I had a fun Kiora, the Crashing Wave deck. My win conditions were to either waste my opponents time until I swing lethal with a flying leviathan or I had splashed red for the amazing card Crater's Claws which combos with Kruphix for an unlimited mana dump.

You'll be able to make a fun deck with this. It might not win a lot but it will run well.

Alternate idea, Kiora, Master of the Depths with Willbreaker. Use these with Battlefield Thaumaturge and cards like Gridlock and Thrive to shut down your opponents creature base by targeting them with your cheap spells. However this relies on playing against creature decks and in a modern set that's not terribly likely.

Any costs that can be paid during casting can be reduced, including buyback, kicker, and the like.

To cast Clockspinning with-

  • Sapphire Medallion on the field will cost normally, or with buyback.
  • Battlefield Thaumaturge on the field will only be reduced to IF a creature has a counter on it and you target THAT creature and its counter.
  • both Sapphire Medallion and Battlefield Thaumaturge on the field, targeting a creature with a counter, will cost .

  • Other than that, you can't lower it anymore with Battlefield Thaumaturge because Clockspinning only targets one permanent.

    This actually belongs in Rules Q&A, but what specifically are you targeting with Clockspinning? This wiuld determine if you can use Battlefield Thaumaturge or not?

    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.

    (Sorry for my poor english)
