Rubblebelt Rioters Discussion

Bahoola on Kalamax

3 weeks ago

I was considering taking Kalamax down the elemental path and make him more combat oriented. With cards like Flamekin Harbinger (Cavalier shenanigans) - Forgotten Ancient - Malignus (fun with Fling/Soul's Fire/Chandra's Ignition) - Mulldrifter - Avenger of Zendikar - Omnath, Locus of Rage - Omnath, Locus of the Roil - Risen Reef - Young Pyromancer (and/or other elemental token makers). Still want a lot of spells (preferable instants) to cast.

If u not going elemental and still want creatures to attack with i would suggest token makers and some beefy boys, Rubblebelt Rioters comes to mind or card draw dudes like Oakhame Adversary

Side note, God-Eternal Kefnet is super for the dec no matter what your doing with it.

Nice idea! I just threw this together on MTG:A. I find that Infuriate works super well with arcanist. Giant growth in red means this deck goes fast. Also, Rubblebelt Rioters work to close out the game once the arcanist or the spell gorger are huge.

Domri's Ambush and Rubblebelt Rioters aren't very effective here due to the low power of your creatures. with so few ways to get lands into the grave, Ruination Rioter isn't effective either

Kogarashi on Does Rubblebelt Rioters ability happen ...

Yes.

More precisely, the Combat Phase is broken down into the following:

  • Beginning of Combat Step: things that trigger "at the beginning of combat" trigger here. Players receive priority to cast instants or activate abilities during this step.

  • Declare Attackers Step: this is where effects that trigger "whenever a creature attacks" or similar trigger. First attackers are declared, and then players receive priority. Rubblebelt Rioters will trigger if declared as an attacker here, and when that trigger resolves (in this step), it will get +X/+0.

  • Declare Blockers Step: first blockers are declared and assigned, and then players receive priority. Some things trigger "whenever a creature blocks" or similar and that will happen when the blockers are declared.

  • Combat Damage Step: this is when combat damage is actually dealt, and that is the first thing that happens, after which players receive priority. This is the point where Rubblebelt Rioters will actually deal damage, which will be the X they gained from their trigger unless something else has modified it. An additional combat damage step will happen if a creature involved in combat had first strike or double strike.

  • End of Combat Step: players receive priority before the game moves on to the next Main Phase.

So again, technically the +X/+0 happens after the Rioters attack (because them attacking is what triggers it), but will finish resolving before they actually deal damage.

Let's say you have the Rioters, a 4/4, and a 2/2 on your side of the battlefield. You declare Rioters as an attacker. The ability triggers, and when it resolves, it gets +4/+0 because that's the greatest power among your creatures. Then your opponent gets to decide if they're blocking and with what, and then damage is dealt.

The phrase "whenever [this creature] attacks" specifically refers to it being declared as an attacker during the Declare Attackers step of combat. You declare Rubblebelt Rioters as an attacker, triggering its ability. Once the ability resolves, it will get +X/+0, which happens before blockers are assigned.

So in short, it happens after it attacks, but before any other part of combat is handled.

Rubblebelt Rioters ability says "Whenever Rubblebelt Rioters attacks, it gets +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is the greatest power among creatures you control." Does the +X/+0 happen before it attacks or after?

Seems like Rubblebelt Rioters are just for this deck.
