Sword of Fire and Ice Discussion

FancyTuesday on Equipment Interactions with Chromium

5 days ago

In cases where equipment gives creatures abilities like Paradise Mantle then timestamp order determines whether or not Chromium has the ability or not. I.E.: If you activate Chromium's ability then equip him he has the ability, if he's equipped and activates the ability he loses it.

In the case of Sword of Fire and Ice however some of the abilities belong to the equipment, not the creature, and layers keep the P/T buff because Chromium's ability sets base power and toughness. So Chromium would lose the color protections (depending on timestamp) but the Sword's triggers would still function.

Hello! I've been brewing a Chromium, the Mutable Commander deck! I was curious if Chromium, the Mutable would keep abilities of Equipments if you were to use his discard ability? An example of this would be Equiping something such as Sword of Fire and Ice Will Chromium, the Mutable keep said abilities from the sword when he shrinks?

Why thank you, I mean don't get me wrong Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Light and Shadow, etc are the best but they are also like $30-$60 a piece. my budget suggestions are still REALLY good though.

Sword of Fire and Ice Academy Rector and Odric, Lunarch Marshal along with the kor haven. I can go down a plains for the haven. But what would you suggest I remove to make room for other 3 cards?

The deck seems pretty solid. I'll throw out some cards in no particular order that you might want to consider. Odric, Lunarch Marshal can do some disgusting swings especially with your creature base. If you want to build a bit more hate bears you could bring in Sanctum Prelate and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, hell you could even try Angelic Arbiter. A nice card, if it's in your budget, would be Academy Rector to pull True Conviction or your other enchantments. The Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light meld would work well with this deck with your creature base being human/angel heavy and they are just great for their costs. I also like throwing Kozilek, Butcher of Truth into decks like this for late game draw or early pressure if you can ramp hard enough. I'd also throw in Kor Haven, Ancient Tomb, and Homeward Path into the land base. You should also include Sword of Fire and Ice or Sword of War and Peace if you are running an equipment build for that easy color protection.

I also think you should stick with Extraplanar Lens with this deck. It sucks if it gets removed early, but it lets mono-colored decks shine if left unchecked.

iiTzSeb, the only swords that are worth it to me, would be, Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice. I thought about adding those two, but didn’t find it necessary, since I decided I’d be fully committed to the Auratron route, rather than equipment Voltron.

This deck has a grand total of 6 spells that could be called "disruption," that's a really low number no matter how aggressive you're playing. Even more glaring is the fact that the only effect in the deck that can actually draw you cards is a Planeswalker's Ult. This deck has a serious case of tunnel vision, and if it fails to go off or gets disrupted along the way it will run out of gas and utterly stall out. In EDH that's a recipe for a bad time.

First and foremost you need ways to reload your hand.

Cards that are on-theme: Mask of Memory, Sword of Fire and Ice, Garruk's Packleader, Rishkar's Expertise
Cards that are good enough: Sylvan Library, Garruk, Primal Hunter

And honestly I'd keep going. Life's Finale, Disciple of Bolas, Greater Good, Soul's Majesty, anything that keeps you from playing off the top of your deck after turn 5 will be enormously helpful in making the deck stronger and more consistent overall.

Next you need to disrupt your opponents more. Just playing your game your way and letting your opponents do the same is going to spell disaster more times than not in multiplayer. It will also help a lot with your problem in connecting with combat damage.

Putrefy, Maelstrom Pulse, Beast Within, and Chaos Warp all give you a lot of flexibility in dealing with the threat du jour. One sweeper isn't going to cut it either, I'd definitely include Pernicious Deed and Damnation.

Beyond that: Demonic Tutor is a straight upgrade over either Diabolic, and I think Fires of Yavimaya and Rhonas the Indomitable would find a home in this kind of deck.

Good luck! I hope you find some of this useful.

Clyde_Bankston on I will Kresh you.

Omg, Phyrexian Devourer appears to be one of those old un-playtested cards. Thank you for this.

I do like Blasphemous Act a lot because in my meta, there are a lot of token decks so it's easy for Kresh the Bloodbraided to get big, due to so many tokens dying. Then I cast Blasphemous Act and everything but Kresh the Bloodbraided dies. It also works with Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of War and Peace because they prevent Kresh from taking damage from it. I agree with you on the point of Dark Ritual, and the others too. I thought I'd put in Swiftfoot Boots, but I guess not.
