Take Possession Discussion

Caerwyn on Mairsil, The Pretender

5 months ago

There are a couple cards that completely stop opponents from using creature-based activated abilities: Cursed Totem , Damping Matrix , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , and Voidstone Gargoyle

Phyrexian Revoker and Sorcerous Spyglass allow you to stop Mairsil without targeting it, so it bypasses flicker mechanics.

Suppression Field taxes the activated abilities, making them harder to use.

Trickbind is another counter that has the added benefit of Split Second, and could be worth including.

You could use removal with split second to kill Mairsil without it being able to flicker in response: Molten Disaster , Sudden Death , Take Possession , Wipe Away .

Sudden Spoiling neuters Mairsil for the turn.

Thanks. For this deck, I went with some more on-theme options. Sphinx of the Final Word can't be countered and makes all the instants and sorceries uncounterable; Nezahal, Primal Tide and Take Possession can't be countered either; Metallurgic Summonings gives you value even if your spells are countered; and the recursion gets your creatures back.

Haha thanks for the suggestions! I've opted to replace Control Magic effects with removal for now as reanimating the corpses with my commander achieves pretty much the same thing :p I'm considering Take Possession, Volition Reins or Dragonlord Silumgar to steal PWs though!

Expropriate is definitely worth a slot, I just don't use it cause it's not very exciting for me. Same reason I don't run Consecrated Sphinx.

Don't get the pattern? Maybe I can help you. They are cards w/ Split/Second. This means I can't cast anything to counter this, & would have to require a Mana Ability to counter it. What cards w/ Mana Abilities in all possible colors can counter these cards? We have Creatures that can't be Out-Flashed, Instants that can't be countered, & other nasty effects.

Any suggestions that can help? I'm thinking of replacing Mizzium Meddler for something that can counter this. Anything could help in this case. Thanks in advance. :)

kbrauner3005 on Lazav, the Multifarious, Control and Shenanigans

1 year ago

Before actually playing the deck I was very focused on setting up a nice graveyard for Lazav using a bunch of wheel effects and looters. I also had a lot of evasive creatures included to ensure that Lazav would connect.

After playing the deck I think it works a lot better to just play the cards out without focusing to much about the setup for Lazav. As a result I cut down to just 2 wheel effects (I think) and no looters unless they are evasive creatures. I only run evasive creatures that I would not mind playing without thinking about Lazav (I still think Invisible Stalker is to good to not be included though).

The creatures that can protect Lazav are so much better then I ever thought they would be. It comes up every single game (multiple times) and it can really be a blow out when you are left with your (sometimes lethal) commander after people put in an effort to remove it, did some collateral damage and payed a price themselves. Cavern Harpy dodges everything (besides Take Possession which I have never seen played) but have the drawback of resulting in Lazav gaining summoning sickness when I replay him. I had a game where I played Lazav, someone tried to remove him (sometimes by killing the board) I would turn Lazav into Cavern Harpy to dodge. Then replay Lazav, new removal, harpy again, repeat for like 4-5 turns. Summoning sickness is a real draw back from Cavern Harpy but is non the less a really strong protection piece. Erebos, God of the Dead (and Thassa, God of the Sea when I manage to get one) can dodge a lot of removal without the issue of summoning sickness.

I've also found that this deck can do some really fast kills fairly easy when a little lucky. Simply playing Lazav on turn 2, Buried Alive on turn 3 to get Vector Asp, Phyrexian Dreadnought (and maybe Dimir Infiltrator) sets up for a kill on turn 4 on players who simply cannot block, and turn 5 with any evasion creature in the mix.

In a very very lucky scenario imagine this. Turn 1: Sol Ring, Dimir Signet Turn 2: Lazav AND Buried Alive Turn 3: Kill with and evasive lazav as a Phyrexian Dreadnought with infect.

But in most games where we simply dont draw Buried Alive, just playing the deck more like a control deck is really fun and work well.

Enral on ☀ Tuvasa Enchantress | Approach the Second Sun ☀

mikazukyuun: It really depends on the direction you wanna take Tuvasa (combo, enchantment goodstuff, or aura voltron?). I don't think they are bad additions but maybe Altered Ego could be Clever Impersonator unless you want more clones? Regarding the more expensive cards, Replenish can be substituted with Open the Vaults. Treachery can be replaced with Corrupted Conscience/Take Possession.

Grafdigger's Cage, Torpor Orb and Humility. These you could perhaps run.

What about Control Magic, Take Possession, Confiscate, and Corrupted Conscience? That his commander or the problem and make it his problem.

What about chaos. Scrambleverse, and Thieves' Auction

Neotrup on Imprinting and split second: questions

1 year ago

The abilities that start with "whenever" are triggered abilities, you can tell because they start with the word "whenever." They are also mana abilities which means they don't use the stack, and will function any time you have permission to activate a mana ability. They do also have static abilities that function as replacement effects modifying how they enter the battlefield, and Caged Sun has a static ability to boost power and toughness, while Utopia Sprawl has the keyword static ability Enchant. An example of a similar mana increasing effect that is not a triggered ability (or mana ability) would be Mana Reflection, note that it uses "if" to indicate a replacement effect rather than a trigger condition.

Split Second is a static ability that functions while a spell is on the stack. If a spell has Split Second no player can cast spells or activate non mana abilites. It does not counter anything. Trickbind is a spell that can counter target activated or triggered ability AND also has split second. Take Possession is an Aura that gives you control of a permanent AND has split second, it cannot counter anything.
