Octopus Umbra Discussion

proterran98 on Bruna

3 weeks ago

I attack with Bruna, Light of Alabaster , I have Eldrazi Conscription and Octopus Umbra in the graveyard.

1- if both auras go on bruna does she become a 18/18 or a 8/8? How do counters vs. cards like Giant Growth , effect base and power?

2- if bruna is enchanted by Octopus Umbra and Illusory Wrappings what is her base power and toughness? If she is enchanted with Octopus Umbra and I use Gigantomancer on her does she become a 7/7 or 8/8?

3 - can I choose to enchant with the eldrazi and NOT with the umbra?

4 - both have attack triggers, do they activate or has bruna already attacked?

Thank you

Aquitect's Will to replace Convincing Mirage probably. I have also had good luck with Launch and Octopus Umbra .

In order to get your boss out before blockers exist it helps to get her out on turn 2. Saprazzan Skerry and Svyelunite Temple are some of the only cards that can do that.

Other people often go voltron so Grip of Phyresis hurts them and helps you.

This is one of my favorite commanders. The amount of ramp from Thada is amazing and exiling combo pieces is just as useful. Try to steal Double Strike equipment early and exile two artifacts at a time, or artifacts that double triggered effects.

Draining Whelk and Hypnotic Sprite become reusable counter spells. They have flying so you can usually Ninjitsu off of them. Faerie Duelist is useful.

If you run out of Ninjas Feldon's Cane or something to refill your library could help.

Higure could do some serious commander damage with Octopus Umbra

Man, well done on this deck! You got all the goodies Reyhan wants.

Although.. It seems a bit shy on the mass removal department. What about Find / Finality and double with an extra recursion slot?

Then I personally would also replace midnight clock for Rishkar, Peema Renegade , as the clock only synergyses with Toothy. I rather use my graveyard then freshen it up also.

Lastly I really like Hadana's Climb  Flip (backside is nuts) and the somewhat crazy inclusion of Octopus Umbra . Lots of creatures have base power 0 anyway

Octopus Umbra fits the theme and would be a nasty surprise on a mana dork or something.

I always loved Homarid Spawning Bed with big. blue, buffed creatures.

I'd look for a few more enchantments that help you no matter who controls it. Like Gravitational Shift does. Or that don't change effect with ownership, auras like Octopus Umbra.

Look at a list of Group Hug cards possibly, like Akroan Horse. The more she can afford to give away the more she can steal.

This commanders ability is very powerful because it doesn't even target. Opponent's will have no choice but to kill Inniaz over and over. You may need to throw in more Shroud/Hexproof/Indestructible.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor. Massive ramp as she plays every Sol Ring in the game. Might be too expensive though.

Octopus Umbra is a nice buff and it takes out a blocker.

Is Anowon, the Ruin Thief your commander? You didn't say.
