Omen Machine


Players can't draw cards.
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player exiles the top card of his or her library. If it's a land card, the player puts it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, the player casts it without paying its mana cost if able.

Magistrate indeed stops your opponents from casting their commanders.

There aren't too many cards to prevent drawing cards in BR. Besides Omen Machine , there's basically only Maralen of the Mornsong .

Tibalt is pretty powerful for sure. But Omen Machine and Weathered Runestone don't interact in the way you seem to assume:

Omen machine exiles the top card, and if it's a non-land, its owner max cast it from exile. Runestone only forbids cards from libraries or graveyards to be cast. This doesn't hit cards from exile.

If you were to do such a thing, Omen Machine and Drannith Magistrate would be your Path to that. You could also add Uba Mask as redundancy for Machine.

One final thing: If Runestone would also forbid casting cards from exile, this would hit Tibalt, as well. As Magistrate only hits opponents, you could however do this in a WRB deck.

The commander im currently using is Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter . I haven't played with him in years and i have to say im impressed with his power to 1 hit someone. Im using Soul of Eternity a bunch of equipments (5) but also equip tutors. Nightmare Shepherd has been vital to vish kal. Instead of Grave Titan i use Geist-Honored Monk the x/x power and toughness works good with the Shepherd. And all the other nasty life gain combos. Vis kal is definitely a threat. Cover yourself with lifelink and deathtouch and hell come out And go crazy!!!

A few other mechanics to look for: rebound, cipher, retrace, aftermath, cascade. Of all these I think Oona's Grace is probably just a crazy card.

I was also thinking of other ways to cheat cards into being cast Mind's Dilation , Daxos of Meletis , Planeswalker's Mischief , Baral's Expertise , Stolen Goods , Talent of the Telepath , Diluvian Primordial , Chaos Wand , Omen Machine , Djinn of Wishes , God-Eternal Kefnet . Some of these seem like they may be inconsistent, but I really like Knowledge Pool .

Maralen of the Mornsong, Notion Thief, Narset, Parter of Veils, Omen Machine, Hullbreacher.

Jaymc1130 was just considering cEDH, and doesn't believe anyone would run a deck that includes Opposition Agent that wouldn't include all or most aforementioned cards.

It's true that a screw-you-for-even-trying-to-play-magic deck has plenty redundancy in pieces now. Yet, cards like Anticipate, Impulse, Sleight of Hand, Thassa's Intervention can still get around that. And your own interaction still works on your opponents' stuff, I'm not as worried about it in my playgroups.

Maralen won't be banned. It's not relevant outside of the combo with Agent. It's a bad card made good by an overpowered card. You don't ban the bad cards that don't do anything on their own. Especially when banning Maralen does nothing to eliminate the lock. The lock still works with Hullbreacher, Notion Thief, Narset and ilk as a "soft" lock (not that it's at all that soft), and a "hard" lock with stuff like Omen Machine.

There's nothing about what Maralen does that's problematic. There's nothing about what Hullbreacher does that's problematic. There's nothing about what Omen Machine does that's problematic.

There is a whole hell of a lot about what OP Agent does that's extremely problematic. It's the only piece that will get the axe and the only one that will need to.
