Enduring Ideal Discussion

+1 just for the name. I wish I could give +2 for the South Park reference, but alas only a +1. Only suggestion I have is maybe you could go the Enduring Ideal route since you have so much mana from Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. If you do go with Ideal, you might want to consider Paradox Haze if only to tutor for it with Ideal so it can get out of hand faster.

I had thought to do this myself but never followed through, looks pretty good. You might consider Enduring Ideal and Paradox Haze to go with it, 2 free enchantments every turn granted you won't be able to use anything other than enchants after the ideal. I would definitely take advantage of the gods being indestructible by including more field wipes, around 5 is the fewest I would run for this kind of thing. With so many enchants the enchantresses would be great too. Your colors could be difficult but the actual curve is low so some ramp is always needed but you may have gone overboard on that, I like to run around 10 non-land mana sources.

Yeah, I've been deciding whether to make it an Enduring Ideal deck or not. I'm just now slowly building it and I will definitely test it out!

I know it's not ~that~ kind of deck, but this deck is 4 Enduring Ideal away from being an Enduring Ideal deck.

Good Morning ahraines9............ You do realize that when you use Proteus Staff for the second time it reorganizes your library to ANY way you want. Now if you put all 5 epics in the top 6 cards and deal combat damage you will GASP have ALL 5 on the STACK at the SAME TIME (WOW!!!) so when Hellcarver Demon triggers, they will all exile at the same time and you can ONLY cast them during the damage step of combat. So because hellcarver's trigger says "You May Cast..." that means if you DON'T cast one or more, and then you move to your main phase, they remain exiled and you don't get the chance to cast them again.

In regards to Proteus Staff and how it "doesn't stack the deck like you want it to" you do realize that instead of putting tazri on the bottom of your library, you can move it to the command zone and there is STILL ONLY ONE CREATURE (I wonder who it is...) so now GASP AGAIN you get to reorganize your library with anything you want on top on your second activation of proteus staff.

SO... now that that is settled, you may be thinking, "but hey stupid idiots, you can still die easily before you can do anything" and to that I say "hey stupider idioter, did you know that can happen in any game of magic and it's not specific to this deck? Wow!" Also your small mind may not understand this, but when you cast Enduring Ideal, it will get you a Paradox Haze, and on your next upkeeps you get to have a Solemnity as well as a Decree of Silence. Now if you still think we're going to die, I invite you to name a realistic scenario where this won't completely lock your opponents out of the game. If you manage to think of one, then good for you, we'll take our chances against a one in a thousand counter to that scenario.

Now, if you really want to try and one-up this deck by making one that relies on putting 5 epics, a vedalken orrery, and an omniscience into your hand, then have fun taking 10 turns to do nothing but tutor only to realize you've been killed by someone playing an actual deck. We made this deck in good fun and banter, so of course we're not looking for turn 2 wins in competitive magic like you seem to think is what we're going for. If you're going to point out a flaw in a deck using mechanics that are completely foreign to you, maybe do your research, because we sure did, and we know it works.

Wyrdling on Ideally this Modern Deck Would be Epic

Enduring ideal has been a win con in my edh deck for a couple years now, the first card out is always Possibility Storm as it doesn't effect Enduring Ideal

That is a pretty good combination, but I think it's in the wrong colours for this deck. I know I can get pretty much any enchantment through Enduring Ideal, but two off colour spells seems a bit too high risk. Thanks for the suggestion though.


I have been looking at As Foretold as it was originally described to me as Aether Vial for spells. In that regard I thought it would be a way to get around the 'Epic' restriction of Enduring Ideal, but unfortunately it doesn't as the spells are still cast.

I agree the synergy with Ancestral Vision is excellent, but at the moment I don't think there is a place for it in the deck, mostly because I don't own any copies of that $50 card!! I have seen it played in a pretty good deck along with Restore Balance, Greater Gargadon and Living End so definitely respect it's power.

Thanks again for the comment.
