Kefnet the Mindful Discussion

Pabs4444 on UW Approach for GP Orlando

I would just like to mention that I do not have any experience playing high level magic, but I have watched a ton of it. With this being said I think having either some Nezahal, Primal Tide or Kefnet the Mindful would go well in this deck. Nezahal, Primal Tide moreso in the sideboard to help against those control matchups whereas Kefnet the Mindful is good enough to main deck as it does not die to your own fumigate and can be a reasonable clock on your opponent. Anyways, good luck with the deck!

Thanks for the tips and suggestions! I really do like the versatility of Vanish into Memory and will be making that switch for sure. Energy Arc and Herald of Secret Streams seem to be interesting, but I've had several instances in my playgroup where the flying from Abzan Falconer has come in handy on the defense, and the lifegain from Riot Control has kept me alive from minor poking that didn't warrant a removal spell. I may even need to go down my awaken pet cards of Coastal Discovery and Encircling Fissure! Mirrorweave might replace my Cataclysmic Gearhulk or Urza's Ruinous Blast.

As for your deck... it seems sweet! I think I'll even replace my Burnished Hart with a Thaumatic Compass  Flip. Would definitely recommend a Nimbus Maze as an untapped triple land for Kozilek. I also recommend Drownyard Temple just as a recurrable land. Cards like Anticipate and Winds of Rebuke seem to be underpowered as you have other cards in the deck that do their job better. Would recommend Metallurgic Summonings as a less frail Docent of Perfection  Flip or Talrand, Sky Summoner. You do have an amount of tapped duals/utility lands but how has Amulet of Vigor been? Then again everyone's meta is different so I don't know how low and fast your deck needs to be. My deck tries to be as creature light as I can since I'm usually trying to wipe the board, but Nezahal, Primal Tide, Kefnet the Mindful look good with their ways to protect themselves and to draw cards.

Regarding Seat of the Synod with your Trinket Mage - aside from the 3 targets: Mana Crypt, Sensei's Divining Top, and Sol Ring, O-Naginata will be a valid target once it's added. But I get wanting more options.

I did not consider a 1st turn play of Saprazzan Skerry, and I suppose in that regard it's all right, but I think you're right about Crystal Vein being a better option for ensuring a 2nd turn Kefnet.

Sphinx of Magosi's draw is cheaper than your commander's, but in thinking of that - what would you say to good ol' Training Grounds. Normally I wouldn't recommend it for a deck with such few activated abilities with colorless mana in them, but Kefnet the Mindful is your commander, so it would be relevant at almost every stage in the game. Again, not sure what I would suggest to cut for it though.

As for Nezahal, Primal Tide being cut for Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, that might be a good idea. However, Nezahal, Primal Tide is almost impossible to get rid of. In that regard it might warrant playtesting each to see which one outperforms the other for you.

I also read Kefnet the Mindful and I did not realize he returned a land as well. Patron of the Moon or Walking Atlas could kind of off set the negative side of that. Still stumped as to what to suggest to take out.

Herbysmoke on Need advice on card draw ...

Here's my deck

I need advice on what card draw options I should add/replace to streamline my Raff Capashen deck. Bonus points if they can fit the theme to be flashed in with Raff as well. Currently ordering a Rhystic Study to add to the deck, and it already has Nezahal, Primal Tide as well, as well as Treasure Trove and Kefnet the Mindful, though I'm sure there may be better draw options than these. All advice welcome!

Sweet looking deck. I play more of a storm combo version that's much lighter on creatures, but I highly recommend Kefnet the Mindful if you find that your hand is usually full. 3 CMC, flying, indestructible 5/5 that draws you cards is hard to beat, especially since it triggers Jhoira as well.

Its really nice to Play :)

but i dont like Culling Scales, because it kills itself and all your other stuff too: Porphyry Nodes, Myth Realized, Standstill and Detention Sphere

Porphyry Nodes and Supreme Verdict only affect my Opponent, my Creatures stay alive: Kefnet the Mindful, Myth Realized, Faerie Conclave and Mishra's Factory
