Cursed Mirror would potentially be great for getting another round of Goads by copying your commander.

Chaospyke on Can a Clone entering as …

My Friend wanted cast Sculpting Steel having it enter as a copy of Cursed Mirror and then wanted it to use Cursed Mirror's ability to enter as a copy of Steel Hellkite. Is this a legal play?

Wandering Archaic  Flip would be a good add, unless you have bonkers life gain, Angel of Destiny may not be all that good. Starnheim Aspirant: I can see being kind of funny for a T3 or T4 Aurelia, I feel like a lot of times it might not be all that great, it would be nice if the card had other things going for it. Tome of Legends: there are more consistent draw sources like Endless Atlas. I would say you would be better served by adding Esper Sentinel, Dockside Extortionist and Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer to speed the list up and give it some extra ramp and draw. Cursed Mirror could be fun and I have gotten a lot of use out of Archaeomancer's Map, though with Keeper of the Accord and Land Tax you may have enough.

Crow-Umbra on Prosper: Having a good Tome

Nice deck! I do like the differences you have here compared to my list, notably:

  • Dockside Extortionist Hard to beat it at Treasure production. I'll likely move my one copy from Vadrok to Prosper if I retire that list, or maybe just proxy a second copy lol.

  • The tutor package is great and something I'm hoping to upgrade towards myself, save for probably Imperial Seal lol.

  • I might have to playtest Pain Magnification . Even if I'm not the one dealing the damage, I do have a Yurlok of Scorch Thrash deck in my meta, as well as other similar group-slug effects.

There are some cards you picked that I'm personally kinda iffy on. If these are meta decisions, or you've had consistent success with them, then feel free to disregard:

  • Wild-Magic Sorcerer I just took mine out of my list. For me, I felt like it whiffed each time in play-testing, and I'd usually cascade into something I wouldn't want to play then.

  • Unstable Obelisk It's kind of in this awkward spot where it's slow and clunky for all the things it wants to do. I'm generally not a fan of 3MV mana rocks, except for Cursed Mirror . The removal portion of Obelisk is also fairly steep and very telegraphed. Depending on the permanent type you would want to remove with Obelisk, there are other options like Feed the Swarm or Field of Ruin

  • Similarly, I'm feeling iffy on Transmogrifying Wand . The removal is telegraphed, it removes a maximum of 3 targets at sorcery speed, and you can only remove one target per turn with it. I think Fire Covenant could be better in this slot since it can hit multiple targets at instant speed. I see you're already running Toxic Deluge, but Dead of Winter could essentially give you 2 Toxic Deluges, since you are running all Snow Basics.

  • I think Sensei's Divining Top is an all-star in Prosper and is worth a slot. Since you have plenty of fast mana rocks, maybe you could cut one of the other rocks of your choice? If your meta is that fast that all your rocks are needed, or you don't need the top deck manipulation/draw, then feel free to disregard.

McToters on Hyper Markov

Hey there! I love your unique take on this deck (not sure if there are other Hyper Markov decks out there)! What I notice is that this really plays as a mono black deck barely splashing red and white, which is not a good or bad thing, just different. I am not a big Mardu player or all that familiar with vampires but I’ll do my best to give you some good feedback.

Any heavy creature based decks usually sit comfortably at anywhere between 25-35 creatures slots. Being that your deck is “hyper” in this regard makes sense you are running a lot more—plus as you say the deck runs well, so hard to argue with that. My instinctual feedback here is that you could probably cut down your creatures to 40-45 and still get the effects you want (maybe you’ve already tried this).

You also already have some of the recs I’d give you like Cathars' Crusade and Anointed Procession in your maybeboatd. I think you should 100% include the latter. Because you generate a ton of tokens, Settle the Wreckage would double as unexpected ramp and in crucial times a one-sided board wipe. It does have 2 white in its cmc so probably not for you.

Someone just told me to take out this card from my Pirates deck (and use Shared Animosity ) but it is usually used as a finisher. That card is Kindred Charge . Again 2 red in its cmc and double the cost of Shared but it triggers ETBs.

Maybe Cursed Mirror ? Seems like a good fit, pretty flexible and a nice flavor add.

Chance for Glory , Savage Beating , and Reconnaissance all seem random but could fit into a creature-focused deck.

That’s all I have at the moment, but I hope that helps a little! Again, this is a great brew. Cheers!

AShadyZebra It depends on what you're trying to do (card draw?), but I would probably pick Conjurer's Bauble , because both of it's effects seem useful and you don't have to pay/ sac to draw a card. With Chromatic Star I don't see the filter effect ever being useful and in order to draw a card you would need a sac outlet. I really like Lithoform Engine and Forsaken Monument , but the thing that steers me away from both is the fact that they're legendary, which is somewhat of a nonbo with Osgir. They're both really good cards with powerful effects, but for what I would use them for in my own deck, I feel like there are better more cost efficient alternatives.

You do make a good point about Cursed Mirror though, I may have to take another look at that one.

Suns_Champion I actually didn't realize Zirda, the Dawnwaker could reduce equip costs, and hadn't really thought about her reducing any other abilities other than Osgir's, so thank you for pointing that out. Even though Platinum Angel / Platinum Emperion are a ton of fun to play in the deck, I would probably have to agree they're pretty cheeky.

Between the two of you I think you've convinced me to swap Platinum Emperion for Zirda, the Dawnwaker . The more I think about it, the more obvious it becomes that Zirda, the Dawnwaker should be in the deck, and is far superior to Platinum Emperion for a number of reasons.

Thank you both for the continued discussion and suggestions. Much appreciated.
