Hyperalgialysis on Help with Strengthening Grixis Pirate ...

Have you tried throwing in some creatures with changeling? Things like Cairn Wanderer and Shapesharer are still priates after all. To help get damage in for the admiral, Levitation and other evasive anthem effects might be useful. Don't overdo it on tribal support either, you can easily get away with tossing in some better quality creatures, provided the effect they give is worth running them. I agree with the comment above that you may have a hard road ahead to make it work, but you could theoretically win if you play smart and lessen your grip on the tribal theme. I also noticed a lack of Clone type creatures in your deck. Dack's Duplicate Evil Twin Body Double and Quicksilver Gargantuan are all half decent and can either be a pirate on entry or a more serious threat an opponent has. Sleep and other tap everything down effects wilk get damage in for you too.

Hyperalgialysis on Tokemon *Budget* Temmet EDH

Your maybe board looks like one awesome deck. Your main would greatly benefit from including bits of it. Regardless, if you want to keep it under $50 I will try and offer some budget options you may not have considered. Quicksilver Gargantuan is a great Clone and pairs really well with Stolen Identity. Identity Thief is awesome with etb effects. I also like Sram's Expertise, Servo Exhibition and Raise the Alarm all solid token makers. If you start seeing some value in adding more instant and sorcery spells, Talrand, The Sky Summoner and Talrand's Invocation are both solid in that type of strategy. I did see the incovation in the maybe board but if talrand makes it in the invoaction is good too. Elspeth, Knight-Errant starts to get out of price range but is so good I had to mention her. A few good board wipes are Descend upon the Sinful Planar Outburst and Planar Cleansing. The cleansing makes your opponents so sad cause it hits mana rocks too. Judge's Familiar Spiketail Hatchling Spiketail Drakeling and Spiketail Drake are all good targets for copy effects and give that extra value since they are counterspells on a stick, and they fly! One last good thing to cover would be draw. Since you are lacking a little, Jace's Ingenuity and Opportunity are both great at instant speed and really net a lot of cards for the investment. Mind Spring is really good since it can dig so deep late game. Think Twice Catalog Artificer's Epiphany Tragic Lesson all instant speed and most do not require a discard.

The copy will be a 4/4.

The "except it's still (characteristic)" rules phrasing just means that the given characteristic won't be copied over from the original, and the card will instead retain its own base characteristic. The reason Quicksilver Gargantuan is written to say "except it's still 7/7" is because 99.9% of the time its base P/T will be 7/7. The card would work the same way if it said something like "except for that creature's power and toughness", but it would probably be way more confusing to the average player.

If I use The Scarab Gods ability targeting a Quicksilver Gargantuan, will the created copy be a 4/4 or a 7/7?

The reason I ask is that Quicksilver Gargantuan reads: "...except it's still 7/7." But it isn't in the first place! It's a 4/4!

Tyrant-Thanatos, Your reasoning is so off right now it's giving me a headache.

First off: Quicksilver Gargantuan copying a Tarmogoyf and staying a 7/7 has nothing to do with timestamps or layers. It's simply because it never gets Tarmogoyf's characteristic-defining ability as per this ruling:

6/1/2011: If the chosen creature has a characteristic-defining ability that sets its power and/or toughness, that ability will not be copied. For example, if Quicksilver Gargantuan copies a Nightmare, it will not gain the ability that sets its power and toughness to the number of Swamps you control. As such, it will remain a 7/7.

I now need to look through the comp rules to make sure everything works they way I think it does (hence, headache), so you're going to have to give me a minute.

I'm fairly certain it stays a 4/4. For the same reason a Quicksilver Gargantuan copying a Tarmogoyf stays a 7/7.

Levelers are weird though, so I'm not 100% sure on this one. Can anyone else confirm?
