Contingency Plan Discussion

If you want to dig through your library fast as well as get some cards in the graveyard, Contingency Plan from Eldritch Moon has a ton of synergy with your deck. Heck, it may be even better than Thought Scour because it gives you the flexibility to choose what you mill as well as how much you mill. Keeps you from throwing away your finishers.

The only issue I have with Contingency Plan is that it isn't a creature. Reducing my creature count limits my ability to use emerge and increases the likelihood of the Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip or Foul Emissary abilities failing to draw. In most cases Reckless Scholar will only stay on the field for one or two turns before being sac'd for emerge.

Pulling out Emrakul is more of a desperation move than the goal of the deck, so I don't need to be dumping cards en masse into the graveyard.

Dont know if you need it but you could use Contingency Plan for more self mill.

Messing around with a deck similar to this. The reanimation package is very strong in standard right now. Incoming God-Pharaoh's Gift decks....

I've been playing around with Embalmer's Tools to make Haunted Dead and Stitchwing Skaab 1 cheaper. The extra mill effect is also nice for either your opponent or yourself.

Perpetual Timepiece is a sweet way to get your stuff back from the graveyard.

I like Grapple with the Past but have you considered running Contingency Plan? Reorder and pitching any amount of cards seems nice. I also see people playing Strategic Planning, personally not sure how I feel about it.

Also, I have a few copies of Elder Deep-Fiend thrown in. Flash on opponents turn, sac The Scarab God then get him back into your had seems sweet. Not sure if Distended Mindbender has a home in this deck.

Have you considered Contingency Plan? I play a deck very similar to this one. I am now considering Cryptic Serpent for mine now.

Sweet deck idea, +1 for sure. I have been thinking about a deck somewhat like this. I was running a weird Bant embalm deck and after playing around with it, felt like it was too slow.

Perhaps you can get more value from your Stitchwing Skaab and Haunted Dead if you played with Embalmer's Tools a single mana for an activated ability seems pretty nice and you can target yourself with the second effect. Also, it makes Champion of Wits that much cheaper on the externalize plan, draw four/discard two (yikes good).

I know Contingency Plan is rotating out soon but i'm not sure which is better. Strategic Planning gives you the card and pitches two but Contingency Plan reorders your library and fills up your graveyard more effectively, something to consider.

Not sure where Grapple with the Past sits in this deck, I like that it is an instant graveyard filler/land filter but not sure if you would be dipping into too much green at that point.

Overall, seems pretty great. Good work!
