Opifex Deckling

Three things I have learned that are very helpful for deck building:
1. Mutual exclusivity(types of Mana, types of target 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)

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

Said on Kru-si-phix...


There are a lot of great Kruphix ideas here, check out my maybe-board here Dream Horizon I like the Polymorph Kruphix interaction, and instants work perfectly with Kruphix's mana ability.

The alpha strike in this deck is to force scoop with Tidespout Tyrant and those who don't forfeit get a Fact or Fiction repeatedly countered for awaken cost with Scatter to the Winds until all my lands are creatures with infinite power and toughness. Zero cards in deck Fact or Fiction

Instants are nice because they leave the option to use mana or ramp it. Things like Beast Within and Polymorph are great because they have interaction with Kruphix, God of Horizons in a unique way.

Combining Winter Orb with Seedborn Muse and Opposition just clicked.

Deadeye Navigator for sure, it would be the Chord of Calling to infinite combo to compliment the Bring to Light for Ghostly Flicker.

Any ideas for stack manipulation ideas? For flash versatility, maybe something that stacks split second? Stacking multiple triggers with other spells etc.

Scroll Rack is a definite must, I love Intruder Alarm it seems like so much fun!

I am trying to find some odd or unique loops with Djinn of Wishes for my deck Dream Horizon also am looking for any green blue cards that trigger off "spell" or "cast" mutual exclusivity, or maybe in some hidden way otherwise noted.

I think maybe I should get Weirdings. I added some stuff to my maybe-board.

I think Brutal Hordechief is a direct route. I try to stick to cards that have win condition intrinsic to its control function.

How did you name it like that

They usually do their normal combat damage on top of their death triggered bolts, so it is a 4 combat damage without any mutually exclusive stacks.

Said on Derplings...


There is a lot of play off of "goblin" mutual exclusivity, with Boggart Shenanigans for instance I get 1/1 creatures with an extreme form of trample. Trample alone is fine, it plays off Claws of Valakut as well as Lightning Bolt for control with a potential to probe defenses. The tempo is playing up to three creatures by turn two and relying on them dying is more stable than relying on reinforcements from topdecking, it skips 4cmc and is light on 2cmc because my hand can stabilize with two or swarm out, and four can be used to mana dump, pickup equipment, rally with claws, or brace with Shenanigans. Claws also help stabilize outlier scenarios of high land and low cost. I am trying to incorporate a sideboard not so much change the main board. Preferably splash black for hatebears. And something for death trigger dampers like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

Said on Goblins Red to ......


First thing this is the deck Derplings I have the main board pretty well squared away, I am trying to concoct a way of using a play set of Auntie's Hovel in the sideboard for hatebears and maybe something for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as it cripples my die triggers.

I was curious if the target was valid before or after the stack resolved. Thanks.

If at the beginning of my end step I target Duplicant with Conjurer's Closet and in response tap Djinn of Infinite Deceits targeting Duplicant, will Duplicant still flicker?

Diabolic Servitude, Champion of Stray Souls, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip.

I have a mono black animator, unlisted.

Pyroblast Maybe a solution

Can Lens of Clarity stack on Countryside Crusher? To then shuffle?
