Avenger of Zendikar Discussion

Fun concept.

Not sure if I believe her static ability is all that strong.

Granted in a shell that focuses on mass-producing saprolings, it can outright win the game. Although that same effect can be achieved through a Zulaport Cutthroat and any free sac outlet .

If we're talking Standard/Modern, I believe a 7 MV (feels weird to say instead of CMC) that requires a major setup for the pay off is too clunky to be competitive.


What if you changed the static to a triggered ability instead of an active one? That means you can utilize the plants and saprolings as blocking fodder and still get the benefits of them dying.

Also I'm puzzled why the -4 (which is a very substantial amount of loyalty) only grants specific creature types either lifelink (on a zero power token) or wither (on a 1/1 body). That seems disproportionally bad. Especially for a 7 MV planeswalker.

The ultimate is just a double Kokusho, the Evening Star death trigger, which is quite nice.

I must comment on the use of hybrid mana as well, since green does not deal in making players lose life (well outside combat). I feel like you cannot justify the use of hybrid mana here. At the very least it should be in the mana cost to force both colors in there.


I don't mean to take over, but I can't help but make a suggestion for a revised version.

RebelGenius Avenger of Zendikar is a little out of my budget, but I'd CERTAINLY put it in if I ever get around to getting my hands on it! I know Esix, Fractal Bloom is also a bit pricey, but I'm hoping I pull one from the box I bought. If not, I'm a bit more open to spending money on a commander.

I like this deck quite a bit! You might want to consider putting in Doubling Season and Parallel Lives , although unfortunately they are pretty expensive. Also, I would definitely put in Avenger of Zendikar .

Oversimplify: I think everyone here knows my feelings on these kind of effects at this point.

Ruxa, Patient Professor: Cute, even if I never personally cared about vanilla tribal.

Fractal Harness: It's neat that the pseudo-Living Weapon part is basically optional since the token will be dead on arrival if you go with X = 0. Obviously another toy for Skullbriar, the Walking Grave . If I got it right, this will trigger Ezuri, Claw of Progress regardless of the value of X, which makes it extra neat for him

Theoretical Duplication: Oof. I doubt you'll get more than one batch of tokens out of this, but basically silencing all Creature spells (and Creature cheating) after the first thing you plagiarize is pretty good too. Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer got another toy in addition to Rionya, Fire Dancer

Spawning Kraken: This could have been a seafood commander in its own right, which makes me think that's something they're going to release relatively soon

Replication Technique: This seems way better than Creative Technique ; you can come to an agreement over what's copied, making it way more predictable

Perplexing Test: Brudiclaaaaad

Deekah, Fractal Theorist: Meh. Slightly more expensive Talrand, Sky Summoner that forces you to keep track of a lot of dice

Esix, Fractal Bloom: Spooky art; more what I had in mind when I heard about the creature type. Anyway, Avenger of Zendikar obviously curves nicely from this, probably intentionally so. Note that it doesn't restrict you to copying just your own creatures.

Avenger of Zendikar should easily be in here, the card generates so much value for this deck

Now you've got me curious. What on earth is the instant-speed spell you're casting in this hypothetical that successfully cascades into Avenger of Zendikar ? Dig Through Time ? Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur ?

ArrestedSnow on Does Rashmi get around the …

If I have out Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and I play my first spell during combat and topdeck an Avenger of Zendikar , can I play that creature right then and there? Does Rashmi give things flash?

Polaris on Do Doubling Season and Hardened …

A replacement effect can't apply to a single event more than once. If they could, Doubling Season and Hardened Scales would go infinite on their own.

Like Omniscience_is_life said as well, these aren't triggered abilities. Triggered abilities start with "when," "whenever," "at," etc. When their trigger condition is met, they are put on the stack and later resolve. A replacement effect usually starts with "if," but pretty much always includes the word "instead." These effects don't go on the stack at all; they just modify the event they apply to. This means that neither Doubling Season nor Hardened Scales ever puts any counters on anything. The easiest way to parse replacement effects is to think of them rewriting the original effect. In this case, that would look something like the following:

" Avenger of Zendikar 's landfall ability triggers, putting one +1/+1 counter (Hardened Scales: actually two) (Doubling Season: actually four) on each Plant you control."

The source of the counters is always Avenger of Zendikar 's landfall trigger, and all of the counters are placed simultaneously as the landfall ability is resolving, just like they would have been without Doubling Season and Hardened Scales in play. No extra triggers are created; the only difference is the number of counters Avenger of Zendikar places.
