I-Rex on Big Bad Walls (Arcades)

Phule451 You just absolutely blew my mind. These suggestions are amazingly helpful and I really appreciate it. You are right about Dive Down and Drift of Phantasms . I really like Wall of Junk and have considered it before but never realized how great that would be with arcades and his triggers. I will replace Divination with Winged Words . Jungle Barrier is in the deck but I appreciate the suggestion. Fell the Mighty is a good idea because... wells it's commander. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is really good and I will probably replace Huatli, the Sun's Heart for it. Marble Titan is super good and will definitely go in. Enter the Infinite is there for the mass card draw and the combo with Laboratory Maniac but they are on the cutting board. Arcanis the Omnipotent is heavy on blue, but give me such great card draw that it is worth it. Arbor Elf is to untap the lands that give me extra manna like lands enchanted by Fertile Ground or lands that fix colours like ones enchanted my Abundant Growth . Things like Triumph of the Hordes and Command Tower were considered but were pretty expensive (he says with a Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur in his deck). Other Cards I'm considering are Mentor of the Meek , Wall of Runes and Dusk / Dawn . Thanks for helping me.

Well, I really don't see the purpose of Dive Down as since you don't seem to have ways to recur it. And Drift of Phantasms just seems too situational. I'd also replace Divination with Winged Words as it's a mana cheaper with any flyer out. As for the lands I'd say at least add a Command Tower for fixing.

Since you're focused on the card draw side of it i'm surprised not to see Jungle Barrier in there as well. Also Wall of Junk will allow you multip[le Arcades triggers. Another thing to think about is Marble Titan is just a beast in this kinda deck. Another non-wall friend of walls is Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive . Also think about Fell the Mighty as a great board wipe. you could use one or two more.

I don't really understand Enter the Infinite in this deck, just seems kinda outta what the decks doing. Arbor Elf is another great card in other decks, but don't really see the value here. Huatli, the Sun's Heart seems great in theory, but in practice falls flat. I'd keep Rolling Stones as it's always great to have redundancies. Arcanis the Omnipotent is kinda scary being three blue in a three color deck, I think you're gonna want that blue mana somewhere else.

Hope that is of any help to you, good luck with the deck and enjoy!

It's a little easier going three colors with this build because of how little it relies on white, but I see your point. I think Dive Down would go great in a deck with stuff like Electrostatic Field and Weaver of Lightning , but I really like the repeatability of the Splice on Blessed Breath . Getting it in hand means I get at least two uses out of it, unlike needing 8 deckslots for a playset of Apostle's Blessing and Dive Down .

Also not a arcane spell but I think Dive Down would be another easy option to cast that doesn't cost life. For budget manabases, going to 3 colors is usually pretty rough.

I like it but I am wondering if there are more spirit one drops we can include, right now we only have a 39% chance of drawing Mausoleum Wanderer in our opening hand. We can also consider stuff like Dive Down , Path to Exile , Spell Pierce , Curious Obsession

Love the idea! Worth mentioning that there is a project that involves Blood Briar, The Briar Bitch Project, here on tappedout.

The only problem I see is that Bloodbriar is very weak against removal. Either we can try and protect him, play things like Dive Down or Mizzium Skin , both of which I like or we can try and copy the Blood Briar with things like Miming Slime . I will keep thinking about it and tinker with it for myself.

Thanks for the inspiration :)

The only issue I have with pumping Thief is it usually gets killed as soon as it hits the board and with no spells to protect it ( Dive Down , ect.) it dies immediately. Kaya's Ghostform could help with that but it has to survive long enough to get it on.
I wish I had some Dead Man's Chest because I would use that. It will be rotating out soon so I am trying to plan ahead a little too. That's why I pulled my Vraska's Contempt and Psychic Corrosion and Hostage Taker out and looking for a good replacement for Walk the Plank other than Murder .
