Anticipate Discussion

viperfang4 I'm running Shock over Wild Slash because Gideon is technically the only thing that can give Ferocious. I didn't update the deck since Hour of Devistation so I'm definitely swapping out Anticipate for Supreme Will. I was thinking about adding Dragonlord Ojutai because I'm not sure that I like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar in the main. Thanks for the feedback I really appreciate it.

I hope you can make it possible, as i love the idea of a hedrondeck.

I dont see a reason for Curator of Mysteries and Drake Haven and would replace them with more control options like Fatal Push, Grasp of Darkness or more counters.

Engulf the Shore could easily be mass removal spell such as Yahenni's Expertise

More deck filtering could come from Anticipate or Catalog

Good luck with the deck!

Does Thing in the Ice really work? at 2 mana, it's horrible to cast on turn 2 (as most of your spells are 2 mana, and you let your opponent cast whatever they want), and if you cast later, you could run out of spells to trigger TiTi. Instead, you could run more Blessed Alliance in sideboard, as you can kill annoying critters like Hazoret the Fervent. Some graveyard hate like Crook of Condemnation or Scavenger Grounds may be good to stop any BG constrictor decks still using delirium, as well as getting rid of any eternalize or embalm creatures in the yard (especially if you didn't shoot them with a magma spray). cutting a Summary Dismissal for another Supreme Will seems better, as you probably won't have a large stack of spells and abilities to counter. being able to Anticipate or counter is definitely better than a stack-wipe (i'm just gonna call summary dismissal that). Again, cutting TiTi would let you put a summary dismissal in the sideboard.


This is a really great deck! Sorry that your cards got banned, WoTC has been banning way too many cards this year (and the previous year as well).

Alright i understand the combo.

-2 Grasp of Darkness, -2 Bone Splinters, -2 Island, -1 Tezzeret's Touch -1 Zulaport Cutthroat, -1 Slip Through Space, -1 Fatal Push.

+2 Bontu's Monument, +2 Inventors' Fair, +2 Anticipate, +2 Morbid Curiosity, + 2 Whir of Invention.

These changes will add 1 combo piece, 2 sac outlets that also allow you to dig for other combo pieces, 2 cards to dig for combo pieces, and 4 tutors for your combo. I personally believe having cards to find cards for the combo is more important then having cards like removal where you worry about their board state and not your own, hence why i would replace removal for the cards listed.

Fair enough, my opinion on Censor is personal as much as based on experience, and I understand some people really like the card.

I typically don't run 4x of legendary creatures or plainswalkers. Not saying you're wrong to do so, but I'm curious as to the reasoning. I keep wanting to find a way to squeeze Anticipate or Supreme Will in to filter your hand, it made a big difference for me going from 2-4 card draw spells to 7-9, having that ability to dig for a specific land, counter, removal, or creature. Turn 2 Anticipate often keeps the land drops coming, where as you won't be playing Glimmer of Genius until you get 4 lands down. And is Sphinx of the Final Word already denied? It's horribly typical of a control deck to have 1 in the sideboard, but you may suffer for not having it.

I don't consider myself a control or B/U guru, half of this is me trying to fish out your thoughts on my unproven opinions. But I've come to love B/U control and plan on continuing on with it after half of this stuff rotates in Oct.

Have you considered treating yourself to some Spell Quellers? They are an invaluable card when you have access to blue and white.

Also have a think about replacing Anticipate with Supreme Will. For an extra mana, you get access to the option of a counter spell or a one-card extra Anticipate effect.

Hey there, multimedia -

I have my test group coming tomorrow evening to run our decks through the gauntlet. I will try out your suggestions on the Aether Hub and Harnessed Lightning additions. I cut down 1 Abrade and the three Anticipate in order to include them. I can lean on the cycling from Censor and the searching from Supreme Will to find the land/answers I need instead of Anticipate. Will see if that works.

Added in the Aether Hub and took out some of the lands that can likely come in tapped, namely the 3x Choked Estuary and one Sunken Hollow. Also replaced the Bontu sweeper for a Sweltering Suns. I put a Sweltering Suns in the main in place of the Unlicensed Disintegration due to the fact that I now have Harnessed Lightning that can take care of a larger threat if my counterspell wasn't available to get to it.

Thoughts?
