    Quote from ISBPathfinder »
    Is there really much room for Food Chain as a fair non infinite combo?
    I have personally only seen Food Chain in Prossh and Maelstrom Wanderer (and I know Tazri runs it, but I haven't ever played against Food Chain Tazri).

    Food Chain Prossh gives you infinite tokens and mana to spend on creatures. Food Chain Maelstrom Wanderer is not infinite, just vomits a bunch of cards onto the table; but you can get that with things like Genesis Wave and Primal Surge anyway.

    Ugin's Conjurant is a spirit. With a colorless identity. That can be cast as a CMC 0 spell.

    Thing is, the dude i just pointed out can't really respond either way without making him look like he has/doesn't have it, right?
    While the hand is hidden information, you are permitted to reveal hidden information you have access to. If they wanted to prove you a liar and have nobody at the table trust you again, all it would take is revealing their own hand.

    I'm quite surprised that Ashiok is sparking such a debate. After all, search deniers have been here for ages already, some of which even allowed to be cast from the comand zone (even though, I have to admit, at a higher cost).
    What search-preventing card is a legendary creature?

    Leonin Arbiter and Aven Mindcensor are the only ones I'm aware of that are even creautres at all.

    Narset’s Reversal just seems awesome. Fork effects are always good, and this comes with the benefit of Remand.
    Narset's Reversal in Melek, Izzet Paragon. /rubs hands together maliciously

    You monster.
    To be fair, if you're casting Reversal off the top with Melek, you want to target two different spells, since the first Reversal to resolve bounces the spell it targeted and if the second Reversal was also targeting it, it has nothing to copy. So you can't just use Scroll Rack to put Lightning Bolt and Narset's Reversal on top, then pay RRUU to deal 12 damage. If you cast Reversal from hand on a spell you cast off the top, it's kinda like Twincasting the spell and giving the original buyback.

    nah, telepathy is way better. Your opponents knowing what each other have is almost always to your benefit since they'll answer each other's threats as optimally as possible, but won't know yours, they'll attack the guy holding the board wipe to force the issue, etc. Also you get to know everything at once with real-time updates.
    In my experience, this only happens when one opponent has a game-ending threat or something that dramatically hoses another opponent. Usually, people end up gunning for the person who's hiding information from the table.

    People tend to be more chill about Revelation.

    Is there a typo in, "Whenever an opponent shuffles their library, they shuffle their library or pay 3 life."?
    No. Mechanically, the trigger goes on the stack when they finish whatever effect caused the shuffle, and then that trigger causes them to shuffle again or pay 3. I was interpreting what you originally wrote to be meant as hate against cards like Vampiric Tutor. So, they would find a card, shuffle their deck, put that card on top of their deck, lose 2 life, and then either shuffle again (losing the card they tutored for) or pay 3 life (increasing the cost of the tutor). If the shuffle was just Rampant Growth or similar, then the second shuffle wouldn't be doing anything without deck manipulation in response to the trigger, so the physical actions could be just one set of shuffles (even if it counts as two for the likes of Cosi's Trickster or similar).

    Quote from Incanur »
    Is there some particular reason you need specifically unbounded mana?
    As I said in my original post, I was looking to see if there was a alternative to Food Chain combo that only uses guild-colored cards, so that the combo pieces can be picked up by Niv's ETB.

    I'm wondering if the names for the red and green Finales were swapped at some point...
    The Finale names are traded around between colors from the Hour names.

    Hour of Revelation -> Finale of Revelation
    Hour of Eternity -> Finale of Eternity
    Hour of Glory -> Finale of Glory
    Hour of Devastation -> Finale of Devastation
    Hour of Promise -> Finale of Promise

    The Esper-colored ones cycled their names around in a circle, and the Gruul-colored ones swapped.

    I feel if you flip Part the Waterveil off Narset, Parter of Veils, you deserve to win on the spot.

    Having to tap limits your ability to take advantage of your sac outlet. Just use a Hidden Stockpile, Altar of Dementia, Ashnod's Altar...even Vampiric Rites. Key is, you want a sac outlet that is repeatable on demand. That's what makes a good sac outlet.
    Yeah, I'd view this more as a source of card draw in a proliferate deck than as a proper sac outlet.

    Creature tokens you control have Haste.
    If an effect would create one or more tokens under your control, it creates three times as many of those tokens instead.
    At the beginning of each end step, exile all creature tokens you control.
    No matter the situation, there is always an amount of force one can bring to bear for which there is no adequate defense

    Play it as the secret commander of a Jeskai deck, along with Teferi's Veil. Since tokens can come back from phasing now. Smile

    Whenever a player shuffles their library, draw a card and gain 2 life.
    If an opponent would draw a card, instead they shuffle their library then draw a card unless they pay 3 life.
    The last ability is clearly meant to screw with topdeck tutors, but triggers way too often and would eat up a lot of play time. I would say instead, "Whenever an opponent shuffles their library, they shuffle their library or pay 3 life."

    Physically, they just finish their normal shuffle if they Rampant Growth'd or something. If they were resolving a topdeck tutor, they simply pay an extra 3 life for the effect. It also gives the opponent an out by combining their topdeck tutor with instant speed card draw (in response to the shuffle trigger), making the card more interactive.

    Because the idea was to find a solution that uses only 2-color cards, and Turnabout is mono-color.
    I mean are you really that dedicated to having every card be two color?
    I'd like to try, yes.

    As I said in many forums, it’s like wizards watched Avengers: Infinity Wars and trailers for Endgames and said “Let’s make a story that involves the Gatewatch as the Avengers and involve time travel....just like Endgames is going to do and bring people back!”

    Poor non-original predictable storytelling!
    To be fair, death has always been a revolving door in comics. For example, in the Spider-Man/Deadpool series, Patient Zero is brought back from the dead by making a deal with Mephisto. Patient Zero hires Deadpool to kill Peter Parker. When Deadpool discovers he's been duped, he calls in a favor with his ex-girlfriend (Lady Death) to bring Peter back to life.

    Then Patient Zero creates Itsy Bitsy with the powers of both Spider-Man and Deadpool, who subsequently decides to be a violent hero like Deadpool and slices Patient Zero into cubes.

    The EDH/Commander forum has a subforum for decks. (Actually several, depending on whether your deck is cEDH, normal EDH, or some EDH variant.)
