Eyes Everywhere Discussion
2 months ago
After a quick glance if you were to remove two for a couple removal I'd suggest Tidings since you already have a bunch of card-draw / top-or-deck-manipulation cards and (depending on your local meta) Eyes Everywhere. I'm assuming you're using it moreso for the scry trigger than the activated ability.

DanowarElf - Eyes Everywhere could be handy, I just need to figure out if it's better than another card in the list. The scry only at upkeep means I get to fix my draws, but it doesn't help my bigger aim of trying to keep the top card something I can cast using Elsha of the Infinite. As for Blasphemous Act, it's a great boardwipe in red, but since I am playing white, I opted for Supreme Verdict, which is non-conditional and cannot be countered, and Day of Judgment and Time Wipe which can deal with wide boards from opponents but let me keep a useful creature like Elsha of the Infinite herself or something like Niv-Mizzet, Parun or Monastery Mentor. Also, Cyclonic Rift clears only my opponents things, and gets rid of noncreatures as well, all at instant speed, thus warranting that as worthwhile. Blasphemous Act is a fine include, but I haven't found myself missing it so far, and if I needed another boardwipe I would probably add Wrath of God first.
I generally prefer the talismans over the signets, as the mana is usable on its own. If you cast a talisman and you have no lands untapped, and then the next card on top of your deck is something like Ponder or Sol Ring or Brainstorm, you can cast it too. Not the case with the signets. Also, if you had say two islands and a Talisman of Conviction and needed to play Narset, Parter of Veils, that's no problem. If the talisman was a Boros Signet, however, you couldn't cast the Narset. That may not be the best example, because you can argue the other way too; if you need to cast a spell with RW in its cost and you have two islands and a talisman, no can do. Was just the best example I could think of off the top of my head. The difference between the two is very small though, and the downside of needing to pay 1 life if you need a specific color is irrelevant in 90%+ of cases.

I like this list! It might seem janky, but I'd recommend Eyes Everywhere for the free scry every turn plus the ability to cast itself off the top with your commander. I was going to recommend Thassa, God of the Sea, but it's a creature and it won't likely hit the devotion requirement... Two questions: 1) Are you afraid of using board wipes like Blasphemous Act because of your commander? 2) How are the talismans working out for you instead of the typical signets? Curious to hear what you say!

"The exchange of the control of two permanents is something that that colour can do at Rare and higher"
Not that this is relevant to the main point of the article, but blue can exchange permanents at uncommon as well: Switcheroo , Eyes Everywhere , Vedalken Plotter , Shrewd Negotiation , Shifting Loyalties , Legerdemain , and Shifting Borders .

Just some straight upgrades I can see while keeping some budget in mind is
Young Pyromancer could be a good add to make more tokens and it costs less to get out than your other token makers.
I've found in my own Izzet deck that mana ramp really needs to be a big part of your deck since you don't ramp easily. I use Curious Homunculus Flip since he can tap for mana and flips into a prowess creature that reduces mana cost.
Tutors are always good to add and Long-Term Plans is a tutor in blue that will let you search for any card and not need to reveal it.
Expansion / Explosion is a good card since it will let you copy a spell or act as a big blow out spell if you have nothing else to do.
One card that I love that synergies with Thousand year storm is Baral's Expertise since if you get copies of it then you are bouncing tons of stuff back to people's hands and getting free casts into the storm.

Also other blue cards I like Cyclonic Rift and I love Echoing Truth it is great for a token sweeper and if you can pair it with Polymorphist's Jest you return all their creatures to hand. Also Swan Song is a nice spell and I would really suggest Isochron Scepter because you can cast counterspell over and over again. Underrated fun Eyes Everywhere trade and then play a return to hand card on it and you get it back and you get a scry but it is quite funny when you pull it off.
