Salvager of Secrets Discussion

stensiagamekeeper on Help me break Omnicience

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:




I'll still be adding stuff to this list as people suggest things.

Megalomania I completely missed the interaction between Gilded Lotus, Archaeomancer/ Salvager of Secrets and Ghostly Flicker. thanks for bringing that to my attention!

@Megalomania, I already have Baleful Strix and actually I really like Wall of Omens, but probably going to go cut Mulldrifter instead of Cloudblazer. As for the Salvager of Secrets ordeal, I plan on cutting Possessed Skaab for the Recruiter of the Guard, so i can tutor for Archaeomancer or Salvager of Secrets.

Through testing with my own list I’ve found that Final Parting is an absolute powerhouse. If I already have some combo pieces like a Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Oath of Teferi in play I’ll put Archaeomancer in my hand and Time Warp into my grave. If I’m low on resources I’ll put Karmic Guide into my hand and Archaeomancer into the grave. Return arch, return parting, and probably tutor for more combo pieces. (I didn’t notice you’re not playing Karmic, but recommend that as well.)

Additionally, Possessed Skaab can be worse and better than Salvager of Secrets. Skaab costs UB instead of UU, is a 3/2 instead of a 2/2, can return creatures too instead of just instants/sorceries, and when it dies it exiles, but it can still be blinked.

dommes89: I've seen some lists that run Restoration Gearsmith, which could make sense to retrieve combo pieces from the graveyard. It's too bad there's not an ETB version of Hanna, Ship's Navigator, we'll have to run Auramancer if we also want to get back enchantments (Not that Enral's build has many enchantments critical to the strategy. I'm running an instant/sorcery recursion package with Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall, and Salvager of Secrets so that I can be degenerate with Eerie Interlude, so maybe running Obzedat's Aid would be a re-usable tool.

Given the infinite mana capabilities of Eldrazi Displacer+Peregrine Drake, Aminatou, the Fateshifter+Felidar Guardian+Panharmonicon/Oath of Teferi+land, etc. what do people think about Blue Sun's Zenith/Stroke of Genius. I'm leaning more towards Stroke, since I could immediately get it back with a previously mentioned recursion piece and draw out all my opponents. Plus the added utility of drawing to find combo pieces if you don't have infinite mana is the type of flexibility I like.
