Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

Andar on Oloro Stuff

5 days ago

Outs:
- Chalice of Life  Flip: Isn't the worst card in Oloro, but isn't all that reliable either.
- Darksteel Plate: I've seen you play this card a bunch of times, and most of the time it just sits there, all menacingly. Problem is - your deck doesn't plan to use creatures often, so the plate also won't be used either.
- Dreamstone Hedron: Ramp is great, but expensive ones that produce colorless mana can be iffy since they're often easy targets right after you play them. Gilded Lotus can at least let you cast counterspells after you tap all your lands to play it.
- Orzhov Keyrune: This one is just personal preference from me. I don't like 3 mana artifact ramp most of the time. (Chromatic Lantern and Darksteel Ingot are much better) It's up to you if you wanna take it out or not.
- Sun Droplet: This card is very slow and you could easily replace it with something better.
- Subversion: It may seem like a decent drain effect, but it's not that great since it's 5 mana and makes you wait til your next upkeep before it does anything.
- Thought Reflection: Decent card, but 7 mana is pretty costly. Up to you if you wanna keep it.
- Celestial Force: It's nice to instantly gain life each upkeep, but 8 mana for basically just a vanilla creature otherwise isn't really good.
- Pontiff of Blight: Extort is nice for your deck, but your deck doesn't have many creatures to take advantage of the pontiff. Up to you if you wanna keep this guy if you wanna add more creatures.
- Skirge Familiar: I think this card would be a lot better if your deck was more combo focused.
- Azorius Chancery: These types of lands will flat out screw you over if they get destroyed or Blood Mooned.

Cards you definitely should add (won't cost you a whole lot):
- Crested Sunmare: Easily synergizes with Oloro and provides very solid creatures for defensive/offensive plays.
- Aetherflux Reservoir: The win condition you've been looking for. It's a pretty funny card honestly, but works very well with Oloro once you get him going.
- Alhammarret's Archive: Simply synergizes well with Oloro.
- Felidar Sovereign: Not sure how the others would feel about alternative win conditions, but if everyone' okay with it, this guy can most likely win you some games.
- Karlov of the Ghost Council: An awesome card. Can help control the board or becomes a big body to swing with.
- Delay, Counterspell, Swan Song, Negate: Good, cheap counterspells you should at least be running.
- Sphinx's Revelation: Put that ramping to good use.
- Anguished Unmaking, Cyclonic Rift: Must-have control instants.
- Supreme Verdict, Merciless Eviction, Fumigate: Excellent board wipes to go with Oloro.
- Clever Impersonator: This guy's incredibly flexible and can be useful in just about any situation.
- Mana Confluence: Almost exactly another copy of City of Brass.
- Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Silence, Temple of Deceit: These will make your mana base a tad bit more consistent while helping you a bit with your next draw as well.
- Diabolic Tutor/Dark Petition/more tutors: Your deck would be more consistent if it had more tutors.
- Brainstorm: Generally a good blue card to manipulate your deck/hand a bit at an instant.

Suggestions (Some are costly, but very worth it for Oloro):
- Grave Titan: Just a powerhouse in general. Just like Crested Sunmare, Grave Titan will give you excellent battlefield presence.
- Whip of Erebos: If you do add more creatures like Grave Titan, this card can be very good for your life gain strategy.
- Sun Titan: One of my favorites. Can grab back some useful stuff, even land.
- Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest, Auriok Champion: The soul sisters. You shouldn't include all of them at once though. Just keep them in mind since they're good against creature-heavy decks.
- Consecrated Sphinx: Costly, but worth.
- Kambal, Consul of Allocation: Punishes spell-slinging decks, and generally nice if he sticks around.
- Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim: She can be good if you can keep your life total high enough.
- Sanguine Sacrament: Pretty nice for the deck's game plan at instant speed.
- Demonic Tutor: Arguably the best tutor you can find, but the price tag will probably turn you away. But... Greatness, at any cost.. Right?
- Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Vampiric Tutor: Excellent tutors, but expensive (although Mystical Tutor is only around $5; not a whole lot compared to Vampiric Tutor).- Austere Command: Another one of my favorites. Very flexible, and doesn't cost a whole lot either.
- Torment of Hailfire: This card will probably make everyone hate you, but it's a fantastic card nonetheless.
- Leyline of Anticipation: One of the best blue enchantments in my opinion. Allows you to intimidate everyone just by playing a land on your turn.
- Crawlspace: Good against creature-heavy decks.
- Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone: Some decent and cheap mana rocks if you want more ramp.
- Decree of Pain: A good tempo swing in your favor if there are a ton of creatures in play. Kinda costly to play though.
- Hallowed Fountain, Godless Shrine, Watery Grave: Shock lands. Excellent at increasing consistency with mana bases. They're even better with the Fetch lands. All of these lands are very costly though.
- Flooded Plains, Marsh Flats, Polluted Delta: Example Fetch lands you could use.
- Ponder, Preordain: Cheap cantrips for a little more consistency.
- Maze of Ith, Kor Haven: Decent control lands.
- Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers: Generates a ton of mana if you get them together.
- Expedition Map: Can help getting the above lands or any land you need.
- Crypt Ghast: Synergizes very well with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, but is overall decent for your deck.



That's all I can think of for now. I can post more for you if I think of anything else.

DrkNinja on Myr Warmachine

So I second DrukenReaps said about changing your commander to Sydri, Galvanic Genius and Suns_Champion's Intruder Alarm it would offer a much more solid win con which is my main issue with your deck. From what I see, it's a control-ish deck with combat damage from low power creatures as the only win con, I think that leaves you vulnerable in the late game.

I also second more board wipes, targeted removal is great, but it only gets you so far when you are playing against a green deck that explodes with tokens in one turn.

And lastly because you are running so much control you NEED a Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery, maybe even both. This will allow you to hold up mana for control and respond to the end step before your turn to put major pieces out on the board before becoming a target. Speaking of needing I think EVERY blue deck should play Rhystic Study and Mirage Mirror in every edh deck because it's pure utility (plus you can abuse the stack with it).

I also think you should have more myrs and less reliance on getting arcane adaption.

Hi Chill_Casual,

Looks good! If this is an average display of your deck-building skills, I would love your feedback on one of mine. As for ideas, Seedborn Muse could be a nice addition to build up your stock of mana during other people's turns. It also works well together with Leyline of Anticipation and Vedalken Orrery, which your deck already contains. I would probably replace Zendikar Resurgent with it. Also, I would choose AEtherize over Evacuation as I wouldn't want my own creatures returned to hand if I could avoid it.

Have fun gaming!

Nelloh on Taigam, Ojutai - Dig/Reanimate/XtraTurns

1 month ago

Maybe Archaeomancer would be good if you like to recur spells? It's probably a bit janky/mana intensive but something like Panharmonicon plus the Arch with Ghostly Flicker and an extra turn spell would allow for infinite turns I think. Using Taigams ability, the spell gets exiled so it can't be recurred infinitely, which means you're technically limited to casting a single extra turn spell around 3-4 times if you use a combo of Taigam and a spell-recursion.

This might also benefit from Reliquary Tower particularly with Jin.

Sensei's Divining Top and maybe Leyline of Anticipation would do well in this deck as well. Looks pretty fun to play all up though, once it gets going it seems to be pretty strong, especially being able to recur something like Cyclonic Rift regularly.

ThyArtIsMagic on Death and Taxes - Budget

1 month ago

Leyline of Anticipation is a budgetish card if you don't want to spend $120+ for a playset of Aether Vial but are okay spending around $140 for the deck instead of $85. In some situations the leyline is better even.
