    Instant and sorcery one is insane - once you ritual into turnabout you get to copy it infinite times (literally any ritual being your 3rd spell is infinite mana), if it's boomerang you bounce the field, if it draws cards in any capacity it draws you deck, if it is lightning bolt you win, etc. It needs a limit of once per turn or mana cost or something.

    There is a new set coming out called War of the Spark, becuase it hasn't been released yet he shouldn't have any already. Specifically for newer players, packs tend to exciting.

    I remember when proc meant protection. Paladin en-vec has proc red and proc black.

    Honestly, if everyone is fine with it - unban it for the day. My wife has Rofellos in her elf deck, she announces it at the start and then people get to decide if the card is that bad. If anyone says nay, she just treats it like a forest - the card is good but by no means backbreaking (as a commander I could see it). The beauty of a casual formaat is that the rules are really up to the group - alter them as you wish. Me and some friends even did banless edh for a while and nothing too bad happened.

    Pick your standard - pick any sequence of sets that have been in a standard with each other, build a deck. Play onslaught-mirrodin vs tempest-urza's

    Why are we comparing this to Sisay's Ring - would Khalni Gem be more appropriate?

    Devoid cards still have a color identity of whatever mana symbols appear on the card, much like how lands still have color identity - CR 903.4 for more information.

    I was in no way going for the most efficient - simply the first thing I though of. OP wanted a combo to do a thing, and I was really just working backwards from there.

    If you have a way to infinitly untap say tidewater minion or kiora's follower then a rishadan port and one other land outside you engine will do it. Maybe freed from the real and a rock that makes at least UU.

    1 - tap the rock
    2 - tap to untap rock
    3 - activate FFtR to untap creature
    (Infinite U mana achieved)
    4 - use port to tap city of brass
    5 - tap creature to untap the city
    6 - activate FFtR
    7 - tap creature to untap port
    (Infinite untaps and tap of city achieved and it only took 4 cards plus the city and donate)

  • posted a message on If you do X, I'm going to scoop
    Quote from Dunharrow »
    So, I definitely have seen some voltron decks scoop when you kill their general. I remember someone scooping to Song of the Dryads once. You know they have interaction to deal with it... they just feel like their whole game plane is ruined and that they cannot salvage a win. I think in that case I keep playing, but a lot of people scoop figuring they will not have fun sitting at the board not doing anything meaningful.

    I say let them, but also that it is lame.

    Yeah this kind of thing sucks. I was at low life, up against a guy with three or four 4/4 angel tokens just waiting for his turn to kill me. I draw Unflinching Courage and cast it on my 6/6 creature...since I had Rafiq of the Many out, this attack was going to gain me a ton of life.

    I couldn't attack the angel token guy since he had Island Sanctuary out, so I look at my other opponent and say, "nothing personal but I need the life." He scoops on the attack so I deal no damage and get no life...I die on the other guy's turn. This kind of "tactical" scooping annoys me.

    I would never play again with a person who scooped to stop me from gaining life. It is so petty.

    Scooping to orevent triggers is assanine - as a player still in the game and unaffected, I tell the other player to take their triggers anyway (even if it mean I lose soon). One to shame the scooper, and two so others will grant me that courtesy some other time. Make no mistake - I am 100% in favor of doing everything you can to spite the player killing you, but only within the game.

    That said, if I have been screwed on red the whole game, have done nothing, have only red cards in hand and am not having fun because I am not playing the game. When I windmill slam my mountain on the field and someone stripmines it ove a cradle - I will inform the table I scoop to that play. Not in advance, but if I am not going to get to play a game anyway, may as well actually not play a game.

  • posted a message on Mana Burn?
    Guys - it stops storm from "just seeing if I can draw a win con," it stops infinite mana from necessarily being a good thing - you need to think through how much you will actually use if you don't necessarily win, it makes cards like coal stoker and cathodian make you care about what back up you have.

    It maks he game different, bot better or worse - it suppresses some strategies better (burn, aggro) and others worse (storm, artifacts). So it depends on where you stand on like 10 other threads around here if it is good or not.

  • posted a message on looking for more cards like repercussion
    Quote from schweinefett »

    jackal pup if you don't mind getting hit.

    i don't think there's anything else like repercussion anywhere else in magic.

    I'm sure Jackal Pup isn't what OP wants. But Stuffy Doll lets you hit an opponent.

    The problem is OP doesn't know what he wants so we are playing a gane of hot and cold with no thermometer.
