Anticipate Discussion

Lens of Clarity doesn't really do anything, and Sphinx's Tutelage/Altar of the Brood has such a low chance at doing something that you might as well not run them.

Ojutai Monument isn't great either since you don't really ramp towards anything. I guess you could do Anticipate > 3-drop, which is fine, but not something you'll be going every game.

Graceblade Artisan is also very low impact when you only have Glaring Aegis to support it. Glaring Aegis itself isn't very good if you aren't trying to win the game fast.

Ojutai's Command is fine, but it's really asking for some 2 drops. Wall of Omens is good at grinding.

Profet93 Well the rule that punishes us due to messing with the lands was made because of something that happend on our first tournament here. Long story short one of the players was playing with a Mizzix deck. After a while he had enough lands, mana artifacts and experience counters that allowed him to Capsize evertyhing on the table, lands included. We couldn't do a anything from that point on, we would play a land on our turn, he would bounce back and that was it. Needless to say some people weren't happy with that and so that rule was born. Funny thing is, the people who got mad at it weren't the ones on that table playing vs that guy (I was one of the victims, was using my Mirri deck), we were fine with it, it's what the deck was supposed to do, but the others on the other tables saw that and some of them had something to say about it...

Regarding my deck, yeah I already took out some of the creatures and placed cards I already owned from your suggestions, for now I placed Anticipate in place of Impulse, stil have to buy it aswell.

Glad to know someone else who likes Talrand a lot. :)

You know what, if you ever come to Portugal tell me something, I would like to see your deck in action.

that's looking better. if it was me, and this is just me mind you i'd go something like this...

3x Disfigure 2x Go for the Throat 1x Tragic Slip 3x Mana Leak 2x Negate 3x Opt 3x Inquisition of Kozilek 2x Duress 3x Lingering Souls 3x Serum Visions 3x Supreme Verdict 3x Detention Sphere and then add creatures for finishers to your tastes maybe

-3x Arcane Sanctum keep the rest of your lands or go to a 4 of each on the duel lands? not sure the ratio you'd want or need for the spells you have.

sideboard maybe 2x Bile Blight 1x Declaration in Stone 2x Hurkyl's Recall 3x Ceremonious Rejection 2x Spell Pierce 1x Esper Charm 1x Sphinx of the Final Word 3x Anticipate

i don't know if this helps and i'm not trying to change your list for you. but, i think this keeps most of the list you had while maybe adding some things that could help make it stronger. idk, let me know. the main thing is to have fun with it whichever way you go and just enjoy it! take care!!!

Disciple_of_Doran the reason why i'm not using Goblin Electromancer is because my instant & sorcery cards only cost 2 or less. They are already cheap in my opinion.

I like the idea of using cards like Opt and Anticipate. I will put them on my wishlist.

Thank you :)

Always glad to hear that my decks are liked :)

If you're looking for cards to cut, I'm not a big fan of Anticipate, Essence Scatter, or Raise the Alarm in a deck like this. None of them really do all that much. I'd much prefer more nonland-permanent board wipes.

Opt and Serum Visions are both viable options in place of Anticipate, and can be swapped out for them if you wanted to since they're very similar in usage.

Here's my take on Anticipate over them, both are basically a 1 cmc version of Anticipate, with Opt going down 1 less than the others. Anticipate is useful as it let's you go 3 cards deep and choose any of them to put in your hand then put the others away, while in Serum Visions case you draw the top card no matter what, so it could be a dead draw while the scry afterwards is going to only come into effect next turn( or next draw). There's also the difference in sorcery and instant speed, so you can't hold mana and bluff a counterspell then cast Serum Visions before the end step of your opponent's turn like you could with the other two. Opt let's you go scry first which is nice, but seeing only 2 cards may not be enough for you to get the cards you want.

Since there's a fairly decent amount of copies of each card, putting them on the bottom doesn't make it so you have a reduced chance of getting it if it was a crucial card. Overall it's more a choice between if you prefer the ability to pull cards from deeper in your deck or top deck manipulation, in my case I prefer pull cards from deeper down.

WHAT A FUN LIST!!! Don't you think Opt or Serum Visions are better than Anticipate.

Cellar Door could be very viable if you use cards like Anticipate or Dimir Charm so you can filter what cards will be at the bottom of your library. And if you want Isochron Scepter to be a key part of your deck, you could activate it every turn.
