little worse and you'll definitely lose some of the synergy, but that doesn't mean we can't keep the game plan. Also this is for the modern format (what used to be extended) and not the current standard. That being said:


  • Horseshoe Crab/Thieving Magpie - Still modern legal/Surge Mare also works.
  • Thornwind Faeries - Prodigal Sorcerer.
  • Raven Familiar - Augury Owl/Sea Gate Oracle.
  • Rayne - No functional replacement that affects all your creatures/Monastery Siege might be able to serve a similar purpose of making it harder to target your permanents rather than discourage your opponent from targeting.


Counterspells. This one is a bit tricky as they moved away from the classic Counterspell and there's a lot of variety here and counters have changed a lot. So I'm just going to recommend a few to consider:

Spell Pierce, Negate, Muddle the Mixture, Remand, Archmage's Charm, Condescend, Deprive, Essence Capture, Force of Negation, Hinder, Rune Snag, Wizard's Retort, and Thassa's Intervention.

Well, that took a bit of time, but I hope this helps.

Edit: I said Spike when I meant Timmy. I get those backwards sometimes, because "Spike" brings to mind the dumb brute, who smashes aluminum cans on his head and punches people because he thinks it's funny. In R&D terms, it's actually the opposite. On a tangent note, when people say "Timmy," my mind goes to Prodigal Sorcerer.

Anyway, carry on...

Clintone on How does Sigil of Sleep ...

1 month ago

Let's say I have a Prodigal Sorcerer and a Fireslinger that have both been enchanted with Sigil of Sleep.

My opponent has a creature with protection from red, a creature with protection from blue, a creature with protection from creatures, and a creature with the Shroud ability.

Would either the Prodigal Sorcerer or the Fireslinger be able to return any of my opponent's creatures to her/his hand via damaging my opponent? If so, which ones would the Fireslinger be able to return to my opponent's hand, and which ones would the Prodigal Sorcerer be able to return to my opponent's hand?

Note that Sigil of Sleep is a blue card, Fireslinger is a red card, and Prodigal Sorcerer is a blue card.

Clintone on How does Combat Celebrant work?

1 month ago

Let's say I have 1 Prodigal Sorcerer and 2 Combat Celebrant cards in play. My opponent has 1 Runeclaw Bear in play. I first tap the sorcerer to deal 1 damage to Runeclaw Bear. Then I attack with both Combat Celebrant cards. Can I use one of their exertion abilities to untap the Prodigal Sorcerer to re-tap it to deal 1 more damage to the Runeclaw Bear, killing the Runeclaw Bear before it can block either of the Combat Celebrant cards?

After using the Combat Celebrant ability to untap my cards and allow a second attack phase, can I also use the second Combat Celebrant card's ability to provide a third attack, or is that not allowed because they're both the same card type?

Mj3913 on Timmy needs you! (Help!)

4 months ago

I've been trying to finish this project based mostly around Timmy ( Prodigal Sorcerer ), however I've encountered some 'deck builders block' I put a blurb in the description so you can get an idea of what I'm after, I'd just like to close this case. Upvotes aren't necessary or the goal here.

Any and all help is appreciated, you don't have to try building it (I mean, if you do Great!), just help sort it out some. It's a mess...

dragonstryke58 on Naban + Changeling + Champion ...

9 months ago

That is correct.

Mothdust Changeling has both human and wizard subtypes thanks to the Changeling ability. Champion of the Parish will trigger due to Mothdust Changeling being a human, and Naban, Dean of Iteration will cause Champion of the Parish to trigger twice due to Mothdust Changeling being a wizard. It is the same as if any other human wizard (like Prodigal Sorcerer ) entered the battlefield.

+1, I like where you're going with this but I have to burst your bubble and tell you that Prodigal Sorcerer esque abilities do not count as combat damage and therefore do not trigger things like Bident of Thassa .
