Quote from Onering »People need to stop acting like painter/grindstone being in the format changes anything outside of perhaps cEDH. The combo existed already with RiP/Void Helm. Sure, painter stone is faster and colorless, but it's not new, and unless I'm reading it wrong it can only take out one player per turn like RiP Helm. Blood Clock requires more setup but kills the table.
Quote from shermanido37 »There has got to be something broken we can do with Painter's Servant. We can Muddle for it, as well as Tribute Mage for it, so it would be pretty accessible, though sadly it's not Recruitable.
The obvious combo is Grindstone, but it seems pretty slow and only kills one player at a time.
Quote from shermanido37 »I just cannot sympathize with Tyrant. Admittedly the static ability is pretty good, but it all just feels so clunky on a 8 mana card, and the body does not match the power of that mana cost.
If we compare it to, say, God-Eternal Oketra, a card which I rather dislike in this deck, I'd give the edge to Oketra:
Costs less colored mana, and less mana overallInevitability (hard to get rid of)Deals more damage and has higher toughness, so a better body (excluding evasion)Creates big bodies instead of bouncing stuff, so can actually finish the game
If we agree that the best case scenario for both cards is Whitemane Lion that costs W, I think it's a clear win to her.
