Staple: (STAY-pull) noun

A card that is in consideration for all decks that can legally run it, e.g. Demonic Tutor, Rampant Growth, et cetera.

For your manabase, Gilded Lotus is a bit slow. I'd recommend replacing it with a Fellwar Stone or one of the Talismans.

Another Infinite Mana/Cast combo is Isochron Scepter+Dramatic Reversal. Drowned Secrets can be a fun way to mill your opponents, but it doesn't seem to support what the rest of your deck is doing. Brainspoil has transmute, but there are not many targets for it. I'd cut those two cards if you want to include the Reversal Stick combo. There's also a lot of weird things you can do with Kess and Narset's Reversal on a stick, I can tell you more about that if you're interested.

Also, I'm assuming you're using Diabolic Tutor instead of Demonic Tutor for budget reasons.

Reznorboy - Good day to you!

I am not really sure what benefit there is to playing Instants and Sorceries over creatures to produce tokens. I could see playing Saproling Migration over Emmara, but the effect is more or less the same.

One of the things I attempt to do with my decks is have them each possess a different game plan. I see the appeal of abusing enchantments, though I already have an Enchantress Deck in Karametra and, as for Bastion of Remembrance, an Aristocrats Deck in Adun Oakenshield. I am an aggressive player at heart, and this deck was meant to embody that. These game plans are fun, but the aggro style is distinct.

Now, however aggressive I like to be, I love secondary game plans. Carnival of Souls is a card I have wanted to abuse, though never got around to experimenting. It works well with the deck, given the horrendous number of tokens it spews, yet I do not have many solid cards in here with which I may spend all that mana. I am open to suggestions on that part.

Daxos seems rather fine, thereupon I may put it in the list, but I do prefer Gisela in this slot, merely due to her being an awesome card.

Yes, tutors. I own multiple Demonic Tutors, so perhaps I should add one...

Thank you very much, and I would love further guidance with Carnival of Souls. Black is more of a splash in this list, so I may need to rework most of it.

Have a lovely day.

Epicurus on Yarok, Landlubber

goldlion I have actually found that my favorite land combo is to have either Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator, a couple permanents that allow additional lands, and either Strip Mine or Wasteland, and then destroy a few lands every turn. But the playing lands from graveyard plus playing additional lands dynamic is also effective with a couple landfall effects and any of the fetch lands, so as to create even more triggers. So the specific land fetch like Expedition Map might be helpful, but I'm also considering Fabricate and maybe a Demonic Tutor for the Crucible.

Thanks again for all the suggestions!

But only if you try to search for the wincons yourself and this is flashed in.

If you play your Demonic Tutor after your opponent has Opposition Agent in play, you deserve to lose, imo. Apart from Maralen of the Mornsong and Scheming Symmetry, what other cards are there that make your opponents search their library that aren't may-effects? Field of Ruin, Avatar of Growth, Collective Voyage, Fertilid, Pir's Whim or Winds of Abandon? Not many players have basic lands as winconditions, and even when you control your opponent if they are searching their libraries, you must still abide to what the effect that makes them search can find, right?

So unless you build your deck to abuse graveyard recursion to cast the Scheming Symmetry over and over again from your graveyard, you're not going to get everyone's wincons all the time. You get one shot at it, and stop your opponents from searching after that. And if you do build your deck that way, why aren't you using an extra turn spell, instead of Symmetry, which is a lot safer vs instant removal for the agent and probably more effective in winning games?

plakjekaas So, I actually wanted to do the math on this, assuming you were in a Sultai+ shell, running the following tutors and cantrips, by turn three how often would you get OA and SS in hand?

Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Imperial Seal, Mystical Tutor, Lim-Dul's Vault, Worldly Tutor, Ponder, Preordain, Brainstorm, Gitaxian Probe

If mulliganning to 4 is an option, the set looks to be a 64% chance to get both halves by turn three. This is further helped by running other forms of card advantage or search, effects like Neoform, Personal Tutor, Mindblade Render, slightly helped by running two commanders, Sylvan Library, Mystic Remora, etc.

hejtmane My issue is that Aven Mindcensor can't get other people's Aven Mindcensor's, so that when you kill the first and use the tutors you stopped playing when looking for interaction they steal a counterspell to protect the stolen Aven Mindcensor.

One card makes you lose some of the options. It turns Demonic Tutor into Shimmer of Possibility, a much worse card, Opposition Agent counters it, then searches your deck, then takes the best card from it, then puts it into a zone that's nearly impossible to interact with, and has a better body. It's like comparing Mana Leak to Mana Drain.
