Curious Homunculus Discussion

N4kk1 on Izzet FNM Material?

PerishXDimir Curious Homunculus  Flip in meta full of Magma Sprays, Shocks, Fatal Pushes and Grasp of Darkness and so on... Nope, it dies to everything.

In this kind of deck even Kefnet the Mindful could work, you will have all the time some cards in hand as this deck draws a lot of cards.

Some cool options in this list. Mana Severance and Ideas Unbound are pretty neat.

  • Brainstorm is great for setting up Melek.
  • Temporal Fissure probably belongs in main. If you're not running extra turns, bouncing all the lands is a good way to protect your board if you intend to win with Empty the Warrens.
  • If you're setting up to protect an Empty the Warrens board, Rise from the Tides may be a worthwhile include.
  • How do you stave off early aggression? The lack of mana rocks seems to indicate that your earliest viable combo turn is 5-7, which is plenty of time for an aggressive deck to kill you.
  • I agree with the previous commenter that Curious Homunculus  Flip is probably better than Deranged Assistant in this list.
  • They may be too expensive to cast with this design, but other fun payoff options are Sphinx-Bone Wand and Eye of the Storm.

Hobbez9186 on You're a wizard, Baral

I like what you've done here. The only card that I don't love is the Metallic Mimic even though he is an honorary Wizard that can make your other Wizards bigger. The flipped Docent does it better imo. I would recommend adding in another Curious Homunculus  Flip or two for the ramp and his considerable power once easily flipped, and then two or three more counterspells. Maybe the Mimic does more than it appears, but the synergy and control of having more counters to pair with Baral seems better, especially since it helps you draw through your deck faster. Once you get a Docent online it's pretty much wrapped up anyway. The only card idea that I have is something like Slip Through Space or some other cantrip that can help draw and edge in damage while triggering Prowess and creating more Wizards on your turn. That may not be necessary at all, but it may be nice to have an unlockable dude against another deck with flyers.

Just some initial thoughts, like I said I like what you've got here. Good luck to you :)

Also if you look at my deck you will notice I run Baral, Chief of Compliance and Curious Homunculus  Flip to ramp up the game and chump block.

ACDAMAN on It's Miller Time (Vol. 4)

I'd try using one or two Curious Homunculus  Flip for the "easy" 3/4 and the tiny bit of ramp if you need it. Also, Doomfall is bad in my opinion in this deck, I'd replace it with 2 more Never. I also wouldn't use Dispossess, as artifact decks aren't very strong right now (Other than monument but you can easily mill those out)

Remove Crash Through, Curious Homunculus  Flip reasons: you already have 8 trample/unblockable cards, dont need 12.

Also you dont need homonculus for spells, you could include 2 more lands by playing a full set of Ramunap Ruins removing evolving wilds(or 1 evo+mountain) and homonculus . those also act as finisher in a pinch.

For Crash Through you could play 4 burn spells to clear way/go for head like Hungry Flames , Incendiary Flow

While it is slightly less effiecient in the beginning of the game, you might actually prefer Curious Homunculus  Flip to baral. You only have 2 counterspells unless I missed something, so you would probably get more value out of post flip Voracious Reader  Flip. It usually can flip fairly quickly in my experience.

Think Twice could be a nice way to keep the spells coming, and Goblin Electromancer and Curious Homunculus  Flip would make a lot of them cheaper to cast. Brainstorm, Blue Sun's Zenith Treasure Cruise offer more cheap card draw. Izzet Signet and Mind Stone could be good for ramp and for fixing, in the first case. Young Pyromancer, Docent of Perfection  Flip, and Talrand, Sky Summoner could be nice to pump out bodies. Archaeomancer offers a second Mnemonic Wall, not that I want to encourage any more of that. Rapid Hybridization, Curse of the Swine, Grapeshot, and Reality Shift offer some real cheap removal. Elixir of Immortality could help prevent self-mill. Also for cheap duals there are Izzet Boilerworks, Izzet Guildgate, and Highland Lake. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse offer cheap fetching, and Lonely Sandbar and Forgotten Cave might work well too.

With all the cancels Baral might be decent as well, though he's a touch pricey. Come to think of it, Baral and Kari Zev's expertise cards could also help cast two spells in one turn.

Just my thoughts; I look forward to playing against it.
