Kaya's Ghostform Discussion

Spoke more to iamhikari.

+1 Kaya's Ghostform back in to go infinite w/ Sun Titan and a sac outlet. +1 Goblin Bombardment that he owns.

Don't really like Skyline Despot and Terror of the Peaks here either....but I'll leave that to your preference.

-1 Swamp, -1 Plains. +1 Caves of Koilos , +1 Battlefield Forge for cheap mana-fixing. And maybe the appropriate Zendikar/Kaldheim Pathway lands if you want to go a bit higher in budget.

Arcane Signet is ~$2 now too.

At the risk of too many more enchantments Hidden Stockpile could provide both token generation and a sacrifice outlet.

Depending on how much you prefer turn-after-turn enchantment based draw like Phyrexian Arena you could instead use burst draw, like Night's Whisper or Village Rites ....1 mana to turn your creature into a draw spell in response to a boardwipe or block? Can be really effective.

And alternatively, with this amount of boardwipes and low CMC removal, you might just want to stick to the big value beat-sticks like the Despot and Terror as wincons rather than Aristocrats.

Cool list! This kind of deck is for sure Mana-intensive so having a lot of land and fixing is good, but you could pretty easily cut a few lands without issue. I'd suggest the guildgates and Temple of the False God since they're slower. Basic lands are surprisingly effective and easy to cheat out with the creatures and such you're already running.

Also, some extra protection for your commander could be helpful, since it's a key part of the strategy. Something like Swiftfoot Boots , Gift of Immortality , or Kaya's Ghostform would work, though something re-usable like the boots would be preferable considering the amount of boardwipes you have available.

Pikobyte on Muldrotha Wincons/Infinite Combos

Kaya's Ghostform , Altar of Dementia and Lotus Petal generate infinite mill for everyone. You could also mill yourself and win with Jace or oracle if you have the extra mana. Or if you use LED instead of lotus petal you also generate infinite mana. Those 3 cards are a cheap combo in terms of mana with 3 mana total, all cards should be affordable and in case you have an Intuition they form a nice package to search up. Also they’re pretty useful on their own outside of the combo. I use that combo in my Muldrotha and it gets a lot of work done

Looks like mean ol' Torgaar is back at it again!

Unfortunately, the ruling on Wound Reflection only activates if the opponent lost life. With the wording on Torgaar, the life total of the target player simply becomes half, not actually dealing damage or any loss of life.

HOWEVER, Wound Reflection and Archfiend of Despair DO combo with cards like Peer into the Abyss , Blood Tribute , and Virtus the Veiled because they specifically state loss of life or loses.

Another mean card to look into is Raving Dead , does the same kind of thing as Virtus the Veiled . I run it in a mutate deck and I can say giving either of those creatures a power bump and trample is mean! So something like Loxodon Warhammer or Shadowspear .

Another route to look at Torgaar, Famine Incarnate is to consistently stabilize yourself at 20 with his ability. So things like Conjurer's Closet are an interesting option to keep at 20 in the late game.

A different way to go about this is to go with some instant speed or enchantment abilities that trigger when your creature dies. You already have Kaya's Ghostform in the deck, some other cards could be Supernatural Stamina , and Abnormal Endurance . These also can double up on some of your other creature ETBs if you play these in response to the creatures activation of self sacrifice or a board wipe.

While a little pricy Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools also seems to want to do what the deck wants, creating tokens, sacrificing them, and getting out your commander from the command zone!

Yesterday on Does Prince of Thralls have …

2 months ago

I was playing on MTGO and controlled a Prince of Thralls . An opponent owned and controlled a nontoken creature enchanted with a Kaya's Ghostform they also owned and controlled, and the creature died. They paid 3 life twice for each of my Prince's triggers, then didn't get an opportunity to return the creature with the Ghostform's ability.

I know Prince doesn't have standard replacement effect wording, but I'm not sure why else the creature wouldn't have returned.

what happen how to trigger work

Oh, I also wanted to mention that Magus of the Will with Kaya's Ghostform brings him back instead of exiling him, and this will let you play any of your big X spells that somehow made it into the graveyard from a sad counterspell or which were milled.

Fertilid is good with the counters but is too slow whenever I run it. I think you should run something like Blossoming Defense over Kaya's Ghostform, Kaya's Ghostform will make it drop all the enchantments that are on it. Mask of Avacyn can be another card in a similar role. The Ozolith seems so good in this deck that I would think about adding some equipment in and maybe a few other artifacts to try and get Inventors' Fair to work. Sarulf, Realm Eater may be a board wipe that will synergize, though a bit finnicky. Obsessive Skinner seems too difficult to get working early with little pay off if it does, Evolutionary Escalation may fit well into that deck, making counters, and friends, early and often. Mighty Emergence can probably do some work as the game goes on, Necropolis Regent seems like the perfect curve topper, Retribution of the Ancients might be a good removal engine. I do think that trample is the most important keyword early, so Ring of Kalonia is a good choice, Dragon Fangs or Vorrac Battlehorns may be good additions as well.
