ShatteredEmpires on A Tribute to the Five Colors

Realized that Torrential Gearhulk doesn't really work for the deck, since it only has 2 Instants, both of which shuffle themselves back into the deck. Swapped it out for Snapcaster Mage. I know it technically isn't part of the cycle, but it is an even replacement that could work in the same instance.

Take out one Cast Out for at least one Ixalan's Binding. It does the work of a whole playset of Cast Out. Also, Seal Away is a card, and is usually better than Thopter Arrest. It's counterpart, Cast Down, is also really good. Killing a Glorybringer or Torrential Gearhulk for 2 mana is always great. Consider Radiant Destiny as well for creature buffs. Finally, add at least one basic Swamp. You never know when a Field of Ruin will make an appearance.

There is a lot going on here. It would be interesting to see it in motion. The only question I have is: why are you running Torrential Gearhulk when you only have 4 targets that are not that amazing to be flashbacked? Just to flash an artifact? I feel like a vehicle would fill that spot better.

As good as I believe that this is against pretty much every matchup, this will probably never beat W/U Control (Approach of the Second Sun, Torrential Gearhulk). It has way too many responses to your removal and you are too slow to handle it. Not to mention that your removal is almost worthless against it. Your only target would be Torrential Gearhulk, but it would just be countered anyway. If no one is running W/U in your meta, then I guess you're fine though. If you want to go 5/0 pretty much every FNM and never have fun, then I suggest you build W/U control.

Unlike EDH, substitutions in Standard make a deck a WHOLE lot weaker.

The best I can suggest is the following:

This was quite fun! I don't often get the challenge of finding substitute cards.

Mind you, I wouldn't want to do that all the time.

Argy I need momentarily replacement for the main deck cards: 2 Lyra Dawnbringer, 1 Settle the Wreckage, 1 Gideon of the Trials, 1 Teferi, Hero of Dominariaand the sideboard cards: 2 Torrential Gearhulk

Lucky77 on Blue-White Control

I have very little complaints for this deck, but being an azorius mage I have one: Why not buckle down on Approach of the Second Sun? It seems like your main win con is Torrential Gearhulk, but a few creatures for 6 mana isnt going to do much against something like a mono-red agro Deck. Where as winning almost every time on turn 8 will do a lot more. I think you somewhat realize this because you included 1 main deck and 1 sidedeck, but I think if you push Second Sun more youll win more games. Just an opinion from another azorius mage. Take it if you want.

Since Naban, Dean of Iteration is illegal, Kaho is definitely top pick for my own deck ideas. I only have store bought EDH decks so far.

Cerulean Wisps is great for turning your mana into cards 1 for 1 as Elite Arcanist or Kaho, Minamo Historian.

Quicken will let you play at the end of opponent's turn.

Back from the Brink will give creatures Flashback. Pretty useful for EDH I think.

Torrential Gearhulk will Flashback any instant. If you equip a low mana exile bounce card you can Flashback your graveyard instants as if they were in your hand. Double up on counterspells. Any creatures that return spells on ETB to hand also become very potent. Imagine tapping Elite Arcanist for 1 colourless each turn and getting back an instant or sorcery due to Archaeomancer. Crazy.

Quicksilver Amulet for gives creatures Flash. Saves on counterspells.

Fold into AEther if given to your commander will let you cast 1 mana spells just to counter. This will let you drop a creature down instantly as if they had Flash for 5 mana. If you can get Elite Arcanist to equip one then you can Flash creatures in regularly.

Other ETB creatures to take advantage of exile bounce triggers. Turns creatures into a reuseable spellbook.
