Rebounding Spellburn

Sorcery

If Rebounding Spellburn would be cast or copied by a player who isn't its owner, it deals 3 damage to its caster/controller.

Draw a card for each copy of Rebounding Spellburn.

Rebound (If you cast this spell from your hand, exile it as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast this card from exile without paying its mana cost.)


Few rules reminders: copies are not rebounded; only the original. So what would you do with this card outside of Hive Mind ? I think it could easily fit in a Storm deck ( Thousand-Year Storm comes to mind), as well as spells like Doublecast and Bonus Round and permanents like Chandra, Pyromaster and Cloven Casting .

The first line of text really is for Hive Mind and spells that your opponent plays that would make them either copy or cast spells of yours. ( Curse of Echoes could be fun)

The card itself does nothing if it is not copied or stolen. But if it is copied even once, it grows exponentially: one copy means that the original draws you 1 card and the new copy draws you 1 card. Two copies means that the original draws you two cards, the first copy draws you two cards, and the second copy draws you two cards (six cards!). Echo Mage wants you to play this.

Wildcard!

I like the theme of this, would you consider cards that can copy themselves and have the words “Cast the copy”?

From reading the text on the commander I think that would trigger her twice,

For example:

AEthertow or other cards with conspire and/or storm and replicate.

Gigadrowse

Shattering Spree

Chandra, Pyromaster ultimate allows you to cast copies.

Finale of Promise

You could also use cards with the cipher mechanic, Hidden Strings .

Cloven Casting

Swarm Intelligence

Thousand-Year Storm

Just a few ideas :)

Aceh Thanks for the suggestions!!

Cloven Casting is outclassed by Swarm Intelligence in this deck since it copies everything, not just multicolor, and I'm not sure what to cut for another big silly enchantment.

I think the triple blue for Cast Through Time and it being 7cmc is a little too restrictive for this deck. Still a super cool effect though.

Ral, Storm Conduit and Narset Transcendent both seem really good for the deck. I'll try to find some spots for them and maybe 1-2 other planeswalkers.

A spell to enable Unstoppable:

Rannon's Experiment

Enchantment

Whenever you cast a spell, you may pay . If you do, counter that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

Unstoppable - If Rannon's Experiment is countered, or would be destroyed, exile it. At the start of your next upkeep, put it onto the battlefield.


Inspired by Cloven Casting

More unstoppable, very cool mechanic
