Milesfuzz: I've tested it and feel like it's unnecessary.

JimPurbrick: No worries, brainstorm seems fine but I'm trying not to dilute my deck too much. It's definitely a card on my radar.

JimPurbrick: Excellent idea for reality shift, I'm digging it. I've just replaced Deem Worthy with it to test it out.

LordKunai: I should have clarified better about Oracle, what I meant was if Oracle was interacted with by your opponent and is not available to you anymore as a win condition. Regarding Time Warp vs Temporal Manipulation, there really isn't any major difference in my choice. The only reason I've chosen manipulation is simply because it cannot be Redirected.

If for example I activate Wild Research multiple times while Rielle, the Everwise's draw trigger is on the stack, do I get to draw multiple cards or just one card?

plasmapython: Great observation, I did indeed intentionally build my deck to not be over reliant on Gavi as she is a pretty expensive commander with no in-build protection. Tutors definitely help but the number of cycling cards in the deck usually are able to cantrip into consistently get those cards anyways. I've tested long term plans multiple times but it has always been lackluster. Archmage ascension is too slow unfortunately and I feel like Wild Research is much better in combination with Mistveil Plains. Library is interesting but I would rather have another cycling card and Boon of the Wish-Giver is another good backup late game to refuel my hand.

Definitely consider adding an astral slide/drift package in. They are a powerhouse even if you don't dedicate ETB effects in your deck as they can do double duty of protecting your stuff (from targeted removal and boardwipe) and act as a fog effect to blink attackers coming your way. Don't forget that you have Vedalken AEthermage to tutor for both Warden and Scholar (both are wizards). I think it wouldn't hurt to try Toothy, Imaginary Friend in your list as another draw target with slide.

I've been loving Warden of the Eye/Scholar of the Ages and think it would be a great fit in your style of spellslinging deck. You can cycle through your entire deck using Scholar of the Ages + Turnabout + Escape Protocol + any instant/sorcery cycle to win with Thassa's Oracle as a fun cycling win condition. Warden of the Eye is also pretty sick with Decree of Silence + Astral Slide.

Notherwizard: I'm not a fan of that card in this deck unless I'm playing the competitive version using LED, wheels, and brainfreeze.

redbarron12: Perplexing Chimera is actually a pretty good card in this deck worth testing out. Good suggestion!

I agree with blirf about the land count. You generally want to play the land untapped and treat those cycling lands as cantrips to cycle through your deck. I personally have 38 lands in my deck and even that feels a little starved sometimes.

Notherwizard: Hi, you can replace drake with Agent of Treachery and crypt with Lotus Petal.

BlackWas: Dreadhorde synergizes with several elements of the deck including Gravecrawler and Cryptbreaker. It also provides lifelink (when the game drags on) which is very relevant in the deck. Altar of the Brood is definitely on my radar as well as Altar of Dementia.

May 21, 2020 9:50 a.m.

WW13 You're right. Thanks for catching that. Fixed!

DonFluffles: Glad you like the deck. I will be updating the primer according to the changes I've made to the deck so hopefully it will be easy to follow. I'm trying not to lean into the ETB theme because my commander isn't as reliable as Zur in tutoring out an astral slide/astral drift so I'm basically sticking to the cycling/tempo theme which has been working great so far from testing. However, if the ETB theme speaks to you for sure try it!

May 20, 2020 12:43 a.m.

DonFluffles: It's not really logistically feasible for me to keep track of all of the minor changes I make, but I do update on the overall higher impact updates. Basically I've pivoted into a more cycling heavy direction and updated my primer to reflect that. Hopefully that helps somewhat.

stcsteven97: I never felt happy drawing Solemnity tbh. It always felt low impact and doesn't really synergize with the deck much other than the combo with Decree of Silence which needs a ton of mana to assemble. I always wish to have another cycler or a higher impact card in its place. Decree of Silence serves a better purpose as a free recurable protection piece with Hall of Heliod's Generosity in my opinion.

May 19, 2020 3:43 p.m.

stcsteven97: That's definitely a good budget replacement. I would also consider Agent of Treachery as another great option.

BrutalAnimosity: Ghave definitely could slot into the deck and I could see adding a couple of persist creatures to synergize with it better too.
