Magus of the Future Discussion

Second note, I know they arent always easy to acquire but lands that dont come in tapped are the best lands. Have you considered anything like Monastery Mentor , Kykar, Wind's Fury , or The Locust God ? Kykar can fuel ramp.

Oh and I really enjoy Mizzium Tank .

Idk if you've considered playing with back ups but if you focus the deck into top deck manipulation for your win con there may be need for back up cards. Future Sight , Magus of the Future , etc

Bloodwater Entity is extremely useful here. Its on legs so you can flicker it or copy it. Other topdeck manipulation creatures Omenspeaker Sage Owl Spire Owl Sage of Epityr Augury Owl

Cathartic Adept and similar mill effects can help you move past undesirable topdeck cards. Gives control when you can see enemy topdecks Pyxis of Pandemonium Ghoulcaller's Bell Drowner Initiate Hedron Crab Jace's Erasure Drowned Secrets Codex Shredder

If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

I would suggest Curse of the Swine as better removal than pongify.

And either Future Sight or Magus of the Future if you don't mind telegraphing your moved but having access to your whole library.

Very cool! I see that you have gone in a totally different direction.

Why Magus of the Future instead of Future Sight ? Future sight nets you a spirit with Kykar and is much harder to remove as an Enchantment. It's also super cheap - at lest in Europe. Is this just to hit it (and Trinket Mage) with Divergent Transformations ?

Also Paradox Engine ate a recently. Not a problem if you play house rules, but worth noting if you plan to head to your LGS and play. I personally disagree with the ban logic, and was disappointed to have to remove the Engine from my Kykar deck.

Divergent Transformations makes this deck better. but you need to knock all the other creatures out of the deck except Trinket Mage and Magus of the Future . that way you can grab the top and win.

Suggestions for pushing the deck? Purphoros, God of the Forge would be #1 on my list. Cast enough spells and just kill everyone.

Mishra's Bauble is another 0-drop you could run. It doesn't do a whole lot, but storm decks generally need all the eggs they can get their hands on.

A relatively simple combo for kykar is Sensei's Divining Top and Future Sight . Or top and Magus of the Future . Or Mystic Forge and top. This will let you draw your whole deck with kykar out, then win with either lab man or the newest Jace from WoS.

1 drop red can-trips are what really push Kykar into storm, and with Purphoros or Impact Tremors out it's a great way to churn through your deck and kill people. Warlord's Fury , Crash Through , Magmatic Insight , Renegade Tactics , Needle Drop , Dragon Mantle . These all essentially lower the card count of the deck by being free with Kykar out.

Another pet card of mine I really like is Mirror Entity . On top of being a boost for all of Kykar's evasive tokens(and also itself being a spirit), I really like that it can turn all other tokens on your field(from Young Pyromancer , Monastery Mentor , Murmuring Mystic , etc.) into spirits too for just one mana.

Hope I helped. Happy spell-slinging!

Lythia I actually do have Future Sight in here already for redundancy with Magus of the Future . Magus is still really important here as well considering he's a target to go infinite when we exile spirit tokens as fodder to Divergent Transformations .
