Teferi, Time Raveler Discussion

moremanawins on Golos the Spellcaster

You should add Gauntlets of Light . It goes infinite with Faeburrow Elder as long as it taps for at least 4. At which point you can cast your entire deck using Golos, then win with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . One idea is to run board wipes like Time Wipe and Realm-Cloaked Giant to clear the board after someone has committed to it. Jaya's Greeting , Murder , and Lava Coil can also help to remove annoying creatures early on. Flame Sweep is also a low cost mini wrath that can buy you time. I'd like to see more card draw, consider Growth Spiral , Opt , and Chemister's Insight . Finally my favorite card in my azorious control deck Teferi, Time Raveler , can help deal with control players and bounce troublesome creatures, artifacts, and enchantments while drawing you a card. The +1 is also good cause it gives your sorceries flash essentially.

Spell Queller with Teferi, Time Raveler out is not answered well with abrupt decay as it ends up being a 1 for 2. Also Rhonas is really nice because he can help maintain board presence after a board wipe and can help push damage through with the activated ability that gives trample.

Hi Argy, thank you-- Ixalan's Binding is a great suggestion! I also like Search for Azcanta  Flip, but not in place of Smuggler's Copter . The copter just does soooooooo much work for this deck. The looting is pretty amazing.

Always Watching was a card that I immediately wanted to put into the deck. However, to do that, I think, would mean relinquishing some or all of the planeswalkers and fully committing to the creature plan. Maybe that's what I actually need to do, but Teferi, Time Raveler and Gideon Blackblade have just been really good in the scant play testing that I have been able to do. I shall ponder more and we'll see where it goes.

So far, I haven't had any mana problems. More play will determine whether more lands are needed. For now, I'm staying at 21. If larger play-test sample size reveals that I need more land, I will definitely add more.

Thank you so very much for the suggestion!

Geo67 Sorry for the late response. Depending on how many Gideon's you are lacking, I would recommend maxing on Avacyn or adding Gideon Blackblade , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Supreme Will , Dovin, Grand Arbiter .

Grumplstiltskin Thanks for the question! There are a couple of cards that are good against this deck. One card would be Teferi, Time Raveler since it forces the deck to play sorcery speed. Thoughtseize and Fatal Push is pretty good as well. The deck has a really bad matchup with Izzet Phoenix. A deck that cast a lot of 1-2 cmc spells is gonna out tempo the deck since it plays so many low cmc cards and has evasive threats.

Zavthedav23w Wow, thanks for that monster of an answer! I like that you already tried different approaches of Shadow. I'm definitely adding more Mishra's Bauble and Once Upon a Time as soon as I get my hands on some. Snapcaster Mage seems like a must, so will add that most likely 2 times as well. Wrenn and Six was an option I once thought about - but simply forgot about it (which is hard because it's so powerful). So I will see if I can get a copy to playtest it. Swapping Serum Visions for Thought Scour also seems to be worth it, especially when I play Mishra's Bauble 4 times so I am not that dependent on Serum's Scry mechanic. Liliana of the Veil will go to the sideboard when I get to test the new additions. You're right, she seems to be a better sideboard card. Kolaghan's Command will go as well, even though I think I'm gonna miss it :( But hey, it doesn't have to be forever.

Grixis seems interesting, I have to look up some lists and see how it works exactly. Esper had some cool ideas I wanted to play around with (namely Ranger-Captain of Eos , Teferi, Time Raveler , Path to Exile ), but the more I look at it, the slower it seems, especially regarding Ranger-Captain of Eos with the 2w in his cost. Well, I will look into some Grixis lists, buy some cards and then I will update here! Maybe I will participate in something like FNM (for the first time in my life) next week or the week after, to just playtest against some strangers. Another huge thank you for your insights, ideas and tips!

Hi there.

As a midrange player I generally loathe control and probably shouldn't makes things worse for myself, but I think I have a few ideas for improvements:

  • Take out all 3x Reflector Mage . Control decks generally want as few creatures as possible, both because they don't need them, but also because opp's removal will be dead draws. Instead... Hurts me to say it... But just play more Teferi, Time Raveler and probably Teferi, Hero of Dominaria too.
  • Supreme Verdict is your numero uno vs. creature strategies, so playing the full 4 (or 3 main, 1 side) is very rarely going to be a downside. It's a great card in this format.
  • Going up a land and adding in some number of Field of the Dead seems like a great way to add inevitability and resilience. If you feel like your mana base isn't good enough for it, I'd try and Steal some pointers from the other top U/W Control decks, that are floating around. Most of them play Field.
  • Dig Through Time and Search for Azcanta  Flip seems like a bit of a non-bo, but I guess you can usually wait with Dig until you flip Azcanta. Anyways, Dig or another Fae of Wishes seems better than Chemister's Insight .

Good luck :)

I think the mana could use some work but thanks. I've seen some just WG builds that can more or less be a stompy deck if they don't draw Dubious Challenge . Maybe splashing blue isn't amazing but Teferi, Time Raveler seems great to make challenge uncounterable and oko just lets us be an okay midrange deck if we don't draw it.

Casual Pioneer Tournament Result 2-2

Match 1 4C Super-friends - Result 2-1 Round 1 was long and painful as he proceeded to play and ultimate 2 Teferi, Hero of Dominaria in addition to 3 Teferi, Time Raveler , 2 Narset, Parter of Veils and an Oko, Thief of Crowns . Round 2 went much better with Noxious Grasp removing the first 2 planeswalkers and finishing off the match with some hasty gearhulks. Round 3 was a wash as he was unable to fix his colours.

Match 2 Versed Izzet Phoenix - Result 2-1 Lost Game 1 to 3 instances of Treasure Cruise which just overwhelmed me with card advantage. Round 2 went much better with Leyline of the Void proving backbreaking for the cheap phoenix plan. Game 3 was very close as I was lucky to have to correct removal for the threats presented. E.g. Declaration in Stone and Cut / Ribbons to remove his Thing in the Ice  Flip before it was able to flip. Combustible Gearhulk was a standout hitting the opponent for 17 damage with an amazing blind flip.

Match 3 Gideon Tribal - Result 0-2 This was short and painful as I was unable to really interact with the deck apart from Cataclysmic Gearhulk forcing him to sacrifice an excess Gideon. Abrade was helpful against Heart of Kiran but without one in hand I was just dead.

Match 4 Mardu Vehicles - Result 0-2 This match-up has a very similar problem to the previous game where I was unable to interact with my opponents vehicles Heart of Kiran + Smuggler's Copter , Planeswalkers Gideon, Ally of Zendikar + Liliana, the Last Hope which get around the sorcery speed of most of my removal or even his creatures with Hazoret the Fervent being indestructible.

I may need to switch up my removal package with more versatile spells such as Dreadbore to deal with planeswalkers or Bedevil to deal with artifacts as well.
