Azeworai on Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Commander

5 months ago

Ah, I had long-tinkered with an Alesha list for quite the meiny of months, whereupon I have a fair number of suggestions for consideration in your ranks.

Meseems Callous Bloodmage is one of the best cards in the new set for inclusion, as it does three relevant things for any given circumstance. Choose wisely.

Any aristocrats list is incomplete when bereft of Skullclamp . Overplayed? Overrated? Too powerful? Is it too efficient? Perhaps you are tired of acknowledging its existence? Is this jest overlong all for the sake of an ensuing sentence? No, no, yes, maybe, and yes. (Just play it.)

Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is a particular powerhouse. He does everything. Maugre the cost of one life, he enables a draw engine and sacrifice outlet. So much for so little.

False Prophet is a most splendid wrath, for, ere his calamitous demise trigger, you may sacrifice your board and ravage all others.

Feldon of the Third Path , however sorrowful his tale, is quite the potent artificer. Bringing back many and wreaking havoc upon all is a brutal combination that can act as a backup version of the commander.

Rummaging effects are perhaps something of which I am too fond, yet here we are. Rummaging Goblin , Anje Falkenrath , Plargg, Dean of Chaos  Flip, Deal Broker , Smuggler's Copter , and Mad Prophet are all ones I would seek to add.

I much enjoy Painful Truths in any multi-coloured Black deck. Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper are equally enjoyable.

Retribution of the Meek is a splendid wrath, typically decimating the opponents' populous.

There are also the intrinsic staples that I may as well proffer by name: Blood Artist , Swords to Plowshares , Despark , Anguished Unmaking , Vindicate , Path to Exile , and Fellwar Stone .

Thus is all, dear folk. But, might all of your foes be met with a despairing shriek as Karmic Guide has her fun casting demise.

Lastly, the deck name could use a little work. Yes, it may be forthright, but, opt for something with flare. Let it be histrionic! Brutal! WONDERFUL!

Thence I leave.

Here is my own list, if you deign to care: Quondam Foes

People always play Exploration but always forget about Skyshroud Ranger, Sakura-Tribe Scout, and Llanowar Scout.

False Prophet is a super political boardwipe. If people aren't swinging at you, theire helping you win. If they're attacking you, block with this.

Ashes to Ashes is very nice

Quicksilver Fountain ROCKS in mono blue

Spy Network gives you an insane amount of info, same with Telepathy

Daring Apprentice is very nice to just have out.

Anthon, False Hero

Legendary Creature - Human

~ enters the battlefield with 3 Follower Counters. If ~ would lose all Follower Counters, sacrifice all creatures you control.

Add a Follower Counter to ~: You gain 3 life.

Take two Follower Counters from ~: Sacrifice a creature. Then place target creature card from your graveyard onto the battlefield.

Take seven Follower Counters off of ~: You gain 5 life and draw two cards. Then exile all nonland permanents.

1/3

Kind of along the lines of False Prophet. Meant to be like he's pretending to be a planeswalker, hence the "Follower Counters." Wildcard.

MTGconstructor on How to Get Kicked out of Your Playgroup

SwiftDeath, Thanks for the comment! And hopefully it brought some nostalgia. I would agree that a sac outlet is insanely important in any graveyard based deck. False Prophet seems to risky for my blood. If he is on the battlefield and I don't have any immediate free way of sacrificing him, then I've done more harm to me then my opponent. As for Oblivion Stone, that does seem like a great combo, I will consider it.

SwiftDeath on How to Get Kicked out of Your Playgroup

This is very reminiscent of my Karador deck back when I first built mine. A lot of cards have been released since then but it shares a lot of similarities. One thing that Karador decks need is self sacrifice. It allows you to dodge exile removal from your opponents to instead fill the grave with more creatures. Nothing will annoy your opponent more then having to use their Swords on a creature they know will not get exiled. A card that I used with this in mind and to great effect was False Prophet. I can sac all my creatures then sac false prophet. Remove from game all my opponents creatures then cast something like Living Death and get them all back. I could also use my commander or a number of different methods. My deck was more of an attrition deck. I didn't have to play big creatures, except the ones that mattered, or try to combo as early as possible. I only had to outlast my opponent. If I did that they could never recover faster than me. Also Oblivion Stone is a disgusting lock with Sun Titan. It blows up your board too but again you should be able to recover faster than other players.

For anyone who may wonder about the answer, False Prophet must go to the graveyard from the battlefield for its ability to trigger. It will not trigger if the Prophet is put into the graveyard from any other zone, including the stack.

Hi everyone,

I'm curious to know if False Prophet's ability still happens even if he was countered on the stack and then went to the graveyard?

Thanks a ton!
