Polaris on How many creatures die in …

Assuming that's all of your permanents, all of them. You start with Faeburrow Elder at 7/7, Chromanticore at 9/9, Grixis Grimblade at 6/5, and Knight of New Alara at 2/2.

Storm's Wrath resolves and deals 4 to all of them. Knight of New Alara dies. Without the buff, Elder is a 5/5, Chromanticore is 4/4, and Grimblade is a 3/2, so the last two die. With both of them gone, Elder is now a 2/2 and dies.

I have a Faeburrow Elder and a Chromanticore and Grixis Grimblade and Knight of New Alara on my side of the battlefield. My Opponent casts Storm's Wrath. Which of my creatures die?

zapyourtumor - He didn't play it, but no reason you can't. This list is as close that I have found to my friend's list.

My friend did not play Beastcaller Savant , Chromanticore , nor Witchstalker , but everything else is fairly close. I've seen lists that play Nightveil Specter and Chromanticore and I feel like that's a pretty cool idea. Playtest everything and see what you like. If you put it up here on tappedout tag me in it and I'll take a look. Oh, my friend did play Questing Beast and Carnage Tyrant as a beat face plan B.

zapyourtumor don't even get me started on that bullshit. I can go all day about Simian Spirit Guide when they banned the reason it become busted, Tibalt's Trickery . #FREETHEMONKEY!

My friend's list usually had one or two because he played dorks like Sylvan Caryatid for the hexproof for Soulflayer or just to try and get it out faster. However, I do like the thought of Angrath's Rampage . It's in a binder as a potential for the deck (and because I found it in Japanese).

I'll try to send the list when I can communicate with my friend but his list was something like this:

4x Soulflayer 4x Zetalpa, Primal Dawn 4x Banehound 4x Sylvan Caryatid 4x Lotleth Troll

3x Grapple with the Past 4x Grisly Salvage

Plus whatever lands and potential removal. I've seen lists online playing stuff like Chromanticore but he didn't play any red cards.

My enchantment deck was a 5-color deck, houseruled to be led by Genju of the Realm , then Chromanticore . Then, as of our second visit to Theros, I felt I had enough gas to cut the red and black and run Tuvasa the Sunlit .

My temur token clone deck used to be Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer , added green with Tana, the Bloodsower + Thrasios, Triton Hero , changed to Riku of Two Reflections after I got tired of Thrasios' shenanigans, switched to Tana, the Bloodsower + Sakashima of a Thousand Faces after getting annoyed with Riku, did a stint as Esix, Fractal Bloom , and then I realized I live for the stupid stuff red adds to the deck that I went back to Tana + Sakashima.

Chromanticore is one 5C creature that I wish was "technically" Command Zone legal, because I would love to make a 5-color enchantment deck much like this one. Great concept!

kpres on Niv-Mizzet Reborn for Voltron

I think you have way too many instants for a deck that doesn't get some kind of synergy from playing those types of cards. Maybe you want more cards that flicker Niv Mizzet to get more ETB effects, but then you wouldn't want the Voltron cards.

Consider Chromanticore for the 5C voltron bestow.

I really like how you included some of those 2 color auras from Eventide/Shadowmoor. It would be so cool to see all of them in this deck, but I suppose you only chose the best ones to protect Niv Mizzet. Here they all are:

I have a 5C Niv Mizzet deck, too, but the theme is "5 color". I have found that it's really great to round out the whole 2 color pair experience by throwing in lots of 5C cards. A card with five colours can be any of the colour pairs, your choice.

The borderposts are a great way to add more colour pairs among mana rocks, but you would need to throw in some basic lands to be able to use their first ability. Otherwise, they are terrible cards.
