I know that there have been other EDH like formats that have come and gone, but did any of them have the momentum Oathbreaker has right now? I mean a few weeks ago I had never heard of it, then LRR plays it in a vid, and everyone is trying it and talking about it. I think with some refinement and updating ban list, it's here to stay as a faster alternative to Commander, the greatest Magic format.
Sorry but this format is really degenerate with literally everyones playes Mana Drain etc as their sig spell :/ also combo decks aince u can have TWO combo pieces outside the deck. We tried it and the decks just go from kitchen table fun to degenerate turn 2/3 combo kills really really fast.
This format really is NO fun <.<
I had paused right before it switch to Nissa and Triumph of the Hordes, and thought what about Vivien(WAR) and Triumph. My thought was play big creatures with Vivien the Triumph and win in one swing then i unpaused and saw that and thought his was better.
Nissa's Triumph, any Nissa Oathbreaker, but the GU one will let you play two color, and the 3 tron lands. Nissa tron. I came up with that one on my own. Also, that's just literally in standard aside from the lands of the combo.
Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Battle Hymn: run red token generators and x cost burn.
Chandra, Torch of Defiance
+1: Exile the top card of your library. You may cast that card. If you don't, Chandra, Torch of Defiance deals 2 damage to each opponent.
+1: Add RedRed.
−3: Chandra, Torch of Defiance deals 4 damage to target creature.
−7: You get an emblem with "Whenever you cast a spell, this emblem deals 5 damage to any target."
Her second +1 helps pay for second use of the Battle Hymn. (Battle Hymn 1Red: add red for each creature you control)
Make the tokens goblins for it's flood of tribal buffs, and add Coat of Arms for big payout.
Ten creatures plus Battle Hymn cast equals 10 red. Minus 4 to cast Battle Hymn again, 16 red. Minus 6 for a repeat, 20 red.
Once more gets you 22 red where you use a x burn to kill.
I FOUND YOU!! We missed you so much!!~
Now on a bit more serious note — yes I thought of putting a few extra-turn cards in it but I think was too sleepy and forgot to type it.
I’ll definitely try it out c:
Also Professor made a video yesterday about Tamiyo’s research on slivers. And IT IS SO FREAKIG ON FLAVOR WITH HER
You know what a cool Oathbreaker and signature spell is? Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Enter the Infinite :) BOOM!! Win-con in the command zone! AAAWWW just saw ur Jace deck.. WHY DID U HAVE TO RUIN MY IDEA???!!??
I feel like this format is going to be more about the signature spell and less about the planeswalker. Probably will end up like Commander where there are really only a few top deck lists and most of them use a similar signature spell. Also incoming price spikes on previously budget cards.
Wouldnt new unc kiora be better with eureka and a deck full of 4 power creatures? Im thinking Imaginary Pet, Tempting Wurm, Ground Breaker... You refill your hand so you can do it again next turn etc...
Quick question, any blue planeswalker spell + Foil? Does it work the way I think it does? Sure it costs and island and another blue card, but it lets a control player be more aggressive and fast, while still having a back-up plan?
Edit: if this does work, then I might buy a force of will instead 😈
Hello, I'm not associated with Weirdcards, but I am an administrator for the Facebook group about the format: MTG Oathbreaker Community
I encourage everyone to not only join the group, but to join the subreddit and discord (neither of which I myself am associated with) the community so far has been amazing and very kind overall!
The Jace + Mana Severance deck is a cute idea, but let's not kid ourselves, here - a deck with almost nothing but lands in it is fucking boring to play. Here, let me just do basically nothing for the first 5 turns, then win on turn 6 unless someone stops me! That sounds like fun.
It would be cool to see a few deck techs for this format with the usual commander. To be honest while there are a lot of really cool low ground aggro which my goblin blood burns with a deep passion I have also been interested in very large creature strategies as well. I came across a cool wurm commader deck a little while ago and I kind of wonder if it could be spliced into oathbreaker. I am not a deck building guy though so I would love to see a deck tech on that idea from people who know a whole lot more than I do.
Ral + Fury Storm is better than Ral + Twincast.
Here's why: Fury Storm copies itself for every time you cast your commander, and its CMC is the same as Twincast and Fork together, but with fewer mana restrictions (2RR instead of UURR). Essentially, having Fury Storm and Ral in your command zone sets the timer of the game based on how quickly you can get out enough mana to cast both safely, which is baseline 4URRR, not including any defensive spells. 8 mana to win anytime you feel like it seems good to me!
Honestly, oathbreaker Gideon could be hilarious. Use Amonkhet Gideon for his emblem, and with a 60 card deck, you have a much higher chance of drawing more gideons. Having Holy Day or Teferi’s protection on tap helps protect your Gideon, allowing you to never die. You can also do Comeuppance to really rub in salt.
Oh and this format really helps Werewolves. Allowing Moonmist on tap is SUPER helpful.
Umm Jumbo Commander, Oathbreaker has been around for years and only caught on recently do to war of the spark and dominari
Jace, Wielder of Mysteries then your signature spell Mana severance and 58 islands. ez deck to make less than 15$ wins turn 4-5 almost indefinitely and super consistent
As a mostly EDH player, this format seems really cool!
The faster pace allows to try something different and more limited card investment (60 vs 100) I think can facilitate the deck-building.
So far using cards parked in my collection I put together a Narset, Partner of Veils + Prosperity and a flavourful Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Deliver Unto Evil.
I can't wait for the release of Modern Orizon for an angel tribal built around Serra, the Benevolent.
i really like your last comment about the people with the expensive cards - its a thing i experience in our edh group. it can be so annoying. everyone who spent the money in the new month for the last few expensive card for a certain deck will probably win against those of us, who are playing the more janky decks, which are waiting to be filled with the expensive cards... it always feels stupid, and its same for mtg, when you have a playgroup with decks that are "paytowin". /edit: that makes it in edh that even "budgetish" decks with high powerlevels are NOT going to win against decks with a few expensive cards in it....
My favorite (and my playgroup's least favorite) deck I've made so far is Teferi, Time Raveler + Enlightened Tutor. What do I tutor? Knowledge pool. Because I don't like to play Magic with my friends, I like to have my friends watch me play Magic.
I put together an OB deck today with Kiora Behemoth Beckoner as my commander and Neoform as the signature spell. It's a +1/+1 counter deck with a minor Proliferate subtheme including Evolution Sage and Flux Channeler. It's been a blast to play so far!
Ishan Bhaduri I’ll try to keep it simple.
During your mainphase you have priority, which means that nobody can do anything until you give them priority. When you cast your planeswalker you put the spell in the stack, opponents get priority in turn order and can respond to the spell on the stack. After the stack resolve you have priority again since it’s still your mainphase. If your planeswalker hit the battlefield you can cast your spell or activate your planeswalker’s abilities. Doing either of those things will give priority back to your opponents, giving them a chance to respond. If you casted your spell and they destroy your planeswalker, your spell will still be on the stack and will resolve if it doesn’t get countered or bounced. If you activated your pw ability first and they destroy it you will not be able to cast your spell when the ability resolves, clearing the stack.
This however doesn’t really matter with an instant as your signature spell since you can cast it in response to your opponent’s removal spell.
Hope this clears it up for you. Feel free to ask anything that’s not clear.
So a question about the signature spell - what happens if someone plays a spell that has an alternate casting cost, say, 'Force of Will'. Could they keep using the alternate casting cost or would they need to pay 2 plus that cost?
