STUFFY DOLL OF DOOOM!!! I'm personally trying to make a deck around this card and it stumps MOST decks. This card pretty with a bunch of wrath damage effects like Pyroclasm and earthquake lessen the chance of getting swarmed and force an opponent to have big creatures, which are unable to attack with the Doll in play.

It really is a fun card. Although, 5 mana is tough at times. Not to mention, tramplers are all over this card. In limited, it seems like a very handy card. A card where your opponent can't rely on big beaters all the time.

The Duck's Rating: 2.75/5

What stuffy doll? This is obviously a voodoo doll.

The person who picks himself as the target for the voodoo is totally stupid.

It's time to start smacking the doll upside down and inside up. Because it hurts the player. Fireball, anyone?

It's an okay card. With some mana accel (RG deck, anyone?) This could really hurt.

3/5.

Or the Aura version of Valor Made Real.

I want a playset of these. They're fun, and I have a nasty idea with them. Too nasty for the internet. :D

Or En-kor cards plus global damage, that would work as well. I personally think it's overrated as a simple -X/-X kills it, but I seemed to be overruled by the rest of the world.

2-ish/5

Good point.

So you're gonna hit me with a trampler?

-casts Pariah/Pariah Shield on doll-

Me Felix. You doomed...

Then again, if some mad nutter makes the target himself, then...We would have an endless loop of unresolved damage.

Which must be stopped at some point because of the way the rules of Magic resolve infinite loops.

Actually, I don't think they do, but I'm not sure. But I do know that if you didn't have a way to win the game, or your opponent didn't have a way to disrupt it, somewhere between your Worldgorger Dragon/Animate Dead infinite mana loop, the game would end in a draw, so I'm pretty sure that infinite loops won't resolve until someone dies, or it's been deemed that there is no way with the cards in hand or on field to either trigger a loss, and no way with the cards in hand or on field to stop the loop, in which the game would end.

Apparently, Guilty Conscience, a card I didn't even know existed, let alone could be played, creates an infinite damage loop with Stuffy Doll too. Go figure.

2 words.
Guilty Conscience.
Simply put, i have 3 stuffys (only cuz i cant get a 4th), and 4 guilty consciences. Sure, i play extended, but thats the beauty of it. Everybody except hardcore tourney fans love extended! and with things like this, they'll love it even more, especially the Timmys out there. Now for the Timmys in Standard, Niv-Mizzet and Ophidian Eye make for fun. Just saying.
4.5/5 just cuz of the mana cost.

Hmm, the hurt-this-card aspect reminds me of the Slivers...

Go on, try it.

First, put a Fungus Sliver into play. Gives slivers a +1/+1 counter when they're dealt damage...

Then, a Quilled Sliver that gives slivers the option to hut a target attacking/blocking creature...

Attack, Quilled Sliver, Fungus Sliver effect.

All in all, put a card that deals X damage to target creature/player, use it on stuffydoll.

2.75/5

Why not just put a card that does X damage to target creature or player... and send it at his face?

Also, it's probably a better idea to use Psionic Sliver over the quilled, as you get twice the number of counters, unless you happen to have Serra's Blessing out, and get to mass shock your opponent's board as well.

Stuffy Doll looks fun. I can honestly see myself playing it. It has potential to be abused.

It also has the potential to be Sudden Death/Darkblast'd. Or maybe that's just me.

you see, another thing about Stuffmaster is that it doesn't target. it CHOOSES. so Ivory Mask is useless against it. Yay!

Does any top tier deck that can support it actually use Ivory Mask over Matyr of Sands? Excluding the odd deviant control build.

fyi, Martyr of Sands sucks. Nobody uses it period. At least, not anyone of renown on the official MTG forums.

No one of great renown? Dude, have you seen the results of Martyrtron? Top eight at Worlds? Fifth most popular deck on Magic the Gathering: Online? Where are you getting this information? Also, if it's good enough for Gabriel Nassif, it's good enough for me. As another point for my arguement, in a deck that can support it, a Martyr of Sands slows down the clock about as much an Ivory Mask does, maybe even more so. Ivory Mask will stop maybe 4-5 points of damage, unless they are planning on straight burning you at. A Martyr gives you an extra 6-9 life to play with, even something like 12 in a mono-white deck. Ivory Mask gains you, and I'm being generous here, the damage that may have been dealt to you by a Volcanic Hammer and a Char, or seven points. That maximum is only one more than the probably minimum a Martyr will get you, not even considering the chump block, for twice the mana. Also, a deck that has the burn to do something like that will likely be able to wipe you out by the time you manage to drop the Mask, and if not, the turn after.

My opinion on Ivory Mask was probably a bit preemptive, but as I look through the Top 8 at Worlds, I see something like 2 Ivory Mask total, and none in mainboard. That's what I was judging my opinion off of. Similarly, when I look through the 10 most popular decks on MTGO, I count a total of 5 in sideboard. Also, you using Ivory Mask does not echo unto the majority of the M:TG community.
