Has anyone experimented with Shadowstorm Vizier? I'm trying to brew it, but there doesn't seem to be enough playable cards with cycle at common.

I'm planning to build Chromium too, and I've been looking at the cards from Amonkhet that do things "whenever you cycle or discard a card," like Archfiend of Ifnir, Curator of Mysteries, Drake Haven, and Shadowstorm Vizier. (There are otherse too, but imo these are the best ones) That way you can capitalize off of every discard.

Lol it will be my pleasure, friend.

So Kess says only during your turns, and also an instant/sorcery. Automatically, that means I wanna move away from tons counterspells and more towards a value-based shell. Instants are still fine, since sometimes you'll need to respond, but you won't be able to flash back a counterspell very often, probably. Looks like you've already anticipated that, though, with some solid top-end value.

I'd prioritize focusing on a) your low-curve, and b) your threats.

For goal a) look at Ponder, Preordain, Anticipate, Minds Aglow, Diabolic Tutor, etc. Maybe some limited non-basic LD like Molten Rain (but not too much bc ppl will h8 u). Mass discard like Delirium Skeins will hurt your opponent more than you, probably. Artifact hate like Shatterstorm or Shattering Spree or Vandalblast will kill opponents' mana rocks. Graveyard hate like Learn from the Past and Commit / Memory. In general, you wanna pick spells that will help you survive into the late game, when Kess will shine. Card draw, cycling, and scry will help smooth your mana, too, and keep your hand/graveyard full of value. Oh, and stuff like Goblin Electromancer, Jace's Sanctum, Arcane Melee, and Curious Homunculus  Flip will be good.

Goal b) is up to you. Wanna cast Leviathans like Shipbreaker Kraken or Stormtide Leviathan? Wanna put in tons of cycling-themed finishers like Archfiend of Ifnir, Shadowstorm Vizier, and Drake Haven? Or just go straight value with Melek, Izzet Paragon and Talrand, Sky Summoner? Personally, I'd try to pick a neat theme, since Kess is fairly value-oriented by herself. I would be afraid of making it a "goodstuff" build, because those get boring to me after a couple of rounds.

Great start! Best of luck.

Hm... Good question. I guess the answer is just... I didn't thought of it. But now that you mention it, it would be pretty great to cycle something precombat, or even in the opponent end step, and then regrow it before combat with God-Pharaoh's Gift !

I guess I would also run the Gate to the Afterlife, but what I wonder now is what to cut. I'd probably say the Commit / Memory, the two Hieroglyphic Illumination and one Shadowstorm Vizier. And cut those cards for each of the two artifacts, I guess?

Anyhow, thanks for the comment/suggestion Athraithe!

Where is your New Perspectives??? It makes Shadowstorm Vizier and Archfiend of Ifnir so broken! Also, completely pays for Hollow One, especially with Abandoned Sarcophagus in play, you can cycle a Hollow One for free, draw a card, and cast him for two less. Value! I also recommend taking out Razaketh's Rite. It doesn't do enough, especially for 3BB.

Nice of you to add Shadowstorm Vizier to your prized primer! Overall nice work, keep it up!

Thanks for the suggestions happygilmore511. The reason why I don't have Glimpse the Unthinkable is because it costs almost as much as my entire deck. As a general rule, I don't like to spend more than $7-$10 for any one card in the deck. I will definitely need to pick up 4 of the Mind Funeral. I will get rid of Shadowstorm Vizier. Like I said in my description, this deck needs a lot of help. Your suggestions have started me in the right direction. Thanks!
