Fact or Fiction Discussion

zwells3 on Dr. Whoona, Queen of the Bae

Triton, Rzepkanut, and Ash3n... thanks for the suggestions! I have picked up Frantic Search, Dispel, Shadow of Doubt, and Slaughter Pact. I've also grabbed a Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip and plan on cutting Beseech the Queen, Perplex, Fact or Fiction, and an Island. For now, Slaughter Pact is sort of in a sideboard position as I don't see any obvious cut. Any thoughts?

I'm moving cities soon and so will be a joining a new club and therefore meta. So I don't have any information on their decks as of yet...

Thanks again!

Cabal Ritual, Ponder, Preordain, or Second Sunrise? I also think Herald of Kozilek is an often overlooked card in this deck imo. Also maybe the red rituals would help.

As for cuts, I think Whir of Invention seems a tad greedy for mana, but reconsider it after testing.Sphinx's Revelation falls under the same reason as well. Whispering Madness and Reforge the Soul can probably be cut because you already have Windfall and Wheel of Fortune. I've also personally never liked Fact or Fiction, as giving your opponent choices isn't usually a good idea.

Also the land base could be improved by taking out the tapped lands. Outside of the ABUR lands, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Spire of Industry are all amazing in this deck and deserve a spot.

Hope this helps!

Looks good, one of the only cuts I can see is Fact or Fiction. While I do love its effect, letting your opponent choose is pretty bad in a vacuum usually. So I was playing in a 4-person pod and I use FoF, giving it to my friend. He puts the one combo card in a pile and the rest in a pile. I'm forced to pick one card and the only two cards were Gamble and another card or two that I didn't care about. Moral of the story is, it's usually done more bad than good, or I should play less degenerate decks, ooooor my friends are butts. Either way, Fact or Fiction is the only card I can see going on the chopping block. Perplex seems also like a meh tutor imo, since you have the two black tutors and Mystical Tutor.

As for replacements, Dispel has saved my butt quite a handful of times, and perhaps a "free" spell such as Frantic Search to help filter through your deck.

Hope this helps!

Avulth on Jhoira of the Ghitu commander

Is Flamekin Harbinger just for Guile? If so, have you found that to be worth doing most of the time? I play Jhoira a lot and one thing that I have found is that it's tough to be as efficient as your opponents. Expensive rocks will achieve this, as well as more extra turn spells. Another route is to go for more deck manipulation. You have Serum Visions and Preordain, but could also go for Brainstorm, Preordain, Fact or Fiction, Impulse, or even Telling Time if you're digging really deep. You can also embrace the long-game and go for tempo effects. My favorites there are Kederekt Leviathan, Wash Out, and Whelming Wave.

Avulth on Jhoira, Big Creatures

My advice would be to cut down the creatures that you're only planning on casting with Jhoira out and that can't win the game on their own. Examples of this are Tidespout Tyrant or Breaker of Armies. They're strong cards but if you need to suspend them with something else they become much too clunky. I also want to echo jon_hill987's board wipe suggestions, although Curse of the Swine could still be strong removal on a budget. You could also look into ways to protect the board while you get yourself going, because this isn't the fastest deck. Options here include Wash Out and Whelming Wave. If you're already running Steam Augury, it's probably worth considering Fact or Fiction. Finally, it doesn't look like you're running enough non-creatures to justify Arcane Melee. It might just make your match-up with more specialized control decks even worse.

Setting up a good Intuition is an art, similar to the way that setting up a good Fact or Fiction is. "Which card do I need? What card does my opponent think I need? What will my opponent prioritize?"

The nice thing about Intuition in this deck (as I see it) is that the win condition is based on the interaction between Eternal Scourge or Misthollow Griffin and Food Chain, and you have two functionally identical tutors to search them out in Manipulate Fate and Foresight. That means you can search out those two and Noxious Revival to ensure that you get it. Or just go directly for the two creatures and Noxious Revival, depending upon the situation. That's my take on it.

Also, if someone is about to win, you can intuition for an answer and ask another player to give you that answer. It's a quite versatile card, I find.

BolasFucks on The Scarab God Makes His Triumphant Entrance

Thanks Hata98 for the quick reply. I haven't played against Saffi but the ability definitely seems like something that can do very broken things.

As far as the flying have you considered playing Eldrazi Monument? It's 5 mana but would give your zombie army flying AND indestructible, while the "downside" of having to sacrifice a creature each turn is minimized by the deck's recursion theme.

Also, I feel like truly competitive fast combo decks are problematic for everyone so that doesn't worry me too much. I noticed you only have one instant in the deck which is Fact or Fiction. Have you considered swapping some of the more expensive cards that play a redundant role in the deck (for example Grave Betrayal for early interaction like Negate, Dispel, etc? It seems like a waste to have access to blue and make no use of it.

Two cards I'm really enjoying are Fact or Fiction and Mimic Vat. Do you find that using a card like Extract from Darkness makes you too much of a target?
