I understand. I'm not sure you're going to find anything more efficient, with fewer hoops to jump through, than Hollow One or Vexing Devil . It's an interesting deck idea, and there has to be a way to make it work. Good luck!

You're probably going to find more reduced-cost creatures, then, and you got a lot of the best ones. How about Ghoultree , Ancient Stone Idol , Tazri, Beacon of Unity , Marshmist Titan , or Khalni Hydra ? (I'd like to see the deck that runs both of the last two.)

Power for mana: Ascendant Spirit , Figure of Destiny , Student of Warfare

+1/+1 counters: Experiment One , Carrion Feeder , Pelt Collector , Champion of the Parish , other creatures with a triggered or activated ability that adds counters

Nice deck! Is there room for Stuffy Doll or Boros Reckoner in this list? Do you have an out if you start the combo when your opponent has more life, or have Banefire / Devil's Play filled that role?

MagicMarc Lot of suggestions there! I'll try the full Slippery Bogle --> Paradise Druid switch, but I'm a little concerned about the progression of the first couple turns. Adding more Sylvan Caryatid s was on my list, but I'll need to get more copies. Muddle the Mixture is good, I can get that done. I'll try out Fierce Empath and Reason / Believe ; I had Reason / Believe in for a while, and it worked well.

Thanks for the thoughts!

Omniscience_is_life I like the Tribute Mage idea, that's a good switch. For the Emrakul , Spy Kit only grants nonlegendary names, so there's no way to cheat it out, unfortunately. Maybe I'll add in a nonlegendary Eldrazi.

Thanks for checking it out!

I put this deck together a few years ago and just dug it out. It's been a fun deck, but was never especially reliable. Does anyone have any suggestions to help it run smoother? It's for kitchen table friendly play, so I'm trying to avoid Uro level stuff.

The deck is designed to attach a Spy Kit to a small creature and use Mitotic Manipulation or Retraced Image to pull out something big and smashy.

Iridescent Haze


Prevent all combat damage that would be dealt to you and permanents you control this turn. You and permanents you control have hexproof until end of turn.

The colors distort appearances and confuse assailants. The sparkles are just for show.

Create a card that interacts positively with artifacts and lands.

Would you be willing to link the deck?

Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but I've always liked Silvos, Rogue Elemental .

As a tangentially related question, what would make a wall legendary? In the game, there's only Pramikon, Sky Rampart , which appears to be essentially magical. On Earth, we have, off the top of my head, the Great Wall of China, the Berlin Wall, the Walls of Jericho, and the Walls of Constantinople. There's probably more. Does any plane have any big, important barriers like this? Great Wall , maybe, conveniently laid across the Aysen Highway .

Three Nobles' Transformation

Legendary Enchantment - Saga

I, II. Turn target nonlegendary permanent you don't control facedown. (A facedown card is a 2/2 colorless creature. It can be turned face up at anytime for its mana cost if it's a creature.)

III. Each player draws cards equal to the number of creatures they control.

IV. Each player turns all face-up creatures they control facedown, then loses life equal to the number of creatures they control.

Three Nobles' Transformation can be your commander.

If you want to develop the story of the Three Nobles, create one of the Nobles. Otherwise, wild card.

That was my breakdown. I probably should have mentioned that in the post.

There's five books there, and you mention that the Disney movie condensed the first two. Which is fine, for what it was trying to do. If you want a faithful adaptation, I'd go with television (or on-demand streaming). If you don't mind significant modification, I think a movie trilogy would tell the story well without feeling bloated.

hellokitty6666666666666 Chaos as a theme works, I'm going to play around with different names. It'll probably end up being Chaos.

Astro2 Is Lantern Control still around? I used to run it fairly frequently, but I never got as good at it as I wanted to. But I know it as a very tight decklist, and I'm trying to avoid putting hubs that have little variation. Do you have some examples that show different flavors of Lantern Control?

DoctorBarbarian Foretell should go in the ability list list. I think yeaGO controls that one.

Important part of this post: Is anyone going to be using this to get into new franchises? I know a decent amount about LotR and almost nothing about WH40K. When they get released, do you think these products would be a good bridge to other franchises?

Me pontificating: I'm not thrilled about this, but I'm trying to to see it as a positive. My favorite sets are the completely unique and original ones, that don't draw on history (Amonkhet, Ixalan) or a general fantasy flavor (Dominaria). There's nothing wrong with those planes, and I don't dislike them, but I don't get the feeling of discovery I do with others. Alara and Mirrodin, while they might share philosophical and design origins with other IPs, are unique in their execution and feel. When WotC announces a plane that I know nothing about and can't learn about from a history book, the feeling of anticipation drives me. I'm not saying that Universes Beyond is lazy or a bad idea, but at this early stage, I'm just not feeling as interested in them.

JaytheGreat I'm looking for an artifact with the Food subtype, inspired by the food you most recently ate. It doesn't have to be realistic; check out Gingerbrute or Golden Egg for (fairy tale) examples. Does that help?

This looks... powerful. And terrifying. Very much in line with the Eldrazi.

Said on Ooze Horde...


I have a couple of questions about this deck. Does the Horde ever activate Biogenic Ooze 's token creation or Splitting Slime 's monstrosity? How do you determine Gluttonous Slime 's devour?

Nice theme, and it looks fun!
