Enchantment

If Leyline of Anticipation is in your opening hand, you may begin the game with it on the battlefield.

You may cast nonland cards as though they had flash. (You may cast them at any time you could cast an instant.)

Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

VexenX on [[Primer v0.5]]-Omnath, the Angry Wet Jelly Bean!

Brynx: You make a good point about Sylvan Awakening ! It turns Omnath into a wincon on ETB, plus we can swing in with our horde of lands! Thanks for the suggestions!

KayneMarco: Is the +1 button working? Your voted didn't seem to stick. Regardless, thanks for the +1! Glad you like the build!!!

dingusdingo: The reason I am not running counterspells here is because I don't see myself leaving much mana up for Instant speed effects. I would have to change the whole list quite a bit in order to do that. Although adding cards like Leyline of Anticipation , Vedalken Orrery , Alchemist's Refuge , Seedborn Muse and Emergence Zone is not out of the question, that is not what this deck is trying to do right now. The more I think about it, it might be cool to make this deck a Flash ETB Temur deck! I would likely have to add those four cards as well as 3-4 counterspells. Which counters would you run if you were me? This would change the deck quite a bit, so I have to be sure if I really want to do this... (R.I.P. Prophet of Kruphix )

Right now this is what changes I am looking to make. Please let me know what you think!

CUT

ADD

I will also be adding Cavalier of Thorns and Cavalier of Storms once added to Tappedout.

I've got some to recommend you on overall, but my advice would be for you to focus more on your objective, there somethings that are better on a voltron strategy, others are better on a more controlly deck, so if I were you I would think how I want to win with this deck and then would put more cards that synergyse with this goal and take out the ones that doesn't that much.

Since most of your enchantments are Aura, Umbra Mystic fits well here. Verduran Enchantress because they're never too much. Aura Shards is an excellent piece of removal and Grasp of Fate is also pretty solid. I really like Carpet of Flowers as a most diferent ramp in enchantments, it does varies on your meta, but I think almost always pay off since it cost you just one green. Greater Auramancy for protection. Leyline of Anticipation is pure value. Starfield of Nyx is an auto-include on enchantress decks, just a more affordably Opalescence

The new Kaalia is very nice; she costs 1 less mana, has vigilance, and has higher power and toughness over her previous incarnation, but, in exchange, her ability is not quite as powerful, but it still shall be very nice in EDH decks with her previous incarnation as the general.

Golos is also very nice, and I do appreciate seeing a creature that allows for five-colored decks in EDH that are not tribal, but I hope that WotC does not overdo those creatures, so that they shall still feel special and unique.

I usually do not play standard, but I am very happy to see protection back in that format; clearly, WotC has realized that that mechanic is not too powerful if used sparingly. Also, it is nice that Disenchant is now finally legal in modern; considering that WotC has not reprinted Holy Day in many sets, instead favoring Fog , it is only fair that white receive something in return.

Field of the dead is too strict to be very powerful; perhaps, if it required only five or six lands with different names, then it would be better.

Leyline of combustion is very nice, but the fact that its ability triggers only once per source of damage, rather than for each permanent that is targeted, severely limits its usefulness (compared to Flameblade Angel , whose ability triggers for each permanent that is targeted). Also, the reprint of Leyline of Anticipation is nice, but it does have me hoping that WotC shall reprint Vedalken Orrery , again, since that card is too expensive at this moment.

This deck does have some of the combos from 2 vasa, like first playing Humility then playing Opalescence , to beat down the opponents creatures. Or even just play on the opponents turns with Leyline of Anticipation and Seedborn Muse . I wasn't aiming for voltron but with the commander and Yavimaya Enchantress it's an optional win-con. The goal i'm looking for is the combination of the two decks, combo of the first deck and the value draw engine of the second deck, while being more consistent and smooth.

I suppose the win-con is to out-value my opponents, with voltron as a backup (mostly because its built into the commander).

BMHKain on OMG, more help? I fork ...

I'm just going to BUMP this as we've derailed this post, basically after the post after the OP. After the reveal of a Sorcery-Speed Timetwister known as Echo of Eons , I've decided to put that in my Aminatou Oathbreaker deck. That said, I actually wanted some advice to add/cut for 100 (Aside from Aminatou, who not only needs 60, but I'm keeping Ashiok, Dream Render , & Knowledge Pool + Teferi, Time Raveler for such insanity.

But now I ask you the following: Does both the Melek, Izzet Paragon & Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer both need the following?: Talisman of Creativity , & Fiery Islet ? I'm sure you'd agree w/ Talisman of Creativity , but if not Fiery Islet , what else would you suggest? Another Land? Another Spell entirely? What's your thoughts?

Yidris was already Compleated, & yes, I know that means an Archaic Variant of Completed. Which leaves us w/ Kruphix, God of Horizons as an -Cost deck. After Unbound Flourishing 's Unveilment, I decided to give the only Deity in the Multiverse that actually approves of any Planeswalker Life period; I flippin love Echo of Eons ; which warrants either Leyline of Anticipation or even Vedalken Orrery . But as a suggestion in mind, what cards in Simic so far in Modern Horizons seem great here? I honestly can't think of much, though I'd love to use Rashmi, Eternities Crafter in there alongside Wildest Dreams ; another Cost. But how does this deck handle self exiling their stuff w/o the need of Riftsweeper to bring them back? Rashmi doesn't even have anything to do this. I'm just saying this as I read something by The Lab Maniacs about this in regards to Deck Types. So, what new stuff from Modern Horizons would you recommend? Also, maybe I'll create a Sliver deck soon, at least, before the Big 2 Projeckts: My Superfriends/Avengers deck & a Tier 3 at least cEDH Boros deck. Now that is said... What idea do you have? & how is Rashmi capable of casting Wildest Dreams infinite amounts of times despite being in exile after the first? This is stated to be possible, but how?

Well, at least my Creativity is quelled for now. Now, what to do about my Dominance & my Indulgence ...

If you have a dedicated playgroup and they are okay with silver border cards I suggest

Evil Presents and Blightsteel Colossus As an Infect player it’s just funny if you pull it off

Other suggestions would be Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation as you don’t want your Infect creatures sitting around as targets for removal.

So my first thought is that you should run a LOT of instants, rather than just 2. Vial smasher can trigger on ANY turn, not just one, so running something like Dig Through Time would be... really good. Generally, you'll want these instants to draw you more cards, so Fact or Fiction and Glimmer of Genius are also fine choices. Cards with alternate casting costs also tend to have high CMCs: for example, Force of Will is a Lava Axe in this deck, as well as a counter spell. While Force may be a pricey card, other cards from the same cycle aren't. Contagion is well under a dollar, and can potentially also 2-for-1 with opposing creatures, while Pyrokinesis is even stronger. Misdirection and Commandeer also come to mind. If you want to get REAL spicy, Mind's Dilation is another good way to cast spell on your opponents' turns, but bear in mind this card tends to be killed pretty fast.

Flash creatures like Torrential Gearhulk also seem like pretty good ideas.

I suggest replacing Vedalken Orrery with Leyline of Anticipation . It's (very) slightly harder to remove an enchantment than an artifact, but more importantly if Leyline is in your opening 7, you avoid having to pay its cost. I can see a world where you play both, though.

I see you're running a few mana rocks, but I advise more. Two mana rocks tend to be far superior to 3 mana rocks, so Dimir Signet and Rakdos Signet are likely better than Thought Vessel or Worn Powerstone . Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence also come to mind. Being in green means you have access to a whole host of dorks, like Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Arbor Elf , and Elves of Deep Shadow . These 1-drops may not look like much, but being able to accelerate you into quickly casting your general and then the following high-cost cards is a good thing. Orcish Lumberjack is a personal favorite in any red-green deck. However, if you choose to go via artifact ramp and not dork-ramp, this opens you to using effects like Pyroclasm or Volcanic Fallout to keep opponents' creatures in check. Ancient Tomb tends to be REAL nice for powering out turn-one 2-drop rocks. Depending on how blue-heavy your meta is, Carpet of Flowers can range from good to a straight-up powerhouse. If you take this part of my advice, your curve will drop significantly and you will be able to run 32-ish lands with no real problem.

You'll also probably want a good card-draw package, if you're planning to cast a lot of spells. Azra Oddsmaker is a goldmine if you have an open opponent to attack, and black has access to enchantments like Phyrexian Arena . Night's Whisper and Ambition's Cost are also good, and work well with Kydele.

Delve spells will act sort of like X-cost spells, but be easier to cast late-game and harder early-game. Empty the Pits may be interesting, but you should also consider Logic Knot , Treasure Cruise and Tasigur, the Golden Fang . Tasigur will give you an out later in the game for excess mana, and will allow you a level of recursion. In order to make these cards powerful, you need cards in the graveyard. For that, I recommend Faithless Looting , Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip and Dack Fayden . While these last two are pricier cards, I think looting is the best here of the three, as you can cast it turn one to filter out a hand that may be too heavy in lands or spells. The flashback is also very significant. Jace is a powerful card in that he allows more card filtration on a permanent, and allows you to snap back a spell if you want. Dack Fayden is a boss in EDH, where stealing a Sol Ring is very common. So even if you don't need to filter your draws, stealing a rock should be an option about 98% of the time.

Speaking of card filtration, Ponder , Preordain and Brainstorm are all potent cards in any blue deck. While they may not work particularly well with Vial Smasher, they all work rather well with Kydele while also giving you a cantrip to cast turn 1. A lot of times, these are the cards that make a boarderline-keep hand into a keep hand for me, as they are extremely good at finding lands and/or spells as need be.

With Kydele, cards like Windfall , Wheel of Fortune and Winds of Change all become rituals in addition to their usual effects. Running Notion Thief in conjunction with these 'everyone draws' spells is... good. Similarly, targeting an opponent with Dack Fayden 's +1 while Notion Thief is on the field is a pretty good way to tip the card-advantage scales in your favor.

I like Whip of Erebos . You should consider running some Entomb or Buried Alive effects with it, as that would allow you to get some one-shots in with powerful creatures when hitting an opponent or just when entering the battlefield. Nicol Bolas and Massacre Wurm comes to mind.

Good luck with deck building!
