The Chain Veil

Legendary Artifact

At the beginning of your end step, if you didn't activate a loyalty ability of a planeswalker this turn, you lose 2 life.

{4}, {T}: For each planeswalker you control, you may activate one of its loyalty abilities once this turn as though None of its loyalty abilities have been activated this turn.

Sure -

Turn 1) Mana: Ideally two rocks like Mana Crypt and Sol Ring with a land like Command Tower or City of Brass

Turn 2) Doubling Season or another mana rock like Gilded Lotus with a Deepglow Skate in hand

Turn 3) Drop a walker like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or Karn Liberated or Tamiyo, Field Researcher or Tezzeret, Artifice Master or Teferi, Temporal Archmage. - At this point, depending on Turn 2, you would ult one of them or use a + ability and pass

Turn 4) Ult your walker and hope for a hit. Ideally: - You'd either be restarting the game with Karn Liberated, using the + ability you had to give an advantage on whatever was exiled. - Using Ugin, the Spirit Dragon to play Teferi, Temporal Archmage and The Chain Veil for infinite Ugin, the Spirit Dragon + ability triggers to kill - Using Tezzeret, Artifice Master to search for the last combo piece, usually Teferi, Temporal Archmage or The Chain Veil to hit infinite mana, draw, and loyalty activation (depending on play, this would technically result in a turn 5 win) - Using Tamiyo, Field Researcher to draw and using her Omniscience ability to play one of the other previously listed walkers, ulting them, and winning through those lines.

Hope this helps!

Good looking deck so far nice job! some possible addition you can consider is The Chain Veil, since you have a decent amount of planeswalkers. It is on the pricey side, around 10$-15$ but decent for the amount of planeswalkers you have. In terms of demons Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire really good for his "Tutor" ability for about 3$ you can use his power to find any card you want and put it on the top of your library. Some good draw engines you can use that are cheap, is Altar's Reap 2 drop for only 0.15, Read the Bones, and Night's Whisper. Finally is some good removal Feed the Swarm, and Go for the Throat. I hope these help, or at least gives you some ideas.

Another consequence is that it won't die for having 0 loyalty, though it will for being a 0/0 unless it has a different counter or source of toughness. It also can't benefit from things like The Chain Veil or Kasmina, Enigma Sage.

See rule 10 here. https://mtgcommander.net/index.php/rules/

In commander specifically the assumption most random people will have when building decks based on the rules is that Wish effects like that just don't work.

So with Mastermind's Acquisition, the first effect works, the second doesn't.

To get the effect you seem to be looking for, multiple copies of Vorinclex, try Mirror Gallery, Mirror Box, Helm of the Host, and Rite of Replication.

Lithoform Engine, Rings of Brighthearth, and Yarok, the Desecrated can all be used to abuse things with Proliferate. With all those extra loyalty counters you'll be rolling in, the The Chain Veil seems like it belongs in here too. Especially since it gives all your walkers an extra activation, not just one.

Some other stuff to replace your wishes with would be Search for Glory, and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. Those not only work for Vorinclex, but they will also get most of your Planeswalkers, Helm of the Host, and Lithoform Engine.

Also, Fist of Suns seems like a great combo with that commander.

Thanks jaymc1130! One of the guys in my playgroup usually convinces the others to attack my PWs when he is clearly ahead in the game and I have a small handful of cards and only a few permanents. And I appreciate the Alela vote, as I know you're quite the pro at those types of decks.

It's funny though, because I just had the most epic game with it this afternoon. I've never imagined activating Ugin, the Spirit Dragon so many times. I was definitely on track to win, especially when my final opponent finally conceded, especially as I had three extra turns more. It was a true Rube Goldberg board though, which was fun and he was having as much fun watching it as I was. That's the other problem though, when its not a clear infinite combo and you are just running long, non-linear turns to pull the win some players love it but others are annoyed. And with Aminatou, The Chain Veil and a bunch of Planeswalkers that's likely to be the way to win. Its fun and much harder than simpler combos to win, but some people despise long turns so it isn't for all play environments. My favorite is using Wishclaw Talisman to get whatever I want and then blinking it with Aminatou to get it back. I hope I can find a way to play "The Monkey's Paw" in another esper deck.

Nissa, Who Shakes the World and Heroic Intervention is also a super fun deck.

I have (online) a $4,000 Kiora, Master of the Depths and Karn's Temporal Sundering deck that produces both infinite turns and infinite mana.

Tezzeret the Seeker can easily go infinite with The Chain Veil and if you have Dramatic Reversal, it's just insane.

Sorin Markov and Toxic Deluge is disgustingly efficient.

Ooh... Okay so I know it already has a card, but I'm using the name since I can't think of another name for it. Sorry.


The Chain Veil

Legendary Artifact - Equipment

Loyalty abilities of equipped Planeswalker cost an additional +1 to activate.

You may activate abilities of the equipped Planeswalker an additional time during each of your turns.

Equip Planeswalker


Big cost for big reward. I wonder how R&D works with this... If you equip your Planeswalker, activate twice, blink TCV and re-equip, can you activate a third time?

What if you have 12 mana and two walkers? When attached to, say, a Jace and you activate twice, can move to a Tezzeret and activate twice, then move back to Jace for a 3rd time?

OG TCV is still better, but this fulfilled the challenge so there ya go.
