Cloudius on We Love Freebies! *Primer*

PrideGreen You're right about Worn Powerstone. ETB tapped is its Achilles heel and slows down the tempo of the deck, when we're always striving to cast Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign asap.

To be honest, I've never drawn Condescend in the games I've played. On paper, marrying Counterspell and Scry is awesome and warrants a slot in the deck. There are much stronger "hard counters" out there for sure, so am taking a compromise here to gain the Scry ability. Will probably test it further before deciding whether to axe it.

So for now, I'd try out Preordain over Worn Powerstone. I've ordered an Insidious Dreams and that'll go in once I received it. Then its headache all over again to decide which card to cut. LOL

I always appreciate it when folks take time to go through my Primer, understand the concept and ideas behind the deck, before making suggestions and/or cuts. So kudos to you for doing so! Thanks once again.

Glad my suggestions are helpful!

I feel like Worn Powerstone is a weak link in your deck since you wanna be as fast as possible, you even said that it isn't as good as the others (I always stand by cantrips over mana rocks personally). Also you could consider removing Condescend for more focused cantriping, but if its for the counterspell I would vote against cutting the card (its not the best counterspell though).

Thought Vessel over vensers journal.

Cast Through Time

Mizzix's Mastery

Guttersnipe possibly.

Sphinx-Bone Wand is a great win-con.

Condescend, Discombobulate because have blue, will counter

Swarm Intelligence

Gitaxian Probe

Bloodwater Entity because putting stuff on top is clutch

Epic Experiment

Baral, Chief of Compliance

Aetherflux Reservoir

Riverwise Augur, Conch Horn getting stuff from hand to top is a must

Sol Ring auto include

Goblinslide, Prodigal Pyromancer

Rapid Hybridization, Pongify blue removal

Riddle of Lightning, Fated Conflagration scry removal

Bosium Strip weird tech, basically gives flashback to all spells in a turn

Telling Time instant speed, gets something in hand, and on top

Preordain because

Mystic Speculation

Spy Network

potential further topdeck manipuation if you wanted, in the form of Portent, Index, Trickery Charm.

Yea my hand go very fast, I'll put 2x Bedlam Reveler. I also removed 1xShock, 1xLightning Strike, 1xSpell Pierce and 1x Condescend and I've put some Stubborn Denial. SeekerofSecrets hey I'm very grateful to you for helping me.

yeah possibly a 3-3 split, it's not really a big deal that it comes down a turn later but the extra damage is vital for removal, I would also probably remove Lightning Strike and maybe Condescend for 2x Bedlam Reveler. your going to empty your hand very fast so he's nice to reload.

I would also consider a 2-2 split of Spell Pierce and Stubborn Denial, you should have no problem turning on ferocious

Thank for you that insightful comment PookandPie. I think doomsday is totally optimal if you want to win a game of EDH, but I'm a bit hesitant to constuct a deck focused around combo-ing off for an extended period of time with no interaction when just playing with my friends.

Swan Song over Condescend seems like an upgrade, I hadn't thought about SS for a bit.

Seal of Cleansing is the most flexible card in the deck, I might change to to Cursed Totem. Right now though it helps me survive games where other players have sol rings and mana crypts out. Eventually I'll be faster but until I can acquire a crypt I need more solutions on turn 1 and 2 to fast mana. I might try Fragmentize in this spot too.

I'm not a huge fan of Static Orb because it doesn't totally immobilize anything in particular. You're right that I'm weak to mana dorks though, I think cursed totem will be a definate include in the future if my friends start playing more mana dorks (they will).
