Inexorable Tide Discussion

Spirits on Mizzix, the Storm EDH

Hey etheraldreamer, Inexorable Tide is excellent, see where your going there. The reason I don't run it is simply its CMC 5, I'm hoping to already be setup with Mizzix of the Izmagnus around there. Longer term you'll get more value playing a Inexorable Tide.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards, excellent suggestions. Lava Spike + Desperate Ritual + Izzet Guildmage is an excellent kill combo. Adding it to my description above. The only part I don't like is that the Lava Spike, standalone it's not that great. Desperate Ritual although a little under powered, is still borderline playable card. Usually I prefer combos where each card is okay on it's own, but not always, see Pili-Pala.

Stroke of Genius has been on the cusp, for a long time. I keep questioning whether to get it in there or not. Visions of Beyond seems like the best remove for it, but I'm so low on Isochron Scepter targets as is. I've had 2 scenarios in 7 games now where i've had to wait 2 turns to pull an instant with CMC 2 or less for the Isochron Scepter so I know that I need more targets not less. Curious Homunculus  Flip / Voracious Reader  Flip is more likely.

I have Scour from Existence in my maybeboard, Purphoros, God of the Forge is a key reason why Scour from Existence is key. Chaos Warp for me just doesn't do it. In play testing I'm still trying to figure out if 1) Play for my infinite combo, or 2) Have control to stop other combos is the correct play. Thus far I haven't lost (yet, but been at 1 life). Can't remember all the commander's I've faced (No Prossh, Skyraider of Kher yet so that would be a real challenge). Some commanders: Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Breya, Etherium Shaper (seems to be the flavor of the month right now), Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Kaalia of the Vast, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, Karn, Silver Golem, The Gitrog Monster, can't remember any others. So verdict is till out on that. It's VERY good.

Fact or Fiction is funny, I just took it out of the deck Friday to test some other cards in it's place. I very much missed it in this weekend's games. Fact or Fiction returning to the deck soon as I figure out the removals. I'm considering removing the Isochron Scepter, that would change up a few cards that are simply there just to be targets, but then again when I think of an Isochron Scepter + Counterspell or Isochron Scepter + Mystical Tutor or Isochron Scepter + Cyclonic Rift... hmm, how do I not want that recursion, or a Visions of Beyond! = Draw 3 cards.

All Excellent suggestions, any or all should be in the deck. I'm still trying to figure out my fringe cards. Training Grounds maybe.

Thanks again for you comments and suggestions on my own deck. I like how many combos you have built in to just explode. Here's a suggestion in return, I just slotted Inexorable Tide... you can see where I'm going with that :p

only inexorable tide, but i'm definitely down to trade any combination of Inexorable Tide, Supreme Verdict, and/or Fatal Push that's fair, i believe i have 3 of each.

If no surgical, perhaps the Inexorable Tide, Supreme Verdict, and/or Fatal Push. Do you have any of my wants?

Looks dope, dude! I'd highly recommend some proliferate. Inexorable Tide and Thrummingbird are old favourites of mine :) stay frosty!

Wicked_N_Irish - I like Inexorable Tide a lot, it does massive work in this deck with even one walker on the field, but Sword of the Animist is a possibility. It does thin the deck a lot which is helpful. I am intentionally not running Proteus Staff because that makes the deck unbelievably repetitive and it already gets enough hate for being a deck that people end up watching you play sometimes. Essentially I am not running it for the sanity of my friends who I play the most EDH with.

A plain? Inexorable Tide or Sword of the Animist, possibly? I don't know how attached you are to Aurelia, the Warleader and Stoneforge Mystic, but if you get rid of them, you can run Proteus Staff which allows you to set your deck before you set off Narset's attack trigger.

I love your go-wide infect strategy; it's very innovative. The unfourtune truth that I think you'll face is that getting to 5 mana in a 19 land deck will be next to impossible. Because of this I would suggest another cheaper (in mana) card rather than Inexorable Tide.
