Temporal Manipulation Discussion

Masonifer on Edric Spymaster of Trest

Have you considered Nexus of Fate , Expropriate , Temporal Manipulation , Temporal Trespass , especially Savor the Moment , Karn's Temporal Sundering , especially Seedtime , and most importantly Time Stretch ?

They are great extra turn cards.

ManaLocked on Pir and Toothy Superfriends

Hello! Sorry that it has taken me awhile to answer! Ralsek I did consider Inexorable Tide once you suggested it, but found that unless I were to turn this into more of a combo/spell slinger deck that I would not get enough value out of it. It is also one of those cards with great value the turn after you play it (assuming you didn't have mana to cast anything else), which is slightly less good when one of this deck's main bottlenecks is mana.

beardumbra Salutations twin! I'm glad to see a fellow player interested in this interesting commander combo! I will admit that I've been using your list as a sample to playtest against as I slowly work in more additions to the deck. I can see how fun it is, and it has influenced some of the decisions in my deck. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Karn Liberated are still having trouble finding their way into the deck, but I will find a slot for them in good time haha. I'm also considering Ugin, the Spirit Dragon for the control aspect it can provide. You can see that some clone effects have found their way in, which has been a very fun way to draw cards in the deck (now if I only had the mana to cast them all). Once I can solve the low mana issue, I will definitely find a slot for. One of the strengths of this deck is the taking of extra turns (since walkers don't require mana after they're on the field), so I have to consider things like Walk the Aeons , Temporal Manipulation , Temporal Trespass , and Expropriate .

Annexus on Merieke, Goddess of Theft

Hey there!

I've been drawing up my own version of MRB and I do love your list, especially since it's one of the more up to date lists in existence on this website.

I've been thinking of adding some extra turns effects, namely Temporal Manipulation , Capture of Jingzhou and I think Time Warp . How do you feel about that idea? The reason I'm taking these cards, is because of the extra shenennigans you can do with the taken creatures, it's a way to take big guys, remove summoning sickness and hit or to generate even more value from previously created value. The spells don't exile, which is also a plus.

greyninja on Your Most Complex/Expensive InfiCombos/Game-Ending Synergies

3 weeks ago

People will likely come up with more complex; but here's some high cmc

Well known, but at 15 mana is Aurelia, the Warleader + Helm of the Host . Usually you'll cast , then whatever turns later for a surprise win. Godo, Bandit Warlord is more efficient at

Biovisionary + Spitting Image is what... 20 mana and 2 lands! Progenitor Mimic and Rite of Replication are better(?)

I like Progenitor Mimic + Eternal Witness + Temporal Manipulation . Once e-wit is already in play, you might have pay 11 mana to pull that off in one turn. There's also Archaeomancer and Salvager of Secrets which are less efficient. Deadeye Navigator instead of the mimic is even more mana per turn.


B.A.N.E. on Haven't played in 10 yrs. ...

Capture of Jingzhou , Temporal Manipulation and Time Warp are basically identical cards and could stack a deck to let me consistently draw extra turns.

Those cards cost Mana which is why I was thinking of the ramp feature.

Each turn allows me a chance to get to a Planeswalker abilities sooner, cast more spells, use more combat phases, and set up a win condition faster. Thought Vessel and a draw mechanic might help smooth out the process.

I'm mostly thinking out loud right now as I try to decide if it's plausible and then how to execute on it.

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on A Song of Turns and Dongers (cEDH)

Hey Allergymedsandcats! I'm beginning to build this deck too, and was hoping a more experienced pilot like you could help me? I'm using your budget list for my biggest reference point for my deck however, because my meta is more casual than competitive insofar it doesn't have stax/blood pod/breakfast hulk/doomsday/chainveil/etc etc. (link here if you want).

What is your opinion on an odd card like Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip (and Drift of Phantasms ) to replace the expensive Gaea's Cradle (which I don't have yet)? And since I also don't have Dryad Arbor yet should I still include Crop Rotation just for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Do you think Exploration (which I don't have yet) is good enough to warrant Gaea's Touch ? Also do you think Birds of Paradise or counterspells like Logic Knot / Arcane Denial / Abjure / Swan Song / Heroic Intervention are all suboptimal for my budget constraints? What other budget cards are worth mentioning for Edric?

I was also wondering if I should include Twincast / Mission Briefing / Flood of Recollection / Skullwinder / Beacon of Tomorrows to make up for the lack of warp density (I don't have Capture of Jingzhou / Nexus of Fate / Temporal Manipulation / Time Warp )? Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer <3

IAmTheWraith on Thousand Cuts: Tetsuko EDH | *PRIMER*

3 months ago

For the cuts you suggested: -Jace, Cunning Castaway for Deepfathom Skulker, I could see cutting Thing in the Ice  Flip for Temporal Manipulation, I like cutting Declaration of Naught a lot, even though it shuts a commander out of the game, probably for Sphinx. Thopter Spy Network seems lackluster to me, with your low count of artifact creatures. It should be the last cut imo.

Still really loving the deck, keep up the good work!

Snap157 on Need a new fun/cheap commander ...

Personally I would build Edric, Spymaster of Trest. Sure, you can take it the expensive Temporal Manipulation-esque route, but also just drawing massive amounts of value with your Scryb Sprites and Cloud of Faeries can be a blast.
