Elsewhere Flask Discussion

Check out my eggs deck. I've been testing it vor a very long time and find Banefire to be fantastic, since there's nothing you can do about it. You can also potentially win without comboing against decks like Death Shadow.

a few thoughts on your questions:
- use Pyrite Spellbomb as a backup win condition.
- I personally use Elsewhere Flask, Everflowing Chalice, or Prophetic Prism since they don't particularly help. For one, Elsewhere Flask and Prophetic Prism draw on ETB, not leave, so there is a higher chance that you will mill yourself out accidentally with a faith's reward. Everflowing Chalice is just bad in an eggs list, because we can use it for mana, but then it doesn't come back with the counters after a Faith's Reward. In order for it to be good, you should have enough mana to just win outright.
- I personally use Ghost Quarter because it nets mana, but either works. maybe both.

So I've been thinking about building Eggs (a.k.a. Sunnyside Up), and here's the list I have so far in my head:

A few things I'm having trouble deciding:
Ghost Quarter vs. Flooded Strand: Ghost Quarter generates more mana with Faith's Reward, as well as the option of being used defensively vs. manlands or Tron. Flooded Strand offers a more consistent mana base.
How many copies of Whir of Invention and Reshape. Whir of Invention is especially easy to cast in the turns leading up to when you combo off because you can tap all your eggs to power out Krark-Clan Ironworks. Reshape runs into problems when you need to save eggs and don't want to sacrifice them, even if it means powering out Lotus Bloom.
Number of win conditions. Right now, I'm just using Codex Shredder to go infinite with Faith's Reward. There's the option of Bitter Ordeal and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. I'm not really a fan of Banefire in Eggs because it doesn't do much on its own.
Elsewhere Flask, Everflowing Chalice, Prophetic Prism, and Thoughtcast are Eggs staples, but I didn't have room in this build. Thoughts on any of these? Worth cutting some cards to make room? Thoughtcast and Prophetic Prism are especially good.

If I remove all red cards, are the 3 Abundant Growth still relevants? They provide card draw, a target for Quiet Disrepair and can help fuel Pestilence in the end game. Maybe replace them with 1 Elsewhere Flask and 2 Alchemist's Vial?

Looks good! Some comments by card:
Clock of Omens - Cool tech for tapping down Winter Orb, I might have to consider running that myself.
Elsewhere Flask, Ichor Wellspring - I ran these in earlier builds of the deck and they ended up getting cut. They always underperformed. Eggs that are just eggs and nothing else don't strike me as particularly valuable for Glissa.
Buried Ruin - Another early cut. Redundancy for Glissa's ability isn't worth giving up colored mana.
Forbidden Orchard - This is just a great idea, and I'm definitely putting it into my deck. Lets Glissa Mindslaver-lock any deck, even one that's not creature heavy.
Grim Backwoods - Another early cut. Maybe your build wants it as you're a bit more creature heavy, and it works well with your Junk Diver and Myr Retriever.
Temple of the False God - I'm not a believer in this card. Too often it's just a dead draw.
Disciple of the Vault - I'm not convinced that this guy's worth it here.

Reflecting Pool will add colorless due to colorless being a type of mana. Command Tower on the other hand will not produce any mana. As for the absence mana rocks, I figure this deck is just trying to steer well clear of any well defined lines of play! Rings of Brighthearth is a good one though.
Anyway, some weird suggestions to keep with the experimental theme of the deck:

i have been testing my own modern eggs deck, and i really like Flooded Strand over Adarkar Wastes, i also run Mox Opal because it helps the combo so much. i ran elsewhere flask for a while, but i realized Terrarion was much better than Elsewhere Flask because it helps with the affinity for artifacts on Thoughtcast.

If you want to run more creatures Reckless Bushwhacker/Goblin Bushwhacker swarms are in vogue right now, and with good reason, its a good strategy, it works. I just pulled Denizen because it was the first thing to come to mind, but Monastery Swiftspear would be better IMO.I've had some success running quite a similar deck- Traditional face burn, and Darksteel Citadel is remarkably effective as a sacrifice.
I've had a look and I think Ichor Wellspring might be the problem- don't get me wrong, it is a fantastic card, but in terms of what it does? it turns Shrapnel Blast and Kuldotha Rebirth into cantrips for an extra two mana, but a set of reverberate would double their immediate damage, and the browbeat does provide solid card draw.
The question is this- do you want to kill them asap, or kill them efficiently midgame. You need the artifact enablers, and splashing another colour with Terrarion, Elsewhere Flask or Prophetic Prism might provide and insane midrange damage/card advantage strategy combined with something like Trail of Evidence- running both Darksteel Citadel and Boom/Bust might be worth consideration. Running more token producers to take advantage of the signal pests might be fun. Just test it and see what you think it needs.
