Helm of Awakening Discussion

Timetwister over Day's Undoing obv. Your budget SEEMS to support it.

I think that Paradox Engine is too weak here without a way to cheat it out (given that it's a 5-drop that gives you conditional mana). I understand the combo, but I'd honestly rather just put in another tutor to find Helm of Awakening.

No Crucible of Worlds or Beast Within? If your base can support it, Strip Mine might be a helpful utility card to add.

Final suggestion: Just play Lilbrudder's list, it's inevitable ;)

Say you're going for your combo but have to fight for it once the pieces land on the table. Someone's pointing a Beast Within at your stuff, using Chord of Calling to fetch a Reclamation Sage, or whatever. Not only are plays against you easier to make now that Helm of Awakening is on the field, it could end up backfiring tremendously if your combo is interrupted and Helm of Awakening is left on the field. Imagine how happy your opponents on Storm would be, for example.

Future Sight with Helm isn't good, because the only reason to run Helm is to be faster. Given that faster combos exist outside of future sight even in mono blue, I'd prefer to fall back on the future sight combo using the safer option.

Why is Cloud Key played in Future Sight+Cloud Key+Sensei's Divining Top when Helm of Awakening exists? It seems like a strictly better card unless I'm really missing something.

Sure, the two wincons are Laboratory Maniac and Aetherflux Reservoir, so let's discuss the reservoir.

With a T1 god hand that gets you all the cards into your hand you just play free artifacts into Helm of Awakening and Etherium Sculptor. Now you can cast all 2 and lower CMC artifacts for free. Play Aetherflux Reservoir, all free artifacts, net positive spells such as Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual, and if needed bounce 2 artifacts to replay them with Chain of Vapor saccing your land.

I cover this in the Tendrils vs Aetherflux accordion panel, but the T1 god hand kill requires a total of 23 storm with trigger stacking to win, since you will start at -118 life after the Ad Nauseam.

In a game where you attack with Zur to get Necropotence you have 4+ mana if you didn't cast anything, and you simply tutor for Shimmer Myr on end step and follow the above steps for shenanigans. This requires 15 or fewer spells cast (almost always), nets you rocks/life if you get stopped somehow, happens at instant speed and usually goes mana positive unlike Tendrils. Chain of Vapor is a huge enabler too, you sac all your lands to bounce cheaps rocks for added storm count.

Tap lands, there are potentially 12 of them if you count check/fast lands. You are lacking in red/green mana, blue mana is overpowering according to pie chart. Rude Awakening?

If you add in Helm of Awakening, you have access to Future Top combo with lab man. Future Sight Sensei's Divining Top Helm of Awakening.

Chaos Warp is solid, especially in a spell heavy meta. I don't think I like Winter Orb though. Ultimately your control comes from wheeling with Leo or thief in play. And considering your opponents are probably going to be running a high rock count, I think either Etherium Sculptor, Goblin Electromancer or Helm of Awakening seems like the better play. You are basically playing storm after all.

MohenjoDaro thank you for your very interesting suggestion! I already played this deck and yes it's very funny! The only problem I had, was against aggro decks. I often thought about cards like Helm of Awakening but I think that would make no sense because of so many other good cards. Every deck has its weakness and this deck is a little bit slow. Thank you MohenjoDaro!
