Vedalken Shackles Discussion
1 day ago
Blue Sun's Zenith is listed twice
Riptide Laboratory to save talrand and reuse snapcaster and aeromancer
Academy Ruins to recur your artifacts
As Foretold is crazy good. Must add
Future Sight for value
Overburden to slow down those green decks
Vedalken Shackles to get whatever you can't counter. Plus it fits your abusive theme well.
Cards to remove...
Favorable Winds win more card
Leyline of Anticipation most of your deck is instants

Hey. I love the idea of a clone deck, fun and cheap. Your average converted mana cost seems high and you don't have much ramp.
Crystal Shard > Erratic Poral
Tower of Calamities costs too much for what it does.
Kefnet's Monument might be something to consider
Vedalken Shackles can be a fun card
Worn Powerstone more ramp

I always love to see another Talrand user. Let's make sure we kill everyone's fun, leaving only for ourselves, shall we?
Overburden is always fun (doesn't apply to your tokens, only nontoken creatures)
Land Equilibrium if you have the $ (currently waiting for funds to free up for myself)
I know you run Back to Basics but I still must recommend the following for you to consider...
Academy Ruins - Recur important artifacts (Ex: Isochron Scepter)
Riptide Laboratory - Saves talrand, baral and most importantly reuse for Snapcaster Mage
Caged Sun > Gauntlet of power
Sphinx of the Final Word seems weak (unless there is another person in your meta who plays counterspells). Even then, it's still not that good for how much it costs.
You can't counter everything, that's where Vedalken Shackles comes in :)
Blatant Thievery has won me a couple games
Feel free to check out my deck Tisk Tisk Talrand for some other ideas. +1 from me. Let me know if you have any questions/comments about my suggestions :)

Izzet Charm, Remand, Snapcaster Mage, Scalding Tarn + Steam Vents, Think Twice, Blood Moon, Burst Lightning over Wild Slash, Roast or Flame Slash. All cards you should consider adding. Also, Academy Ruins to go with Wurmcoil (and maybe Vedalken Shackles?). You may also play Bonfire of the Damned.

Vedalken Shackles is fantastic in decks with a lot of islands.

Thanks for the feedback!
Vedalken Shackles for sure is a powerful card, I'm just not really sold on it in a field where Death's Shadow and Eldrazi Tron are the biggest threats. But then, I have never tried playing it. What do you think about the fact that it might be hard to reach 5 islands to be able to steal a Reality Smasher?
The reasoning behind Hieroglyphic Illumination is that cycling for one blue has been really huge for me to get to Blood Moon on turn 3 aswell as giving me card advantage later on with Snapcaster Mage. I'll try a 1-1 slip next week and see how it performs though!

I think Vedalken Shackles is pretty well positioned due to the lack of Abrupt Decay right. Seems strong in a deck with 10 islands.
Also, not a huge fan of Hieroglyphic Illumination. I'd rather just have Think Twice. Everything else looks sweet. Nice deck.
