Could this break standard?
Also can someone explain how to get an image that looks like in the 'Pod is Back?' forum.
Casting this turn 6 lets you cast Nexus of Fate on your endstep meaning you untap with this in play. Then you can play virtually any card advantage engine and still have a chance to cast any nexus of fate you draw into. Alternatively, you could play this turn 4 leaving mana up for counters, Settle the Wreckage ect. and go off as soon as next turn. To put this in perspective, the old deck had the competitive advantage of being able to win if you untapped with a Teferi, Hero of Dominaria in play but now your opponent can answer everything you play until turn 6 and you can still just go off that turn.
I’m not saying this could fit in a traditional control deck but this card can singlehandedly give you enough mana to cast Nexus of Fate and then some.
We don’t know what the meta will look like just yet but I’m still worried. Pls save us mono-red lol.

Yea... definitely getting some broken vibes here lol. This can work with that Turbo Fog standard deck. Only thing “turbo” about it is the increasingly amount of salt you ingest as you eat 5+ fog effects to the face while you’re swinging for lethal each turn lol.
But yes. This card opens up a whole bunch of broken stuff. Can’t wait for this set.

Also, this turn 4 (turn three if you Growth Spiral).
Teferi the following turn, +1. Endstep float mana and untap some lands and wapow! Nexus, the same turn you cast good ol tef.
This has been my pet card since it has been spoiled. Here is another broken thing you can do with it in naya ramp. Let’s say you get wilderness rec turn 4 into a growth spiral on the opps turn. Then on turn five you can punch your opps face or biggest creature really hard casting electrodominance in your endstep flashing in zacama from your hand, untapping all 6 mana and mowing down any remaining creatures!
