Spellweaver Eternal

Creature — Zombie Naga Wizard


Afflict 2

9-lives on Spellweaver Eternal and Harmonic Prodigy

4 weeks ago

Will Spellweaver Eternal be caused by Harmonic Prodigy to trigger its afflict ability twice?

I've decided to not run green with my jeskai. I was going to add Lure in the case of Spellweaver Eternal working against multiple blockers in its afflict ability. But the rules say that can't happen.

Here's my deck so far:

Dang. I was hoping to use Spellweaver Eternal with a lure effect in order to deal maximum damage with many blockers in its afflict effect, but apparently afflict can only target one blocker. ]:<

I've used Ionize and Essence Backlash more than intended. Archmage Emeritus with Harmonic Prodigy has been great in drawing up to four cards with one instant per turn. Drawing power is definitely something not to be denied. Spellweaver Eternal is basically a burn card against blocking, but still great. I have generally been able to take my opponents into long games of attrition. Gonna try out my skill at the next FNM with this deck and see how it fares.

I'll define aikido as follows:

  1. Receiving damage, then dealing damage; exempli gratia: Deflecting Palm, Boros Reckoner.

  2. Causing damage through combat by using a defense against them; exempli gratia: Spellweaver Eternal, Eternal of Harsh Truths.

  3. Preventing spells and dealing damage through this prevention; exempli gratia: Ionize, Essence Backlash.

Do you see the common thread in this? It's that there is a transformation of receiving damage into dealing damage, or preventing damage into doing damage, or if the opponent prevents damage then causing that damage. This is essentially the aikido martial art's goal. Aikido doesn't deal direct damage like a burn deck. It seeks to simply transform damage.

I know that in order to be useful as an archetype it has to be literally a useful gameplay. Although, the cards Boros Reckoner, especially when paired with Gideon's Sacrifice, and Deflecting Palm have won me a few games alone, and I've only played a few games with a burn deck and my testudo deck. The two former are excellent when someone becomes too cocky and swings with all (s)he's got. However, a archetype will not always be the best, just ilke a defense-to-damage deck is very difficult to play.

Welcome to the club! For this deck, I'm not sold on Spellweaver Eternal. I would switch it for something like Soul-Scar Mage, which also gives you another one-drop. I would also suggest some more card draw/filtering, along the lines of Expressive Iteration. Opt and Serum Visions also could work, depending on how much money you're willing to spend.

It's nice in mechanics, design, but the flavor text couldn't be more off. Just look at the text on Sparring Mummy or Those Who Serve. Zombies on Amonkhet, especially the white ones, are substitutes for normal people so that the normal people can train for the Trials. The Trials turned out to be selections for the most powerful warriors to be zombified and coated with Lazotep, so that they could cross the Planar Bridge (which could not transport living matter) to fight in the War of the Spark. Zombies created from Trials winners are blue/black ( Spellweaver Eternal / Lazotep Reaver). If you failed the Trials, you'd get mummified into a servant ( Those Who Serve). But death was always the end of your Trials.

4x Spellweaver Eternal + 4x Umara Entangler with 28 creatures and only 8 noncreature spells is not good
