Sower of Temptation

Creature — Faerie Wizard

Flying

When Sower of Temptation enters the battlefield, gain control of target creature as long as Sower of Temptation remains on the battlefield.

This is the best I could come up with. Bring to Light is a little awkward game 1, but in games 2/3 when I can find a silver bullet of some kind, it is much better. I wish it worked with Mosswort Bridge, but we can't have everything. I ended up cutting Karn's Sylex + Chalice of the Void to make space for the "Bring to Light silver bullets" as they were my two weakest links in the sideboard.

Surprisingly, with Threats Undetected I've found myself going for:

Elvish Reclaimer
Omnath, Locus of Creation
Dryad of the Ilysian Grove
Primeval Titan

instead of Cultivator Colossus in a lot of situations, since Elvish Reclaimer almost always manafixes me into Omnath, Locus of Creation with something like Boros Garrison when I know they are going to avoid Dryad of the Ilysian Grove and Primeval Titan.

Honestly, I think I am trying to accomplish too much and should pick Bring to Light or Threats Undetected to run, but I like the idea of both and they have decent enough synergy with the other cards I need to include.

I did come up with some other "options" for Bring to Light, the best of which is The Gitrog Monster, followed closely by Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip (Phyrexian Obliterator + Arena or sneaky tech like Sower of Temptation being honorable mentions).

I'm a little lighter on basic Forests than I would like, so I'll probably end up cutting something to add them back in a little, as 2 is the bare minimum I am comfortable with.

I think Omnath, Locus of Creation with Threats Undetected or The Gitrog Monster with Bring to Light is the correct answer, but I'm going to keep trying to squeeze in both paths for now.

meecht on How does donating a creature …

1 month ago

I'm building an EDH deck for Jon Irenicus, Shattered One and I want to make sure I understand how donation and mind control effects interact.

Situation A: I use Sower of Temptation to steal a creature from Player A.
1. If I use Jon's ability to donate the creature to Player B then Sower leaves the battlefield, does Player A get their creature back?
2. If I donate both Sower and the effected creature to Player B, then Sower leaves the battlefield, does Player A get their creature back?

Situation B: I use Reins of Power to trade creatures with Player C.
1. If I donate one of the creatures to Player A, does Player C get their creature back at the end of turn?

Situation C: I use Shield Broker to steal a creature from Player B.
1. If I donate the creature to Player C who then removes the shield counter, does Player B get their creature back?

Banewhip Punisher feels lackluster but I've never tried it.

Dominus of Fealty is a good card but even with the most optimized manabase he'll be stuck in your hand until you have 8+ lands out. Sower of Temptation is much easier to cast and is a wizard.

Flesh-Eater Imp will paint a target on your back and doesn't fit the theme.

Other than those 3, things look pretty cohesive.

Very nice. A buddy is working on a Brago EDH as well. Sower of Temptation might make a good fit for this deck

Correct me if Im wrong, but if you blink one of the creatures stolen by Sower of Temptation, can you then not have to worry about returning control of that creature back to your opponent if the Sower leaves play?

Only 6 of your 32 creatures have flying, excluding Warden of Evos Isle . I'd say maybe find some more fliers to make it worth it, or swap the warden with another wizard. Some alternatives could be Archaeomancer , Nimble Obstructionist , or Sower of Temptation .

Daedalus19876 on To Drown the World in Death: Araumi EDH [PRIMER]

Kaeladin: Heya! Lemme try and answer all your questions :) Welcome to the best format in Magic -- and I'm glad my primer could inspire you!

1) This deck can do fine in a "no infinite combos" meta, though it depends what precisely that definition entails. I would shift the deck to have more "staxy" elements (so re-adding Ashen-Skin Zubera and Burglar Rat , etc), and focus on killing via Gray Merchant of Asphodel lines (with potentially a few extra clones). However, the deck DOES aim towards infinite combos in its current iteration, and avoiding infinite combos will tend to make you more commander-reliant, which also means you'll need more counters and protection. Note that the wheel + Hullbreacher lines aren't "infinite" but still might make people angry XD

2) The "Fresh Fish For Cheap" list cut most of the $20+ cards, and that's the best place I'd start with. I haven't updated that list, but Araumi hasn't gotten many new toys in Kaldheim/Strixhaven. The biggest additions from MH2 which I want to test are Unmarked Grave , Persist , and Dauthi Voidwalker -- which all should be cheap-ish, I believe. Apart from Hullbreacher and potentially Entomb (which I'd highly suggest keeping), everything above $20 in this list can be cut immediately, without any big problems -- run basics over fetches, and perhaps a few more Fleshbag Marauder effects. Oriq Loremage is great, as is Mystic Reflection .

3) Hrm. The biggest thing is that Araumi can be built in a thousand different ways -- she works well with just about any good ETB creature XD You could do things like include Gyruda, Doom of Depths or Sower of Temptation to steal more cards, clones to double up on good spells, etc. I would emphasize cards which says "for each opponent, do X" or "for each X you control", which "multiply" well with multiple copies. Sac outlets too, especially if you cut Phyrexian Altar -- maybe Legion Vanguard ? I hope this helps, Araumi is SUPER open ended and you can tune her to basically use whatever creatures you enjoy!

Please let me know if there's any other questions you have!
