Timetwister Discussion

I was tossing up between running Windfall and Necropotence actually. Ultimately I would love a Timetwister but I can't afford one in real life. I thought necro was overall the better fit though as the blue wheels depend on your opponents' hand size, plus discarding combo pieces seems bad. But I'm open to evidence to the contrary.

trancer99: Thank you :-) Yeah in the end food chain sidisi is just a bad food chain Tazri. Now that does not make it a bad deck by any means as FC Tazri is amazing, there is just no reason to play Sidisi over Tazri besides novelty and suprise factor. My Paradox storm decks are almost a full turn faster on average. Yawgmoth's Engine is a legit turn 2-3 deck whereas food chain sidisi is a turn 3-4 deck. It is better in almost every possible way.

Losing the 4 cards you mentioned does not hurt the deck much at all as none of them are essential and all of them have budget replacements.

Timetwister is my least favorite wheel by a wide margin. It is easily replaced with Whispering Madness which goes better with Waste Not.

Imperial Seal can be replaced with Lim-Dul's Vault.

Candelabra of Tawnos Isn't even worth a spot in this list imo so replace it with literally anything.

Grim Tutor can be replaced by Dark Petition or Praetor's Grasp, which goes in and out of my list.

These changes simply make the deck a bit slower and less consistent at times, but you will still have the ability to pull off turn 2-4 wins with great consistency as well as grind out slower wins. It is so much better than any other deck I have made. It also makes for a very competitive budget brew

Since this is budget, Day's Undoing might be a somewhat good replacement for Timetwister. You probably won't be casting more spells anyway that turn

If your plan is to win by making people draw and discard then more wheels should always be welcome. The main ones being Time Reversal, Winds of Change, and Molten Psyche. More expensive options are Time Spiral, Wheel of Fortune, and the all powerful Timetwister.

With all the wheel effects, Waste Not should be an autoinclude with all the value it can generate. With all the mana that you can get, Gemstone Array can help fix it for any color.

Other considerations for the deck are Anvil of Bogardan, Liliana's Caress, Bloodchief Ascension and Breathstealer's Crypt.

As for what to take out, Day's Undoing while being a wheel effect really helps your opponents out first unless you have Leyline of Anticipation out. Also, Wheel of Fate may be too slow. Viseling and Servant of Tymaret probably aren't needed. Convolute could be swapped straight with Counterspell.

Overall, i think you have a pretty solid deck though and have fun tormenting your opponents. ;D

Until I get a Timetwister. It's an easy wheel and metalcraft nearly always triggers. Admittedly, it's an easy cut when the time comes.

IAmTheWraith, these cards are excelent! I reeeeeally want to put Time Spiral in the deck, just don't know what to change, do you have any tip? I was thinking about taking Skyscribing out.

Timetwister is THE BEST "wheel" to use when playing with Nekusar, but it is too expensive, I can't afford it (the card costs more them my whole deck). :(

Temple of Deceit is too slow, cut it for an Island
Geier Reach should also be an Island, you don't ever want to spend to give your opponents hand crafting
Not a huge fan of Bojuka Bog, but its ok for utility.
What I'm getting at is, the more Islands you run the more powerful High Tide becomes. Casting Time Spiral with 1 or 2 High Tides active can be game winning, it can also provide you with the gas to do less efficient Doomsday piles that run protection.
You still need to add Ponder.

In a dedicated Doomsday deck like this, you might want to use Street Wraith. Although it does hit you in the face for 5 when you Ad Nauseum into it, you cant really interact with cycling as easily as you can another draw spell. Admittedly probably not worth running in a cEDH build, I just have love for that card.
Take out Void Shatter add Arcane Denial.
Mana Crypt is too good not to run.
Jet Medallion is only letting you cast 10 or so spells for cheaper, Sapphire Medallion is slightly more justifiable, but even so, I'd ax them both.
Retract is sweet, just saying.
Consider Memory Jar, obviously this would be a Timetwister if it wasn't $900.

I'm a big proponent of "Future Top" enabled by Helm of Awakening.
Future Sight & Sensei's Divining Top
Some really cool fun things happen when you cast Doomsday with Future Sight on board. Your pile might look like:
Lotus Petal
Mana Crypt
Laboratory Maniac
Lion's Eye Diamond
Brainstorm
So, if you run Future Sight, you might as well run the other 2 pieces that let you draw your deck and generate massive storm count anyhow. I LOVE "Future Top".

Cards that I think are otherwise very cut worthy:
Riptide Laboratory
Meekstone
Thing in the Ice  Flip
Leyline of the Void
Traumatize
Wish you best of luck tweaking this deck, and hope you have fun with it most of all.
