Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

Soulus101 on Hit Me Again Daddy UwU

I feel like this is the name I should've given to my Darien, King of Kjeldor deck.

Speaking of whom, perhaps some upside if they do actually manage to get through? And what about Leyline of Anticipation to turn your Sunblast Angels into blowouts?

So, the best way to determine what to cut is always trial and error. What performs well in some metagames may not perform well in others; so what I would cut doesn't mean the card is bad, I just don't view it as optimal.

Arcane Denial - yes it's an easy to cast counter but it comes with the downside of giving your opponent resources.

Contingency Plan - this card helps you dig but you'll find Impulse to be an upgrade.

Leyline of Anticipation/Vedalken Orrery - these cards are traps. Heavy mana investment with a low return.

All the ramp sorceries - its safe ramp but when you're playing at higher level tables the focus will be on who can be more explosive. 0 mana rocks/positive rocks are the way to go.

To increase consistency of the deck I would increase the number of mana rocks and lands. You have 40 cards that are dedicated to mana, I would prefer to have at around 45/50. Include like: Commander's Sphere Gilded Lotus Darksteel Ingot Thawing Glaciers Myriad Landscape etc.

Leyline of Anticipation would be a great addition to you deck I think.

Jacksansyboy, I've seen those cards floating around too Leyline of Anticipation and such. I could side board it for sure, honestly didn't know it existed so thanks :D But it's so unlikely for me, each player at the table will have hexproof. Far more likely they work as a team to destroy the triplets.

I would consider switching out cards like Curiosity and Keen Sense for things like Hunter's Insight, Return of the Wildspeaker, Hunter's Prowess, or Rishkar's Expertise. My guess is that you'll get a lot more value out of 1-time large draw effects as Pako will be a prime target for removal. Rishkar's/Return of the Wildspeaker are insane value if you're able to attack just once and keep Pako around.

Thought Scour seems like an inefficient cantrip, if you want to keep the curve low maybe Ponder would be better suited for the slot?

Wilderness Reclamation, Seedborn Muse, Leyline of Anticipation, and Vedalken Orrery all seem like great ways to further utilize Halden's ability during everyone else's turns which could be very powerful.

Dakra Mystic seems odd given that no matter what the card on top either goes into your opponents hands or their graveyard, removing your ability to choose whether or not you want cards to remain on top of their library.

Wizened Snitches seems expensive for this effect

Given that you can play lands with Halden I think the Dryad/Oracle effects are very strong and a great inclusion. Same with Song of Creation in this deck. Perhaps consider playing Azusa, Lost but Seeking as well?

Maybe swap one of your removal spells for Beast Within, card is so good given it's flexibility.

I like it, I suggest Leyline of Anticipation and Vedalken Orrery. Also, throw in a few more bounce cards as removal for opponents and another way to duplicate Thassa's flicker.

Thanks for the Suggestions DeinoStinkus

Unfortunately Finale of Devastation is a tutor and I'm trying not to run any others.

Leyline of Anticipation is pretty decent, but It would be hard to find a place for it.
