Muddle the Mixture Discussion

TiberiusS on Kalamax Magecraft Spellslinger (Budget)

2 weeks ago

Hi, I like the decklist. I was wondering if there was any reason why you run copy spells that don't trigger any of your infinite combos like Teach by Example and Galvanic Iteration? I get the single Kalamax and double magecraft triggers they give but they seem kind of situational and I was curious whether or not its better than more hard disruption/protection or something that will make your infinite combos more consistent? I was also wondering whether or not you've considered any of the following: Whispers of the Muse, Fire / Ice, Merchant Scroll, Muddle the Mixture, Drift of Phantasms

Pakku on Melek, Izzet Paragon [PRIMER] (EDH)

You can go ahead and replace some of the more expensive cards like taking out Personal Tutor and Time Spiral. There are some changes as well that I might reccomend such as the Wheel of Fortune could be switched out to Valakut Awakening  Flip so that other players don't get resources or just Windfall. Gamble could be a Solve the Equation. Imo these don't change the power dynamics pretty much at all while hugely reducing the deck's cost. Cut off Mana Crypt and it should be very affordable

On what cards to cut, a few come to mind immediately. Portent is pretty bad, Mana Flare should be taken out immediately. Ruby Medallion, Mystic Speculation, Long-Term Plans (this should honestly be Solve the Equation in my list as well), Muddle the Mixture is played only for the potential transmutes so it can be cut out, Twincast has little to no use in comparison to Reverberate. Dream Cache works well with Melek out as a potential value engine but it can be cut out as well.

I'd probably slot in AEtherize, Blasphemous Act, Disrupt Decorum, Reins of Power and maybe even test out some other 2-in-1 wipes that gets you cards back like Volcanic Vision, there are other fun cards like Blustersquall which enables you to tap an opponent's board in their upkeep but I'll leave thinking those to you.

wilmer on Azami the amazing queen of drawing [40$ budget]

I appreciate your suggestions jordanalessi this is my personal thoughts about the cards.

Meletis Charlatan is good for the general combo part of the deck. I however feel its slightly to expensive in mana cost, general overall usefullness outisde the combo. When your not comboing its a dead card.

Echo Mage Has a similar problem in being to expensive, being pretty bad outside the combo.

Muddle the Mixture I would 100% play this if budget wasnt the aim. Muddle the mixture is both used in searching combos and countering instants, sorceries. It thereby makes sure its never a dead card. Sadly its to expensive for this budget.

Dizzy Spell Im unsure how good this card would be in the deck. Its base spell is really bad in only being able to negate damage. However it can search for powerful 1 mana cost cards like Sol Ring, High Tide and Abjure. It needs to be tested a-bit to see how it does. I wont make any conclusions if its good for the deck.

Meletis Charlatan & Echo Mage are budget wizards that can each go inf w dramatic reversal too. I would consider adding those. Also, I think it needs Muddle the Mixture and/or Dizzy Spell to tutor for dramatic reversal / high tide.

nathanielhebert on Walls of Ire — Defenders on Alert

Saccox, Thank you, I wasn't aware of the Moon-Blessed Cleric.

I originally restricted myself aesthetically to "walls" as a theme, but the deck needs to be fine-tuned — it's redundant to have Assault Formation and High Alert together. I was using Muddle the Mixture to transmute into Assault Formation in a worse-case scenario. I was thinking of refining the deck with a set of Drift of Phantasms to be transmuted into a 3-CMC card "High Alert", and Moon-Blessed Cleric might give more assurances to tutor up the cards I need to "combo off".

Lanzo493 on Tasigur cEDH Advice

Wanna play a not super $$$ deck but benefit off of everyone else's 0 mana accelerants, Docksides, etc? Run Culling Ritual. It's a great card.

I'm pretty new to cEDH, but I like to think I understand some of the basics. So take my advice if it appears sound. cEDH is mainly about speed and interaction. By utilizing 2 card combos, you can use just a small number of cards to win and use the rest of the deck to interact and prevent your opponents from winning. That is cEDH on average outside of high speed combo decks.

To translate that ideology into cards, it means that slow mana is bad. Lands that enter tapped and mana rocks that enter tapped don't allow you to keep up Counterspell mana at the same time as you mana ramp. This puts you incrementally behind until the crucial moment comes and you lose in a counterspell war due to lack of mana. For this reason mana rocks like Fellwar Stone are much preferred to Sky Diamond. However, a turn one Elves of Deep Shadow is still worth it even if it's slow on any other turn, so I would add that.

Another thing about cEDH that differs from high power commander is the shift from card advantage to card quality. You don't need to draw a lot of cards to win (think of cards like Genesis Wave or Recurring Insight), but rather just need the right cards. Tutors are great for this. Ponder, Preordain, and Brainstorm are fantastic as well since they're cheap, letting you keep mana up for interaction, while also giving you quality cards. I would recommend all of them. Wishclaw Talisman is a solid tutor that you can probably afford, too.

Honestly, with Tasigur on a budget, I would go for infinite mana combos, which you're already doing. Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal is on the moderate side as far as costs go, but it's powerful since you also have a lot of instants. You also already have Muddle the Mixture which basically only sees play in cEDH to assemble a scepter combo anyway while being a counter when needed. Well, that's at least why I run it. You can even search up Pili-Pala with it.

On a side note, if you run into Thassa's Oracle a lot, I would consider trading for an Endurance. Not only can this card trick an opponent into exiling most of their deck and alternate wincons in the process, it can also shuffle your own deck back into your library if it gets too full and your opponents only give you trash cards when activating Tasigur. And if you wanted to pull off a Tainted Pact win, you can use 3 normal basics and 3 snow-covered basics. Of course, you'll need lots of different lands, too, but it's not impossible on a budget.

Scytec on Izzet worth it?

You also have cards that let you filter a little more than normal such as Dig Through Time or Scroll Rack. Muddle the Mixture is a counter spell that will let you tutor for any 2 CMC card in your list. Vedalken AEthermage will let you tutor for any wizard for 3 mana. Both of these tutors are kind of slow, but at least Muddle doubles as a counter spell...that is really all i found that can grab to hand in your colors though.
