Future Sight Discussion
1 week ago
Very good points... Impulse is my next high priority acquisition. I have noticed in gameplay, if I land Keranos and a filter like top, Jace or Thassa, then the game definitely shifts in my favor. I absolutely love landing Future Sight with keranos and a filter. It's not an end the game combo but whoever I'm playing is gonna be really having a tough time. Lol I love playing this deck.

I actually decided to try out the scepter/reversal combo as well while I wait for a few pieces to show up in the mail and it has been decent. Still not sold on it but I can see it being a reasonable inclusion. That said, Isochron Scepter has been very good in the games I played it, even when I did not have the Dramatic Reversal. I usually just imprint something like Counterspell but the ability to reuse it every turn, even though everyone else can see it coming and will likely play around it has been very good.
I also tried out Paradox Engine and it has been absurd. I have won every game that I cast it, immediately after resolving it. Although you do not run the Future Sight/Sensei's Divining Top/Cloud Key combo in your list (which Paradox Engine works as a backup Cloud Key), I still think it is worth trying out due to the shenanigans it does with all of the mana rocks in the deck.

Temple of Deceit is too slow, cut it for an Island
Geier Reach should also be an Island, you don't ever want to spend to give your opponents hand crafting
Not a huge fan of Bojuka Bog, but its ok for utility.
What I'm getting at is, the more Islands you run the more powerful High Tide becomes. Casting Time Spiral with 1 or 2 High Tides active can be game winning, it can also provide you with the gas to do less efficient Doomsday piles that run protection.
You still need to add Ponder.
In a dedicated Doomsday deck like this, you might want to use Street Wraith. Although it does hit you in the face for 5 when you Ad Nauseum into it, you cant really interact with cycling as easily as you can another draw spell. Admittedly probably not worth running in a cEDH build, I just have love for that card.
Take out Void Shatter add Arcane Denial.
Mana Crypt is too good not to run.
Jet Medallion is only letting you cast 10 or so spells for cheaper, Sapphire Medallion is slightly more justifiable, but even so, I'd ax them both.
Retract is sweet, just saying.
Consider Memory Jar, obviously this would be a Timetwister if it wasn't $900.
I'm a big proponent of "Future Top" enabled by Helm of Awakening.
Future Sight & Sensei's Divining Top
Some really cool fun things happen when you cast Doomsday with Future Sight on board. Your pile might look like:
Lion's Eye Diamond
So, if you run Future Sight, you might as well run the other 2 pieces that let you draw your deck and generate massive storm count anyhow. I LOVE "Future Top".
Cards that I think are otherwise very cut worthy:
Thing in the Ice Flip
Leyline of the Void
Wish you best of luck tweaking this deck, and hope you have fun with it most of all.

MegaMatt13 Thanks! I appreciate the upvote and the advice! My average CMC is pretty high and sometimes I do run into problems with needing access to more mana. Empress Galina and Expropriate definitely fit the theme but I'm not sure what I'd want to take out for them. Any suggestions? As far as adding in some green ramp, I think that taking out Thought Reflection and Kruphix, God of Horizons for Cultivate and Kodama's Reach makes a lot of sense to me. Thought Reflection serves as card advantage and a way to ensure that I can still draw with Island Sanctuary on the board while keeping its effect up. However, Soothsaying and Future Sight not only work better in concert with each other but with Island Sanctuary overall. On top of that, Thought Reflection leaves me vulnerable to mill with cards like Jace's Archivist floating around my meta. Also, Kruphix, God of Horizons doesn't net me much a lot of the time as a result of a high average cmc (go figure). Typically, my best option as far as getting value out of Kruphix is spend a turn storing mana but that's almost never the most pertinent line of play. Your suggestion also makes me consider dropping Thran Dynamo for Explosive Vegetation. Sol Ring and Thran are the only mana rocks I feel generally worth putting in a deck but ultimately I think I'd rather just get the basics out of my deck permanently.
Again, thanks for your advice!

I like all the 1 mana artifacts with Salvaging Station. If you do add the station add as many of the 1 mana non-creature artifacts from your maybeboard as you can!
not sure about Quicksmith Spy, doesn't look like you have many untap effects to really break it
Solemn Simulacrum seems too fair for a combo deck, especially with a low curve.
speaking of low mana curve, Thran Dynamo could maybe go?
Thirst for Knowledge is great!
could Inspiring Statuary be good in here?
maybe Temple of Deceit?

If I have Future Sight out, and the top card of my library is a mana, can I play that mana on my opponent's turn?

Driemer84: Hi Driemer84, nice for you to find the deck.
I have not polished up the name or the explanation in long while. Essentially, the deck is a very hard control deck that can also combo kill very easily if needed. Aetherflux Reservoir and Paradox Engine are the primary win cons besides wizard beatdown, planeswalkers, and etc. They work very well together as well as by themselves.
Those two artifacts are relatively new, and I am unsure if they will remain in the deck long-term. However, I have had great success with both of them so far. The deck combos easily with the Paradox Engine without any modifications needed to slot it in. Basically have Azami, Lady of Scrolls on the battlefield. Draw some cards. Cast cards using artifact mana. Continue this cycle to draw as much of the deck as you want. I think out of about 100 times, I only failed to continue the Paradox Engine combo once. However, I Winter Orbed my opponent anyways, and they had one turn to react to me with only one mana against my full grip. They lost the next turn easily. You will never run out of the triggers if you have Azami, Lady of Scrolls, one nonland source of mana, and Sensei's Divining Top. Then you can win with the Aetherflux Reservoir, Capsize everything, or something else after generating massive advantage and storm.
The deck works well in duel and multiplayer. The combos are more often needed/desired in multiplayer but they are not necessary. My average win rate at my local meta and online hovers around 90%-95%.
Hope this clears some things up. Thanks for the plus one for liking my creation. Have a great day! :)
