Sensei's Divining Top Discussion

Necro on Duel - Kill them All (Najeela)

Osbert :

Land Tax is bad for 5-color. You need some dual lands and fetch lands. Not basics.

Carpet of Flowers against Saskia and other non-blue generals is bad. Same as Mox Amber when you need another color of mana.

Grand Warlord Radha was here. But i cut her off, because for this deck is too slow.

Buried Alive without massive reanimation. I use only classic in color.

Aura Shards is good choice. I will think about it...

This deck is mostly for Duel Commander. So, Sensei's Divining Top is not choice.

But thanks for advice :)

SamsWrath Thanks for the suggestions! I had Vedalken Archmage in an earlier version of this deck, but I found that I never really casted it. And since it doesn't trigger Jhoira's ability, I decided to cut it.

I've thought about adding Sensei's Divining Top to the deck a few times. I'll have to make room for it and play test to see if I like it as much as you do :-D

Words of Wind I feel is too strong for my playgroup. It's a great addition, but since I'm running Mycosynth Lattice/Darksteel Forge/Nevinyrral's Disk, I don't feel the need to add Words of Wind since it again doesn't trigger Jhoira's ability.

TheGreatSlob I also had Master of Etherium in an earlier version of this list, but it never made a meaningful impact to the games I cast it, so it was cut.

Your deck is kinda similar to mine. If you're going to be untapping stuff, use Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as your commanders.

The one generates you lots of mana you'll need for your stax cards, and you can use Bruse on tapping creatures like Heartless Hidetsugu which nets you 80 life if there's 4 of you. Untap him, do it again, GG.

Some cards worth considering Kiora's Follower , Seedborn Muse , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , Chromatic Lantern for mana fixing, Sensei's Divining Top and Sylvan Library are great with Kydele as well.

Have you considered Vedalken Archmage for this deck? I'd run it in my Jhoira deck but, my mana is too tight and it would add a 3rd 4cmc card which, I would rarely ever cast. However, the chance of doubling up on draw triggers seems like it would be pretty amazing!

Also, Sensei's Divining Top with any of your reducers will allow you to double draw. Play Top for 0 then cast another artifact and use Top's draw ability in response. Draw a card with Top then draw Top! it's one of my favorite things to do in my Jhoira deck.

Words of Wind is another solid option that can act to generate infinite mana with Mana Crypt or Mana Vault while bouncing your opponents' board states. It can also generate the infinite with Sol Ring and Grim Monolith if you have a reducer online.

Oh, a list? Why, here's my very own: The Recursion Nightmare.

About the only thing I'd consider changing about that list is maybe cutting something for Sensei's Divining Top and maybe playing that one new black card from Ixalan instead of Lightning Coils for a wincon. Really, both are slow enough to where, if I'm winning with either, I have the whole board on lockdown anyhow, so, yeah. The list is pretty tight, and about as well-tuned as Shirei can possibly be. 20 basics may seem like a lot, but after a lot of testing, I find I prefer no less than that for coffers, and for some of my double-black cards.

re: breaking Words of Wind... Horn of Greed should work as a substitute for tatyova

Sensei's Divining Top could work as well since Words of Wind is a replacement effect which doesn't use the stack, and if you just choose to bounce the top, it won't go to the library when the ability resolves. All you need is to replay top and pay for the ability. You could take this even further for a complete board wipe with Mana Crypt and Alhammarret's Archive to foot the cost and just repeat until you're the only one with a board.

I know this has been asked a couple times, but I don't understand how Paradox Engine+Voltaic Key+Sensei's Divining Top draws the deck. Could someone give me a step by step explanation?

Spirits on Kaalia the Thicc

Further to the comments onKaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Bruna, the Fading Light make sure you understand that she doesn't work if you play her with Kaalia of the Vast. She only works if you cast her from your hand. And is only really cool (other than she has unburial) when Gisela, the Broken Blade is in the graveyard, Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is pretty cool, win-con wouldn't go that far, but pretty cool. Just HIGH CMC and need the other half to be useful. Doesn't work with Quicksilver Amulet or any type of Reanimate either.

You have Necromancy could play the Worldgorger Dragon too. Just need a Piranha Marsh or something, but the A/D/D have lots of ETB to abuse already.

Since Mardu doesn't have land pull ramp, don't play Temple of the False God, it's terrible, play Ancient Tomb if you want fast colorless mana.

Sensei's Divining Top is good for pulling a A/D/D from the top of your deck into your hand. Nothing worse than an unblockable Kaalia of the Vast and No A/D/D to play for free. It also draw enables the tutors, like pull a Razaketh, the Foulblooded with Vampiric Tutor (if you drew it that turn) and then grab it with the derpy dreidel for the win.

You play more control than I do for sure, You might want to choose 1 or maybe 2, but 3 CMC6, and 2 CMC4 is too much I think. Maybe another tutor and just pull one or the other, keep the best, tutor for it. Cycling is even still a bit too much, if it was it would be amazing.

Can't say much, deck looks pretty impressive and lethal. When you get more ramp, you see more Turn-2/3 Combos.

Cheers +1.
