Contingency Plan


Look at the top five cards of your library. Put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest back on top of your library in any order.

You may cast this spell as if it was an instant by returning an island you control to your hand in addition to its other costs.

Search your library for an instant card that can counter a spell. Put that card into your hand then shuffle your library.

"You always have an answer for everything, don't you Jace? Hey! I'm talking to you!"

"Oh, I'm sorry, Lavinia. I didn't realize that required one."

I wanted to call this Contingency Plan but it turns out that's already a Jace related card. Also I'm not %100 on the wording, I was inspired by Moonsilver Key to make a conditional tutor based around the effects of the card. If anyone thinks of a better way to phrase the ability I would love to hear it.

As far as I'm aware, Jace is currently chilling on Ravnica studying the, now inert, lithoform core. Create a Jace planeswalker for that.

Use Taigam's Scheming becuase it is cooler than Contingency Plan

Could I suggest Otherworldly Gaze instead of Contingency Plan. I know it only sees 3 cards on the top instead of 5, but for only one and at instant speed AND with flashback it's a decent rate for filling the GY. I love the deck and could definitely see it being at least functional in my play group!

This list is cool, I like the idea. Some cards you could try are the following:

Dakmor Salvage can put cards into your graveyard and can basically draw you cards with Ramirez. The same goes for Contingency Plan. Also, how about Oblivion Crown for additional commander damage with Ramirez? Finally, Shadow of the Grave seems really powerful.

MindAblaze: It's really just too slow needing delirium to work properly. It's bad when you don't have it and when you do have it (really unlikley to ever have delirium in a deck with enough hits for cocon I might add) your opponent is unlikley to have hand. I stand by Smallpox as far as that sort of effect goes, much more devestating at every stage of the game and stacks better in multiples even if it hurts you.

seshiro_of_the_orochi I'm not seing how Nahiri's Wrath could finish your oppoenent off. Were you thinking it could hit opponents or is there something I'm missing? Sanity Grinding is really bad in any deck, but in a deck that is (at least, but probably more than) 2 colors and dosen't have mill as a main plan, it won't ever preform well.

I'm curious, why Contingency Plan? It's very mediocre unless your deck needs some weird combination of miracles + graveyard shenanagins. I would never want to see it on a cocon hit and wasting 2 mana and a card to make sure I hit something with cocon sounds like a losing proposition. Wouldn't it be better to just play good sorcery hits (that maybe interact with your opponent) rather than this?

I think I might just have found some perfect cards for CoCo Jr.:

Nahiri's Wrath might be the best finisher option you have. And to draw enough cards to have it do lots of damage, See the Truth seems like made for this. We might be on to something here...

I kinda like where this is going.

Another possibly impactful card: Sanity Grinding. And for more value: Shreds of Sanity and Flood of Recollection. Also, there is a second Contingency Plan: Taigam's Scheming.

I'm looking through a list of possible cards

A card that might be pretty cool here is Contingency Plan.

Hi Carne,Taigam's Scheming and Contingency Plan'? This cards mill and they are useful for search Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or other cards.
