Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

Cheers. On the note of Drain Power, ruling states that they can tap their lands but you get all the mana rom their mana pool anyway, so they can only use the mana to respond with either abilities that require mana (or abilities anyway) or to play an instant. It also combos really nicely with Leyline of Anticipation or any other flash effect for that matter, which can be brutal considering you can store mana too. Thanks again man, will have a change about and see how it goes.

If I had to pick cards other than land I think should go they would be Archetype of Imagination, Frost Titan, Hornet Queen&Hydra Broodmaster unless you added some token doublers like Doubling Season, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and maybe Lorthos, the Tidemaker but I can see him working ok. Rishkar, Peema Renegade can just become a cheaper mana dork however if you keep him I like Avenger of Zendikar. I would also take out Worldspine Wurm you dont need multiple things that stop milling and you have Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre already. Leyline of Anticipation is cute but Alchemist's Refuge is better so if you want that affect more often change leyline into Crop Rotation. Sandwurm Convergence should go for the same reason as Hornet Queen&Hydra Broodmaster. Clash of Wills should be Spell Pierce dissalow is cool but with all the 1 and 2 drop counter spells just use those... Swan Song is another I forgot. Id also rather have a Pongify or Rapid Hybridization over Plummet every time.
Drain Power seems awesome... Until you realize that your opponents can just tap all their land in response and you get nothing.

Also, please feel free to ask me anything you want to know or tell me your own ideas :D

After thinking about how that Commander will function in gameplay it occurs to me that if you can Flash him into play right before it's your turn or give him haste, the turn after having been attacked you can "catch" people with his ability easier. So Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation could be useful as well as one of the million and one haste enablers available in a deck of all five colors. The deck looks super cool by the way.

You could possibly add Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery so that you could play your life-total wincons (Felidar Sovereign, Test of Endurance, etc.) the turn before yours rather then leave them open for removal for a full turn! Love this deck btw been wanting do something around walls for a while now!

I really like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. Limiting your opponents to sorcery speed is very powerful -- not only do you not have to worry about other players' spells on your turn, but you can also counter other players' spells without interference. Flash is also really nice -- so much so that I recommend Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery. Another great wizard is Glen Elendra Archmage. It's great for preventing your opponents from stopping your win, and just for slowing them down.
I don't like Deranged Assistant because there is a chance you'll mill Laboratory Maniac. Realmwright, Sage of Epityr, and Dakra Mystic seem pretty ineffective. How well does Psychosis Crawler work as a win condition?
I also have an Azami deck: Amazing Azami.

I actually quite like this idea, but I feel a little awkward in some of the card choices.
Hypnotic Siren and Spreading Seas feel underwhelming for me- the lack of islandwalk makes seas pretty do-nothing, and siren is only really functional once you have two anvils running, which could be a removal spell, or chumps once. The lack of g/w cuts a lot of enchantment options, but there are some really interesting tools available that should help out. Eldrazi Conscription/Arcanum Wings and Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood have been classics in these colours for a while. Tainted Remedy is interesting sideboard, Underworld Connections/Phyrexian Arena/Dark Tutelage Dictate of Kruphix are their usual selves, and Paradox Haze could make those upkeep triggers, Leyline of Anticipation is interesting, allowing flash cloudstone shenanigans. Bitterblossom Provides board presence while being resistant to creature-removal, Necrogen Mists, Dictate of Erebos, No Rest for the Wicked Seal of Doom/Trial of Ambition/Oath of Liliana, Necrotic Plague, Endless Whispers Waste Not or Descent into Madness all speak to possible strategies.
One card that you absolutely must run is Whip of Erebos as a two-of. The lifelink keeps you in the game, and the graveyard recursion keeps constellation triggering. Gonti's Machinations is worthwhile against burn. Mimic Vat is good with mage.
I've been trying to get Blood Funnel working in these lists, but it just doesn't- the costs inflicted are too high, with boardwipes ending your game. Don't bother.
I can't think of anything else that isn't just the usual format staples and sideboards- good luck making it work.
