Idyllic Tutor Discussion

Since Doubling Season is so insanely good in this deck, why not add some more tutors to fetch it like Enlightened Tutor or Idyllic Tutor?

Nissa, Steward of Elements is so good at scry and ultimate is quite a surprise factor I may want to go up to 2.

Really liking the addition of Sarkhan Vol. He is incredible with any token makers for a hasty victory!

Not sure about Gideon of the Trials yet. I really like the Worship replacement that works with Oath of Nissa but Idyllic Tutor can help find Worship in a pinch.

Should I add the infinite combo Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft? I could also add some enchantment fetch cards like Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, Enduring Ideal, Lost Auramancers, Plea for Guidance, and Sterling Grove.

After having a couple of games in the weekend, I decide to update the list, with some cards out, others waiting for further evaluation.

-Power Artifact and Open the Armory: As a backup win-con, Power Artifact is pretty U-mana intensive, and the combo requires three pieces actually, outlet included, while out of combo the only usage of the card is to pitch to FOW, therefore, it shall be replaced by more relevant cards. And then, with one less target, I think Open the Armory might as well be replaced by a redundant haste-enabler.

-Recruiter of the Guard, Idyllic Tutor, and Drift of Phantasms: These cards always make me wonder, do I need a 3-mana tutor that cannot fetch me a combo piece (apart from Rest in Peace)? A lack of target costing no less than 2 mana may cause some awkward situations, so I decide to let them go this time.

-Hokori, Dust Drinker; +Static Orb: This slot is always a pain for me. Honestly speaking, I have love for neither, but I need something more than just Winter Orb to slow down my opponents. I prefer the latter mainly because it costs 1-mana less, and up to my knowledge, none of the decks, opponents' or mine, can find an easy way to break the parity. I could sit and test with it for the time being.

-Trinisphere; +Phyrexian Revoker: Without storm decks in the meta, I could find only niche use of Trinisphere, it might slow Sisay for a turn or two, but that's it. I think Phyrexian Revoker could do more or less the same, without affecting myself.

-Meekstone; +Supreme Verdict: Supposedly, Meekstone should be the 'silver bullet' against that beatdown deck, except it doesn't. Unless empty-handed, Omnath can opt to dump the mana after combat, therefore dodges the effect. I have no choice but do it in an old-school way, namely board wipe.

Palace Jailer and Jace, the Mind Sculptor: Mulligans included, I'm yet to see the two cards. Before giving them a try, they will stay in the deck until further notice.

Land Equilibrium: The card is good on paper, having synergy with MLD, and the deck's rather low land count. However, for one thing, it's a 4-drop, high probability of tapping out myself; for another, it doesn't do enough on itself, at least not good enough to stop someone from having sufficient resources to win.

Thanks for the feedback.

The list is pretty tight at 20x lands so I don't think that running multiple colorless lands is a good idea.Academy Ruins is the best option so I run it as a 1x-off.

In an earlier build I used Pentad Prism (a faster ramp than Talisman) but then I realized that being faster wasn't good enough as I couldn't realiably find my combo so I went with Anticipate instead.
Mind Stone is a bit slow and doesn't color-fix (I really need to hit by turn 4).

Artificer's Intuition is worse than Trinket Mage in this deck because it needs an artifact to discard and I only have the 8x combo pieces as artifacts, it's the same reason why I don't play Glint-Nest Crane.
Trinket Mage also blocks.

While Idyllic Tutor is a bit slow it is my best option to find Enduring Renewal so I don't think that splashing green just for Commune with the Gods probably isn't worth it (less consistent and more painful mana).
Bant Charm while flexible isn't good enough imho, Detention Sphere is better as both creature-removal and getting rid of opposing hosers like Rest in Peace/Leyline of the Void/Gaddock Teeg/Eidolon of Rhetoric.

I considered Wall of Omens but Remand seems more suitable as a catch-all cantrip that can delay the opponent.

The Thopter-Sword combo is soft to Stony Silence which this combo circumvents (one of the main things I like about this).And it

No, this deck is not standard legal, but it is Modern legal. I don't know of any other white cards that double tokens, but you could use something like Idyllic Tutor to find your Anointed Procession.

Hi, Emzed, Glad that you liked the deck, and thanks a lot for the advice.

Rather than a meta call, Containment Priest is more of a personal pet card having foiled a good number of Tooth and Nails when the playgroup was more casually. However, apart from hosing Derevi and occasional green tutors and graveyard shenanigans, I'm not sure whether the card is that crucial to my deck performance nowadays. Say If I'm gonna swap out the card, should I swap in some cheap counterspells or not?

Secondly, in my meta, owing to Brago not being the number one threat to eat removal on the spot, Sisay, that is, unless Cursed Totem 'd, I might be reluctant to run both boots. My preference on Swiftfoot Boots is that there were more than one Static Orb from both myself and the Derevi deck, and that I was too eager not to break the parity. But now I agree with you that Lightning Greaves is actually better, and I may try to swap out Static Orb for something not so troublesome to myself, with Derevi's swapped out earlier due to similar reasons.

As for the Palace Jailer, it's the card I've totally overlooked. In my opinion, it might create enough diversion to the beatdown player, I being monarch or not. I'll definitely give it a try, maybe in place of Lavinia of the Tenth or Treachery, due to the steep cost.

In order to give Palace Jailer a try, I'm currently considering replacing Rishadan Footpad, Static Orb, Lavinia of the Tenth with Recruiter of the Guard, Hokori, Dust Drinker, Palace Jailer. Furthermore, there's chance that Treachery may eventually become a Parallax Wave or, more aggressively, a Humility. I'm a fan of the latter one, simple and strong, but again, hard to break. I could use it as a last resort, when Strionic Resonator is not an option, hoping to hose the table long enough to assemble Helm of Obedience + Rest in Peace before death by furious 1/1 vanillas.

At last, I'm always sceptical of the use of Prophetic Prism. As a 2-drop that replace itself, with a meagre activated ability, it is the card that simply not good enough without commander presence. Some possible replacements are listed as follows: Ancestral Knowledge has more or less the same problem, if more mana intensive. Open the Armory might actually be good, being a tutor at least, fetching boots or Spreading Seas when necessary. However, the third possbile target, namely Treachery, is almost impossible to fetch and cast in the same turn, so this usage is niche. Steelshaper's Gift is a cheap, but narrower boot-fetcher. Idyllic Tutor can fetch any enchantment, but the cost is a bit more steep that the capability of fetch-and-cast is not guaranteed.

English is not my mother tongue, so pardon me for the glitches, if any. Thanks for reading. Any thought is welcomed.

Massive post concerning Grand Arbiter Augustin IV below. Tagging deadmanwaltzing and BigLupu as you guys are the only Arbiter players I'm both aware of and respect enough to listen. I'd love for this list to be longer. Feel free to add anyone knowledgeable to the discussion if you can.
