Ball Lightning Discussion

Coward_Token on Innistrad: Midnight Hunt and Crimson …

3 weeks ago

Beloved Beggar // Generous Soul: This is cute... although the concept of a senior (and homeless?) beggar is pretty sad in hindsight. Anyway, disturb is a neat design, seems reminiscent of Eternalize.

Allied pseudo-Battle Lands: I prefer Fast Lands but these are still a welcome budget alternative.

Jadar: Is decay the token drawback mechanic? Basically Ball Lightning keyworded; kinda odd that it's tied to something that's mainly black-flavored.

Tovolar: Awoo~. More human and less magic-y than I imagined, but I'm not going to complain too loudly. I think we've all seen some variation of this as a custom card before, including the generic tribal rewards, but even though it's not super revolutionary it's liberating to finally see it happen. With the leak of the day/night mechanic I was a little worried they weren't going to introduce backwards compatible support for the old Werewolf cards for EDH, so I'm quite happy to be proven wrong in that. Finally: tribal Kessig Wolf Run.

Sigarda: Kinda unexciting for EDH Human tribal at least.

Secrets of the Key: Lonis, Cryptozoologist is obviously happy about investigate's return, tho honestly I'm kinda confused why Clues need a keyword tied to them anyway (not like we have "cook" or "dig" for its sister tokens).

Brutal Cathar // Moonrage Brute: While it's a bit insulting that one of the beter Werewolves isn't gruul-legal, I do like this design for boros. You dared force night to turn into day? Fuck you, Banisher Priest more of your stuff.

Tavern Ruffian: I mean no offense, but the art seems to feature the least female-coded female human figure yet in Magic, unless there's a key signifier I'm missing. I'd be curious to see if the art description specifically asked for that to be more diversive.

Avacyn's Memorial: Meh, seems overcosted, esp. since it only covers legends.

"Visions" mechanic: I like that this helps make costlier commanders better, even if e.g. Ghalta, Primal Hunger will be smooching of it. Also, Gitrog!

Alright. Oh nice, that deck looks pretty cool, and it's pretty budget for MTGO. Also if you're interested, here's my Ball Lightning deck: Ball Lightning Never Dies. I haven't updated it in a while tho.

I like stuff like Ball Lightning for Brion. Just throw him away before he would die.

Legendary Artifact

,: Target player draws a card and gets an inebriation counter. (A player with ten or more inebriation counters loses the game and gets a ride home.)

A shifted card based on a classic that wasn’t in the time spiral block. Example: Groundbreaker is the shifted version of Ball Lightning

You should realllly replace terminate with Fatal Push . You should be triggering revolt most turns, even without fetches, and the card isn't expensive anymore.

Also, I know you really want to keep the deck budget, but you should probably consider adding more dual lands. Not having a discard outlet and not being able to cast Ball Lightning and Lightning Skelemental would suck balls. Dragonskull Summit and Blightstep Pathway  Flip (or Smoldering Marsh ) are all solid options around 2-4 bucks each, since I don't think this deck wants to play the budget gain 1 life enters tapped duals.
