Opifex Deckling

Hello my name is Kuy

Three things I have learned that are very helpful for deck building:
1. Mutual exclusivity(types of Mana, types of target, tempo of even odd, etc.)
2. Hypergeometric distribution (likelihood of a card pull per draw per pull)
3. Strata ("in any order", "put on top of your library", or Deck thinning)
4. Moving permanents between zones for ETB recursion always plays on the timing between stack and zone (hand, grave, deck, exile)

The distinction between hypergeometric distribution and strata is the distinction between deck and library.

Basilisk Collar 702.2e If an object changes zones before an effect causes it to deal damage, its last known information is used to determine whether it had deathtouch.

So it had deathtouch on the battlefield.

Chord of Calling instant speed summon, and the spell stays in the grave. Great for Eternal Witness based combos.

Wake the Dead gives you a bunch of sacrifices, recursion, and blockers.

Sadistic Hypnotist got to be the best Sacrifice Outlet, and Whisperwood Elemental gives you a sacrifice creature that generates creatures. Cryptolith Rite can be a great fixer with heavy creature decks. Solemn Simulacrum Has an all around good use in this deck, and Entomb works with Eternal Witness as well as your commander.

I am looking for some good life gain and/or early utility with synergy with this sort of Kruphix deck.

I plan on swapping out some of the artifacts for the maybeboard eventually, this is just the direction I started off in. I like the Mill/Discard-Wheel

Entomber Exarch is good utility. If you can recur it, it discards land.

More field buff creatures like Angel of Jubilation and Sublime Archangel.

What I do is map out spells by exclusivity. The same way you decide how many land to put in the deck, you count up how many spells are exclusively cast with creature targets (same as 1 cmc spells when calculating mana) and you balance the number of creatures per creature exclusive spells. Then once I do that, to decide what goes, I look closely at my win condition and prioritize everything by win condition.

Doing that was really important for balancing creatures, discard, reanimation, sacrifice and flicker in my Ayli deck.
