Tamiyo's Journal Discussion

@ShwangVery nice suggestions, i will definitely take those into Account :-)

I didnt put in more Reverse Engineer, since i get lots of clues, and the idea was that i won't draw it that early or even fetch it with Tamiyo's Journal But it makes sense to draw some more cards, yes :-)

Why no Thornbite Staff ? It turns Diaochan into a (potentionally) one-sided sweeper every turn!

I also dislike Wild Guess and Faithless Looting, since they are essentially card disadvantage, with red already having hardly any card draw.

Also, you might wanna consider Tamiyo's Journal. It produces fodder for Goblin Welder, draws cards or tutors for anything every 3rd turn(usually won't tho).

As you know I am also currently building a Diaochan Deck, trying to run less creatures than you and beeing a little more agressive. Far from done with it though.

I thought about an Inspiring Statuary + Paradox Engine Combo. Casting the cards I grab for 1-2 mana, then untapping Tamiyo's Journal and grabbing another card. Mechanized Production Isn't what I want the deck to be. It feels too cheesy/easy in the casual setting I normally play in.

iunno if yr interested in this idea, but i splashed blue into a clue deck i built for a couple reasons:

also, i'd totally add one or two Tamiyo's Journal bc, well, fuck, it's amazing in this deck lol. & it's only like a $.50 card

hope this helps!!

I would suggest Erdwal Illuminator and maybe Tamiyo's Journal

I... agree re. Panharmonicon in this deck, although consider side-boarding it for multiplayer games (the "equal opportunity" mill of the altar becomes much more powerful relative to targetted milling). I still think Investigate is worth a shot, possibly replacing Jace's Erasure and Hedron Crab with Fleeting Memories and Tamiyo's Journal/Erdwal Illuminator or some Investigate Instants and Sorceries. As you're testing it might be worth playing with this kind of config. I'd be interested to know if it works.

Fleeting Memories is a way to riff off clue tokens for mill, but you would need other ways to Investigate (Tamiyo's Journal for example) which would take up space in the deck otherwise used for pure mill.
