As Shimmer enters the battlefield, choose a land type.

All lands of the chosen type have phasing.

Shimmer Discussion

BMHKain on Several things; & some questions ...

@scotchtapedsleeves: Hmmm... Well, I just need to get my mind out of this for now. Backing this on topic like some rando's Uncle's Ratty Old Pickup (Actually, that sounds stupid in my book, considering my current status as an Uncle myself... :/), I still probably need some advice for several things; I have too many decks to cut until the legal 100 card max.

I'm still working on a Doomsday Package. Predict seems good (According to a Primer for this, it counts as 1+2, for a Three Point Avg alone. I'm using Laboratory Maniac , Pact of Negation (Unless Foil is good for you as well.), I don't want to use Lion's Eye Diamond , or Yawgmoth's Will , but I do need a mana source... So, we have three cards to use: Predict , Laboratory Maniac , & Pact of Negation / Foil . Any two ideas that would work here?

Here's some hate though: I'm trying to make a combo w/ Shimmer , but I'm wondering which of the Following is better: Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , or Blanket of Night . The Former is a land, but I dunno if phasing Urborg is good or not. Blanket of Night isn't a land; & is odd casted as well. Thoughts?

For the Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool combo, can you think of any alts for the latter? Just wondering...

Since I'll be running Leyline of the Void & Tormod's Crypt again, should I replace Ashen Rider w/ Angel of Despair again?

Is this combo too much?: Leonin Arbiter + Maralen of the Mornsong + Necropotence + Children of Korlis ? How do you think it works; & is it effective? Should I just keep the latter 2 instead if not?

Anyways, that's all I have for now; though I still have some things to finish up at this time. I'll see you all later.

@SynergyBuild: Well, after finding out there WILL be 36 Walkers in (WAR), There Will Be Blood. (The Movie Name... :P)

Anyways, I'm still asking about what to do about a certain Doomsday combo to use w/ your suggested Predict . I'm obviously focusing on Decking Out, & Winning w/ Laboratory Maniac . I'm also using Pact of Negation as protection. That's 3/5 pieces for the Domsday Device. What would you reccomend after this? Also NO Lion's Eye Diamond or Yawgmoth's Will , please.

I'm quite surprised enough Tibalt is returning, & Sorin, & Jiang Yanggu + Mowu... & some newbloods that look like badass walkers. To be honest, I want a New, INFINTELY SUPERIOR Tibalt for Superfriends, & I'd LOVE to know how it took SOOOO Long for Sorin Markov to break his stone casing; I mean, he's as strong as Ugin, who's on par w/ Nicol Bolas until recent events (Most Likely...). I, mean... he could just punch a hole in Nahiri's Stone Encasing, & try & follow her from here. Also, still NO Garruk Wildspeaker reappearence? I wonder if he's dead... /endrant

Also, what's better; Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , or Blanket of Night ? I want to use this w/ Shimmer , so... Opinions?

Is there also, any alternatives for Knowledge Pool in the Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir combo, & if so, how good are they as well?

Considering I'm thinking of running Leyline of the Void & Tormod's Crypt , should I bring back Angel of Despair ?

Should I run Leonin Arbiter over Mindlock Orb ? & what about the following for this combo?: Maralen of the Mornsong , Necropotence , & Children of Korlis

Is this too much? I'm already discombobulated by the idea of XXXVI Walkers; & not one, Garruk. He'd be a true hero for killing a, now, Agent of Bolas. Where the crapola is he? He hasn't been seen once since Core Set 2015... X/

BMH: Introspected, & Introverted; The UnExperience

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Alright. I think I know where this deck should go. However, w/ all such garbage in the fray, I actually have more to ask than show as a result. Here we go... Again.

  1. It seems my creatures seem to have an ETB theme in mind; most notably for the use of Eldrazi Displacer . What exactly do you think would be a good alt in a situation where ol' Displacer: Enemy of Eldrazi, & their Ultra Beast from there? How to protect this?

  2. After watching a recent episode of GAME KNIGHTS, one such combo jumped out of the water. Perplexing Chimera & a Bounce Combo ( Eldrazi Displacer again.) to not only get the permanent you traded for, but also getting the Chimera back. Is this legit?

  3. We seem to have a Flicker/ETB theme for the most part. What would you recommend in Yennett's colors ( BTW.) for alts, or even protection?

  4. Word on the Street states Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , & Shimmer works when you state "Swamp", thus Phsasing out all lands for each players turn. If this is incorrect, is there a way to improve on this? I mean, Urborg does Phase back in on the End Step (Is this true...?~), so, what could go wrong, & what to recommend for supplemental? Actually, is Blanket of Night better than Urborg though? I just wanted to be sure as Tomb of Yawgmoth is a land, but I dunno how well it works for Shimmer ...

  5. I dunno why, but I thought of Putting in a Doomsday package in. After being suggested Predict , I have Laboratory Maniac , & Pact of Negation . I also have Gush after changing my mind. But I still have only 4/5 Pieces. I also want to use this whenever I use DOOMSDAY on the same turn I draw it; while ending games with the package. What would be the last card you'd recommend? Besides Lion's Eye Diamond , & Yawgmoth's Will , of course.

  6. If I would put the following combo in: Maralen of the Mornsong + Necropotence + Children of Korlis in, is it really better to put Leonin Arbiter in in place of Mindlock Orb ? It does cost less, & his ability to bypass one's own ineptitude of searching is great. Plus, I've too much anyway. I think I should cut down. What about you?

  7. With the opinion that Mnemonic Wall will be added, how should I abuse the following effects?: Silence , & Darkness (The latter only fits as my life, Vorthos-wise, is currently in quite a state...)? What? I wanted to use a Fog effect, but there were too many in … 3X

  8. Since this deck is meant for the largest amount of hate possible, how does Leyline of the Void & Tormod's Crypt seem here?

And... That's all my questions worth asking. I'd really like an opinion on all these. That said, I wonder about what to do after this...

...Though 5 Color Gates.dec might seem like a great idea... Thoughts?

thom-le I will go take a look at your deck and let you know how the button works.

I'm so glad to hear that you have tested my deck out. I think it runs very well and I appreciate the suggestions to enhance some of the cards already in the deck. I think AEtherize and Flood of Recollection are great cards and I have thought about adding them in the past. I'm to that point where it is hard to cut cards. But I will say that the one card I was thinking about cutting was Land Equilibrium. Not that it doesn't help but its tough to spend turn 4 casting that card. It really does "get" the ramp decks which is great but it can also be a card that just does nothing.

Settle the Wreckage is also great, but I hate ramping my opponents. Having Land Equilibrium out would be necessary for me to want to cast that. I think there is enough bounce in the deck that it isn't necessary but that might just be my meta. It is still a great card and would make sense to play over other cards if you own it.

Balance effects draws so much hate in my area that I stay away from those cards but they do work with this deck seeing as how you are usually not ramping at all.

I also love the idea of Shimmer but I'm trying to keep my instant and sorcery count high so I tend to avoid enchantments. See... Metallurgic Summonings .

You're welcome. At the moment I'm also trying to work on this button, would you be so kind and check, if my upvote-button in the description section of my Saheeli's Ironworks (KCI) does work?

But I'm not only here for your coding, I've also tested your deck. I think it does work well in a multiplayer-game. You're never the main threat on the board (for your opponents) until you get in the position of dealing high damage. I'd recommend Settle the Wreckage , it works well with your Land Equilibrium , maybe Magus of the Balance or an early Restore Balance . Shimmer would definitely create some hate against you, but could be useful. Standstill is very effective for control decks, because in normal case you'll get some card draw for cheap and also hinder some opponents in their board development. In the Maybeboard put something in against Graveyard-decks like Remorseful Cleric , but this depends on your play group.

For another instants or sorceries maybe consider AEtherize against attacking creatures. Flood of Recollection gets you any spell back to your hand.

Though, actually, turning Power Matters tribal into Riot Control tribal might not be that bad - snare opponent and beat to death. Possible additions:

Kogarashi on Copy target effects?

Also, because Clever Impersonator enters the battlefield as a copy, if you copy Shimmer with it, it will enter the battlefield as a Shimmer, and you will get to choose a land type. So if the first Shimmer gave Islands phasing, the Clever Impersonator copy can also give, say, Swamps phasing.

Rhadamanthus on Copy target effects?

1 year ago

Yes, it's on the battlefield. Enchantments are one of the "permanent" type cards (artifacts, creatures, enchantments, lands, and planeswalkers), and permanents go to the battlefield after you cast them. In your example, both the original Shimmer and the Clever Impersonator copying it are on the battlefield.

Were you asking a different question?
