Depends on what do you want to play and how. Hanna is god tier, but obviously very different from the other two. Glissa has more potential for recursion and can chain insanely well, but you have to rely on different cards for enchantment recursion.
Damia is just a second Necropotence and the decks are usually way different from Hanna and Glissa decks.

Need some help here.

My opponent casts Time Warp.

I cast Reverberate and copy it.

I want to know exactly what happens here, heres some examples of what i think that happens.

A: My opponent gets an extra turn after his current turn, then i get my extra turn and then get my normal turn. so we both take consecutive turns.

B: My extra turn resolves first and comes after this turn, then his extra turn resolves and comes after my extra turn. So basically nothing happens, no one takes consecutive turns at all.

>> No.54108421

>>54108367
This. Hapatra is the most fun you can have in GB. She flies under the radar until you have a dozen deathtouch snakes, and after that it's super hard for people to hit you on the ground. Also, even if her combo potential is lower than Meren or Gitgud, she can still pull out surprise wins with Persist combos or Bloatfly Infestation

Hey, I asked this a few threads ago but it was near the end of its life so I'll ask again here. I want to make an Abzan control deck and I'm not sure who I should make the commander. I'm currently considering Ravos/Tymna and Ikra or Anafenza.

>> No.54108465

Well, Hanna and Glissa are entirely different colours, so it obviouly affects a lot. Still, Hanna isn't particularly interesting, although I've been extremely satisfied with her. Glissa was my first deck, but it was awful, although she's more interesting. I prefer the versatility and the good value Hanna gives, not to mention the good shit that comes with the colours. I'm a absolute sucker for Standstill.
Mostly, I love enchantments, more than artifacts, so I obviously prefer recursion that can get both. Not to mention, that BG has way worse synergy with both permanent types, aside from the couple cards that allow you to draw cards when you cast enchantments.

Hypothetically, lets say your group wanted to have a game of commander without the traditional "commander tax" mechanic, but was willing to make a create a new rule in it's place. Which of these alternative rules would you most enjoy?

>Your commander has an additional cost of 5 life for each time it's been cast before this game.
>Your commander has an additional cost of discarding two cards for each time it's been cast before this game.
>Your commander has an additional cost of exiling the top 10 cards of your deck for each time it's been cast before this game.

First one rewards Lifegain decks

Last one is the "fairest" but I personally wouldn't play it.

>>54108559
The only one I can see being remotely usable of those three is the exile and even that's a stretch.

The problem with the other 2 is you can build decks to completely exploit them. Life loss means nothing to a commander like Oloro. I WANT everyone to discard cards if I'm playing Nath of the Gilt Leaf or Neheb.

The extra turn that comes first is given to a player that's spell or ability that gives them was the most recent to resolve, so if you copy their spell, your resolves first and their afterwards, so they get the turn first, then you.

To be fair, I want my opponents to have to spend extra mana to recast their commanders, too. In that specific example, I think the discard would come across as a stax-esque effect if you're playing Nath or Neheb.
If any commander would be broken with the discard rule, it would something like Zegana.

Brewing up a W/B hatebear + ETB abuse deck that I want to feel stax-ish.

I've been a Black autist for a while, so I know my Black ETB's. I'm struggling to find good White ones. Besides the obvious recursion creature package (Sun Titan, Reveillark, Karmic Guide, et al), I've got Seht's Tiger, Wall of Omens, Ranger of Eos, Thalia's Lancers, Knight of the White Orchid and Wingmate Roc.

Hey fa/tg/uys, I'm an almost completely new player who realized after playing shittons of Shadowverse that MTG exsisted. I love playing all sorts of other Traditional Games and played MTG as a child many years ago.

Anyway, I downloaded the Magic duels app thing ande have fiddled around a bit, I think I like blue and white the most right now as far as colors are concerned. The app has nothing like commander but I've read that it's the cheapest.

How do I get into commander? Whats a good cheap way to start playing casually?

One theory is that they're only doing four tribes because they'll all be 5c, which would make Slivers very likely. Other options include Elementals, Spirits, and Humans. Some people are even thinking a five color Eternal Pilgrim, the Eldrazi worshipping cult, to allow for playing cards like World Breaker or Eldrazi Dispacer in a tribal Eldrazi deck.

Buy a Commander precon of an archetype that appeals to you. They're the best mass-market preconstructed product Wizards offers, barring a couple stinkers out of the box. We're in a weird place right now as Commander 2016 supplies are a bit more iffy than usual and we're not yet at C17 release (theme this year is tribal, and we only know one of the four tribes is Dragons thanks to leaks), but C13, 14 and 15 decks can be obtained with relative ease and there's a Commander Anthology out right now with four decks taken from the first four years of Commander decks that's a solid pickup too if you like variety and have the cash for that/don't mind selling off the decks you don't like once you have them.

The only bad thing is Commander hasn't done allied color pairings yet, so there's no WB deck to just point you towards. Evasive Maneuvers isn't a bad choice to dick around with nasty bird wizard, it's probably closest to the kind of controlling gameplay you're probably fond of playing in Duels.

Oh, and don't sink any actual money into Duels, it's getting abandoned.

I think dragons will be the only 5c, the rest will be 2 color that take advantage of of both "class" and "race" tribal (like merfolk wizards)

That's my best guess, though I am damn sure they won't make more than one 5c deck.

>> No.54114002

>>54113705
We're getting a Merfolk vs. Goblins duel deck this fall as well, so I'd be very surprised if either of those tribes is in C17. Elves are also unlikely since there's already an Elf tribal Commander precon, and it just got a reprint to boot.

If they're all 5-colour, I would guess Elementals as one. Probably not Spirits unless O-Kagachi is in both, which I don't think they've ever done so unlikely. Zombies, maybe? We now have white zombies on Amonkhet, blue zombies on Innistrad, green zombies on Ravnica, and red zombies on Grixis and Theros.
We could also get at least one Class based tribal rather than Race, so something like Wizards or Knights or Soldiers.

I would also like a new Commander land, like a fetchland that fetches a Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain or Forest card if there's a card in your command zone. Or a filterland that gives you two colors in your commander's color identity for 1.
And basic fucking reprints they keep avoiding like Capsize, Forbid, Diabolic Edict, Mystic Remora, Skyshroud Claim, Wild Growth, Rhystic Study and Tainted Pact. I'm tired of playing with cards so old and worn they feel like they're made of toilet paper and you can't quite find 20 year old 50c commons Near Mint anymore. Even SCG's NM feels like greasy shit with such old cards.

But to tell the truth I expect the other three tribes to be Eldrazi, Humans and Zombies so they can fill the decks with post M15 shit that doesn't need a reprint instead.

Right yeah, it's also not against the rules to take 1 hour per turn in a casual edh game, because the rules aren't that extensive

Does that make it not a shitty thing to do? Clearly there is a social contract involved in playing casual edh, I think the assumption that everybody is trying to win and there being no teams (it's not 2hg). Basically if this prossh player knew about the secret pact to defeat her, she would be inclined to team up as well. You're basically taking advantage of her good faith in your sportsmanship by doing this.

Now obviously if she wins every game because her deck is too net deck, competitive, etc, that's a breach of the social contract too, so sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Sol Ring, signets, Chromatic Lanter for 3+ colored decks, green ramp like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach if you have green, efficent removal in your colors like PoE or Swords, wraths in your colors like WoG or Toxic Deluge, repeatable card draw in your colors like Phyrexian Arena.
As far as deckbuilding in commander it's a rule of thumb to include 35-38 lands, 8-12 ramp spells or mana producing non-land permanents 6-8 card draw cards possibly repeatable, 6-8 removal/counterspells possibly repeatable 3-4 wraths and the rest can be cards that make your main strategy or that support it.

Well, I'm pretty similar to your greentext. The difference is I usually still like my decks, I just feel compelled to jump to new shiny.

At least for me, Versatile decks -- ones that are like 60/40 Goodstuff/synergy -- last a good deal longer. Playing combo gets old pretty quickly because if you do it well it's just a matter of finding one of the routes to Your Win -- all the other puttering about doesn't matter, just hit that critical mass of tutors and go. Now, decks can have a combo in them without hitting that, but dedicated combo, that actually tries to win in a consistent manner? The novelty of comboing off soon wears thin. Similarly, I take little joy in going full bore on other strategies, like tribal, where the cards are almost fully interchangable since, once again, the deck self pilots and there's only so many times you can watch it do its thing before it gets old.

So the trick is to have a deck that can surprise you. Where it will play one way if you get certain cards, or another way if you get another set of cards. Let them overlap, so the purpose of cards in your deck is a nice little venn diagram with 3-6 circles all variously overlapping (and, ideally, your commander in the center of it). This way, when you go to the table, you don't exactly know what to expect out of your own deck because it is weird, complex, and random.

High impact, high variance, high interactivity "main" strategies are also best, because they won't play out the same way every time even when you get the 'right' cards for them. My Stax decks routinely get more plays-per-deck than most others because establishing with stax is a crazy rush that forces you to account for every permanent at the board at all times and has about a zillion decision points. I will still pull out red chaos cards like Grip of Chaos, Scrambleverse and Thieves' Auction (Protip: Confusion in the Ranks) long after I'm done with combo because they'll usually create unique game states.

obviously the other one has the PW logo and the other one is supposed to be reminiscient of black lotus. both boxes hold about 1150 double sleeved cards so they're pretty roomy. the only thing that's left is finishing the interior and waiting 3 weeks to smooth out the outer polyurethaned surfaces (they're not quite smooth right now)

Thoughts on Spring // Mind and Beneath the Sands as ramp in your 3cmc slots? Ignoring rocks here.

I prefer to keep my mana ramping at 2cmc or below, but in one of my green decks I have a few slots for 3cmc ramp. I currently use Cultivate (nets 2 cards), Harrow (instant speed is great, sac effect can be useful), and Recross the Paths (hits nonbasics, may return to hand for reuse).

I'm swapping out Recross for Spring // Mind to test it out. I like that Beneath can be cycled if you don't need the ramp late-game, which is sometimes a problem for me. The problem is that you only get one or the other, while Spring you can cast both given the time and mana.

The only time I've seen her used to devastating effect was by a skinny, horribly smelly guy at an old LGS who also got Ob Nixilis out thanks to a fucking Tempting Wurm from the grouphug player. He was murdered hard, but he took at least one player with him.

No, just play Sidisi. Most of the time when you play Maralen, someone else will either tutor up a combo piece and win on the spot, or tutor up removal and kill Maralen to keep someone else from doing that.

Does Urabrask fit this too?

I don't know if he is dead or not but is the one praetor that sides with humanity instead of Phyrexia (Atraxa even excludes red). Sounds similar to Hazoret.

Titania to Gritog is probably a better transition. I'm saying this as someone that converted Baru into Angry Omnath. Titania to Angry Omnath is easily doable, I have her in mine and she does a lot of work. So I guess the answer is yes, but Gritog wants to do more of the same thing as her.

Is this guy good in Boros? Going for a stax/hatebears build and I'm looking for solid, low cost creatures.

You forgot the best gritty survivor waifu. Being a boy never stopped anyone from being the best girl.

The Adventurer's Guildhouse Cycle.

I love messing with people on Banding, because I'm just a little evil. I do explain all the rules to players, since they don't normally know them, because I'm not that evil.

pretty decent. Especially in boros since hatebears without green is pretty bad, so you gotta take what you can get.
