Magus of the Future Discussion

Obviously Jhoira of the Ghitu works the best as she can allow you to cast cards from your hand anyway, plus you'd have access to Future Sight and Magus of the Future which are the same card but better.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots , Nikya of the Old Ways , or Neheb, the Eternal are other choices as they make casting lots of spells much more stream-lined.

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent is a good choice if there's a card you can't play off the top of your deck as she gives you the ability to easily remove it. Scion of the Ur-Dragon is a similar option as you're given a useable shuffle effect to change what's on top of your library if you run into an extra land.

Well, our communication has time-delayed, but does matter I hope. Yes, from Germany. You? I saw in your deck: Azor, the Lawbringer , does he really work in this deck? For me, the most games are really fast 1v1, so I think, than he is not really necessary. And in Multiplayer, quite a lot removal, that I think a removaled wall is better than a Azor, found in my graveyard this way. I also saw: Future Sight , I don't have it, but I like the idea a lot. I have Magus of the Future , I know he isn't that great than an enchantment, but I wanna try the effect. I also going to add: Azorius Signet , Selesnya Signet and Diplomatic Immunity , Serra's Blessing and maybe an Harrow in addition with some small landbase changes. What do you think about it? I always looking for a Bident of Thassa , but nobody has it. :/ Maybe I have to buy it.

Couple suggestions: Snapcaster Mage i know is pricey but is a solid auto include in this. Future Sight or Magus of the Future to have potential for infinite spells to access Archaeomancer , Torrential Gearhulk or Mnemonic Wall along with Bosium Strip for recursion for spells.

Card draw etb triggers you dont have in there: Baleful Strix Wall of Omens Phyrexian Rager

Also with Aminatou's top deck manipulation i would advise running Magus of the Future and Future Sight alongside some scry enablers or top deck manipulation if you cant swing for sensei's top and scroll rack. Druidic Satchel is a great value piece i like to run

Thanks for the ideas Megalomania!

I've heavily considered both Magus of the Future and Future Sight in the past. Super on-theme, as you pointed out. My only issue with them is that I feel they sort of ruin the surprise of some of the top deck shenanigans the deck gets up to. Where's the fun in using Aminatou to put a scary creature on top of your library and then manifesting it if your opponents get to see what the manifest card is before it's turned up? Do you really want to put a Terminus on top of your deck in preparation to wipe the board next turn, but let your opponents know that it's coming ahead of time by having the Magus or Future Sight in play? I'm just not sure. Maybe I should use them anyway.

In regards to Necropotence - I forgot all about that card! It's not super flavorful with Aminatou, but I think it's vague enough to get a pass and the card draw is, of course, insane.

Cards like Magus of the Future and Future Sight fits your theme.

If you’re looking for a black draw engine, might as well go for the most powerful one available in the game -Necropotence.
