LiquidGaming Muzzio, Visionary Architect was actually an EDH general I was interested in playing for awhile (love the art on that card), but somehow forgot about. From your experience how similar does he play out to Arcum Dagsson ? I will definitely check out OathBreakerMTG.org pretty often to see what's new with OathBreaker and to see what's happening in the format.

Some other cards I thought might be worth considering for Jace's Paradigm Shift (some of these are quite expensive and probably aren't 100% needed, but these are all my thoughts):

1) Bazaar of Baghdad , "technically" it's card disadvantage, but just like Tolarian Winds the amount of card selection for little to no mana makes up for that.

2) Mission Briefing , personally I prefer this over Snapcaster Mage , it's recursion and has the ability to get you past 2 dead draws or give you the satisfaction of knowing you will get a good draw next (not sure what to cut though).

3) Treasure Cruise , did somebody say Ancestral Recall (count me in), not only is it great card advantage, but it's also a way to exile cards from you graveyard before you cast Paradigm Shift .

4) Dig Through Time , the card advantage is REAL!!!, not only is it great card advantage, but it's also a way to exile cards from you graveyard before you cast Paradigm Shift .

5) City of Traitors and Crystal Vein , they probably won't ever make it onto the list, but how have Lotus Petal and Grim Monolith been playing out for you? I would forget everything these cards say and read them as: "0... Only cast this spell if you haven't played a land this turn. You can't play a land this turn, add 2 to your mana pool." They seem like they might be worth considering once you read them from that point of view.

6) Magosi, the Waterveil , first I'm gonna say I have been in love with this card ever since I got into MTG so I might be giving it a little too much credit (but then again I was the player who loved The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale when I first started playing MTG, lol), I feel the majority of the time skipping a turn if you are playing control doesn't affect you too much, but being able to take an extra turn later on can be "pretty helpful."

7) Jeweled Amulet , it plays very similar to Lotus Petal , sometimes worse, but usually better IMO.

8) Rapid Hybridization and Pongify , sometimes things will slip through our counterspells and need to be dealt with (worth considering).

9) Reality Shift and Curse of the Swine , sometimes things will slip through our counterspells and need to be dealt with (worth considering).

10) Lonely Sandbar , early game we can deal with an ETB tapped land, late game an Island is a dead draw this isn't.

11) Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Flood Plain , and Bad River , still on the fence about these, ocassional ETB tapped lands vs deck thinning (E Wilds and T Expanse are better by a slight bit, just to say), not sure on this one. What do you think?

12) Mana Severance , we all come to those points in a game where lands are dead, but not anymore.

13) Mystical Tutor and Merchant Scroll , why not?

14) Foresight and Manipulate Fate , being able to kill three dead draws and for 2 mana on a card that replaces itself seems great in a "53 card format" (us blue players always changing the stats to whatever we want whenever we want).

These were the main cards I thought could make it onto your list, but I'm still evaluating a couple others so I'll leave more comments with those if I feel they are actually worth considering.

Stefouch on Art of Saheeli [Oathbreaker]

Jaytron: Karn will slow us a lot by disabling our manarocks, moxes and artifact lands. But we will still be proactive. With Karn as an oathbreaker, I will mulligan away my manarocks, or loot them to get more lands. Saheeli beatdown plan is still possible.

The table could turn Archenemy against the Karn player in fear of Lattice, which could put us under the radar and save us some time to expanse our board presence.

The only interaction I see against Karn is Role Reversal : take the Karn in exchange of one of our PW. That move will shut down their manarocks.

Or try to damage the Karn with some Thopter tokens, and finish it with Hour of Devastation .

Mystical Tutor might help finding silver bullets against Karn.

SynergyBuild on Tezzeret/Thoughtcast Affinity

5 days ago

Mind if I join you on the tier list? I've considered making one.

So far the best variant has been:


Saheeli Storm

Oathbreaker SynergyBuild

SCORE: 2 | 109 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS



The other best lists I have seen in the format are:

Narset, Parter of Veils / Timetwister (with some variants running Windfall instead)

Jace, Wielder of Mysteries / Paradigm Shift

Tezzeret the Seeker / Thoughtcast (Use Tezzeret to fetch Aetherflux Reservoir , but there are some variants that use Clockspinning with it and fetch Paradox Engine , or variants of The Chain Veil combo, idk.)


Past that, a tier 2 would be:

Aminatou, the Fateshifter / Demonic Tutor / Mystical Tutor / Vampiric Tutor (hard permission control)

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast / Divergent Transformations (Kiki+Conscripts in deck with no other creatures, so you flip the tokens into the combo.)

Last_Laugh on Narset and stuff

1 week ago

A few suggestions, and I'll try to break it down by category.

Ramp - A good rule of thumb here is cost or less (3 drop is ok if it adds more than 1 mana like Basalt Monolith, Worn Powerstone , and Coalition Relic ). Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , and Talisman of Progress are your best rocks you're missing. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are also great here. Fire/Marble/Sky Diamonds, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Gilded Lotus need to go. 6 out for 6 in not counting the land.

Topdeck Manipulation/Tutors - Brainstorm and Mystical Tutor .

Defense - Sphere of Safety and Smoke .

Evasion - Spirit Mantle and Aqueous Form .

Boardwipes - Razia's Purification , Divine Reckoning , and Cataclysm .

I'd also work on adding all 8 extra combat spells to the deck asap.

Cuts I'd suggest - Both Jaces, Rings of Brighthearth (does not work with Narset), Knowledge Exploitation, Mind Scult, Star of Extinction, Startled Awake, Stolen Goods, Weight of Memory, Fated Retribution, Mycosinth Latice, and the mana rocks I already suggested dropping.

Or just play Mystical Tutor and tutor for approach and have additional utility.

I feel like tutors would need to be at least banned from being the signature spell because really what would be stopping someone from just using Teferi, Time Raveler and any blue searcher like Merchant Scroll or Mystical Tutor .
