Ivory Tower Discussion

Philoctetes I added the following cards because I already have them or they are cheap: Caged Sun , Ivory Tower , Thaumatic Compass Flip, Basalt Monolith , Clever Impersonator , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Viseling , As Foretold , Mystical Tutor , Swan Song , Terrain Generator .
Ahh and I took this card Sunstone , because I do not have snows lands and ~27 are a little pricey for me.

Hey, so if you're wanting to paruse cards chosen for a deck where you draw a lot, peep my Kami of the Rising Tides. It's built around that, although remember I play casually so not hyper-competitive. It's also got some return type stuff and interesting counterspells and combat tricks.
And as far as life gain, I will reiterate my previous suggestion of Ivory Tower. If you usually have a full (over 7+) hand you will gain plenty.

Thursday night report, so much mana!
Tonight, finally added Crypt Ghast (replaced Ivory Tower) as I also put in Cabal Stronghold. Wow, amazing! I mean, no duh, right? I had Crypt Ghast most of the game and untapped a turn or two with those newly acquired cards plus Caged Sun and Cabal Coffers. Mike was borrowing my Kynaios and Tyro of Meletis deck and had the Insurrection but that was effectively countered by my Sudden Spoiling. I untapped and attacked, eliminating Arvad the Cursed because Angela's top deck was revealed by Brendon's Daxos of Meletis techy Lantern of Insight to be Urza's Ruinous Blast. After a Corpse Harvester sacrifice, Sheoldred, Whispering One reanimated Gray Merchant of Asphodel for the win. I was drowning in mana for enough turns to have over 20 devotion.
Of course, the previous game was more ignominious as I used Sidisi, Undead Vizier to get Bojuka Bog for Tori's Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck rather than Cabal Coffers to further my own agenda. She was at a low enough life total I need not have done that. Kothophed, Soul Hoarder was then my final undoing as Tana, the Bloodsower had four swords equipped and enough tokens with a sac outlet to finish me off.

A draw engine is a two card synergy that results in repeatable card draw. I run a Mardu deck so most of the cards will be in colors. I've numbered each engine so you just need to post the engine number followed by your personal score for each. (Feel free to skip any since the list is lengthy. No card is mentioned more than once however.)
A score means the draw engine is janky, unreliable, clunky, inefficient, etc. Basically an engine you'd never consider running under any circumstance. A score means the draw engine is consistent, reliable, fast, and effecient at drawing cards. This score signifies a considerable auto-include for any EDH deck.
Not all draw engines need to be rated. Rating the ones that are the most interesting will do. This feedback will be crucial for other people when considering what draw engine to use for their decks.
