Karn Liberated Discussion

Interesting. Okay, I think I understand what you want. I have no idea why I have white standing out as the color in my mind, but that sounds like the perfect color to make this a real challenge. In fact, I get a strong Orzhov vibe - even Esper. But I feel like Orzhov has more limitations and thus a harder challenge.

Kaya, Soulblade

Legendary Planeswalker - Kaya

{At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a loyalty counter from Kaya, Soulblade unless you exile another permanent you own.}

+1 Exile target permanent you control and target permanent you don't control.

-3 Until your next turn, your life total can't change and you have protection from everything. All permanents you control phase out.

-7 For each permanent in exile, flip a coin. If heads, return that permanent from exile to the battlefield under your control. (You do this for each permanent in each player's exile zone; Not just yours.)


Ooooh yeah. That's at least a $40 Planeswalker. She might not be at Instant speed like Teferi's Protection , but she's just as powerful. Like that and Karn Liberated mashed up into one sexy b****.

Wildcard. Make it snazzy. Something flashy. See if you can incorporate red, but you don't strictly have to.

@Scarlet2009 What is ex map? Also there are lots of decks with 1 win con.

@heckproof Thanks for the advice and explanation on Ricochet Trap . Price keeps me away from Karn Liberated , but i know it would be good. I'll cut the other walls. I want Electrostatic Field though. If surgical extraction hits my worldfire, electrofield and Arc Blade recurring could be alright back up with rift bolts and bolt... however, i just realized arc blade isn't on the deck list. I'll correct that. I was looking for a good red x spell. Banefire is a definite. With the aforementioned cards that could be decent. If i have two arc blades cycling through suspension one banefire cast with one tron set out could put them on a short clock. Vexing Devil s seems like the play for creatures. Any recommendations on card draw? Cut some of the ritual spells for Chromatic Star ? more red draw spells? Dragon Mage or something similar? Wheel of Fate ?

A Turn 3 Karn Liberated is almost unbeatable, so don;t worry about that. It can be countered as you said or Thoughtseize as well.. I can imagine only Burn Decks could beat that.

That is exactly how Ricochet Trap works. I wouldn’t play Scour from Existence because there are better things you can be doing with Tron online, like dropping Karn Liberated .

Your sideboard looks legal now. I don’t think the Walls you have in are remotely playable. For aggro matchups you should be playing sweepers or spot-removal, especially when decks like Burn just go straight over them.

Mainly, I think your deck lacks a backup plan. If your opponent manages to Surgical Extraction after countering it, you can only win through incidental Electrostatic Field burn, and you will lose if you try that. You want some bigger threats here. If you’re on a budget, something like Drakuseth, Maw of Flames or even just a Banefire would be good as a backup.

it's up to you, its your deck and playstyle, but Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated on the field put a big target on you and you are already dealing with a big target playing eldrazi

dbpunk: depends on the legendary permanent. planeswalkers in particular would get out of hand. nobody wants the tron player to have multiple Karn Liberated out.

Lanzo493 on How to Trade Online

So what I want to do is trade Serra the Benevolent for a Karn Liberated . Of course I'd trade up to MSRP. But nobody at my LGS has a Karn. So I would love to do a trade online.

Are trades through TappedOut relatively safe, or do people just agree to the trade on TappedOut but do it through another website like Cardsphere? If I could, I'd love to do a trade just by using TappedOut because I'm not looking to get invested in a trading website.
