Brainspoil Discussion

MoGoose831 and Sjorpha

Thanks for your feedback!

Brainspoil and Dimir Machinations had been in a prior version of this deck, and were purged alongside most other traditional tutors--originally, more tutors were used, but they were too inefficient to justify the card slot. In retrospect, this was a tad unfair to the two above cards, given their three mana tutoring effects and potential for other uses in a pinch. I am going to give both another shot. Azusa, Lost but Seeking is out--in theory, her land ability works well with the number of fetch lands in this deck, but the chances of drawing either Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator is low, and neither is worth wasting a tutor on. Jace, Unraveler of Secrets is also out--his mana cost is simply too high.

Liliana Vess is a tad slow for my taste. Effectively, she is a 5 mana tutor that does not give me the option of casting the card I need in the same turn as the tutor.

I love goofy decks and applaud you for keeping the theme of Battle of Witts

Have you felt the need for more tutors? Brainspoil maybe?

Xenograft is another version of arcane adaption and conspiracy. If you are having trouble getting your main enchantments out Perplex transmutes for arcane adaption and Brainspoil transmutes for xenograft or conspiracy. Combustible Gearhulk and the other Titans are also good to flicker. Gray Merchant of Asphodel can gain you some life in a pinch or close out a game. Flameshadow Conjuring is like another Inalla except it requires red mana.

Use Brainspoil or Diabolic Tutor to draw the Stone more often.

Consider Pandemonium and Bloodbond March if you decide to go into other colors.

I dont know what i should think about Brainspoil for me this card is a bit weak. for a kill card to expensive and as a card only to search 6 other cards not that good.The deck is really expensive in mana, how are your games against aggro and early decks?

Hi I'm brewing around Shared Fate as well.

I've been looking at cards like Set Adrift to remove fate after the libraries have been emptied for a mill win, or things like Bribery & Mimeofacture that can't be used against me.

Terminus & Condemn are also good removal options so that your opponent's deck has plenty of creatures left in it to kill them with.

Idyllic Tutor can be used by the opponent to fetch something like Shrieking Affliction or Purphoros, God of the Forge. If you're running black Brainspoil is the better option.

Let me know what you discover! Happy brewing!

Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice scale up with Atraxa out.

The 'transmute' tutors are great for budget builds. Dimir House Guard, Shred Memory, Brainspoil. The fact they can't be countered (without Stifle effect) comes into play more often than you'd think.
