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.)

Dimir Infiltrator - Tutor and unblockable.

Dowsing Dagger  Flip - Assuming you'll get in with an unblockable or evasive creature early on, this will be a very good ramp spell.

Reality Shift - Good exile effect in blue.

Curse of the Swine - Also good exile effect in blue.

Imprisoned in the Moon - Incredible psudo removal.

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir - Provides psudo haste for an aggressive build like this. Teferi also doubles as a good control card here.

Devastation Tide - Blue/Black have a hard time dealing with enchantments. You will find use for this at some point.

You can also add some on-color cycling lands. They become useful after you don't care about drawing any more lands in the late game. Additionally, other on-color utility lands would be a plus. For example, Bojuka Bog or Halimar Depths would be fine additions.

Mmmm, yeah sorry my perspective is all in the efficiency route haha xD

But yes Chaos Warp is definitely great, and if you want another type of removal Reality Shift is also another stellar card to run. If you also want to be that guy, you can run Sunder as well since that will leave you with only your creatures and they are bigger than your opponents one as well.

No problem goldlion! You know your meta the best!

Yeah the meta I come from is super high paced and competitive so everything that comes in mind is all about efficiency, disruption, and protection.

In regards to your response, as I said earlier you know your meta the best, I personally don't like one time use effects for long term board state as I like the reuseability of an effect more than burst advantage unless the burst advantage gives an overwhelming board state. I see your reasoning behind most of the cards I selected to consider taking out. If you are worried about indestructible and hexproof creatures, luckily enough we do have answers for them. If they aren't hexproof here are a couple suggestions.

Now for the hexproof creatures, well we only have a couple ways to deal with them. First and foremost is mass bouncing like Evacuation , another way to deal with them is to use cards similar to Reins of Power to steal their creatures and than get rid of them. The alternative way is to run effects like Arcane Lighthouse to make them lose their hexproof so that you can target them with removals. Other than those the only way is countering them, but since you are only able to run three of them that is a low percentage.

For your shuffle effect since you are gaining a lot of mana, it's not really a budget option but the Eldrazi's are an option to prevent yourself from milling out or reusing cards again. I would recommend Kozilek, Butcher of Truth as he provides CA as well as shuffle effect.

Now for the next part... Prophet of Kruphix is broken, since you are able to play with it again. Use her to your heart's content. It is why I said it will be beautiful with Deadeye, you can use more effects that abuse ETB or LTB triggers. Cards like Mystic Snake will gain more value and be able to be reuseable as long you have open mana. Slithermuse also is fun this way in conjunction with your Psychosis Crawler . The worrying part on your curve also wouldn't matter as 6 CMC for a card that does give you advantage shouldn't matter as also you have access to flash from two sources and you also play in a slower meta.

Lastly, Pemmin's Aura is an absolute house imo. Giving it protection as well as pump and tap/untap abilities all on one cards is pretty bonkers. The thing I love about it the most is that it gives your creature shroud on demand, and if your opponents have multiple kill spells you can also in response activate it as many times to protect itself.

Hope that helps buddy!

Hi there,

We like your deck! We would however expect some other staple exile cards for these colours in here like Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , Reality Shift and Curse of the Swine .

A great card in this deck to combo off with, is Helm of Obedience . Together with enchantments like Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void , you can basically mill someone's deck into exile.

Hope this has helped!

Or join now! It's not like you need a whole lot of experience when we can help you with suggestions or questions about really anything Magic related haha.

Unrelated, but my Tasigur Control deck was really fun to play last night. I had a weird first game and I admittedly was a little too greedy with Sylvan Library and next thing I knew I was down to 6 life lol. Game two was bonkers though. We didn't quite get to finish, but I made some awesome plays. I board wiped all nonland permanent except for my Seedborn Muse with Pernicious Deed at 4 and passed the turn to untap with two counterspells and removal in my hand. I also topped a Dimir Charm off of Ad Nauseam to counter a Jokulhaups as well as put 10 other cards into my hand. By the time the place closed and we had to wrap up, I had a Paradox Engine , Isochron Scepter , and Reality Shift in hand so I think I would have won that game if it went through just one more turn cycle.
