Gattison on Derelor: Making Unplayable Cards Playable

Excellent! Nice job, and I love the direction you took it!

Searching Gatherer, I found Grim Tutor, Gifts Ungiven, Beseech the Queen or Diabolic Intent for tutors. Maybe one of them would serve you better?

If you want to abuse ETB consider Panharmonicon. Call of the wild and Deadbridge Chant could be useful in a deck like this.

Unfortunately Gifts Ungiven is banned in EDH. If your meta doesn't care, I guess it doesn't matter.

SynergyBuild on Sultai - The Gifts that Keep on Giving

It seems like if you know the opponent's deck, resolving a Gifts Ungiven with the right pile wins the game. Am I wrong in that assumption? It appears to me it is the sultai player's Cryptic Command (Which is normally the win in jeskai/azorius control decks, as the tempo it gives is insurmountable by most decks).

Would you consider running more of Cryptic Commands?

Also, a card I run as a one-of for delirium, and because of it's interaction with Mishra's Bauble, would Crop Sigil do work here? I have found it is easy to use it as a bad Search for Azcanta  Flip, that can later be both halves (minus the lifegain) of a Pulse of Murasa, below is my list:

You're welcome TKDbeast! I also forgot to mention Supreme Will when I was talking about digging cards and ways to recur them. To answer your other questions,

  1. Gifts Ungiven helps me get whatever I need at the moment. Am I short on blue mana? Ill get an Island, Snow-Covered Island,Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, etc. Do I have enough mana for Mindslaver lock and I have Academy Ruins on board, then I'll grab Mindslaver! It's one of those cards that is very useful for card advantage and can help me either close the gap or widen it even more.
  2. That choice is up to personal preference. Most Mono-Blue Tron Decks run about 7-9 creatures to make room for more spells and such, some people up to 11 creatures. I've talked to people that have cut out the mages for Fabricate since they both can be played only during your turn and it can be used again by Snapcaster Mage. But me personally I don't like to go below 7 or 8 creatures. It is true that they die to kill spells and can't be used again with Snapcaster Mage but, with the cheap cost it does help to get some early creature board presence. Same thing with Walking Ballista. Sure you can save him and make him huge later but other times it's just better to make a 1/1. You can grow him later or snipe something early and get him back with Academy Ruins.

awesomeragle on List of Bugs and Feature ...

I've had a persistent issue with the site automatically switching to what appears to be a mobile mode even while I am on desktop. Previously this has had something to do with the size of my web browser but now it looks like it is constantly on the mobile version and I am missing features because of it, most notably the deck test and the deck statistics features.

Additionally, I just had a rather disappointing bug happen where I spent a rather long time perfecting a Gifts Ungiven deck for modern, saved it, edited it a few times, saving it with each iteration. Then I closed the tab to see if that would fix the above bug about the mobile version showing (it didn't). What's worse is when I came back, the Gifts deck I had been working on was completely gone, as though it had never existed.

I do not think there is any merit to maindecking Mana Leak or much less 4 (same for Noxious). Same goes for Grapeshot. With humans as a top deck with 4 Meddling Mages, diversifying your wincons is vital.

-3 grapeshot, -2 noxious, -4 mana leak + 1 Empty the Warrens, + 4 Sleight of Hand + 2 Goblin Electromancer + 2 Gifts Ungiven.

zenozia Thanks for the kind words.

I don't feel like Gifts Ungiven is so good in this list. You can't get multiples of same card with it, which sucks for Pyromancer Ascension. 2/2 Split would just be bad with Ascension overall. Pieces of the Puzzle works bit better with the deck and costs one mana less so i go with it. You can sure always try everything.

Search for Azcanta  Flip is great when you don't have that explosive start and have to grind trough the game and is even better after sideboarding digging for Blood Moons and such. And you can always discard it for Faithless Looting if you have that explosive start. Its not that bad. But its definitely card that will be the first cut when needed. And don't play 2 Lightning Bolts in main, doesn't really work with Ascension. Better to go up to 4 Sleight of Hands and then play some one of depending on meta. One of Baral, Chief of Compliance could be something for example.

this deck is awesome man I currently own a gift storm deck and I too feel that it's really hard to win when your opponent have acces to their sideboard my only real question is about Pieces of the Puzzle over Gifts Ungiven yea it help putting card into graveyard but you cant pick Pyromancer Ascension from it also having acces to pif and Grapeshot may be usefull also when Pyromancer Ascension is charged having the Manamorphose is deadly so my question is why not run a split 2/2 or 4 copy of Gifts Ungiven instead?

also Search for Azcanta is really by far the worst card in the deck will switch it for Lightning Bolt so you can put 2 other card in sideboard

will probably buy your list it seemed really good!
