Dramatic Reversal Discussion

Osbert on Breya, Ghost in the Shell

May I suggest Muddle the Mixture? Transmute for a missing combo piece of Foundry-Sword, Nim Deathmantle, Time Sieve, Cyclonic Rift, If you were running it, any piece of the Isochron Scepter-Dramatic Reversal + 3 mana from non-land sources (like Grand Architect or mana rocks) combo., and Reshape. And I mean, it is also a counter spell, but who would want to use it for that when it fetches you your game winning goody. :p It's one of 2 counter spells I run, and I think it's actually only countered one spell ever, but won me almost every game it's been drawn.

As for the mana base, some dual lands would do work here, like Glacial Fortress, Sulfur Falls and Mystic Monastery.

As for removal, Pacifism could just be Blessed Alliance or Lightning Helix, both of which are better. Cancel is just a worse Void Shatter or Disallow. Mana Leak is probably the best option available.

Some card advantage would probably also be good here, like Think Twice. Also, Dramatic Reversal dosen't really make sense to me, since you're only using to untap creatures, and if your looking to preserve your lifetotal, you got removal to help doing that.

Soulfire Grand Master looks like it could do some serious work here. Ojutai's Command is also an option.

i'd run a lot more in the way of counter spells. Being able to cast Counterspell, Cryptic Command, Exclude etc every turn is powerful.

I think you have way too many ways to shuffle your graveyard into your library. I'd run 1-2 at most. Memory Erosion also seems suspect as you will likely be winning via combo or damage rather than mill. I'd keep Sphinx's Tutelage in only if you plan on drawing your deck to mill everyone (i explain how to to this in a sec)

Also you should probably get your hands on a Paradox Engine. Its a good card in general but can also go infinite.

if you imprint kaho with a 1 mana cantrip like Ponder, Preordain, Brainstorm, Serum Visions etc...

Paradox Engine+Kaho, Minamo Historian+mana rock= infinite draws. Eventually you can draw into and play a second mana rock and then every time you do the loop you gain 1 mana. Keep doing this until you draw your entire deck. At that you can switch over to a different spell with cmc less than the amount of mana you are producing(might mean targeting a token from Pongify with another copy of pongify) each untap to generate infinite mana. With the ability to draw infinite cards and infinite mana, you can cast a Blue Sun's Zenith on each opponent where x=1000 to kill everyone else at the table.

Casting infinite copies of Reality Shift exiles their libraries too.

Also copying a Dramatic Reversal with enough mana rocks out can also generate infinite mana.

Once you have infinite mana if you have something you can tap to draw cards like Arcanis the Omnipotent you can do this to draw your deck, use brainstorm to put a Reality Shift in the deck, play Deadeye Navigator to reset kaho getting your copy of shift you can win that way.

For what it's worth the Deadeye Navigator in your deck generates infinite mana with Peregrine Drake or Palinchron

As you can see there are several ways to to draw your deck so even somethink like Laboratory Maniac is viable.

Sorry if that was a bit long bit here are the cards i think you need: counterspells, Paradox Engine, a few more mana rocks

You almost have another infinite combo...

Other ideas..

There are many. Reiterate goes infinite with Reset, Turnabout and Reality Spasm given either enough lands or experience counters. Isochron Scepter goes infinite with Dramatic Reversal or Paradox Engine and enough rocks. Both Reiterate and Capsize go infinite with Paradox Engine as well.

immckirahan with the activation of top on the stack you put and activation of Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal on the stack, untapping top and putting using it to draw again, after drawing your first card top goes on the top and then you draw it with the second draw on the stack. You have infinite mana from the Isochron combo and use it to keep playing top.

I actually decided to try out the scepter/reversal combo as well while I wait for a few pieces to show up in the mail and it has been decent. Still not sold on it but I can see it being a reasonable inclusion. That said, Isochron Scepter has been very good in the games I played it, even when I did not have the Dramatic Reversal. I usually just imprint something like Counterspell but the ability to reuse it every turn, even though everyone else can see it coming and will likely play around it has been very good.

I also tried out Paradox Engine and it has been absurd. I have won every game that I cast it, immediately after resolving it. Although you do not run the Future Sight/Sensei's Divining Top/Cloud Key combo in your list (which Paradox Engine works as a backup Cloud Key), I still think it is worth trying out due to the shenanigans it does with all of the mana rocks in the deck.
