Sower of Discord Discussion

Archfiend of Depravity, Shadowborn Demon, Indulgent Tormentor, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Spawn of Mayhem, and Sower of Discord all seem like good additions that you're missing.

I think generally you'd do well to remove some of the single-target, specific removal (e.g. Eliminate, Terminate) as I find those cards weak in commander, and also lower your average CMC.

Overall, looks fun! Glad to see you have Liliana's Contract in the list, I remember when I first saw that card and this is the perfect place for it.

I wasn't reading the cards closely enough. Sower of Discord doesn't have an "enters the battlefield" trigger. You choose the players right before Sower actually enters the battlefield.

Sower of Discord triggers when damage is dealt. The damage from Warstorm Surge isn't dealt until after that trigger resolves.

So, let's say you play a 2/2. Warstorm triggers and deals 2 damage to any target. If you deal damage to a player chosen with Sower, Sower will trigger and cause the other to lose 2 life.

The example above also works when Sower enters the battlefield because the ability where you choose players isn't an ETB. When an effect does some "as [it] enters the battlefield", that happens before it exists on the battlefield. This is a type of replacement effect.

Lastly and for future reference, when multiple triggers that you control are getting up on the stack you get to order them as you wish. So, if Sower had an ETB trigger isn't of it's replacement effect, you could stack the triggers so that you pick players and then deal damage from Warstorm.

Hope this helps!!

Assuming you control both Warstorm Surge and Sower of Discord (since Warstorm Surge only works for your creatures), you get to choose which trigger resolves first.

If two triggers controlled by the same player are trying to go onto the stack at the same time, that player decides what order to put them in. If they're controlled by different players then the active player (the player whose turn it is) puts theirs on first and the other players put theirs on top of it in turn order. That means the active player's trigger will resolve last.

With Warstorm Surge, any creature entering the battlefield deals damage to any target equal to its power. Would Sower of Discord's effect trigger before or after Warstorm?
