Overflowing Insight Discussion
1 hour ago
OberstHati- My deck doesn't function without Gilded Lotus. My deck is incapable of reaching critical mass without drawing them somewhat consistently. As for Burning Sun's Avatar I'm always super happy to play it, sometimes killing a creature and a planeswalker. I love Expansion / Explosion but it doesn't work in my deck. The only card I can Expansion is Lava Coil and for card draw I'd much rather play Overflowing Insight over explosion since i can cheap it out with Omnispell Adept. I have the same problem with Niv-Mizzet, Parun that I have with Expansion / Explosion, I can't get any value out of it. My deck doesn't have a critical mass of instant and sorcery spells to make Niv-Mizzet worth playing. Also it's very hard to play in my deck since I bring in Field of Ruin against control and Powerstone Shard only produces colorless mana. Thanks for the suggestions though.

The summoner may be easy to kill but it's far from weak. 1 summoner can end the game in a swing or two if it isn't dealt with immediately. And for ever removal spell they keep in to deal with it, that's one less counter spell to deal with Apex of Power or Overflowing Insight. Just food for thought. Thanks for your input.

I see your point about Teferi GingerSquatch93 so I have gone back to a mono-Blue mill build for now.
Firstly,Siren's Ruse is not that great...it's very circumstantial as you can only really target Naru with it and you only have two of her in the deck. What you need to be worrying about is being swarmed by aggro decks...not if you can Counter a Counter with another Counter ;).
I've also added a playset of Radical Idea for more card draw to fire up Psychic Corrosion. Can't believe you have ditched the Chemister's Insight...they make the deck work imho especially thanks to jumpstart.
And where has Overflowing Insight gone?? That card has been the game winner for me on more than one occassion - stalling the opponent until you reach seven lands then BOOM - mill for 28 sucker! For a deck to work you gotta have a card that accelerates your Wincon and Overflowing Insight was it for me. Heck...I've even been using Murmuring Mystic as a secondary Wincon (Bird Beatdown) but you've ditched him too :(

Despite full knowing it isn't gonna be anywhere close to top tier. I really want to build something in standard with Omniscience (O.S.). My criteria is that O.S. has to be either the MVP or at least a viable alternate win condition for the deck. I'd appreciate it if people posted decklists running it, give suggestions or just share their thoughts below.
I'll post some decklists as I finish them but for now here's some of my rough concepts:
- UG version of the standard 'Elf Ball' list running multiple O.S. and a Nexus of Fate. All the elf mana dorks+Beast Whisperer/Vanquisher's Banner. Ramp into O.S. and draw you deck.
Salvager of Secrets/Naru Meha, Master Wizard/The Mirari Conjecture + Blink of an Eye/River's Rebuke/Quasiduplicate/Unexplained Disappearance+ Diamond Mare/Diligent Excavator etc for post O.S. infinite something.
Nexus of Fate turns
I'll still be adding stuff to this list as people suggest things.

Rabid_Wombat mostly because it's colorless and I have to pay for it to mill. And if it is activated, it only takes two, where the enchantments in combo can be devastating and happen automatically. Late game, if I've gotten Omniscience down and can cast Overflowing Insight without mana cost, great, if not, depending on what I've gotten down by then, I can take up to 64 cards off the library.
pbott197 it's a little slow to start rolling, but that's by design. Most people don't tend to worry about an enchantment coming down turn two unless its something devastating on its own. By the time they figure out something is going on, it's too late and I've got enough mana to start shutting things down. Whether or not that design works is yet to be determined as this hasn't been played yet.
Poaralion enchantments don't do anything on the turn they're played? You're joking right? Once its down, it's in effect. And 1/1 flyers aren't scary, they're not meant to be but that 8/8 turd without trample? Well one 1/1 and none of that damage is coming through.

Kapitein_Koekblik Congrats, 3W-1L is pretty awesome results there. Narset was the original "Top Deck Wins" commander so she's pretty hard to beat once the stars are aligned for her.
Pretty smart move to swap in Denying Wind to adjust to the meta. You can also consider Sadistic Sacrament if the meta is Combo heavy, since sometimes, 3 cards is all it takes to shut down a combo deck and 15 cards is just icing on the cake. Misdirection is simply wicked there, great job!
I tend to agree with you about Timetwister. This deck is tutor heavy but lacks card draw engines. I did run some card draws in my earliest version of this deck but has since removed them, e.g. Overflowing Insight, as drawing more cards don't win me the games, tutoring for the right card(s) does.
Looking forward to your updates! Good luck with the games!

I'm using Overflowing Insight as it's less dependant on the CMC of my permanents and is a guaranteed 7 cards. The disadvantage is the higher cost and the requirement, which makes casting it without Yennett a challenge.

I’m not much of a standard player but Overflowing Insight would allow for a player to always find their nexus.
