Until end of turn, gain control of target creature and it gains haste. Untap and goad that creature. (Until your next turn, that creature attacks each combat if able and attacks a player other than you if able.)

Besmirch Discussion

legendofa on Adventures in the Forgotten Realms …

2 weeks ago

I'm going to complain a little more. I apologize.

Why are all the bards in Magic ? Yisan, the Wanderer Bard was kind of the trendsetter, and he's not especiallu D&D bard-ish. I can kind of forgive Elvish Bard and Joraga Bard since they're Elves.

Which of these describe traditional/stereotypical D&D bards?

Instinct driven, nature-centric, strong belief in destiny, physically powerful, focused on predator-prey interactions, minimalist

My answer is none. There is nothing about traditional D&D bards. They tend to fall into two broad categories, inspiring and manipulative. Inspiring would be -- Rally the Peasants , Outlaws' Merriment , Deafening Clarion , and Heartwarming Redemption are cards I would identify as showing this type of bard. Manipulative would be , with Beguiler of Wills , Besmirch , Role Reversal , and Captivating Crew as representative cards. Bards aren't nature characters. They can probably survive in the woods alone, but so can a paladin. Bards are , not .

Daedalus19876 on Purphoros, The Budget Blooded (Under $70)

Ooo, making suggestions for budget decks is always a fun time!

I'd recommend Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for his -2, since you can exile a large creature you cheated out for a permanent copy of a LARGER creature! He's only $3 or so, as well. Besmirch is a great variant/improvement on Threaten , and currently Magus of the Moon is super cheap due to Time Spiral Remastered... Goblin Engineer could be a good way to fetch Sundial of the Infinite , perhaps?

Hope this helps! :)

Thanks for the response Abzkaban, I'll definitely give it a shot. Good point on the creature combo. Not very much combo in my meta, but that's certainly something to keep in mind.

I'm still working my way through the pages and pages of comments so apologies if this has been previously discussed - but what does everyone's wishboard look like? I'm planning on starting out with both Burning Wish & Mastermind's Acquisition so prioritizing soceries in the board. First revision:

Besmirch, Exsanguinate, Merciless Eviction, Vandalblast, Vindicate, Wheel of Fortune

Thoughts? What do other people prefer?

Can't wait to try this out - hopefully next week.

CaptCreek on Krenko Not-So-Budget-Anymore EDH

Since goblins are very raider-ish and thanks to Ixalan are ACTUAL pirates (Or... pirate-adjacent?), I've elected to put in a "Steal your stuff, use it against you, then blow it up so you can't get it back" subtheme. Cards like Threaten , Harness by Force , Hijack , Frenzied Fugue , Traitorous Blood , Besmirch , Mark of Mutiny , etc. add some awesome flavour to the deck and sort of adds an element of flexibility and chaos that comes with always having different toys to play with depending on the decks you're playing against.

That, and the fact you can use them on your own Krenko to abuse his activated ability by untapping with him multiple times a turn! Kari Zev's Expertise is an amazing effect, because it lets you cast another 2cmc threaten effect from your hand for free, making even MORE goblins!

That's my take anyway. It also feels very goblin like to steal someone's toys, beat them over the head with them and then blow them up after they're done.

Older20 on Marchesa: Queen of Pain (100% Altered)

Hi cheeseycrackers, I really like it. I might consider changing out Besmirch and Fiery Confluence for a bigger Sunforger package and a little more protection (And style points) with cards like Mana Tithe , Apostle's Blessing , Faith's Shield and Rebuff the Wicked which have all worked great for me. Having said all that, I would be more than happy to play your build, looks fun and strong!

SubduedRhombus on Modern Banned Error?

2 years ago

I have a blue red modern deck and TappedOut says my deck is illegal because of Besmirch even though I've checked the Modern banned list and the card isn't there. What's up with that?
