Thada Adel, Acquisitor Discussion

Hey king-saproling - I have Transmogrifying Licid but I'm still wondering it it will be worth the inclusion, but I may finally give it a try. Thanks for suggestions of Aphetto Alchemist and Thada Adel, Acquisitor both are indeed interesting :)

On the offhand - to add cards I first need to remove some, so, does anyone have any suggestions on what to remove from the deck? These few I think didn't play too well so far: Shambling Suit , Treasure Mage (unless I add Caged Sun I have like ONE artifact with CMC 6+), Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep (a bit too pricey with kicker, mediocre without it), Lotus Petal

I appreciate all the thoughts guys.

Cosi's Trickster Thief of Sanity and Thada Adel, Acquisitor would be an interesting beatdown deck alongside Psychogenic Probe . It's definitely a telegraphed play, but either way you're still breaking parity and getting a tutor to topdeck for

I think that Scheming Symmetry and Psychic Surgery has a lot of potential. I found an older janky deck that ran Psychic Surgery with Extirpate and Surgical Extraction . A 1 cost anything tutor could certainly be an enabler for that deck, and it triggers Psychic Surgery

I also think Symmetry has some potential in combo decks. If you can draw the card and use it to combo off, you negate the opponent getting the card by flat out winning.

As far as the price, once people realize the large amount of cards that shuffle or mill an opponent, I bet this card will go up. It also has potential in other formats too, especially Commander. It has a few applications, its a 1 cmc tutor with a drawback that many effects can get around, and it can cause an opponent to shuffle.

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.

Or... (here's one): Insurrection , Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Diluvian Primordial could be a "I play your cards" betrayal theme:

Chhris effects such as Possibility Storm , Nether Void , and Thada Adel, Acquisitor allow for the cards to be cast. Possibility Storm will replace the card, as Mishra searches for the card in library once the enchantment resolves. Nether Void counters the artifact, however Mishra will ge the card back from graveyard. Finally Thada Adel and simialr effects allows me to cast my opponent's spells and then search for same names within my deck.

It's nice to see a Jace Oathbreaker that's not centered around exiling your library. +1

I would recommend Thada Adel, Acquisitor . She's got islandwalk and bonus utility. Also Empress Galina is a spicy way to steal someone's oathbreaker.
