    posted a message on Strategy opinion
    Life Gain in BW is most definitely a strong option for a multiplayer win-con. As far as your commander options, I would push you to look at either Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Karlov of the Ghost Council, or (my personal favorite) Teysa, Orzhov Scion.

    These are all very strong options for commanders that can lend themselves to BW based life gain strategies.

    I know Teysa may seem weird to think of as a "life gain deck", but trust me, she can lend herself very well to this strategy as most BW life gain hinges mainly on tokens. I explore you to check out my checklist at: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/teysa-orzhov-scion-life-gaindrain-v-10/ for ideas for any commander deck you choose in the life gain realm.

    Happy building and good luck!

    Hour of Promise is the card which concerns me most in #MTGHOU.
    Why? It's Primetime's ETB (no attack trigger or 6/6 trampling body) and harder to abuse (re-using or stealing sorceries is harder than re-using or stealing creatures). At many tables, it's going to be worse than Tempt with Discovery, especially since Tempt brings in the lands untapped.


    Just want to second all of this. I see 0 issues with Hour of Promise, and happily welcome its effect since there are not many ways to just grab any land(s) you want and put them into play since PrimeTime's ban.

    I am also curious about how this card stirs up more "concern" than Razaketh does. Now, I personally don't think that Raz will lead to "ban-worthy" issues, but it certainly seems more capable pf that than Hour of Promise does to me.

    Lifecrafter's Bestiary let's yu scry every upkeep, and even though you said you don't run many creatures, whenever you cast one commander, you can get a draw off of it.

    Does anyone else notice that Gideon is the only art that has a crack through the character on it? To me, this could represent the coming of his death by Bolas. Anyone else?

    posted a message on Karador-Friendly Board Wipes
    Finding board wipes that work well with mass reanimation is nearly impossible at this point, unfortunately. My best suggestion is going to be to run one-sided board wipes like: In Garruk's Wake, Plague Wind, and/or Overwhelming Forces. These are always good, and can even be "blow-out" type cards. They are expensive though, so the oher option that I thought of is to run and prioritize getting Avacyn, Angel of Hope in your 'yard before your mass reanimation. Then you can run lower CMC "destroy" board-wipes such as: Wrath of God, Damnation, and the aforementioned Divine Reckoning with much less worry about blowing up all your own stuff.

    I decided to run both. I probably need more sac outlets, and the fact that I also run Necrotic Ooze and stuff like buried alive won me over. I can buried alive, have ooze, sac a zombie token to get something like loyal retainers, use that to reanimate it. Plus its helpful I can "at worst" sac and undying rune scarred demon to it for double tutor. I dont think I can lose with a double tutor.

    Ended up cutting Dark Petition, because realistically... I run like 5 spells...


    Sounds like a good decision. I would also encourage others to run both if they have space for it. I just decided that in my list I didn't need more than one "tutor creature", and Raz is the one I determined should work best in my list. I may find space again for RSD yet.

    I have a Karador deck as well, and I actually prefer Razaketh over RSD. I just think that an 8/8 tramply flyer that has the potential to end games with floods of tutors makes it better and easier to abuse than RSD. 2 life and a creature is nothing, really, and as someone else mentioned, him being a sac outlet is actually an upside many times.

    I was vaguely considering using Gate to the Afterlife as extra filtering in a few decks, and God-Pharoah's Gift seems like a relevant payoff for the low cost of adding a filtering artifact to the deck. I particularly like it for Xenagos, God of Revels to filter early then start spitting out relevant bodies for him to double (stacking triggers so the 4/4 is there to be doubled, of course).


    Just want to catch you on this before you go to do it in a game, and someone calls you out on it: Though you can stack these triggers, you must choose the targets for Xenagos' ability when it put on the stack, and at that point, the "Eternalized" creature from Gift of the God-Pharaoh won't be on the battlefield to target unfortunately.

    Fun fact: this card, it does not target the card that you "Eternalize". This means that you can get around Ground Seal and other similar effects.

    I imagine it to be pretty easy to make Torment of Hailfire a wincon... Either cast it the turn right after a boardwipe or mass hand removal spell, or just dumb massive amounts of mana in it. With either of those scenarios, it won't matter what their choices are, and that's when this card is the best.

    Best combo I found with this deck idea is Murder of Crows + any sac outlet = Filter through your entire deck/fill your graveyard + whatever the sac outlet's effect is.

    Also, Five-Alarm Fire seems janky but very fun.

    Also, also, I didn't see Hellrider here yet.

    Yep, probably going to build an EDH deck with Torment of Hailfire as the main wincon. Seems like it'd be super fun to win by casting it for X=20+ (30+, 50+ 100+???)

    Yeah, I'm not sure why they went with this "new" templating of "repeat this process" effects. I think the this card with the old templating could/should have read, "Each opponent loses 3 life unless that player sacrifices a nonland permanent or discards a card. Repeat this process X times."

    To clarify, the wording on torment of hailfire.

    Repeat the following X times. Does this mean that paying BB and 0 would make this hit once or is it once per X paid?

    Sorry for the stupid question


    It would be per X paid. BB and 0 would cause this card to be cast but do nothing.


    Thank you, just settling an argument in a group chat Smile


    I don't think something that hasn't occurred can be "repeated". For this reason, I believe casting this for BB (X = 0) will still cause one instance of the effect.

    Wow, Torment of Hailfire... Bolas did not let us down, and I am excited to build an EDH deck around casting this card as my only win-con.
