Oboro, Palace in the Clouds Discussion

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.

Hi, Hunson_Abadeer ! The play style is one of the most fascinating for me!I left a 5th fetch in the deck thinking more about revolt than deck thinning, but this Oboro, Palace in the Clouds tech is definitely better suited for that! Ill try it next FNM.
Ive considered the discard spells, but for now im trying to focus more on counterspells, although most lists do have in fact between 3-6 discard spells maindeck. I couldnt resist putting Collective Brutality in due to its versatility though. I will probably play with more discards in the future when my experiments with the archetype move more towards Liliana of the Veil.

Example Mana Base:
1x Card: Forest
That is 24 land by the way I just cut Entreat the Angels to make some room.

Okay so I'm going to go through these from least to most obstructive to the deck
Option C: Retire the deck, this would require no edits so the deck isn't technically changing, if you did this (please don't by the way) your meta is fast so you would want to play either an agro deck or burn to keep up and give you the best chance of success.
Option A: Adding green could do a lot for the deck and it would retain the enchantment focus however adding green would make the mana base significantly more expensive, more on that to come. The inclusion of green would most notably give access to Utopia Sprawl and Eidolon of Blossoms. The former would accelerate the deck and provide it with a way to keep up with faster decks, the later would provide a card draw engine. If you went this route I would drop Gideon's Intervention and Wall of Omens to make room for the new additions. The biggest change here however would be the mana base, you would need to have a fetch/shock setup 4x Flooded Strand, 4x Windswept Heath, 1-2 Misty Rainforest and then 2-3 Temple Garden, 3-4 Hallowed Fountain, and 1-2 Breeding Pool, 1x Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Razorverge Thicket, maybe Minamo, School at Water's Edge, and you probably also want 4 Ghost Quarter in there. If you go this route I'll draft an example mana base so you can get a better idea.
Option B: The deck would basically be a whole new deck if you went this route, it would probably be built around Thing in the Ice Flip, with cantrips such as Serum Visions, as well as a collection of prevent damage spells including Holy Day, Ethereal Haze, Angelsong, Riot Control, Hallow and Luminesce in the side, and most importantly Isochron Scepter to get repeated use out of the prevent damage spells. Again green could be added here but this deck would have a low curve so Fog isn't necessary. The core prison pieces would stay Ghostly Prison, Luminarch Ascension, Nevermore, Runed Halo, Detention Sphere, Path to Exile but just about everything else would be cut or be in serious consideration of being cut. This concept is something I haven't really seen before so I can't attest to its power but it seems like it could be good with the power of Thing in the Ice Flip (this deck would also likely run some counters like Remand).
I would personally go with A or B because I think the deck could work but if you chose to retire it I'm more than happy to help you find a new deck, just I feel this deck is almost there.

Quicksilver Fountain+Oboro, Palace in the Clouds is a meme. You'd also probably be better off with less fast lands and more fetches or manlands, I'd take a look at that manabase. If you're running maindeck Surgical Extraction, I would look at more/different discard. Inquisition is good but Thoughtseize is wider (also $). A budget/flex card you could try out is Esper Charm. I would probably drop Fumigate and swap your removal for Fatal Push and/or Path to Exile. It does get in the way when playing Chalice of the Void on 1 but maybe you could tune your sideboard a bit for that. Obviously Snapcaster Mage is good but $$$. Esper has a lot of strong graveyard and delve cards, you could look at Logic Knot, Thought Scour, Lingering Souls, Collective Brutality, 1-of Murderous Cut, and Tasigur, the Golden Fang/Gurmag Angler.
