Prosper, Tome-Bound

Legendary Creature — Tiefling Warlock

Deathtouch

Mystic Arcanum — At the beginning of your end step, exile the top card of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play that card.

Pact Boon — Whenever you play a card from exile, create a Treasure token. (It's an artifact with ", Sacrifice this: Gain one mana of any colour.")

     ElTacoDude: Sorry but I disagree lol. Crackle with Power only costs five mana to deal five damage to a single target, where everything you've listed there is minimum six.

     In the case of Fireball & Rolling Thunder you have to divide their damage to hit multiple opponents. Devil's Play & Banefire can only hit a single target, and Fall of the Titans can only hit two targets.

     Comet Storm is good but to deal 15 damage to three opponents costs twenty mana whereas Crackle with Power only costs fourteen.

     Jaya's Immolating Inferno is something I might consider as an addition as opposed to a replacement. Even then a bit hesitant though - if you're sitting on a lethal amount of treasures and the board gets wiped (as it tends to do haha) and you don't have another cheap-to-cast Legendary in hand, you're cutting into your total damage just to recast Prosper, Tome-Bound in order to meet it's Legendary condition. The spells are meant to be finishers, so you can see how this scenario is not ideal.

     All that being said, I'm definitely going to consider Jaya's Immolating Inferno though. Thanks! =)

I'm currently tinkering on a Rule-0 deck with Prosper, Tome-Bound and Faldorn, Dread Wolf Herald. This could be a commander that would play both in its deck:


Jelena, Joiner from the Abyss

Legendary Creature - Tiefling Druid

Menace

Whenever you play a card from exile, create an enchantment aura curse token named Hellfire with "At the beginning of enchanted players upkeep, that player loses 2 life, draws a card, then discards a card". Attach that token to target player.

Non-land cards in your hand have foretell. Their foretell cost is equal to their mana cost minus .

ZendikariWol on What makes a deck-worthy commander?

On topic, I really like build-around commanders, but building them with a bit of a twist: something the commander enables or assists with but doesn't directly entice you to do. Examples are Sisay, Weatherlight Captain politics (because politics decks run SO many legends, seriously!), or Prosper, Tome-Bound exile-based theft.

Off topic, slow your roll on the big words, my guy! I admire your propensity for loquaciously expanding upon your subject matter, but "menageries" has other (magic-relevant) meanings that could be confusing, "thereupon" could have been cut and nothing in the sentence would have changed, "immense vastitude" is redundant and vague- vastitude with regard to what? If you mean possibility, just say that! ... I'm mostly just givin' ya grief, it's a little hard to follow but there are worse things to be than pretentious, for sure.

Holy balls that's a lot of previewed cards, none of which I've ever seen before.

Mono-colored character commanders + Backgrounds is a good way of creating a new set of Partners without having to worry about synergy around the original ones. In the 99, the backgrounds seem to make pretty good pseudo-Auras for Voltron too.

I liked The Monarch so I expect to like The Initiative as well. The Undercity isn't super exciting (why single target burn and a glass cannon token for an EDH-specific set?) but the final room gives creature beatdown some love at least. I'm hoping that mono-white will receive some strong initiative cards, seeing as it's a color with both good evasive creatures and defense which places it in a good position to both take and keep the intitiative. I also hope there's some better dungeon reward cards this time around.

Bane's Invoker: I get that they wanted to make a mono-colored cycle that included all of the Dead Three, and that Bane is Lawful Evil, but mono-white still feels weird, especially when the flavor text uses the epiteth "The Lord of Darkness".

Abdel: Meh. Flash would have been cool here, especially at that cost.

Lulu: Seeing as wholesome and cute as she's supposed to be, it feels weird that she fits well at the helm of an Aristocrats deck. That smile ain't right either.

Commander Liara Portyr: Mmmm yes, I like this, even if she's slightly expensive. Beatdown support and boros card advantage? And it's impulsive draw where the risk of whiffing is greatly mitigated by built-in ramp, greatly ressembling Prosper, Tome-Bound while still doing it's own thing? Sorry, but allow me to indulge in a "Yasssss queen".

Fang Dragon: While it's at a humble common rarity, I could see this fitting in otherwise high-MV Dragon tribal decks for the decent Adventure part

Elminister: No surprise there. The -3 doesn't seem super appropriate for EDH but w/e, spellslinger scrying tribal sounds neat. Obviously, inspiration can be found in azorius Eligeth, Crossroads Augur decks

Raphael: Still waiting for a proper Demon tribal commander, a simple anthem with an evergreen keyword isn't going to cut it. Less personality than Zurzoth, Chaos Rider too

Myrkul: Hahah persist One with the Stars? That's so weird, I love it. You can tap out your dorks to cast a wrath, then tap their enchantment-copies to keep going!

Mazzy: Sigh, feels like the same mistake as Tiana, Ship's Caretaker; if Mazzy gets hit by a wrath, she's not going to be able to see the Auras fall off. Even if she could, Aura card's reliance on creatures is problematic, since you'll probably find yourself in situations where you first have to spend some mana on casting/creating a creature, then using whatever's left to save just some of the exiled Auras.

Battle Angels: Would it have been too good if it just said "more than you"?

Nautiloid Ship: neat that Vehicles are getting more EDH support, though reliance on mill feels a bit awkward

Tasha: Just one spell per "ultimate" activation! Cheecky synergy with her Laughter. Demon tokens kinda feels like flavor filler and I feel like she could cost one less seeing as she's quite slow and vulnerable, but w/e, still neat

Firkraag: I appreciate a good goader, but the Dragon tribal feels pretty incidental. Works with non-goad forced attacking for both your opponents' creatures (Goblin Spymaster) and your own (Hellraiser Goblin). (No Angel's Trumpet synergy tho.)

Cap' Ng...N'gh...whatever...: Feels like it'll be much more consistent than the often scarily big Umbris, Fear Manifest for Horror tribal

Nalia: Doesn't feel super white-black and go-wide beatdown isn't the best for EDH, but it's nice that party is getting some flavor-approprate love

Polaris on Prosper Tome Bound Flip side …

Prosper, Tome-Bound just says "you may play that card" with no other stipulations, so you can cast any side you have mana for. If it restricted you to casting creature spells, noncreature spells, spells with certain mana value (restricting the spell cast to a certain mana value was the change made to cascade to stop it being broken with Valki, God of Lies  Flip), etc, this answer could be different, but cards exiled by Prosper can essentially be played just as if they were in your hand.

Hey, if I exile a flip card like Valki, God of Lies  Flip with Prosper, Tome-Bound can I play the other not front facing side of the card so in this case Tibalt, Cosmic Imposter?

Crow-Umbra on Isshin: Mardu for Dummies

2 months ago

No worries! I'm glad you liked my first couple suggestions ACapo18.

I've played my Isshin deck about 5-7 times IRL with some more games on the horizon for this weekend. I think I swapped out Cunning Rhetoric after my first couple of games. In my experiences, it wasn't much of a deterrent, and the cards it exiled weren't particularly useful.

I love Prosper, Tome-Bound; he's one of my recent favorite commanders. I understand how he can be a card advantage engine, but I think him and the other Impulse draw sub-theme is kind of disjointed with the aggro, go-wide stuff that Isshin wants to do. If you needed to, you can likely keep Prosper and Laelia, but Bell Borca, Spectral Sergeant feels kind of out of place compared to the other 2. If you like Impulse draw, have you looked at Florian, Voldaren Scion? He can dig down and pseudo-tutor depending on how much damage you're throwing around each combat.

I can see what you're going for with the creatures that care about Modified status, but I don't think they synergize enough, or have enough support with the rest of your deck to keep included. I personally like Breena, the Demagogue the most (I run her in my own list), but I don't think you're running enough Modified enablers to keep some of the others. That's ultimately your call depending on which ones you like most.

Mirror Box also feels kind of out of place as an anthem effect, since it only helps your Legends. The only other card in your 99 that this really benefits is Rionya, Fire Dancer

Underworld Sentinel also seems really slow for the payoff that it can potentially achieve.

I think if you cut any of those cards, you could likely include a bit more: token productions damage anthems, draw, and board protection. Here are some cards I've played with in my list that I like:

Hopefully these additional suggestions are helpful. Would be happy to keep exchanging ideas if you would like. I have an Isshin primer write-up on my profile where I discuss some card options, in case that's of any interest to you. I've generally found that keeping Isshin's mana curve fairly low allows him to rebuild pretty quickly after waves of removal.
