Nezahal, Primal Tide Discussion

caantpayrent on A Snap of 2 Fingers - [Competitive] + [Primer]

Soren841 There's only 7 cards that are 5cmc or higher that we'd potentially hard cast.

The average cmc cost is a little skewed; FOW, Misdirection, enter the inf, Omni and life / death are all listed at 5 or higher but we won't ever get hard casted.

Nezahal, Primal Tide at 7cmc is both high and potentially and not essential.. But other than that what woukd you drop?

Will def pick up a Nezahal, Primal Tide, Aphoticate, Sire Of Insanity might be a good pickup, you know. Niv Mizzet isn't... bad, but I am not a instant/sorcery deck despite that I run a number of them between the Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Reanimate, Exhume, Buried Alive, Entomb, etc. effects in the deck. I do have the enchantment-reanimators for World-G-Dragon, but don't have an outlet for infinite mana and so will pass. The rest are a little much IMO.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Archetype of Endurance are both possibly options... my issue is that they don't hurt the opponents. Still might be worth running, Unlife.

Aphoticate & Triton, I will get a Kederekt Leviathan, but it is more of a gimmicky-great card than a wincon.

Solid deck overall!

Some potential cuts:

A couple of cuts I’m not certain on:

Aphoticate on Best Reanimation Targets

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is imo the best target with Razaketh, the Foulblooded as a close second. The only reason I rank him second is you need at least one more creature in play to go ham.

Other great ones are Consecrated Sphinx, Nezahal, Primal Tide. Pestilence Demon is a personal favourite of mine too.

If you can reanimate at instant speed like I do in my The Scarab God deck, some nice options open up like Torrential Gearhulk, Steel Hellkite, It That Betrays and a personal piece of tech I have found useful: Keeper of Keys

Other honourable mentions are Rune-Scarred Demon, Kederekt Leviathan, Sire Of Insanity, Meteor Golem, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Worldgorger Dragon, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and Kokusho, the Evening Star,

The point is to keep them under control, by counters and removal, until I can either get Fleet Swallower or Fraying Sanity on the field. Once they are out I either counter their topdecks or control by another means by counters or removal. Once I have either Fleet Swallower, Fraying Sanity, or both I will continue to counter their spells or remove them if necessary until they either mill out or I reduce their health to zero using Fleet Swallower. However, I have added Nezahal, Primal Tide in as a sideboard option in case they have a control deck as well. With all of this being said if you think my win-con's are ineffective could you give me another to replace them with?

Divination is a good card and I will try to find a spot to put at least three of them in, however, for counters once Nezahal, Primal Tide is out. won't Cancel and Sinister Sabotage be enough? also, do you have any recommendations on what to replace Divination with?

I'm no standard wizard but if your goal is to get out Nezahal, Primal Tide as fast as you can then I'd include a handful of Divinations. They'll either draw you into the beast itself or into more counters. The other thing is that you've considered removal for your opponents creatures that slip through counters but not for their spells, in this case I'd sideboard a few Devious Cover-Ups in case they get remove Nezahal while your tapped out or something.

Hey! Do you know about sideboarding? If you want to make this deck competitive, you need a sideboard. A sideboard is 15 cards that you can substitute into your deck based on what your opponent is playing. I think stuff like Spell Pierce and more Negates would allow you to keep the paladin alive, because after game 1, people will know what you are trying to do and just kill the paladin. Also, dimmer decks will sub in Unmoored Ego and just exile all of your paladins.

You need some removal. Blue doesn't have much, but white has stuff like Ixalan's Binding and Conclave Tribunal.

If you want to surveil to find your pieces, i would max out on Enhanced Surveillance. only having 1x will mean lots of times you won't get to play it.

Finally, an alternate win-con is nice (but not necessary). Some big creature that can't be countered and has protection, like Nezahal, Primal Tide.
