  • posted a message on Losing an "If this becomes untapped" ability. It still triggers, right?
    Suppose I control a Quicksilver Elemental and anything that taps to gain control until becoming untapped, such as Rubinia Soulsinger.

    The Quicksilver Elemental copies Rubinia's ability and proceeds to tap to gain control of target creature until Quicksilver Elemental becomes untapped. At the end of the turn, the elemental loses this ability, and later untaps.

    Because the untap is a delayed trigger from the activation, you would still lose control of the target creature, correct?

    Well rather than another Aurelia, the Warleader, how about the preventing kind?

    If an opponent would begin an additional combat phase, that player skips that phase instead.

    Just because that holds true for most tutors so far doesn't mean it's a set-in-stone rule. Making it a sorcery could be considered the drawback for its power. You screw over the next draw for everyone else, but in a vacuum your opponents have a chance to disrupt you back before you get your tutored card.

    Chelonian Marketback 3GG
    Creature - Turtle
    T, sacrifice a land: Put three +1/+1 counters on ~.
    T, remove a counter from ~: Put a 0/2 blue Turtle creature token onto the battlefield.
    T, tap two other untapped creatures you control: Return target land from your graveyard to your hand.
    (1/6)

    Eh.. It doesn't feel like Jace. But anything with other colors doesn't feel like Jace, so oh well.

    Jace, the Infinite Mind WUBRG
    Planeswalker - Jace
    +2: Until your next turn, target permanent you control gains protection from the color of your choice.
    -3: The owner of target nonland permanent shuffles it into his or her library.
    -15: Reveal the top twenty cards of your library. For each color, you may cast a card of that color from among the revealed cards without paying its mana cost. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.
    (4)

    Next: A planeswalker in a race that has not been represented so far.

    A little bit board wipe, a little bit flicker. Even though you have time counters to help with memory issues, that's still potentially a lot of permanents to be shoved to the side of the table each with a different number of counters to keep track of every upkeep. I feel like it's a little too complicated to be fun for that reason, but that aside I would still put it at 6 mana at least for the power of etb effects.

    Abstain WU
    Instant
    You can't be the target of spells and abilities until end of turn.

    Mechanically, it's alright.

    Flavor-wise, I'm not sure where it would fit in. Why does this lowly warrior's appearance make a powerful planeswalker more loyal? It's the planeswalkers that generally tell the others what to do, not the other way around.

  • posted a message on Feldon of the Third Path
    Quote from coyotemoon722 »
    I love this guy in the Scrap deck. Just keep recycling Wurmcoils and making 3/3s when they die.

    Pretty much this. Sure, the flavor suggests making an artifact copy of a normal creature, but it's obvious why this is in an artifact-heavy commander deck. Feldon is pretty crazy with artifact creatures, especially if your deck has ways of saccing them for extra benefit instead of letting them die at end of turn.

    I think Scion is arguably better since it can tutor for broken things, but the two of these together would be frightening. This is probably too good because of the potential to use the ability over and over in one turn, combining the abilities of different dragons that should never go together. I can't think of any examples off the top of my head, but making a Necrotic Ooze for dragons is quite dangerous. It should probably be limited to one use per turn like Skinshifter

    Is this a fair cost for something as potentially broken as this?

    Pays-for-itself-zombie 4B
    Creature - Zombie (R)
    Delve
    Dredge 4

    Stuffy upper-class pomp it is! With a revival of flagbearer style mechanics.

    Bort, of House Blethlahem 2RWU
    Legendary Creature - Human Noble
    Hexproof
    Spells your opponents cast must target at least one creature you control with the lowest toughness if able.
    RWU: ~ loses hexproof until end of turn. Change the target of target spell to ~ if able.
    "Declaration of war, you say? Go see Grelp; he handles those."
    (2/4)

    Next: An opposing noble who has a bit more respect for their subjects.
