Dig Through Time

Instant

Delve (You may exile cards from your graveyard as you cast this spell. Each card you exile while casting this spell pays for .)

Look at the top seven cards of your library. Put two of them into your hand and the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

Have you thought about running some of the various Opt and Portent variants out there? to get a Noyan Dar tigger and filter your topdeck seems good, I love playing them in Talrand, they're great early game when you kept a dud hand (I swear sometimes it's like I zone out, keep a bad hand and just regain my senses when it's time for my first turn), and they're good later when they're almost a free trigger.

I could be wrong, but I'd play Dig Through Time or Treasure Cruise over Glimpse of Freedom. I actually like both Delve spells in a deck that likes to cast spells.

If you like Propaganda effects, there is War Tax, which is similar, but can be used during any player's turn, so it's really useful if there is an opponent you cannot let swing, and it's very funny if there is an Archenemy that uses attacking. Another way to brutally discourage most decks from attacking (at least for a cycle or two) is Mass Diminish, a card that probably should see more play in decks that attack. I still can't believe they printed Diminish to last a whole turn cycle, not just that turn, it can also just get a player killed in addition to hampering their attacks.

Cool deck, I bet there have been some very, very memorable casts of Tragic Arrogance, that's really good in Noyan.

Hi magwaaf!

I'm currently testing Shadow of Mortality in place of Draco, but I haven't officially updated the decklist yet.

As for high cmc cards in general, adding more than a few of them hurts your deck more than it improves it. The reason being that we play a very low number of lands and ramp spells, so we can't cast anything more than 6-7 mana very reliably. Although it feels awesome to flip an eldrazi titan to Yuriko's trigger, we're not casting it anytime soon, so we're better off filling our deck with "pretty high cmc but still playable" cards like Consign / Oblivion, Dig Through Time, etc.

legendofa on Yorion & Meathook Massacre banned

Delve has three bans out of 27, but Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise both have bans in multiple formats.

Of the ten black-bordered Moxen, only Mox Amber, Mox Diamond, and Mox Tantalite aren't banned anywhere. This group includes five of the Power Nine. Is "cheap artifact mana" a mechanic?

Okay. So, I think you should really lean into the control/combo shell. This deck could use combos like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, with some added redundancy in the forms of Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Marauding Blight-Priest, or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion to close out the game. In order to accomplish this, I think you should cut a ton of the creatures and really lean into board wipes, control spells, and resource denial.

Things like:

Arterial Flow

The Meathook Massacre

Dovin's Veto

Spell Pierce

Necropotence

Ghostly Prison

Propaganda

Revenge of Ravens

Damnation

Wrath of God

Supreme Verdict

Time Wipe

Counterspell

Jace, the Mind Sculptor

You could also do cute stuff like Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity, giving yourself time to wipe the board again or go for the win with Peer into the Abyss. You should also consider taking a look at your mana base.

I'd suggest going for some fetches, checks, and shocks like:

Flooded Strand

Polluted Delta

Marsh Flats

Hallowed Fountain

Glacial Fortress

Watery Grave

Drowned Catacomb

Godless Shrine

Isolated Chapel

Deserted Beach

Shattered Sanctum

Shipwreck Marsh

Command Tower

You also have way too many plains right now. Even before you get the lands I just named, you should cut 6 Plains for 4 Swamp and 2 Island.

I know I've given you a lot of suggestions. I think if you tried putting a list together with all the cards I named, plus some of the bangers from your current list and you'd have a badass deck! Don't worry about trying to do all that right now, though. See which look most appealing/are in your price range and add those first. A lot of these should be long term goals!

Don't tell Rett I gave you so many suggestions XD

Feed the Swarm, Infernal Grasp and Pongify could be possible cuts for the suggested removal spells.

Cut a swamp for Geier Reach Sanitarium

I might be wrong about this but delve seems counter productive to the strategy. Cut Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time for the much needed Entomb and Frantic Search.

oof yeah havent updated this with organized play in mind since the ban announcement... Expressive Iteration is such a great card... i predict it will come back to pioneer eventually ... another thought is Light Up the Stage... bleh i will think on it.... Behold the Multiverse is really good too... might even be better than Dig Through Time for this particular build... good call!

DreadKhan on Budget Talrand EDH

You might take a look at Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time, both are potentially very strong on a budget. Two cards I like that are budget atm I think are Aetherspouts and AEtherize, you might not need both but one is a pretty nasty surprise for an aggro deck. Abjure is a nice counter for Talrand decks, to counter a spell and sacrifice a replaceable Drake is pretty nice. Saw it Coming and Wizard's Retort are also good counters to look at. I love seeing Talrand decks built on a budget, Talrand is a very solid budget option, and lots of fun to play!
