Perpetual Timepiece Discussion
4 days ago
Xorik_McCloud Thanks for your comments, I didn't know about Perpetual Timepiece and Fraying Sanity! Definitely going to try the first one since both abilities fit so well with the deck. The second one I'll test a bit first, because it looks insane but it forces me to do the extra mill, and that could be dangerous if I didn't have the chance to get the Maniac first.
Traumatize is nice but by the time I could play it my deck would be 25-30 cards at most, so maybe 1 but not more. Oh and I like Tormod's Crypt, but it's only useful if I change the strategy to milling the opponent (which I don't plan to because I have another deck for that =D), or after a Psychic Spiral

Perpetual Timepiece to grab him from the grave and it also mills your cardsFraying Sanity on yourself and use Traumatize once or twice to mill yourself out quickly;Deranged Assistant its far less specific and restrictive and it moves your self mill along quickly;Vedalken AEthermage to make sure that you get through a lot of the mill;Psychic Spiral would be a good idea, especially if you decide to mill them out instead. though if you put a couple Fraying Sanity in as well and enchant each other you can either end in a draw or a win. if things go in their favor, a lose, however i would honestly suggest getting Tormod's Crypt its a great card to have. mill them, then exile the grave

I like to think of Perpetual Timepiece as giving me card advantage.

Thank you very much! I am glad you like the list. It s a fun deck and can be powerful, but to be more competitive it needs some spells to counter the graveyard hate. Often you will encounter Bojuka Bog, Relic of Progenitus, Rest in Peace, Leyline of the Void, Scavenging Ooze, and Deathrite Shaman to name a few. Some cards to consider are:
Next up are cards you can swap in that are not as expensive to acquire.
To allow for the anti graveyard hate cards listed above, I would consider cutting for budgetary reasons: Yawgmoth's Will, Rise of the Dark Realms, Survival of the Fittest, Sylvan Scrying, Diabolic Servitude, Entomb, Coffin Queen.
You can change a lot of cards in the list aside from those mentioned here. Two cards I would not change and would pick up as they are very useful in the list are Volrath's Stronghold and Phyrexian Tower. You can sacrifice a creature to the tower gaining 2 black mana and use that mana to activate the stronghold to put the sacrificed creature back on top of your library. Volrath's Stronghold by itself is also a way to save at least one creature from your graveyard from getting exiled as mentioned in the graveyard hate you would face.
This should give a good sense of what type of cards to think about and try. I have used many of these cards on my way to getting to the list today. Another two good cards that are rarely bad are Wurmcoil Engine and Batterskull. Just good Value cards. Batterskull is not a creature to reanimate, but it is a creature when the artifact enters the battlefield. I hope this helps!

Perpetual Timepiece is an interesting one, although just shuffling the cards in doesnt quite do what I want. A similar card that could be a consideration is Codex Shredder, although the recursion is quite pricy. But being able to stock our graveyard every turn is super nice, and it plays amazingly with Sensei's Divining Top. Ill have to think on it!
Ad Nauseam if I can get rid of some expensive wipes is a fantastic idea. Im still on the fence about the sideboard idea but I will almost certainly make this change if I move forward with that idea in mind!
Thanks for the comments! I appreciate the chance to discuss the deck, which I put a lot of time into!

That totally makes sense. Then I've got another option for you to try out ;)
Perpetual Timepiece is a little more expensive but might be able to fill in more roles than Not Forgotten since they can be used the same. Perpetual Timepiece however can act as pseudo card draw and save your graveyard at instant speed.
If your playgroup is fine with that kind of sideboard I'd definetely go for it. I think I would at first keep one copy of redundant situational cards in the main such that your normal tutors don't have to grab another one to get your board wipes, etc. That do over could make Ad Nauseam better if you can relegate some expensive cards to the sideboard.
It is a pleasure to follow the evolution of a deck of someone who puts that much effort into presenting and improving it :)
