Obelisk Spider is going to trigger once for each creature that -1/-1 counters are placed on and each trigger will have your opponents lose 1 life and you gain 1 life. Strionic Resonator can copy one of these abilities for 1 extra life drain.

Yeah you are underestimating the number of people that look through questions with accepted answers. I know for a fact that like 5 or 6 of the usual suspects on the Q&A look through every single question we have not yet viewed regardless of if it has an accepted answer or not.

As a player that loves combo I am completely on board. I do have a few questions though. How do you propose keeping Bellowing Aegisaur from dying after 5 pumps without needing a second and making the combo much less consistent? Or are we just doing 4 pumps a turn for inevitability?

October 15, 2017 8:23 a.m.

TheVectornaut- Such a strong answer until the end bit where you doubted yourself. Don't worry, if you are wrong people will correct you. No need to doubt yourself and have people asking questions doubt you. You explained it exactly correctly.

Or you could add another ability to the card templated after the archetypes (e.g. Archetype of Aggression).

Permanents your opponents control lose indestructible and can't have or gain indestructible.

All creatures will enter the battlefield at the same time.

Templating looks fine. Playability and design are a discussion for the custom card forum so go ahead over there if you want feedback on that stuff.

Cards are not permanents in any zone besides the battlefield. So neither of those cards will do anything to a Skullbriar in a zone besides the battlefield.

The individual cards of a meld pair are exiled and then return melded. This means that the melded creature will not be affected by anything that was affecting the component cards. So as long as you stack the EoT meld trigger on top of the EoT sac trigger so that meld resolves first you will have and keep Brisela, Voice of Nightmares.

That isn't what I'm saying :P

"Whenever an effect you control...." is the way I am pretty sure it needs to be worded.

Yeah I thought about the fact that "source" is used for the source of abilities after I posted but editing on here is not a thing apparently so I just left it. I do maintain that neither players nor sources ever destroy anything. "Effect" is the result of a spell or ability and it is what would actually be doing the destroying as seen in the reminder text for indestructible.

October 10, 2017 7:05 p.m.

Said on Do sources or ......


I'm pretty sure it is neither. "Source" is used exclusively for damage. I think the correct templating would be "whenever an effect you control would destroy...." This would put it in line with the reminder text for indestructible as demonstrated on Sheltering Light.

Yes, you are correct. When damage that would be dealt to one player, creature, or planeswalker would be dealt to another instead the source of that damage does not change.

Note there are some cards that prevent damage and then deal damage as two different steps. So for instance you Comeuppance and then get hit by Minion of Leshrac the damage is still dealt to the creature because it was prevented and dealt by a white source back instead of redirected.

Pick any five as long as they live up to the title of the list I would be happy for them to be in a Gatewatch movie.

In addition to Solemnity being a static ability Genesis Hydra has a static ability that functions as it enters, not an ETB trigger. Spells, triggered abilities, and activated abilities (with the exception of mana abilities) go on the stack and can be responded to and therefore SBAs will be checked before they resolve and Genesis Hydra would die if it had a trigger. Static abilities are things that are simply true about the game and don't go on the stack. Genesis Hydra enters the battlefield with the counters it doesn't have to go on the stack and resolve, it just happens. Solemnity doesn't allow counters to be placed. Again there is no trigger. If a counter would be placed it just isn't because Solemnity says so.

It is an ability that targets a creature you control, so yes Siren Stormtamer can counter it.

Siren Stormtamer doesn't have flash so no you can't cast (play) it in response to anything.

Mono-black isn't going to be able to race out creatures with enough speed to compete with tron. What you need to do is remove their creatures and slow them down. With the exception of Ulamog this can be done with stuff like Doom Blade or Go for the Throat, but since you included an indestructible creature you need to use exile and so that is why I suggested those exile spells.

I feel like the obvious answer is add red for Crumble to Dust and Sowing Salt but that would probably make tron have no chance.

Along lines that might be better for balance, maybe Sinkhole and replace Archfiend of Depravity with Anowon, the Ruin Sage since tron only wants one thing out anyway. I would also consider cutting Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for some other large colorless creature that is still scary but isn't so oppressive, or you could add in some of the black exile spells like Hour of Glory or Sever the Bloodline.
