Laboratory Maniac Discussion

bbr15 on Hermit's Breakfast

I had a sudden realization while playtesting this deck. if you need the Laboratory Maniac win, couldn't you get Cephalid Breakfast + Grand Abolisher + Hapless Researcher, mill over Narcomoeba to put it into play and sac Breakfast + Narco to flashback Dread Return on Lab Man? It allows you to lab man in complete safety.

I don't know that we need a ton of redundancy of 'no max hand size' since wheels don't put us over that. I have a Reliquary Tower in case Rhystic Study, Mind's Eye, or Consecrated Sphinx get out of hand. I actually had Jin in but I'm kicking around the idea of jamming Omniscience and Laboratory Maniac and that would likely kick Jin out.

Hey sweet oloro deck now by potent do you mean more controlling? ie:Winter Orb + Tangle Wire Or more of the Omniscience + Laboratory Maniac Win more combo? But for your land base I think you're fine unless you wanna upgrade to your shock lands(Hallowed Fountain,Godless Shrine and Watery Grave) or the Guild Gates cycle(Azorius Guildgate,Orzhov Guildgate and Dimir Guildgate). Though for a good addition I would suggest Glacial Chasm for some "you cant touch me" fun.

This is a pretty serious mill deck, so so you think that Startled Awake might be too slow? I have been wanting to make a mill deck for so long just have not gotten around to it. What do you think about self mill, with Laboratory Maniac. Not great in this deck b/c of the 'opponents graveyard' on Consuming Aberration but I think it would be a fun deck.

Actually, this deck can win in multiple ways, but the main one being a Protean Hulk package. The idea is to Flash (or sac) Protean Hulk getting Cephalid Illusionist + Nomads en-Kor + Hapless Researcher to put your entire deck in the yard, then you can Dread Return a win condition from the graveyard, like Laboratory Maniac, Necrotic Ooze... Blighted Bat is included because it can give haste to Necrotic Ooze once in the graveyard for only 1.

Many other cards can enable the combo, such as Hermit Druid and Buried Alive.

Laboratory Maniac is a dead draw outside of combo. The description I wrote above explains how to win without it.

derJ03 on Izzet a bird? Izzet a plane? No itz a Locust

Fiftyshotzlater I was actually thinking about adding Kozilek, Butcher of Truth but I wasn't sure if I need it with Time Reversal and Commit / Memory in combination with Mystic Retrieval and Recoup. But I will definitely think about it.

As for Laboratory Maniac: I couldn't test enough how realistic it is to draw that much, especially since I chose to not include the Skullclamp-Ashnod's Altar-Combo. But he is a hot candidate.

I'm not sure but the "end the turn and remove all abilities on the stack"-part of Day's Undoing also removes the Locust Gods trigger to create Locusts as far as I know.

And at last: I'm not a fan of Omniscience, Enter the Infinite and my playgroup is a bit weary about counterspells so Baral, Chief of Compliance doesn't fit that much.

Thanks for the suggestions. :)

Laboratory Maniac? Omniscience Enter the Infinite combo?could even throw in Baral, Chief of Compliance and some more counterspells for more of a control build. Day's Undoing or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Kozilek, the Great Distortion might be good too.
