    If you are using colored eldrazi, morophon works wonders, especially with jodah and fist of sun's.

    Damn, that is unfortunate. I figured the ability would override his power and toughness since it is not X and instead constant depending on the cards in graveyard.

    I might take lord out since he no longer offers value.

    I also want to point out that when scion become mirroring, he is no longer legendary. (Until he reverts back)

    Quick question, but if I have a counter on Lord of Extinction and copy him with Volrath, the Shapestealer, would Volrath be a 7/5 a *+7/*+5 or would he still be a */*?

    Emory is a 99 card to me. I want to play artifact decks that allow me to run red (and white would also be nice)

    Of course urza, Karn and arcum breaks that thought as they are good without other colors.

    Syr Gwyn is appealing to me quite a bit. I might have finally found my Knight tribal commander.

    Your deck seems fine, in fact t can be better tuned (And come on it just dino tribal. if they are whining about that they have their own issues to work out.

    That said I do have one suggestion to make Remove Domri. there are much better cards to run. You are running the immortal sun which (while may not seem like much) can indeed ruin his only appeal. I would switch him out for Rhythm of the wild. (Simply due to teh fact that it offers more for the same cost. (Domri's static doesn't account for much as there are also better anthems out there)

    I run Sarkhan the Masterless in my Dragon deck and yes i do run the immortal sun. But sarkhan's static more than makes up for it. If I play him and the sun is not out, great i can get a dragon. if the sun is out, great, you probably won;t be able to hit me if i have enough dragons out. When my dragon count begins hitting 10, 20, 50, 10000 your creatures are probably gonna die before they connect. (my actual count for most dragons out in a single game was well over 400. (I swear, glacial chasm is a pain.

    You seem to have a good theme going already. I say for. Other than scarecrow creatures you should ook into legendaries to represent the horror monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, the mummy, Wolfman) I say find a way to give candy (maybe slight donation theme)

    It’s not over yet!
    Split second
    You get an emblem that says “at the beginning of EACH upkeep, of this is not an extra turn, you lose the game.”
    End the turn.
    You gain an extra turn immediately after the one you just ended (even if it would not have been your turn due to turn order).



    Spark double

    apocalypse, possibly without the discarding.

    Obviously make all of them colorless so that any deck can use them and/or whatever you need to do to make them proper trump cards.

    They are colorless and have no Mana cost.

    It's not over yes has weird wording and kind of defeats the purpose of a trump card.

    I like randuirs suggestion.

  • posted a message on Oko, possible solution to planeswalker commanders
    Your right maybe something like this.

    Oko 1UU
    If Oko is your commander search your library for a planeswalker at the beginning of the game and exile it with a shape counter.
    WUBRG: exile Oko and return him to the battle field as a copy of a planeswalker exiled with a shape counter.

    I haven’t come across people playing morophan do most people keep to the tribe or are they mostly good stuff style decks?
    another option to really make him annoying could be the ability to remove another PW. Maybe from your hand (to minimize damage) giving you a second option to become an different PW than what you were at the start of the game.

    Coalition Relic instead of Ingot?

    I also never like Cataracts because it's essentially a colorless land. And you probably don't have to be playing Unclaimed Territory.

    In the right mana base, Cascading cataracts is not a land at all, as generally you can get 5 colors. (then again, filtering three mana from a sol ring and a gilded lotus may be worth while. (hmm, I might look into that. I have a cataracts around. And it can produce C as well. Which is more useful than you think.

    Same with unclaimed territory. the benefit is it comes into play untapped, the drawback is the color mana is only for creatures. In my dragon deck that is 29 cards. But you still get a land that taps for C

    Wait wait wait you have the OG duals, Shock and Fetches? that si 30 cards right there that help a lot. Then the last 7 should be utility (Reflecting pool, Command tower. If it is a tribal deck Cavern of Souls)

    Fetches allow you to filter out the colors you need. i play a 5 color dragon deck and having all duals and shocks with the fetches allows me to search up the missing color. I have played MANY games (well over 100) and have only been mana screwed/a few times. (Usually after my deck has been played a few times that night.

    I need to know how common Ruination, Back to Basics and Blood Moon are in your playgroup. (Bloodmoon usually locked me out of a game... until Morophon came about. Now it seldom hurts me.)

    I cannot answer for sure as I am the only person who has one at my LGS. I play tribe with him originally it was changeling tribal with lords.

    I dismantled that deck, and now he is in dragons. (I don't see much use in non tribal though)

    Interesting idea but there are a few drawbacks.
    1) you can only use blue PWs thanks to oko's color identity.
    2) his PW version is busted.
    3) his cost is unfair. I mean even if you could cast any color commander you wanted in this way. 3U for one of the bolas commanders is pretty broken.

    Find a way to allow mm ore than just blue, and then we can talk. I mean I like ilthe idea of having a PW in your command zone. I also like the idea of being able to change depending on the the game, without changing your deck.

    I would love to brew this guy with you and make him more versatile.

    Here is a new Idea that clean up a bit of things.
    Oko, Brother to All

    If Oko is your commander, you may begin the game by searching your Library for a Planeswalker card and exile it.

    You may pay the exiled Planeswalker's mana cost to cast Oko.

    Oko enters the battlefield as a copy of the exiled Planeswalker card.


    You could also add a clause like
    Eminence- Whenever you cast a spell that contains a color that is not of the exiled planewalker's color identity counter that spell.

    It really just allows you to play a PW as a commander, while detering people from playing 5 color good stuff.

    Unlike Trump Wall, trump cards are not a reference to Donald trump. They are actually an addition to a format I play every week. Commander. The format is fun and I like to add more every now and then, just to shake things up. So i added a card type I call Trump cards.

    Trump cards not use the stack (And thus cannot be responded to, countered or removed from the stack in any way)

    Trump cards have a clause on a requirement to use them and since they are used up, that is it. you can only use a trump card once per game. Since they are not in a zone they can also not be discarded or stolen.

    So I am looking for effects. One trump card was basically Timetwister, which is a great effect, but a little too overpowered when another trump card was just a Fog effect. (Granted if you are at 11 life,only going to 10 is pretty good if they "alpha strike" you)

    I really want there to be a fair payoff to play these. I plan to print out a playset and sleeve them up so Each player can pick one trump card to play with and set the others aside, meaning more than one player may have the same trump card. Which also means I only need about 5 or 6 trump cards total. (last time I had 10 but they were unbalanced, and you chose at random. So the card you got may not have helped you in any way. A dragon deck that has expensive creatures coming out will not like a trump card that is basically a Damnation. Granted a creature less deck may love it since they are not losing their stuff. (not having creatures))

    So I need some help.
