Take Inventory Discussion

Think Twice, Remand (instead of some of your other counterspells), Gifts Ungiven (Maybe), Thought Scour, Take Inventory, and Pieces of the Puzzle.

This deck could be so much better is it was U/R.

And yeah, I probably underrestamated Echoing Truth, it's not that it's good, it's that it's important to have some "removal". You could probably change Reality Shift to Dismember though.

Thought Scour is probably better than Opt, here.

Also: If you're going casual format, anyway, Accumulated Knowledge is a strict upgrade to Take Inventory.

Weird idea here but what if you added Harness the Storm for a backup Pyromancer Ascension and add cards like Flame Burst/Kindle/Take Inventory which works on how many are in your yard? That way you get double spells that have bigger outcomes. That works right?

No Oust? I'd use as much 1 mana removal as I could without flooding the deck in uw control. On another note AEtherling feels slow, mind dropping them to up the Wall of Omens count to 4.

As incremental value is good for control Take Inventory seems good enough to warrant some testing. Not an instant, but still not bad at all.

Omnath, Manafluxed

Legendary Creature - Elemental


Filter - Whenever Omnath, Manafluxed deals combat damage to an opponent you may prevent X of that damage. If you do, you may reveal the top X cards of your library and put a card with converted mana cost X or less into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.


So the idea of "Filter" is that you exchange damage for cards. In Green, what this can do is you can trade off 4 or 5 damage now so you can "topdeck" things like Titanic Growth, Mutagenic Growth, or Groundswell later. Alternatively, you can trade out all 8 damage and retrieve something colossus, like Eldrazi Conscription.

Since "Filter Decks" would be pretty straightforward (Most likely green / blue decks; Possible red with drawbacks) I have a new challenge for you guys. Best explained if I represent it in a card, so here's the next challenge.

Potent Alteration

Sorcery - Alteration (Yes, this Sorcery has a Subtype)

Alteration - When you cast this spell, put X modes onto the stack where X is the number of cards that share this name in your graveyard.

Tap target creature. It doesn't untap during it's controller's untap step if able.

  1. Return target tapped creature to it's owner's hand.
  2. Target opponent reveals all creatures from their hand and puts them on top of their library in a random order.
  3. Target opponent puts the top five cards of their library into their graveyard.

So the idea is quite similar to cards like Take Inventory, except the more copies that are in your graveyard, the more powerful this particular one on the stack is.

So the challenge? Finish the Alteration cycle.

Unyielding dominance

Legendary sorcery

During your upkeep you may pay and reveal x copies of unyielding dominance for each revealed this way destroy x creatures their control can search for a basic land.

Destroy all non legendary perms. When you cast unyielding dominance you may exile a copy of it from your grave if you do search your deck for a copy of unyielding dominance.

Make a card that works better the more copies are in the grave like Take Inventory but do a creature

this is kinda the modern non troll version of this deck. though obviously somewhat different in that it plays through the breach... but has a similar game plan.

you aren't playing serum visions... that card is a format staple for a reason, get rid of those garbage Take Inventory because you and i know they are so so so bad.

If you own any more on color fetches (flooded strand, scalding tarn, wooded foothills, etc.) i would recommend cutting a few sources of mana just because you don't want to get flooded, and you only ever need 6 mana at most if things are going horribly bad.
