Rhadamanthus on What's the difference?

A side comment: Silver-bordered "Un" sets are meant to play around with things that the regular game of MtG can't do, but sometimes a card or mechanic will inspire a designer to realize it actually can be done. The development of Host/Augment helping to inspire the development of Mutate is probably the #1 example. Single card examples like Super-Duper Death Ray -> Flame Spill and The Cheese Stands Alone -> Barren Glory also exist.

Nearrrlllyyy a turn 1 Barren Glory win. Back to the drawing board then, lol.

There's a small wrench in your plan; Barren Glory has an intervening if clause on the trigger, so if you don't meet the condition, it won't trigger. The main consequence is you will have to sacrifice the Caverns on the end step before your turn, so it is a turn 2 win, not turn 1.

For a funky Barren Glory win I put together this deck that wins with Barren Glory on turn 1. It needs a dream opening hand but works. Take a look: Turn 1 Win Barren Glory

I always thought that Barren Glory was the most insane Wincon to ever pull off in a Constructed format..

At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control ten or more nonland, nontoken permanents and control each nonland permanent included in your starting deck, you win the game.

Hey burferking, the only combo I had listed publicly was this one:

Hellcarver Demon + High Market + Vampiric Tutor / Enlightened Tutor / something that can put a card on top of your library

All of this is to win with Barren Glory. A jank wincon that I enjoy :P

Oops, should say If you control no permanents, not the exact text from Barren Glory.

Static based on Kataki, War's Wage

+3 based on Balance

+1 based on Mana Flare

-1 based on Sphere of Resistance

-13 based on Barren Glory, obviously.

I guess I should have used Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Stasis or the like to make it feel more .
