ChaosJester on Ronald McDonald Theme deck HELP!

3 weeks ago

Hey guys, I am about to create a Chaos Harlequin deck in combination with Orcish Spy . Can someone help me building around it? This will be a casual deck and I already thought about cards like Jester's Mask , Jester's Cap and Jester's Scepter but I am not sure yet. A further question is, which other color I should run with those cards. Blue/green could be interesting due to Ponder, Portent , Natural Selection . Also Elemental Augury could be interesting. Thank you in advance!

I built a test hermit on here that can win on turn 2, usually won on turn three. The trick is to run 4 Elvish Spirit Guide and one or two Simian Spirit Guide.

I used the anger/saffi/crypt/claw combo, 2 of each just in case. Had Guile in case I missed Anger or needed a turn. Guile over Colossus for Force of Will. Phantasmagorian so I could put pieces in graveyard if I drew them. 4 Street Wraith for self-mill, all fetches and shock lands. Gitaxian Probe, Ponder, Portent, all nice. 2 Sylvan Tutor, good in general, great with the Wraiths. 4 Narcomoeba, sac them for Dread Return, bring back Crypt Champion, use it repeatedly with Saffi Eriksdotter, infinite angry bears when you end the loop by reanimating Caller of the Claw. But Sutured Ghoul is cool too, infinite life is not a common strat, and it uses less cards. Still, you should consider the Dread Return path to him.

Fatestitcher can be nice over or with the narcos, depends on your playstyle. Another useful trick was two Serum Powder, because unless two copies of your combo were in your hand, or you already had your Hermit, it was pretty safe to mill your deck down 7, and it improved the odds of getting Hermit out on turn 1/2 significantly.

Sideboard included artifact and enchantment removal, a small Laboratory Maniac combo as a backup plan (like against fog heavy decks or others than aggro couldn't handle), and the emergency option of Pull from Eternity and Memory's Journey for game 2+ when my opponent grabs their grave hate.

Also, I like Birds of Paradise. Hope some of this give you some ideas!

I think I would cut possibly Portent and Mystic Speculation for a better card sorter like Sensei's Divining Top. I also just like Walking Ballista as a card that can take advantage of all that mana. I would also replace Nature's Claim with Krosan Grip because the split second will make all the difference. It seems like an incredibly fun deck to play though with just cloning big etb creatures constantly.

Hey bro, I hope you can help me with the following card choices. As you know I use Portent, Preordain and Ponder in my Darwin-deck - all three are sorceries. But since I use Isochron Scepter I thought about Brainstorm which is an instant and also a suggestion from you. Would you prefer this card? If yes, which of the other would you cut instead? I am not sure if the difference between Instant and Sorcery is huge with those card draw spells.

My thoughts in this regard are: I can use Daze and Brainstorm in the same time. Because I tap mana for Brainstorm and bring the tapped mana back into my hand instead of casting Dazes Mana Cost. So in this sense this combo makes sense or not? What do you say?

Thank you in advance dude! :)

This has been quite popular on MTGO recently, it doesen't play Counterbalance anymore since it's not reliable enough without Top but you can still set up Terminus with Ponder, Brainstorm and Portent and a one mana instant speed board wipe is stil really good. Plus Unexpectedly Absent + Predict is really neat.

The new Miracles decks all play four Portent.

Hmm... So you're ok with Ponder, Brainstorm, and Preordain? I could also run Portent...

I was also considering jettisoning the High Tide. While a ton of mana is good for the right time, I really only need for Counterflux to protect the infinite red mana combo.
