Encircling Fissure Discussion

Neilcifer on Do Nothing Bant

Repel the Abominable is much better since it also blocks burn/etc. I'd probably replace the Encircling Fissures though. Any other Amonkhet cards that would make this better?

Thx for the ideas, you definitely touched on some of the concerns I have. This deck is theory, debut at the Salinas, Calif. "GP" Sunday if I can make it

Card Draw is lacking and yes Providence is first on the chopping block.

Encircling Fissure is a one-sided fog with awaken 2 I like, and I was considering trying Seer's Lantern or Hedron Archive as sort of draw.

Oracle's Vault is also a weird consideration that could ramp with Inspiring Statuary and then cast free stuff and spin through the deck quicker.

But, maybe Pacification Array is good to go for more early game stall?

Thanks for the thoughts, the cycling disenchant would be ideal sideboard material as I havent begun to build one yet.

I've been keeping my ear to the ground for this deck and one thing I've seen be really effective is a Gideon of the Trials. The brew they had was much more fog based with Repel the Abominable, Encircling Fissure, and Haze of Pollen. They instead relied on Fevered Visions and Pull from Tomorrow for their draw and I didn't see any New Perspectives. Now I am by no means saying to overhaul your whole deck, just letting you know what I see people doing with Approach of the Second Sun so maybe you can use some of their work to makes yours better.

Of the cards I saw the guy use, Gideon of the Trials seems the most useful, but I'm not sure if you have the space for it.

Quarantine Field is excellent removal. If you want some more awaken spells try Clutch of Currents and Encircling Fissure.

This one is probably the best for your deck Terra Eternal making lands indestructible is super powerful!

Sigarda's Aid, Authority of the Consuls, Glint-Nest Crane

Those are Sram Deck musts to begin with. Whir of Invention is unnecessary usually but as a 1 of to find an aetherflux reservoir I understand it. I would lose the Inspiring Statuary completely if your deck isn't going to change much from what you have listed here. It's not doing much for you. At all.

Why not try a few good aura spells? Conviction is great with ornithopter. Or run things like Ice Over, Spontaneous Mutation, and Tightening Coils for a control field.

You'll do well in standard. Your control is heavy but easy to play and can help buy time for your combo. Maybe try a couple Turn Aside in side board. Or Encircling Fissure as a white fog. There are better cards. Those are just easy to get.

Thanks LCJ38 and Verado

I agree that Repel the Abominable is a great card - I think I'll run four of those instead of Encircling Fissure. The Awaken isn't going to come into play often enough to matter I think. I also think I'll put all four Negate into the main to protect my Dynavolt Towers and Consulate Surveillances.

Find a way to get more cards.... You need 4 Toolcraft Exemplar for red and white vehicles. You need at least one more depala as well. But the exemplar should come first.

Also, Built to Smash is great. and Start Your Engines will typically play better than Siege modification just because it's for your whole field and it's not a double red mana cost.

In my budget vehicles I ran one copy of Encircling Fissure just for an "oh crap" scenario. It saved my but a few times.

I have been thinking about using some fogs recently myself. I think there are some awesome ones that you are missing still. Specifically ones that can kill creatures if you have blockers.
