Watery Grave Discussion

First of all, I'd like to say, I really like this deck. I have a few suggestions/questions which you may have already considered.

1) Instead of Tezzeret's Gambit, why not Throne of Geth? Once you have it down, you can sac colorless servos from Animation Module (or a thopter if need be) at instant speed and at a lower CMC.

2) If you did decide to use that instead, maybe you could work in Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for her -2, to take full advantage of proliferate.

3) I especially love your unconventional use of Mirrorweave; so much so, that I'm going to try to force it in when I build this deck, perhaps with some Forbidden Orchard (almost no downside) and a combination of Breeding Pool, Temple Garden, Godless Shrine, or Watery Grave.

Let me know what you think.

Adding in two Flooded Strand would assist with being consistently able to pull those Watery Graves if you are intent on being able to produce .

Your other (and perhaps better) option would be Sunken Ruins.

I hate to break it to you guys, but any leyline's triggered ability, in the starting hand, does not utilize the stack, cannot be responded to, and is prior to the game starting. Thoughtseize will NOT do anything to a turn 0 leyline. This is part of the reason why I run cards like Wipe Away in my sideboard. If you have access to lands that are actual duals, i.e. Sunken Hollow or Watery Grave, so they don't mess with your spells looking at number of swamps, then you can run these cards without any problems.

I tend to run my discard deck so that I have access to cards like Wistful Thinking and Lore Broker, which I think are much better than some other options. The broker isn't a targeted ability and will get around a leyline and it is especially useful when they are empty handed while your Caress is sitting there doing nothing. The broker could also utilize any madness cards out there. I'm also a fan of creatures like the good old Hypnotic Specter, but call me old fashion. You may want to look into Quest for the Nihil Stone if you're worried about Leylines. Quest doesn't target like Rack does.

Holy shit this is so cool!! Just a few minor suggestions.

Shock lands like Hallowed Fountain and Watery Grave are more expensive than Sunken Hollow or Prairie Stream, but they don't have to come in tapped if you don't meet requirements.

Secondly, I would add in 4 Wall of Denial (or Wall of Frost) to keep you alive. You never know what you may be blocking and sometimes tapping something doesn't do the trick if it has hexproof or shroud.

For removal, cards like Dismember, Ultimate Price, or even Stab Wound (which also provides another win-con) would be better in place of Assassinate, as being a 3 mana sorcery that only works on tapped creatures makes it only barely playable and very inefficient.

Lastly, since you've got creatures very well covered, it might be wise to include some Safe Passages to protect you from burn. Cards like Holy Day won't work to protect from burn because they only guard against combat damage. I would also throw in 4 Paradox Hazes for an amazing combo for the Azor's Elocutors. Hope this helps, I really love the deck. +1

Hey RubyStrings, not sure if you got my message on your binder but my Verdurous Gearhulk is from Kaladesh. I also have a Scrapheap Scrounger. I'm interested in your Sacred Foundry, Watery Grave, Steam Vents and Blood Crypt if we can work some combination out.
