Artifact

, : Copy target triggered ability you control. You may choose new targets for the copy. (A triggered ability uses the words "when," "whenever," or "at.")

Hey, just a heads up, but Clara doesn't work with The 6th Doctor (a lesson I learned after the fact as well).

His ability can only resolve once per turn so "triggers an additional time" effects don't work here but effects that "copy" his trigger do work (i.e. Strionic Resonator/Lithoform Engine).

There're other options to copy his tokens or the spell copy itself like Errant, Street Artist, Esika's Chariot, and Second Harvest too (check my deck's description for a list).

Feel free to check out my list for ideas (and some other pertinent rules technicalities). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Dopplegangbangers - Historic Flash Convoke Copies

Last_Laugh on Doctor Whomst'd've did it?

Just a heads up, but you have several cards in here that due to rules technicalities, don't work with The Sixth Doctor (who is admittedly a rules nightmare). Adrix and Nev, Doubling Season, and Parallel Lives don't work here.

Tokens that are the result of copying a permanent spell aren't "created" and won't cause the above cards to trigger. Rule 111.12 for reference, and it's copied/pasted into my deck's description (link below).

The other thing I learned (the hard way) is that "triggers an additional time" effects like Clara Oswald/Roaming Throne don't work here either since The Dr says his ability only resolves once per turn. You're after effects that "copy" his ability like Strionic Resonator/Lithoform Engine, copy the spell copy like Errant, Street Artist, and/or effects that copy his tokens after the fact like Esika's Chariot/Second Harvest.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas and rule 111.12. I also have a section in my deck description for other options like the above cards for additional tokens as well as untap/flash enablers. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Dopplegangbangers - Historic Flash Convoke Copies

Last_Laugh on Sixth Doctor's doubling

3 weeks ago

Just a heads up, but this Commander pairing has ZERO synergy together. The Sixth Doctor is a rules nightmare and I'll list what I've learned.

First, Clara Oswald says your Doctor triggers an additional time but the Dr.'s ability can only resolve once (so no Elesh Norn MoM or The Roaming Throne either). You're after effects that "copy" his triggered ability or his spell copy like Strionic Resonator, Errant, Street Artist, and Lithoform Engine. Alternatively, you can copy his tokens after the fact with Romana II (the partner I personally use) and/or Second Harvest.

Second, tokens that are the result of copying a permanent spell aren't "created" and Adrix and Nev, Ojer Taq (and the rest of that ilk like Parallel Lives/Doubling Season) won't net you any additional tokens (rule 111.12, which I have copied/pasted into my deck's description). This also applies to a lot of other stuff like Bennie Bracks, Zoologist, so watch card's wording carefully.

Third (and also part of rule 111.12), your tokens from the Dr. have a cmc that matches whatever it's a copy of. This means you can Neoform sac'ing a token and have the cmc counted (as an example).

Feel free to check out my list for ideas and Rule 111.12. My deck also focuses on Flash and Untap enablers so I can take advantage of these "once per turn" abilities on each player's turn instead of once per round.

CloudKillerJay on Strionic Resonator + Search tor …

Ok super thanks. If I hadn't been walked through how to play over 25yrs ago I would never be able to learn now lol. I wanted to check coz Strionic Resonator is a tricky card to get your head around when you struggle with wording. Thanks again.

So can Strionic Resonator copy the removal of a counter and when the last counter is removed to copy the spell? The way I read it "when the last counter is removed cast it for no mana", so I should be able to do it twice, yeah? Sorry, I'm dyslexic, so struggle with the wording sometimes.

Thanks

OUT: Evolutionary Escalation, Strionic Resonator, Taurean Mauler

IN: Halana and Alena, Partners, Arwen, Weaver of Hope, Lae'zel, Vlaakith's Champion

Mauler is a single, slow burn creature with no evasion (unlike the Managorger Hydra already in the list).

The Evolutionary Escalation was a big target and doesn't provide any protection (unlike the Agitator Ant or Orzhov Advokist already in the list).

And Strionic Resonator could be good, but has limited use in this version of the deck.

Each replacement should help keep my deck moving along better than what I took out.

Mr. Orfeo will only double the power of one target creature per combat.

If you have something like Roaming Throne, Isshin, Two Heavens as One, or Strionic Resonator in play, you could potentially get additional Orfeo triggers, and double the power of additional target creatures beyond the first.

Just a heads up. Doubling Season, Adrix & Nev, and any other effects you have that care specifically about a token being created have ZERO synergy with the 6th Dr. (but they do work with Romana). Tokens that are the result of copying a permanent spell are treated more like clones that copy everything they can including cmc but they aren't "created" like a typical token. Rule 111.12 for reference (or you can check my deck's description, link below).

You're after effects that either trigger your Dr. additional times or that copy his tokens after the fact. Things like Strionic Resonator, Lithoform Engine, Esika's Chariot, Roaming Throne, Clara Oswald, etc.

Flash and untap enablers are also pretty bonkers with the Dr. since he'll make a copy every turn you cast a historic. I also have a list of flash, untap, and trigger/token copiers in my deck's description for easy reference.

Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. It's the same color combination and strategy, but I run Peri Brown as my companion. Dopplegangbangers - Historic Flash Convoke Copies
