Creature — Illusion


Vanishing 3 (This permanent enters the battlefield with three time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter from it. When the last is removed, sacrifice it.)

When Chronozoa is put into a graveyard from play, if it had no time counters on it, put two tokens into play that are copies of it.

1empyrean on Cards that benefit from Solemnity

I'm assuming the vanishing cards you've found to use are Out of Time, Chronozoa, and Lost Auramancers?

suarkdivad I thought about adding Sphinx of the Second Sun but I realized Paradox Haze only triggers on the first upkeep so it would effectively be 8 mana for only one extra upkeep.

the clone effects (for creatures) are intended for zur so that I can get multiple enchantments per turn. They are also great with Chronozoa , Herald of Leshrac or Mirror-Sigil Sergeant .

Caerwyn on Creatures that ETB with counters …

8 months ago

I ran a quick Gatherer search for ["enters the battlefield" + "counter" + "NOT +1/+1" + "NOT Energy" + "Creature"] and skimmed through it. The search was a bit over-inclusive, but was short enough to quickly read.

You can run that search to get more options, but I pulled out some notable choices--the below creatures have abilities above and beyond simply being "Vanilla/French vanilla with an ETB downside" (no other abilities, or just an evergreen ability).

  1. Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle
  2. Chronozoa - used with Solemnity and a sacrifice engine, you can build an infinite army of these guys (or just win outright if your sacrifice engine hurts opponents).
  3. Look into creatures with Persist, such as Kitchen Finks or Murderous Redcap . Combined with a sacrifice engine and Solemnity/ Melira, Sylvok Outcast , you'll be able to go infinite.
  4. Lost Auramancers can find you Solemnity, so you can get extra bang for your Vampire Hexmage buck if you target Auramancers.

Otherwise, you're mostly looking at creatures that enter the battlefield smaller and grow bigger.

Thanks for the suggestions, but both the Bubble and Chasm were originally in this deck and cut. Chasm because it neuters Zur, and the Bubble was cut in favor of things I could fetch with Zur.

I have never seen Chronozoa before, and while I won't include it hear, I can definitely see using it in some other decks.

A couple other cards that are fun with Solemnity: Force Bubble, Glacial Chasm, Chronozoa. The Chasm requires strategy, and the Chronozoa requires a sac outlet, but the bubble is just straight up damage prevention.

Fateful Die

Legendary Artifact

Roll a six-sized die. You gain the following effect based on the number rolled:

1: Add to your mana pool. This can only be used to cast colorless spells or the ability of a colorless permanent.

2: Sacrifice a creature. You lose life equal to its toughness. If it is a black creature, instead draw cards equal to its power.

3: Create a 2/2 white bird with flying.

4: Target creature gets +2/+0 and trample until end of turn. If it is green, it fights target creature you don’t control.

5: Add to your mana pool. You lose half your life rounded down and target opponent gains half their life rounded up.

6: Exile ~ and all non creature, nonland permanents.

I hope that works.

Create a legendary illusion with phasing. Maybe have it act similar to Chronozoa if you’d like.

This is a great list of cards! I too have been exploring this theme in a Commander deck. Check out my deck list Karona Virus OFFICIAL for more card ideas. I'm using Chronozoa and Karona, False God to represent the virus itself.

Well, I personally believe that Goblin Sharpshooter is the timmiest timmy that ever timmed, and nothing could ever really out-tim that, but here's a shot...

Resurgent Alchemist

Creature - Human Wizard

~ doesn't untap during your untap step

Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, untap ~

: ~ deals 1 damage to any target


I also had a ninja'd response to the previous challenge:

Sower of Disbelief

Creature - Human

Permanents your opponents control do not count towards devotion to any color

All gods in play get -x/-x, where x is half your devotion to black, rounded down

Hosing the gods with that one.

I'd like a zombie that propagates, the way that Chronozoa does. Not necessarily with fading, though that would work too.
