Unmoored Ego

Sorcery

Choose a card name. Search target opponent's graveyard, hand, library for up to four cards with that name and exile them. That player shuffles their library, then draws a card for each card exiled from their hand this way.

Skippyeights on Spectors, Vamps, and Thieves

garruk3. Thanks. I was going to add Psychic Corrosion to the maybe board. Originally, I left it out of the build because the mill engine is really a secondary function of the Thief of Sanity --I like the thought of stealing the other player's stuff to use it against 'em. The milling would just buff the Haunt. However, I have been thinking of adding additional card draw and that combined with the Psychic Corrosion would expose a lot of the other deck and would make the Unmoored Ego more effective. It could be swapped in for the Disinformation Campaign but would also change the focus of the deck a bit. Hmm.

I appreciate your suggestion.

looking for thoughts. haven't tried the deck out yet, mostly assembled here to visualize the curve and strategy as I don't currently have most of these cards.

Basically, I want to remove threats before they become threats, either through Traumatize or effects like Duress and Drill Bit , then exile the cards with Unmoored Ego and Nihil Spellbomb . And work to Ult Kaya, Orzhov Usurper . So, Holy Day , Supreme Verdict , and Fatal Push to protect her, along with the creatures.

This is a budget build - I full realize that it would do better with things like Surgical Extraction , Thoughtseize , Extirpate , etc. Looking to keep the whole build (main and s/b, non land) around $100.

Definitely a cool deck, but might I recommend Unmoored Ego . Being able to exile 4 annoying cards (counterspells, burns, hexproofs) before they hit the battlefield seems like it'd help protect your deck a bit. Also, I would replace Ravenous Chupacabra with Nightveil Predator . A 3/3 with flying, deathtouch, and hexproof for the same mana cost seems like a pretty good swap to me.

skoobysnackz on Nexus of Fate combo

There are several ways of taking infinite turns with Nexus of Fate . Yes, one of the newer ones is using Primal Wellspring but I think those decks want to win off Expansion / Explosion rather than Teferi. I think the deck started out with just Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Search for Azcanta  Flip, and Chemister's Insight to help draw a nexus when you need it. It also had tons of "fog" effects which is very similar to taking an extra turn against the aggressive creature based decks. Now we also have the addition of Wilderness Reclamation which lets you float mana and activate azcanta an additional time each turn for every copy of reclamation you have. A board state with a flipped Search for Azcanta  Flip, a Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and at least one Wilderness Reclamation would be incredibly difficult to beat without Unmoored Ego or something.

Docgrind, yes, I also like the idea of Drill Bit . Thoughtseize in Standard is everyone's dream but I'm not sure about Mardu colors. Drill Bit looks fun in Rakdos burn (T1 Shock , T2 Shock + Drill Bit - sounds like a plan, eh?) or even in some weird Dimir builds (T1 Vicious Rumors , T2 Vicious Rumors + Drill Bit , T3 Unmoored Ego - bingo!). But Mardu tokens... Who knows? Let's make some experiments.

I also think that 1 Gaea's Blessing is a good thing to have as looping a Nexus of Fate doesn't actually make you win unless you have a vraska. I also think that have a Unmoored Ego in the sideboard would be good because it completely beats nexus of fate decks. (Name nexus of fate, then they can't go off). Otherwise this looks great.

I think Unmoored Ego is an all-star in G2 and G3, but having it in your main deck is a bit awkward in my opinion. It doesn't do anything to a threat on board, only stopping more copies of something. I think this slot could be better utilized by another counter spell ( Absorb or Sinister Sabotage ), removal, or something that can exile ( Seal Away , Profane Procession  Flip, or Conclave Tribunal ).

If you wanted, you could even run Ixalan's Binding ), as it does hit something on board and guarantee they can't cast something of the same name
