Second Chance Discussion

Ubertaco25 on Muldrotha? Wheels??

RNR_Gaming I thought about Necropotence and Future Sight .

Necropotence could easily be added to the deck. (esp because Second Chance is a fun possibility too!)

Future Sight will most likely not make it in, I worry about the CMC of the card and outside of breaking parity with Zur's Weirding its mostly a dead card. Even with the incredible advantage of playing the top card, we break parity by having Muldrotha, the Gravetide in play.

Thank you for the advice!

What about Second Chance and just infinite turn people out the game?

Does this extra turn theme work? I mean there are better commanders for that like Edric or Narset.

Even if you stick with that extraturns theme, why do you play so much of them? Just play the 2-3 best and recur them over and over. Or use your commanders ability to recur permanents and find a permanent based solution for extraturns. You could play something like Doom Whisperer to spend a lot of life in the endstep before your turn and just replay Second Chance over and over for infinite turns.

Modern Horizons I think has a ton for this deck:

Force of Negation obviously, it is a joke not to run it IMO. Talisman of Hierarchy is just nearly a better Orzhov Signet, so is an easy inclusion. Silent Clearing I feels worth it, but I don't know how much this deck's manabase can afford it. Hall of Heliod's Generosity has the same issue, but with a ton of play on it, recurring tons of enchantments into the deck, for Zur to refetch.

I have heard of a Second Chance combo with it, using Necropotence to pay down to 5 life, then each turn, you sacrifice it on upkeep, draw your card, main-phase activate Hall to put Second Chance on top, swing with Zur, pass to yourself, rinse repeat. Infinite swings with Zur should commander damage opponents out. Feels weird to run however, so I am not a big fan.

Force of Despair stops many combo decks for free, but this deck doesn't run a plethora of black spells to exile to it, so I will have to test that one.

Prismatic Vista also feels really strong, an easy inclusion fetch, with some downside to be fair.

Building something similar here. Tinkering with Second Chance + Ad Nauseam seems a nice idea.
