Not of This World Discussion

FilmCriticFrog, well, since Urzatron is still legal, I'd utilize those, with Eldrazi Temple and Vesuva. Eldrazi Temple can get pretty pricy, but they give you an extra 16 mana in total, as well as using Vesuvas to copy the Eldrazi Temples (or even Urza's Tower if Tron was assembled)

In addition, some more Mana fixing needs to be done. I'd run 4-of for Conduit of Ruin to make up for the loss of Sanctum of Ugin, and decrease the total casting cost of your creatures by 8, rendering a large portion of the deck virtually free to cast. The only downside is that you can only search for Creatures, so they'll be less constant Eldrazi Conscription or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, but an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn for as low as 7 is pretty spicy.

In addition, I'd run none of the Breaker of Armies, Eldrazi Devastator or Endbringer and instead run a playset of Kozilek's Channeler, it's easy to cast, easy to defend, and gives a nice amount of extra Mana.

Finally, I'd run 4-of for Thought-Knot Seer and replace the Desolation Twins, with the loss of speed, you want more control. You'll find Not of This World to be more pivotal than I do, and might want to replace Scour from Existence with Skittering Invasion, as it provides chump blockers and 5 additional Mana.

This is all theoretical, but I hope it does help you a bit.

Not of This World is better than apostle's blessing, it's a wall of text and it's flavourful for the demon it's protecting

Would it be possible to make room for a Not of This World just in case you have to beat down with the Sky Swallower?

How about Not of This World to protect your Eldrazi?

What do you cut, though? I was also thinking Not of This World, because Mirage Mirror can copy so many things, it can be its own win condition if you use it alongside something like Hissing Quagmire.

Hey everyone, just realized its been 6 months since my last comment. Sorry for the late replies!

I ended up running Lethal Vapors for a short time, the ability was cool, but typically the card would just become a removal target before really reaping the full benefit that the card provided. AeroOnFire is correct in that it is a very "hate-me" kind of card.

I also agree for their comment about Paradox Engine and Not of This World, though I could see their benefit in different builds.

I used to run Tenza, Godo's Maul but took it out for not doing a whole lot compared to my other equipment. However, I may be looking into adding some of the cards you've recommended and taking out some removal or control that I currently have in the deck.

Thank you all for the suggestions!

You know what ability separates humans from animals?


Let's use the power of IMAGINATION to playtest this deck.

Turn Four: I finally can cast Madcap Experiment! > Someone counters it. > Scoop.

Turn X(2-4): [Rite of Flame]x(1-4) + Luck > Madcap Experiment > Countered. > Scoop and cry.

Turn X: The opponent plays discard and you lose Madcap Experiment > Scoop.

Now let's use imagination to imagine your face in these scenarios!

Your face when you realize Not of This World and Mages' Contest only are good at countering if you have the creature out.

Your face when you realize this deck is basically just a crappier version of a Gamekeeper Deck.

Your face when you realize this deck is basically your deck: Aaand You're Done Playing, but awful and less versatile. (4x Faithless Looting, 4x Gitaxian Probe, 4x Gamble, 4x Fling, + Platinum Emperion...) (YOU COULDN'T FIND ANOTHER MORE INTERESTING DECK TO MAKE THAN THIS TURN FOUR EASILY COUNTERABLE REANIMATE DECK?)


Trash this and get back to the lab.
