Curator of Mysteries Discussion

ef In 28/30 playtests, I was able to cast at least one, and with 17/30 games I was able to cast two. It is also important to recognize that Curator of Mysteries and Striped Riverwinder hit harder than most of the more common living end creatures. Tolaria West is also a great tutor

If i had to guess he misses the amount of creatures run in traditional jund living end lists, which allowed fast combo, and near continual cycling.
You could add some, like Faerie Macabre instead of Leyline of the Void, or run some Nimble Obstructionist as stifles - maybe even take a look at evoke stuff like Mulldrifter
All in all the deck doesn't need to be as dense as jund lists, because it pack very good disruption spells - many of which becomes free with resolved As Foretold, and when Curator of Mysteries is on the field, cycling's Cerulean Wisps effect become Opt (and with 2 on the field, Serum Visions)

Yeah, that's the thing about including Cycling cards: unless you're going to actually cast the card at least 50% of the time or you have a bunch if discard synergies to trigger, all it does is slow you down. If you're never going to cast Riverwinder, then Hieroglyphic Illumination or even Curator of Mysteries would be strictly better since you might draw two cards off the former sometimes or get an efficient flyer off the second, if that's what you need.

Yeah, I like your deck idea, but I guess it's too slow. In order to achieve very good improvements, it will go out of the budget!
First I would improve your Land Base: 4x Fetid Pools, 4x Drowned Catacomb and you should think about 2x Search for Azcanta Flip, because the card quality and graveyard mill is really nice for your deck idea.
Wish you success. :)

I really like the deck, but I'm questioning the inclusions of Shapesharer and Curator of Mysteries. I think it would be better to build on the cloning with things like Clone and Vizier of Many Faces. Shapesharer can become a copy of a sphinx, sure, but it won't get a trigger from Unesh when it does.
Arcane Adaptation/Xenograft could also be a gateway to running powerful non-Sphinx creatures and still getting the Unesh trigger. Things like Reef Worm would really synergize with that, because you'd get four triggers out of one card.

If that is the case then Curator of Mysteries might be a more worthwhile card. It doesn't have flash but can be cycled when you are in the early game looking for mana. It also is a much larger body that is harder to handle.
Or if you want a better answer vs control match ups then I would suggest Glyph Keeper. Another cash friendly option that has a good size and can be embalmed in the late game if it found its way into your grave.
Also if you prefer a faster deck then I suggest taking out the Skysovereign, Consul Flagship and go for Aethersphere Harvester. And to further support this you would want to use more Siren Stormtamer and add Storm Fleet Aerialist or Hope of Ghirapur.
