Sengir Nosferatu Discussion

Nice Idea!

There are some token creators that you could use. Belfry Spirit , Regal Bloodlord and Sengir Nosferatu .

Maybe for the weaker changeling cards like Skeletal Changeling .

Changes Out Agent of Erebos - other ways to remove cards from graves. Crystal Chimes - to 1 sided Sengir Nosferatu - out Suture Priest - good but gives a market on your head early on. Thespian's Stage - out for Swamp.

In Teysa Karlov - tokens love this Revival / Revenge - handy Ethereal Absolution - removal from graves, good buff Smothering Tithe - awesome Swamp - back to basic

To try Kambal, Consul of Allocation

Please link all cards using double brackets.

Sengir Nosferatu

Mairsil, the Pretender

The way copy effects interact with cards is a little different than your understanding, but the difference is important to understanding the answer to this question. When a card references itself using only the card name it means "the permanent this ability is printed on". So for example Inferno Titan's fire breathing ability would allow Mairsil to give himself +1/+0. When a card says "a card named ..." or "creatures named ..." then it is looking for that specific name, no matter what it is printed on. So if you are playing a 60 card format and cage Korlash, Heir to Blackblade you could discard a Korlash and get two swamps. Similarly the bat from Mairsil could pull the caged Sengir Nosferatu from exile, but can not bring Mairsil because it is not a card named "Sengir Nosferatu".

Also the command zone is not "inside" the exile zone, it is a completely different zone. However it is a public zone and abilities can track it if it goes to the command zone instead of exile.

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to link it. It's the easiest way to make sure everyone reading your question understands what's going on: Sengir Nosferatu, Mairsil, the Pretender

No, this doesn't work. That "name replacement" only applies to abilities on an object that refer to itself by name. When a card changes zones it becomes a new game object, and the ability given to the Bat token doesn't refer to the object on the battlefield that originally created the token. The token created by Mairsil will still say "a card named Sengir Nosferatu", meaning it can't bring back Mairsil (but it can bring back the caged Nosferatu).

Also, the command zone is not "inside" the exile zone. They're two separate zones. If a commander would go to exile then its owner can choose to move it to the command zone instead. Oblivion Ring's 2nd ability won't be able to bring anything back in that situation because there's no "exiled card". You might be thinking of Banishing Light, which can bring the card back from the command zone because of the different way it works.

Sweet deck, I had a casual one like it years ago. I really liked Sengir Nosferatu personally, he is very hard to get rid of.
