APPLE01DOJ on Verity Circle In U/W Control?

1 week ago


Anybody think this is worthy of a singleton slot in U/W Control?

My thinking is that it has a lot of synergy with Cryptic Command but also late game it can serve the same purpose as Cryptic Command being able to tap down a threat or two and draw a card.

Here's my current list. U/W Control 2018 (End of Year Version)

I'm thinking of replacing Pieces of the Puzzle with this or Merchant Scroll.

Good start!

More cards you should consider to make cards like Quiet Speculation more viable: Increasing Ambition, Increasing Confusion and Deep Analysis

Here are a few other suggestions I think would work well with your deck: Academy Elite, Pieces of the Puzzle, Possessed Skaab and The Mirari Conjecture.

In terms of what to cut, Crab Umbra does protect your commander from a board wipe and lets you untap, but it doesn't help with Dralnu's painful downside and there are more efficient ways to untap your commander. Corrupted Conscience also seems a bit random in your deck, since it doesn't really synergize with anything, though it's still a powerful card. Unwind seems like the weakest and narrowest of your counters, of which you already plenty. Nightveil Sprite is a great card in 60-card constructed, but might fall short in a multi-player, 100-card format.

Great deck! I do not look forward to playing against you...

Think Twice, Remand (instead of some of your other counterspells), Gifts Ungiven (Maybe), Thought Scour, Take Inventory, and Pieces of the Puzzle.

This deck could be so much better is it was U/R.

And yeah, I probably underrestamated Echoing Truth, it's not that it's good, it's that it's important to have some "removal". You could probably change Reality Shift to Dismember though.

I think Pieces of the Puzzle is better than Strategic Planning (You are not going to be playing planning on turn two anyway, so you may as well get a second spell out of it.) Also I think Empty the Warrens should be in the sideboard, with 4 Gifts Ungiven and a Merchant Scroll, you can reliably find Grapeshot, which is a far more reliable winton pre sideboard hate.

zenozia Thanks for the kind words.

I don't feel like Gifts Ungiven is so good in this list. You can't get multiples of same card with it, which sucks for Pyromancer Ascension. 2/2 Split would just be bad with Ascension overall. Pieces of the Puzzle works bit better with the deck and costs one mana less so i go with it. You can sure always try everything.

Search for Azcanta  Flip is great when you don't have that explosive start and have to grind trough the game and is even better after sideboarding digging for Blood Moons and such. And you can always discard it for Faithless Looting if you have that explosive start. Its not that bad. But its definitely card that will be the first cut when needed. And don't play 2 Lightning Bolts in main, doesn't really work with Ascension. Better to go up to 4 Sleight of Hands and then play some one of depending on meta. One of Baral, Chief of Compliance could be something for example.

this deck is awesome man I currently own a gift storm deck and I too feel that it's really hard to win when your opponent have acces to their sideboard my only real question is about Pieces of the Puzzle over Gifts Ungiven yea it help putting card into graveyard but you cant pick Pyromancer Ascension from it also having acces to pif and Grapeshot may be usefull also when Pyromancer Ascension is charged having the Manamorphose is deadly so my question is why not run a split 2/2 or 4 copy of Gifts Ungiven instead?

also Search for Azcanta is really by far the worst card in the deck will switch it for Lightning Bolt so you can put 2 other card in sideboard

will probably buy your list it seemed really good!

lagotripha With full playsets of Thought Scour and Pieces of the Puzzle i will almost always find some amounts of Faithless Lootings so finding them is not problem. If i wouldn't have combo orientated sideboard i could play Flame Jab in board for certain matchups i don't know if it still would be worth a slot. That's my opinion, everyone has their own ways.

Thanks toastySmorc. I may decide to cut Dissolve and Disperse for more burn but I'm unable to get my hands on more bolts at the time. Also, Counterspell is banned in my playgroup so that's not an option unfortunately. As for Pieces of the Puzzle I may decide to put it back in, the only problem I had with it was it putting my key creatures in the yard, and it won't let me draw Pyromancer Ascension off of it either. However, depending on how it plays I may put it back in. Thanks for the suggestions as always!
