Library of Leng Discussion

BolasFucks on Ad Nauseam Doomsday Zur

Awesome deck Skuloth. I tried to build a somewhat budget build without the OG duals and a few of the pricier fast mana but as you stated in this thread it just cannot work.

My question is if you ever considered Library of Leng in the build. Only 1 mana and solves the Necropotence problem. I read in your goldfish write-up that you sometimes even use Zur's trigger to Oblivion Ring it away so you don't have to exile the majority of your hand after discarding. Why not just keep them?

Couple recommendations:

Phyresis, Curiosity, Helm of the Ghastlord, and Sigil of Sleep are all nifty enchantments to put on Nekusar.

Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, Whispering Madness, Windfall, and Winds of Change are all great cards with Nekusar, not only slamming them for large amounts of damage (some even with discard damage from Liliana's Caress), but disrupting their plans (particularly if they've tutored things), and letting you discard and draw when you're in a bind.

Jace's Archivist is superb--a wheel every turn for one mana? Yes please.

Teferi's Puzzle Box is a bit more than the $5.00 limit you placed ($5.52), but serves as another wheel every single turn, and adds some fun and chaos to the battlefield.

Library of Leng works well with your wheel cards, allowing you to safely wheel with the above cards, even when you have things in hand you'd rather not get rid of.

Chasm Skulker pairs well with mass draw.

Fate Unraveler, Kederekt Parasite give you some more damage per on their draws.

Megrim gives you another Liliana's Caress in your deck, which is quite useful.

I have Library of Leng in sideboard if needed, but normally I control the board first and then start to draw cards, so is hard to have 8 or more cards in hand and no Anvil of Bogardan/Reliquary Tower already in game.

Elixir of Immortality helps me if I deck out or if the cards that change the maximum hand size are onto the graveyard for some reason. Plus, it gives me some life if needed.

You realize that the only thing Thought Vessel does that Library doesn't is tap for . Library of Leng also gives you a limitless handsize.

maxon- I like kefnet, I feel like he's easier to be able to block with.

Also about Library of Leng, i like it in my Kami deck a lot. I can Hive Mind + Windfall to disrupt everybody else's hands, and safely put mine back on my library. And even aside from that, it's a 1 drop unlimited hand size.

Sorry all for the late reply. I hadn't noticed all the comments.

I actually came to this deck to make notify of some changes, for those curious.

Out: Trinket Mage, Coralhelm Commander, Deadeye Navigator, Dissolve, Aeon Chronicler, Aether Gale, Trailblazer's Boots, Soramaro, First to Dream, Mnemonic Wall

In: Forbid, Recall, Dissipation Field, Time Stop, Amnesia, Long-Term Plans, Mirror-Mad Phantasm, Ivory Tower, Kefnet the Mindful

To Leumas, yeah, Coralhelm Commander didn't do a whole lot in this deck, and has been cut. I never found myself wanting to bother with leveling it up. My initial thought was it would make for a nice flier with spare mana. Not worth it though. Chasm Skulker was in this deck before Kami was the commander, and it was fun, but with the return to hand effects I have in this deck, I either lose the counters on it, or if it's been destroyed, I lose the tokens. It's good, but not so much for this build. Ebony Owl Netsuke I do like as well, but I am specifically trying to stay away from effects like that. It's just personal preference. Quest for Ula's Temple is great too, but I don't want anyone knowing anything have in my hand, and it also suffers from my own return to hand spells like Devastation Tide. I could see Sphinx's Tutelage being in here at some point though. I will keep it in the maybeboard. Thanks!

To Love-in-Theory, you'll see I just added Kefnet the Mindful. It seems really broken for this deck, and I'm excited to see it hit the field. I like Levitation, but my deck usually doesn't swing unless I can get a little hit in, or when there is one opponent left, in which case this deck can easily defeat that last opponent after I've crafted my hand the whole game. Soramaro, First to Dream wasn't bad, but it wasn't doing a whole lot for me either. It's been cut for now. Patron of the Moon has come up minimally since I've added it, but I haven't been upset to see it, and it feels nice to be able to jettison land from my hand. Magus of the Jar I haven't really had come up too much so I can't really say one way or the other how well it's going to really work. That draw sphinx I don't really need. I could see getting it some day, but for now I'm gonna hold off.

To Trtl, I could never get rid of Thought Vessel. It's too good in this deck. The vessel is great for this deck not just because of bit of ramp but because of the no max hand size attribute. I've been suggested Library of Leng before, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. My playgroup doesn't do much in the way of wheel effects, though one of my friends was talking about making a deck with that new Locust god, and how good it would be with a bunch of wheels, so perhaps that will be a much needed inclusion in the future. I will add it to the Maybeboard. Forbid I DID just add, so that suggestion was spot on!

scrobacca on You want dat card? How 'bout DIScard?

You could always throw a Library of Leng in there just so when you have to discard, you could choose to put them on top of your library instead of your graveyard.
