Hey, I am trying to add Alchemist's Refuge, Intruder Alarm, and Not of This World to my binder. Each are from the mystery booster set, which the code I looked up was (MB1). Tappedout is kicking them back saying that it cant find it, when I went to figure out how to add the cards myself, I can not interact with the page at all. It mentioned needing to be an upgraded member, which I am, but do you also need to be a supporter to submit cards? Sorry if I am asking the wrong person, just every time I see anyone on this site asking about adding cards, you always respond. Haha. I am also fairly certain you wrote the tutorial yes?

Let's begin with evasion - because answers run out and might not even be there.

My favorite way to make Volrath unblockable is discarding Filth with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in play. I also love Rime Transfusion and having Snow Covered Swamps. Manifold Key does double duty by also untapping big mana rocks or other toys like Quicksilver Amulet. Dragon Shadow is a decent option, and helps most of the other big creatures. Whispersilk Cloak is obvious, as is Rogue's Passage.

Some less obvious plays are using instant speed board wipes via Vedalken Orrery to clear the field right before your turn so nothing is left to block - or similar instant speed board wipe effects like cycling a Decree of Pain. Things like Pestilence/Pestilence Demon can clear the field with little threat to a pumped up Volrath. You could include a Breaker of Armies, which would absorb all of your opponents blocking creatures or also be discarded to Volrath for 8.

Ok, then you have protection. Normal stuff like Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves. Volrath gains a lot of protection and evasion from the swords of X and Y. Light and Shadow is a must play. Feast and Famine is a very high recommend followed by Fire and Ice. Imp's Mischief is invaluable in redirecting removal or countering a counterspell. You can run Not of This World for a good counter. Veilstone Amulet is a good option for protection as well.

Really you want some protection but if you focus more on ramping, haste, evasion, and other ways to continue putting pressure and threats out then the odds are that you will find a way through. Command Beacon and Netherborn Altar can help Volrath be cheaper, or even cheated into play. Have some reanimation effects, preferably those you can use repeatedly like Strands of Night and Sheoldred, Whispering One. Artisan of Kozilek is amazing when you can hit 9 and bring another major threat out. If they "deal" with Volrath it just means they have less answers for Phage the Untouchable or Blightsteel Colossus, or the next time Volrath lands and swings.

Hey Astroburrito, saw your reddit post!

Cool build- a buddy of mine ran this for a while with all the mana doublers he could jam in mono-u. Fast mana into Eldrazi hurts...

Best thing to do imo: run more lands and ramp to match your curve. You want to cast Braids on turn 3 every game (so run lots of 2 drop rocks) and then have lots of mana if she gets hated out.

Your fatties are pretty ruthless so I wouldn't run anything that is slow or conditional like Keiga or Arcanis. Assume none of your creatures will live unless you protect them... run things like Not of This World or Mimic Vat .

Gl and +1!

Bane of Bala Ged does not resolve.

Not of This World cannot counter Ceremonious Rejection . Not of This World can only target a spell or ability that targets a permanent. Bane of Bala Ged is not a permanent if it is still on the stack and being countered by Ceremonious Rejection .

Opponent casts Bane of Bala Ged and is typed out. I cast Ceremonious Rejection , my opponent then casts Not of This World , I then cast to counter that spell with Miscast . Then my opponent casts another copy of Not of This World . What resolves?
