Finale of Promise Discussion

thinkoriginal, first of all, thank you a lot for sharing your thoughts on the list!

I see your point on Finale of Promise , but I'm still assessing if it's clunky enough to cut it. I think that with the right timing it's okay and it is easy for the deck to fill the graveyard so for the moment I won't invest on another Brazen Borrower .

Apart from that, I'm also keen on Fiery Temper , and I don't understand why the trend lately is to cut it, as you said, it's Chart a Course and Lightning Axe 's best friend (but at the same time I find it hard to make room for it in the list :s ). The spell I'm the less convinced of is Strategic Planning although it gets you a card, it can toss Phoenixes to the graveyard, and fuels delve... so I'm definitely trying that 3-1 split you commented.

Finally, when it comes to the sb I have to admit that it's been a mess, since every list I've seen so far has been different from the others. So what I'd like to know are the proportions of the different answers that I should carry (this many counters, this much removal...), and then I'll chose the options with which I feel the most confident... I hope i'm explaining myself.

Hahaha yeah I know Anger of the Gods is bonkers... the question here is: is it better than Sweltering Suns ? 'cause they do basically the same except that this one is more flexible and it plays better with Arclight Phoenix ... unless exiling opponent's creatures is worth the nombo.

This list looks really good. I've been running something very similar, with the only difference being that I cut Finale of Promise for a third Brazen Borrower , as Finale was good when I wasn't casting Treasure Cruise , and pretty rough when I was. I also cut one Strategic Planning for a Fiery Temper . This is a personal call, but in conjunction with Lightning Axe / Chart a Course , it is very powerful.

As for the sideboard, I really like having both Chandras, as they are very good against UW Control. I'd cut the Scions (they seem better with a list that runs Bonecrusher Giant and Thing in the Ice  Flip, both which have performed only adequately) and either a Magma Spray or an Aether Gust , depending on how often you see things like Gruul or Mono-Black Aggro, Hardened Scales, etc.

Oh! I almost forgot one of my absolute favorite cards! Finale of Promise ! For starters, casting it midway through the storm will let you re-cast so many spells (provided they're X or less), and each spell it lets you cast from graveyard counts towards your TYS count. If you stack the triggers right, it'll basically win you the game. Also, Lightning Bolt . Because what's better than giving a 1 CMC, 3 damage spell storm and then recasting it from the yard again?

Here are some of the newer-released cards that I've added to my Mizzix deck (Note, I did not buy the precon, I built mine from scratch).

Backdraft Hellkite , Crackling Drake , Electrostatic Field , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Oneirophage , Curator's Ward , Electrodominance , Spell Swindle , Bond of Insight .

If you can afford them, also consider Finale of Revelation and Finale of Promise .

Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise seem really good; you want to be able to remove the dead cards from your deck so you don't shuffle them back in with Finale, and they draw you cards efficiently. Apex of Power seems like a worse Finale of Promise , I would cut it.

Courtney43 The point is to always put the two into the graveyard to fuel the strongest card in the deck, Treasure Cruise which is why this build and most builds of Phoenix have moved to 2-3 copies of Strategic Planning over Thrill of Possibility . As to Mission Briefing , it is an overall weak card that isn't as strong as Finale of Promise and finale has proven to not be good enough as long as Treasure Cruise is legal.

I have a deck that is much like this deck that I should post on here. But man i love this deck. Shit I love Torbran, thane of redfell, but might I suggest a Finale of Promise . It could be a game winning card if you have 12 mana, but even if you dont you still get some pretty good value out of it. Its a less better version of Thousand-Year Storm , but potentially game winning nonetheless.
