Future Sight Discussion

Cloudius on Stipulation: No Even Numbers ANYWHERE Upgraded

Sure, I'll come to you with suggestions if any. Having to ensure they're even-number-free does up the deck building challenge but adds so much to the "Yennett is Odd" flavor!

Btw, Future Sight has a and some other cards as well. Is that a no no for you or as long as the CMC is odd, you're fine?

Hmmm for an alternative win con and such, I usually go for Future Sight + Paradox Engine + Sensei's Divining Top or Helm of Awakening to go into infinite draws. After that I would use a spell like Bitter Ordeal and recur it with Codex Shredder . Another line I go for is the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal in addition with Copy Artifact + Winds of Rebuke / Swan Song and go infinite mill or birdies.

Hey DrkNinja,

Thanks for your extremely helpful comment. It's no worries that it came a little late. Sorry for commenting a bit late, I had to chew it over a bit. I don't feel that you're coming off as a dick, so you're all good there.

I agree with you on lack of spot removal. In the description that is in the works, I listed it as a weakness. The lack of boardwipes is due to me not being a fan of them, as it kind of ruins the game, so I'll add one in for now and see how it goes. I'm not a big fan of counterspells (due to reasons outside of EDH), which is why I'm not playing any. I also feel like counterspells sometimes are a dead card sometimes when there is nothing to counter that is really worth it.

  • I agree with you on the PWs. Most times, the pod or table overreacts to an Omniscience ult or ult on the next turn, so they'll be getting the cut.

  • The reason why I have Spellbook in is because you want to draw a bunch of cards, but to do that you have to play a land. You draw into the Spellbook, and you can play it. But I'll try Reliquary Tower and see how that works. But after thinking about it, I almost never have more than 7 cards, so I'll cut Spellbook

  • I'll again try out Contagion Engine over the Clasp, but I really like being able to kill an early dork before things get going. After thinking about it, I have decided to cut it in favor of more removal.

  • You're probably right about the PW tutors, so I'll cut those for more card draw.

  • I feel you're right on Tireless Tracker , so I'll cut it for card draw that actually draws when cast.

  • I don't really want to cut Vizier of the Menagerie , as I like the ability to look at the top card of my library to plan out my turn. I guess I could use Future Sight and the accompanying Magus. After thinking about it, I do need some more removal, so I'll have to cut this for more removal.

  • I feel that I was low on ramp, so I just put Talisman of Progress in. Do you have any suggestions for other mana dorks/rocks that I might put instead of this?

  • I agree with you on Oath of Ajani , as you'll never need it in the early game, so I'll replace it with Loyal Guardian

These are the things that I'm going to swap out, after your suggestions. Anything you would change?

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate your help.

Haha glad that helps naturesnake420, it might not be that great in a Circu deck but Future Sight + Sensei's Divining Top + Helm of Awakening is infinite draws and will lead you to drawing out your whole deck. Another line to go with Labman win when there isn't another alternative~

Consuming Aberration is easier to deal with in comparison with Paradox Engine , Engine also allows you to stack triggers to untap all your rocks a multitude of times. As long you can cast your spells, you can go pseudo-infinite. If you are already going infinite mana than Aberration is a waste of a slot as you can recast your commander.

Paradox is just good in general and also allows you to control their deck far more efficiently when it's resolved. Take this scenario where you have Lantern of Insight on the field along with Circu, Future Sight , Sensei's Divining Top as well as Ghoulcaller's Bell . With Paradox on the field and mana rocks that produce at least 3 mana, you can essentially control the draw of everyones board state locking down the board, you see what they draw, if you don't like the card cast a spell to trigger Circu by using the mana provided by the rocks, on the stack you can either mill the card or target other players before untapping all your nonland permanents.

NoOneOfConsequence on Sen Triplets Artifact Control

So, you have Ad Nauseam and Angel's Grace . Cool. What's the game plan from there? Draw your whole library, sure. Then what? Play Laboratory Maniac ? Well, you can't actually win with that alone, because you'll then die as a state-based action during the next upkeep. You'd have to save a Ponder , Preordain , or Brainstorm . That's 10 mana to go off--not exactly great for a 2-card combo. Sure, you have Reliquary Tower to not have to draw your whole library, but you'd probably still just kill yourself, all the same. And I wouldn't really recommend using Ad Nauseam any other time, frankly--you have a bad curve for it, with a number of 5 drops, 6 drops, and a 9 drop. Also, you're only playing 23 artifacts, including your commander. I'd recommend playing at least 25.

I see you're also running Dramatic Scepter, Top + Future Sight + Sculptor, and Paradox Engine . That's all well and good, but I don't really see the payoff apart from Blind Obedience . That's a whole ton of combo pieces to put together--not great.

Cut Ward of Bones , Consecrated Sphinx , Darksteel Forge , Armageddon , Dissipate , Phyrexian Arena , and Perplex . Put in Static Orb , Shimmer Myr , Winter Orb , Tangle Wire , Grafdigger's Cage , Pongify , and Terminus . Considering you're running Mystical Tutor , Personal Tutor , Sensei's Divining Top , Brainstorm , and Future Sight , it shouldn't be that hard to miracle it.

Obviously Jhoira of the Ghitu works the best as she can allow you to cast cards from your hand anyway, plus you'd have access to Future Sight and Magus of the Future which are the same card but better.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots , Nikya of the Old Ways , or Neheb, the Eternal are other choices as they make casting lots of spells much more stream-lined.

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent is a good choice if there's a card you can't play off the top of your deck as she gives you the ability to easily remove it. Scion of the Ur-Dragon is a similar option as you're given a useable shuffle effect to change what's on top of your library if you run into an extra land.
