Simian Spirit Guide

Creature — Ape Spirit

Exile Simian Spirit Guide from your hand: Gain .

Took your advice. Cut 2 Tombs and added 2 Petals for speed. Simian Spirit Guide is on my radar now too. Still figuring out how to pilot this.

Simian Spirit Guide isn't modern legal unfortunately.

TypicalTimmy on Card creation challenge

I spent the past 15 minutes sifting through Google to figure out what the heck an "onion card" is for MTG and had no results. Then I remembered the satire news site The Onion News Network and went to Urban Dictionary, which described an Onion as a "woman with too many layers".

I'm assuming by "onion", you mean an overly convoluted card? With, level up?

Right on because that's what you're getting.

Knights of Night

Creature - Human Vampire Soldier Knight

Level Up Pay 2 life (3/4)

1-2 Flanking, Nightbound (3/4)

2-5 Flanking, banding (4/5)

6 Flanking, banding, melee (5/6)

If that hurts your eyeballs, good.

And yes, mono-black casting cost with a mono-white indicator. Because heck. Why wouldn't you want to pay 5 mana and 12 life for a 5/6 that makes combat about as fun as studying for a math exam?

And if I didn't hit the mark enough, here's an errata that I'll throw on before submission. Nightbound on Lvl 1 & 2 but nothing else. Why? Because heck you that's why. Figure it out.

We make a ton of cards in this forum for Commander, almost exclusively it would seem nowadays.

Make a card for legacy. Must be playable. Can't have a mana value of , but you can certainly have built in cost-reductions such as Archive Trap, or have an alternative utility such as how if you pay close attention, Simian Spirit Guide can actually be played as a 2/2 creature.

Jett2112 on Kess, Dissident Midrange

I love your support creatures but I feel like you should bring in a Snapcaster Mage. That and Mission Briefing will help to recur counterspells and removal on opponents turn since Kess, Dissident Mage can't do it.

This deck as shown now seems more "turbo" than "control" to me with that Ad Nauseam, Simian Spirit Guide, Grim Monolith etc. If you want to lean in to the turbo storm line consider Baral, Chief of Compliance, Archmage Emeritus and Yawgmoth's Will

Baral, Chief of Compliance + Lotus Petal + Brain Freeze + Underworld Breach = storm off till your own deck is gone and then usually have enough Brain Freeze copys to mill all opponents.

There are ways to make a storm or magecraft win with Archmage Emeritus, Storm-Kiln Artist and Underworld Breach but that would mean raising the curve and running cards that are bad topdeck by themselves.

+1 this is a proper cedh deck! Check out my "cruel control" version of Kess cedh Pox Diamond to see what I mean about the difference between "turbo/storm" and "control". Also I have a pretty extensive maybe board there that might have some spice edhrec won't show you.

Elvish Spirit Guide and Simian Spirit Guide are pretty budget mana acceleration cards. Lotus Petal also isn't a Mox, so it's decent. Murmuring Mystic as well is pretty good, and Ral, Storm Conduit is really strong with Repeated Reverberation.

Fervor -> Mass Hysteria?

Also, Rite of Flame, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Mana Echoes, and Simian Spirit Guide can help you ramp. Mana Echoes is really only great with X-burn spells and such, though, so it's not for every Krenko deck. It would be fire with Staff of Domination, though ^^

PinnedPhoenix on Whole Lotta Red - Birgi Wheel Combo

kookoo - so I tried adding Lotus Petal in place of four lands, and it works great! can totally give the deck the gas it needs in the early game to take off, while also proccing Birgi's extra mana since it's a cast spell--which is what makes it a touch better than Simian Spirit Guide, here. thanks again for the recommendations!
