Quote from Lithl »Yesterday, I was playing my silver-bordered Happy Holiday deck, which I recently added the Ponies: the Galloping charity cards to.
Princess Twilight Sparkle's activated ability wants you to "control" the rest of the Mane Six, not control "cards named" or "creatures named".
Mishra's Toy Workshop requires using toys to represent the tokens created by a spell/ability cast/activated with its mana.
I think you know where I'm going with this.
I cast a kicked Rite of Replication with Toy Workshop mana, and started pulling a series of Pony toys out of my pocket; the table started laughing, since I hadn't used them at all earlier in the day (I had never drawn Rarity, and previous uses of Toy Workshop I had used a Barrel of Monkeys). I didn't also have the mana to activate Twilight's ability on the same turn, but the RoR had targeted an Ulvenwald Hydra, so it was a good play even if I got board-wiped.
The goblin tribal player had a Sulfuric Vortex out, and was able to knock me down to 1 life on his turn. Of course, Twilight's ability can be activated in response to the Vortex upkeep trigger. Everypony wins!
(Side note: I have so far cast Nightmare Moon with this deck three times. Every single time, she dies before I even untap with her. )

Foiled again by the reserve list. I guess we shall all have to purchase our EDH dual lands not from Wizards.
A little unsure as to these being premade decks. Boosters would have been fine. Then again rarity doesn't make much sense for non-tournament playable cards Makes it easier to get all of the cards.
