Rules Q&A

Squee, Goblin Nabob

Legendary Creature — Goblin

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return Squee, Goblin Nabob from your graveyard to your hand.

legendofa on Grave Infestation

3 weeks ago

Welcome to the club, CaptainGuppy! As I see it, the plan is to use Squee, Goblin Nabob, Master of Death, Genesis, and Stinkweed Imp to fuel Zombie Infestation and Cryptbreaker. If this is right, I'm not sure Bastion of Remembrance and Feaster of Fools are quite right for this deck.

Since your return-from-graveyard-to-hand creatures can only recur themselves at your upkeep/draw step, and since Cryptbreaker is a mana+tap effect, I expect this deck to be putting out maybe 2-3 Zombie tokens each turn, at best. I would suggest focusing on making those tokens bigger and better. Diregraf Captain would be a replacement for Bastion, and something like Corpse Cobble for Feaster. Corpse Cobble also has flashback, so it can be discarded to Infestation and still be used. Cemetery Reaper is another source of Zombies that can eat your opponents' graveyard.

Genesis feels a little redundant; its most worthwhile target is the Cryptbreaker. If you like the effect, maybe try Wonder.

Squee, Goblin Nabob

He can be the cost of your commanders effect once per turn. Just a suggestion.

Wuzibo on Questioning the Iona Banning

6 months ago

Hello.

I took a few year hiatus from the game. One of the last things I did was pick up an Iona, Shield of Emeria for my kaalia deck.

Upon returning to the game, i have learned she has been banned from the format. Ok, fair enough, she is quite strong.

But then I looked up why she was banned. "Because locking mono-colored people out of the game isn't fair/in the spirit of the format/whatever."

Bullshit. Pure bullshit. She should be unbanned or Leyline of the Void and Rest in Peace should be banned because they completely lock out a mono-red artifact/graveyard player. I used to play daretti. The whole reason I switched to Kaalia was because of Leyline of the void and Rest in Peace coupled with the fact that mono-red doesn't have enchantment removal, which simply stopped me from playing my deck with no recourse. I played Daretti, Scrap Savant but Feldon of the Third Path, Squee, Goblin Nabob and Squee, the Immortal, and Heiko Yamazaki, the General all are similarly just boned hard with no recourse by it.

"But you can still Introduction to Annihilation, Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, or Scour from Existence it."

Ok, yeah, and the mono-colored player could do that to Iona. Or, they could run Mycosynth Lattice and make everything colorless so she becomes irrelevant. So why is she banned?

There is literally no justification for Iona being banned that doesn't also justify the banning of other cards.

"It's unfun"

So is sire of insanity and being slaverlocked and stax.

"It prevents players from getting to play the game"

So do the enchantments i mentioned above, sire of insanity, and slaverlocking. So does stax.

"It's overpowered"

Yeah, so is everything with annihilator.

At the very least, Leyline of the void should be banned until they print a mono-red enchantment removal card because it makes it so mono-red graveyard decks don't get to actually play their deck and get to only play a half assed gimped version of it, and it can start the game on the board. This is exactly why they said they banned iona. "its not in the spirit of the game to basically lock one mono-colored player out of the game". Except theyre not "locked out". They can still play lands and colorless artifacts and try to find a land based or artifact based answer to Iona. Same as me with my daretti deck when the game started with Leyline of the Void out. Sure, i couldn't use my graveyard stuff, and even if i ulted my commander, it wouldn't do anything, so i might as well not play him, but i can still just hardcast all my artifacts and stuff.. You couldn't cheat out iona turn 1. You can't put RIP out turn 1. Leyline can be on the board turn zero, so there isn't even an argument that the red deck should be winning before leyline hits the field. So like, Iona doesn't actually lock a mono-colored player out of the game. It just feels that way. The same as permanent enchantment based graveyard hate does to mono-red.

Also, Iona should be unbanned, because according to most people mono-white is the worst commander color, so Mono-white needs something strong, or they should follow their reasoning for the ban to its logical conclusion and ban a bunch of other stuff. If they had just banned her for a generic "she's too strong" i would have accepted it, but they didn't. They gave a reason that is the exact reason I found playing Mono-red graveyard artifacts no fun at all.

Just Reban "painter's servant".

Mountainmammoth on Strefan the Bloody [primer]

Your collection is impressive. Here are some suggestions that I hope will improve your list.

Olivia's Attendants creates 6 blood every time they attack, which is an amazing as a set up for dockside extortionist

Twilight Prophet is dirty with Strefan. Draw an extra card each friendly upkeep and if it has a cost more than zero, damage each opponent so you get three blood per turn and gain life too. Plus strefan’s blood tokens make getting city’s blessing a snap.

Ghirapur AEther Grid. You will be creating a lot of artifacts (blood and treasure) and being able to tap them in pairs to damage either players or problem creatures can give you an edge while you are building a critical mass of artifacts for krark or inspiring statuary and torment of hellfire.

Olivia, Crimson Bride is a Rakdos vampire that Strefan can cheat on to the table. Essential does a similar thing to Strefan only she cheats on any creature from your graveyard instead of vampires from you hand. Great way to recur dockside extortionist or anything else you discard with blood tokens/lose to spot removal.

Squee, Goblin Nabob is fantastic with blood as you can discard him and redraw him from the graveyard once per friendly upkeep. That can turn a blood per turn into card advantage.

Anger is also amazing with blood tokens. You can use the blood to discard anger, draw a card and give all of your creatures haste. Strefan doing his combat trick the turn you recast him can be clutch.

I would consider adding Nirkana Revenant back in as it works really well with Urborg, tomb of yawgmoth and can also give you extra mana for your cost X spells.

I don’t see a ton of synergy between Strefan and the Exquisite Blood tricks, but you do have the tutors to make it work even if there isn’t any support from the command zone. If you want to keep those win conditions, consider adding Blood Tribute. Tap a vampire as the kicker and have Vito/sanguine bond in play and you get to straight up remove a player (or all players if you have sengir as well). Great backup play for when exquisite blood gets removed/countered.

You already have one of the pieces for the Worldgorger Dragon combo (animate dead). Add in a Dance of the Dead and a Necromancy for redundancy and you have a recipe for infinite mana. Just use a blood token to discard the dragon and you are in business. Avacyn's Judgment, discarded with blood and cast for the madness cost can also deal lethal damage to three player with enough mana.

Oooh I like the Junk Kitchen idea. Maybe add Squee, Goblin Nabob for recurring discard fodder?

Mebbe Squee, Goblin Nabob and Squee, the Immortal so you can kill them for tokens over and over.

Stolen Strategy, Homura, Human Ascendant  Flip, Dreamshaper Shaman

After further testing and time to parse through the upcoming Forgotten Realms regular and commander cards, I think you're right about the "discard hand, draw 3" model. While it sometimes works, it takes far too much commitment and loss of control to rely heavily on. I will keep Ox of Agonas as I still think its Escape mode is pretty great, but Anje's Ravager and any others are out. I'm also putting Stinkweed Imp back into the deck because being able to process 5 cards without spending mana, just a draw, is powerful.

I think for now, I should tighten my sources of card advantage. Though it adds a bit more consistency to have more smaller looting cards like Thrill of Possibility or the aforementioned Anje's Ravager , I could just be using those slots for more powerful cards that actually impact the board or are otherwise useful while consolidating the draw power to the heavy hitters like Magus of the Wheel , Vilis, Broker of Blood , or Disciple of Bolas for example. Specific tools and answers will be handled by the tutors I was adding anyway and the general system will be greased with odd cards like Squee, Goblin Nabob and Phyrexian Reclamation .

Everything else needs to be playtested rather than theorized about, but I think it's safe to say this is a core part of the deck that I should reconsider and upgrade. I'd also like to put forward the new Warlock Class as a possible replacement or partner to Archfiend of Despair and the possibility of Heartless Hidetsugu .

I'm also interested in the new Hurl Through Hell , Fevered Suspicion , and Orcus, Prince of Undeath . The former two I'm more optimistic about, and am willing to sacrifice a little reliability for their potential and because they look like a lot of fun, but I suspect Orcus will be one of those cards that look a lot better on paper than in practice.

As always, thanks for your suggestions and consultations. I hope Shenanigans and Hellkite Tyrant have been working for you as they have for me.

Hub suggestions: Drop Chaos, add Turbo Fog

Card suggestions: Ethereal Haze prevents noncombat damage from creatures, if you see Grim Lavamancer or whatever. Elixir of Immortality can replace Blessed Respite , since you have a lot of Fog effects already. I would switch the Pure Intentions with two Leyline of Sanctity in the sideboard.

Solitary Confinement is most useful with Squee, Goblin Nabob , but you don't have any way to assemble that without drawing into it. Similarly, I'm not sure Peace of Mind is doing much for you here.
