Riptide Director Discussion

Thanks for the feedback bushido_man96!

In regards to the mana situation, if you are referring to the watchlist comment on Sigil Tracer, it is less due to how much mana I have and more of a reference to I would rather spend mana casting spells than holding back for Sigil Tracer's ability. I wish it was just tap two untapped wizards. I do have quite a few sources of artifact mana, which is why I dropped my land count so much. 11 sources to be exact if you count Herald’s Horn and Urza's Incubator.

I will try testing Arcanis the Omnipotent in place of Riptide Director. I could see it potentially being better. The main reason I liked Riptide Director better is due to the fact he isn't legendary and I can essentially give him haste without killing off the original for later turns. Not sure if 7 mana draw 3 is worth it. But it is definitely worth giving a second look. Thanks for the suggestion!

Soothsaying is definitely a cool card. What would you suggest taking out for it? That is where I struggle with this list is I am starting to gain a bias towards these cards, which makes me need other's opinions to help see them more through an unbiased lens.

Again thank you for the suggestions! I do appreciate them. I really want to fine tune this list since I have so much fun playing it. Definitely think this is my forever deck!

I think you don't have enough mana because you are running too few lands. Is Arcanis the Omnipotent not more consistent than Riptide Director? It is a higher CMC, but the ability to just and draw three cards seems good, and if a board wipe gets through, he'll be better just coming down than the Riptide Director. Its just a thought.

This is also where I would plug one of my favorite cards, Soothsaying. It might be worth trying out. Looks like fun, and I love the combos.

Paradox Engine could allow you to nuke people with inalla's secondary ability alongside Faces of the Past

Patron Wizard (oh god he jumped in price) and Docent of Perfection  Flip are pretty darn efficient in all wizard tribal.

Vedalken AEthermage has wizardcycling, which ensures combo piece tutoring throughout the game.

Riptide Director seems like it would fit quite well.

just a few things that sprang to mind for wizard decks in general, but for more tuned recs ill need a few questions answered:

how do you usually curve out?

how do you fare late game if Patriarch's Bidding doesn't allow you to bounce back from a wipe?

how do you reliably/most often win?

I went through the update.

  1. I have been very close to putting Necropotence into the deck. I just think getting to triple black may be tough. The cut would be Rhystic Study. What do you think?

  2. Riptide Director is getting cut for Glen Elendra Archmage. This has always been one if my pet cards.

  3. I slotted in Merchant of Secrets for Sage of Fables.

  4. Mistbind Clique is going in for Master of Waves.

  5. You threw me a curve with Sensei's Divining Top. I guess Preordain is going to have whipflash.

Awesome deck! I wanted to build a Wizard tribal deck when I first started playing. Did you consider Docent of Perfection, Riptide Laboratory, Riptide Director, Azami, Lady of Scrolls, or Vedalken AEthermage?
