Drift of Phantasms Discussion

thcue on Nobody has the intention of building a Wall

Okay one thing that has me wondering is the morf thing..

Drift of Phantasms

We can come in morf then when it flips draw a card, then re-morf then when it comes to a wall again draw a card is this how it's working? Just want to clear things up with my mind.

Also in my deck I took out the Shield Wall the +2 is eh but honestly you can put in a card that you want to test out in it's place.

When I get home I'll have to look what changes I did, but the deck is feared by my group.

I thought about that, but that's essentially what the transmute card are there for.

Grisly Salvage can pick up any of the creatures, is instant speed, and digs deeper than any cantrip.

Arguably, cantrips may be better for finding Intruder Alarm , though Perplex can do that (albeit very slowly), while also providing early - mid game tempo. Of course, Perplex has diminishing returns, your opponent might not care about discarding their hand to resolve a spell.

It is possible that Perplex should be Drift of Phantasms , as this is a Transmutable tutor that can be picked up by Grisly Salvage .

I'm not sure, really. The deck will need some playtesting. This is the first draft of the deck.

any thoughts on some transmute tutors for your 2/3CMC combo pieces like Muddle the Mixture / Drift of Phantasms ?

Vlasiax I like that call. The signets seemed a little clunky and inferior to the talisman counterparts already. Decided to swap in Carven Caryatid for some more thinning/draw. Also went with Drift of Phantasms because that card should really have been in the original build. The transmute ability can fetch just about any piece in the deck.

Nice deck, but since you already run Curiosity , how do you feel about Ophidian Eye , Tandem Lookout , and Drift of Phantasms to fetch them out?

Hey Allergymedsandcats! I'm beginning to build this deck too, and was hoping a more experienced pilot like you could help me? I'm using your budget list for my biggest reference point for my deck however, because my meta is more casual than competitive insofar it doesn't have stax/blood pod/breakfast hulk/doomsday/chainveil/etc etc. (link here if you want).

What is your opinion on an odd card like Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip (and Drift of Phantasms ) to replace the expensive Gaea's Cradle (which I don't have yet)? And since I also don't have Dryad Arbor yet should I still include Crop Rotation just for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Do you think Exploration (which I don't have yet) is good enough to warrant Gaea's Touch ? Also do you think Birds of Paradise or counterspells like Logic Knot / Arcane Denial / Abjure / Swan Song / Heroic Intervention are all suboptimal for my budget constraints? What other budget cards are worth mentioning for Edric?

I was also wondering if I should include Twincast / Mission Briefing / Flood of Recollection / Skullwinder / Beacon of Tomorrows to make up for the lack of warp density (I don't have Capture of Jingzhou / Nexus of Fate / Temporal Manipulation / Time Warp )? Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer <3

Portcullis Vine would be much better than Wall of Mulch , since not all your defender creatures are walls (such as Axebane Guardian , Drift of Phantasms , or Perimeter Captain ).

Also, Drift of Phantasms really doesn't fit what you're trying to do here. Sure, you could fetch Blue Sun's Zenith , Axebane Guardian or Freed from the Real with the transmute ability, or enjoy its ability to fly, but there are better walls in blue (that don't cost 2 dollars apiece). I'd suggest getting a lower-CMC wall (Maybe Suspicious Bookcase ?) that gets you the utility you want for cheaper. I say this because although you have here a ready-built infinite mana combo ( Freed from the Real + Axebane Guardian ) that Drift of Phantasms could enable, you're not using it for anything. Do you really need Freed from the Real on all those turns where you stall out and draw lands instead of more defender creatures?

You might also consider running High Alert here instead of (or alongside) Assault Formation , since Assault Formation costs green to enable defenders to attack while High Alert does not. Just a thought.
