Firebones675 on Eternal Displaceness (finite combo flicker)

2 weeks ago

I'd replace atleast 1 of the Battlefield Thaumaturge with Baral, Chief of Compliance. The hexproof line is going to be irrelevant as the only spells that would target it just end up flickering it which effectively does the same thing and baral might get some value with mystic snake.

It costs a lot of mana but Deadeye Navigator with mystic snake is pretty disgusting. With the Peregrine Drake in your maybe board deadeye also creates infinite mana. Infinite mana + deadeye+ Mulldrifter allows you to draw infinite cards (by exiling dead eye then when it reenters pair it with muldrifter). with your entire library in your hand, and infinite mana, and the snake/deadeye combo i'd imagine it would be pretty hard to lose.

Mistmeadow Witch is like a weird deadeye. It's cheaper to play but costs more mana to activate. On the plus side you can use it to take your opponents creatures out of combat but you can't go infinite when you flicker your own stuff as they return at end of turn.

Battlefield Thaumaturge can make can make your curse and descent cost practically nothing. Definitely worth running a couple.

Hi, nice deck!! +1 of course. I love flicker's decks. Have you considered Eerie Interlude? You can target more than 2 creatures (it's a garantee against wipes). And you could cast it paying less mana using Battlefield Thaumaturge. A good combo is casting Eerie Interlude targeting Eternal Witness, and when Eternal Witness come back at the end of the turn, you can pick Eerie Interlude from the graveyard.

It seems that you've problems against very fasts decks, like elves or mono red. I would like to see in this deck Wall of Omens, you can flicker it to draw cards and also it's a good blocker in turn 2.

Finally when you're able to do it, I would buy a playset of Path to Exile. They're an investement.

HurricaneZach on Wrath of the Isochron

Isochron Scepter is one of my favorite cards and I wish it was more competitive. I like this list and the ideas here. In the interest of thinning the deck down a bit, it seems to me that you are very heavy on potential win-cons and that would be the easiest thing to take out without affecting the usefulness of the Isochron Scepter. I would do something like:

-1 Dack Fayden-1 Tamiyo, the Moon Sage-2 Pyromancer Ascension-2 March of the Machines-2 Archmage Ascension-2 Metallurgic Summonings-1 Battlefield Thaumaturge-2 Laboratory Maniac-2 Prototype Portal+2 Ral Zarek

I like Ral Zarek because he seems the most psynergetic and his ultimate can easily win you the game with a Silence on an Isochron Scepter. If you have any questions about the reasoning behind any of this let me know. Good luck with this!

I have a list built around Isochron Scepter also. Check it out and let me know what you think. +1 for great minds!

miampizza on Azami, Lady of Hogwarts

BodhiQL Thanks for your feedback.

Nykthos is a card I considered for a while but I sold my last copy a few months ago so it might take a bit until I can try it here (I do plan on trying it though).

My deck is not really geared to hugely benefit from an infinite mana combo to be honest. I also don't feel like it's a necessary addition.

I have 2 cards like Spellbook, and I don't mind discarding a land here or there, when I have a mana rock out, or an instant if I have recursion coming soon

Battlefield Thaumaturge would only really bring value with a huge Curse of the Swine, so it's use is too narrow for this deck.

Clever Impersonator I have Phyrexian Metamorph already.

There is this Baral guy that I didn't know was coming out. I somehow skipped this guy, but he will be a definite addition. Stasis is good. I forgot about that card. I'll check if I can't slide it in somewhere.

BodhiQL on Azami, Lady of Hogwarts

This looks pretty good. As an Azami player myself, I saw the list and came to check it out. Here is my list. It is based on the paper copy of the deck, which I'm still working on, and some good cards like Snapcaster Mage and Glen Elendra Archmage have not yet been acquired. For recommendations, I have a few that you may want to try out. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will be your favorite land immediately. Palinchron combos with Nykthos and High Tide for infinite mana. Battlefield Thaumaturge lets you cast Curse of the Swine, or any X spell that targets creatures, for two blue mana. Clever Impersonator can copy your Caged Sun, and Isochron Scepter with an imprinted High Tide can make lots of mana. Consecrated Sphinx is just value, and goes well with the +1 on Jace Beleren. You may want cards like Spellbook to keep your cards. Also, Mindslaver+Academy Ruins or Master of Waves can be an alternate wincon, especially when paired with Caged Sun. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage is also really good. She can help you win with her -2 if you have Lab Maniac in play and you just need to draw a few more cards. If you can get her ultimate, you basically win. I play Stasis, because I hate people. This can go good with Tamiyo because she can tap down a land one of your opponents plays, causing them to not build up more stuff while everybody is under Stasis. When Aether Revolt comes you, make sure you get a Baral, Chief of Compliance. If you don't know what he does, look it up. It's really good in Azami in the early game, which is when we are weak, before we can get cards in hand and mana to play things.

CynicalDog on Talrand and His Minions of Flying Doom

2 months ago

First of all, great deck! I like how you didn't just stick it full of counters because Talrand. Second, you shouldn't have to pay full price for all of your spells. Sapphire Medallion is a nice one to have for $2-$4, and Battlefield Thaumaturge could be nice for snaps even though you don't really want creatures. Braingeyser might be a good mid- to late-game card to keep those counters coming in, although you do have plenty of scrying. If you really wanted to be nasty, you could try using Stasis... or maybe not. Guile does some good stuff, and if you counter your own counter with Guile you've got an infinite casting combo... giving you infinite 2/2 flyers with Talrand. Stick a Soulblade Djinn in there and you've got infinite infinity/infinity flyers. Boom.
