I had a really mean combo Animar deck when he first came out, and I did this in the last game I played with it.
Lots of counters on , people getting desperate but I had run out of cards to cast.
On my turn, I draw , and cast it for a bunch.
Everyone thinks I'm insane as they cackle gleefully and pull all their best stuff.

I dump the creatures I got into play and then

Not too many happy faces that day... :twisted:

So is deceptively powerful as a commander...

I'm playing Zombie tribal and I have turn 3 turn 4 , turn 5 . I've been ahead the entire game, and only just recently lost my undead hoard of tokens and my enchantment. Thraximunder is on the table now and is sitting at 8/8. Most of my opponent's library is either in the graveyard or exiled and turned into zombies; she's down to 28 cards in her library, and her bow, , and . I'm feeling pretty confident of my board position here when it happens.

She draws for her turn and slams down her eighth mana source. She taps out and play . So all the cards I've milled into her 'yard have come back to bite me. She effectively drew most of her library. She plays two lands, plays , on Thrax and says go. Well, now I'm in trouble. I draw, play my eighth land and say go.

She untaps and plays and , followed by three lands and makes three 7/7's. Now I've gone from shaky to very scared. I draw, play my land, play Thrax and say go. I know she has in her hand because it fell into her 'yard earlier. Sure enough, she untaps, plays three lands, makes three 7/7's and then cast G-wave for full value. She had been using the Bow to save creatures from my Alchemist, so wee saw all new cards... including .

Let me tell you, it is quite the sight to see a small army of 7/7 flying, hasty, trampling, vigilant, first-striking, protection-from-your-deck beasts flying at your face...

A play a few of us still chuckle about from a couple years ago.

to my left, to my right. Me and the person across are irrelevant.

Everyone's off to a slow start. Turn 3, Hanna player isn't really sure what to do so decide's to feel like he's doing something and attacks Mayael for 1 damage.

.

He never thinks it's funny, we all think it's hilarious.

decided to cast and going off immediately by doubling it's counters with . Before the game becomes even more dangerous, I go all out against it. Fortunately he fails at drawing dangerous stuff, so I can bring his life total very low. Then he drew ... Fortunately I had equipped with , and later drew , so I was able to survive the assault and came very close to kill him. He then drew and used its ability to survive just a couple more turns. He then tried to my creatures, but couldn't care less about Tamiyo's Emblem.

Then he drew to finally destroy Quietus Spike, but it was already too late. He was at 1 life and I had 4 damage on the board, while the Bow could only win him three life. But then that smart-ass figured he could just cast Beast Within on it's own Bow! In other words, he could use the Bow's ability, destroy it, cast it again, then use it's ability again. Now he was gaining 6 or more life a turn. After going through my deck, I realized I had no answers left to try and stop him, so I eventually conceded.

Yes, you heard it, folks. Bow of Nylea wins games. And it does it with the ability you would least expect.

I was testing my newborn Kurkesh deck against maiden77, who was playing his Chromanticore bestow/enchantress.
My last turn started with me going to 60 red mana and it went downhill for my opponent from there. With Kurkesh on board, I was able to draw mucho cards from , then go on to get into an infinite loop including , , and .

I ended up in a 1v1 playing , against a friend's . The game has been going on for a decent chunk. I've stalled on lands so my is only grabbing smallish creatures, but I have so I have a decent amount of mana. His MW is stuck facedown on the battlefield thanks to , and had hit an empty board (long dead) and some other piece of non-action.

I've stolen his with , but he's clocking me with a 4/4 that keeps sneaking through a .

I cast , copying Master Biomancer (3 counters for 11/11). the Quicksilver Biomancer comes down as a 22/22. Braids hits the board as a 39/39. I pass the turn, knowing it is the last turn before I have to give his Biomancer back so that I can start Shackling anybody who he tries to Rouge's Passage. He swings with Crackleburr, putting me to 5.

Put up or shutup time, basically. Untap the Shackles and give back Biomancer. Nothing useful in off of Braids, but my draw step gives me . I don't even both with math before slamming it and chosing . She ends up being 74/74, so we count cards in play/hand before seeing whether I've just done a bad, bad thing. Turns out there are 24+Braids, so I draw all but 1 card. isn't the last card in the deck, so I'm able to reduce my opponent to negative triple digits.
