Said on Jeskai Cycle...

#1

Thanks ModernT1mes,

If it were me, I would take out Lightning Rift and Drake Haven for Drannith Stinger and Glint-Horn Buccaneer. I personally am not a fan of cards that only do something if you pay a tax on something else (if that makes sense). On their own, Lightning Rift and Drake Haven do nothing. You make an initial investment to get the enchantment into play and then have to pour more mana into it just to get anything. Hoofprints of the Stag falls into the group as well. I'd replace it with something else.

Chromatic Orrery feels out of place here. I'd recommend swapping it out for Alhammarret's Archive.

I'm not entirely sure what your game plan for Fires of Invention and Unpredictable Cyclone are, but I'd swap both of those out at some point in the future. Possibly for Shark Typhoon and Rielle, the Everwise.

Some recommendations:

Alhammarret's Archive: Works like Teferi's Ageless Insight, and doubles lifegain as well.

Drannith Stinger and Glint-Horn Buccaneer: Don't underestimate free passive damage. It may not seem like much up front, but it adds up over time.

Rielle, the Everwise: You may not run a bunch of instants and sorceries in your deck to get much for buffing her, but her passive card draw is really nice (especially with draw doublers).

Hollow One: It's a free creature (sometimes). Also cycles so you're not stuck with it if you don't need it.

Dream Trawler: I absolutely hate this thing, yet I believe it deserves a spot in a deck like this.
