Any cantrip to open the Doomsday pile is fine, predict is just easy, but there are many more in the linked Doomsday primer in the description.

Let's say you open Predict Naming Laboratory Maniac .

  • Your lab man goes into the graveyard and you draw = Gitaxian Probe and Lion's Eye Diamond

  • Play your Led... Then go ahead and cast Probe in response to probe go ahead and crack Led for Discarding your hand and still Having Probe on the stack.

  • Probe resolves and draws you Yawgmoth's Will

  • Play Yawgmoth's Will with the 3x .

  • Play led from the yard and crack it for

  • Play Labman from the yard.

  • resolve draw spell from the Yard (like probe)

All this is interchangeable but this is one of the least Mana intensive piles i know of. Early on this is extremely fast but susceptible to counter-magic and removal hence all the different piles explained in the DD-Primer in the description that i urge every DD player to study carefully and practise!.

Been thinking about building dralnu with doomsday as a wincon.
I've been wondering what you think about Notion Rain as it counts to 4 by itself.
Since LED is way out of my price range i was going for a Predict pile anyways but once i saw Notion Rain i thought to myself, i just need to crack the pile with any draw one or draw two.
Then cast Notion Rain , mill Laboratory Maniac with the surveil plus the any other card if we cracked the pile with a draw one, draw Gitaxian Probe and Unearth and cast those for the win.

Bloodwater Entity is extremely useful here. Its on legs so you can flicker it or copy it. Other topdeck manipulation creatures Omenspeaker Sage Owl Spire Owl Sage of Epityr Augury Owl

Cards that can abuse topdeck being known Psychic Battle Chaos Warp Spark of Creativity Erratic Explosion Prophetic Flamespeaker Abbot of Keral Keep Augur of Bolas Dark-Dweller Oracle Experimental Frenzy

Cards that let you see topdeck Lantern of Insight Goblin Spy Future Sight Magus of the Future

Cathartic Adept and similar mill effects can help you move past undesirable topdeck cards. Gives control when you can see enemy topdecks Pyxis of Pandemonium Ghoulcaller's Bell Drowner Initiate Hedron Crab Jace's Erasure Drowned Secrets Codex Shredder

If you're looking for hard and fast deck stacking, check out Brainstorm Ponder Preordain Serum Visions Index Mystic Speculation Opt Portent Spy Network Trickery Charm Ancestral Knowledge Contingency Plan Foreshadow Information Dealer Omen Predict Bamboozle Long-Term Plans Second Sight

If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

Why exactly isn't Predict in the above list, knowing that it's used in DD piles?

Was this an oversight?

Kross33 they are predominantly there for that purpose, however Predict is a Cantrip, which fills out the hypergeometric distribution for draw spells necessary to always have something to Lab Man out with, and Mission Briefing plays a similar role to Snapcaster Mage in a list like this, however it also being able to dig faster has more relevance than a body since any X CMC creatures we can get to the yard quickly become a sac outlet for Lazav so we can sink infinite Mana into him and equivocally storm out or mill out with his Surveil mechanic.

Are Mission Briefing and Predict solely for Doomsday Piles or do they surve a purpose outside of that?

@SynergyBuild: Well, how I do my share of Bumping is O.V. the Top, so we're even. Alright, maybe Predict should be out of the Question; the Primer above posted on March 14th stated stuff like Unearth , & even Reanimate are both trash. So at least we have 3 pieces we can confirm are not truly needed.

I mentioned the combo as a joke combo, even though , , & even will never get their "Planarshifted-Styled" variant on Doomsday ; but just imagine what the name for the mono-color variants outside of the original: = (I can't think of one right now... X/) = (I still dunno...X/) (I'm thinking of some kind of name for either that's one word, but is like a Doomsday situation, but in those colors.)

That said, I think I might have my package settled for this case...

Frantic Search , Gush (Or something...), Pact of Negation , Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . If I had a challenge for card creation, it's simple, make a "Functional" version of Doomsday for all but mono colors but . Do you thin this can work? I added Pact as a protective element. In case you wanted to know...
