Contingency Plan Discussion

Contingency Plan Weaver of Lightning Thermo-Alchemist just so it is easier for me to see.

I know this card is unliked, but in your Deck I think Contingency Plan could be good.

Definitely interesting cards to toy around with. I wrote them off as slow durdle cards that didn't contribute enough to the gameplan when I was first building the deck, but looking at the deck they could do a bit more. Contingency Plan is typically card disadvantage until you realize how many cards have flashback/aftermath in addition to being a very obvious enabler for early Cryptic Serpents and Voracious Reader  Flips. The only remaining problem with it is that oftentimes I'd rather be playing another one of my 2 drops in order to get a more immediate benefit. Pieces of the Puzzle looks good in that it almost guarantees I draw 2 nonland cards and then throw the rest into the grave for fuel, but if you are taking spells, you will likely only ever throw 1 spell into the grave with it (assuming you hit the required spells to draw). Thanks for the input!

thank you for the suggestion, but I've consider going the energy route with even Dynavolt Tower tower, i've decided to forget the energy route and go with cheaper spells, Take Inventory works well with how Contingency Plan works with enigma drake.

A fun deck, maybe Contingency Plan or Peer Through Depths instead of Index.

Bakemoono I agree with ACDAMAN in that you should run some counterspells. Counterspells work well with Baral, Chief of Compliance in a discard madness deck, enables madness and gives you some consistent draw power. I would replace Fling with Alms of the Vein, fling is better suited in a deck with beefy creatures or creatures you pump up like Electrostatic Pummeler, etc. Replace Contingency Plan and Take Inventory with Disallow, or Spell Shrivel and Negate. Swap out 2 copies of Curious Homunculus  Flip and Enigma Drake for a full playset of Baral, Chief of Compliance. Hope this helps.

If I were you, I would sideboard any/all your Sphinxes. Control decks only need a couple of win conditions, and Thing/Cryptic provide those. Final Word is awesome in mirror/control matchups, but will be not-so-useful outside those contexts. Maybe card draw like Anticipate or filtering like Contingency Plan would help you find those win conditions faster instead.

Cool deck! Keep up the good work!
