Our love of the beautiful: it also is our shaping will. Alongside our "sense for truth", these two senses stand side-by-side; the sense for the real is the means of acquiring the power to shape things according to our wish. The joy in shaping and reshaping -- a primeval joy!

We can comprehend only a world that we ourselves have made.

Daedalus19876 Intuition is almost always board contextual, but 3 turns does guarentee you one for a loop.

I think $20 is better spent elsewhere than upgrading Sawtooth Loon to Hydroid Krasis.

Upgrade it when you can but prioritize tutors, fast mana, draw and counterspells about in that order.

Food Chain is one of the strongest infinite mana combos; the big other contender is Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal . It has a few notable upsides: it costs 3 mana total with some board presence (vs. 4), doesn't require non summoning-sick creatures or artifact critical mass, it doesn't use the activated abilities of artifacts or creatures and thus is not impacted by Cursed Totem or Null Rod, is a mana ability that is difficult to respond to in some contexts, is an enchantment which is difficult for black or red to interact with, etc. One of the biggest draws of the Food Chain builds is that single cards tutor both halves of the combo: e.g. Demonic Consultation exiles Eternal Scourge on the way to Food Chain . Food Chain also gets cantripping tutors for the exile creatures a la Manipulate Fate .

Isochron's main upsides are being able to use the mana for non-creatures, and getting outlet commanders with higher utility. Artifact tutors are much less powerful than the exile tutors, which means less tutor density overall.

They're both quite strong with both having slight tradeoffs that make them worthy of sitting around the same power bracket.

New Jace will likely see a good amount of play in Laboratory Maniac centric builds like Consultation Kess.

Unlife There's not a combo (besides value "combos" with bounce spells). It's an interactive piece, stealing an important or high value creature is a big swing. Steal something like a Zur and you can swing for Necropotence.
