Geistblast Discussion

Deadpoo111 on Your lands are my lands

Alright, first off, put in Lantern of Insight. It's gonna make your life a helluva lot easier. In terms of cuts, there are some obvious exclusions you just don't need. Discombobulate, Geistblast, Descendant of Soramaro, and a bunch of overcosted stuff. For a deck like this, you wanna keep that curve LOW.

(saw your post on tumblr and had to come and suggest stuff, but feel free to ignore, I'm just trying to throw some ideas out to help out!)

I think counterspells aren't very good as signature spells (but I don't have much experience with Oathbreaker). If you're going for flavor I think Expansion / Explosion , Izzet Charm or Turn//Burn could work. (It could also be fun to build a Harnessed Lightning energy-themed deck for Ral, Storm Conduit :x)

I think that instead of running a lot of creatures with tap (or untap) abilities it would be easier to focus on artifacts for the ramp/card draw/etc with cards like Clock of Omens , Key to the City , Staff of Nin (), Unwinding Clock , Chaos Wand , Oracle's Vault () and a bunch of mana rocks ( Mind Stone , Pyramid of the Pantheon (), Coalition Relic (), Talisman of Creativity , Star Compass , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith and Khalni Gem ). Animation Module can add counters to planeswalkers, so that could be fun too.

Invert / Invent and Firemind's Foresight are pretty good budget tutors. Fabricate and the Trophy Mage / Tribute Mage s could be good too.

Ensnare can be a lifesaver in certain situations. Blustersquall is something I thought I would already see in your list.

Temporal Distortion makes things take 1 extra turn to untap. Frozen AEther , Winter Orb and Mist of Stagnation are other relevant Stax pieces if you want to go that way.

Reality Shift is probably the best creature single target removal in blue.

I'd cut down on the number of X damage spells you're running and rely more on having some graveyard recursion/tutoring to make it more consistent. Mystic Retrieval would be my choice to run along with Archeomancer. Mizzix's Mastery is also pretty good, but probably better if you're focusing on spellslinging.

Vandalblast and Shenanigans (or maybe Release the Gremlins for the cuteness) are good artifact removal. Geistblast is a interesting Flashback spell that actually should be like Amonkhet's Aftermath. Insidious Will 's versatility shouldn't be underestimated.

(aaand I already suggested too much. Like I said, feel free to ignore. Can't wait to see the finished deck. I hope something from this mess helps!)

I would say maybe cutting Electrolyze , Fire / Ice , Fortune's Favor , Geistblast & Reverberate . Liliana of the Dark Realms seems out of place to be honest. I am not sure what you're budget is but you may also want to consider running Cyclonic Rift , Sensei's Divining Top and a not so expensive but better filter card Frantic Search . The has been a lot of discussion with the Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top combo.

hkhssweiss Thanks for your compliments and inputs. Am glad you like the deck. It is a rather complex deck to pilot and even as the creator of the deck, I find the the myriad of decisions to make and the endless combinations of mana to float, mind boggling.

I'm currently running 15 Tutor spells and Conflux , at , may be a bit too clunky to use.

This deck is build to function without Ramos in play. In fact, majority of the games I won with this deck, didn't see Ramos hit the battlefield even once! My personal take is that Conflux would be more suitable in a deck that focuses on putting +1/+1 counters on Ramos en-route to victory and isn't running as many tutors as I do.

The hidden MVP in this deck, is actually Intuition . Being an instant, I can cast it at the end of opponent's turn, the turn before I plan to combo off. I often tutor for the following cards, which regardless of what card the opponent chose to give me, will usually result in the same outcome:

Let me know what you think and keep the suggestions flowing pal! Cheers.

BobbyTheNewbie on Inalla reanimator doomsday combo ( Budget EDH)

So I have a deck with this exact same commander and combo's except a bit wider price range and its casual-competitive (it can go against comp decks but my goal with every game is to have fun not to win Ex: some games I could get a Doomsday off when im storming and floating mana and could win that way for sure but would rather Mind's Desire or something fun other times I turn 3 Doomsday) If your making it comp I would suggest forgetting about storm entirely except as an engine for combing. Don't put in cards that are good when your storming off put in cards that will enable you to dig asap into your combo's. Cards to drop in favor of ether more draw/ramp would be Capsize Fire Covenant Geistblast Rakdos Charm Supreme Will Rise from the Tides Spelltwine and Wizard's Retort

You're welcomed.

There's also Mirari and Swarm Intelligence if you want more copy effects from permanents.

Geistblast is actually quite good cause the copy effect is an ability, so it can't be dealt with by counterspells, except for Stifle, Disallow and the likes.

+1 to Izzet, Spellslinger deck and Bonus Round!

Bonus Round is one of my favourite card in BBD so am glad it's seeing play in your deck!

Always loved Possibility Storm too, or rather the look on combo players' face when this one card screwed up their master plans.

I currently have multiple spellslinger decks, here're the 2 I've been playing/tweaking lately.
