I like this. + 1 from me. I've long wanted to make a deck on the same basic theme, and there are a lot of good ideas in here.

I love this deck!
Just wondering, why did you decide to take Ponder?
I have a similar deck that I built in standard if you want to check it out!

I took ponder because it offers 3 cards to look at, reorder as you please and then draw. If those 3 are cards you didn't want it also offers a shuffle. Very versatile

Have you perhaps considered Preordain?
I've gotten a bit into pauper recently and there is some tight debate over the preferred card.
What do you think?

Qwer57764 Hmmm, well ponder is essentially a scry 3 with the chance to reset if you don't like what you see. You can't put any cards on the bottom of your library but I think that's pretty minimal.IMHO I think ponder is better over all. Looking at the top 3 cards is better than looking at 2. The chance to reshuffle is invaluable as well. Preordain is great but I think ponder is superior in every way.

It's pretty close though. You are right about ponder digging deeper and ordain improving draw. But they are neck to neck, and I think it all comes down to preference.

Dredgar Yeah I certainly see your point. The argument that I have seen is that with Preordain you can keep one of the cards and pitch the other. Maybe better over the long game? Also, without shuffle effects, you can keep the cards that you bottom on the bottom.
But I'm sure that there is a reason that Ponder is restricted in Vintage! Thanks for the thoughts!
