Tempest Djinn Discussion
JKRice on Blue tempo
5 days ago
I like the deck. I’ve tried mono blue a lot and I love it. Just a couple of suggestions.
1: even though Tempest Djinn is a good finisher, It doesn’t do anything except finish, and you ha e enough beaters in the deck that it is a bit redundant. I would reccomend switching some out for Vendilion Clique, which is also a wizard for your counterspell
2: if you do want more board presence, I would reccomend Mutavault as a decent option, which is run in most mono blue decks. Also, you can always run Thing in the Ice Flip, which is an amazing finisher and bird wipe in one for less mana than djinn
3: ive never seen sleep in a mono blue deck, but I think it could work. Personally, I would rather put Jace the mind sculptor mainboard in the four drop slot than sleep or even thing in the ice, but in the current meta with humans top-8ing every gp, it’s a viable card
4: a fun card in this deck is Familiar's Ruse, which lets you have multiple etb triggers off of snapcaster or v-clique if you add it

Thanks BioProfDude, I agree, Tempest Djinn really feels good in this deck in my opinion. Keeps my options open and also gives me a win con because if they manage to counter all my mill cards I will still have some high Power flying creatures. Also Mission Briefing is an amazing card which also definitely needs to be in this deck. Thanks for the tips!

Why not Millstone? It's in M19, so it's standard legal. Also, I would go with about 2 extra land and more counter spells. Two additional land to power cards like Mill Stone and Surge Mare. To make room, you can cut back a bit on creatures, then add cards like Essence Scatter and Negate.
I disagree that Tempest Djinn has no place in a mill deck-- you need another way to win. However, I don't think your deck needs more creatures. Rather, I think you can trim Wall of Mist and either (both?) Omenspeaker or Dimir Informant.
Oh, a less expensive (money cost, not mana cost) version of Mission Briefing is Flood of Recollection. It's sorcery speed instead of instant speed, but same mana cost and does the same thing. It also only costs pennies.
Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

Tempest Djinn can curb aggro and be an alt win condition.
Why no Patient Rebuilding?

I've been working on a similar deck so I do have a few ideas. First and foremost Tempest Djinn doesn't belong in a mill deck. As your mono-blue a couple Memorial to Genius can't hurt. Generally Negate and Essence Scatter I'd keep to the sideboard and replace it with a seasoning to taste of your favorite Cancel variant, Syncopate, prison type enchantments,and bounce spells. Speaking of bounce spells I'd look into ones that can target all nonland permanents such as Blink of an Eye first it's always nice to have that option and second this standard is going to have allot of enchantment destruction mainboard in the form of Assassin's Trophy. Mission Briefing is a card to look at setting up your next draw and reusing a spell in your graveyard. You may not be interested but there is a combo involving Drowned Secrets, Naru Meha, Master Wizard, and Release to the Wind. Even without the combo release could be worth looking at if you have a number of ETB effect such as Homarid Explorer or Omenspeaker & Dimir Informant which do decent wall impressions but also help set-up your draws which shouldn't be overlooked.

David_H18: When you put it that way, everything seems a lot clearer. Thanks!

That could work, but Warkite Marauder would be strictly better (and it's only $1 a copy, too, so it wouldn't explode the budget or anything). I've found Daring Saboteur to be really good but you do sometimes have to hold off on attacking with it for a turn or two. Marauder would be a more aggressive choice; I specifically avoided including flyers in this deck so we could still attack through other decks with flyers, but Marauder is kinda ok against those decks as well since it can turn enemy flyers off.
That said, now that we have the full GRN spoilers, I've started coming to the conclusion that this deck may need to be back-burnered for now. Losing Slither Blade and Unsummon is a big deal and we don't have great replacements coming from GRN. As such, switching over to full Flyers is probably just the way to go, as Favorable Winds and Tempest Djinn are amazing payoffs for that deck and you aren't quite so dependent on small tempo plays. Something like:
That's just off the cuff, of course, but a deck like that would probably just play better overall.
