Profaner of the Dead Discussion

This is a very cool deck, I like :)

Have you ever considered Profaner of the Dead for this? It would do quite a lot for you I think.

@Iron_Cube: Yeah, I just thought that there is enough synergy so that being a wizard might be enough. Of course there are better additions.

Inundate looks nice and if I decide to make room for another sweeper this will go in! (It's only sorcery speed though...) Almost forgot about Fatespinner - definitely need to find some space for this cutie. Profaner of the Dead seems kind of meh to me. Most of my creatures have low power and are therefore bad targets to exploit.

This looks pretty controlling but I like that it is all about bouncing, my favorite form of control in blue! Not sure if I'm excited to play against this, haha, but it'd be a fun challenge once you get it tuned (Zada's horde might cry).

To use Heidar's ability sooner and multiple times I'd add Thousand-Year Elixir, Magewright's Stone, Fatestitcher, Retreat to Coralhelm, and Lightning Greaves.

You said draw could be better so why not do a wizard sub-theme? This obviously means including Azami. But guys like AEther Adept, Aven Augur, Barrin, Master Wizard, Cephalid Constable, Echo Tracer, Profaner of the Dead, etc. play well within a bouncing theme. They can give you the bounce control you need until Heidar is up and running and be draw/chump blockers before/after that.

Distant Melody, Rush of Knowledge, and Flow of Ideas could net 5+ cards most times.

Archaeomancer, Snapcaster Mage, and Scrivener to get back some of your spells for another round of fun.

If going the wizard tribal route the adding of Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, and Docent of Perfection  Flip will quickly close out an empty board.

I know there's a bunch of pet cards in here that I'm unaware of so let me know if you want me to suggest cuts and I will. I realize too I'm suggesting altering your deck a bunch but I think it'd be more consistent this way while still being quite unique compared to other tribal wizard builds.

It was more of a joke based on the title, and Fugitive Wizard is considered bad because it's a 1/1 for 1, and no ability. A wizard with no ability probably doesn't deserve to be called a wizard. If you need it for tribal synergy it's there, but other cards would be better, like Mothdust Changeling or anything else. In EDH 1 drop creatures are usually bad unless they have great abilities (Mother of Runes, etc.)

Now I'll try to find some constructive suggestions... Starting with Inundate because one sided board wipe are always nice. Profaner of the Dead is similar and I really like it. Also Fatespinner could definitely annoy your opponents...

Mistblade Shinobi, Ninja of the Deep Hours, Cephalid Constable could be good. Especially with your commander

Aether Gale, AEther Mutation, Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Displacement Wave, Distorting Wake, Profaner of the Dead, Reality Strobe lol do this!, Scourge of Fleets, Words of Wind (very good if you start swarming with edric/bident of thassa out)

you might want Lifegift as well, people be gunning for blue decks!

Authority of the Consuls, Viridian Corrupter, Skyshroud Elf, Profaner of the Dead, Mana Vault, Vampiric Tutor, and Sliver Queen = about 82.04


Cloud Key, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Sol Ring, Thousand-Year Elixir, Polluted Delta, Wooded Foothills, Blood Crypt, Steam Vents, and Watery Grave = about 81.07 which is slightly less than $1 difference.

let me know your thoughts and if you seen anything else in my binder you would like as there are some other cards I will trade for, just not priorities. ie, it depends on what else you would want.

Sliver Queen, Vampiric Tutor, Mana Vault, Dream Halls, Profaner of the Dead,Skyshroud Elf, Viridian Corrupter are cards I would be interested in. I have unlisted cards, but want to see what you still have.

I could trade for the sanctum but doubt I have enough for it and the other cards, as it's not a high priority.

I may trade for that foil also if we can work something out.

Hey, pskinn01. How would you feel about my Mana Vault, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Viridian Corrupter, Skyshroud Elf, and Profaner of the Dead for your Thousand-Year Elixir, Cloud Key, and Kruphix, God of Horizons? I'd love it trade you that Authority of the Consuls as well for like a Sol Ring and some filler.
