Oboro, Palace in the Clouds Discussion

SavageGaul on Esper Mill

@ TheSurgeon: Echoes is very cool tech; I can see it being a fun casual card and a decent one-of in more competitive play. I ended up cutting Shelldock Isle due to mana issues; it came down to that or Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, and I chose the latter. Just another preference issue, for the most part!

@ HezTheGod: Thanks for commenting. I actually do run a single Ghost Quarter IRL, as I've yet to acquire the singleton Marsh Flats. It's a fantastic card in Mill--I think Esper colors can support up to two copies and Dimir up to four--but with my low mana curve and many cantrips, I've slowly shifted GQs out in favor of colored mana sources.

Rest in Peace is a spectacular hoser, but not only is Surgeon right about it dying to Decay, it also shuts off a lot of my powerful mechanics: Snapcaster Mage, Visions of Beyond, Crypt Incursion. As such, I feel it belongs in there as a 4-of (which might also hold true for any Leylines), and I've determined that the loss of sideboard space + the nonbos with some of my mechanics means RiP is a no go.

Ancestral Recall is obviously a sweet card. I'd certainly test it if I owned any, but they're a tad pricy, and perhaps inferior to other card draw options available (how often can you say that in Modern?!).

Thanks again!

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds dodges land destruction, but that's about it. Since the deck only ones LD spell (Catastrophe), and little to nothing in the way of Landfall effects, it's not worth using.

Does Oboro, Palace in the Clouds do anything in the deck that I'm too dumb to see? Love the deck though! +1

@Tlipoch: Budget version would be Breaking as well for Glimpse the Unthinkable. As for Thought Scour, it is a great Instant-speed mill card for just so I'd personally keep it in. It's real versatile. I totally second Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, you can abuse the crap out of Hedron Crab that way. Also, running Deprive can have this effect with normal lands too.

@leon_bulminot: Nice deck, I like the inclusion of the new energy guy, Minister of Inquiries. A cute little interaction would be to put in 4x Aether Hub for on-the-go budget mana-fixing and you could even keep this guy going a little longer if you wanted. Also, it looks like your deck is pretty diverse in card types. You could add in some Artifacts like Shriekhorn or Mesmeric Orb, then put in a playset of Manic Scribe for more repeatable mill.

Awh..."Low cost" in terms of CC or money?


I don't like Mind Funeral: you can mill 30 cards as only 4 cards :/

I suggest Glimpse the Unthinkable (budget version Mind Sculpt) : things that have a secure mill-rate

If you need some substitute for Thought Scour ...Visions of Beyond is the mill-version of Ancestral Recall you need this!

And for your goal of 3 cards every turn, I think that Oboro, Palace in the Clouds can be your best friend ;)

(I' a mill player too ;) )

For sideboard Instead of Cremate i would put Ravenous Trap

Ok, I've got a combo for you. Sakura-Tribe Scout, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds and Retreat to Coralhelm. Sakura-Tribe scout can definitely help in the early game, Oboro's a free landfall proc every turn - and you can save it from land destruction by tapping it and bringing it back - and Retreat to Coralhelm is brilliant for getting what you need earlier, or just getting one extra blocker. The infinite combo is probably pretty obvious - Tap Sakura for Oboro (If you've already played your land for the turn), untap with Coralhelm, then tap Oboro and bounce it. Repeat this as many times as you like. Sylvan Scrying can help find the land you need, if you're getting colour screwed in anything except for green.
