Master the Way Discussion

Ok, I still have a few comments/questions about what you guyz have said:


I know Imperial Recruiter is a good creature tutor, but the only relevant combo piece it could get is a Phantasmal Image, since the other ones have a greater power... It would have been a no brainer if I had more creatures in the list, but for now it will not make the cut. Maybe it will get tested later on, but not now.


This deck is not a 1vs1 deck, it is a multiplayer one, designed to play in 4 players pod, so I don't see Lightning Storm and Master the Way as viable cards in here. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth has been suggested couple times now, so I will look towards the inclusion. At first, I did not thaught about him because I wanted to have a low average CMC (at 2.16 for now) with a lot of cheap interaction spells. The more it has been suggested, the more I started thinking, and the more I wanted to include it in. The thing is, I need to have ways to play with it without my commander, because I will not cast Kozilek a lot, it would be there to recycle back my entire graveyard, and like it has been mentionned before, it would let me get infinite tokens once I have infinite mana through infinite cycling with the commander, winning with damage. I simply don't know what to remove for it yet.

@Ohthenoises @sonnet666

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth will definitely come in as soon as I know what to remove. Cutting the Ashnod + Clamp combo seems the way to free 2 slots, since those are dead cards outside of combo... For now I will remove those two to include Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Transmute Artifact. But I would simply like to know how Blood Moon affects my High Tide plan? I run quite a lot of basics, so it would not affect me a lot... And I think it would be pretty good against 3+ colors decks?

Also, I am thinking about Cephalid Coliseum as a land, would let me pitch some cards that clogs my hands like a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth stuck in there in early turns.... Any more ideas?

thegigibeast if this is for 1v1, I've seen lists that use Lightning Storm and Master the Way as possible wincons outside of the LabMan win.

Maybe Kozilek would work in that sense? TBH I forgot Locust God loots so this actually makes any shuffling Titan worthwhile.

If you have a lot of cards in hand, you can use things like Master the Way Spiraling Embers Fateful Showdown along with copying spells too. Melek, Izzet Paragon could help you also along with Goblin Electromancer especially if you Rite of Replication it. If you use Arjun, the Shifting Flame he can help you cycle through card, add Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or Psychosis Crawler along with Ophidian Eye or Curiosity and you have a good combo. Mirari can help you copy your instants and sorceries too.

I think out of Spiraling Embers, Master the Way and Fateful Showdown the last is by far the best. It's 4 mana, it's instant speed and it synergizes very well with the draw theme.

I added Master the Way because it kinda fit the flavor and I would've liked to kill someone with it. I think compared to Spiraling Embers the cantrip is worth the one mana, since Arjun really likes to keep a full grip, but honestly there are stronger options all together. Thinking about it, I will probably replace it for something else. Off the top of my head I'd say Curse of the Swine seems like an improvement.

Also instead of Master the Way you could add Spiraling Embers due to the cheaper CM cost, unless you really want that card draw.

Kilrane Thanks for the suggestions!

Jushi Apprentice is currently in the deck, and I'm probably going to rework this deck here in the near future. Right now I just don't have the money or drive to do it.

I'm definitely going to re-add Etherium-Horn Sorcerer and Possibility Storm.

I'm still unsure about Recurring Insight due to both its mana cost and how effective it would be during the turn I play it. Just from my playgroup, by the time 6 mana becomes available there aren't usually many cards in hand. Chasm Skulker is one I've seen but never considered using in this deck. Seems like something that my playgroup would intentionally kill off early, and since I'm not running counterspells, I wouldn't have a way of saving it for the long run.

I must have misread Master the Way because I thought it only damaged creatures, which is why I never included it before.

Unfortunately, Ancestral Vision is way outside of my price range. Even if I had that kind of money, I'm not sure I would want to buy one for that much.
