I pick things up and put them down competitively. Sometimes those things are magic cards.

If we're trying to win through glacial chasm we have several options:

  • bounce it with words of wind

  • loop timetwister + narset's reversal with narset on the field while generating infinite birds/keeping them from having cards or doing anything (other opponents are dead by now, glacial chasm player needs to keep paying cumulative upkeep or dying, meanwhile they won't ever resolve anything)

  • just turn it off with magus of the moon or blood moon

You need whipflare like effects to remove mana dorks opponents have. If this is a more casual meta you can skip this. It also removes hatebears and some commanders, so it's still pretty good most of the time.

Baral reduces spell costs and loots on countering things, it also blocks Tymna.

By force is a meta call, I don't run it in my meta. Delay is fine, Pendrell mists is too slow, IMO

Hey grrKate,

I don't think you should be getting attacked enough for chasm to do much, and if it's lower power you will win too fast for it to matter anyway. Prismatic vista is good.

You want as much ramp artifacts as possible, without running the terrible ones. The problem with amber is it doesn't ramp into Jhoira, and is only enabled by Jhoira and Baral. Talisman is better.

Tabernacle isn't a must, it could be a board wipe if needed.

Windfall is the twister replacement.

Mana positive rocks are pretty important to the shimmer lines, one way to try it on a budget would be with at least 1 more cost reducer. You'd want etherium sculptor and more 2cmc rocks that come in untapped. You'd probably also want paradox engine to tie it all together. In budgetless it's win more, in budget it would be fairly useful.

There aren't good alternatives for twister/imperial seal type cards. You'd just find the next best cards for the deck. If you only have windfall, it may make sense to cut notion thief as well, unless your meta has lots of card draw and wheels.
