Most of my decks on TappedOut are theorycrafting, seeing how a card interaction works or just messing around. I like grindy attrition decks, usually in some variation of --Turbofog, Lantern Control, discard, that sort of thing. Resource denial is a way of life. I also have a soft spot for Dredge and recursion.

Creature types that need more support: Assassin, Plant, Scorpion, Shaman, Skeleton

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor Really? That makes sense. I had just missed it somehow, then.

Wait, Kyodai links to a month-old deck here?

January 28, 2022 3:24 a.m.

Alas, no Mowu...

Kyodai, Soul of Kamigawa is the 5-color legend of the set. Not sure it's going to reach the heights of Golos or Kenrith, though.

I'm taking Invoke despair as a point in favor of a certain Myojin showing up one way or another.

Signposts seem to be pretty clear this set, with Enthusiastic Mechanaut, Jukai Naturalist , and Silver-Fur Master so far showing the way. Also, could Silver-Fur Master be the card that ties together two tribes?

gofly4683 You're right, unfortunately. Color identity counts the text box as well as the mana cost.

I guess the best course of action at this point is to interview a fairy. Does anyone here have access to one?

Joraga Paraglider

Creature - Elf Scout Warrior

Flying

Joraga Paraglider can only block creatures with flying.

At the beginning of the end step, if you don't control two or more Forests, sacrifice Joraga Paraglider.

2/2

Birds could reach any sky ruin in Zendikar. Some elves noticed.


Create a creature that gives opponents' creatures first strike.

I just can't let this discussion go... Pranking is one thing. Murder, theft, kidnapping, and whatever causing livestock to sicken and crops to wither is (biological warfare?) is something else entirely.

I should say here that I know that plenty of folklore fairies are entirely benign, and even helpful and generous. Which I think again displays a human-ish morality. Most are harmless until/unless you interact with them one way or another, some are benevolent, and some are basically socio- or psychopathic.

January 27, 2022 1:18 a.m.

Coward_Token It's in post #12, which seshiro_of_the_orochi linked. Just under the Ninja token. I could be wrong about who it's showing, but it looks similar, allowing for artistic differences.

January 27, 2022 12:58 a.m.

Okay, last comment from me. Maybe.

So only humans are capable of malice? If a creature is intelligent, able to communicate, and performs an action that it knows harms another, I would argue that's malice, or at best callous apathy, which is a very minor distinction outside of a courtroom.

If Sean mac Whatever kidnaps a leprechaun and extorts it for gold, would the leprechaun see that as malicious? Or is the human sense of morality as alien to fairies as their morality apparently is to humans?

Charge of the Cinderhorn

Sorcery

As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may remove X fury counters from permanents you control.

Charge of the Cinderhorn deals X+1 damage to target player and each creature that player controls.


Create a Polynesia/Oceania-inspired card.

tek357 One of the Oracle rulings on Beacon of Immortality says that it counts as life gain or loss.

7/15/2007 Beacon of Immortality’s effect counts as life gain (or life loss, if the life total was negative) for effects that trigger on or replace life gain (or life loss).

So go ahead and throw it into your deck.

Any word on planeswalkers? I assume Tamiyo will be coming home, and

one of the art pieces looks like it shows Show

Caerwyn This is probably going to be my last comment here. I enjoy the discussion and I think your points have merit, but I don't want to drag the thread any further off topic.

In many Middle Ages stories, fairies are very well aware of the harm that they bring to people. While it may be some biological imperative (a point I don't believe I've seen before), they still do it, take no measures to reduce it, and are generally aware enough to know that it causes pain. This isn't a predator-prey relationship, and even less of migratory birds (when was the last time a goose kidnapped a child?). It's parasitic, and the parasite acts with complete knowledge that it causes harm and does nothing to mitigate that harm, occasionally appearing to enjoy it.

DBCooper Thanks! It was a lot of fun to design.

January 26, 2022 8:15 p.m.

Caerwyn Okay, I'd like to check some specific examples and definitions. Would you consider redcaps or powries (what Murderous Redcap is based on) to be simply scheming, or non-malicious? Would you consider a Will-o'-the-Wisp a type of fairy, in folklore? Also, my understanding of the child-switching isn't just out of curiosity, but also to enslave the children they kidnapped. I'll get a source for that.

I just want to make sure we're defining the terms the same way. I would consider the above examples to be both malicious and fairy-ish, rather than demonic/diabolic.

January 25, 2022 12:24 p.m.

Caerwyn I dunno, being forced to dance in a ring of mushrooms until death, stealing and enslaving children, leading people off cliffs and into swamps, and more are the tales of warning about fairies. Once in a while, you'll get a decent type to milk your cows and sweep your floors, so as a whole they're less malicious, but far from all whimsical and tricksy.

I think the difference comes down to philosophy, shown here by mana color. Tibalt wants to watch the world burn, and that's not a metaphor. The devils of Innistrad seem to be more destructive and less "corruptor-y" than folklore devils. Oko does hit the right notes of being powerful, dangerous, and unpredictable common to the less pleasant fairies of folklore.

Sorry, forgot to add a point, Night's Reach is capable of interplanar travel.

seshiro_of_the_orochi https://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/674279360149291008/a-popular-legendary-creature-from-champions-of#notes confirms this hint isn't talking about Hidetsugu.

"a popular legendary creature from Champions of Kamigawa block returns in a new form"

Skimming the CoK legendary creatures, my money's on Myojin of Night's Reach. Known to have interacted with Nicol Bolas before, and currently unconfirmed alive or dead. Most of the other options are either mortal (and probably not 1,200+ years old), confirmed dead, less popular, or a Spirit Dragon.

ZendikariWol I believe Ennor is a Vedalken making a comment about the Vectis Dominator. But Ennor somehow shows up in Eldraine, according to Stonecoil Serpent.

Said on What are some …...

#20

There are a handful of combos that create unbreakable loops without winning--the one that comes to my mind is Sporemound and Life and Limb.

I guess you could set up something like Ash Zealot and Past in Flames, or put a Transcendence in a life gain deck.

What are you trying to accomplish with this idea?
