Hurkyl's Recall Discussion

SynergyBuild: I think it definitely has the potential for the Affinity matchup to be in my favor, it's just a matter of tweaking the deck until it is fast enough to respond regularly. There is a lot of balancing left to do, but I think in the end it may end up being one of the better matchups.

All the mainboard artifact destruction is more than they are normally prepared for normally.

Getting out March of the Machines kills quite a few of their spells instantly. The only thing I have to watch out for is animating too many of their 1+ CMC artifacts that they can then swing with, but it has the added bonus of making them creatures, so equipment can no longer be equipped because you can't equip a creature to a creature. At that point Thing in the Ice  Flip flipping bounces their entire board.

Vapor Snag is also pretty solid early on, if you time it right.

I think adding Hurkyl's Recall to the SB would be the last bit I would need to really round out the deck. It really hurts affinity, but it also hits so many key artifacts in other decks as well.

CrimsonKing: Fair enough. Recurring Insight has always proven itself in my meta, but I’ve been considering cutting Murder of Crows for a while. Might go in that slot, or perhaps Hurkyl's Recall?

Fetch and Shock lands (in your case Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats, Flooded Strand and Watery Grave) are always a good choice, so why don't you add them?

Then, remember you have Archive Trap, so you should find a way to make your opponent search his library, maybe Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin?

25 lands are too much, you need to be very fast or your opponent will kill you first!

Better alternatives to Lost Legacy are Surgical Extraction and Extirpate, they cost less and since you mill his deck, it will be easy for you to use them

You need something that let's you draw, so why not Visions of Beyond or, also, a less powerfull Opt or Serum Visions?

Consuming Aberration is too slow and too easy to destroy in my opinion.

Do you want to spend some money on your deck? Add some Snapcaster Mage

In my opinion Startled Awake  Flip is too slow and Talent of the Telepath isn't a good card you want to draw if your opponent plays only creatures, I'd add more mill cards, such as Thought Scour or Mesmeric Orb

Personally I don't like Sleep. Your opponent plays tons of creatures? Use Crypt Incursion or Fatal Push

A good sideboard can help you, so I'd add Leyline of the Void or Relic of Progenitus, Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass, Set Adrift or anything that could remove Leyline of Sanctity from the battlefield. Other suggestions are Damnation, Hurkyl's Recall (against affinity) and Murderous Cut

I am tempted to run Authrotiy in the side board as you are correct it would be advantageous vs a wide-aggro focused opponent. I think that my primary sideboard change to include that card would be replacing Hurkyl's Recall that being said my personal meta is pretty affinity heavy so atleast for my meta I believe the current sideboard is better. Notably there is an argument for adding more creature interaction to buy us time. Perhaps in a future build. As for my records at FNM, the best I have managed with this deck is top 8 #6 of a gathering 34 people in size.

A few thoughts ...

  • It's a meta call of course, but I generally prefer Ceremonious Rejection over Hurkyl's Recall ... partly because it's better vs. KCI but also because it has game vs. Tron and Eldrazi decks.
  • With apologies to veeonix, I'm not a big fan of Metallic Mimic in Tribal decks. It's great in an opening hand, but gets progressively worse as the game goes on, so I think it's best as a four-of ... and that has always seemed to be more slots than I wanted to dedicate to the effect.
  • I'm not sure, but looking at the Dispel, I'm wondering if Judge's Familiar might be better.
  • I'm not sure on Opt vs. Anticipate, but whenever I'm trying to decide between cards like that I just run a split for a while and keep careful track of whenever I draw one but wish it was the other. And I think either would be better than Serum Visions here, just because it seems this deck wants to run at Instant speed as much as possible.

Also, Shapesharer may be too cute, but could be worth a look ... seems like it could enable some powerful shenanigans.

Good luck (and good skill) with the deck!

Additionally, stax pieces and combos using Mycosynth Lattice to destroy lands/bounce whole boards with Hurkyl's Recall and Vandalblast can be a good way to stall until you can storm off

Repeal will only target one of the 0 mana equipments, and I'd have to cut something like Hurkyl's Recall for it. Its interesting, I just don't think it plays as strong in the deck.

Steelshaper's Gift seems like a Stoneforge Mystic deck card! But we can't have nice things in Modern. Getting only one equipment out of the deck doesn't seem like a good tradeoff at sorcery speed. Faithless Looting and Simian Spirit Guide do a nice job of grinding deeper into the deck, in my opinion.
