Tamiyo's Journal Discussion

xyr0s on Omen Burn Machine V.1

1 week ago

I luuuurve omen machine. Played it in a janky funny standard deck back in the days (Omen Machine + Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas). But... your deck has several problems:

  • urzatron. Urza lands are hard to assemble, and you need to have one of each in actual play, before they give you more than one, single, colorless mana. 2 of each, and no way of searching them up, is not going to work for you.

  • Firebolt is not modern legal.

  • Omen Machine is worded "players can't draw cards". Nahiri, the Harbinger has the wording "...if you do, DRAW a card". Clue tokens have the wording "...Sacrifice this artifact: DRAW a card". DRAW is not what you want cards to say, that you use with omen machine. Of course, you might have brought in Tamiyo's Journal to use as a tutor. A 5 mana tutor, which has to wait for 3 turns, before it can tutor anything. That's a really bad tutor.

  • you seem to rely on having, and playing, Omen Machine early. You have 2 copies of it. You have 2 possible tutors in 1 and 3 copies, none of which will search for it until turn 6. This is not how you get to play a card early or consistently.

  • consider that you have an Omen Machine in play. The game is now changed into you and your opponent flipping topdecks each turn, and hoping to have the better card. Is Riot Devils really what you want to flip? Or Pitchburn Devils?

  • unless you have a very sure way of getting to discard your cards, Fiery Temper is much worse than Lightning Bolt. I don't see anything other than nahiri to make you discard.

Personally I would consider taking out the expensive artifact Tamiyo's Journal (since improvise can't help you cast it) and put in Diabolic Tutor to grab Mog.

While Evolving Wilds is a strict upgrade from Warped Landscape, it also is unfortunately beyond the scope of this project, which seeks to only use standard legal Innistrad cards.

Tamiyo's Journal is a fantastic card if I need a tutor, but I feel like I don't have any win con cards that could dramatically swing the game if I brought them out turn six. And waiting five turns to lay out a clue generator feels terribly slow.If I could cheat it out on turn two or three, I'd be very pleased though.

Have you considered trying to get the delirium to active?

Maybe add Tamiyo's Journal for artifacts and Evolving Wilds to add more card types to your graveyard.
