Tamiyo's Journal Discussion

ticked-off-squirrel: Thanks for the compliment! I am very proud of how it has turned out. As for the card suggestions, here are my comments.

Hazoret's Monument: Originally I shied away from Hazoret's because early on I only had like 19 creatures or so, and didn't end up casting them that often. Now that I technically have 25 of them, I think it appeals to me a lot more. I am going to get one and test it out.

Outpost Siege: My experience with Outpost Siege is I only ever declared Khans because I was always hurting for draw, but by the time I got to use it it was Turn 5, and I draw an extra card before it gets destroyed, if I even get to that point. I think if Dragons said "each opponent" instead it would be a completely different story, and an autoinclude for me, but unfortunately it's the same reason I don't run Boggart Shenanigans, the damage is just too narrow.

Tamiyo's Journal: Similar problem with this one, in my meta, even though we aren't playing cEDH decks, we are all at a minimum playing 75%, and having something really come online on T6 or so isn't fast enough to be useful, which is why I've leaned more towards the harder hitting draw spells like Commune with Lava, Memory Jar, or Mindmoil if that one works out. I think Tamiyo's is really interesting as an effect, I just think they dropped the ball on Clues and making them too heavily costed.

Thanks for commenting!

this is a beautiful goblin deck. not sure how helpful my suggestion will be but here is what i suggest:

Hazoret's Monument: making ALL your red creatures costing 1 less and able to cycle cards if needed.

Outpost Siege: so when your tokens get sacked they do collateral damage to players.

Tamiyo's Journal while yes a bit high with a CMC of 5, it provides continuous card draw and a tutor.

Alright! So some suggestions in card's I have for you. Although I dont run a human Tribal selesnya deck, My karametra deck is pretty damn good and is my 'dont piss me off or i'll whip this deck out and kick your ass to Uranus' deck. LOL So since humans are REALLY small bodies Dusk // Dawn is a 100% auto include! Knight of the Reliquary is great and since we're in white You'll want to grab a Mistveil Plains and an Emeria, The Sky Ruin and/or Gavony Township it searches for ANY land, can be great if you have a Yavimaya Hollow. Austere Command EVERY white deck should have this, period. It deals with anything and everything! since you don't have a whole lot of instants/sorceries, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is great here, although one mana does not seem like a lot. it makes the difference between a turn 4 Damnation and a turn 5 Damnation which will give you more value from you're creatures. I think Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip would be great here his planeswalker ability basically gives you a permanent creature you want to survive basically anything! Also NO human deck is a human deck without their protector Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Elspeth, Sun's Champion this elspeth is great! for six mana to remove problem creatures is not bad! the other 2 elspeths are also just as good, and even if they die, it's worth the value! And instead of some of your anthem effects on creatures, I've found that anthems on enchantments/artifacts last longer and provide more support Spear of Heliod is phenomenal, it's kinda pillow-forty because you can kill their creature and gives an anthem all for 3 (6 if you use it's ability). its a great investment! Basically you really want to out-value your opponent! Also another good edition would be Homeward Path since you're having issue's with that darn pirate! Also, Tamiyo's Journal is actually REALLY underrated, I suggest you at least try it and you'll see how much work it really does!

I would look into some card draw, since you are running low CMC cards such as Signal Pest, Springleaf Drum, Ornithopter, Memnite, and Mox Opal. That's twenty cards at CMC 1 or lower, plus twenty free lands...Maybe Expose Evil (clues are artifacts, so any investigate cards would work), Pirate's Pillage, Frantic Salvage, or Origin Spellbomb.Serum Tank would run well, as would Tamiyo's Journal or Trading Post.You could also run Nahiri, the Harbinger for a control/search element.

Hey theseax - I think Tamiyo's Journal is a great card but I'm not sure it actually fits in this deck because the only thing you can sac for tutor is Clues specifically and there's no other Clue generation in the deck. It's something I thought about for my other artifact token decks but left it out for the same reason - it's not Treasure or Gold!

what about Tamiyo's Journal for extra artifact sac and tutor

xt3kn1x on Heartless Valuetown

Hey Todd. Still following this deck. I have had moderate success with it, but it is extremely dependant on getting the engine going. Some thoughts... I noticed that most of my games come down to the incidental life loss i am taking from endless fetching. Trying Pulse of Murasa to shore that up. Also I tried a one-of Tamiyo's Journal which has proven to be both a pain if stuck in my opening hand and extremely powerful to dump 3 counters on my trackers and tutor up Ob. Deck still needs tweaks but it is powerful and fun in the right matchups.

I would cut the following: Syncopate, Spell Pierce, Disappearing Act, Divination, Silent Departure, Dispel, Aether Spellbomb and Tamiyo's Journal.

Consider adding some of these: Dissipate, Capsize, Into the Roil/Expel from Orazca, Wizard's Retort, Swan Song, Rite of Replication, Unwind, Myriad Landscape, Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, Disallow, Spell Swindle, Merchant Scroll, Muddle the Mixture, Aphetto Alchemist, Siren Stormtamer, and Gilded Lotus.

Here are the changes I would start with however, swap Syncopate for Disallow. Then Spell Pierce for Swan Song, Disappearing Act for Wizard's Retort, Divination for Dig Through Time or Preordain, swap Silent Departure for Into the Roil, Capsize, or Expel from Orazca, swap Dispel for Muddle the Mixture, Aether Spellbomb for Fellwar Stone or Sky Diamond (More mana rocks will help for what i'm suggesting below if you want to consider that route), and Tamiyo's Journal for Gilded Lotus (As you just don't have enough ways to make clue tokens, and it's kind of slow anyways. Instead focus on making lots of mana, tapping and untapping your creatures to draw lots of cards).

There is also of course Mind Over Matter and I have one myself, it is a very powerful card that pairs well with things like Temple Bell, Psychosis Crawler, even Azami, Lady of Scrolls. But admittedly it is quite expensive of course, I just thought I would make you aware of this card nonetheless. You listed the deck as budget, but I wasn't sure to what degree this means, whether that's no card over $10-$15 or what.

Dramatic Reversal is another one I highly recommend, it could be sweet if you pair this with an Isochron Scepter, and that's why cards like Long-Term Plans, Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor, Fabricate you could more often have these. Then you can either make a ton of mana, or perhaps even infinite if you have a bunch of mana rocks out and or Paradox Engine. You could win then by casting stuff like Blue Sun's Zenith, Stroke of Genius, among other things.

Depending on how much your willing to spend other ideas include: Rhystic Study, Mind Over Matter as previously mentioned, Patron Wizard, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Laboratory Maniac maybe could be good here, Maze of Ith, Riptide Laboratory, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Tolaria West, Path of Ancestry, and Sensei's Divining Top (Just ordered one of these myself in fact last night, it is such a useful card that can be used in a lot of decks imo).

I know I suggested more to include than what I suggested to in turn remove, I can help more with this if you haven't solved it all yourself already once i'm done with exams in 3 days. In the meanwhile I recommend you visit the website edhrec.com wihich might be a lot of help to you if your not already familiar with it!
