Temporal Extortion Discussion

You get a +1 from me just for the concept/strategy but most importantly using pet cards of mine like Temporal Extortion and Heartless Summoning and using them well. This is an interesting deck. Suggestions:
Cut Faithless Looting. Add Past in Flames
Cut Infernal Contract. Add Wheel of Fortune
If Living Death is the true engine of the deck and you run a lot of reanimation support it might be worth running Demonic Collusion. Fills the yard while getting whatever you need.
Gamble is always good but the random discard can be utilized in this strategy.

Temporal Extortion looks good on paper, but I've never had much luck in getting the extra turn.
Yawgmoth is also disgusting for getting Bloodchief Ascension active in a hurry, I would run this in a heartbeat.
Ichor Rats is good because it gives everyone a counter, but I wouldn't run Tainted Strike unless you were going for a dedicated infect build - this spot would be better used for either another targeted kill spell or another board wipe.

Definitely add: Skullclamp (one of the best cards in the deck), Dusk Legion Zealot low impact, but you generally want to get a bunch of creatures out early, Viscera Seer super strong and again, this is a deck where you really want to start out strong, Painful Truths (the best draw spell in Mardu), Indulgent Aristocrat (super strong way to aggro people out while also getting a board presence early), Yahenni, Undying Partisan this just doesn't ever die and gets very big
I'd recommend: Nihil Spellbomb (I think this is almost always a mustplay in black.)

Hmmm... This does seem like a very underrated Mono- CMDR. Well, you do have one budget cap indeed. seshiro_of_the_orochi already mentioned some amazing stuff (Though I'd rather use Chasm Skulker for one of those cards anyway. Everytime you even draw, Skulker just gets more +1/+1 Counters until it dies; in which can potentially lead to a more horrifying result from killing a "Kaiju Squid" that, based on how you have so much Draw Support, having a Bajillion tokens as punishment from killing Chasm Skulker , I'd like to find some cuts, but what you have right now? It's very hard for me to decide what is inferior...
But I do hope this might help later on... But I'd like to suggest one more card in spite of my inability to help w/ what cuts to throw in: Narset's Reversal . You already have some great stuff in there. Day's Undoing , Time Reversal , maybe even Commit / Memory could apply; this Copy Spell is infamous. Being able to copy a Timetwister -like effect so only the copy's effect resolves (I think?), thus shuffling even your Budget Timetwister -Effects, & Narset's Reversal . Not too expensive, & only to cast. I hope this might be of some help, I've no suggestions for cuts sadly; I am just starting helping out others sadly... But I wish I had a big combo for you, but it's out of your colors; & Budget potentially even if in-color: = Temporal Extortion . That said, Hope this helps! :D

Actually, if you copy Temporal Extortion , your opponent does not get the chance to counter it by paying half their life. Temporal Extortion's "pay life to counter" clause is a cast trigger, and since the copies are not (usually) cast, that trigger will not be added to the stack on top of them.
Fun fact, if you've got a Swarm Intelligence and a Narset's Reversal , this allows you to take infinite turns with TE (or with any other extra turn spell. Cast TE, copy it. Cast Narset's Reversal targeting it, then have the copy of Narset's reversal target the original Reversal. Copy resolves, bouncing original Reversal to hand, and copying it - new copy targets original TE, which is bounced to hand and copied. You end up losing no cards, and taking two extra turns, during which you can repeat the cycle.

Upon looking a second time, you can do something similar.
- Cast Temporal Extortion
- Inform players you would like to hold priority
- Cast Narset's Reversal , targeting TE
- your physical copy of TE is returned to your hand, and a copy of it is put onto the stack
- Now you either get an extra turn, or someone loses 1/2 of their life while TE sits in your hand
And this works with any spell that copies, such as Twincast , Reverberate , the Expansion half of Expansion//Explosion, Dual Casting , or my personal favorite Howl of the Horde . While none of these return the spell, you do get to copy it. But you need to be clear you are holding priority so someone doesn't pay 1/2 life before you finish your setup.

I have been working on an extra turns / proliferate EDH deck that uses Temporal Extortion and Narset's Reversal . I'm trying to make sure I understand that stack and be certain that I would resolve this correctly.
Temporal Extortion is cast
Opponent pays the life to counter the spell
Upon resolution Temporal Extortion returns to my hand and one of my opponents is now half his life lighter.
Is this correct?
