Call me crazy, but I think Silas Renn, Seeker Adept would be a better partner than Ikra. Memory Jar and Bag of Holding could be a neat includes in a Silas x Kydele build since Silas can recur artifacts.

awalloftext - Hey, thanks for taking a look!

I honestly chucked Skyshroud Elf in just because I had one and I didn't have another Bloom Tender on hand. But I've added Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as a sort of Gaea's Cradle lite. I was on the fence about adding it and Glacial Chasm to the list. Chasm I think I'll add to the more group hug version if I can figure out group hug synergies.

And thank's for suggesting Hunter's Insight I'm not too familiar with Green card draw. I run Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , but it's mainly rummage effects with green tutors. So I was at a bit of a loss since I'm not planning on making the creatures big enough to use the more common sorcerys I know of for card draw.

I started playing during Onslaught and Dragon Mage is my favorite card from then. I actually had a few good results using it in my old play group as a surprise add in, but if the new group gets better I'll probably swap it out for something else, probably Memory Jar .

Thanks again for taking a look. :)

Interesting idea! Some things to consider:

Demonic Consultation naming Mirror of Fate acts as a more mana-intensive alternative to doomsday, and it wouldn't exile your graveyard. The mirror also works nicely with Necropotence.

You might also like these cards: Bag of Holding , Dimir Machinations (transmutes for necropotence), Tectonic Reformation , Street Wraith , Treasonous Ogre , Archfiend of Ifnir , Bone Miser , Alhammarret's Archive , Brainspoil (transmutes for alham's archive), Illusionist's Bracers , Mindmoil , Bolas's Citadel , Skirge Familiar , Shred Memory (for transmuting, especially for Shadow of the Grave! digging for Shadow seems paramount), archfiend of spite, curse of fool's wisdom, Gamble , Words of Waste , Geth's Grimoire , Waste Not , Burning Inquiry , Dark Deal , Reforge the Soul , Khorvath's Fury , Incendiary Command , Runehorn Hellkite , Memory Jar , Uba Mask , Bedlam Reveler .

I'm sure you can make room for some of these by removing some of those extra Muck Drubbs and Tainted Pacts :P

Love the idea :) Black discard and discard pain, red wheel, blue draw. Amazing synergies.

Some suggestions:

You might be able to make Memory Jar work? I see you have Magus of the Jar in your maybeboard so you probably already considered it.

All of the Niv-Mizzets sound up your alley as well but all very high CMC.

Maybe Consecrated Sphinx as an engine to keep your card advantage higher than your opponents? Although you will be wheeling anyway, so probably not worth, not sure.

What do you think about Chain of Smog or Dream Salvage ? I have always been fascinated by both of them and trying to make them work in various ways.

QuietMyth on Primer: Kozilek Great Distortion of the Boardstate

Sarkhan420X I dont think that at all. Compare to Mind's Eye . If kozilek is out and safe you can choose to use your mana to draw cards. If kozilek needs to be cast again you can let Minds Eye go unused for a round.

Mystic Forge is an infinitely better engine than Minds Eye, and not using it hurts you real bad sometimes. It just doesnt synergize specifically with The Great Distortion the same way a bonkers card like Scroll Rack or Memory Jar . Which sucks, but like I said, you can already conclude that Mystic Forge is going to be a staple in every colorless deck.

Goron3 on Varina Life Swing

This is a classic Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar deck. The ultimate goal is to have one of the following: Zulaport Cutthroat , Wayward Servant , Plague Belcher , Diregraf Captain , Corpse Knight ; alongside the Gravecrawler constantly going back and forth.

There are some cards that allow this combo without Phyrexian Altar . Mikaeus, the Unhallowed can combo with Putrid Goblin . Both can also double sacrifice effects if they are alone for value without combo- ing off. Rooftop Storm can replace Phyrexian Altar or unlock Relentless Dead to replace Gravecrawler .

With a commander like Varina, Lich Queen , with a strong Draw/discard effect, we need cards to discard. Cards that can make incredible value for Windfall + Whispering Madness + Memory Jar while refilling our hand and filling the graveyard. From Under the Floorboards , Waste Not (for opponents), Reanimate , Stitch Together .
