Isochron Scepter

Artifact

Imprint — When Isochron Scepter enters the battlefield, you may exile an instant card with converted mana cost 2 or less from your hand. (The exiled card is imprinted onto this artifact.)

, : You may copy the exiled card. If you do, you may cast the copy without paying its mana cost.

Thanks! I'll try to give out my thoughts in those cards:

  1. Vesuva - ETB copying a land may be a liability when it's made to copy Griffin Canyon. You'd want to put off on getting canyon out until you are confident you can pull off the combo and eliminate at least 1 player.
  2. Wings of Velis Vel/Shields of Velis Vel - these used to be in the deck. However, I've since moved to things that give changeling that are not necessarily single time use spells
  3. Elite Arcanist - you really want some specific cards to be in your hand when you cast this one. The problem I see is that Isochron Scepter is a lot better as it is not a creature but alas I had to remove it. It either becomes a removal magnet or you don't have a decent card to imprint it with
  4. To Arms! - we really don't animate a lot of lands to make this worth a slot
  5. Long-Term Plans/Dizzy Spell - these tutors used to also be in the deck. I just removed them in favor of having more card draw/filtering effects
  6. Cerulean Wisps - 1-mana cantrips may be good but I'd want them to do something else other than just replace themselves

Hope that helps!

Well, I've lost focus falling for homunulus eye cards... Going to scrap and redo this deck. Get back to the core strategy theme.

Evil Eye of Urborg Door of Destinies F Isochron Scepter Wings of Velis Vel Eye Gouge

We'll get there.

You could Enlightened Tutor and put some more 2 and under instants like Festival or Orim's Chant (side note: you can kick spells on the Isochron Scepter. You could also throw in Island Sanctuary and some of the new equipment creatures. Glory could also work well with your commander.

I have a mono-white voltron deck so see if anything else I'm using could be of help: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/isamuru/

Activating Isochron Scepter allows you to cast the exiled card. So you will get 1,000 copies of Brain Freeze.

So we have in play a Isochron Scepter and the artifact came in play discarding a Dramatic Reversal , imprinting it. What if we play the Scepter a thousand of times, and then we cast a Brain Freeze ? Does it work for milling the opponent's deck ? Thanks

You have 12 Instants that could go into Isochron Scepter without any other changes. Lots of value on recasting.

Spirit of Resistance and Blessing of the Nephilim on general principle with a 5 color deck.

Hey, nice list! I have an Orvar deck myself, and I'm going to have to try the Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter, that one I haven't seen before.
