It's hard to go wrong with Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead. Only a couple reanimation cards are cheaper in cmc and there's a few ways to recur it in WBx, including Sun Titan and Ironclad Slayer, who I'd say is underrated. If you can reliably feed your GY and don't rely heavily on non-aura enchantments (I'd only ever run Auramancer in dedicated enchantress), he's great at retrieving your reanimation auras or greaves.

>> No.56592369

>What's your favorite way to reanimate fatties, and what are some your favorite targets?

Feldon, and Tyrant of Discord. With something like Illusionist Bracers and Magewright Stone it's practically a Board Wipe. Then with Sundial of the Infinite you've got a bunch of 7/7s. It's pretty great.

you could run stitch together over animate dead. it's sort of underrated. your deck has a lot of graveyard stuff and it has some marginal advantages. you could definitely run regrowth over treasured find. it's strictly better. eternal witness is a must. feast of the fallen is kind of lame unless you can trigger it on opponents turns. unspeakable symbol is not a great rate.

I took a peak, and here are some arbitrary opinions I have about stuff.

Things in your deck
>sword of light and shadow
For what purpose?
>Abrupt Decay
You'll rarely use this. It's much better in other formats unless it's there for something specific.
>Winding Constrictor
Good in some match ups, will 100% fuck you against certain decks.
>Essence Harvest
Now that's some fucking spice right there.
>Sudden Death
Not a fan. It's good in the sense it's instant-speed removal, bad in the sense that it's not very strong. I like Sudden Spoiling, and Dismember but it depends on why you're running it.
>very few rocks, very little ramp
Sets my willies ablaze, but that's up to you.

>Crystaline Crawler

Shadow of the Grave is also a good inclusion if you run lots of wheels; wheel into wheel into flashback Shadow to get so many cards into your hand that you have no idea what to do with them is super fun.

I have 8 rocks that make coloured mana at the moment, on top of Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, and Thran Dynamo. I think that will work, and if I like the deck, I'll grab my goodstuff out of Ghave.

I just have an assortment of random lands lying around and I'm going to slap them together to see if the deck concept is worth expanding on.

It's just not going to happen. Even if you get vehicle density, you're never getting Dwarf density, and RW will never have support cards like Arcane Adaption to force it. You're also never going to get vehicles as good as the ones already printed thanks to Kaladesh/AER standard environments.

If you really want to force it, build up strong mana, probably through rocks because Boros is shit at what good EDH decks do, run as much artifact subtheming as you can, play the incredibly small number of good dwarves, and then focus down efficient ways to crew those vehicles.

Also run a couple of land destruction cards because it's the only way you're going to win in RW. No one is going to see that shit coming out of fucking Depala.

Pic not really related, but on theme for my answers.

I'm thinking about building up an Anafenza, the Foremost deck, but I'm really not sure how to Abzan properly. Here's what I've got out of it so far:
>Bolster, Outlast, Renown, Scavenge keywords
>White weenie hate, cards like Ghostly Prison and Authority of the Consuls too
>Delicious Orzhovian Removal cards feat. Golgari staples
>A Rest In Peace, if I can ever find my singular copy

Here's the thing, I have no real idea of how I'm going to win games. Duneblast + Reyhan seemed dece, but pretty christmasland. Also, I'm wondering if maybe a Golgari-focused reanimator and self-mill strat might work better than my current heavy Selesnya bend.

Basically, I'm asking for any tips I can get on an Anafenza deck. Must-have cards (I'm not buying a doubling season), good strategies to work with, that kind of thing.

I know there's better in Abzan colors. There's also worse. Anafenza is well within my comfort zone in terms of power.

Ever get hung up on naming your deck? I keep wanting to use the name "Muse", not like the band.

Like I can wrap my head around Meren singing the dead back to life, or Kaalia calling on the angels/demons/dragons.

I do think the buy in to most formats in Magic is the biggest roadblock next to the community.

A lot of people playing don't realise that they could have a decade of experience on someone and concepts that are as simple as breathing for some people are brand new to others.
I get the issue with getting something lower power and then getting destroyed by something competitive. My friends who got me into Magic had 2 modern decks, a Lantern Control and pretty run of the mill Jund deck and after reading the standard rules we played some BO3 whilst swapping decks and the person who wasn't playing giving me a hand. I think the aspect that I didn't play against something that completely won 90% of the time was actually a lot of fun and a big reason why I'm still playing today.

Yes. You have a separate "contraption" deck
In limited you can have any drafted contraptions in that deck. Constructed is a minimum of 15, but its a singleton deck, you cant run more then 1 of a specific contraption.

Whenever you play a spell that "assembles" a contraption, you take the top card from your contraption deck, and assign it to one of the sprockets on pic related. Beginning of upkeep you move a crank counter to one of the sprockets. It starts at 3, and goes to 1, then to 2, then 3, repeat. Then crank (activate) any # of contraptions that you have sprocket being cranked. So if the counter is moved on to sprocket 2, activate any # of contraptions assigned to sprocket 2.

But that would just trigger the LTB effect and exile the creature, wouldn't it?

It was just a situation I was wondering about. I had not planned on using the whip for that.

>> No.56600489

This one's a simple gatherer ruling.
>If a creature returned to the battlefield with Whip of Erebos would leave the battlefield for any reason, it’s exiled instead. However, if that creature is already being exiled, then the replacement effect won’t apply. If the spell or ability that exiles it later returns it to the battlefield (as Chained to the Rocks might, for example), the creature card will return to the battlefield as a new object with no relation to its previous existence. The effects from Whip of Erebos will no longer apply to it.

how reasonable is tossing lab man into a sidisi deck just on the off chance you can mill yourself to death?

I need your help /edhg/

I'm building outside of my comfort zone to try something new.

It landed on a combination of a colourless deck and voltron. So I'm thinking Karn, with some way of cheating out big artifacts and animating them with Karn.

I need ways to cheat out artifacts in colourless. Any ideas?

Not very reasonable. Milling yourself happens way to rarely. And then most of the times when you're about to draw from the empty library and win, someone just shoots your laboratory maniac and you lose instead.

This card looks really good, why is it never played?

>> No.56601701

Not too many artifacts where spending 6 mana to cheat them in is better than just casting them.

>> No.56601721

You're right, but it's still a nice drop for the early game.

gonna need some combobos bro

salvaging station and some eggs is needed for ramping and drawing colorless. you can even loop station and some eggs with karn.

I don't want to make another combo deck, but it is tempting.

they are all pretty good cards to have in a colorless deck. you gonna need all the tech you can in colorless. wastes and artifacts that search for basics is a good package to have in case of nonbasic hate.

>> No.56602896

I have a 89iq question about the stack. Often enough someone casts a spell and in response someone else casts something like Dark Ritual to get enough mana to cast another spell in response. Or they sacrifice an artifact to draw cards to get a chance to cast something in response. But wouldn't they have to wait until the entire stack resolves to get the mana from the Dark Ritual or the cards from the sacrificed artifact? Why do these effects resolve before anything else?

The stack doesn't have to resolve all at once or uninterrupted. Players get priority to do things between spells resolving. The next spell in the stack only resolves when all players pass priority without doing anything.

Why did Flusterstorm get to be so expensive? Legacy/Vintage?

Yes. It'll be like that as long as storm exists as a viable deck.

That makes sense. Funny how you can play the game for years perfectly without understanding the rules completely. Thanks.

>> No.56603143

An opponent can cast Dark Ritual in reaponse to some other action once they have priority. Players in turn can reapond to said opponent's Dark Ritual being put on the stack. Certain Special Actions do not use the stack and cannot be reaponded to. These include (but not limitited to, I'm sure I'll have forgotten something) Mana Abilities, turning a facedown card Face Up, ending a licid's aura effect, playing a land for turn. By and large 'Mana Ability' refers simply to tapping an artifact/creature/land for Mana. There are some exotic mana abilities out there though and the Game Rules for those instances explicitly state if something is a mana ability (ie:Selvana's Parley ability)
Phyrexian Tower, Phyrexian Altar, KrarkClan Ironworks, and Ashnod's Altar are some examples of unique mana abilities in that the COST for activating them includes sacrificing a permanent. When a player activates these (sacs a creature/artifact) they similarly don't use the stack. Players can take advantage of this by saccing permanents that have On Death triggers.While the death triggers will still go on the stack, it is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to stop them from placing said triggers on the stack once they have a sac outlet on the board that functions by making mana, hence their poplularity in infinite combos.

Bought 60 copies of Abundant Maw and 2 copies of Lashweed Lurker so I could instakill the whole table with Spawnsire of Ulamog's ability. Figured nothing can deal with 60 big creatures and 180 life worth of draining cast triggers. The lurkers were there to stop shit like Phyrexian Unlife from getting me

Got shut down by Summary Dismissal last night. I can't believe I missed that card given it came from the same damn set

Getting BTFO by stifle counters is one of my favorite things in MTG.

I applaud your effort in acquiring 60 eldrazis. My group would probably be fine with "The ability resolves? OK, I go proxy up 1 trillion Emrakuls for the extra turns and then kill you all" or whatever. We don't normally encourage proxies but that ability is so win-more we probably wouldn't argue over it.

I thought the effect of pulling out an entire extra deck box full of nothing but fodder for a single card was worth the ~$12 I spent

Pretty sure you can only select cards from your 'wishboard' which is limited to 10 cards. But a wishboard being used at all is up to your group, so if everyone played your massive wishboard, it's not my place to call 'em on bad judgement

In tournament play, cards you own outside the game means your sideboard of 15 cards. In casual play it means any card you physically own, or your playgroup's agreed upon definition.

>> No.56603559


The actual rule is "Abilities which refer to other cards owned outside the game (Wishes, Spawnsire, Research, Ring of Ma'ruf) do not function in Commander without prior agreement on their scope from the playgroup."

I play with friends most of the time, and even in the few LGS games where I've had Spawnsire on the board, no one has had an issue with it. Probably because if you have 31 mana open then you can win in a ton of other less convoluted ways

>> No.56603624

I've actually had games where I do my stuff and as everything resolves I go around the table and ask for responses before the next thing on the stack happens
