Best Play I Have Seen This Year

Commander (EDH) forum

granted this year is only 12 days so far
but in last Saturdays games my buddy Silverbutters made one of the most epic plays!!!
faced off against a Edgar Markov deck poor Silverbutters was taking an onslaught of flying lifelinking vampires to the face every turn!!
but when Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose hit the board Silverbutters immediately recognized the threat
his opponent moved to combat and swung all out for the win.
Silverbutters finally released his tight grip and dropped Chaos Warp targeting Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose
Silverbutters could barely contain his laughter as his opponent freaked out.
after a about 10 mins of arguing and laughter Chaos Warp finally resolved
Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose was placed into the deck, the deck was shuffled, then passed to Silverbutters to be cut, then the top card was flipped and

In the one game I've played in 2021, I attacked with an Armored Skyhunter that had a Prying Blade on it, in my Reyav deck. My commander was out, but my opponent had a flying blocker. The Skyhunter triggered, and I revealed the top 6, 1 by 1... and the last one, after like 5 lands and a Signet, was a Whispersilk Cloak! So I slid it on the Skyhunter and got those sweet, sweet Treasure. Not as cool as yours, RambIe, but it's something :)

So it was me and one dude left in a 4 person pod and I was playing my artifact deck and dude was playing some mono black something-or-other. I had Platinum Angel out and he drops Phage the Untouchable and swings at me with her a couple times over the course of 2-3 turns just for the sake of dealing damage. I top deck Saheeli's Artistry, copy Platinum Angel and Phage. On my next turn I pay into my Rogue's Passage targeting my Phage and swing for the win!

Reading is important...I failed in my response. Quite the gamble with the Phage ETB only protected by the angel token.

Azdranax Platinum Angel is why the token etb was able to resolve

Omniscience_is_life haha I Love It!. but i dont take credit for this play i was in the game but did not respond to any of the events that unfolded it was just to funny to watch

i do have 3 plays i love to tell
last year on my turn 0 i casted Pact of Negation on my buddies turn 1 Sol Ring

thanks giving 2019 in a 10 player game.
I turned 1 Mountain into Sol Ring
turn 2 Mountain & Repercussion
turn 3 Forest, Natural Affinity & then Blasphemous Act
everyone thought it was going to be a long game, one of the people kept saying i don't understand how did i die lmao!!

and i dont remeber if it was 2018 or 2019
i built my Kenrith, the Returned King infinite of infinite deck
in one game my combo went off on turn 4
it gets complicated but its was a 36 card combo that allowed me to move my libary straight to hand or battle field, move my hand to battlefield or grave yard, grave yard to hand or libary, and exile to grave yard
i then looped a spell causing all the players to put all there lands onto the battle field, then milled there decks put all there creatures from graveyard onto play under there control, shuffled there graveyards back into the libary, made them draw all but the last 5 cards of there decks, i then casted Happily Ever After & Teferi's Protection and passed the turn

Ramble how did you turn 3 both Natural Affinity and Blasphemous Act in your example above?

Edit: Nevermind, mis-read Affinity and didn't realize it targeted all lands and not just yours

FSims81 i probably should have mentioned i only had 3 lands, everyone else had 4 lands or 3 lands and a creature, i was 2nd to last in turn order
edit:"this allowed me to survive the blast with 1 life to spare"

Ramble yeah, before I re-read Affinity I was trying to figure out how you were turning 5 mana into casting both cards. I mean I'm not the best at math but I'm not that bad. A second glance fixed my problem as I realized everyone else was probably at 2 or 3 lands at worst and in a 10 person game you're essentially casting the Act for .
