Selvala's Stampede

Selvala's Stampede


Council's dilemma - Starting with you, each player votes for wild or free. Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card for each wild vote. Put those creature cards onto the battlefield, then shuffle the rest into your library. You may put a permanent card from your hand onto the battlefield for each free vote.

Selvala's Stampede Discussion

ZEMOtheSinner on ⋖⋄ Tyrannus Primævo 2.3 ⋄⋗

Hallo Draknoz, thank you for stopping by and sharing your ideas!

I thought about Defense of the Heart and Morophon, the Boundless for a long time and the reasons why they aren't both in the deck already transcend their playability. I have the first one in another deck and as a personal rule i try not to repeat the same cards in different decks to preserve their... i don't know how to call it, "sense of uniqueness". Regarding the second one, Morophon, i agree about the great synergy. It could be the only effective way to cast my commander since i removed Fist of Suns but... the problem is that i absolutely HATE its art.
I am aware that this is silly, but i just can't stand that moose pudding look and the obnoxious face. I don't want those dropping cheeks anywhere near my dragons!
Maybe in the future, if wotc ever reprint it with a new art...

Selvala's Stampede is a cool suggestion, i didn't knew the card! My concern about its possible use regards my deck's greatest weakness: on many occasions, my hand empties faster than it fills. Card draw it's a bit of a problem still and that's the reason why Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius is the deck and Shadrix Silverquill is in the Maybeboard. With an excessively light hand, Stampede risks to be a dead draw...

Defense of the Heart I find it to be quite easy to proc in edh and a game-winner if left unchecked.

Selvala's Stampede just goes crazy in a big creature deck, instead of paying 5 mana for one dragon pay 6 mana for 4!

Morophon, the Boundless is so synergistic with your commander. I see him in the maybe board and I definitely recommend putting him in. He lets you drop Ur dragon for 4 mana and makes all your other dragons cost 2-3 generic. Maybe cut niv mizzet, he's kind of his own commander.

Neotrup on (Why) does Mystic Reflection go …

2 months ago

It does not. If you cast Mystic Reflection in response to Avenger of Zendikar's enter the battlefield ability, you'll make Avenger of Zendikar tokens equal to the number of lands you control, which will in turn make plant tokens equal to the number of lands you control squared. Additionally, on landfall you're plants will get counters equal to the number of Avengers of Zendikar you currently have, which should be one more than the number of lands you controlled at the time. Overall, it's a very powerful play, but it doesn't go infinite.

The reason for this is that Mystic Reflection modifies the next time one or more creatures would enter, not all instances of creatures entering for the remainder of the turn. In fact, if you had a second Mystic Reflection to cast in response to the next Avenger of Zendikar entry trigger, it would only replace one more batch of tokens (a batch being equal to the number of lands you control), not all the triggers on the stack.

In fact, if creatures enter sequentially as part of a single spell or ability, it will only modify the first instance of creatures entering. So if you cast in response to Selvala's Stampede only the 'wild' creatures enter as copies, not the 'free' ones (unless there are no wild votes).

This also means that an opponent could flash in a creature after Mystic Reflection resolves, before Avenger of Zendikar's ability resolves to steel the effect and make it so your plants just enter as plants.

Polaris on Simultaneous ETB triggers?

I should mention one other thing for this specific situation, from the rulings on Selvala's Stampede:

The creature cards revealed for the wild votes all enter the battlefield at the same time, followed by the permanent cards put onto the battlefield from your hand for the free votes.

Because creatures are put into play at two different points in the spell's resolution, Terror will only trigger for creatures that it entered with or before (if it comes out in the free step, it won't trigger for creatures from the wild step).

Omniscience_is_life on Simultaneous ETB triggers?

If I put two creatures into play at the same time, let's say with a Selvala's Stampede, and one of them is a creature that cares about others entering play, e.g. Terror of the Peaks, does the Terror trigger? Does it see the other entering, or not?

Thanks as always :)

Thanks for the suggestions, carpecanum!

I'll definitely consider Illusionist's Bracers and Selvala's Stampede. Both look super cool!

I mention Mayael's Aria only because of nostalgia, I'm not particularly interested in trying to use it as a win-con. I know of cards like Mossbridge Troll that could work to win that way, but the first two modes (+1/+1 counters and gaining life) don't seem that impactful.

Shield of the Oversoul could be interesting, but I'd prefer effects like that on creatures with power 5 or greater. For example, I'm considering Spearbreaker Behemoth.

The creatures you mention are big, but I want my creatures to do more than just that. Especially without trample or evasion already tacked on, Primeval Protector and Gigantosaurus are not that exciting. I could see myself using Nessian Boar, though, since it can clear the way for other attackers.

Thanks for your thoughts :)
