Lantern of Insight Discussion

buzzgsm92 on Let's Rage Cage Bro! - Mairsil Artifact Combo

5 days ago

Awesome list dude! I've been brewing a Circu, Dimir Lobotomist deck focussed around Lantern of Insight control strategies, but Mairsil is a huge upgrade. The addition of red for Mairsil gives me access to some of the other infinite combos without requiring combat so I can run Ensnaring Bridge with ease!Bridge might even been a potential toolbox card for you list too?

Since your only 1CMC drop is Lantern of Insight and you want to survive the initial turns, i suggest you to use some black disruption spells like Inquisition of Kozilek

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.

There is a sort of deck that does a similar thing called Lantern Control, where you use Lantern of Insight and cards like Codex Shredder to filter your opponent's draws. Hope this helps!

first of all: love the deck. A+ love Avaricious Dragon and Sphinx's Tutelage.

second: ive tried Jace's Archivist and it is just flat out too slow. dies to anything. if you can't give him haste, he's a waste of time. maybe you could try him out and have better luck, but i'd just save yourself the trouble and dont bother.

third: is there a purpose for Lantern of Insight? i mean, besides just having the opportunity to bone the opponent from a useful card for a turn, in hopes of milling it later?

fourth: some grave hate main deck would probably be very useful, considering there are several decks in modern (really most decks) that capitalize at least somewhat on graveyard. you, essentially, are speeding up those decks' gameplans. i'm thinking Scrabbling Claws and/or Relic of Progenitus could be good for you main deck. i think Haunting Echoes might be too slow, as well, although you may have tested it and figured it was good enough. idk. Surgical Extraction is awesome, but i think if you cut the echoes, you could free up all those land slots in your sideboard for more useful sideboard cards.

fifth: other cards to consider: Visions of Beyond, Archive Trap, maybe some cycling spells (to trigger the draw off tutelage), maybe some madness cards like Fiery Temper.
