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 like janky combo decks, here you go:
The first one is a UR Training Grounds / Izzet Guildmage combo deck, and the other one is UG. I want to make a Temur version eventually but I'm working on other decks atm. (To get both decks down to $300, you just have to cut the fetches. Playing some non-shocks can also lower the price a lot.) Unfortunately idk if you can really 'upgrade' these decks without turning them into something completely different, since as far as I know there isn't a fully competitive version of Training Grounds combo, but the UR version has a lot of modern staples in it and you could probably branch out into Delver or something eventually.
Here's another deck you could try, it uses Waste Not to jank people out and is pretty fun to play in multiplayer (though that may depend on whether you find chaos/randomness fun): Waste Not + Wheels Most of the cost is from Surgical and Blood Moon btw, so if you cut those from the sb and cut fetches it's probably around 300.
Oh yeah, RNA released Electrodominance : https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/instant-deck-tech-electro-balance-modern
The deck basically uses Electrodominance and As Foretold to cheat out Restore Balance and make everybody sacrifice pretty much everything. Watch the deck tech for an explanation of how it works. To get the main deck to $300, I'd cut the fetches, Jace, Blood Moon, and replace some of the other expensive lands for budget ones. the $900 that's listed as the paper price is includes the sb, so I think cutting those in the main is enough to get it down to your budget. If that's not enough, it's probably fine to go down an Ancestral Vision and play Mana Leak instead of Remand. It seems this deck suits your needs the best since it hoses Tron lands, makes Bogles sac their creatures, is janky, and is also a combo deck.

Just having a low CMC doesn't make it a good deck. I feel like Call the Gatewatch is a trap card especially if you have access to much better tutors like Vampiric Tutor / Imperial Seal . As Foretold is slow even with proliferate. You also run a lot of creatures like Toothy, Imaginary Friend that doesn't focus on the superfriends aspect. I feel like your deck is trying to go in too many directions at the moment...trim some of the creatures for more tutors, interaction, and planeswalkers. Good luck!

Great! I'm glad I'm not far from the mark.
So, some somewhat relevant cards that are just suggestions with reasoning. I'd like your thoughts on.
Bounty Agent vigilant (ref. Stasis lock); also it shoots a deck's general.
Incubation Druid a bad version of bloom tender? Goes extremely well with the synergy of the deck already.
Lavinia, Azorius Renegade - on your turns 1-5 she's great. Probably a high priority tutor target early game, likely somewhat dead late game.
Damping Sphere a great anti-storm piece, comes down just as early as they win, so a solid option
Prime Speaker Vannifar an obligatory mention. Some people like bad birthing pod. At the end of the day - it's exactly that. So with this knowledge what you will
Smothering Tithe - a 2 card hard lock with stasis that is just dumb.
Wilderness Reclamation - same as smothering tithe. I feel like it's less good - but is probably better.
Vizier of the Menagerie - bad style of draw & mana fixing.
Tithe Taker - a bad grand abolisher... but another copy, I guess.
Chakram Retriever is the goodest boi, especially for abusing bloom tender
Conclave Tribunal is a 0 mana o-ring. Neat.
Dawn of Hope - a nice win-more card. Cute.
Deputy of Detention - a spicy creature version of det-sphere. Meh.
Guardian Project more 4 mana draw engines. Ok...
Spellseeker is a nifty wizard. Fetches your real tutors / mana drain in a pinch.
That's the best summary I could give for the recent set's new cedh options & possibilities for this build.

Heyho, thanks for the suggestion on my deck.
I think, here is nothing more to say. Only some small thing, that maybe can improve you game-play. Firstable: Reliquary Tower , you have a lot of card draw... I think Aluren is a good addition, maybe the better option than As Foretold . As well as Intruder Alarm in combination with your Axebane Guardian . And I think Triumph of the Hordes is a great wincon in this deck. What do you think about Karametra, God of Harvests ? I didnt try her yet, but have the feel, she could be very awesome, as a acceleration, but also against, massremovals and masslanddestruction.

Philoctetes I added the following cards because I already have them or they are cheap: Caged Sun , Ivory Tower , Thaumatic Compass Flip, Basalt Monolith , Clever Impersonator , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Viseling , As Foretold , Mystical Tutor , Swan Song , Terrain Generator .
Ahh and I took this card Sunstone , because I do not have snows lands and ~27 are a little pricey for me.

Maybe As Foretold to gain some free casts so you can cast more spells each turn?
Its on the expensive side but Sensei's Divining Top so you can access more instants and sorceries to keep casting. On the cheaper side, Crystal Ball for the double scry to set up that top card of the library.

QKey you may have gotten the briefing + vision combo from this article on it which unfortunately requires As Foretold to be out for that to work. Though thanks for the mention of it (making me search for that article). I unfortunately wasn't an active player during amonkhet so I lack many of the staples from then (outside of when kaladesh/amonkhet rotated and I bought playsets of the lands when they were dirt cheap, or when i ended up opening a few of the event decks in a target mystery cube). But if I ever get past this small wall of modern cards I need for this deck I might try out an As Foretold version (I'd also have to buy the rest of the visions).
I might also try out the mainboard rip version if I get more cryptics (or at least feel more open to trying it out, extracting tron lands is pretty good vs tron in most of my testing so far, might even trade the Peek and an opt for some Thought Scour action that oddly has some advantages in several matchups, or be a psudo shuffle away bad brainstorms) yeah next step is definitely getting cryptics.

The cmc curve is a tad too high. I would recommend cutting some high cost cards that doesn't do much in return for adding cards like Silence, Orim's Chant, Paradox Haze, Mystic Remora, Aura of Silence, Rebuff the Wicked, Swan Song, Flusterstorm, Praetor's Grasp, Faith's Reward, As Foretold.
Also more mana rocks can't hurt. Hope that helps!
