Hey, you're welcome.

Oh nice, you're adding more expensive price cards. Thassa is in my opinion better then Aura Gnarlid . There's a lot of nonaura enchantments here and they don't pump Gnarlid. To add Study consider cutting one of either Gift of Paradise or New Horizons ? These land auras are fine cards, but as a three drops not even close to being as powerful as Study is. You already have Estrid because of the precon and I think she's better here than Creeping Renaissance . Protection with aura Masks or mass enchantment reanimation is good. Good luck with your deck.

This is a cool brew, it's definitely powerful once you have the engine in place. I playtested a few games against one of my creature-heavy decks & yours seemed to have trouble getting the right mana out, with some cases being the wrong color & others just being missing land drops early. I'd recommend upping to 26 lands given your high curve & how important it is to hit at least your first 5 land drops to get into your wraths. If you can't swing the shocklands right now, you might want to also use some gates instead of basics since you can probably afford a few lands to come in tapped.

The one other thing that seemed to be missing was life gain. Assuming Hydroid Krasis is out of the budget, some ideas that also contribute to the rest of the strategy are Depose / Deploy , Dovin, Architect of Law , Elite Guardmage , Gift of Paradise , and Knight of Autumn .

As far as what to take out, I think you could just reduce the number of copies of a few cards. Wilderness Reclamation is an awesome enabler but doesn't have any benefit in multiples, so I'm thinking just 2 of those, then depend on your draw power to see it consistently. Tamiyo is another one that seems a little much as a 4-of, maybe just 2 or 3 of her. Finally having Dovin's veto as a 4-of in the mainboard seems risky since it can be a mostly-dead draw in some matchups.

You only need to wait for Core 2020 when you will have Flood of Tears . Combined with stuff like planeswalkers and Gift of Paradise , getting to 6 permanents shouldn't be hard.

Hey Everyone!

Brand new user here, brand new player (been toying with MTG Arena to figure out builds I want to invest in).

I've been playing around with Omniscience . I've seen the build that combos it with Overflowing Insight to make the opponent deck out, but that just doesn't seem fun to play with or against. Instead, I've been trying to play as many big creatures as possible and win the same turn in comes out.

Here's where I'm struggling: Omniscience is a big card, so I know the deck needs to ramp quickly. I also know I need to have a constant inflow of cards into my hand. Also fine. The problem is that, when I put together the ramp cards and the drawing engines, there isn't really any room in the deck for anything else. I can fit a few big hitters, and not much to protect me until turn 5+ when I can get all of this out. Here's what I'm running right now on Arena:

CREATURE

4x Arboreal Grazer

2x Llanowar Elves

2x Druid of the Cowl

1x God-Eternal Oketra

1x God-Eternal Bontu

1x Goring Ceratops

1x Zetalpa, Primal Dawn

1x Torgaar, Famine Incarnate

1x Ghalta, Primal Hunger

ENCHANTMENT

2x Gift of Paradise

2x New Horizons

1x Omniscience

SORCERY

2x Open the Gates

2x Divination

2x Sleep

3x Blood Divination

1x Finale of Revelation

INSTANT

2x Growth Spiral

ARTIFACT

1x Arcane Encyclopedia

2x Mana Geode

PLANESWALKER

1x Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter

2x Samut, Tyrant Smasher

LAND

8x Island

8x Forest

1x Hinterland Harbor

2x Simic Guildgate

4x Woodland Stream

The idea is to ramp, draw cards, get Samut, Tyrant Smasher out so all my big hitters have Haste and take the game the turn they come on. I know I'm doing something inefficiently, I just don't know what. Any help would be really appreciated here.

Thanks!

Hi, long post. I'm looking to get a lot of trading done hopefully.


I'm putting together a Estrid, the Masked Oathbreaker deck. I need to trade for Estrid obviously, and I also need some specific cards to to complete the deck. Here's a list:

1x Estrid, the Masked 1x Breeding Pool 1x Estrid's Invocation 1x Gift of Paradise 1x Imprisoned in the Moon 1x Mystic Remora 1x Weirding Wood 1x Swan Song 1x Swords to Plowshares 1x Kiora's Follower 1x Bramble Sovereign 2x Stasis 1x Hokori, Dust Drinker 1x Linvala, Keeper of Silence 1x Chain of Vapor 1x Spellseeker AnyX Forge of Heroes

I also have some specific wants from recent sets that I would be interested in trading for:

1x Phyrexian Altar (EMA) 2x Generous Gift 1x Gamble 1x Sulfur Falls 1x Finale of Revelation 1x Evolution Sage 1x Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin 1x Karn's Bastion 1x Flux Channeler 1x Bolas's Citadel 1x Karn, the Great Creator 2x Runic Armasaur 1x Biomancer's Familiar 1x Dark-Dweller Oracle 1x Immolation Shaman 1x Rhythm of the Wild 1x Emmara, Soul of the Accord 1x Teysa Karlov 1x Ugin, the Ineffable 1x God-Eternal Oketra 1x Teferi, Time Raveler 1x Saheeli, Sublime Artificer 1x Tithe Taker 1x Light Up the Stage 1x Priest of Forgotten Gods 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Cruel Celebrant 2x Dovin's Veto 1x Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion 1x Primal Amulet  Flip 1x Neheb, the Eternal 1x Deep Forest Hermit 17x Snow-Covered Mountain 1x Goblin Engineer 1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician 1x Cabal Therapist 1x Mirrodin Besieged 1x Hall of Heliod's Generosity 1x Talisman of Hierarchy 1x Talisman of Creativity

And I was also thinking about making a Feather EDH deck, so I would be interested in trading for these cards as well:

1x Feather, the Redeemed 1x Seize the Day 1x Impact Resonance 1x Defiant Strike 1x Inspiring Vantage 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Rugged Prairie 1x Sunforger

I also have a bunch of commander staples in my binder wants. I'll obviously trade for them for the right offer, but if I haven't listed them here then they're not a priority for me right now.


You can find my Binder here: Link. It should be about 95% up to date. I recommend sorting by price, since there's a lot on there.

Here's a list of some of my notable haves that I'm looking to trade:

1x Leyline of the Void 1x Ensnaring Bridge (STH) 1x Sakashima the Impostor 1x The Chain Veil 1x Purphoros, God of the Forge 2x Vedalken Orrery 1x Scourge of the Throne 1x Life from the Loam 1x Tainted Pact 1x Nature's Will 1x Opalescence 1x Isochron Scepter 1x Master Transmuter 2x Sterling Grove 1x Karador, Ghost Chieftain 3x Nim Deathmantle 1x Lotus Bloom 4x Puresteel Paladin

...and others not mentioned.

Leave a comment or message me if you're interested :)

EchoScorch Thanks! I really like your deck, especially the Bond of Flourishing instead of the often-talked-about Revitalize in this style deck for card draw/filtering earlier & potential with Citadel. I see that helping dig for the combo pieces (and it can hit all of them) so the deck is more consistent-which with all the explore creatures is already pretty good at digging for pieces. I'm of the opinion that the more permanents the better to drain for 20 in the same turn, but it looks so good I'll give it a try.

Goldfishing the deck has made me think about other ways of giving creatures haste as well, and although painful to splash in a normal deck Gift of Paradise allowing us to easily splash one off-color card and Citadel allowing us to play cards regardless of colors means almost any of those options are viable. I was looking at Chance for Glory as a 1-of in the deck as the option for virtual haste, but Samut, Tyrant Smasher and Heroic Reinforcements look like better options.

A lot to think on and playtest... excellent...

Hey 1119Jace_Beleren,

I suggest you add 2 Gift of Paradise , to take more advantage of the Wilderness Reclamation . Also, with Gift of Paradise , you gain life, that is great against non-control decks.

If this deck is not for Magic Arena Bo1, I think that you need a sideboard. If you want to do a sideboard, and you need help, tell me.

Greets,

After looking at this list and working on some tweaks I think this has the potential to be an ok archetype but nothing interesting. Blue makes Rec what it's renown for but I think there still some hope here.

For starters this is hoping your opponent isn't playing counters or post-board hate, which isn't reality. Sadly, enchantment removal and mono-blue just destroy slow builds now and this doesn't exactly have quick pay off like Nexus.

Turn 1 you have nothing. Turn 2 you have 5 cards that do nothing to interact. Turn 3 Casting Gift of Paradise after Treasure Map  Flip looks bad to me on the curve. But that does leaves up a possible turn 3 Clarion, which isn't bad but not what this deck can rely on.

Turn 4 Rec may just get countered, bounced, Mortified, etc because no creatures or anything in particular is eating their removal. That's assuming 4 lands we're drawn or Paradise resolved. Route is a great power play but usually this deck doesn't really do much until Route resolves leaving your opponent a turn extra to continue their plan. Paradise into Route is also a bad curve. This is all the best case scenarios assuming you don't draw a gate either on curve, which happened to me frequently.

The good news is the power spells are mean once (if) resolved and hopefully you can play your next turn. Again our Dragon will immediately eat any creature removal and you can pray at least one untap with Rec to maybe want to do a measly 2 damage. Of course, this is generalizing from my experience.

So how to make this competitive from what I've seen. Needs 2CC removal spells. Lightning Strike , Justice Strike , Seal Away , or MB Lava Coil depending on meta. No control deck plays just big spells without early removal for time-tested reasons.

One suggestion I've made was Growth-Chamber Guardian . It made this deck a lot smoother against varied archetypes but left me wanting more.

I even tried a token strategy with Memorial to Glory and Divine Visitation . That didn't work as well as I hoped.

One possibility would to be just go all in Gates. Likely splash for blue because it's just so powerful. Trim down Rec and add 4th Route and card draw + X spells.
