I would recommend Shamble Back, it is way better than Vile Rebirth it gains life and is also essentially the same card just better. Also with all of these planeswalkers I would recommend either or both Demonic Tutor to get out one of your combos, The Chain Veil is also great.

Dude, Idk if you want to make this a superfriends deck, but Atraxa is great for that. Try cards like Tezzeret the Seeker (plus cards like Rings of Brighthearth and The Chain Veil), or Ajani Steadfast. Or you could straight up put hydras in the deck and make it a stompy creature deck. If you want to do that, try searching "hydras" on scryfall, and adding cards like Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Hydra's Growth, or The Ozolith. Cards with infect like Triumph of the Hordes, or Blightsteel Colossus go pretty great as well, because you can proliferate the -1/-1 counters or poison counters!

So i’ve finally played some more multiplayer games. The deck’s working how i wanted too. The mana worked, there’s enough mana sinks and enough ramp. I’ve had situations come up where i couldn’t really proliferate anything while i had 2 contagion engines ready to go, but i think that’s more of an anomaly. Keeping the planeswalkers alive has been tricky. As long as they provide their value a little bit and die though, the win can follow from dropping Liliana or one of the bigger walkers, immediately being able to ult and then win that way.

Deepglow Skate is bonkers.

Tezzeret the Seeker is bonkers.

Saheeli, Sublime Artificer is bonkers.

The Chain Veil is bonkers, pretty much as expected.

Lithoform Engine is fun, and if you have the mana can go nuts. It’s unfortunate that most permanents you’d like to copy are legendary. It’s been great on all fronts though, all uses were great.

Considering the following:

  • Chandra, Flamecaller is an on-theme pseudo wrath, especially after proliferating a bit. Self “wheeling” is nice too.

  • Nevinyrral's Disk kills a lot of important pieces on our side but is a great way to keep walkers on the board with few ways to have them pressured afterwards

Snuff Out i haven’t ordered yet, but will probably go in

I haven’t looked at the new set in detail but there’s some interesting cards:

Any other ideas are very welcome, let me know!

Massacar on Yawgmoth Proliferate

Since you've got so many planeswalkers and you're going a proliferation route I think The Chain Veil might be a good fit for you.

Also K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for mana purposes.

Thanks for taking the time to go through the list RNR_Gaming!

Dack Fayden and Jace, the Mind Sculptor are unfortunately a bit above budget currently, but who knows when i may be able to trade for them.

Daretti, Scrap Savant might just be good enough. It’s also pretty nice to rechr somethjng like Contagion Engine or The Chain Veil when necessary.

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver seems pretty underwhelming and provides no real value when she’s killed before she can put something into play. Since Daveslab2022 confirms though: what am i missing? Or is it mostly just a fun card that can get something silly out 10% of the time?

Jace, Cunning Castaway is really nice with Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God but does exactly nothing otherwise, right? Or do you think the 2/2s are an OK backup plan?

PS: I just realized there’s a sick 4-way combo: Tezzeret the Seeker, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, The Chain Veil, Sol Ring (or other 2 mana artifact): this is infinite planeswalker activations for every other planeswalker on the board, and at the very least a chandra ultimate! Nice :D

kingtuf on Artifact Copying

It's true that Spark Double would give you another use of a planeswalker's ability but if your goal is to make tokens of it, it still runs into the same problem. Turning all your tokens into a copy of Spark Double means that all of the tokens are 0/0 illusions that die as state based actions. But a wincon consisting of a huge planeswalker army is still well within reach!

We probably all know about Jace, Cunning Castaway's interaction with Doubling Season. If he ults with Doubling Season on the board, he makes two copies of himself each of who can do it again. You end up with infinite Jaces. If you have Oath of Gideon or Oath of Teferi/The Chain Veil on the field, they will either have enough loyalty to create 2/2 creatures (in the case of the former) or will be ready to create 2/2 creatures next turn (in the case of the latter.) Infinite tokens are pretty decent for our pal, Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer dontcha think? But who wants to win with creatures attacking anyways? If we wanted that we just play Selesnya or something. Why not throw in another card to win in a truly glorious fashion? A card that you already run in your deck! Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God on the field with the two aforementioned cards (Jace and Doubling Season) allows you to make infinite Nicol Bolas! If you have Oath of Teferi out, you can +1 them all at once, exiling everything on the opponent's battlefields and from in the opponent's hands. Come to think of it, that dragon dunce should've just done this during War of the Spark... but I digress. I think that those might be some fun combos for you to look into! Also it's important to remember that Bolas doesn't just have to use his own +1. That wins the game, sure, but if you wanna be flashy, he can use the loyalty abilities of any other walker you have out! Draw your library and drain everyone with Sorin, Grim Nemesis, dragonbomb the shit out of everyone with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, gain infinite life with Ajani, Strength of the Pride, same turn token storm with Chandras One and Two, empty hands with Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage or Karn Liberated, gain infinite mana with Teferi, Temporal Archmage or Domri, Anarch of Bolas and if you really want to stick to the big, bad dragon then literally every single Bolas walker wins the game on the spot. Now that's a flashy superfriends pop off!

You can even cheat out pieces of the combo with cards like Deploy the Gatewatch, Academy Rector, Arena Rector and my personal favorite Planebound Accomplice.

I hope you dig this path, I know the point was to do some Brudiclad shenanigans to go infinite but I'll be damned if this isn't a close second on the coolness scale!

This makes perfect sense; I thought it was the same way. It would be very uncharacteristic for a character like Nahiri to need to be "rehabilitated" back to plain White mana.

I provide, for an example, Garruk; Garruk Wildspeaker to Garruk Relentless  Flip

This perfectly sums up the events that transpired between he and Liliana: Liliana finally gets her mitts on the The Chain Veil. She curses him, causing a traditionally black effect, cursing him, and altering his color identity. It isn't until the events of Eldraine that Garruk is freed from this curse, as Dog. (Lol, Oko, Thief of Crowns, you cheeky cunt.) i.e Garruk, Cursed Huntsman.

Ultimately, I believe Nahiri will just be plain white again, provided she isn't still pissed at the ol Vampire Dude.

Btw, I loved Stone and Blood. Lovely writing to add to the void left in the set. As much as I love FSM, (Emrakul, the Promised End) it was nice to have Nahiri's perspective during the set other than her directly mentioned cards.
