Increasing Confusion Discussion

I forgot to mention Increasing Confusion, Startled Awake  Flip, and maybe Szadek, Lord of Secrets and Nephalia Drownyard in my last comment. My bad.

Yeah it is, I'm guessing the 2 Increasing Confusion is a mistake also

If you are playing a slow win-con, don't rely on proactive cards that has no other purpose than winning. Increasing Confusion I'd say, is the perfect example of this. Also notice that Contingency Plan doesn't net you any card advantage.

But to be honest you've given yoursef quite a challenge, playing something like this.

Prized Amalgam is really good in this deck. I'd definitely suggest finding a place for it.

Also, if you want to go for the more dedicated self-mill route, Traumatize, Increasing Confusion and/or Mirror-Mad Phantasm all assist in milling your deck very thoroughly. :)

Hope this helps!

thanks for the recommendation. but i don't know if it Sands of Delirium will be better than the other win conditions that i have.i would say that the only upside would be that i can activate it at instant speed,(like Helix Pinnacle) but that would involve me having to cast it before hand and having a cmc of 3 compared to Helix Pinnacle which is 1 it makes it so that its a strict downgrade from helix pinnacle. and if they counter it then i don't really have the type of backup plan that Increasing Confusion has with its flashback. so thanks for the recommendation but i don't think so

tempest on Who Gave Cthulu an Isochron Scepter?!?

This looks fun :D

I do have "some" suggestions though. Your deck is based on fog effects. As soon as your opponent realizes that attacking isn't doing much, they'll hold them for blockers. The spots that your current creatures hold could be better used for other cards, like Azor's Elocutors or Increasing Confusion (can't be killed by burn). Dictate of Kruphix and Howling Mine are really just less efficient Rites of Flourishing. I also don't think Supreme Verdict is that helpful especially since the opponent's creatures aren't doing damage anyways. I know that Isochron Scepter + fog is fun and cool and all that, but the scepter isn't all that necessary with the amount of fog effects you have and the card draw you will have.

In addition to Azor's Elocutors, Increasing Confusion, and Rites of Flourishing, Jace, Memory Adept and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage are excellent for replenishing your hand and stalling for your mills. In all honesty, I think they do the job better than Narset Transcendent. I'd also consider Beast Within to convert something pesky into something negligible and Thought Scour as a cantrip that furthers your mill plan and can disrupt things like Ponder.

Ultimately I would remove (total 21)

for (total 21)

As far as the land base goes, you'll need to ask someone else, but I don't think the manlands are necessary and can be replaced by things like Glimmerpost, Cloudpost, and Reliquary Tower
