Mystic Speculation Discussion

usaDiabetic: Thanks man! :D It's pretty sweet, haha.

Pinacollata: Honestly, the two tutor for many of the same cards: Dramatic Reversal if going for Dramatic Scepter, Transmute Artifact if going for a Paradox Engine loop, Cyclonic Rift if needing answers in the late-game, Mana Drain if looking for protection, Mission Briefing if you need recursion.

However, Muddle the Mixture can also grab Isochron Scepter directly, as well as mana rocks for various loops. Meanwhile, Spellseeker can also grab Pact of Negation for manaless protection, Winds of Change to create Locusts or mess up hand sculpting, or Mystic Speculation if I already have Paradox Engine on the battlefield.

I highly recommend Mystic Speculation, if you've got enough discounts going on your instants sorceries like Baral, Chief of Compliance and Goblin Electromancer the buyback is free and it's basically just a 1 mana deck fixing draw engine for your commander. Plus it helps you get a crazy amount of mileage from Thousand-Year Storm as long as you have the spare blue mana to keep popping it.

If I may offer a couple of suggestions…

Mystic Speculation would be a good include, since effects that reduce a spell's cost also apply to buyback costs. So if you had Goblin Electromancer in play, you could pay to scry 3 and put the spell back into your hand.

Eye of the Storm is something I expected to be in the deck given its name. If you're worried about your opponents making good use of it, just run Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir to shut that option down.

Speaking of storm cards, Haze of Rage is another good choice for the deck, if a bit costly. This storm spell also has buyback and boosts the power of all your creatures. Possibly another good addition.

Naru Meha, Master Wizard functions in a manner similar to dualcaster mage and is a wizard lord.

Niv-Mizzet, Parun is both color and cost intensive, but well worth consideration. Since you're drawing a fair number of cards you can use him to deal with threats and draw even more cards whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery.

Hopefully some of these suggestions prove useful to you!

Thought Vessel over vensers journal.

Cast Through Time

Mizzix's Mastery

Guttersnipe possibly.

Sphinx-Bone Wand is a great win-con.

Condescend, Discombobulate because have blue, will counter

Swarm Intelligence

Gitaxian Probe

Bloodwater Entity because putting stuff on top is clutch

Epic Experiment

Baral, Chief of Compliance

Aetherflux Reservoir

Riverwise Augur, Conch Horn getting stuff from hand to top is a must

Sol Ring auto include

Goblinslide, Prodigal Pyromancer

Rapid Hybridization, Pongify blue removal

Riddle of Lightning, Fated Conflagration scry removal

Bosium Strip weird tech, basically gives flashback to all spells in a turn

Telling Time instant speed, gets something in hand, and on top

Preordain because

Mystic Speculation

potential further topdeck manipuation if you wanted, in the form of Portent, Index, Trickery Charm.

The reminder text on Mystic Speculation is poorly written. Buyback returns the card to its owner's hand.

If I use Gonti, Lord of Luxury’s ability to steal a Mystic Speculation and I cast it with buyback, to whose hand does Mystic Speculation go to after it resolves?

@Funkydiscogod I have tried to make Mystic Speculation work and honestly over time I have really grown to despise that card hahaha. Theoretically it should be great but the actual putting a new spell/land in hand that Serum Visions does has a better impact for me more often than not.

Whats your opinion on Mystic Speculation instead of Serum Visions? This would let you combo with the buyback.
