Nezahal, Primal Tide Discussion

  • Nezahal, Primal Tide is an awesome pick here
  • Swiftfoot Boots probably isn't worth its spot
  • Grab Dream Fracture as one of your counter spells
  • It might be worth it to shell out some $$$ for a big burn like Exsanguinate or hell something red. Just having a 100% reliable way to finish someone might be worth it.
  • Devastation Tide, a man of taste
  • Maybe pickup a card that gets big based on (your/cumulative) graveyard size
  • I would grab a few more lands, having more reliable first three turns is worth having too much land later, you'll be drawing enough to compensate for that.
  • Teferi's Puzzle Box okay m8
  • Some (<$2) cheap dual lands include scry lands, fetch lands, and bounce lands. Better than the no-effect ones.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor

Realy wish to run in the deck, but protection is in extreme shortage

Nezahal, Primal Tide

Too heavy to play as often as I would like

Seasons Past

Due to heavy grave hate in my meta combined with the delve cards in the deck, is currently suboptimal

Stunt Double

Same as poor thada =,<

You're off to a good start.

Replace Cancel with another three mana counterspell like Dissipate or Void Shatter. You can also play something like Supreme Will which is a conditional counterspell but also functions as a makeshift Impulse. This means if you reveal it with Yennett, you can cast it for free still. Mystic Confluence is good for the same reason (which you are already running).

Your bomb package is good although I think Nezahal, Primal Tide is worth considering along with Chancellor of the Annex.

I'd also recommend more ways to protect Yennett (and your other bombs). Cards like Mother of Runes and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner do this well.

Path to Exile and Vindicate are essential removal spells you aren't running. I'm also fond of Council's Judgment and Aura of Silence.

I'd highly recommend Careful Study and Frantic Search as terrific Graveyard enablers. Also (if your budget allows), classic reanimator targets like Nezahal, Primal Tide, Tidespout Tyrant, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Iona, Shield of Emeria and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur

Murphy77 Hey thanks for the +1 and the comments! I really want this to be viable, but does need some early game momentum.

I really want to use Golden Guardian  Flip in a deck. He's a rad dude and sped up a little with the ramp. A plus is the 2 mana back once flipped then the little biggins if you end up with only mana for a bit works out well for me. Also with wayward on the possible three drop, I can sac golden after a block and have him ready. He keeps surprising me, so I haven't taken him out yet, but I've thought about it. Again, I just really want to utilize him in a deck D: the minute the art hit my eyeholes I fell in love lol

I'd love to put Fraying Sanity in, but staying away from those blocks to stay safe when rotation hits. Thought of taking out the mendings or guardians for two Nezahal, Primal Tide but not sure.

I would personally lean towards Nezahal, Primal Tide cuz you do get some value from it, usually I'll get 2 or 3 cards out of him. But with Kefnet the Mindful usual gets removed pretty easily by either countered by Jace's Defeat or Vraska's Contempt. Your right though I should keep 1 in the sideboard.

Brownkid09 on Mill Them Down to the Ground (M 19)

I know this is a post-rotation build but I do love the cards Perpetual Timepiece and Fraying Sanity.

Not sure if mono-U is the plan but maybe there is an argument for dipping into green and getting some ramp action? Overflowing Insight seems very expensive (draw seven with multiple Psychic Corrosions on the field seems game ending but I can't imagine getting to it with red being so popular and Grixis on the rise to power)

Nezahal, Primal Tide and Fleet Swallower seem like sweet creatures, but getting them down is the key.

I would just like to mention that I do not have any experience playing high level magic, but I have watched a ton of it. With this being said I think having either some Nezahal, Primal Tide or Kefnet the Mindful would go well in this deck. Nezahal, Primal Tide moreso in the sideboard to help against those control matchups whereas Kefnet the Mindful is good enough to main deck as it does not die to your own fumigate and can be a reasonable clock on your opponent. Anyways, good luck with the deck!
