Riverwise Augur Discussion

Ozzmium on Jeskai Flicker

Interesting list, but there are cards that stand out as, not so good.

You don't have too many removal/reach/draw spells, so maybe substituting Rix Maadi Reveller for Dire Fleet Daredevil could work out. It would allow you to get an efficient body on the board as well as utilising and then exiling high value cards like Chemister's Insight , Vraska's Contempt or even just an Opt

Your curve is an upside down bell, maybe try cutting the four 6cmc+ cards and leave Teferi as the top end? Riverwise Augur fills in your empty 4 drop spot, gives you extremely powerful card selection on a body, and also sticks around as a future flicker target.

And my final thought would be looking into an UWG build and comparing it to your own. There's a lot of super powerful ETB effects in green like Pelakka Wurm , Knight of Autumn , and Frilled Mystic

I would suggest Growth-Chamber Guardian , Lyra Dawnbringer and Adanto Vanguard as beaters and Adventurous Impulse and/or Silhana Wayfinder for consistency. I'd also swap Forest for dual lands (either one is fine), as you can produce as well as

Things I would take out:

  • Unbreakable Formation is a sideboard card.

  • Riverwise Augur can be replaced with better cards like Wayfinder and Impulse that cost less.

  • A one-of of Huatli is just weird and doesn't go with the flow of the deck

cdkime on Is there a card that ...

In Modern, there is not a card that lets you put your whole hand on top of your library, but there are a couple cards that allow you to put a one or more cards from your hand on top of your library. Most of these, however, are not competitively viable.

Far and away, the best such card is Jace, the Mind Sculptor. However, it justifiably comes with a large pricetag. Your remaining options in Modern are rather mediocre.

  • Enter the Infinite, which is both too difficult to cast and will leave you with an empty library at the end of your upkeep, causing you to loose on your draw step.
  • Leashling, which is too difficult to cast in Modern.
  • Riverwise Augur costs a bit too much for the effect. -Survivor of the Unseen is repeatable, but that cumulative upkeep is going to become repressive quickly.

I know it's wrong, but Reforge the Soul doesn't really play nice with the other miracles, maybe run Riverwise Augur to put game winning miracles on top. Telling Time is decent with miracles.

Also, clean up the mana base with Sulfur Falls, Clifftop Retreat and Glacial Fortress

Oh and another thing, you could also try using Riverwise Augur to set up your library. I can't vouch for it much though since I haven't played the card before.

IAmTheWraith on Which commander to build?

2 months ago

I think building Inalla correctly involves looking at value wizards.

I like things like Archaeomancer, Dualcaster Mage, Riverwise Augur, and Sea Gate Oracle. Really things to look for are dig tools, and win the game off of sheer amounts of card advantage, and can go on a wizard beatdown.

Hope this helps

ThoughtContagion on Aminatou blink!!!

These are all cards I use in my Aminatou deck. These first 3 give some descent continual top deck manipulation that I think is worth their higher converted mana cost (compared to sorcery versions)

Augury Owl is a nice cheap blink target to get continual scrying. Cryptic Annelid: can dig up to 6 cards deep to set up future draws nicely Riverwise Augur: is a brainstorm on a stick.

Hostage Taker: can keep stealing opponents artifacts/creatures as long as you cast them in between blinks
