Nice suggestions, thanks! :) Justice and Sunforger seems like a lot of fun with an instance based deck, so I could definately see an alternative deck list partially based around those cards. I think Brass Squire would perhaps have a home in such a deck :) Since this particular deck list "only" runs 10 playable targets I've put Sunforger in the maybe board for now.

I'm a major fan of the idea behind Shielded by Faith and Shifting Shadow so those cards have been added to the deck list along side Axgard Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim . Thanks a bunch :)

Quickspell on Non-Creature Naya Card Draw?

Gleeock, here is my creature list. That's all there is. Each either shuffle back into the library from the graveyard and synergize with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach , or they are indestructible and synerz with Shifting Shadow

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker

Nesting Dragon

Not as good as expected, but more eggs and dragons are not bad, especially when you can sac them due to Maskwood Nexus .

Xenagos, God of Revels

  • Obviously good with any creature
  • Synergizes as a creature with Shifting Shadow , otherwise hard to remove

Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

  • Unfortunately, his casting ability is basically useless in this deck
  • Despite being crazy by itself, Annihilator 4 is great with It That Betrays
  • Shuffles graveyard back in, so I'll get back the non-shuffle creatures, most of all Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

Obvious reasons.

Worldspine Wurm

I love this card.

  • Great with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach . That's 30 power with trample for when Sneak Attack and Worldspine Wurm are out
  • Shuffles back in
  • Blightsteel Colossus

    Obviously the best and strongest creature in this deck. Loves Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and I am running Anointed Procession .

    It That Betrays

    It has happened that "It" and its over rings Kozilek and Ulamog have come into play at the same time with Selvala's Stampede . That's 33 power (easily chump blocked though) and 10 permanents sacrificed that I then returned to the battlefield under my control. Primal Rage helps.

    Quickspell on Non-Creature Naya Card Draw?

    Thank you everybody, I have to look at all the cards you suggested.

    Ramble I quickly made a list here Monster Omlette.

    The deck has an indestructible sub-theme that works great with Shifting Shadow . The point is to get out the creatures as fast as possible using either Atla's ability or any of the "Gateways". Why bother putting in many creatures when usually Atla won't trigger that many times during a game. Instead, this deck tries to make the best of every Atla-trigger by getting the worst kind of Monster out with no misses on Birds of Paradise or Llanowar Elves or the likes.

    Since Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker works great with Blightsteel Colossus and Worldspine Wurm . Many other creatures have indestructible and so I usually only have to worry about exiling spells. As a way to protect them, I simply sacrifice them and they either shuffle themselves back in or all of the graveyard.

    I just usually quickly run out of cards.

    Feldon of the Third Path for redundancy/keeping things going?

    Shifting Shadow ? Maybe too slow

    Polaris on What happens to Aura if …

    3 months ago

    Any time an Aura is attached to an object or would become attached to an object it can't legally enchant (as in your example), the Aura is put into the graveyard as a state based action.

    Theros gods share a static ability that defines whether they are creatures or not. However, this ability only functions on the battlefield, so Xenagos will always be a creature card in other zones. If you don't have the devotion, Shifting Shadow will find Xenagos and put it into play, but it will enter as a non-creature permanent and Shifting Shadow will be put into the graveyard. If you lose devotion while Shifting Shadow is attached, it will also be put into the graveyard.

    Note that Xenagos and Shifting Shadow will count for three devotion to by themselves.

    Xenagos, God of Revels comes into play due to Shifting Shadow which should then be attached to it. What happens if I don't have enough devotion? Does Xenagos come into play as a non-creature, so Shifting Shadow doesn't even attach to him? Or does he come into play as a creature and Shifting Shadow gets attached, but then he stops being a creature? In the latter case, does the Aura fall?

    EPICSpider23 on Randomized Mayael, Spinning the Lottery Wheel!!!

    I think this is one of my new favourite decks, beautiful concept. Could spice things up even more with the likes of Wheel of Misfortune, Shifting Shadow, Sunbird's Invocation, Territorial Hellkite, Dreamshaper Shaman and Possibility Storm just so everyone else can experience your lottery wheel. Even Whims of the Fates makes for an interesting game of commander. Keep brewing awesome decks like this!
