Torpor Orb


Creatures entering the battlefield don't cause abilities to trigger.

Looter il-Kor and Crystal Shard were pretty good in my Ezuri deck years ago. Crystal Shard isn't seen very often which means you can sometimes bounce an opponent's big play, but it also lets you reuse ETBs on your own creatures.

I also recommend running something like Viridian Zealot or Caustic Caterpillar to get around the occasional Torpor Orb-like effect.

Torpor Orb and Cursed Totem might be a decent way to start if you want to shut down sacrifice strategies. It seems like he would work best as a death and staxes commander.

If you are gonna main deck Blood Moon and not have it as a sideboard option I'd just go all in on a Skred Red control build.

Koth of the Hammer, Snow-Covered Mountain, Scrying Sheets Skred, Mind Stone, Pyrite Spellbomb, Galvanic Blast, Relic of Progenitus, Torpor Orb, Trinisphere.

How about cutting Ichor Rats for Torpor Orb and Corpse Cur for Leyline of the Void?

Exploit is an ETB trigger (Sidisi, Undead Vizier), it is stopped by Torpor Orb.

Riot is a replacement effect (Frenzied Arynx), it is not stopped by Torpor Orb.

Constellation is an ETB trigger Doomwake Giant itself entering is stopped by Torpor Orb.

The Meathook Massacre entering triggering Doomwake Giant is not stopped by Torpor Orb because The Meathook Massacre is not a creature.

Assuming that you don't have devotion Erebos, Bleak-Hearted entering triggering Doomwake Giant is not stopped by Torpor Orb because Erebos is not a creature.

1- Torpor Orb vs Riot, Exploit---does it stop both abilities?

My guess is stops Exploit, but not riot.

2-Orb vs Doomwake Giant, and Erebos, Bleak-Hearted entering the battlefield.

My guess is stops the DW Giant trigger, won't stop a pure enchantment triggering DW G?

As an additional note, Amulet Titan is a super hard deck to play, so it will take some time for you to understand what position you're in at any given time. If you're friends with the pilot of that deck, it may help your matchup to ask him to walk you through some lines to really understand when things get dangerous.

As for the 4C Pile, it's really mostly just a value deck. Most likely it will end up being pretty grindy. I'm sure you've figured this out by now, but Torpor Orb is very very good against them because of how many of the Incarnations they play. If you can stick a Sundering Titan, the game is also probably over, because of their greedy 4C manabase.

Grats on the top 8!
