Shuffle your library, then reveal the top card. If it's a nonland card, you may cast it without paying its mana cost. If it's a land card, you may put it onto the battlefield and return Unexpected Results to its owner's hand.

Unexpected Results Discussion

Urza looks like he would be an awesome commander for a mono blue artifact deck. Making all artifacts be mana rocks that can tap for could be really valuable and the Unexpected Results like effect could be really good as well.

Thanks for the review WizardOfTheNorthernCoast! Looks good! I got some tips from the discussion on your deckpage. Unexpected Results is definitely on-theme but it could stop the Surge wincon. Seems like you put in more passive draw compared to my ETB/on-cast draw. I guess I could try that for another time. Would you ever get more than 7 cards and have to discard though?

  • I put the Conjurer's Closet and Minion Reflector because I have alot of ETB effects, so these help me to 'recycle' them. I think its fine to cast them on the mainphase or flash them in with Orrery/ Leyline/ Alchemist Refuge. The Reflector requires me to pay each time so i'll be cutting it out.

  • I'll be cutting Beast Whisperer first since GP works with the conjurer's closet. The Whisperer can be copied to give me insane draw though, so I need to test it out. And I almost forgot, the commander herself is a draw engine.

  • Primal Surge says 'may' so that incident with the Leviathan stopping the wincon wouldnt happen!

  • the Murkfiend Liege was meant to be my alternate Seedborn Muse but would only work if I had more manadorks. Having 6 manadorks, probably this isnt a reliable way to get flash mana.

  • I actually opt to remove Mwonvuli Beast Tracker because it has only 5 targets now/

  • swapping Wood Elves for Farhaven Elf because the only value land I get from the latter is Breeding Pool . Being able to search for any basic means I can get more islands online for Scourge of Fleets

  • shelving Gyre Sage for now as it takes awhile to get online, while Karametra's Acolyte is probably more reliable for ramp

  • I kinda like the Coatl / Mizzium Meddler / Voidmage Husher / Void Grafter though. Part of the theme of flashing

  • the Diluvian Primordial could work many things. Maybe I cast a wheel, or flash the Primordial in response to use an opponent's Counterspell. hahah

Love me some Kruphix eldrazi - I recently built a similar list and highly recommend Unexpected Results as a fun way to cast an Eldrazi for 4 mana. Since you get to cast for free rather than putting it into play you still get the draw and exile triggers from your Ulamogs and Kozileks. Here is my list - http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/31-12-18-tVx-kruphix-god-of-eldrazi/

Ya need more lands, at least 35 if not more. Also cut artifact ramp like Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo. You're in green, you can get some wild green ramp. Rampant Growth Farseek Kodama's Reach Search for Tomorrow You also have Tunnel vision in there, probably don't need since it's not really a mill deck, but you didn't include Spell Crumple and Hinder. I'm also not a fan of the "Counter target spell unless they pay x" spells. Hinder and Crumple are much better, even without tunnel vision. You also may have too many counterspells. Essence Scatter also isn't great for you in edh. I'm not a huge fan of Cryptic Annelid, Cartouche of Knowledge, Elixir of Immortality. Some good removal Beast Within Krosan Grip, Pongify

Some fun stuff to add:

Chaos Wand - Can trigger Rashmi to cast 2 spells for 4 mana

Courser of Kruphix Plasm Capture

Trygon Predator - Fly boi with removal

terastadon - Big boi with removal

Draining Whelk - Might be on theme for you. Get a big boi and counter a spell. Kinda expensive though

Kogarashi on Aven Mindcensor and Tempt with ...

7 months ago

No player receives priority during the resolution of a spell or ability. Unless a spell or ability specifically allows a player to cast a spell or play an ability during its resolution (such as Unexpected Results), no one can actually play spells or abilities during resolution.

So your friend would either have to cast Aven Mindcensor before Tempt with Discovery begins to resolve, or wait until it's done. If they allow three people to do the search first, then the spell is already resolving and they can't put Aven Mindcensor on the stack until Tempt with Discovery is completely resolved and cleared from the stack.

Cut: Mental Misstep (too narrow), Unexpected Results (deck too reactive), Plasm Capture (too colour intensive).
