Soul Foundry Discussion

discipleofgary73 Great Whale is gas, was perfect back before they printed 'rix and the commander was Taniwha . Played High Tide , Conjurer's Closet , Nim Deathmantle you mentioned and super stupid stuff like Sky Swallower + Soul Foundry + Donate + Mindslaver . Sadly Breaching Leviathan and Slinn Shady don't trigger on flickering... but I'll try fitting the whale back in :)

Sirgupp on Exiled Forces Muster

hello mr. durtee i just wanted too say hey cool nice deck but your playing too many creatures like what if you get field swiped dude?? haha wouldnt that be crazy any way you should make it a landless stacks control prison combo storm deck with blue i herd those were good okay thanks you john bye

I'm going to try to order these from my most to least recommended.

Mirror March: I get making token copies, even if it's only nontoken creatures. What I can't get behind is costing 6 and STILL HAVING A 50% CHANCE OF DOING NOTHING.

Spirit Bonds: Ignoring the weak payoff of the spirit token (at least by edh standards), paying five mana and sacrificing a specific creature to protect one guy for one turn is pretty lame. You can't even protect your seance tokens because they're spirits.

Mercy Killing: If you choose an opponent's creature, they get the tokens. If you choose your own guys, you're going wide at the cost of two cards.

Eyes of the Wisent:

COWARD Show

Emrakul's Evangel: I can't see what he does other than act like a one-time sac outlet that you have to wait for. 3/2 is going to be pretty close to what you're usually sacrificing anyway.

Huatli, Warrior Poet: Her token is cool, but her other abilities are really weak for the cost. Also she got a tiny booty.

Caller of the Claw: He'd be like a backup Fresh Meat if he counted the tokens too. 1 less mana for 1 less p/t would have been alright. Too bad.

Summoner's Pact: Kind of a weak creature tutor since you aren't playing toolbox or gunning for combo. Only green too.

Hornet Nest: Deathtouch flyers are good, but you don't have a way to damage it yourself and you probably have bigger threats than getting hit by birds.

Hoofprints of the Stag: Unless you add a lot more draw, these stags take forever to come out.

Godsire: Nice token, but he's got no haste or protection, which means you have to wait for the token while this dumbass sits there waiting to see if anyone around the table wants to remove him. Could be alright if you cheat him out reliably.

Regisaur Alpha: Neat to make a token copy of, but just under the bar on his own.

This is all in no particular order.

Precon artifacts ( Idol of Oblivion , Mimic Vat , Soul Foundry , Lightning Greaves ): Look at them. They do everything your deck wants to do.

Precon creatures:

Precon enchantments ( Song of the Worldsoul , Intangible Virtue ): The best populate and the best token anthem.

Precon Garruks ( Garruk, Primal Hunter ): Garruk.

Precon Sorceries ( Farseek , Hate Mirage ): Cheap ramp. Token copy maker, but for other people's creatures.

Assemble the Legion : So I heard you run doubling season. But really, you know what this does to games.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker : Splinter Twin backup. Makes infinite tapped kikis with helm, in case you needed that.

Huatli, Radiant Champion : Easy to gun for the emblem, with an alright mid ability

Nacatl War-Pride : Forcing blocks means the rest of your creatures get through, or that you can divvy up the copies to other players. Gets really crazy the next turn when you populate one of the tokens. Absolutely insane if you get an additional combat.

Heroic Intervention : Boring, but necessary

Teferi's Protection : Extra boring, but even more necessary since it's the only answer to biff out there that isn't countering it.

Selfless Spirit : Not as boring since you can make a token copy of it for repeat use.

Baloth Cage Trap : Wow, when does anyone play an artifact in edh?!?! stupid card

Sneak Attack : Cheats creatures out with haste at instant speed for one mana and puts them in the grave to seance afterwards.

Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift : Kind of an investment, but a permanent Seance with haste is no joke.

Survival of the Fittest : Puts big boys in grave, and any creature you want in hand.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : :)

ok thanks for coming to my ted talk bye

Aratus on Ghired, Conclave Exile EDH

Ooo Soul Foundry would be sweet on the right creature. One of the things that makes Minion Reflector interesting is that populate effects from Ghired, Conclave Exile or Trostani, Selesnya's Voice that would clone that token would then lose the 'sacrifice EOT' clause. So choosing between Soul Foundry or Minion Reflector is interesting, one exiles a creature and then needs to pay X to use it, the other only triggers ETB once so is a little faster but applies less pressure without a populate effect on the table. It is something to think about, thanks!

swanseahammer on Ghired, Conclave Exile EDH

Sweet deck! However, Minion Reflector isn't great with Ghired, Conclave Exile IMO because the token itself has "At end of turn, sacrifice this permanent" so any copies you populate will also be sacrificed at the beginning of the next endstep. Though there is value in having extra copies of creatures such as Utvara Hellkite or Avenger of Zendikar even for one turn. So it's up to you if you want extra copies that are sacrificed, or one copy that you can repeat with Soul Foundry for example. +1 either way, really nice build :)

DemonDragonJ on Commander 2019...

I am not fond of aeon engine, because reversing turn order is not a very useful effect, and can be abused to prevent a player from taking a turn; such effects should have been kept in un-sets, in my mind.

However, that new version of Chainer is quire awesome; is he the fourth character from the Weatherlight saga to be given a new card? I hope not, since he lived long after that story was over. The fact that the creatures that he reanimates do not become nightmares is a flavor fail, unfortunately. I now wonder if there shall be a new version of Braids in the future, or perhaps a card of Chainer’s mentor, Skellum?

Bloodthirsty blade is a very unique and interesting design, and does anyone here think that that is Gerrard in the artwork, when he and Urza were forced to fight each other?

The reprint of Geth is nice, since he has become expensive, recently.

That new demon is quite awesome, as it is essentially a second Phyrexian Obliterator for this format; its mana cost is rather high, but the fact that it has madness helps to balance that.

At this point, reprints of Akroma's Memorial and Vedalken Orrery are highly unlikely, but a reprint of Overabundance would be very awesome, indeed, and would perfectly fit the red/white/green deck.

Skyfire phoenix is a very nice card, and I especially appreciate the artwork; does it remind anyone here of the Firebird segment of Disney’s Fantasia 2000?

Yes, there is a new version of Greven! I especially like how his artwork is a dark parallel to the artwork in the new version Gerrard, although I do not remember if the two of them ever fight (although I still am reading Prophecy, and have not yet reached the Invasion cycle in the novels).

That reprint of Soul Foundry is great; it was not terribly expensive, but it still was long overdue for a reprint, in my mind; since I started playing this game in 2003, when I was still in high school, I have many fond memories (and some not-so-fond) of that card.

The reprint of Pristine Angel is also nice, but I do wish that she had been given new art for it. I actually am surprised that WotC did not reprint Luminous Angel , because she would have been perfect for the populate deck.

Mire in misery is definitely a bend for black, but at least it does not outright destroy enchantments.

Mimic Vat or Soul Foundry would give you a ready supply of rats.

Shimatzu on Rector Tokens, do they work?

2 months ago

Since you would have to exile Academy Rector and Arena Rector for their tutoring to take effect, does this still work if you make tokens that copy them like with Helm of the Host or Soul Foundry ?

carpecanum on Clones, Clones everywhere

3 months ago

Clones are one of my favorite things. You aren't using actual Clone etc though. No problem.

Infinite Reflection hasn't been mentioned yet. That or Mirrorweave can give you a one round win if there is something sufficiently nasty on the field to copy. Maybe Soul Foundry or Mimic Vat to pump out copies.

Blue and white are the right colors to BLINK cards. If you blink a clone it comes back as any damn thing you want to copy. You'd need to put in Clone creatures though. Blinking that Duplicant is fun.
