Primal Wellspring Discussion

I like it. I wanted to make a black and blue version with cards like Doomfall as well.
Have you tried Glimmer of Genius instead of Hieroglyphic Illumination? I appreciate the ability to cycle and actually use both cards in my grixis deck for standard, but you could be doing a little more that just drawing. The scry on glimmer really is worth it. And that would build energy for your Dynavolt towers.
You may also consider 2 copies of Field of Ruin and 2 copies of Arch of Orazca as well. Field of ruin destroys non basic lands, including things like Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin and Primal Wellspring Flip or Adanto, the First Fort. Its a very very well rounded card for standard. The Arch of Orazca just helps regain card advantage if you hit a stalling point.

I think your right. i will update the list once I've fully decided what to change. I might change Fumigate to Star of Extinction. I might also take out Queen's Commission to add in more Lightning Strike and or more of Disallow. I will say that Pirate's Prize will be replaced by Glimmer of Genius. The mana base will be changed to add in Aether Hub to add in more mana fixing. While I was hesitant to take out Pirate's Prize at first, smoother mana and instant speed deck manipulation/Card draw is a lot better. I don't wanna add cards that don't in some way get better with Primal Wellspring unless it's necessary for the deck's survival. The key is finding those card's that are adequate without it, but get even better with it. Thank you for the suggestions still!
I also only have 2 Settle the Wreckage at the moment so that's why their isn't more in the deck sadly.

As I understand it, Primal Wellspring creates a delayed trigger. What I'm unclear about is, if the trigger itself goes onto the stack and I can respond to it (or someone could Stifle it), or if it just happens and both original and copy go onto the stack simultaneous - kinda like a replacement effect.
My guess would be it's the latter. It sounds very similar to Day's Undoing's "if it's your turn ..." clause, which also just happens.
Thanks a lot to everyone that can clear up my confusion :)

If a mana source is defined as any permanent with at least one mana ability, there are some really disgusting things you could do. Composite Golem into Maelstrom Archangel (or any number of other 5 drops), Ashnod's Altar into cheerio shenanigans, Primal Wellspring into Dark Ritual/Cabal Ritual, or just start the game with a free Ramos, Dragon Engine or Rosheen Meanderer. Maybe that all requires too much building around, but maybe that could also be the point. It'd be like EDH but your commander is just a mana source. Of course, it would never work. After all, it would only be a matter of time before Warden of the Wall completely takes over the meta and has to be emergency banned. 2spooky.

That's fair. I've got a deck built specifically for the Primal Wellspring Flip but I haven't been able to actually play test it yet. If you're not focusing on a constant draw effect then it isn't necessary.
I've struggled with Enigma Drake for a long time. Love the card. Can't make it work.

When Primal Wellspring Flip copies a card with X in its casting cost it will retain the value of X from the original casting. Paired with a late game Torment of Hailfire it is a devastating combo. This will allow you to run less Torments and focus instead on playing removal and counter against your opponent.
If Price isn't an issue then I suggest either The Locust God or of course The Scarab God . Those 2 allow you to focus on stopping your opponent more which lets you play at your own pace.
