Magmatic Insight Discussion

Honestly you're gonna run out of cards. Your only "draw" spells are Restock, Wildest Dreams, and kind of Charmbreaker Devils.

Consider adding in a Harmonize, Magmatic Insight, Tormenting Voice, Cathartic Reunion, Life's Legacy, Momentous Fall, Rishkar's Expertise, and Wild Guess. Remember that if you copy something that requires discard as an additional cost, you don't need to pay the cost again.

Some thoughts -

  1. Your deck doesn't do anything turn 1, I'd suggest either you add Infiltration Lens or Monastery Swiftspear, both could be useful.

  2. Assault Strobe isn't that useful, unless you have also cast Distortion Strike, either Psychotic Fury or Temur Battle Rage are a better choice, I'd lean more towards Psychotic Fury as you draw a card but both are better than Assault Strobe because they work at instant speed.

  3. I'd be tempted to use Magmatic Insight or Mask of Memory in preference to Curiosity, the first because you don't need much land and the second because it sticks around if the creature is removed, but it is your deck so I leave it to you.

Golgari Brownscale will shit all over decks that try to race your life total.

For your draw step, dredge back Golgari Brownscale -> main phase, cast Faithless Looting -> dredge back Golgari Brownscale -> discard Golgari Brownscale -> flashback Faithless Looting -> dredge back Golgari Brownscale -> discard Golgari Brownscale

You just gained 6 life, dredge up 6 cards, and you still have the ability to gain life in turns down the road. God forbid if you have 2+ Golgari Brownscales and proceed to gain 4 to 10 life each turn from Magmatic Insights, Goblin Lore, Cathartic Reunion, or Tormenting Voice.

Not to mention, you can just cast the stupid thing.

Guerrilla Tactics is good against a field of Liliana of the Veil. However, it's really narrow in that regard so playing Obstinate Baloth is going to be better.

Ray of Revelation is also a nice piece of tech because of the value of casting it after you've pitched it to something, similar to plays done with Ancient Grudge.

Really the strongest play against Boggles is Smallpox. But since you're on a budget, adding another color isn't feasible. Pyroclasm is going to be the next best thing, but you also have to worry about their creature getting out of range before you can immediately nuke their guy.

I think in your situation, it's Pyroclasm on turn 2 or be forced to race. That's about all you can do once they have a creature with 3+ toughness.

Lastly, do you have any Conflagrates available? The card is pretty stupid. I found it to be the strongest thing for when you don't have Seismic Assault out. Mostly, it enables all of your graveyard stuff.

I think Magmatic Insight could be a possibility. As for Lightning Storm, I think burn is pretty much covered through and through. I definitely would like to stay at 42 land as it is mathematically consistent in my current mainboard untill sideboard answers are put in. Card draw engines are nice, but even better if they don't expend my land in the process. The scry 2 ability of Serum Visions and scry 1 on my playset of Temple of Epiphany work wonders for filtering cards.

Well, I think that Magmatic Insight is alright AFTER you get to 4 lands, since that's the top of your curve....and definitely keep at least 1 of both Devil's Play and Barrage of Expendables. Maybe Tormenting Voice as a 50/50 split with insight? That way you can discard the play to the voice, and flashback for the last points of burn?

What do you think about Magmatic Insight? since, as you said, we don't have a high mana curve so discarding lands is not really that bad. the question its just what to take out. maybe a few copies of Devil's Play and or Barrage of Expendables?

Just a thought, how about Magmatic Insight rather than Serum Visions and Lightning Storm could fit.

Hmmm, Magmatic Insight is interesting, but is kinda like a more specific Tormenting Voice that doesn't allow me to dump artifacts in the graveyard if I don't have a Pia's Revolution or Atog out but I do have a Slag Fiend ready. I'm not convinced, but thanks!
