Said on Why is WotC …...

The fact that it is colorless with colorless costs makes it so powerful. Maybe even really OP.

This card gives traditional blue and red powers to green, white, and black.

Between Blue and Red you could already copy anything in magic. But now it's on one colorless card and any color can use it.

I wonder what kind of interesting new synergies or combos will be unearthed from colors that needed to splash blue or red to do what this card provides.

Green destroying stuff is not a color pie break. It has been unconditionally destroying any permanent since at least revised. Desert Twister kills anything and has been reprinted many times.

I agree that it is not something you would build a deck around for Modern. If you did build a deck around maximizing it's value, there are going to be better card choices to fulfill it's role in the deck.

But i could see this in a casual baloth or other landfall deck. Or as late game to get back flip lands you played as land so you can use their spell value instead. Like playing an Akoum Warrior  Flip as land on an early turn, then mid-late game getting it back to hand to cast it as a Akoum Warrior  Flip.

I do like the synergy of the card and i think it's great for standard. Adding landfall triggers or bouncing a flip land to use it's other face in the late game.

In the late game, I like the idea of using it to return cards like Agadeem, the Undercrypt to your hand when you may not need the mana and letting you cast Agadeem's Awakening  Flip.

Do plants have a legendary creature yet? Or Is Phylath, World Sculptor the closest we can get?

Those would great with Sprouting Phytohydra!

thank you for the code!

If you want to be in , another possibility is Neyith of the Dire Hunt.

I have not built using her, (him?), yet. And there are other cards probably better for a stomp commander.

but when this card got spoiled I was intrigued by the fact that this card has what you need to help win with a stompy deck. It has card advantage when your creatures fight or get blocked, it can double a creature's power for 3 mana and it forces a block when you pump the creature.

It supports going wide or going big.

Just in case you are just kicking around ideas or for something more casual than cEDH.

Said on Fixing White in …...

I actually agree with there being nothing wrong with White.

I have never really understood where people get the "white is the worst color" from.

September 23, 2020 9:04 p.m.

Any repeatable creature production whose only cost is mana is decent enough to drop into a deck if it does not have a disadvantage or serious tempo loss. Entering play tapped might not be considered tier 1 cEDH but it's certainly better than putting a plains into play after turn 4.

White has a lot of advantages but it can be and is slow against the new fast combo mtg environment. There are commander decks that plan on winning in the first 3 turns with a 100 card count deck.

I love white, great global control color, great fort color, great death & taxes or stax color. But it is at a disadvantage versus really fast combo decks nowadays.

I am with you about grilles and things like furniture dollies. During a move, I bought a furniture dolly, (the small, carpeted rectangles with 4 wheels), and one side's wheels were fixed and not free-rotating. Very annoying for that application.

Also, speed is an important factor. When the rear wheels are fixed and cannot turn freely, then the rear of the "vehicle" has predictable and reliable behavior.

It also helps with centering or tracking. If the rear wheels could move freely you are adding more fail points that can destabilize the vehicle or impact it's direction of travel.

If you have ever been on a skateboard and experienced "speed wobbles", just imagine how much worse it would be if all 4 wheels could turn independently of each other.

Nearrrlllyyy a turn 1 Barren Glory win. Back to the drawing board then, lol.

And I don't think you can call them new or unique archetypes. The ability they have, to put any number of them in a deck, is not a win condition by itself. One is still Mill and the other is, what?, aggro? Mid-range goodstuff?

thank you for the upvote!

That is a good one, This deck does not have much to recover from wipes with. That indestructible on Avacyn was for helping with that. There are a lot of choices for that too. I have been considering a planeswalker, or the new cleric that produces angels. I am also light on lifegain triggers so this needs some thinking. I will add reya to the maybeboard for now. thank you.

Understood, Tijmentij; Because mana symbols are the main guide to assign color identify, I believed flip sides without any mana-cost were ok. But you are correct. I don't know when or if this was ever different but the comprehensive rules are clear;

Comprehensive Rules (August 7, 2020—Double Masters):

"903.4c The back face of a double-faced card (see rule 711) is included when determining a card’s color identity. This is an exception to rule 711.4a."
Example: Civilized Scholar is the front face of a double-faced card with mana cost {2}{U}. Homicidal Brute is the back face of that double-faced card and has a red color indicator. The card’s color identity is blue and red.

Now I need a good replacement for her...

Hi, I found your deck because...pirates!

It does not show who your Oathbreaker is,(Planeswalker Commander), or your general's Signature Spell.

I am assuming your general is Tamiyo, Collector of Tales because she is your only 2 color planeswalker. And your signature spell is Assert Authority?

To have them show up in the deck list as the general and their signature spell, just edit the deck and after the card name add the following asteriskCMDRasterisk. Just put asterisks in front of and behind the code CMDR. Do that for both cards and they will show up as your general and their signature spell.

For a funky Barren Glory win I put together this deck that wins with Barren Glory on turn 1. It needs a dream opening hand but works. Take a look: Turn 1 Win Barren Glory
