Deceiver of Form Discussion

Hey, nice brew with new Atla.

Consider more haste?

With the expensive price manabase here with many Forest dual lands Nature's Lore is an upgrade for Farseek . Consider replacing Cultivate and Reach with two drop mana rocks: Talisman of Impulse , Talisman of Unity , Talisman of Conviction ? Consider Open the Armory or Stoneforge Mystic ? It's another tutor that can get one of Greaves, Skullclamp, Staff, Boots.

I think Regal Behemoth is a better Mirari's Wake or Zendikar Resurgent with Atla. In fact consider cutting both of these cards for Regal? It's a creature, gives you the monarch (draw) and it has the same land bonus ability. The +1/+1 that Wake gives all your creatures can be detrimental if you're trying to use Skullclamp to sac 0/1 Eggs which is an excellent source of both card draw and cheating creatures onto the battlefield. It's broken, anything that makes this interaction worse I wouldn't include.

Cards to consider cutting:

Are you interested in trying/investing in a set of tron lands and expedition maps? I've been brewing a budget variant of my personal $300+ modern Eldrazitron titans deck. I'd be shooting for less $100 budget and focusing around Deceiver of Form and Eldrazi Mimic , urza lands will probly be needed to get the deck rolling. I can post it up and link it here if you want to check it out.

I like that you removed the red from this and went with Aminatou, the Fateshifter .

Not sure how competitive you want to make this but here are some cards to think about:

Arbiter of the Ideal

Augury Adept

Bone Harvest

Candles of Leng

Conduit of Ruin

Conundrum Sphinx

Deceiver of Form

Djinn of Wishes


Also you might want to look into the possibility of snow lands and Scrying Sheets

You want to not have to rely on cards like Planar Bridge to make the deck playable. Also means you can play Endless One , Desolation Twin , Artisan of Kozilek and Conduit of Ruin .

Also, Deceiver of Form is fun.

No problem. Ancient Stirrings grabs any colorless card, not just creatures or artifacts. It may be counter-intuitive, but lands are, in fact, colorless cards. Even though they produce colored mana, they do not have a mana cost themselves, and thus have no color. So out of the top five cards in your library, you can get a land OR creature with Ancient Stirrings .

As for which large boys to pare down, it looks like either you've already lowered the numbers (for Reality Smasher !) so the only other ones I would cut would be perhaps another copy of Oblivion Sower , Deceiver of Forms and Void Winnower to make way for more copies of some of the smaller powerhouses like Thought-Knot Seer or Reality Smasher .

Maybe you have enough regular sol lands that it's not a big deal, but Deceiver of Form could be a solid eldrazi replacement for Sundering Titan and a cool combo with Myr Battlesphere

Deceiver of Form... kinda cool.

Tidal Force... might be even better than frost titan. Good for politics too.

Sphinx Ambassador... this card is ridiculous.

Platinum Emperion... why not.

Platinum Angel... and again why not. These last two could serve as your "lifegain."

Phyrexian Ingester... removal? Maybe... there's also Meteor Golem.

Nullstone Gargoyle... hilarious.

Galecaster Colossus... more removal.
