DemonDragonJ on Which Card is Best For …

5 months ago

I am planning to build a red/white/blue deck with Elsha of the Infinite as the general, which shall have a strong focus on instants and sorceries, so I naturally will wish for a way to copy such spells, and I need to decide between Double Vision , Swarm Intelligence , or Thousand-Year Storm as an enchantment that shall perform that function, so which card between those three does everyone recommend?

Double Vision has the lowest mana cost, but the other two trigger multiple times, so they are appealing in that regard, but they would also trigger if I cast a counterspell, which could work against me.

What does everyone else say about this? Which of those three cards would work best in an Elsha deck?

I love it! I've been trying to find a way to make a Bludgeon Brawl deck myself. I've settled on using Elsha of the Infinite to help me get all the artifacts out, but I didn't even think about Thrasios as another good option.

I have a beginner's question to ask. Why is Elsha of the Infinite 's ability better than casting from hand? And what are the benefits of having her as commander?

I mean if you want my advise, use Kykar, Wind's Fury or Elsha of the Infinite as your cmdr. These would give you a good platform to build from.

I do like some of the new cards in Commander 2021, but I am very displeased that nearly every reprinted card in that set has already been reprinted, before, and that no cards in the older border are being updated to the new border, thus far.

Excavation technique will be a great replacement for Bramblecrush in my Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis deck.

Monologue tax is less powerful than is Smothering Tithe , but it shall be great to have that redundancy.

Archaeomancer's map is an example of how card advantage works in white, and I am glad that WotC printed that card.

Veryan, voice of duality will be awesome for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am building, but, with so many awesome cards in this set, I worry that I will not be able to put every one of them in that deck.

Solve the equation is exactly the spell that I was seeking, and WotC printed it only shortly after I asked if such a card would ever exist; what an amazing coincidence! I wish that it was an instant, but it will still be perfect for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am currently building.

Revel in silence is very nasty, and this is a rare instance in which I am very glad that a spell exiles itself upon resolution, because it would be far too powerful, otherwise.

Codie, vociferous codex is a very fascinating card, so I will be very interested to see how players use it, in the future.

Magma opus and creative outburst are both very awesome, but they are too expensive for me to seriously consider using them.

Wandering archaic looks exactly like an eldrazi, so I wonder if it has any connection to those beings? It would be awesome for some of my decks, but there is no guarantee that my opponents will have instants and sorceries (although it is usually safe to presume that they shall).

Galazeth Prismari is actually rather subdued compared to many of the card in his school, but he (the name sounds masculine) still provides excellent support for certain strategies.

Tanazir Quandix is likewise rather modest, but still excellent as a support card for decks of the appropriate colors.

Coward_Token, I agree that it is ridiculous that blue continues to have such powerful creature removal when it is supposed to be the color that is worst at removing permanents (due to its ability to counter spells), so I hope that WotC soon realizes that and stops printing such cards.

I see that all of the campuses have the same activated ability, but I still say that 4 mana is too much to scry only a single card, especially when Crystal Ball can scry 2 cards for 1 mana.

Reconstruct history is very nice, although I personally feel that it should not have been able to return a planeswalker, as that makes it too powerful.

Potion of empowerment should have been a green/white hybrid card, because I feel that green alone should not have an effect such as that.

Why does blade historian grant double strike only to attacking creatures? Why is WotC making card that force players to attack, rather than both attack and defend?

Rip apart is not too bad, but the fact that it is merely a sorcery prevents it from being useful, so I shall keep Wear / Tear in my red/white decks, instead.

It seems that there shall be a cycle of campuses and pledgemages for each school, and, thus far, I am not impressed; Lorehold pledgemage could have been good if its ability increased its toughness in addition to its power. It is not yet known if all of the campuses shall have scry, but, if they do, 4 mana to scry one card is terrible, so I shall not be using them, in any of my decks.

Elite spellbinder is very nice, as it explores new design space for white while still feeling appropriate for that color, so I am very pleased by with it.

Venerable warsinger is awesome, so I do hope that I can put it into at least one of my decks.

Dueling coach is almost entirely worse than is Mikaeus, the Lunarch , so I will not even bother with it.

On returned pastcaller, why is the hybrid symbol between the two mono-colored symbols? Would it not make more sense for it to be after the colorless mana symbol?

Strict proctor is thankfully not as annoying as Hushwing Gryff or Hushbringer , but why is WotC printing so many cards that punish permanents with enter the battlefield abilities?

Efreet flamepainter will be amazing for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am building, so I shall definitely get a copy of it.

I shall presume that each school shall have an uncommon legendary creature, who shall be students who are the main characters of the story, and Quintorius is acceptable, but too narrow, in my mind.

Velomachus Lorehold, the founder of the Lorehold school, is as impressive as I would expect an elder dragon to be, so, perhaps, I may put him into one of my decks, but his high mana cost is unappealing.

Given that nearly every card that was revealed today was red/white, is it now safe to presume that each day this week shall feature cards from one specific school?
