    Reckless Spite on the Forest and the Vizier.
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Doh! No responses...

    Damage? :oops:
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yep, so Vizier of Deferment dies, Forest dies and goes back to Melkor's hand, Vastwood Zendikon dies, I take 5, Horror token blocking Pathmaker Initiate dies, Beast token blocking Thragtusk dies, Pathmaker Initiate dies, and Thragtusk survives combat?
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yup.

    UUD...

    Rokapoke, your creatures cannot attack me or other me.

    Melkor, I'll be taking my Thragtusk back (-2 loyalty to Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker).

    Spidey, I do not distinguish between servants and victims. I cast Slave of Bolas on Torchling.

    Assuming that all of that goes off without a hitch, I'll activate Torchling's ability to force Relief Captain to block it, then I'll attack Melkor with the Horror that has to attack him, Spidey with the Horror that has to attack him, and Rokapoke with the Horror that has to attack him and with Spidey's Torchling (which Relief Captain will presumably block).

    We start planning our escape as we take the hits and have no responses.

    So you each take 3, Torchling dies, and Relief Captain dies?

    -2 loyalty to Nicol Bolas and gain control of Sun Titan. Obelisk of Grixis, tap out for Icefall Regent, tapping Fiendslayer Paladin. Attack Spidey with Thragtusk and each of you with the horrors that are required to attack you if able. Blocks/responses?
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Question about schemes: Do they just come every turn? Or does one have to be abandoned before another comes up? The reason I ask is that we didn't cause the previous scheme to be abandoned so is that one still in effect *and* this one or just the old one (Bow to My Command)?
  18. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Both schemes are active or "face up." Setting new schemes in motion is independent from the abandonment of schemes that are already face up.
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Dang. Okay, conferring...
  20. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    No blocks; we each take it.
