Mystic Retrieval Discussion

AwesomeOctopus on Mizzix non-infinite win cons?

That sounds pretty good! I actually have all those pieces in the deck already. maybe i run Quiet Speculation to fetch Increasing Vengeance + Devil's Play + Mystic Retrieval into the yard then mystic retrieval flashed back to return the devil's play or just play it from the yard and copy it twice with the Increasing Vengeance

Thanks for the suggestions Joumba and the like! Both Pyrohemia and Fiery Confluence were in my considerations, but I decided to cut them.Fiery Confluence I am still considering due to its flexibility, but I am now straying from enchantments and leaning towards instants and sorceries because they have more synergy with cards such as Past in Flames, Mystic Retrieval, and Kess, Dissident Mage. Because I'm investing in cards to fill my graveyard, running into opportunities to recast Reanimate or Stitch Together into Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or like become much more relevant. Whereas, the only way to recur my enchantments is Open the Vaults. That being said, I am considering taking out Open the Vaults and Marshal's Anthem for a few other cards.Two being Winter Orb because I rely heavily on artifact ramp so it shouldn't hurt me as bad as the rest of my opponents and Mesmeric Orb to help with milling myself.Also, considering Armageddon. A little spiky (and I know this deck is essentially built to do the same thing, but I feel because I'm taking a longer route to get there, it's not as bad :p)

Also, I really like Yamabushi's Storm. I may consider this in the build, however, atm in my meta I am the only one who owns a Crucible of Worlds. If they eventually get one, I probably will throw this in there. One thing to note though, if my combo is in action, and I have an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite out, my opponents wont be able to play lands because they will die as they etb.

Thanks again!!!

Xica on Oh No! My Deck is Ruin(ator)ed!

Hello, from your post i just realized that i am not the only person who is tinkering with a deck built around Skaab Ruinator
So here is what ideas i came up with till now:

1# Build an all in deck with the best cheap mill spells, Hedron Crab, Minister of Inquiries, Shriekhorn (a few - as its sadly an artifact), Dream Twist, Contingency Plan - ad 3 playsets of "real" creatures Narcomoeba, Skaab Ruinator, Eternal Scourge - and a flex slot, that at the moment i fill with Stitchwing Skaab, but it could be Magus of the Bazaar.
The problem is that this version has obvious problems with stuff like Path to Exile, (and grave hate) despite being really fast.

2# Build a deck that abuses Gifts Ungiven with Skaab Ruinator as win condition (since this creature doesn't need slots devoted to Unburial Rites.
In such a shell Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, Plaxmanta + Pit Keeper as a worse Snapcaster Mage would do well.
For turn one stuff like Siren Stormtamer/Martyr of Frost or stuff like Vampire Cutthroat would be ideal.

P.s.:Laboratory Maniac is a trap - for this deck.
There are alternatives that are a lot better - like Psychic Spiral + Mystic Retrieval which can work out of the graveyard, and mill the opponent out of nowhere.

Reverie42 on And Melek said, "Let there be Spells"

A couple suggestions that I've found very good in Melek:

  • Turnabout can generate absurd amounts of mana. If you sequence things correctly, you can frequently play it 5+ times in a storm turn.
  • Some amount of additional graveyard recursion for spells might be useful. Some options there could be Mystic Retrieval, Pull from the Deep, Mizzix's Mastery or Snapcaster Mage. I wouldn't run all of them, but 1-2 might be useful.
  • Mizzix of the Izmagnus is still pretty good in the 99. May or may not be as worth it when you're balancing between storm and value creatures, but it might be worth a shot at some point if you're looking to mix things up.

I've considered Act of Treason but I preferred Traitorous Blood; trample, you know :)

As for Mystic Retrieval/Pull from the Deep; by themselves I agree with you, they're better than Archaeomancer. However, combine him with Cloudstone Curio (or Erratic Portal), and you can have as many recursions of spells as you want.

Hi NV_1980,

I'm glad some of my suggestions helped! :)

I've got few more;

Ruw on Mizzix Spellslinger

Mizzix's Mastery and Epic Experiment, I would take out the cluestone and keyrune for signets. Also I would cut back on the creatures you will have enough blockers and possible wincon with Metallurgic Summonings and Talrand, Sky Summoner. Melek is 6 mana you could use to play spells which in my opinion slows down the deck to much. And if you switched Archaeomancer with Mystic Retrieval you could cast for one blue and flashback for one red for the same effect. Past in Flames is and auto include. and if you are looking for another wincon Sphinx-Bone Wand. Not bad for a first attempt. Hope this helps.
