King Macar, the Gold-Cursed

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed

Legendary Creature — Human

Inspired - Whenever King Macar, the Gold-Cursed becomes untapped, you may exile target creature. If you do, put a colorless artifact token named Gold onto the battlefield. It has "Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool."

freezerboy on The Color Pie Must Die

Thanks reddeath68. I actually run Mages' Contest in my chaos deck, Sucker Punch Party and it is hilarious to see how much life some people are willing to spend. Darkness is another one I run in my ninja deck Agents of Darkness which is great as well. I like King Macar, the Gold-Cursed's ability, but with the creature being exiled it sorta screws with my deck abilities since they need the creature to actually die to get buffed. It has "may" in the ability so I at least get a choice, so I'll do some testing and see what comes of it. Thanks for the vote and suggestions.

Mages' Contest might interest you. Also King Macar, the Gold-Cursed might make for an interesting removal and partial mana ramp. Either way love this kind of deck. Breaking the color pie is always fun.

Its really meta dependent, but I personally run way more mana rocks in my Phenax deck (~10 rocks) to ensure I can get him out a turn earlier and just generally keep up with the table.

Into the Story is an amazing draw spell in mill decks.

Junktroller is a big booty boy, who can also fuck over anyone trying to use things you've put in their yard.

Crypt Incursion is a 100% must include IMO. Graveyard hate is key in any mill deck, and this one can gain you an insane amount of life out of nowhere... this card has saved my ass countless times.

I see you have King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, a great choice! I really like a few other "Inspired" cards in this deck, Disciple of Deceit and Arbiter of the Ideal being the best two other options. I was running the Siren before too, but it recently got cut.

Imperious Perfect has a sweet tap ability. But I think you mean just from being tapped and untapped? If so, the inspire mechanic is entirely based off of being untapped. There aren’t a ton of good ones, but one will draw a card.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is a removal spell.

I think I have a few things that might work for you.

This first is Child's Choices. The idea is to be playing only with cards that give opponents choices to make. Everything from good ones like Rhystic Study to meh ones like Killing Wave. I use to run a 60 card deck based around the same thing. This is kind of a side project.

Next up I'm not sure really counts but Beep-Beep Motherfucker. Its a vehical deck which isn't that unique but it is more focused on tapping and untapping things that have abilities like King Macar, the Gold-Cursed and Fallowsage. I dunno if this is all that unique though, I just haven't seen it out in the wild.

Last idea is playing the best color, colorless In all seriousness if your meta doesn't have a colorless commander floating around it needs one! There are all kinds of silly things you can do if you just pay a little more mana than other colors usually have to. Check out my Druken Distortion. Though if you are looking for unique you might build Hope of Ghirapur or Karn, Silver Golem instead. Just watch out for that Vandalblast...

I really don't like how the King Midas story is depicted on King Macar, the Gold-Cursed . Here's how I would like to redo his card:

Macar, King of Nistos

Legendary Creature - Human Noble

Noncreature permanents you control lose all abilities and become Gold artifacts with "Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color.” unless was spent to cast this spell.

Other creatures you control lose all abilities and become Gold artifacts with "Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color.” unless was spent to cast this spell.

Sacrifice a nontoken permanent: Create a Gold token.


This makes him really easy to abuse if there's a Trinisphere on the field or if you're paying commander tax. I mean, paying literally makes every permanent you control Gold, and nothing else. Paying with the commander tax or with Trinisphere, etc. (taxing effects) he gives you an amazing ability!
