Said on Draft Stories...

#1

i mean even in draft sims i pick up the money cards because that's what i'd do in real life and i like to get an accurate idea of what i'd do in paper.

My story takes place in the theros block. I loved going for RB aggro Minotaurs. i usually did ok, but not great, mostly because i would usually force it regardless of how good the card pool was for it, half the time unintentionally. one time i roll up to the lgs with my friend and we sit down next to each other to do a draft. i jokingly told him since he was going to be passing me cards 2/3 rounds that i'd beat him up if he let me build minotaurs again. now you've probably heard of hate drafting but apparently fear drafting is real because i ended up with a UW deck with no red or black cards to speak of because he took everyone he saw to make sure i wouldn't try it. and so thats the story of how my friend got first place in the draft with a RB minotaurs deck.

Xica is correct, i forgot that removing the target during casting isn't an issue. And yes the bolt wasn't a great example as many of the mutated creatures can have toughness above 4 but the point still stands that a less conditional removal spell can still get rid of your mutated creature meaning you still spent 2+ cards when they only spent 1. so you will still want something that gives you value on removal, or prevents common removal in some form.

Not what my user name means (though it's also not what many would joke that it means) but heres what i got.

Holder of Aces

In case the image doesn't load.

Holder of Aces (1)(U)(B)

2/3 - Human

When Holder of Aces enters the battlefield, search your library for a card and exile it face down with an Ace counter on it.

{u/b}{u/b}: Return Holder of Aces to your hand. Each opponent draws a card. {t}, Sacrifice Holder of Aces: Add a card exiled with an Ace counter on it to your hand.

Your just upset that I was better at cheating than you.

at least in terms of modern you need to be prepared for removal. most decks don't build one big creature because Path to Exile and Fatal Push exist. you plan on mutating that Dark Confidant? Lightning Bolt! you lost your base creature and your mutate card. buffs leave you open to 2-for-1s. so you need to find a way to mitigate that risk. anything with persist, undying or hexproof should all be good targets. note that in the case of undying/persist you can still lose some value if they kill your creature in response to casting the mutate card. you will get your creature on the field back but the mutate card will fizzle due to losing it's target. it's a 1-for-1 instead of a 2-for-1 so it's not as bad but something you should consider.

most of the mutate cards are pretty bad if cast for their normal cost because they are seldom worth their stat lines and they don't have any of the abilities i mentioned to make them good targets to mutate. so you will want to look at the cards with low mutate costs or at least cards that if they have a higher mutate cost do something incredibly powerful such as starrix.

if you want you can play cards like Kira, Great Glass-Spinner as a way of giving psuedo hexproof to your creatures.
