@horologium said in [CMR] Wheel of Misfortune:

No, if you choose 19, you'd lose 19 life. Then, you'd discard your hand and draw 7.

You discard and draw 7 if you chose the larger number, and if you choose the smaller number, you lose that amount of life but don't discard or draw.

No, if you chose the smallest number, you don't lose life. Basically nothing happens to you then.

Haha, I love this card. Just how a Goblin should be. It's kinda awkward with counterspells, though.

Wow, this is a great card! I'm really looking forward to testing this and see how it fits into various hatebear shells and if it can take some of the slots of Thalia 2.0 and Deafening Silence.

Though I gotta say that from a design perspective, I'm not a big fan of this card. The two effects don't really make that much sense together and it seems a bit lazy to just jam two already known effects onto one card. Why not make the first ability something like "Lands can't enter the battlefield from anywhere other than players' hands" - or if they really wanted to use effects we already know, the Ankh of Mishra effect would fit better here.

Lol, this is fun. It hits Hogaak, Hollow One, Rootwalla and, as mentioned, Vigor as well if they try to destroy it. Also drops Deathrite from gaining life.

if it was a symmetrical effect that would be cool.

If you're replying to me, then I did actually propose it as a symmetrical effect.

Oh, a fantasy card thread. Haven't had one of those in a while.

Is this the only comment you make on this board?

I also complement good Vintage original content. Unfortunately I haven't seen an opportunity to work that muscle in a while.

Well, you could try posting some yourself 🙂

Dual lands that said "Players can't search libraries unless they pay 1", I would play.

Wouldn't that just be strictly worse than true duals?

No, not strictly worse as in you would never play these over regular duals. They would just go in another shell, though.

@guli

You make some excellent points, and I agree with everything you say. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Deafening Silence, and I've played it myself both maindeck and sideboard (and I'm also trying it out in the sideboard at the moment). Heck, I've even played Eidolon of Rhetoric maindeck at some point.

I think there's actually of lot of theory that could be discussed in this regard, like "speed vs. disruption" and "bombs vs. general utility (do you play cards that are very impactful in a few matchup like but dead in other, like Deafening Silence, Grafdigger's Cage, Chalice of the Void etc., or cards that are decent to good in a most matchups but aren't almost game winning in any specific matchup, like Thalia 2.0, Phyrexian Revoker, Scavenging Ooze etc.).

Hatebears can be designed in so many different ways - which is the wonderful part of the deck - and it all depends on the approach you're taking. You and I play very different decks with very different approaches, so comparing them directly and stating that one card that is good in one deck is also good in the other would be wrong (not saying that that is what you're stating, but you know).
