Crap, forgot to add these guys to the Control list:
Ethersworn Canonist to slow down your opponents
Grand Abolisher to stop them from slowing you down or sneak ahead themselves on your turn

BruhYouFarted on Lethal Vapors + Infinite Revive

1 month ago

Let's say I have Solemnity, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Grand Abolisher on the battlefield. Then I play Lethal Vapors, and then Storm Crow. Vapor trigger blows up the crow, which has a undying trigger, which gives another vapors trigger, destroying the crow. There is now a seemingly 'infinite loop' on the battlefield. My question follows. If you choose to not destroy Lethal Vapors (using it's ability) then is the game considered a draw when you could theoretically end the loop? Does the game force you to end the loop if possible, or is the fate of the game in your hands? This is more of a question about the 'loops drawing games' thing.

Foster_I_Am Just released the update, sorry for the lateness! I got caught up in school and work.

  • Hidden Stockpile is slow for token generation, but it does a good impression of Bitterblossom. As a sac outlet, it's inefficient since you have to pay mana. The real strength of the card is that it does both. Personally, I like my token-makers as death-triggers, and my sac-outlets as cheap creatures or artifacts that grant me mana. It's not a bad card though, so play it if you like it!
  • Tithe Taker: I'm more a fan of the mana utility provided by Carrier Thrall than the Grand Abolisher-lite effect from taker. If you find your playgroup constantly disrupting you on your turn, it could be worth it.
  • Bennie Bracks, Zoologist: He's great at 1-mana, but I think our current draw suite is stronger with a higher ceiling than 1-card per turn. And while we have token makers in the deck, we're not all in on a token strategy, so other decks have more to gain from his effect than we do.

Let me know what you think of the update and thanks for the suggestions!

kirbysan Black Market Connections is a super interesting card. It's definitely better than Phyrexian Arena which is its closest comparison at the moment. The versatility is strong since we can generate fodder, mana, or cards whenever we're lacking them. Making all 3 is a crazy strong option that can pull us ahead in the early game for 6-life per turn, which isn't the most when we have lots of lifegain potential in the deck. I'm pretty enthusiastic about this card right now, but I'm gonna sit on it for a bit until my next update when the full Baldur's Gate commander lists are released. Thanks for the suggestion!

Profet93 I Try to use it during the opponent's end Step before my turn. Mostly for Grand Abolisher and whatever piece I'm missing to go off. Most of the time it'sStoneforge Mystic.

It's funny you mention Grand Abolisher. That card has been in my binder forever. Maybe I should trade it for an Esper Sentinel. Drawing cards is more fun than stax.

A card I hated and rejoiced when it was banned was Golos, Tireless Pilgrim. Much of my hate stems from it ruining standard when it had been good, and one of my favorite standard decks was Orzhov Vampires in Core 2020 standard simply because I could wreck Golos/Field of the Dead decks right and left. I also feel like Golos was bad for commander, because there was little incentive to run other five color decks. Also, he has no real flavor. Urza, Lord High Artificer may be broken, but he has tons of flavor and it makes sense. Golos is basically the tin man from the wizard of Oz becoming some sort of god, like he replaced the wizard or something. If its going to be broken and warp the format at least it should be epic. At any rate, I'm a low ban kind of guy who wants them to unban more stuff, but Golos and Paradox Engine are the two bans that made me happy.

I was thinking about this a bit when I was looking at an older deck of mine and being like, well, Grand Abolisher would be the perfect card, but I can't bring myself to put it it. Maybe it's that the art doesn't appeal to me, or that it cuts out player's interaction (which is one of my favorite parts of the game) or maybe it's just the price tag combined with these other things : )

Either way, I was wondering if you all had anything similar in your play. Like, that card that is actually so good, but you don't play it out of, I don't know, out of sheer dislike.

I think we all have so many cards that we play just because we like them, but what's the other side of it? I'm interested : )
