A very thoughtful reply!

I can't believe I overlooked Misty Rainforest in tandem with Crucible of Worlds / Ramunap Excavator . It makes less sense from a single use perspective, but as an engine it holds incredible value.

Even if you would rather be winning, I would still suggest slotting Mouth of Ronom . Having that extra flexibility can rarely hurt, the cost for running it is so extremely low. Lets you wipe out hatebears that might be causing you a problem too Ethersworn Canonist Spirit of the Labyrinth Eidolon of Rhetoric (All three see play in stax lists, among other bears).

Have you run into many rule of law effects? And how do they interact with your deck? Rule of Law Arcane Laboratory Eidolon of Rhetoric . These seem more painful for your build than tax effects (barring tax landing on turn 1).

In my opinion, Reclamation Sage or Caustic Caterpillar should be considered before Carpet of Flowers , but any of them are good includes.

Unfortunately I can't upvote anymore than I already have but have you considered running cards like:

These are some cards to consider for running Stasis lock. I would highly recommend Forsaken City as you can literally tap out and continue to pay for Stasis. Teferi also helps with this strategy as it untaps your permanents while Stasis lock is enabled. Snapcaster is there for redundancy spells to reuse. Overburden is great since you are playing creature light and really hates on creature heavy decks. JTMS is good for the manipulation as well as card advantage, not to mention to bounce the abundance of effects and can be another line to win the game as well.

The other assort spells can also be great as you want good cheap efficient spells or free cast spells. You can also consider Arcane Laboratory as well to stall the game longer and keep a lock on the board.

Hope that helps buddy!

Winterblast on Sen Triplets budget deck help

A possible way to make Sen Triplets stronger with cheap cards is to add stuff that lets people only play fewer spells per turn: Rule of Law , Arcane Laboratory , Eidolon of Rhetoric , Ethersworn Canonist . By doing so, you won't have people dumping their hand as fast and you will have 4 rather full hands to play with. Save instants for opponents turns and cast their cards on your turn.

In case you didn't know, there's a second version of Rule of Law called Arcane Laboratory -- Just in case you needed a little redundancy! Really like Varina control strategies though, good work!

Kiyomei on Lavinia Omen Pool *Primer*

There is also always the possibility that even though you have a Knowledge Pool out, people can still get your win conditions out of the way pretty easily if it's not already countered or nature's claimed xD...

You see when Knowledge Pool is out with your commander and you have a sort of win condition or something to speed up the clock in your hand you still need to let it go under the pool and cast a second spell to get it... At this point, a single instant of your opponents will cause you to lose that card due to the fact that they get to pick first if you have nothing to respond to it and they'll just choose your card and it'll get countered...

Even though Knowledge Pool is the better lock card I still think you should add a few Rule of Law cards as it creates another layer with omen machine which still isn't a hard lock if they reveal a land but hey... and they act as a backup plan when your commander is removed from the game as most of them are fairly low CMC too like Eidolon of Rhetoric or Arcane Laboratory and synergize with both pieces...

This is what I've done with the 2HG support Lavinia for my Derevi deck ;)...

Yo jktsub!

You can consider adding in Thought Vessel as a secondary Reliquary tower for you.

Some other cards you can consider adding in is:

Hope that helps!
