Sultai_Sir on Emiel, the Blessed: Unicorn Frappuccino [[PRIMER]]

Hey, Philbert_001, sorry for the late response. It's always pretty unlikely to get that sweet sweet Turn 3 kill, but here's how it goes:

  • Turn 3: Good-Fortune Unicorn. Congrats, you've achieved infinite mana and infinite life! Now, onto whatever you want. You can blink everything with Emiel, so go ham.

Again, I'm really sorry for the late response. Have a great day!

Sorry for this late response! I haven't been on tappedout much due to finals but as they're winding down I now have more free time.

Thanks so much for the ideas! I'm deciding to stay artifact focused, but I still have infinite mana combos so these will be great pay offs!


While I love Kitchen Finks as a card, I don't know if it quite fits in the list. Most of my combo pieces are artifact based so there are cards like Grinding Station and Krark-Clan Ironworks that only sac artifacts. I had Mycosynth Lattice in an earlier list which would solve this problem, but at the current time I don't know if it would be the best to include.

Kitchen Finks needs to be here I think.

TriusMalarky on Eyed Abyss of Rainbow Irises - Jodah and Jegantha

Oooh okay. here we go.

First: Cost is paid. this is and sacrificing a creature.

Second: Evolution goes on the stack.

Third: people can finally respond. At this point, the sacrificed creature IS ALREADY DEAD. You can't ever stop it from dying. There are no cards that do that outside of persist(Kitchen Finks) or undying(Young Wolf).

If it was an enchantment that said "When ~ ETBS, choose a creature you control. At end of turn, sacrifice that creature and this. When you do, search your library for a card with cmc equal to or less than the chosen creature's cmc + 2" the you could flicker it. But.... only in that impossible situation.

Peoni on Elenda, the Dusk Rose

Kitchen Finks has a white green color identity and so can't be run in this deck. Sorry. :^(

I'm not really knowledgeable on aristocrats or really anything Orzhov, but just as some general advice, I'd recommend running more ramp with rocks like Arcane Signet, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, and Talisman of Hierarchy. A Swords to Plowshares would also be a nice inclusion.

TriusMalarky on Which Colors are Secondary and …

I'd say green is, in 60-card, the best for huge bursts of life.

White has lifegain tacked to creatures, so it's also pretty good in 60-card.

Both of those, however, are limited to Sideboard tech as Lone Missionary and Life Goes On and Kitchen Finks and such.

If you want lots of real life gain that works MD, you want Black. In 60-card you get Sovereign's Bite, Collective Brutality and Alms of the Vein. In EDH and 60-card Aristocrats builds, you get Blood Artist effects.

But did you know that artifacts are pretty darned good at gaining life? A lot of the best lifegain engines are artifacts.

itachi45: "Not to mention your spells can't go to creatures and me. You will spend every spell just trying to keep my creatures away and given protection spells, I will eventually get through." Searing Blaze and Searing Blood hit creatures and your life.
Usually Wild Defiance and Spellskite should be enough, otherwise you can also run Lifegain: Weather the Storm, Life Goes On, Feed the Clan or even Kitchen Finks to block enemy creatures and gain life.

ThisIsMyAccount on Remember to blink

The curve of the deck is a little high for what you're trying to do I think. Skittering Surveyor sort of helps speed things up but you only included one in this deck. Considering a green splash for Wall of Roots and Noble Hierarch to speed things up could help and also open up a more reliable Kitchen Finks as zapyourtumor suggested. You can flicker the Wall of Roots also so the 0/-1 counters never really matter.

Green also opens up Eternal Witness. Maybe even Reclamation Sage and Spike Feeder for the board.
