Twisted Image Combo

Casual Gidgetimer


was a cheap kitchen table combo deck I played when I was first starting out. $27 of the $44 price tag is 3 Adarkar Wastes that my buddy gave me for it, so it can definitely be built within your budget. I'm not sure if you are interested in this type of glass cannon deck, but it is a blast.

Whatever videos you saw where someone said they were attacking the player and redirecting the damage to the Planeswalker were wrong. You have always attacked planeswalkers directly and as such Weathered Bodyguards will not redirect the damage to itself.

Non-combat damage to a player used to be able to be redirected to planeswalkers that the player controlled, but they changed that rule a few years ago and now you target planeswalkers directly so Pariah won't redirect a lightning bolt aimed at a planeswalker.

D10 aren't usually spin down because you want opposite faces to add to 1 more than the number of sides on the die. so you are buying 3 D10 that are worthless for rolling as well as the tray.

No, morph is an ability that allows you to play the card face down. It doesn't change the mana cost or typing of the card or add an additional "face". Face down cards in play are simply defines as being 2/2s with no mana cost or type.

Said on If I propose ......


You have no obligation to inform them that you intend to respond at a certain time, however; if you wish to shortcut you have to declare a stopping point for the short cut. You can't just ask "any responses" and then shortcut to just before the last one resolves. The choices are to either resolve one trigger at a time or propose a short cut with a clear and well defined stopping point. I am of the opinion that your opponent will figure you are up to something if you don't shortcut and there will be nothing gained by it, but that is an option. The problem with just asking "any responses" is that your shortcut does not have a defined stopping point in that case.

The update wasn't that you no longer need all the targets, it was that all the targets no longer had to be different. To use their example, it used to be that if Tree of Tales was the only artifact out you had to choose another land. Now you can choose it for both artifact and for land.

It doesn't work and you have the reasoning correct. Though do remember that you can copy opponent creatures with hexproof, creatures with protection from the clone, and creatures with shroud since it doesn't actually target.

Kicker and splice are in fact replacement effects, as are most other optional additional and alternative costs. The Arena thing seems to be a bug, you should have been able to clone a thing.

Daveslab2022, I realized what they were driving at and was trying to use rhetoric to get OP to realize that ordering of triggers is not ordering of events. Nothing, not even in UN sets, allows you to change the order that events happened in. A single effect causing a mass zone change is the only way that anything ever happens simultaneously, and that has no ordering at all to be rearranged. Game events always have a well defined order that they happen in. Triggers and Replacement effects are the only things that get ordered.

There is nothing misleading about triggered abilities. Triggered abilities wait until their trigger condition has been matched to do anything. Therefore Lotus Field is on the battlefield when its ability triggers. Since it can't enter the battlefield to trigger the ability before it is on the battlefield due to it entering the battlefield. Replacement effects are what modifies an event as it is happening. The oracle text of Lotus Vale shows that its ability is a replacement effect. "If Lotus Vale would enter the battlefield, sacrifice two untapped lands instead. If you do, put Lotus Vale onto the battlefield. If you don’t, put it into its owner’s graveyard."

To answer the Hydroid Krasis point that got brought up earlier, the life gain and draw always happen before Hydroid Krasis resolves. Once again it is because triggers don't happen until their trigger event has happened. The first step of casting a spell is to put it on the stack. You can't have cast the spell to trigger the ability before you put the spell on the stack to cast it. The on-cast trigger goes on the stack above the spell and resolves first. Same scenario with Rhystic Study . The study trigger always resolves first and you can use a Counterspell drawn from them not paying the to counter their spell.

It entering is not simultaneous with the trigger. It has to be on the battlefield when the trigger resolves because it doesn't even trigger until it has entered. Then the ability has to go on the stack and resolve.

I'd be interested in knowing what rules allow reordering of events. I know of ordering multiple triggers as you would like if you have more than one to go on the stack at once, I know of choosing the order that replacement effects apply, I know of nothing that allows reordering of events. They either happen simultaneously as with Genesis Wave or in a specified order as with Hypergenesis .

They could use an instant or ability to remove Near-Death Experience on their end step.

They could use an instant or ability to kill you on their end step or on your upkeep before the trigger resolves to kill you.

Ok, you seem like an aware individual. I'm trying to think how to relate an actual survey I have seen to this without getting political, but well it is impossible. Shortly after he took office the Trump Campaign posted a "survey" on how people thought he was doing. The options were "Good" "Great" "Fantastic" and "Excellent". Some people are not open to any criticism at all. You just happened to hit a nerve with me being fed up with America's politics. Sorry.

The buff persists until the end of the turn even if he copies something else.

"What do people think? Good idea, or good idea that needs more refinement?"

What I think is that you need to be open to the fact that some people may think that your ideas are bad. I personally don't see the point of playing with no tutors and so have no strong feelings about a tag. I do have strong feelings about leading questions and presenting options that are not complete.

I want reprint sets that aren't limited print run and don't up shift the rarity of cards because of their power. The secondary market is crazy and only getting worse.

June 20, 2019 9:21 p.m.

It looks like I'm not communicating effectively or people are deliberately strawmanning. Either way; goodbye thread.

June 20, 2019 4:56 p.m.

I think you missed my point. All cards that see any standard play at all drop after rotation. My point was that not all money cards in EDH have any demand from any other format. So there is no need to muddy the waters by making an inaccurate statement.

The post-rotation drop is from decreased demand from, and a big sell off by standard players. Sustained demand from modern players didn't prevent shocks from having a post rotation drop when RTR rotated. If a card sees ANY serious standard play it WILL drop.
