Good point! I actually have a Mind's Eye in my binder, so that will go in for sure.I'm okay with a $10 card - Vanquisher's Banner - but I should wait until my next payday. That seems really good for this deck. Some of those others, yeah they're cheap. Maybe I can find them at my LGS or maybe a friend has one I can trade.

What is your opinion of cards like Valakut Exploration or Theater of Horrors that aren't really card draw but can still give advantage? I've been eyeing some of those.

Other possible cards for consistent card draw would be Mind's Eye, Seer's Sundial, Staff of Nin or Jayemdae Tome. They each have their strengths and weaknesses. And of the three only Mind's Eye costs anything.

Mind's Eye is a bit outclassed these days but it was a staple of the format for a long while for a reason. It's useable until you can get your hands on something better.

Greater Good probably isn't the best fit for the deck unless you put in a bunch of ways to pump your creatures up significantly, like Beastmaster Ascension. The power of most of your creatures just aren't high enough for it to be worth sacrificing them since you'll end up discarding more than you draw.

Skullclamp could be a good addition though, yeah. Skullclamp + Sigarda is like turning every card in your graveyard into a Divination. The issue would be that if you go heavier on +1/+1 synergies and anthem effects to boost your token creatures then you will loose a lot of Skullclamp's effectiveness since the creatures won't die as soon as you equip. Your deck doesn't have ways to sacrifice creatures so you would be relying on trading the equipped creature in combat or baiting removal to draw cards.

I actually have a Shamanic Revelation in my binder. I have many copies of Soul of the Harvest too, but that seems a bit inefficient. (They're good enough to keep in my binder, but not good enough that they ever seem to get used lol) I think I had it in my first version of this deck. I have some auras like Sixth Sense too, but ... not sure how reliable draw that would be.

Another card I have is Greater Good, which might be useful in response to a boardwipe, right? Just sac everything. The discard might be problematic though, unless I'm able to get Emeria Shepherd or Sun Titan into play - then it might be card advantage idk.

As far as artifacts: Tamiyo's Journal is another card I'm considering since it creates clue tokens each upkeep. Got a Mind's Eye too.

Also, I just noticed I actually do have a spare Skullclamp, which is a no-brainer in this deck! I'm so thankful I acquired some of these cards before their prices spiked so much.

Scytec on Tiamat

beside tiamat in your edit page, put CMDR in asterisks, that will denote it as your commander.

As for cards, i would start with Farseek, Explosive Vegetation, Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Coldsteel Heart, Mind's Eye, Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Fertile Ground, Dawn's Reflection, Sphere of the Suns, Mask of Memory, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Counterspell, Vanquish the Horde, Wrath of God, Semester's End, Pongify, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Vandalblast, Merciless Eviction, you need some answers, consitent ramp, and tons of draw. These are a few of the cards/effects i would consider or search for if i were you to start with. Hopefully they give you more ideas as well. You're gonna want to run 37-39 lands in my opinion. I'd probably start with 37-38 if i were you i think. Let me know if you think of anything else you want to know about. I tried to keep these mostly budget. A few are kinda expensive, but most are $5 or less. Silence is another fun one to consider.

DemonDragonJ on The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Raze

I have replaced Mind's Eye with Consecrated Sphinx, which did increase the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.62 to 3.63, but I believe that that replacement was worth the increase, since the sphinx is superior to the eye in the majority of situations.

I have replaced Mind's Eye with Consecrated Sphinx, which did increase the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.55 to 3.57, but I believe that that replacement was worth the increase, since the sphinx is superior to the eye in the majority of situations.
