This deck looks like a mana hungry deck so you might want to have Smothering Tithe and I like the ideas of the sun forger and Zada there is as well Mirrorwing Dragon and what is your thoughts on soothing Alms Collector

Didn't see your message, but I am not a fan of TPB.

I mean, if you decide to run Smothering Tithe , Alms Collector , Notion Thief , Timetwister , Dark Deal it could work, but I don't think it is worth it using the stax variant we are running.

Daxos is not the primary game plan but I think he works best. I feel that Daxos has an easier time producing tokens for Razaketh, and he had synergy with the Win Cons. Bomberman Combo creates infinite mana, Daxos allows us to turn that mana into a win. I don't think a mana sink in the Command Zone should be underestimated. I really believe that for this deck, Daxos is best, but Teysa can lead different decks much better.

Tymna the Weaver is also an option, and she sometimes features in the 99, but if I wanted to build Tymna I would probably combo her with Thrasios, Triton Hero because that deck plays out similar to this one, just with more colors.

Alms Collector is an option and fits with the theme really well. If you can find a spot, put it in for sure. I haven't done any of the necessary testing but I can definitely try if you think I should. There are a few flex spots in the deck that I'm constantly swapping cards in and out of.

- Mono-White, I love sweepers and stax and efficient removal for all permanent types... and tokens, and lifegain?

- Selesnya, Now add ramp, more lifegain, more tokens, better finishers, pump, more removal (non-creature specifically), more hate/stax ( Gaddock Teeg ), and card draw?

- Esper, ake white, but add more lifegain/removal/stax ( Chains of Mephistopheles ) /tutors from black, then add countermagic, more stax ( Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium ), and card draw from blue?

- Yore-Tiller, yep, I like having Alms Collector / Consecrated Sphinx / Notion Thief / Waste Not / Smothering Tithe with Wheel of Fortune / Dark Deal / Timetwister / Windfall in a deck...

With all the wheels you’re playing, consider:

Consecrated Sphinx

Alms Collector

Additionally there is

Emergency Powers

Diminishing Returns

As additional wheel effects. And with all the cards you’re putting in the bin Treasure Cruise may be an effective draw spell.

As a finisher, rather than Banefire consider Expansion / Explosion as a way to draw additional cards, and, if you find that you are able to get through the entire deck, perhaps Labratory Maniac.

ShutUpMokuba I did do this one?

abby315 The whole point was for people to disagree... otherwise, I wouldn't have asked for thoughts or posted this? Also, there are many ways to use C-Rift, it is a versatile card, however, using it on endsteps as you mentioned doesn't mean you can't get attacked for a turn cycle (haste), it doesn't even necessarily give you resistance to permanent based hate. Aven Mindcensor , Notion Thief , Containment Priest , Cast Out , Alms Collector , Venser, Shaper Savant , Mystic Snake , Frilled Mystic , Seal Away , and Stasis Snare are flash hate permanents I could name off of the top of my head.

griffstick Sorry about that, you could use the point I made at the end if you want more answers to it. I hope that helps!

enpc I think at that point in a competitive game, Winds of Rebuke for decks like Kess, Blink of an Eye or Into the Roil are better most of the time anyway, and while C-Rift is another option, all of them are equal enough that I am sure you can see why it isn't a dominant spell in that metagame.

For casual, I said it clearly was really strong, no doubt. Just that when you want to spend 20 bucks in a casual meta, there are better options.
