Dack Fayden Discussion

Here are some suggestions: Talent of the Telepath lets you use the opponents removal (like if you need exile or enchantment removal), generate value, or it can be an emergency cultivate or something against a green player. Also its cheap. Memory Plunder is in a similar vein. Better when you need a specific spell, but it doesn't mill potential combo pieces, etc. Vandalblast is a great one sided artifact removal, and kess can cast it twice. Nightscape Familiar is a great cost reducer I don't see. Dack Fayden should be in your deck. At the minimun it's often ramp (can steal their mana rocks) or looting for what you need. At most it steals their combos. Toxic Deluge is one of the best board wipes in commander.Sire of Stagnation is great draw that makes opponents hesitant to play lands and can exile key cards. Sphinx of the Final Word this might only perform well in a certain meta, but worth considering. Imprisoned in the Moon You can't repeat this but its worth it. Shut down their commanders. Reliquary Tower Pretty self explanatory in edhDesolate Lighthouse is a great looting tool when you want itDemonic Consultation instant wins with Laboratory Maniac.

These next two are probably too expensive right now, but I am mentioning them because they are being reprinted in Iconic Masters which comes out in November so they're price will go down. Consecrated Sphinx great drawKokusho, the Evening Star usually kills all opponents with kicked Rite of Replication

Well first for the good news. You got most of the expensive cards out of the way, so that's good. Te thing is that this is both an Ad Nauseam deck and not an Ad Nauseam deck and its not a storm deck in its current state. So if you wanted to lean into both Ad Nauseam and storm (which I think you should) You would need to remove a bunch of the spells that cost more than 3 mana and include some free spells and other large instant speed card advantage spells. These are the staples of storm decks. It isn't flash, it isnt Tendrils of Agony, its cards that help you cast many spells.

Cards that Need to go. Deadeye Navigator, Mulldrifter, Dig Through Time, Gush-unless you add Doomsday which you should, Future Sight, Leyline of Anticipation, Rhystic Study-its way too slow for this strategy, Tendrils of Agony, Treasure Cruise, Gilded Lotus, Vedalken Orrery, and Tezzeret the Seeker

Other cards that should be though about hard before including.
Guttersnipe, Peregrine Drake, all the red rituals-do you really have enough red to make use of them?, Turnabout-its expensive for the effect and usually there are better choices, Same for Paradoxical Outcome, without all the expensive cards As Foretold will probably be very lackluster when it comes out especially since you are trying to win fast, Past in Flames is the last one, it's very expensive when you have access to Yawgmoth's Will and usually 1 of these effects is good enough.

Now I have some suggestions on replacements. Helm of Awakening would be great for Mind's Desire and Hurkyl's Recall. It allows all of your 2 drop signets and talismans to be mana neutral which allows you to build massive storm counts. It also turns cards like Snap and Frantic Search mana positive. Speaking of that put in all 3 signets and both the talismans. Then add some card advantage, cards like Thirst for Knowledge and Fact or Fiction and Night's Whisper are far better than Rhystic Study. With all the untapping of lands a High Tide package would be good but you would need to add like 6-9 more islands but its very worth it. I have been play testing with Into the Roil and Remand as well. I find them to be super good at raising my storm count when I use them on my own spells/permanents. The last bit of advice I have is change Faithless Looting into a Dack Fayden. He combos super well with Notion Thief and can help you ramp.

Other than grabbing the Aetherflux Reservoir Tezzeret the Seeker seems like he's a bit slow. I get that he gives you mana but if you want a walker Dack Fayden would be a better choice. Also Gilded Lotus is better replaced by signets ie:Dimir Signet,Rakdos Signet in a storm build. And if you're adding Isochron Scepter Dramatic Reversal should be an auto include. especially with your number of rocks.

Here is my list for much the same deck except I went for Time Spiral/High Tide instead of Mind's Desire. Kess prototype

Oh and before I forget if you add a Notion Thief for the wheel combo's add a Dack Fayden. Its fantastic to target an opponents with Dack's first ability and flash in a Notion Thief.

Hi mmcgeach,

Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately Intuition and Necropotence are also banned in Leviathan. Fire Covenant, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip and Dack Fayden are great, I'm trying to find them to add to the deck. Land's you've mentioned are also good addition.

Today I've get a little bit depressed cause I've realised that all shock lands that I'm using can kill me during Worldgorger combo :( I didn't think about this before and no-one have noticed this. That's a shame cause I can't afford original dual lands now.

Beside of this shock lands misunderstood the Breya was great in 1v1 and 2v2. I have won most of the games, with ratio per FNM like 3 won, 1 lost. Most of the lost games was because of the flood. I feel like I'm running to many lands, maybe I could cut one or two.

One more thing. I was thinking about adding Dark Petition but I was afraid that it's to expensive for Dark Confidant and Ad Nauseam.

Heya heartofwolf,

I have no idea what Leviathan is all about... but,

I guess Necropotence is banned?

If you're missing a tutor you could use Intuition, it's alright for getting 3 of the same thing, and can sometimes set up salvagers-LED if you have a reanimation spell already. You can also try Dark Petition, which is a little slow, but is real good at setting up a mid/late-game doomsday.

I'd look to adding Fire Covenant and Dack Fayden, they're real good. I also really like JVP, which has already been mentioned. I don't really like Reanimate unless you have a stronger reanimation focus or some kind of combo with snapcaster or something.

You could upgrade the manabase a little: you definitely want Exotic Orchard and Forbidden Orchard and probably Mana Confluence.

You said you were playing this in a 2vs2 environment... how has that been?! I'm curious!
