Magewright's Stone Discussion

This looks really sweet! Zirilian is a general who I don’t think sees enough play. Crucible of Fire seems like it plays well with your dragons, and you might want to consider Magewright's Stone and Thousand-Year Elixir for extra activations. Dragon Tyrant is also sweet to cheat out, and sometimes just kills people. Can’t wait to see what you do with the deck!

The way you worded it, yes. However, Magewright's Stone would need to resolve and untap Merieke Ri Berit for the Sundial of the Infinite to even matter in this scenario. It is best to allow Magewright's Stone to resolve, therefore untapping Merieke Ri Berit . When her trigger goes on the stack, activate Sundial of the Infinite

I have a question about the stack and timing of those cards. According to Sundial of the Infinite , whennyou end your turn you also end anything on the stack. You said the activation order would be Magewright's Stone THEN Sundial of the Infinite . That would mean Magewright is still on the stack when Sundial resolves, since Sundial resolves first. Wouldnt that mean Sundial would resolve in ending the turn, banishing Magewright on the stack before it can resolve?

Love this deck—and what matters most is if you have fun with it!
I’m not sure if I saw some of these in your maybeboard but I would definitely think about running them.
Mana Flare as cheap mana doubler, plus added politics to help keep you alive if you aren’t the threat.
Kill Switch could be a dope board control with Mycosynth Lattice as long as you can untap your own stuff still, so in that regard I would put in Unwinding Clock to handle that. If in budget for you, Paradox Engine . More untap utility: Magewright's Stone , Sword of the Paruns , Thousand-Year Elixir .
How has this played in your meta?
+1 for jank and the uniqueness

McToters a few of the cards you mentioned I'd already looked at and considered in the past but there are a few in there that I'll definitely have to consider so thanks for suggesting.
Another card that I don't think I will include is Unwinding Clock . as you said I don't have many artifacts I think most of the time it will just be a dead card in my hand. And even when I can use it, I don't think untapping 1 or 2 things for 4 mana is really worth it when I can untap everything with Seedborn Muse , or Quest for Renewal . I've also decided not to use Magewright's Stone , or Magewright's Stone because they're a little too slow.
However Thousand-Year Elixir is a gem of a card and I can't believe I never thought to put it in this deck. The untapping ability is decent, but the added on pseudo- Concordant Crossroads effects make it very good. The only problem is it's gotten a bit more pricey as of recent so I'll have to weigh it's costs to it's contributions.
The combos you mentioned are a little problematic for my purposes. Because my combos are able to be entirely fetched up by Yisan I don't see myself using these too much to be worth putting in the deck. That being said Seeker of Skybreak is absolutely another auto-include. Not only is it a combo piece fetchable by Yisan but enables combos to happen much faster. That's not even mentioning the fact that it's only 30¢! Of all the cards you recommended this is the one that my deck needs the most.
Anyways thanks for the suggestions I'm always looking for ways to make my deck better and having other people recommend cards is probably the best way.

Hey again! I was thinking... your commander has an ability that needs some of the same tools as my Kamahl, Pit Fighter deckdo you think Paradox Engine helps you out at all? I know you’re not casting creatures off of Yisan but I figure it’s powerful enough to run here. You probably still cast a decent amount of stuff. Also, maybe Thousand-Year Elixir as another untap tool (plus some haste). You’re not really running a ton of artifacts but Unwinding Clock may help add more value to your artifact utility. Sword of the Paruns is technically a worse Umbral Mantle due to initial CMC but it’s another option for untapping. Same goes for Magewright's Stone .
Not sure how much combo stuff you’re looking for but...
Seeker of skybreak + Rings of Brighthearth + Creature that taps for 3 mana = infinite mana
Anyway, you probably knew about all of those already but just thought I’d throw out a few more suggestions. I really like Yisan and think it’s a sweet deck.

I find Life's Finale works well with Tariel - not only are board wipes appreciated, you can also put your opponent's three best creatures straight into his graveyard from his library, giving Tariel a chance to bring them back later. Likewise, Magewright's Stone and Thousand-Year Elixir gives Tariel more chances to reanimate creatures every turn. Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves let her get moving a turn earlier and provide some much-needed protection, too!
