Thought Scour Discussion

Hello. I just completed another deck. This one is more Control oriented and the land count is 23. The main inspiration for this concept comes from seeing potential in the new Vraska, Relic Seeker.

I have 2x Thought Scours main board and have been wondering if 2x and or more Ancestral Vision would be better?

The deck is here:

Blue splash for Sidisi, Brood Tyrant and Thought Scour can be good

Yeah, when I originally saw you running Reforge the Soul, I assumed it was just there to help replenish your hand while fitting your theme of using instants/sorceries, as for the Thought Scours figured you had em for their useful card draw and to disrupt things like opponents scrying and such.

Either way, I hope you get some use out of Surgical Extraction if you decide to try it out!

Hadn't thought of that wonderboyrox, ties in with the Reforge the Soul and Thought Scour as well. Thanks!

Looks pretty sweet! Here are some other cards to consider if you havnt already!

Thought Scour can help fill the graveyard to fuel delve for cards like Tasigur, Gurmag Angler, and Murderous Cut

Desolate Lighthouse>Drownyard since it helps fix your draws instead of simply milling

Your deck has a pretty high curve, Cruel Ultimatum Control is a pretty sweet deck if you wanted to make it like that with big top end.

Anger of the Gods>Pyroclasm. Sometimes the extra damage and exile clause is very relevant.

non budget upgrades

Snapcaster Mage

Creeping Tar Pit

Kolaghan's Command

Cryptic Command


Ancestral Vision

I think you are running about 3-4 creatures too many. If you trim the top end down to 15 creatures, like what you would see in a traditional Delver deck, you should be able to go down to 18-20 lands as well. Delver deck are super efficient and typically don't need more than 3 lands in play, 5 would be considered flooding, just a thought. As a top end, cards like Bedlam Reveler and Cryptic Serpent are better because they provide big bodies for cheap and interact well with spell heavy decks. I would cut Talrand and Aetherling and add either of the cards mentioned above.

Snapcaster Mage is the best blue creature spell heavy decks can play, though I understand if its out of budget.

Other good U/R cards-


Forked Bolt


Thought Scour-Really only good with Snapcaster Mage, Reveler, and Serpent

Flame Slash

Unsubstantiate- I like this card as my 5th Remand/Vapor Snag

demonicgrizzly Correct. You have to first end the WGD loop by animating another creature in someone's yard. But, at that point, you have infinite mana. Then you can cast Breya with infinite mana and sac her to herself repeatedly.

You can cast instants during the WGD loop, tho, if you have one that will help to put a creature in a yard. Stuff like Lightning Bolt, Izzet Charm, Intuition, Entomb, Fire Covenant, Frantic Search or a top-deck tutor + Thought Scour. I had been running slightly more of those cards, but moved away from them. You can also cast bounce spells to end the loop by targeting animate dead or the WGD itself. And if you have Bazaar of Baghdad in play, then that solves that problem.

@EdoxVelasquez: good idea I will look into it.

General: I can't really run more then 8 cantrips

For Opt: Beeing better then Serum Visions for instant speed, but less reliable to flip Delver of Secrets  Flip

For Chart A Course: Nice card advantage, but I think 2 mana is too high cmc. It might be worth it though in the late game to flash basck with Snapcaster Mage. Not sure though if it is better then Thought Scour / Snapcaster Mage / Bedlam Reveler synergy. But I will try it out

Thanks for your help
