acbooster on Paying for Reality Smasher with ...

No you cannot. The reason for this is because Herald of Kozilek reduces the cost of your colorless spells by one generic mana, not one colorless mana. This distinction was made with BFZ because of cards like Reality Smasher needing specifically colorless mana, instead of any mana (like Hand of Emrakul).

If the Herald would reduce the colorless component, it would use instead of .

More specific - Can i use the colorless reduction of Herald of Kozilek to pay for the one mana in Reality Smasher that has to be colorless? Thanks for the help!

UBQRLQL on Damned Devotion

Phew.. had my worst FNM ever on friday. Going 1-3 with only winning against budget Allys.

First round against Burn. First match is always close against burn slightly favorable for them. Second match should be the opposite but since I drew 4 lands in a row.. he got me. 0:2

Second round against G/W Allys w/o Collected Company was kinda easy. Although he managed to lucky draw into Eerie Interlude in G2 protecting his team against my Damnation and got another nice topdeck afterwards with Kabira Evangel and swinging for lethal. 2:1

Third round against Bant Eldrazi. G1 went terrible. Turn 2 Thought-Knot Seer into Reality Smasher put enough pressure early on so I just did not came back anytime soon. I won the second game because he was kinda Temple screw.. Spot removal and Ob Nixilis did well jobs. Third game represents the way these decks can perform more often than they should. I Thoughtseize turn 1 into a crap hand with just 2 Eldrazi Temple. He drew into Thought-Knot Seer turn 2, into Reality Smasher turn 3 and another Reality Smasher turn 4. 1:2

Round 4 against G/B Tron. I kept a nice hand with Shadow of Doubt and 2 lands. Got stuck on 2 until it was too late sadly. Karn into World Breaker did not let me come back. Second game I had to mulligan to 5 but managed to start with Extirpate + Ghost Quarter. Sadly my opponent played Pithing Needle on turn 1 against Ghost Quarter (which I did not even played on my turn). This game took quite some time and somehow I could handle one Karn Liberated into Extirpate, Fulminator Mage + Extirpate on his Tron piece and survive 1 attack from Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. Sadly I did not draw any Phyrexian Arena in either games. I even survived his Oblivion Stone and although Erebos did a huge job I could not win the game. Leaving me with 0:2

So that was my sad 1-3 experience and I felt like I did no mistakes at all. Maybe I should have mulliganed the 2-land hand earlier but apart from that the deck sadly underperformed. On the other hand winning against Burn on G1 would have paired me against different types of decks. The metagame breakdown was as far as I remember (only first four decks in correct order): Jeskai Control, Valakut, Grixis Delver, Boros Burn, Naya Burn, Shadow Jund, UB Faeries, GW Ally, BG Tron, Bant Eldrazi, Abzan Elves and me on MBC.

Thought people might be intrested in a small FNM tournament report with underwhelming results ;).

Why so many 3 ofs, my gosh. 4 of exists for a reason, my friend.

Aethersphere Harvester doesn't seem good. Your creatures are generally bigger than a 3/5, even with Lifelink.

Chandra, Torch of Defiance or Chandra, Flamecaller seems a must here. They add removal, and can win the game on their own.

TKS seems a bit eh, given how you only have 4 sources to cast him. If you wanted more colourless, you should build like a 3 colour deck, then you could include Reality Smasher as another big threat.

Gonti seems a bit eh, as the format is very synergy based (zombies) or combo based (marvel) and he doesn't seem so hot versus either.

More Magma Spray. Not a fan of harnessed when you can consistantly tick up to 4 energy to kill heart like you can in UR control.

I like what you are doing here. It really has been difficult deciding on a deck to play, but you are on the same line as me. Only one suggestion as a possibility. Have you thought about Reality Smasher? Seems kind of odd I know, but stick with me for a moment. I have been playing a R/B Eldrazi'ish deck for a week now (only because I threw a deck together with what cards were on hand). Turn 5, drop Glorybringer swing and exert. Turn 6, drop the Reality Smasher and trample your way in. Turn 7, untap them both, swing and exert the Glorybringer. It has worked for me, however, that may be due to the meta at my LGS. Also, waste mana will not be hard with the Aether Hub and Servant of the Conduit.

xaerusblade on Puck out! (Flicker deck)

1 week ago

Firebones675 yes, Reality Smasher is really good, but I think that the deck would leaning towards making into a tron eldrazi deck, I have the complete tron lands. but I would like to stick to the flicker theme,regarding the Ghost Quarter, it is really good if I can get my hands on it.

also regarding the pilgrim and the talisman, which do you think is best to replace them with?

so I would go down to 8 instants then 30 creature? main boarding my finks, and replace the Kitchen Finks in the sideboard with Scavenging Ooze.

Firebones675 on Puck out! (Flicker deck)

Both pilgrim and talisman work. They have their own strengths and weaknesses but they both get the job done and think either could work.

As for the academy, the discard protection can be nice but the fact that it puts the card on top of your library means that you effectively skip your next draw step as you have to put the card back in your hand which can sometimes be worse than just discarding it. It is a may ability so you can always but it into the graveyard, but i havent been impressed by the card and would personally run Ghost Quarter, Gavony Township, or another land in that slot.

For the interlude replacement, Voice of Resurgence is nice but could be tricky to cast reliably. The Kitchen Finksin your sideboard are also good enough to be maindeckable. Scavenging Ooze doesnt have as much synergy with the rest of the deck but it can be cast early, and the graveyard ability/life gain is often relevant. Reality Smasher could be another choice as if you have some mana accelerants or an eldrazi temple you can bash face pretty quickly. Ancient Stirrings can find a land a talisman (if in the deck), thoughtknot or displacer. (also something to do early game)

Epochalyptik on Does ulamog get countered?

1 week ago

Creature spells never have targets. The only permanents that target as spells are Auras.

What's happening here is an ability is triggering when Ulamog is cast. The ability, which is entirely separate from the spell, is doing the targeting. Thus, Reality Smasher is not becoming the target of a spell, and its ability will not trigger.
