Dig Through Time Discussion

thatrhetoricguy, I can't say that it has ever occurred to me to mill myself with the Runechanter's Pike. Not sure if it is a strategy I will adopt if I am honest.

hoardofnotions I have considered them all. I may try and find space for a Dig Through Time and may reconsider Careful Study but I am not a huge fan of the others. I might test them sometime and see if my opinion has changed though!

Domineering Will is funny to use as people don't expect it. It's also useful as a political tool as you can give another opponent creatures to help defend themselves.

Mirror Match is similar in amusement to Domineering Will, especially if the attacking player is running an ETB effect deck! It does cost a lot, however it has saved me a few times.

Delta-117 I did think about Kindred Discovery when it was spoiled, I think I may test it out, however I very rarely struggle to draw cards in this deck and I'm not sure what I would take out for this.

Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time seem great! might be worth running more looting type cards like Mental Note and Careful Study to help fuel them

How has Domineering Will worked for you? Is it a triple kill spell alot of the time?

How has Mirror Match worked for you?

I saw what you said about Gravitational Shift and i think it could use some reconsideration. It slows down your opponents creatures and you'll generally have more flying dudes that benefit. I do like favorable winds, so maybe you only have room to run one?

In the Eye of Chaos is very clever, but keep in mind that if someone removes Taigam before your next upkeep, you'll have to pay the X for each of your rebounded instants. Same concept for Chalice of the Void.

Some ideas:

Things you could cut:

  • Scroll Rack, It's good, but you have a ton of draw already, and it doesn't interact with much else here.

  • Silence, Maybe. Your stuff is uncounterable anyway.

  • Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time, These two might be more difficult to cast the turn you want to, since all your other spells are going into exile for a turn.

Hotcake_Gotsyrup Exactly! and with the fast mana abundance in cEDH, a turn 3/4 second sun shouldnt be too hard, then dig/tutor for a turn 5/6 cast. I admit it can be slow, but at the same time you can run countermagic and stax to prevent someone else from comboing off on you. Dig Through Time is a bomb card in the deck im building because it literally draws you your second sun again, and U/W has plenty of tutors for this strategy to go off. Only problem im having is my lack of card knowledge so its not optimal yet

FreudianSlip I like Dig Through Time and would consider making room for it if I already had one, but I'm not a huge fan of Windfall in this build because I usually rely on reusing Buyback spells a lot to get storm going and I wouldn't want to discard.

Looks pretty good! Any thoughts about Dig Through Time and Windfall?

@AwesomeOctopus: Cool, my knowledge of blue and red are really iffy at best since I mainly play Black and Green and really only ever use blue as a light splash. So thanks for your suggestions! I really like Acquire because that gives me solid options against my friend's Kemba deck. Insurrection and Desertion are really cool ideas and make me think I should a lot more stealing in this deck, might also consider something like Beguiler of Wills. Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time can definitely replace Brilliant Plan and Concentrate.

I really like the Lightning Bolt + Reiterate + Reset Combo, but I don't think I'm really willing to drop the $19 on Reset alone.

Yeah, Pyromancer's Gauntlet really was just something I had sitting around, and Increasing Vengeance probably should replace it.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Don't forget Acquire to go steal their Blightsteel Colossus or Wurmcoil Engine. if your playgroup runs a lot of creatures Desertion is a great card, especially since you have way too few counterspells for a combo deck. Insurrection would also be great against your playgroup, as you can come out of nowhere to win. I see you run Omniscience + Enter the Infinite combo and I'm guessing all of the draw is to filter through your deck to find enter the infinite, but you have SOOOOO much draw. I would at least replace some of the draw cards with better ones like Treasure Cruise (arguably the best draw spell other than ancestral recall) and Dig Through Time (there's a reason they're banned in eternal formats, they're that good.)

Also if you run omniscience you are going to need a lot better ramp than that. getting to 10 mana will be hard. If you don't mind being degenerate, you can run the Firemind's Foresight + Lightning Bolt + Reiterate + Reset combo (all those can be fetched with fireminds and they win you the game if not countered. You opponents will appreciate the combo that ends the game quickly rather than taking 3 extra turns in a row and taking a half hour of basically you playing by yourself.

I tried Pyromancer's Goggles and was very unimpressed. its a very inefficient mana rock and only copies red spells, when most of yours are blue. I would replace it with Increasing Vengeance it copies any color and can be repeated for a double copy super-combo.

Surrakar Spellblade is cute but a 2/1 will just die in combat and will never be able to connect to draw you those cards.

some cards which have no reason to not be in your deck:
