Hi judge gurus,
I searched this forum for all rullings given and haven't explicitly found an answer to the following question.
I need confirmation about the interaction between Word of command and counters (and more specifically force fo will).
I cast word of command targetting my opponent and he has a counter in his hand. Once he lets WOC resolve (which may be unwise), may I choose one of the counters he has and play it targetting WOC (just like misdirection can change the target of a counterspell to itself while on the stack) ? As the oracle texts stipulates that the chosen spell is played while WOC is resolving, WOC (being on the stack at the time) seems to me like a valid target. Am I correct ?
I my reasoning is right, sorry to have bothered, but as the card is a tad bit strange I prefer to have a rules guru confirm my ruling.
PS to mods : there is an issue with the "search this forum" tool when logged in : it simply searches ALL forums, and if searching specific forums is ticked, then it offers 100+ forums to choose from :/

2/12/2014 12:18:59 AMI'd always favor the revoker over needle in my builds due to being a creature. Elesh-norn is a beast ! I love her in any case so, sure.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Commander Decklists
Stony silence could work, but once again, it's not a creature so I am really reluctant to put it there. Spore frog could be back in the deck if need be, but I prefer children of korlis for griselbrand and sylvan library shenanigans.
Nevermore could be good enough to warrant it's inclusion, but the casting cost is steep.
Trying to accelerate the deck seems a more reliable way to grind a few % in those MU's.
As a side note : fauna shaman never pulled it's weight for me. Only one activation per turn is too few, and is takes for ever to be active, and therefore never sees any action.
I like apprentice necromancer a lot.
What do you guys think about the ooze combo shell (ooze, phyrexian devourer, and triskelion) ? can it provide us with a fast way to combo ?
2/10/2014 6:45:22 AMMy experience VS derevi and zur was bad, really bad.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Commander Decklists
Without the combo kill and natural order, Karador has to evolve toward some other game plans.
The dredge approach could enable leaning more on the reanimator plan. The problem of going for a longer game is facing the ramp decks and coming out ahead despite the greater inevitability of their plan.
For now my dregde/reanimator package has been strongly relying on Bazaar :
Bazaar of Baghdad
Life from the loam
I feel that with the bans it needs to lead to a stronger endgame. Iona is paramount here, preventing Prosh and M. Wanderer from being played.
However, I don't feel we have the tools necessary to face red based ramp decks.
10/13/2013 3:58:14 PMThe Emrakul pile has a huge flaw: it is very sensitive to bribery. This simple sorcery can ruin games by itself and is almost an auto include in blue based 1vs1 decks in my area of France.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Commander Decklists
I would focus on only one doomsday pile, but as secure as possible, with a few variations if some key cards are "missing" (hand, exile, graveyard). It seems to me that the rest of the deck shall be about wasting your opponents resources and tutoring doomsday.
10/7/2013 5:31:39 PMSeingalt posted a message on [[Duel Commander]] Derevi, Empyrial Tactician: Initial DeckbuildingTo me there are two great ways to build around this incredible general in DUEL.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Commander Decklists
First you have to jump on the boat pretty fast because the "committee" will ban him after BOM and coupe de France events if it dominates (and it will !).
First : is is a flash general so we need to learn from clique and Wydween and use as much flash cards as we can. (search for flash cards)
We can borrow a manabase from jenara and be fine.
It seems to me that an all flash version would be quite nice, but it must handle Ezuri and
GoST. Our general is simply the best possible card to delay Zur almost at will.
So : creatures "must" have flash (but I agree to put a stoneforge in there).
Permanents with great tap abilities should make it (grim monolith is the first thing that came to my mind, but in a tri-colour EDH it seems just to me that we got better things to do).
I am thinking bounce lands, Gaea's Cradle, maze but also non land ones, and here I think I need help Knight of the reliquary, Birthing Pod seem perfect but doesn't have flash.
I will try to put a list together but I feel that it will soon be boring and that we need to look into cards with real combo potential with the COTB trigger of our general.

7/1/2013 6:47:53 AMPosted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Wrathberrywhy do people always want cards to be broken and simply overpowered?
I just would have liked to be able to USE this effect on a card.
Here the cost is too steep to use in a come into play deck or in a sideboard against junk tokens for example...
It will be nice as a 1 or 2 of in storm decks to lower the number of necessary spells to kill threshold but other than that, the card has really been narrowed buy the test team.
All the cards like that see NO play simply because they DON'T DO ANYTHING BY THEMSELVES !
7/1/2013 4:52:09 AMThe card could have been bordeline broken if it doubled all triggered effects, but you not only have to PAY 2 for the copy but also to tap the thing ? There are to much safety guards on this card (no board position, not free, only once, only you control) for it to be interesting in any way. Loosing a slot in a deck to only sometimes get to copy something you control is lame.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
At least if it could copy the opponent's triggers it could have been a decent SB card against 187 based decks.
THEY WASTED a very powerfull design idea in a damn too conservative and "secure card" !
I would have wanted :
When a triggered ability triggers, you may copy it unless it's source is a strionic chimer. You may choose new targets for the copy.
Here, you have something that asks to be broken into two, but that is highly sensitive to removal and serves board position.
This was the most innovative card in the set so far and they neutered it !!!
