Reality Shift


Exile target creature. Its controller manifests the top card of his or her library. (That player puts the top card of his or her library onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. If it's a creature card, it can be turned face up at any time for its mana cost.)

Reality Shift Discussion

Xica on Im a poor modern player ...

Well i know am the biggest heathen on the forum, one who dares to preach the falsehood of "win/loss ratio if more important than tier".


(I mean its clear that no deck every accomplished anything in the competitive scene beside tron, eldrazi, burn, D&T, GBX, and they never will - and even if they did, it was either by astronomical luck, or by bribing other competitors)

P.s.: And these views are the least of my sins, i even damned myself by proclaiming that Reality Shift seems to be a better idea for mono blue As Foretold Living End decks, than Dismember.
Thus anyone who listens to me will surely rot in the hell reserved for noncompetitive jankbuilders XD

I really like this deck, Grand Arbiter was my first commander and remember him fondly.

You run quite a few lands in this deck, considering your commander is a champ cost reducer. Consider going down to 37 or even 36 lands.

Some cards to consider:

Supreme Will just seems like it would be an excellent card in this deck, modal counter cards are my favorite magic cards. Mystic Confluence and Cryptic Command would be awesome too, but I assume you're not including those for a reason. Reality Shift is a staple removal spell in all my blue decks, especially awesome if someone plays mystical tutor or taps their sensei's top.

Wrath effects should be something this deck can do frequently, consider Fumigate or the even more broken Retribution of the Meek. The former's life gain can be tremendously beneficial, and the latter can by asymmetric for you in its effect on the board. I strongly recommend them.

Really awesome deck, looks really strong and resilient. +1 from me :)

I'll do some research for you. This is a deck style I've tried to work with before. I like Kraken Hatchling. A couple copies of Spellskite or Kira, the Great Glass-Spinner would make your endgame only stoppable via a board wipe.

I'll look into it more later, but Vapor Snag, Cryptic Command, and I comepletely forgot about Reality Shift.

In some previous thread Reality Shift cam up in the discussion and everyone but me decided that it was shit...

However i dare to say that in this deck Reality Shift > Dismember
(somehow paying 4 life - which tends to happen in desperate situations - seems a lot worse than giving your opponent a token that is unmade by living end)

Xica on How do I beat Ponza?

I didn't mean to imply that Reality Shift is good in the current meta, however this is the instant speed "exile creature" spell that sultai got.
Its pointless against wheenie, but can catch hard to remove threats like Stormbreath Dragon, and would be able to interact well with recursive threats, like Kitchen Finks + Melira, Sylvok Outcast if they would be still played.

It can catch the stuff that tends to be used to hate on the removal of BGX Decks, stuff like Chameleon Colossus, Mirran Crusader ...etc.

Tl;Dr: its not Path to Exile, but its the closest thing the colors, got, and its situationally useful.

I'm really not convinced about Reality Shift for Modern. Looks more like a cheap "fun casual" sudo-removal for Commander or Kitchen Table instead.

If you face lots of Human/Sliver/Eldrazi/Goblins/Merfolk/Weenie decks, then it might not be a good idea to run RS because you'll have higher (mis-)chances of giving them a 2/2 that can turn into an actual dude.

If you face more control builds like UWx Control/Lantern Control/RG Tron/8-Rack, Shift is pretty much a dead card.

To me, it could help against Midrange decks, but there are still much better removals in the format and in your colors.

multimedia on My edit on Ezuri

Hey, nice upgrades to the Ezuri precon.

I agree with ThallionDarkshine the Cube + Sages combo is out of place here. Honestly you don't need it.

I suggest a few Simic Commander staples that are all budget:

Bident of Thassa and Bred for the Hunt are enchantments that can draw you a lot of cards especially if your attacking creatures have trample.

For the manabase I suggest a lot more Simic dual lands most are budget:

In my opinion your deck is currently fine as is except the manabase. Before upgrading anything else upgrade the manabase.
