Dark-Dweller Oracle Discussion

Back with a few updates:

  • Settled on Glimpse of Tomorrow as a must include. I feel like it fits the all-or-nothing and chaotic style of the deck so well, and I like the element of randomness. Taking out Dark-Dweller Oracle out for it, as all the recent draw additions make Oracle less necessary.

  • Temporarily (maybe?) taking out Dockside Extortionist for another basic. I don't own Extortionist yet and its price is...extortionate. Also I cut a land when I added Valakut Awakening  Flip and I think that may have been the wrong move. I've always been able to play with a very lean landbase, but that always meant 33 lands. I need to re-evaluate if that can go any lower after a bunch more games. If my new meta has a large number of artifacts it Extortionist will likely make it back in.

  • I think it's finally time to add Cavern of Souls . This is obviously a nice-to-have and not a must-have, but it should help with the big influx of new counterspells.

  • Considering re-adding a card that was in the deck very, very long ago with Gravity Sphere . My meta has a lot of flyers and it certainly helps, but I would have a hard time removing anything I am currently running.

  • Thoughts on Sol Talisman ? I like it, I just don't know that I need it.

Also hoping to clean up the primer over the weekend, especially to update categories with old info in them.

I'm not sure how exactly Quin plays yet, but I'm trying to come up with something with him too so I'll throw some cards I thought were interesting at you. Sentinel's Eyes seems decent, with Quin out it gives you two 3/2s for , which is pretty good. Battle Screech is just a generally strong tokens card so it fits with the token support, but also gives you a 3/2 (for free!). Same with Increasing Devotion , although thats definitely a lower power level just because of the mana cost. Prismatic Strands / Rally the Peasants are both also pretty strong cards that also will just throw in a 3/2 with Quin.

You have quite a few humans, so maybe throw in Bruna, the Fading Light  Flip, and if you want to meld, Gisela, the Broken Blade ? Bruna's solid on her own, but I might just be biased because I love meld. Angel of Glory's Rise too, depending on how many humans you end up with. You could also play things like Resurrection and Breath of Life , or even Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift . Angelic Renewal goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sac outlet, which you should probably have at least one more of. Ashnod's Altar is the go too, but I think its pretty expensive nowadays, so maybe Blasting Station , Dark-Dweller Oracle , or Grafted Exoskeleton

A bunch of the phoenixes seem decent, since they always return. I think the best ones would be Flamewake Phoenix , Rekindling Phoenix , and Skyfire Phoenix . Flamewake seems great since with Quin your spirits activate ferocious, the others I'd be more skeptical about.

Well I hope that's at least somewhat helpful lol

paytongamerI haven't gotten a lot of opportunities to play since Snoop came out, but I would say the vast majority of the time he has had a positive impact. I think it really hinges on how many Goblins someone is running. I would say 2 years ago with my ~15 Goblin deck it would have been terrible.

When it comes down to it, Snoop really should have been like 4 CMC, so at 2 it has huge potential, and even at its worst it is letting you dig sometimes, which is Red is rare in itself.

So far it's been nothing less than solid, and an easy include. I would cut Dark-Dweller Oracle before Snoop.

Thanks for the response! I like the idea of treasure keeper a lot. For the bolasses citadel, I just realized that u don't play Aetherflux Reservoir in your deck, so my mistake. When I was building garna, I thought of a more stormy/aristocrats way and play her with both Bontu's Monument and Hazoret's Monument, Thunderscape Familiar, Nightscape Familiar and Dark-Dweller Oracle it's a lot of fun to play, but in recent time I dumped a lot of weird things in the deck and am now rebuilding it. Ur take on the deck seems like a lot of fun, so i am gonna give it a try with a way more budget version :) Btw love the new commander legends card, hopefully I can get a hand onto one, without paying too much...
