Dramatic Reversal Discussion

TheDevicer on Baral/How do I Blue?

Alright, fair enough.

Here's a list of your worst cards at a glance:

If you're gonna run Dramatic Reversal and you already have the labman combo, you should include Isochron Scepter and Blue Sun's Zenith to kill the board. Oh, and a land like Ghost Quarter or Tectonic Edge won't hurt you. If you want a ramp option, Terrain Generator's ok.

I have a janky Arcanis list on my profile if you want to see what a Tuned mono U deck piloted by a shitty general can look like.

I would suggest you put in some more stuff that meddles with the counters on the commander. Preferrably cards that are good alone as well and/or can win the game on their own.

For example: Clockspinning - also works well with planeswalkers and the buyback makes an easy infinite combo with Paradox Engine (don't forget to add more mana artifacts!). Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal is a similar method and both cards are great on their own. Contagion Clasp is a nice removal for little creatures and it can help with the commander counters too...very effective with Tezzeret the Seeker .

good planeswalkers for this deck would be Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Tezzeret the Seeker and maybe some Ajani or Gideon, because most of the cards for these two guys have some aggro boosts in their abilities.

Cards do only what they say, no more, and no less.

Dramatic Reversal says "Untap all nonland permanents you control." This means that, when it resolves, it untaps any creature, artifact, enchantment, or planeswalker you control at that moment that is not also a land. It doesn't do anything else.

Dramatic Reversal

What Dramatic Reversal does is untap all nonland permanents you control. What it doesn't do is a rather long list, including, but not limited to, it doesn't untap your permanents, it doesn't deal damage, it doesn't destroy anything, it doesn't return anything from graveyard to field or hand, it doesn't cause your opponent to discard. At least, not directly, as it untaps permanents, it could be indirectly responsible for you doing those things if your permanents tap to cause them. Do you have a more specific question about Dramatic Reversal?

What you are saying makes sense for the most part, but I'm still not completely sold on Helm of Obedience. My thougt would be that in a more controlling/stax deck, it would be incredible, but in a fast combo deck like storm, you want something that is cheaper and can kill the entire table. Leyline of the Void is probably good regardless of combo potential, but have you considered the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter Combo? With the number of mana rocks you run, it shouldn't be too hard to pull off, besides having pieces that are easy to tutor for and useful on their own. Dramatic Reversal is a solid ritual in a pinch, and Isochron Scepter is decent with Mana Drain, in addition to the fact that you can just imprint a normal ritual for value, activate the scepter - potentially twice with Voltaic Key - and just Hurkyl's Recall it back to your hand on your combo turn. Even if you aren't able to net mana off of each activation, e.g you only have two mana worth of rocks, you still get massive - infinite storm.

That being said, I still know very little about the archetype, so if you still think the Helm combo is better than you're probably right.

I would add Dramatic Reversal just for the infinite mana combo with Isochron Scepter (along with eggs)

Hey, nice mill deck :) always wanted to build one of these. One of my favorite words to find on a magic card is "whenever". With that in mind I got a few card ideas to share:

Sewer Nemesis, Hedron Crab, Riddlekeeper, Illusionist's Bracers, Paradox Engine, Hollowsage, Arbiter of the Ideal, Tidal Force, Dramatic Reversal, Intellectual Offering, Breaking Wave, Rings of Brighthearth

Happy gathering!
