Thank you for the clarify, Rhadamanthus.

I got your point, but just to be sure: Since I can stack my own triggers as I want, the following works, correct?

  1. At the Beginning of combat on my turn, I use Fight Rigging to put a +1/+1 counter on Halana and Alena, Partners. Then, if I meet the conditions, I play the hidden card - e.g. I cast Balefire Dragon and put it onto the battlefield.
  2. I use Halana and Alena, Partners to put counters on Balefire Dragon and give it haste.
  3. I attack with Balefire Dragon.

Thank you Dromar39. I ordered one and will try it out.

I'm confused about how Fight Rigging works because it could state the condition for playing the hidden card by saying "If you control a creature with power 7". Instead, it says "At the beginning of combat on your turn...Then if you control a creature with power 7..."

Does this mean I can play the hidden card only directly after putting the +1/+1 counter on a creature? Which would mean only during my combat step and therefore only if it is an instant or it has flash?

WotanubisReturned Very interesting! With Daretti being a Planeswalker and only running 9 creatures, how long can he stay on the bf? I guess you win or die quickly, as red should? I feel like my Rielle, the Everwise deck is too busy doing other stuff than actually burning people.

WotanubisReturned I should actually take my questions to your deck...

There is a great 50$ pauper deck from 6 years ago that kind of does a similar thing to mill/discard Ulamog's Crusher and then Exhume it. It uses Gurmag Angler and Hooting Mandrills as a backup. You should check it out: hasty crusher on turn 2.

Since you are not limited by pauper, you could exhume Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hungeror Goryo's Vengeance it on the end of your opponents turn.

zach3584 I'm trying to wrap my head around this. Carah is lovely, but also frightening.

I tested her in a Rielle, the Everwise deck. Tapping her to exile a card is great. But casting and exiling three seems very risky, especially since casting a second DA will exile the next three cards and so on. Unless you have a lot of ramp or cost reduction, I don't see how you can keep up without losing a lot of potentially important cards into exile. You don't run a lot of rocks or cost reducers like Helm of Awakening, and you don't run Neheb, the Eternal or Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion.

So, how do you even cast all those cards exiled by Carah? How well does the deck fare?

zach3584 Dragon's Approach triggers Carah for each opponent, is that correct? So one DA will cause her to exile three cards?

WotanubisReturned How do you ensure that Hoarding Dragon dies? Your opponents will see Thrumming Stone in exile and surely block or it with a smaller creature until they can Path to Exile it, don't they?

I'm currently building Dragon's Approach deck with Rielle, the Everwise. This is the current status: 32 Sustainable Spells to Burn Body Fat.

Due to it's nature of using multiple instances of the same card, the deck is rather generic, I guess. I'm looking for interesting ideas to make it faster, more consistent, and somehow more interesting.

In it's current state, sometimes it's not always consistent. Sometimes it runs very well, other times it doesn't synergize at all. I've added some notes in the description.

If you have any suggestions, I would gladly appreciate them.

Hey Cloudius, did you see that they are reprinting Imperial Seal in Double Masters 2? There are also rumors about reprinting Capture of Jingzhou. I immediately had to think of your deck:) Btw, I had written before the I was trying for a less strong version of your deck. But it doesn't work. Once they know what the game plan is you immediately become archenemy. Well, they are reprinting Mana Vault, too, and Cavern of Souls. And I'm hoping for Mana Drain

Ah, I found it in the rules myself in 702.124h: It only works, if your commander has "Choose a background". Otherwise, the background is just an enchantment in the 99.

I can't find the information.

I have Halana and Alena, Partners as my commander and play Wilson, Refined Grizzly. How does that "Choose a background" ability work then?

Thank you:)
