Ah, that's not a bad suggestion! I guess that in worst case you can always copy a Gilded Lotus or Thran Dynamo for that 1 extra mana. At 0.3 euro's I'll just buy one and try to see what I can cut for it. Probably Worst Fears

Thanks a lot ^^

Oh, and one more thing! Jace's Archivist is a bit of anti synergy, isn't it? Considering you want your opponents to discard their hands, they will always have less cards than you (if things are going to go according to play), and thus Jace's Archivist will draw them more cards than you. Same goes for both Whispering Madness and Windfall I suppose :)

Hi!

I see you run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, is there a reason you don't have Cabal Coffers to combo it with? It would certainly help with both Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire. Perhaps as a way to help tutor up those pieces, you could switch Dark Petitionfor an Increasing Ambition, as all the extra mana you get will help pay for the flashback cost? Or completely replace the card with a Demonic Tutor? Or perhaps do both! Tutors are amazing.

You also seem to have a lot of self-discard (if that's a word?), but few things that actually syngergize with self discarding. So maybe switch out some of the red discard-draw for more powerful blue draw spells? Monomania is also a great discard card that doesn't punish yourself, especially if you can help it. Though of course, I suppose you could always recast them with Kess, but one would think that it's better to keep cards in your hand for as long as you can, for extra value, rather than just discarding them? . I personally still think you have a disproportionate amount of discard compared to anything else, though.

Also, seeing as you have no way to combo with it (as far as I can see), Labratory Maniac seems like a decent cut.

Just my two cents, will be fun to see how the deck shapes up :)

Thanks, those are some really helpful suggestions. I had the lockets because I used to have a lot less carddraw, but you're right, Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot make a lot more sense right now. I just bought both of them a couple of days ago so it's an easy switch :)

How many counterspells do you think would make sense to run in a deck like this? Is 1 fine, considering you can often copy an opponents counterspell if they try to counter you, with spells such as Reverberate?

I did use to have Swiftfoot Boots in my deck, but I took it out for Lightning Greaves. Would it be better to run both for the consistency? I only have 3-4 other creatures worth removing, and my playgroup play very little spot removal

I'm working on slowly adding some better lands, mostly the cheaper shock lands and check lands for now. A work in progress, you could say

Again, thanks a lot for your help, I very much appreciate it (:
