Magus of the Will Discussion

Yesterday on Looking for creatures tha benefit ...

1 month ago

So I'm building a deck ATM which is likely to at least have a sub-theme of creatures with activated abilities. The Commander is Tasigur, the Golden Fang and I'm looking for some advice on creatures with good activated abilities which ideally both interact with the graveyard and get some value out of running Training Grounds and Heartstone.

If anybody can help with things that fit this description perfectly or even partially, I'd be very thankful. Creatures like Tasigur, Magus of the Will, Necropolis Fiend are ideal, and creatures like Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, Deathrite Shaman and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip are still appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I like it. Just some thoughts:Flusterstorm? If you're casting a bunch anyways, then it could help you Laboratory Maniac or deck an opponent. Or, pop Yawgmoth's Will and pull the self mill onto the field. Magus of the Will could let you have Yawgmoth's Will on a stick even.

This needs some Yawgmoth's Will for sure, or take out Magus of the Wheel and replace with Magus of the Will. Maybe Past in Flames as well? Definitely want one or the other I think

I forgot to mention, between low block potential and very high cmc, all 3 bolas cards are too slow and only really get one activation for soo much mana

But what ive noticed as i put money into the deck is it does best when played like storm, casting rocks and rituals and a pain spell and then chaining wheels for spike damage, the cumulative upkeep stuff is rather slow and really draws hate from opponents before you can kill them, and you are forcefeeding draw but you dont necessarily want them to use the cards you let them draw,

Price of Knowledge is ok, but in order to achieve the speed for storm, its really hard on the mama base, the only card above 6 cmc i run in mine is Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, and i never cast them they're only as a more useful Library of Leng

On top of being able to chain wheels after sticking a 1-4 cmc pain enchantment like Liliana's Caress Underworld Dreams or a discard/draw/combo engine 4-6 cmc like Dream Halls, Waste Not Rhystic Study, playing dimir colors means you have access to the best tutors for wheels and graveyard recursion, ive found that filling my graveyard by discarding wheels as a massive secondary hand and then either resetting the mill with the eldrazi titan while milling opponents out often removes the need for Library of Leng, but its a good card to learn the deck in the sense it teaches you what you want to keep or discard during wheels, plus if you have 50 cards in graveyard casting a Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery usually wins me the game with either 300-500 burst damage or decking opponents

Theres plenty of budget ways to recast wheels and other important spells from the graveyard you usually can fill up relatively fast

Magus of the Will

Past in Flames

Mizzix's Mastery

Archeomancer

Izzet Chronarch

Pull from the Deep

Call to Mind

Mystic Retrieval

Dralnu, Lich Lord

Non budget versions would be

Yawgmoth's Will

Snapcaster Mage

Kess, Dissident Mage

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (-2 flip is another snapcaster)

Tutors really help you with getting the enchantments, protection or wheels you need to gain the lead, ill start with budget

Trinket Mage

Treasure Mage

Merchant Scroll

Gamble

Beseech the Queen

Increasing Ambition

Dark Petition

Diabolic Tutor

Diabolic Revelation

Fabricate

Lim-Dul's Vault

Brainstorm

Ponder

Better but more expensive options

Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack to manipulate draws

Vampiric Tutor

Demonic Tutor

Entomb

Mystical Tutor

Personal Tutor

Tezzeret the Seeker

Helium on Breya, Etherium shaper

This is just a start FYI

Note: Add more lands as you should have at least 30+ and "Cycling" is not doing anything for this deck other than spending your manna and slowing you down, cards like Diabolic Tutor and Fabricate or Kuldotha Forgemaster will cost you close to the same and get you exactly what you want.
