Do you guys think Angel's Grace is worth giving a slot in the deck?

How is Greed working out for you? I have tried it numerous times but Necropotence seems to be better overall.

Polupus, very interesting suggestion. Added it to the maybeboard.

Thanks for the +1 (hit that upvote button. cough, cough lol)

The deck is in dire need of mana rocks like Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, etc., to help you establish your board presence quicker.

I also think you should cut down on high cmc counterspells and focus a bit more on efficiency. You can probably throw in Training Grounds to help with the activation cost of your commander and Duskmantle Seer.

Overall, I like the direction of the deck but I think you can streamline it a bit more to make it faster.

Posting my comments in a few minutes. My deck below needs some attention. It is my current deck and would appreciate any comments, suggestions and upvotes you guys have to spare.

Above is my Thrasios and Tymna com petitive combo deck which wins via infinite mana.

I am loving the suggestions and you are giving me a lot to think about. I'll be play-testing your deck to see how certain cards and tech might fit in mine.

I was looking at your deck a few days ago and the synergy was awesome! I prefer a more straightforward style though. This is probably why im trying to veer away from building around Paradox Engine too much. It is so much fun to use but it requires a somewhat developed board state to be really effective. With the number of combo-control players in my group, I dont think I have that luxury. Im still testing it out though. Maybe in time, I can learn to be patient and methodical. Haha!

October 16, 2017 10:03 a.m.

Good point. But instead of the Reservoir, Im thinking taking the LabMan out since its pretty useless outside the combo turn. What do you think?

October 15, 2017 11:53 p.m.

Thanks enpc. Ill try to find a slot for it. Any suggestions on what cards I can cut?

October 14, 2017 7 p.m.

No problem bud. Its not the first time its happened. Lol.

Youre right about the need to add draw engines. The target it to win within the first 3 to 6 turns but some games inevitably last longer. I am currently looking at cards like Dark Confidant and Phyrexian Arena. JGCA is nice but the effort it would take to successfully put it into play might be better spent on trying to win the game instead.

Ill look forward to hearing from you again if you do think of anything worth considering. Thanks!

Its already on the list bro

October 13, 2017 10:47 p.m.

The deck looks good. Considering the cards you already have here, wouldnt you rather concentrate on making the deck faster by being more combo-oriented?

October 13, 2017 8:14 p.m.

Hey, guy. Mind leaving a comment/suggestion/upvote on the deck posted above yours as per the rules of the thread? Thanks!

Since youre using Paradox Engine, I would definitely try to find ways to use and abuse Isochron Scepter. Maybe use Brain Freeze as your win con?

Future Sight can be so OP especially with Paradox Engine and a lot of rocks in play, but I get why you have second thoughts about using it. The Engine can substitute for the Helm in the Future Sight combo though. Also throwing out Mind Over Matter and Gilded Lotus (if its not yet there) for your consideration.

Lastly, not a big fan of the Mindslaver combo. IMO, its too clunky and unreliable considering the direction the deck seems to be taking.

It might be helpful to indicate what combos you are running in the deck description.

If you are planning on using Isochron Scepter, you might wanna try Dramatic Reversal with it.

In my old deck, I used Future Sight, Helm of Awakening and Sensei's Divining Top to draw out my entire deck and win from there. The same might be viable here, I think.

And since you said you were playing control, maybe try Torpor Orb and also Stasis?

Commenting on the deck above and posting my own. Could really use some suggestions, or just comments and upvotes.

Its a combo deck which could use some inputs regarding optimization. General assesments would also be great. Thanks!

Hey guys! Its been a while since I had the time to play again. Any chance I could get some help in my new deck?

As its main win con, the deck currently uses Auriok Salvagers + Lion's Eye Diamond to generate infinite mana. From there, it wins using Laboratory Maniac or Aetherflux Reservoir.

Im using Doomsday as a backup win con. Im thinking of replacing it with something that is easier to assemble. Would appreciate any help the group can provide. Thanks!

The Engine does seems a bit clunky. I haven't been able to use it much while play-testing it here. Winds of Rebuke makes sense but do you think Hurkyl's Recall would be better? I'm not totally sold on making this run around the Scepter as much as most decks do because it seems a bit harder to assemble compared to AS + LED or the Doomsday combo. I am still doing a lot of play-testing so we'll see.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll be keeping those cards in mind even those that I did not put in the maybeboard.

Midwest kindly check to rules for the thread. Thanks buddy!

October 5, 2017 3:57 a.m.

Those are very solid suggestions as always. Will definitely find a spot for those cards. Thanks man! It took me a while to get over the banning of Leo. lol
