  • posted a message on Inalla, Archmage Recursionist: tapdance control
    Some questions about Teferi's Veil, I'm very interested about this card since trying to assemble Sedris, the Traitor King deck.

    If Inalla have Teferi's Veil on the battlefield, considering new C17 rules about tokens, if an attacking token reach the end of the combat it phase out and there isn't on the battlefield when you must exile it forced by Inalla ability. Then tokens come back on start of your next turn. It's correct? If isn't correct do you know why? In Sedris I use Teferi's Veil to save creatures to exile without using any other card or ability.

    About Sundial of the Infinite when is really useful?

    I'm really confused about these cards, but seem really efficient in Inalla deck and I'm interested to assemble this deck. Also thanks about deck sharing seems really a good deck.

  • posted a message on Mairsil and ability with a previous choice
    Mairsil can access to some abilities with some requirements, for example Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII, Callous Oppressor, Belbe's Portal.

    Are there general rules for activation of this kind of abilities using Mairsil?
    Are there some specific rules for activation of ability of Callous Oppressor? He need for a creature type but you can use ability to all other creatures type.

    Thanks in advance.

    Quote from Ryperior74 »

    steel hellkite is already confirmed as one of the reprints from the leaks.
    And tribals usually have 30 maybe 35 of the same creature type

    30-35? You make me happy!

    For commons probabily we can something of Scourge Dragon Aura, obliviously except blue one:
    -Dragon Scales
    -Dragon Shadow
    -Dragon Breath
    -Dragon Fangs

    Dragon Fangs can be useful Smile

    Oh and chromatic lantern is a safe bet since this is a five-color deck.

    Talking about artifact a Prismatic Geoscope can be useful to ramp. But they print Ramos and I'm not sure about reprint of this stone. Also Fellwar Stone is a possible reprint.

    About Dragons:
    - Thundermaw Hellkite could be really useful to make a shot, I'm expecting a deck with a number of 20-25 dragons
    - Scourge of Valkas never reprinted
    - Steel Hellkite could be a must, no coloured mana and can remove objects

    About Spells:
    - Sarkhan's Triumph is a near sure reprint, dragons are involved, it's a tutor and it's an uncommon card
    - Patriarch's Bidding is preatty sure, in my mind, in one or more of C17 decks. Hope is in Dragons! Also Living Death and Twilight's Call could be really fun in this Commander block
    - Urza's Incubator as Patriatch's Bidding there's an high chance to have one Incubator in one of these decks, a great ramp for Dragons
    - Allied Strategies is a five color spell, really useful with dragons to refill hand
    Random Reprints:
    - Selvala's Stampede Grin
    - Wild Pair Grin

    What evidence do we have that the Wizard deck would be Grixis and not Esper?

    Are there new evidence permit to speak about wizards surely?

    I've bought this card on an online store. They not declared any defect but cards results strange.
    In my ideas produce ad sell proxies of Time Warp is too many work for value of the card. So I need am help to understand if the card is a proxy or similar or have one or more undeclared flaws.

    Link to Time Warp HD resoultion
    Here you can find an italian tempest common to have a comparison.

    Color differences are real and not a camera issue.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think it is very safe to assume that all four face cards are avatars, since all four of them logically should have eminence as their new keyword.

    Avatar:
    1) the descendant of a deity to the earth in an incarnate form or some manifest shape.
    2) an embodiment or personification, as of a principle attitude or view of life.

    You could be right. Have you some references about Avatar mtg definition? Take a look to Avatar creature here, in a big majority of cases they have an ethereal component in images, excluded some old images and strange beasts.
    About Eminence, you pair this ability and Avatar really strong. But also a "Guildmaster" can have Eminence ability.

    If they are all Avatars I trust in Shapeshifter theory.

    You are right about Knigths. Please read Knigth instead Warrior. It's my fault I thought about Knights and wrote Warriors.

    About other consideration I prefer the Shapeshifter theory but this second theory could be a valid alternative. And satisfy my aversion to consider Edgar and NamelessOne Avatars. If you take a look to Ur-Dragon and Arhobo they look a bit ethereal and mythic. Edgar and NamelessOne are not etheral seems more part of reality.

    Night has bring me some ideas and reinforce my ideas about Shapeshifter theory adding a piece to the puzzle. She must have the role of near the Edgar role in Vampire deck. This for a symmetry can be observe in four new commander: Ur-Dragon and Edgar are known in mtg storyline. Arhabo and NamelessOne are unknown. Ur-Dragon and Arhabo could be assigned to a similar role. Also Edgar and NamelessOne could have a similar role of representation of Vampire and Shapeshifter. She always can be Lavaz in a past role, before abandon white to become Dimir Guildmaster (in my idea deck is BUW). Shapeshifter theory seems have a kind of solidity.

    Thinking about I've a new idea. We all take for granted Edgar is a Vampire tribal deck but, as I say before, is not simple for me to imagine it as an Avatar. What about a Warrior tribal deck? With a vampire subtheme? Using symmetry whe could have two Avatar (one known and one not) and two Guildmaster (warrior and rogue for example). Whe don't know if Edgar and NamelessOne are Avatar. They could have Guildmaster, or something on, as second type (like Avatar for Ur-Dragon and Arhabo). In Edgar storyline there's no reference to Warrior class, he was an Alchemist. But the Armor his servants help him to wear is a Warrior Armor as anyone can see. This is an alternative theory not expected and with some holes. But I like it.

    Shapeshifter is one of my hopes after Angels downfall. Can really be a valid option for the men in circle, they are really similar.
    Taking a look to Lavaz here i've found:
    Quote from Lavaz on Gamepedia »
    Lazav continues to use most of Szadek's methods, giving both their own agents and mercenaries (one of whom is Krenko[1]) as little information as is required to further their goals.
    Details about them are unknown, including Lazav's real gender. They claim that they take orders from some greater power.

    Words "agents" and "gender" really tickle my fantasies. Men in circle have hoods like Lavaz, they can be Agents of Lavaz. The light on her face can be represent the revelation of another form of Lavaz or about the real form of Lavaz. She can be Lavaz or a kin, really near. Also the high difficult to guess the race can partially confirm the Shapeshifter option.

    Changing my bid. Bid on Shapeshifter Smile
    Seems a valid option and I can appreciate it.

    Other three tribes are racial tribes. It's possible but not granted that fourth tribe is not a racial tribe but a "work" tribe. In last period Wizards be careful with types of creature. I'm not truly persuaded that the fourth tribe is a "guild" (Clerics, Wizards, Rogues, ...) but it's possible.

    Analyzing the image we can see a cohort of men around a woman. It's possible she isn't an Avatar, personally I don't see Edgar Markov as an Avatar, but she is the very important for other people. She had a light armor with mantle and without hood. Men have some protections and hood. There's a light from the ceiling enlighten her face. Mens can be part of a ritual but can also only bow themself to their leader.

    Whole image is a set of conflicting signals. Wizzy have some great people working aroud marketing because this last image is causing a lot of pages of writings in whole world until last tribe will be revealed.

    If the last tribe is a "guild" my vote go for Rogue, cause the first impression.
    If the last tribe is a racial tribe like others I don't vote Humans, but I've no alternatives ideas Smile

    Taking a look to the image posted, the woman with circle of man behind, we can surely see an UB colored card. The light coming from up, seems from an hole in the ceiling, enlighten face of the woman seems add W to the color of the deck. Also considering purple in box they seems confirm a BUW deck.

    Those are my two cents.
    David.
