Knowledge Pool


Imprint — When Knowledge Pool enters the battlefield, each player exiles the top three cards of his or her library.

Whenever a player casts a spell from his or her hand, that player exiles it. If the player does, he or she may cast another nonland card exiled with Knowledge Pool without paying that card's mana cost.

GhostChieftain on What are some reliable wincons ...

4 weeks ago

Im going to go ahead and not assume that you have anything quite yet and go through the common inf mana lines as well as infinite The Chain Veil . Sorry if these are redundant, but I feel like I shouldn't assume.

Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal + at least 3 mana worth of mana rocks= inf mana

Grim Monolith / Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth / Power Artifact = inf colorless mana

Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake / Palinchron / Great Whale = inf land untaps

Grand Architect + Pili-Pala = inf mana

High Tide + Palinchron = inf mana

High Tide + Capsize + Palinchron / Great Whale =inf land untaps

Deadeye Navigator + Deceiver Exarch + Gilded Lotus =inf mana

The Chain Veil + Teferi, Temporal Archmage = infinite pw abilities

The Chain Veil + Teferi, Temporal Archmage + Tezzeret the Seeker = inf pw abilities w/o confusing new players

The Chain Veil + Everflowing Chalice w/at least 4 counters+ Tezzeret the Seeker = inf pw abilities

High Tide + Candelabra of Tawnos + The Chain Veil + Tezzeret the Seeker = $$$inf pw abilities and inf mana

With inf mana, anything that has forced draw x or mill x wins the game.

Another reliable win con is Karn, the Great Creator and Mycosynth Lattice as long as your opponents don't have a board presence.

With inf mana Deadeye Navigator combos, you can add in Deceiver Exarch to any of them and tap down your opponents at upkeep or better yet Riftwing Cloudskate / Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all of their permanents.

You could also Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool / Omen Machine to lock them out of casting spells

Hopefully at least something here helps!

Demarge on U/W Control Midrange

jaymc1130 you seem to not know of the knowledge pool + Teferi combo. Knowledge Pool also can let you cast a normally sorcery speed spell when you cast and instant, but original teferi still stopped it because knowledge pool's ability is still on the stack resolving. the same concept works with queller and lil teferi. Here's a more direct refference.. Now curiously I'm wondering why the deck is being cycled with the incorrect comment sitting unanswered or not hidden.

As for the deck itself going miracle with Terminus feels sweet with Mystic Sanctuary adding to jace as miracle enable backup.

Strangelove on Roon of the Hidden ETB

1 month ago

Thragtusk > Arborback Stomper

Add Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , Springbloom Druid and Risen Reef ... Sol Ring ... Definitely add at least 4 more ramp.

There's also Eidolon of Rhetoric and Arcane Laboratory since you like those. Knowledge Pool if you don't like your friends.

Angel of Serenity , like Fiend Hunter , can be used (with its first ability on the stack) with Roon to permanently exile any creature.

Nevermaker . Slithermuse . Reveillark . Evoke is so good with flicker... have to sacrifice? How about flicker it instead!

Soulherder is a must. There's also Panharmonicon , Deadeye Navigator , Mistmeadow Witch and Conjurer's Closet ... Ephemerate ? Pan and Deadeye are tier-1.

Roon is crying for Lightning Greaves /etc.

Try limiting your good-stuff, avoid stacks, and actually winning the game (quickly). Do you want to control and grind the game out? Are there certain combos you prefer? There are so many ETBs to choose from, the best thing you can do with flickering is try to spike. The value will always be there for you; So how are you going to deal 40-120 damage?

king-saproling on Murder Suicide

This is very rad! You might like these: Nivmagus Elemental , Cephalid Shrine , Spark Double , Distant Melody , Banishing Knack , Renegade Tactics , Sunforger , Arcbond , Radiate , Knowledge Pool (when played after Hive Mind, but before a lose-the-game spell, it protects you from the spell while your opps will still have copies. also has interesting interaction with Zada/Mirrorwing as the originally-casted spell will still be copied for each creature, and potentially the second spell as well), Possibility Storm (works like Knowledge Pool), Dovescape (works like Knowledge Pool), Snap (potential for infinite mana. what makes it really interesting is that it untaps lands, so you can keep storing counters on Magosi and skip your next 1,000,000 turns. Why is this a good thing? Teferi's Protection), Guile (with Cephalid Shrine and your general, this lets you make infinite spirits. not great, but definitely weird!), Kaho, Minamo Historian , Mistveil Plains , Spellbinder

Jefello on Yeva Draw-Grow (Budget)

2 months ago

So, i've assembled the deck with some small changes (my pod has a lot, A LOT OF HATE so basically i needed to + wrap in vigor and sylvan safekeeper) but the deck is amazing. I don't win every game, after all i'm not playing a tier 1 deck on a competitive level but my pod has a good Power Level overall. But on every single game i've been treated as a "thread" every time. Thanks for the deck man, not only i've had tons o'fun but it inspired me on building a Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage but instead of combos, you lock the game (infinite turns with Magistrate's Scepter or locks with Lavinia, Azorius Renegade / Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool .

Demarge on U/W Control

hmm reading your fnm update if other counterspell decks are an issue, Dovin's Veto or Dispel are both pretty decent at protecting yourself. Though I guess I suggested that back in comment 7.

Hmm with you running 6 spells that combo with it I almost wanna suggest a single Knowledge Pool , when you have an opponent cursed or lil teferi down the opponent essentially can no longer resolve spells from their hand.

king-saproling on Ruric Thar's Guide to Punching Mages in the Face!

What are your thoughts on Knowledge Pool ? Could disrupt opponents while you beat their faces, and interacts with Ruric similarly to Possibility Storm. Also Helm of the Host might be worth it. Multiple Rurics? Yes please!

Gidgetimer on Choosing Piles with Lili

3 months ago

1 Welder isn't a combo piece. It is recursion.

2 You said you challenge me to find a scenario where making piles was more beneficial and I gave you one without much thought. TBH the untapped monolith is less likely than double welder.

3 My point wasn't that it was equally likely for piles to be as strong as choosing. The point was that it is possible for piles to be stronger in some scenarios. Therefore it is not as simple as "choosing is stronger".

4 If you don't like multiple copies of the same card let's do an Oloro EDH deck (again off the top of my head).

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

Knowledge Pool

Exquisite Blood

Vizkopa Guildmage




Hallowed Fountain

Ancient Tomb

Lili needs to deal with both a hard lock and the combo that the lock allowed them to get out. The one making the piles gets to decide if the picker gets to deal with one or both.

The point isn't that these scenarios are likely. It is that they exist and therefore the statement "choosing is always better than making piles" is false.

I am done giving scenarios in which you can make make piles so that either win or neither win. You were unaware that the situations exist and that is fine. You are now trying to act as if you had stopped at saying they are corner cases and didn't "challenge" me to prove what I said was true. They are corner cases. But they exist.
