Introductions and Changeling Combos - V.L. Sigma
Hello all, I'm V.L. Sigma, and if you're reading this, then
My mission was a success. You see, I've been going to Pojo's
site for 3 years now, and I've always found some helpful
advice, weather it be from deck fixes, forums, tips, or the
card of the day. Now though, it's time I participated in the
Yes that was corny, and no I'm not apologizing.
My brain thinks about CCGs and TCGs all the time. I cant
stop it, everywhere I go I think of combos, decks, pros and
cons of cards, etc. Sometimes I think I'm a little crazier
than most people, but it could be a good thing. Hopefully,
the powers-that-be at Pojo will let me vent some of my brain
activity into their wonderful website. So Gather round
everyone, cause Siggy's got an idea...
I'm so happy with what WotC has done with Lorwyn, being a
huge fan of tribal. Another thing I like is the inclusion of
the Changelings. Yes, they're used to help mingle tribes
together, but they also interact with any card that names a
creature type as part of the rules text. This will allow for
craziness abound. Here are some examples:
-Search out a Mirror Entity with Amrou Scout, and all your
tiny rebels aren't so tiny anymore.
-Changelings count ad warriors AND cowards for Boldwyr
-Changelings can tap for Patron Wizard, or can be sacrificed
for Voidmage Prodigy
-Count as a Goblin for Lorwyn's goblin crew, including Mad
Aunite, Boggart Birth Rite and oddly enough, Goatnapper.
I'm sure there are more interesting ideas, but a friend of
mine clued me into a loop with Haakon and Basalt Sliver.
Every player and their older brother knows about Haakon's
combo with Crib Swap. How about Skeletal Changeling though?
put that out there with Basalt Sliver, and you have an
infinite sacrificial loop. Sac the Changeling to make BB
with the sliver's ability, then use the mana to play from
your graveyard with Haakon's ability. All you need is a
permanent that does something when a creature either comes
into play or hits the graveyard. Here's a few:
-Bridge from Below
I call Shenanigans on this combo! *hint, hint* Anyway,
that's it for this broadcast. Hope you all enjoyed that
little glimpse into my brain cavity. Later days!
