Yea, the Salvager goes straight in.
I probably keep Mnemonic Wall in just to have an extra Brainspoil target, and at the same time, it can sop up a hit or two.

Jun 17, 2018Coincidentally, I got hit by a Torment of Hailfire for x=18 yesterday.Posted in: Commander Rules Discussion Forum
I won the turn after. And this was in a 75% meta, so...
Honestly, it's a good card. But between Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless, it's rather pitiful. It's also a hilariously dead card against token decks. And if you can build up, say, 15 mana to fire off one for a relatively high amount, this will also mean your opponents probably have a lot of mana/cards as well.
Jun 17, 2018Yea, if someone plays like that, I'm gonna make it my game's mission to keep punting them out of the game as soon as I possibly can. If you just want to mess up other players' games, then I'm going to mess up yours until you either leave the group or change your ways.Posted in: Commander (EDH)

Italian Hellfires go for about 10-15 euros, so...
Anyway, fun card but yeah, screw the RL.

I can tell you that the day the RC starts banning cards solely due to the secondary market is the day I quit playing where I have to follow the ban list.
If anything, the more the RL cards spike from buyouts, the more it strengthens my stance that they should do away with PBtE altogether and look at the cards individually. (Obligatory #FreeLibrary)
Cause Library wouldn't quadruple in price AT ALL if it became EDH legal....eeeeeesh

Creature - Elf Advisor
When ~ ETB, support 2.
Whenever you put one or more counters on a creature you don't control, draw a card.
Funny enough, while it is clearly meant to be putting it's counters on your teammate's creatures, it probably works best in -1/-1 counter decks like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons...

May 8, 2018LouCypher posted a message on Comannder Anthology II deck lists Atraxa Mimeoplasm Daretti and KalemneI don't get the hate on Kalemne and, to a lesser extent, Daretti. Both decks are chock-full of high value cards, and more importantly, both of these are far from weak straight out of the box compared to their counterparts. Kalemne was the second strongest deck of it's cycle (Meren's more synergistic approach made it better) due to simply coming online fast and hitting rather hard. Daretti was arguably the most powerful out-of-the-box deck of it's year, fighting with Freyalise for that title.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
And while Kalemne is not a great commander beyond that, it's still a serviceable voltron/aggro commander, and Daretti is a unique angle of attack for red. Those two are by a stretch the best decks in here. It's just that the sheer pricetag and power of Atraxa kind of eclipses that. But the rest of the Atraxa deck is kind of lackluster, to say the least.

I guess no one plays Wildfire, Death Cloud, or other such board wipes in your area. Nothing is guaranteed to survive in the way of mana sources.
Oh they do get played. Just not as often as Austere Command, Bane of Progress, Reclamation Sage, Vandalblast, etc etc.

Sadly that doesn't work as well as you'd want. Once you get your third Brother, you'll have to sac one of your truly legendary ones. So the first turn you're getting no benefit out of it.
Unless I'm mistaking but
Did you forget what the helmet does
"The token isn't legendary if equipped creature is legendary"
Not to mention the tokens never leave
How can the legends rule apply if the token isn't legendary I don't recall the legends rule doesn't apply thing doesn't remove legend type from the creature.
Because Brothers Yamazaki specifically states that as long as there are "TWO permanents named BROTHERS YAMAZAKI, the legend rule doesn't apply."
Now, this means that you can have two Legendary Brothers Yamazaki. However, by creating a third Brothers Yamazaki, that one may not be legendary, the first two still are, thus you have two legendary Brothers Yamazaki, but you're only allowed to do so if there are exactly two of them. Now you have a third (The copy, after all, still retains the name) so you have to sacrifice one of the legendary ones. Any subsequent copies will have no further problems though.
