Flood of Recollection Discussion

Loreshadow on Jaya's Magical Shotgun (Wizard Control)

2 weeks ago

I have some questions about Elite Arcanist and duping spells right now, but there is an insane amount of spell duping available in standard right now. It's just about finding the right mana cheats and frankly card draw and tempo stalls. I don't think it really falls on a single Burn spell so much in this case after reviewing the new stuff. It definitely can, but it is also so much easier just to blend the many spell multipliers and just go with a few cheap burns and looped combos cast in a single turn.

Torrential Gearhulk + Release to the Wind + Saheeli Rai + Saheeli's Artistry + Siren's Ruse + Flood of Recollection + Karn's Temporal Sundering + Insult / Injury + Swarm Intelligence + The Mirari Conjecture + Tilonalli's Skinshifter, etc., etc., etc....

And that's just with Izzet. Too many artifact creature/spell based duping to list. That's a lot of duping at once. I'll probably be experimenting with Living Lore + Torrential Gearhulk combos quite a bit if I ever get away from Elite Arcanist + Naban, Dean of Iteration. Fun stuff man! I can barely keep from rejoining Standard, lol.

Though there's a whole lot of Exile This Card from the Temporal and Mana Cheating cards. Guess the devs got smarter. :p

Anyways, as for this deck.

Saheeli Rai - No mana duping of creatures.

Torrential Gearhulk - Can be duped by Saheeli for free when your mana is all untapped to trigger a Release to the Wind, Cooperate, through hulk or cast an Insult on its own.

Release to the Wind can also reset your planeswalkers' loyalty counts.

I really like the idea, but am a bit worried that you might not get there. Looking at this deck, I immediately saw some changes that I would want to make before playing it. I copied and modified this deck according to those ideas in Comment on Forget your deck, but may have gone a bit overboard. My ideal play would be to have Induced Amnesia on the field - then replay it using something like Release to the Wind every turn thereafter. This would leave cards stranded in exile. You then still need to stall or disrupt your opponent's play enough to give you time to mill out your opponent. Perpetual Timepiece could be a good card if you were cycling or drawing consistently. Flood of Recollection allows you to re-play instants of your choice from the graveyard. Is there another way of recycling an enchantment?

Mice_Overseer on Merfolk with a twist

Jadelight Ranger and Blossoming Defense are absolute must-haves in any Standard Merfolk deck at the moment. To make room, I'd suggest getting rid of New Horizons, because this is a deck that mainly cares about filling the board, as well as Nissa, Genesis Mage and Flood of Recollection. Tishana, Voice of Thunder and River's Rebuke are both borderline, but if they've been performing for you then that's what matters. Good luck!

Korlash88 has a decent point, but it can work with enough cheap spells that draw you cards. Chart a Course is good, Flood of Recollection returns another spell to your hand, Pirate's Prize and Pirate's Pillage give you treasure tokens, Secrets of the Golden City is efficient late game, and Shake the Foundations is a solid sideboard card against RDW.

If you consider Relearn, check out the recently printed Flood of Recollection :)

To remove:

Mastermind's Acquisition -doesn't do as much without being able to use the second clause (for this reason, Cunning Wish doesn't do anything)

Flood of Recollection -it's conditional, meaning that it doesn't do anything on its own (requires another card). Also, it's not directly affecting the board state

Isochron Scepter -same basic reason

Acid Rain -sure, its good if your opponent plays forests, but you don't want that against anything else, imagine having it in your opener playing a red aggressive deck (also, many nonbasics are played in commander, so just because it's a green deck doesn't mean that it'll have forests)

I do like some of your suggestions such as Dictate of Karametra, Frantic Search and Flood of Recollection I already have some of them ordered and on their way :)

As for the other ones I had most of them in here at one point and cut them all like Hardened Scales and Winding Constrictor. It seems whenever I play Ramos, trying to keep alive is way too much of a commitment. People would just feel like they're super sneaky and shit when they get to use their artifact removal spells on him -__- . i was investing a lot of mana each turn just to keep him alive. So I just decided give up on it and focus making the deck more sustainable even without him and if he lives it's just added bonus.

Also some of your suggestions are great and I have considered them, but those prices tags make me frown haha. Without a doubt they can be subbed in to make it even better but I'm a pretty budget player. Hence why I have Evacuation over Cyclonic Rift lol

I have used some of those instant/sorcery recursion spells. But I've found some better more flexible and cheaper options and will putting them in soon. Treasured Find Reborn Hope and ofc Flood of Recollection

Have you considered running Frantic Search, Cut / Ribbons, Exsanguinate, Winding Constrictor, Hardened Scales, and Fall of the Titans?

The Constrictor and Scales helps you hit 5 counters sooner, making getting to that point just a little bit easier on your deck.

Frantic Search synergizes well with Mirari's Wake and Turnabout, as well as Primal Amulet  Flip post-transformation.

The remaining three help act as finishers, with Exsanguinate helping you to sustain/stabilize in the face of aggro.

Decent sweepers to consider include Toxic Deluge, Sweltering Suns, and any of a variety of others.

Tutors such as Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor and Enlightened Tutor manage to avoid breaking the bank while helping to improve consistency of the deck, while also being cheap options that will help you to find the cards you want/need when you need them in a game.

I think Mana Flare and Dictate of Karametra might also work well for the deck when paired with more untap land effects and really make a huge impact for you.

Cheap instant/sorcery recursion like Past in Flames, Mystic Retrieval, Relearn, Call to Mind and Flood of Recollection could also be useful, as they let you reuse the spells that really matter.

I hope this was helpful!
