Another piece on the ultimatum cycle! From DailyMTG.
Emergent Ultimatum BBGGGUU
Search your library for up to three monocolored cards with different names and exile them. An opponent chooses one of these cards. Shuffle that card into your library. You may cast the other cards without paying their mana costs. Exile Emergent Ultimatum.

My favorite thing about MTG Salvation is the "Ignore User" feature.
A Tooth and Nail where your opponent will try and pick the best of the three and hope for the best against the other two.
Well, kinda. It's an accurate comparison, the fact that this gives you casting triggers is an upside, but the "monocolored" restriction makes the one play you would want to do with Tooth and Nail impossible.
Seems like a really powerful card for Commander but almost unplayable anywhere else. Other Eternal formats want to cheat out either colorless cards or Progenitus and I don't think Standard has any good pile of three mono- threats that can win the game on the spot and justifies the restrictions of having such an awkward deck.
Everyone is comparing this to tooth and nail but the fact that this isnt just creatures shouldn't be ignored. Especially in a format like EDH it's easy to think of three mono colored spells that casting any two of them would win you the game. Even in standard it seems spicy, especially as it fills up with more mono colored bombs the further away from Ravnica we get.
No matter what choice your opponent makes, you get to put at least 2 creatures from your library onto the battlefield. Of course, such a combo is pretty silly since you'd want some redundancy in combo pieces and this just makes it into tooth & nail #5-8 while needing you to run a few of those other big spells
Someone else pointed out to me a more direct instant win combo than converted it into tooth & nail
Torgaar, Famine Incarnate + Sorin's Vengeance + Searing Wind is a modern legal "20 damage to your face" on the spot in all 3 permutations.
its a big improvement over cheating in emrakul + xenagos since there's far less ways to interact with it, no chump blockers, no removal, no combat step. It is blanked by leyline of sanctity however
