Vanish into Memory Discussion
3 months ago
SinsOfTheMoon Going to # these points to try and keep my thoughts understandable.
Emry is an interesting way to fuel my graveyard, but it comes with inherent risks like milling over some of my very limited recursion spells. Another concern I have with emry is needing to devote a decent portion of the deck to achieve the soft lock you suggested. Emry isn't much of a blocker and returning it to my hand by niambi may buy me some time, but runs into the problem of tapping down to recast her. When that happens I would not be able to activate the ability to recur an artifact (summoning sickness). Would I even have something worth recasting even if I did/could? My gut feeling is that it's not where I want to be with this deck.
Having only 1 real discard outlet is something I had overlooked when building the deck originally. Good notice there. If I do keep on the current path, then I'll have to consider some other forms of draw/discard. Strangely enough Vanish into Memory comes to mind as an option.

Thoughts on Vanish into Memory ? Will draw you an insane amount of cards if you have Niv in play, and is fetchable by him.
Unfortunately he does have to be in play for this to happen.
Worst-case scenario is you have to target someone else's creature for a sub-par looting effect

WhattheDeck Thanks for the suggestions and compliment! I have been thinking about removing a wipe but I really need to get either Mystic Speculation and/or Clockspinning into the deck. They are more reusable spells that I feel are needed to make this deck more consistent. I have also ordered a Vanish into Memory for testing purposes.
I do really like Peer Through Depths though as you are likely to hit a spell. Although, it would be awful to whiff.

Barring exiling someone else's creature (preferably a TOKEN), yes, I usually use Vanish into Memory on an Awakened land, drawing a fistful of cards and then discarding none. Worst case scenario, you use it on a normal creature to dig deeper and find something you need, discarding the chaff.

Killzun Thanks for the comments. I do like Unsubstantiate but I don't think it fits well with my deck. I think it takes up the slot of a spell that I want in the deck. This does absolutely work though. As for Rise from the Tides , I think that it suffers from the problem of not doing anything if there aren't spells in the GY. I personally play with folks who exile and shuffle GY's into libraries and this card will suffer from that. However, if you aren't seeing those things happening in your playgroup this card is great.
oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid I took a look at your deck. Looks great. I think Noyan Dar can be built loads of ways that will work. Mine is absolutely not the end all be all. I just know that it does well and will win out of nowhere. I think the combo card you're looking for is Clockspinning . This absolutely does what you want. I have not play tested it but I know that Ender666666 has based on his deck They see me Roilin', I'm Shapin'....
Ender666666 I have not played it but my buddy does. So are you essentially just exiling one of your animated lands with Vanish into Memory to draw cards and then not discard lands since it just comes back as a land?
