In the Eye of Chaos Discussion

Amyas Bear Umbra seems verrrrry powerful, especially in EnchantmentsMatter.dec

And that sounds great; I had recently made some of these changes to reflect my meta. In the Eye of Chaos was a sweet find I saw in Legacy Enchantress, and I had recommended this to another Muldrotha user who’s also building an enchantress deck. It’s just such a powerhouse vs control.

If you want something real gross against control decks: In the Eye of Chaos

This one is costly, but it would be pretty sick in your deck, a la Equilibrium:

SurpriZe If I had any card regardless of price it would be 100% The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale. The card does so much for so little investment on my board and is an added STAX card to boot. Other cards I think would be fun would have to be Illusionary Mask as an alternate way to get Blightsteel Colossus into play as well Power Artifact and Transmute Artifact for mana generation through phasing as well as another semi tutor for handy artifacts.

In regards to Mindslaver, its still in the deck list because I haven't updated it partly due because I haven't gotten the chance to do so. I have replaced it with In the Eye of Chaos a much more disruptive card than Mindslaver.

There were a couple of cards I thought might be fun, and I also ran a brief search for "whenever a player", and included some notable ones as well:

  • Storm Cauldron--while normally this is super annoying, it can enable landfall shenanigans.

  • Hive Mind--if you want chaos, this is a great card to add. Suddenly there are a 5 copies of Counterspell flying around at one another? Sounds like fun.

  • Dovescape - No clue if this card would be worth the high mana cost, but it seems like it would fit with this deck.

  • Eye of the Storm sounds like it could grow out of control extremely rapidly.

  • In the Eye of Chaos - Giving players security against instants seems like a pretty strong enabler.

  • Overburden is a particularly powerful card against aggro, and can slow down players who might otherwise steamroll the competition in the early game.

There were some more potential additions using that search, and similar searches could be run by replacing the word "player" with "creature" or a different card type.

Another thing to consider: Perhaps an enchantment adding lifelink to Karona. Then other players are encouraged to attack with her, as she gains them life.

As an aside, +1 for using Karona as your general. She is one of the more interesting cards Magic has ever printed, and I love to play her as my commander (personally, I use her as a voltron commander, in an attempt to quickly rack up 21 commander damage through attacking on each player's turn).

Consider stax effects like Energy Flux, Lunar Force, Mana Vortex, Reparations, Rule of Law, In the Eye of Chaos? Also what's with the cycle/discard theme? Seems out of place.

BTW love your videos! Keep it up!

In the Eye of Chaos is very clever, but keep in mind that if someone removes Taigam before your next upkeep, you'll have to pay the X for each of your rebounded instants. Same concept for Chalice of the Void.

Some ideas:

Things you could cut:

  • Scroll Rack, It's good, but you have a ton of draw already, and it doesn't interact with much else here.

  • Silence, Maybe. Your stuff is uncounterable anyway.

  • Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time, These two might be more difficult to cast the turn you want to, since all your other spells are going into exile for a turn.
