Azor's Gateway  Flip, Strata Scythe

Have you considered more equipment? If you boost to 20, nuke something then move a sword or something to another creature you can drop below 20 and then boost back up again for another shot.

One REALLY annoying thing you can do with Sen Triplets is steal LANDS. Especially really fancy lands with special abilities. Boomerang, Capsize, Churning Eddy, Reality Strobe, Tradewind Rider and Eye of Nowhere. (I see you already have two of those in the deck)

Vega, the Watcher is decent card draw

Azor's Gateway  Flip once allowed my son to play every card in the hand of a guy playing Slivers.

Is Realmwright only there to fix mana? I thing you could do better with another Manalith clone like Spinning Wheel, Mana Geode etc. Maybe trade out a couple lands for Transguild Promenade and Rupture Spire.

You have about 5 creatures that would benefit from a Heartstone, including your boss.

My favorite card with a deck that can always spend mana on something is Azor's Gateway  Flip. Jenara or Shalai, Voice of Plenty would be game enders with that much mana to spend of counters.

The phrase "converted mana cost" has been replaced with "mana value". Basically, it's the total amount of mana shown in the top right corner, ignoring colors. Something that costs , something that costs , and something that costs all have a mana value/CMC of 3, since they all require three mana to cast.

For Azor's Gateway  Flip, you need to have, as an example, cards with MV/CMC 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 exiled. As long as five different mana values have been exiled with Gateway, you can use the full ability.

First off, converted mana cost is basically just turning all the colored mana symbols in a cost into colorless ones. So a card that has a casting cost of has a converted mana cost of .

What Azor's Gateway  Flip is asking for is five different converted mana costs: so thus if you exiled cards with costs , , , , and , you would transform the card--because you had 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

Hi Plainswalkers, I'm use to converted mana costs adding all numbers together, but Azor's Gateway  Flip says different mana costs. Is this asking for 5 different mana colours or what? Would 1 single card of 10 converted mana do or does it require say red ,red ,green ,blue and colourless?

Alright, I swapped out:

Solitude for Giant Killer

Azor's Gateway  Flip for Cartographer's Hawk

A Plains for Winding Canyons

And am testing Binding Mummy in place of Monologue Tax . I like the idea here, binding mummy can do some serious work with God-Eternal Oketra out. Stopping attackers, tapping artifacts to lock people out of artifact effects or mana, etc. Maybe i’ll end up not utilizing it since the deck has become so much less reliant on Oketra, we’ll see.

Thinking that I don’t like Solitude as much as i’d hoped. It always feels lackluster in hand, either too expensive to hard caster, or I don’t have a white card in my hand that i want to exile.

Cavalier of Dawn feels more meaningful as creature based removal, and that still costs more than is comfortable. It was replaced by Skyclave Apparition . But truth be told, i kind of want it back. I don’t like where the deck is at currently with removal.

Similarly, and part of the reason Solitude always feels unplayable, is I still feel like the deck needs more draw power. Sure, there are a few great engines, or some repeatable effects attached to creatures, but I don’t feel like it’s accessible when i need it.

Long story short; Solitude and, as much as I hate to say it and NEVER thought I would… i think Azor's Gateway  Flip are on the chopping block. I love azor but, like solitude, and as the deck gets more tuned, exiling a card is a very steep cost.

Omniscience_is_life any suggestions on additions in the (preferably creature based) removal, or draw/card advantage department?
