Into the Roil Discussion

i've been playing with Thousand-Year Storm + Manamorphose + Narset's Reversal

i've been chatting on the discord server, Winds of Rebuke and Into the Roil or Blink of an Eye are good options that come with a wincon with a dockside blink line

And that's really useful! thank you!

GoPatmyhead I have not included any of them so none of them are MUST-INCLUDE. Cards that only get good if you can stick Kess don't make the cut for me.

MrBodi88 I don't think I will be adding Stunning Reversal to this deck any time soon. It's terrible on its own and needing to have the mana to cast that as well as Ad Nauseam is a steep hurdle, especially considering if I am trying to resolve a Naus I would ideally like to back it up with some countermagic. Cyclonic Rift was swapped to Into the Roil because it can't bounce your own stuff and Dockside Extortionist makes that a big deal. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is an objectively powerful magic card but the CMC for the effect and the benchmark Grixis sets for card quality generally leave him outside of my 100 in cEDH lists. In your context of working towards completion it sounds like a fine include.

@MrBodi88: Into the Roil has the big upside that you can bounce your own Dockside Extortionist back to your hand to make a ton of mana, which you can't do with Cyclonic Rift. You could play Winds of Rebuke instead of Into the Roil. Cyclonic rift is only more favorable in very grindy and stax heavy metas in my opinion.

My personal opinion is I will also remove Into the Roil and add Cyclonic Rift - just has more utility. Paying 4 just so you can draw a card is not really worth imo

Brogan54 on Oloro, Ageless Ascetic

My recommendations :

I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.

Grind thanks for the tips! They're a lot of help and I just wanted to tell you my Chemister's Insight on a few of them (see what I did there). First, once I get my hands on one I'll be replacing Into the Roil with Cyclonic Rift. Second, I don't want to run Fact or Fiction because it puts cards into hand rather than drawing them, and this deck revolves around mass card draw. Third, thank you for bringing my attention to Twincast, that's gonna be a good addition. The rest of what you said can probably go into a sideboard except for Underworld Breach. Since I can recast a lot of my spells from graveyard, I don't have room to exile them. Hopefully, this gives you a better glimpse of my ideas for this deck. Cheers indeed!

cool deck!!!
check out Impulse over Anticipate.
maybe Reverberate or Twincast over Doublecast. Repeated Reverberation is another option.
maybe Pull from Tomorrow over Stroke of Genius.
maybe Ghost Quarter over Field of Ruin,
maybe Shivan Reef over Highland Lake,
maybe Brainstorm over Radical Idea,
maybe Fact or Fiction over Chemister's Insight,
maybe Capsize over Into the Roil.
and some other options just to consider: Underworld Breach is great recursion. The Immortal Sun and Well of Ideas are kind of high mana options to give you one-sided more card draw.
and i've always really liked Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall, Izzet Chronarch, for those Relearn-type effects. but probably dont need to run all 3 as that is overkill.
anyway just some thoughts, hope it helps!!!
keep having fun! Cheers!

In my experience, Lotus Petal, Miscalculate, and Brainstorm are really underwhelming in this format. The conditions that make them great cards in other formats just aren't present in PDH most of the time.

Winged Words and Secrets of the Golden City are generally much better than Brainstorm.

Doublestrike spells are good enough that I'd consider running more of them, like Uncaged Fury.

Into the Roil is outstanding, I'm glad to see it on your list. Did you know there is another one?

Confound is a tiny bit more versatile than Keep Safe, since it can shut down your opponent putting auras on their stuff. Probably wise to run both.
