Brainspoil Discussion

PooperDix: Normally Unearth would be the option, but here Raise Dead's purpose is to bring back Midnight Scavengers, which does fall outside of Unearth's conditions. I only have four of Scavengers, so once I get one, it might be the only one I see during the game. Thus Raise Dead, which can bring it back.

Shred Memory, on the other hand is an interesting proposition that I'll keep in mind. I could see adding one or two Shred Memorys and one or two Brainspoils. They could help tutor up the combo... hmm. Let me see if I have any....

And lastly... "playlets?" lol, do you mean Playtest? If you do, I have, if not, then, huh? =)

I have updated the deck a bit, but the description has yet to follow.

I have put Baleful Strix in for more flicker shenanigans.

Lim-Dul's Vault, Brainspoil and Fabricate for more tutors.

Vodalian Illusionist for another phasing enabler.

I can see that Brainspoil might not be a suit. I wanted to add this mainly because it's the 3rd common transmute spell that could fit somehow if your curve was different.

Good luck building!

Thanks for the response boxes_o_moxes

Dimir House Guard and Shred Memory seem to have a place in the deck, but I don't think Brainspoil would fit as the casting cost is too high for the Transmute ).

I would find a spot for:

Dimir House Guard and

Shred Memory

And you can look into Brainspoil. If you are playing black these cards are for sure needing to be looked into.

These cards can work for you either way. As the spells themselves or tutor for key cards or cards to get you out of a pickle. I use them in my B/W Voracious Hatchling Pauper EDH.

What's Brainspoil in there for? There's no transmute targets in the deck apart from Sever Soul and it's not really playable either.

With paradox engine and ad nauseum,is it worth looking at Brainspoil ?
