dnthymamai on Choosing to blink an incoming …

4 months ago

Hi guys. I didn't know to phrase it exactly in the title, but my question is this: Say I have God-Eternal Oketra as a Commander and I want to make a bunch of 4/4's. I don't have anything else in play yet, only Oketra. In my hand, there exist two creatures that blink other creatures, and both have flash.

Jeskai Barricade and Rescuer Chwinga (not the all-star Whitemane Lion).

Can I :

1) Cast Jeskai Barricade and choose nothing (yet) for the target of the triggered ability, because I will maintain priority, and "we are not there yet, I have more to do".

2) Maintaining priority, cast Rescuer Chwinga and let it enter the battlefield.

3) Now, two triggered abilities exist of the stack, that want to blink another creature.

4) Choose the two protagonists, one with the ability of the other.

5) Profit?? :-D

Can it be done, or must I quickly choose a target for the first triggered ability when I resolve the first creature?

Thank you!!

I would recommend adding Aluren so you can get an infinite number of casts off on cards that bounce themselves, like Whitemane Lion or Kor Skyfisher, then getting out every plains/forest in your deck in one turn.

Love it. Why no Scute Swarm or Tireless Tracker? Also, this might be an unusual option, but I like Turntimber Basilisk in this deck specifically. Lastly, Vandalblast.
Also unsure why you have Whitemane Lion or Zendikar's Roil or Primeval Bounty or Inspiring Leader or Retreat to Kazandu.
Wouldn't Retreat to Emeria or Felidar Retreat have anthem-like effects in this deck?

AstroAA on Need help with Karametra God …

I used to play Karametra, God of Harvests as somewhat of a storm commander. She wasn't storm in the typical sense of building up to something like Grapeshot, but was built off of abusing Paradox Engine back when it wasn't banned to get infinite mana off of tapping and untapping mana dorks into using Whitemane Lion and Temur Sabertooth to recast Craterhoof Behemoth an arbitrarily large number of times. I've since rebuilt the list, but it doesn't work nearly as well as it did.

Now, it's based off of abusing Aluren to cast Whitemane Lion-esque cards an infinite amount of times. Then, paired with Cloudstone Curio, casting cards like Wall of Blossoms or Hanged Executioner an arbitrarily large number of times because you can get an additional bounce off of a Whitemane Lion cast with the Cloudstone Curio.

My list can be found here, but keep in mind - it's very outdated and I don't really intend on updating it.

It's been a long time since I've had my Karametra deck intact, but she's a really fun commander to build around! Landfall is super good with her, also cards like Whitemane Lion and Temur Sabertooth to bounce your creatures to hand for recasting are really good with the deck.

She can grab any plains/forest, so Mistveil Plains is amazing with her- don't forget to include others!

There's also the enchantress route, but based on your experience, I think you were playing a more creature-based build. Enchantresses are cool in that you can draw cards like no tomorrow, but the shell is quite expensive.

Once you have a list, feel free to tag me in the comments or link it here, I'd love to help more! :)


multimedia on Cloudblazer or Inspiring Overseer?

Whitemane Lion and/or Stonecloaker and/or Venser, Shaper Savant to repeatedly trigger Chulane on opponent turns without needing a flash enabler. Venser can also be a wincon with Panharmonicon + Peregrine Drake, you have both.

Aether Channeler, choose from three different modes including draw a card, that's better than Inspiring Overseer. With 40 lands, Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a better 5 drop for draw/life than Cloudblazer. Cloudblazer needs a lot of extra mana/spell/effect to get repeatable value out of it, Tatyova just a land. You have Mulldrifter, don't need Cloudblazer.

multimedia on Is Vizier of the Menagerie …

Yes, that's enough creatures to get consistent value from Vizier of the Menagerie.

Vizier is better for your deck than Skyward Eye Prophets which is too much mana for what it does. Skyward could be replaced by Whitemane Lion? Whiteman lets you trigger Chulane many times because it can bounce itself, even on opponent turns because it has flash.

Whitemane Lion and Shrieking Drake are some creature reasons to play Vizier of the Menagerie because you want all white or all blue mana to keep casting these creatures to keep triggering Chulane.

TypicalTimmy on When You Get a Deck …

I enjoy building big ole stupid Timmy decks but every once in a while I love to reign them in and home them into perfection. Cut through the swath of Timmy trap cards and build true synergy where each piece is not only deadly on its own, but their compounded effect together is so brutal and savage that opponents drop one after another in rapid succession.

It's a thing of beauty.

Like when you play Karametra, God of Harvests and you bring out Emancipation Angel for because she costs less with Cloud Key, so you tutor a land and you do this multiple times per turn, churning put multiple tokens from landfall triggers with Rampaging Baloths and Scute Swarm with Anointed Procession in play and making giant tokens with Avenger of Zendikar or drawing a ton of cards with Garruk's Uprising.

Or for more bang for your buck, Jeskai Barricade and Whitemane Lion with, instead of Cloud Key, Oketra's Monument and now you get 1/1 tokens on top of it all.

As much as I love big dumb decks, a well oiled machine is more of my specialty. I love to solve puzzles, and if I look at the game like a puzzle, it is infinitely more fun for me. Even if (when) I lose, I had so much fun tutoring out literally every single land in my entire deck that I just do not care.

I derive entertainment value and fun from achieving goals, and not necessarily winning :)
