Teferi's Puzzle Box Discussion

ShikiTen on Draw-MATIC Effects

4 days ago

I love this deck. It reminds me of the early days of my Nekusar deck (which initially was going to have Lord of Tresserhorn as the commander before Nekusar, the Mindrazer showed up later that year). I am assuming you're on a more budgeted approach as some of the key Nekusar wheels that are more expensive are missing.

As for recommendations, I'll start by saying it might be easier to avoid cards like Psychic Spiral. While overall not a terrible effect, it's only useful if you play 1v1 or just need to finish someone off (which can be done with a massive similar effect). Here are some cuts I would make as well as what might be good replacements at similar or better mana costs:

  1. Psychic Spiral out for Time Reversal. - Effects everybody and still causes major pain from Nekusar.
  2. Laquatus's Creativity out for Wheel and Deal. - Slightly cheaper, hits all opponents, and replaces itself.
  3. Intellectual Offering out for Khorvath's Fury. - Choose everyone to be friend, & Nekusar causes pain. Also replaces itself with the added +1 draw.
  4. Day's Undoing out for Whirlpool Warrior. - Day's Undoing doesn't actually work with Nekusar because it ends the turn (removing all Nekusar's triggers on the stack). As an avid Nekusar player, this saddens me. If you don't like Whirlpool Warrior's enter the battlefield effect, Teferi's Puzzle Box is another great option. {Personally I would try to get both).
  5. Prophetic Prism out for Dimir Signet. - You have the other 2 signets for color fixing, why not get the third?

As for some other good-stuff cards you might want to look at: Magus of the Jar, Magus of the Wheel, Helm of Awakening, & Fellwar Stone are all possibile additions if you don't like some of the other suggestions.

Honestly, I am glad I found this deck because of a card YOU have in here that I need in mine. Kiora's Dismissal is great enchantment hate my deck needs as I regularly face against a G/W token deck with an enchantment sub-theme. Anyway, +1 from me on the deck!

  • Nezahal, Primal Tide is an awesome pick here
  • Swiftfoot Boots probably isn't worth its spot
  • Grab Dream Fracture as one of your counter spells
  • It might be worth it to shell out some $$$ for a big burn like Exsanguinate or hell something red. Just having a 100% reliable way to finish someone might be worth it.
  • Devastation Tide, a man of taste
  • Maybe pickup a card that gets big based on (your/cumulative) graveyard size
  • I would grab a few more lands, having more reliable first three turns is worth having too much land later, you'll be drawing enough to compensate for that.
  • Teferi's Puzzle Box okay m8
  • Some (<$2) cheap dual lands include scry lands, fetch lands, and bounce lands. Better than the no-effect ones.

Icbrgr on Howling Mine + Mind Funeral

@TypicalTimmy I love Sphinx's Tutelage particularly in mono-blue. When Origins came out I ran it with Teferi's Puzzle Box and Psychic Possession... I was fun but got board with the lack of opponent interaction/spamming cantips.... Which is why I am trying to brew with creatures in ... Self Mill with Skaab Ruinator/Laboratory Maniac was also fun but just a touch too gimmicky for my liking.

Psychic Possession with Teferi's Puzzle Box creates insane draw... GG with Underworld Dreams... Jace's Archivist could be great too with Liliana's Caress.

Heliogabale on Edh wheel deck ?

As mentioned by cdkime, the most common deck revolves Nekusar, the Mindrazer's ability, and other permanents with similar effects, like Fevered Visions, Phyrexian Tyranny and Underworld Dreams. Your opponents lose life when they draw a card, so you make sure they do that as much as possible, using wheels like Reforge the Soul and Windfall, wheel-like effects of creatures like Barbed Shocker or Jace's Archivist and of course powerful artefacts like Teferi's Puzzle Box.

Here is my decklist as an example of a deck relying on this mechanic : Drawing Your Last Breath

BlackyMTG on Nekusar, Oprah’s Apprentice!

3 weeks ago

@SynergyBuild I do have Font of Mythos, Temple Bell, Fevered Visions, Spiteful Visions, Dictate of Kruphix, Master of the Feast, Teferi's Puzzle Box, and of course Nekusar. I really like Ghirapur and I do have a copy, but I’m already letting people play with a ludicrous amount of cards and I think letting them play another land per turn would let them spit those cards out faster than I could deal with them, so unfortunately I think that’s a no. Though, I do believe I could use more ramp if you have suggestions on what to cut and which ramp spells to actually add. I appreciate the feedback and the +1!

Heliogabale on It's Beginning to Look a lot like Grixis

Gotta love a nice Nekusar deck!

You have Fate Unraveler in the Maybe, I would move that to the main without hesitation.

I strongly suggest Fevered Visions and Spiteful Visions; both are (0,60$). Another 0,50$ card, Whispering Madness would work well with Whispersilk Cloak.

Creatures that fit your theme include Viseling (0,25$), Master of the Feast (0,75$), Kami of the Crescent Moon (0,75$) and Seizan, Perverter of Truth (4,50$).

You can get Reforge the Soul for about 4$. I made many kills with Teferi's Puzzle Box (7$).

To make space I would take out anything relating to discard and life gain, they look stretched thin across the deck and seem to be diluting the synergy.

All suggestions are from my deck Drawing Your Last Breath, please feel free to look and comment!
