Top Ten on Isochron Scepter?

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Sept. 9, 2017, 4:38 p.m. by entheogeneral

So I've been using Isochron Scepter for about a year now, definitely one of the best cards in all of MTG, and I was wonder what you think are the Top Ten best cards to use it with. The obvious ones i can think of are Timewalk , Counterspell, Orim's Chant (or Silence), Dawn Charm, Angel's Grace, and so many more.

P.S.The new Jace is a total fag.

Time Walk is a sorcery, you can't put it on the scepter.

It's a pretty simple use, but Dark Ritual and Desperate Ritual turn it into a decent mana rock. There's also the infinite combo with Dramatic Reversal and at least 3 mana in rocks.

P.S. I don't see what the new Jace has to do with this

Dudes, all fantastic ideas. And yeah, I blanked on that one. Memory Lapse is definitely a scoop-worthy card. High tide is good, especially with Palinchron. And you just can't do that to a Jace. Got rid of his cloak and made his abilities crappier than Sorin, Solemn Visitor's, although at least Sorin's art is badass.

As far as edh guys, Dramatic Reversal has the highest ceiling and is very easy to get infinite mana off of.

On a more important note, there is no place here for language that can offend people, especially regarding sexual orientation. This community has plenty of people who identity with LGBT and I'd consider the use of the term "fag" as cyber bullying.

There is really people that scoop for a simple isochron acpeter + memory lapse ?! This is so easy to deal with if the opponents team up ...

Anything can be dealt with if you somehow land a Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk or some other thing that can stay on the field (like Pernicious Deed). And I use the Dramatic Reversal combo to win mostly with Sol Ring and Darksteel Ingot and use said mana to deck someone (or myself) with Stroke of Genius. TO clear things up, I really enjoy this community, you guys are all so helpful and intelligent (unlike those who play Yugioh, ha!) but I make no attempt whatsoever to filter myself on the basis that nothing matters anyway. I don't have any disrespect for the LGBTUVWXYZ community, what with me being somewhat queer and all. Anyway, view me as you want and thanks for the contribution.

I had one EDH game with Hero's Demise on it. That was pretty funny.

Oh, and there was one very memorable game that Lim-Dul's Vault made super easy.

I have to say I like any decent Counterspell, Impulse, Swords to Plowshares, Brainstorm (a personal favorite of mine), Skullcrack, Atarka's Command...I know there are quite a bunch of them, but those are some of my favorites.

Atarka's Command looks super powerful (as well as the others). I'm thinking a Vampiric Tutor, sure you'd lose life every turn but you'd only lose 6 life before you can get two combo pieces and a Dispel
