Fractured identity combo time

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on Jan. 18, 2019, 2:19 p.m. by griffstick

So over time since the release of Fractured Identity I keep thinking of reasons that this card might be underrated. Definatly under used. And it's simply broken lol. Let me explain. I've thought of a few cards that go great with it. Cards that create a great situation for you or just out right win. So heres what I got so far, here we go.

So far thats what I got. With enough ideas i can make a deck out of this idea. Obviously phage the Untouchable is the best one. My question to you guys is, what did I miss?

I can't think of to many more, but it's a fun idea. Who would be your commander?

I got some. They all require a lot of mana on a critical turn.

- Leveler : drop this, hit it with Fractured Identity , pass turn.

- Eater of Days : you net 4 extra turns in a pod of 4

- Wormfang Manta : you net 3 extra turns in a pod of 4. More risky if opponents have sac outlets.

I could see it being cast on a Sphere of Resistance but it's really clunky.

I'm not so sure about the Overwhelming Splendor . It works if every player targets someone different but if you played it and then you fracture it. Well the fractured copies are just going to point right back at you more often than not...

Otherwise I do like what I'm seeing.

Abyssal Persecutor could work.

Honestly I'm also wondering about this. Do you own the tokens? Cause then it'd fit right in Zedruu the Greathearted .

dbpunk the opponents own the tokens they create, unfortunately.

Immortal Coil & Forbidden Crypt if you add some GY hate to go with it. Sky Swallower for Shiggles if you can Stifle it yourself.

Wow that's some good stuff.

@Suns_Champion, thats some brilliant thinking. I think that's janky as hell too but I love it. Fucking sweet.

@Mj3913, that's exactly the kind of stuff I was looking for. Thank you.

I don't think Leveler works like that. Everyone would just skip 2 turns. Lol. Maybe if I had a Torpor Orb out. I like the Eater of Days though.

Plus I just thought of Inverter of Truth because of the Eater of Days suggestion.

@DrukenReaps, can you explain why it doesn't work? I enchant myself with the Overwhelming Splendor and hit it with Fractured Identity

griffstick I think you mixed up Leveler and Eater of days.

But yeah you're right about Eater of Days, No idea why I thought that lol

Inverter of Truth is a good one with graveyard hate for sure.

rob_shifflett: Well, you have to play both of them first and they affect opponents, so everyone would find and infinite combo and Ulamogg.

According to Fractured Identity Exile target nonland permanent. Each player OTHER THAN ITS CONTROLLER creates a token that's a copy of it.

I believe YOUR OWN (can't stress that enough) Overwhelming Splendor would place the splendor copies on opponents rather than yourself.

Say the player you originally targeted splendor with is about to die taking it with them. Spread the love...

You don't even need to enchant yourself!

My mistake. I did not realize everyone played infinite combos and an Ulamog, in every deck.
