Chhris on I Will Take What is Mine with Fire and Blood

I run a Mayael the Anima that is also about as Timmy as it gets, and I definitely feel the frustration you feel when your alpha strike is undone by instant speed removal. The solution I've found is to try and be a Timmy, whilst playing like a Spike, and wait for the perfect opportunity (Opponents tapped out) to seize the chance for an Alpha strike and kill the damn blue player.

I found that getting rid of my removal package was the first key. 1, I found it counter-intuitive to my deck - I want creatures on the field, so every time I was holding a board wipe, it was a dead card. Your dragons win the day with their size and flying anyway, You needn't fear any other board state. You have access to white - you could run a protection package? Stuff like rootborn defences etc, that will stop the killing, Aw hell, you have access to blue? If Cyclonic Rift keeps ruining your day, force your opponents to get creative against you, run Syncopate or Scatter to the Winds and counter their Rift! That'll teach them - and you'll win more games. Screw it all and run your own Cyclonic Rift - you can cast in an end step to ensure there are no blockers for your dragons, and guarantee and open door to the opponent!

Also, Bone Dragon AKA Viserion for flavour. Also Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner Gets Hexproof, until you decide to swing with her.

I think with the obvious and imminent danger of an infect deck, you might find that your creatures or your attacks become susceptible to instant-speed removal. You could consider fine-tuning your own package of instant spells to run counter spells to combat this (having access to blue is good for something).

Disallow or Spell Swindle are good commander-power counter spells, but actually my first thought for you was Scatter to the Winds , as you can actually Awaken a Land, bolster it, and use it to poisondeath your opponent. Could be a play they dont see coming.

stetsonfirebrand - If Lightning Bolt isn't common in your meta, then that'll make Scatter to the Winds a lot better then, because your lands will be safe, and if they really want to destroy it, they'll probably waste better removal like Path to Exile or some other hard removal. Of course if they do this, they just wasted the card, but you'd be totally fine with that. As long as there's no creatures that will also be problematic for it, then the 3/3 will be a lot more powerful, and it will be a genuine threat as their health slowly ticks away, and it could be enough to bait out some hard removal so you can play your Frost Titan next turn in peace. That or at least lower their life a bit for a faster AEtherling kill.

Also, Disallow is 100% better than both of them, so if you have the money, use that instead :P The best feeling is countering a planeswalker ultimate... God I love that card... Stifle's big brother.

stetsonfirebrand - I was considering 2 Elixir of Immortality, but wasn't positive if I needed a second. It has always been on my radar however, so don't you worry.

As for Scatter to the Winds, I think it's a bit risky. First off, it would most likely be replacing Dissolve, and I'm not sure if I want to give up the scry. The majority of the time, it will be acting as a downgraded Dissolve, and when you do use it for the creature, you're spending 6 mana, and making a land a 3/3, which can die to Lightning Bolt. I personally don't like making a land that vulnerable. I also don't think it's what the deck needs, as I have the walls for blockers, and a 3/3 with no evasion isn't a reliable win-con, just more of an annoyance to them. I personally wouldn't play it, as I mostly don't like making my land Lightning Boltable, and I'd just rather have my trusty Dissolve. Maybe if you weren't running the walls, a 3/3 blocker would be a lot more valuable, especially cause it would be 2 cards in 1. But because I have blockers, and don't really need a 3/3 beater, I don't think it'll fit into this deck. If it was a 4/4, or had some sort of protection, I would like it a lot more.

But that's just my opinion of course, and this deck is just a guideline. Definitely customize it as you like.

I myself play a very budget mono blue deck for fun despite how much hate I get. Scatter to the Winds is a good counterspell that can also help act as a small beater when you need to

Neotrup on Can Elite Arcanist cast copy ...

1 year ago

will be the sum. For example, if both Wizard's Lightning and Wizard's Retort are exiled, you'll have to pay to use Elite Arcanist's ability. On resolution you'll copy both cards, and be able to cast either or both (or neither) without paying their mana costs.

Overwhelming Denial + Unstable Footing will cost you , with the option to pay another to deal 5 damage. You will not be able to pay the surge cost, so any abilities check whether surge was paid will not work.

Rebound is an ability that only applies to a spell cast from your hand, as these copies are cast from exile, it does not apply.

Reverberate + Shadow Rift works as you expect, you'll be able to target Shadow Rift with Reverberate as long as you cast Reverberate second while resolving Elite Arcanist's ability.

Howl of the Horde is a sorcery and cannot be exiled with Elite Arcanist. It also only affects a spell cast after it resolves, so it wouldn't be able to copy Twincast.

I have no idea what you're trying to do with Exquisite Firecraft.

Dispel + Wizard's Lightning will require you to pay , but not require you to cast both cards. You can simply cast the Wizard's Lightning.

Lightning Bolt + Scatter to the Winds will let you cast Lightning Bolt and counter it with Scatter to the Winds, but you will not be allowed to pay the awaken cost, so you can't animate a land with it.

With Kaho, Minamo Historian, if the ability is copied, you'll end up exiling 6 cards. They won't be distinct, any time you activate the ability you'll choose one of the cards still exiled and cast it. You won't get to cast two unless you copy the activated ability.

I'll get back to you one Mindswipe, my mind is burning out.

When you copy a spell, you keep the mode and target the same. Most things that copy a spell will let you choose new targets after copying, but nothing to my knowledge lets you change modes.
