Blim, Comedic Genius

Legendary Creature — Imp


Whenever Blim, Comedic Genius deals combat damage to a player, that player gains control of target permanent you control. Then each player loses life and discards cards equal to the number of permanents they control but don't own.

BigBadE on Killing by giving opponents "positive" …

3 months ago

I'm trying to make a "kill them with kindness deck". The basic idea is to give opponents cards I have with things like Blim, Comedic Genius. This is easy enough, and there are a lot of cards you can give opponents that just have inherent downsides. However, is there any way to lose from positive effects? For example:

  • Forcing an opponent to draw enough to mill them to death

  • Any card that takes life for some non-optional trigger (for example, Demonlord Belzenlok, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder. Phage the Untouchable technically works but I'd like something more like Belzenlok or Kothophed, which takes life.)

  • Any other gimmicks that can be abused to deal damage with things like token generation, mana generation, draw, etc... (like if mana burn was still around, giving your opponent a ton of mana)

This is limited by two factors:

  1. I can't find any way to force opponents to cast instants/sorceries (If you know of one, I'd love to hear it!)

  2. I can't find any way to force trigger abilities on an opponent's creatures (maybe can I give them to an opponent after triggering the ability? Any possible way to do this is welcome as well).

Any ideas are welcome, I know it's a strange idea but I bet there are a few cards that would work.

Oh hey, this is definently the first time I've seen Jon. Obviously a lot of overlap with Blim, Comedic Genius's creatures. Doesn't seem to be a lot of straightforward Donate effects in blue, but I'm thinking the way to go is exchange effects like Gilded Drake and Puca's Mischief, could be decent value. Would probably want some more pillow fort to compensate for those extra creatures you exchange away since they won't be goaded. Maybe something with self-sacrifice as a drawback, e.g. Drifter il-Dal?

I built a similar Blim, Comedic Genius deck once

Rhadamanthus on Curses and Blim, Comedic Genius

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to create a reference pop-up. It's the best way to make sure everyone understands what's going on with your question: Blim, Comedic Genius, Curse of the Nightly Hunt (for an example of a curse)

The curse will stay attached to whoever it's enchanting. Changing control of an aura doesn't cause it to move.

It's important to pay close attention to what the "Enchant N" ability says, because in some cases this may cause the aura to fall off. For example, if you gave control of Dead Man's Chest to the same player who controls the enchanted creature, it would fall off because it's not attached to one of their opponents' creatures.

The list looks good, but only four Traders to give away things seems not enough. Maybe consider some copies of Harmless Offering or Blim, Comedic Genius.

Hateful Disconection


Creatures controlled by a player who isn't their owner are goaded.

: Target player gains control of a creature you own.

I think Xantcha, Sleeper Agent and Blim, Comedic Genius would like this. (and yes, I realize Thantis and Karazikar would, too)

There was a ninja, so do their challenge:

Make a card call Dance of the Fae.

This is something that I only witnessed across the table, but it's too good not to share.

We were playing some casual 5 player commander, with me on Reyav, Master Smith, and my opponents on Marwyn, the Nurturer, Nethroi, Apex of Death, Blim, Comedic Genius, and Otrimi, the Ever-Playful/Umori, the Collector-creatures. This pre-HBer ban, and the Otrimi player has a commanding boardstate with both Opposition Agent and Hullbreacher. The Blim player has a Steel Golem, though, and he gets it through--shutting the Otrimi player out of the game entirely for about 5 turns till he gets a Murderous Rider off.

This Sultai player is one of the most level-headed people I know, but he kept shaking his head and saying "dude, I'm on all creatures..."
