Tidespout Tyrant Discussion
5 days ago
You might enjoy some more artifact-based ramp;
You could also benefit from average cmc reduction; thingslike Stolen Identity, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets attracts too much attention for what he does. Tidespout Tyrant is a combo card, it isn't all that good without combo, and Windreader Sphinx is a win more card (it's ok when you don't need it basically and doesn't do anything when you're behind).
Overburden is a gem in Talrand, since it isn't triggered by tokens Talrand makes, potentially providing a great tempo boost.

Thorbogl, Up until this point, I had never contemplated Tidespout Tyrant, but now I'm trying to figure out what to cut to make room for it. It was pointed out to me that Tidespout would make me an instant target, to which I replied "If I'm not already the target by the point I can play him, then there are much worse things to worry about."
Thank you for this awesome suggestion!

All of the ones I can think of require oodles of mana, but they work. You would also want a haste source for best results (i.e. Bloodlust Inciter)
P.s. this was kind of fun to brainstorm. There may be more that I can't think of lmao have fun!

Nice approach, like it.
What do you think about Tidespout Tyrant as alternative win con?He goes infinite with two creatures you can cast for free and also can cause havoc even if you dont combo immidiatly

I'm even thinking about replacing both Rule of Law AND Attunement for Oppression, as this card is both discard outlet and storm hate packed at the same, it also (sort of) synergizes with Necropotence because I will be always refilling my hand play after play (althought the discarded cards will be exiled).

@juniogof I traded for a prerelease foil of Conduit of Ruin the week it came out because I was so excited about the card and had it in here for a long time. I eventually removed it for Soul of the Harvest to get more generic card advantage since the conduit only has three targets currently

I think my unfamiliarity with reanimator Zur led me to undervalue your Cataclysm play; it does seem like a good play after you've reanimated a fatty. Although, I usually want to keep conditional plays (that are only good if I'm already swinging with Zur or reanimated a fatty) to a minimum.
Although, I sort of wonder about Tidespout Tyrant as a reanimation target. It seems like that's only good if you also have access to more reanimation for sun titan, or possibly infinite mana from rocks (which you should run more of) that you can combo with trinket mage. I've run tidespout tyrant in Teferi Planeswalker, where the general is an infinite mana outlet; but it seems worse here since Zur doesn't really do anything with infinite mana or bounce. I like Jin-Gitaxias, of course, and I get that you probably want another quality reanimation target (if sun titan and sidisi together aren't enough?)... maybe tidespout tyrant, even though it's weaker here, is still the best?
It's too bad there isn't a better win condition than the 4-card combo of sun titan, 2 animate dead enchantments, and blasting station / altar of dementia. Maybe Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Blood Artist ? It seems like it would streamline a lot of your lines if you could tutor a win more easily. Or, cut sun titan, tidespout tyrant, sidisi, buried alive, blasting station, attunement, replenish, and then add Laboratory Maniac, Doomsday, Tainted Pact, Frantic Search? Would give you slicker lines with just labman + pact = win; doomsday + necropotence has an awesome line (stack is: dark rit, necromancy, brainstorm, lab man, +1 other); and you could still put together strong (and sort of typical) doomsday lines with frantic search, git probe, brainstorm, and lab man.
I like EE alot; although potentially more in a list like Breya where you're already running the Salvagers combo. It's a pretty good sweeper here on 1 tho; cause like the best alternative might be ... Yahenni's Expertise and I'm not sure that's actually worth playing.
BTW, if you want to use rule of law, you should just use Arcane Laboratory, since it's blue. That makes it pitch to force and mis-d, and makes it easier to cast. OHHHH, Wait. You should play arcane lab + rule of law + Nullstone Gargoyle. Reanimate the nullstone gargoyle, fetch out arcane lab with Zur, then just swing everyone dead with Zur.
Last thing that pops out at me is that your mana base is a little frightening. I'd want to run a couple more basics to guard against Blood Moon and Back to Basics; unless nobody you play with ever uses these cards.
