Magus of the Future Discussion

I would suggest Curse of the Swine as better removal than pongify.

And either Future Sight or Magus of the Future if you don't mind telegraphing your moved but having access to your whole library.

Very cool! I see that you have gone in a totally different direction.

Why Magus of the Future instead of Future Sight ? Future sight nets you a spirit with Kykar and is much harder to remove as an Enchantment. It's also super cheap - at lest in Europe. Is this just to hit it (and Trinket Mage) with Divergent Transformations ?

Also Paradox Engine ate a recently. Not a problem if you play house rules, but worth noting if you plan to head to your LGS and play. I personally disagree with the ban logic, and was disappointed to have to remove the Engine from my Kykar deck.

Divergent Transformations makes this deck better. but you need to knock all the other creatures out of the deck except Trinket Mage and Magus of the Future . that way you can grab the top and win.

Suggestions for pushing the deck? Purphoros, God of the Forge would be #1 on my list. Cast enough spells and just kill everyone.

Mishra's Bauble is another 0-drop you could run. It doesn't do a whole lot, but storm decks generally need all the eggs they can get their hands on.

A relatively simple combo for kykar is Sensei's Divining Top and Future Sight . Or top and Magus of the Future . Or Mystic Forge and top. This will let you draw your whole deck with kykar out, then win with either lab man or the newest Jace from WoS.

1 drop red can-trips are what really push Kykar into storm, and with Purphoros or Impact Tremors out it's a great way to churn through your deck and kill people. Warlord's Fury , Crash Through , Magmatic Insight , Renegade Tactics , Needle Drop , Dragon Mantle . These all essentially lower the card count of the deck by being free with Kykar out.

Another pet card of mine I really like is Mirror Entity . On top of being a boost for all of Kykar's evasive tokens(and also itself being a spirit), I really like that it can turn all other tokens on your field(from Young Pyromancer , Monastery Mentor , Murmuring Mystic , etc.) into spirits too for just one mana.

Hope I helped. Happy spell-slinging!

Lythia I actually do have Future Sight in here already for redundancy with Magus of the Future . Magus is still really important here as well considering he's a target to go infinite when we exile spirit tokens as fodder to Divergent Transformations .

Hotcake_Gotsyrup you'll have more success discussing such spice in the cedh discord (there's even a specific cord for kykar!

I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't have any synergy with kicker, but despite that personal gripe there's a neat build that uses Divergent Transformations into Magus of the Future and Trinket Mage . Seems strange, but the mage fetches Sensei's Divining Top and Kykar makes top cost 0(ish), so you're then able to draw your deck for free.

I like the idea of cracker-thief (spirits love crackers) where the deck abuses Smothering Tithe + wheels like opus-thief in order to "disrupt" opponents and assemble a lock via Stasis + tithe (or any manner of locks you'd like) / any simple a+b combo.

Kykar looks like there's some awesome spice just beneath the surface. If you come up with anything spicy, I'm sure we'd all love to hear your thoughts.

How about replacing Magus of the Future with Future Sight . I’ll look more over it later :)
