Consider moving Atraxa into the deck and trying Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as your Commanders. You won't look back.

Rey/Ish are far more explosive with +1+1 counters than a single proliferate per turn... Atraxa is better for harder to get counters like loyalty and whatnot. They draw less hate than Atraxa, are easier on your mana to cast, and Reyhan's ability to move counters instead of losing them all on death REALLY ups the resiliency of the deck.

It also allows for some very explosive combos with Blade of Selves and Rite of Replication.

Little Rey of Ishine (Reyhan/Ishai 2.7 cmc) (my deck) shows the crazy math. Reyhan and Ishai's Counterattack and Reyhan&Ishai | Where Unstoppable Meets Immovable! are both good decks to get ideas from too.

Haha, I feel you. Sometimes you just need to pull a deck out and turn things sideways.

One of the best decisions I made, that I don’t often see talked about, is running plenty of 1-drop Llanowar Elves as well as the 3-drop Cultivate variants that get you more than one land. This gives the best odds of curving into a Turn 3 Xenagos and getting the party started.

Caller of the Pack and Blade of Selves are personal favorites, since everyone gets to party. If you decide to go the Malignus route, I don’t see Realm Seekers talked about much. It’s often a 20/20 before Xenagos’ trigger plus can fetch utility lands like Kessig Wolf Run

If you need protection from white exile then Bolt Bend almost always costs 1 Red.

Party on Wayne!

Tylord2894 on Myriad and Added Creature Abilities

Unlife is mostly correct here, but there are some very important things that aren't quite correct.

First, to address the question at hand, any copy or Clone of a permanent will not have the abilities granted to that permanent by the majority of effects. Such effects include that of Equipment like Grafted Exoskeleton, Auras like Phyresis, and effects grant by static abilities like that of Triumph of the Hordes (keeping with the Infect theme, though there are plenty of other examples).

Now, this does not mean that copies/ clones ONLY copy what's printed on a card. Rather, they copy a permanent's copiable values. The copiable values of an object are determined in layer 1. Most of the time, this is what's "printed on the card", but there are several common effects that change an object's copiable values. Among the most common are Mutate, Clone effects, and (technically) Transform/Morph/Manifest type effects.

As a quick example, let's say my Clone copies my Bear Cub while I also control a Grizzly Bears. I then make tokens of this "Clone" with Blade of Selves. I can not have these token enter as copies of Grizzly Bears even though Clone says so. Rather, after I cloned the Cub, its copiable values became those of Bear Cub.

I know this is a lot, but I hope this helps!!

If the creature has Blade of Selves + Grafted Exoskeleton, will the copied token have infect?

ilovemydoghisnameistuna on Kaseto

I only ask because it appears you have several cards that all want to be strapped onto the same dude and have that one snake swing in with Kaseto's ability (Quietus Spike, Blade of Selves, Blackblade Reforged, etc.) whereas it would make more sense to me in a go-wide deck to have stuff like Gaea's Anthem or whatever.

Other than that, I think Kaseto lends him/herself to a Voltron or Voltron-by-proxy very well; some of those pieces should definitely stay as a backup plan.

Reigrom, Soul-Shaman

Legendary Creature - Giant Shaman


Other Giants you control get +1/+1 and cost less to cast.

Myriad (Whenever this creature attacks, for each opponent other than defending player, you may create a token that's a copy of this creature that's tapped and attacking that player or a planeswalker they control. Exile the tokens at end of combat.)

Creature tokens created by Reigrom, Soul-Shaman's Myriad ability aren't affected by the legendary rule.


So yes, the tokens are legendary but are not removed due to state-based actions. However this is only the tokens created by Reigrom, Soul-Shaman's ability. Replacement effects such as Parallel Lives hold no such benefit, nor do ones made by outside Myriad effects such as Blade of Selves.

This also means that yes, each token buffs each other Giant. So each 4/4 becomes a 7/7.

Make Koth, turned by the Phyrexian. So, a Phyrexian Koth Planeswalker.

Keep him mono-red.
