Ancestral Recall Discussion
3 months ago
4x Drown in the Loch looks like a must here, if you cut the Dauthi.
I don't understand the 1x Into the Story with only 2x Visions of Beyond when the latter is just so much better. I'd cut it and replace it with a third Visions (honestly a fourth Visions is probably worth it, Ancestral Recall is broken even if its conditional.
The Dauthis are a total nonbo with a lot of your cards. Honestly, I don't think its worth keeping them since they prevent you from running Drown, shut down Crypt Incursion, Extirpate/Surgical, Into the Story, Visions of Beyond, etc. It feels more like a sideboard card for grave hate.
Tasha's Hideous Laughter is the main reason mill is even remotely viable nowadays. Not running a single copy seems very dubious.
Oboro, Palace in the Clouds is a nice one of land to help you reliably trigger the crabs.
Field of Ruin is nice to force opponents to search, and with tron making a comeback 3 copies might be worth it over the more common 2 copies. But with all the restrictive manacosts like Counterspell, Archmage's Charm, Fractured Sanity etc. running a playset feels like too much.

I really like your build. Going to link mine now and then get back to yours Bruvac the Grandiloquent Millage Pillage
You have some pet instant/sorcery cards that I think could be upgraded for more on theme carnage:
Sakashima the Impostor Bruvac #2
Retraced Image this is my hidden tech in my list but it is statistically better in yours!
Archive Trap it's EDH. Everybody tutors. Mill 26 for free.
Long-Term Plans to get your engine pieces and all the cool cards I suggested ;)

Er, three-card card advantage. Okay, the ideal case is actually an Ancestral Recall in Red with a 2/1 body. This might be more pushed than I realized at first. This can be flickered and chained together very easily. Well, yeah, probably, not that card exactly, then

It's the kind of card that does put in the work, but it's gotta be built around correctly(much like any card draw)
Necro is used sort of as a combo piece but also as a massively effective draw engine.
Arena is used to guarantee you two cards played per rotation, which is great . . . if that's your gameplan. It's also really underwhelming in EDH where it's trivial to assemble ways to draw 2, 3 or even 4 extra cards a rotation.
I'll take a cEDH perspective here. In cEDH, this is unplayable, because
The only way to turn one it is with Dark Ritual
You'd rather play Necropotence turn one with Ritual
You could also play Dark Confidant that can almost always come down turn one and at worst turn two
It also compares badly to every other good card draw spell:
Rhystic Study can come down turn one with Crypt and turn two with basically every other rock. It also draws absurd amounts of cards.
Wheel of Misfortune or any other wheel allows you to jam a bunch of rocks in play and then reload to 7 on turn 1, meaning you just pull ahead pretty effectively.
Sylvan Library is just good.
It's good, but not THAT good.

Hey Jormngunder2053, +1 m8
Check out my Zada secret commander (w/ Tazri) for some random tech... 5c Zada/ Cantrips.
You might like Progenitor Mimic in there...
Silverfur Partisan is my favorite combo with Zada (lots of wolves)...
...The Zada/Ink-Treader package is very strong. Think of your cantrips as improved Ancestral Recall ...
When running a budget land base, avoid double pips unless they win big. Keep it mostly green and run all the 2 drop green ramp and you're good to go. I like the 2 drop ramp-bodies because they combo with Zada.
Cheers and gl.

I just saw Body of Research from Strixhaven and it seems very akin to Blightsteel Colossus as a control finisher. Not only that but it’s less slot intensive. Big Beaty finishers don’t need all the fancy wording of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn . We just need the tempo of one lethal whack. I’ll be exploring with this card alongside potent tutors like Mystical Tutor with powerful draw spells Ancestral Recall and Brainstorm . We’ll see if Body of Research has the power to make it.

cheffireball Time Walk isn’t necessarily terrible but you have to be mindful that you are resetting your Storm count when you take that turn. I’ve still used it with Mind's Desire in conjunction with Day's Undoing but that works more because the efficiency of wheels.
Brainstorm is more about the advantage over the selection. Treasure Cruise just isn’t going to be cheap enough consistently enough to be as efficient as we need. Brainstorm is just a draw 1 but if it lets us go three deep and we can ring off something like a Mind's Desire or Paradoxical Outcome , we can usually just go right through whatever we have our back on top. There’s just nothing that’s going to come close to Ancestral Recall .
I really ought to set up a discord for it. I only play it on untap. This is as far as my outreach goes on the matter with what time I have. I ought to look into it though. As much as the concept of the format may be viable, the support structure for it may not be. I don’t know if a few discords is going to do anything real and I don’t know that it needs to. What I find on untap is serviceable enough and maybe keeping formats grassroots like this is probably going to be better for the concept itself. I will look into the discord.
