Clockspinning Discussion

Hi there, concerning the "time manipulation" ( Clockspinning and the like) you've already got everything in here as far as I know. One thing I find myself always happy with is the two rare suspend creatures from Planar Chaos, Detritivore and Aeon Chronicler , since they both offer a pretty usefull effect while they're ticking down in exile. Also Deep-Sea Kraken will enter the battlefield in no time when suspended with Jhoira, although maybe a bit underwhelming when compared against other stuff. I like to keep it in my build to take care of opposing planeswalkers though. You can check it out if you like to. Cheers! When Worlds Collide (EDH)

SynergyBuild on Tezzeret/Thoughtcast Affinity

Mind if I join you on the tier list? I've considered making one.

So far the best variant has been:

Saheeli Storm

Oathbreaker SynergyBuild


The other best lists I have seen in the format are:

Narset, Parter of Veils / Timetwister (with some variants running Windfall instead)

Jace, Wielder of Mysteries / Paradigm Shift

Tezzeret the Seeker / Thoughtcast (Use Tezzeret to fetch Aetherflux Reservoir , but there are some variants that use Clockspinning with it and fetch Paradox Engine , or variants of The Chain Veil combo, idk.)

Past that, a tier 2 would be:

Aminatou, the Fateshifter / Demonic Tutor / Mystical Tutor / Vampiric Tutor (hard permission control)

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast / Divergent Transformations (Kiki+Conscripts in deck with no other creatures, so you flip the tokens into the combo.)

WhattheDeck Thanks for the suggestions and compliment! I have been thinking about removing a wipe but I really need to get either Mystic Speculation and/or Clockspinning into the deck. They are more reusable spells that I feel are needed to make this deck more consistent. I have also ordered a Vanish into Memory for testing purposes.

I do really like Peer Through Depths though as you are likely to hit a spell. Although, it would be awful to whiff.

Clockspinning works nice in your deck? I really like the idea. (Y)

Killzun Thanks for the comments. I do like Unsubstantiate but I don't think it fits well with my deck. I think it takes up the slot of a spell that I want in the deck. This does absolutely work though. As for Rise from the Tides , I think that it suffers from the problem of not doing anything if there aren't spells in the GY. I personally play with folks who exile and shuffle GY's into libraries and this card will suffer from that. However, if you aren't seeing those things happening in your playgroup this card is great.

Lord_Europa thanks for the compliment! Guile is a great card. Since I do play some counterspell's it will absolutely be a bomb if it were out.

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid I took a look at your deck. Looks great. I think Noyan Dar can be built loads of ways that will work. Mine is absolutely not the end all be all. I just know that it does well and will win out of nowhere. I think the combo card you're looking for is Clockspinning . This absolutely does what you want. I have not play tested it but I know that Ender666666 has based on his deck They see me Roilin', I'm Shapin'....

Ender666666 I have not played it but my buddy does. So are you essentially just exiling one of your animated lands with Vanish into Memory to draw cards and then not discard lands since it just comes back as a land?

I'm a real fan of Clockspinning as it's a reusable was to spam tokens onto our lands, or remove essential tokens from threats.

Sphinx's Revelation , although colour intensive, has done me plenty of good. I wouldn't call it essential tech, like View from Above , but it's strong.

I really like my Noyan Dar deck and I see ours are really different. I really liek your list but I have a few questions about how some cards work out in your build. I have pondered about a few of them for a while but I figure you might have a bit of experience with them.

What do you think of Clockspinning ? I feel like I'm missing out as this is a spell I could cast multiple times.

Is Sphinx's Revelation worth playing? I feel like it is color intensive and expensive. Is the life gain worth it? Just curious.

+1 from me. Great deck.

I have an Arixmethes deck of my own ( Arixmethes: Early to Bed, Early to Rise ), which is also focused on ramp and counterspells. I thought I'd crammed all the two-mana ramp spells in the game into the deck, but how could I have forgotten about Into the North ? Thanks for the heads-up.

By the way, pro-tip: Clockspinning is a must for any Arixmethes deck. It removes two slumber counters for every time you cast it, and it has some side uses with +1/+1 counters and planeswalkers.
