Ring of Three Wishes Discussion

MagicMarc on Tutor me on Tutors

To put in any commander deck regardless of color choices: Ring of Three Wishes and Planar Bridge.

Also, a non-traditional type of tutoring like Liliana Vess and similar walkers or tap to search creatures like Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero.

A card that's kind of like Planar Bridge is Ring of Three Wishes though you can only activate it 3 times you can probably win through three tutors especially if you are adding Combos.

DemonDragonJ on Should Tutors Have Additional Effects?

3 months ago

WotC has stated that they are not printing "tutors" as frequently as they once did, but they thankfully have not abandoned them, entirely, as made clear by the recent reprints of Idyllic Tutor in Theros: Beyond Death and Grim Tutor in Core Set 2021, as well as their promise to reprint the fetchlands, at some point, this year, for which I am very glad, as such cards are very powerful and useful.

However, I rarely use tutors in my own decks, because I have realized that all that a tutor does is to exchange one card in a player's hand for another card (or, in the case of the fetchlands, exchange one card on the battlefield for another card), granting no actual card advantage.

In my mind, tutors are most useful if they can be used repeatedly (which is why I have Ring of Three Wishes in every one of my EDH decks), if they can search for multiple cards (such as Diabolic Revelation) or provide an additional benefit, such as Rune-Scarred Demon, so that a player is not merely exchanging one card for another.

What does everyone else say about this? Should tutors provide additional benefits?

First thing, I may have missed it but I don't believe I saw anything that gave your creatures haste which means if you cast Primal Surge they wont be able to attack and won't win that turn, then the next turn you'll go to draw and lose unless you somehow get Vigor in the graveyard but then it would still be a turn before attacking. There are three cards I recommend to fix that, Concordant Crossroads is cheap to cast if you draw it but it gives your opponents haste too, however it doesn't matter if you win that turn. Next there's Surrak, the Hunt Caller which only gives your stuff haste but costs more to cast, then there's Akroma's Memorial which is the most expensive to cast but the best of the three. I assume you don't need haste usually so I'd recommend choosing only one of them.

Second, I really like Primal Surge as a wincon (it's cool in this deck with all permanents) and think you should play tutors to help find it, Ring of Three Wishes and Planar Portal are two permanents that tutor for any card, which will triple your chance of getting to Primal Surge, and while looking at tutors that were permanent I found Planar Bridge puts any permanent directly on the battlefield, which includes Craterhoof Behemoth, The Great Henge, or even the other tutors.

Lastly, I'm a little disappointed your hulk smash deck doesn't include Worldspine Wurm, kinda hurts my feels as someone who owns like 10 copies for all my mono-green big creature decks in standard and EDH. (Honorable Mention Mossbridge Troll, sadly he doesn't have trample but he can't die and turns 10 power from other creatures into 20 power, if you can reliably give him trample he's op)

P.S. My mono-green player took over and I accidentally typed a whole essay, my bad.

StopShot on Mortify or Mythos of Nethroi?

6 months ago

I would instead cut Aura Mutation for Mythos of Nethroi as the mutation can’t trigger the liege nor can it hit creatures like Mortify.

Also remove Ring of Three Wishes for Increasing Ambition. You will have to spend 20 mana for the ring to cast it and activate it over the course of 3 to 4 turns to maximize its value. Increasing Ambition will cost you 13 total mana to both cast and recast it over a span of 1 to 2 turns. Both cards will find you 3 cards in your deck, so I think the Ambition is a strict upgrade.

Arktaurous on Edgar Markov Vampires

I love Eldrazi Monument. That could protect you from certain removal. You could throw a couple more tutors in there like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor to help you get what you need more quickly.

There is also Dark Petition, Beseech the Queen, Insidious Dreams, Increasing Ambition,Behold the Beyond, Razaketh's Rite, Demonic Collusion, Diabolic Revelation to name a few.

Ring of Three Wishes can also help get cards in some decks.

Shapeshifter's Ring

Artifact - Equipment

: Equipped creature loses all creature types and becomes the creature type of your choice.

: Until end of turn, equipped creature gets +1/-1 or -1/+1. If this is your second time activating this ability this turn, it costs less to activate.


Make another ring of some kind (keep it PG!). It doesn't have to be an equipment (like Jinxed Ring, Aladdin's Ring, Ring of Three Wishes) but rings for the hands of your creatures makes sense in this game (see Ring of Evos Isle, Ring of Kalonia, Ring of Thune, etc.). Also, get more creative than just porting over rings from Lord of the Rings.

RiskyBiznu on Glissa Sunseeker (F**k Your Artifacts)

cPute thanks for leaving a comment! I appreciate the love, artifacts need to be kept in check! The deck's big finishers are Arcbound Ravager or Bane of Progress once effects like Mycosynth Lattice are on the board. Once everything is an artifact, we can go all-in and finish the opponents off with a big creature after destroying everything they own. We can also use Karn, the Great Creator to stop their lands for tapping for mana. There a couple of artifact tutors like Inventors' Fair and Ring of Three Wishes to help us get all the pieces we need.
