PrideGreen You're right about Worn Powerstone. ETB tapped is its Achilles heel and slows down the tempo of the deck, when we're always striving to cast Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign asap.

To be honest, I've never drawn Condescend in the games I've played. On paper, marrying Counterspell and Scry is awesome and warrants a slot in the deck. There are much stronger "hard counters" out there for sure, so am taking a compromise here to gain the Scry ability. Will probably test it further before deciding whether to axe it.

So for now, I'd try out Preordain over Worn Powerstone. I've ordered an Insidious Dreams and that'll go in once I received it. Then its headache all over again to decide which card to cut. LOL

I always appreciate it when folks take time to go through my Primer, understand the concept and ideas behind the deck, before making suggestions and/or cuts. So kudos to you for doing so! Thanks once again.

Conspiracy as some more redundancy

Insidious Dreams will let you stack the top of your deck

Sensei's Divining Top for more top deck manipulation

Levitation to give all your creatures flying

Insidious Dreams can win you a game.

I see that you're running Nexus of fate so you can run the Doomsday pile that's pretty popular that let you just take extra turns.

Dream Cache is a great card for this deck as it lets you put the big c m c cards that you've drawn back on the top of your library

Cover of Darkness will help your ninjas after they're already on the board.

Unnatural Selection is not as good as conspiracy are the others but redundancy is good.

Draco for the fact that popping everybody for 16 is really funny.

Soothsaying has a little bit of redundancy to manipulate the top of your deck.

Insidious Dreams can really shine in this deck but it's pretty expensive now that yuriko is becoming popular.

And for an alternate win condition you can always run a Doomsday pile.

Hey @Megalomania! Thanks for the comment- those are great suggestions and definitely cards I have considered. I'm not exactly sure if manifest is a mechanic I'm looking for in the deck since this seems to be more instant/sorcery based rather than creature based, but I can certainly give it a try! Vampiric Tutor is absolutely one of my next purchases for the deck- it just hurts to spend $50 on a single card so I've been holding out (notice it's presence in the maybeboard). Same with Enlightened Tutor! Although $18 with Enlightened hurts a lot less haha.

Interesting note on Insidious Dreams- I used to run this card in a separate deck but stopped when the first time it got countered (those cards are discarded as an additional cost to casting it- so goodbye many cards if this gets countered!). I've thought about Liliana Vess as a current budget tutor to put cards on top (although the sorcery speed kinda hurts compared to Insidious Dreams' instant speed). Nonetheless, thanks so much for checking out the deck and making the suggestions! I will absolutely keep them in mind going forward.

Have you considered running the manifest tech in the deck? It will help you play those high cmc cards earlier. Mastery of the Unseen, Lightform and Cloudform are some of the cards I have in mind. Also, you seem to have missed Insidious Dreams and Vampiric Tutor. It's a pretty good way to get high cmc cards on top of your library. If the budget isn't tight, Jace TMS should be an autoinclude.

Bident of Thassa is just better than Coastal Piracy

Cards that tutor for the top of the deck are awesome with Yuriko.

Matrixxx999 some brilliant suggestions here.

I've always like Mind's Dilation for its fun random effects but it always got axed when I'm trying to reduce the deck to 99... sob

Insidious Dreams is tailored made for this deck and is really a Proteus Staff Junior. Sadly, it's out of stock in most of the local shops here and I'm still trying to get hold of a copy... double sob Feel free to suggest some cuts if I've to make room for this card.

Opps you let the cat out of the bag about Armageddon and Cataclysm! They're perfect when I want to change gears from Combo to Control though any Land Destruction effects will quickly make you the No. 1 enemy in most play groups... (glares at the Kaalia player).
