Guerric on [Primer] Casting the Mythal

Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip is a great card which is a powerhouse in my Feather, the Redeemed deck. She certainly isn't bad here because, as you say, she basically makes Inalla's ability free. My main objection to her that I can't really think of something I'd cut to put her in. She isn't a wizard and doesn't really further any of our other gameplans aside from mana discount, and I wouldn't really want to tinker with the deck's other engines, which work well, just to try to slot her in.

The only real card at the moment that I definitely would like to put in is Patron Wizard, which you suggested some time ago. I think it would be better than Voidmage Prodigy and a real pita for our opponents, I just have never gotten around to ordering him because I am busy and always forget when ordering. It might be for the best because there is that new secret lair foil that looks quite cool, and with that printing the price is the lowest ever. There's probably also some tinkering with the mana base that I could do as well, but in general I'm mostly happy with the deck given those exceptions.

How do we feel about Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip> let's say we cast a wizard, she triggers and gives us a red mana. Inalla's eminence ability triggers when the wizard we cast enters the field, we pay our floating red mana and create a token of the wizard...

Thank you for your suggestions Jett2112. I think that my deck generally has a pretty tidy CMC curve already. The top-end is currently the 5 spells I have at 5 cmc. I'm not looking to Casualty 2 every time I cast an instant or sorcery, and haven't had too much of an issue popping off a few spells per turn beyond turn 5.

In defense of some of your suggested cuts:

  • Volcanic Torrent - One of the most recent additions to the deck. I've played it in my Prosper, Tome-Bound deck to enjoyable success. I recently added it here as a one-sided board wipe that can be copied, and also gives me the chance to Cascade a couple more spells out. This deck needs as many one-sided wipe options as it can manage, since it will have a weaker board state than most other decks in my play group.

  • Lier, Disciple of the Drowned - Ideally helps cover on the turn I'm going to combo off, but most importantly lets me flashback spells. In a pinch he can be sacrificed to Casualty 2. I've also considered Past in Flames in this spot, but preferred to have the body on board.

  • Storm-Kiln Artist - Shits out treasures when I'm spell slinging and copying spells. On the turns that I'm using Casualty 2 on Anhelo, Storm-Kiln can net me at least 2 treasures. Since his power grows with the number of Artifacts I control, he also is a decent ground-based chump blocker, or body for Casualty 2 if absolutely needed.

  • Archmage Emeritus - Like Storm-Kiln Artist, except can potentially draw multiple cards each turn, especially if I'm copying spells with Casualty 2 or any of the other copy effects in the deck.

  • Leyline of Anticipation - Potential opening hand shenanigans are the best upside here for setting up flash speed fuckery for free. I absolutely want the the capability to play all of my sorcery speed stuff at instant speed (Demonic Tutor, Jeska's Will, Torment of Hailfire, etc etc)

  • Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip - She nets every time I cast a spell, which can fuel even more spell slinging, especially on turns I want to pop off. At worst she's another body for Casualty 2. She also has the backside everyone forgets about, which can impulse draw as needed.

  • Atsushi, the Blazing Sky - A flying defender the majority of the time, but exactly the type of creature I want to throw into the Casualty 2 grinder. I most often pick the 3 Treasures on death trigger, but also like knowing the impulse draw is an option if needed. If I need to go aggro for any reason he also has Trample to push damage through other Flying creatures.

Your suggested additions:

  • Pulse of the Forge - If anything, I might replace Brimstone Volley for it. Not an addition that I'm dying to make.

  • Rapid Hybridization - I had this in the initial version of the deck, but replaced it with Reality Shift, because I like exile based removal more when I can have it.

  • Reanimate - I like Reanimate, just not necessarily in this deck. If I copy it, I don't want to be losing a lot of life, especially when I tend to have the softest board state compared to others, and will likely get hit the most. It is life loss I don't think this deck can afford much from having played it a few times. I think I opted to include Kolaghan's Command instead for the additional modal options. Yes, Reanimate is better for getting creatures directly to the battlefield as opposed to back to hand.

  • Lightning Bolt - A classic. I don't remember why I omitted it before. It could potentially replace Cabal Ritual, as Ritual has been pretty situational in my games so far.

  • Brainstorm - Something I probably omitted for another counter spell or something. Def something I'll reconsider if I feel I need some more top-deck set up.

  • Dauthi Voidwalker - I do like Voidwalker, and run some copies in my Isshin, Two Heavens as One, Prosper, Tome-Bound, and Burakos, Party Leader/Folk Hero decks respectively. I like Voidwalker a bit more in those decks, since those 3 want to play more aggressively than this one wants to.

  • Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer - Yes, this card is good. The only way I am playing this card is if I proxy it, or if I pull one from a pack. I am not spending $95 on just one card lmfao. I can also already hear my friends' sighs as Ragavan hits the table. Great card, just not particularly my taste.

Tap less, sling more! Try lowering the curve by taking out Volcanic Torrent and/or Lier, Disciple of the Drowned, Storm-Kiln Artist, Archmage Emeritus, Leyline of Anticipation, Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip, Atsushi, the Blazing Sky.

Replace them with that card we're trying, Pulse of the Forge and Grixis staple 1 drops like Lightning Bolt, Brainstorm, and Reanimate. Also I recommend finishing your playset of Pongifys by putting in Rapid Hybridization because unless you have something against frog lizards it's just as good.

Have you tried Dauthi Voidwalker or Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer? Those little guys give card advantage and can be used for casualty so they seem even better here than in most decks.

Fateful Showdown is indeed a upgrade and a fresh cards in hand i will definitely look for room in here.

As for Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flipi always play her for her creature side usually for the extra push for mana to keep going.

By the time I play Greater Good i have 1 or the other in my hand or on the field and just looking for my key pieces to the end game.

A bit of an "upgrade" to Gaze of Adamaro: Fateful Showdown. It would be better if it made the opponent also wheel, but you can't have it all.

A couple questions out of sheer curiosity: is Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip in just for the flip side being an amazing tool to dig for what you need?

And how much mileage do you usually get out of Greater Good? I don't see a ton of great target creators for it other than Beastmaster Ascension or Ominous Seas.
