Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Discussion

Riv329 on When using Kaalia of the ...

If Kaalia of the Vast is out can and she attacks can I play Ugin, the Spirit Dragon with her ability or is Ugin just considered a planeswalker card.

TheRedGoat on You shall be punished for your sins.

4 days ago

Okay, I like how you've expanded on greed to be about mainly opponents who try to overuse their cards. And focusing the "envy hate" cards to be just flat out stopping the envious player that wants to be destructive is cool. But I'm afraid you've now got the problem of too many hate cards versus any kind of synergy with your commander of choice (Marchesa).

I'm glad you mentioned that I helped you fine tune how to punish each sin, but I think now you'll need to remove some of the cards you're using to make space for other synergies in the deck that may end up having you commit the very sins you're trying to punish. Which technically you already are with your current build, but anyway.

If you want to stick with Marchesa, the Black Rose, then you'll need space for more +1/+1 counter synergies. Keeping it simple for now I think Unspeakable Symbol can do a good chunk of the work, but I'm at a loss as of yet where you could cut for it. And that is assuming you are keeping Marchesa as the commander and would need such synergies.

I will say that I feel Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is better left out and you put the Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker you already have in his place. In my eyes any of his effects are exactly meant to look the most powerful player in the eye, and only them, and say "you're dead". The prideful player more than the envious or gluttonous one is most deserving of that ultimate. They are the one you reduce to nothing and make humble as an example to others.

I can also suggest that instead of maybe the Hissing Miasma card at least you could run Blood Artist or even Falkenrath Noble as a sort of punishment towards players who become the destructive type of wrath (which coincides with envy) and you can then punish that player for each creature they just killed. Arcbond to me can work in a similar way but be considered a pride hate card as well.

I'll have to do some researching/testing for the rest of the deck, but let me know if that works for you so far.

TLDR: you so far have made a "hate bear" deck but without the bear part. Maybe try Crosis, the Purger for commander?

I will use where warranted. I'm not THAT stubborn about it.

For the example, that new Nissa, Steward of Elements card took my fancy, after I played with it at prerelease.

A lot of times I just find a bit OP, which for me means it's not as fun to play. That's the Jenny in me.

Here's a link to the Garruk deck I made around the time of Fate Reforged, when there were heaps of great ramp cards in Standard.

Dirty Emerald

I still rock this around the kitchen table, but not too often as it's very good in multiplayer.

One night my friend was playing Slivers and everyone ganged up on him.

Except me. I was ramping my little heart out.

By the time his deck got taken down I had tutored Garruk, Apex Predator, and played it.

Then I just kept spitting out 3/3 Beasts with deathtouch until my Ugin, the Spirit Dragon hit its ultimate.

My Slivers friend was almost crying with rage that I had been left unchecked.

That's why I don't play that deck much, any more.

I don't think you can really link things properly in chat.

I looked at that list, but it is SO not me.

It was as though someone asked me what all my least favourite cards were, in Standard, and then put them all into one deck!

I built a Ramp deck around the time of M15.

It used Liliana Vess as a tutor and ramped into Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Garruk, Apex Predator.

One night I was able to ultimate all three Planeswalkers in one game. The player sitting next to me was killing himself with laughter. I wasn't a very good player in those days, so it was kind of funny.

To me the joy of Magic isn't really copying other people's ideas, so I'm not really interested in the Pro decks, other than to test against.

Sure I might borrow an idea here or there, but the bones of all my decks come from looking at cards that interest me, and thinking about how I can make a deck with them that will work.

I often build decks around just one card. That's how Angelic High came together.

Stitcher's Graft was spoiled and I came up with an idea thay worked for StuBi.

By the way, he beat Temur Marvel with Angelic High 2-0, the other night.

In one game Marvel brought all four of its Ulamogs on to the field.

Anyway, that's along rant from me. It's late here.

Don't forget that Ugin, the Spirit Dragon was ALSO 8CMC.

People just stuck him in a control shell, which is EXACTLY what you can do with this new Bolas. He's in arguably the best Control colours, right now.

I know people are inclined to always say that the Planeswalkers from the Planeswalker decks are "shitty", but I don't agree that this Bolas is.

+3 is similar to the +2 for Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

-3 Is a better version of the Ob Nixilis Reignited -3

-11 Is so fricken awesome. Deal a massive hit, refill your hand. Yes, please.

LoneCrusader399 on Nicol Bolas

You could probably cut a pain land for Polluted Delta.

How good are Jace, Unraveler of Secrets and Ob Nixilis Reignited? Both seem sub-optimal. I like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and the greatest thief in the multiverse Dack Fayden more. Or maybe replace one of them with that Pull from Tomorrow in your Maybeboard.

I'd look into upgrading your Archaeomancer to a Snapcaster Mage, if you feel like spending that kind of money.

With 10 counterspells, Baral, Chief of Compliance would be a good add.

Wayfarer's Bauble might be better as Thought Vessel or Expedition Map to get Reliquary Tower consistently as you want to keep you hand full.

I'm not a huge fan of Dragonlord Silumgar as an opponent can get the thing you stole back, if the stealing was permanent I'd like it more. Duplicant and Noxious Gearhulk would be good replacements.
