    So how do we design around the fact that this card is legendary?

    If I understand correctly you can flip to land, and then pay another, but if/when it flips, won't they both be destroyed by the legendar rule?

    It doesn't seem good or quick enough to be a 1-of and try to wait or tutor for it.
    The Legend rules allows you to choose which permanent to keep / sacrifice. This way, you could tap for the mana, then flip the enchantment, then choose the tapped land to be sacrificed. You then have another untapped legendary land ready to use! The same applies if both enchantments are in play at same time... you can still benefit from the trigger of the latest cast copy. Thus, having 4 copies in a deck is not a problem, in my opinion.

    Animation Module looks interesting, since green can splash lots of +1/+1 counters, and Module with Itlimoc can grow together each turn.

    Sram's Expertise is one of the most obvious, since you can use the second part to cast Itlimoc.
    I am also thinking about using Sram's Expertise to ensure a quick and easy flip. I am wondering which card(s) could best abuse the flow of mana? I am thinking about instants or permanents with an activated ability to ensure the mana could be used right away.

    Otherwise, I made a search for creatures which could truly optimize the deck, other than token generators, but so far nothing really stands out as obvious.

    Any ideas or deck links?

    Ok I get it. I am sure my group will give me some form of denial when they hear me explain the above. I will print your responses to avoid a lenghty discussion!

    Thanks

    I saw on a website the following combo:

    Cauldron of Souls + Horobi, Death's Wail:Target any number of creatures and destroy them.
    Since Horobi is in play, its ability will be applied first before persist will be granted.

    I am not sure I understand, anyone cares to explain?

    Thanks!

    So... you're paying 2 mana a turn to be able to attack with Grimgrin each turn? That hardly sounds "evil".

    Like I said from the start, its not that it was that evil, but dropping all these guys on turn 2 was priceless. My opponents were really pissed!

    It might not be such an evil thing I did, but here goes anyway: I was playing my zombie deck and on 2nd turn, I cast 2 dark ritual for a Rooftop Storm, followed by free Lich Lord of Unx + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. Third turn, I created a token with the Lich, sac'd it to Grimgrin and the feast began! My opponents soon conceeded, as you can imagine...

    Such an awesome card. I don't know if I should replace the kite in my Omnath deck with this, though. The fact that the transformation is mandatory is a bit of a turn off. Sometimes I'd prefer to keep searching up lands for landfall triggers instead of getting a Maze of Ith that can tap for mana. Definitely a consideration for other decks though. Especially if I ever get around to building that turbofog deck.


    Why don't you put both cards and see?

    Hi, just bumping up the thread.

    I am also not impressed, I joined around a year ago and did not get much cards traded since then. I am now trying to use pts I have and then close my account. However, one great way that started generating trades again lately for me is by using the promoted trade option. Of course, it costs more as you have to offer a higher price to attract some trades. Three trades have materialized since then, so Puca is not completely useless.

    Bottom line: avoid the site, unless they do a major change to their system (they should allow users to seek cards they need instead of passively waiting for them).

    Thanks for your helpful response. It gave me some good ideas, namely with Mimic Vat and Prototype Portal. One thing, though, is that I want to avoid infinite combos since they are not allowed in my playgroup. Just need to mention this again to orient the thread in the right direction.

    Otherwise, who else has built a deck abusing the Rings? I am sure many here have played with it or have played against it. I just need more ideas until I find something really original that will make a great deck. So share your experiences (good or bad)!

    Again, thanks for the help.

    Time to revive this thread!

    I would like to ask again if you can suggest cards which, in your experience, have truly made an impact or that work amazingly well with the rings. I just need a few ideas to get my creative juices flowing.

    Previous comment suggested PW but in my playgroup, they get shot down almost immediately, so that is not an avenue I am thinking to pursue.

    Thanks again for your ideas.

    Hi guys,

    I have a playset of Rings of Brighthearth that have been asleep for way too long in my binder. I really need to make a deck with them, but I am not sure what direction I should take. I am thus asking your help for some suggestions. I only play casual multiplayer game but my playgroup has some good decks which have proved their worth.

    I would like to make something not too complicated (for example having too many triggers going on and possibly causing confusion), and nothing with infinite combos. In short, I am thinking about a deck that would be fun to play while not becoming a major nuisance for my opponents, if possible. The deck should also work if the Rings get destroyed.

    I have toyed with the idea of using Experiment Kraj for obvious reasons, but I don't like the fact that +1 counters must be involved for this to work. Otherwise, Wort, the Raidmother is another possibility, but then I need instants / sorceries so that don't seem like a good idea either. Anyway, I know that there are tons of possibilities, and that several persons here have managed to make a good deck featuring Rings of Brighthearth. So dont' be shy, share your decklists or propose some cards that have made an impact for you.

    Budget is not an issue, but try keeping cards under 10$ if possible.

    Thanks a lot, I am eager to see what you have in mind.
