Snapcaster Mage

Snapcaster Mage

Creature — Human Wizard


When Snapcaster Mage enters the battlefield, target instant or sorcery card in your graveyard gains flashback until end of turn. The flashback cost is equal to its mana cost. (You may cast that card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

Swell deck. As for recommendations, Venser, the Sojourner has synergy with your commander, creates massive shenanigans with Gilded Drake, and allows us to reuse Snapcaster Mage and Spellseeker in the absence of taiga. If we include it we should consider Restoration Angel or Felidar Guardian for added utility. If we include both, we might add Altar of the Brood for an infinite mill combo. :)))

I mean, this loses hard to most lists of the format, so it's not the best, but I always love Swans builds, this is a reasonable one of them. Honestly still think as a Yorion pile these decks could put in work, but not entirely sure on application of it. Snapcaster Mage Style Yorion build for sure could make it still function and have enough lands to combo, but also could loop value cards like Mystic Sanctuary with enough fetchlands. Triomes too, maybe a Field of the Dead line, not sure exactly.

@Massacar Thank you for the suggestions. I will check out Conjurer's Closet at some point as having some redundancy with Thasa would be nice. I am definitely torn with the idea of adding in Isochron Scepter I like the flexibility of imprinting Ghostly Flicker and Mana Drain but I would be compelled to add Dramatic Reversal. I am not a fan of Elixir of Immortality, I would probably add something like Reminisce that can get flashbacked or returned to my hand with either Archaeomancer or Snapcaster Mage.

I probably will find a slot for Isochron soon.

Honestly, I’d swap Growth Spiral for Risen Reef. It is true that you don’t have many elementals, but just your commander being an elemental makes it worth it.

Steel Hellkite is a good card in mono color decks that have trouble removing certain permanent types. Like enchantments for red, black, and blue. But your color combo is the best for removing anything that’s a problem.

Expedition Map usually isn’t worth running unless you have utility lands or super powerful lands. It doesn’t really ramp, which is what holds it back.

Frost Lynx doesn’t really impact the board much. Especially since some of the greatest threats don’t need to attack or tap to be a pain.

Narset, Parter of Veils, Snapcaster Mage, Ponder, Preordain, Gitaxian Probe seem like cards that fit a spellslinger deck rather than a good stuff value deck. I don’t know if you’re trying to do that with your deck or not. Just be careful to not do so many different things with your deck that it ends up doing none of them well.

As in that other deck, I’ll point out the lack of Snapcaster Mage, but again I’m assuming it’s because of budget.

Is Forked Bolt working well for you? I usually see Electrolyze instead for the cantrip

No Snapcaster Mage makes me sad...I’m guessing he’s not in because of budget...?

Hey there pal,

as an MtG Judge Lvl 8 and 2nd place winner of the MtG Pro Series 2016 I am always on the watch for new players with high potential. Thus, I was extremely excited when I discovered you and your decks. You're truly showing a high level of commitment and an absurd amount of card research in your decks. However, there are some cards that would fit nicely in here that you might want to include. All of those cards are easily affordable, provided that you have no problems with simply stealing them from other players. Those cards are: Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Mana Crypt, Force of Will, Mana Drain, Timetwister, Mox Diamond, Snapcaster Mage. I am convinced that including them would significantly improve your deck. Hit me up if you need further suggestions, as I am always eager to help players with high potential.

Best regards, Danny Nolan

Big fan of GDS, though I've never played the deck. How have you found 3 Snapcaster Mages to be? I have noticed that a lot of lists are playing 2 now. It seems like they might be too clunky, who would've thought. Also think that playing a 4th Mishra's Bauble is favorable to Serum Visions. The more you play cards at sorcery speed the more you get run over. That being said, I love The Royal Scions and I'm not an expert at the deck, so it could be fine. Interested to know how Liliana of the Veil is in the sb.
