Echoing Truth Discussion
1 day ago
Cryptic Command feels pretty out of place in a tempo deck; maybe Unsubstantiate ? Skred could also be a consideration over Roast , depending on your meta -- or, just move Roast to the SB, since it can often be a dead draw. Burst Lightning or similar might be a reasonable consideration.
One other possibility; Mission Briefing over Snappy-Do. Pros and cons; Briefing flips Delver, but Snap has the body. Snap is probably better overall, but it's a consideration.
Looks fun. Cheers!

A few minor changes I can suggest: Instead of Winds of Rebuke , I would rather play Echoing Truth . I realize that it can start your combo, but you have so many activators anyway that it likely will never matter. Echoing Truth has several upsides, being able to very efficiently answer Lingering Souls and Empty the Warrens as well as just answering something like a Rest in Peace as suggested earlier.
I'm not sure if this is a budget deck or not, but historically, decks that are a blue/x 2-card combo decks like being a control deck until they assemble their combo and win, prime example being Splinter Twin. I think Sword Combo did around the same thing. For this reason I like playing 4 copies of Cryptic Command if possible. If this is a budget, it's totally understandable why you wouldn't include this.
As someone pointed out earlier, Bloodchief Ascension was part of the combo and would be interesting, however it would be hard to activate. But on interesting implication this has is if you ran Search for Azcanta Flip with Ascension and Mindcrank as your combo, you could run a control shell as stated before, and then search for more answers or hunt out your combo pieces. I think if you turned this deck into a Grixis deck, it would be very effective at killing your opponent with the combo, as you can activate Ascension with Lightning Bolt or Kolaghan's Command .
Overall, the combo is really cool and it will be really fun if you bring this to an event an see how it goes!

Also, I'd be most concerned about Echoing Truth, as it sees play more than Declaration in Stone. The key there is most likely not overextending your board. Also, declaration is pretty favorable for your deck if you can force it early. Card advantage is great.

This is a possibility Chaos Wand just because you can and to be funny
Also Cyclonic Rift I think Devastation Tide is a better card as while as Echoing Truth because echo can purge tokens and if you chain it with a card like this Polymorphist's Jest you can really ruin a day
and Doublecast more spell copy possibility

Oh and maybe Echoing Truth for the sideboard against weenies. And something to combat aura hexproof and protection and stuff like that.
I like the idea too, so I hope some of that helps. Let me know how it performs. =)

Paying 1 colorless and 2 life (or no life if I have Manamorphose) to protect Thing or Drake (or even a good Isochron setup) is well worth it. I don't lose more than 3-4 life to shocks and fetches in the average game, so losing 2 more isn't a big deal, especially with so many of my recent games coming down to one turn.
I think this is a great way to round out the sideboard (or even mainboard in place of Echoing Truth?), and compliments the Spellskites that are already there for a similar purpose. It also helps a lot with Wurmcoil Engine, Engineered Explosives, Oblivion Stone. I could even use Liquimetal Coating to protect Blood Moon from removal, or a land from Ponza. It can even go on the Isochron!
Let me know what you think!
