Consult the Necrosages or Pilfered Plans?

General forum

I recently replaced Brainbite in my black/blue deck with Consult the Necrosages, but I am now wondering if Pilfered Plans would be an even better card for that deck, because consult the necrosages requires its caster to choose one of two options, whereas pilfered plans gives its caster both options for the exact same mana cost as CtNS.

What does everyone else say about that? Between consult the necrosages and pilfered plans, which card do you prefer?

I'd Consult the Necrosages. You have more flexibility in either getting more cards or reducing your opponent's options. Pilfered Plans is only good if mill is your wincon.

Phaetion, my deck does contain Consuming Aberration, and I also replaced Perplex with Psychic Strike, so milling is a major strategy (but not the only strategy) in that deck.

Pilfered mills while Necro can discard. I like going with Necro.

I'd say Pilfered Plans. You seem to be using mill, and plans help you build up to that.

Thus far, I have one vote for Pilfered Plans and two for Consult the Necrosages, so I shall wait to receive more responses before I make my decision.

Do you have a decklist that we can look at? With no other information, I'd say Consult the Necrosages, but I can't be certain.

It seems that more users here are in favor of Consult the Necrosages, so I shall keep that card in my deck.
