    Borborygmos 2.0 makes for a decent non linear, non infinite deck. Just focus on sandbagging lands and then flop then down to take out a player.

    Quote from Clucky
    Ya true, and 1 toughness does kinda hurt its viability.


    Not really... The only card I can think of that cares about his toughness is Infest or Toxic Deluge. Toxic Deluge will kill pretty much anything, and Infest isn't even good.

    Pretty simple question, actually.

    Is this card basically going to be used as Koko#2 in mono black decks?

    Given a commander with 2 or 3 mana symbols and Gary, you're going to gain nearly or as much life as if you'd sacrificed Koko, and you can use him with Conjurer's Closet.

    Good enough to play?

    Horde vs. Hydra might be fun.

    Tainted Wood, anyone?


    They seem to like putting these in side products. I think we've had Isle and field already.

    Quote from DemonDragonJ
    On the subject of pernicious deed, I shall say that I believe that that card is too valuable and/or powerful to be reprinted in this set, just as vindicate was not reprinted in Sorin versus Tibalt, although both abrupt decay and putrefy would be excellent choices for this deck.

    I also believe that memory lapse would be excellent for Jace's deck, since it would fit with his personality and abilities, and it has not been reprinted in some time.


    Putrefy was in both RTR block and IvG, both with new arts. They don't need a third print this soon.

    Seems odd for him to have the Nyx stars weaved in if he's not a god, right?

    All the enchantment creatures have stars, not just the gods.

    Quote from ValentineX
    Yes as in being the god of time it fits his theme of manipulating time and space to his advantage as long as he has followers to back him and yes he is a bit complex but as a Legendary Mythic Rare god of time I think he has every right to be but what about his power level.


    I think making flashy or hexproof dudes for 3 devo is fine, but the whole needing 3 of blue AND three of green is a lot of burden to put on the player.

    How about like 5 of either?

    Actually, here's a few corrections:

    Quote from ValentineX
    Also to mention in standard I run Prime Speaker Bant.

    [Needs a Name] 4UG
    Enchantment - (U)
    Whenever you cast a permanent spell during your opponents turn, draw a card and reveal the drawn card if it shares a type with the target permanent spell then put a copy of the revealed card into the battlefield.


    Kruphix, God of Time 3UG
    Legendary Enchantment Creature - God (M)
    Flash Indestructible
    ~ isn't a creature if your devotion to blue or green is less than three.
    As long as your devotion to blue is more than three, you may cast sorceries and enchantments as if they had flash.
    As long as your devotion to green is more than three, all other permanents you control have hexproof.
    As long as your devotion to green and blue is more than three, at the beginning of your upkeep search your library for a permanent spell card, reveal it and put it in your hand. That spell has flash for as long as your control ~.
    5/5


    Beast of Kruphix 3UG
    Creature - Beast (U)
    Trample Flash
    Whenever you cast a permanent spell during your opponents turn put 2 +1/+1 counters on ~.
    4/4


    Time Lash 1U
    Instant - (U)
    Return target nonland permanent to it's owners hand that player puts a nonland permanent from his or her hand to the battlefield with equal or less than the converted mana cost of that card.


    Leader of the Pack 1WG
    Creature - Lion (U)
    Trample
    Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, put a +1/+1 counter on a target creature you control.
    3/3

    Meletis Champion 2UW
    Creature - Human Soldier (R)
    Hexproof
    Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, target player reveals their hand. You may choose a nonland card from their hand and gain life equal to its converted mana cost and put a +1/+1 counter on ~.
    3/4


    All of those are just standardization/grammar, not changing the functionality.

    I think he's a bit complicated, to be honest. He has 4 total devotion checks.

    Kruphix should search for a permanent card, not a permanent spell.

    Quote from NateTheArtificer
    In a crossover with Theros in mind, I came up with this:

    Deadly Alliance
    Version 2.0
    Deadly Alliance :2mana::symu::symb:
    Enchantment

    As ~ enters the battlefield, name a creature. Creature spells with that name can't be cast unless unless he or she pays life equal to that spells converted mana cost.

    At the beginning of each players' upkeep, that player returns a creature he or she controls with the same name as the named card to it's owners hand.

    Version 1.0

    Deadly Alliance :2mana::symu::symb:
    Enchantment

    As ~ enters the battlefield, name a creature. Creature spells with that name can't be cast unless unless he or she pays life equal to that spells converted mana cost.

    At the beginning of each end step, each player sacrifices all creatures the with the same name as the named card.


    Wording on this one is off.

    Emrakul is banned, no need to exile him on the stack anymore.

    Quote from Elvish Sniper
    Hinder and Spell Crumple are staples, tucking someone's commander is super strong.

    Counterspell, of course, is very efficient.

    I also play dismiss from time to time.


    Dismiss is so underused. Think about how often you cast Cryptic Command for tap or Bounce in edh and it becomes really obviously good.

    Quote from Knorke
    Maybe the actual card has those card types: Legendary Enchantment Land Creature - Mountain God:D


    Legendary Enchantment Land Creature Planeswalker - Mountain Satyr God Xenagos.

    This should be in UN3. Make another BFM.

    Azami meets all your criteria, and is a competitive choice. My vote.

    If that's not your style, Blue Braids is my next choice. Getting to play essentially EDH Show and Tell is fun. Although, Jhoira does this job better IMO.

    How do we feel about Batterskull? Seems like a good extreme curve topper that can be tutored for by Steelshaper and we all know about Stoneforge.

    I also came to ask about Banisher Priest. Seems like a good addition to FH, or a potential upgrade.

    I took out Peek and Cyclonic Rift in favor of these two cards in my build.

    Also, at what point did Sower come out, and why?

    Edit: just noticed no Minamo. Why is that?
