Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Legendary Creature — Human

Partner with Toothy, Imaginary Fiend (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Toothy into their hand from their library, then shuffle.)

If one or more counters would be put on a permanent your team controls, that many plus one of each of those kinds of counters are put on that permanent instead.

Pir, Imaginative Rascal Discussion

I see! I missed that obvious ETB interaction.

Also, how does the Pir, Imaginative Rascal / Hardened Scales + Give / Take work? I assume it's only with Toothy, Imaginary Friend :

  • If Toothy is at no counters, Give + Pir (or Scales) puts 4 counters on Toothy. Then Take removes those 4 counters and you draw 4. Each draw adds 2 counters, so Toothy is left with 8 counters, right?
  • If Toothy starts with 3 counters, Give + Pir (or Scales) add 4 more counters. Then Take removes 7 and you draw 7. Toothy is left with 14 counters.
  • If both Pir AND Scales are out, and Toothy starts with no counters: Give + Pir + Scales add 5 counters (right?). Take removes 5 and you draw 5. Each draw adds 3 counters to Toothy, who ends up with 15 counters!?

Also, What do you think about Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel in here?

zigkid3 on Commander combos w/ Artifact 4 ...

ThoAlmighty No problem. To be more specific the reason why I am looking specifically for a commander comboing off with a 4 or less cmc artifact is because my LGS is holding a commander league where you can partner your commander with a lieutenant which needs to be a planeswalker (and it adds to the color identity). So I'm brainstorming what crazy stuff you can come up with with that combo.

So far I came up with Pir, Imaginative Rascal + Nissa, Vital Force you can use her ult right off the bat.

But for this thread the best combo I can think of is Sharuum the Hegemon with Tezzeret the Seeker then grab an artifact of 4 cmc with tezzeret to cause an infinite death trigger loop with sharuum. Then just make sure I pack the deck with a bunch of Blood Artist type effects.

Declaration of Naught to lock an opponent commander, can replace Phyrexian Revoker

Back to Basics is going to kill you more than the opponent you have only 8 basic land.

Phyrexian Arena instead of Tatyova, Benthic Druid (only 3 mana, and you will draw every turn and it's an enchantment)

if you don't want to play Toothy, Imaginary Friend , play Winding Constrictor instead of Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Simic Ascendancy would be really powerfull in this deck ! win condition + enchantment + counter

Atraxa is your only big creature so i will replace card like Mikaeus, the Lunarch , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit with card like Forgotten Ancient and Evolutionary Escalation to give a lot of counter to atraxa.

Could be fun to play some exltation things to kill you oponent with atraxa. Rafiq of the Many can be really fun withatraxa x).

Good luck with your deck ^^

Solid build +1! Any reason why you aren't using Pir, Imaginative Rascal or Honor-Worn Shaku ?

ManaLocked It actually is correct. Doubling Season does only check for effects, but that is exactly what Pir, Imaginative Rascal changes the plus abilities into. Pir changes it from adding counters as a cost into a replacement effect that adds X+1 counters. Doubling Season then sees this and can double the entirety of Pir's replacement effect. I have had several judges comment and double-check this exact interaction at previous Grand Prixs and MagicFests when competing in Commander pods.

Here's a link to a reddit page discussing this exact topic.

Sorry for the incredibly late reply. I haven't been on TappedOut in far too long. Haha.

Pir, Imaginative Rascal is another option to add counters. Rishkar, Peema Renegade will turn any creature with a counter on it into a mana dork, ramping you well. Fertilid becomes very nice if you can keep adding counters to it, basically allowing you to Rampant Growth every turn. Spike Feeder and Spike Weaver are also great. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great mana sink for a 1/1 counter deck like this. Champion of Lambholt is another solid creature to consider in this setup.

I think I'd cut Abzan Ascendancy and Cached Defenses . You'll have plenty of bolstering opportunities on creatures and whatnot, so I'd consider another removal option or card draw option instead. Cut three lands, too.

I encourage you to get more card draw and ramp. Zendikar Resurgent provides both, and is fairly budget. Mirari's Wake is nice, but pricier. Shamanic Revelation , Rishkar's Expertise , and Beast Whisperer are all nice card draw options. You should run about 10 if you can. Some good options in include Greed , Vampiric Rites , and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip.

Forgotten Ancient och Pir, Imaginative Rascal är bra includes samt Tuskguard Captain även Fireshrieker can vara bra då den ger den dubble skada vilket gör att den dödar med commander damage på endast 11 pwr istället för 21
