Muddle the Mixture Discussion

My Kumena deck is one of my favorite decks. Very different strategy (and colors), since it likes to go wide to abuse tap/untap effects, but isn't too control-y. But there are some cards that might be useful.

Salvager of Secrets works as both a Merfolk and a Wizard. Deeproot Waters is so good at rebuilding a board if I'm unable to protect it. It also really helps Lullmage Mentor go off, which could also be good with all the counterspells you got. Speaking of, something like Muddle the Mixture can work as another counter spell or a tutor for your many 2 drops.

If you have it or it's within your budget, Kindred Discovery can be a beast at drawing cards. The newer Reflections of Littjara can also really expand your board in really gross ways (making a token copy of Merrow Commerce feels so good in Kumena). If you can reliably get your merfolk tapped, Fallowsage is also very good, but that might just be me thinking of how much work he does with Kumena.

How about transmute cards? They can tutor up any card depending on it's CMC.

Tolaria West transmutes for any 0 mana cost card. Dizzy Spell transmutes for any 1 mana cost card. Muddle the Mixture transmutes for any 2 mana cost card. Drift of Phantasms transmutes for any 3 mana cost card.

I'd rebuild a significant portion of the deck, cos your numbers are weird.

I recommend

Overall, you'd be going t1 dork, t2 tutor, t3 Spy Kit into t4 huge thing.

If you're playing casually, they probably don't have much removal, and if they do, you can run bogles and such in the sideboard.

Cool deck!!!
Muddle the Mixture is a decent counterspell and can tutor torpor orb.
Dimir Infiltrator and shred memory are the other transmute options for torpor orb but less useful aside from the transmute. I would probably run demonic tutor or diabolic tutor over those two depending on your budget.
And i would probably run Crumbling Necropolis over one of your basic lands or another etb tapped land.
Anyway just some thoughts!! Cheers and have fun!!

MagicMarc Lot of suggestions there! I'll try the full Slippery Bogle --> Paradise Druid switch, but I'm a little concerned about the progression of the first couple turns. Adding more Sylvan Caryatid s was on my list, but I'll need to get more copies. Muddle the Mixture is good, I can get that done. I'll try out Fierce Empath and Reason / Believe ; I had Reason / Believe in for a while, and it worked well.

Thanks for the thoughts!

I like your deck. Looks like it would be a lot of fun for casual games. I also have some suggestions:

I would replace all the copies of Slippery Bogle with Paradise Druid . You get hexproof and can tap for colored mana. Which helps address your mana issues you mention in the description. And up the count of your Sylvan Caryatid s.
I would also consider replacing the 3 copies of Turn Aside with Muddle the Mixture . It counters instant and sorceries which would be the primary targets for Turn Aside anyways. Then it can also transmute for Spy Kit , Cream of the Crop , Sylvan Caryatid and Paradise Druid . (If you added it).
I would also suggest getting 2 or more copies of Fierce Empath which would let you tutor your giant monsters.
Then once you get them in hand you can use Retraced Image of course. Or put them on top of your library with Brainstorm for Mitotic Manipulation .
I would also suggest a mana rock if you continue to have mana problems whether or not you add Paradise Druid . Something like Simic Keyrune would be good since it can also transform into a hexproof creature for your combo.
I like Reason / Believe in your maybeboard too. Scrys and it can also put them into play with the Aftermath side. Synergizes nicely with the deck though not sure where you would cut until you even out your other issues.

haha, ok yes... combo mill!

there are 42 mill dorks and a Thrumming Stone to win you the game

billy + his stick utilise the manadorks as a gattling-gun-tutor

also note that the 3 mana rocks and all your non-snow-covered land can double as [sacrificial] lambs

Ashiok's Erasure and the instants are all of Magic's classiest ways to "counter" spells... w/o countering them ;)

**except for Muddle the Mixture , which finds you quick , a stick , or a dick to get things rolling (pretty much always find the stick!)

using your classy protection, the stick, and MAN-a acceleration, you sac your way into turns , spells , artifacts , and any other artifact so you get the extra turn (you might need it, if you aren't quick

you can then a) combo off, ripple-cast all the dudes, and mill your opp, or b) pass the turn to yourself, untap, combo off, ripple-cast all the dudes, mill your opp. should happen T5-6 at the latest :)

i forgot Darksteel Citadel and Seat of the Synod fixed.

You could include combo lines around Intruder Alarm , such as Alarm + Deranged Assistant + Hua Tuo, Honored Physician . There are actually a lot of cheap self-mill creatures that work here like Cathartic Adept , Vantress Gargoyle , and Millikin among many others. Drift of Phantasms could be nice to include here since it can find either Alarm or Hua Tuo.

Another good combo card is Mana Severance . You could follow it up with Balustrade Spy , Hermit Druid , or Undercity Informer to mill your whole library. This is good since you could then flashback Dread Return targeting Necrotic Ooze, which in turn is good if you toss in Necrotic Ooze combo lines (there are many) such as Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion .

Another notable self-mill card is Cephalid Illusionist . With it and Lightning Greaves you can mill your whole library, 3 cards at a time. The 3 card chunks is significant since you'll get a bunch of triggers from Sidisi, so a finisher like the above-mentioned Necrotic Ooze combo may not be needed since you'll have tons of zombies. Dimir Infiltrator and Muddle the Mixture are nice here since they can find either combo piece.
