Burning Inquiry Discussion

Yeah

White gets draw from some incidental spells like Wall of Omens , from specific requirements, like Aura/Enchantment, Equipment/Artifacts, Sram, Senior Edificer , Puresteel Paladin , Mesa Enchantress , Kor Spiritdancer , Dawn of Hope , but also has just plain hate, like Spirit of the Labyrinth and Alms Collector .

Blue obviously has just plain card draw.

Black pays life for cards Underworld Connections , Blood Scrivener , Necropotence , Phyrexian Arena , Sign in Blood , Live Fast , Read the Bones , or Cruel Bargain . You can also Sacrifice Creatures for Cards.

Red gets cards for limited time, Experimental Frenzy , or it comes with Discard Wheel of Fortune Faithless Looting , or Burning Inquiry .

Green is already flush with cards similar to yours, Primordial Sage , Soul of the Harvest , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for example.

Personally I love Burning Inquiry , pus it may disrupt your opponets hand (or help them ...) so I am all for it. Or perhaps a combination of that Desperate Ravings

Hello again, TheBrewerZ! That is an option, or we could even go with Burning Inquiry if we really want to risk it!

@heckproof:

It's not terrible in the deck, but the issue I have with Mishra's Bauble is that it's usually a do-nothing card. In an opening hand, it's not terrible if you aren't using any looting spells turn 1. If you are using Faithless Looting or Burning Inquiry however, the card is just discard fodder. As the game gets longer, you want to see the card less and less, as the one-turn delay on the cantrip really hurts for a fast, sorcery-speed deck, and it basically becomes a worse Street Wraith.

I have noticed this in Abzan Traverse too, where, a lot of the times, Bauble just doesn't feel great outside of filling the graveyard early on. That's why some of the Abzan Traverse lists run Walking Ballista as an artifact card too. The reason it's used in Abzan Traverse is because they have a hard time filling their graveyard early on for Grim Flayer .

This deck circumvents that by running Street Wraith and Looting spells to fill up the graveyard early on; you don't generally need Mishra's Bauble to fill up the grave early, and you don't need it late. I think it's usable (it's a 0 mana artifact cyler), but generally unnecessary.

Thrun, the Last Troll has lost a lot of luster against UW in my opinion. Terminus and Settle the Wreckage are both clean ways to get around Hexproof and regenerate, it feels so good to resolve against Cryptic Command mana, but he doesn't seal the opponent's fate on the spot anymore.

I prefer Obstinate Baloth as another generic threat against aggro decks, black midrange decks and Burning Inquiry decks. It also still supplements the post board Tireless Tracker midrange plan.

A more janky suggestion is if you're considering Jace, the Mind Sculptor to tuck your pod targets back in the deck, Riverwise Augur is much lower power level, but it is poddable. I don't know how often this would come up, I would personally say either aren't worth it.

From what you've said, I'll tailor this suggestion to the offensive rather than defensive, though why not have a little of both? What I'd like to suggest as a first change is replacing Ornithopter with Vault Skirge . The Skirge can be played for 1 mana and is a superior creature to the thopter, mostly thanks to lifelink, which is of-course a slightly defensive ability... Next is a choice of two, I add 4x of either Scrapheap Scrounger or Scrap Trawler , to make the space -2x Apostle's Blessing and -2x Tezzeret's Touch. Why one of the two scrappers? Simply put recursion, against your deck I'd side in artifact hate, not graveyard hate, one of these cards gives you a different angle of play. The last thought I had is two cards which no-one plays, but perhaps your deck could leverage Glaze Fiend and Painsmith , they aren't cards I'd run 4x, maybe as 2x? Or one card that does see play Inkmoth Nexus ...

I fully understand the desire to do something a little different, I started with a very of-the-shelf Hollow One deck, I've been playing on and off for 20 years so I already had Faithless Looting , Burning Inquiry and Goblin Lore , sitting in a box. Fast forward to now, the deck I'm playing is very different to the stock Hollow One, it has Adorned Pouncer and Soulflayer in it for starters. Here's the thing though, it's still essentially a red aggro deck, the core enablers are still all present, just my payoffs are different.

Why the tale above? You have marked this deck as a control deck and literally called it You just got Noped! which is evocative of Counterspell . This led me down the path of providing control based suggestions, but that isn't really what your looking for. Stall, bounce and counter is what control decks generally do, I'm not against thinking outside the box, but by definition when looking at someone else's deck list, without a description detailing their goals, suggestions tend to be made based on known factors. I hope my opening comment has introduced you to at least a couple of cards you weren't aware of or hadn't considered, good luck with your brew.
