Runechanter's Pike Discussion

erabel on Talrand's Party of One

(comes back to comments a week later like an asshat)

Son-of-Mace: I used to run Proteus Staff a long time ago, for exactly that purpose (stacking the whole deck). In doing so, however, I made a boring game for my opponents wherein I always had the proper answer to any card they would play at the cost of 2U and a cantrip. It wasn't fun for my opponents, and it didn't engage me the same way just using cantrips did, so it got the cut.

enpc: I had not, and when you suggested it, I considered it (it's a nice way to fuel Runechanter's Pike , at least), but then I checked the price tag. Fifteen dollars for a single card is not something I'm willing to pay right now. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I used to run 2x Runechanter's Pike along with my 2x snappys. Made the switch to Treasure Cruise and I'm loving it.

ChiefBell you like Dig Through Time more? I'm running a lot of 1x like VClique and Keranos. Dig or Cruise?

Then you should change the format to Duel Commander.

Consider Military Intelligence since it triggers when geist attacks.

Also why no Runechanter's Pike ? Serum Visions ?

Myogenesis, one thing with Talrand, Sky Summoner is he doesn't put an clock on the opponents, by the time he is played the cards in hand will be decreasing, and the tokens won't put enough damage in to be worth it, while he dragon does. Runechanter's Pike is ok but he takes up a turn and It doesn't put great tempo on the opponent but I'll test a singular copy. Thanks for commenting.

Weakest link seems to be the phantasmal creatures, the bears are fine but I would think about replacing Phantasmal Dragon with Talrand, Sky Summoner , a much more solid win-con. Also with all the sorceries/instants, think about Runechanter's Pike for Delver of Secrets  Flip , nasty combo!

I considered it, but my group has a habit of exiling graveyards so there's a good chance Runechanter's Pike would provide little benefit. Leering Emblem fits the theme better.

I like copy spells because they can double as a counterspell if needed. When I make the next round of edits I will consider adding another. I never keep up enough mana to buy back Reiterate normally, but if Narset is casting it for free I could buy it back for cheap. Thanks!

Know leering emblem is boss as fuck, but try out Runechanter's Pike instead.

I can certainly understand that your plan is different. I will point out that Snapcaster Mage doesn't synergize as poorly with Runechanter's Pike as you think, because it only takes one power away and can actually wield the pike should you need it to. That's why I think it's worth including even if your main kill is infect. Price
