Essence Flux Discussion

Yea was toying with the idea of that card but I couldn't bring myself to cut any of the other ones haha I tried playing without Bygone Bishop but I like that card too much for some reason.

I'll try playing a few games with Spectral Shepherd just to try it out but I can get the same effect from Essence Flux

Thanks for the input mate!

I completely agree with the idea that I need more Essence Fluxes but I'm going to playtest cutting 1x Cryptic Command for another one and see how that plays out. Also I know what you're saying about Kataki, War's Wage but I don't think that running Disenchant or Stony Silence instead is the right choice. I play against affinity a lot so I'm just cutting 1x for another Supreme Verdict for now.

stormydragon, thanks for the feedback. In the original build I was using Always Watching which was cool, however I'm trying to get the deck as cheap as possible so I replaced them with Essence Flux. I know it's not that good but for now it's all I have in my collection. However, if I find myself in a verter situation I'll try to add Always Watching back. Do you think it's a good idea?

Some tips: Stasis Snare is better than Cast Out, im not sure what Always Watching does for you... in my opinion Spell Queller doesnt need four copies, maybe 2 or three, increase the Metallic Mimics for them. I would recommend Essence Flux, and I would also recommend Panharmonicon to make the most of the etb's :)

Gross, gonna get lots of aggro with this commander but shes dang good

No Fatestitcher?

Also, in any "tap" commander deck,Thousand-Year Elixir is nuts, as are flickers/untaps like Cloudshift, Essence Flux, Ghostly Flicker and especially Tawnos's Coffin

I would go down to 3 always watching and 3 cast out then add 2 Essence Flux so you can flicker caracal if he's targeted and add more tokens.

I've been working on something really similar to this for about a year now. I originally didn't go all the way spirit tribal, u/w control with Scatter to the Winds/Halimar Tidecaller shenanigans. I have since rotating out of origins and dragons, moved to a pure spirit-tribal tempo. I think we could help each other figure out want we want with this archetype. I haven't updated my deck to reflect what it currently looks like on tappedout, but the principal (reacting to your opponent and playing off of them) is still the same. I believe that Censor could be really strong, and that a late game Pull from Tomorrow could be devastating to the opponent. I personally run Always Watching , Rattlechains, Essence Flux, and have been trying some Torrential Gearhulk. I understand those cards wouldn't fully work with your choices, but I think Rattlechains could definitely help. Imagine, if even spirits worked as instants, the amount of pressure the opponent would feel knowing that they are not the only ones playing spells on their turn. On a serious note, I really like that idea of holding up mana and playing mind games with your opponent, and having additional outs with cycle is pretty powerful. Just tell me one thing; why Thraben Inspector?
