Sensei's Divining Top Discussion

Here is another infinite combo:

Not sure if its the right fit here, but I saw you are already running the bracers. Even though you run only a few mana rocks, you can easily add the artifact lands Darksteel Citadel, Seat of the Synod, Tree of Tales, and Great Furnace so there are more chances for him to act like a mana dork early on. If you have Sensei's Divining Top with the above combo, you can draw your whole deck. If you have Kiki or Twin out, you can make infinite copies of the Alchemist, or any other creature for that matter. Now you can kill people with Laboratory Maniac by attacking with 8,000,000,000 copies of it if you want. If you put Squirrel Nest on an artifact land, you would get a squirrel factory. There is probably even more I haven't noticed yet. Seems like it could be cool. Happy gathering!

Perfect_Phyrexia: Sorry for the late response, just got off work, but yea in regards to Sensei's Divining Top I think that is a preference based decision, I like it personally, but can see a cut for it. Additionally, if we are looking to replace Sensei's Divining Top we can always play Scroll Rack, but not sure if we need that either, still a great card either way. Personally, when I have been playing the deck I have been in love with Pox and think it is a keeper, also a fan of Death Cloud, although I think we need to ramp a little into it. The more I research Glissa, the Traitor stax decks the more I feel we need to bust the green element and really ramp into a dominant board state and decimate the board with our stax effects. Even further, if we play things like Oracle of Mul Daya we can really abuse Crucible of Worlds and Strip Mine, or set up for a fat Death Cloud. Another thing, do you feel we should play Eternal Witness, I think when it is paired with Volrath's Stronghold we can grab about anything we want from the graveyard ,seems spicy, but I don't know. Lastly, what is your oponion to playing Clock of Omens, do you think its worth it? Just sharing ideas I have been having, not sure if they are valid :D

The mistake is trying to treat the modern miracles like legacy miracles. Counterbalance is strictly worse due to the lack of Brainstorm and Sensei's Divining Top and as such I believe it deserves the ultimate cut for more mainstream counters (or whatever replacement seems fit). The modern version will have to be its own, and the toying for that will take time. However, that said, I am quite enjoying the idea of Prairie Stream over Hallowed Fountain as the deck is so basic heavy anyway. I hope the other non shock versions like this come out soon to supplement the list

Counterbalance is a lot worse, when mana costs are more spread out, and modern also has some serious problems at controlling the top card of the library in lieu of Sensei's Divining Top.

You might consider Walking Atlas and or Sensei's Divining Top for this deck to help get lands down consistantly or sift through your deck quicker.

JollyD99: I was debating whether or not to add Disciple of the Vault to produce an infinite damage combo with Myr Retriever and Krark-Clan Ironworks. This would also be a potential solution to the second part of your question. Another faster combo (in multiplayer) is Bloodchief Ascension and Mindcrank which is absolutely insane if you can set it up early and protect it. Besides that there are classics like Leyline of the Void and Helm of Obedience. Do you think removing Sensei's Divining Top was a good choice?

Immortalized: I looked on your profile but could not find it, is it private maybe? Link it to me if you can. :)

No Enlightened Tutor seems odd. It's like not having enough stock for your broth- you assemble 2-3 card combos and then win off of Breya! Of course your need moar tutors. Lim-Dul's Vault is another very nice option, like a delightful garnish of parsley on top of a bowl of well seasoned noodles.

As for what to remove.... Memnarch, easily. He is a straight up win-more card (he doesn't 'win' unless you already have an infinite mana combo going plus Mycosynth Lattice. If you already have an infinite mana combo, just cast Breya and win lol). I feel like you could do a lot better than Refurbish, too (I mean, Scrap Mastery is a card, but Refurbish just seems poor in comparison to another tutor or Mastery).

Nice deck though. I've enjoyed checking out other Breya decks since I built mine. A favorite 'random' combo of mine is to add Sensei's Divining Top to the Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth combo. You can draw your entire library at sorcery speed with it- so it's essentially like running two copies of Staff of Domination. That, and top is just an incredible card that I would always recommend running. I really don't feel like you need Alhammaret's Archive. You only have a couple of cards that let you draw additional cards repeatedly (Mystic Remora, Daretti, Padeem. There's also Staff, but Staff doesn't count because it draws your whole library with infinite mana), and running a 5 mana artifact just to double on lifegain doesn't sound optimal. I think that card could easily come out for Sensei's Top- it'll help your curve a lot too.
