Ednawne I haven't had time to test mine lately, but yea my current incarnation has Spreading Seas, Stupefying Touch, Oath of Jace, and I'm trying to find room for Trial of Knowledge too. Along these lines it also has Prophetic Prism and Tsabo's Web.

What is your current take on finishing with Laboratory Maniac?

Here's my current list if you have any input. The Triangle Choke

Just tracking my own progress here.

Not super pleased with the lack of 1 drops, until I get the big zero casting cost mana rocks in here, I need more consistant 1 drops and early plays.


Gilded Lotus

Frozen AEther

Rising Waters

Trial of Knowledge




Pithing Needle

Stupefying Touch

Mentor of the Meek , Council of Advisors , Thraben Inspector for creatures. However you also have Angelic Gift , Cartouche of Knowledge , Spreading Seas and Stupefying Touch .

Alos, Induced Amnesia is good with your commander.

If you don't want to cut Conjurer's Closet , then I would ditch Spine of Ish Sah . White/Blue has enough removal that you really don't need it. And most of the time it's a lot of mana that will just pull a lot of hate.

I would consider Imprisoned in the Moon, but I feel like I've put enough stock into Pacifism -like effects like Stupefying Touch and Pithing Needle while having the likes of Detention Sphere, Reality Acid, Parallax Tide, along with the pirates Rishadan Cutpurse, Rishadan Footpad, and Rishadan Brigand to further that gameplan. In any case, I appreciate your suggestion.

I'm not sure Betrayal is a perfect solution for this deck. It's definitely an anti-combo with Rootwater Matriarch (if you were to steal a creature enchanted with Betrayal it would immediately lose the enchantment and then return to it's owner's control).

Try something like Private Research, Aqueous Form, Stupefying Touch, or Fate Foretold

Maybe stuff like Curse of Exhaustion, Arcane Laboratory, Eidolon of Rhetoric, or Rule of Law. Derevi's ability jumps around the global effects nicely. Erayo, Soratami Ascendant and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets might work as well. Should frustrate the Maelstrom player a little bit when they can't cast the spells off of the double cascade.

Assuming the Niv-Mizzet is built as a combo, give it shroud with stuff like Alexi's Cloak, Aspect of Mongoose, Diplomatic Immunity, Favorable Destiny, Mystic Veil, or Robe of Mirrors. (Hexproof might be better actually.) Alternatively, lock-out it's activated ability or give yourself hexproof with Abeyance,Aegis of the Gods, Arrest, Azorius Guildmage, Bind, Detainment Spell, Encrust, Faith's Fetters, Gelid Shackles, Ice Cage, Interdict, Ivory Mask, Katabatic Winds, Krasis Incubation, Leyline of Sanctity, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Lost in Thought, Orbs of Warding, Peace Talks, Phyrexian Revoker, Pithing Needle, Serra Bestiary, Squelch, Stifle, Stupefying Touch, Suppression Bonds, Trickbind, Voidstone Gargoyle, or Volrath's Curse. I feel like throwing a Pemmin's Aura on it could lead to some interesting politics.

Obviously some of these cards are better than others, but that's everything I've got.
