Nightscape Familiar Discussion

Here are some suggestions: Talent of the Telepath lets you use the opponents removal (like if you need exile or enchantment removal), generate value, or it can be an emergency cultivate or something against a green player. Also its cheap. Memory Plunder is in a similar vein. Better when you need a specific spell, but it doesn't mill potential combo pieces, etc. Vandalblast is a great one sided artifact removal, and kess can cast it twice. Nightscape Familiar is a great cost reducer I don't see. Dack Fayden should be in your deck. At the minimun it's often ramp (can steal their mana rocks) or looting for what you need. At most it steals their combos. Toxic Deluge is one of the best board wipes in commander.Sire of Stagnation is great draw that makes opponents hesitant to play lands and can exile key cards. Sphinx of the Final Word this might only perform well in a certain meta, but worth considering. Imprisoned in the Moon You can't repeat this but its worth it. Shut down their commanders. Reliquary Tower Pretty self explanatory in edhDesolate Lighthouse is a great looting tool when you want itDemonic Consultation instant wins with Laboratory Maniac.

These next two are probably too expensive right now, but I am mentioning them because they are being reprinted in Iconic Masters which comes out in November so they're price will go down. Consecrated Sphinx great drawKokusho, the Evening Star usually kills all opponents with kicked Rite of Replication

I purposely run a low creature count. I like Nightscape Familiar but with Baral and Goblin Electromancer I think there's enough cost reduction. The reason I didn't chose the Familiar over Electromancer was simply that I didn't own one.

It's an easy upgrade, but not a very urgent one so while I'll definitely trade it somewhen, it's not something I'm ordering asap exclusively ;)

Thank you for the suggestion!

I would highly suggest:

Yawgmoth's WillWindfallWheel of FortuneDuressGushImpulsePyroblastChrome MoxLotus PetalMana CryptMana VaultMox DiamondNecropotenceMystic RemoraFact or Fiction

My first cuts would be:

Talrand, Sky Summoner You already have far better win-cons.Liliana of the Veil Great card, but unnecessary for combo.Phyrexian Arena Too slow. This deck isn't in it for the long haul.Lotus Bloom I love this in Yidris, but not where there's no way to cheat it.Rakdos Charm Would only play this in a control version of the commander/deck.Dreadbore Same as above.Nightscape Familiar Never have been too impressed by these effects in storm.Serum Visions One of my least favorite draw spells in the format.Grixis Panorama I would cut 6 lands down to 30. You'll find yourself flooded with this many.

Beyond this, you have to play test the deck a ton to get a feel for it. I hope you enjoy!

Nice deck. Some thoughts/suggestions

Draw spells

Time Spiral
Wheel of Fortune
These are all great here. The fact that two of them wipe graves isn't an issue - you're going to reload your immediately.
Gitaxian Probe


cut Underground River and friends
add Underground Sea and friends
You're trying to run High Tide, so you need as many actual Islands as you can get.
cut Dragonskull Summit and friends
add Misty Rainforest etc
Same idea here. Also, you really don't want lands coming into play tapped in a deck built for combo if you can help it.
add Temple of the False God
add Ancient Tomb
These make the "free" spells negative mana cost.


Strongly consider Treachery as this is both removal and free storm count. It is also negative mana cost with a resolved High Tide.
Vendetta and Snuff Out might be better off as Dismember and perhaps Terminate or even Unsummon. Unsummon is as good as destroying when you're following up with a Wheel of Fortune.


Nightscape Familiar
Curious Homunculus


Not sure the Traumatize / Past in Flames plan is worthwhile. This cost 7UUR + whatever you want to flash back. Doing it over multiple turns invites someone to flip up Rest in Peace or Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus.
Helm of Awakening is dangerous due to symmetry, but can lead to added explosiveness. Could experiment here with Semblance Anvil and similar.
Mystical Tutor usually just as good as vampy.

Get rid of Phenax, God of Deception for sure. Your amount of creatures won't benefit. Mystical Tutor just as a tutor and Dreadbore for a decent form of removal. Nightscape Familiar is helpful due to it making Blue and Red spells cost one less. Toxic Deluge. Echo Mage if you're able to level him up in time. Torment of Hailfire as another card to fill mana into. At the moment, I cannot think of anything else.
