Lantern of Insight Discussion

Cereal_Killer on Daxos of Meletis

Since your idea is to beat your opponents with your commander, why don't you make it a bit more voltron with cards like:

Auramancer

Mother of Runes

Aqueous Form

Field of Dreams

Hyena Umbra

Steel of the Godhead

Sword of Feast and Famine

Lantern of Insight

For board swipe, counters and draw cards:

Cyclonic Rift

Disallow

Render Silent

Unexpectedly Absent (cause you put the card you want to steal on top of it's owner's library just paying two mana and chosing X = 0)

Ponder

Preordain

Settle the Wreckage

Sensei's Divining Top

For some good lands I'd suggest:

Academy Ruins

Celestial Colonnade

Ghost Quarter

Field of Ruin

Strip Mine

Hallowed Fountain

Mystic Gate

Nimbus Maze

Ancient Tomb

Command Beacon

Also consider a bit more topdeck manitpulation and shuffle effects like Brainstorm,Ponder, and Lantern of Insight.

Use Grindclock instead of Millstone, because it doesn't take mana to use it, and if you don't need to mill you can just add a charge counter for future turns to speed up the kill.

Madblind Mountain can be a way for you to reset your library if you spy yourself and don't like what's on top. Also Lantern of Insight can be a nice backup to the Orcish Spy.

No, you're right, that makes sense. I mean, Jace, the Mind Sculptor's ultimate and Pyxis of Pandemonium both exile cards and can thus get rid of Emrakul, but you make a valid point. I'll put in a Pyrite Spellbomb not just because of that, but because I'm a little paranoid someone will Surgical Extraction the Lantern of Insight.

I feel like leaning heavier on a combo style with Mind Funeral/Bitter Ordeal would do a lot to help consistancy here. Having the persistant crab/orb threat, while keeping a hand full of disruption and looking for a 5-8 mana instant speed 'exile lands, mill to lands' plan seems strong.

I'd look at ad nausiem for manabase and card options- their combo protects itself more than yours, running things like Lotus Bloom and Pentad Prism to power out a Haunting Echoes or Sadistic Sacrament with the option of jamming a damnation into a Damnation/Bitter Ordeal kill.

The big thing to look for is ways to make psychogenic probe less of a dead draw. A lot of people might hate me, but this might be better as a Lantern of Insight list- looking for topdeck threats, trying to reach topdeck mode, and steadily chipping away at your opponent.

Looking at other options like Cosi's Trickster could give some much needed board presence and life point threat on the side, and provide additional ordeal payoff.

The big battle is that trying to mill out an opponent and deal damage to them tends to split your deck's power, and without multimodal spells that give you options on both (none spring to mind, so I'm guessing they haven't been printed yet), 'purer' mill strategy cards are unlikely to play well in a list with probe/ordeal. Maindecking a 'blank your opponents hand by exiling graveyard stuff' sounds good in theory, but our meta at the moment includes a lot of decks which put creatures on the board right away and start swininging, so its likely a longer term strat in a deck running a creature disruption core.

Good luck with the list, and i hope you get it running well- please update with the results of whatever testing you do.

Maybe Lantern of Insight? Along with a haste enabler like Swiftfoot boots or Hammer of Purphoros, you can choose the opportune moment for Etali to hit the field and smash. It's a small tech card of mine - +1, love my big boy Etali

Not really much to say if I'm honest. It does look like you were using cards that you already own, such as Faerie Macabre and Dusk Legion Zealot, as they don't really have any internal synergy.

If you're asking for tips on what you should buy, cards like Lantern of Insight can help you make sure you're not going to give that Rakdos, Lord of Riots player a free Emrakul. Lens of Clarity could guarantee a sexy 7 drop rather than lands, and maybe more artifact ramp just so you can hard cast some of those fatties if they end up in you hand: Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Star Compass, Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo are some sold budget options. Also: run more eldrazi! If you don't want to fork out your life's savings for an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, a Pathrazer of Ulamog or It That Betrays are some thicc boys.

Also, Primal Surge and Genesis Wave :3
