If Ink-Treader Nephilim were to be a general, I think the fun would be over soon enough. Just use a cantrip on him, and you'll draw half your deck. Pick out any combo you like, and play it for the win.


Read the Friendly Card : D

It's actually like a combination of a Flagbearer and Radiate.

EDIT: I didn't really think this through enough. Certainly, casting something like Predatory Instinct on him would net you quite a few cards if there are a lot of other creatures in play.

Don't know the card you mentioned there, but yes, if there are enough creatures in play, a simple 'Target creature gets -1/-1. Draw a card' like Afflict, you get to draw a card for each creature in play.

Also, it doesn't matter if your opponent plays that card, because you own all the copies :D.

I like the idea of using the Nephilims as Generals, but you're asking there to be an allowance because of their flavour. If they get the go ahead, it opens floodgates for all the "legendary" flavoured cards, ala Sinbad and Soul Foundry [aww c'mon, only the best Timmy-creature-making Johnny-based card ever].

I know EDH is about flavour too, but you can't really make rules around flavour, so I'd vote against Nephilims because they aren't, in every sense of the word that matters, Legendary.

House rules go nuts though, just ask your local group and if they say yes, let 'em know what a game with Ink-Treader Nephilim and Pongify is like.
