Magus of the Future Discussion

LittleBlueHero on How many new legends do ...

2 weeks ago

dbpunk Magus of the Vineyard, Magus of the Library, Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Jar and Magus of the Future would like a word with you :)

That being said there was already Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Arena, Magus of the Scroll, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Abyss and Magus of the Mirror before they made Magus of the Will and Magus of the Wheel.

So the current magus breakdown is: White 3, Blue 3, Black 4, Red 4, Green 3. So You could be in luck with them evening out the total number of magus!

Hey I hope you're still working on this! You commented on my deck and it took me a bit to get back as well. I know I +1'd a long ass time ago lol

Since you are going all creatures: you need to find ones that fulfil roles of noncreature spells.

Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Coiling Oracle, maybe Ondu Giant. You have Solemn Simulacrum and Birds of Paradise which are fantastic. There's really expensive ramp too, like Bloom Tender and Lotus Cobra

Phyrexian Ingester, Duplicant, Flametongue Kavu, Inferno Titan... Reclamation Sage, Ainok Survivalist, Manglehorn, Woodfall Primus... Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk...

I could not agree more with hintseeker's first point about drawing cards and utilizing colorless creatures. That's the meat n potatoes of the deck

I like Shaman of the Great Hunt; but not everybody does! It can chug along and turns all your creatures into pseudo-vampires. What's not to like? Thrasios, Triton Hero has a similar draw ability. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is rad. Prime Speaker Zegana can be huge. Vizier of the Menagerie is a cool new card. Elvish Visionary and Wall of Blossoms just went back into my deck. I don't run Sages of the Anima since I'm running noncreature spells I want to draw, but it would be great in here once you've decided you've played enough lands. Filter them out for multiple creatures per draw. Oracle of Mul Daya is a thing too, and Magus of the Future

To put Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron into perspective; imagine the payoff of untapping all your lands after casting multiple creature spells and just keep going. Now bounce one of them with Shrieking Drake/Dream Stalker/Man-o'-War, cast again, keep going. With enough +1/+1 counters on animar: Temur Sabertooth can bounce them for infinite mana and infinite animar counters (Cloud of Faeries needs lands like Izzet Boilerworks/Gruul Turf/Simic Growth Chamber). Deadeye Navigator can also gain infinite mana via "Flicker" effect. Lastly, Tidespout Tyrant bouncing any two colorless and/or land-untapping creatures you control goes infinite. Whether it's eldrazi or morph doesn't matter. Ancestral Statue alone bounces itself into an infinite animar

Obviously I've given way too many suggestions. Choose what works for you and your budget. Also every playgroup/meta is different.

You have some bangers in here like Maelstrom Wanderer, Craterhoof Behemoth, Phyrexian Metamorph, etc. Anger and Ogre Battledriver are great for an aggro deck like this

Cards I would take out: Ancient Silverback, Enclave Elite, Frontier Guide, Hanweir Lancer, AEther Membrane, Primal Clay, Young Wolf, etc. Instead of running something like Grazing Gladehart; invest in a Purphoros, God of the Forge mwahahaha

Above all, have fun! Cheers!

AverageDragon, I must admit that with a list of 365 possible commander, I didn't took enough time to look at all of them XD

Magus of the Future was a close one with the few I mentioned.

Still, I look forward this format!

mahdik I've played with all 3 of those, and they aren't especially overwhelming. The most competitive decks we've encountered so far are Magus of the Future storm, Havengul Lich grave combo, and Shaman of the Great Hunt midrange mana.

I notice you are running Magus of the Future but no Future Sight.

fragarach97 you are my hero....I love Pygmy Hippo!!! You need (I think) to make him hit Seedborn Muse + Opposition. The one and only problem is that in we can't tutor enchantment or transmute for CMC. But trust me when you see Opposition in game it makes a significant difference. For the rest you have a good build, maybe Fauna Shaman to tutor more easily Magus of the Future so you can replace Future Sight. For some counterwar Mystic Snake is excellent with Momir Vig, Simic Visionary to tutor Draining Whelk and/or Venser, Shaper Savant, you can simply cast it, see if you can draw a creature and rebounce him back to your hand. If you go infinite mana with Deadeye Navigator Brutalizer Exarch to remove all but creature and/or tutor any creature is a good out-win! Last suggestion.....Cloudstone Curio to make all more repetable can fit well.

@vao1221 sure. For the combo we absolutely need Sensei's Divining Top. For the sake of this example we will use the top with Cloud Key and Future Sight. Let's say you have both Future Sight and Sensei's Divining Top on the battlefield already. Then you cast Cloud Key calling artifacts which makes all artifacts cost 1 less. Now if you tap the top, you draw a card and put the top on top of your library. Since artifacts cost 1 less and you can play cards off of the top of our library, you can cast the top for free and tap it to draw a card as many times as you want. Each time you play it off the top, this counts as casting a spell. This is an advantage because Brain Freeze has storm, which means you copy the spell for each spell cast before it this turn. Ultimately, you would cast the top like 50 times and then mill our opponent for twice that. Future Sight can be swapped with Magus of the Future and Etherium Sculptor also works in place of the key. Let me know if you have any questions and upvote it if you like it please ;)

Saw your reddit post!

I'd add Magus of the Future, Leyline of Anticipation, Seedborn Muse, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, and Capsize, all cards that synergize fantastically with your commander.
