Set Adrift Discussion

TheSurgeon on Azorious Sanity

Take out Startled Awake  Flip and 1x compelling argument for 3x Mind Sculpt.
Why- milling 13 is cool and all, but not for 4 mana. And forget transforming it, it's a waste of time. You can do better by milling half early and casting another after a Fraying Sanity hits the board.

Concerning Argument, the card is tempting because of Cycling, but there's never a time you should choose draw over your archetype; erego Sculpt does more for you.

I would also consider cheaper bounce cards like Void Snare and perhaps Set Adrift for a sort of workaround removal of unwanted boardthreats.

In all honesty, I'd cut the 3 Delvers for 3 Fraying Sanity. This is especially good since your Tome Scours will mill for 10 and make them better late-game plays. I'd also consider swapping Ghost Quarters for Field of Ruins, since field forces a search from your opponent so you can cast Archive Trap for free, whereas Quarter is a 'may' ability that puts you down a land. Also, I'd run the Mesmeric Orbs in the MD if you want to run them at all. Maybe shaving on a Crypt Incursion and some scours, Phantasms, or Mind Funerals. Orbs are great with Fraying Sanity since it allows you to play a mill card on turn 2 while saving the other 2 cmc spells for after a Sanity on turn 3. Swapping out the Misty Rainforest for an Oboro, Palace in the Clouds would be good since you're running Crabs. I love it as a 1-of in my deck. Set Adrift is a good SB card that gets rid of anything by putting it on top of your opponent's deck then milling it away with another spell. Hope some of that helps! Happy Milling!

Field of Ruin should be in place of 1 or 2 ghost quarter, its not a may search, so it forces archive trap on the turn you use it. So basically a 3 mana archive trap.

Set Adrift is probably the most useful for fighting Leyline of Sanctity. You might want some instant speed removal for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn hitting the yard like Extirpate that way you can remove him from the game. Other wise any deck running any of those 2 cards will just beat you.

@frogkill45: Nice, I completely overlooked the lack of a 'may' clause in Field of Ruin. I'll have to work some into the deck. The reason I didn't include it initially is because of the 2 mana cost, but it's probably worth it to force the free Archive Trap.

@Caaarrlll: As frogkill45 said, Set Adrift is used over Echoing Truth so that Leyline of Sanctity can be milled into the graveyard, probably via Mesmeric Orb or Hedron Crab. Visions of Beyond does step on Ensnaring Bridge's toes somewhat. I haven't had a chance to put this deck together and see how it plays yet, but I imagine it just requires tactful use of Visions of Beyond (i.e. don't use it with 1 card in hand against a board of 2/2s). Visions of Beyond will probably be one of the first things to go when I need to sideboard against aggro/Emrakul, the Aeons Torn/graveyard-based decks anyway, since Crypt Incursion interferes with it, and Leyline of the Void ruins it. I might drop 1 copy of it.

i can see why Echoing Truth isnt used. the same reason i dont use it over Set Adriftputting it on top of the library allows you to mill it so they never get to recast it. If you play crab and trigger a landfall you have to target yourself since they can't be targeted. this will fuel delve costs. Same is true for mesmeric orb. Putting leyline back in the hand is not as good as milling it to the yard for surgical extraction. The two most played cards that beat mill are emrakul and leyline of sanctity. to an extent primal command but i dont see those as often as i do emrakul and los.

How does Ensnaring Bridge with Visions of Beyond work for you? Seems like Visions would end up negating the Bridge effect whenever you cast it. I also feel like Echoing Truth would be a bit better than Set Adrift. Otherwise looks solid.

Thyrd thanks for all your kind words! I am very happy to help!

Here we go with your topics.

Duskmantle Guildmage could be a standalone card worth to be in the maindeck (perhaps to free up sideboard slots), if it wasn't too much expensive and frail when it isn't needed to make up for the times when it is: when it would be useful, against anything apart from an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or a Leyline of Sanctity deck you would win with anything else earlier and with much less mana. As for Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank being a mere sideboard plan, there is hardly an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or a Leyline of Sanctity deck that couldn't deal with such a brittle combo (Duskmantle Guildmage is a little creature at the very least!); and even if it weren't the case, finding 1 out of 4 graveyard hate or Set Adrift is much more likely than getting 1 out of 4 Duskmantle Guildmage AND 1 out of 4 Mindcrank (plus 1 out of 4 Mesmeric Orb against Leyline of Sanctity) every single game (and it is the only relevant factor since it's unlikely that the games where your graveyard hate or Set Adrift are not enough to win exceeded the times when you couldn't get the combo to begin with).

The problem of the deck as a whole is being very clunky. Despite that, at least you win almost every game where you manage to resolve all of your spells: we hardly need more mana sinks. It is already unrealistic to cast Archive Trap for 5 mana; Mind Grind is too much inefficient even at 5 mana! At that price we would play Jace, Memory Adept or Startled Awake  Flip for 1 mana less. Much like Snapcaster Mage, the flexibility of Mind Grind means nothing if none of its mode ends up being helpful enough.

The Grand Architect + Pili-Pala has got the same drawbacks of the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank, with the addition that you also need some cards you could use all that mana with.

I added an entry for Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank in the primer. Thanks again for bringing that up!

Profane Memento is pretty good vs creature heavy decks

Bontu's Last Reckoning / Damnation Both are good vs aggro matches

Set Adrift for when someone plays Leyline of Sanctity side note Mesmeric Orb gets around this and can accelerate your delve costs.

Torpor Orb also useful least in my meta vs all the 5c human decks
