Also when I get to use phyrexian metamorph to copy epic artifacts like mind's eye that is SO COOL (only play one metamorph in one of my 13 decks so it happens super rarely). I also did an awesome trick the other day, cloning a Karrthus to gain control of a field of dragons ready to kill me and then keeping my karrthus and letting his die, felt good! nothing memorable came of the move, think someone wrathed but damn I was proud! haha


Hop! Next time, let your own die as you'll lose everything when he recasts his general.


Good point, suppose I just wanted to deal with the threat in front of me and didn't think that hard haha, not used to facing down my own Karrthus deck haha, makes for good lessons though playing against new decks

If you've got someone in your playgroup who loves slowing things down with Sensei's Divining Top, I heartily recommend dropping Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver. It's one of those sadistic jokes that never gets old.

My favorite plays include:

Forking things in my Riku. Boundless Realms times two? Check. Urban Evolution times three? Check. I LOVE that card, btw.
But Bribery really takes the cake here. I once managed to cast it with Riku on the table, at ten lands. I targeted Zirilan of the Claw player, forked it with Riku, found Kiki-Jiki and Bogardan Hellkite and finally made a Riku-copy of the Hellkite, when it came into play. That alone pretty much cleared the board, especially the second copy of the dragon, made by Kiki, that proceeded to rampage on the now-open field.

Pseudo-buybacking Ghostly Flicker with Mnemonic Wall in Ephara, gaining a flicker and/or drake token from Talrand in the process (and both mean a card from Ephara). The best board position I achieved for this so far was as follows:
Ephara, God of the Polis
Talrand, Sky Summoner
Sunscape Familiar
Sapphire Medallion
Sun Titan
(in graveyard) Terramorphic Expanse
This meant that for one blue mana, I got a card (one per turn maximum), a drake token and a basic land from deck to play, tapped. Not to mention an immunity to targeted removal.

Comboing Lightning Crafter and Kiki-Jiki in my Nin. Some people just can't appreciate the nuances of the champion mechanic...
Opponent: Swords to Plowshares on your Kiki.
Me: In response, I tap Kiki, make a copy of Lightning Crafter, champion Kiki. Swords fizzles.
Opponent: That's mean! Ok, so I'll Vindicate the original Crafter, so you can't do that anymore!
Me: In response, I tap CopyCrafter to deal three damage to himself. He dies, Kiki comes back. Tap Kiki to make a copy of Crafter and champion him. Vindicate fizzles.
Opponent: RRRAAARRGGHH!!!

I recently had a game with my Sliver Queen planeswalker deck (vs. Vorosh, Child of Alara, and Radha) that tickled my fancy quite well indeed.

The early turns were uneventful except for the Radha player starting the beatdown and me casting a Cultivate. Turn 4 I make Vraska, somebody cracks a joke about how there are three players and she makes three assassins. Everyone chuckles and +1.

Turn 5 Tezzeret, the Seeker turns himself into Nevinyrral's Disk, and I'm facing down potentially lethal from Radha if he has pump spells, but he agrees not to attack me if I let Radha live through his turn, so I +1 Vraska. He is true to his word and takes a swing at the Vorosh player. I've missed my 6th land, however, so I'm in a bit of a pickle planning future turns.

Turn 6 my deck serves up a land, so I can blow up the world with Disk, ultimate Vraska for a team of assassins, play Elspeth Tirel to gain a little bit of life (and threaten to destroy all non-tokens to clear the way for my assassins on the next turn). Vorosh makes a blocker, Child of Alara casts his commander, which will kill my assassins if I ultimate Elspeth, and Radha comes back down. It looks like I can take out any one player of my choosing if I'm willing to lose an assassin in the process.

Turn 7 is a big rip. It gives me the Sol Ring off the top that lets me jump up to 7 mana for Karn Liberated, removing Child of Alara without triggering it. I get to go Oprah and give Vorosh an assassin, and Child an assassin, and Radha an assassin! Everybody gets assassins!

Had a very interesting board stall this Sunday.

Was playing with Kamahl Voltron against my buddy using my Dosan Ramp deck and another guy playing a modified Derevi Precon. We eventually got into a very interesting board state where I had a suited up Kamahl with Curse of Bloodletting on Derevi, Derevi had his commander out and a way to throw out chump-blocking tokens but was only at 2 life, and Dosan had a fair number of creatures but was at 20 Lethal Commander Damage from Derevi. So...
1. Dosan could attack everything into me to kill me, but would then be killed by LCD from Derevi, as he had no flying-hate left on the field. If he tried to attack Derevi, he would just get chumped.
2. Derevi could attack into Dosan and kill him immediately, but then I could tap Kamahl to finish him off after he knocked out Dosan. Trying to tap down or remove Kamahl obviously wouldn't work, and he had Hexproof at that point anyway.
3. Kamahl could tap down to finish off Derevi without ever even needing to enter combat, but considering that was the only creature I had, I would then be defenseless against Dosan's horde of green dudes.
We went for about seven turns seeing who would blink first, trying to find ways out of that and relentlessly attempting to play politics to get each other to turn to the the other's throat, but to no avail. Eventually Dosan managed to take the win by drawing into enough dudes to overrun both me and Derevi (gatdam Centaur Glade with Mana Doublers), while all we managed to draw were lands.

My friend's moment of glory:

In turn order: Zur vs. Ephara (me) vs. Uril

By the end of the third turn cycle, the game state was as follows:
Z: three lands, Sol Ring, Phyrexian Arena, Zur
E: three lands, Talisman of Progress, Raven Familiar (no Ephara, because the last land entered the battlefield tapped)
U: three lands, Kor Spiritdancer, Argothian Enchantress, Dauntless Escort, Mark of Fury in hand

On his fourth turn, Zur got to attack. He searched for Mana Breach, then cast Copy Enchantment from his hand. At that point, we, his opponents, basically put our hands together and came with an answer, 2HG-style. I played False Prophet and Uril player attacked into it, killing Zur before blowing both Mana Breaches with a Return to Dust. it cost us both bouncing two lands, but we cleared the board.
Next turn, Zur came back *SHOCK*. I played Ephara and Uril did something irrelevant.
On the dawn of the sixth turn, Zur got to attack again, finding Words of Wind this time, followed by Trinket Mage from hand, who in turn brought him Sensei's Divining Top. He cast the Top, activated the Winds, used the Top to bounce, returning it to his hand before it could put itself on top of his library. Then he did it again. I drew, no answer. Uril drew, no answer. Doublescoop.

Yup, that was a bad zur player and he still won. No suprise. i ran zur years before he was the most played commander, and you can build him horrily and still be OP. i love Zur, but I myself said he should have been banned from tje get go. Contamination Bitterblossom combo anyone? That not working, then lets switch to Voltron. Thgat not working? Lets swithch to control...

Those are all player issues. Zur can be built as a potent, but fun, control general who searches up answers and card advantage engines. Not having Zur be a dick is easily dealt with in deck construction. He never accidentally ruins games, which is what it takes for cards to get banned if they are short of the Griselbrand level of brokenness.

Every card, from Sylvan Prime to Sundering Titan that have been banned are from 'Player Issues' as you so call them.

I could totally understand if Zur were banned-as-a-Commander. Tutor on a stick, accessible at any time? Yeah, his reputation is well-earned . . .
