Also for your mana curve I think if you want more 2 drops you might consider running 4 of Young Pyromancer and then maybe adding a flexible card like Izzet Charm . You can counter a non creature spell, do some spot removal, or get to your top end faster in 1 card. You could just cut a few 3 drops. My first cuts would be Protean Raider , or Call to Mind or Unwind . If you want more cards on your top end Ral, Storm Conduit might be good as a one or two of.

If you wanted to focus in that direction, Young Pyromancer + Murmuring Mystic + Talrand, Sky Summoner + Gamble is 4 cards. If you included all four you could consistently mill to a hand with one of them. You would need an average of 8.25 mana (doesn't need to be spent on the same turn) to generate infinite mana.

Saheeli creates infinite mana with a Young Pyromancer creature (i.e. Docent of Perfection  Flip, Metallurgic Summonings , Murmuring Mystic , and Talrand, Sky Summoner ) and Battle Hymn

Also Metallurgic Summonings will reduce thoughtcast's commander tax to zero.

Joe_Ken_ on Adeliz Arcane adaptation

1 week ago

So I’ve been making some changes to my Adeliz wizard deck to make it more of a token spam kinda thing with Young Pyromancer , Murmering Mystic , and Talrand skysummoner . What I was thinking was including a copy of Arcane Adaptation into the deck to make the tokens into wizards so they can also get the buffs that Adeliz passes around to other wizards.

Apologies that both Murmering mystic and Talrand both link to someone else's decks, but it happens like that sometimes when others name their decks the same as a card.

Here is a non-updated version of the decklist that I will be working to get up to snuff.

A few thoughts. This is gonna be some word vomit, so take what you please. I'm also only going to suggest more budget-friendly cards, since this is casual (so no Cyclonic Rift ).

aldrewelow Hi, how are you doing? Maybe I can answer your question for ChibiNature.

Isochron Scepter is great but will not trigger Paradox Engine , Zada, Hedron Grinder , Aetherflux Reservoir , Young Pyromancer , Monastery Mentor , and Runaway Steam-Kin .

The text says "You may copy the imprinted instant card and play the copy without paying the casting cost". The key is the word "COPY" and "PLAY", we want the word "CAST"

Hope this answers your question.

TwinStags Here goes:

Mentor of the Meek : You cast a spell, Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor trigger, you now have 2x 1/1 coming into play. Do you pay 2 colorless more to draw 2 cards? This is good in a token deck, but when you have a token deck you might as well be running Skullclamp where you are paying 1 colorless to draw 2 cards, way better value. Feather decks will be mana starved to begin with, spending as little mana as possible is the way to go.

Spawning Breath : This depends on what you are trying to get out onto the field. Something big with a lot of colorless? Or we you just trying to make more 0/1 creature tokens where you pump and attack? If so then this will combo off Zada, Hedron Grinder and get you a lot of 0/1 creature tokens. That is if your other tokens survive.

Leering Emblem : Run this only if you are going to go Spellslinger+Voltron. Because it is +2/+2 for each spell until end of turn. ChibiNature might be able to do the math for you to see if this is worth running in terms of CMC and equip cost.

Solemn Simulacrum : This is only worth if you are going to bounce it in and out of play to grab you lands, other wise 4 for a 2/2 is not worth.

Chandra's Ignition : Oh boy, I have a better card for you if you run tokens. Consider Soul's Fire cast onto Zada, Hedron Grinder and you having a billion tokens. It is ANY target, so even planeswalkers.

If you are going the token route I want you to take a look at Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault or even Seize the Day cast onto Zada, Hedron Grinder for as many combat phases as you have creatures that are tapped at the moment of casting.

TwinStags I would be more than willing to say that Heroic cards are not worth keeping in. They'd need to have a REALLY good heroic effect in order to warrant a slot in the deck. The only cards that are similar to heroic that deserve a spot are Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor because they dont need to get targeted, which let's us be a lot more flexible with how we can combo out.
