Dual Casting Discussion

Saw the link and request for budget suggestions. I haven't played Melek but I am currently playing Mizzix of the Izmagnus and used to play Keranos, God of Storms. I'm a fan or UR all-around. The suggestions below are fairly generic since I'm unsure of how you want to win. Suggestions are based around cards I've used before in 60-card formats or in EDH with the previously mentioned legendaries, and should be under $5 each.

Spell-cost Reduction

Token Generators


Copy Effects

Thanks 5dollarMTG , I totally forgot about Guttersnipe ^^" . Never heard of Slither Blade before so thanks as well for that. I was thinking of dropping Dual Casting since it doesn´t trigger the pingers and from playing this deck for some weeks now, it hasn´t been THAT useful so maybe something extra to draw cards or an artifact to generate mana?

If you wanna go all-in on the spell copying i have a few things. You need cost reduction, in addition to Electromancer you have Baral, Chief of Cumpleaños , Arcane Melee , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , and Curious Homunculus  Flip for creatures. There're also the Medallion artifacts( Sapphire , Emerald , and Ruby ) and Jace's Sanctum is an enchantment that also has you scry 1 each time you cast an instant or sorcery. You can also look at As Foretold , Throes of Chaos , and Maelstrom Wanderer as ways to get "free" spells so you can use the mana that the spells cost to instead copy them. You're also going to want more mana acceleration so you can cast multiple spells or utilize multiple copy effects the best dorks are Rattleclaw Mystic , BoP , and Sylvan Caryatid and for 2CMC rocks you have the Signets( Izzet , Simic , and Gruul ) and the Talismans ( Creativity , Curiosity , and Impulse ). If you don't want to rely on artifacts for ramp since they don't synergize with Riku Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are pretty much auto-includes for G ramp spells, and Nature's Lore , Farseek , and Skyshroud Claim to get non-basic Forests into play faster, this does mean you'll need more non-basic Forests so you should get Breeding Pool , Stomping Ground , and Sheltered Thicket . Once you have costs down you can focus on the value you get out of your spells an easy way is looking at Twiddle effects like Rewind , Frantic Search , Snap , and Unwind , similar to Peregrine Drake and Palinchron , they untap their costs worth of lands so when you copy them or reduce their costs they start to generate mana. Now that you've generated a stupid amount of mana you need things to do with it so you have Epic Experiment , Expropriate , Time Stretch , and Rishkar's Expertise for value and you can use Fireball , Fall of the Titans , Finale of Devastation , and Electrodominance to just straight up kill people. Additional ways to copy spells are Dualcaster Mage , Dual Casting , Repeated Reverberation , Bonus Round , and Increasing Vengeance and Echo Mage , and some added value effects you can use are Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Sunbird's Invocation .

SprkySprkyBoomMan Let me try to clarify that a bit. On Dual Casting , notice that on the card text, you could divide the card's text into two sides, parted by a :, and everything on the left side is what you must do to activate the ability, IE tap a creature/land, use mana, discard a card, etc, and if you fail to provide all the relevant resources, you can't activate the ability. Thus, unless you can untap the creature (their are a few that can untap themselves, but most have a cost), the effect can't be duplicated, since Dual Casting is on a specific creature.

After you activate an ability successfully, you attempt to do everything on the right side of the ability, and this is usually the pay out.

Another random question, let’s say I have a creature with Dual Casting on it already on the field. It’s my turn, I have 5 mountains in play then I play a Lightning Bolt , could I pay 4 mountains to copy it 4x?

Making a big impacting change:

Changed the 2 of Dual Casting into 2 of Narset's Reversal .

This will not only copy any instant, sorcery, but, when, if I use Snapcaster Mage to cast a instant, or sorcery spell from my graveyard, it will instead put the card into my hand, instead of exiling it.

Also when cast a instant, sorcery spell, it will copy it, then put it in hand, so that it doesnt go to graveyard, where would have to either use Noxious Revival to be able to get it vack, recast, reuse it, or would have to Snapcaster Mage it. I wouldnt have to do that, as it would go to my hand, instead of graveyard.

Also Narset, combo's great with Temporal Mastery miracle card.

Draw Temporal Mastery. Cast, play it(hopefully for its cheaper miracle cost), then use Narset to copy it, then Temporal Mastery goes to hand where can discard it to graveyard, then Noxious Revival put it on top of library, where it can be drawn, miracle cost cast again, then Snapcaster copied again, instead of Temporal Mastery getting exiled.

This means that can get a lot of extra turns over and over.

Also Narset's Reversal is just 2 blue, is instant speed(so can do it during opponents turn), and because its a instant, dont have to worry about it getting destroyed(artifact, creature, enchantment).

And I can use Noxious Revival, Snapcaster, and another Narset's Reversal to reuse Narset's Reversal over and over again.

Also since its a instant, it triggers Delver and Thing in the Ice  Flip better(Dual Casting as a enchantment, wouldnt trigger Delver, Thing in the Ice.

There is just so many combos, shenanigans, synergy, etc, with Narset's Reversal in deck.


Noxious Revival + Narset's Reversal.

Use Noxious Revival to put graveyard card to top of Library.

Narset copy it, Noxious Revival goes to hand.

Noxious Revival to put Narset on top of Deck. Noxious Revival goes to graveyard. Draw Narset.

Use Transformed Jace Planeswalker ir Snapcaster to flashlike cast Noxious Revival to put another card from graveyard to top of Library. Narset copy it, Noxious Revival goes to hand instead of being exiled.

Then Noxious get Narset back. Noxious goes to graveyard. Noxious gets another card back, Narset copy Noxious, Noxious goto hand.

Rinse, Wash Repeat over and over and over.

With this combo, you can put as many cards from graveyard on top of library as want, and be avle to reuse Noxioys and Narset as many times as want.

The only limit is mana, or life, as still have to pay mana, life to cast, so if run out of mana, or life, then that limits.

But other then that can always get Noxious Revival, Narset back, as many times as want, and can cast as many times as want, provided that have the mana, life to do so.

Just an amazing combos, synergy, and an amazing card to go in deck.

TypicalTimmy on Question about resolving the stack

Upon looking a second time, you can do something similar.

  • Cast Temporal Extortion
  • Inform players you would like to hold priority
  • Cast Narset's Reversal , targeting TE
  • your physical copy of TE is returned to your hand, and a copy of it is put onto the stack
  • Now you either get an extra turn, or someone loses 1/2 of their life while TE sits in your hand

And this works with any spell that copies, such as Twincast , Reverberate , the Expansion half of Expansion//Explosion, Dual Casting , or my personal favorite Howl of the Horde . While none of these return the spell, you do get to copy it. But you need to be clear you are holding priority so someone doesn't pay 1/2 life before you finish your setup.

Dual Casting , Bonus Round , Dualcaster Mage , Expansion / Explosion , Fork , Fury Storm , Increasing Vengeance , Insidious Will , Izzet Guildmage , League Guildmage , Nivix Guildmage , Reiterate and Repeated Reverberation all immediately win you the game with another instant or sorcery, Ral and your signature spell. You don't need all of these, bu adding some of the more budget-y options might be good. Most also work well with the rest of the deck. Just a thought.
