enpc on Isochron scepter and dramatic reversal …

1 month ago

Monomanamaniac: Unfortunately because you are casting spells, it does mean that dramatic scepter is suseptible to both ability hate but also storm hate, which has gotten me a few times before. But in a vacuum, it's one of the more compact combos.

I think the thing which makes it so strong is that it's such a low cost to entry on the combo - you only need 4 mana available to play and activate scepter which is super low. I used to run Tooth and Nail for Deadeye Navigator / Palinchron (with a bit of Rune-Scarred Demon enabling) in a Damia, Sage of Stone list which was good, but you always had to generate so much mana to so you could combo out with counterspell backup. With Scepter, a Mana Vault or Grim Monolith basically pays for the combo by itself and makes you mana positive.

The other thing I like with the combo is that there are replaceable pieces for it. I run the combo in my Thrasios, Triton Hero deck (alsongside Tymna) and I have Sigil Tracer who with Thrasios lets you copy Reversal on the stack. You can also use Nivix Guildmage or Izzet Guildmage in this role. But I was even toying with hte idea of using Isochron Scepter + Vitalize + Karn, Silver Golem as a janky combo in Selvala, Explorer Returned. I know it's not a great combo but it shows how you can adapt it so easily.

mostly just fond memories of the block, but Hana Kami and Death Denied was a solid rock base back then, recurring all your threats endlessly, and triggering arcane / spirit triggers each time.

the other fun one was with ravnica, Izzet Guildmage + Lava Spike + Desperate Ritual goes infinite on 6 mana. (cast lava spike for , splice for , copy for , use copy's to copy original, rinse / repeat)

copying spells was the most fun bit for me - nuking out a Paladin en-Vec with Reach Through Mists spicing Glacial Ray was priceless. Spice's big edge over kicker was that it wasn't an additional cost, and therefore not reflected in the CMC of the spell. with it, you can bypass Gaddock Teeg's decree and dump all mana into a single spell, and still be able to cast it

If you can ritual, play red 1 drop, mutate drakkis onto it returning ritual, then return the creatures to hand you quickly get infinite storm count.

This offers combo lines with Banishing Knack/Retraction Helix/Blistercoil Weird, which also serve as a damage combo outlet and disruption in a pinch. Theres also the old Izzet Guildmage/Desperate Ritual/Lava Spike combo.

If you want to sypport a bit the token theme you can add Young Pyromancer, Murmuring Mystic, Docent of Perfection  Flip, Twilight Drover and maybe Sephara, Sky's Blade. As for the spellslinger theme i personnaly suggest Goblin Electromancer, Izzet Guildmage ,Ral, Storm Conduit, the new narset and Jeskai Ascendancy. For instant and sorcery other than the basics try adding spells with either flashback, jump-start or retrace.

Hey Rasaru, thanks for reaching out! If possible you should come join the PDH Discord server (here is the invite link https://discord.gg/AUUBCku). This can make for much quicker communication!

To see which commanders are the most powerful I'd point you to the Tier List. At the moment only Tier 1 is accurate. You can find good deck examples for them in the Compendium.

Obviously fun is subjective so all I can do is list some of the decks I've enjoyed playing. You can find my lists for these here.

Dual Casting , Bonus Round , Dualcaster Mage , Expansion / Explosion , Fork , Fury Storm , Increasing Vengeance , Insidious Will , Izzet Guildmage , League Guildmage , Nivix Guildmage , Reiterate and Repeated Reverberation all immediately win you the game with another instant or sorcery, Ral and your signature spell. You don't need all of these, bu adding some of the more budget-y options might be good. Most also work well with the rest of the deck. Just a thought.
