luther on Infinite flicker combo for UB ...

2 weeks ago

Rite of Replication kicked targeting is a pretty nice vela finisher. I realize it isn't infinite, but 30 dmg to each opponent is real strong.

With Omniscience, you can go inf with cards like Sedraxis Alchemist, AEther Adept, Arctic Merfolk, Dream Stalker, etc... but there are stronger options than just bouncing.

Infinite sacrifice can be way strong, and I would suggest looking into mikaeus the unhallowed combos.

I see you're running Bloodline Necromancer. If you're looking for a good and easy way to win, I'd thoroughly recommend finding a place for a Ashnod's Altar. Aside from being a great sac outlet that can really ramp you ahead with all of the token copies you make, it goes infinite with the Bloodline Necromancer, making infinite copies of it with haste so you can swarm the board (or cast Inalla and use her ability if someone is using Ghostly Prison or whatever). It's also a very solid option when you've got a bunch of wizards with counters on them and a Marchesa out.

On the subject of counters, I'd also suggest finding a place for Sage of Fables and Metallic Mimic if you can, as those can give your wizards a little more kick for combat and all, which is generally one of their weaker aspects.

I don't have my decklist online yet, but I built mine primarily as a tribal reanimator deck that abuses creature sacs and ETBS, then reanimates them to do it again. One of my typical lines of play involves putting out a Direfleet Ravager, making a copy of him, saccing both, cast something like Animate Dead on it, creating another copy, and by that point the table is drained enough that even my smaller wizards can swing for lethal. I also run Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding, as those reeeeeally help the deck have some longevity. A lot of my deck also involves looting, for which I'd recommend Champion of Wits as well, as that'll move things along quicker for you.

Spellseeker has also done some work as of late. Vedalken AEthermage is the tutor wizard you mentioned and well worth the include. AEther Adept is also a good choice as well, making for some solid tempo swings. Anathemancer can sometimes be a great finisher if you can find ways to reanimate it. Sower of Temptation is also good, as you can steal a few creatures off of it (plus you can oftentimes sac them if you've got a sac outlet and they try to kill the sower).

Seeing that you also have a Dualcaster Mage, I'd encourage getting Ghostly Flicker for the deck. If you cast flicker on whaever, then flash in the dualcaster mage, you can go infinite and make enough wizards to kill the board. Same for Naru Meha, Master Wizard with a kicked Rite of Replication (the copies will die due to legendary, but you can make infinite copies of every creature on the board with all the ETBs).

I'm not really a pauper player, but AEther Adept maybe?

Nice Start. My version centered around Sage of Hours infinite turns, but this is way more kind-hearted. I recently retired him because he was very two-note (either infect or infinite turns). I also ran Man-o'-War, Shrieking Drake and AEther Adept with Aluren for infinite experience. Another infinite Experience combo was Cloud of Faeries or Peregrine Drake with Deadeye Navigator.

Now that the price has come down a bit Devoted Druid is a nasty little trick. Also, Deranged Hermit is 5 Experience for 5 which can really change a game. Panharmonicon is a neccesity as it makes your commander's etb skill trigger twice (and your ten creatures with etb triggers twice, too!)

luther on What card do I choose? ...

AEther Adept and Sedraxis Alchemist. Harbinger is okay, but not as good as the other two since it can't return itself to your hand like the other two can.

Riverwise Augur, Stonybrook Banneret, and Sage of Fables are all ones I would add.

I have an Inalla deck and have some problems choosing between some cards. What cards do you think is the best in my/a Inalla deck?

Magus of the Mind vs Magus of the Will

AEther Adept vs Sedraxis Alchemist vs Harbinger of the Tides

And is there any of these wizards that you think I should absolutely run, and remove something else? I'm not sure if they are more value than the wizards I already run.

Hi Panas,

Thanks for all the feedback! I've added some of the suggested cards, Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation are sure good card for this deck. So is AEther Adept, Sedraxis Alchemist and Augur of Bolas.

I'm also looking over the mana base. I haven't thought of it as so slow, so thanks for that. My budget is not that high but I've bought some of the suggestions.

I will play test the deck now and see how it feels and do some more adjustments after that. Thanks again for the feedback, let me know if there's some of the cards in my Maybeboard that I should take back.
