Glacial Chasm


Cumulative upkeep-Pay 2 life. (At the beginning of your upkeep, put an age counter on this permanent, then sacrifice it unless you pay its upkeep cost for each age counter on it.)

When Glacial Chasm enters the battlefield, sacrifice a land.

Creatures you control can't attack.

Prevent all damage that would be dealt to you.

Also there's a few lands that don't add mana that are particularly good like Maze of Ith and Glacial Chasm.

At the beginning of your upkeep everything that triggers at the beginning of your upkeep (including upkeep and cumulative upkeep triggers) will be put on the stack. There is a round of priority before each object on the stack resolves. So you can in fact make a copy before you have to pay the cumulative upkeep cost.

Just a side note in case you run into someone who wants to rules lawyer, you can not do anything between the counter going on and the cost needing paid. But placing the counter and paying the upkeep cost are part of the same ability. What you are actually doing is making a copy of the Glacial Chasm on your upkeep before the age counter is placed. The copy won't have been on the battlefield at the beginning of the upkeep, so it will not have a trigger to place a counter and pay until your next upkeep.

Say I have Glacial Chasm and Orvar, the All-Form in play, and the Chasm has two counters on it going into my upkeep. When my upkeep begins, the cumulative upkeep triggers and puts another counter on Glacial Chasm... do I then have the time to target it with an instant, making a copy of it, and then sacrifice it to the new Glacial Chasm, avoiding having to pay the cumulative upkeep or sacrifice it for not paying? Thanks in advance!

The updated wording on Glacial Chasm uses the wording "Prevent all damage that would be dealt to you." If you have a card that says "Damage can’t be prevented" like Everlasting Torment, damage will still be applied, not prevented. The general rule here is that "can't" takes precedence--effects that say you can't do something override effects that say you can or have to do something.

If I have a card that says Damage cannot be prevented and my opponent has Glacial Chasm out on the field does my damage go through to them?

thefiresoflurve, thank you very much! I could cut the deck down to 100 because of your helpful suggestions. I had Glacial Chasm as a way to stall to cast Crackle with Power by using the "mystic-top" combo to put a bunch of artifacts out to help pay and to find Crackle if I did not have it already. I will cut it because the deck focuses more on combat, and the chances of successfully doing that are slim. I had Clown Car in there because I thought it would be fun. Also, I could cast it for zero or potentially make an army of chumps, so maybe I could swap it occasionally for Ornithopter.

This looks really fun!

As far as cuts: I would honestly drop a lot of the control pieces. Magus of the Moon / Blood Moon hurt you just as much as your opponents due to having only 2 basic Forests.

Glacial Chasm doesn't particularly make sense in a deck where combat is a wincon. If you needed to stave off combat, I think board wipes would probably be more effective (Chain Reaction for instance).

Clown Car can get cut since it doesn't do a ton here. Ditto for Avarice Totem and Glaring Spotlight.

Temur Sabertooth is kind of mediocre unless you have really strong ETB effects and want the indestructible. Arcbound Crusher is also much worse than it looks - I ran it back in the day when I played kitchen table magic and it didn't particularly hold its own even there.

Hope those help you with cuts, GL HF!
