Creature — Devil


Whenever a creature you control attacks, Hellrider deals 1 damage to the player or planeswalker it's attacking.

Icaruskid on Imagine Dragons | Rosnakht [PRIMER]

Hey hey khayoz!

I went all in on go wide as my first version. It had all the Heroic spells and concentrated on buff and damage spells, no voltron:

Metallic Mimic
Roar of Resistance
Heraldic Banner
Coat of Arms
Shared Animosity
Obelisk of Urd
Signal Pest
Konda's Banner
Eldrazi Monument
Weapon Surge
Ogre Battledriver

Throne of the God-Pharaoh
Impact Tremors
Witty Roastmaster
Livewire Lash

It played pretty well. Board wipes were absolutely the killer. The game becomes adding the right amount of creatures and damage without overextending. Also sometimes my little kobolds were outclassed by more powerful creatures and couldn't attack. I could have added Dolmen Gate and evasion but then we are leaving my playgroup's budget behind. This is where I discovered Descent of the Dragons and thought it would be a great finisher that's also a "buff" spell and on theme. Then that led me to Transmogrify and I've never looked back.

But the overlap approach can do work. Like Draconic Destiny adds to your voltron threat but it also enables Rosnakht to attack giving the kobolds the buff they desperately need. Dynacharge and Weapon Surge are modal so you can buff the whole team or sneak in a voltron kill.

I haven't tested all in voltron. But indestructibility might be important. Mithril Coat, Darksteel Plate, Commander's Plate, and Hammer of Nazahn might be worth a try. I just wanted something with more sizzle, style wise.

Hope this helps! Let me know what you learn!

Master_J on Attack Attack!

Out: Solemn Simulacrum, Austere Command, Hellrider, Revenge of Ravens

In: Mardu Ascendancy, Vanquish the Horde, Breena, the Demagogue, Fervent Charge

Bringing my curve lower. Vanquish the Horde is effectively a 2-drop emergency plan. And dropping some 4-drops for 3 drops will hopefully help. Mana doesn't seem to be a big issue with all the rocks I have in the deck (TBD).

If it wasn't clear from the above: this works and the other person was wrong about the Hellrider interaction. The game can only move to the next step or phase after both players pass priority over an empty stack. That means any triggered abilities that trigger during a given step have to be dealt with and fully resolved before the game moves forward. In both the Hissing Miasma and Hellrider examples, Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin will get the +1/+1 counters during the Declare Attackers step of combat. There's nothing in the ability or the rules of the game that tells you to wait and deal with the trigger later.

Situation 1 - Using Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin and Hissing Miasma together:

The combat phase is separated into different steps. Here, the relevant step is the Declare Attackers step. During the Declare Attackers Step, first attackers are declared through the processes set forth in the rules. As part of declaring attackers, "Any abilities that trigger on attackers being declared trigger." (Rule 508.1m).

Once the attackers are declared, the active player gains "priority"--this is when spells can be cast and abilities resolve (See Rule 508.2).

When the active player gets priority per Rule 508.2, the triggers which occurred pursuant to Rule 508.1m get put on the stack. At this point, we are still in the Declare Attackers Step.

The Hissing Miasma triggered ability will go on the stack--one trigger will be placed on the stack for each attacking creature. When each triggered ability resolves, it will cause the attacking player to lose one life.

Upon that player losing one life, Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin will trigger and his ability goes on the stack. When that ability resolves, it will give him the +1/+1 counter. We are still in the priority stage of the Declare Attackers Step for this entire process.

Only after every player has passed priority and nothing is on the stack will we advance to the next step--the Declare Blockers Step. It is during that step, after all the Hissing Miasma and Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin triggers have finished resolving that you declare your blockers.

Situation 2: Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin and Hellrider

Your buddy was wrong. As with above, all the triggers will occur during the Declare Attackers Step and will resolve during the priority component of the Declare Attackers Step. Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin's triggers will resolve before you move on to the Declare Blockers Step and get to choose blockers.

Basically I’m wondering if I’ll have a stronger Ob to block with when I’m getting swung at in this scenario. Last night I was playing and I was in a similar situation when I had Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin and Hellrider out at the same time. In that scenario I attacked with three creatures triggering both Hellrider and Ob three times. When I was putting counters on Ob my buddy told me he doesn’t get those counters until after the combat phase. I didn’t argue but I wasn’t sure if that was really how it worked. In both of these scenarios, wouldn’t he get his counters before the blockers are declared? Thanks for clarifying.

Hoarding Ogre, Djeru and Hazoret, and Hellrider since it only hits one opponent are what I'd cut personally.

I'd also swap Adriana, Captain of the Guard for Skyhunter Strike Force. Same effect but 2 less mana and on an evasive creature.

As a tip, you can link card names to provide a quick reference.

[[Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin]]

[[Hissing Miasma]]


Ob Nixilis, Captive Kingpin

Hissing Miasma


Each creature attacking you triggers Hissing Miasma separately, creating three instances of loss of 1 life and three separate triggers for Ob Nixilis. The same thing happens when you attack with Hellraiser out; each attacking creature triggers Hellraiser independently, so Hellraiser triggers Ob Nix three times.

Overall very solid deck. My only recommendations would be to cut your Dragon Engine and Samurai that aren't Isshin, and to slot in Dolmen Gate to help round out the board protection suite you have with Iroas, Reconnaissance, & Teferi's Protection. The Samurai, although flavorful, are your only cards that care about single attacking Warriors/Samurai, while most of your deck wants to go wide.

Some of the following could be potential creature slot replacements:

I hope these suggestions are helpful. Down to chat through more if you're interested. Best of luck
