Seize the Spotlight


Each opponent chooses fame or fortune. For each player who chose fame, gain control of a creature that player controls until end of turn. Untap those creatures and they gain haste until end of turn. For each player who chose fortune, you draw a card and create a Treasure token. (It's a colourless artifact with ", Sacrifice this: Add one mana of any colour.")

Crow-Umbra on Isshin, Two Heavens As One - Eiganjo Uprising v1.0

There's someone that I mutually follow on Moxfield that built a deck with Ria Ivor in the command zone. They shared with me that the deck felt very slow and clunky, even with consistent access to her. Basically felt like a lot of set-up for creating enough Mite tokens to likely paint a target on your back.

I've liked Gruesome Realization in some of my recent games with it. Most of the time I've used the Draw 2 mode, but I had a game a couple of weeks ago where I used the -1/-1 mode to kill off a Krenko, Mob Boss's growing board of Goblins. Thankfully most of them were small enough to take the hit. I like the flexibility to draw or have some anti-token tech.

I've also recently started trying out Braids, Arisen Nightmare and Seize the Spotlight. I run Seize the Spotlight in my Anhelo, the Painter deck for the copy potential, but figured it could have a spot here as a first main phase play, especially if I have group drain effects on board. Giving an opponents a choice can certainly be a double-edged sword, but I think it can make games fun for the communicative aspect, and players are essentially damned by their own choices.

Last_Laugh on competitive cards vs casual cards

yeaGO I've noticed that some hatebears seem to tip the scale a little more than they should imo (almost like they got grouped with stax pieces) so that's probably the majority of the difference in scores.

The newer cards thing is possibly an issue too but most of the newer stuff is around Streets of New Capenna or older (so I'd assume that's not too new?). Indulge / Excess, Scepter of Celebration, and Seize the Spotlight from SNC with only Blood for the Blood God!, Sheoldred, the Apocalypse, and The Meathook Massacre that're newer.

Alright, I haven't exactly kept up with updates. Here over the last several months I've added 8 cards to my list, but at this point I don't remember what all was cut. Pitiless Plunderer, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Saw in Half, Seize the Spotlight, Plumb the Forbidden, Mahadi, Emporium Master, Gisa, Glorious Resurrector, and Kardur, Doomscourge are my recent additions.

Sylvan Safekeeper might help with protecting your commander. I run Yavimaya Hollow for this purpose in a lot of decks, but it ain't cheap.

Scepter of Celebration's obvious comparison is The Reaver Cleaver. I run both in my Prossh list personally.

Seize the Spotlight in any red deck with sac outlets will always draw 3, +3 treasures. I love this card so much lol.

I'm not sure you go wide enough with creatures, but both parts of Indulge / Excess have some potential here.

I run Prossh, but there's obvious similarities so few free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Prossh's Dastardly Bastard Children - Group Slug

Scepter of Celebration and The Reaver Cleaver will both give your commander trample and have some pretty massive payoffs when you connect.

Indulge / Excess and Seize the Spotlight are 2 really good cards here.

I run Prossh personally but there's a lot of similarities so feel free to check it out for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Prossh's Dastardly Bastard Children - Group Slug

Last_Laugh on Your Cheap Obscure Overperformers?

What are some cheap (let's say $2 and under) cards you've added (and to whom) to your decks that've way outperformed their price tag? Cards you won't find under your commander on edhrec sorta thing.

Scepter of Celebration in and on Prossh, Skyraider of Kher. You just sac all your Kobolds so Prossh hits like a truck and spits out more tokens. This is NUTS with Aristocrats/Impact Tremors effects.

Aerial Extortionist in Marisi, Breaker of the Coil. When you have a Goad chain going... this guy consistently connects and removes anything problematic.

Speaking of Goad... but better. Kardur, Doomscourge in Marchesa, the Black Rose is a hilarious etb to abuse and addresses a weakness to 1 shot kills like Xenagos.

Seize the Spotlight in Marchesa, the Black Rose will always draw 3 essentially free. I also started running it in Prossh (basically any red deck with consistent sac outlets).

Scapegoat in Edgar Markov. It doubles as an anti-wrath card that keeps you out of topdeck mode and pseudo dodges -X-X, exile, tuck, sac, etc. AND if you run Purphoros, God of the Forge it doubles as a finisher.

Ok, this has gone through some major changes. It originally was going all-in for food chain but now has more aristocrats/group slug elements and ways to get in for commander damage kills. Scepter of Celebration is amazing here btw! Mishra, Claimed by Gix  Meld and Seize the Spotlight are 2 other new cards I've had a lot of success with.

SirFowler on The List of Free Cast Cards and Similar Effects

@Last_Laugh I see Seize the Spotlight as a value card more than a card that can be played for free. Same with cards like Jeska's Will or even Seething Song where it seems like a free card that nets you more mana, but you still have to pay for the card itself. Cards on this list bend the rules of playing magic by allowing you to do something even though you're tapped out.
