As Foretold is perfect for my deck!

Legacy Deck Help forum

As Foretold is amazing in my deck Tipping the scale! It allows me to play my spells even tho im all tapped out to Stasis. Possible to drop turn 2 with Ancient Tomb. It lets me lock down with Forsaken City without worrying about saving up mana.

I made a private deck with 4 As Foretold, 3 Ancestral Vision and 1 Wheel of Fate.

Playtesting shows that its a strategy that stays. Now im gonna update my original deck, and thought i would gather suggestions on what to take out for the 8 new cards before i publish, to see if i oversaw something..

Suggest away, 8 cards should go.

I have an odd relationship with this deck. It's been around TO forever and I see it around from time to time. I then quickly forget about it only for it to reappear. It's like forgetting that the house down the street has an energetic and playful puppy. Every time you walk past that house, this little bundle of joy who you've forgotten completely comes leaping toward you and you can't help but smile.

Ah, the memories I have with my own Stasis deck. Yours is a thing a beauty. makes me want to rebuild mine.

Anyways, on to the projected cuts. Definitely 1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor. He's the end game, but not a combo piece. Hell, maybe 2 Jaces, but that might not be ideal.

Cutting 1 or 2 Chain of Vapor might also be a necessity. With As Foretold coming in, the need to bounce Stasis back to your hand to untap is virtually nonexistent.

Now that we have 3 - 4 slots open, I firmly believe the last 4 slots depend on whether you value digging for combo pieces more, or having answers more. This is a bit harder.

You could cut 1 Counterspell, 1 Swords to Plowshares, 1 Spell Pierce, and 1 Spell Snare. It lessens your ability to react to your opponent though.

Another area you can potentially make cuts are with 2 Ponders and 1 Impulse. You still have Brainstorm, but with As Foretold out you'll be firing off Ancestral Vision more often than not.

Or you can do a combination or both. it's really up to your play style. Sorry my feedback was kind of long-ish. Hopefully I helped though! Best of luck to you. You make me want to build mine again :D
