The Prismatic Bridge

Legendary Enchantment

At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature or planeswalker card. Put that card onto the battlefield and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

So, adding Halvar worked but, when I left to check one of my other decks for another two faced card and came back, halvar flipped itself and was in the creature slot as the sword. When I refreshed he was Halvar again lol.

I added both sides of The Prismatic Bridge  Flip and it works as intended, occupying the enchantment slot and creature slot respectively, it also works in a deck I had it in previously.

Just tried adding the Sword again and it's currently added but in the creature slot.

As for the additional Sram, while looking at other decks, it appears the commanders are added in the list of the 99, looks like it's a feature I hadn't noticed previously.

Welcome to the club, BIAxKatana!

Obligatory caveat that I'm not a Commander expert, so I might be missing some details. My first thought on looking at this deck is that there might be too many payoffs and not enough support. While cards like Exploration and Burgeoning are generally good ramp, with only 33 lands, minimal land searching, and not much repeatable draw, I don't expect this deck to get more than a couple of extra land drops each match.

How reliable are Fist of Suns and Jodah, Archmage Eternal for you? They combo well with Morophon, the Boundless, so how quickly can you get them and a full color suite active? Is it better to play Esika, God of the Tree  Flip or The Prismatic Bridge  Flip?

There could be some bad interactions between your counterspells and Mana Maze. Mana Maze supports your colorless creatures, but unless an opponent is playing heavy , countering one of their spells basically resets Mana Maze.

What is the role of Luxior, Giada's Gift and the assorted Jin-Gitaxias  Flipes?

Gidgetimer on Double-Faced Cards Commander

You needed to continue reading to rule 8 on and consult 712.8a in the comprehensive rules.

"8. Being a commander is not a characteristic [MTG CR109.3], it is a property of the card and tied directly to the physical card. As such, “commander-ness” cannot be copied or overwritten by continuous effects. The card retains it’s commander-ness through any status changes, and is still a commander even when controlled by another player."

712.8a While a double-faced card is outside the game or in a zone other than the battlefield or stack, it has only the characteristics of its front face.

The physical card that is The Prismatic Bridge  Flip is still the same physical card that was Esika, God of the Tree  Flip and was chosen as the commander during deck construction when only the characteristics of the front face were considered. The Gatherer ruling you quoted is in reference to casting Revel in Silence  Flip or Beyeen Veil  Flipat instant speed despite their other sides not being able to be played at instant speed; or playing Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip with a Archon of Valor's Reach out naming artifacts.

I would argue that you can have Esika, God of the Tree  Flip as a commander but the flip slide; The Prismatic Bridge  Flip, cannot be cast as it is a non creature thus barring it from commander status. A commander must be a legendary creature and can be casted from the command zone.

To determine whether it is legal to play a modal double-faced card, consider only the characteristics of the face you're playing and ignore the other face's characteristics.

under rules 1 and 6

1.Players choose a legendary creature as the commander for their deck.

6.Commanders begin the game in the Command Zone. While a commander is in the command zone, it may be cast, subject to the normal timing restrictions for casting creatures...

under rules/modifiers header

...In this casual, multiplayer format, you choose a legendary creature to serve as your commander...

under command zone header

...At the start of the game, each player puts their commander face up into the command zone. A commander can be cast from the command zone for its normal costs...

I interpret this as: if you play the enchantment The Prismatic Bridge  Flip, you ignore the fact that it is attached to the spell Esika, God of the Tree  Flip, which makes the player cast a non creature/non commander spell from the command zone which is an illegal action through virtue of the mtg official site's stated rules.

Full disclosure: I played against this commander last night and was curious as to the rulings regarding dual sided legendary creatures. It could very well be bias on my part against this card in my interpretation as we were decimated by the player.

ImNora on Cards Like Grand Cenobite?

I'm building a The Prismatic Bridge  Flip deck to cheat out creatures. I'm trying to pack the deck with creatures that boost the power/toughness of my other creatures. I've found things like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Pathbreaker Ibex, Blossoming Bogbeast, Kamahl, Heart of Krosa, Zopandrel, Hunger Dominus, Thunderfoot Baloth, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Fiendish Duo, Angrath's Marauders and Necropolis Regent. I also have Blade Historian and Blast-Furnace Hellkite for double strike since it effectively boosts power.

What cards can you think of that I missed?

Thanks, Nora

No specific colors or anything. It's for my The Prismatic Bridge  Flip deck so all five colors are available. It's looking like a lot of the cards with these types of effects are low cost though so cheating out creatures might be overkill. I may have to consider other commanders if there aren't very many high CMC, hard hitters like Ruric Thar, the Unbowed...

I have The Prismatic Bridge  Flip with shroud from Greater Auramancy; can I still use Strionic Resonator to copy the prismatic bridge trigger?

if you're just trying to make a planeswalker deck, i think The Prismatic Bridge  Flip is the best commander.
