I've seen this done even worse with Rogue's Passage.
It received a look of disgust from most of the table.
If you're having problems with this kind of thing, Trap Runner is a fantastic card in white to stop nonsense like this.
(best way to fight nonsense is with silliness... Master of Cruelties comes in for the kill, and smacks his head on a tree branch.)

Ah, no, certainly not over, Darsul.
The fact that the gargoyle is an artifact creature that I can sac to the extricator T3 to get a horror and +2 types to delirium is game-winning.
Then the ability to flip into a flying bruiser early with Vessel of Volatility is just brutal.

Darsul, I'm already running the Thraben Gargoyle Flip, and it works great as it is two card types towards delirium, a great bargain. The werewolf, on the other hand, I'll have to test. I like the idea, and have been considering replacing Skin Invasion Flip.
Thanks Geo67! I still like this deck, even if it lacks the speed of a newer AER deck.

Looking through some of my cards, what about Alive / Well for another token and some serious lifegain?
Just a thought.

If you're being controlled by another player, they will get to make the choice of putting it in the command zone, or letting it head to the original destination.
This won't stop you from getting them back from the other zone if they would transition out of it, e.g., exile from graveyard, but if they exile your commander while controlling you and elect to keep your commander in exile, then your commander remains in exile (and you have clearly made a new Arch-Nemesis...)
Strangely enough, a player with Eldrazi could "rescue" your commander. (Wasteland Strangler)

If I make it italics will it double italic?

Okay... I know this is "competitive" and this card might feel "silly."
But, since you're running so many ways to get infinite mana...

Worth noting that this is more the "Budget Primer" for my deck now, as the physical deck has added:
It flows a bit smoother with those changes.

I have, RedlegReaper, and found that +1/+1 Slivers are more reliable, and less prone to being arbitrarily broken.

I learned a lot from my three-color deck, Spawning Pool Party, and just expanded from there.

It's meant almost as a budget primer, Ghosty.
There are a ton of cards that add a lot to it, but this is the skeleton to build up from.

Horned Sliver is the only one I've really considered, the others are simply too high on the curve. One of the strengths this deck gets is the fact that with Gemhide Sliver you end up with the effect of "Tap two untapped Slivers you control: Put a Sliver from your hand into play."
A CMC 3 Sliver would throw this off a little, those other big bruisers would be hard to cast. Might still be worth trying as a one-of to see if they make for an explosive late-game, but I would hate to see one in my opening hand.

It's looking like this is becoming a 100% "no."
February 11, 2017 4:20 a.m.
I hadn't looked, so I wasn't willing to say it's impossible.
Closest thing I could think of off the top of my head was Burgeoning, but that's only for lands in hand.

A very cheap ($) big beater (or token generator) for you would be Custodi Soulbinders.
Mid to late game we're talking Titan sized.
February 11, 2017 4:05 a.m.
That's a lot of token generation for such a budget deck!
February 11, 2017 3:53 a.m.
So you also, under normal conditions, couldn't play that land if you'd already a land in your turn.
If you have an ability that allows to play lands during your opponent's turn, that will be an exception, but make sure it doesn't say "from your hand" like Burgeoning.
Hope this helps!

You can only play the card when it would be legal to play normally.
