Instant (1)

Sorcery (1)


This deck revolves around Veilstone Amulet and cards that can be played at instant speed to take advantage of it's protection. Advice is very appreciated.

Hm, seems like an interesting deck! Despite them not being instant speed, I'd strongly recommend playing 4 Serum Visions in the maindeck; they're just too good not to. I'd probably cut the Monastery Swiftspears you mentioned in your post, as well as Savage Knuckleblade and possibly one copy of Surrak Dragonclaw.

Asceticism is better then the amulet

Thanks Pieguy396, I appreciate it. I think 4 Opt and 4 Serum Visions is a little too much. I'm thinking either 4:2 or 3:3, but I'm leaning more towards 4:2 at the moment.

shadow63, I appreciate the suggestion. However I have to disagree with you. This is a tempo deck in a fast modern meta. Anything that costs 5 mana or more should be winning you the game within a few turns (like Surrak Dragonclaw) and Asceticism simply does not. It also doesn't really complement the tempo strategy because it doesn't reward you for playing your cards at the right time (I guess that's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's less fun).

Very interesting list. I'm unsure if there is any flashy one-drop (pun intended). Soul scar mage seems fitting, another possibility is Firedrinker Satyr, though the anti-lifelink might be too risky.

Thanks a lot seshiro_of_the_orochi, I appreciate it! I hadn't thought of Firedrinker Satyr, it's definitely an interesting suggestion. I think this deck might be just a little too slow to be able to handle the "anti-lifelink" as you said. Nevertheless, I'll do a little testing with it to see for sure.

Fair enough. The deck looks super fun

Just looking at the list, the one card that stands out to me is Magma Jet. I think it's a great card, but you could experiment replacing it with Titan's Strength for better tempo. You only get one scry, but you're also pumping your creatures which (I assume) will go through with trample or flying. I guess it depends on whether you find yourself jetting people to the face or if your creatures aren't making it through their blockers. Cool brew
