This guy is kinda funny in Vintage with his little brother.
T1: Black Lotus or Swamp+Dark Ritual and any Mox, or Mishra's Workshop and Mox Jet, Grim Monolith or Sol Ring, Su-Chi, Sacrifice or Burnt Offering or Culling the Weak, Su-Chi Cave Guard
T2: a black mana source, Sacrifice or Burnt Offering and that's a hardcast Emrakul right there.
Obviously that'd take an amazing opening hand and it'd probably be more like turn three or four, but still funny.

Oct 12, 20222004 Standard: hm the only two decks that are viable right now are Ravager Affinity and Ravager Affinity hate, basically the very definition of a card game being broken, let's ban just Skullclamp and wait a few months to see where that goesPosted in: The Rumor Mill
2022 Standard: to provide a small push against the color black's play rate among competitive decks,
Boy have they done a 180.
Aug 12, 2022I feel like this will be printed eventually. If there were a permanent printed with "if ~ is on the battlefield, ~ cannot leave the battlefield", is there anything in the rules that could make it? Darksteel Mutation and its ilk notwithstanding. I kinda feel like replacement effects for losing the game might do it.Posted in: Magic Rulings

Sixth Edition Llanowar Elves flavor text:
"One bone broken for every twig snapped underfoot. —Llanowar penalty for trespassing"
"Twigs broken underfoot in Llanowar tend to return the favor."
Aug 5, 2022Well you're not invited to Thanksgiving! I've always had to tell my relatives that it's an investment, in that I can get money out by quitting same as I put money into it. I can't just go with "cracking packs feels and smells good".Posted in: Magic General
Edit: if you're a financial advisor why the ***** are you not telling people these lands will appreciate, of ******* course they will it's 3/3 for doing that
Aug 5, 2022Full-arts were around before Unstable. I trust they'll continue to please, and since the basics are from a set that does poorly, there's your scarcity. That probably is the motivation for buying, the other being its intended purpose which is a fun draft experience.Posted in: Magic General
Edit: you seen the basics for this? They're a homage to, and better than, Unglued. They'll sell just fine. This is actually the soundest investment idea I can offer to you (not legal advice).
Aug 5, 2022The number isn't arbitrary though. It's four or eight and it's not a loop.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Edit: okay I can probably concede the predictable part. Although part of me thinks what conditional actions exactly could happen in the middle of figuring out how spells are added to the stack and resolve
Son of edit: so maybe agreement can get past most of that?
Aug 5, 2022I believe Spectral Chaos is exactly what you're looking for.Posted in: Magic General
There are many notes there regarding what cards eventually became of this (some in Un sets). My favorite "holy ***** this would be broken now" cards are Mana Beetle (Buried Alive is just add nine mana okay), Mana Magnet, all the Antimana cards (they'd be Better Than Black Lotus with just two of the right duals in play and keep getting better), Stunt Double (possible Ninjitsu idea and okay Griselbrand turn two without acceleration), Unnatural Selection (imagine this with the Mirage tutors), Lunar Ring, and Moonstone which became Heartstone.

We know how this works by now- there's been a few threads on it. What I'd like to know is do the rules allow shortcuts on multiple coin flips? Basically, what I want to do is roll a d4 with both in play, 1 being two losses, 2 and 3 being loss and a win, and 4 being two wins.
If yes, can I do similar with Krark's Thumb in play as well and a d8?
May 26, 2022Fossil Find is interesting for having an effect that only matters in Legacy and Vintage. I'd use Relic of Progenitus for manipulating my graveyard back when I played around with Volrath's Shapeshifter.Posted in: Magic General
May 26, 2022Posted in: Magic GeneralQuote from TheOnlyOne652089 »Well your pet is not as unique as you might think, as there are a bunch of morph creatures that can counter stuff:
https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=(oracle:morph oracle:turned oracle:counter oracle:spell)
I did say hard counter but you got me on two of those. More overcosted countermagic to add to my Commander decks!
I think Summary Dismissal counts as unique- of the very few spells or effects that can just exile spells from the stack, this might be the only one that doesn't either give the card back O-Ring style (Ashiok's Erasure, Spell Queller) or do it by ending the turn. It's also one of two that counters all abilities (Kadena's Silencer), again without ending the turn.
Lich's Mirror tries to restart it, also a unique one. Especially unique is the interaction with Donating it to an opponent and killing them with poison (infinite unbreakable loop, draws the game), as the Professor pointed out.
Speaking of, I don't know if it's still unique, but Leeches removes poison counters.
