Maru, Blades of Sand

Legendary Creature - Human Sand Warrior


, : Reveal the top card of your library. You may exile it. If you do, Maru gets +3/+0 until end of turn. Otherwise draw it and Maru gets +0/+3 until end of turn. If the card is exiled, you may play it until end of turn and spend any color mana when casting it.


Call this set: "Amonkhet: Judgement" (AKJ)

The idea is Hazoret, now able to freely traverse the multiverse, has sought out planes with other gods in an effort to ask them to restore her world.

Most Gods ignored her pleas.

Some Gods fell on emotion and agreed. Gods such as Karametra, God of Harvests and Athreos, God of Passage who agreed to make Amonkhet flourish with life and end the damning of the bodies in the sands. And Halvar, God of Battle  Flip who was enthralled by the stories of the Trials and wants to rebuild and train a new breed of warriors.

But, one God in particular saw an opportunity to seize a new world for subjugation, and brought with them Gods who seek destruction and dominion.

In this Amonkhet set, Gods from across the multiverse inhabit this one world, with one God leading the cause for their own destructive purposes.

Create that new God.

Swebb87 on MDFC graveyard Interaction with quintorius, …

If i have Halvar, God of Battle  Flip in the graveyard, can I target the Sword of the Realms  Flip side of it with Quintorius, Loremaster as a non creature, non land card? I know some effects allow for the land (back side) MDFCs to be played from graveyards but wasn't sure if quintorius would only see the halvar side of the card??

LTB triggers (including "dies" triggers) check the existence of objects right before the triggering event happens. So what Liesa, Forgotten Archangel sees for the purposes of triggering is that an artifact was put into the graveyard. For the same reason something like Disciple of the Vault would trigger when Sword of the Realms  Flip is put into a graveyard, despite it being Halvar, God of Battle  Flip the entire time the card exists in the graveyard.

603.10. Normally, objects that exist immediately after an event are checked to see if the event matched any trigger conditions, and continuous effects that exist at that time are used to determine what the trigger conditions are and what the objects involved in the event look like. However, some triggered abilities are exceptions to this rule; the game “looks back in time” to determine if those abilities trigger, using the existence of those abilities and the appearance of objects immediately prior to the event. The list of exceptions is as follows:

603.10a Some zone-change triggers look back in time. These are leaves-the-battlefield abilities, abilities that trigger when a card leaves a graveyard, and abilities that trigger when an object that all players can see is put into a hand or library.

I probably can answer this to myself, but I need to make sure.

When Sword of the Realms  Flip is out into a graveyard, it becomes the creature Halvar, God of Battle  Flip again, since that is the face side of the MDFC card.

Since it was an artifact when put into a graveyard, it did not die and therefore Halvar will not be returned with Liesa, Forgotten Archangel, is that correct?

Oi! Nice Commander pick, Mardu Knights are my jam.

If you're trying to give the decks some legs via recursion, Reanimator is the only way to go imho. Fortunately & are the perfect colors for that! Here's the Reanimator package that I typically start with if I'm building a deck in that style:

Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, Reanimate, Entomb, Buried Alive, Final Parting, Phyrexian Reclamation & Sevinne's Reclamation are sick. There are also some pretty spicy loops that can be accomplished with things like Corpse Dance & Dread Return, but we can get into all of that if you decide to run Reanimator as a strategy for this build.

There's also some pretty great card draw options in this color combination that I think will do the deck some good. Necropotence, Black Market Connections, Esper Sentinel, Archivist of Oghma, Dark Confidant & Dark Tutelage all come to mind. Tectonic Reformation could provide some value here too.

I'd also also maybe cut down on some of those lands in favor of some more Mana Rocks. Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Hierarchy, Springleaf Drum, Fellwar Stone & Chromatic Lantern would be good includes.

Tutors are expensive af, but there are a few nice choices that are very affordable right like Open the Armory, Wishclaw Talisman, Diabolic Intent, Diabolic Tutor, Gamble & Reckless Handling. Vampiric Tutor & Enlightened Tutor were just reprinted a little ago, so they're as cheap as they're going to get right now. I'm pretty sure Vampiric Tutor was like $90 a little bit ago, food for thought. Oh man, Stoneforge Mystic also exist, and is wonderful.

Some non-specific Tribal support like Shared Animosity, Mana Echoes & Coat of Arms, Cryptic Gateway & Vanquisher's Banner could also do stuff!

Lastly, a short list of neat Equipments you could consider are Conqueror's Flail, Hammer of Nazahn, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Heartseeker, Masterwork of Ingenuity & Mask of Memory. I guess Halvar, God of Battle  Flip is technically an Equipment card too?

Good luck in refining your list!

Forging the Tyrite Sword does tutor for a specific card (Halvar, God of Battle  Flip), but it can also get an equipment instead of Halvar so I think it should be included in the list.

As far as i know most Commanderdeck´s play around 32 Land´s + Manarocks. I think something like Sol Ring/Selesnya Cluestone/Selesnya Keyrune/Wildfield Borderpost/Talisman of Unity would be great, but that depend´s on your playstil. They also help a lot fixing your mana supply.

More importend for you to know, you can´t tutor Halvar, God of Battle  Flip with card´s like Open the Armory as you mentioned in "The Butter", because as long as Halvar is in your deck/graveyard/exil/hand, he only counts as it´s front side. Tutors will only see the cardtyps of Halvar. The other side of Halvar only appears the moment you cast it.
