Omniscience_is_life on Oviya constructs and copying

1 month ago

If I activate Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter 's second ability is while she has an Illusionist's Bracers on (assuming no other creatures are in play), will I sequentially get a 1/1 and then a 2/2, or two 1/1s?

I don't know if the Bracers copy the ability verbatim (which would mean it copies the value of X as dictated by the first ability) , or simply make it as though I used Puppet Strings on her and activated that second ability again.


Grind on Muzzio Madness

Cool deck!!
You might like Foundry Inspector , and Cloud Key .
Also, Training Grounds and Thousand-Year Elixir could be good.
I like Tezzeret the Seeker as a solid tutor and his Ult could be good in your deck too.
Artificer's Intuition is a good way to turn high cmc cards in your hand into mana, You can use it to get sol ring, seat of the synod, Expedition Map . And Expedition map can get academy ruins so you can return what you discarded.
Also, im not convinced on deadlock trap. I would run Puppet Strings or Maze of Ith over that card.
Anyway just some thoughts, have fun!!

Omniscience_is_life on YEAH REBELS!

In the future, please link to all cards you're talking about so we can be on the same page. Thanks ;)

Jandor's Saddlebags , Nacre Talisman , Magewright's Stone , Puppet Strings , Staff of Domination , and Thousand-Year Elixir can all be repeatable sources of untappage for Lin , and Lithoform Engine can copy stuff

Lanzo493 on Krenko, Mob Boss

If you really like using Krenko's ability, I would suggest adding Illusionist's Bracers, Magewright's Stone, and Puppet Strings. The best card to add would be Thornbite Staff since it can go easily with any of the many goblin sacrifice outlets.

These might interest you: Magewright's Stone (you can untap Mangara and use his ability again while the first activiation is still on the stack, exiling 2 things), Thousand-Year Elixir, Puppet Strings, To Arms!, Erratic Portal (return Mangara to hand before the ability resolves. it will exile the target without exiling Mangara), Acrobatic Maneuver (works like Erratic portal. when Mangara returns he will not be exiled by the old Mangara's ability, since the new one is a new object), Angel of Condemnation, Eldrazi Displacer, Sanctum of Eternity, Flickerform, Illusionist's Bracers, Rings of Brighthearth, Witch Hunter, Adarkar Valkyrie, Mimic Vat, Palace Jailer

3n3rgy2 on Old School EDH Old Border Only

I have been working crazy long hours recently so my play time at my LGS has taken a hit! However, the only 'main' problem I can see so far is that this deck is pretty mana hungry for making cheeky plays. As far as leaving up mana for Consumptive Goo or Rod of Ruin plays in tandem with Puppet Strings, Jandor's Saddlebags and Vhati, it can get costly. It is obvious that, with this being inspired by the B/G/x rock decks of old, we are very comfortable in the mid- late game. That is of course not to suggest we are bad in the early game either, we just do more as the games go on. Playing a criminally underrated Commander helps us as we are certainly NEVER the main focus at any table.

Notably (to probably, literally nobodies surprise) Seedborn Muse is the best play for this deck as fast as possible and is quite literally napalm stapled to a 2/4 body! Centaur Glade with Seedborn Muse and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa was pretty degenerate. Most of the decks I end up running into have a Taxes or Control type shell. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite does not hurt this deck as bad as you'd think and access to green lets us power thru most Thalia, Guardian of Thraben or Grand Arbiter Augustin IV effects.

Again the high toughness value to a majority of our creature base lets the wumpus rampage away and lets us use Noxious Field and Pestilence to our advantage in most multi use per turn scenarios.

As for an upcoming 'Pre-Modern" styled deck, I am really intrigued by playing a 'Bleed Out' style deck with Ankh of Mishra, Manabarbs, Spellshock, Citadel of Pain and Sulfuric Vortex style jund deck. Commanders in the running's are Xira Arien or Adun Oakenshield to lead this idea! It's in the works :)

Tarthrin on Political Intrigue and Disappearances

Thanks King Saproling,

I actually already have a couple of those in there, like Ghostly Flicker and Aphetto Alchemist.

Thanks for pointing out Deadeye Navigator, I initially took it out of the running because I didn't realize the potential. I could even pair it with Merieke for protection or untapping. Some indestructible options seems like a really good idea.

I really wanted to get Opalescence but that card is like $20. Using Scryfall, I couldn't find any other card that would let me turn an enchantment into a creature.

I only have 2 cards in there for untapping, Puppet Strings and Aphetto Alchemist. I'm not sure that is enough.

Any suggestions for cards to remove? The weakest links or cards that don't work or fit well?
