Scar Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Snake Infect

This looks very cool. Scar is a card you should considering removing. You have plenty of ways to give minus-counters, and a card that puts one counter and doesn't even cantrip is not good enough. Maybe take it out for a four-drop? Having just one card there that even is a finisher without any ramp seems suboptimal.

Raging_Squiggle on Does Stack+Priority work like this?

11 months ago

116.1a A player may cast an instant spell any time they have priority. A player may cast a noninstant spell during their main phase any time they have priority and the stack is empty.

116.3b The active player receives priority after a spell or ability (other than a mana ability) resolves.

116.3d If a player has priority and chooses not to take any actions, that player passes. If any mana is in that player’s mana pool, they announce what mana is there. Then the next player in turn order receives priority.

116.4. If all players pass in succession (that is, if all players pass without taking any actions in between passing), the spell or ability on top of the stack resolves or, if the stack is empty, the phase or step ends.

Reading these rules, you can determine that your course of action was correct. There is always a round of priority before every object on the stack resolves. You can certainly wait for Scar to resolve, and then in response to Sure Strike , cast Warping Wail . Note that you could even let Sure Strike resolve and still cast Warping Wail because the satyr token would still have 1 toughness.

As for combat, the game will always proceed trough all combat steps if a creature has been declared an attacker. There will be a Declare Blocker Step (and a round of priority at end of said step) even if defending player has no creatures.

Note: on your number 2, there isn’t a second round of priority to pass through before Xenagos, the Reveler resolves. It’s just one round and done.

I have 4 life and no creatures It‘s my opponents turn (Mainphase)

GP= gain(s) priority

PP= pass(es) priority

1- Opponent casts Xenagos, the Reveler and PP, i have no counterspell so I PP

2- He (opponent) PP and then I PP again, so Xenagos, the Reveler resolves (because a spell/ability only resolves if both players PP without doing something, right?)

3- My opponent GP and activates Xenagos, the Reveler 's 0 ability, then we all PP etc.

4- Jump to combat (we both PP as Mainphase ends)

5- He declares his 2/2 as attacker and at the end of the declare attackers step he GP, casts Sure Strike on his creature and PP

6- I respond with Scar and PP (stack is now bottom: Sure Strike , top: Scar )

7- We both PP and Scar resolves (making the 2/2 a 1/1)

8- After Scar resolves, my opponent GP and PP, so I can cast Warping Wail and my opponent GP again (stack is now bottom: Sure Strike , top: Warping Wail )

9- We both PP and [[card:Warping Wail] resolves, exiling his 1/1 creature

10- We both PP and Sure Strike would resolve now but has no target so it‘s “denied“

My Question: Is everything correct? (especially 2 and 8?) And also, is there a declare blockers step if defending player has no creatures?

Hmm, this list seems related to some sort of theme/story. You have Stuff like Painful Lesson and Scar , Hatred and Anger . IDK :)

OK so I'd not been active on TO for a little while and after clearing up a bunch of notifications I popped over to my list of decks to find.... this nonsense:

I'd titled the list: "Lost".

Now. I'm pretty sure I've only stuck a 5c commander into the list because I had to put something, however, I now have no memory or idea what I was thinking of or where this was going - any thoughts on what my connection was!!??

Gratz! this idea looks cool Have you considered Grisly Salvage? i mean, you can take back you eidolons at instant speed and maybe you could also add one to your hand. I also found Pit Fight who could be useful to remove blockers, or Scar as well

Crow_Storm on No Friends? No Problem (Budget Infect\Wither)

1 year ago

I would suggest these revisions to the mainboard: +4 Phyrexian Crusader -4 Scar

-2 Swamp +2 Memorial to Folly

-4 Swamp +4 Inkmoth Nexus (I know this is a budget deck, but I believe this will receive a reprint soon, and while 1-2 copies is expensive, it won't break the wallet)

-2 Septic Rats +2 Ichorclaw Myr

-2 Blowfly Infestation +2 Nest of Scarabs

+1 Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon -1 Virulent Wound
