Rhystic Study Discussion

How's your draw? Bident of Thassa and Coastal Piracy could help since you can make a fairy army and quite a few of your creatures want to deal combat damage.

As mentioned you have guys who want do combat damage, how about Distortion Strike & Artful Dodge to make sure you do? Both of these let you double-dip that advantage.

Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Phyrexian Arena, and Necropotence are consistent card draw engines too.

Whip of Erebos for life-gain and utility reanimation in a pinch.

I give all of these suggestions knowing I don't have to face it for a while, haha, but when I do it'll be a fun challenge to overcome!

greyninja on Simic Commander - Kruphix vs ...

I ran Kruphix, God of Horizons for a while and it's definitely fun. I did go the mana-sink direction with a lot of eldrazi, big creatures like Sphinx of Magosi, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Lighthouse Chronologist, etc.

Back when Prophet of Kruphix was legal it wasn't uncommon to have or more mana sitting on kruphix at any given time. Cards like Blue Sun's Zenith and Braingeyser are awesome with him. I did find a few times that I'd have oodles of mana on kruphix and wouldn't draw anything relevant. I ran the whole shebang too, with Rhystic Study, Consecrated Sphinx, etc. No max hand size and floating mana is great, but you do need to have something to do with it.

Ultimately I did swap to Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and I think it's a little more competitive and fun. She's straight gas.

At minimum - as long as she's in play - every first spell you play on every turn draws you a card. Counterspell essentially reads "Counter target spell as it is being cast. Draw a card." Of course if the card you reveal is a lower cmc you get to play it for free!

Now I'm running a heck of a lot more Counterspells, cards that provide flash like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir/Leyline of Anticipation/Vedalken Orrery, plus Seedborn Muse to essentially share turns with my opponents lol

Thrasios, Triton Hero is also a very competitive creature. If you decide to go with infinite combos; this is the general they'd tell you to choose. All-in-all they're all very fun; so pick what fits your theme or play style and have fun with it!

For the 10 adds you wanted:

  • Land Tax -> Exploration - Since they basically negate each other. I'd run Exploration over Burgeoning, since Burgeoning is only amazing on turn 1 and only if you can see multiple opponents on turn 1, which probably won't happen in our game.
  • Braingeyser -> Minds Aglow - If you wanted to mill people out anymore with Braingeyser, then we can figure something else out.
  • Curse of Predation -> Rest in Peace - I'm not sure how good the Curses will be. Sure, they trigger whenever you attack anyone on that team, but they cursed player could leave the plane in order to spare their team the triggers.
  • Rhystic Study -> Well of Ideas - I was considering running Rhystic Study too, but I think that the Sphere of Influence rules will neuter it most of the time.
  • Meadowboon -> Noble Benefactor - The trick will be killing Noble Benefactor when you want to.
  • Tamiyo's Journal -> Prosperity - Sucks to cut a pretty thematic piece, but it doesn't help your teammates!
  • Angel's Grace -> Privileged Position - Angel's grace only saves yourself, not your allies. It does prevent opponents from "winning", but those cards are too few and far between to warrant a spot.

Resolute Archangel, probably not good enough to bother with, since you already run Reward the Faithful.

Infinite combos? Laboratory Maniac? No Elite Arcanist? What about Rhystic Study? Also Mind Over Matter???


Lol you've actually got a pretty good filter theme going. I'd add a Trinket Mage in addition to the cards I mentioned above, and you might want to consider Gauntlet of Power, Phantasmal Image, and Caged Sun as extra make-palinchron-go-infinite stuff.

Sweeet. I personally like Rush of Knowledge and Vedalken Orrery with Lorthos. Mystic Remora is a pretty worthwhile oceanic-themed card; it's way more annoying to play against in some metas than Rhystic Study. I like seeing Lorthos getting some love, awesome stuff

ncon I'm glad you like the deck! Marchesa would probably be great at something like that, she's a house in this deck.

Sendaran Thank you for the suggestions! I usually avoid creature enchantments that aren't Rancor simply for the blowout potential, but Pemmin's Aura could be really good here. The Sigil of Sleep does seem really dirty with Vial Smasher the Fierce, and usually something I would try even if it was the only good target in the deck, but this list has become so tight in my mind that I can't justify a whole card only working with one other card. Umbral Mantle was originally cut because of the cost of untapping. I did actually make the decision between Ashnod's Altar and Altar of Dementia before, and Ashnod's won because, as it turns out, Ashnod was a woman. Though I might still add it if it can better replace a different outlet in the deck.I love Dire Undercurrents, and I'll reconsider Waste Not. The plan was to use Gwen as a rattlesnake, and I feel like a waste not on the battlefield would tempt me into making enemies. Thopter Spy Network was just a token maker, I never planner on drawing too many cards off it. Do you know of any good replacements in the colors?Mystic Remora is my baby. I know it's just a more restrictive Rhystic Study but it's much less threatening. The cumulative upkeep hanging over my head pacifies other players into just letting me have a few cards at first.

Aura of Silence is another card that is annoying and taxes your opponent for playing powerful artifacts/enchantments and mana rocks. It's also threatens removal if you need it.

Since your opponents will be forced to pay so much through your multiple taxing effects, Rhystic Study will often allow you to collect plenty of card advantage since no one else will be able to pay the mana.

Dovin Baan shuts down creatures with activated abilities, draws you cards in a pinch, and his ultimate creates a harsh stax effect for opponents.

I run a similar Azorius control/pillowfort decklist, which you can find here, if you want more ideas or to give me feedback:
