Ethereal Forager Discussion

Yesterday on Can a copied Ethereal Forager …

Polaris, side note, Ethereal Forager has linked abilities. Its triggered ability which returns cards from exile can only return cards that it exiled with its prior ability printed on the Forager that exiles cards. Exiling an instant or sorcery card with a creature's ability, then turning that creature into a copy of Ethereal Forager, (disappointingly) won't allow you to use the Forager's triggered ability to return that exiled instant or sorcery card to your hand.

No. When a card uses its name, it means "this object." Flickering Ethereal Forager will make it a new permanent, unlinked with the cards exiled when it was originally cast. The same applies if you cast another Ethereal Forager; each will have its own stack of cards it can return from, and they aren't shared. A card or token that's a copy of Ethereal Forager won't have any exiled cards to draw from at all, unless it had some other ability that exiled something (for example, if you turned a Living Lore or Izzet Chemister into a copy of Ethereal Forager after exiling an instant or sorcery with it).

Cards that bypass this restriction, such as Karn, Scion of Urza or Haldan, Avid Arcanist , will use some other way to keep track of what cards they're allowed to use.

Ethereal Forager has delve and when it attacks it allows you to return a card exiled with Ethereal Forager to your hand. If you play another Ethereal Forager or copy the original, can you return spells exiled with the first with the second? Does the same answer hold true if you flicker an Ethereal Forager, can you still return the spells you exiled when you cast it?

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:

Hey, good budget version of Talrand, nice Consecrated Sphinx.

Budget cards to consider adding:

Peregrine + Displace + Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall makes infinite blue mana from blinking Peregrine and infinite casts of Displace which equals infinite 2/2 Drakes from Talrand. Displace is an instant meaning can do this combo on an opponents turn and then attack with infinite Drakes on your turn.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.
