Kefnet the Mindful Discussion

Zaueski on Darkness Foretold

Witch is unoptimal, Baral, Chief of Compliance or Curious Homunculus  Flip are better options even if they are weak to Push. You're very light on counters, I'd be running Negates and Essence Scatters to help with the counter plan. Floodwaters is a bad card, dont run that. Lunar Force is also a very bad counterspell, letting them pick what gets countered is a bad idea. Your only draw is Illumination, Id add Glimmer of Genius or maybe a repeatable draw source like Jace, Unraveler of Secrets or Ob Nixilis Reignited. Sphinx is great, but its much better in the sideboard. You need so exile effects so I'd look into Scarab Feast for the sideboard. Run 4 Pushes. To the Slaughter is bad in non-delirium decks so I'd cut it. Tree of P is a bad blocker, its too slow for you to use effectively... Noxious GHulk is good but you should run 2... Behold is realllly slow, and ideally your hand is staying full so I dont quite like it... youd be better off with more draw, maybe something like Kefnet the Mindful? Its a much better blocker. Brutality is insane good, keep that at 4. If you go a higher blue focus, run as many islands as you can (Sunken Hollow and Fetid Pools) and then Engulf the Shore gets insanely powerful for you. Finally, for a deck like this you want 26-27 lands... Not everything I said can be included but it should give you a starting point. I'll copy and paste this to your deck so you can have it for future reference.

I also have a Zegana deck. It's one of my favorites and there are a lot of ways you can build it. I've found the new gods to be immensely useful, Kefnet the Mindful in particular. Take a look if you want:

First let me thank you for taking the time to review the deck.

  1. Gnarlwood Dryad I agree I put it in there because it had deathtouch and I thought it might make people think twice about attacking early, and my deck has very few 1 drops. With that said it's not a great card by any stretch. As far as more mana dorks, what do you think about Servant of the Conduit coupled with your later suggestion of Glimmer of Genius and adding two Aether Hub. Conversely I do have two Weaver of Currents as for the 1 waste I figured I could search for it with Traverse the Ulvenwald

  2. Thought-Knot Seer the whole gimick is you cast Baral's Expertise you bounce 3 of the worst cards back to hand, then for free you throw down the Thought-Knot Seer and they must then reveal said hand, and you choose the worst of those 3 and make them exile it. With that said i'm now wondering if playing a Hieroglyphic Illumination for free after bouncing back to hand would be good, or if I should remove the Baral's Expertise entirely in favor of a more useful 4 drop, or to make room for something else.

  3. I figure Cartouche of Knowledge would be my defense against flying or a way to get something over a board state I can't cast Crush in. I admit it's not a well liked card, nor that powerful. With that said should I not have some answer to flyers ? I could put 2-3 Kefnet the Mindful in, but I find it hard to turn on without withholding cards to play to get to 7. I mean we'll probably see a lot of Glorybringers at minimu, other than that i was thinking Gust Walker in W/R decks.

I am going to get some Disallow, but no don't have any yet, so I thought Cancel would be good but I can easily replace with Essence Scatter or Censor.

I do have 1 Pull from Tomorrow so i'll add that, and I do have 3 Hieroglyphic Illumination so i'll add some of those.

In regard to building a deck around Kefnet the Mindful I'll give you some starting pointers, and take a look once you'be put something together, but I don't put lists together for other people.

I have in the past, but it's not good for them, and time consuming for me. You learn more through your own building.

You're in with Kefnet the Mindful so you definitely want Counter spells such as Censor, Dispel, Essence Scatter, Negate, and Disallow. Not all Maindeck eg. Essence Scatter can go in the Sideboard ready for Creature-heavy decks, Dispel can go in the Sideboard ready against Instant-heavy decks.

You need Creatures in the early game, while you are waiting for Kefnet the Mindful to hit the field, OR you need to go full Control.

Here is a decent Control shell for you to look at: UR Fevered Visions Control

Pros have been running (Temur) decks like this: Temur Aetherworks by Marc Tobiasch

That's based around Aetherworks Marvel and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, but you might be able to adapt it for what you want to do. You could maybe put Kefnet the Mindful instead of Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.

Put a note on my profile once you've put a list together.

This deck seems interesting Argeaux. I was searching for a Minotaur tribal since I pulled Angel of Sanctions and foil Neheb, the Worthy in the same pack, and this deck has given me some inspiration. Upvote from me. I also wonder if you can help me with a sideboard with my deck Journey to the Afterlife and to build a deck around Kefnet the Mindful. I recently pulled a Kefnet invocation and I want to utilize it in standard.

gracacaldas on Control to Burn (Need Help)

Thanks cenazwalker. I'll try to go the first way first. Mby going 4 Thing in the Ice  Flip, 3 Enigma Drake and changing Unsubstantiate for Censor.

But i'm really inclined to Sell one or 2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance (I have 3 in my personal collection now) to buy 1 or 2 Torrential Gearhulk, and adding more counters like Essence Scatter, Disallow and pumping Kefnet the Mindful into the deck.

Thanks for the advice, I'll test it a few times and see how it works out.

Bababad on Kruphix and the Value Town Toolbox (Pararite)

Torpor Orb, Rest in Peace, Asceticism, and a litany of other problem children are becoming more and more common in my meta. I need non-etb reliable enchant/artifact removal.

Kefnet the Mindful and Slice in Twain out for some testing.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury has always been a maybe for this deck. Creating mana dorks, removing problem pieces, and a handy/easy ult while not really drawing too much attention makes for an extremely useful piece in this build.

Wickerbough Elder over Trygon Predator because I have no true reliable way to cheat the TP damage through if they have flyers and every time I copy WE ill have 2 instances of removal. Slice in Twain or Krosan Grip will replace it if I get repeatedly bitten by this or I don't like the feel.

Hey GoldGhost012! I have a normal Kefnet the Mindful, 2 Cast Out, Angel of Sanctions, Sweltering Suns, an Ancient Stirrings, and a Master of Etherium. If it's still around, I'd like to put them towards your Kefnet the Mindful invocation. There's about 12$ of space left, so is there anything in my binder you think you'd be able to find?
