Platinum Emperion Discussion

griffstick on Most underrated commander of all time

@Savaaage, I do like the draw 4. Its really nice, and the big body with annihilator 4 is very strong. However at 10 cmc it's even harder to cast than Void Winnower (@9 cmc) and I don't think it's a better card than Void Winnower either. At 10 cmc the only card I could see taking out for it is Terastodon and that's also a really good card.

The last question you asked was if I use to run more eldrazi in the deck? I use to run 5 at the beginning. In this decks very early deck building stages I had all the low $ price tag eldrazies, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger in the deck. I cut the eldrazies from the deck because they would just be dead in my hand for way to long. Having so many high cost cards was bad for the deck. So I cut all the ones that I thought had the lowest impact or sat in my hand way too long because of it's high cmc. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger was the last one to get cut. And it was mostly in for its removal for why it was in the deck for so long. and it was pretty cool winning by exile of Library. But 10 cmc again was too much. I kept Void Winnower and Artisan of Kozilek because they did some really good things that mattered most to me. First Void Winnower , it creates good evasion for multani and makes it hard for your opponents to play their cards. and Artisan of Kozilek is important because it can cheat on mana cost on some very strong cards in the deck such as, Bane of Progress , Greenwarden of Murasa , Platinum Emperion , Terastodon , and Void Winnower just to name a few.

So having Eldrazi Temple in the deck prior to cutting all the eldrazi felt very important to the deck. It's much less important now, but there is only one very small draw back from playing this card and that's the interaction with Caged Sun (its not a forest). The land comes into play untapped and can tap for right away at no cost. And when I have an eldrazi it's even better. So it's no problem to throw in the deck for the chance that I can cast an eldrazi for less even if there's only 2 in the deck.

BS-T - you know I had most of those cards on my list and cut them before my last refinement. I don't know why I didn't put Circle of Protection: Red or Story Circle in there!

ScionsStillLive - much appreciated

Deck list is here: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/burn-everyone-bwr-pillow-fort-bleed/

I've been play testing it for a week. In the description I have some notes and half the cards I've been considering.

griffstick - I was afraid I would kill Platinum Emperion if using Death Pits of Rath or that it would prevent me from using Necropotence

StopShot - Karma and Blanket of Night was my combo but I dropped it because I was trying to simplify the deck. I might put it back in. Actually I think I should.

@B.A.N.E.'s original post.

Those cards just stop damage. What about loss of life. You should consider Platinum Emperion and Platinum Angel

@Quicksilver - My only fear is that, it can be stolen and used against me with cards like Expropriate .. I may have to plan better when casting my commander, instead of including Platinum Emperion .. but we'll see.. Thanks for the suggestion, though..

Platinum Emperion would save you from your commander should he become a problem.

Defense of the Heart - run Shared Summons instead Godsire you could cut for Giant Adephage which gets super busted Mirari's Wake could be cut for Dictate of Karametra Platinum Emperion is just cringe Emrakul, the Promised End doesn't get a cast trigger if put on the field with your commander Balefire Dragon could be replaced by Steel Hellkite Nylea, God of the Hunt can be replaced by ramos

most of these are for budget balance

I want to see Overwhelming Stampede , End-Raze Forerunners and Soul's Majesty in here somewhere. They'd help out pretty well. You also need some more lands but only like 2 or 3. I suggest cutting some of the less impactful big bois.

CavemanlyMan on Eldrazi Copy Win!

May I suggest Helm of the Host and Minion Reflector .

Also after looking into it some more here are some other cards I found: Arcane Artisan , Heat Shimmer , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Kindred Charge , Mirror March , Mirrorpool , Rite of Replication , Saheeli Rai , Soul Foundry , Twinflame , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Splinter Twin

Also I feel like you don't have a whole lot of the really good eldrazi. Obviously you are missing the eldrazi titans, but those cost a lot. Some other suggestions are It That Betrays , Thought-Knot Seer (has an enter the battlefield effect), Deceiver of Form , Breaker of Armies .

You might benefit from having a lot of copies of cards like Platinum Emperion , Platinum Angel or Void Winnower out on the battlefield at the same time, but I would say that deviates from your overall game plan.

@bushido_man96 (Or someone else I don't have to rely on all the time... X/): My next two 4+ on the hot seat are Loxodon Lifechanter & Felidar Sovereign . This is prime Wincon material, much like several others thus far. But I feel Platinum Angel might outclass both, & to a fault where I actually am contemplating putting in Platinum Emperion . I'm trying to be consistent, but what to do, what to do... Cut a Wincon, or have the possibility of Losing even by conventional means? Thoughts, as well as from others in addition?
