Said on Wheeling Titans...

#1

Very nice deck :)

A few suggestions:

Decree of Pain and Recurring Insight for other great card draw sorceries

Magus of the Jar and Arjun, the Shifting Flame for more card draw on a stick

Curtains' Call and Seeds of Renewal for more cards that don't actually cost the mana cost printed on them

I'm curious about your thoughts about Norn's Annex vs. Marchesa's Decree. I keep on going back and forth as to which one I want more. What led you to include the annex but not marchesa's decree?

I'm thinking of changing my Kydele/Thrasios deck into Kydele/Vial Smasher. This deck definitely offers inspiration! My current deck is Thrasios and Kydele: Eldrazi Envoys

A couple suggestions: you may wanna include cards that have high CMC but get cost reductions like Blasphemous Act, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise. The new "undaunted" cards like Curtains' Call and Seeds of Renewal could be good too.

Head Collector, I found I didn't really need both. So yes...when I cut one I decided based on art haha

You've definitely sold me on Frantic Search. It would be great in here.

Time Spiral I would do if it wasn't so expensive. Great card but a bit more than I'd like to spend on 1 card.

I'll keep an eye on Diminishing Returns. I havent encountered the problem of exiling away too many win conditions but I see how that could be a problem. Commit/Memory is on my short list of other time twister effects

Hi Fresh303, thanks for the suggestions!

Only reason Cyclonic Rift isn't in here is because it's banned in my playgroup. You won't see it in any of my blue decks. Cards like Evacuation, Whelming Wave, Aetherize, and Aetherspouts are used in its place.

I see how Seedborn Muse would be great in here. My only copy of it is in my Rhys deck where I think it's more needed. It's kinda pricy so I don't want to buy a second copy.

Of your other suggestions, Teferi interests me the most! Untapping 4 permanents, including Kydele would be huge.

I'm curious what downsides you see with Spellbook and Diminishing Returns. The 10 cards exiled by Diminishing Returns is a small price to pay for a Timetwister effect. It powers Kydele really well. Spellbook I'll grant is fairly low impact. I just like being able to hold on to all the cards I draw. What are your thoughts?

Phronimos, thanks for checking my deck out. I've purposely stayed away from combos in my deck. Every time I've built a combo deck I've quickly become bored with it. Just not my play style :) I like the slow midrange value this deck produces.

I checked out your deck and upvoted it. It's a very nice deck

Now you've explained Grave Titan, I totally see how it fits in here :)

Low curve creatures? I like Merciless Executioner and Fleshbag Marauder. They also will trigger your commander as you sacrifice them.

Also really like Ophiomancer. Great rattlesnake and if your snake token gets killed... Great.. Another Vela trigger for you.

Absolutely include Faerie Artisans. I use it in my keranos deck and it's wonderful. You're getting so many ETB triggers with it.

I'm curious about muddle the mixture. Black has so many unconditional Tutors, why use one with such limitations? I'd suggest Sidisi, Undead Vizier. Unconditional tutor and you'll get a vela trigger off him.

I'd also suggest Phyrexian Arena in place of Bident of Thassa. The arena slowly gives card advantage over the long haul. It's an Enchantment that tends not to get hated out.

If you're looking for cards to cut, maybe Grave Titan. Amazing card but does it really fit with the theme of the deck? It's either a good aggro card or a good token sacrifice card. You're not really doing either.

Be careful with Grab the Reins. It doesn't untap the creature you steal which can often be relevant. I still like it but it's further down the list of red "threaten" cards for me.

I love Besmirch. With the goading it's almost like you control the creature for two turns. Word of Seizing is great because of split second and the flexibility of stealing any permanent. With your very low CMC, Kari Zev's Expertise may work for you. I wouldn't normally suggest it in commander but you actually have quite a few 1-2 CMC spells you could cast for free.

Emzed, that's an interesting point regarding having a ton of good cards at CMC 3 that I could transmute for. My problem with transmute in black (this doesn't apply to blue) is that black has multiple unconditional tutors. If I wanted another tutor in here, I'd probably go for Demonic Tutor or Entomb since they can fetch me any card. I've purposely kept my amount of tutors down. Really appreciate the suggestion though!

I do agree that Black Sun's Zenith isn't the greatest boardwipe. Sometimes it can be mana-intensive to kill everything you need to. I may take it out and put Murder back in. The deck is short on instant-speed removal.

precociousapprentice, I just checked and both of our decks show up at the top of the list when looking for Queen Marchesa decks.

Sometimes tappedout is buggy. Perhaps it was just having another bad day? haha
