Also you should consider Oblivion Ring or Fiend Hunter or Beast Within instead of Banishing Stroke.

Hey, so I've been play testing this deck a LOT.

I've made a few (not many) changes to my version and am looking into resolving a few issues.

So for my version I side-boarded 1x Diabolic Tutor and replaced it with a Beseech the Queen simply because of the mana cost.

I also side-boarded 1x Echoing Calm and replaced it with a Scour and also side-boarded another scour. This is mostly because I want to destroy all basic lands in my opponent's deck with the Enchanted Evening combo and I also have a few friends that play Relentless Rats decks that this would basically be a wincon for. I figured I could tutor for the Scour if need be.

I've also side-boarded Reveillark and Fiend Hunter to use as a backup to the Cataclysm Engine combo as they create the same infinite combo for Blasting Station and at one less mana cost. I've won a few games by putting these guys in and side-boarding the 4x Ajani's Chosen and 2x Enchanted Evening, people don't seem to feel as threatened by this combo as the other one.

Now, my really only issue with this deck so far is that it seems to be very slow (or at least there is something I'm failing to understand) The Pariah+Stuffy Doll combo is godlike, but Stuffy Doll requires 5 mana and Pariah another 3, so that means turn 6 is like the earliest I can get this combo out IF I don't miss a mana drop.. Is there something I'm missing there?

Mana has been really the biggest issue for me so far, especially getting Stuffy Doll and Enchanted Evening out.

My questions for you are:

1.) How do you get past the slow mana state that I seem to be running into?

2.) Could you go through what you'd consider your perfect game, turn by turn? Like opening hand with certain cards/lands up until you get the Cataclysm Engine out? I'm just looking to sync with your thought process.

I'm definitely in love with this deck's play-style and I'm looking to take it to competition and/or make it as competitive as possible. Thanks for your insight!

dlamars "At the beginning of your upkeep" are the important words there.

You can't cast it during your untap phase (unless you give it flash somehow), so it won't be on the battlefield to check for counters at the beginning of your upkeep.

Dark Depths doesn't use the words "at the beginning of your upkeep". It says "when Dark Depths has no ice counters on it..." so it continually checks throughout the game for said ice counters.

The wording on a card is one of the most important clues to what exactly the card does.

Hope that helped :)

zelian12 Good ideas! I'm having a bit of trouble understanding the infinite combo with cards like Karmic Guide and Reveillark with Fiend Hunter and a sac card like Blasting Station.. Could you explain it to me like the dumby I am? haha.

Hey, this is a great idea. Could you explain exactly how this Fiend Hunter+Karmic Guide+Blasting Station combo works so I can wrap my brain around it.. So when I play it I can explain it properly? Haha

I had a similar deck that had blink synergies for value but could also combo off. Some combinations of Karmic Guide, Reveillark, Saffi Eriksdotter, Sun Titan, and Fiend Hunter along with a sac outlet let you go infinite

As for cuts, I think you need more ramp and fewer high drops. Try Farhaven Elf. It also might be worth running Emeria Shepherd as it's good on its own and goes 'infinite' with Sakura-Tribe Elder or farhaven + sac outlet.

Maybe run Tezzeret the Seeker to -4 to grab birthing pod/panharmonicon bc of how broken they are
