Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

Regoober on What's good for bad

Yeah! Like Ball Lightning or the like...that'll wipe EVERYBODY. I think my favorite is Infinite Reflection, though, because you can give it away with a creature spell on the stack to give your opponents a hurtful ETB or neuter their board after attacks are declared. Before reading your deck, I had never even considered putting it on an opponent's creatures...

Wait---Doesn't Infinite Reflection stop your commander from working (Since while it's under your control, it changes what Zedruu is)? You'd have to do it with Donate or Harmless Offering which sucks because it's at Sorcery-speed. Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery would put this trick back on-line, but may not be worth the slot.

Keep tinkering. There's a lot of good shenanagans in this deck and I've learned a lot trying to think these cards through.

Last_Laugh - Thanks for all of those suggestions. I believe your deck was actually one of the ones I initially looked at when considering how to build Muldrotha. It's a pretty great blueprint. What is your opinion on cards Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation in this deck? They are a nonbo with Muldrotha, but they speed up the rest of the deck.

SaifurCommander - Thanks for the comment. I have actually considered Grave Pact type cards and ultimately opted to leave them out. While I was initially building the deck, I found that card space is at a premium. I chose to leave those cards out mainly because while my deck does run a decent amount of sacrifice effects, it isn't really dedicated to that archetype. I opted to include either cards that advanced my main focus, or cards that synergized well with Muldrotha. Palace Siege seems like a good option so I will definitely consider that.

Yeah! But like you said making a whole army usually works. I want the cards Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation to give suto haste while, if not, keeping a counter spell or that wonderful Soratami Savant with enough mana up to ensure that my board is able to stay around.

Dack's Duplicate: It's really a choice between that and Sower of Temptation. I'd rather take Sower.

Scourge of the Throne: It's basically just a big dumb beater. I would be choosing between it and Insurrection, and Insurrection is more game winning.

Word of Seizing: It's good, but I prefer repeatable effects. Act of Aggression is close to meriting inclusion, but I did just kick Mark of Mutiny for the same reason of it not being repeatable. I DO like how it turns on Dethrone, however.

Vedalken Orrery: It's...interesting? I don't think that I'm required to play it...but I can see it putting in some amount of work in the deck (along with Leyline of Anticipation).

NeonEndymion: The only thing I use Alchemist's Refuge to flash in for is Doubling Season at opponent's EOT to ensure that I get to play a walker and ultimate the same turn. Leyline of Anticipation sounds like a good card to test out just for that less mana intensive surprise flash factor. From playtesting, Doubling Season usually doesn't survive an entire round. Looking forward to seeing your list.

Rhadamanthus on Miracles on your opp's turn

Yes, and you don't have to use something like Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery to make it happen. All you have to do is draw a card.

Under normal circumstances, the rules of the game just give you permission to cast a sorcery during a main phase on your turn when the stack is empty. However, the Miracle ability gives you special permission to cast the spell when you draw it as your first draw of the current turn, whenever that may be. This was part of why Sensei's Divining Top was such a key part of the Legacy Miracles deck before it got banned. It could arrange the top cards and let you draw a card during your opponent's turn.
