Unexpected Results Discussion

I like it!, your deck definitely gives me some ideas! I've actually been looking for a Wargate and an Unexpected Results. Have you considered putting Trap Essence in your deck?

Mardu_Maniac on Free Cards? Sure!

landofMordor Thanks for your suggestions! I agree with you about my win-cons, but I'll probably slot something else in to help it!

hecklefeckle I completely misread Oracle's Insight, thought it just scryed. Definitely gonna grab a scroll rack soon, probably gonna use the rest of my store credit for it!

Damn, Unexpected Results is really good! I'll try to find a place to slot it in! I agree that I could use some more beefsticks, I especially like Kederekt Leviathan!

DRACULA150704 I do have a Forbidden Orchard, so I'll slot that in instead of a different land maybe.

Oh, where's your Unexpected Results? It's my favourite card, gotta suggest it. :)

I also think some beefy beatsticks would be helpful. I'm talking Terra Stomper, Stormtide Leviathan, Simic Sky Swallower, Kederekt Leviathan.

Talrand, Sky Summoner seems good here. I'd put three more lands in as well, and more ramp; you can't always cheat your big stuff in. Urban Evolution, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Commander's Sphere

Some more good removal: Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads, Cyclonic Rift. Gotta have cyc rift.

Can I say two? Unexpected Results is my top pick if not, and Bogardan Hellkite is second.

You could replace that control you said you don't like and Unexpected Results for a set of Dispel to counter control and some burn, or something more generic like Mana Leak

Cards I see on your list that I have seen others suggest, that I think are ok, but not necessarily as awesome as above:

Creatures (3):

Jhoira of the Ghitu, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Teneb, the Harvester

NonCreatures (5):

Bounty of the Luxa, Fires of Yavimaya, Guided Passage, Mortify, Nissa, Steward of Elements

Other cards I've seen others use, but I'm not quite as hot on (8):

Safewright Quest, Bituminous Blast, Ashen Rider, Zhur-Taa Druid, Putrefy, Supply/Demand, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Evil Twin

Fellow Zegana mage! I love the deck, but there are just a few things:

  1. I feel with so much ramp you are able to cut a land or two

  2. Disallow is strictly better Voidslime, but I'd probably play both if you have the room/want more counters

  3. Unexpected Results seems very weak, is it in the deck for personal reasons?

  4. I have had unbelievable results from Greenwarden of Murasa and because you have Deadeye and E-Wit, throwing in an extra turn spell (like Time Warp) gives you access to an Infinite Turns Combo!

+1 from me!

Prisms of Reality


At the beginning of your upkeep, choose a color, then but an X/X illusion token of that color on the battlefield, where X is equal to the number of permanents that color as the token comes into play.

: target spell that has a single creature changes to target an illusion you control.

Make something for controlled chaos (ie, has some element of randomness, but targeting or result must be beneficial, like Unexpected Results, for example)
