huh... earlier one source said it was legal but i checked another one and it said it was illegal. instead i added Grozoth and more 9-cmc cards like The Unspeakable, Clone Legion, Expropriate and Heroes Remembered.

You play green, man!

Leave all this silly fixing with lands to colors that don't know how to ramp and color fix.



Kodama's Reach

Nature's Lore


If you are willing to spend a bit and don't mind to play creature ramp:

Greenweaver Druid

Rattleclaw Mystic

Shaman of Forgotten Ways

Somberwald Sage

Sylvan Caryatid

Also, there are better cheap alternatives to some cards. Jace's Ingenuity -> Urban Evolution Cathartic Reunion -> any blue draw spell

Counterspells are bad in maelstrom. You never want to see them from cascade, its the worst. Or at least play counterspells with some alternative upside. Also, 4 mana counters mostly suck.

Cut Overwhelming Denial Cancel Dispel

Add Mystic Confluence Swan Song Stubborn Denial

Also, some cards are mostly useless

Gaea's Blessing

You know, after The Unspeakable disaster that was Emmara Tandris, I hope they make a new, much better version of her that ensures she doesn't punch an elephant to death...oh wait! She was leaked as a championship promo! Too bad I can't post the image, considering it was leaked. I'll just send you guys to the MTGS post to save myself from being axed from the site.

Why use Reach Through Mists? That card is only worth it when you have Peer Through Depths and Sift Through Sands as well, so that you can free-cast The Unspeakable. Use a more competitive spell, like Opt, which is strictly better.

Peer Through Depths is gonna be better than Opt 9 times out of 10, from what I can tell. Also, maybe a 1-of The Unspeakable

I just use Gatherer's advanced search, like a pleb.

I can tell you right now that the creature you want doesn't exist. There is no blue and/or white creature with flying that can return instants or sorceries from graveyards to their owners' hand when it enters the battlefield.

According to Gatherer, the closest you're going to get is The Unspeakable, Halimar Tidecaller or Bloodwater Entity. None of them are really what you want.

Have you considered Reach Through Mists, Peer Through Depths, Sift Through Sands and The Unspeakable? They seem like they might work.
