MrXilas thanks for the comment

I kinda like running the compass over the sun droplet for a couple reasons. It's land ramp (kinda), useful when I'm not getting attacked, good when I draw it late game and am already low on life.

Sun Droplet is kinda only good in certain situations which is the type of card i want to avoid adding. It's really good on turn 2 before people start laying down creatures then kinda starts getting worse.

I can't really run Maze of Ith because I'm running a self imposed max budget of $50. If I ever let the deck off it's monetary chain the maze is going in for sure.

A few staples I would personally add to the deck: Spell Burst, Tezzeret's Gambit, Reiterate, and Capsize

Also, you could upgrade your x-burn spells with Comet Storm and Fall of the Titans and trade Inferno/Fire Tempest for something likeRolling Earthquake/Earthquake/Fault Line/Molten Disaster ect. (does that same thing but better/more flexible)

If you are looking for stuff to take out I would start with Sun Droplet (seems real slow and super bad at what it does) Bosium Strip (would rather just draw cards instead of taxing myself 3 mana, this deck probably won't be casting more than 1 spell of the strip per turn at best) Lightning Bolt/Lightning Strike/Volt Charge (not a lot of impact in EDH, 3 damage just isn't that much) Searing Flesh (for similar reasons just put in another x-burn spell) Spellbook (you don't seem to be drawing that many cards) Mind's Desire (storm count would be really low most of the time since copying doesn't count towards storm count)

I've been tweaking on this deck for a while now. Want opinions on a couple of cards. Sun Droplet or Thaumatic Compass for protection? Inspiring Statuary or a 2 mana rock, probably Mind Stone? Is Urza's Bauble worth the price tag for the budget part of the deck? Is March of the Machines, Salvaging Station and Aether Spellbomb/Pyrite Spellbomb too cute or should i add the march, and if so what should i take out?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!

The ideal hand is 3 lands and a CMC rock, some soft Pillow card like Curse of Opulence, Duelist's Heritage, or Sun Droplet, a Rattlesnake, a harder Pillow or Rattlesnake to work toward later, and a draw/filtering card. This sets me up to divert attacks away from me, cast Marchesa on turn 3, and then start working through my deck as the early game unfolds. Having removal early is OK as well, especially against really fast decks, but it often works better to let them explode on my opponents and weather the initial storm behind my fortress. Having a wincon is OK, but often you would rather draw these later when your opponents have weakened themselves and had a chance to develop themselves to a point where the wincon can have full effect. Tutors and Fogs are always nice.

For tutoring, I usually hope to hold them until I can grab a wincon or some life saving hard pillow like Solitary Confinement or Teferi's Protection . I will use them early if I am mana screwed to get myself out of it, but that is pretty rare. If I have a good fortress going and my opponents are not building any aggression, I may tutor for my own aggression in the form of Serra Ascendant, Master of Cruelties, or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. I try not to let a table play sit and wait without having to deal with aggression early. It is best to react to the board state than to have a standard plan for your tutors.

As for Wishes, you are right, they are not allowed by the official rules "without prior agreement on their scope from the playgroup." I found the rule amusing, given that Demonic Tutor is allowed. Avoiding the common complaints about abuse can make them a fun card that is no worse than any other tutor. I took my time to address this rule with my playgroup and we agreed on some limits. Somewhere in the archives of this deck I had a pretty thorough discussion of this, and address the changes I would make if Wishes are not acceptable in any specific meta within the writeup. The short story is that Wishes are a meta call, mine during the development of this deck allowed them for use with a specifically constructed sideboard for this use. No cards outside of this sideboard were Wishable. Also, the targets should not really be too mean, just normal cards. I excluded color hate and some of the "unfun" hosers and focused on answers and wincons that would shore up problem areas. Talk to your group, look up previous discussion threads regarding Wishes, and if they are not your group's thing, substitute Burning Wish for any other card that your deck may be weak in. This is a good spot to get as mean as you want against abuses in your meta, like serious graveyard hate or anti-Blue or anti-Green cards. Burning Wish and my Wishboard are much less mean than you could get with that slot.

Sweet. So you'll definitely want a couple extra Relic of Progenitus in the board because grave hate. And also extra Pithing Needles.

It looks like you're on a budget, so if you can't afford Ensnaring Bridges then Silent Arbiter might be a decent replacement in here.

Sun Droplet for Burn/other aggro matchups. Also Flaying Tendrils.

It doesn't seem that good but Negate will help you out in a lot of matchups where you want to stop your opponent from casting Karn, Ugin, Ad Nauseam, Scapeshift, etc.

This is quite beautiful, LeoSushi!


Gamble, Seize the Day, Fork, Reiterate, Breath of Darigaaz, Molten Disaster, Shattering Spree, Bloodfire Colossus, Fault Line maybe?

Since you're pinging yourself quite a bit here, how about a Sun Droplet or Pristine Talisman?

Until next time, cheers!
