Deep Analysis Discussion

You lose when you go to draw a card and can't draw a card. Milling a card from your library won't do anything when there is no library to mill. To supplement the combo you can add Laboratory Maniac and reanimate him and draw a card by flashing back Deep Analysis to win the game. I took him out because he was not fun though.

So, Windfall and stuff like Izzet Charm work well. The problem is when you need to cast Fiery Temper in response to an opponent. I would cut Faithless Looting, Fact or Fiction, Dig Through Time, Deep Analysis for stuff like Reforge the Soul, Forgotten Creation, and Jace's Archivist, which not only give you discard outlets and new cards, but also fill your grave much quicker.

I my own attempt at Baral EDH, i have more really cheap counters, like Dispel, Swan Song and Disrupt, as well as cards that synergize with Barals looting ability (Obsessive Search, Deep Analysis, Alhammarret's Archive, Thought Reflection).
Also, i run Polymorph since it's so fun to cast it turn 3 off Baral and put something absurd like Kederekt Leviathan or Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur into play.

Hope of Ghirapur is already in the deck.

Slither Blade is an easy swap. I like that it's a rogue, but I don't like that it's blue. I'll probably swap out Surveilling Sprite for it.

Memnite is fantastic and is not coming out. The ability to drop it first turn with a 1-drop dork for a turn 2 Edric AND a draw is too good to pass up. The only other way to get that is using a 0 mana accelerant, which are much more inconsistent.

Has anyone considered that I don't have Capture of Jingzhou simply because a) I'm out of room, and b) the HD package is just better? It's not necessary to chain turns together if on one of those turns you straight up win. Right now I can swap Temporal Mastery for Capture if people really think it's necessary, but I already don't have enough room for Deep Analysis, so right now the HD combo needs Edric and the combat step for the winning LabMan draw. Personally I'd put Deep Analysis back in before Capture. If anyone can think of some good swaps let me know, but until then I'm not going to put in another 5 mana spell that doesn't contribute to my plan A.

Also, Carpet of Flowers is in the sideboard and is going to stay in the sideboard. It's pretty much an obvious swap for a Llanowar Elves/Elvish Mystic/Fyndhorn Elves/What-have-you, and I don't like putting meta dependent cards in the mainboard if I don't have to.

I'm a fan! This is the Noyan list that matches the playstyle I am looking for the most. I have a few questions though.

You have a few quite narrow answers. Do these kinds of threats and situations come up often enough in general to warrant a slot or are they just a meta call for you? For example, Hushwing Gryff, Submerge, Hallowed Moonlight, Mental Misstep, Squelch. I'm also on the fence about Teferi's Response but I can see the blowouts it can create.

Is Pristine Talisman's little life gain worth it over something more efficient? Would you consider Gift of Estates a suitable budget replacement for Tithe or Wayfarer?

Is Cataclysmic Gearhulk strong enough compared to other boardwipes? Flashing it in with Scout's Warning must be fun, but I feel like letting my opponents choose ruins the card.

Aside from regular counterspells, are Sacred Ground and Teferi's Response enough protection for your lands? Asking because your mtgsalvation list had Terra Eternal, Trade Routes and Mother of Runes as well.

One last question, despite Deep Analysis being pure value, does the sorcery speed not mess with you too much?

Yeah he makes sense but I had my hopes up for something else given that to work for FC and HD combo I need a minimum of Deep Analysis. What do I cut to make room for him and deep analysis. I also had my heart set on adding Gaea's Cradle to get to 30 lands
