Sage of Seconds (JOU Combo)

Standard* Combo Counters Theme/Gimmick




Lets break Sage of Hours cause he loves to come back for seconds. I've considered counter manipulation with Corpsejack Menace and Bioshift or cipher shenanigans, but figured the enchantment route could be viable.

Dakra Mystic , Dictate of Kruphix, and scry lands help us get the engine going

The ordeals and enchantment cantrips get the counters flowing.

Ajani, Oath of the Ancient Wood , Hero of Iroas , and Primeval Bounty enable the combo to hit repeatedly

I love this idea. Maybe Simic Charm In case of pesky control?

Also, with no basic lands, you're getting nothing off ordeal of Nylea except counters.

Thanks for pointing that out. Ordeal of Nylea is pretty important cause it thins dead draws when you are stringing together turn combos. I guess 10 basics should be enough.

I need to figure out what to pull for either Savage Summoning , Simic Charm , or Mizzium Skin . I think savage summoning could be the best option

benzzer853 there are several infinite combos with Sage of Hours . This deck aims more for the storm combo of draw and cheap heroic trigger enchantment.

Spirit of the Labyrinth with Dakra Mystic on their turn stops them from getting to draw and allows you the draw

Hey love the idea. I have been working on a similar deck mine is more midrange if you don't mind checking it out Bant Heroic Superfriends (journey to nyx included) . The enchantment line seems super fun though. +1 from me. I'd suggest Bioshift or Ranger's Guile to get you out of a bind with spot removal. I think with Esper control being such a big thing You need a way to make your creatures indestructible Ajani's Presence Rootborn Defenses .
