In the Eye of Chaos Discussion

Mclovin8617 on Zur YT

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.

I have really been picking the deck up over the last couple months, plus had some more money/time to test.

Stranglehold, Academy Rector, In the Eye of Chaos, Kismet, Land Tax, plus Enchanted Evening/Aura Thief. OK now that I look at it there are quite a few cards I want to test. I don't know what your meta is like, but with mine Delaying Shield works wonders, As well as Overburden. As well there are quite a few decks that Containment Priest stops from working, so I'm giving her a try.

You could start with cutting all the mediocre planeswalkers and enchantments that are not doing anything for creating a lock (because you say that is your plan here).

You should have a look at these cards:
TAX: Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Trinisphere, Nether Void, AEther Barrier, In the Eye of Chaos, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Spelltithe Enforcer

UPKEEP: Smokestack, Tangle Wire, World Queller, Pendrell Mists (if you don't already have The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale), Mana Vortex, The Abyss

MASS REMOVAL: Armageddon, Ravages of War, Cataclysm, Sunder, Wrath of God, Damnation, Toxic Deluge

SLOWDOWN: Land Equilibrium, Ward of Bones, Overburden, Mana Breach, Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Humility, Words of Wind, Thalia, Heretic Cathar

...There are so many cards that can effectifely create REAL locks, but I can't see how this current list could do that. I think you should cut a lot of irrelevant creatures here, because the most powerful lock pieces are enchantments and artifacts. Usually people can't run as many removals for these card types to prevent all of them from staying on the table, if your deck is full of that stuff.

HezTheGod on Teferi, Mage of Stax enchantment control

Any reason to have thassa over Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (for hard locks with Knowledge Pool, Invoke Prejudice or In the Eye of Chaos), Teferi, Temporal Archmage (for manipulation of stax effects) or even Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for power other than budget or pure flavor?

I'd consider replacing Sands of Time unless there's something im missing about it, it seems pretty bad.

I would play stuff with global effects that don't depend on who controls them, rather than more of the cards, which are very bad if you don't give them away immediately...The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Pendrell Mists, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Trinisphere, In the Eye of Chaos, maybe Squeeze and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare. You can slow down the game very much, no matter if you or your opponent controls these cards, while taking advantage of the life gain and card draw from your commander.

NarejED I do agree with the more staxish cards like Sphere of Resistance and Stony Silence prob def going to pick them up. I posted this deck as it is right now and not what the finish project is going to look like. If need be, I can change the deck to the finished product thought then it wouldn't be a deck I own.

But as far as you say it is missing a lot, I do not believe that is as true.

While I don't have the aforementioned cards, I do have cards like Mana Maze and In the Eye of Chaos. I have in the mail cards like Stranglehold which can hose a lot of decks. in the mid to late game, I have Dovescape and at that point there goes every combo deck.

WHile I do have the stax element, I also have the control element and card advantage in Consecrated Sphinx, Cyclonic Rift, Mana Drain, Cryptic Command the various tutors I have to assemble any piece I need in that moment. the various artifacts that help me control what I am going to draw. Sensei's Divining Top Scroll Rack

I am thinking even a Rest in Peace as a lot of decks have some sort o recursion out of the graveyard.

Also building a deck on paper is a lot different then play testing. I have tested some cards and traded them out for others because they were just dead draws and I would have liked something in that place.

I may be biased and I can see that, but I am trying to write an unbiased view.

I do think it is missing some cards but not many. Compared to a lot of zedruu decks though it is the most competitive I have seen and also has been play tested against some of the top tier generals.

lets continue the debate :D
