Pull from the Deep Discussion

Naksu on Oloro, Ageless Ascetic (Budget Spirit Tribal)

Hey The_Baneslayer and thanks for your input. I have to agree on the landbase, so far it's underwhelming, especially with BB costs so I'll atleast add the cheap duals providing black. I really like Second Sunrise too, (Faith's Reward is an option too). So far Recall, Call to Mind, Deja Vu, Relearn, Scribe of the Mindful, Archaeomancer and Pull from the Deep are something to consider, but not sure how many and which to implement ?

I've avoided combos in this to not have to have emphasis on the tutoring. But if I decide to go with the combo I understand I need to have a few to pull it off atleast once in a lifetime.. I dislike combos in EDH simply for the requirement of tutoring :(

So this will be the same as my above comment. Anything I mention here does not mean that they are bad cards, rather I personally think they are less efficient for your deck's goals and strategies.

These are some cards I would look into cutting/replacing: Show

I won't suggest any more until you see these and gauge whether or not these would be good cuts and replacements. I know there is more you could do if you wanted to, so let's just see what you think so far before we get too crazy here! Haha. Keep me updated on what you're thinking, man! Always enjoy helping other players.

A couple suggestions that I've found very good in Melek:

  • Turnabout can generate absurd amounts of mana. If you sequence things correctly, you can frequently play it 5+ times in a storm turn.
  • Some amount of additional graveyard recursion for spells might be useful. Some options there could be Mystic Retrieval, Pull from the Deep, Mizzix's Mastery or Snapcaster Mage. I wouldn't run all of them, but 1-2 might be useful.
  • Mizzix of the Izmagnus is still pretty good in the 99. May or may not be as worth it when you're balancing between storm and value creatures, but it might be worth a shot at some point if you're looking to mix things up.

I've considered Act of Treason but I preferred Traitorous Blood; trample, you know :)

As for Mystic Retrieval/Pull from the Deep; by themselves I agree with you, they're better than Archaeomancer. However, combine him with Cloudstone Curio (or Erratic Portal), and you can have as many recursions of spells as you want.

Hi NV_1980,

I'm glad some of my suggestions helped! :)

I've got few more;

Reverie42 on Melek, the Copy Fiend

I wrote a bit comment and it got eaten by TappedOut. So, apologies for the brevity on this rewrite. These are a few suggestions based on a similar deck of mine.

Possible adds:

Potential Cuts:

  • I think the 1-shot token producers are probably not that great. They're reasonably good with Purphoros, but I don't think that's worth 6 slots in the deck. Don't worry about creature count in Melek. A lot of Melek decks actually go creatureless for the Proteus Staff combo.
  • Phyrexian Altar is probably really borderline unless you're running something like Fall of the Titans to just win without having to go an extra turn by saccing out all of your Empty the Warrens tokens.
  • Strionic Resonator is at best a very situational fork in Melek. It's probably better to spend your mana on a cheap cantrip / draw spell like Gitaxian Probe or Treasure Cruise.
  • Echo Mage is really expensive and vulnerable for its effect. You have to pump 7 mana and wait a turn to copy 1 spell. At that point, you're probably better off casting Eye of the Storm.

I forgot to mention, between low block potential and very high cmc, all 3 bolas cards are too slow and only really get one activation for soo much mana

But what ive noticed as i put money into the deck is it does best when played like storm, casting rocks and rituals and a pain spell and then chaining wheels for spike damage, the cumulative upkeep stuff is rather slow and really draws hate from opponents before you can kill them, and you are forcefeeding draw but you dont necessarily want them to use the cards you let them draw,

Price of Knowledge is ok, but in order to achieve the speed for storm, its really hard on the mama base, the only card above 6 cmc i run in mine is Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, and i never cast them they're only as a more useful Library of Leng

On top of being able to chain wheels after sticking a 1-4 cmc pain enchantment like Liliana's Caress Underworld Dreams or a discard/draw/combo engine 4-6 cmc like Dream Halls, Waste Not Rhystic Study, playing dimir colors means you have access to the best tutors for wheels and graveyard recursion, ive found that filling my graveyard by discarding wheels as a massive secondary hand and then either resetting the mill with the eldrazi titan while milling opponents out often removes the need for Library of Leng, but its a good card to learn the deck in the sense it teaches you what you want to keep or discard during wheels, plus if you have 50 cards in graveyard casting a Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery usually wins me the game with either 300-500 burst damage or decking opponents

Theres plenty of budget ways to recast wheels and other important spells from the graveyard you usually can fill up relatively fast

Magus of the Will

Past in Flames

Mizzix's Mastery

Archeomancer

Izzet Chronarch

Pull from the Deep

Call to Mind

Mystic Retrieval

Dralnu, Lich Lord

Non budget versions would be

Yawgmoth's Will

Snapcaster Mage

Kess, Dissident Mage

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (-2 flip is another snapcaster)

Tutors really help you with getting the enchantments, protection or wheels you need to gain the lead, ill start with budget

Trinket Mage

Treasure Mage

Merchant Scroll

Gamble

Beseech the Queen

Increasing Ambition

Dark Petition

Diabolic Tutor

Diabolic Revelation

Fabricate

Lim-Dul's Vault

Brainstorm

Ponder

Better but more expensive options

Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack to manipulate draws

Vampiric Tutor

Demonic Tutor

Entomb

Mystical Tutor

Personal Tutor

Tezzeret the Seeker

Thanks for taking a look!

Mystic Retrieval might be better than Pull from the Deep, thanks for the suggestion!

I kinda like the Mystic Speculation, do you have any ideas for a cut?

I'm not sure what spell I'd be copying that'd be worth running Increasing Vengeance for. The double red might be hard some percent of the time as well. My deck is mostly mono-blue. It can be hard drawing cards with Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius sometimes.
