ChaosJester on Shahrazad - Wish effects Interaction

Hey guys,

Shahrazad resolves in the main game and a subgame starts. Is it now possible to Burning Wish for a Shahrazad in the first subgame from the main game, then start a second subgame in which I Wish for the previous Shahrazad, and so on?

Thank you!

I just absolutely love this! Illusions of Grandeur and Donate was one of the first combo decks I made and I still love it! The Burning Wishes to tutor from the sideboard is really nice as well. My decks never had anything so sophisticated :)

Just spitballing here. Kessig Flamebreather offers better early game defense than Firebrand Archer, and survives Shock. Pyrohemia could be interesting. How to Keep an Izzet Mage Busy combos aggressively with Guttersnipe, etc. Burning Wish could fetch it or an x damage spell. Valakut Awakening  Flip could help to assemble your combo or serve as a backup land drop. If you went green instead of blue you could run Time of Need or Living Wish, and replace a mana rock with Zhur-Taa Druid. I used to run him in this deck: Guttersnipe. Don't do this, but you could potentially go infinite with Aggravated Assault (mana and combats).

I'd be weary that 3-card combo decks can be inconsistent (Neheb + Mass Damage + Mana Sink). The best way to test decks is goldfish a dozen or so games (on tappedout). If you can consistently do what you want to on turns 5-6, it might be viable in our group. I goldfished a game; didn't get Neheb but Guttersnipe worked well enough. Life gain (Soul Warden, etc.) could be problematic for you.

If you're not running 4 of your combo pieces, you could run Wish and a copy of each (and some random stuff) in a Sideboard to have more access. There is also Burning Wish, but that can't find Pact for you, the card you need out first and thus might want more access to. With the high land count, maybe Raven's Crime? Maybe Geier Reach Sanitarium as a way to kickstart Anje again?

With your piles of mana, have you thought about using a wishboard? Burning Wish can be a copy of any Sorcery you want for 1R, lots of key Sorceries here. There is also Wish, which is more mana, but can find literally any card that would be helpful. I don't know how tight your mana is when it comes to closing out games, so apologies if this obviously won't work.

BEDECK on Storm but lions eye diamond isn't real

First things first: nice basics. And I like the sideboard. Good choice for card draws. I agree with the premise that LED isn't mandatory in a storm deck.

I disagree strongly with one card in the main: Lightning Bolt.

And I want to hear your reasons for the Chromatic Spheres.

I think the lands are ok but could be better: Archaeological Dig isn't the best one. I'd recommend Mana Confluence, City of Brass if your goal is to produce any kind of mana.

I think you should have some protection in the maindeck like Duress or Silence or even Swan Song.

I also want to name Peer into the Abyss just so you take a look at it and see if it's worth fitting in the sideboard for Burning Wish.

I'm a big fan of Wishclaw Talisman (activating it on the turn you1ll win).

LMBO! Nice!

I had a convoluted strategy in a Jeskai Enchantment Tribal Deck I theorycrafted once. The only reason I didn't pursue building the deck was because I got Priced out of some of the cards. I don't remember all the cards in the deck, but it went about like this:

  1. Start the game with Leyline of Anticipation on the battlefield

  2. Play Burning Wish to get Show and Tell

  3. Play Show and Tell to get Omniscience on the battlefield.

  4. Find and Cast Near-Death Experience.

  5. Find and cast Detention Sphere or Oblivion Ring to Exile Near-Death Experience.

  6. Cast Worldfire

Of course, this was much more linear and had Starfield of Nyx as a backup plan.

Yesterday on Which cards can a wish …

1 year ago

I found a thread from 2017 that says that, in a subgame created by Shahrazad, the owner of the Shahrazad card can cast Burning Wish to add Shahrazad into its owner's hand in the subgame from the stack in the main game.

So firstly I wanted to check if that was correct and is still correct.

If so, which other cards from public in-game zones can wish spells pull into the subgame? Could a card be pulled from the main game's graveyard? Battlefield? This all seems ridiculous, but frankly so do subgames in general.

Also, can a Burning Wish still pull cards from your main game's sideboard into the subgame? Is it still considered your sideboard in the subgame?

Once you finish the subgame, do those cards get shuffled into your library along with everything else in the main game?

And do the answers to these questions still apply if you start a subgame within a subgame?
