Apr 16, 2019aguyyouknow posted a message on [WAR] War of the Spark Previews: Modern DiscussionOn the other hand, it DOES work with cumulative upkeep cards (except ones that are enchantments), so maybe it could be used with those to break things?Posted in: Modern

Apr 9, 2019Rather than being a budget Mentor, it seems like she would work extremely well WITH mentor (or young pyromancer). Create a token, then copy the mentor using the token, and you're getting 3 tokens per non-creature spell cast for the turn (2 monks, 1 servo), which is absolutely insane.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Apr 9, 2019What are people's thoughts on the new Saheeli for this deck?Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
It's basically an extra Young Pyromancer or Monastery Mentor that lets you double up on your pyromancer/mentor triggers if you copy one of them, which seems absolutely insane. I can absolutely see lines where Pyromancer gets played on turn 2, Saheeli on turn 3, then you just go off with 1 mana spells on turn 4 and get 11 tokens. Am I overvaluing this card?
For the math of turn 4, Pyromancer and Saheeli on the field:
-Cast 1 instant/sorcery: 1 elemental token, 1 servo token
-Copy YP with the servo: 1 elemental token, 1 YP token
-Cast 1 instant/sorcery: 3 elemental tokens, 1 YP token, 1 servo token
-Cast 1 instant/sorcery: 5 elemental tokens, 1 YP token, 2 servo tokens
-Cast 1 instant/sorcery: 7 elemental tokens, 1 YP token, 3 servo tokens
-End of turn final: 7 elemental tokens, 4 servo tokens
Apr 3, 2019I must be missing something. How do you Reshape into Citadel if you don't have 8 mana? You have to pay 6 mana into the X cost in order to search out Citadel no matter what, don't you?Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Jan 4, 2019Since you're already going to be able to Living End at instant speed, why not run the older version of Emrakul in Emrakul, the Aeons Torn rather than the newer one?Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
EDIT: Heck, you could even take a page from the book that is the currently popular Arclight Phoenix decks and run Lightning Axe as a way to get your fatty into the yard for a sudden win out of nowhere on the enemy's turn by casting lightning axe into electrodominance!
It seems like an interesting take on the breach deck, though I'm not sure if it's actually stronger than a UR living end deck built around cyclers, with Ancestral Vision and As Foretold as an additional 0 cost spell to cheat out and an additional way to cheat out 0 cost suspend spells, respectively.
Apr 12, 2018I'm actually wondering if Artificer's Assistant is better for Blue Steel than Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. There's an easier equivalent to replace - take out Judge's Familiar for it, in theory - I think getting to scry every time you cast an artifact may be stronger than the 5-7 redundancy of the force spike effect on Familiar. On the other hand, Traxos would probably either have to take the slot of one of the Lodestone Golem or the 1 of Wurmcoil Engine. Golem is really powerful disruption against most decks, and the resiliency to board wipes from Wurmcoil seems to strong to pass up, especially just for another giant beater. Maybe Traxos is better than 1 of the Golems in the right meta, though?Posted in: Modern
Jan 3, 2018aguyyouknow posted a message on "Golden Guardian" // "Gold-Forge Garrison" .:. BigMagic SpoilerI could actually see potentially playing this in tokens in standard as a 1 or 2 of. You always have a bunch of extra tokens lying around, and a VERY easy sacrifice outlet in Hidden Stockpile, so flipping the thing shouldn't be too difficult to do. And once you've flipped it, it generates ENORMOUS tokens that can pretty easily take over the game (adanto first fort is already pretty strong, so imagine having 2 different lands that can generate tokens, with one of those generating 4/4s)Posted in: The Rumor Mill

I think all the RB Legends in this set are really cool options for "Fun" Commanders. I just hope Mary O'Kill gets a few more Killbots so I'm not stuck using all changlings.Quote from Empathogen »
That still doesn't make it okay.
The only reason I'm not more annoyed is the fact that BR *really* needs more options for "Fun" Commanders.
Speaking of that... I was thinking. What happens if you swap Mary on the field for, say, Nameless Inversion? Her ability doesn't specify that it needs to be a Killbot creature, so... how would that even work?
Nov 15, 2017I mean, I'm assuming that there's more than literally just Mary and this one killbot that's been previewed. In theory, say you have this 2/1 killbot in your hand and they're attacking/blocking with a Mary (with your own on the field, and no mana up on their end or no killbot in hand) or a bigger killbot. Theoretically, you could switch your 2/1 in hand with their bigger creature, creating an unfavorable situation for the opponent, while also effectively stealing the opponent's creature to cast at a later pointPosted in: The Rumor Mill
Nov 15, 2017Hold on... Since the article doesn't mention it... could you use Mary's activated ability to effectively steal an opponent's Mary O'Kill (assuming they don't have the mana up to activate it in response to flip it back to hand) or killbot, because it doesn't specify which side of the battlefield the target needs to be on?Posted in: The Rumor Mill

A fast is a period of time where one starves oneself. It used to be believed by a lot of different groups (including a lot of the native population of the Americas) that a fast could bring you prophetic visions and other such otherworldly information. So no, a blood fast (as in, Arguel, as a vampire, is fasting which means he's not drinking blood) that leads to him having visions that lead him to a lost temple of a forbidden god is RIGHT up the alley of "mesoamerican tropes".Quote from YuriTheGodslayer »I hope it isn't the real card. The name must be " Arguel's Blood Feast " . " Arguel's Blood Fast " means nothing unless it's a too subtle joke.
Aug 29, 2017I believe that the design team at Wizards (or at least Rosewater) has stated a number of times that they're never doing the "Tribal" super type again, because it had a lot of really weird rulings that they determined players found unintuitive. -shrug- it's too bad, hopefully they figure out something that works similar to it without the messy nature of the rules baggage at some point in the future.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
