Baral's Expertise doesn't allow you to cast cards with a CMC greater than 4, meaning that you can't cast cards like Etherium-Horn Sorcerer or Darigaaz Reincarnated off of it.

I think one of the biggest improvements this deck could see would be in the mana base. Breeding Pool (cheap thanks to RNA), Simic Growth Chamber (works great with Tatyova), and Flooded Grove would be great additions. Some more of the cycle lands could also be useful, like Tranquil Thicket and Lonely Sandbar . I recommend removing Transguild Promenade because in a two color deck, it's just not great. Myriad Landscape is a land that can also serve as ramp. Simic Signet also provides ramp.

Explosive Vegetation can most likely be replaced by Skyshroud Claim . While it can only get forests, it can get a Breeding Pool and the lands come in untapped.

You definitely need both more removal and more card draw. Rhystic Study has already been suggested, but Harmonize or Rishkar's Expertise would also be great options. In terms of removal, Beast Within, Rapid Hybridization , Naturalize , Baral's Expertise , and Imprisoned in the Moon are budget options with a lot of utility.

Wilderness Reclamation is a new card that acts as a second Seedborn Muse. Also, this might be a deck that can make Mass Manipulation work, since you can generate and store so much mana. Hydroid Krasis is super expensive right now, but if you can manage to get your hands on a copy, it'd be fantastic too.

bpalermo on card: Possibility Storm and Friends ...

3 months ago

So I was playing a 4 player game of Commander with Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and got out Eye of the Storm . I managed to get a Rishkar's Expertise and Baral's Expertise under Eye of the Storm . Then things got weird. I cast a Sunbird's Invocation , Swarm Intelligence , and a Possibility Storm . I then got in for damage with Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , cast a Decimate , and my brain broke a little. As a group we tried to work through exactly what happened, but decided we were in over our heads and gave up. Any rules gurus out there who can walk me through what happens? And my strongest Power card for Rishkar's Expertise was 7.

There's a couple more flicker effects that I don't see in your main or sideboard like Nephalia Smuggler / Displace / Illusionist's Stratagem / Deadeye Navigator and weird ones like Baral's Expertise and Supplant Form . And creatures that counter spells work well with blink like Frilled Mystic / Mystic Snake / Draining Whelk .

There's also Everflowing Chalice / Astral Cornucopia that work with Pir, and Thrummingbird / Skyship Plunderer that are basically magpies (with Toothy) and help the counter themes. Tel-Jilad Stylus / Crystal Shard / Lord of the Unreal helps with protecting Toothy. What do you think about Whirlpool Drake / Whirlpool Rider / Forgotten Creation / Teferi's Puzzle Box as an additional Alhammarret's Archive? Turbulent Dreams is a nice additional Cyclonic Rift. And why do you run no planeswalkers like Kiora, the Crashing Wave / Nissa, Vital Force / Garruk, Primal Hunter (they enter the battlefield and activate with an additional counter with Pir.

What do you think of Empyrial Plate / Thassa, God of the Sea / Words of Wilding / Sphinx's Tutelage / Psychic Corrosion / Key to the City as an extra wincon? I have my own deck (here)[http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-07-18-pirtoothy/?cat=type&sort=cost] and I'm considering if these are suboptimal.

Interesting concept, you have the draw sorted so I would possibly include Glint-Nest Crane to dig through the deck. Baral's Expertise also works a treat with aetherflux reservoir.

Definitely include Unwinding Clock and flash effects to make use of stuff like signets and artifact lands :) oooh and Mirrorworks damn that's awesome once you get it working right.

I would suggest looking at the decklist of Daretti the precon, it has good mono red artifact interaction. I'm building Sen Triplets with artifact interactions so if you like you can check my decklist here Masters of your Mind but it's in Esper haha

Good luck!

saj0219 great! That sounds good to me. I took another look, and I'd also love to trade a Baral's Expertise/Geist-Honored Monk if you have them. Again, no pressure! You have a sweet collection.

Otherwise, I'm good to go on RiP/SP/Q for ShuYun/Aurelia/Xathrid/(GHM)/(BE). Initiate trade whenever you're ready and I should be able to ship it off this weekend. Cheers!
