So I was thinking today.

How did cards like Lion's Eye Diamond and Mox Diamond rise so high but than fall back so hard?

Is it because there's a lot more stock not accounted for by "investors" and when the card shoots up people start opening old boxes looking for them thus flooding the market with more supply?

Chrome Mox has a heavy drawback and if it was legal in modern people definitely wouldn't just slap it into every deck but what chrome Mox does is it enables Prison decks to be oppressive with t1 chalice of the void, t1-2 blood moon, t1-2 trinisphere, etc

I countered animar with reb so he scooped because he got color locked and shuyun played mana flare so he scooped to deny me mana.

well then the same thing could be true of prime time? instead of getting coffers and urborg you get springjack pasture and kher keep?

there are lots of cards that can tutor lands. weathered wayfarer is a 1 drop that gets you whatever you want. you can have urborg turn 2 and coffers turn 3. nobody complains.

urborg + coffers gives you lots of mana but it doesn't actually win you the game. protean hulk can easily give you creatures that win you the game on the spot. it's just a weird contradiction to me. i don't see how prime time is banned when hulk isn't. hulk is more abusable to me.

To be fair depending on the colour deck you're playing and the lands you have out vs the number of basics in your deck it's not worth digging through your deck to wait and see if you get a basic before you die.
I'd probably keep playing at that point but the guy playing Bloodmoon probably has some land destro and it'll be incredibly engaging to take 6 turns of damage but down a basic and it get removed.

>> No.56426610

He has to keep everyone color screwed and protect his blood moon at the same time. That's not happening. Someone will blow up the blood moon eventually. Or maybe the blood moon guy will grind out a win. Sometimes that just happens. If you let these things happen, blood moon guy won't post on /tg/ about how his totally awesome archangel avacyn deck blew out two top tier commanders that probably weren't even built well.

Any deck playing red can slam a turn 3 blood moon and color screw casuals into scooping up their cards. That doesn't take skill or good deckbuilding. That takes jamming blood moon and three basic mountains into your deck at minimum.

Your commander is hexproof, in the best enchantress colors and can slot Sigarda 1.0 in the 99. There's really no way you can go wrong.

Oh i think im done helping due to tiredness thats twice ive only read part of it. I dont think playing around with landfall will make you a huge target. Since the creature isn't legendary and only a 1/1 it shouldnt be too terrible to deal with him. What commander did you have in mind?

What if I react to the 1dmg by bouncing the bird to my hand? I get the bird back, then the dmg doesnt happend because no target and then I get the mana anyway???

Aren't all mana abilities played as interrupts, therefore meaning that they'll always resolve and the player will gain their mana before anything else can be added to the stack?

When does a thing get removed from the stack? After it resolves, or after the whole stack is resolved?
In other words, you play a split second card, oponent waits for it to resolve, can he put another thing on the same stack afterwatds?

>> No.56428902

Anything in the stack is resolved one by one in a first in last out order.

To answer your question about the split card, yes you can. You can't respond to split second while it's on the stack but once it resolves, sure.

>> No.56428908

interrupts don't exist anymore, they changed it to that a long time ago and have since changed it again to be a lot simpler.
basically you can tap mana at any time you have priority or are paying a cost for a spell or ability.
activating mana abilities doesn't use the stack and therefore cannot be responded to. you also cannot respond to other methods of paying costs, such as discarding cards or sacrificing creatures.
after a spell with split second resolves it leaves the stack and split second will no longer apply so you can activate abilities.

>> No.56428924

If there was a thing that would have a trigger of tapping a land and its effect would counter target spell, would it enable you to counter split second thing on the stack?

Things are removed from the stack as they resolve.

Yeah I'm reading the rules now as a refresher.

405.6. Some things that happen during the game don’t use the stack.
405.6a Effects don’t go on the stack; they’re the result of spells and abilities resolving. Effects may create delayed triggered abilities, however, and these may go on the stack when they trigger (see rule 603.7).
405.6b Static abilities continuously generate effects and don’t go on the stack. (See rule 604, “Handling Static Abilities.”) This includes characteristic-defining abilities such as “[This object] is red” (see rule 604.3).
405.6c Mana abilities resolve immediately. If a mana ability both produces mana and has another effect, the mana is produced and the other effect happens immediately. If a player had priority before a mana ability was activated, that player gets priority after it resolves. (See rule 605, “Mana Abilities.”)
405.6d Special actions don’t use the stack; they happen immediately. See rule 115, “Special Actions.”
405.6e Turn-based actions don’t use the stack; they happen automatically when certain steps or phases begin. They’re dealt with before a player would receive priority (see rule 116.3a). Turn-based actions also happen automatically when each step and phase ends; no player receives priority afterward. See rule 703.
405.6f State-based actions don’t use the stack; they happen automatically when certain conditions are met. See rule 704. They are dealt with before a player would receive priority. See rule 116.5.
405.6g A player may concede the game at any time. That player leaves the game immediately. See rule 104.3a.
405.6h If a player leaves a multiplayer game, objects may leave the game, cease to exist, change control, or be exiled as a result. These actions happen immediately. See rule 800.4a.

>> No.56428932

I can highly recommend Marath, it's so fun to be able to run lots of ramp when you have a mana dump in the command zone and repeatable spot removal against puny commanders like Mizzix or Kaalia. It's also easy to avoid combos and build 75% if that's what your meta is like.

I've tried Gahiji and can't recommend it. It's very inconsistent, your commander is removal bait for combo/control players since it enables other aggro players and the political aspect of "don't attack me you silly boys" doesn't work when it's in your command zone, much like with Edric.
