I would recommend cutting one of your Wall of Omens for a Wurmcoil Engine. I think this would help speed up your games into more decisive wins as you can reoccur it with your Eternal Witnesses and apply constant pressure. Hope it helps

Well the combo with Cryptic Command and Eternal Witness is that you can use it far more than twice or three times. Using Cryptic Command's bounce ability, you return Eternal Witness back to your hand, and then use the tap or counter ability to then lock down your opponent. Cryptic Command can then be brought back to your hand by playing the Eternal Witness you just bounced and you can do it every turn. That is why the list from Toronto plays the Aether Vials -- to not only be able to play Eternal Witness on your opponent's turn, but to do so at instant speed. You also only have to pay for the Cryptic Command, as Aether Vial will play Eternal Witness for free. I do not play Aether Vials (as I think they can be fragile -- and is just another permanent that I need to protect for three turns before it becomes a win con), but that is where Alchemist's Refuge plays a role. It obviously requires a much higher mana investment -- but is not beyond the question with how controlling this list can be. I also find the alchemist's refuge interaction also plays nice with Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip as the spells I play off of it count as a cast (Eternal Witness + Cryptic Command = 2 spells to flip Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip) -- whereas playing Eternal Witness off of Aether Vial does not count as a cast.

Just realised Eldritch Evolution exiles itself. That unfortunately makes Eternal Witness and Greenwarden of Murasa a lot worse.

Thanks! I have considered adding another Eternal Witness recently. A Temur deck very similar to this recently took down a 170 person event in Toronto. Main difference is that it ran 3 witnesses and a playset of Aether Vial. I am not keen on vial for my list as it is set up for a long control game. But another witness to set up that combo wouldnt be bad.

gavinjoaquinolivas - Thanks for the comment. This deck has mainly been W/U in the past, and just recently, black was added for Athreos. However, when I saw Renegade Rallier get released a couple weeks ago, I knew it had to go into the deck - it's like a mini Sun Titan!! The addition of green also makes Sakura-Tribe Elder, Eternal Witness, and Seal of Primordium possible... which are pretty strong here.

I'll prolly stay with at least 3 Renegade Rallier. Revolt is easily triggered with 6 fetches, Mortarpod, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Ghost Quarter, etc. The value bringing back any permanent cmc2 or less (including lands) is too big not to be in this deck.

Wolfninja on Selling some stuff

Lately I just haven't been playing magic very much, so I've decided that I'm gonna try and sell some of the more valuable cards I have, but don't really use/need. So, here's a list of them (with what I'd like to sell them for):

Foil Ravnica Doubling Season $85

2x Liliana, the Last Hope $30 each, $55 for both

2x Torrential Gearhulk $18 each, $30 for both

Foil Khans Flooded Strand $35

Foil Modern Masters Eternal Witness $12

Grim Flayer $18

Craterhoof Behemoth $20

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar $10

4x Khans Flooded Strand $11 each, $36 for all

Chinese (?) Future Sight Summoner's Pact $12

I will also offer a $2 discount for each buying the above cards in bulk, unless it's already priced as a set. For example you're interested in the 4x Flooded Strand, it will not count for each of those because I'm already discounting the price if you get all 4. If you wanted them and Nissa for example, I would discount $2 on the Nissa.

Here are some more lower value ones, I will discount $1 each for buying cards in bulk, again not if it's already being discounted for the set:

2x Foil Modern Master 2015 Remand

2x Birds of Paradise, one is 8th edition the other is M12, $7 and $4 respectively, $8 for both.

Phyrexian Metamorph $6

Hangarback Walker $5

Foil Worldwake Dispel $7

Relentless Dead $4

2x Foil Den Protector, one is prerelease foil, $8 for both

Normal Foil Cinder Glade$5

Foil Temple of Epiphany $5

4x Game Trail $4 each, $12 for all

3x Atarka's Command $6 each, $15 for all

2x M15 Chord of Calling $6 each, $10 for both

2x Mirrodin Duplicant $4 each, $6 for both

4x Abrupt Decay $7 each, $22 for all

Spirebluff Canal $7

Sulfur Falls $6

2x Collected Company $9 each, $15 for both

Emrakul, the Promised End $8

2x Kolaghan's Command $7 each, $12 for both

Free shipping on all orders, I will ship in a padded envelope with tracking if the value is high enough (probably over $40?). Also, I would prefer to sell them bulked together, so I won't do orders less than $10 and would prefer they be over $20. PayPal preferred, and will be the only thing I accept on high value orders. I believe all of them are good condition, a couple might be lightly played but no worse than that, I can provide pictures of any of them if wanted. I can answer any questions and might be open to negotiating price as well.
