As folks keep posting on this long-dead thread to ask questions, I am going to lock it. Anyone with a question should ask it on the Rules Q&A section of this site: Link.


redfoxfire - Yes, you can use Lithoform Engine to copy the activated ability of Inventors' Fair.

Last_Laugh on The Sixth Doctor/Romana II

Hey, just a head up, but Adrix & Nev, Parallel Lives, Annointed Procession, Mondrak, and Ojer Taq don't work with The Sixth Doctor's tokens but they do work with Romana (I tried to do the same thing til I was also corrected). Rule 111.12 covers this. A token that is the result of copying a permanent spell isn't "created" and doesn't trigger any effects like the cards above that care specifically about creating a token.

You're after more effects like Lithoform Engine and some of the stuff like Clara Oswald from your maybeboard.

I personally run Peri Brown as my Dr.'s companion so exact same colors and strategy still, but feel free to check out my list for ideas (and rule 111.12 actually typed out). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Dopplegangbangers - Historic Flash Convoke Copies

Just a heads up. Doubling Season, Adrix & Nev, and any other effects you have that care specifically about a token being created have ZERO synergy with the 6th Dr. (but they do work with Romana). Tokens that are the result of copying a permanent spell are treated more like clones that copy everything they can including cmc but they aren't "created" like a typical token. Rule 111.12 for reference (or you can check my deck's description, link below).

You're after effects that either trigger your Dr. additional times or that copy his tokens after the fact. Things like Strionic Resonator, Lithoform Engine, Esika's Chariot, Roaming Throne, Clara Oswald, etc.

Flash and untap enablers are also pretty bonkers with the Dr. since he'll make a copy every turn you cast a historic. I also have a list of flash, untap, and trigger/token copiers in my deck's description for easy reference.

Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. It's the same color combination and strategy, but I run Peri Brown as my companion. Dopplegangbangers - Historic Flash Convoke Copies

Mystic Forge + Top + artifact cost reducer = Draw your deck. Forge is great "draw" so to speak as well.

Ugin, the Ineffable - "Draw", removal and ramp

Buried Ruin/Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant - Recursion

Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter/Vedalken Orrery - Flash. Might be anti-synergstic with the haste commander but mitigates over-extending and allows your "trigger each turn" card to trigger more often. Plus, isn't it cool to be like the blue player?

Maybe Strionic Resonator - Double attack and ETB's, also note Lithoform Engine for flexibility

From a quick scryfall search it looks like Clara Oswald, Lithoform Engine, and Adric, Mathematical Genius are in your colors and could copy the trigger/make it trigger an additional time.

TheBestMagicCard on Emrakul, the Promised End

Hehe, I just took out Wanderer's Twig, and Traveler's Amulet, for a sec, I think to try and fit in both Abstruse Archaic and Lithoform Engine, since Roaming Throne doesn't work like I first thought it did, but I got excited to copy abilities...

I was also able to fit Wayfarer's Bauble back in, which I think is ultimately better then the Twig and Amulet, but still isn't really that great, but same arguments to include it as the Twig and Amulet...

Yeah, um Environmental Sciences is a p BAD card, and I would probably never play it any other deck... but it happens to be a colorless Sorcery, which is kind of rare, so it's actually a hard-to-get-discount on Emrakul's casting cost... and it's cheap, and it gets a land... It's not a good card, but in this deck it kinda does a lot... Sojourner's Companion is similar to Environmental Sciences, in that it cost 2 to get a land into hand, and is also a p BAD card... But it can count as two card types in the graveyard for Emrakrul, and even though I think it will be done sparingly in the future, there will be better artifact lands that have yet to be printed...

I'm really trying to milk Emrakul's cost reduction in this deck, because I'm trying to ramp it out as soon as possible... I've won on turn 3 several times by casting Emy, because I had the ramp AND card types in the grave, to totally control the game state, mess everyones else up, and then just smash face... Getting infinite mana helps too... But yeah, the sooner you have the option to casy Emy the better, so that's why I'm still running bad colorless instants and sorceries...

I guess until there are more better colorless instants, sorceries, and tutors, I think I'm still going to run these jank cards, because they're still as good as it gets for now... But it does work! I rip face with this deck at the mall...

But heard! Thanks for the consideration and input!

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant seem weak in reanimator. Auriok Champion is a clear upgrade. Windbrisk Raptor big reanimation target that is so on theme it should be a crime.

Late to Dinner on theme reanimation.

Strionic Resonator/Lithoform Engine doublers.
