Swarm Intelligence Discussion

A few cards you could add would be more cards with cascade like Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, Bloodbraid Elf, and/or Demonic Dread. Some fun interactions you could have would be cards like Possibility Storm, Eye of the Storm, and Swarm Intelligence. And to utilize the most out of storm, use more cards with flashback like Think Twice, Past in Flames, and/or Mizzix's Mastery. Also, cards that "put into play" don't really effect storm, so the synergy isn't necessarily the best. This deck just needs to be focused more if you're wanting to go the storm route.

Hope this was helpful. Let me know if you need any more help.

You should toss in some more counter magic. It kinda sucks to suspend say Swarm Intelligence just to get it countered in 4 turns. Things like Counterspell Dissolve even like Confirm Suspicions will help some with that. I really like Tamiyo's Journal in edh too, tends to get left alone as more threatening things are on the board and you get draw from it.

The answer to what you want to do is "Yes", but let's clear up some details just to make sure we're all on the same page:

A spell or ability only has targets if it specifically says so (sometimes the word "target" is hidden inside the full rules text for a keyword ability, like Equip), and Mind Grind doesn't have targets. That's okay, because Swarm Intelligence doesn't require the spell to be targeted in order to make a copy. It just gives you the option of changing targets if the spell actually has them.

In this example you cast Mind Grind, copy it with Swarm Intelligence, and then both the copy and the original will do what they say and make each of your opponents "grind" for X (a copy of a spell will also copy over any X value chosen while casting it).

Hi there,

I've been playing around Swarm Intelligence on EDH and been wondering that if I cast a Mind Grind, would I be able to copy this same spell and choose 4 oppenents as targets for the copy?

It looks pretty fun but I think it would be better if you went more aggro for example removing Confiscation Coup, Swarm Intelligence, Kefnet's Last Word and other control spells. To put in more things like Rigging Runner and more Dire Fleet Captain.

Love the deck! Just wanted to say though- isn't Swarm Intelligence just straight up better then Cloven Casting?

Swarm Intelligence and primal amulet could work well for this deck.
