Sughes on It's Always Sunny in Dominaria

michaelvlevine I'm trying to make a deck based on yours for my casual playgroup. Safe to say I can't afford Bazaar of Baghdad, City of Traitors, Grim Monolith, Mishra's Workshop, Mox Diamond, and Serra's Sanctum. However, my playgroup has agreed to allow 6 proxies per deck. Would Basalt Monolith work to replace Grim Monolith? I'd like to reduce the overall power of the deck by replacing some cards with flavor cards like Omen of the Sun, Heliod's Intervention, and Spear of Heliod. Cool deck man!

Fann, you may want some faster mana like Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt, or the formentioned Jeweled Lotus. These might be out of your price range. You are fine if your playgroup doesn't utilize them or other fast ramp like Mox Diamond. I will say Dockside Extortionist has been very good to me in both the decks I listed on Moxfield. It isn't a wizard so you may take a pass on it.

I see that you are playing the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo. Do you use that mana in your main combo? You usually see this infinite mana combo directly lead to a win.

I would definitely recommend you upgrade and add counterspell interaction. Swan Song and Flusterstorm are budgetary options if Force of Will, Force of Negation, Pact of Negation, and Fierce Guardianship are out of your price range. Deflecting Swat is another slightly pricey option but it is great if your commander is critical to your combo.

I assume Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor are also omitted because of budget.

Looks very similar. Obviously a much older list than my own. I think with more stable mana sources like Chrome Mox or Mox Diamond you could do without the zero drop dorks.

If you're aiming for a more cutthroat approach to the list, there are some key pieces of interaction and acceleration you're missing, and I've got suggested cuts as well:

I would also run the big three cantrips:

Before suggesting future cuts and changes, the next question becomes: How do you want to kill, and how do you want to get there? You and I spoke previously about this a bit, so I know you don't want to go for a creatureless Proteus Staff kill. Fish is a pretty compact wincon, but it seems to me that it may not be strictly necessary. You're going to run Top anyhow, so if you're holding your deck, you can find a way to win no matter what. My impression is that you can go a few different routes:

  • You can build a list that wants to manually storm off and kill with Aetherflux Reservoir. Reservoir provides a natural outlet to Top lines while also supporting a more traditional storm plan. This then has two subtly different approaches, one leaning on artifacts and one leaning on spells.
  • You can build a list that wants to assemble Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal for infinite storm and mana and then find an outlet for one or the other.
  • You can build a list that wants to resolve Fish or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries with an empty library.

You're also in the colors for access to almost the entire Wheels package, in case that appeals to you:

Resolving any wheel with any lock piece is generally enough to just win the game.

Thoughts so far?

RNR_Gaming I've incorporated the suggestions you've given, just let me know more of your suggestions when you get around to it (Peer into the abyss is on the sideboard until I get more complete feedback). I won't put Mox Diamond or anything that expensive on the list because I'll never be able to afford the deck unfortunately (Librarians don't make that crazy of money).

enpc thanks for pointing out the Tortured Existence synergy. I've included it for now at least.

I don’t think Kodama of the East Tree works for us, most of the time we’re bringing in permanents with abilities, the density in our deck of permanents isn’t high enough for this to be effective in my opinion, especially as we’re tight on cuts as it is.

Jeweled Lotus, Can enable Omnath a turn or 2 earlier. If we made space for Mox Diamond as well we can get a turn 1 Omnath with 2 cards still in hand. That is strong, it just won’t happen very often. Currently we can get a turn 2 Omnath is but it leaves us in top deck mode. Keeping our hand full is something that historically the deck has struggled with especially when we have explosive starts. I am kinda seeing Jeweled Lotus as providing sudo card advantage from this perspective as I’d much rather drop Omnath early and use my ramp spells when Omnath is in play.
