Reins of Power Discussion

mickalopagus on The Hate Game

Hey man here is a deck Ive been playing since 2006 or so. Its been updated since but maybe you can get some ideas. Urborg land is a fantastic idea, I just sold mine too haha.

I recommend Stab Wound over Errant Minion as it prevents damage against you and racks up the damage to boot. Siren's Call is one of my favorites with Propaganda out there. I used to use it with Ensnare which is dirtier, but hey this deck is pretty damn dirty as is ;p. Also with no creatures you can always Reins of Power FTW, which is quite hilarios

I like this take on rashmi, very different from mine :)

Do you find you have enough recursion? If not, Pull from the Deep is a great 2-for-1 recursion card that can bring back your win conditions.

If you find yourself needing more protection while you set up your win condition, I can't recommend Illusionist's Gambit and Reins of Power highly enough as blow-out combat tricks.

i didn't want to necessarily 'stop' people from attacking me, rather...make it so if they do, i prevent it or interrupt it to buy time that way. with cards like: AEtherize, Arachnogenesis, Cyclonic Rift, Mirror Match and Reins of Power. im interested in more types of overpowered fog effects that don't just 'prevent damage'

I was looking for an original new deck to bring to my casual multiplayer play group that I visit once every few weeks.

I found one, +1.

I thought about using Reins of Power instead of Switcheroo but that would just ruin the flavor.

Since we are a group hug deck, we can't have an obvious wincon, otherwise someone might just say, "I'm going to attack you because you could combo off at anytime" and you'll be dead. Reins of Power alone might just have someone attacking you because we do play pillowfort cards.

Instead, our main plan is to mill out the other players when they are low on cards, since we play so many "Each player draws X" type cards, we can actually get other players to mill out from a big prosperity. Another example is that plenty of people play cards like Reliquary Tower to keep whatever they draw, and Windfall has been known to mill out other players.

The other idea here is that you SHOULD be killed last because you can just say "I'm helping you, why attack me?" and other things like that, and since nothing we play is really that scary, people should be worried about the other people at the table, not you.

You also have to remember that people will remember previous games, so your playstyle has to reflect a group-hug method as well.

Zeit fr etwas konstruktive Kritik.. in der Beschreibung steht ja das es sich um eine Sammlung handelt...

also du willst scheinbar marchesa auf kontrolle spielen. Sehr gute Wahl :) fangen wir an..

Karten die ich cutten wrde und dahinter potenzieller ersatz.

Barrage of Expendables ersatz Goblin Bombardment

Breeding Pit cool aber zu schwach. du willst ja eigentlich deine eigenen Kreaturen (oder die von gegnern) saccen.... Tokens verschwinden einfach wieder und dein Comander profitiert nicht davon.

genau wie du noch meiner Meinung nach zu viele Zauber spielst, die dir kontrolle ber einzelne Kreaturen geben. dafr sind die Entchantments einfach zu 1. Mana intensiv und 2. Mana intensiv :P mal eben berflogen und bin auf 6 gekommen. Ist natrlich stark und cool.. aber Domineering Will (spielst du auch) ist viel strker.. du kannst die Kreaturen meistens ja eh saccen und dann gehren sie dir.. auerdem ist der instant :P Reins of Power ist etwas gefhrlicher weil du dann deinen Comander auch nicht mehr kontrolierst :)

Carnage Altarcool aber zu mana intensiv. ich wrde auf die gute alte Skullclamp zurckgreifen. du hast gengend sacc outlets um die zuverlssig zu triggern... und kostet wesentlich weniger mana :)

Life Chisel cool aber zu unflexiebel.

Allgemein willst ja 1 und 1 counter auf deinen kreaturen und dein live unten halten.. sag hallo zu deiner betsten karten :P Unspeakable Symbol

sehr angenehmn das du nicht noch versuchst die komplette blaue counter Schiene mit unter zu bringen.. :)

Du wirst weder mit den Lndern noch mit deinen Mana beschleunigern auskommen (passiert mir auch immer)

habe bislang auch keine zuverlssige draw engin gefunden.. sieht aber so aus als knnte das Spa machen wenns fertig ist. Schreib mir was du von der Kritik hlst :)

As a Mizzix deck, I would probably aim for even more sorceries and instants. Expropriate, Reins of Power, Illusionist's Gambit, Besmirch, Saheeli's Artistry and Desertion from your maybe board are all on theme with your deck.

My deck: Keranos: It's All Mine! has a similar theme.

Like your deck :)
