Increasing Ambition Discussion

At least you are honest about it haha. I did the same thing with Feelin' Triskey +1 for honesty there.

On another note, some more tutors, and re-animate effects might helps a good bit. Reanimate, Animate Dead, or some of the many other options.

Increasing Ambition, Diabolic Revelation, and Demonic Collusion are 3 very good budget options.

Increasing Ambition for tutoring

why not Triskelion for an instant win with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

I made two changes to the deck yesterday: added a Sheoldred, Whispering One and finally added a Vigor too - thanks again Krob86 for your suggestion.

I cut Deadwood Treefolk and Increasing Ambition as I was never really too happy with those two cards.

Sounds like Power Artifact is the next card to order then :P

Also, I don't think its worth runnign Liliana Vess. You may as well just run Increasing Ambition or Diabolic Tutor as both of these tutor to hand.

Hey Dude!

These are just some ideas:

-Hickory Woodlot
-Peat Bog
-Golgari Rot Farm
-Mosswort Bridge
-Oran-Rief, the Vastwood
-3 Forest
-3 Swamp
+Phyrexian Tower
+High Market
+Reflecting Pool
+Myriad Landscape
+Tectonic Edge
+Barren Moor
+Polluted Mire
+Slippery Karst
+Tranquil Thicket
+Evolving Wilds
+Terramorphic Expanse

I think more sac outlets and lands that play better with Crucible of Worlds are a good thing. Tectonic Edge is another strip mine, and the cycling lands are still good cards when you draw them late game or if crucible of worlds is out they are a free card every turn. I took Mosswort Bridge out of my decks because it only did something I wanted about 1/3 of the time.

-Glissa, the Traitor
+Sidisi, Undead Vizier
+Den Protector
+Bane of Progress

-Deadbridge Chant
-Awakening Zone
+Dawn of the Dead

Deadbridge can be really bad if someone Krosan Grips it. Enchantments are pretty bad if you mill them into your graveyard, unless you draw Eternal Witness or maybe Den Protector. I'm not sure what Awakening Zone does for your deck; you don't really need it for ramp and your sacrifice theme is more about Jarad than Grave Pact.

-Grisly Salvage
-Diabolic Tutor
+Satyr Wayfinder
+Increasing Ambition

This tutor still works if you mill it into the 'yard. Satyr wayfinder might still work if you mill it into the 'yard.

Other thoughts
If you put Craterhoof Behemoth into the deck, you'd have another two-card win-con with Avenger of Zendikar. If you are going to run the avenger anyways, you might consider getting rid of old "mike and trike," putting the behemoth in, and having an extra card slot a creature or whatever. Mike and trike is an easier kill though. If you have either of these, Tooth and Nail is an incredible card.

So all I can come up with is Time of Need. Time of Need is extremely cheap, will bring my win condition right out, but cannot be used to bring out other parts of the combo nor the time stealing cards.

There's also Increasing Ambition... which is costly at 5, but it can be flashbacked for one of each mana using Fist of Suns to pull 2 more cards. I don't know if that is more efficient than Bringer of the Black Dawn which allows you to Vampiric Tutor every upkeep...

Megalomania on 2015-04-01 update of Apocalypse Project

My goal for the changes is to make the deck run even faster. To do this, I decided to run as much draw engines as I can to ensure I don't miss land drops and have counterspells in my hand when I go for my combos.

Greed is just too slow for me. Even Necropotence is now on the chopping block. I ALWAYS get a ton of hate so my games are always a race against time.

Increasing Ambition's cmc is just too high for me. I am rarely able to use Mystical Tutor's flashback ability so I doubt i'll be able to use Increasing Ambition's either.

Dark Tutelage is not that bad especially with Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top in the deck.

You are right about Minds Aglow. I will probably just replace it with Trickbind or Stifle.

I have been trying to convince my playgroup to allow wishboards but it seems none of them are interested.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm open to listen if anything else comes to mind.
