From the gatherer rulings on Thousand-Year Storm :

If an effect instructs you to cast multiple spells, they’re cast one at a time in any order.

And from Mizzix's Mastery :

If Mizzix’s Mastery exiled multiple cards, you may cast the copies in any order. The last copy you cast will be the first one to resolve.

Therefore; there is an order to the spells being cast and you will get one copy (plus the original) of the first spell you cast off of Mizzix's Mastery , two copies of the second, and so on. You can have the Thousand-Year Storm triggers, and therefore the copies (as batches since all copies of a single spell are all created by the same trigger), resolve in any order you wish. After that, the originals in reverse order to what you cast them (first in last out and all that) will resolve.

I have Thousand-Year Storm on the battlefield. I overload Mizzix's Mastery and exile 8 instants and sorceries from my graveyard. Mizzix mastery specifically uses the word cast so all copies go on the stack at the same time and they all count as cast. I can choose the order of the copies, but then thousand year storm sees them on the stack and each gets a copy trigger. are all the copy triggers then going on the stack each from a different copy cast from exile with the mastery, and then most importantly do each of those thousand year storm triggers see the same number of spells as being cast that turn? so that each of the copies cast with mizzix mastery triggers thousand year storm to copy it 9 times, or does it go sequentially? ie one of the copies is copied once, the next to resolve is copied twice etc. I'm pretty sure all the copy triggers see x=9, and then I can arrange those triggers in whatever order I like, correct?

Reverberate and Mizzix's Mastery sound pretty neat for this deck

(saw your post on tumblr and had to come and suggest stuff, but feel free to ignore, I'm just trying to throw some ideas out to help out!)

I think counterspells aren't very good as signature spells (but I don't have much experience with Oathbreaker). If you're going for flavor I think Expansion / Explosion , Izzet Charm or Turn//Burn could work. (It could also be fun to build a Harnessed Lightning energy-themed deck for Ral, Storm Conduit :x)

I think that instead of running a lot of creatures with tap (or untap) abilities it would be easier to focus on artifacts for the ramp/card draw/etc with cards like Clock of Omens , Key to the City , Staff of Nin (), Unwinding Clock , Chaos Wand , Oracle's Vault () and a bunch of mana rocks ( Mind Stone , Pyramid of the Pantheon (), Coalition Relic (), Talisman of Creativity , Star Compass , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith and Khalni Gem ). Animation Module can add counters to planeswalkers, so that could be fun too.

Invert / Invent and Firemind's Foresight are pretty good budget tutors. Fabricate and the Trophy Mage / Tribute Mage s could be good too.

Ensnare can be a lifesaver in certain situations. Blustersquall is something I thought I would already see in your list.

Temporal Distortion makes things take 1 extra turn to untap. Frozen AEther , Winter Orb and Mist of Stagnation are other relevant Stax pieces if you want to go that way.

Reality Shift is probably the best creature single target removal in blue.

I'd cut down on the number of X damage spells you're running and rely more on having some graveyard recursion/tutoring to make it more consistent. Mystic Retrieval would be my choice to run along with Archeomancer. Mizzix's Mastery is also pretty good, but probably better if you're focusing on spellslinging.

Vandalblast and Shenanigans (or maybe Release the Gremlins for the cuteness) are good artifact removal. Geistblast is a interesting Flashback spell that actually should be like Amonkhet's Aftermath. Insidious Will 's versatility shouldn't be underestimated.

(aaand I already suggested too much. Like I said, feel free to ignore. Can't wait to see the finished deck. I hope something from this mess helps!)

ShikiTen,

i can understand your confusion, i may have miswrote;

your ruling logic is correct, and you can use that strategy to lock out opponents and win with Laboratory Maniac

what i mean to say is that combining nekusar or Anvil of Bogardan with chains creates a soft lock where people draw for turn, anvil or nekusar triggers forcing a 2nd draw, the 2nd draw is replaced by chains and the card you draw for turn is then discarded at instant speed, and then a second card is drawn, which in the case of anvil is then discarded due to anvils secondary effect. this means that nobody can even use what they draw for turn unless its instant speed because of the instant speed discard during the draw phase. which synergizes with draw/discard pain spells to grind your opponents to death while they are helpless

yes, when combining this with Wheel of Fortune or Notion Thief it would also cause you to mill 7 rather than draw, or 7 x number of playets for notion thief.

this is not a bad thing, in dimir self mill is a common and effective strategy to create an effective "hand" of cards via graveyard and recursion. yes it is highly risky and difficult to pilot properly, but i actually want to fill my graveyard so that i can cast things like Yawgmoth's Will , Snapcaster Mage , or Mizzix's Mastery to win the game on the spot with half of rhe deck in graveyard. not to mention i run multiple Timetwister effects so even if i mill cards i need i can just shuffle them away

lastly, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth when milled shuffles my graveyard back into my deck, allowing for multiple casts of things like Lion's Eye Diamond or countermagic, meaning that i never mill out unless he gets exiled and opponents are more likely to lose from either mill or draw damage

its definitely clunky at first but the draw lock is strong enough its worth nuking the "draw 7 take 7" strategy that casual nekusar players use, which is actually not very good since you are giving your table 7 cards

Suns_Champion I almost forgot about Smothering Tithe ! That will find a spot in here, somewhere

I also think either Past in Flames or Mizzix's Mastery may find a spot, but I don't think I'll have enough spells in the graveyard to justify both. I'll playtest both to see which fits best!

Thanks for the recommendations!
