Sai, Master Thopterist Discussion
17 hours ago
multimedia: That's a good point. In all the games I've played, I just see Chamber Sentry sitting there in the graveyard when I could be utilizing it. A 5/5 for 5 isn't too bad, especially when it can tap for 5 the next turn and deal 5 damage. Even for 0, it's a repeatable Sai, Master Thopterist and Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle trigger.
I cut the two Navigator's Compass and and a Lazav, the Multifarious and put in two Chromatic Lantern and a Wand of Vertebrae. Lazav helped me out one time, but ultimately he's a 1/3 that can be turned into a 1/1 flyer or a 0/4 blocker.
Thanks for the help!

Legendary_penguin_of_death: That's a good point... I put in two Slaughter the Strongs and I'll try it out tomorrow. I just played one more game with the Plaguecrafters, and it cleared their board of Knights and almost removed their hand before they conceded. I updated the decklist I'm using.
Wand of Vertebrae was only good if I was trying to find the last of my combo pieces. I replaced them with Navigator's Compass again. I want to see if they'd be a good target for Rona, Disciple of Gix for some life gain (after sac'd with Sai, Master Thopterist). They also fix my mana, and help me get to 4 or 5 colors if I want to full-cast or return a Chamber Sentry.

I think you should look into running Enduring Renewal and a few costed artifacts, like Ornithopter, Memnite, Shield Sphere, and Phyrexian Walker. It would synergize nicely with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, Sai, Master Thopterist, and Artificer's Assistant. It would be something fun to play around with, and could make a wincon.
By the way, you've got two Padeem, Consul of Innovation listed.

Despite full knowing it isn't gonna be anywhere close to top tier. I really want to build something in standard with Omniscience (O.S.). My criteria is that O.S. has to be either the MVP or at least a viable alternate win condition for the deck. I'd appreciate it if people posted decklists running it, give suggestions or just share their thoughts below.
I'll post some decklists as I finish them but for now here's some of my rough concepts:
- UG version of the standard 'Elf Ball' list running multiple O.S. and a Nexus of Fate. All the elf mana dorks+Beast Whisperer/Vanquisher's Banner. Ramp into O.S. and draw you deck.
Salvager of Secrets/Naru Meha, Master Wizard/The Mirari Conjecture + Blink of an Eye/River's Rebuke/Quasiduplicate/Unexplained Disappearance+ Diamond Mare/Diligent Excavator etc for post O.S. infinite something.
Nexus of Fate turns
I'll still be adding stuff to this list as people suggest things.

You're probably going to want to ditch Zhalfirin Void for two more Drowned Catacomb. As you pointed out, the triple black mana on the lich is clunky, and having two lands that basically just scry 1 and become dead cards is not going to do you any favors. Otherwise, this looks pretty sweet, and I might throw this together in paper to try out. I'd probably move Unmoored Ego to the sideboard and stick in a pair of Sai, Master Thopterist for some additional protection/aggro/artifact value.

Hey, great concept. Consider taking more advantage of Karn if you're building around him?
Consider more artifacts and Sai, Master Thopterist? Artifacts to consider are: Traveler's Amulet, Thaumatic Compass Flip, Fountain of Renewal, Sorcerous Spyglass, Sentinel Totem and Orazca Relic. More artifacts are not just good with Karn's constructs, but also Zahid and Tezzeret since you want three artifacts in play when you play Tezzeret to -0 to draw two cards. Totem is good right now in Standard because Golgari is focused on abusing the graveyard. The graveyard is essentially another hand for your Golgari opponent. Totem can stop this nonsense.
Consider this artifact base with Sai/Karn/Tezzeret/Zahid:
- 3-4x Sai
- 2x Zahid
- 4x Karn
- 2x Tezzeret
- 4x Amulet
- 3x Fountain
- 2x Totem (more in the sideboard)
- 4x Map
- 3x Compass
- 1x Spyglass (more in the sideboard)
- 2x Relic
Good luck with your deck.
