Oboro, Palace in the Clouds Discussion

mymanpotsandpans on The Merfolk Set The Pace, Not You [help]

River of Tears would give you a blue source doesn't get hit by Choke, which is one of the main reasons why merfolk runs Minamo, School at Water's Edge and Oboro, Palace in the Clouds. You can also get some benefit in the right opportunities to save 2-4 life on casting Dismember. The iconic masters version is about a dollar so it wouldn't be that bad in the long run.

In all honesty, I'd cut the 3 Delvers for 3 Fraying Sanity. This is especially good since your Tome Scours will mill for 10 and make them better late-game plays. I'd also consider swapping Ghost Quarters for Field of Ruins, since field forces a search from your opponent so you can cast Archive Trap for free, whereas Quarter is a 'may' ability that puts you down a land. Also, I'd run the Mesmeric Orbs in the MD if you want to run them at all. Maybe shaving on a Crypt Incursion and some scours, Phantasms, or Mind Funerals. Orbs are great with Fraying Sanity since it allows you to play a mill card on turn 2 while saving the other 2 cmc spells for after a Sanity on turn 3. Swapping out the Misty Rainforest for an Oboro, Palace in the Clouds would be good since you're running Crabs. I love it as a 1-of in my deck. Set Adrift is a good SB card that gets rid of anything by putting it on top of your opponent's deck then milling it away with another spell. Hope some of that helps! Happy Milling!

Just discovered Oboro, Palace in the Clouds I'll probably add it

Always great to see another Talrand player. +1 from me!

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds synergizes with Quicksilver Fountain. I'm also curious as to your experience with the fountain. I have a competitive talrand deck but don't run it because it feels slow. Thoughts?

As Foretold - (Read) EACH TURN!!!

back to basics - Who needs friends

Future Sight - A lot of people don't like this card because your opponents will know what you're drawing. Since your deck is basically counter, draw and bounce, it doesn't really matter if they know if they can't stop you. I like this card because it provides CRAZY value

Invoke Prejudice - Who needs friends right?

Land Equilibrium - I watch the show friends since I have no friends once I played this card.

Mystic Remora - MORE TAXING!

Rhystic Study - Surprised you don't already have it in the list

Treachery - Very useful. You don't always want to counter something when you can just steal it later and have lands open for counter magic later. Works well with mana doublers like Caged Sun

I love proteous staff, but you seem to have too many creatures for a talrand deck. If you really wanna play the staff, you should limit yourself to just a few bombs or very useful utility creatures like Snapcaster Mage.

Speaking of wizards, add Riptide Laboratory to save talrand and get extra uses out of snapcaster.

I recommend to take out the following...

Dissipation Field - Allows opponents to abuse ETB effects.

Favorable Winds - Win more. Not needed if you're behind, not too impact if you're ahead.

Curse of the Swine - It's an ok card, meta dependent.

Distant Melody - Replace with nonconditional draw. This card is great if you can pull it off, useless if you can't. You should go with something more traditional.

Temple of the False God - Replace with Ancient Tomb as it is non conditional.

If you have any questions, please let me know. If you want some more ideas, check out my competitive deck Tisk Tisk Talrand

Hey good_succ thanks for the comment!

The reason for 3x Oboro is so that I get the opportunity to see it and use it! As if I have Quicksilver Fountain then I can target Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, bounce it to it own ability and then play it again making sure that not every land is an island for Quicksilver!

Now on to Aquitect's Will, if it turned it into only an island then there is no doubt that I would include it! but since it allows the opponent to tap for whatever other colors it doesn't seem like that path I want to go down!

Mana is not the problem here. The snake only helps is if you have a Tideforce Elemental instead of the Retreat to Coralhelm AND/OR no Amulet of Vigor. COmbo wont work ith the Elemental and Oboro, Palace in the Clouds of-course. I dropped the Snek to add more pieces to gather the combo (all the sorcerys). A 3 card combo that ALSO requires specific lands is a lofty idea. I'm still working on it. I doubt it'll ever be any good but it's fun when it goes off and that's pretty often.

thanks for the help evermoistcorndog ! May all your mulligans be the perfect hand~

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds is never a bad option. I would leave out the aqueducts. You have too much land anyhow. 20 will be enough for this build.
