    One of my absolute favorite things about this is how nicely he ignores the legends rule... You play your second copy and get a golem, who cares if the tapped first copy goes to the yard?

    But as others have said, 1 mana hybrids, Manamorphose, Burning-Tree Emissary, Wild Cantor and Hero of Precinct One could make an interesting kitchen table deck or potentially better.

    Looks like Arcbound Worker has become obsolete with this new cat and the flying modular insect thing. Very cool to see new cool modular cards. I hope they can give a little more edge to hardened scales (and whatever is left of different affinity decks hehe)

    I think there's a lot of tension in deck building with the modular cat. Mono G Hardened Scales only runs about 12 coloured lands and 8 of those are combat tricks that happen to tap for G. I don't see a lot of room for white in the mix. GW counters runs a fairly low number of artifact creatures Stonecoil Serpent is a common include but that's about it, leaving no targets for the cat's counters. Affinity may be the only easy home for the cat because it runs colour filtering but that list seems pretty set (and as you mentioned unpopular) these days.

    In any thing I think some new modular variant may rise up from the new modular 1 drops.

    Super hanky but I kind of want to play it in Boros or Naya enchantments with Archons and Omen of the Sun and similar fun things.

    But, there seem to be a lot of options from Treasure to Food to armies in a can.

    I know it's a lot of extra rules text but I kind of wish these modular creatures with abilities used ability counters they could throw to the creature the become amalgamated into. Much like Ironheart Chimaera and friends.

    I think it would require a slight rules tweak to Modular that should be fairly hard to abuse.

    Looking at harvest from archi....That’s a Common?!

    the treefolk: Squirrel power my lord squirrels might be a S tier tribe in edh at this rate.

    anthem: WIZARDS ITS IMOSSIBLE TO NOT PUT THAT IN A DECK WITH GREEN INVOLVED IT CAN SEE TOKEN CREATURES TOO!


    edit for the tree folk: OH SHOOT! OMG! IT INFINITES WITH Ivy Lane Denizen!


    On turn 3 no less. Still, doesn't provide haste or protection so something like T2 Rhythm of the Wild, T3 make more mana T4 play both halves might be better.

    But I'm not sure that's good enough. The combo is protected till you win but you might be 1 turn too late.

    So how do the counters stack in regards to the storm copies ETBing?

    you get x 2+x/2+x oozes where x is equal to your storm count.


    I'm not sure that's quite right. The storm trigger will resolve and create a number of copies equal to the number spells cast before. The copies will resolve individually and thus enter the battlefield one at a time, triggering any abilities as a result which will resolve before any further copies of Aeve. So assuming nothing affects the number of oozes you control between copies resolving, each one will be +1/+1 more than the previous. Also, it is not a triggered ability; Aeve enters the battlefield with the counters as a replacement effect.


    Yes, the more I think on it and he more I agree with that. So, x oozes, the largest being x+2/x+2 and each token being incrementally smaller.


    x+1 oozes.


    That's an excellent point.

    Weirdly I think that may actually be a good budget ballista for those who can't get their hands on them.

    I kind of like the idea of running 8 five colour spells in some kind of oops no lands version of evoke.dec

    There should be reminder text explaining how many counters tokens will have.

    I think it would be quite hard to make reminder text that added something without being quite lengthy.

    If it's anything like any other multiple things happening at the same time then all the spells resolve before the abilities go in the stack and you get x 2+x/2+x oozes where x is equal to your storm count.

    Weirdly, if there's anything that can be shaved by 1, this might be worth running to avoid having all 4 copies of Ravager locked out with chalice on 2 or some mass exile effect.

    Individually - each of these spells would not or barely make commander decks. Thus his ability is approximately a strixhaven learn. The exception being black lotus - let me rewrite this card as a much more powerful card. I wouldn't play this - I'd take the eldraine King over this in a heartbeat.

    WURGB
    T: Scry 2, draw a card
    T: create 3 treasure tokens. Use this ability if Gavin is not "spent". Put a "spent" counter on Gavin.
    5/5

    (If he could constantly tap to bank 3 mana he could actually be good/combo engine)

    Just an FYI- I would have just given him the ability T: learn, but for whatever reason the rules committee still feels a Sideboard is too powerful for commander. The number of cards that are suffering from that ruling is growing year to year and I doubt that any number of magic bullets in your Sideboard is going to make burning wish as powerful as demonic tutor.


    I think 1B, tap: destroy target non-black creature, it can't be regenerated is a fairly good ability.

    I'd go do far as to say that with the just spoilt priest of reanimation there may be something here.
