Font of Mythos Discussion

I would cut Howling Mine , Font of Mythos , Kami of the Crescent Moon , and any cards like that I missed (I do not include Teferi's Puzzle Box on that list since it doesn’t provide your opponents card advantage). One of Nekusar’s big problems is that you are providing your opponents extra cards they can use to stop your victory. These types of cards are not fast enough - they provide only incremental damage when you want to be hitting for huge damage with wheel effects.

Here are some other cards to consider:

  1. Curiosity combos with Niv-Mizzet to quickly close out games. Helm of the Ghastlord also combos with Niv. Placed on Nekusar when a wheel effect is used, it locks all your opponents out of playing anything other than instants, since they’ll discard their hand to the wheel and then be forced to discard anything they drew.

  2. Glistening Oil and Phyresis drastically decrease the amount of damage you need to do in order to win.

  3. Sigil of Sleep turns every wheel card you play into a mini- Cyclonic Rift .

  4. On that note, Cyclonic Rift itself is an amazing card you should include.

  5. Consecrated Sphinx is a whole lot of value here.

I like those suggestions!

My particular meta isn't too artifact/enchantment heavy, but Krosan Grip is still a great card!

Personally I'll keep Divine Reckoning over Hour of Revelation for now, I'm still testing. But I play in big groups and a three mana "screw you" is definitely a thing! Unfortunately it hits my permanents as well, so that puts it as a maybe for me.

Rites of Flourishing and Font of Mythos are great, and I can definitely see using the Font over Temple Bell . If there's one thing this deck loves, it's redundancy!

Depending on your meta, you might wanna consider Krosan Grip to prevent combo players from going off.

Another thing to consider is Hour of Revelation . Sometimes, you've just got to hit that reset button, y'know?

Also, if you're going with the Howling Mine turbo fog shenanigans, you might wanna run Rites of Flourishing and Font of Mythos for redundancy.

Happy gaming! :)

SerBorksaLot on Nekusar, the Eraser of Minds

I'm curious how this has played, I've got a similar deck but didn't include a control element like you did with the Dramatic Scepter. I can see that it supports the Nin, the Pain Artist and Exsanguinate finishers. I'm just curious how often they come up.

Things I'd take out: Barbed Shocker I originally had it in, but there was rarely a situation where I could get it through AND a damage effect was on the board. It feels on brand, but it's hard to make work without adding some better evasion to it. Notion Thief and Hullbreacher There's better ways to do both of these effects. Try Cabal Coffers for mana, and Fevered Visions for card draw. When your opponents see that you're running Nekusar, they'll try to play as many spells as possible to quickly empty their hands, so move towards things that will keep their hands full Font of Mythos Price of Knowledge Forced Fruition.

In terms of strategy, IMHO, I think that you're split between Wheels and big mana finishers. I think you need to focus on one to do it better. If it's Wheels: Add Dragon Mage, Charmbreaker Devils, and Hive Mind is very difficult to deal with when it lands. If it's big finishers: Torment of Hailfire and Mind Grind complement Exsanguinate.

Good Luck and happy hunting.

Mice deck. I'd swap some of your mana rocks for signets instead. You got 3 signets available, so remove Mana Geode, Prismatic Lens and Mind Stone (you won't need the draw ability in this deck). No Sol Ring?

Lightning Greaves would be far better than Whispersilk Cloak.

Have you considered Jace Beleren? Anvil of Bogardan and Font of Mythos are great choices to increase the draw power of the deck.

Jace's Archivist is another wheel on legs. Kederekt Parasite is another Underworld Dreams. Seizan, Perverter of Truth is another Mine. All of them creatures that can help you fasten the game.

Ophidian Eye is yet another Curiosity while Sigil of Sleep works greatly as spot removal and Vampiric Bite would be quite nice if you find yourself low on life.

Winds of Change is another effective wheel at a very low cost that, has a plus, doesn't let your opponents get back the cards they already discarded. No drawback there. :)

MrKillStar on Angels Brought The Apocalypse

I really like Angel themed decks, but the only problem is, most angels are just super expensive and looking at your deck list, there is just no ramp, except very few cards... Im just gonna type some cards, maybe you'll like some, most likely not all of them, just so you have some larger pool of cards to choose from. :)

Myriad Landscape/Burnished Hart is alright; Land Tax is just auto-include in most decks; Caged Sun is also good, but you need to ramp into it somehow; Sword of the Animist is ok, but you need to swing with a creature and there are no Haste enablers (not even Lightning Greaves.

First of all, I would cut exile board wipes, since it just hurts mono-white without ramp the most (Play of the Game and Perilous Vault). You could hold priority and cast Teferi's Protection, but.. dont really know about that... :D

Sunscour should have really good place in mono-white deck.
Endless Horizons - is something like budget of Land Tax, but can also help to thin your deck after you get enough mana on board.
Planar Bridge,Planar Portal,Thran Temporal Gateway,Belbe's Portal,Cryptic Gateway - to either search for anything or put big stuff directly on board. Urza's Incubator should be there to reduce mana cost of your big angels.

worldslayer -> protect your creatures and artifacts: Show

Card draw in white isnt the best, so using artifacts is really helpful, both for ramp and card draw: Show

Some mana rocks for sure: Show

Some ramp with white creatures and spells: Show

Personally I like Font of Mythos over the Well of Ideas.

Cheaper CMC, no color restrictions, and while their effects are different they're similar enough that I would say Font is the value pick.
