Anticipate Discussion

multimedia on Rise of the Ur-Dragon

Hey, nice version of Ur-Dragon.

Court of Bounty is a new card that's good with Dragons and flying Dragons have the advantage of helping you to keep becoming the monarch. Consider adding some of the less expensive price creature tutors and an enchantment tutor? Dragonlord Ojutai repeatable Anticipate is also nice.

Because you have the Forest Triomes then land ramp spells that can search for a Forest are some upgrades and adding Ketria Triome would help.

Good luck with your deck.

Mr.Beaver on Competitive Jhoira Artifacts Deck (Under $100)

Really cool deck! I feel like having more draw power could be more useful than some of the 0 drops you have. For example, Preordain, Anticipate, and the other draw spells in your maybeboard could replace artifacts like Cathar's Shield, Briber's Purse, Orochi Hatchery, etc. There are also a few other 0s that might be worth looking into, like Everflowing Chalice or Mishra's Bauble. These are a bit more costly, but I think are still worth considering. Either way, this a really interesting build!

TriusMalarky on Collected Conjouring, CoCo's weird cousin

CoCo is instant speed. CoCo Jr. is sorcery speed. Also, you need sorceries that do enough to be worth playing on their own.

I'd recommend some sort of RUG control list. Anger of the Gods and friends can control the board, Ancestral Vision fills your hand up, and Crashing Footfalls gives you a win condition that doesn't die to your wrath effects.

Kari Zev's Expertise is good for dumping some of your suspend cards out of your hand and also stealing something like Uro and hitting extra hard.

Of course you have cards like Serum Visions and Flame Slash as general use sorceries, mostly to buff out your number of hits. See the Truth is Anticipate at worst or another draw 3 at best. Run Snappy to get the most value out of it.

A couple Cultivates are worth considering. Mana dorks are also pretty good, they can get you to your 3-drop sorceries early.

magwaaf How could I forget about that? Here it is.

Izzet Tempo - Tournament Ready

I will take one Island out for the Steam Vents. I will also add 4x Young Pyromancer, 4x Monastery Swiftspear and 4x Lightning Strike by taking out 4x Riddleform, 4x Roil Eruption, 2x Spikefield Hazard  Flip and 2x Anticipate. Also, I will take one Roiling Vortex out of the sideboard, and put one Ral, Izzet Viceroy in the sideboard.

Destroyerbirb on What are some under-rated or …

3 months ago

For example, Sorin, Solemn Visitor is my pick for an under-rated planeswalker. This Sorin is much stronger than people think. It's a token producer, a "short-term anthem" that lasts longer that most "short-term anthems", and a game ending card in one. It saw a lot of play during standard of it's time, and modern soon after that, but no longer sees as much play. It's good in pretty much every deck, from fast aggro or token decks, to control decks, even to janky life gain decks!

Now, Narset, Parter of Veils is over-rated. It's a worse Anticipate-on-a-stick, and has a static ability that's not important in a lot of matches. It only gets worse the longer it is on the field.

plakjekaas on Opposition Agent needs a preemptive …

Maralen of the Mornsong, Notion Thief, Narset, Parter of Veils, Omen Machine, Hullbreacher.

Jaymc1130 was just considering cEDH, and doesn't believe anyone would run a deck that includes Opposition Agent that wouldn't include all or most aforementioned cards.

It's true that a screw-you-for-even-trying-to-play-magic deck has plenty redundancy in pieces now. Yet, cards like Anticipate, Impulse, Sleight of Hand, Thassa's Intervention can still get around that. And your own interaction still works on your opponents' stuff, I'm not as worried about it in my playgroups.

RiotRunner789 on I_want_to_playallthedecks’s Thada Adel deck

4 months ago

It's not bad. I like it but would include 8 to 15 instants with cmc 2 or less. Even iso with Brainstorm or Anticipate works well.

You just don't want iso being a dead card and don't necessarily need artifact or spell tutors if you have enough instants.

Destroyerbirb on Izzet Tempo - Tournament Ready

abby315 For 1) and 2), I feel if I am running more threats, I won’t need to rely on Unsummon as a backup plan. I am considering Brazen Borrower and Magmatic Channeler for more threats, and have stuff against removal in the sideboard. Also, I don’t like mainboarding stuff to combat decks when I have a sideboard.

For 3) it’s the same thing about sideboarding as with 2). Also, with a little bit of 5), I can dig with Anticipate to find any copies that I need. I didn’t know Lurrus of the Dream-Den and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger was the deck to beat.

For 4) I am an aggressive mulliganer, so I don’t like it when I see a late game card in my hand.

For 5), I like Crash Through because at worst it’s a cantrip, and at most it’s the difference between me winning or losing the game. I like Anticipate because I have a lot of copies of it, and I don’t have to reveal anything. I don’t like running much removal, so it’s a no for Blitz of the Thunder-Raptor, and I don’t like Silundi Vision  Flip because I have to choose and reveal an Instant or Sorcery, which means I’m light on threats.

You really got me thinking, and I might take some of your options.
