Disrupting Scepter Discussion

Looks good so far, and similar to a deck I have on here: What Tiggers Do Best. If you could, please return the favor and tell me how you think I can improve that.

I feel like Disrupting Scepter would slow down the deck, or at least that's my experience of it. Also, I don't see Mana Drain helping you out as much as you might want it to. You don't have much in there that costs colorless mana, except for your planeswalkers, and even they don't cost a whole lot. Also, you already sufficient ramp, unless you'd like to add a Lake of the Dead. Finally, you have a lot of tutors, but I really don't think you need that many. I'd either decide on one to drop, or else drop Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, because his ult might be amazing, but it takes a long time to set off, and would really only be useful for card draw (which is less useful with as many tutors as you're running).

If you want the repetitive effects of the Disrupting Scepter, I would run Isochron Scepter instead. And maybe Warped Devotion because of all the bounce, but even if you didn't, I'd try to fit in at least a couple Recoil.

I have been seeing a lot more hype generate around Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded for Oathbreaker. This seems like the format he as inevitably designed for as he allows you to burn through your library at a rapid pace while having both the consistency of being in the Command Zone and the tempo of costing merely . In fact, you can quite literally T1 him.

Actually, I'm seeing a LOT of cards find a new power curve in Oathbreaker.

Now I'm not entirely sure how viable he truly is, but if someone can find a way to force opponents to get cards in red, he can actually be quite a threat. It may seem silly to pair him up with The Rack , but if you also run Wheel of Fortune , Howling Mine , Dragon Mage , Memory Jar , etc you can ensure your opponent has the biggest hand size possible.

Then, throw down some crap like Disrupting Scepter , Specter's Shroud , Possessed Portal , etc to whittle their hand back down to 0.

It's an odd way to play, but it hits them from multiple angles:

  • Tibalt's -4
  • Wheel of Fortune 's damage
  • The Rack 's damage
  • Constantly disrupting their game plan because their cards are always rotating out
  • Possibly land-locking them if they keep dumping lands or keep drawing nothing but lands

needs more bounce - Temporal Adept, Crystal Shard, etc with pitch creatures (like Relentless Rats ) would likely help as well.

if you aren't going as much bounce, take a look into Scepter of Fugue and Disrupting Scepter for handpicking, as well as Honden of Night's Reach for manaless activation
