Helm of Awakening Discussion

@maxon, I like the extra turns bit. It needs more irl playtesting, but yea it's fun

I figured you can take advantage of the card draw in two ways; cast them on an opponent's turn (Dictate of Kruphix, Leyline of Anticipation), or take more turns! Casting Howling Mine into Time Warp is great. Add in effects like Helm of Awakening, Sapphire Medallion, and Baral, Chief of Compliance and you're cookin'

My favorite is Lighthouse Chronologist. For nine mana you get a lot of turns lol. He usually dies pretty quick though shrugs but nine mana is very achievable in edh

I used to run Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar in my animar build to dig for combo pieces. I'll absolutely consider it! Thanks!

Sounds good with the trade!

Mizzix is nice because he acts as a giant baral or multiple instances of Helm of Awakening, which is pretty powerful in a high tide list. Landing mizzix is pretty critical to the deck, similar to Shaper's rashmi draw-go list that has been taking up speed.

Mizzix high tide has a great combo in the shape of Mizzix's Mastery into Enter the Infinite, which can often be "draw your deck for 1". It's pretty easy to set up with all the wheels and looting effects going on. I'm still working out the kinks and have to test it against real people though haha. It's good to hear that your dralnu list is doing so well.

looks rad! +1 from me! sick mana base!

i'd agree that High Tide is a very potent card. it's also a very effective way to go infinite with Palinchron! same with Caged Sun and Extraplanar Lens + snow-covered lands. mid-late game shenanigans

another hilarious combo that you're almost running includes Sensei's Divining Top, Future Sight, then add in Helm of Awakening to draw out your entire deck :P

right now i'm prepping to add in infinite turns to my rashmi list. Time Warp, Temporal Manipulation and Time Stretch can go to grave; Eternal Witness, Archaeomancer, and Mnemonic Wall retrieve; then Deadeye Navigator, Progenitor Mimic, and Ghostly Flicker act as catalysts

after that it looks like low cmc control. Rewind is neat since you can leave open mana to Counterspell on another turn. most counterspells read "draw a card... counter target spell" assuming you don't hit something lower cmc.

that's what i love about rashmi. her raw power to chug along as you're just doing your thing: casting spells! if you do go the infinite mana route Thrasios, Triton Hero is a better candidate, but rashmi is less cliche. have fun with it! cheers!

More expensive options, or later upgrades to the deck:

Disperse could be Into the Roilis there any space for Ponder, Preordain, or Treasure Cruise?

is Izzet Keyrune good enough? How many times has it turning into a creature mattered?could be a Coalition Relic instead?

if you want another combo, Helm of Awakening, top and future sight draw your deck

Desolate Lighthouse could do work

merrowMania You are almost certainly correct on the Helm of Awakening. The main reason probably just came down to my bias against the card. Our play group's Grixis storm player has a history of messing up and dropping the helm too early and promptly losing the game on the spot when one of us gets an untap with the free cost reduction so while I see that the deck is easily able to abuse the helm I've been really cautious when it comes to symmetrical effects that have the potential to backfire on me. I'll test it out and probably come to love the card by I'll never forget the hilarity that ensues when a storm player forgets it's all players.
