Hi All,

I'm Tyler. I mostly EDH and some Pioneer. I also love a good game of Tower. I started playing this amazing game when I was a freshman in college (2016), so right when Kaladesh block started. Magic very quickly became my primary hobby, so I might not be as experienced as some players, but that doesn't change my love of the game. Since then, I've really gotten in semi-competitive EDH and then into Pioneer.

I believe that magic is about the best personality test in existence. So, me telling you that I'm mostly a combo player that doesn't like combat and loves Jeskai (or just not green) should tell you everything you need to know about me (for better or worse). My favorite way to play is with a quick combo and "selective amounts of control."

I've been slowing working on getting some customization done for my decks and profile. I hope you enjoy it. I'm open to suggestions.

Lastly, I'm an L1 judge who is on track to become an L2. Even though I play only a few formats, I love judging just about any format.

Thanks and happy casting!!

(P.S. The background of my profile is Archfiend of Ifnir. I had a goofy combo deck that used them back when I started, and I've loved that card every since. Also, who doesn't love Seb McKinnon's art??)

No, you can't reveal Bala Ged Recovery  Flip off of Vessel of Nascency.

By default, the characteristics of a modal double-faced card are the characteristics of the front face. In this case, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip is a sorcery. It will only be considered a land card when it's back-face is up while on the battlefield.

Hope this helps!!

Yes, this does create an infinite loop.

You can sacrifice the copy of River Kelpie to your sac-outlet. This will trigger Persist for the Spark Double of River Kelpie. The Double will come back and need to copy the Kelpie again. At which point, the new copy of the Kelpie will have a +1 counter (from the Double's ability) and a -1 counter (from Persist). These will be removed since they cancel each other out. Now, you're back where you started.

The key thing is that a creature with a +1/+1 counter and a -1/-1 counter will have them removed when state-based actions are checked (rule below).

Hope this helps!!

122.3. If a permanent has both a +1/+1 counter and a -1/-1 counter on it, N +1/+1 and N -1/-1 counters are removed from it as a state-based action, where N is the smaller of the number of +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters on it. See rule 704.

By the letter of the CR, you can't reorganize the order of your graveyard (rule below); however, at a tournament, you can reorder your graveyard provided that there are no cards from before Urza's Saga (also, rule below).

Since Ashen Ghoul is from Ice Age, which is before Urza's Saga, you can't ever reorder your graveyard in a game where you can play Ashen Ghoul.

Hope this helps!!

CR 400.5. The order of objects in a library, in a graveyard, or on the stack can’t be changed except when effects or rules allow it. The same is true for objects arranged in face-down piles in other zones. Other objects in other zones can be arranged however their owners wish, although who controls those objects, whether they’re tapped or flipped, and what other objects are attached to them must remain clear to all players.

MTR 3.14 In formats involving only cards from Urza’s SagaTM and later, players may change the order of their graveyard at any time. A player may not change the order of an opponent’s graveyard.

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild will be a 1/1.

When determining the P/T of a creature, we use a sublayer system. In the first sublayer, you take the P/T defined by any characteristic-defining abilities (CDA), like Ashaya's star/star, and effectively overwrite the "printed" power and toughness of the creature. At this point, Ashaya will be a star/star. Next, you consider any P/T setting abilities, like that of Life and Limb. At this point, Ashaya will be a 1/1. Provided that nothing else is affecting the P/T of Ashaya, you're done, and Ashaya will be a 1/1.

Hope this helps!!

It looks like you double-posted by accident. I've posted an answer on the other thread.

No, you don't need to sacrifice a second creature. You don't cast copies of spells, so you don't need to pay the costs of the original spell again.

Notably, you can play Sea Gate Stormcaller and sacrifice it to Mutual Destruction to kill two creatures that your opponent(s) control.

Hope this helps!!
