Mnemonic Nexus Discussion
1 year ago
Is it possible to use Mnemonic Nexus instead of Timetwister? I'm assuming if you're doing loops you have infinite mana so this shouldn't be a problem right... Also we draw off Thrasios so we should be fine... I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, i would like to see other opinions. Also wondering if I should replace rec sage with the new Assassin's Trophy, although it improves the loops, rec sage helps counter null rod match-ups...

i always love to play Laboratory Maniac , Rebuild and Empress Galinain blue decks so i suggest adding that. If your meta is high in graveyard shenanigans Relic of Progenitus , Mnemonic Nexus, Day's Undoing orTime Spiral is a few i would run.

To people asking for budget options for Timetwister:
Outside of the very unlikely scenario that you'll be stuck with a mulligan down to below 4, and having to use TT to get a new hand, to have a sporting chance in the game, you'll only ever use TT after Bomberman Loops, i.e. infinite card draw. So the card draw portion of the card is academic.
Thus, I imagine that Mnemonic Nexus and Psychic Spiral are good cards to have instead. Mnemonic Nexus is the cheaper of the two, mana-wise, but is a symmetrical effect, and Psychic Spiral also mills your opponents for their entire library, or close to it.
I'm guessing you'd go for Psychic Spiral if you're in a meta that runs a lot of instant speed interruption (i.e. you don't want them to be able to use their interrupts against you several times over), and Mnemonic Nexus in a slightly less interactive meta.
Both of them also have the upside of being instant, so they are another way out, if someone manages to interrupt your mill combos. Sure, it's an effective reset of your progress, but it's still preferable to losing! :)

"I would only use it to untap. I'm a good person" -- That's what I'm afraid of. Mind Over Matter is a degenerate combo with Damia for this precise reason. Tapping down lands and creatures is rude but doesn't have nearly the capacity for oppression.
Speaking of Oppression, Oppression. You get hurt by it a lot less than your opponents.
Speaking of getting hurt, I'd recommend some heavy changes to your "protection" category:
-You don't have enough artifacts to make Darksteel Forge good. Ditch it.
-Similarly, Elixir of Immortality, Mnemonic Nexus and Quest for Ancient Secrets aren't worth a card. Use Learn from the Past and Repopulate instead; they replace themselves. Those with Laboratory Maniac and the Eldrazi titan should be enough. Throw in an Eternal Witness if you're still concerned. Heck, throw it in anyway; it's a good card.
Once you have a more refined list, hit me up -- I have some of these cards just lying around.
EDIT: Almost forgot, you're going to want The Gitrog Monster

Thanks for the comment, omen1121.
Yeah, I do have to be careful about accidentally milling someone out, and actually had Mnemonic Nexus and Day's Undoing in the deck for a minute in order to prevent that from happening, but in the end decided that I could use those card slots for cooler effects.

Your are totally missing Paradox Engine combopieces!
Using Kaho ability is still casting which means you untap her. Which means that with enought manarocks, you can play every spell exiled with her.
WHICH means You can attack Ghostly Flicker to flicker her and get new spell!
WHICH MEANS you actually exile Flickerspell and graveyard recursion spell such as Mnemonic Nexus and another spell You might need (probably counterspell).
WHICH NOW MEANS THAT with board state of Paradox Engine, Thousand-Year Elixir and Kaho with enought artifical ramp YOU GET TO CAST EVERYSINGLE INSTANT IN YOUR LIBRARY, ANY TIMES U WISH. AT INSTANT SPEED.
This goes like this:
Opponent does something,
In response You use Kaho ability to cast everyspell he exiled (to put them into graveyard) with flickering her as last to resolve (which actually means first to be cast), untapping her and mana rocks with Paradox Engine,
she reenters the battlefield and You choose to pick new instants,
obiviously You exile needed answer to Opponent move, Another GV shuffle spell and another flicker.
thanks to Elixir, You can instantly use her ability to answer opponent move, then use GV recursion to shuffle GV into library (that will be the last used answer, last time used flicker and GV recursion),
Kaho stays with Flicker spell left exiled with her, waiting to repeat this whole proces in response to anything.
THAT IS INFINITE POWER. YOU ARE GODLIKE WITH SUCH STATE.
At this moment You decide everything. Some1 wants to attack some1? You might say "DENIED!" and do Kaho stuff to cast AEtherize.
Some1 want to cast anything? You may say "There you go" and let it resolve.
OR YOU CAN SAY "NOT EVEN CLOSE BABY" and use Kaho to cast Counterspell.
Some1 starts to weine? SIMPLY USE Brain Freeze and finish him.
You can answer everything unless they go for Split Secound spell.
Cards I suggest:
The thing is that we needed 2 of each of those spells to be able to loop GV recursion and Flickers (that after using one, there is still one in Lib to exile and cast to get the other from GV to Lib again)
The rest of suggestions are ofc dependent on what You want to do, just find 2 of each kind so that they can still loop like others.
- Bouncespells as Cyclonic Rift and Capsize as you can target every pernament,
- Brain Freeze to stormOut and mill some1 to death.
Yeah, I actually wanted to make such deck, but would really like to see some1 else doing it, since I spent to much moniez to MTG anyway and my Playgroup is more casual.
