Tormod's Crypt Discussion

babushkasara on All hail the ancient crab

I'm currently procrastinating, so I have more suggestions.

Maybe you want to play more graveyard hate if you are playing against a lot of recursion.Tormod's Crypt is my option and since it doesn't exile itself you can use it more than once when you retive it to your library and then draw it back again.It has the bonus of no mana cost. But you might want to trade some cards for more grave hate.Consecrated Sphinx can be one card to mill you if you are not careful. So it can be a option to take out from the deck if you ever feel like you don't want it in.

For the lands, since you don't want to spend money on Flooded Strand, Hallowed Fountain, Polluted Delta or Mystic Gate, I think you have chosen the best ones.
Then, I'd remove Think Twice and add Serum Visions, reduce up to 2 Supreme Verdict (put another one in side maybe) and add some Mana Leak (Remand and Cryptic Command would be other good counters, but they are too expensive, right?).
I'm not sure how Sphinx's Revelation could be a win-con. Having more life than an opponent (and less cards in the deck!) isn't always synonym of victory. Then just one Elspeth, Sun's Champion isn't enough. What if an opponent maages to kill her?
I really can't understand why Esper Charm is there: probably you won't need it's first ability since you have counters (and cards in sideboard), second ability is just and Opt or Serum Visions that costs too much and third is, basically, Inquisition of Kozilek or even Castigate / Thoughtseize / Raven's Crime that needs 3 specifical mana to be used.
Secure the Wastes is a win-con if used in token decks that use also Intangible Virtue, Honor of the Pure, Zealous Persecution and Vault of the Archangel. Now it's used only as a 1/1 creature spammer.
I'll also consider Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Gideon of the Trials as an alternative win-con.
As for the sideboard I'll just give you some ideas: Tormod's Crypt (if you can afford it maybe also better a Relic of Progenitus or Rest in Peace); 1x Supreme Verdict (if you reduce them up to 2 in main); Kataki, War's Wage or Rest in Peace would be perfect against artifact decks; Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass; Grafdigger's Cage; even, if you want more budget things Blessed Alliance, Negate, Dismember.
Hope my ideas could help the development of your deck.

Funny looking deck, +1 from me!

How about Tormod's Crypt or maybe even Urza's Contact Lenses for the lulz. :)

Ray of Revelation is a really good one for removal, Also Qasali Pridemage.Qasali Ambusher is good in aggro decks. Tormod's Crypt against delve and returned decks.

Its ok, I think you would benefit from watching a couple videos on legacy storm decks. Your kill will be different, but they ramp up to 7 and 8 mana very quickly and consistently.

Also you might want to run some graveyard removal like Tormod's Crypt or the like to ensure an opponent doesnt have any free cost cards like Gitaxian Probe in the yard that they cast in responses to your win con.

If you're not liking the Mishra's Bauble's, maybe try out Sundial of the Infinite? You can use it to stop your Ball Lightning and Groundbreaker from being sacrificed. The downside would be that it doesn't really synergize with the rest of your deck.

Some sideboard suggestions:

Or if you really need graveyard hate, and you're in a pinch for money, Tormod's Crypt is probably the cheapest graveyard hate.
