I know they are, but not mine ;).... i should put the specific deck list in the post..

but you're right, if i dont get a biggie out asap, is a lot worse...

I will almost certainly be able to cast it off a Snapcaster Mage on turn 5 though if i dont have a biggie, so there's that.

Hmm...that is a small issue. Perhaps, tagging budget, for the meantime to prevent people from the hassle? Otherwise they Will suggest Snapcaster Mage & Dark Confidant. Good luck on the deck.

Why would you want to give your opp seven fresh cards? Timetwister and similar spells are not optimal in control decks. I disagree with ToolmasterOfBrainerd's statement that your gy is not important. If you want to run cards like Snapcaster Mage, Gifts Ungiven, and Yawgmoth's Will, your gy matters a lot. I agree, however, that you should probably add at least one more mana drain if you want to run gifts, fof, yawg, etc. Mana drain is fundamental to prepare a game-winning turn using such expensive spells.

Boseiju is too slow and narrow.

Why not run all moxen? You have lots of spells that use colorless. This also allows you to cut a few lands (boseiju).

What's up with the unusual singletons? 1 gifts? it's unrestricted now. 1 fof? why play fof if gifts win the game? I would definitely cut the following singletons: surgical, bolt, fir/ice, echoing truth, duress, preordain, and mindbreak trap. What's your meta like? Maximize spells that counter what most of your opps are trying to do. If you want to run singletons to deal with a variety of decks, I'd suggest to run something like Cunning Wish and then add singletons to your sideboard. Wish will then give you access to silver-bullets (you turn 1 spell into 5-6 spells and make your deck more consistent).

Where is Treasure Cruise? What about Dig Through Time? The first is an auto-include in every blue deck (run it in place of timetwister, for example).

It is because it's just the two cards you mentioned plus Deadbridge Chant, Volrath's Stronghold, and Scavenging Ooze. So 5 cards will not function properly with Ground Seal out and with Sheoldred, Whispering One most things she would bring back would die right away anyways because they are intended as scavenge targets. It's a card that I play depending on who my opponents are. In my meta, if I play anyone with , , or I'm trying to drop ground seal right away. Yes it's great to prevent the occasional Relic of Progenitus but it's even better to stop their reanimation targets and their Snapcaster Mage or Academy Ruins. Another option if I play it but need to play one of those 5 cards that target my yard I can waste my Abrupt Decay on it. I'll keep testing it for a while and see if it ends up being a dead card or if it really does help out. If I end up removing it I would swap it out for Witchbane Orb.

Let me see... so, the new Triple Delver makes Snapcaster Mage a target for Reprisal while still shockable...

I mean, it's that "dies to removal" argument and all that, but still...

I have a Snapcaster Mage, Polluted Delta, and Ancestral Vision. Could I trade for a Verdant Catacombs and a Misty Rainforest with the difference in cash?

TMBRLZ How is this any good with Snapcaster Mage? It doesnt count itself as in the graveyard when flashbacking, and flashing it exiles it from your graveyard.

Serum Visions is much better, no question..
