Scroll of Fate Discussion

BMHKain on Help wanted for Kadena Morph/Manifest... ...

1 week ago

Apologies for the previous dupli-comment. The server was a bit off at the time...

Well, as an update to the deck: at least we can say Volrath, the Shapestealer is out, & Ezuri 2.0 will be staying for a very long while...

Also, being able to BOUNCE Mantfests to your hand w/ Temur Sabertooth , Words of Wind , even Scroll of Fate allows you a choice for Manifestation. While killing the ones you DON'T own via Thieving Amalgam is like a perfect vengeance; even cards like Qarsi Deceiver , Temur War Shaman , Whisperwood Elemental , even Ghastly Conscription , Ethereal Ambush , & even Write into Being .

Also adding Cloudform , We have an amount of 115 cards in so far; or 114 if nobody wants me adding such a card. From there, we have 2 things left; the 3rd Question about what helps Creatures; Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifest all apply to these Bylaws. & since all start as Faceless 2/2 Colorless Face-Down Token Creatures, the question now is: In Colors, what would be good for both , cards, & those w/ eith 2 Power and/or 2 Toughness, or lower even?

From there it's the first, & last question: What to Cut?!

I'll proceed in removing some of these things; they've been established anyway. :)

So, what cards that can support basically any Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifests (Colorless 2/2 Face Down Tokens.) can help big here?

I'm done for now; I'll just remove some things as they're accomplished...

Bloodsucker1211 be my guest!

I added Primordial Mist and Scroll of Fate to the main. Getting those morph creatures will help save on mana costs, especially with the scroll. Then you can technically play your creatures as though they had flash (manifest + pay their cost), or you can manifest, block, and cast your face down instant spell with scroll + mist out.

If you think of anything else please let me know!

Hey, nice version.

I don't think you need all of Vedalken Orrery , Leyline of Anticipation and Vivien, Champion of the Wilds . While each of these flash enablers are good, once you have one on the battlefield then others can can be dead cards. Vivien is by far the best of the three since the main reason you want flash is for morphs and she does more than just giving flash she can help to find morphs. Consider cutting Orrery for a Diabolic Intent or budget Diabolic Tutor ? A tutor can get a flash enabler or one of Vesuvan Shapeshifter / Brine Elemental to combo or one of Scroll of Fate / Seedborn Muse or just a card you want in a certain game play situation, etc. This is more flexible and being flexible is very good in Commander.

Paradoxical Outcome is a good card for a bounce theme. Instant bounce morphs or manifests back to your hand to play them again while also drawing cards equal to the amount of cards you bounced. Bounce manifests that are face down instants/sorceries allowing you to then cast those spells from your hand.

Another interaction that's like bounce is flicker, Ghostly Flicker . With Ghostly if you exile a manifested face down permanent card then it enters the battlefield (ETB) face up like it was never a manifest in the first place. This a way to cheat permanent cards onto the battlefield and very good with Scroll of Fate since with Scroll you have control over what you manifest and it's no mana cost manifest.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice version. I'm also brewing with Kadena.

Echo Tracer when it turns face up can bounce itself back to your hand. This is good with Kadena since can then cast Tracer for free to draw. When Tracer has flash then you can do this trick during your opponents' turns. Add Seedborn Muse and this Tracer interaction can draw four cards over the course of a cycle of players turns.

Paradoxical Outcome is a instant trick to bounce morphs to draw cards getting to then cast the morphs again. You can also bounce manifests to your hand to then cast those cards. Aphetto Alchemist is a morph who's good for one reason it can untap an artifact meaning it can untap Scroll of Fate , a mana rock or Strionic Resonator , that's good for a two drop. Wonder can be a win condition with morphs/manifests giving them flying. It has to be in your graveyard, but that's not difficult.

Good luck with your deck.

I'm disappointed in Jeskai Mystic Intellect(scroll down). It honestly looks like a complete mess :( It lacks any real strategy or reason for having certain cards? It's like a completely different team made this precon than Faceless Menace. Wizards really has zero idea of how to build a noncreature centric Commander precon.

Nothing in Mystic Intellect comes close to Scroll of Fate and Seedborn Muse 's power level in Faceless Menace and the rest of the value in precon is sparse:

I was holding out hope that the secondary Commanders in the Jeskai deck would be good and thankfully one of them is. My only reason to get this precon is Elsha of the Infinite as she's an actual General that makes sense for Jeskai since her prowess ability is powered by her other other abilities. She's a threat to do Commander damage with prowess, card advantage using the top of my library, infinite combos, flash for sorceries/artifacts/enchantments.

Mono red is getting some goodies in the precon. Dockside Extortionist is a good blink target and can potentially make a lot of ramp the turn it's played which is good for a two drop. He could become a red Commander staple depending on what price he levels at. I like that he's a Pirate since Pirates need more good cards. Treasure strategies needed a low mana cost efficient way to make treasures to go with Smothering Tithe which by the way is good upgrade for this precon especially if against Faceless Menace.

Backdraft Hellkite looks powerful, Past in Flames on a stick, more repeatable card advantage in mono red. Seems excellent with powerful burn Price of Progress . Flying of Hellkite is helpful to be able to potentially attack again with it, but it needs haste.

Ignite the Future is a super charged Light Up the Stage , but it has too high of a flashback cost which is unfortunately ruining the theme in the entire precon. It's good in the precon with Backdraft Hellkite . With Kess, Dissident Mage as General since can get the bonus of potentially playing three free spells with it for only four mana.

Staizer - Get ready for a long response:

I did look at the same list as you did, but as a longtime morph player, this deck is a disappointment. I've already made my thoughts on Kadena clear so I'll make that response short.

Kadena:

A bland Sultai value engine that brings nothing new to the table. She isn't a bad card by any means, but she doesn't address any of morph's biggest weaknesses. I'd still play Animar, Soul of Elements , Kruphix, God of Horizons , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and maybe even the new Bant brawl commander over her.

The choice of morph/manifest related reprints

Some fine inclusions. Ixidron , Stratus Dancer , and Vesuvan Shapeshifter are nice, but they chose to exclude most of the best morph/manifest related cards: Dream Chisel , Ixidor, Reality Sculptor , Whisperwood Elemental , Riptide Entrancer , Voidmage Prodigy , Voidmage Apprentice , Aphetto Runecaster , Primordial Mist , Obscuring AEther , Unblinking Bleb , Weaver of Lies , Brine Elemental (though this one actually makes sense), and even Backslide . I would never expect all or even most of those to make it into the deck, but a couple would've been nice and would've made more sense than something like Deathmist Raptor or Silumgar Assassin .

Value reprints

Not much to complain about here as there is some solid value in the deck, though I think Cloudstone Curio or Equilibrium would've been good value reprints that interact well with the theme mechanic.

New cards

Only Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer are worth mentioning here. I know I sound like a broken record, but none of the new cards help address the issues facing morph: speed and the fact that morph is a value based mechanic that requires a massive mana investment. Morph will always be a casual mechanic, but it needs something that reduces the cost of triggering morph, or something that allows for multiple activations (my hope was for repeatable Backslide effects). Neither of those issues were addressed by the new cards in this deck. I would've been happy with just 1 card that helps in that way...1 card.

Is this a good pre-con for new players? Yes. Does it have value? Yes, though most of the value cards are only that way due to scarcity. I think many will end up tanking in price. Will it win games against the other pre-cons? Probably. Will it win games against even 60% decks? Unlikely.

So is it a good pre-con and I am being extra critical? Maybe, but this mechanic has had a special place in my heart for a very long time (Morph was first introduced when I was a little kid and just starting out playing Magic). I was excited to see morph finally get some needed reprints and support. Instead the new cards aren't that inspiring and the reprints honestly look like they just pulled up Gatherer, typed in "morph", and then picked some of the first things that they found.

Dig deeper into the Sultai Morph precon decklist and you can find lot of reason to buy it. The manabase alone may be one of the better manabases for a three color Commander precon. Eleven nonbasic lands ETB untapped which is by precon standards an improvement from past precon manabases.

Why are the Signet lands ( Darkwater Catacombs ) being printed as rare lands? These lands don't actually make mana without having another land/one mana first, this is not an ability that's rare. These should be uncommon since they're much worse than Filter lands ( Sunken Ruins ) which are also rare lands.

Land value in the precon (in order):

I'm happy to see Ash Barrens reprinted because it's land that should be in every Commander precon. There's 17 two drops which is an improvement for precon deck building. Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer look like good cards for morph. Silencer will however not hold at $10 of value it will decrease a lot. I don't know enough about the 13 other new cards to evaluate their value in the precon.

Valuable reprints in the Sultai deck (in order):

Some notable exclusions for a morph theme:
