It could be just like in something like Star Trek: the new guy dies first.

... If we're hearkening back to the pre-2000 era of TV that earlier Star Trek years belonged to that would also be the token black character dying first. @_@

Let's hope not!

Spore Frog. Reality Twist. Hope of Ghirapur. Strip Mine. Perhaps even Eldrazi Conscription.

She's going to be mean.

(Break out the Tajuru Preserver and Angel of Jubilation, you're going to need them.)


Fortunately, you can't run Reality Twist because of its color identity.

Begin the "from the command zone" arguments...

New Exalted commander? Too bad he's mono-color.

a.k.a. Coffer bane

Not very useful for EDH, but an artifact Cloudpost seems interesting.

I can't believe nobody's mentioned this one yet:

Cabal Stronghold
Dominaria (R)
Land
Tap: Add (Colorless) to your mana pool
Tap, 3 : Add (Black) to your mana pool for each basic Swamp you control.

It's not abusable with Urborg but still...

Also, just like with RTR block Standard will have both allied and enemy buddylands alongside "actual" duals.

He is the right cmc to play Dragon Fangs, though. He's not super good, but he's hilarious.

It's really not worth mentioning as it doesn't net you mana until you control five lands, 4 of which have to be basic swamps. Mono-black and some two color decks might want it, but the basic requirement and the increased activation cost make it a less than desirable alternative to coffers. With those conditions in place, it would not have been terrible to make it all basic swamps and not just the ones controlled by the Stronghold player.

It is abuseable with Urborg if your other lands are still basics. You will have Basic Land - Plains Swamp, Basic Land - Island Swamp, etc.

"Slight worse than coffers" is still extremely powerful. It's also got the upside over coffers in that it's not a dead draw early game. Unless there's an Urborg in play Coffers does nothing prior to T4.

Technically yes, but ever since the banning of Primeval Titan Coffers and friends have been pretty bad outside of mono black.

Still, I hate the "1 card combo" term, it's misleading.

Typically a "combo" is what happens when you have those cards together & are able to activate/use them. ... you can't combine a single item. Also, you don't have the helm (in the examples given) in hand or anything, you have it in your deck. No other type of "combo" (other than these "1 card combos") assumes that the cards are just somewhere in your deck, they assume you have drawn the cards (or already have them in play), and that they aren't in your graveyard. I don't think I've ever seen a "1 card combo" work when what it's trying to do is already in the graveyard.

Coco wrote:
If you don't like the term, then that is fine, but it does have a generally understood meaning that is helpful in conveying that the combo has an advantage over most other "two card combos".
That's called a "Combo enabler." We have a perfectly good & descriptively accurate term ... why create & continue to use such a misleading term?

Also - I'm still not worried about this combo.


So, the Helm with Aurelia, the Warleader is also a ton of extra attack steps. Essentially four Aurelia means for extra combat steps. You should be able to take out at least one or two people, and you might even have an extra combat step to spare. This is also a pretty "casual" way of doing things, as I'm sure there are much more bloatrous things to equip on. The helm has become a concern around here, but so far we're leaning toward "more removal".

Completely unrelated to Commander.

Skirk Prospector is in, which feels sort of broken for Modern.

Time to dust off the old Frogtosser Bannerets and see if they can stand in for Goblin Warchief (hint: they probably cannot).

Why do they need to stand in for Goblin Warchief? Why not just use Goblin Warchief?

Did I miss the memo that Goblin Warchief is in Dominaria too? Otherwise, Scourge isn't in Modern, so, yea.

Edit: Yes, I did miss that memo.

Wow. Modern just got a lot more interesting.
