Marchesa only checks for +1/+1 counters (not many cards use +2/+2 counters). Cards that give a creature +2/+2 until end of turn aren't the same as counters and don't work with Marchesa triggered abilities.Quote from Spizzygamer111 »I'd also like to know if +2/+2 counters could work with Marchesa's ability. If so, cards that give +2/+2 would be useful

That's actually a reprint from Guilds of Ravnica. But the new art is decent.Quote from Melkor »that new counterspell is nice. 4 mana is a lot, but it's a hard counter and 'shuffle your 4 best spells up for another potential go around' is worth 2 mana.
Cathar Commando seems impressive. White rarely gets creatures that can hit artifacts at common.
Aug 6, 2021An interesting one I came across today is Llanowar Druid with Strider Harness, land auras like Utopia Sprawl, Wild Growth, and Abundant Growth, and Grim Harvest with Bloodrite Invoker as the finisher.Posted in: MTGO Pauper

Also, note that normally equipping a creature can only be done at sorcery speed (during one of that player's main phases with the stack empty). Some cards let you equip at instant speed but it's not common. Leonin Shikari is the only card that I'm aware of that can do that.
As for your question, Murder will destroy the Llanowar Elves. Your opponent cannot move equipment on your turn unless something allows them to do that.
Robe of Stars can only save the Llanowar Elves if it was already equipped to them when you cast Murder and your opponent then responded and phased it out.
Jul 24, 2021I've enjoyed working with both. They're standard includes for my Ux control lists these days (NOTE for others reading, my lists don't include infinite combos so YMMV). They seem well positioned in your Nevinyrral's list with all the extra sac-card draw. The biggest challenge I ran into initially was wanting to hold the Clear the Mind too long rather than using it earlier to just recycle a few cards.Posted in: Variant Commander

Someone on Reddit said Friday but I didn't see a source for that so take it with a grain of salt.Quote from FunkyDragon »When are the commander decks being spoiled? I can't seem to find that info.
Jun 29, 2021Based on some brief Googling I think there are only 16 different decks widely available plus another 2 only released in Japan. WOTC has released 4 per year since 2018. Most (I assume) are balanced against the others in their respective year but I'm not certain how any would fair if pitted versus decks from other release years.Posted in: Magic General

Each of the decks on MTG Goldfish have approximate prices listed as well as links to purchase the full list via either TCG Player or Card Kingdom.Quote from Deeeden »Is there any way to search for names or pricing on these decks?
Jun 26, 2021Assuming you'll be playing 1v1, you may want to look into creating a Pauper Battle Box (8+ deck archetypes from MTG's commons-only format). The format has lots of different options although it's a little light on Angels. It may be challenging to acquire complete decks but MTGgoldfish.com may be a good starting point to check out the format and amassing a few decks.Posted in: Magic General

I plan on using a d6 to clearly indicate which room I'm in for the regular size ones.Quote from migrena »As game pieces they are terrible. Very clunky. There is a lot of text on them and the marker for currently occupied room needs to be tiny. In paper this will be annoying to use and I can imagine accidental displacement of marker will be a thing.
They touched on this briefly in the Weekly MTG stream yesterday. They are planning on having other stock D&D classes represented in the set and didn't want the Party mechanic to spoil others' fun.Quote from migrena »And btw why not reprint party mechanic in DnD tie-in set instead of inventing new one? It seems like perfect fit for a DnD set and was already proven to be safe for the game.

Yes, they can block five other attacking creatures. Assuming said attacking creatures do not have flying or some other form of evasion.
Also, we do have a Magic Rulings subforum specifically for in-game questions like this.

Auras that change the land into a basic land like Spreading Seas or Contaminated Ground.
More heavy handed means like Blood Moon, Blood Sun, or Back to Basics would also work.
