Whenever a creature is dealt damage, Repercussion deals that much damage to that creature's controller.

Repercussion Discussion

SwiftDeath on Keep hitting yourself

2 weeks ago

I had a multiplayer burn deck I built for a friend a long time ago. This reminds me a lot of that deck but mine was Boros instead of Mardu. I like it more with the third color. Great choice. Some cards to consider are Mizzium Mortars One sided boardwipes are never bad, Fire Covenant for the same reason, Repercussion dealing damage to your opponents creatures now hurts them twice as much. It is a double edged sword mechanic but that is what makes it fun. Burrenton Forge-Tender If used in tandem with Repercussion then you can stack the triggers in a way that deals all the damage to your opponents then when the triggers to deal you damage are the only ones left on the stack sacrifice it to prevent all the damage to you (if any opponents are left alive by this point.) Another option for preventing damage is also Personal Sanctuary.

I like the group slug in combination with a pillowfort idea. Gisela's wording offers a pretty unique opportunity. Triggered effects that would deal 1 damage to you while she is on the board deal no damage to you instead, but double damage to opponents. Manabarbs, AEther Sting, Battle Strain, Burning Earth, Heat of Battle, Rampaging Ferocidon, City of Brass, Talisman of Conviction, Battlefield Forge are all cards that would have their negative effect negated if Gisela is on the field, while opponents would suffer more.

Ankh of Mishra, Psychogenic Probe, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar, Repercussion, Spellshock, Zo-Zu the Punisher would all be cards that have their negative effects mitigated with Gisela out and opponents would suffer a lot more.

You could complement this game plan with pieces like War's Toll, Caltrops, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Glowrider, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Vryn Wingmare, Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse to tax and slow them down while all the slug effects eat away at life totals.

I feel like there's quite a bit of space to be explored in this niche for Gisela.

Rasaru: I see why you compare Exploration and Burgeoning. I think the biggest downside of the latter is that you cannot play lands from your graveyard. I found that to be a very relevant drawback many times.

I am not a big fan of flashy alt wincons. If you ever get to the point that you could win with these cards you are WAY behind the curve. I don't see any problem trying them out in your own build though!

I'm going to check out your list now and let you know what I think!

XinZhao: I think I'll pass on Repercussion for now, but try and slot in Compost if i can find the room. With all the multi-color decks nowadays it seems like it could do some work.

_Arra_: I think the combo is pretty amazing for sure, the problem is that Sylvan Awakening is kind of a dud on it's own. I agree that burn is a good focus though. I won two games this weak without even attacking!

ABigDumbBear the only way to live with that is to give it lifelink if he had taken any damage from Repercussion for example. Since stuffy doll only hits a chosen play you don't have to worry about it dealing damage to you.

PhotogenicParasympathetic on What was your favorite play …

The Simic player popped off, spitting out loads of creatures with loads of +1/+1 counters, and swung out at me. I took 38 square on the jaw, dropped to 2. All I had in play was a Repercussion and a Glorybringer.

On my turn, I cast Insult, then a Dualcaster Mage on the Insult, then attacked with my Glorybringer and exerted. Glorybringer dealt 4 to one of the Simic player's creatures, which doubles to 8 then doubles to 16 - then Repercussion triggered, and shot the player for 16, which doubled to 32, which doubled to 64.

And that's how I killed someone from 40 with Glorybringer's attack trigger, while also 16'ing another player with the Glorybringer itself.

Let's just say my commander, Neheb, the Eternal, lived up to his flavor text.

This is what glory looks like.

XinZhao, Guerte: I think I will slot in Return of the Wildspeaker, but I got a foil Compost, so I might try that out at some point as well. I face mainly black and green in my meta, so it kinda fits well.

I agree with _Arra_, being able to creature tutor out a win with Craterhoof Behemoth is way different then Akroma's Memorial. Memorial definitely lays the hurt on when it comes out, but it very rarely wins games at the same level as Craderhoof.

I was not a fan of Sylvan Awakening when I played it previously. Maybe it is worth a relook.. but I would rather play something else to be honest. I wish our colors had creature sac outlet like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Viscera Seer. What do you think about Repercussion? It plays into the burn strategy and combat as well.

Markoi: I think Radha, Heart of Keld is a fine budget option, but not really needed here. I wont be surprised to see it in future Om_rath decks!

Rasaru: Thanks! I think the deck is pretty amazing too! A good start for a budget built is fixing up the lands. There are many cheaper budget fetches out there, they just make the lands come in tapped most of the time. If you cut the money cards like Gaea's Cradle, Taiga, Wheel of Fortune, and Mana Crypt you will be really close. Most of my decks value is the fact that it is foiled out.

I love Reliquary Tower. I am almost always happy to have it, or hope to draw it. This deck draws a ton of cards, many of which we want to keep in our hands.

Expect an update this week!

Have you played with Repercussion?
Lightmine Field, Repercussion and the goad ability for an alternate wincon. Repercussion does have a similar effect as Bedlam too.

Repercussion is used as a win condition for us. It's been a fairly recent addition but so far seems really good. By comboing it with Blasphemous Act or Arcbond we can deal massive amounts of damage to everyone at once. Since those two cards are good for us anyway as wipes there is little downside to also include Repercussion as a way to close out the game.
