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.

As Foretold Discussion

If you have problems with casting coloured spells, maybe you could use As Foretold? I've been thinking about putting it in my own stax deck as well, but here it seems to be even better. Metalworker is only really good if you can potentially win with the Staff of Domination combo...just for mana production it's a bit unreliable here.

elfric: Stax decks have an easier time getting value from As Foretold and having it stick around. I've also had good luck with it in Tasigur control as well. It probably could fit into a Rashmi list. It did so much work this game and I'm happy I was able to show it.

very interesting game
at first i thought As Foretold was winmore because the turns could have been
turn2 upkeep pay for fish crypt twister
turn3 instead of b2b and moon Wildfire probably would have won the game at that point too.otherwise letting fish die play third land spirit guide plus crypt mana into b2b and moon would be possible but with as foretold it was better because of the additinal countermana.
then i realized lightning bolt on scooze mana would not have been available.
it did some serious work and felt like a little seedborn muse.the difference is seedborn will give emediately "enough" mana and as foretold has to be early to be on the same impact level as the muse during midgame.

As sweet as As Foretold is, you don't really have a reason to run it, if your looking for 3 drops then you have Fraying Sanity as your best play, and counter magic to hold up for your opponents threats.
as for your early game, your going to get run over as it stands, try looking at Manic Scribe, you don't really have a way to turn on delirium, (you nearly have the card types in your deck) and you need better early blockers as it stands, or decks Mardue vehicles will just overwhelm you.
my last suggestion is just to find better early safety because you current early game will just get overrun as you spend you mana milling them instead of dealing with what they have after turn 3 or 4. If you want to keep As Foretold it can be good with card draw and counters, free card draw or mill spells on your turn then counter on theres, but it is really slow, because you need it on 2 or 3 counters before it does anything which is turn 5 at the best, and you spent turn 3 doing "nothing" so you need solid safety to make sure you can wait that long if you want to keep it.
I hope this was helpful.

EastsideRock I should probably have explained why I liked The Scarab God when I saw it. With my Esper As Foretold deck I have been making, I tend to NEVER tap my lands after turn 6. Im not exaggerating either, the only time I tap my lands is to combine a Bontu's Last Reckoning or Oketra's Last Mercy (or both) with a Liliana, Death's Majesty. I noticed with the deck that I need something to take advantage of my untap lands, so I went looking. From the top of my head I thought of the gods, but the only viable one would be Kefnet the Mindful and even then it took more than a few turns to fill up my hand. A couple of hours of testing later, The Scarab God got spoiled.
I'v been testing it since then, and it's perfect. While of course I am still testing and changing things in preparation of rotation, so far the deck is going perfectly. Ppls, if u got some ideas or questions about the deck, feel free to tell/ask me!
