As Foretold


At the beginning of your upkeep, put a time counter on As Fortold.

Once each turn, you may pay rather than pay the mana cost for a spell you cast with converted mana cost X or less, where X is the number of time counters on As Fortold.

InfinityMinusOne on RUG As Foretold Delver feat. Crashing Footfalls

Thanks for the response! Wrenn and Six were in the initial build solely because they are a cool-looking new card that I wanted to test out. The initial thought was that they help guarantee Turn 3 As Foretold, can kill dorks/Bob/etc, and in the case of a long game can do cute things with their ult (unless I'm misreading the cards, retrace on Footfalls/Vision is disgusting with As Foretold, allowing the suspend spells to be cast from the yard for free every turn). That said, this is absolutely Magical Christmas Land in a format where a vast majority of games end early. I might relegate a couple copies of the walker to the sb, but they're not important enough to the mb.

I tested out Looting in the deck recently, and you're right - it's /very good/. Initially I was skeptical because it provides less-than-card-parity and can't be cast on my opponents' turn off an As Foretold , but the filtering is deeper than things like Opt and, as you said, it dumps things in the yard much more efficiently - too efficiently to be ignored.

Hour of Promise is spicy as all get-out and something that I hadn't even considered, though I worry it might suffer from the same faults that Electrodominance did - that is, it's bad off of Bloodbraid Elf and is a dead draw unless you've got a hit. I'll test it out, especially because it gets more powerful with more things in the yard, but I might pass. Thanks again for the advice!

I started puting together 5 color legendary tribal led by Jodah, Archmage Eternal and these are a couple cards I have included that I don't see on your list: Eiganjo Castle Day of Destiny Dragon Arch As Foretold Spirit of Resistance . A few to think about

Card seems nuts with Restore Balance , Wheel of Fate , and Ancestral Vision . That also gives really good synergy with As Foretold and/or Brain in a Jar .

The trick is finding a win condition that's a sorcery with CMC < 4. Maybe burn spells like Blightning ? Token makers like Call of the Herd , Call of the Conclave , or Supply / Demand (which also tutors)? Mill might also be viable using Breaking / Entering and Glimpse the Unthinkable .

You seem to be running two copies of Voltaic Key ... I don't think that's allowed in EDH.

If you're playing Mono-Blue good stuff, I highly suggest Mystic Remora as a source of early card advantage.

I also suggest running Counterbalance in conjunction with Sensei's Divining Top and Jace, the Mind Sculptor .

Preordain is good in conjunction with Ponder .

Windfall is good, like your Timetwister with Narset, Parter of Veils .

Clever Impersonator , Stunt Double and Phyrexian Metamorph are better than Clone . You should consider them.

If you've got the budget for Timetwister , Invoke Prejudice is pretty stupid good.

I think Cyclonic Rift is better than Nevinyrral's Disk .

Deserted Temple has REALLY good interactions with Thawing Glaciers . You should consider running it. Also, I think a basic Island is better than Halimar Depths .

In mono-blue, you might want to consider Back to Basics .

If you're running Academy Ruins , I suggest Mindslaver . It's a... good combo.

I think Blast Zone is better than Powder Keg .

I don't think you should run Bonehoard , because your general counters the first equip activation.

If you want to run Ancestral Vision , I suggest As Foretold . As Foretold also has the added benefit of being able to cast a counter spell for free on each opponent's turn.

It depends on how much you feel you need to hold up counter magic, but I think Stroke of Genius is better than Mind Spring , if only because you can cast it on an opponent's end step.

Strip Mine is useful as a 1-of effect to take out The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or other obnoxious lands. I don't think you need the Wasteland as well; you may have more luck with just a basic Island , especially if you choose to run Back to Basics .

Mana Maze is good in mono-blue decks, as is Sapphire Medallion .

Consecrated Sphinx is good as a value blue card. The card advantage is just nuts.

Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise are great for late-game card draw.

Good luck with deck building!

As Foretold is not that odd - there are a whole lot of cards like it: Archive Trap , Bolas's Citadel , Rooftop Storm , etc.

They are replacement effects that allow you to cast for an alternate cost. This language is used on cards with a static effect, such as As Foretold, Rooftop Storm, etc.

“Without paying its mana cost” is used in different situations, such as part of the resolution of a spell or ability.

Also, GreatSword - you spelled As Foretold incorrectly, which is why it linked to the deck.

So there's no reason to word it that way, when it's almost unanimously templated the other way? It's just weird because.

Lol, yeah. That's why I always tag with

As Foretold

In particular, the line "Once each turn, you may pay {0} rather than pay the mana cost for a spell you cast" is a little strange to me.

Are there edge cases where this is different from "Once each turn, you may cast a spell without paying its mana cost"?

Cards effects have to finish b4 resolving triggers. In this case, everyone keeps putting relevant permanents into play until no player wants too, then you resolve the draw triggers. To check this, go onto and look up card rulings for Hypergenesis . Also, you should play As Foretold . This will allow you to cast your signature spell without suspending it.
