Painter's Servant

Artifact Creature — Scarecrow

As Painter's Servant enters the battlefield, choose a color.

All cards that aren't on the battlefield, spells, and permanents are the chosen color in addition to their other colors.

An interesting concept for sure; I feel like I wouldn't be doing justice if I didn't mention that Painter's Servant and the corresponding "elemental" and "blast" cards:

Love that this uses WUBRG because Magus of the Candelabra is a thing. I have a Post deck that I use almost every week with my group. Its called : Gaia-post

Very cool deck, I love the specter aesthetic! I'm gonna try Blackmail in my deck Pox Diamond. I would reccomend from your maybe board Drown in the Loch and Vandalblast for sure Grixis staples. Also have you ever considered Painter's Servant? Its got synergy with your commander making them discard all spells plus it makes cards like Pyroblast, Aether Gust, and Leshrac's Sigil even better.

A nontraditional card is a card. Painter's Servant will affect a Scheme.

108.2. When a rule or text on a card refers to a “card,” it means only a Magic card or an object represented by a Magic card.

108.2a Most Magic games use only traditional Magic cards, which measure approximately 2.5 inches (6.3 cm) by 3.5 inches (8.8 cm). Traditional Magic cards are included in players’ decks. Certain formats also use nontraditional Magic cards. Nontraditional Magic cards are not included in players’ decks. They may be used in supplementary decks. Additionally, they may be oversized, have different card backs, or both.

Actually, I'm gonna do a little run-on question here. Are scheme cards considered 'cards' by the game? IE, can you use a Painter's Servant to grant schemes a colour so that protection (from that colour) works against them?

Delphen7 on Is a color changing strategy …

I don't have the list, but I know someone who runs Jaya Ballard, Task Mage with color changing effects, and it's decently powerful.

It's usually a turn 1/2 Jaya into Painter's Servant (From tutors) with Red Elemental Blast style effects backing it up. They start blowing up multiple permanents a turn until they can just win though damage while we do nothing.

It definitely gets worse with more players though

You already have most of the cards I was going to suggest... Painter's Servant helps a lot, but it's still very pricy. Crypt Angel might be worth considering. Landwalking creatures like Thada Adel, Acquisitor could also work.

wallisface on Peoples Wishlist for Double Masters …

Just curious to see what people are hoping for with the incoming Double Masters 2022.

Personally, i’m hoping for a Choke reprint (I hate playing cards that aren’t black-border) and Painter's Servant (cards getting dummy-expensive, and hopefully they can make an alt-art version that looks more appealing).

Myr retriever has several other options if you're looking to combo - Semblance Anvil+sac outlet, Scrap Trawler/Workshop Assistant as alternative options, or even backup combos that generate gravestorm (flavours of persist/undying).

I've found the combos taken as a group to be reliable because they all share pieces - the battle is packing protection for the graveyard itself and surviving to cast it. Going into black/green and playing a lot of thoughtsieze seems like it has a good chance of that, especially with a grindy backup plan.

In theory playing Painter's Servant and Spellskite for free could set up something big, but I haven't found a way to make that really tick over. I've also thought about creatures with 1 toughness and a death trigger to try and get to high gravestorm - fecundity+heartless and Hangarback/myr sire is a draw two. Still fragile though. Best of luck with the brewing - I hope you figure this one out.
