Artifact Creature — Thopter

Flying (This creature can't be blocked except by creatures with flying or reach.)

Oh man well I gotta bring up Aegis Turtle again, I love that card and blue also gets you Sidisi's Faithful, Contraband Kingpin, and Deputy of Detention,

But Concealing Curtains  Flip is sweet, and what feels way back in the day I even ran Disowned Ancestor who was okay in board stalls,

God-Pharaoh's Faithful,

Lagonna-Band Trailblazer is cool with stuff like Shape the Sands,

And hear me out, a card that works great with both tower defense and ensnaring bridge is Ornithopter.

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive does as well.

Gilded Goose gets sweet as your mana curve gets lower,

Permeating Mass cracks me up if you focus more on assault formation and High Alert, But ive never gotten around to trying it.

And I guess Brokers Initiate is just a strict upgrade to Yoked Ox with her mana sink?

Arboreal grazer is sweet I'd definitely keep him and some harbingers

And I know it's a non-bo with collected company but I gotta make the obligatory statement about how sweet Lingering Souls is with tower defense,

Though is it too slow nowadays even with bridge? Shit I feel old. At least it can chump a giant murktide for a while

So for unblockables, I could run Triton Shorestalker and Changeling Outcast but I am thinking just using Ornithopter and Rogue Class to bring out the ninjas and Distortion Strike, Smoke Shroud, and Aqueous Form to give evasion to ninjas on the battlefield.

plakjekaas on Urzas Saga and delirium

1 month ago

Delirium is not like the Party mechanic, where every card can only count for a maximum of one party member, even when a creature can have more creature types, or even all of them together. Delirium checks for all card types present in your graveyard, and card types are: Creature, Planeswalker, Enchantment, Artifact, Land, Instant, Sorcery and Tribal (like Bitterblossom). If you have 4 different of those types of cards in your graveyard, Delirium is active, no matter how those types are spread over the cards. If a card has 2 types in its typeline, Delirium sees them both.

Just Urza's Saga and Ornithopter in your graveyard together would therefor give you Land, Enchantment, Artifact and Creature for types, already providing Delirium being active.

So, Ornithopter for example? I've thought about more Cloud of Faeries, since they're better with Sapphire Medallion out.

Neotrup on Spy Kit + Gaining legendary …

4 months ago

Spy Kit grants the name of all cards in Magic who's Oracle text has the card type creature and not the supertype legendary, and does not look at the creatures in play. For instance, a Saproling Token is not a card name, and even if a physical, non token card becomes a copy of it (such as Clone), the equipped Grizzly Bears will not gain the name "Saproling Token." Likewise, if you have a legendary creature (for instance Isamaru, Hound of Konda) equipped with Spy Kit and Ornithopter enchanted with On Serra's Wings, both creatures will be legendary creatures that share a name, and thus subject to the Legend rule, so you'll have to choose one to keep and send the other to the graveyard.

Delphen7 on Spy Kit + Gaining legendary …

If I have Spy Kit equipped to a Grizzly Bears, and any other nonlegendary creature, say Ornithopter, and Ornithopter becomes legendary (ie On Serra's Wings), is the Grizzly Bears still named “Ornithopter” in addition to its other names?

azja on Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow (1st CEDH deck)

If I had to pick some creatures to cut, I'd potentially go with these:

Forsworn Paladin: menace is even less reliable than flying, and you generally won't have the mana to activate its abilities

Fourth Bridge Prowler: if your playgroup is heavy on mana dorks it can be really powerful, but otherwise it's pretty underwhelming

Phyrexian Walker/Ornithopter: good if your playgroup's decks are light on creatures, otherwise they cant get through often

Thassa's Oracle: not worth playing unless it's for the Demonic Consultation/Tainted Pact combo, since there's better topdeck manipulating enablers such as Augury Owl

Walker of Secret Ways: looking at someone's hand can provide useful info, but it's one of the weaker 2-drop ninjas in my opinion, it may not be necessary to include now that Kamigawa is out

Mist-Syndicate Naga: can definitely take over the game if someone doesn't have blockers, but making one non-evasive token can be underwhelming for 3 mana

Also I checked my list and I'm playing 29 creatures, so 32 isn't that far off!

Chasmolinker on Budget Mirrodin Besieged

Viscera Seer seems like a good addition here. Sac your Ornithopters and the like to it to find Mirrodin Besieged.
