Lore Broker Discussion

Nethereon on Caress Liliana's Rack

2 months ago

I hate to break it to you guys, but any leyline's triggered ability, in the starting hand, does not utilize the stack, cannot be responded to, and is prior to the game starting. Thoughtseize will NOT do anything to a turn 0 leyline. This is part of the reason why I run cards like Wipe Away in my sideboard. If you have access to lands that are actual duals, i.e. Sunken Hollow or Watery Grave, so they don't mess with your spells looking at number of swamps, then you can run these cards without any problems.

I tend to run my discard deck so that I have access to cards like Wistful Thinking and Lore Broker, which I think are much better than some other options. The broker isn't a targeted ability and will get around a leyline and it is especially useful when they are empty handed while your Caress is sitting there doing nothing. The broker could also utilize any madness cards out there. I'm also a fan of creatures like the good old Hypnotic Specter, but call me old fashion. You may want to look into Quest for the Nihil Stone if you're worried about Leylines. Quest doesn't target like Rack does.

Quietus Spike and Inkfathom Infiltrator are on their way in as we speak. (Replacing Coat of Arms and Lore Broker). The deck plays well 1v1, a little weaker in multiplater but given the right tools, it can defintely find its way. Probably the most fun deck I've played. Bitterblossom and Bribery proxies on their way ;)

Liliana's Caress is absolutely broken with Lore Broker for inf combo with untaps. Also playing a decent role in the discard factor of this deck for only the 2cmc it costs. Being an enchantment also hard to remove. which if it does get removed, gives a chance for your higher Cmc combos to kickoff with less removal for them.

Furthermore, Words of Waste has a great synergy with your draw advantage/ inf mana of your deck. bringing the reckoning to peoples hands.


will update this post more if i can think of anything

wheel effects like Jace's Archivist, Lore Broker, Windfall, Wheel and Deal, Whispering Madness, and i thing Day's Undoing works. and even cards like Edric, Spymaster of Trest help, but leovold is a huge target so Swiftfoot Boots, Asceticism, Lightning Greaves etc will be important.

and fun effects like Breathstealer's Crypt, Urza's Guilt and various discard spells will help you keep their hands empty (like Necrogen Mists) and maybe discard effect spells like Recall or Sickening Dreams ... oh and hand size increases like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Praetor's Counsel, Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, Venser's Journal.

the <> eldrazi may be difficult to reliably cast, and may not be worth it, especially with such a low cost/complex mana general, your going to want UGB on turn three the majority of games (or sooner)
