Show and Tell Discussion

Boza on Let's Discuss: Why is Emrakul ...

Emrakul is never really cast for her full mana cost in Modern or Legacy - it is cheated out. Through the Breach, Show and Tell into Omniscience... even then, it does not win the game on its own.

If you're gonna be playing Omniscience, play Show and Tell. It'll make your life easier. Also, I'd recommend adding just a teensy bit more control, like maybe Force of Will and Negate or Arcane Denial.

Hey I_C_, haven't been on in awhile sorry!

I plan to create a full deck breakdown (again) soon, because I changed it from being more combo to more Vorthos. Originally it had Doomsday and Laboratory Maniac and other things of that nature.

It still has things that are more synergistic than combo like Show and Tell into Omniscience or Waste Not with wheel effects, Dark Deal being a favorite. Otherwise you didn't miss anything really combo-wise.

I have a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck that consistently pops out big old Eldrazi - feel like she's a better commander to ramp out Eldrazis based on sacrificing stuff...

Your mileage may vary, and this deck looks tight - I've just had a TON of luck w/ Meren as a sort of Show and Tell style deck w/ sacrifice components

Madcookie on Question regarding ETB effects

1 month ago

Yes, but in my example there are no other ETBs and I didn't specify whos turn it is because it doesn't really matter with just one trigger. I just mentioned the APNAP order to be thorough. Also just to clear any remaining misunderstandings. We assume its your turn. You cast Show and Tell. Both you and your opponent put Ravenous Chupacabra from your hand. Both chupas enter at the same time, targeting each other. Their triggers are placed in APNAP order which means since it is your turn your Ravenous Chupacabra will die first due to your opponents chupa targeting it, then your trigger will resolve killing your opponents chupacabra.

In any case the main question was can Ravenous Chupacabra "see" the opponents creature when they enter at the same time to target it? Yes.

Madcookie on Question regarding ETB effects

1 month ago

Yes, since by the creatures entered at the same time. Order is this.

  1. Say Show and Tell resolves with both of you and your opponent selecting a card.
  2. Opponent puts his card and you yours at the same time say Rampaging Baloths and your Ravenous Chupacabra. This means both creatures are on the battlefield when their (if any) ETB triggers activate, which in turn allows you to target their creature with the chupa.
  3. ETB Triggers are resolved in APNAP order (active player-non-active player). Since in this example there are no other ETB except the chupas you target the opponent's baloths and if no other actions are taken you destroy it.

Arcaticas on fate and shifting

  1. Trophy Mage with this current deck list can only pull Commander's Sphere
  2. Land base needs some serious work. Bounce lands are bad. Watch this.
  3. Show and Tell is almost never going to pay off since the only cards you really want to use it for are Omniscience or Avacyn, Angel of Hope
  4. Drop the Teferi, Timebender
  5. Intruder Alarm might be something you can do crazy things with Prodigal Sorcerer
  6. Rhystic Study and Solemn Simulacrum are auto includes.

Also for Scion of the Ur-Dragon you have access to stupid win conditions like Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon plus the dragon with fire breathing for to instantly kill an opponent.

For just free-casting, I would recommend either going full graveyard for the best reanimation spells like Dread Return, or a ton of ramp with a few free-cast cards, namely Omniscience and Show and Tell. Those two cards can just win you the game if you have them in your hand together along with protection. Other free-casters include Elvish Piper, Dragonstorm, and Tooth and Nail.

For stupid tribal fun, you could run Conspiracy and Arcane Adaptation to make all cards dragons to tutor with Scion of the Ur-Dragon.
