Increasing Ambition Discussion

ST4R3 on ~$200 competitive Kess Storm

What about an Increasing Ambition? seems like a great tutor with Kess' ability.

I feel like Kess, dissident mage would just be a better commander for this deck overall. If you're going for Storm as a win condition, you'd benefit from a lot of 1 or 2 mana draw spells such as: - Ponder - Opt - Frantic Search (3 mana, but it pays for itself) - Gitaxian Probe - Faithless Looting - Impulse - Serum Visions - Thought Scour

Cards that make instant/sorcery cards cheaper such as: - Baral, Chief of Compliance - primal amulet - Jace's Sanctum - Nightscape Familiar - Sapphire Medallion, Ruby Medallion, and Jet Medallion - Arcane Melee (This one does benefit all players, not just you)

Instants and Sorceries that give you mana, or cards that pay for themselves: - Dark Ritual - Cabal Ritual - Dark Petition - Seething Song - Desperate Ritual - Pyretic Ritual - Priest of Urabrask - Rewind - Unwind

Cards that copy your instants and sorceries: - Thousand-Year Storm - Swarm Intelligence - Dual Casting - Increasing Vengeance - Doublecast - The Mirari Conjecture (Also recurs instants/sorceries from your graveyard, which, while is nice, isn't really that helpful as Kess (if you make her your commander) can just cast them from your graveyard anyway).

Some cards that are just very good in Kess decks should you switch to her: - Increasing Vengeance - Increasing Ambition - Entomb - Forbidden Alchemy - Intuition - Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip - Mizzix's Mastery - Past in Flames

SuperSaiyn7 thanks for the suggestions, an idea I had in mind for lots of my removal spells was replacing them with some more counterspells to make sure no one can do anything I consider threatening. Raider's wake is a card I've considered on and off for a while. Liliana's caress is a card that is surprisingly hard to find in my area, so I've settled with Raiders wake. I just need some more ideas as to what I should add into the deck, like the sort of feel is to cast big splashy spells that mechanically reflect Bolas. So like for example- Increasing Ambition reflects Bolas' ambitions. if you have any ideas then let me know asap.

I'd keep under the floor boards as it's a decent card and i think you can keep the cards with cycling as long as your not playing the card becuse it has cycling like us get rid of razaketh's rights for a cheaper tutor like Diabolic Tutor or Diabolic Revelation I'll personally like Increasing Ambition and Dark Petition

Also a bunch of cantrips would not be amiss in any kess deck. That way you can push through your deck til you get what you want or to one of your many tutors. Ponder, Preordain, Opt Faithless Looting, Anticipate, Peek, Serum Visions, Gitaxian Probe. You could also add in a few artifact cantrips for the tezz ult beatdown plan Ichor Wellspring, Elsewhere Flask, Tsabo's Web, Aether Spellbomb, Nihil Spellbomb.

Increasing Ambition and Increasing Vengeance also work really well with kess due to the fact that she can cheat the flashback cost and you still get the extra benefit you normally get from flashing them back.

A tutor like Increasing Ambition could also be nice, to search up things like your enchantments that make everything Ninjas

You should add Anguished Unmaking and Utter End for sure. Final Parting would also be great here. Kokusho, the Evening Star has gone down in price so that would be a good add. Gonti, Lord of Luxury would also be pretty solid. Unburial rights and Living Death are also pretty solid and I like Increasing Ambition too. Noxious Gearhulk could be pretty dirty too. Artisan of Kozilek and Oblivion Sower might not be bad either. Since karador casts, bringing back artisan allows you to reanimate two things from your graveyard with Karador, and the sower is something ive been testing lately that I have been kind of liking.
