DemonDragonJ on Several New Cards

4 weeks ago

I am very frequently designing new cards, so here are several of my latest designs.

Angelic Intervention Show

As far as I am concerned, the fact that Heroic Intervention is not white is blasphemy, so I have made a white version of that card. I know that white usually does not grant hexproof to permanents, only to players, but I believe that this is an acceptable exception, especially when one considers how greatly green has been intruding into white's section of the color pie, recently.

Gabriel's Horn Show

The archangel Gabriel is a popular figure in Christian folklore, but, as with any centuries-old stories, depictions of him vary greatly; however, one common trait in all of his stories is that he has a horn that he uses for various purpsoes, but, again, the exact abilities of his horn vary depending upon the story, so I chose my own abilities for my depiction of Gabriel's horn. I originally had given this card a cost of only , but I decided that that was too low of a cost for such a powerful card. I also had planned to give this card a fourth ability, one that would return a creature card with converted mana cost X or less from its owner's graveyard to the battlefield, but I decided that the horn was already sufficiently powerful as it is.

Praetors' Scepter Show

Magistrate's Scepter is an awesome card, but the reason for which I do not have it in my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice EDH deck is that it requires too heavy of an investment in mana before the player can profit from it, even in a deck that has numerous sources of proliferation; when a player casts that card, there is no way that their opponents will not seek to destroy it immediately. Therefore, I have created a variant of it that utilizes my fondness for Phyrexian mana to help ease the costs of that card, and I chose to use blue Phyrexian mana, because blue is the color that most commonly can grant additional turns.

Magus of the Rack Show

This card is a creature version of Scroll Rack, which I only recently released is an amazing card; it has the same converted mana cost as the original artifact, because it does not have haste and therefore cannot be used on the same turn on which it is summoned, unless it is granted haste by another source. I originally planned to make it a 2/2, but I decided to instead make it a 1/3, because the controller of this creature will almost never attack with it, unless they are truly desperate.

What does everyone else here say about these cards? Do you like them?

Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

Aight baby gurl, bedtime. May your infectious love for infect cause infectious hate upon you. Love, Jake Stremers

This whatcha boi be thinkin' to improve dat' dirty poison build. CMDR next to Atraxa (on the input section) will make her appear as the commander rather than as a creature.

multimedia on Fractal: The Gathering

Hey, good start and interesting budget version of Vorel. I think you have the right idea with cards such as Stadium, Nexus, Ascension, Kasmina and Zone. The drawback of Fractals is they lack evasion therefore if building around them then consider cards to give your creatures evasion?

If attacking with Fractals is a main strategy then consider cards that can give you extra turns?

Could expand on other ways to get value from being able to double counters with Vorel.

Good luck with your deck.

If you want to instill despair into the hearths of people, maybe you could consider beating them with Magistrate's Scepter . When suplemented with an actual good card in your deck Lithoform Engine you can take infinite turns with a 10 cent rare.

Apart from this weird combo Lithoform Engine wil just make you inf mana with teferi in an easier way than The Chain Veil will. It can also copy you extra turn spells.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds on Muldrotha Wincons/Infinite Combos

6 months ago

Hello everyone! I have a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck and I like it a lot. However, it is the first commander deck I have ever built, and to say the least its not great. I have good cards to outvalue my opponents and work with Muldrotha, but I lack in the win condition area. I have decided to get some upgrades for that. Here is what I am planning to get:

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth = infinite

Muldrotha + Coretapper + Magistrate's Scepter = Infinite turns

By then I am planning to use the following cards in some combinations to win: Laboratory Maniac , Mind Spring , Villainous Wealth , Mortal Combat

Is there any other semibudget combos that I have left out?

Don't know if you're interested, but a good addition might be Mimic Vat , to combo with your Coretapper . Creating a hasty Coretapper every turn for 3 mana means you can activate your Golem Foundry , Lux Cannon , Titan Forge , or Magistrate's Scepter every turn, or you can super charge/accelerate your Astral Cornucopia , Empowered Autogenerator , Everflowing Chalice , Grindclock , or Darksteel Reactor . Again, just a suggestion, +1 for the fun deck!
