Spirits on Yuriko, Shadow of Fate EDH

Still unsure what to replace Doomsday with, was trying to figure out if there is an Intuition win? Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite seems to work with the high CMC on them, hmm.

Wondering if I should focus more on the damage aspects (above would help with that too) instead of Doomsday.

The 3 CMC tutors seem heavy, and the Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar gets lots of hate. Thinking maybe more ninjas to try and draw more.

Still needs tweaks, but can't figure out what to do.

Since Venerated Rotpriest says "Whenever a creature" and not "Whenever one or more creatures..." it'll trigger for each target.

It's similar to how Toski, Bearer of Secrets draws for each creature, but Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar draws once.

So yes, you could pair Rotpriest with multi target spells to rack up poison quickly.

Thats a good advice Grind but i think Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar is a more budget way to do this. And many of the creatures have evasive keywords for their own.

thefiresoflurve I took out Grell Philosopher and Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar because grell relied on an opp having an artifact and graz was only one draw per battle I only added Omniscience because jank love and Planar Bridge to search Bolas's Citadel and Omniscience

A few things you could consider cutting: As Foretold - this really works much better in decks that have more instants/counterspells, since it works on other people's turns as well. Additionally, the odds of getting this card out + having it survive long enough to be useful make it just not worth it. I've seen it played at my table and it's impact is considerably lower than something like Rhystic Study, which would make a great replacement.

Similarly, Omniscience and Planar Bridge seem too expensive to really justify using.

Grell Philosopher and Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar would be good replacements - Philosopher to turn your creatures into ramp/tech, and Grazilax for some more draw.

Wash nooooo!

: ) But seriously, looks like a fun deck. If you have enough artifacts Thopter Spy Network could be really good, and maybe Duelist's Heritage Oh and also Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar

Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar could be really great here. It’s another Cunning Evasion effect and some extra card draw. I’m thinking of thinking of building mono blue ninjas with them as commander

Optimator on Ellie and Becky's Box of Tinker Toys

Maybe Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar would be okayish? Doesn't help with your artifact or scry synergy, but it does help a little with the blink strat and reliably draws cards and slightly helps with the aggro plan by saving attackers
