Thought-Knot Seer Discussion

I see what you mean. However, should i replace the whole eldrazi or should i just remove 1 or 2 Thought-Knot Seer? Or do i just add additional sources of colourless?
Yes, you are right. The 2nd Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is just an insurance for eventual discard/removal/draw from hand etc. 9 out of 10 times i would just use chord on it.

Well the thing is I hardly cast any red mana in this deck. The dual reds are just there just in case i would need to summon Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.
And the plan is usually to fetch some dual with reds on it. Usually Stomping Ground to cast my mana dorks.
However,most of the time, I would just tutor it with chord of calling through tapping some creature + mana.
However, If i opt for Flickerwisp, I would rather go for the saheeli combo.

@Whiskerbro Not so odd when you consider that there are only three Eldrazi in the deck and they're never going to be as fast as Cloudposts or Tron lands are. Eldrazi Temple is better in a lower-curve more Eldrazi-tribal-esque deck with Thought-Knot Seer, Reality Smasher, Endless One, etc.

I don't think you understans how grateful I am for your thoughts. Have been posting on reddit, talking to friends and haven't really gotten the input you just gave.
I think your are on spot regarding the Glorybringer. I playtested the deck yesterday and came to about the same conclusion as you though I didn't see it as clearly. My friends Thought-Knot Seer and Walking Ballista loomed over me while I was sitting on a uncastable Mandrill and a useless Commune.
My thought after playtesting was that I needed creatures that do impact by themselves as well as being able to be sacrificed. Like Kitchen Finks.
My thought on Siege Rhino was purely anti-aggro but in hindsight Thragtusk should be the only card for that. I thought that since I fetch my wincons color doesn't matter. Something I have come t realize is bad.
I will definitely try both Stormbreath Dragon and Glorybringer as well as your idea for the mana. And if you have any more suggestions on both sacs or big guns for Eldritch Evolution it would mean the world to me.

Phew.. had my worst FNM ever on friday. Going 1-3 with only winning against budget Allys.
First round against Burn. First match is always close against burn slightly favorable for them. Second match should be the opposite but since I drew 4 lands in a row.. he got me. 0:2
Second round against G/W Allys w/o Collected Company was kinda easy. Although he managed to lucky draw into Eerie Interlude in G2 protecting his team against my Damnation and got another nice topdeck afterwards with Kabira Evangel and swinging for lethal. 2:1
Third round against Bant Eldrazi. G1 went terrible. Turn 2 Thought-Knot Seer into Reality Smasher put enough pressure early on so I just did not came back anytime soon. I won the second game because he was kinda Temple screw.. Spot removal and Ob Nixilis did well jobs. Third game represents the way these decks can perform more often than they should. I Thoughtseize turn 1 into a crap hand with just 2 Eldrazi Temple. He drew into Thought-Knot Seer turn 2, into Reality Smasher turn 3 and another Reality Smasher turn 4. 1:2
Round 4 against G/B Tron. I kept a nice hand with Shadow of Doubt and 2 lands. Got stuck on 2 until it was too late sadly. Karn into World Breaker did not let me come back. Second game I had to mulligan to 5 but managed to start with Extirpate + Ghost Quarter. Sadly my opponent played Pithing Needle on turn 1 against Ghost Quarter (which I did not even played on my turn). This game took quite some time and somehow I could handle one Karn Liberated into Extirpate, Fulminator Mage + Extirpate on his Tron piece and survive 1 attack from Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. Sadly I did not draw any Phyrexian Arena in either games. I even survived his Oblivion Stone and although Erebos did a huge job I could not win the game. Leaving me with 0:2
So that was my sad 1-3 experience and I felt like I did no mistakes at all. Maybe I should have mulliganed the 2-land hand earlier but apart from that the deck sadly underperformed. On the other hand winning against Burn on G1 would have paired me against different types of decks. The metagame breakdown was as far as I remember (only first four decks in correct order): Jeskai Control, Valakut, Grixis Delver, Boros Burn, Naya Burn, Shadow Jund, UB Faeries, GW Ally, BG Tron, Bant Eldrazi, Abzan Elves and me on MBC.
Thought people might be intrested in a small FNM tournament report with underwhelming results ;).

I attended 2 game days, I went 3-1 only losing to a control deck, and omg our match (3 rounds) went on for about an hour and twenty minutes! It determined who of the two of us made top 4. I was playing this hybrid delirium/ +1/+1 counters deck with Walking Ballista, Winding Constrictor etc.
I didn't get all of my cards that I had ordered to replace my former delirium cards all on time so I had to play some different choices, which included things like a Ulvenwald Hydra (Could fetch a Blighted Fen for a last-resort answer to an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger which my deck had a lack of answers for if cast game 1), a Liliana, the Last Hope (as a 1x of since I sold 3/4 of mine), 1x Rhonas the Indomitable, a 1x Liliana, Death's Majesty (which I have to add is a lot of fun with things like Noxious Gearhulk and Verdurous Gearhulk, among a few other things because I was lacking cards.
It was back and forth us asking how many cards the other had in hand because he had Thought-Knot Seers and Harsh Scrutiny, while I had a playset of Transgress the Minds after sideboarding, to him constantly exiling my Kalitas, Traitor of Ghets, Verdurous Gearhulk (only had 2/4 unfortunately for gameday the other 2 were still in the mail) with Declaration in Stones, Stasis Snares and Anguished Unmakings.
Then if that was not enough to slow our matches down, he was playing Authority of the Consuls after sideboarding, as well as Kambal, Consul of Allocation to punish me and all my removal (Had a playset of Fatal Pushes, 3 Never / Returns, and 2 Grasp of Darkness to gain lots of life as well of course from 3x Noxious Gearhulk which he was using on things like my Mindwrack Demon, Verdurous Gearhulk, Ishkanah, Grafwidow among others... I was using 2x Noxious Gearhulk (one main/one side) myself too which was pretty funny. Beyond that he was stealing my stuff with mainboard Gonti, Lord of Luxurys of which he had I think 2-3 of and he managed to beat me with one of my own Kalitas, Traitor of Ghets. Also 2x Demon of Dark Schemes he had which he also used t recur things, but mainly his own, although he did at times kill off my Ishkanah, Grafwidow spider tokens.
That had to be my longest game of magic, I ended up losing 2-1 after drawing 5 lands in a row and him slowly whittling down my health all the while with a Gonti, Lord of Luxury I could not afford to trade one of my creatures with, this was when I already had like 11 mana available which was lame. But I got third place anyways. Despite being long it was a challenging, yet fun match.
The second gameday I went 1-3, the problem is my deck was inconsistent with it being rather a hybrid of two strategies (delirium and counters) since I was lacking some of my much needed +1/+1 related cards. I had to mulligan a lot due to lack of lands showing up despite me using 24 which is fine. I forfeited my last match too someone I know because if I was to win he would lose his chance at top 4 and I already being 1-2 had nothing to gain from winning so I let him advance, he went on to being in the final match for the champion playmat but in round 3 because his opponent had a really, really good opening hand with zombies he just got steamrolled in the third round when they were 1-1. But the one who won is also a friend of mine who never got a gameday mat since he started gamedays in OGW, although he came close with an Aether Revolt one when it was between me and him for the aether revolt champion.
You attend any game days?
