Prosper, Tome-Bound Discussion

Coward_Token on Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. A Good …

1 week ago

Gleeock: I know right? I'm holding out on the hope that Crimson Bond will feature some new Werewolves too.

Dennick, Pious Apprentice: Spirtual sucessor to Roalesk, Apex Hybrid in commiting suicide by legend rule for fun and profit. Cast one copy of his card, then later cast another copy to send it straight to the graveyard, ready to be Disturbed.

Butcher the Lineage: I like how the art makes it look like she's scratched the man on the painting bloody

Florian, Voldaren Scion: Looks like an Insolent Neonate that cleaned up his act. One weakness of impulsive draw is that you risk exiling something you can't play this turn; digging nicely reduces this risk. Has an obvious place in the 99 of Prosper, Tome-Bound.

Firmament Sage: I wonder how much this effect would have to be nerfed in order to be white. Just "Whenever night becomes day"?

Sunstreak Phoenix: Like Dragons, I don't feel Phoenixes are appropriate for this plane. At least it's a heron.

Hallowed Respite: Neat tweak off Flicker. Dunno what the deal with the nonlegendary clause is tho.

I know he's still so knew but Prosper, Tome-Bound is the most fun I've had playing a deck in recent years! Sure I only really play him with my semi-competitive table but each time I do, I find a renewed feeling of joy as I play it! Play things like Dauthi Voidwalker,Etali, Primal Storm and Valki, God of Lies  Flip in tandem with Dream Devourer to use my payoff cards Mayhem Devil,Reckless Fireweaver and Marionette Master is just go old fashioned fun with treasure tokens!

I will stand by my statement that he is the most fun pure B/R commander!

Golgari Spellslinger with Willowdusk, Essence Seer? Sounds fun. How about something creatureless with Targ Nar, Demon-Fang Gnoll?

Finally: Prosper, Tome-Bound instant tribal.

any_response on A Prosper Doomsday pile

3 weeks ago

Hello swarm intelligence, I am really drawn towards Prosper, Tome-Bound as a commander and would like to incorporate Doomsday as a wincon. I know of some piles that use one of the extra turn spells red has to offer, but i really dislike them, so i am looking for alternatives. My best idea up to know was to wait for a payoff to be on the battlefield and a cheap instant in hand to go for an instant-speed Worldgorger Dragon/Animate Dead-pile, using Tibalt's Trickery as the top card of the pile to exile with Prosper, but that can only be a plan C at best, as a lot of setup is required.

Do you have better ideas to offer? Best case would be of course instant speed and as mana-inexpensive as possible, but feel free to post everything that comes to mind, maybe we can work something out from there :)

DrukenReaps on Not using the obvious?

1 month ago

So I've built Prosper, Tome-Bound as Prosper Through Theft and I've found myself avoiding a good number of cards that are in most of the decks according to the data we have. In some cases I'm avoiding cards that would otherwise be in all the Prosper decks. These temporary card advantage cards like Outpost Siege. While good cards do something that I really don't like doing. Exiling my own things. Even the commander does it along with a few other exceptions I did make.

I feel that too many of these effects will just lead me to leaving a bunch of my own cards in exile never to be seen again... So I prefer the more normal advantage from things like Endless Atlas and I'll just have 2 or 3 things that exile my own stuff but focus pretty hard on casting my opponents things from exile instead.

Do you have a deck where you designed, either by accident or on purpose, against the grain in some rather obvious aspect?

Made the change to Prosper, Tome-Bound and the tests have gone well! I should get the cards I ordered tomorrow and then play the deck the day after and over the next few weeks. It is interesting actually writing out the primer though. I'm already finding some things that were hold overs from Kalain, Reclusive Painter that ought to get the boot.

So got a decent number of games in with the deck now to get a good feel for it I think. And came away with the impression of not knowing if I like it or not... It just seems very reliant on getting the right treasure producers and if those go away I don't do much of anything. Kalain obviously doesn't do a lot of treasure production but she has been a really good pay off when those treasures are there. I found myself in one game getting multiple turns where I started a turn with 11 to 15 treasures and played out some normally decent creatures as absolute monsters. Other games the deck was ...fine? I'll be looking at ways to make it better and possibly looking at other commanders.

Prosper, Tome-Bound , Magda, Brazen Outlaw , Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge , and Fain, the Broker seem like options for keeping a similar idea to the original deck if I do decide to change the commander.

InfernalTusker then I would actually recommend playing some 60 card magic but if you'd like to skip over that these are my suggestions. Just to narrow things down a bit-

Dungeons of Death Sefris of the Hidden Ways

Planar Portal Prosper, Tome-Bound

Reap the Tide Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait

Eleven Empire Lathril, Blade of the Elves

Each of these is relatively recent so the price gouging should be minimal. Each of them is also set up to give consistent value over the course of a game without being too crazy weird. Of them Sefris is the only one which is unlikely to have any more support for the dungeon mechanic they are doing there. So if you happen to enjoy one of them continuing to build on it will be easy.
