Admiral's Order Discussion
1 day ago
Thanks for the suggestion, but you are trying to suggest to turn my deck into what it already evolved from, since I had it like that before. Current version outperforms the one you are offering and some of the cards you have suggested are underperforming major in this deck either by slowing it down or ruining its purpose. As an example, River's Rebuke is slowing down the deck way too much and currently the goal of this deck is to be very fast as the matchups demand that. Much better choice is Sleep which does very similar and serves as an awesome finisher debilitating any fliers for next two turns. Also 2 Sorcerous Spyglass and Silent Gravestone is redundant, and one is more than enough. BTW the latter one does not counter God-Pharaoh's Gift since it doesn't target. As for the Admiral's Order I agree that it is a very nice card but when I used it I often found it being unnecessary since I usually have open mana for a Negate (which I would rather have in hand). I have been playing this deck for good 7 months and it has been earning me many major wins in my LGS consistently. Sideboard is something that is at its peak currently and I'm not to change it until new set is released. Also Sideboard is more of a preference and depends on what decks you play against the most; my friends at LGS are playing specific decks and thus it works out for me, but it might not be the same for you. I am more liquid towards changing mainboard if I see good suggestions. Thanks for your suggestions though.

I think your Sideboard is a little not consistent with a deck idea. We have to beat down our opponent very quickly and we have to stick to this plan. I was playing very similar deck based on Favorable Winds, so I guess we can use this same list of cards but with a little changes.
2x Blink of an Eye and 2x Unsummon - I was playing those in my Main Deck because the are allow us to go through enemy lines getting rid of scary, big flyers or opponent's bombs. You are playing 4x Dive Down instead of upper spells because of Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp and Tempest Djinn.
3x Admiral's Order - Great card against Mass Removal like Settle the Wreckage or other Instant Speed Removals because we are paying 1 Blue Mana instead of 3 Mana after our attack declaration. Still a 3 mana Couter Spell for something bad.
2x Silent Gravestone - Because Gifts and Zombies decks.
2x Sorcerous Spyglass - Planeswalkers and Combo pieces.
3x Negate - Against Control Matchups.
1x River's Rebuke - It may be useful and "Save a Game".
I hope I helped somehow :)

His, this deck looks really good but some choices are not optimal I think. For exemple Unwind, Perilous Voyage , The Immortal Sun, Profane Procession could be, as you said Cast Out, Take Vengeance, Admiral's Order, Noxious Gearhulk, Cataclysmic Gearhulk

Really strong for a first deck. You have an excellent foundation to build around. My chief criticism is that you're split between two different subthemes: counters and artifacts (Stompy being the primary theme). You'll find more consistent success if you commit one way or the other.
You seem closer to the counters subtheme and that also better fits better with the simic colors for Hadana's Climb Flip. That card is fantastic. I would add two more Jadelights if you go that route. I would also look at the new Skyrider Patrol, which will help you flip Climb and get through damage with the flying. Untamed Kavu is another great option that'll let you instantly transform your climb. Vivien Reid is your best planeswalker option if you go this route.
Tezzeret is amazing but only if you're focused on artifacts, which I don't think you are. Karn is nice for the card draw, so I think he makes more sense in the deck.

Ok I see why you play Admiral's Order in your side.
If you are on a full "counterspell your op stuff", ceremonious rejection could be a nice fit but I still think doesn't find enough target right now. You can counterspell Karn, Hearth of Kiran, those are powerfull cards. But it could often be a dead card in your hand too.

Poaralion Thank you for your feedback. I toyed with the idea of Chart a Course, but did not like the 2 for 2. Still toying with it. Your suggestion of Pull from Tomorrow as a good one. With the mana ramp, from the artifacts, it could be quite strong. Admiral's Order is in the sideboard for an answer to blue control during my second main phase. Which would be an ideal time to cast spells because of the mana ramp artifact's triggers. ie: Treasure tokens and the transformed Lotus-esqe land. Ceremonious Rejection would be a cheap answer to the the many powerful and key artifacts to an opponent's deck. (I am tired at the time of this response. I hope I made sense.) Thank you again for taking time to give me your feedback!

I think you don't have enough way to refill your hand. Without Curious Obsession, game will be hard. Maybe bring in Pull from Tomorrow ? At turn 4-5 when your hand is low on cards, it could help a lot.
Also, I find Admiral's Order weird as a counterspell in your sideboard. What are you trying to protect yourself from with thise ? Same goes for ceremonious rejection
Else, deck seems cool but I'm afraid it will lack some points of damage to finish the game.

Not a ton of legendaries get played nowadays but the ones that do are super annoying,game ending, and have to be exiled or their coming back.They are also really "build around me". I would suggest you try to look at all the legends cause even most aren't broken overpowered, they can promote crazy fun decks! Also instead of Unwind and Cancel I suggest Abrade, Admiral's Order.Abrade is versatile and can be used almost any time. Admiral's Order is strictly better than Cancel as it can be 1 mana sometimes. Also standard does have a Lightning Bolt in Wizard's Lightning it just turns into bolt when you have a wizard on the field instead,
