Concentrate

Draw three cards.

TypicalTimmy on Should Green's Lifegain Rely Upon …

2 weeks ago

Well, Harmonize was the color-shift from Concentrate from Planer Chaos. Predator's Rapport would have been a better selection for your inquiry over Dawnglow Infusion, but seeing as both of these are among my favorite cards in the game, I'll forgive you <3

Really, Dawnglow Infusion is a bit of a bend for both colors, really. They both focus on creatures, not how much mana you can spend into something.

As for your actual question... what else would it be based around? Green is the big-stompy-boi color. Landfall could work, sure. Or perhaps "X life for each land" or something. But, realistically speaking, what else would you be looking toward? In a lot of ways, green and white are in the same boat here; Green focuses more so on large, singular creatures while white focuses on tokens. But at the end of the day, a creature is a creature.

I understand what you mean though. Black focuses on when creatures die is when you get life.

Red... kind of doesn't? Now that I think about it, nor does blue? Huh, neat.

I believe white also looks at enchantments to gain some life. I think, perhaps, a nice alternative for gaining life could be green looking at things such as total number of lands on the battlefield, revealing the top X cards and you get life equal to the highest power among creature cards revealed... things like that.

I really like the idea of non-combat infect!

    I think it'd be much better to have a Chandra's Ignition than the Vraska. The ultimate is a pretty cute win but it's unrealistic to think it'll ultimate often, if ever, and all it takes is your opponents destroying your creatures to null the ultimate. Her plus does not do enough and her minus takes away from the ultimate while being slow.

      Tezzeret's Gambit and Contentious Plan seem better than the sorcery card draw present (Read the Bones, Bitter Revelation, Concentrate), and any of the 3 mana X draw spells (like Commander's Insight, Blue Sun's Zenith) are going to be better than Mind Spring, with an interesting emphasis on Drown in Dreams since if you wanted you could mill yourself with Kess's ability to get back most anything you may want at some point. Might not be worth it like the other ones are, but definitely interesting.

      Blue is the best color for repeated drawing. White is the weakest. If you add the color that's best at something to a deck, the deck's going to do that thing better, especially if the base color comes up short in that area.

      I'm not trying to trivialize your point about drawing, and I think I understand your intent. But making a white card that can potentially Concentrate every time you attack is going to be a hard sell. If you cap it at two cards per attack step, that might work. It could even give you a little room to play with extra attacks.

      Putting an actual face on Muddstah's voice feels disconcerting after all these years of disembodied match naration. Onto his new Commander deck cards:

      Donal, Herald of Wings: The once-per-turn limitation can obviously be bypassed with flash support. No doubt there's some infinitive combo involving bouncing or copying Donal repeatedly in order to copy more than once a turn. Also, it's Donal, not Dolan

      Rhoda // Timin: Is that a kid ghost? Anyway, they feel overcosted to me, especially Timin. Is the comparsion to Topplegeist unfair? Dawnglare Invoker is fun here. Sadly, Authority of the Consuls and friends don't cause creatures to become tapped. Verity Circle is an obvious inclusion.

      Disorder in the Court: There's still a justice system during the end times?

      Sudden Salvation: Borderline insulting attempt at giving mono-white Concentrate

      TypicalTimmy on Card creation challenge

      If I recall, Planar Chaos had color-shifting cards as part of a "mechanic" or theme, yes? Take for example, Groundbreaker being the green version of Ball Lightning, Damnation being the black version of Wrath of God and Harmonize being the green version of Concentrate. Additionally there were Slivers, Echo, Suspend and a slurry of Dragons.


      M'Kkik, Brood-Waker

      Legendary Planeswalker - M'Kkik

      +2 Add two mana in any combination of one or more colors. Spend this mana only to cast Sliver spells.

      -7 Until end of turn, all Slivers have "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to an opponent, put a loyalty counter on M'Kkik, Brood-Waker."

      -15 Each opponent reveals their hand to you. Search each player's library, graveyard and exile zones. Put all Slivers from each of these zones onto the battlefield under your control, then gain control of all other Slivers.

      5


      So she starts off at 5 and upticks to 7. You could theoretically cast a second M'Kkik, but ideally you'd rather uptick her to 9, then -7 and try to hit her 15. It's a difficult and daunting play, but one that is well worth it.


      Make for me an Azorius Dragon who would be seen on Ravnica.

      TheVectornaut on Sorry, My Hands Are Full: Budget Card-Draw copy

      1 year ago

      Aside from the highly silver bullet Mirror Shield s, the card that immediately jumps out at me as being on the weak side is Concentrate . If you just need to draw more cards to take advantage of things like Psychosis Crawler and Chasm Skulker , I'd prefer a wheel effect like Windfall . I also agree that you could use more ways to stifle opponents. Voidmage Prodigy is another wizard and counter option that could fit right in here. I've had a reasonable amount of success with him in my Kanagawa's Revenge casual build with cheap expendable wizards. Baral, Chief of Compliance , Venser, Shaper Savant , and Vendilion Clique are other strong control tools at various budgets. Against friends running creatures that can stop countermagic, I'd consider keeping the Merfolk Trickster s here since they can potentially work around such a problem. An alternative plan could be to try and keep the board clear of threats long enough to win the game. Cyclonic Rift is the perfect card for such a role, but it is very costly. Maybe a Devastation Tide played after Brainstorm ing could be good enough. Or if you really want to bully your playgroup, Wash Out naming green is an option. As someone who suffered years of people naming green with Iona, Shield of Emeria against my mono-green commander decks, I recommend caution when employing color hosers.
