Target player draws four cards.
1 month ago
Yeah for Kess there would be a couple cards you can cut. High CMC instants or sorceries are fine as you can at least cast them later on with Kess, but other high CMC spells I would cut.
Here are some possible cuts I would consider:
- Black Market
- Swarm Intelligence
- Fury Storm
- Echo Storm
- In Garruk's Wake
- Diabolic Revelation
- Decree of Pain
- Blatant Thievery
- Cruel Ultimatum - If you really like this card keep it as it's funny
Hope that helps :)

Anyway, it depends on what you want from your deck! But strip mine is a white bordered must have. +1 for the nostalgia

Good start, I love these guys!
When I built these partners I ended up cutting most of the fat (the bad coin flip cards like Wirefly Hive for example).
Other cuts I'd recommend: Two-headed giant's wording doesn't work with your commanders (says heads/tails not "win"). Sorcerer's Strongbox is strictly worse than Tidings or... maybe perhaps Opportunity even in a coin flip deck. Crooked Scales is just wayyyy to mana hungry. Boompile will kill your commanders and maybe draw you a card. Ral Zarek will likely NEVER ult in multiplayer, but he's good if you put more high value rocks in your deck and can occasionally open the door for Okan. Creepy Doll eats up the 5 drop you'd rather use for either commander and usually doesn't get the chance to block.
Honestly you don't need to pack too much coin flip to make the deck work.
I'd focus on copying the effects to repeat coin-flipping for better value. You can even use cards like Strionic Resonator to copy coin flipping.
I highly recommend cards that provide Multiple combat phases for Okaun, Eye of Chaos such as Savage Beating, and Relentless Assault. If you go the multiple combat phases route, check out any card that also says "at the beginning of combat" like Loyal Drake so you can the most value out of your turns.

lagotripha - More card draw was one thing I was considering, but idk if I should just add some more Divination or add new cards. I was maybe thinking Blue Sun's Zenith. Tidings is also obviously really good value for its cost, but 5 mana sorcery doesn't look appealing to me. I like Opportunity better. As for Think Twice, I really don't know how I feel about this card. It seems odd to me, and when I look at it, I don't think it's amazing. But I do know that people run it, and I can see why. The split mana cost can be very good, but then I look at it again, and see a 5 mana draw 2. But then I see synergy with Mana Leak and Dissolve, as they share mana costs. I've never tried the card before, but I'll definitely try it out now.

I think you should shoot for more card draw and cut some of the mana rocks. Low cost draw spells like Read the Bones Night's Whisper and Telling Time can help you hit land drops and gain card advantage for chromiums ability and higher cost stuff like Opportunity Deep Analysis and even Tidings (if you don't mind the sorcery speed) can ensure you can constantly fuel chromium. Some graveyard interaction could also be nice, to ensure you aren't wasting the things you discard. Crystal Shard could also be a nice way to protect chromium when you can't discard. Its nice to be able to save him, then recast him with flash without inflating his mana cost. I also recommend Batwing Brume for the memes

Dumgoldfish124 - Tidings is also sorcery speed, and I'd rather not use up an entire turn drawing cards. I'd rather keep mana open so I can take the Opportunity on their endstep to draw. Worth the 1 extra mana IMO.
As for the situational counterspells like Disdainful Stroke and Ceremonious Rejection, they're just too narrow for my liking, and I like having as versatile of a deck as possible. Plus if need be, I could always just Dissolve any big bad boys they try and cast. Of course this is just my personal preference, and if your meta is full of Eldrazi/Tron, stuff like Ceremonious Rejection would be great.
As for Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, I would definitely have him in the sideboard, but I am trying to keep all cards under $1, just for bragging rights. He would definitely be worth the investment otherwise, especially if you're in a control heavy meta. Same for Nezahal, Primal Tide instead of Inkwell Leviathan. This of course is my version of the deck, and not everyone is as picky as me, so feel free to try whatever you think would work better :)

LumpyMilk I forgot to say this earlier, but Tidings is a cheaper (mana wise) Opportunity. Also, Ceremonious Rejection and Disdainful Stroke could be good sideboards against Eldrazi or something. Finally, even though he is expensive to buy, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is awesome against other control decks.

Triggered abilities trigger whenever the event they're watching for occurs. Saproling Migration causes 4 creatures to enter the battlefield, Trespasser's Curse triggers 4 times. Same with Fate Unraveler and Opportunity.
Sometimes triggered abilities are worded in such a way that prevents this from happening, usually by saying something to the effect of "if [event] happens one or more times..." See for example: The Gitrog Monster.
