Overwhelming Splendor Discussion

Robobro72 on Sythis, should've been a Demigod

For what it's worth, there are only 3 aura's in the list, which I feel hurt's Siona as a card outside of the combo. She'll only have a ~25% success rate best case late-game scenario (all 3 left in a deck of 75 left). I would trim some chunky/less synergistic cards like heliod or nylea's colossus for some more aura removal. Or Overwhelming Splendor if you still want haymakers.

Also given the colors you're in an the quality of the land base, I think something like a Life from the Loam package with the GW bicycle land + monocolor cycling lands could give an alternative draw engine that is less vulnerable to removal and fills the graveyard for resurgent belief.

To that end I also think you don't really need arcane signet or archaeomancer's map with your land base and the colors you're in. An enchantment deck is already pretty blown out by a destroy all nonland permanents wipe so maybe just land ramp would be better. Alternatively, aura ramp like Wild Growth also alleviates the Siona problem.

I'd like to mention that Caerwyn 's use of the word "tempo" was meant in a poetic sense, not a MtG sense. Meaning, the way stressed and relaxed syllables follow each other to create rhythm in a sentence. Which was completely irregular in the original post. It was a clever pun that nobody needs to be upset about, especially not after you mentioned how the verse came to be, RambIe. After the explanation of the stack rhyming, I thought it was all great fun, but that the readers of this forum needed that explanation. Then you called us douchebags in the very next sentence, because you took a pun personal. Or you didn't understand it.

Can I see the list I'm trying to hard lock? I'm pretty sure there's many obscure answers to rare threats if you dig deep enough and play mind magic. You can't fit them all in a 100 card deck though.

I could, say, cast Silence , then Drannith Magistrate , equip with Lightning Greaves , cast Possibility Storm and cast an enchantment to spin into Overwhelming Splendor , but then you say you had a Cindervines in play, so now I have to correct that with Opalescence and Linvala, Keeper of Silence and an Enchanted Evening , just to be sure. So what did I not think of, and is it actually a card someone would play in commander?

With sterling grove, Starfield of Nyx might be fun if you want to shoot for the recurring card search combo. If so, having Defense of the Heart might also be worthwhile. Mirri's Guile could help make sure you get the cards you want. There is also Overwhelming Splendor for the lockdown side of things, though maybe a bit of an expensive cmc for cEDH. Academy Rector could help get it out (among other cards)!

RambIe on Best Play I Have Seen …

granted this year is only 12 days so far
but in last Saturdays games my buddy Silverbutters made one of the most epic plays!!!
faced off against a Edgar Markov deck poor Silverbutters was taking an onslaught of flying lifelinking vampires to the face every turn!!
but when Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose hit the board Silverbutters immediately recognized the threat
his opponent moved to combat and swung all out for the win.
Silverbutters finally released his tight grip and dropped Chaos Warp targeting Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose
Silverbutters could barely contain his laughter as his opponent freaked out.
after a about 10 mins of arguing and laughter Chaos Warp finally resolved
Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose was placed into the deck, the deck was shuffled, then passed to Silverbutters to be cut, then the top card was flipped and

@gsingh you are right, need to take that out, I only have Ghen to get rid of it, so it's of no use.

@seshiro_of_the_orochi I had Accursed Witch  Flip in the deck in an earlier version, the other one is pretty nice, it could find me Overwhelming Splendor and attach it to a player for nothing. very good thinking, thank you.

Consider adding a one of Overwhelming Splendor. Also, maybe add Obzedat, Ghost Council.

Deadshot5459, thanks for the suggestion, but Curse of Fool's Wisdom is not legal in modern. Even if it was, it is substantially worse than Overwhelming Splendor and even Curse of Thirst when it comes to closing out the game. It could certainly be built around and I actually have a deck (Gluttonous Downfall) that uses Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, and sometimes Kederekt Parasite to do exactly what you're suggesting. To do the same thing here, I'd pretty much have to redesign the entire core of the deck and probably switch from orzhov to dimir. After all, Whispering Madness is usually better than Fatal Lore while also being modern legal.
