Unexpected Results


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.

Kogarashi on Aven Mindcensor and Tempt with ...

1 month 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).

CrimsonKobalt on Sliver EDH Control Deck

You have included a lot of fun things I see! I have also included cards like Imprisoned in the Moon and Narcolepsy to deal with pesky commanders, including Declaration of Naught (that one is more for my playgroup). If they do not have a sac engine those kind of enchantments completely screw their game plan.

Also Unexpected Results, because well, unexpected results...

All very budget and effective!

Hello there! So I would LOVE to help you out! Ok so as you have read the MOST and I mean ABSOLUTE MOST lands you can have is 40 and higher that is just not needed. In slivers or just making slivers form your sliver queen try getting cards like when a creature enters the battlefield and things like that and be careful of cards that so when you cast a creature spell instead of when a creature enters the battlefield. Artifacts - Keep Ashnod's Altar Chromatic Lantern Gilded Lotus Sol Ring Lands - Keep Canopy Vista Command Tower Dark Depths Flagstones of Trokair Gaea's Cradle Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Pillar of the Paruns Thespian's Stage VesuvaInstants - Enlightened Tutor Vampiric TutorSorceries - Channel the Suns Commune with Nature Demonic Tutor Restore Sylvan Scrying Time of Need Vindicate Creatures - Auriok Champion Courser of Kruphix Essence Warden Hangarback Walker Joiner Adept Linvala, Keeper of Silence Soul's Attendant Soul Warden Urborg ElfEnchantments - Defense of the Heart Exquisite Blood gravepact Land Tax Sanguine Blood Tranquil Grove Ok so those are the cards that I would keep for starters. Cards like Azusa, Lost but Seeking Exploration and Explore will definitely help you out with your land. Plus cards like Authority of the Consuls Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Ghostly Prison help you out early game to get ahead of everybody. Also I know what I said about the whole creatures entering the battlefield and all that but actually Zendikar Resurgent will be a HUGE help for mana and card draw if you got creature which is my assumption. Also Protean Hulk Tishana, Voice of Thunder and Seal of the Guildpact just for extra support. And plus if you want some just plain fun do Sheoldred, Whispering One, Equilibrium, Rhystic Study, and Unexpected Results. Hope this helps!!!!!

Hey, thanks for the suggestions and the upvotes!

@Atuva: Yeah, Enter the Infinite + Omniscience would be an instant win in the deck. I won't include it while testing, but it should be in a final version, I think.

@Atuva and SirSh4ggy: Ramos, Dragon Engine has high upside if its ability gets going, but he will be too slow in the deck without further support, I expect. That's because there are relatively few multicolored spells and the cmc of the deck is rather high (even with the alternative cost from Jodah). And I don't want to put cards like Doubling Season in the deck only for Ramos. It would be great if somebody pointed out a way to include Ramos, Dragon Engine into the Grozoth combo (searching him out with Dragonstorm wouldn't do much yet).

@SirSh4ggy: Maelstrom Wanderer doesn't hit most of the powerhouses in the deck, so I didn't include it, but Unexpected Results seems cool because it either ramps or has a chance on hitting the powerhouses (and I play few counterspells) - cool addition!

Quicksilver Amulet and company won't let me use the cast triggers of my creatures, so they're not optimal. But Defense of the Heart is a tutor at least and can search something like Dragonlord Kolaghan + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre which is nice. And Elvish Piper could maybe replace Myojin of Life's Web.

@Spoosky: Akroma's Memorial is a good idea! A lot of my creatures have no evasion at all and this will give them all kinds of evasion. If testing shows that my threat density is more than enough, then I'll try to find room for the memorial.

This is a wicked dope deck. Your mana fixing seems great, surprisingly! My advice is to find more ways to cheat things into play.

Check out Maelstrom Wanderer, as you could cast it for 5 and cascade twice for 8. Unexpected Results might just be a fun card to throw in there. Defense of the Heart is two free beasties for a 4 mana cost enchantment. Quicksilver Amulet, Dragon Arch, and Elvish Piper are all much cheaper alternatives to your commander's ability.

For other mana fixings, look at Ramos, Dragon Engine's ability. While it's not exactly fixing, Maelstrom Archangel can do similar things as Ramos if you get her swinging. Anyway, I hope this helped. Good luck!
