Privileged Position Discussion

Peoni on Tuvasa’s Enchanted Whore House

2 weeks ago

You could've filled this deck with Flying Men and Storm Crows and I wouldn't have cared. It's so nice to see someone running nice lands that don't enter tapped. You saved me so much nitpicking and then feeling like a prick after.

In all seriousness though this is a nice list. If you included Greater Auramancy to couple with your Privileged Position and then tossed Solemnity and Phyrexian Unlife into the mix, killing you off would be a real head scratcher for your opponents.

Good deck. Your lands make me happy. Probably consider Utopia Sprawl. Hope this helps. :^)

TriusMalarky, Greater Auramancy is a great card, but it affects only enchantments and enchanted creatures, so it is too limited, and, as a side note, it definitely needs to be reprinted, since its price is now quite high.

DarkMagician, I am perfectly willing to accept that increased vulnerability and cost because a creature can attack and block, and, more importantly, is easier to "cheat" onto the battlefield, be "flickered" or copied, and be reanimated than is an enchantment (although all of those can be done to enchantments, but not as easily as to creatures); for example, I replaced Warstorm Surge with Terror of the Peaks in red/blue/green EDH deck with Riku of Two Reflections as its general, because Riku can copy the dragon, providing twice as much damage for each creature that enters the battlefield under my control.

Also, in the specific case of Privileged Position, a creature version of it would receive hexproof from Shalai, Voice of Plenty, who, in turn would receive hexproof from that creature, meaning that they would both have that mechanic, and only a mass destruction spell could affect them, at that point.

Gleeock, Archetype of Endurance is a nice card, but it grants hexproof only to creatures, whereas Privileged Position grants that ability to all other permanents.

shadow63, I actually made a custom creature several months ago named privileged princess, but I doubt that WotC would have their version be identical to one made by a player.

Privileged Position is an excellent card, but it has no way to defend itself; obviously, a second copy will protect both, but that will not work in singleton formats, such as EDH (yes, a player could use Copy Enchantment, but that is an unreliable combo).

I think that a creature version of that card would be great (and, preferably, in the same colors), since creatures are much easier to use, and, when combined with Shalai, Voice of Plenty, each would grant hexproof to the other.

What does everyone else say about this? Would you like to see a creature version of Privileged Position?

DemonDragonJ on Commander Legends Spoilers

I forgot to mention that both Cabal Coffers and Imperial Seal were cards that many players were hoping to see in Double masters, so they were very disappointed that those cards were not in that set, so such cards would be awesome in this set.

Rhystic Study was recently reprinted (finally!), so it very likely shall not be in this set, which is very unfortunate, since that reprint did not lower its price, by a significant amount.

Natural Order would be very nice for this set, as would Hunting Grounds and Aura Shards; also, while they are not in high demand, I would like to see both Prince of Thralls and Empyrial Archangel reprinted, as well, because they are both awesome creatures.

Inferno has not been reprinted in a long time, so I would like to see it, again, preferably with new artwork. Also, while both Mirari's Wake and Privileged Position have been reprinted, they are still expensive, so additional reprints of those cards would be very nice.

Oloro_Magic on Descendant of Eldrazi DS

Eh, I'll bite because I like Descendants' Path from a design perspective. As has been pointed out this probably isn't very competitive, but you can make it somewhat better. You likely want spot removal as you aren't very fast, neither Ugin, the Ineffable nor Crashing Drawbridge really do anything so they can go in favor of your removal of choice (I like Fatal Push in this list).

The signets also don't do much and really don't make a high enough impact. If you want artifact ramp in modern, Pentad Prism is likely better but still not good here. I'd say you are better off either running more mana dorks, or, seeing how I don't think this is trying to be terribly competitive, Growth Spasm is not horrible and has the added benefit of creating a relevant creature. I'd also likely cut the Privileged Position in favor of more relevant creatures. Redesigning the manabase to accommodate Matter Reshaper isn't a bad idea, Thought-Knot Seer is also great in any Eldrazi deck.

Speaking of the mana, you really don't need that many fetches or shocks, I'd be on something like this:

4x Eldrazi Temple (assuming you play some of the colorless cards)

3x Brushland

2x Llanowar Wastes

1x Overgrown Tomb

2x Temple Garden

1x Godless Shrine

4x Windswept Heath

2x Forest

1x Plains

1x Swamp

2x Verdant Catacombs

1x Cavern of Souls (optimally but not needed, can just be a basic)

Looks cool though, like I said I really like seeing people try things with Descendants' Path, +1'd!

DeinoStinkus on Your Deck Tickles

Some ramp: Tithe, Land Tax, Kor Cartographer, Marble Diamond

I love it! However, I would suggest adding Privileged Position and/or Leyline of Sanctity so that you can't be shocked to death either. Otherwise, great deck!

Firebird on Angel, Angel, What Have I Done?

1 month ago

I loved doing that sort of thing back in the day. The very original version of this deck used Porphyry Nodes. I'm trying to figure out the best recipe. I really want to make a deck like this actually work.

Considering the Mono-White Solemnity Angels deck that some people ran, I'm wondering if full shield mode with Suppression Field, Privileged Position (over Sigil of the Empty Throne), Avacyn, and some countermagic wouldn't be the way to go.
