Hi WuzzupPeeps!

Kumena's Awakening is actually really interesting. I had overlooked that card when going through new Ixalan stuff. I have been thinking about cutting my Hondens, and Kumena's Awakening is probably better than Honden of Seeing Winds since it's rare to have both in play. Plus I bet it looks sweet in foil :) I'm going to check this out, thanks for the suggestion.

Unwind doesn't really appeal to me I think. I am pretty lean with my countermagic by choice, so I want the ones I play to be top notch. Right now Swan Song is my only counter that can't hit all spells, and I'm not thinking I want to play a second one.

treasure map seems like it requires a decent amount of setup and not much payoff, especially since I don't have other ways to generate Treasure tokens.

Emeria Shepherd is pretty interesting to think about. My deck does have a lot of ways to get permanents into the gy (since nothing exiles, and I have Monastery Siege, Compulsion, etc. But, I'm wondering if the effect is worth it if I'm not often playing Plains - I only have 4 Basic Plains + Duals. I notice your list has Emeria Shepherd and more Basic Plains to support it, plus off color fetches and stuff like Terrain Generator - how often do you find yourself getting the Plains version of the trigger?

Hi man, I've seen your post on reddit and, with that budget, I think you need some rocks like Sol Ring, Azorius Signet Fellwar Stone Chromatic Lantern Fieldmist Borderpost instead of 5 lands. Still for the land part Land Tax will give you an easy land drod and Compulsion instead of Gift of Estates and Careful Consideration. I dont know if you avoided it intentionally but with Strionic Resonator you can combo off with Brago, King Eternal. Still a good list and +1 for me!

For commander I would personally recommend Ruhan of the Fomori. A 7/7 for and could very much benefit from leading an Equipment deck if nothing else.

As for suggestions regarding looting type effects I dug up Compulsion, Burning Inquiry, Desperate Ravings, Merfolk Looter, Urza’s Tome, and Customs Depot to name a few off the top of my noodle. I must say that alongside these effects Library of Leng is an all-star.

Hope this helped, even if it's slighlty

What do you think of an all sacrificing permanent like Claws of Gix? I think it would fit. I also thought about Hatching Plans or Compulsion for a while.

Two sets of cards for you. This first set is exactly what you asked for:

Azure Mage, Diviner's Wand, Prophet of Distortion, Sphinx of Magosi, Treasure Trove

This set is almost what you asked for and can work depending on what exactly you are doing:

Book of Rass, Carnage Altar, Compulsion, Mesmeric Trance, Mental Discipline, Skyscribing

Looks like a fun build! I have a similar deck, and here's some things I would suggest adding:

Dimir Infiltrator/Drift of Phantasms/Dimir House Guard: These guys can all be discarded in order to get important cards to your game plan. I notice you have a lot of spells at CMC's 2, 3, and 4, so they should be a great fit!

Compulsion: You can now cycle any of your cards!

Cast Out: Cycles, and is a versatile removal spell.

Tortured Existence: All you need is one creature in your graveyard and one creature in your hand to get an insane amount of discard triggers with this card. It's a lot of fun!

Phyrexian Reclamation: This can get back a good creature, or at the very least allow you to cycle something again in a pinch.

Spirit Cairn: Another good token maker on discard in case you feel you need more benefits when you do cycle.

I've suggested 8 cards to add. If I was going to suggest as many to cut, here's what I would say:

Unburden: One player having to discard two is not very helpful in a multiplayer game. This will mostly just make one person your enemy.

Lurching Rotbeast/Sanctum Plowbeast/Winged Shepherd/Djeru's Renunciation: These will mostly end up being part of the deck simply because you can cycle them, which is a good sign that there are better options.

Absorb Vis: Same problem as Unburden. If you want to make one opponent your enemy, great. Otherwise, it exists because you can cycle it.

New Perspectives: When cycling, you typically do not end up ahead on cards. This means that you will rarely end up at max hand size, so this is an expensive draw spell.

Plea for Guidance: You have 4 enchantments, 3 of which your commander can go get you. It is not very helpful here.

Regardless of what you end up doing, this looks like a fun deck. Good luck!

I just realized that Phyrexian Dreadnought and Force of Savagery would work quite well in a deck like this. Compulsion is also worth worth playing around with. Very nice deck, though. You got a +1 for the name alone, lol,

Pownu on card draw enchantment

6 months ago

I've been looking for an enchantment that I can pay an amount of colorless mana to draw a card or loot or something of the sort. I am playing Kruphix (simic), so its not the price, its the ability to draw when i want to that i need. The closest I've found is Compulsion. this uses a blue, which limits how many times i can use it. Does anyone know of any that cost only colorless to activate?
