Damia, Sage of Stone Discussion

Clockzarb on If a creature enter the …

I have Call to the Kindred on the battlefield attached to a wizard creature.

During my upkeep, Call to the Kindred triggers and I find a Damia, Sage of Stone and put it into play.

Does Damia, Sage of Stone 's ability triggers, since I'm still during my upkeep ?

thank you. To answer your question: I might honestly just put Fynn in the 99 of some deck that runs deathtouch creatures instead, I'm thinking Jorn, God of Winter  Flip. I actually forgot to make the fynn deck hidden. If you are looking for infect, I suggest going Simic, Golgari or even Sultai. if you go Sultai and Don't want to go Voltron, you could go for Damia, Sage of Stone . just know, if you play infect, they will try to kill you first, which is why I personally don't have one myself. Seton druid tribal is one of my favorite decks along with my The Locust God deck and Edgar Markov . Winota, Joiner of Forces can also be really busted. I love that one too. the next deck I plan to do is Lathril, Blade of the Elves , I've already bought the precon and I am gonna test it out to see what works and what doesn't and upgrade accordingly. oh and in case you were wondering, other good infect commanders are the following: Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Volrath, the Shapestealer . Ezuri can make your Blighted Agent huge and kill someone with 1 or 2 hits by putting counters on it. in that deck you run all the blue and green infect creatures, scryfall is your friend. with Volrath, you want to be playing Evasive infect creatures that you then put a counter on a turn Volrath into, so again Blighted Agent is a very good card there. same with Phyrexian Crusader and Plague Stinger . The reason I broght up Damia, Sage of Stone is that she's just a really good value commander in sultai colors, she draws you cards, the other 2 kill faster.

I'd love to know more what you see the lane of the deck to be. That would help provide more strategic recommendations. Looking at the list, I see a lot of 'good stuff' cards, but not always seeing how they all are intended to work together. That could just be me. There is the Laboratory Maniac and you do have a few ways to increase or multiple your draws...

While I'm not recommending specific ones of these cards, I see Damia, Sage of Stone and try to build around with cards that are impacted by the number of cards in your hand and building that number up. In my own build once upon a time, I aimed to draw more where I could and hold onto those cards. You have a Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower, but also having a free Spellbook might be in order.

I see the snow-covered lands, but not much interaction with them. A Scrying Sheets or Sunstone seem in order.

There are many ways to be a little hand hate bear if you want. Noetic Scales can be fun in this way or Locust Miser. Narset, Parter of Veils plays in well to this too.

As far as cards in your hand interaction, I'll throw out a bunch, but with no particular synergy in mind aside from cards in hand. You might have enough green for Phosphorescent Feast. If your constantly overfilling your hand, Scroll Rack would give you some major filtering. Credit Voucher also does this, but isn't repeatable. Jushi Apprentice  Flip is one way you can overfill your hand in Damia. Sea Gate Restoration  Flip can come in as an untapped land, but if you are rolling in mana, it can fill that hand even more. You are also ramping really hard and just one of the draw X spells probably has a place here. There are, of course, a number of cards that have power/toughness equal to your cards in hand if you wanted to go that route. Ominous Seas is a card you'll trigger a lot in Damia.

No Cyclonic Rift? Some form of graveyard hate is probably warranted, even if just, especially dropping a swamp for Bojuka Bog. You've got 3 sorcery tutors, but I'd slot one out for Vampiric Tutor.

I've been thinking about rebuilding Damia myself as mill deck now that there is so much more support for it.

Im super excited for Archelos, Lagoon Mystic! Hes gonna replace Damia, Sage of Stone in my sultai deck. I rarely cast Damia anyways, and this little turtle dude seems quite useful :). Also Opposition Agent ofcourse. I already got my Maralen of the Mornsong :)

enpc on Isochron scepter and dramatic reversal …

5 months ago

Monomanamaniac: Unfortunately because you are casting spells, it does mean that dramatic scepter is suseptible to both ability hate but also storm hate, which has gotten me a few times before. But in a vacuum, it's one of the more compact combos.

I think the thing which makes it so strong is that it's such a low cost to entry on the combo - you only need 4 mana available to play and activate scepter which is super low. I used to run Tooth and Nail for Deadeye Navigator / Palinchron (with a bit of Rune-Scarred Demon enabling) in a Damia, Sage of Stone list which was good, but you always had to generate so much mana to so you could combo out with counterspell backup. With Scepter, a Mana Vault or Grim Monolith basically pays for the combo by itself and makes you mana positive.

The other thing I like with the combo is that there are replaceable pieces for it. I run the combo in my Thrasios, Triton Hero deck (alsongside Tymna) and I have Sigil Tracer who with Thrasios lets you copy Reversal on the stack. You can also use Nivix Guildmage or Izzet Guildmage in this role. But I was even toying with hte idea of using Isochron Scepter + Vitalize + Karn, Silver Golem as a janky combo in Selvala, Explorer Returned. I know it's not a great combo but it shows how you can adapt it so easily.

for Damia, Sage of Stone:

Vintara Mulcher

Creature - Human

Discard a land card: Add .


This would help you ramp into her as well as give you a way to empty your hand. Also would work with many land strategies, but yeah.

I'd like to see a common which would be mediocre in limited, but busted in another format. but still a common.
