Tamiyo, Collector of Tales Discussion

Eclipse28420 on Under the waves: simic prison

why am I like this. my apologies on the Trophy Mage suggestion vs Ensnaring Bridge , they kind of clash. with 24 creatures anyways, you could Fabricate which could also let you get Power Conduit at sorc speed as well. i'm also building simic atm but its WAY different (I like combat so I use swords). for your planeswalker spot Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales both work there. moon sage lets yo psudo Ajani Vengeant and Collector of Tales lets you dig all while fighting hand disruption which is weak in modern atm. after a tutor she can save you from that Thoughtseize . When I was building Sultai Eternal Command I would include this package in my board: Gifts Ungiven Life from the Loam Ghost Quarter and something to just get the 50% much like Field of Ruin , Eternal Witness , Snapcaster Mage , Noxious Revival any of that because the u/g retrace cards don't do much in a build like this but i enjoy a good softlock :D

Viserixn, I have made several changes according to what i see other people playing on tournaments at my local venue. The way I play is the following:

If most of the decks my opponents play are control/slow decks, I play the blue/black list here described. The only thing I'm doing differently is that I now play one or two copies of Finale of Revelation as a last resource in case you mill your entire library and CANT find Jace.

If most of the decks my opponents play are aggro, I play a blue/green variation of this very same deck. The blue/green incorporates cards such as Tamiyo, Collector of Tales and World Shaper for raw value, and Bond of Flourishing , Planewide Celebration and Root Snare to survive against aggro.

I will post the exact list on another deck entry so you can copy it! So far i've only lost against Esper Midrange twice and Grixis Superfriends once with the blue/green deck. It's great !!

I'd recommend cutting Tamiyo, Collector of Tales , as her +1 does very little in EDH, and Verdant Haven , as there are a lot better enchantment ramp options out there. Going further, I'd say that Weirding Wood is probably better than New Horizons as well. I'm also not a fan of Dark Depths or manlands in EDH, and would recommend replacing them with other lands. My first recommendation for replacement lands would be painlands such as Yavimaya Coast .

Birdman191, Induced Amnesia is not very effective in this deck since your hand will most likely not have a lot of cards during most of the game. Also, although Homarid Explorer is good, Wall of Lost Thoughts and Stitcher's Supplier serve the same purpose for less mana.

On going blue/green, I am currently experimenting with a blue/green version of the deck that includes Tamiyo, Collector of Tales , World Shaper , and Planewide Celebration . I will most likely post that list next week

Ever though about Induced Amnesia or Homarid Explorer ? What about switching to blue/green for Tamiyo, Collector of Tales

I don't know why, but I had a sudden thought about this interaction again and I realized there was a defect in my earlier thinking.

Tamiyo, Collector of Tales would only stop you from discarding (forcing you to mill instead of draw) if the effect trying to make you draw extra cards is controlled by an opponent. Chains of Mephistopheles doesn't do anything directly, but rather changes the result of other effects. For example: if you target yourself with Inspiration in this situation then you discard-draw, discard-draw. Tamiyo doesn't interfere because it's your own spell that's causing you to discard cards. If someone else cast Inspiration targeting you then Tamiyo would stop you from discarding and you'd be forced to mill 2 cards.
