Magus of the Future Discussion

You want to cut Gilded Lotus. It's the wrong tempo for this deck. Also if your going to be as into the Future Sight/Sensei's Divining Top plan as you are with both Magus of the Future and Future Sight you want to add Trinket Mage, Etherium Sculptor and maybe a Cloud Key or Fabricate. Now I would ask you what is the reason for Grixis? Without a Wheel of Fortune or a Yawgmoth's Will I really think going to Esper and getting access to a Enlightened Tutor and Silence would help your deck out a lot. Other cards you should add are Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Mystic Remora, Mental Misstep, Preordain, Merchant Scroll and maybe Demonic Consultation since its a quick easy way to win with Laboratory Maniac. You also have way to many lands. Decks like this run no more than 30.

Looks pretty good but i think you might want to add in a few ways to sweep the board for when things get out of hand. Nevinyrral's Disk, Cyclonic Rift Ixidron and Boompile are probably your best bets out of monoblue.

Here are also a few other random suggestions.

Mind Over Matter +azami allows you to dig through your deck pretty quickly. (with somethink like Psychosis Crawler out it usually wins you the game even if you don't want to run Laboratory Maniac)

Arcanis the Omnipotent, Sower of Temptation, Magus of the Future, Vedalken AEthermage, Venser, Shaper Savant and Glen Elendra Archmage are good utility wizards

Riptide Laboratory is a good way to save your creatures from removal spells in a pinch, or to get continuous enter the battlefield effects like Archaeomancer.

Hope this helps!

Sensei's Divining Top + one of Future Sight or Magus of the Future goes infinite with Helm of Awakening, letting you draw your deck and assemble enough storm count to Tendrils for lethal.

Hyperalgialysis on A question of cmc preference

For the purpose of your example, the altar is usally a better choice. To answer the broader question for me it is a matter of what the effect is and how I intend to use it. Magus of the Future and Future Sight are similar examples. The enchantment gets run for me a lot more simply because it is more difficult to remove. The creature on the other hand will see a lot more play in decks revolving around my graveyard Sidisi, Brood Tyrant and the like. At the end of the day, that is the question I ask about any card, how well does it synergize with the strategy I am using? More often than not it will be a card that is hard to remove. Color requirements don't really play a factor for me unless I need it to come down early. In a 3 or more color deck with the example you stated above, the feeder should be easily cast regardless of what point the game is at. With cards that require more than a single color tho, the colorless choice is better for anything that I need to cast early. After the 5th turn or so, if you can't generate all the colors your deck needs you are in bad shape regardless, so the point is kind of moot anyway.

LittleBlueHero on How many new legends do ...

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!
