hullos, good ideas, but I think you didn't read Clone Legion well, since it can also copy an opponents board, I will still probably take it out, because its too expensive, also, Riverwise Augur goes infinite with Karn's Temporal Sundering , so I may keep him in for just a while.

there are a few extra turn spells that you are missing Temporal Mastery , Temporal Manipulation , Karn's Temporal Sundering . Search for Azcanta  Flip could also be really good here. Snapcaster Mage could help as well.

A good start to making this deck more competitive would be getting rid of unnecessary taplands; I'd start with the Azorius Guildgate and other guildgates replacing them with the shocks in these colors, Hallowed Fountain , Watery Grave and Godless Shrine .

Some recommendations:

Planar Bridge

I feel that Planar Bridge doesn't work that well in the deck, its just a 6 mana artifact that you have to wait a whole turn cycle to do anything. Considering this is semi-artifact based maybe you should consider Thran Temporal Gateway , it has the same problem but costs a total 6 less mana to activate.

Isochron Scepter A very cool card! Just noticed you don't have Dramatic Reversal in your list. Those two combo to make infinite mana, and when isochron is in your deck its definitely worth considering adding that spell.

Karn's Temporal Sundering This seems a little out of place in the deck, extra turns are nice but it doesn't seem like the focus, and to cast it you have to already have a legendary in play. If you're going to play an extra turn spell maybe consider Time Warp or Temporal Manipulation . (though I really like Temporal Mastery )

Mask of Avacyn If you're looking to give your creatures/commander hexproof definitely go for Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots , they're alot cheaper to activate.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation Seems like a win more card that just dies to removal, I think a counterspell would be better.

Thanks for the suggestions TheSlowestBro

I'll for sure be adding those capsules as I've had a mischievous Muldrotha deck in my meta. Time Sieve and Anointed Procession is a little out of my price range for now (I live in AUS) but are wanted includes.

I've been looking for swaps for Spell Swindle and Karn's Temporal Sundering as I also like counter magic, However I've mainly been on the lookout for budget tutors like Diabolic Tutor .

Plus if you caught this deck the other week, you'd see I had Smothering Tithe but traded it away for Blast Zone amongst other things.

I'll kick things off with a few decks I made so far. Basically, I have an extremely physically demanding job as a lead machine operator, yet at the same time it is a rather non-mentally taxing one as well. That is to say, I can shut my brain off and work just fine. So I spend my 60 hours a week sort of planning out various things in my life. One of the things I think about is Magic. So, I will basically mentally piece together a deck while I am at work, come home and draft it out. If I like where it is going, I continue to revise and improve. Lol.

Sleep Paralysis with Ashiok

Oathbreaker TypicalTimmy


This deck aims to control your opponent's most valuable resource: Their library. Coupling Ashiok, Dream Render with Glimpse the Unthinkable is absolutely horrendous. Ashiok gets a total of 5 uses out of his ability for a total of -20 cards. Meanwhile, Glimpse hits for 10 each time. You can mill out an opponent by T5 with this deck. Probably sooner if I work at it a bit more. The reason we run Ashiok, Dream Render and not Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver is because ADR exiles their graveyard. This, to me, is of greater benefit because it circumvents things such as Flashback, Dredge, Delve, and other such mechanics.

Kiora's Eternity - Please ban me

Oathbreaker TypicalTimmy


In this deck, we use Kiora, Master of the Depths with Karn's Temporal Sundering for infinite turns. We can accomplish this by the vast amount of ramp in this deck. The reason we want KMD over any other Simic Planeswalker is because she lets us untap both a land and a creature. This means we can untap something such as Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Priest of Titania , or Gaea's Cradle and Kiora's Follower , or Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun and Karametra's Acolyte . We sink all of this mana into Karn's Temporal Sundering , deconstructing our opponent's board state as we bring out gigantic creatures to win us the game. It can absolutely go infinite on Turn 4. See the spoiler for details! :D

Jace's Brain Freeze

Oathbreaker TypicalTimmy


Do you enjoy mill? Do you enjoy playing against others in a 4v4 pod? ... do you enjoy milling yourself?? THEN THIS DECK IS THE DECK FOR YOU!! Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is insane because he lets you basically win by losing! Now if only we had a method to mill a bunch... OH WAIT WE DO . These little buttholes make for great chump blockers if need be and allow us to really strike hard. If we are in 1v1 the deck functions as a typical mill deck. But if we are in a 3v3 or more we can actually mill ourselves to win the game because it's easier to take out our 58 cards than it is to take out everyone else's, lmao! We run Jace with good old Brain Freeze because we can Storm off a nasty combo for a ton of milling action! Seriously, Opt + Dream Twist + Thought Scour + Brain Freeze = insanity. Then you tap 4 Petitioners, followed by a +1 to win the game? Insane.

Oathbreaker Vraska

Oathbreaker TypicalTimmy


Vraska is a very popular Oathbreaker. I am running her with Assassin's Trophy because I don't want you to play the game lol. But, since you are getting a bunch of free lands, I can't have that either. So, the bulk spells of the deck are land destruction. Basically, we kill whatever we don't like, then we blow up their lands. Vraska, Swarm's Eminence was chosen for her low CMC, her ability to create deathtouch blockers, and her ability to grow them. We run a slate of deathtouch creatures, giving us an ever-growing boardstate. Either our opponent blocks and loses their creatures to deathtouch, or they let it through and progressively strengthen our side. Either way, we win.

Skthixx, Acolyte of Progress

Legendary Creature - Praetor

Skthixx, Acolyte of Progress has hexproof as long as you have three or fewer cards in your hand.

Exile a card with a permanent type from your hand, : Target opponent sacrifices a permanent that shares a type with it. If the card you exiled from your hand had multiple types, you choose what type of permanent they must sacrifice.

, : Draw cards equal to the number of cards in your hand. You lose that much life.

"The bane of progress is the hindrance of morality and empathy. Set those emotions aside and build off of the suffering of others. The future will thank you dearly for it and the past will scribe your memory into lore." - Skthixx.


I like to think he sounds 100% exactly like The Kollector from MK11, haha.

I'm super giddy about this Oathbreaker deck I just made. So the challenge is to make another deck-breaking card for it because reasons lmao!

By the way, in a playtesting I recently did I was able to cast off Karn's Temporal Sundering literally 9 times before I decided to reset the game because it was getting way to insane. I used a kicked Rite of Replication Priest of Titania while having five other Elves on the field - four of them dorks. I'd have easily won via Steel Leaf Champion or Kiora, Master of the Depths tokens, but I wanted to see how insane I could get. When I drew into an Elvish Archdruid and Karametra's Acolyte , I knew I'd draw out my deck before I ran out of Karn's Temporal Sundering s to cast hahaha

Thoughts on Archaeomancer type cards and Riverwise Augur ? The first goes infinite with a Brainstorm effect and Karn's Temporal Sundering while the latter also goes infinite with sundering
