Tawnos's Coffin

Tawnos's Coffin


You may choose not to untap Tawnos's Coffin during your untap step.

(3), Tap: Remove target creature and all Auras attached to it from the game. Note the number and kind of counters that were on that creature. When Tawnos's Coffin leaves the battlefield or becomes untapped, return the removed card to play under its owner's control tapped with the noted number and kind of counters on it, and if you do, return the removed Aura cards to play under their owner's control attached to that permanent.

Tawnos's Coffin Discussion

Don't just blatantly lie to the table. "I won't attack you next turn. [attacks next turn] What? It was an opportunity to kill you, so I took it."

I understand if you wanna proxy a Tawnos's Coffin or something, because you want the deck ready to play before you can afford some integral piece, but stop proxying absurd cards that would be in every deck if they weren't multiple Benjamins. There's nothing clever about incorporating ABU Duals and Mana Crypt into every manabase. Again, if you need a second Sacred Foundry to enable some weird combo, cool, but "so I have perfect mana with my Farseek, Nature's Lore, and proxied Three Visits" is not cool.

Be welcoming of letting others into your playgroup. I move a lot, and it's a hell of a lot easier when someone comes in and you actually make an effort to let them know when a new game is starting, or chat them up while they get a read on what kind of decks and playstyles are going on around them.

Fleet Swallower is great, it mills half their library in one swing and it only has to attack, so you can pull it back with something like Maze of Ith so you just get the attack trigger. You don't play white, so you don't get access to Reconnaissance, but Maze of Ith is a good colorless alternative. Hedron Crab like wideline1414 said is great too. If you play vs decks that have any eldrazi titans in their decks, you will never win unless you can exile the titan, so cards that exile creatures are good too. Scour from Existence is an option here, but at 7 mana its equite expensive. Tawnos's Coffin is slightly cheaper, but they can just remove it to get their creature back, so your only real option is Scour from Existence and I would add it to the deck if you play vs anyone that plays ulamog or kozilek and that sort of thing in your play group, because as soon as ulamog hits the graveyard, their graveyard gets reshuffled into their library = you can never win.

Here's my version of the deck, thanks for the inspiration, Enral!:

Golos, Maze Pilgrim

Combos/notes on my take:

  • One thing I didn't realize initially was that that Golos' ability still observes timing rules, so you don't want to activate him on an off turn, as you can't play the lands.

There are some notable differences between our decks, the biggest of which is I don't run Ghostly Flicker - I'm looking for more repeatable flickering via Conjurer's Closet , Tawnos's Coffin and Soulherder - I had considered putting a Gilded Drake to take people stuff and then get back with flickering, but that takes away from the primary purpose of the deck as a Maze's End build.

Again, thanks for making the primer, and hopefully I can offer some ideas back to you or others on their builds.

The aura will become unattached and go to the graveyard. When an object changes zones, the game treats it as a totally new object with no relation to what it was before (except for a few exceptions needed to make things work properly; they don't apply in this situation). In this situation, as far as the game is concerned, the creature that the aura used to be attached to is gone.

An aura will only be flickered along with the object it's attached to if the flickering effect specifically says to do that ( Flickerform , Tawnos's Coffin , Oubliette ). Otherwise it stays on the battlefield.

PhotogenicParasympathetic on Tawnos's Coffin + transform

Hey all,

I'm wondering, since Tawnos's Coffin tracks counters on a permanent, does it also track the transformed status of the permanent? For example, if I have a Cunning Bandit that has transformed, and has two ki counters on it, and I exile it with the coffin then untap the coffin, does it return as a Bandit with two counters, or as Azamuki with two counters?

Thanks much!

Cool mechanics, always nice to see decks outside of the beaten path.

Good comments above, I see you applied many. I support the idea that Buried Alive fits in here.

My main concern is that you are shoving cards in your graveyard, but your commander is expansive to cast and you will not get that many activation from it. You have to find a way to serial flicker or reanimate it to get this machine rolling. The only card I can think of that would work with these colors is Tawnos's Coffin. Alternatively, you can add cards like Living Death, Twilight's Call and Cauldron Dance to maximise your returns.

If you can afford it, replace Hellkite Charger with Scourge of the Throne.

Hope this is helpful!

Hi Mr9Loganja

In fact Tawnos's Coffin is not very budget friendly. Otherwise, Cold Storage seems like a "one-time effect" version of it, which is almost a hundred times cheaper! hahaha It's actually a pretty cool option, to be fair, with enough tokens, you might not need it more than once!

Thanks for the suggestion! :D

I can agree with your opinion about Saheeli's Directive. saw a suggestion for Tawnos's Coffin, a more budget option could be Cold Storage. food for thought lol
