That Which Was Taken Discussion

  • I have a couple of those included or on a very close side board/chopping block/shoe-in position.

  • I actually have Tainted Isle in the deck, just not added here I believe (but I will look into that)... On that same note River of Tears should be an auto-include. Phenax is cool... But I don't picture running enough creatureish toughness to care for him that much (I'll see how test plays go though). Mind Funeral is nifty... Although I like taking a shot at all targets at once... Though I have seen how effective: "mill until x lands are revealed", can be. Keening Stone could be a strong alternative finisher, and I do own one so it will probably make an appearance again. I like Notion Thief alot and along the same vein I also really like Sygg, River Cutthroat although I can see the potential for massive backfire with both :) I HATE cyclonic rift even though it destroys people, I will think of it since I can use it then one of my low-cost selective discard spells to discard something nifty.

  • That Which Was Taken is nice for indestructible + hexproof or just protecting my other paper-thin stuff... but may be too slow in comparison to a more wincon-style card at similar speed - al'a: Keening Stone. I like some of those other cut cards too darn much though.

They do, but they dont continue to be indestructible. That characteristic is granted to the permanent byThat Which Was Taken.

MindAblaze oh okay, thanks. If That Which Was Taken is removed from the battlefield do my Divinity counters remains on my permanents? (sorry I'm fairly new to MTG rules)

Padeem doesnt have any ability that helps you when Obliterate is on the stack. Obliterate doesnt target, and Padeem protects your artifacts from being targeted (hexproof.) Your better bet would be to protect Crucible of Worlds with That Which Was Taken.

darkmatter32x Neotrup thanks for clarification. But, if I have Padeem, Consul of Innovation will my artifacts be affected while and after Obliterate resolves? What if I use That Which Was Taken ability to make Padeem, Consul of Innovation indestructible, will I still need to destroy everything when Obliterate resolves?

Back during Kamigawa/Ravnica standard, I remember reading somewhere that it was the Kami war that caused the spirits of Ravnica to wake.

I don't remember where I read that. I want to say it was in the Ravnica players' guide that came in the fat pack, but it could have been flavor text of a card, or the description on the back of a preconstructed deck, or even it might've been on Wizards website. It's been so long I can't remember.

If we can confirm the source, we could actually add the Kami to the list as "low threat", since that implies they exist across planes, but aren't interested in war, except for That Which Was Taken.

PartyJ thanks for the answer!

I don't want to go super-competitive, but there are my wishes:- competitive enough to play against basic commander 2017 and maybe a tier higher- fun to play and play against

Currently i have a great combo with Lifespinner goes on Myojin of Life's Web, then Iname, Life Aspect to place both hand and grave back onto the field (maybe multiple time thanks to That Which Was Taken).

It's nice to have 100+ life while everyone struggling in 40-ties.

I'd like to retain the thematism but improve the effectiveness. Budget is not really an issue.
