Flood of Recollection Discussion

BioProfDude on Drowned Secrets - Mill Deck

Before someone points it out, yes, Mission Briefing is superior to Flood of Recollection, and the surveil 2 is really nice (as is instant-speed). Nevertheless, Flood of Recollection will be at least a nice placeholder until you get Mission Briefing. Same basic effect, just not quite as powerful overall.

Agreed, it doesnt work with cost effectiveness as a burn spell would. Too bad Lost Legacy rotated out otherwise a deck with Mission Briefing, Flood of Recollection as well as Unmoored Ego would make a great game lock out deck. Maybe it would be better in Modern as you can Surgical Extraction and typically they run 4 offs of cards.

Ahhh that could be a stumbling block.

Flood of Recollection would allow you to return an instant or sorcery or if you could come up with a way to flicker or copy something like Auramancer A combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker would allow you to go infinite turns but I feel like that’s slightly coming away from the decks point.

cdkime , I cant agree more with wat you pointed out. Its a funny thing playing a true mill game. Gotta slow play sometimes up to 4 mana then lay on the surprise fray ,Mind Sculpt, Tome Scour, and end the match in that turn or the next. Nothings better tho than getting 2 Fray on board and they dont pay attention..lol. I I can cast a free Archive Trap , Then Flood of Recollection to cast it again free, and maybe a spare Tome Scour also.. Thats there library gone couple times over. But.. I think 2 color mill can be fun also, imma try sometime.

Think Twice would be a good replacement for Flood of Recollection

Flood of Recollection really should be Snapcaster Mage or nothing at all.

I strongly recommend more land in the form of Faerie Conclave and Ghost Quarter/Field of Ruin.

More cantrips are really needed to support such a low mana base.

I think you need a few more creatures - about 11 or 12 total. The reason is, that you really want one on your opening hand, and you can't really be sure of that until you have 11 or 12 creatures. If you don't have a creature, you have to hold out, while waiting for one, and could easily have spent a lot of you cheaper cards waiting 3 or 4 turns... and then neither delver, nor TitI are any good.

My suggestions: Add 2 Nimble Obstructionist, and 2 Judge's Familiar. A Faerie Conclave wouldn't be bad either. To make room for them, you could drop the 2 Insidious Will (I know, they have a secondary function in being pitched to Disrupting Shoal, but still 4 mana is awfully much for a 17 land manabase, also when counting in cantrips), a Remand and a Flood of Recollection. I'm not so impressed with Remand in modern - spending 2 mana on sending a 1 cmc discard or removal spell back to hand just doesn't feel like a winning move, not even with the cantripping. And Flood of Recollection just isn't good. You spend 2 mana in your turn, to get a card back in hand. My guess is that you'll rarely have more than 4 lands in play, so playing it and keeping up mana for more than one counterspell is going to be a challenge. Most cards in modern cost 2 mana or less, so most opponents can drop one semi-important spell after your flood of recollection, and threaten to have one more... if you counter the first one, you're out of mana, and they play the next spell. If you let the first spell go, no more spells will follow. You could exchange one of them for an Isochron Scepter, I guess.

Have you considered Spreading Seas for mainboard? It does give a pretty solid tempo-advantage against a lot of possible opponents, and some are really wrecked by it (getting 1 or 2 extra turns against tron can be really important).

Curse of the Swine can be a pretty surprising card out of the sideboard. goodbye goyf, hello piglet. Single copy only.

Squelch is solid in monoblue sideboards. It takes all kinds of nastyness and makes it go away. Planeswalker activations, Oblivion Stone, fetchlands... it doesn't matter, and it even cantrips.

Expensive spells like Insidious Will and Exhaustion are out of place in a deck with a 17-land manabase (and the former pales in comparison to good old Cryptic Command). Flood of Recollection is also a bit on the durdly side for my taste. If you want big spells, I'd consider running a few more lands, and considering Tempest Djinn as a backup threat.
