Ah, yes. Quite the blissful times, when all fall in my wake, at last lout afore true majesty!

Ignoring the above, I do believe myself to be at least an amiable player. I typically don't go infinite and merely win through classic combat damage. Most oft my decks are built to draw out of trouble, have timely answers, and rebuild swiftly.

I have a common theme amongst my deck-building strategies, and I implement these in profusion:

Card draw everywhere! People have said to run ten ways to draw cards, yet I find this to be far too inconsistent. I despise having any strategy run out of fuel, thence I run far more. My Illuna deck has 30 draw engines, Oakenshield at 22, and Hazezon bearing 29. The foison of draw never feels lacking, and therefrom I opt to put all possible.

With lots of card draw comes very few lands. I choose less on this category for I possess a meiny of draw spells to find said-lands. A Once Upon a Time is a far better top-deck on turn nine than a Forest .

Synergy is a preference of mind, in lieu of power. In a lands-matter deck, I prefer Kodama's Reach to Mind Stone , and Multani to Ulamog .

As much as I toil, creatures are always a prominence in my decks. Either I have over thirty, or they are overwhelmingly important to my deck's engine.

Decimate you, and decimate you! I love Decimate and I put it in every deck I can.

I haven't the slightest clue, yet I cannot bring myself to enjoy graveyard strategies. Most of my decks have this as a subtheme, but not at all protuberant.

Welp, that's the depth of me. Have a lovely day and feel free to peer upon my decks.

Fare thee well.

TheSlowestBro - Ah, that one had eluded me! Unfortunately, the deck has an excruciatingly tight list at the moment. But, with further testing and a card excluded, Bag of Holding shall be one of the first added.

I abstained from Glaring Spotlight due to the card disadvantage from it. Being mono-Red deck that draws like a Simic player made me only consider Detection Tower and Arcane Lighthouse , but wonderful suggestion by any means!

I feel as if Myriad and Phasing have the most design space left unexplored. These both encompass uniquity in Magic's meiny of keywords, and I believe much more could be offered.

Future Sight had given Absorb and Aura Swap , each of which differing from aught else seen.

Lastly, Clash and Entwine are each favourites of mine, being a little narrow in their depicted applications: natheless, easily expanded upon.

Named_Tawyny - That offers splendid certitude. Thank you.

Omniscience_is_life - Oh, my apologies for the misplaced rules question. This simply eluded me.

All targets are chosen at the same time once it enters the stack, and the ability does not state "when that creature dies," thus there is no reflexive trigger. It all resolves at the same time in terms of stack resolution and does not account for state-based actions until it is finished.

I am decently positive they can choose the same creature, this was more so a confirmation of this belief.

Thank you very much.

Yes, another query about this nocent folk, Diaochan .

So, I have finished her deck, but only just considered another minutia with her rules text that is not covered in the oracle.

Whenever I tap her , I choose a creature to target—let us say Deadly Recluse . Thereupon, an opponent chooses a creature. Are they able to choose the same Deadly Recluse as was previously targeted in the same activation of the ability, or must something else be chosen given the opportunity?

The keyword "another" is not divulged in the text, yet I still wish to be aware of each rule before I put this in the command zone with confidence.

I like to believe you are using the royal "one."

Ah, I had long-tinkered with an Alesha list for quite the meiny of months, whereupon I have a fair number of suggestions for consideration in your ranks.

Meseems Callous Bloodmage is one of the best cards in the new set for inclusion, as it does three relevant things for any given circumstance. Choose wisely.

Any aristocrats list is incomplete when bereft of Skullclamp . Overplayed? Overrated? Too powerful? Is it too efficient? Perhaps you are tired of acknowledging its existence? Is this jest overlong all for the sake of an ensuing sentence? No, no, yes, maybe, and yes. (Just play it.)

Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is a particular powerhouse. He does everything. Maugre the cost of one life, he enables a draw engine and sacrifice outlet. So much for so little.

False Prophet is a most splendid wrath, for, ere his calamitous demise trigger, you may sacrifice your board and ravage all others.

Feldon of the Third Path , however sorrowful his tale, is quite the potent artificer. Bringing back many and wreaking havoc upon all is a brutal combination that can act as a backup version of the commander.

Rummaging effects are perhaps something of which I am too fond, yet here we are. Rummaging Goblin , Anje Falkenrath , Plargg, Dean of Chaos  Flip, Deal Broker , Smuggler's Copter , and Mad Prophet are all ones I would seek to add.

I much enjoy Painful Truths in any multi-coloured Black deck. Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper are equally enjoyable.

Retribution of the Meek is a splendid wrath, typically decimating the opponents' populous.

There are also the intrinsic staples that I may as well proffer by name: Blood Artist , Swords to Plowshares , Despark , Anguished Unmaking , Vindicate , Path to Exile , and Fellwar Stone .

Thus is all, dear folk. But, might all of your foes be met with a despairing shriek as Karmic Guide has her fun casting demise.

Lastly, the deck name could use a little work. Yes, it may be forthright, but, opt for something with flare. Let it be histrionic! Brutal! WONDERFUL!

Thence I leave.

Here is my own list, if you deign to care: Quondam Foes

I was aware of the Shroud and Protection interaction and was merely confirming my suspicion of Hexproof.

Thank you for the affirmation.

April 21, 2021 8:34 p.m.

Pardon my flagrant mispelling of "Hexproof" in the appellation.

April 21, 2021 4:33 p.m.

I have been toiling with a Diaochan deck for commander, and naturally swayed towards protective equipment to prevent her from being perished by her own hand.

But, I had the realization that Swiftfoot Boots might not work as I first thought.

My understanding is that, even if my opponent makes the choice and she is donning a Hexproof equipment, I am still the technical controller of Diaochan's ability, and thus she can die to it.

Is this correct?
