Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

unwucht, thanks for checking out my brew! I’ve never been too much of a fan of Expedition Map with splash. I’d probably run Sylvan Scrying instead, if I needed the land tutor. I’ve always relied on Crop Rotation or Scapeshift to grab an important land. As for Chulane, Teller of Tales, I’m very close to possibly cutting something to make room for him. He seems to be highly recommended by the mass majority. Him and the lot of Leyline of Anticipation, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Karametra, God of Harvests. Still a lot of thought and play testing to do before I make some adjustments though. Thanks for the suggestions and good luck with your brew! I’ll check it out.

Hey SteffisPeppis, I appreciate the suggestions. I did not consider cards such as Perilous Forays and Phylath, World Sculptor due to having only four basic lands in the deck. Prismatic Omen would fix the basic land problem, but to me, at least, it’s not worth making room for the bunch. Karametra, God of Harvests and Leyline of Anticipation, I have considered. They just didn’t make the cut in the meantime. Very possible they can be added down the road. All are still viable options if someone wants to build around including them. Thanks for the suggestions!

Zuran Orb is a fantastic way to fuel up a massive game breaking scape shift. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling is a free flicker at End step. Roon of the Hidden Realm can allow you to refresh Omnath triggers via other people's turns. Same with Chulane, Teller of Tales combine either of the above with either Leyline of Anticipation and Seedborn Muse and every turn is your turn to slam down lands and pay them off with Omnath smacking everyone. With an ultimate finisher of Thassa's Oracle and you have all the goodness of a Bant flicker/Landfall deck combined with faster pay offs from Omnath to close out the game even faster.
Anyway these are just my thoughts of looking over your deck and thank you for letting me ramble.

You should also consider running more mana rocks like Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, and Fellwar Stone. Then probably look to swap out your lands that come in tapped with either basics or other lands that don't come in tapped that fit into your budget.
Next I would advise you to think about what you want your deck to do. I feel like a lot of the cards in this list don't necessarily fit the overall strategy and lack synergy with other parts of your deck. For example, why are you running cards like Shark Typhoon, Council's Judgment, Omniscience, and Leyline of Anticipation? How do they fit into your commander's strategy? Also think about cards that you could improve on. I can tell you want to incorporate some sort of stax/pillowforty element into your deck with cards like Lawmage's Binding and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, but there are better cards we could swap these out for like Ghostly Prison to complement your Propaganda and Crawlspace to limit the amount of hitters coming at you. Looking at your current list it feels like you want to make this into a deck that wins and doesn't care about the fun of others (after all you're playing Sen Triplets), so look to improve your existing picks and ask yourself what your cards do to further your strategy.
Finally, take out Deafening Silence and Meddling Mage. The latter hurts what you're trying to do a lot. You'll only be able to use people's hands to a limited degree and it just slows the game down a lot in general without helping you win. The former just doesn't do enough when you could just cast their threatening spell yourself to get rid of it.
Good luck with this deck! I hope it comes out to your liking and I hope I was of some assistance. :^)

I had a lot of fun with Bant Party Bus lol, but this brings up some cool ideas! Hostage Taker seems interesting if you could squeeze the use out of him, and Blood for Bones seems great. I wonder if there's a Scholar of the Ages brew with Blood for Bones.. that combo is awesome lol.
The Battlement is awesome. I was using lots of Elvish Visionarys and Llanowar Visionarys (ramps a bit too!) and the main idea of the deck was Leyline of Anticipation. It's hilarious flashing in Battlement to scoop up blockers and then instant-speed Shatter the Sky to draw a card, sweep the board, and get my entire board back drawing 5 more cards lol. Elite Guardmage seems pretty good here, maybe I'll have to try that!
Yorion, Sky Nomad and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling are really great inclusions that both fit into your Esper colors as well. And Cloudshift can do some stuff! I found less use in Long Road Home but it exists and can also target the opponents creatures last resort if you need to eliminate a certain effect temporarily.. I've had that happen.

Gelectrode95 gave me quite some inspiration to update my deck, so I went straight towards joining the dark side and implemented Mindslaver, Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery and Chandra's Ignition.
After a short consideration I took out Puppet's Verdict, Risky Move, Tides of War and Impulsive Maneuvers. I realized I hardly ever cast those spells before so I wanted to go for an additional wincon and a really hateful combo with Mindslaver and Academy Ruins.

Thanks for the shout out dinkyfink! I like your take with Mirror-Mad Phantasm and the overflowing ooze flavor of the deck! I especially like the inclusion of Leyline of Anticipation there too. It's one of my favorite cards ever and adds deadly speed to your setup. Looks like a ton of fun to play!
