Discovery / Dispersal



Surveil 2, then draw a card. (To surveil 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of thm into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)


Each opponent returns a nonland permanent they control with the highest converted mana cost among permanents they control to its owner's hand, then discards a card.

What about using the "Discovery" half of Discovery / Dispersal instead of Strategic Planning ? It can potentially dig as deep if there's garbage on top, but wouldn't force you to discard 2 cards if there's not.

Also a couple copies of Mission Briefing could allow for easier casting of 3 spells in a turn.

I think Glowspore Shaman or Gorging Vulture is what you might find useful.

Also, from my personal experience, Discovery / Dispersal is very good to fill in your graveyard OR filter, AND draws you a card on top of it. Similarly, the 'Explore' mechanics proved to be useful for my graveyard deck. Either fill in graveyard or put a land card into your hand. Both useful. Jadelight Ranger or Merfolk Branchwalker to name two.

Skyler1776 That ones going in for sure, great suggestion. I'm thinking of sideboarding the Darkblade Agent and one of the Discovery / Dispersal cards for 3x of those.

Is Revitalize rotated out? If so, should I replace it with Hero of Precinct One or Discovery / Dispersal ?

Discovery / Dispersal is without health gain, and only lets me draw one card like Revitalize except it has surveil 2. I would prefer to keep revitalize and I have Absorb for the very reason that it counters all spells as well as gives health. I don't know what an Esper knights deck would entrain. Also, isn't my deck rotation proof? I can't wait to see the decks made with Throne of Eldraine. Hero of Precinct One seems very useful, but what cards would I exchange it for?

I noticed your 9/30/19 update stating that you included Thrill of Possibility to the main deck, however it is still appearing in the maybeboard. Regardless, here are some of my thoughts on the build:

I hope these helped, and let me know your thoughts!

I'm not the best when it comes to deck building but I can see there's lots to improve.

What to cut: - Darkblade Agent - Completely pointless and does not help develop your deck's strategy neither is it a win con.

Looks like pain to play against :) maybe here some ideas:

Remove the pay aspect. Otherwise you run 3 decks in one I guess.

My Oppinion:

remove 2x Font of Agonies

remove 2x Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip

remove 2x Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord (here you run too less vamps I guess)

remove 4x Scoured Barrens

Add 2x The Haunt of Hightower

Add 4x Discovery / Dispersal (good carddraw)

Add 4x Isolated Chapel
