Long-Term Plans


Search your library for a card, shuffle your library, then put that card third from the top.

Long-Term Plans Discussion

Another card similar to Sensei’s diving top is Soothsaying which could help with the mana sink if you have nothing else to do during a turn and shuffling your deck if you ever need to.

Speaking from experience Baral's Expertise after a few spells with Thousand year storm can be completely nuts and I would highly recommend it.

Frantic Search is another card similar to Snap that will untap your lands to help increase your storm count.

With Smothering Tithe in your deck maybe some cards like Windfall and Time Reversal would be good to add in so you can load up on treasures to and get a new hand of cards.

Long-Term Plans is a blue tutor that allows you to search for anything that could go well with your commander since you could actually cast stuff off the top to get to that card.

Update: swapped out Mirrorworks for Long-Term Plans to have another way to get to Psychosis Crawler.

i could argue Long-Term Plans is an acceptable tutor in blue. if searches for any card, you don't have to reveal it, and it's instant speed. the only catch is it's 3rd from teh top, but pretty much any of the basic blue cantrips like preordain, ponder, and brainstrom can get it.

How do you consistently get food chain in your hand?

The only tutors I see you have for it are Drift of Phantasms and Long-Term Plans (which still requires more work to get it in your hand). If those are your only tutors for it, then statistically you have to see 33 cards before running into Food Chain or one of its tutors. I don't see how this deck can see 33 cards and still have mana open to cast the tutor and food chain consistently by turn 4.

Am I missing something?

dingusdingo on Budget Kefnet Turns

I enjoy the Kefnet Turns build, haven't seen it before for this commander and I think its rather neat. You should focus exclusively on assembling your win and remove the extra side cards, like your mill sub-theme. I also think you should replace expensive removal and interaction with cheaper pieces, as you're less likely to cast them off the top with Kefnet. I also think you should add in more ways to discard and also tutor to top of deck. Your combo requires a handful of specific cards and also to be in a specific spot in your library, so topdeck manipulation and tutors help immensely.

My complete list of changes would be

Dismiss -> Counterspell

Everdream -> Ponder

Exclude -> Arcane Denial

Precognitive Perception -> Concentrate (You're never copying the addendum with Kefnet)

Supreme Will -> Mana Leak

Thought Collapse -> Mental Misstep (Every deck runs 1 cmc spells so Misstep is unbelievable value for EDH)

River's Rebuke -> Wipe Away

Zndrsplt's Judgement -> Vapor Snag (That card is hard to link to :O )

Mistfire Adept -> Long-Term Plans

Riverwise Augur -> Sleight of Hand

Niblis of Frost -> Mystical Tutor

Drowned Secrets -> Serum Visions

Fraying Sanity -> Preordain

Precognition Field -> Careful Study

Psychic Corrosion -> Fabricate

I think its worth noting

That to combo off, you need Library + Aminatou's Aug + Dino + Turn card + Commander. That requires 4 cards outside your commander, 3 of which are exactly specific. Finding another enabler or outlet to reuse your turn spells or another way to put cards on top would help the consistency of this deck a lot. Running more draw and tutors to topdeck also lets you value copy a turn spell to start chaining turns, and even if you don't hit an infinite loop getting 3 or 4 extra turns will get you much closer to establishing the lock. You should shave off alternate wincons and focus on getting infinite turns, because once you have them you've won.

Bloodwater Entity is extremely useful here. Its on legs so you can flicker it or copy it. Other topdeck manipulation creatures Omenspeaker Sage Owl Spire Owl Sage of Epityr Augury Owl

Cathartic Adept and similar mill effects can help you move past undesirable topdeck cards. Gives control when you can see enemy topdecks Pyxis of Pandemonium Ghoulcaller's Bell Drowner Initiate Hedron Crab Jace's Erasure Drowned Secrets Codex Shredder

If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

Snapcaster Mage is expensive, but would be good to get an spell from your grave.

Spellseeker is a tutor on a wizard so it would be a good addition.

Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor would be good to get some spells from the deck. Long-Term Plans is also a blue tutor for any card.
