New Perspectives Discussion

Hey DanowarElf, thanks for the comment! I'm glad you like my deck idea. You make a good point about the difficulty to find New Perspectives. I may add something like Ethereal Usher for an extra search to go alongside Long-Term Plans. Although, New Perspectives isn't necessary to win; I recently won a multiplayer with Alhammarret's Archive and The Locust God out, then Brainstorm, Gush, and some cycling to suddenly get 15 insects, finally attacking with Pursue Glory to win. Admittedly it helped that the other players mostly left me alone for the whole game, I think I may get a lot more aggro next time!

Cool, I'll check out your Locust God deck and comment!

Due to the nature of this deck (cycling), I would think about substituting a Drake Haven for either New Perspectives or Faith of the Devoted.

Thanks for the input. I've tried running full playsets of Shadowstorm Vizier but unfortunately they don't tend to perform very well due to their susceptibility to Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness (I think it's called.)

Drake haven is cool, I haven't used it yet since I only have one copy. It's definitely in the maybe pile.

I've also tried New Perspectives, but for better or worse my games are usually over before I drew into it (though I only have two of them.) I personally don't find it to be worth the cost when it does go off. But it's also something I'll continue to tinker with.

The apoc demon is actually one of my star performers. I usually don't play him until I've got 10 or so cards in the graveyard, and with a little planning I've always been able to swing with him, thanks to the sarcophagus letting me bring back creatures from the graveyard to sac on my following turn.

I've also run playsets of the Sphinx, but like shadowstorm it's susceptible to fatal push and grasp, and usually doesn't end up being worth the casting cost vs keeping it open for control and other shenanigans on the opponents turn.

I would recommend running a playset of Drake Haven over the sorcery you have. It gives you bodies on the field with evasion that can be used as surprise blockers. Shadowstorm Vizier is also a good choice, similar in effect to the UR uncommon from Oath, except it's discard as opposed to prowess. Finally, a couple copies of New Perspectives to ensure that you can close the game by turn 7 with a handful of drake tokens and the vizier. You can also try running Curator of Mysteries to help fish for your wincons.

Apocalypse Demon is never going to work in this because there aren't any creatures to sacrifice to make him a threat.

Calibus101 - I used to have this deck as BU, but I ended up adding white because I found I was having trouble with artifacts and enchantments. I feel like New Perspectives isn't actually that helpful because it's hard to keep 7 cards in hand, and sure it may let me cycle one or two things for free, but I don't think it's worth it. Hollow One is an amazing cycling card and should be at least a 3 of in every cycling deck because if your deck is efficient enough you can play him for free. There have been many games when I have cycled away 3 of them and then play Abandoned Sarcophagus, cycle a few things, and cast 3 of them from my graveyard for free it's amazing. Striped Riverwinder does cycle for cheap, but the card itself is pretty bad. A 5/5 for 7 is really bad to start and adding hexproof still really doesn't make it worth it.

Thank you for your comment though I appreciate the input!

Won both the games I played with the playgroup. Opponents on the Scarab God, Trostani, and Doran. The deck has a rather non-interactive early game and I was very close to death both times I went off so I am looking for suggestions in that dept. Basically won with New Perspectives both times to cycle through the better half of my deck killing once with etb damage with Purphoros, God of the Forge, New Perspectives and Niv-Cricket on board and the second time with Shared Animosity, Skullclamp, New Perspectives, Drake Haven and Niv-Cricket on board with 30 attacking bugs and 6 Drakes.

Modifications: Swapped out AEtherspouts with Propaganda to hopefully protect us in the Early game.

TLDR: In the right deck New Perspectives is so broken.

Quite simular to my bu cycle deck for standard.

As a suggestion, you could include New Perspectives it would be useful to get some free cycle for more value.

Im also not a big fan of Hollow One as I personally find it a mediocre card without much going for it to make it worth being 4 cards. I would consider looking at cheaper cycle options. Such as Striped Riverwinder wich can be cast with sarcophagus and with hexproof it can be a great harrasser.

I have a simular deck here:UB Ifnir Cycle

It hasnt been updated quite yet but ive made several changes to the deck which will be made in a few days.

Throw in some Cycling Dessert lands to go with your Shefet Monitor and also maybe a Ramunap Excavator to grab some of your cycled lands back. Abandoned Sarcophagus would fit nicely. Maybe go down a few New Perspectives as it'll tend to be a bit slow for the agro goal of your creatures. There might be some themes from here that you could add:
