Font of Mythos Discussion

Worldf1re on Got more mill than the Holland countryside

Thanks for your suggestions, Luca.

I like the idea of the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank combo very much, and I think it could work quite well in this deck, but I'm very much a sucker for flavour so I don't think it'll work for me, exactly.

As for Font of Mythos and Howling Mine, I've found that when using these cards (they were actually part of an earlier version of this deck before it went Esper) that your opponents draw too much and the advantage shifts in their favour. You also don't get the first draw off them (with your draw phase being the last in the so-called 'cylce' after you cast it), which is why I prefer the Temple Bell's versatility in being able to draw on the end-step or not at all.

One nice way to one-shot someone is using the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank combo. I've had a lot of fun with that one. Also, for increased drawing for Sphinx's Tutelage, you might want to think about Font of Mythos or Howling Mine, and the also help to mill out opponents quicker.

Cheers! -Luca

I'd take out Blightspeaker - you have no rebels that I saw. It looks like you've picked up some packs of the newer sets, so you might already have a Gifted Aetherborn which would sub in well.

As for draw, green is somewhat limited, but there are options. Life's Legacy or Regal Force are relatively cheap. Harmonize or Soul's Majesty also work. If all else fails, pick up a Howling Mine or Font of Mythos and get everyone drawing. Black has Greed and I'm sure a few others... if you feel like dropping some coin Sylvan Library is a staple in every green EDH deck I make. I add a Mind's Eye to every deck as well to assist with draw.

Let me first add to your problem by saying that this is the sort of deck that would want multiple copies of Sphinx's Tutelage.

Also Ancestral Recall is an absurdly powerful card. Even in vintage where people do degenerate things on a regular basis you are allowed only a single copy of it. A lot of people might not want to play aginst you if they know you are running 4 copies.

As for cuts:

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur cool card but you have no ways in the deck to cheat him out early and it will be hard to reliably cast him.

Elixir of Immortality, with tutelage you should be draining their library faster than your own.

Cancel as someone who loves counterspells way too much i think you can cut the cansels. If you want to keep that many counters in the deck you could run one of the ones that's better than cancel like Dissolve/Dissipate/Scatter to the Winds

2x Font of Mythos: having it as a 4 of might be a bit excessive

hardhitta71194 Oh thanks dude, I appreciate it. Tbh, the only problem with this deck is the draw rate of course. I was thinking of either putting in another Font of Mythos or look for another draw artifact. Font is great and all but it has screwed me a few times lol. As for Rite of Flame I completely forgot I had it on the maybe board and actually found out this deck was modern legal the other day. Thanks for pointing it out, I'll remove it.

With Sphinx's Tutelage as the primary win condition, I'm not sure green offers you the best supporting options. Rather than hiding behind a small number of creatures with deathtouch, I'd rather just counter and remove my opponents' threats (as in a U/B shell) or even run a turbofog plan to lock out damage (as in a U/W shell).

Either way, you might find some value in repetitive draw affects like Kruphix's Insight, Temple Bell, Howling Mine, and Font of Mythos. I'd also consider adding an Elixir of Immortality, just in case.

I've never actually had an issue with ramp so extra rocks and dorks haven't been necessary. Momir does have a good case to be commander but I quite enjoy Zegana at the helm. I do like Font of Mythos though. Exotic Orchard was a carry over from when I had a bit of sunburst in the deck. I just haven't changed it yet.

Bonds of Mortality has been very very useful and I prefer it to tuck removal as it's repeatable.

I don't play enough warriors to make Bramblewood Paragon worth it in that regard. So I'm back to the same place and Primal Rage doesn't die to creature removal and it's far less likely to be a target than the other enchantments I run.

I tried Ezuri, wasn't a fan. Great card, just didn't do anything for this deck.

Sadly a lot of your suggestions are outside my budget at this point (believe me Tropical Island is the first thing I'd buy) and I honestly don't get the hype on Force of Will.
