Palinchron Discussion

KABO5e on GW blink (Need Help!)

If you're not afraid of paying recasting fees, Temur Sabertooth could be good for you.

Eldrazi Displacer + Restoration Angel + one colorless mana source land + any one of....Great Whale/Palinchron/Peregrine Drake could result in an infinite combo. That combo + your current deck list would get you infinite +1/1 counters (from Anafenza) and infinite colored mana. If you had 2 colorless mana land sources instead, you could bounce your entire field(using displacer) an infinite number of times.

Just a thought.

Hey, thanks for your feedback on my deck! Funny enough, I knew I was forgetting something and it turn out that "something" was Consecrated Sphinx - so thanks for reminding me lol.

Personally, I try to keep things low(ish) mana costed, so they're easy to play in a hurry, and your deck has a few larger creatures and spells I'd recommend getting rid of. Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius doesn't really seem like something that'd do much work in this deck, unlike Firemind. I'd swap it with something like Sphinx's Tutelage or even Jace's Erasure, which add a bit more punish for your opponents letting you draw. Same really goes for Aeon Chronicler and Windreader Sphinx, since they don't have that immediate of a benefit. Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake/Palinchron is my favorite infinite mana combo in blue, so I'd throw those in instead. Also, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is better than Ulamog, but if you don't have it, Ulamog fits the shuffle roll well too (just without 4 free cards).

Anyways, +1, with some more work and polishing this could be a nice deck to derp around with!

Aethos By Force is more flexible by being castable earlier while Vandalblast is more expensive and sweeps more artifacts. It's just preference and meta. Fabricate is good and now in the deck. Tyrant seems like an expensive combo with mana rocks and a janky combo with Palinchron.

I just try to throw in some stuff, maybe you can use some of it.

Well known combos which might be nice here:
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Power Artifact = infinite colourless mana.
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + Sol Ring/Mana Vault/Mana Crypt = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Candelabra of Tawnos/Palinchron = infinite coloured mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Izzet Signet/Mox Opal/Fellwar Stone/Gilded Lotus = infinite coloured mana.
Palinchron + Phantasmal Image = infinite coloured mana.Candelabra of Tawnos + High Tide or similar = good mana rock.
Future Sight + Helm of Awakening + Sensei's Divining Top = draw.
Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter = a lot of infinite stuff possible.

I'd probably play Preordain, Gitaxian Probe, Impulse and Fact or Fiction. Maybe also Gush and certainly Frantic Search. These help you go through your pile quicker, which is quite important, since you don't have access to a lot of the good black tutors. Gamble and Intuition might be good, tutors are important for in cEDH. Turnabout seems good. I think most red cEDH decks play Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast. Chain of Vapor probably belongs here and also Hurkyl's Recall. I think Dack Fayden belongs in every commander deck. Past in Flames. Baral, Chief of Compliance.

I'd streamline the deck towards fast combo (similar to a storm deck) and remove the stax elements. Usually if you try to be between fast combo and stax you don't do either right. I like Mind Stone, but for cEDH it's probably too slow. Library of Leng doesn't do enough in this deck I think.

You obviously have more money to toss around than my list does. It looks good, but here's a suggestion: you can also aim for infinite colorless mana, push that mana into any one of many "draw X" cards (such as Stroke of Genius or Pull from Tomorrow), and cast a filter (such as Gemstone Array, for which I would cut Doubling Cube). The Ashnod's Altar/Skullclamp combo works to this end as well.

And if this works for you, Deadeye Navigator works with Palinchron too.

These are cards I think might be helpful: Eternal Witness, Temporal Manipulation, Cloudstone Curio, Temur Sabertooth, Peregrine Drake, Palinchron, Cloud of Faeries, clones like Phantasmal Image, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Worldly Tutor, Vizier of the Menagerie, and Sylvan Library for a start.

A lot of your bounce theme could become real broken... you should take a look at my yidris for other cards that might help you.

Have you considered running Palinchron? It is a complete powerhouse in my friends build of this deck and you are already running Nykthos, Lens, and Caged Sun so it should fit in nicely. You of course could also consider Gauntlet of Power, Harbinger of the Tides, Lighthouse Chronologist, Graceful Adept, Silumgar Sorcerer, and a Sower of Temptation.

Thank you for the +1.

Hmm, IDK if it'd be justified. Palinchron already gives infinite mana with any mana doubler, be it Lens, Sun, Gauntlet or High tide. But I'd be glad to give Deadeye Navigator a shot, Treasure Cruise didn't do much to begin with.

I know of that combo. It's sweet, but too...disruptable to be my first go to choice.
