Paradigm Shift is a pretty sweet pair with Jace in the Command Zone.

LiquidGaming Muzzio, Visionary Architect was actually an EDH general I was interested in playing for awhile (love the art on that card), but somehow forgot about. From your experience how similar does he play out to Arcum Dagsson ? I will definitely check out OathBreakerMTG.org pretty often to see what's new with OathBreaker and to see what's happening in the format.

Some other cards I thought might be worth considering for Jace's Paradigm Shift (some of these are quite expensive and probably aren't 100% needed, but these are all my thoughts):

1) Bazaar of Baghdad , "technically" it's card disadvantage, but just like Tolarian Winds the amount of card selection for little to no mana makes up for that.

2) Mission Briefing , personally I prefer this over Snapcaster Mage , it's recursion and has the ability to get you past 2 dead draws or give you the satisfaction of knowing you will get a good draw next (not sure what to cut though).

3) Treasure Cruise , did somebody say Ancestral Recall (count me in), not only is it great card advantage, but it's also a way to exile cards from you graveyard before you cast Paradigm Shift .

4) Dig Through Time , the card advantage is REAL!!!, not only is it great card advantage, but it's also a way to exile cards from you graveyard before you cast Paradigm Shift .

5) City of Traitors and Crystal Vein , they probably won't ever make it onto the list, but how have Lotus Petal and Grim Monolith been playing out for you? I would forget everything these cards say and read them as: "0... Only cast this spell if you haven't played a land this turn. You can't play a land this turn, add 2 to your mana pool." They seem like they might be worth considering once you read them from that point of view.

6) Magosi, the Waterveil , first I'm gonna say I have been in love with this card ever since I got into MTG so I might be giving it a little too much credit (but then again I was the player who loved The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale when I first started playing MTG, lol), I feel the majority of the time skipping a turn if you are playing control doesn't affect you too much, but being able to take an extra turn later on can be "pretty helpful."

7) Jeweled Amulet , it plays very similar to Lotus Petal , sometimes worse, but usually better IMO.

8) Rapid Hybridization and Pongify , sometimes things will slip through our counterspells and need to be dealt with (worth considering).

9) Reality Shift and Curse of the Swine , sometimes things will slip through our counterspells and need to be dealt with (worth considering).

10) Lonely Sandbar , early game we can deal with an ETB tapped land, late game an Island is a dead draw this isn't.

11) Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Flood Plain , and Bad River , still on the fence about these, ocassional ETB tapped lands vs deck thinning (E Wilds and T Expanse are better by a slight bit, just to say), not sure on this one. What do you think?

12) Mana Severance , we all come to those points in a game where lands are dead, but not anymore.

13) Mystical Tutor and Merchant Scroll , why not?

14) Foresight and Manipulate Fate , being able to kill three dead draws and for 2 mana on a card that replaces itself seems great in a "53 card format" (us blue players always changing the stats to whatever we want whenever we want).

These were the main cards I thought could make it onto your list, but I'm still evaluating a couple others so I'll leave more comments with those if I feel they are actually worth considering.

I think you'd rather Tormod's Crypt ing yourself into Paradigm Shift to win rather than Tunnel Vision ing yourself. It is more mana efficient.

If you're interested in running actual interaction (that is, nonland cards) Paradigm Shift + any graveyard removal works just as well.

The first cuts I would recommend for this deck would be Laboratory Maniac and Arcane Denial . Yes, it is always good to have a back up plan in your deck (lab man), but I really don't think t is needed here since the cards in your command zone pretty much say: "2UUUU, you win the game" (if played correctly). Next Arcane Denial , as an EDH player I love the card, but in a 60 card format (actually 58) I think it gives your opponent too much card advantage. (One cute little trick to remember about Arcane Denial is that you can treat it as: "discard a cantrip and pay 1UU, draw three cards" if the cantrip costs U.) Another thing I would think about adding is Gitaxian Probe since it cycles through your deck and gives knowledge of an opponent's hand for just 2 life.

BTW, you make a fair point about the issue the fetchlands may cause, but on the flip side you could build you deck in the sense that you are in a 53 card format ( Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Paradigm Shift , Gitaxian Probe , Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta ) and then that would make it easier to balance the quantities of the rest of the cars in the deck.

Mind if I join you on the tier list? I've considered making one.

So far the best variant has been:


Saheeli Storm

Oathbreaker SynergyBuild

SCORE: 2 | 109 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS



The other best lists I have seen in the format are:

Narset, Parter of Veils / Timetwister (with some variants running Windfall instead)

Jace, Wielder of Mysteries / Paradigm Shift

Tezzeret the Seeker / Thoughtcast (Use Tezzeret to fetch Aetherflux Reservoir , but there are some variants that use Clockspinning with it and fetch Paradox Engine , or variants of The Chain Veil combo, idk.)


Past that, a tier 2 would be:

Aminatou, the Fateshifter / Demonic Tutor / Mystical Tutor / Vampiric Tutor (hard permission control)

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast / Divergent Transformations (Kiki+Conscripts in deck with no other creatures, so you flip the tokens into the combo.)

Well if we are going for the absolute monster mash of fun and degenerate we pair up Jace, Wielder of Mysteries with Paradigm Shift for exquisite amounts of chaos. It is an easy format to break holes into but there are also a lot of ways to shore them up and so far the ban list is pretty solid. If anyone is interested in deck ideas there is a thread floating in here for them with a small amount. cough mine On Tilts cough cough
