    Must be a commander 2013 spoiler

    It’s kinda weird. u benefit from it dying and u casting it again from the commander zone.

    • Momo

      Those are often the most fun generals imo, becuase they won’t make you sad when they die:P

  • Andy Dondes

    I don´t get unless you have a thing making it cost more (Like the leeches) She will only exile the top four cards of each players library right?

    • Momo

      These effects were meant to be used with commander tax. But they can be increased in other ways.

  • :D

    she’s hot

  • Somnom

    In the right deck, I think that this will be the Grixis Kaalia.

    • Garrett Horton

      lmao even if your opponent has right deck this is deadly

  • welan

    this with cruel ultimatum glorious

  • anon 36

    I really hate to point is out but is at her nip near the bottom of her arm?

  • noob-man

    I just came to point one thing out THIS CHICKS FROM INNISTRAD WOOOOOOOOHHHHHH!!!

  • Bounce

    Just how hard does she break time stretch? Like after you cast a spell exiled with her does it appear in your graveyard or can she just do it again? If so any taking another turn effect and her will auto win. If it goes to the graveyard she will be balanced and quite fun

    • guest

      you cast her, x number of cards are exiled (lets say 4). you cast a card exiled -like time walk, and then you have 7 cards still exiled and ready to be used (3 of your cards 4 of your opponents -7 if you happened to hit 8 instant and sorceries on her first casting.

      the card does not go back to exile after you cast it with her effect because you are not “imprinting” the effect or anything you are just pulling the cards from exile and casting them for free -and usually after you cast a card it goes to the graveyard :P
      i wondered the same thing at first but then i realized that wizards wouldn’t do something that stupid :o

  • Gilligan Isle

    Uhm forgive my stupidity wouldn’t X always be 4?

    • Theif

      No, in the Commander format, for each subsequent time you cast your commander, you add 2 colorless mana to its mana cost.

      • Garrett Horton

        i can also make it 3 and 0
        omniscience and cast from hand X=0
        and theres a card where everything costs -1or 2 colorless mana to play

        • JaceDovah

          only if u hace Jeleva in your deck as a normal card, with another commander, because Omniscience works only for cards u cast from your hand, not from the commander zone, so if Jeleva is your commander u will never play it for free ;)

          • Garrett Horton

            evacuation…..

          • Bennyboy

            Return target creature to hand….

  • james

    so a creatureless deck… all the take turns and all combat phases theres about 16 cards of the deck right there that are infinite… and all the tutors…. i just cant see this being fun

  • MtgMind-Welder98

    Hhmmmmmmm…Bolas colors….not that I am giving anyone any ideas on the spells to use……

  • Control Freak

    going online on November 1st and buying this deck ASAP as she looks fun to play. Imagine exiling something big and scary (Cruel Ultimatum all the way!) like a jace or an avacyn.

  • Mick Cortella

    she is going to be the new kaalia of this set. cant wait to get her!!!

  • Tetsuo!!

    This thing is so majestically evil.

  • The Apocalist

    Man, I was torn before, but this plus Nekusar and maybe even Crosis makes me really fall in love with UBR.

  • Cursed

    What happens if you blink her? When she comes back into play, does her exile effect go on the stack for whatever you spent when you last cast her, or for zero as she is considered a new instance of herself?

    • Cursed

      For that matter, what happens to the exiled cards if she dies? Surely you cannot play them when you play her the next time? Wouldn’t the same thing happen if she was blinked?

      • Andrew Soper

        Yes any card EVER exiled with her is usable.
