Confounding Conundrum

Enchantment

When Confounding Conundrum enters the battlefield, draw a card.

Whenever a land enters the battlefield under an opponent's control, if that player had another land enter the battlefield under their control this turn, they return a land they control to its owner's hand.

Why not go with Ghost Quarter over Field of Ruin also this deck might benefit from more colors. Confounding Conundrum would be a really good add to this deck. It will slow down those Mana ramp decks tremendously and your opponents will be in a really bad spot when you target lands with your land destruction.

Profet93 I remembered a miserable Draw, Go Stasis + Forsaken City deck from back in the day. It felt like unexplored EDH space.

Land Equilibrium is anti green tech similar to Confounding Conundrum that the strategy could definitely utilize.

I'm working on a landhate deck in blue.

I think, instead of Ashiok, maybe Confounding Conundrum could do the same thing for a mana cheaper. It also gives you a Leonin Arbiter effect w/Ghost Quarter/Field of Ruin. If you're on the play and it gets out on your t2, that could completely ruin their game.

Then, there's Trinisphere.

I'm also looking at Squelch for cantrip. Other cantrips/draw: Remand, Censor, Repeal, and a 1 of Noxious Revival, just in case.

This gets away from what you're trying to do... But you could splash green for Choke. Don't play islands.

@Starsky2814 as soon as I get my decklist put together i'll link you to it, Confounding Conundrum is one of the big enchantments I also plan on playing in sync with Storm Cauldron . as mentioned the other support pieces i have going along with the cauldron to break that parity are things like Burgeoning , Rites of Flourishing (really nice with conundrum), Oracle, Azusa ETC. I LOOK AT IT AS NOT PLAYING LAND DESTRUCTION BUT RATHER LAND CONTROL

MLS91, I think Storm Cauldron is a fun card to build around. It’s great for hitting those landfall triggers and bouncing lands like Gaea's Cradle . With that said, it’s important that you have quite a bit of pieces that allow you to put additional lands into play, so you’re not setting yourself back with it. I’m considering on adding Confounding Conundrum to pair with it to really set opponents back.

Ancient Greenwarden 's triggered ability states "if a land entering the battlefield causes a triggered ability you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time" which an opponent's land triggers Confounding Conundrum which is under my control and states "whenever a land enters the battlefield under an opponent's control, if that player had another land enter the battlefield under their control this turn, they return a land they control to its owner's hand".

Does the Ancient Greenwarden 's triggered ability apply to Confounding Conundrum 's triggered ability or not? I'm not sure so I want to asking before doing anything with the potential combo.

Strionic Resonator is like a 2 mana version of lithoform. It can be tutored with Tribute Mage and Enlightened Tutor and is the best Brago wincon in my opinion (along with Lithoform). I also like running some cheap cards that draw on ETB to flicker with Brago like Confounding Conundrum and Omen of the Sea . Act of Authority has been a top-notch removal spell for me. I find that his biggest weakness is getting through flying blockers. Usually, someone has no flyers out at the table, but if you play one-on-one, I'd add some evasion. Traveler's Cloak and Unquestioned Authority give evasion and a card when flickered. I don't see this in a lot of lists, but I love Scroll of Fate . You can manifest any permanent from your hand, then flicker it and it returns to play face up. Cloudform and Lightform do this too, but off the top of your deck instead. Here is my list: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/3871820#paper
