Delver of Secrets

Creature — Human Wizard

At the beginning of your upkeep, look at the top card of your library. You may reveal that card. If an instant or sorcery card is revealed this way, transform this.

Delambrious, Chittering Genius

Legendary Creature - Human Insect Mutant


Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, place a Flying counter on a creature you control.

Each creature you control with a Flying counter on it has: "Whenever this creature dies, create X 1/1 Blue and Black Fly Creature tokens with flying, where X is this creatures' toughness."

"The Mad Gad Fly, perfected by flight, now seeks to share his new insight."


Inspired by the 1968 Movie the Fly, and our own Delver of Secrets  Flip and Docent of Perfection  Flip!

Make me another card that is a Legendary Version of a common card, like this one!

Icbrgr on Minor Misstep

@Gidgetimer Im sorry im just a little confused... for Chalice of the Void its MV is when in the deck/hand/battlfield/grave... but when you pay to cast it while it is on the stack it is recognized as a MV of so Minor Misstep would not be able to counter it in this case.

Is that correct?.... if so why would Engineered Explosives or Prismatic Ending be any different?.... Would Leyline Binding be treated as a MV spell if full Domain is active?

@wallisface that's actually a really good point in regards to answering something like W&6 when your on the draw... maybe your onto something with it being stronger in the late game than Spell Pierce and its more of a "keep your edge/grip/control" kinda card like to stave off a Fatal Push/Path to Exile/Lightning Bolt for a deck that is using somthing like Dragon's Rage Channeler/Delver of Secrets  Flip and something like Stubborn Denial doesn't quite fit?

Dead_Blue_ on Consider vs Gaze

Consider vs Otherworldly Gaze

Here’s the deck in question Mono Blue Fliptide

I like that Consider is a cantrip and multiple copies can chain together, I don’t like that it only digs 2 cards deep.

I’m thinking otherworldy gaze could be good since it potentially fills the graveyard faster for Murktide Regent and sets up for Delver of Secrets  Flip flips. It can also pseudo chain for Thing in the Ice  Flip with flashback. I don’t like that it doesn’t put a card into your hand.

Would really like to hear some outside opinions

Dead_Blue_ on Mono Blue Control

8 months ago

Yea idk, not saying your points aren’t valid but I’m not convinced. I’m a black player at heart so a little bit of damage doesn’t scare me. Especially when this deck runs Delver of Secrets  Flip and Thing in the Ice  Flip for a board state. What your comment does make me weary of, is maybe I need better grave yard hate? Any suggestions in that department?

Like I said I already have 2 U/W decks built in paper so making a 3rd really isn’t that appealing to me and I would assume you agree white is the best color splash for control?

Travenura on Izzet Aggro 2?

8 months ago

Hello SeekerofSecrets! First off, thank you for being the first to comment.

I love how consistent mono decks are with their mana base, which is why when I first started playing modern I played mono red goblins. I'm fine with going mono red is what I'm getting at. It's my favorite color after all! :D

I'd like to know more about why you'd include Lava Dart, Soul-Scar Mage and Dragon's Rage Channeler (is that Darcy?).

Isn't lava dart too weak? Even if it does eventually act as a Tarfire isn't sacrificing a mountain more detrimental than doing 2 damage total? Am I missing something?

Soul scar mage has prowess but it doesn't have haste. If you compare it to Delver of Secrets  Flip, soul scar mage needs a damage source from you, which means a card from your hand, most of the time. I understand that delver makes you lose the element of surprise, and doesn't have haste, but passing through your opponent's creatures with a 3/2 flier as soon as your next turn is pretty good, is it not?

Finally, dragon's rage channeler in this deck will only trigger if you have at least one of a land, instant, sorcery, and creatures. That's a lot to ask for is it not? Wouldn't you want to run enchantments or artifacts to get Dragon's rage channeler to trigger easily? Plus there's only 8 sorceries total.

P.s. Crash Through does let you draw a card, but is the trample really that good? Why not Dragon Mantle for example?

Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems like a nice inclusion. For me Blistercoil Weird and Delver of Secrets  Flip feels underwhelming in edh you can swap them for some more draw or since you like cipher even Triton Shorestalker and Mist-Cloaked Herald.

Since you asked for card draw suggestions the main staples are X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith,Pull from Tomorrow, 4 CMC type Fact or Fiction / Steam Augury or Behold the Multiverse stuff and cantrips like Brainstorm, Ponder etc. There are also wheels like Windfall. Have you checked Scryfall? Their search engine is rather easy to use.

I still haven't build my Niv deck but I plan to put in the transmute package to find me the three combo pieces

Dizzy Spell for Curiosity

Drift of Phantasms for Tandem Lookout or Ophidian Eye

Hope this helps. Cheers!

Delphen7 on Viability - mono blue wincons

9 months ago

I ran a mono blue aggro list for a very long time that's decently powerful, the win con was Nivmagus Elemental. It involved lots of free spells like Snapback, March of Swirling Mist, Disrupting Shoal and Flusterstorm to grow Blistercoil out of nowhere and some other aggressive critters. Judge's Familiar, Thing in the Ice  Flip, and Delver of Secrets  Flip are the most notable of those
