Shatter Discussion

Dracoson on How does Lavinia work with ...

Neither case is a "perfect" lock, but they are pretty close. Both of them can be dealt with via on board abilities. In Omen Machine's case, if they already have access to an answer (Shatter, Reclamation Sage, and the like), they can just use it. Knowledge Pool can be dealt with by cards cast from other zones besides the hand. Flashing back Ancient Grudge for example, or by an uncounterable spell out from under the pool (Abrupt Decay). In reality, though, both would likely prompt concessions as they will quickly know whether they can get out from under it in a reasonable amount of time.

If the group you play in does partial mulligans I would drop 2 lands. If not stay at 38 Reito Lantern this card is just not good enough with most of the deck. It's really good with Tunnel Vision. I think Jagged Poppet can get cut. He has no evasive ways to him so he will get blocked. You've got some pretty good removal I think Shatter can get cut. Cabal Ritual and Dark Ritual are one time effects of ramp therea much better rituals then those. Undercity Plague isnt that good, if that card didn't give them the choice of anything it would be better. That's all I got for now.

ForceGaia on Izzet trigger burn

All are very valid points. So if i lose the Wizard's Lightning and Wizard's Retort I'll have 8 slots to fill.

I have enough draw in Radical Idea and Risk Factor, so rather than Opt I'm thinking Disperse or your Sonic Assault idea. This is mainly because I'm thinking this deck will have issues with stompy. Disperse allows a bounce in their turn, and hold a counter for the recast, while sonic happens twice and allows me to inflict more damage. So ultimately i'm thinking 3xShock, 3xDisperse, 2xEssence Scatter//Negate. Sonic Assault can stay in the SB for now.

Demolish is only there as I forgot Smelt and Shatter existed - its was mainly my brain going "Erm, how do I deal with artifacts?" and not coming up with an optimal solution; but now Disperse can do that, for the amount of artifacts I'll probably see. As much as i'd like to destroy land in a multicoloured driven format, it's ultimately not going to do much, and Alpine Moon will only assist their fixing.

Honestly, i see what you mean about Adeliz, the Cinder Wind - he was mainly in there due to his keywords, the all-wizard-prowess was a bonus. However, I'd probably add another Electrostatic Field instead of another Niv-Mizzet, Parun; the idea of a second had already crossed my mind, but I'm not 100% sold on the idea of having a second one with his mana cost.

A55Destroyer69 on The Fat Red Line - Purphoros EDH

2 months ago

one better on Fellwar Stone would be Mind Stone. The difference between them is that fellwar will quite possibly be tapping for, essentially, colourless mana and that's it. Mind Stone, on the other hand, will tap for colourless mana AND can draw you a card if you start to flood. This cannot be done with Fellwar Stone, and since you have 36 lands that add R in some way, you're probably never going to need it to tap for ...

Also, there's a bunch of stuff in the deck that either isn't needed or there's far better substitutes -

Some cards you may want to put in the deck instead would be:

or, for a less budget-friendly approach:

By the way, Insurrection and similar effects steal your opponents' creatures, and then, unless the opponent has an Avacyn. This basically means that you get to steal all of your opponents' creatures, and then destroy them ALL (from targetting yourself with Mogg Infestation) and then that's almost always a "I win the game" synergy.

Zealous Conscripts is an infinite combo piece with kiki, since his ability is unconditional, meaning your stuff, your opponents' stuff. you basically get infinite mana if you have an Ashnod's Altar out, and you also deal infinite damage with Purphoros out.

kiki-jiki is just generally great in Purphoros EDH, since you can copy your Emrakul's Hatcher, SG Commander or Solemn Simulacrum (also thins deck and draws cards) each turn.

Vandalblast is generally good removal in red decks, as it's a one-sided artifact wrath, and if not it's just a Shatter, which is still not bad. Fiery Confluence is kind of the better-but-worse version of this, as it's more versatile, treated as a pyroclasm effect, or as additional pings from purphoros, or as artifact removal, just...less.

Solemn Simulacrum is generally decent - gets a land out of your deck, draws a card when it dies. Not much bad.

Panharmonicon is AMAZING!!! basically, you play an emrakul's hatcher and you get 2 triggers, giving you +1 mana potetial, and then you got 7 creatures into play, so that's 7 triggers from purphoros... but he's also ETB, so you get 14 triggers

-> that's 28 damage from 5 mana

Goblin Warrens isn't really that amazing, but you basically get +1 goblins, and 3 triggers for , which can just slowly eat at your opponents' life totals.

Empty the Warrens is also kind of similar, as you'll only ever really be playing it for 6-8 goblins, but that's still a solid 12 damage for 4 mana (value).

Kher Keep is quite similar, as I find with my deck that there are often better options at hand (literally. hehe...), but it is still, I guess, an emergency situation, last stand sort of thing, where you have just such dead draws, and so you just get to ping for each turn.

If you feel like your deck still doesn't get to a comfortable position with its mana, you can consider the following:

These cards will surely help you out. Although Gauntlet of Power will also potentially benefit your opponents, should you really care if they're just going to die in a few turns? Probably not. For just less than Caged Sun. Essentially, based of what I just stated, Gauntlet of Power is better (and Gauntlet of Might is best - less again XD).

in addition to the Gauntlet effects, you could add in this little series of mana rocks. Mind Stone can replace Fellwar Stone, for reasons stated previously, but then on top of that, there is Hedron Archive, which can draw you 2 cards, and Dreamstone Hedron draws 3. I don't really think that the two expensive ones really conform to the deck as well, but they're still considerations, I guess.

So, most of these cards aren't really that exciting. Avatar of Fury is pretty solid, but doesn't really interact with Purphoros much, apart from being a creature...

Guttersnipe definitely doen't fit in. You're running 23 spells, and I'd say that you'd need to run closer to 40 spells to consider him.

Young Pyromancer is just in the list because of my own personal thoughts on him, and I don't really think he's that fantastic in a "creature etb" deck like purphoros. He does make tokens, so all your spells essentially have +2 damage to opponents, but again, there are only 23 spells in the deck. If it was something more like Zada, Hedron Grinder, where he relies on going wide with creatures, that's a little different.

Devastating Summons is also kind of dodgy in this deck. You sacrifice some lands for 2 creatures. I'd much rather sacrifice X lands for X creatures.

Now, don't get me wrong. This deck is a burn deck, but normal burn spells, such as Sizzle are not very good. This is commander, where each player gets 40 life. Burning with 3 damage from such effects will take ages, and there's only so many unique ones. You're best off replacing it with something that will further your gamestate, such as kiki-jiki, Panharmonicon or Impact Tremors.

Mass Mutiny is kind of fine. The problem with it is that it's only one creature, when you could take every creature, without targetting. This means that your opponent can't protect their creatures from getting stolen without using countermagic. Also, stated above, Insurrection + Mogg Infestation is an almost guaranteed game-winning play, which can't really be done with just 3 more creatures.

Scour from Existence is unconditional removal that gets past Avacyn, but is really quite expensive - 7 mana to exile a creature. If it really requires this to get rid of it, you've messed something up...

Conjurer's Closet is kind of alright, but it's really not that fantastic. You would be best taking it out for a tutor, such as Goblin Matron, Imperial Recruiter or Gamble. These cards will help you find more stuff, like kiki-jiki, SG Commander or others that will be just as, if not more, effective than whoever is already in play.

Endless Atlas is fine, if you want to pay so much mana just to draw a couple of cards. I use Mind's Eye, which may be more expensive to cast, but it's cheaper to draw, and also can draw more than just 1 card each turn.

Madblind Mountain is interesting, but not necessary. It does let you shuffle your library (for whatever reason), but apart from that, it's just a slowland. You can tutor it up with a panorama, but what does it actually contribute to?

chirz2792 on What Color Identity is best ...

2 months ago

What's your budget for this? Lion's Eye Diamond isn't cheap and the price isn't going down anytime soon if ever. Null Brooch is something you could try for a similar effect.

  1. Doesn't seem that great. I know it can be manipulated but I've never tried so I'm not really sure. My best guess would be that they find some way to donate it or they get their opponent's to negative life then sacrifice it.

  2. Grafdigger's Cage should be pretty easy to get rid of in /. You have stuff like Abrade, Shatter, Vandalblast to get rid of it. Best way to protect against Bojuka Bog is stuff that gives you hexproof like Witchbane Orb and Orbs of Warding. Ashes of the Abhorrent and Leyline of the Void are difficult to get rid of in your colors, your best chance is to use colorless stuff like Unstable Obelisk, Scour from Existence, Karn Liberated, and Spine of Ish Sah.

BackwardsChart on Noyan Dar, Creatureless... I promise...

I try to stay away from non Instant or Sorcery solutions, also, any lands that come into play tapped. That said, Deserted Temple would be a beast here, also, I agree, the more I play this deck the more I realize it needs more ramp. I will definitely add The signet, and probably the Sphere, but what to cut?

also, Consecrate Land? what a weird card, if I can find one it's definitely going in.

I used to run Darksteel Garrison, but in my meta there is a lot of artifact hate, It usually ends up eating 5 mana and getting Shattered.

thanks for the responses!!

Penguno on How does Perplexing Chimera interact ...

3 months ago

Situation:

An opponent has Perplexing Chimera and I have Wort, the Raidmother with a goblin token. I cast something, like Shatter and tap my 2 creatures to conspire it. If my opponent uses his perplexing chimera trigger to gain control of the spell, does he also gain control of the copy as well? Does this rule also apply to other effects that copy spells, like storm, reverberate, etc?

Epicpotato on Nekusar or Aurelia?

5 months ago

So, this may be a little slanted because I have played and curated my Karador Combo deck (Shameless Plug) almost exclusively for three years. I have loved every second of that deck. However, I found that people did not enjoy playing against me ... until they began running graveyard hate and exile based removal.

You see a lot of the time people will hum and haw until they find a way to stop you because "it is not fair". They are right. It is not fair. It is not fair to run your deck totally freely against decks that are not prepared to deal with it. That's the whole point of a metagame. If you have a consistent playgroup then they will be able to run simple artifact/enchantment hate and/or spot removal for Nekusar and/or counter spells that will dead the so-called "unfun" wincons. Then you can tune your deck to have alternate wins/protect your wincons. Then they will find a way to deal with the protection... the cycle continues Ad Nauseam.

In short, run the thing you feel would be the most fun, but don't be a d**k about it and let the other players try to hate you out. Tell your friends that maybe running one or two Shatter effects isn't the worst idea, since there are plenty of cards like that that aren't dead every game. See Fiery Intervention.

I wish you luck! Have fun with whatever you choose, this is commander after all.
