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.
Unmoored Ego Discussion
6 days ago
Choose a converted mana cost number between 1 and 8. You may search target opponent's library, graveyard, and hand for up to three cards of the chosen converted mana cost and exile them. That player shuffles their library, then draws a card for each card exiled from their hand this way. Then, you may scry X, where X is the number of cards you exiled this way.
This is meant to be an Unmoored Ego that gets you closer to the win condition written on Atemsis, All-Seeing 's card text. The scrying is just Sphinx-flavored sugar on top, which helps justify why this costs more than Unmoored and is legendary.
The same challenge! Let's see something for Kykar, Wind's Fury or Omnath, Locus of the Roil or Rienne, Angel of Rebirth or Drakuseth, Maw of Flames . There are a few others, too, so do whoever you want from Core 2020.

Yes, you get to choose only one card. If this card isn't in your opponents deck, bad luck.

Let's look at it: This is not like a Nexus deck or Esper control deck with only one way to win. It's closer to Jeskai superfriends. Sakhan is our most convenient and quick method to close out the game, but it is very much unnecessary against the slower matchup, which are exactly the ones that tend to have unmoored ego. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame + Novice Pyromancer can muster up a fast clock, and Chandra, Awakened Inferno is another very resilient win condition (remember that emblems can't be removed in any way). Besides, post board we have the potential to take a more aggressive of a line with Cavalier of Flame and Warboss. And if everything goes wrong and we somehow end up hard-locked behind control's counterspells (which is very unlikely with Teferi, Time Raveler in the format), we've got the Banefire for a reason. In the end, bringing in Unmoored Ego against this deck would be a mistake because our threats are too diversified for it to be worth the tempo loss. Instead of playing Ego, the opponent would be better off just jamming a threat.
The Elderspell can present a problem, especially if you're playing this deck and not aware of it. It's not directly game-winning, because by the time they can profitably cast it on 2 or 3 of our planeswalkers, with Chandra's Regulator and Repeated Reverberation in the deck, we've usually already generated a lot of advantage with our planeswalkers that having them destroyed in one fell swoop isn't actually backbreaking. Still, against any deck that can support BB, especially post-board, we have to be aware and careful. I try to never drop a fourth walker onto the field if I can in matchups where The Elderspell is a possibility. I got blown out by it in my first test game where I got too excited spamming walkers, but it's not too hard to play around once one remind themselves "if their deck's got black, better watch my back".
The biggest problem card I ran into, by far, is Mass Manipulation . If they elderspell three planeswalkers, it's bad but we can rebuild. Against that deck, we board out a lot of our slower Chandras (Awakened inferno, Fire Artisan) and just go race mode. Banefire goes a long way towards finishing the job.
And sorry for writing this much. I guess I'm too used to writing long sideboard guides...

The thing about mill is that it doesn't do much of anything by itself once key cards are in your opponent's hand or on the battlefield. Look for some good discard, Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are popular, Duress if you have budget constraints, and some counterspells. I also have a personal soft spot for Unmoored Ego as a removal card, but Surgical Extraction and Extirpate largely do it better for mill.

Also, if anyone has a problem with Unmoored Ego in their meta, a sneaky way to get around that is to play a copy of Mastermind's Acquisition and substitute it for a Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , then snag it from your sideboard.

Negate has been clutch in my local meta with more UW Control and RU Phoenix, but play testing a 3rd copy of Unmoored Ego and a copy of one to two Teferi, Time Raveler . Feel free to give any advice for this build and upvote if you like it. Thanks.
