Thank you for your suggestions, hkhssweiss!

I've added some of the cards you mentioned, and moved around some cards, to see what works best. I have yet to try Warping Wail since I'm not sure if I have the reliable colorless mana. Besides that I haven't added Illuminate , Land Tax or Tithe because I don't own them yet. Some others cards I've added are Archangel of Thune and Door of Destinies, some other cards I've been considering getting are Thran Dynamo and Path to Exile and of course Serra, when she releases.

Chhris I would like to add more effects like Molten Nursery but I am not sure if there any colorless cards that can do that.

wideline1414 I do not have Amulet of Vigor in this deck, but it would be a great inclusion. Hopefully I can find a cheap one or trade for it. Thanks for the suggestion!

PacoBob Traxos does get removed a lot and Not of This World and Warping Wail would be great answers for that. Thanks for the suggestions!

If you're finding it hard to keep up Traxos, you can consider Not of This World and/or Warping Wail for added protection.

Counterbalance with Aminatou seems sort of like a build-your-own one-sided Chalice of the Void ... with your Sensei's Divining Top it become bonkers.

You might also like to run Silence as combo protection; however, depending on how fast you want to go off, Teferi, Time Raveler works as well.

Depending on the meta, Supreme Verdict might be better than Kaya's Wrath . Dispel may be better than Absorb as well.

I'm not sure why you're running Warping Wail . You might want to replace it with Demonic Consultation , which also combos with your Jace.

If you want to make room for a few Warping Wail s, what would you cut, if any?

CyborgAeon: That's precisely why I ran Warping Wail in the original iteration of the deck. As the deck became more refined it became feasible to cut it in favor of Autumn's Veil .

But to be honest, Toxic Deluge is easy to play around. The only time I play into it is if I had to cast what was in my hand before the Deluge player takes his turn, which has happened before, though, I have to be in a corner for me to feel compelled to do that. Great Oak Guardian is my Craterhoof Behemoth and my untapper, so if I have a way to save my field with him, I go for it. Otherwise I accept my losses and float some mana if dorks are the ones to be killed and try to outvalue the boardwipe by bringing something out.

Raging_Squiggle on Does Stack+Priority work like this?

1 month ago

116.1a A player may cast an instant spell any time they have priority. A player may cast a noninstant spell during their main phase any time they have priority and the stack is empty.

116.3b The active player receives priority after a spell or ability (other than a mana ability) resolves.

116.3d If a player has priority and chooses not to take any actions, that player passes. If any mana is in that player’s mana pool, they announce what mana is there. Then the next player in turn order receives priority.

116.4. If all players pass in succession (that is, if all players pass without taking any actions in between passing), the spell or ability on top of the stack resolves or, if the stack is empty, the phase or step ends.

Reading these rules, you can determine that your course of action was correct. There is always a round of priority before every object on the stack resolves. You can certainly wait for Scar to resolve, and then in response to Sure Strike , cast Warping Wail . Note that you could even let Sure Strike resolve and still cast Warping Wail because the satyr token would still have 1 toughness.

As for combat, the game will always proceed trough all combat steps if a creature has been declared an attacker. There will be a Declare Blocker Step (and a round of priority at end of said step) even if defending player has no creatures.

Note: on your number 2, there isn’t a second round of priority to pass through before Xenagos, the Reveler resolves. It’s just one round and done.
