    Ah yes, you're right.

    Extremely expensive, one-sided wrath.

    Friends are trying to convince me that aura is going to be standardmazing in UG ramp. I have doubts.

    Terminus, now. That's quite the guy.

    Worse than that, actually.

    It would turn her into a one-sided Wrath, since the enchantment only affects YOUR creatures.

    EDIT: Curse you, Dr. Tran!

    I think a 6-mana aura is going to have problems no matter what it tries to do

    if you can get it to stick and last with a good board position, though, it could give you quite an advantage (but of course any removal, bounce, flicker, etc. can shut it down at a moment's notice)

    There seem to be a hell of a lot of mythics in this set. I come from a pre-mythic era, how rare are they?

  • drp527drp527 We sacrifice our own That more may rise in their placeRegistered User regular
    there's a 1 in 8 chance that the rare in your pack will be replaced by a mythic, and generally are 15 mythics per large set (first set in a block, and more recently the third as well in the case of Avacyn Restored and Rise of the Eldrazi) or 10 in a small set (second and third sets of a block, barring the aforementioned exceptions)

    For maximum schadenfreude: "B-b-but I don't even have any other spells in this deck! Four of those and the rest is permanents!"

    the top three cards are the remaining copies

    but actually I half want to try doing something with that and Selective Memory to clear out all non-permanents

    maybe some Elixir of Immortalities to save me when my deck vanishes and becomes my field

    Wouldn't the angel be okay? After all they are copies, I thought copies of a card with legendary didn't break the rule, just additional cards.

    205.4c Any permanent with the supertype “legendary” is subject to the state-based effect for legendary permanents, also called the "Legend rule" (see rule 704.5k).
    704.5k If two or more legendary permanents with the same name are on the battlefield, all are put into their owners’ graveyards. This is called the “legend rule.” If only one of those permanents is legendary, this rule doesn’t apply.

    So to clarify, the copy effect copies the entire card, including supertype.

    Studying for the L1 test is like studying for the CPA exam, I swear to god.

    copying takes on every characteristic of the card, I think, up to and including mana costs (for those few effects that care) and other copy effects (if you Clone a Clone that's already copying something, they both wind up copying the same thing)

    creating a second copy of your opponent's legendary permanent just to destroy it isn't actually all that rare a tactic

    I've passed RA and we need more level 1s in my area, so I'm going to step up to the plate sometime before October (so I don't have an entirely new mess of interactions to learn). So far I have managed to pass 1 of 4 practice tests.

    The amount of hard control/good counters we have available is so damn low. I've been trying to get UB or Esper control off the ground for months, with very limited success. Aggro is just so fucking consistent in this format. A Karn/exile deck in Esper might be doable, but I still can't see Mana Leak carrying it to victory.

    alternatively if someone has a die with sides equal to (or close to) the number of permanents you could roll for it

    or random number generator it since people always have phones and apps on hand, just make sure you agree on which permanent is which number
