Isochron Scepter Discussion

Massacar on Marwynn, she'll do you right

If I may make some other suggestions, I would really consider dropping the Isochron Scepter , you don't have enough instant spells (or ways to tutor for them) to make it useful. Perhaps swap in an Elvish Clancaller in it's place.

Some other additions I would suggest depending on budget, Finale of Devastation , The Great Henge , and Beast Whisperer (instead of Primordial Sage ?).

One thing to note about Ink-Treader's ability is that it requires you to play the card for its ability to trigger, so bouncing a copy of a spell off of Beamsplitter Mage and targeting Ink-Treader Nephilim will not activate its ability again. There are work-arounds, such as God-Eternal Kefnet , which allows you to cast a copy of an instant or sorcery, and both the original spell and the copy can target and activate Ink-Treader's ability. Isochron Scepter is a great way to reuse an instant, but really infinite mana with Dramatic Reversal is the way to go.

The cantrips are an excellent choice, rip through your deck and have every answer and wincon in a few turns.

Omniscience_is_life I like that! Mono-blue could use something flavorful but still good. Too many mono-blue decks are just about Isochron Scepter -ing yourself to victory. Plus you could play Omniscience !

DonaldFuck Yeah, I have a lot of triple blue in this deck, and even double red can occasionally be tricky, So I've left if for now. And while Burnished Hart can also be fetched with Trophy Mage since its an artifact creature, it does come online slower, which probably isn't ideal for the mana hungry nature of this deck, so I've left Chromatic Lantern for now and may keep it that way. Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal is always good, but it goes better in my Mizzix of the Izmagnus spellslinger deck where I usually win with massive x-spells, and I've been thinking about adding it as an alternate win con for Reiterate there.

Martyr of Sands , Ranger-Captain of Eos , Judge's Familiar , Blossoming Calm , Isochron Scepter . If you go with Isochron Scepter you might also want Angel's Grace . You might want to upgrade your mana base. Gideon of the Trials is good. The deck looks great though.

Hey TeeWHY_100, thanks for stopping by, appreciate the comment / suggestions.

Nevinyrral's Disk is a cool card, especially with Osgir, but I've chosen to neglect any board wipes in this deck because they tend to draw out games. Additionally I'm not running Isochron Scepter , and wouldn't really know what two cards to cut to add the combo.

love this deck! one addition worth thinking about is Nevinyrral's Disk

Isochron Scepter imprinted with Boros Charm and a Nevinyrral's Disk on the field allow us to wipe our opponents board every turn for three mana.

Gidgetimer on Garth one-eye's "create a copy"

4 weeks ago
  1. Without the release notes there is not yet a definitive answer. However; applying current rules in a way that would be logically consistent, if you copy a permanent spell the permanent the spell becomes is a token. If you create a copy of a permanent card and then cast it as a spell it would make sense for the permanent the spell becomes to be a token.

  2. Copying a card is not copying a spell. Magecraft will not trigger from creating the copy of the card. It will however trigger from you casting the copy. Much like how Isochron Scepter triggers Magecraft once per activation, when you cast the copy, Garth One-Eye will trigger (up to) once per activation, when you cast the copy.
