Dualcaster Mage Discussion
6 days ago
Hey there! Looks like a solid deck to me! There are a few cards that I would consider adding, though, mostly just EDH staples:
- Blasphemous Act
- Chaos Warp
- Reforge the Soul
- Temple of the False God
- Mind Stone
- Outpost Siege
- Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip
- Hammer of Purphoros
- Forgotten Cave
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Ogre Battledriver
- Faithless Looting
- Zealous Conscripts (goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki)
- Dualcaster Mage
- Magus of the Wheel
- Mana Geyser
- Burnished Hart
- Dictate of the Twin Gods
And then some cards that work particularly well with Purphoros:- Rakka Mar- Flameshadow Conjuring- Tooth and Claw- Pia and Kiran Nalaar- Goblin Warchief- Goblin Matron- Ogre Battledriver- Embermaw Hellion- Burn at the Stake- Goblin King
Some cards that I would consider cutting:
- Dragon Fodder
- Krenko's Command
- Fiery Gambit
- Molten Birth
- Thatcher Revolt
- Generator Servant
- Harsh Mentor
- Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
- Zurgo Bellstriker
In any case, sweet deck! Good luck!

Comparing this list to mine has got me thinking about quite a few things.
-All the fetch lands that work on mountains
-Moggcatcher (I know others have suggested this card, but Im not sure what you think about it)
What Id (maybe) cut:
-Reckless Bushwhacker Ive never had any luck with it.
-Magus of the Wheel is super good but it usually takes a turn to set up and then it still costs mana to use. However, I think its probably still better than Memory Jar. Of course, both of these are probably worth running. Im just a little salty cause all I have atm is Reforge the Soul.
-I think your artifact package should probably be cut. Due to artifacts being all over cEDH, Goblin Welder is really strong even without the other artifacts you have, but I dont see Daretti, Scrap Savant being useful for how slow he is.
What do you think about all this? Obviously some of my suggestions shouldnt go in your list and some of my cuts shouldnt be made, but Id love to know your thoughts regardless. Thanks for your thoughts!

I was considering cutting one of Rise or Legion, since they're so expensive, but I think Rise of the Dark Realms is actually better than Clone Legion, even though legion technically goes infinite with Dualcaster Mage. I play Rise in my Tasigur deck, and it generally wins every game I play it in due to the high amount of GY based decks in my meta.
Chromatic Lantern simply got moved to the maybeboard because I don't own one and they're over $10. This isn't a deck I'm wanting to slam a bunch of money on quite yet, so that's also the reasoning for Patron Wizard and Glen Elendra Archmage, and to a lesser extent Voidmage Prodigy. I own most cards in the list right now because I have the Inalla precon and pre-owned a lot of the cards here.
I think AEther Adept is probably cuttable. It just doesn't usually do enough. I usually look at it wishing it was a Hero's Downfall or Terminate instead, as games in my meta usually go long and having to recast a card isn't that big of a deal.
Dire Fleet Ravager is simply in there because I was looking for wizards with cool ETB effects, and he was new, so I threw him in. I haven't really gotten to testing him yet, but the more I look at him the more I think "I play this and immediately die to whatever's on the other end of the board" because at 40 life it brings me to 18, and I usually won't have a lot of dudes. So out he goes!
Similarly, Flesh Carver and Ghoulcaller Gisa were me looking for cool sac outlets that also happen to be wizards, like Viscera Seer, since I'm losing my tokens anyway. I already own Ghoulcaller Gisa, and although it is a wizard, it doesn't really benefit from one of our only real tribal synergy, Inalla's trigger, outside of turning a wizard into a zombie. She'll probably be cut. But I'm not so sure about Flesh Carver going away, since he can potentially get huge, and requires two removal spells, in addition to being able to use him multiple times a turn and his synergy with our reanimation effects to make more giant horrors.
Also, what are your thoughts on adding the Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind combos at the end of the description? Should I even bother? And which ones are best?

You should run Rite of Replication. Not only is it just a really sweet card that synergizes with Inalla, but it's also sort of an infinite combo with Dualcaster Mage. You cast Rite of Replication, then in response, cast Dualcaster Mage. You copy the Rite of Replication, then the copy resolves, copying Dualcaster Mage. The copy of the Dualcaster Mage enters the battlefield, and copies the original Rite of Replication that hasn't resolved, the copy makes another copy of the Dualcaster Mage, which copies Rite of Replication, etc. The problem is that the tokens don't have haste, so you either have to wait a full round of everyone trying to wrath and kill you, or give them haste (I'd suggest Anger if you're gonna do that.)
