Show and Tell Discussion

RamaLama on Quick...Kill The Hippo!!

Thanks for the comments and suggestions guys.

I like the Show and Tell and Concordant Crossroads ideas DrkNinja, although giving all creatures haste is a little worrying I must say. I'll have to test it out. Luckily (due to its price) I feel the same way about Eureka as I do Hypergenesis or the Tempting Wurm that NyanNijet suggested . They all push the game forward too fast, even for this deck and, considering all the card draw I'm giving out, if one player has an Reliquary Tower effect and the others don't, things could get ugly.

I've thought about including Hunted Wumpus in the deck, NyanNijet, but when you get up into the 6/6 creature range, people start taking notice. I even considered not putting the 5/5 Sheltering Ancient in the deck for this reason, but the cumulative upkeep is just so sweet on that card I had to include it.

Show and Tell? Concordant Crossroads? Eureka? Since this deck is a fun deck I proxy it and just have all the fun.

Flash and Show

Commander / EDH* Gennten


This is a year old and I devote the most effort on this than any of my other decks. It's a strong control shell filled with various strategies. Some of the inclusions are adjustments to various metas I play (For instance, Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast vs. blue-focused metas). I hope this deck could get some good suggestions, but it's fine if any reader is stumped. Sorry if I'm too lazy to write a description. Happy reading.

1) Flash + Protean Hulk -> Nomads en-Kor + Cephalid Illusionist Laboratory Maniac

2) Show and Tell / Flash + Academy Rector -> Omniscience, try to win.

3) Eternal Scourge + Food Chain -> General Tazri + Halimar Excavator/Kalastria Healer

Others: Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace/Laboratory Maniac + Tainted Pact

sylvannos on Legacy Playables in Commander 2017

I'm actually liking some of the new cards in the upcoming Commander release. I figured we could use a thread to discuss what cards are playable in the new set and people's thoughts on them from a non-EDH perspective.

Some of my thoughts so far:

Teferi's Protection

This seems solid in Ad Nauseam, but I'm not experienced with the deck to know whether this is better than any of the other Angel's Grace cards. The nice thing is you can respond to a Doomsday or Ad Nauseam as usual, but you're not stuck at 1 life. You can also use it defensively to phase out your permanents to protect yourself from Wasteland.

You can also use the protection on yourself so you can dodge cards like Hymn to Tourach.

Curse of Opulence

I might play around with this in Goblins. Getting Lotus Petals each turn seems strong in conjunction with Aether Vial. Might also try some kind of weird R/x Prison deck with Mishra's Factory beatdowns.

Mirror of the Forebearers

The mana costs on this are lower than Mirage Mirror. An activation cost of seems solid when you want to create multiple Goblin Piledrivers, hatebears, or Priest of Titania. The downside is that it can only be used on tribal cards and you need to have a creature in play worth copying.

Alms Collector

"That's a nice Brainstorm you have there. It would sure be a shame if you were to get Notion Thief'd by Death and Taxes..."

Hungry Lynx

Not sure if this will find a home in any Legacy decks, moreso that it's kind of a cute beatstick. I was thinking Maverick may have a slot for it, since there's some synergy with Qasali Pridemage. You could also make some weird Illness in the Ranks deck. Hunted Troll , Hunted Phantasm , and Forbidden Orchid would be the other cards, but this doesn't seem like a viable strategy in Legacy to me.

Oddly, it might be better in a BUG Fish shell in Vintage. Combined with Null Rods, Trygon Predator, etc., you get mainboard hate against Oath of Druids and Monastery Mentor.

Stalking Leonin

Another piece of removal for Hatebear strategies. I like this guy, especially since it gets rid of the creature permanently and you don't have to do weird Flickerwisp + Fiend Hunter things. The only downside is you can't deal with a creature before it attacks, specifically Emrakul, the Aeons Torn in the Show and Tell matchup. Still, I'm 99% positive this guy finds itself taking over slots in D&T.

Any other cards people are thinking about playing in their Eternal non-EDH decks? As far as I know, the full card spoiler hasn't been released anywhere, so there will likely be other new playables or staples coming out. I don't think we're going to see anything on the level as True-Name Nemesis, but some of these come close.

Does Show and Tell and/or Eureka ever backfire? Also, wouldn't some protection in the form of bouncing permanents (Vapor Snag) or creature destruction (Path to Exile) be worthwhile being that you're going to be giving your opponent something? Maybe even hand manipulation to take out whatever could be detrimental.

playtested and it was great. T2 Omniscience into a T3 Enter the Infinite into obviously emrakul's for the win. Oh i also had 2 Force of Wills backing up that T2 Show and Tell.

Second game wasn't as good...T3 Emrakul from show and tell.

abby315 on Help me update my Reanimator ...

4 weeks ago

I'm no legacy expert, but I just started playing Reanimator after top ban and I'll do my best to answer your questions!

  1. Blue looks like the best splash right now because Show and Tell effects are so strong in the sideboard and current meta. Second most popular looks to be green (and that's what I run). Wear / Tear just isn't needed as much, plus Reverent Silence is faster and Abrupt Decay more versatile currently.

  2. Sire is mostly out of favor in the MB. I see a lot of lists swapping it for the Iona in the SB; I'm testing Elesh Norn. I think this reasoning is two-fold: the Sultai/4c Delver and midrange lists are fast and have good topdecks, while being able to pressure down a 6/4; and the best control deck is PROBABLY D&T, which folds to Iona faster than a Sire. Without the soft-lock Miracles could put in place, Griselbrand is more likely to win you control matchups anyway, assuming you can chain into another Reanimate like Chancellor. Elves and Burn are also more prevalent post-Miracles, making Iona or Elesh Norn more effective. In short, there are more creature-based decks running around that can win around a Griselbrand or put you too low too fast to draw cards.

  3. As far as I can tell, Chancellor is still a 4-of. If you saw a list without her, it's probably the grindy U/B version, but even then I'd be surprised. Any list that wants to go fast still values her highly. The prevalence of Daze and FoW in fast tempo lists like Delver makes her even better, IMO.

  4. Looks about right to me, unless you decide to go the other color splashes and take out Wear/Tear. Some people are testing Archetype of Endurance in the side vs. Swords to Plowshares lists, but no idea if it's correct.

EDIT: Oh, Grave Titan is much better now because GY hate is everywhere. Being able to hardcast him with Rituals is sometimes a necessary gameplan, plus he's good against Karakas, Swords to Plowshares, etc.

Here's my list: NEED 4 T1 GRISELBRAND
