Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

Luarviq on Arcanis the Pit Champion

I would say more untappers and effect doublers. Fatestitcher or other untapper with Illusionist's Bracers will let you draw your entire library in a single turn, and if you have Vedalken Orrery , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Leyline of Anticipation you can do it before your upkeep to dig for Laboratory Maniac and flash him for the win. Or just put pingers that deal dmg on tap, and tap-untap them infinitely. So much potential.

Windfall could be some good discard, and Dreamstealer could do some work as well. Lord of the Void just seems like a fun card here, along wil Soul Manipulation . Not sure if you want to go this way but Leyline of Anticipation / Vedalken Orrery are always decent in decks. Painful Quandary and No Mercy are just fun political tools.

Also, have you every considered going grixis with Nicol Bolas ? He's pretty fun to play, I made my own deck with him: Schemes of the Omnipotent.

hey Daedalus19876 have you considered Leyline of Anticipation ? it grants everything but lands in your hand flash, meaning you can cast everything your drawing into instantly. useful for getting some of the other cards out if you draw into them with a forced discard effect and they're the only card you have in hand.

Yo Koios!

Great to see another Tuvasa player, I am definitely a fan of her! She is slowly creeping up to be one of the most entertaining decks to play!

Some cards I would recommend off the bat are Mystic Remora , Shielding Plax , Pemmin's Aura , and Vanishing . The biggest thing about Tuvasa is the need to protect her, after that it's all about the card advantage she gives. So cards like Sigarda's Aid is a real gem, if you can afford it I would also recommend considering Leyline of Anticipation as flashing in cards at all turn makes full use of Tuvasa's ability.

Lastly one great card to run for constant proc is Flickering Ward , in conjunction with any of our flash effects she does so much and can draw and protect as well.

If you want to gather some more ideas here is my curent decklist:

Thank you semsandberg for the comment and +1!

I don't know that I need Reliquary Tower for now; I haven't had the chance to play this deck much, but so far the draw engines have not kicked as I wished they did.

Aluren does sound good for this deck, but I am worried about giving my opponents that advantage, it could solidly backfire. Still, I agree that As Foretold is not the best card in here and could find a replacement, maybe some actual ramp which, in hindsight, is what this deck lacks. I do like Karametra, but I think this deck needs to ramp ealier, and by the time I can drop 5 mana it may be too late.

Intruder Alarm is very interesting in combination with Alchemist's Refuge, which would almost makes me want to add Leyline of Anticipation . I would have to double-check that I am not enabling any infinite combo with that card, which is what it is famous for, as it is forbidden in my playgroup and definitely not my style.

I am a bit crazy about themes, so although Triumph of the Hordes could be a wincon in here, it doesn't suit what I envision for this deck right now.

It may sound like I am refusing all your suggestions, but the input is much appreciated as it forces me to delve into the reasins why I have made certain choices.

Well... I like the general idea of what you're doing here, but... I feel like you are neglecting a BIG part of Animar's text box:

Creature spells you cast cost less to cast for each +1/+1 counter on Animar.

That's important because colorless creatures, and MORPH creatures are FREE! This is a big deal because you can add in something like Vedalken Orrery / Leyline of Anticipation / Vernal Equinox and use morph/colorless creatures as almost combat tricks to oneshot opponents.

Also I struggled to come up with something to help this Voltron style you are going for because every voltron deck I've ever seen has white in it lol.

I think a card that is a DEFINITIVE include here though is Aluren . It ain't cheap, but again you can use it to get some combat trick damage through. Also I highly agree with HK's Glimpse of Nature !

RiledUpWhiteKiddo - Thanks for the advice, I ended up adding Privileged Position , and Sterling Grove . All my play partners have started including enchantment removal so I needed them to protect my board. Plus Sterling Grove doubles as a late game sac to tutor win cons or answers. Great suggestions!

I am thinking about adding a Leyline of Anticipation since only playing on my turn limits the cool factor of the deck allows my opponents to play freely without fear of any antics. Thoughts?
