Fractured Loyalty Discussion

Twinflame is nice for either cheaply reusing the ETB effect of a costlier creature, or looping it with Anarchist + striving it to continually reuse an ETB effect. Priest of Urabrask + Cloudstone Curio + anything that reduces the priest's cost (Ruby Medallion) or doubles its effect (Panharmonicon) nets you extra mana and extra triggers on things like Impact Tremors. The Priest can even provide infinite mana in the right setup.

Embermaw Hellion makes your enchantments hit harder. Fractured Loyalty on second glance is too situational here since you don't have that many effects that target things. Umbilicus and Blood Clock are not stars by any means, but they do allow you to reuse ETB creatures. Indomitable Creativity seems great if you have a lot of tokens out, and can act as removal as well.

Just thought of a few more that might interest you: Commune with Lava , Flameshadow Conjuring , Minion Reflector , Feldon of the Third Path , Sandstone Oracle , Skirk Prospector

king-saproling Great suggestions!

I haven't tested out Sculpting Steel or Grinning Ignus , but I'm interested in it - looks like they could make the cut but I want to see how they do! I'll test them out.

I don't think I have quite enough flicker effects to make Priest of Urabrask , Anarchist , Meteor Golem , or Knollspine Dragon worth it. The latter 3 are also pretty expensive, how have they performed for you?

In what situations do you usually use Twinflame ? With our eternal struggle for card advantage, I'm not sure if it would be worth the draw usually.

I'm not sure quite how synergistic Embermaw Hellion , Fractured Loyalty , Umbilicus , Indomitable Creativity , or Blood Clock are. Maybe I'm missing it - have any of them been stars for you?

StopShot on Midrange Burn Cards

My favorite creature burn card of all time is Lightning Axe . I love it so much that it's almost something like a pet card, but it doesn't quite reach your 6-to-8 damage mark. (May I ask what has 8 toughness that you need to remove so much?)

Boros Reckoner is another option. Anything that hits him he can have that damage thrown back at it. Think of it as red-deathtouch, but you can also sling that damage at your opponents as well.

Fractured Loyalty , that way if you waste a weak spell on the tanky creature, not only do you remove it, but you also get a free-tanky creature.

Inner Struggle also works as well. If the creature has equal or greater power than it's toughness this will remove anything. Justice Strike is better if you're splashing white though.

Indomitable Creativity can remove anything if you're feeling lucky. You can also use it on your weak creatures in hopes of pulling better ones.

Transmogrifying Wand makes big creatures a lot less threatening.

This is a surprisingly decent list- but the big thing for budget lists at FNM- SIDEBOARD.

You don't have to grab staple sideboard tools- the more budget your list, the more powerful a transformative sideboard becomes. Changing from red devotion where you want Leyline of Sanctity asap to a Raid Bombardment/Mogg War Marshal tokens list is very powerful, and the flexibility of just saying 'oh, I'll run these 15 cards instead of (all my spells, all my creatures, half of each) is strong.

It also lets you plan out sideboard tools so that some can sit mainboard- Ash Zealot and Harsh Mentor provide seven slots mainboard that can be smoothly swapped for more spells, more creatures, different hate depending on what you need, and planning that out can have immense benifits.

There are lots of options- and finding cards that can flex into a second list with 15 swaps is suprisingly a lot simpler than it seems- just look for cards that are hit hard by spells your opponent will sideboard out so you can swap them in. eg; they ditch their high CMC answers/enchantment removal for more road blocks while you swap to a Goblin Assault/Curse of Stalked Prey list.

Cards to look at - Satyr Hoplite Firebrand Archer, Five-Alarm Fire, Foundry Street Denizen, Fractured Loyalty, Markov Blademaster etc.

Good luck, and happy brewing.

Kogarashi on card:Fractured Loyalty ruling

When you cast Swords to Plowshares targeting the bear, you trigger Fractured Loyalty. That goes on the stack above your Swords, and resolves first, giving you control of the bear.

However, since Swords to Plowshares doesn't specify that it must be a creature your opponent controls, and the bear hasn't become a new object as it hasn't changed zones, it's still a valid target. It will be exiled once Swords resolves, and because you are now its controller, you will gain life equal to its power.
