Mystic Retrieval Discussion

LoneCrusader399 on Budget Fists of Fury *ADVICE NEEDED*

Aqueous Form is really good with Shu Yun as permanent unblockability is very powerful.

Having Mystic Retrieval to rebuy a couple of cards can be key as well.

Myth Realized could be a backup win-con that can go unnoticed by your opponents.

Running out of steam is one of the biggest weaknesses in a deck like this and Surrakar Spellblade can help you refill your hand.

With your lower overall mana curve, you'd be safe playing a few less lands. You also have room for some more utility lands; Desolate Lighthouse and Opal Palace would be good options.

Oops All spells

This is Really REALLY unreliable but this is the best I think you will get:

Hand: Desperate Ritual, 2x Chancellor of the Tangle, Simian Spirit Guide, Burning-Tree Emissary, Infernal Plunge, Eldritch Evolution,

Turn 1 on the play:

Add 2x green to you pool from the chancellors. GG in pool

exile Simian Spirit Guide. RGG in pool.

Use RG for Desperate Ritual. RRRG in pool

Use RR for Burning-Tree Emissary. RRGG in pool Emissary in play

Use RGG for Eldritch Evolution sacrificing Burning-Tree Emissary.

Put Balustrade Spy into play. R in pool

Mill deck. 4x Narcomoeba into play R in Pool

Sacrifice 1x Narcomoeba to Infernal Plunge. 4x bridge from below trigger. 3x Narcomoeba 4x zombie token in play RRR in pool.

Flashback Mystic Retrieval using RRR. Target Endless Obedience.

3x narcoemeba 4x zombie token in play
Endless Obedience into hand.

Convoke any 6x creatures for Endless Obedience.

Target Angel of Glory's Rise.

Reanimate every human in the deck. (RRRRGGGG Floating Laboratory Maniac and Azami, Lady of Scrolls plus a ton of other random humans in play. )

Tap Azami, Lady of Scrolls to win the game.

Cards I used: Elvish Mystic and Mystic Retrieval

Elvish Mystic Retrieval


When Elvish Mystic Retrieval or another Elf enters the battlefield, return target Elf card from your graveyard to your hand.

All Elves your control have: ": Add to your mana pool."

Challenge: Create a card that contradicts itself, but is still playable.

Xica on Suggest ways to recur cryptic ...

The conventional wisdom seems to be
Snapcaster Mage, Torrential Gearhulk - and maybe Tasigur, the Golden Fang

I found some others:
Mystic Retrieval
maybe Jace, Telepath Unbound  Flip or Memory Plunder

If you know any other alternatives feel free to list them!

How about Mystic Retrieval over Archaeomancer?

I also like the choice of Big Game Hunter and Reality Shift.

Venomous08 on better than scapeshift and cheaper to

Cut all the Dimir House Guard, run 2 Mystic Retrieval instead. Definetly go up to 2 or 3 Life from the Loam. Also 4 Insolent Neonate is a staple in any dredge deck, same goes for 3 Conflagrate. Consider cutting most of the regular removal since you will be milling it most of the time anyways.

Ta massa o deck, mas da para melhorar umas 10 criaturas e principalmente mudar as seguintes cartas:

Runic Repetition por Mystic Retrieval

Into the Roil por Utter End

Sultai Charm por Abzan Charm

Mulch por Buried Alive

Pensaria bem em colocar Lurking Predators.

Acho que falta muito ramp tambm para que o Thrasios, Triton Hero valha a pena. Quem sabe um Elvish Pioneer

Manbeast75 on Mizzix Storm

I didn't actually have greaves when I was building it originally, and just never put it in. I definitely need to toss it in as well.

I've found that the scry is worth more than the extra counter, only because Mizzix doesn't need a large number of counters to go off. Plus, if you're at 4+ counters, condescend and fuel give the same counter number, while condescend gives you the scry.

Mastery as well is one I need to put back in. I took it out originally since I was less storm based, but in transforming back to storm, it never made it back in.

Mystic Retrieval is one I've been considering tossing in. Having Past in Flames exiled, or fizzle to unfortunate well placed counters can be tough, pulling it back would be a nice touch. Or even past in flames for some rituals to get started, retrieve past in flames, more spells, then past in flames again to give the new spells flashback could've solved some trickier puzzles for me.

Cavern of Souls as well on Wizards is one I'm putting in. Keep Mizzix, Teferi, Melek, etc safe from counters. Especially Teferi, locking down other counters.
