Augur of Bolas Mistcaller (SB) Quench Fae of Wishes (surprisingly at 0.19 tix atm) Harbinger of the Tides (also surprisingly cheap at 0.10 tix atm) Merfolk Trickster (in response to troublesome creatures) Naban, Dean of Iteration (if you got lotsa triggers) Tidebinder Mage SB against red and green Nimble Obstructionist Elite Arcanist + Dissolve

I've been playing a deck very similar to this for a while since you've posted it. I really appreciate the work you've done. I will say while I can control and have a meaningful impact on most games, I rarely win b/c I so frequently do in fact fizzle out while cycling through my deck.

Curious with Nimble Obstructionist. It specifies, "target...ability you DON'T control." Don't we control Astral Slide's ability?

I was looking for a deck that had Pod in it, looked at the points spread I would want and found this gem with the exact points spread that I wanted.

I have made some changes, visible in RecSurPod, chiefly removing the one-mana discards, adding an important new addition in Fiend Artisan which is yet another pod effect and another very good creature in Soulherder.

I am throughly confused by the inclusion of Chainweb Aracnir. What role does it serve? a more useful creature like Scavenging Ooze or additional searcher like Recruiter of the Guard would be more useful. Current changes I have made:

Actually, abby315:

Stifle, Tale's End, Disallow, Nimble Obstructionist, Repudiate / Replicate, Voidslime, Summary Dismissal, Discontinuity, Glorious End, Sundial of the Infinite, and Time Stop do it too. Don't worry, you don't need to know these all or anything, it's just that Trickbind was definitely not the only one xD.

Also, Torpor Orb, Tocatli Honor Guard, Hushbringer, and Hushwing Gryff all do similar effects, perhaps this helps, Ethan2003

Cards that could help protect the combo:

Frilled Mystic

Mystic Snake

Glen Elendra Archmage

There is also Spiketail Drake, which is counter unless you pay if you wanted to choke the resources of opponents.

There is also a stifle creature, but you have to cycle it, so I'm not sure that it's immediately useful. Nimble Obstructionist The cycle ability can't be countered, but it's still 3 mana.

Siren Stormtamer is probably the closest you're going to get. If someone targets you to draw a card, you put this in to play with Kinnan and stifle it.

To put some of these cards in, you could probably cut Arbor Elf, as it doesn't tap for mana. Maybe the Talisman of Curiosity as you already have a very well made ramp package though dorks and other artifacts.

One more possible addition. You have a decent amount of wizards in your deck and they're rather key to your strategy. You might think about including Vedalken AEthermage. It has Wizardcycling (yes, wizardcycling is a thing). For 3 colorless mana you can tutor for any wizard in your deck that you need. Need a counterspell? Nimble Obstructionist is a wizard. Need to draw more cards? Rielle, the Everwise is a wizard. As is Kykar, Wind's Fury, Talrand, Sky Summoner and both Niv-Mizzets if you choose to keep them. Also, another hate piece that would be useful is Aven Mindcensor, also a wizard. Both Aethermage and Mindcensor are pretty cheap.
