Learn from the Past Discussion

Force_of_Willb on let's play a draw game?

I would remove Learn from the Past since you have ulamog you don't have to worry about decking yourself. Also Day's Undoing does not work with your general as the effect to end the turn stops any damage on the stack from Nekusar.

With all the wheel effects, I would try adding more effects that work with discard or from the graveyard: Geistblast, Shattered Perception, Call to the Netherworld, Dark Withering, Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Raiders' Wake

Collective Defiance, Dragon Wizard , Barbed Shocker, Shocker, and Robber Fly are additional discard/draw effects for opponents.

hetwiel Hey! I love seeing another Talrand user. You should cut the following...

Artificer's Epiphany

Desertion

Frantic Search

Gifts Ungiven - banned

Jace's Ingenuity

Learn from the Past

Overwhelming Intellect

Psychic Spiral

Springleaf Drum

Padeem, Consul of Innovation

Stormtide Leviathan

Treasure Mage

Compulsive Research

Wash Out

Archmage Ascension

Frozen AEther

Its more than 15 cards so you can decide which one or 2 you want to save. A lot of them are just bad or don't support you as much as other cards can.

If you want some more ideas, feel free to check out my deck Tisk Tisk Talrand for a competitive version of Talrand

Cut the following unless you can provide a good explanation:

Hanweir Garrison -- why??

Learn from the Past -- i'd put that on the sideboard

Catalyst Stone and Runic Repetition -- you don't have enough flashback cards to warrant these.

Infiltration Lens and Coastal Piracy -- like the Catalyst Stone, you dont have enough low CMC creatures to swing with

Backfire -- use something that deals direct damage in red instead of trying to do a round-about way in blue.

Thopter Spy Network -- also, why? do you have enough cards to warrant this?

You need more mass red-damage spells like Pyroclasm along with targeted burn in general (such as Lightning Bolt)

i'd swap Censor out for a harder counter, such as Mana Leak. even tho it doesnt have the cycling, counterspells are always helpful.

also maybe a few more creatures, especially on the defensive. they don't have to be 100% synergistic (if they were that'd be nice, but not required (also maybe use Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip)

Other than that, maybe some force feed type spells like Blue Sun's Zenith to ensure that they lose the same turn they're milled out. It'd suck if they were milled out on your turn and used Learn from the Past during their next upkeep to keep from dying.

krichaiushii, glad you liked it. I agree Psychic Spiral will be great to help against accidental self milling. I'll be adding it soon. Learn from the Past could be good too. I'll add that to the maybeboard. Learn would be good against graveyard abusers too, but my meta (same group every week) doesn't have a whole lot of grave shenanigans, and I'm adding Scavenger Grounds for that.

Both Learn from the Past and Psychic Spiral can help with your stated weakness to accidental milling.

Otherwise, I like it and will be stealing ideas for my Kami deck!

Cheers!
