Really, unless you can win instantly after casting Enter the Infinite (Lotus Petal into Rite of Flame into Desperate Ritual into Seething Song into Mana Crypt into Mana Vault into Sol Ring into Zealous Conscripts+Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, etc.) don't run it.

Leyline of Anticipation, Metallurgic Summonings, Omniscience, Stolen Strategy, Sunbird's Invocation, Swarm Intelligence, Mirari, Sentinel Tower, Swiftfoot Boots, Vedalken Orrery, Arcane Melee, Enhanced Surveillance, Jace's Sanctum, The Mirari Conjecture, Traumatize, Rise from the Tides, Crystal Shard, Expedition Map, Erratic Portal, Mana Cylix, Beacon Bolt, Stolen Identity, Laboratory Maniac, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Nivix Guildmage, Galvanoth, Echo Mage, Archaeomancer, Battle Hymn, and Fury Storm need to go, they don't do nearly enough.

Up next on the chopping board are every extra turn spell and every 'copy' effect, whether copying a creature/permanent or spell. It needs to go. Past in Flames is about all like that that is necessary. I feel Inner Fire is particularly bad... there are more cards to consider dropping think Jace's Sanctum, the Electromancer and Baral, but for now, their okay.

i would recommend Dig Through Time and Soothsaying for the filtration. I would reccomend Swan Song for countermagic Swarm Intelligence Sentinel Tower and Aetherflux Reservoir for storming off and Proteus Staff to order your deck to hit those odd bombs for yennet. also Mana Severance helps with the charbelcher

Add Mana Geyser, use Niv-Mizzet, Parun as commander.

Day's Undoing seems bad beacause you just want one super sick turn so ending it not ideal. The extra turn cards are not actually super good because storm count doesn't carry over across extra turns. Turnabout and Palinchron are like free storm count that make high tide insane, palinchron gives you infinite storm count with lands and a mana doubler. Mana Flare is basically another high tide. Seething Song is the best red ritual. Sentinel Tower is another wincon, so are Grapeshot, Empty the Warrens, and Temporal Fissure.

I dont like Dramatic Reversal without Isochron Scepter. Intuition is good, you can go get Mystic Retrieval and then its basically a 2 card tutor. Mindmoil seems sketchy but fun.

Neither artifact will trigger retroactively. If you've cast three instants/sorceries (and nothing else) so far this turn, then play either artifact, and then cast the next instant/sorcery, both artifacts will check your count at that point.

Aetherflux Reservoir sees that you've cast a total of 5 spells (3 before it, plus the Reservoir, plus the next spell) and you will gain 5 life.

Sentinel Tower will see that you've cast 3 instants/sorceries before the most recent, and deal 4 damage to your chosen target.

For reference: Aetherflux Reservoir and Sentinel Tower

Suppose I have a storm count of 3. I cast either one of those cards. Then, the next instant or sorcery I cast would trigger either one.

My question is that do either of the artifacts check the spells cast before it (So you'd gain 15 life from Reservoir or deal 6 damage with the Tower)? Or do they check the spells once it's in play?

Hey midget_overlord. There are actually a number of win conditions in the deck and the sheer amount of cantrips combined with Taigam's ability to give rebound is more than enough to find them consistently. You have already identified Monastery Mentor and Sentinel Tower, although you did miss Blind Obedience which fills the same space but a lot more discreetly, but that's only half of it; They are pay-offs to the dramatic-scepter combo ( Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter ). The Deck also runs Call to Mind + Relearn + Time Warp and Isochron Scepter + Not Forgotten + Time Warp as other win conditions. I have tried playtesting with Fabricate but have found it too narrow of a tutor as compared to Muddle the Mixture which can not only find the deck's win conditions but also Cyclonic Rift, Reality Shift, Counterspell, Pull from Tomorrow, Blind Obedience, etc. Thank you for asking! I hope this had made things more clear.

i replaced Pongify with Rapid Hybridization to save 2 bucks

i would like to think that storming off is my wincon Sentinel Tower Aetherflux Reservoir Eye of the Storm with Jace's Erasure or Psychic Corrosion but now that i look at it, your right. I need some kind of wincon. as for creatures i was just thinking the standard baral, talrand and archeomancer

if you could throw some suggestions my way it would be much appeciated, thank you!

What should I cut from my The Immaculate Mizzix's Experiment deck to add Sentinel Tower? Is Sentinel Tower even worth cutting a card for?
