Diluvian Primordial

Creature — Avatar

Flying

When Diluvian Primordial enters the battlefield, for each opponent, you may cast up to one target instant or sorcery card from that player's graveyard without paying its mana cost. If a card cast this way would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile it instead.

Thanks for the review WizardOfTheNorthernCoast! Looks good! I got some tips from the discussion on your deckpage. Unexpected Results is definitely on-theme but it could stop the Surge wincon. Seems like you put in more passive draw compared to my ETB/on-cast draw. I guess I could try that for another time. Would you ever get more than 7 cards and have to discard though?

  • I put the Conjurer's Closet and Minion Reflector because I have alot of ETB effects, so these help me to 'recycle' them. I think its fine to cast them on the mainphase or flash them in with Orrery/ Leyline/ Alchemist Refuge. The Reflector requires me to pay each time so i'll be cutting it out.

  • I'll be cutting Beast Whisperer first since GP works with the conjurer's closet. The Whisperer can be copied to give me insane draw though, so I need to test it out. And I almost forgot, the commander herself is a draw engine.

  • Primal Surge says 'may' so that incident with the Leviathan stopping the wincon wouldnt happen!

  • the Murkfiend Liege was meant to be my alternate Seedborn Muse but would only work if I had more manadorks. Having 6 manadorks, probably this isnt a reliable way to get flash mana.

  • I actually opt to remove Mwonvuli Beast Tracker because it has only 5 targets now/

  • swapping Wood Elves for Farhaven Elf because the only value land I get from the latter is Breeding Pool . Being able to search for any basic means I can get more islands online for Scourge of Fleets

  • shelving Gyre Sage for now as it takes awhile to get online, while Karametra's Acolyte is probably more reliable for ramp

  • I kinda like the Coatl / Mizzium Meddler / Voidmage Husher / Void Grafter though. Part of the theme of flashing

  • the Diluvian Primordial could work many things. Maybe I cast a wheel, or flash the Primordial in response to use an opponent's Counterspell. hahah

I think for the final cuts it should be some of the 'fun-but-grindy' cards.

  • Conjurer's Closet only triggers once per round and only the Orrery can sneak these artifacts into play, which means you have to commit a turn to this.

  • Minion Reflector is awesome because of the haste, but should probably get cut for the same reason as above. Moreover, Rashmi wants you to play a spell on each of your opponents turns, which makes main phase casting less appealing. I think you'll find yourself not casting these if you have flash creatures you'd rather keep up.

  • Guardian Project or Beast Whisperer GP nonbo's with clone effects, while BW nonbo's with cheat effects. There are still 10ish draw effects, so you can can trim one.

  • Brawn or Wonder or both. These are great and the pro's are good but so are the cons, of which I'm sure you're aware but here are two for this deck specifically: 1) The Profaner and Scourge you added work very effectively as "evasion" granters, and are more gratifying to cast (and loop with bounce effects) 2) we don't have many methods of reliably dumping them into the graveyard ourselves other than Profaner and Vannifar or flashing them in as a surprise blocker (combo decks won't be attacking)

The final cut: These are all really good, at this point we're cutting power or utility so this one is again up to your preferences and playgroup. Any of them are worth keeping. Here are some thoughts though on the remainder: - Winged Coatl not as splashy? feels bad to trim unique and signature cards though - Diluvian Primordial is super fun and has a high ceiling powerlevel, but sometimes can be a dud. If you need to trim a fatty, this one doesn't protect your wincons like the Archetype of Endurance. - Protean Hulk always value, but really asks to be in a sac-then-recur deck as we can't Pod it ourselves or recur it reliably (Vannifar and EWit notwithstanding). - one of the clones

Good luck!

Mostly, i tryed to sinergise my creatures, like Doom Whisperer & Approach of the Second Sun

What i do it's manipulate the top with Approach of the Second Sun , with Doom Whisperer and Sensei's Divining Top in the field, then Pay 6 Life (even with 1 life total this will works since you gain 7 lifes) and use the top to take Approach of the Second Sun and hard cast it in the same turn in second main fase to win the game very oddly.

Also, Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign works very well with Artisan of Kozilek and Sepulchral Primordial / Diluvian Primordial giving me a TON of Value with at least 2 huge creatures, and probably 5 creatures or 3 other good spells (and also get rid of those spells), get the most valuable from others graveyards.

If there's something to improve it's probably use some fetch lands, and i'm considering Penance and Haunted Crossroads

Panharmonicon to double triggers, Resolute Archangel (could probably replace filigree) to reset your life total, Angel of Finality for those pesky GY decks, Diluvian Primordial to cast your opponents spells, and lastly Sunblast Angel + Subjugator Angel because with Brago your creatures have Psuedo Vigilence, and boardwipes for days, theirs not yours. Hope this helps a bit, I know it's all over the place but you'll love it I'm sure ;). Enjoy
