Words of Wind Discussion

For about 10 bucks you could add Coveted Jewel , Words of Wind , Foundry Inspector , Jhoira's Familiar , Herald of Kozilek and Springleaf Drum . The Drum helps turn your creatures into rituals off of Recall and Retract effects, empowering your storm turn. The Herald, Familiar, and Inspector are other cheap cost reducers for a buck or less. Words of Wind and the Jewel work as a combo in tandem with the cost reducers. As long as you have cost reduction of 4 with Words out you can play the Jewel, draw the first card from Jhoira, tap the Jewel for mana, then skip one of the Jewel draws to return the Jewel to hand to play it again and draw the whole deck. At 5 or more cost reduction this combo also generates net positive mana per loop turning the Jewel into a ritual that draws cards.

Cloud Key is also worth considering, but it's about 15 bucks by itself.

Cloudstone Curio has come in and gone out a couple times. The slot it contends with is Words of Wind and since Words can operate both as a combo piece and an offense engine, it wins the slot for now.

Yarok triggers on ETBs. Burgeoning unfortunately triggers on lands being played which is a different event than entering the battlefield. That said, it's still super broken with Overburden or Mana Breach in play.

What about Cloudstone Curio ? A sort of free but asymmetric Words of Wind ?

how do you feel about Druids' Repository ? Most time I play it it ends up paying for itself anyway and can seriously smooth out sequencing issues/ accelerate to extra turn spells. I also Like things like Nature's Will etc for the same reason (also it gives you a little protection as does Sword of Feast and Famine . Timestream Navigator is a repeatable extra turn spell that is tutorable and the restriction is very minimal in Edric. I also like Words of Wind even though its a bit janky, but it attacks all opponents and it's easy to break parity with lots of 1 mana creatures.

Also, targetting it on your own best permanent then Akroma's Vengeance ing the field is great.
