hungry000 on Painting Iona's Gifts - Esper Gifts

This deck would be much cooler if you played some color hate cards like Celestial Purge, Kor Firewalker, Burrenton Forge-Tender, Story Circle, Flashfreeze, etc in the sideboard; that way, if you have a Painter's Servant but don't yet have an Iona out you can name red and gain life or kill any permanent with Celestial Purge.

Perplex seems unnecessary. It doesn't look for any combo pieces, and it's more cost-efficient to play cantrips and other normal card draw spells. Alternatively you could play Muddle the Mixture, which serves as combo protection and a way to get a combo piece. I also don't think the 3 mana counterspells are good enough. Mana Leak and more Remand are better there.

I would add more ramp (Marble Diamond, Pearl Medallion, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, etc.) in place of some plains (I like to have 36-38 lands in my control decks, as I feel that <39 is too much) to get your commander out faster to counter aggro decks. Also consider Serra Ascendant, Serra Avatar, and Luminarch Ascension for some nice attackers, and Blazing Archon, Ajani Steadfast, Story Circle, and Platinum Angel for pillowfort.

DemonDragonJ on Shroud of Benevolence/Malevolence

11 months ago

Story Circle is a wonderful card, but it has not been reprinted in many years, nor have any cards similar to it been printed, recently, so I wish to pay a homage to it with my own creations, as seen, below:

Shroud of Benevolence Show

This card adds the effect of Awe Strike and/or Hallow to story circle, and, as such, is more expensive to both cast and activate.

Shroud of Malevolence Show

This card is more aggressive than the other, being very similar to, yet very different from, it at the same time.

What does everyone think of these cards?

DemonDragonJ on Could Black Have "Flickering" Effects?

xhuggels, I presume that that that means that there is no way that black could have its own version of Story Circle or Righteous Aura?

DemonDragonJ on Guilds of Ravnica: Spoilers and ...

landofMordor, but "(cardname) deals X damage to you" occupies more space on a card than does "you lose X life," so, surely, WotC would want to preserve card space?

Also, the flavor difference is important, as well, as it is the difference between being stabbed in the abdomen with a sword versus bleeding from the wound afterward.

Then, there is the mechanical difference: damage can be altered by Story Circle or Furnace of Rath, while life loss cannot be; I also highly doubt that very many players could find that to be a difficult thing to understand, so this seems to be a change that is being made simply for the sake of making a change.

I was excited to put Assassin's Trophy in my decks to replace Putrefy, but its current pre-order price is $22, and I doubt that it will decrease by a significant amount, so I doubt that I shall be purchasing any copies of it at any point in the near future.

The new Vraska is nice, but I have two complaints about her final ability: first, it is too powerful for only 9 loyalty, as other planeswalkers have abilities that cost greater amounts of loyalty but are not as powerful; second, this is now the second time that Vraska has taken that ability from Phage the Untouchable, making it that much less unique; I really wish that WotC had kept that ability unique to Phage, because this is blatant evidence of both how ridiculously powerful planeswalkers are and how much WotC is emphasizing them.

FadingReality on Oloro the Perfect Asshole

Alhammarret's Archive is a great choice, as kamelyan said. Also, Commander doesn't really have a sideboard. That said, looking at your's I'd drop all your circle of protections (resulting in +4 sideboard card space!!!) and adding Story Circle. For one extra mana you gain all the circle of protections in one. Cool deck. I too am a fan of Oloro.

Righteous Aura Story Circle. Why block when you can negate damage? Lol
