Dual Casting Discussion

abby315 on Riku! Reku! Rikoo!

Here are my picks for weakest cards, without much justification except that for the most part I don't see them doing anything important with Riku, too expensive for what they do, or are too specific:

Spore Frog
Animist's Awakening
Desperate Ritual
Reshape the Earth
Sakura-Tribe Scout
Savage Ventmaw
Seething Song
Sunbird's Invocation
Pull from the Deep Volcanic Vision
Wild Ricochet
Hazoret's Undying Fury
Surrak Dragonclaw
Swarm Intelligence
Dual Casting
Volcanic Torrent
Decimate (since you need all legal targets, it can be awk to cascade into this one)
Amulet of Vigor
Trinket Mage
Murkfiend Liege
Wort, the Raidmother
Mana Reflection
Genesis Ultimatum
Cast Through Time

And I'm also recommending cutting all of your X spells that can be hit and missed with Cascade: Electrodominance
Genesis Wave

However, I'll echo what another commenter said in that cascade doesn't interact with Riku all that much. I mean, you can copy the permanents or spells cast off of Cascade, but you can't meaningfully copy the Cascade cards. You could choose to cut the Cascade package instead. It's up to you and what you want to play.

So that's my first evil pass at 30 cuts. :)

Tylord2894 on card:Kalamax, the Stormsire tapped by …

You will not get a copy from Kalamax.

The triggered ability on Kalamax contains an intervening-if clause. The condition for this clause is checked when the ability would trigger and when it tries to resolve. Since Kalamax was not tapped when you cast the spell, you don't get the trigger from Kalamax. Similarly, if Kalamax does trigger but is somehow untapped before the trigger resolves, the trigger will do nothing.

Important note, copying a spell doesn't count as casting a spell either. So copying a spell with Dual Casting will not trigger Kalamax either.

Hope this helps!!

Suppose Kalamax, the Stormsire is enchanted with Dual Casting. Assume he is currently untapped and you have not cast any instants yet this turn.
If you cast an instant spell, then respond to your casting of said instant spell by copying it by tapping Kalamax from Dual Casting’s ability, will you also get the copy from Kalamax’s own ability?
I guess the question it boils down to is does Kalamax’s first ability check if he is tapped upon triggering or resolving?

You need to add Endless Atlas as it is an amazing source of draw that should not be overlooked in red.

As for cuts, some you will be more hesitant than others to cut...

Anger - Bad haste outlet, needs to be in yard. Eh

Hanweir Garrison - Only synergy with hanweir, even then weak synergy. Not worth including

It That Betrays - Too costly, not impactful enough

Lightning Runner - Weak AF

Urabrask the Hidden - Better haste outlets in lands which are harder to remove, this is not needed

Star of Extinction - Too expensive

Dual Casting - Auras, especially with no way to abuse are just bad (2 for 1)

Chaos Wand - Fun but not efficient

Helm of the Host - VERY fun but too mana intensive. If you had more ramp, I MIGHT recomend it, but its very very winmore.

Saw the link and request for budget suggestions. I haven't played Melek but I am currently playing Mizzix of the Izmagnus and used to play Keranos, God of Storms. I'm a fan or UR all-around. The suggestions below are fairly generic since I'm unsure of how you want to win. Suggestions are based around cards I've used before in 60-card formats or in EDH with the previously mentioned legendaries, and should be under $5 each.

Spell-cost Reduction

Token Generators


Copy Effects

Thanks 5dollarMTG , I totally forgot about Guttersnipe ^^" . Never heard of Slither Blade before so thanks as well for that. I was thinking of dropping Dual Casting since it doesn´t trigger the pingers and from playing this deck for some weeks now, it hasn´t been THAT useful so maybe something extra to draw cards or an artifact to generate mana?

If you wanna go all-in on the spell copying i have a few things. You need cost reduction, in addition to Electromancer you have Baral, Chief of Cumpleaños , Arcane Melee , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , and Curious Homunculus  Flip for creatures. There're also the Medallion artifacts( Sapphire , Emerald , and Ruby ) and Jace's Sanctum is an enchantment that also has you scry 1 each time you cast an instant or sorcery. You can also look at As Foretold , Throes of Chaos , and Maelstrom Wanderer as ways to get "free" spells so you can use the mana that the spells cost to instead copy them. You're also going to want more mana acceleration so you can cast multiple spells or utilize multiple copy effects the best dorks are Rattleclaw Mystic , BoP , and Sylvan Caryatid and for 2CMC rocks you have the Signets( Izzet , Simic , and Gruul ) and the Talismans ( Creativity , Curiosity , and Impulse ). If you don't want to rely on artifacts for ramp since they don't synergize with Riku Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are pretty much auto-includes for G ramp spells, and Nature's Lore , Farseek , and Skyshroud Claim to get non-basic Forests into play faster, this does mean you'll need more non-basic Forests so you should get Breeding Pool , Stomping Ground , and Sheltered Thicket . Once you have costs down you can focus on the value you get out of your spells an easy way is looking at Twiddle effects like Rewind , Frantic Search , Snap , and Unwind , similar to Peregrine Drake and Palinchron , they untap their costs worth of lands so when you copy them or reduce their costs they start to generate mana. Now that you've generated a stupid amount of mana you need things to do with it so you have Epic Experiment , Expropriate , Time Stretch , and Rishkar's Expertise for value and you can use Fireball , Fall of the Titans , Finale of Devastation , and Electrodominance to just straight up kill people. Additional ways to copy spells are Dualcaster Mage , Dual Casting , Repeated Reverberation , Bonus Round , and Increasing Vengeance and Echo Mage , and some added value effects you can use are Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Sunbird's Invocation .
