Alchemist's Refuge Discussion

How do you feel about taking the deck further into Pokémon territory? Lands can represent specific locations in Pokémon. Riptide Laboratory could be Professor Oak’s lab. Alchemist's Refuge would be Bill’s Laboratory (since turning into Pokémon sounds like alchemy). Prismatic Vista could be the Safari Zone. You get the idea.

vargaszm It combos as a ritual card as in you float mana in between each resolution of it as your lands come into play and then it does the same thing again giving you lots of mana. Its not amazing just a cool interaction i thought of one day. Also you can still play instants on each resolutions as well or flash out sorcerys with Alchemist's Refuge and Emergence Zone to still get some storm count as well. I know Thousand-Year Storm gets shuffled back in but with all the mana you float you can easily find it again with Thrasios, Triton Hero . Then find Expansion / Explosion or Aetherflux Reservoir while still looping spells with other Regrowth affects. Hope that helps if not lemme know.

enpc, Alchemist's Refuge requires continuous payments of mana, whereas the other two cards do not. As for your advice, I thank you, very much, so I shall now begin to replace the orrery with the leyline in every deck of mine that contains the color blue, which shall also save me money for the decks that I am building, as three out of the four contain that color.

Icbrgr, having both cards in a deck would be nice, but I cannot sacrifice another card to have both, unfortunately.

The primary restriction around whether or not you should run either card is less about colour restriction and more around deck archetypes.

If you're not running a draw-go style control deck, neither of the cards add a huge amount of value. And if you really need to give stuff flash, run Alchemist's Refuge .

Of the two though, generally Leyline is just the better option. Can come in for free and is fodder to cards like Force of Will . Not to mention most control decks will be super blue heavy, so the casting cost isn't an issue.

Here is some cards that i think are must have: Insidious Dreams , It That Betrays , Emrakul, the Promised End , Void Winnower , Krosan Cloudscraper , Consuming Aberration , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , Frantic Search , Lim-Dul's Vault , Putrefax , Dark Ritual , Bane of Progress , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord (great alternative wincon with Lord of Extinction [that is one instainclude too]), Toxic Deluge , Fathom Mage , Cavern of Souls , Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , Alchemist's Refuge , Pernicious Deed , Phyrexian Dreadnought , Hermit Druid , Rise of the Dark Realms , Reanimate . Those are of the hat that come to mind first when thinking whats missing here. Eldrazis are mainly for counters, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Putrefax are for swinging and Fathom Mage (another zegana) and Bane of Progress are for utility. Also you are in promised land of green ramp so i would take out heavy mana cost artifact ramps and change them to Mana Crypt and green ramp like Birds of Paradise and other 1 mana dorks. And if you want to dig for lands, Nature's Lore and Three Visits are just better Farseek s. Search for Tomorrow is also great. As enchantment ramp i would suggest Exploration , Burgeoning , Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl . I'm more than glad to answer if you have questions.

I'd recommend both Alchemist's Refuge and Maskwood Nexus , and with only 9 enchantments (plus clones, possibly) I'm not sure Eutropia does much work for you. Maybe replace it with Wonder ?
