Temple Bell Discussion

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Hugs :)

First of all, Sol Ring. Just, Sol Ring.

Temple Bell is a cheap group card draw artifact that can also be used politically by determining when everyone gets to draw.

Orzhov Advokist is a perfect card for the group hug list; everyone else gets to pump their creatures and amplify their game, and you don't get attacked.

Skyscribing can be forecasted every turn for slow advantage, or cast in one go to refill everyone's hands.

Selvala, Explorer Returned ramps you a little and buffers your life total while drawing everyone cards. Neat effect that adds up over time.

Minds Aglow is another card that draws everyone more cards.

Braids, Conjurer Adept lets everyone power out their best cards from their hand every turn, which has the added benefit of getting your pillow fort enchantments online quicker.

Lastly, Kami of the Crescent Moon is another card that stuffs players' hands with cards.

Chains of Mephistopheles is a not-so-budget card I run in my Nekusar deck.

I also would throw in more wheel effects like Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, Jace's Archivist, Dark Deal, Runehorn Hellkite, Reforge the Soul, Whirlpool Warrior, Chandra Ablaze, Wheel and Deal, Incendiary Command, etc.

Time Spiral and Timetwister are also nice, if you wish to invest more in this deck.

For more damage, you can also try out Gaze of Adamaro, Sudden Impact, and Runeflare Trap

Alongside Spiteful Visions, there's also Phyrexian Tyranny, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Price of Knowledge, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Viseling (in multiplayer, Black Vise for two-way), Iron Maiden, and Fevered Visions.

Some more forced draw you can put in include, but is not limited to: Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Forced Fruition (especially fun in Nekusar EDH), Kami of the Crescent Moon, Master of the Feast, Nin, the Pain Artist, Jace Beleren, Dack Fayden, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Well of Ideas, Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, etc.

Well, I hope that this wall of text I just typed helped to some extent, and good luck with the deck.

Hi, took a look at the deck and I think I see a few swaps:

Rupture Spire->Vivid Crag

Obelisk of Grixis->Commander's Sphere

Fascination->Skyscribing

Some cards to consider adding:

+Fate Unraveler Another, probably easier to cast, Underworld Dreams effect along with a 3/4.

+Geier Reach Sanitarium Another Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, in fact it's better because you also have discard triggers.

+Bojuka Bog Likely someone in your meta has a graveyard based deck, and this is a very low cost way to greatly damage them. Especially since you will be fueling them with all your discard. For that matter, adding Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus could be wise too.

+Liliana's Caress You've got Megrim, might as well use this too.

+Signets

And a few things that might not be pulling their weight here:

-Otherworld Atlas This seems just too slow. Charging it once makes a Temple Bell that etb tapped and costs 4. Charging twice is a really slow Font of Mythos. Charging three times is...three turns of nothing. If there were a heavy proliferation theme, then maybe.

-Laboratory Maniac Are you decking yourself before opponents are dying? If you've gone through 99 cards, or even 80, the opponents should be at -40 life or less. They'll also be damaging each other too. In the unlikely event someone maintains positive life, you'll probably deck them before yourself anyway if they played any of their own card draw. If you still worry about it, Time Reversal and Day's Undoing can replace two of your other wheel effects.

-Omniscience This just isn't the deck for this card. Yes all your Howling Mines can refill you each turn, but pretty much nothing in your deck is card advantage, so you can't drop this and storm through your library or anything like that. At the point you hit 10 mana you can pretty much cast 3 spells + play a land each turn anyway, so Omniscience only has value after you have ten mana, and if you draw more than 1+(mana available/averageCMC) cards per turn. At every other time (so way too often) it's dead.

-Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker Sure he's powerful in a generic way, but he doesn't synergize with the deck, and I think he's next on the chopping block because of his cost.

-Magus of the Jar Having summoning sickness and costing five makes this questionable to me.

-Leyline of Anticipation Another generically powerful card, but you know what else is generically powerful? Signets.

tNag552 Temple Bell runs the risk of giving them an answer but I might throw it back in considering you can just respond by doing it again

Why are you not using Temple Bell? You already run Mind Over Matter and it has given me a fair amount of games. I want to know your opinion if possible!

@Songbird0 It's been a while, hasn't it? Not too much has changed, but I'll go through them :D

Island -> Crumbling Vestige The cost wasn't too high for this, and it could potentially allow for another combo outlet, so this was an easy include.

Horn of Greed -> Temple Bell I have better control of when the card draw happens, and I think it is psychologically beneficial for me to be the one causing the card draw (if you want I can take more time to explain my thoughts on this). Either way, it also fits the Kamigawa theme better, so I made the trade.

Crucible of Worlds -> Didn't make the cut. I tested this out, and I felt that this isn't the deck for this card. Even with 6 supporting cards (2 fetch lands, my 2 lands that require untapped lands to be sacrificed, Buried Ruin, Trade Routes), there obviously is no guarantee that it will be paired with enough value, especially since my tutors will be looking for some kind of combo win instead. Usually when I drew this, I wanted the card I traded out for it (Expropriate) instead, so I traded it back.

Hinder -> Cloudstone Curio. Hinder was my weakest counterspell, and was an artifact from when tucking a commander was able to be done. I was already thinking of taking it out, and I needed space for this card anyway, so I made this substitution.

Nice to see a mill list!

If you are ok with Temple Bell affects, there is Font of Mythos and Otherworld Atlas. Forced Fruition is also amazing for doing this.

Prosperity and Skyscribing are also spell versions.

Spellbook and Library of Leng are extra versions of Graceful Adept too.

Inundate and Curse of the Swine are also more removal options.

A know a friend with a three colour Nekusar draw deck that just might give you some inspiration.

Happy deck milling!
