Runechanter's Pike Discussion

It actually isn't for 1v1 its just that my playgroup very quickly learned that if they give me the card i ask for every time i spiral out of control really fast, so being able to cast a key spell like C-rift or something and actually having a chance to get it back is huge. as a side note i have been considering switching it out for a Runechanter's Pike as a win-con.

matrix1312: Scroll of the Masters works well if I draw it in the early stages of the game. If I'm later in the game and need to recover, drawing the Scroll won't do it for me (as opposed to Runechanter's Pike, which can be drawn at either stage and still be useful).

Preordain isn't legal, and Runechanter's Pike was fringe-playable but not very strong in the long run.

Snapcaster Mage is real good though. Play four of that guy.

yes it is. Preordain Serum Visions Lightning Bolt Runechanter's Pike, a lot can be done!

I think it's a great start for a beginner too! I think I'd cut Runechanter's Pike and subsequently Invisible Stalker for Treasure Cruise and/ or more card draw. Once he gets the hang of control, I'd add a lot more lands too, up to 26 on the higher end. +1! Good luck!

I played Jeleva...she is great. She is niche. I played Azami, Lady of Scrolls, she is also incredible at this and is also pretty niche. I play Oona now...infinitely better than both at extra turns AND utilizing them. Jeleva doesn't do much with extra turns...she shines with Runechanter's Pike and extra combats. Azami shines with Mind Over Matter type non interactive win cons. Oona suits duel or multiplayer and gives you access to everyrhing you need. So does Sygg.

With all the instants and sorceries in your deck, I would suggest Spellheart Chimera. He can get big pretty quick. In the same sense I would suggest Runechanter's Pike.

Isochron Sceptor and Counterspell seems really good. Consider that. You have a good number of instants that would be good under it.

I run a Melek, Izzet Paragon deck that seems similar to this. Check it out for more ideas: Durdle Power!

Get rid of the Runechanter's Pike. You'll want to complete your playsets of Young Pyromancer and Monastery Swiftspear. Also, you'll want a full playset of Treasure Cruise, because that's what makes this deck broken. Cut on the Mana Leak and the Vapor Snag. You can go down to 18-19 lands, but you'll need fetches. The deck can't run properly without them.
