Whenever you cast an instant or a sorcery spell, you may pay UR. If you do, copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.
Whenever another nontoken creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay GU. If you do, put a token that's a copy of that creature onto the battlefield.
I'm not playing much red. Should I be?
Also, I can't see Temporal Adept doing well in my playgroup just because people run a TON of sweepers, and crystal shard seems so useless without Maelstrom (though I'm sure you get people really good if they tap out)
I'll definitely add in Cloudstone Curio . I also like the idea of Scroll Rack as well, but that's a card that's a little bit tricky for me to get a hold of in trades. I'm on the fence about Temporal Adept and Crystal Shard because they just don't seem strong enough.
Riku of Two Reflections is awesome! What would you take out for it?
Thanks so much for the careful reflection and suggestions! I really appreciate it!
P.S. What do you think about Misthollow Griffin ?
From my experience, Wanderer decks work best when you have multiple ways of throwing your commander back into your hand so that you can drop him repeatedly. To accomplish this, I run Crystal Shard , Cloudstone Curio , and Temporal Adept . The latter of the three is my personal favorite since it combos stupidly well with Prophet of Kruphix , but it does require a great deal of ramping to make it a viable strategy.
When it comes to other cards that I find fun to use, I have developed a strong fondness for Riku of Two Reflections since he potentially let's me get twice as much value out of a number of cards, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker since he makes Cloudstone Curio ridiculous, Scroll Rack so that I can help influence what I Cascade into, and Sword of Feast and Famine so that I can do silly things like cast Wanderer twice on my turn.
Any who, the deck looks pretty solid as is, but I hope you find at least a few of my suggestions helpful.
@mbern: I fully agree on this. BUT: The power level should be ok... just to mention there are very high power decks in our playround like a Memnarch EDH with many infinite combos or a Riku of Two Reflections EDH with many awesome synergies or a Kaalia of the Vast with many board clears and an army of OP angels/demons/dragons. In the end i think i will remove some of those cards :-)
can really change a game.
If Animar has a few counters and creatures are coming out cheap or free...Riku of Two Reflections
is a great card.
Anything with a colorless Kicker can be paid with Animar's ability. Mold Shambler is great removal.
is mana and an extra card every turn.
Finally, an absolutely amazing card with Animar is Scuttlemutt
. Either mana or change a creatures color to match Animar's protection.
Ok guys its time to declare the positions. Btw i messed up in the point thing above. The real points are: 1. 10p/2. 9p/3. 8p/4. 7p/5. 6p/6. 5p/7. 4p/8. 3p/9. 2p/10. 1p
Anyways here are the generals with most points.
Now for top 3!
3rd Riku of Two Reflections 27p
2nd Maelstrom Wanderer 29p
And now... for the winner who got more than 30 points!
1st Kaalia of the Vast 37p
Of course, my man! I would love to help in this! I don't think I would ever turn down someone asking for help, so don't feel like you're bothering me xD On top of the fact that I wouldn't tell anyone to buzz off (unless they're not actually looking for help), I see you as a pretty nice guy, and pretty insightful in magic topics while still staying humble.
So this is a summary of the restrictions for my recommendations:
In Simic, there are three options for you:
Edric, Spymaster of Trest : Edric is often played with a token theme, but really, unblockable is more synergistic route, because you can also play other spells that check if cards deal combat damage to players, like the swords and Bident of Thassa . MagicalHacker - Edric, Spymaster of Trest
Kruphix, God of Horizons : Although you will see a lot of big creatures in my deck abusing Kruphix's ability of storing mana, I also have a lot of creatures that have p/t based on the number of cards in your hand and lots of repeating draw effects to make each one if them huge because of the infinite hand size. MagicalHacker - Kruphix, God of Horizons
Vorel of the Hull Clade : This guy is a bit more gimmicky than most, but with cards like Darksteel Reactor , it's super fun. You also can combo with modular creatures (like Arcbound Crusher ) which is pretty fun too. MagicalHacker - Vorel of the Hull Clade
With Sultai, there's only one I'd recommend:
In Temur, there are two options worth considering I'd say:
Animar, Soul of Elements : Even though this uses big creatures as the win condition, the fact that you can chain colorless creatures with him to cast them for 0 mana is worth talking about. On top of that, with a Glimpse of Nature effect, you can get a huge board state and have a full hand at the same time. It's ridiculous! MagicalHacker - Animar, Soul of Elements
Riku of Two Reflections : While a lot of people like doubling instants/sorceries, I like permanents more. Not only do they have lasting and repeating effects that need to be removed to stop the value, but they also are harder to remove if you're constantly making more copies if them. On top of that, ETBs are doubled for just three mana, so a blink deck simple to Roon can be built with this guy as the commander. The advantage is that the doubles are accompanied by a body. MagicalHacker - Riku of Two Reflections
Lastly, Bant has four final options:
Angus Mackenzie : If you liked playing turbofog, this guy is perfect for you! Darksteel Reactor and Azor's Elocutors are gonna be the best here, and that's all I have to say. MagicalHacker - Angus Mackenzie
Derevi, Empyrial Tactician : Using unblockable creatures are going to give you lots of value again, but some of the best tap abilities are ging to be tokens, so they're good too. MagicalHacker - Derevi, Empyrial Tactician
Phelddagrif : While some think he is only good for directionless group hug, some cards hurt opponents for having lots of creatures, so Suture Priest and Dingus Staff . He's also super political because people like life gain and getting tokens and drawing cards. MagicalHacker - Phelddagrif
Rubinia Soulsinger : Last but certainly not least, this lady is really powerful because she is a Control Magic that can flicker at your untap step, which gets even better when you can sacrifice those creatures and untap her with Thornbite Staff . There's a lot of variety of what you can do with her though. MagicalHacker - Rubinia Soulsinger
Hopefully I represented each enough for their power levels while inspiring you to like some of them :)
