This deck is going to be put under changes in the near future, it will either become a general that is considered one of the more competitive mono blue commanders, Azami, Lady of Scrolls. Or I will be shifting this deck towards a Mass Polymorph deck.

Just placing these as lists of cards that I need/want to try out. The first one is just a list of cards that I wish to put into the deck to make it better no matter what route I take. (these will be cards that are going to be included very soon.)Sky Diamond, Whir of Invention, Snow-Covered Island, Coldsteel Heart, Buried Ruin, Chrome Mox, Dramatic reversal, Gush, Extraplanar Lens, Muddle the Mixture, Long-Term Plans, Frantic Search, Back to Basics, Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor.

This next list is the cards I would need to make it a Mass Polymorph deck. Mass Polymorph, Synthetic Destiny, Polymorph, Proteus Staff. Deadeye Navigator, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Blightsteel Colossus, Palinchron, Tidespout Tyrant

And lastly the last list is if i pushed it towards a Azami, Lady of Scrolls deck. /note for azami I will have to up the mana rock count by 5+ thus also including Paradox EngineMind Over Matter, Aphetto Alchemist, Cursecatcher, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Laboratory Maniac, Martyr of Frost, Sage of Epityr, Sea Scryer, Snapcaster Mage, Stonybrook Banneret, Trinket Mage, Vedalken AEthermage

This last list is cards that I wish to put into the deck when I clear up funds for this particular deck.Time Spiral, Scalding Tarn, Polluted Delta, Misty Rainforest, Flooded Strand, Cavern of Souls, Sensei's Divining Top, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith, Mana Drain, Force of Will,

This is quite an impressive deck my friend. I'd want to see this go up against my "WTF just happened?!" deck. because whats worse that a allies? One, that teams with Praetors, Eldrazi, and other baddies that spawn baddies, i.e. Jhoira of the Ghitu spawning Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite for the low low cost of two generic mana and waiting 4 turns :P.

See ya and this is hilarious!

Let me first add to your problem by saying that this is the sort of deck that would want multiple copies of Sphinx's Tutelage.

Also Ancestral Recall is an absurdly powerful card. Even in vintage where people do degenerate things on a regular basis you are allowed only a single copy of it. A lot of people might not want to play aginst you if they know you are running 4 copies.

As for cuts:

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur cool card but you have no ways in the deck to cheat him out early and it will be hard to reliably cast him.

Elixir of Immortality, with tutelage you should be draining their library faster than your own.

Cancel as someone who loves counterspells way too much i think you can cut the cansels. If you want to keep that many counters in the deck you could run one of the ones that's better than cancel like Dissolve/Dissipate/Scatter to the Winds

2x Font of Mythos: having it as a 4 of might be a bit excessive

Yeah, I can definitely see a lot of things I might tweak. I have one of the 'combo' Animar decks, so you can see how different it is: Bouncy EDH 2.0

I think the first major difference I would go for is to try and minimize the number of creatures with low colorless costs. Something that is 2RG is objectively worse than 3G in an Animar deck if the effects are similar.
Other than that, more technology. I would pick creatures that do cool things as well as have bodies. The impact something like Garruk's Horde can have on this deck is huge, particularly if you're dropping him in for GG. How about Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for UU? Or Duplicant for 0?

My deck runs heavily off of bouncing things, so I can tell you it is a great mechanic with Animar. The Onnas in particular can get hilarious if you can start chaining them.

Lastly, more draw tech. You may be dumping your hand fairly quickly so you want to be able to refill as much as possible.

I like Delay more for its versatility, personally. I'm going to play in the c/edh tourney, so I'll keep you posted on it. Early game Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur (like T2-4) is super back-breaking for opponents. Holy hell. Just got to do it for the first time, and it's disgusting. You basically have your choice at how you'd like to win at that point.

Yeah, I noticed the mana thing, but I feel like you would've had that game anyway? Seemed like you were quite far ahead off the back of that Mystic Remora.

Ok. I have changed the Doomsday pile, due to problems with the original one. The pile is now:Ideas Unbound Lion's Eye Diamond Street Wraith Call to the Netherworld Laboratory Maniac. Also, I originally used Sygg, River Cutthroat as the commander, because he was cheap, and could be sacrificed to Polymorph. The original idea if the deck was to have Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur as the only creature, and to Polymorph Sygg, River Cutthroat into him as fast as possible. I quickly realized that reanimator would be faster. I'm considering changing the commander back to Sygg, River Cutthroat just because he's 1 mana cheaper.

Delta-117 on Which booster box to buy

2 weeks ago

Strangely enough here has been my encounters with opening masterpieces/expeditions.

Like 2 1/2 years ago when I still was fairly new to magic I had my brother buy me 2 BFZ packs as a gift during the holidays and the second one turned out to be a Windswept Heath. I regret later when I knew its value selling it for some cards such as a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Spawnsire of Ulamog, etc, which turned out to be a bad idea as me and several other friends only played casually and never was at first aware of formats such as Edh,standard and modern. Later when we became aware of standard, and modern I couldn't in fact use some of these cards either because they weren't all that viable or legal. Now I only have kept the Praetor's and sold the rest.

Then during Oath of the Gatewatch, I attended a Fnm where we did something a bit different for a draft. We did a "whacky draft" where everyone would get 3 standard legal packs, back when DTK was still around. It was absurd what I opened, first BFZ pack was a Prairie Stream expedition, followed by a Fetid Heath in the Gatewatch pack! My third DTK pack still turned out to be an Atarka's Command too. I should have kept these maybe for commander, but I traded them for a bunch of standard stuff which nearly all of it has gone down in value. Wish I had these still for my Atraxa Edh deck that I now have.

Next I got a Sword of Feast and Famine at my third Kaladesh prerelease of a day and as well as two other mythics (Noxious Gearhulk and a Metallurgic Summonings)in my other packs, with that I rather easily went 4-0!

As you can see, all of these have not been from booster boxes. I bought my first box from Oath of the Gatewatch, and my second with aether revolt and so far I have had no luck with opening another, so it's not worth buying one just in the hopes of getting one of those at all. I still want my masterpiece Wurmcoil Engine however :(
