Lazotep Plating Discussion
1 week ago
seshiro_of_the_orochi Lazotep Plating is like Dive Down but affects all permanents, which I need to protect my enchantments as well as creatures. I'd much rather use a non-rewarding card for removal. What about Immolating Glare ?

cut Aegis of the Heavens , Lazotep Plating , and Gauntlets of Light . you don't need buff spells, you need removal so you can get in unblocked attacks in the first place. buffs won't help when your opponent can chump block with a 1/1.

Hey, well done on a budget, but what's with the manabase?
I understand this is budget, but you can't possibly think that 36 basic lands for a three color deck is any where near competitive; deck is in the competitive hub. Where's Command Tower ? The majority of rest of the deck other than Disentomb and Raise Dead is built with a competitive mindset therefore I know you have good card sense with the budget that you have. Even on a low budget you can include playable dual lands:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Llanowar Wastes
- Yavimaya Coast
- Path of Ancestry
- Opulent Palace
- Sunken Hollow
- Necroblossom Snarl
- Vineglimmer Snarl
- Tainted Wood
My advice is if budget is a concern cut some expensive price cards to add some playable dual lands. Grim Tutor and Heroic Intervention are two cuts to consider since these cards can be replaced by lower price options Lazotep Plating and Profane Tutor . On a budget Fauna Shaman is not worth it since it could be replaced with a less expensive price tutor Shared Summons .
Consider a backup win condition that doesn't require that you draw your entire deck and hope that Oracle or Maniac live/resolve? Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Venser, Shaper Savant and Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be infinitely blinked or cast for three different win conditions. Peregrine Drake + Venser, Shaper Savant + Yarok, the Desecrated is another infinite mana combo.
Consider budget backups to all your main combo creatures? Backups are helpful because without them the combo is very fragile, easy for an opponent to disrupt.
- Venser, Shaper Savant and Temur Sabertooth backup Deadeye
- Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War backup Shrieking
- Peregrine Drake backup Cloud
Good luck with your deck.

Was kinda thinking the same thing. Not sure how many good negative ETBs are out there for Green though. Forcing Heroic Intervention in there might be pushing the color balance when cards like Lazotep Plating and Rebuff the Wicked already exist.

Super sweet deck. I had the idea to do a Illuna + Omniscience deck, googled it, and found your list. I've got a couple suggestions though.
I think you could use more incidental token production to give you mutate targets. Cards like Lazotep Plating , Emergent Sequence , Growth Spasm , Alrund's Epiphany or Stolen by the Fae could be great ways to create tokens for you to mutate onto, outside of man lands or GSZing for Dryad Arbor or Crop Rotating for Khalni Garden. The more expensive man lands like Lumbering Falls, Wandering Fumarole and Raging Ravine feel especially clunky here as 10 mana to activate them plus mutate is pretty steep. Another angle could be adding a Dwarven Mine , and maybe a Sheltered Thicket and second basic mountain to go along with it, so that your Mire, Mesa, Tarn and Foothills can produce a creature token as well. Kher Keep could be good for this too as it's a repeatable effect.
It seems to me that you don't have enough ways to deterministically win once you get the Omniscience down. Intuition, Gamble and Mystical Tutor + a cantrip, seem like your only ways to reliably find Ignite Memories, and Intuition only gets into your graveyard. You definitely need at least 2 Regrowth / Reclaim effects so that your Intuition always gets you what you want. Bala Ged Recovery Flip, Mystic Retrieval , and Experimental Overload (since it can make a token too) are all cool options there. Playing those cards to support Intuition also allows you to play Gifts Ungiven and put together similar packages with it. Probably the best card to use to go off with Omniscience is Petals of Insight since it makes the storm count infinitely large and finds you your Ignite Memories all in one card. You could use cards like Solve the Equation or even Eerie Procession to find the Petals since it's an arcane spell. There's also Merchant Scroll which doesn't get you to the sorcery Petals directly, but it can find Firemind's Foresight , which then finds Intuition along with maybe some interaction. Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Faithless Looting and Frantic Search all seem fine here as they're useful both before and after you get your Omni down. Spells like Time Twister and Time Spiral seem less good though, as there's a fair chance you could fizzle after casting them even with an Omniscience out. Enter the Infinite , Praetor's Counsel , Insurrection , Volcanic Vision , or Mnemonic Deluge also work as finishers if you want to do something bigger and splashier with Omniscience out.
Lastly, Sea Gate Restoration Flip, Valakut Awakening Flip, and Silundi Vision Flip all could be sensible additions to the mana base that double as ways to start go off with Omni. Not to mention Bala Ged Recovery that I mentioned before as part of the Intuition/Gifts package. Once you start playing any number of those spell lands, it probably then becomes a good idea to include a Gruul Turf or similar land to open up the line of Crop Rotating into a bounce land to return a spell land to hand. Once you're on this land package, Hour of Promise starts to look pretty appealing, as it can find bounce + spell land to start and Omniscience chain, or any number of various creature lands if you need something to mutate onto.

Here are some I use, seperated by category:
Other than that, I run some value cards, like Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip, Storm-Kiln Artist , and Aetherflux Reservoir to just go on, and on, and on, and on, so on and so forth. Plenty of Draw Spells to keep the gas going, and some other Spell-slinging accoutrements.
