Uba Mask Discussion

Tibalt is pretty powerful for sure. But Omen Machine and Weathered Runestone don't interact in the way you seem to assume:

Omen machine exiles the top card, and if it's a non-land, its owner max cast it from exile. Runestone only forbids cards from libraries or graveyards to be cast. This doesn't hit cards from exile.

If you were to do such a thing, Omen Machine and Drannith Magistrate would be your Path to that. You could also add Uba Mask as redundancy for Machine.

One final thing: If Runestone would also forbid casting cards from exile, this would hit Tibalt, as well. As Magistrate only hits opponents, you could however do this in a WRB deck.

Polaris on Blood Scrivener Draw Interaction

2 months ago

To be more precise, you choose the order because you're the one being affected, not because you control the effects.

On to the question: This is going to work differently depending on the order. If you apply Blood Scrivener first, you are now drawing two cards. Uba Mask will apply to both cards you attempt to draw. You will exile two cards face-up and lose 1 life.

If you apply Uba Mask first, it will replace the draw. Since you are no longer drawing a card, Blood Scrivener's replacement effect no longer applies and you will simply exile one card face-up. In this case, there is no way to loop the effects.

Another important point here is that a replacement effect can't apply multiple times to the same action. Preventing yourself from drawing one of the cards after Blood Scrivener's replacement effect will not cause its effect to replace the draw with a "draw two, lose one life" a second time (if replacement effects could apply multiple times, Blood Scrivener would loop infinitely on its own).

Delphen7 on Blood Scrivener Draw Interaction

If I control a Blood Scrivener , and somehow my draw was replaced, say through Uba Mask what would happen?

I'm asking since if I control both I can choose the order they happen in. So I could have Blood Scrivener trigger first, and see I have no cards so then replace the draw with 2. I would have Uba eats the first card, then Blood Scrivener sees I have no cards left for the second card. Would Blood Scrivener then replace this draw with 2 since I have no cards in hand?. The idea would be to forever loop Uba Mask and Scrivener to effectively "draw" my whole deck.

Massacar on Use My Hand? Why?

Uba Mask is the big brain card for this deck. Not only does it allow you to milk triggers from Vega, but it also acts as mill protection.

Urza, Lord High Artificer can act as a mana sink to play from exile.

Oracle's Vault can be a handy cast from exile tool too.

Isochron Scepter/Elite Arcanist can act as a huge engine for this deck. Obviously you can run the combo with Dramatic Reversal, but you can also get value from imprinting other nonbos too.

If you want you can also check out my own list, which is in a more artifact direction, here Vega Finds the Center of the Tootsie-Pop.

Sure thing Massacar. Uba Mask also just came to mind. Since most of your spells are cheap I think it would be pretty powerful alongside Vega, especially since its effect is mostly beneficial to you but detrimental to opponents.

Shared Fate is similar but might be a little too wonky. Would make for a fun finisher though!

Tomorrow is so neat. Possessed Portal is strong with him (you'll get cards thanks to Tom's replacement effect while your opps won't) though it'd definitely draw hate haha.

You might consider these too: Uba Mask (similar to Possessed Portal; only poops on opps while Tom is out), Shared Fate, Zur's Weirding, Temple Bell, Geth's Grimoire, Jace's Archivist, Windfall, Teferi's Ageless Insight, Alhammarret's Archive, Thought Reflection, Worn Powerstone (gets Tom out on turn 4), Coalition Relic, Venser, Shaper Savant
