Corpse Dance


Buyback (You may pay an additional as you play this spell. If you do, put this card into your hand as it resolves.)

Return the top creature card of your graveyard to the battlefield. That creature gains haste until end of turn. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

OmicronPrime on Stacking/Resolving triggers entering combat? Brudiclad …

Scenario is this: Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer and Rionya, Fire Dancer are on the battefiled with Massacre Wurm in the bin. I enter combat and respond by casting Corpse Dance targeting Masscare Wurm. When Massacre Wurm enters and the -2/-2 etb goes on the stack am I able to respond to that by allowing the combat triggers to resolve prior to the -2/-2 etb so that the Rionya triggers and makes 2 copies of Massacre Wurm, putting 2x -2/-2 etbs on the stack, and then resolve Brudiclad's trigger to create a 2/1 Myr and have all my tokens become copies of Massacre Wurm and finally allow all the -2/-2 triggers resolve so that when something on my opponents board dies 4x Massacre Wurms see it for a total of 8 lost of life per creature? It's a wonky scenario and I'm not certain if I can control my creature's etb/combat triggers in this fashion. My immediate answer was "no", but just wanted to confirm.

Yes, you would keep the creature until the beginning of the next end step of the following turn, in your example, your turn.

The oracle text on Gatherer for Corpse Dance has been updated to say this: "Return the top creature card of your graveyard to the battlefield. That creature gains haste until end of turn. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step."

if I cast Corpse Dance on the end step before my turn, do I keep the creature until the end step of my turn? Thanks

Corpse Dance is my favorite graveyard card because it has smashing art, and also buyback to recast it. If you sac the creature before your end step, it doesn't get exiled. Personally, I'd probably run it over Unburial Rites since if you cast it with buyback, you're paying the same amount of mana, but you get to cast it unlimited times from your hand. (I just looked it up on scryfall and noticed its price has spiked since I first bought the card though, oof).

Leonin Relic-Warder combos infinitely with Animate Dead, but lore-wise I'm not sure it would fit into the Bram Stoker universe.

To make things even more muddy, you have cards like Corpse Dance where their card text reads end of turn but their oracle text reads end of next end step. Potentially showing that Wizards intended the terms to be interchangeable, at least on older cards.

Corpse Dance might be a good piece in here.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds Best way I can think of going infinite with Golgari land boi is having Aetherflux Reservoir , Disciple of Griselbrand , and Corpse Dance . The lowest life total you could start the combo at is 26 and still go infinite.

Some Commander Legends updates:

weezel, Maralen of the Mornsong going back in supported by Opposition Agent, still not going as far as Stranglehold but Aven Mindcensor also not bad with it.

uninvited, Spire of Industry finally in, added the Vault of Whispers and Ancient Den as well as the Mox Opal to support. Thrill of Possibility has been good too at getting Worldgorger Dragon or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of hand.

LordKunai, Leyline Tyrant just runs too slow, not going to commit him to the deck. Lion's Eye Diamond / Lurrus of the Dream-Den lines would be nice if you have a LED. Imperial Recruiter let's you really go for the Leonin Relic-Warder combo piece. If you want to go that route, I would remove the Worldgorger Dragon combo completely, and also include Recruiter of the Guard. I replaced Steelshaper's Gift with Open the Armory, wasn't a significant change. With it in though, I was thinking take Corpse Dance out since I have the extra Animate Dead tutor, which abandons the Dockside Extortionist / Corpse Dance line, which never happens anyway. WGD has T1 potentials (like my Buried Alive/Reanimate Line) but Bogardan Hellkite is SOOO bad, I was even thinking to try Omen of the Forge instead.

Need this card: Bogardan Drake, BR, Dragon, Flash, Flying, Haste 1/1. When Bogardan Drake enters the battlefield deal 1 damage to any target. Dash R or something lol to replace Bogardan Hellkite, there just isn't anything Flash/Instant in the game of magic.

I keep waffling on Plunge into Darkness, I think it helps more than hurts. I'm about 90% sure i'm going to take Angel of Despair or Corpse Dance to permanently add the tutor in.
