I love it! Have you thought of Arcbond, Delirium, Backlash, Traitor's Roar, Souls of the Faultless, or Boros Fury-Shield?

My favorite are the three that skip damage prevention and redirect instead. Thereby allowing your opponents to take lethal commander damage from their own commander. Although that is a rare occurrence unless you pump their creatures first. Reflect Damage, Mirror Strike & Glarecaster.

Some other interesting cards with similar effects Selfless Squire, Agonizing Demise, Shriveling Rot, Eye for an Eye & Harsh Justice.

I love these effects so much that the first deck I built ended up being split into 3. Each emphasizing different mechanics The bigger they are, the better they fall damage and spell doubling with Deflecting Palm, The Game of Houses (Daes Dae'mar) a more political redirection where I work on building up my opponents creatures and trying to take them out with commander damage from their own commanders, and a Stuffy creature based one with Feather at the helm which I just realized I never added to tapped out. Check them out if you'd like!

Is Glarecaster to expensive? Hactiavted ability)

Muglacious_NiceFaceToad on Cards that buff opponents creatures

1 year ago

Hello I am tuning my deck towards utilizing Backlash , Reflect Damage , Delirium , Mirror Strike , & Glarecaster . I am finding frequently that their creatures are not big enough and would like to find some cards to increase the power of my opponents creatures.

So far I have Hatred , Rush of Blood , Overblaze , and although Tainted Strike doesn't make them more powerful it can make them lethal for less. I was thinking Coat of Arms ?

I am avoiding the use of damage doublers as I have another deck which focuses on that. Overblaze is an exception.

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance! (I am currently slogging through the gatherer)

Orim's Chant classic isochron scepter piece. Glarecaster not only fogs but also redirects the damage back at another target. As far as I know, it will redirect all instances of simultaneous combat damage. This is a brilliant hidden gem.

That's true- I hadn't given much thought into how expensive the ability on Glarecaster is, just his personal casting cost. I think I'll drop him for the Vanquisher's Banner to offer me some more card draw, as well.

Yeah, I agree - this looks like a super fun thematic deck and like it also works :) nice one!

Definitely agreed with the land and mana-curve. 3.78 is a high average, and making land drops is so key. Another I'd consider removing for its cost is Glarecaster . It's fun as a bird tribal deterrent, but so pricey that I wonder how often it'll be holding you back from playing spells so it can remain a threat for the go around the table.

Nice work!

While I agree that you can't evaluate planeswalkers based on their ultimates, it is worth noting her ultimate costs 9, and her starting loyalty is 4--even with Doubling Season, you can't ultimate her on the first turn she is dropped.

Decent card, and will probably be pretty scary to play against in limited limited, but I'm not overly enthused. Granted, I really don't like planeswalkers as a card type, and will be the first to admit my bias taints my opinion.

dbpunk - it says "Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player." There are still some risks--if your opponent uses Glarecaster or the like on your creature they can force you to lose the game. But those kinds of effects are not commonly used.
