Omniscience_is_life on Ronin Warclub + Phantasmal Image

1 day ago

Phantasmal Image only must be sacrificed when it becomes the target of a spell of ability, and Ronin Warclub's first ability doesn't use the word "target" at all. Magic is very clean about most of its rules--if an effect doesn't use the word "target" then it isn't a targeting effect (though do be careful about some keyword abilities, whose rules text are the only part about them that use the word target!).

Will the attach clause of Ronin Warclub automatically kill Phantasmal Image upon Image entering the battlefield? Or does it only work if you pay the equip cost?

Couple Problems: Phantasmal Image, Batterskull, and Kaldra Compleat incorrectly show up as banned in modern. Secondly, you can't access sideboard mid match in the playlets feature when using Karn, the Great Creator, please fix these issues fast! Thanks.

Scytec on Commanders You Defend?

Vela the Night-Clad - Because she came in the ninja planechase set, everyone builds her ninja tribal, but she is so good in combo. She is in a great set of colors, any infinite blink effect on a creature insta-wins, and if it is infinite mana, such as Deadeye Navigator+Peregrine Drake or Palinchron+Phantasmal Image there is a lot of solid overlap in your win cons. Also, Rite of Replication, if you dont want to go the combo route, just hits all your opponents for 30 damage when kicked.

Neotrup on Will Artificial Evolution's Effect Be …

No. A creatures copiable characteristics are defined by what's written in the card as well as other layer 1 effects (basically other copy abilities that alter the creature, like Phantasmal Image). Artificial Evolution is a text changing ability so it's applied in layer 3.

@enpc, TypicalTimmy, Lanzo493 - I have made some changes to the deck today. I swapped Krosan Grip for Nature's Claim, then I swapped the infinite mana combo of Grand Architect+Pili-Pala for Palinchron+Phantasmal Image/Deadeye Navigator. Since I picked up Palinchron I changed my ramp from artifact based to land based, swapping Fellwar Stone, all 3 Signets, and Darksteel Ingot for Fertile Ground, Utopia Sprawl, Search for Tomorrow, Rampant Growth, and Cultivate.

I couldn't find the copy of Freed from the Real I thought I owned, so the Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle combo I was considering didn't make it into the deck, though I would still like to hear y'alls thoughts on the matter. If you dont mind, in my previous comment I mentioned two decks I had laying around both Nicol Bolas is a THIEF! and the Mimeoplasm pre-con located here. If you dont mind flicking to those if you have a second and letting me know if any of those cards would better fit this deck.

Sorry to keep bugging you, but each of you seems to be competent in the format of cEDH and I want to get the best start that I can. I appreciate all of your time, and thank you again for all of your help!!

@TypicalTimmy - I would actually like to keep my mana combos netting me at least one color of mana because i don't want to have to find my mama combos and find a way to filter as well. I run so few solid tutors that i think adding a piece would be worse than waiting a turn honestly. I know there are a few combos that net infinite green mana with Arixmethes, the Slumbering Isle like Freed from the Real. Could those potentially be an option? Or is that too slow because i have to cast 5 spells to make him a creature?

@enpc - I actually own a Palinchron. Only reason I did not include it was because of the high CMC. You think it is worth putting it back in over the Architect combo? I also have an E-Wit i could slot in quite easily. If i do choose to go the Palinchron route, Phantasmal Image steps into the win con slot with Palinchron provided i use land based ramp correct? So i should decrease my rocks except maybe Sol Ring and Mana Vault, add back in land based ramp, drop architect combo and pick up Palinchron? What is your opinion on Arixmethes with this like i mentioned to Timmy?
