Arcanis the Omnipotent Discussion

Biggen on Mono Blue Tutelage

8 hours ago


  1. Arcanis the Omnipotent and Keening Stone I believe that keening stone is a possibility to remove, it was in the deck as a big finisher just encase however Arcanis I believe is an extremely powerful endgame effect.Especially when the deck revolves around drawing cards to mill your opponent so with a sphinx's tutelage out this is a 6+ card mill.

  2. Void Shatter I thought void shatter would be a good graveyard hate card but If its a bad card then i'll most likely switch it out for the 3 mana counter spell you suggest that I run Dissolve for the benefit of scrying correct?

  3. Thought Scour is a must keep, the mill two is just a small benefit to the main effect is that I get to draw a card at instant speed which would trigger Sphinx's Tutelage. So in my mind I believe Thought Scour is a better choice then Dream Twist.

  4. Jace, Memory Adept and Jace Beleren I believe both Jace's would be able to fit into the deck in my mind. The Jace Memory adept draws me cards without doing the 0 cost ability but getting to 7 then I would do 0 until I need to finish them off.

  5. Swan Song I actually think the only reason I wouldn't want this is I might struggle dealing with the swan, fog banks can block it of course but fog banks are meant to be blocking bigger and scarier things whilst all the time this little swan keeps whittling me down?

  6. Ghost Quarter I thought this was not necessary seeing how It is a mono-blue deck but it does combo very well with Hedron Crab? so I would probably add it to the main deck.

You are forgetting Mind Over Matter paired with Arcanis the Omnipotent and Laboratory Maniac. I am gonna build a similar deck, and I love this God!

Learn from the Past, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Cathartic Reunion, Mystical Tutor, Consecrated Sphinx, Well of Ideas, please don't build this deck? It looks pretty awesome, actually. You could probably cut Arcanis the Omnipotent, Staff of Nin, maybe Nin, the Pain Artist, Mercurial Chemister, and Ogre Battledriver. Maybe consider running some counterspells and some more bounce removal? Pretty solid and there's already some good suggestions.

Wow, a lot of comments to respond to! In order...

gockley: Thanks for the comment! You say yours is more wheel-heavy: any good ones I'm missing, other than Windfall? I love the concept of Mindwrack Liege and Library of Leng here, those definitely need to find a slot, thanks! I do think Arcanis the Omnipotent is too expensive, and I don't want to give cards to my opponent with Fevered Visions, however. Thanks again! (And if you like the deck, you're always welcome to +1 the deck haha...)

Hamster2558: I'm afraid it's probably not worth it; it's almost always 5 damage to the player with the highest life total rather than giving me cards.

Fungreatmario: Nah, the deck's combos are slow - I can't consume all of T7 to set back my opponents unfortunately.

ArmorEuro: I've considered it, but it's 12 mana :( kinda win-more here.

Workman4137: Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is in here, but I'm not sure why Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius would fit (I think he's very weak actually). My plan for dealing with running out of cards is discarding Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to reshuffle my library - more efficient than Elixir of Immortality since I can also use him as a wincon. I haven't faced much mass discard (my meta tends to be very fast and low-CMC) but I should generate enough fliers to block Nicol Bolas, at least. For now I do have Purphoros, the most powerful token ETB effect, and I'll see if I need more... And I'm playing a silly combo deck where as many cards as possible try to draw into more cards (like a storm deck), so Counterspell effects aren't a priority at the moment. I would love Mana Drain if I could afford one (since it also works as acceleration), but for now it's out of my reach... Thanks for your comment! :)

lucal13: I'm undecided on Windfall here...if I have many cards in hand, it actively harms me because I "donate" that many cards to my opponents.

veggiesblowup: I'm afraid I do think he's too slow. The average CMC is already really high here, and I need to try and lower it further.

NV_1980: I could see that! Interesting idea haha.

RazortoothMtg: I've found that Kraum tends to give me an additional card each turn. Still, he may get cut - I'm indecisive.

Nightange1: I want Vicious Shadows in here, but I'm not sure it's worth the mana cost...

cujo253: I could see him, I suppose...I'll have to look into it more :)

Thank you all for your comments! And if you liked the deck, +1s are great - trying to make it from #2 to #1 ;)

I saw this spoiled yesterday and instantly sat down to brew some EDH.

While my brew is about wheel effects with a few more creatures as my table meta is pretty creature heavy. A few cards I have in my deck that are missing here (that I think are quite good) are

Arcanis the Omnipotent expensive, but you get to tap him for 3 cards. That seems good.

Mindwrack Liege Because 3/3 flyers are better then 1/1 flyers.

Fevered Visions The end step seems like a good time to put a locust out. Also hit your opponents.

Library of Leng My version is a little more wheel heavy, but uh... wheel effects putting your hand back into your library seem good. Especially from the sheer number of them you can run in EDH.

Arcanis the Omnipotent and possibly Mind's Eye would work great!

Also this card is so unreal as a commander I love it!

Holy card draw, Batman!

But for real, this looks super fun! A couple suggestions:

Desolate Lighthouse and Blighted Cataract seem like good includes. Low opportunity cost to play - just cut a couple basics. You may want to consider Boseiju, Who Shelters All as well since this is a spell-heavy deck.

Additionally, I'm not sure Day's Undoing works the way you want it to. Since Locust God's trigger would go on the stack in response to drawing the cards, it would exist on the stack before you hit the "end the turn" clause, and it would get removed and you would get no locusts :(. Maybe replace it with Arcanis the Omnipotent or Mercurial Chemister? Not great suggestions, but better than Day's Undoing here.

Teal_Fox on Mizzix

I've always felt like the most degenerate way to close out a game with Mizzix would be to run Mycosynth Lattice to essentially have Omniscience for Instants/Sorceries once you get your Experience Counters cranked up enough. From there, you would need something like Paradox Engine and a lot more rocks to start floating ridiculous amounts of mana and some kind of draw engine a la Arcanis the Omnipotent, Azami, Lady of Scrolls, or even a Temple Bell. The endgame would have to be something really silly like a Fireball or even a Laboratory Maniac, but you get the idea.

Anyway, that's just my take on how the deck can be run. I hope my inane rambling will help you find where you want to take the deck in some small way.
