Scud422 on Ass Whuppin' rules questions

1 month ago

Before Unstable comes out, I figured I should get all my Ass Whuppin' questions answered before I Radiate it in a sidegame during the draft.
1. Do you have to see the cards in the game from your seat, or is it enough to be able to see part of the game?
2. Obviously you can't have Ass Whuppin' target something with Shroud or Protection from (W, B, sorcery, etc.). But can you target something with Hexproof? Oracle says that "this can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control." I don't think I count as the opponent of someone in another game.

Hi,

I like your deck because it's about smashing the opponents face in pure and simple!

I think you already made a really good job with your card choices. Many of those I would have suggested as well.

Here are the few that still come into my mind:

  • Illusionist's Bracers would economize mana if you activate the ability of Kumano, Master Yamabushi at least three times (assumed you play and equip the bracers the same turn you want to start shooting)

  • with Basilisk Collar your commander becomes a machine gun, because dealing one deathtouch damage to a creature suffices to kill it. It might also be good to gain some life with the collar here and then, though lifelink does only work with combat damage.

  • Repercussion has huuuge combo potential in this deck. It might be even dangerous for yourself. But normally you should be able to play it in a way that it hurts your opponents more than yourself. Imagine playing Blasphemous Act or Chandra's Ignition while this is on board and your opponent having 2 or 3 creatures. It will often be a game ender.

  • Commander's Sphere as another Mind Stone, Hedron Archive

  • maybe play Mind's Eye or Seer's Sundial

  • Radiate is a funny card

  • and why don't you play Skullclamp? It doesn't work with the ability of Kumano, Master Yamabushi because the creatures won't die, but you have enough sweepers and burn effects in this deck to cash in a lot of draws when you equip your creatures with skullclamp before.

  • you could use some land destruction as well: Volcanic Offering, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge

  • Stranglehold establishes parity between you and all the black, green and blue decks that have the ability to play a lot of tutors. It is a great card and a bit underrated I must say.

  • Braid of Fire generates mana that you can use for Kumano, Master Yamabushis ability in your upkeep

That's all for now. I hope my comments are helpful.

I also think that Shattering Spree is better than By Force, because the former is more difficult to counter.

And Radiate is a funny card that might have some applications in this deck.

Yes I meant it would be like Insurrection. But I don't think you realize how the spell works. If you cast Traitorous Blood and then you target it with Radiate, a copy of Traitorous Blood will be put on stack for EACH creature it could target. That means that you will steal every creature of every player so it is the same as Insurrection.

And when combined with Rite of Replication it will make a copy of every creature of every player (including you) and if you kick Rite of Replication it will make 5 copies of every creature instead.

Hi Sheld,

I think you meant to say that Radiate could be another Insurrection if combined with steal spells. Not really. I could combine it with some other stealing spells but at most it would be like another form of Blatant Thievery; not another insurrection.

My main concern however, is that you need a massive amount of available mana for the combo to pay off really well. I could for instance use Radiate to copy my cheapest steal spell Traitorous Blood. It would be the same effect as Blatant Thievery, except it would cost eight mana (instead of Blatant's 7), I wasn't allowed to keep the creatures stolen and the creatures stolen would have trample.

It's a nice idea but I'm not going to use it.

Sheld on I'll hold on to that for you!

Hi NV_1980!

I just realized that Radiate might be pretty good card in this deck. It is basically another Resurrection when combined with one of your steal spells or it can be a really cool combo with Rite of Replication! :D

So recently, while test playing my Melek, Izzet Paragon, I discovered a really funny combo with Arcbond +Radiate, that could potentially end games while being just super silly.

Does anybody have any other really weird combos/synergies they use?

You choose a target for Game of Chaos as you cast it. There is no way to change the target later except for spells and abilities like Redirect, which you cannot cast or activate while Game of Chaos is resolving. Therefore, "target opponent" remains the same during resolution.

As for Radiate, each of the copies is a different object, and will not share any doubling with the original. The different targets are chosen as Radiate resolves, and also cannot be changed except for spells and abilities like Redirect.

See Comp. Rules 114 and Comp. Rules 706, specifically Rule 114.1 for targeting.
