Psychosis Crawler Discussion

Regalic on Thrasos/Vial (From C16)

9 hours ago

Swapped from Tymna over to Vial smasher, found a Psychosis Crawler in my cards and along with Reforge the Soul, Whispering Madness, Windfall, and Jace's Archivist. Combining these cards with Waste Not and the ability to return all of my cards from the graveyard to hand with a Perpetual Timepiece or just decking myself seems better after drawing all of my cards then the possible card draw from Tymna. Also added in shock with the Isochron Scepter which along with Paradox Engine and mana rocks will let me Shock everyone to death.

Further upgrades to land, tutor's, ramp, counter spells, and card draw. This got my AVG CMC to under 2.5 but isn't quite accurate because very unlikely I will ever use 6 for Beseech the Queen or 8 for Treasure Cruise.

It's a Love/Hate relationship with Forced Fruition. A buddy of mine has one in a Nekusar deck (which would be better in that deck than this) and has lost multiple games because of it.

It's good, but usually backfires more than half the time. I think Psychosis Crawler would fill the slot better, what do you think?

Rzepkanut- I can't believe I forgot Psychosis Crawler!

Iron Maiden will go in here, along with Sturmgeist.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Jace Beleren acts as a nice version of Temple Bell with his +2 and -1. Jace, Memory Adept is also nice because of that ulti.

Spiteful Visions, Fevered Visions, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Forced Fruition, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Temple Bell, Dictate of Kruphix, Kederekt Parasite, Nin, the Pain Artist, Otherworld Atlas, Price of Knowledge, Bloodchief Ascension, Phyrexian Tyranny, Well of Ideas, and Ob Nixilis Reignited are also really nice cards that can go crazy with Nekusar.

Instead of Snapcaster Mage, you can run Yawgmoth's Will and/or Magus of the Will for greater recursion, since Snappy only targets one spell.

Psychosis Crawler could be another wincon. Sturmgeist, Iron Maiden and maybe Runechanter's Pike too. Fun deck. Happy gathering!

CultOfTheHydra, I like the ideas coming, the main reason I'm using Whisperwood Elemental over something like Psychosis Crawler or Dragonlord Ojutai is simply that he can catch me up on boardstate. On turns 1-3 I'm mostly behind and turn 4-5 I want to "turn the corner" so to speak, which Whisperwood Elemental does well (I'm considering a split between Ishkanah, Grafwidow as well). I have a new version without the morph combo and I'll upload that shortly to see if it's improved. Thanks again for the feedback!

Training Grounds make's it easier to activate your commander. Psychosis Crawler is good in decks that draw a lot of cards

Thanks for the vote and the comment!

The Psychosis Crawler is actually fine with wheels and Mindmoil. State based actions are not performed or checked for during the resolution of an effect. It is true that you momentarily have zero cards in hand, but by the time the game state gets checked you have cards again so the crawler lives. It is the same reason that Master of Waves works when he gets blinked.
