Anticipate Discussion

Thanks for the comments.

rox5tar: I'm glad you like the story haha. I do like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, he doesn't really fit with the discard theme or the overall deck. His sacrifice ability depend on lots of zombies/vampires, but I don't have a lot of vampires and I don't think I'll be doing enough creature killing to warrant his abilities being worthwhile while he is on the board. Maybe he could fit in the sideboard against more heavy hitting decks like Mardu Vehicles when life is very precious.

Leatherankh: The cycling replaces itself pretty well. The discard is sometimes problematic. So this leads into Just the Wind. I don't think it has been performing like I was hoping it would. It may be because I just never drew it often enough in testing. I think I am going to replace it with more copies of Catalog, Cathartic Reunion, or adding in Tormenting Voice. I don't like that Glimmer of Genius costs more and provides energy that I won't use. I guess I could add Aether Hub if that were to be the case, but I think 4 mana is a bit steep regardless. Anticipate costs less, but I prefer the synergy with Catalog. I could try Anticipate as a two of to replace Just the Wind.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will continue to test the viability of the deck.

Sleight of Hand also can do work for you. Anticipate isn't bad either. Cards that grab just enchantment are few and far between, so cantrips are your best bet.

The biggest issue I see with this deck is that it has a ton of cycling and discard, but not a lot of draw power, which could lead to some empty hands at bad times. I would consider slotting either Anticipate or Glimmer of Genius into the deck and dropping Catalog. Also, there are better options than Just the Wind, despite the Madness aspect. Unsubstantiate also hits spells as they cast, and Disperse can also hit artifacts and PWs. Other than that, love the idea! +1

There's Dismember in the sideboard and talisman still ramps into blue, albeit painfully. Mostly it's part of the normal Mono-U list and I didn't see a really strong reason to take it out. I figured if someone was building toward the legit list they'd want the Talismans at some point anyway. They could be swapped for Dimir Signets, I suppose.I was just quickly looking for colorless non-eldrazi that cost 7 or more to synergize with the Conduit of Ruins, and Clockwork Dragon jumped out at me, it has some additional synergy with Tezzeret's Gambit so I figured it might work. Alternatively you could replace the Conduits with Steel Hellkites, if so you'd also want to take out the Gambits for something like Anticipate since there's less proliferate sunergy, and I'm not sure what else would be good to toss in for the Dragon.

Could I get your opinion HarrisonHarry ? What if I dropped -2 Satyr Firedancer for +2 Stormchaser Mage -3 Stoke the Flames for +3 Magma Jet then find room for 2 Thunderous Wrath . I feel like that would make this deck loads faster and also give it more random big win conditions. I feel like with Magma Jet and Anticipate in the deck, Thunderous Wrath would be no issue setting up.

Yah this deck could easily win t4 if you've got the nuts. T1 Soul-Scar Mage T2 Stormchaser Mage T3 Anticipate/Cathartic Reunion 1 drop spell T4 Insult / Injury with a 1 drop spell. Lots of IF's tho. Up voted you. Check out my new decks.

Shwang on U/W Approach of the Gideonz

8 Gideons seems like a bit much since you can only have one out at a time. Do you think that will be an issue? Also, how do you protect your Gideons? Since you have no removal and few creatures, I would be afraid of the Gideons being wide open to attack and dying the turn after they come out. You could add in some Stasis Snare/Cast Out and Immolating Glare to help with that.

Also, while I think Pull from Tomorrow is a pretty good card, it is expensive. I would recommend having some cheaper options for early game. I would probably bring Pull from Tomorrow down to 2, take out a couple of something else, and add in some Anticipate.

I do think Approach of the Second Sun is a really cool card. I plan to make some decks after it too. I like this approach!

If that infinite combo is your primary win con, I'd take out ALL mill cards that aren't part of that combo. Instead, use your UB for control, to stabilize the board until you get that combo online. Good cards in this regard are Thing in the Ice  Flip, Send to Sleep, Frost Breath, Unsummon (offensive or defensive), Doom Blade.

The other vital component is card draw -- Serum Visions, Pilfered Plans, Anticipate, etc. These will help you reach your combo sooner.

Hope this helps! If I can do anything else for you, mention me in the comments!
