Quicken Discussion

wereotter on Quick question on Mizzix exp ...

You would gain one counter.

11/4/2015 You finish casting a spell, including paying its costs, before Mizzixs first ability triggers. The ability that gives you the experience counter will resolve before the spell that caused it to trigger.

Mizzix of the Izmagnus will check for each of those spells how many experience counters you have against the CMC of the spell on the stack. She will give you one counter from High Tide being the first spell cast, then when she checks for Quicken and Ponder, she will see that the spells don't have a higher CMC than the number of experience counters you have, and will not give you any additional.

Conversely if you cast them all in response to each other, she will give you one counter for Ponder and then the rest of the spells will not meet her requirements for additional counters.

Remember to link all the cards in your question to make sure everyone understands what's going on: Mizzix of the Izmagnus

You can get 3, but only by casting Ponder first. Mizzix triggers when you cast the spell, which means the trigger will be put onto the stack on top of that spell and will resolve before the spell can start resolving. In your original suggested sequence:

  • You cast High Tide and Mizzix triggers because you have 0 XP
  • You respond to the trigger with Quicken and Mizzix triggers again because you still have 0 XP. Note that you can't respond with Ponder at this point because Quicken hasn't resolved yet
  • If no one has any more responses, the most recent Mizzix trigger resolves and gives you 1 XP
  • If no one has any more responses, Quicken resolves. Playing Ponder after this point won't trigger Mizzix because you have 1 XP
  • If no one has any more responses, the first Mizzix trigger finally resolves and gives you another 1 XP (total 2)
  • If no one has any more responses, High Tide resolves

If instead you cast Ponder first, you can respond to the resulting Mizzix trigger by casting either of High Tide or Quicken, and then cast the other in response to the second Mizzix trigger, which will trigger Mizzix a third time.

I am looking to build a Mizzix EDH deck but I am unsure of some of the interactions. Any help would be much appreciated.

I start my turn 5 with Mizzix on the field, 5 mana and no experience counters. Can I High Tide into Quicken into Ponder and gain 3 experience counters, or would I only gain 1?

I'm sure this has been discussed before but I'm struggling to find a specific answer.

"Hold with that just a moment" while I flash out a Rout in combat.

"OK in your end step(I tap out, crack my Hedron Archive, sack my Expedition Map and Quicken my Cruel Ultimatum) OK now it's my turn.

Here is a few cards you could consider for this deck Sphinx's Tutelage, Obelisk of Urd, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Memory Jar, Burning Inquiry, Mulldrifter, Slithermuse, and Treasure Cruise.

Also in case you are unaware, Day's Undoing will not grant you any insect tokens. This is because it ends the turn as a part of the effect. Though your commander's effect will trigger and go on the stack, it will need to wait until Day's completely resolves before it's effect can do the same. However, the "End Your Turn" effect will remove all spells and ability triggers from the stack. However, since it does not end the turn on your opponent's turns you could bypass this by adding cards like Quicken, Leyline of Anticipation, and Vedalken Orrery.

Hydronvanquisher on How does Sudden Spoiling affect ...

2 months ago

Hi all, I've been reading up on Sudden Spoiling for a little while now and believe I have a basic understanding of it. However, I am still a little confused on how it would play out in the following scenario:

My opponent is the active player. Let's say I have a Zulaport Cutthroat and a Butcher of Malakir already out on the battlefield and my opponent has Void Winnower, Prized Unicorn and a Skyrider Elf on the battlefield.

My opponent decides to attack me with everything. After he declares attackers, and finishes casting any spells, he passes priority. I presume this is where I would either declare blockers or cast an instant and then declare blockers.

Could I cast Sudden Spoiling and then since the spell temporarily negates the static ability of Void Winnower (meaning I can block with an even CMC creature), declare my two creatures as blockers and then proceed?

I'm assuming I can but wanted to confirm I wasn't overlooking anything.

As a new wrinkle, what if during my casting step (prior to declaring blockers and prior to casting Sudden Spoiling) I decide to cast Quicken and then Act of Treason on his Void Winnower? I then decide to cast Sudden Spoiling and let combat proceed. What happens to his already declared Skyrider Elf if the CMC is even? He's declared it as an attacker but now that I have a Void Winnower on the battlefield (albeit temporarily) under my control, is it still an attacker or does it remain tapped but no longer have the ability to proceed to combat damage?

Sorry if this is a bit convoluted but I wanted to make sure I have an understanding. Thanks for any advice/info you can all offer.
