Mission Briefing

Mission Briefing


Surveil 2, then choose an instant or sorcery card in your graveyard. You may cast this card this turn. If that card would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead. (To surveil 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)

Some other good budget options for cards that are a bit janky would be Brainstorm (not jank), Lat-Nam's Legacy, Spy Network, Quickling, or Mission Briefing. These comes from my ninja deck that tries the same strategy of playing on another turn and being a bit unorthodox. Always good to see cards that usually collect dust get some play.

I've also had a lot of success using split second cards like Sudden Death to shut down nonsense plays.

Yeah I made a few cuts from underperformers from my first game with Runo, Namely, Nemesis of Reason, and Mission Briefing. Mission briefing was just a dead card in my hand early and Nemesis betrayed me the only time runo got around my next upkeep. Frantic Search is already one of the cards that is going in. Vile Entomber is a good get! Striped Riverwinder, and Dreamscape Artist were the other two I was thinking.

Got any other suggestions for cuts?

RyuSama420 Nor does Snapcaster. I'm saying that if the opponent has searched their library, then you can use Mission Briefing to cast Archive Trap from your graveyard for it's alternate cost of 0. The way Snapcaster Mage is worded, you always have to pay the regular cost of 5cmc to cast Archive Trap from the graveyard (whether they've searched their library or not), so the two cards don't play as well together. This is why Mission Briefing is the better option in mill decks.

wallisface: Mission Briefing doesn't make the opponent search their library.

Some thoughts:

  • Crypt Incursion and Extirpate don’t play well with Dauthi Voidwalker at all - and i’m not actually sure what purpose you’re expecting the Voidwalker to actually fill here. Voidwalker feels like a sideboard card at best tbh.

  • Mission Briefing is better than Snapcaster Mage in mill decks, because Briefing lets you cast Archive Trap for its alternative cost of 0, whereas with Snappy you’d always be stuck paying full-price.

  • personally, i think you need one more playset of a mill-spell to be able to effectively mill out your opponent.

  • I also think 19 lands is faaar too low, especially when you need them for the crabs to operate. With your quantity of 3-drops alone, i’d think 23ish lands would suit better

Reynan - Mission Briefing is better than Snapcaster Mage in mill, because the way Briefing is worded, you can cast Archive Trap for its alternate cost of 0. Whereas with Snapcaster, you’d be forced to pay the full cost of 5 to cast that spell.

lagotriphaThank you for the feedback I'll consider cutting Scepter completely but I am still attached to the idea of getting Mission Briefing or Remand under it; with a counter spell Imprinted and two untapped lands it can protect itself from at least one Prismatic Ending--an extra spell would be needed against countering but I can test that out.

zapyourtumor I rather Twincast . I have a set of Mission Briefing I tested and found it only helps Archive Trap . Twincast has better synergy for my spells. It makes Fractured Sanity twice as powerful. With mission briefing I must pay the mana to cast Fractured sanity again. Its a good alternative but I feel its becomes to situational
