Astral Slide Discussion

MindAblaze on Zur, the Cycling Enchanter

So if Im looking at this deck correctly, your goal is to tutor up Astral Slide and then beatstick with Zur when they cant block because their guys are getting flickered to ensure Zur keeps getting in?

+1 from me. Solid deck. A little cringe-worthy when you see that 98% of the price comes from the land base, but.. to be expected when playing competitive, I suppose.

Either way, I love the protection you can give your own Priest with Astral Slide. Looks like good fun.

+1 I appreciate your original Zur deck. Very solid list. One suggestion and I believe it's desperately needed: Containment Priest. Alongside Astral Slide it's vicious.

I built a Naya cycling list RGW Marath RiftSlide cycling & morph and would appreciate the perspective of another cycler enthusiast.

As far as cuts go I think you can turn the transmute cards into something else, especially if you are adding additional unconditional tutors. Anything that can't cycle has to be very special to be included, although I'm also not exactly sure how many cycling cards you need for the cycling combo thing to work in general. It's possible that card draw spells are mostly unnecessary with all the cycling and tutoring already going on...although you do need 7 in hand for New Perspectives to work...hard to say without testing the deck personally. I do like Treasure Cruise though since it will basically always only cost .

Some more random ideas... maybe turn Akroma's Vengeance into Wrath of God or Supreme Verdict so it doesn't kill your New Perspectives and Fluctuator. Grasp of Fate and Detention Sphere are both upgrades on Oblivion Ring too. Possessed Skaab and Restoration Gearsmith could be a great blink targets to recur cards with Astral Slide too. And Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo are pretty much the best ramp spells you can get in Esper, can't have too much mana. Good luck friend :)

Not sure you would be interested, but you could add cycling to the deck and play Astral Slide Other than that, the deck looks mighty fun to me

LeaPlath on Question about the Phasing ability

Like, there are no card that directly interacts with phasing. Nothing like Astral Slide in terms of value. All you do is play a deck with lots of memory issues. Their pro is they are sometimes cheaper. Their con is they don't exist half the time.
