Planar Portal Discussion

I'm actually considering Planar Bridge over Planar Portal. Tamiyo's Journal is too slow without other clue generators.

Mirror of Fate is awesome, I'll surely put it in! Thanks!

Perhaps consider Tamiyo's Journal over Planar Portal? Less expensive overall, grants more card draw, and doesn't require mana to tutor, leaving more mana up for counterspell shenanigans.

Also, Mirror of Fate to combo with Lab Maniac for another wincon. Activate the Mirror just before your draw step and choose to put 0 cards on top of your library. :)

Saw the link on /tg/, figured I would provide some feedback. Admittedly, this kind of deck is out of my element (I don't play combo) so I wouldn't take whatever suggestions provided as absolutely necessary changes.

Individual Card Suggestions


Card draw/Tutor/Cheating things into play:


Haste enablers (since I'm big on haste):

Ramp/Cheaper Spells

Cards I Would Remove

Hopefully I provided some beneficial suggestions. Good luck with the deck!

If any deck can abuse Planar Portal and Paradox Engine it's Sisay.

My personal opinion: Paradox Engine 1000% deserves a slot here, but Planar Portal does not. Consider:

This deck's playing 12 nonlands that tap for mana - they essentially give free mana with Paradox Engine out. Since Sisay is a tutor that requires tapping, every time you cast a spell you can tutor a legendary. That means you have several combos, but most notably Captain Sisay+Gilded Lotus+Paradox Engine would allow you to cast every legendary permanent in your deck with CMC 3 or less.

It also fetches/casts Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, which is the second combo. With Selvala, Heart of the Wilds+Captain Sisay+Paradox Engine, you can literally cast every card in your deck (especially if you re-add Reki, the History of Kamigawa to the list) by "stepping" upwards in power. More notably...EVERY CARD IN THIS INFINITE COMBO IS TUTORABLE WITH YOUR COMMANDER.

Plus, you know, even if you don't combo, getting an extra tutor with Sisay for every spell you cast is absurd :D

However, I think Planar Bridge is less good here. Almost everything you want to cast is legendary and already tutorable with Sisay. And only two cards in your deck are above 8 mana (the activation cost) - if you want something, you can just find it and hardcast it.

If you face a lot of control I could see it I guess (since the PB targets can't be countered, and it grabs at instant speed) but I think that's enough of a corner case to be useless here.

I've pulled that kindof mana pretty quick in my Sisay deck, Ive had several games now where I pull Multani, Maro-Sorcerer & a hasted Selvala, Heart of the Wilds I know for me mana base hasn't been so much of a problem as finding a way to tutor & plop my non-legendary on to the battlefield... I could certainly afford to replace Yisan, the Wanderer Bard & it can be tutored out unlike Planar Portal or Ring of Three Wishes.... Same thing goes for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx..Gaea's Cradle as far as ridiculous Sisay mana pooping engines go.

That card is going to be a fantastic way to tutor & play Seedborn Muse & really put a squeeze on the gonads

A card that requires as much as 14 mana before it does anything at all is extremely niche, and probably rather bad. It's potentially better than Planar Portal or Ring of Three Wishes, but i don't think the effect will see play outside of EDH. And even in EDH, i expect it to be a casual card, not one for a deck like this one.

Inventors' Fair, and Long-Term Plans, Fabricate, and Lux Cannon would all be worth considering, if you haven't already. Also maybe replace Planar Portal with Ring of Three Wishes?

Planar bridge is awesome, but very expensive. It cannot search for instants and sorceries, but does the fact that it puts permanents directly onto the battlefield make up for that, as well as its higher cost, compared to Planar Portal and Ring of Three Wishes?
