Swebb87 on Attack phase - interaction & …

Sorry for the long question: in a game recently played, there were 3 of us left. Will describe what happened in turn order etc

Player 1 declared attacks on player 2 for lethal combat damage (player 2 had no blockers) and declared attack on player 3 (the creature attacking was Greensleeves, Maro-Sorcerer equipped with Staff of Titania and made unlockable with a Suspicious Bookcase.

Player 2 declared no response to the attack, player 3 then cast an Abrade targeting the Staff of Titania which would have saved their life, in response to the Abrade, player 2 cast Counterspell ensuring that the damage was enough to be lethal, thus player 1 won the game.

The question is: is what player 2 did legal? Had they technically died after declaring no blocks or do they stay in the game as a legal participant until the combat phase has finished?

IMO must includes for draw, control, and a bit of ramp Grappling Hook, Angel of Condemnation, Endless Atlas, Darksteel Mutation, Empowered Autogenerator, Steel Hellkite.

Here are a list of unblockable artifacts that smooth out any voltron play Hot Soup, Prowler's Helm, Whispersilk Cloak, Suspicious Bookcase, Rogue's Passage, Trailblazer's Boots, Manifold Key, Key to the City.

Eloniel Hey Eloniel, thank you for keeping the posts up! I haven't had much time for Magic in the last months, so it became a little quiet here. From your suggestions I like Weathered Sentinels the most. It's pretty cool, that Errant, Street Artist hash flash, but I need to compare it with the cards in the deck, same goes for Suspicious Bookcase. Too bad we could never copy a single spell :D

amarthaler I haven't tested it, but for 6 mana it doesnt seem that good honestly. I'd rather play (something like) Triumph of the Hordes.

IamJesse I have more time for Magic in the coming weeks/months, I promise I will make updates (if necessary)!

Darigaaz Reincarnated is an excellent commander:

If he hits you three times? You die.

Potentially castable on turn 1 with a good draw and the right mana rocks.

Jund Dragon, so tons of support from Red / Green creatures - Urabrask the Hidden for haste, Atarka, World Render for double strike, et cetera.

Rogue's Passage, Manifold Key, Suspicious Bookcase, and he's unblockable... So...

Brutal_B thanks for the comment! I honestly really like Rogue's Passage for the deck! as a land, it would be a bit harder to remove as well. Suspicious Bookcase is super good too, and it would be useful for blocks as a wall, but I'd be a bit hesitant to replace any creature/artifact/enchantment slots in the deck, but I think it could still be quite efficient in the deck.

Thank you for the suggestions, have a great day!

Rogue's Passage and Suspicious Bookcase to make a creature unblockable. Bookcase can be cast out of graveyard as a creature or artifact.
