Bazaar of Baghdad Discussion

demonicgrizzly Correct. You have to first end the WGD loop by animating another creature in someone's yard. But, at that point, you have infinite mana. Then you can cast Breya with infinite mana and sac her to herself repeatedly.
You can cast instants during the WGD loop, tho, if you have one that will help to put a creature in a yard. Stuff like Lightning Bolt, Izzet Charm, Intuition, Entomb, Fire Covenant, Frantic Search or a top-deck tutor + Thought Scour. I had been running slightly more of those cards, but moved away from them. You can also cast bounce spells to end the loop by targeting animate dead or the WGD itself. And if you have Bazaar of Baghdad in play, then that solves that problem.

That all makes sense Rabid_Wombat and probably explains why some of the cards fit in your build and not mine. I'm certainly not interested in Fires or really any haste enablers here. If I'm no winning games by slinging lands, I'm breaking their will to live with Strip Mine, or making a Marit Lage with Dark Depths, one-shotting them with Kessig Wolf Run and Inkmoth Nexus or just beating Valakut, the Molten Pinnacleing them over a couple turns. The deck has plenty of win conditions as is and has very, very few creatures I want to actually attack with.
Bazaar of Baghdad is a good card. That said, I'm not dredging hard enough to want that here. I imagine there's a version of this deck that DOES dredge that hard, but I play The Gitrog Monster to scratch that itch.

Yeah, I run Omnath too...and a lot of other big peeps with haste enablers (Fires of Yavimaya etc..) to give the deck some more wincons besides BoBo slinging lands.
The main reason Grafted Exoskeleton is so awesome is that it does not actually deal damage. Once I caused a lvl 3 Judge to become irate as I explained to him that his Circles of Protection did not work against infect....so just die to BoBo already :D
Another card I can highly recommend is Bazaar of Baghdad - dumping lands like crazy in the 'yard until you hit Life from the Loam wins games. Of course, now the price is stupidly high...fortunately the collector I sold most of my vintage collection too already had a copy so I decided I may as well use it in my BoBo deck!

Smootvicious definitely fine for budgetary restrictions, but this build is operating under budgetless parameters.

What do you think about cloning magus like Magus of the Will, to get a free haste Yawgmoth's Will clone as well as the original one next turn, that example is more mana intensive but what about Magus of the Jar for card draw or Magus of the Coffers for mana ramp? I just feel like being able to clone insane legacy things like Bazaar of Baghdad in the form of Magus of the Bazaar and do it TWICE??? just seems good to me.
Mana Echoes makes most wizards free and their clones a form of mana ramp
Patriarch's Bidding mass wizard reanimate
Gotta have plenty of counters and Smelt effects in case an opponent is wielding a Torpor Orb, cuz otherwise a turn 1 sol ring Torpor orb is a scoop when the whole deck is etb dependant, a lot of people say "cuz my playgroup doesnt run orb"
Well thats lucky, most people at my LGS have control decks that orb is staple in, since it shuts down SO MANY creature decks, i honestly feel bad for playgroups not smart enough to run it in a creature meta, ever since i put orb in my nekusar, I Have been completely unmoved by Animar, Soul of Elements, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth and can easily tutor orb within 3 turns to cause a scoop, and the outcome of orb on this deck would be just as much of a hose
Hopefully your playgroup is bad and unaware of orb, or everyone pkays creature decks and lacks the balls to run it, but if you start seeing it you may want to consider extra protection or a backup plan than just etb abuse, cuz its as easy to hose etb as it is to abuse it :)

So you're telling me using The Abyss, Bazaar of Baghdad, Cabal Coffers and Wheel of Fortune for less than 20$ on a wizard body and being able to COPY the ability is bad? With that logic, if i put Time Walk on a 3 cmc blue wizard on tap, you wouldnt copy said wizard?
I fail to see how copying 300$-600$ legacy powerhouse cards ON A STICK is "bad", but that may be because ive been playing grixis wizards since Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge was printed, and own a 5 year in the making highly competitive budgetless nekusar primer
I also plan on building inalla and mairsal using my extensive 6 years experience playing grixis wizard decks, if you choose to ignore my advice, so be it and good luck with your deck running smoothly.

Fatestitcher is not in the decklist. Is there another more up to date list posted somewhere else? Thanks for the info on the Labman line of play. I may get a Bazaar of Baghdad at Christmas if I can figure out this deck.

thundranos Yes. You can post your fb profile link on my wall and I can friend you so I can tag you. I'm pretty certain it's in the high end alters fb group.
Gosse the Unwinding Clock has always been super important imo, because it allows you to be unpunished for using our Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith and Mana Vault. I've also had very good success using it with Nevinyrral's Disk.
As for budget replacements for the high dollar cards, sadly they are no where near the real deal. Crystal Vein is your best bet replacement, however you might consider Temple of the False God as well, as Guerte runs both in his budget build. You could add Mikokoro, Center of the Sea perhaps? The best game I ever won before I took my turn was an opening hand of Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Alhammarret's Archive and Bazaar of Baghdad. That game was over super quick due to the amount of cards I was drawing every turn.
