Knowledge Exploitation Discussion

Pal00ka on Issa Thassa

Willbreaker + Thassa would be fun! Roil Elemental fits the bill nicely too.

You have a big emphasis on stealing/cloning opponents' creatures but what about their spells? Talent of the Telepath, Diluvian Primordial, Spelljack, Jace's Mindseeker, Spelltwine, Stolen Goods, and Knowledge Exploitation (perfect w Thada!) do just that.

Arcane Lighthouse is a good hedge against hexproof/shroud, Strip Mine, etc. in case Homeward Path makes an appearance.

I don't see much draw at all; I'd put in instants so you always have a full grip. Blue Sun's Zenith, Pull from Tomorrow, Inspiration, Dig Through Time, etc.

While counters can be seen as "un-fun," in blue you gotta run a few. I like the ones that counter and replace themselves, plus they hopefully mitigate someone getting too salty. Arcane Denial, Dream Fracture, and Interdict (can delay a combo for a turn to let politics do its work).

An interesting and fun take on clone aggro, +1!

Zimmers_0 I see that, my comment was because takeaseathoney said that the rebound was a copy and thus only gained copiable values. This would be true if you were casting a copy, but you're not, you're casting a card. And the other part was because BlueScope said that Knowledge Exploitation and the card you grab both gain rebound, which is not true because the fetched card is not cast from hand (you can never cast a card an opponent owns from your own hand).

Little late to this party, but rebound doesn't create a copy. You cast the card again, you're just casting it from exile. Also, if you cast a card from an opponent's deck with Knowledge Exploitation, you're not casting it from your hand, and thus it will not gain rebound.

a more aggro option for Hidden Strings is Hands of Binding (whitch i use in my rogue deck). Also you might wanna throw some other unblockable creatures like Slither Blade or Triton Shorestalker for the Stinkdrinker Bandit buff. But as I see your rogue deck is more of a control deck while mine is pure aggro with some disruption as. For a control rogue deck you should consider Notorious Throng and Knowledge Exploitation and maybe Explorer's Scope. i don't know if you know this card Thieves' Fortune but don't underestimate it, saved my ass a bunch of times.

Anyway take a look at backstabbed and say what you think :)

Funkydiscogod nice aditions to the deck, never knew any of this cards.

so i think im going -4 Wizened Snitches -2 Knacksaw Clique > +3 Lantern of Insight and +2Ornate Kanzashi

i'll keep Knowledge Exploitation for now because its the only good sorcery thief will see how it works out

i'm down for any other card you think will be a good add for this theme

Knowledge Exploitation should be in the sideboard. It's a lot of effort to go through, and I don't think there are many instants or sorceries worth casting for (assuming you're getting the discount). It's not like Cruel Ultimatum is very common these days.

Bribery or its budget replacement Telemin Performance would probably be better, but still sideboard for those decks where you know what you're going to get. Telemin Performance gets bonus points because it's lethal to creatureless decks. So, anyway...consider replacing Knowledge Exploitation with Muse Vessel or Commandeer or Gather Specimens.

I like Wizened Snitches and Knacksaw Clique, but what about using their noncreature counterparts? Lantern of Insight and Ornate Kanzashi have possibilities here, too I think.

If you're looking at Thieves' Fortune I'd just run Serum Visions instead. It's not strictly better, but it is superior in the vast majority of possible scenarios. Knowledge Exploitation and Earwig Squad are strong sideboard options for sure; I run both in the SB of my rogue deck.

Death from the Shadows (Rogue Tribal)

ScionLocke on Mizzix of the stuff

Hey there! Nice deck and i have a few recommendations: Mystic Speculation because i think one blue to scry 3 constantly is pretty good; speaking of scrying, Jace's Sanctum for when your commander isn't in play; Knowledge Exploitation because you have the other good "play your opponent's deck" cards; Spelltwine and Past in Flames to recur some good spells; and lastly Future Sight so the top card of your deck is also your hand. That's all i can think of for now, hope i helped!
