Sensei's Divining Top Discussion

miracleHat on Budget Competitive Prossh

15 hours ago

My personal prossh deck, this is an outdated list is $330. If you remove the Grim Monolith, Cavern of Souls, and Sensei's Divining Top, Chrome Mox, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, and Chromatic Lantern you should be able to acquire the entire build for $200 (not counting cards that you already own). I just listed 7 cards that can be easily downgraded or just completely replaced.

General idea: get food chain, get a haste enabler, get a protection piece, combo off turn 4-5. This has outraced pods with teferi, breya, selvala, tymna flashhulk, and other tiered / calibrated decks.

So I have spent a while doing some research, and I have found a few things that I want to pick your brains about.

  • First, new from Ixalan is Unclaimed Territory. It enters untapped and makes any color of mana, as long as that mana is spent on a sliver. It seems to me to be a upgrade to Gemstone Mine.

  • Second is Steely Resolve. I haven't yet piloted the deck so I don't know how difficult it is to obtain and protect Crystalline Sliver, but this seems like a good second version of the card.

  • Third is Cover of Darkness. It makes the entire brood extremely difficult to block, which could come in handy if Sliver Queen or some other combo piece gets exiled and you need to win through commander damage or combat damage.

  • Shared Animosity follows a similar vein of logic as Cover of Darkness, helps you get more damage through when you need to.

  • Urza's Incubator Gives a cost reduction of for only to cast. Seems great to me.

Also, I built my own version of this deck. I do not have the original duals, so I replaced them with the Shadowmoor/Eventide filter lands. In addition, I made the following substitutes for budget reasons. (I tried to get each substitution to fill a similar role but I just dont have the library manipulation cards, so I went with ramp and card draw)

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Shadowz6677 on Thrasios Draw Power

A few notes, Mox Diamond Mox Opal have to become a part of this deck. Amulet of Vigor. Ditch War Tax for something that provides you better removal or draw power.

Fetchlands are always a great thing to invest in for a deck like this. And if you are going into the cEDH movement, then you need to get yourself a Tropical Island. Hands down well work it. If you are using Scroll Rack, consider adding Sensei's Divining Top to your deck as well. There is a lot of work that you have to do to make this deck successful. Lowering your mana curve can do a lot for the deck. 2.53 is really high for a U/G deck. You want it somewhere between 1.8~2.1 for your Avg. CMC.

@Delta-117 I'd agree that is incredible, with being my favorite

I did include Primal Amulet in my current paper list as it supports my infinite turns scheme. I haven't drawn it yet in a game but I'm excited to see what it can do.

Mind's Dilation is one I've been considering for a while now. I think I forgot about it tho haha

I would likely run Nissa, Steward of Elements if I had more creatures for her 2nd ability. The scry is neat and likely the most relevant to Rashmi's strategy

Future Sight I took out to run in my The Locust God deck for its infinite combo alongside Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening

Thanks for the comment!

Leptys on Gitrog Dredge Combo [Primer]

@VelvetVendetta

Hello, and thank you for the kind words!

Nath's pros lie in that his ability can be used as a combo piece with discard (especially Sadistic Hypnotist and Possessed Portal) which supports his staxy game plan, but Gitrog has potential as a staxy deck with Strip Mine recursion and Death Cloud effects paired with land recursion, followed by pure Gitrog beats or something like Helm of Obedience as the wincon. A brew with some combo routes was made a couple months back if you're interested: Frog Stax.

As far as you Zur list is concerned, I honestly have nothing too big to add. Mox Diamond and Mana Vault are both rocks that you should definitely run for their massive tempo gain in the early turns though. Lotus Petal is great too, but not too compulsory in a deck like this. Sensei's Divining Top of course is also a super good add, but I can see if you prefer not running it. For some extra enchantment toolbox synergy, Flash + Academy Rector for Omniscience is always pretty damn good, and Rector is fine in that you can use it to find other chants as well if you feel like it and it can also be reanimated with all the reanimation spells. Speaking of reanimating Rector, I also recommend bounce spells like Cyclonic Rift or Winds of Rebuke to do tons of things whenever you need to (such as bouncing an Animate Dead off of Rector).

Reading up on your comments earlier, Sensei's Divining Top is legal in commander, I use it in my Rashmi deck to a great extent!

You might want to slot that in as it IS legal!

Rhadamanthus on Brago + Sensei's Divining Top

1 week ago

You have to do a lot of responding to various things.

  • Brago, King Eternal hits a player and his ability triggers
  • Respond to the trigger by activating Sensei's Divining Top
  • Respond to the Top activation by activating Strionic Resonator (using Sol Ring for mana) to copy Brago's triggered ability
  • Let the copy of Brago's ability resolve, blinking Top, Ring, Resonator, and whatever else you feel like blinking
  • Let the Top activation resolve. You draw a card. The Top you currently control won't be returned to the top of your library because it's a different object from the "Sensei's Divining Top" the resolving ability is referring to
  • The original Brago trigger is still on the stack, but instead of letting it resolve, respond by activating Top and continue the loop of above actions to draw your deck
