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

I would like to make a suggestion of making room for As Foretold so you can start playing stuff for free (particularly Gideon) as needed.

Darkite I don't think they will ever print new good spells, let alone mill spells; and with 'good' I mean 'good' in relation to what creature(-based spell)s do. Example of creature-based spells are Atarka's Command or planeswalkers. They could issue a different good spell from time to time, but that only for the appeasement of older players; and if they ever do it (like Fatal Push) it will be for something a consistent portion of player need to rekindle their passion: they could print a good burn spell or a good counterspell, but never a mill spell because (a) Mill has no consideration in the competitive scene (for a good reason), (b) even at non-competitive levels Mill is scarsely played and (c) anyone who does not play Mill (or is simply on the opposite side of the table) is just annoyed by it (at least it is just boring to mill, and for some players it may even be frustrating or felt as invasive). So we have to aim to improve our deck only with better answears and better lands.
As Foretold requires a lot of turns (which means bullet-proof defence, which Modern traditionally don't offer especially for combo decks like ours) AND specific cards in hand at the right time AND suboptimal lines of deck-building and card-choosing. I understand the mini-combo with Ancestral Vision, but do we really need it?

Yeah as I expected. What are your opinions on some of the new Amonkhet cards. Could As Foretold be used in some sort of slow mill with tons of draw? Could Failure/Comply work as a stall spell? I don't think much else is being added to the mill's toolkit, at least for modern. It seems like they're just afraid of printing a decent mill card. sigh

Thanks for you suggestion, i play the expertise in Living End deck but i don't yet playtested it in Restore Balance.
I did not think about the 2nd effect of the expertise and the interraction with Restore Balance ...
As Foretold is a good suggestion :) i will test it after the release of Amonkhet !

If you keep with a low cost list, you'll need some value, you could try, Dynavolt Tower or Thing in the Ice Flip, but I don't agree about removing all the Pull from Tomorrow or Chandra, Torch of Defiance...
Since you play at instant speed, you might consider playing Brutal Expulsion, Lightning Axe, Hungry Flames, and Fall of the Titans. Also, if your meta is really aggro-based, try playing more Censor main and put Negate to the sideboard...
For your sideboard, I'm not sure about Bedlam Reveler, you could put it main instead, cause side, you'll rarely put it in, same thing for As Foretold... Fiery Temper is great, when you discard it... Your odds are not for it now...
For the other options, Fevered Visions is made for control matchups and as my frieds say "put four or put not". Torrential Gearhulk or Goblin Dark-Dwellers can cast you a surprise Expedite not to neglect...

Isn't the expertise counterproductive? Since you're getting a creature from it before casting Restore Balance, your opponent will get to keep one of his creatures, and get back the one you stole. You should probably play As Foretold instead. ;)

I went to a two headed giant prerelease, and my partner and I opened crazy stuff. He went simic ramp with Nissa and a foil Vizier of the Menagerie, while I went sultai cycle and -1/-1 with Archfiend of Ifnir + Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons/the black enchant which I forgot the English name that spawns insects combo. We also opened a foil As Foretold. We went 2-2-1 in the end, it was really fun!

So I see Sandwurm Convergence has ended up being added, I will say that card is pretty decent after being the victim of that card at prereleases. My opponent played it and even though I tried to stall with embalm creatures and other tokens from myDrake Haven and a bit of life gain in 4-5 turns I was dead.
I opened a Nissa, Steward of Elements which I may give a try in my Atraxa deck however I'm still not fully sure, and I will probably add a Sandwurm Convergence to mine as well. I was hoping more so for a Gideon and or As Foretold though, but no luck yet from my 27 total Amonkhet packs.
