Possibility Storm

Possibility Storm


Whenever a player casts a spell from his or her hand, that player exiles it, then exiles cards from the top of his or her library until he or she exiles a card that shares a card type with it. That player may cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then he or she puts all cards exiled with Possibility Storm on the bottom of his or her library in a random order.

hellokitty6666666666666 on New hubs to be added

legendofa I guess just decks whose main theme is causing chaos for the table lol. Shuffling permanents or spells around, cheating others' creatures or permanents out, randomly countering spells, just causing general chaos.

Cards like Grip of Chaos , Planar Chaos , Possibility Storm , Hive Mind , Eye of the Storm , Chaos Warp , Scrambleverse , Warp World , Wild Evocation , etc. come to mind.

Searching decks and forums on here brings up quite a lot of results. I would consider my deck here: Giving Good People Bad Permanents a chaos deck. EDHREC has a 'Chaos' theme hub as well if you're interested in looking there.

Romer on Riku's Replicants

Hey Forceofnature1, thanks for the positive feedback!

Yep, I've played this deck many times over the past decade. It was my first commander deck, way back in 2011, and I've continued updating it over time. Riku's definitely a target when he comes out but there are so many other sources of replication that I can often still be a threat with big board presence without him.

Hmm, I'm not super into chaos playstyles myself but if you were looking to go in that direction I'm thinking you'd want things that let you cast spells for free so you could save your mana to copy those spells or copy the creatures as they enter the battlefield. Things like:

You could also look at things that have this effort for all players, banking on your ability to create additional copies of spells, letting you pull ahead of other players in value:

Trying to think of other chaotic effects - maybe Genesis Ultimatum ? You could copy the Ultimatum itself, plus any creatures that ETB from it you could make copies of, too.

You mentioned reworking your Riku deck with Sakashima at the helm - did it become mono-blue or did you use the new Sakashima partnered with someone green/red?

king-saproling on Birgi EDH: A Tale for the Ages

You may already know this but a copy of a spell isn't cast (unless the card specifies that it is cast, like Isochron Scepter), so Birgi won't trigger for copies. Makes things like Bonus Round a little less exciting :/ But still cool!

These might interest you: Possibility Storm (both the original spell cast and second spell cast will trigger Birgi), Knowledge Pool (similar to Possibility Storm), Cloudstone Curio, Kobolds of Kher Keep, Crimson Kobolds, Crookshank Kobolds, Anarchist, Priest of Urabrask, Dockside Extortionist, Grinning Ignus, Stolen Strategy, Rite of Flame, Electrostatic Field, Firebrand Archer, Thermo-Alchemist

If it's in pioneer, locking your opponents out of the game is pretty much impossible, you simply don't have the pieces needed for that. Modern magic cards don't do that kind of stuff all that often anymore and if they do, they usually don't appear in standard sets.

you can still lock your opponent out of casting spells by using Possibility Storm and Teferi, Time Raveler or Drannith Magistrate

you can use Narset, Parter of Veils and Notion Thief to stop your opponents from drawing extra cards but you will have to empty their hands using wheel effects or discard, you also won't be able to prevent their first draw in their turn.

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Knowledge Pool or Possibility Storm prevent your opponents from ever casting spells.

also Mycosynth Lattice and Karn, the Great Creator to lock your opponents lands.

Sultai_Sir on Biggest, Dumbest, Craziest Enchantments/Instants/Sorceries

For my Kykar, Wind's Fury deck, I want to build around one card type, and make it fun. Casting cards like Mind's Dilation or Djinn Illuminatus have always interested me, but I can't decide what card type to build around. From what I've found, Instants and Sorceries have more crazy support cards like Thousand-Year Storm and Swarm Intelligence, but enchantments have big dumb stuff like Possibility Storm and Sunbird's Invocation. So what are the best of each type, and which should I choose?

I think this is one of my new favourite decks, beautiful concept. Could spice things up even more with the likes of Wheel of Misfortune, Shifting Shadow, Sunbird's Invocation, Territorial Hellkite, Dreamshaper Shaman and Possibility Storm just so everyone else can experience your lottery wheel. Even Whims of the Fates makes for an interesting game of commander. Keep brewing awesome decks like this!
