Ward of Bones Discussion

Ethan2003 on Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose. in testing for cEDH

Apotheosis616. Noted that I need mana rocks. I figured I could use a staxs approach to slow the game long enough to ether tutor my combo or used my mana doublers and ‘X’ spells. Though black has a hards time with that, artifact staxs cards could be used. Would cards like Uba Mask Ward of Bones Trinisphere Damping Engine work?

With the IP ban, are you going to slot in Ward of Bones or something like Nether Void? IP was just such a unique stax piece in this deck and the effect is difficult to replace.

Syphon Mind and Midnight Clock are far better in multiplayer but not particularly "abusive". Ward of Bones and Land Equilibrium can be crazy harsh in a big game vs a small one and they tend to feel a bit more "abusive". Edric, Spymaster of Trest also really shoots up in power level with multiple opponents. Unwinding Clock is basically a colorless Seedborn Muse, its super busted. Disrupt Decorum is a hell of a party that doesn't even work in 1v1. A known Constant Mists can do wonders in hand, as nobody will want to waste an attack on you. Arachnogenesis and Comeuppance are similar, if they are suspected responses to attacks you may start being left alone in the game until someone has a counterspell for you. Dragon Broodmother, and a few other cards trigger token making on each player's turn, maybe not super abusive but still much better in multi than in a 1v1 game. Mind's Eye can be quite strong as well, especially with Smothering Tithe!!

Thanks for the compliment and the advice! Clue is such an incredible movie. Love it so much and glad you do as well!

I actually agree with all of it. I have Bludgeon Brawl Fire Diamond and Impact Tremors somewhere and will put those in. I'm pretty sure I have more mana rocks laying around as well so I will out those in when I find them. I badly need better equipment. This is just all I had around the house.

What do you think of Ward of Bones staying in the deck?

If you give everything away Ward of Bones means you are the only one capable of actually playing cards.

Maybe Switcheroo or Cultural Exchange (which does not target creatures, it targets players and you don't even have to trade your own if you want chaos).

Rite of the Raging Storm

Reins of Power and Illusionist's Gambit might not be directly "giving" somebody something but maybe after all those gift they owe you something... I especially like trading creatures with Player A and then using them to attack Player B.

A weird alternative to Pledge of Loyalty is Earnest Fellowship. It completely screws with decks that use buff on their own creatures with enchantments, creature abilities and instants.

Thanks for commenting!

Will definitely look to add in Spirit of Resistance wasn't aware of it until now. Same with Vow of Flight and I'll take out the green vow to throw it in.

Ward of Bones would be great for this deck, since it won't be artifact heavy and my meta tends to be the opposite, hence why I threw in Energy Flux to anger them.

Of the Karona buffs, I'll probably throw in the Civic Saber since I can play it before Karona hits the field.

On big thing is being able to block Karona as well as general pillowfort.
Stuffy Doll is perfect. Anything cheap with indestructable or things like Fog Bank or Guard Gomazoa

I also throw in Circle of Protection: Black and Circle of Protection: Red but lately been thinking about trading red for green because of my meta.

Mystic Barrier means only one opponent can attack you if multi-player. Spirit of Resistance means you don't care if they attack you or not. Vow of Flight is evasion and they can't attack you (thats the only Vow i use).

Might of the Nephilim and Blessing of the Nephilim, Civic Saber

Ward of Bones and Brand of Ill Omen stop opponents from casting creatures once Karona starts popping around
