Distortion Strike Discussion

i was curious, so i opened your deck up and playtested it 5 rounds against my favorite modern competitive deck, which i physically own: Brother, That Looks... Infected.

the results were... definitive. your deck CANNOT beat a dedicated infect deck in an experienced players hand. even with turn 1 thoughtsieze, turn 2 collective brutality with 1 escalate, turn 3 liliana and turn 4 flashback souls, Inkmoth Nexus plus either Distortion Strike or Apostle's Blessing and any pump spell spelled the end. i tried my best, but your deck just wasn't fast enough for the match up and had near 0 ways of dealing with inkmoth nexus on your own turn, which is the best time to kill infect creatures, since you have to use pump/protection spells to save them without being able to attack with the bonus active.

granted, i couldn't access sideboard, but honestly i can't see anything that would have made much of a difference. maybe take a look at that matchup, since Infect seems to be on the rise against. Best of luck!

I would recommend the addition of ways to make creatures unblockable, Rogue's Passage Aqueous Form Distortion Strike Whispersilk Cloak This will guaranty that every time you swing in you will deal damage and get a hit counter. I wish you the best of luck and will definitely upvote the deck.

was thinking 4Wizard's Retort in the side and 2 Spell Pierce in the main would be solid. Still going to recommend Distortion Strike with all of the Prowess, and going to get a couple hits in.

I would probably take out Ionize the 3 just feels too much here

I really enjoy Distortion Strike in my wizard deck. Def recommend it with rebound. Lets you get in. I also liked Spell Pierce

Haven't played with Mission Briefing yet def need to get some of them

there probably is an instant version of Distortion Strike but Rebound i think is worth being a sorcery since your most likely not casting a card to make your creatures unblockable at instant speed anyway

I think Manamorphose would be fun here. Buffs your creatures and leave you enough mana to cast another spell.

Dispel help protect your creatures, and Opt to help you draw and buff

Distortion Strike could also be fun. get some direct hits.

I have a similar fun deck thats all wizards Wizard Rush, and Wizard's Lightning, and Adeliz, the Cinder Wind makes it worth it.

Wee Dragonauts is also a wizard so more synergy

Being able to get 2 cards has made the Chart a Course feel worth it, and more like I have gas most of the time. It can be clunky if you can't attack but I like it at 2.

Distortion Strike just feels like an all star most of the time when you get it. If they don't wipe your creatures it's +2 power with prowess and direct hits with a single creature over 2 turns.

I really like the idea of Distortion Strike, though I don’t know where I’d put it yet.

I considered Chart a Course, but didn’t like the non-synergy of needing to wait until after I attack to avoid discarding a card, which would pump my prowess creatures to no effect. Has it worked well for you though?

Thanks for the suggestions!
