Mystic Remora Discussion

Starsky2814 on Omnath, A Song of Creation and Chaos

unwucht, thank you for the feedback! What do you think would be a better cut for Carpet of Flowers? I don’t want to cut Burgeoning, but it was the only thing that came to mind besides Farseek. Hopefully Mystic Remora is better. I can’t see anyone paying to counter the draw and the cumulative upkeep should be easy to pay for us. Chromatic Orrery could very well be overrated, but like you said, won’t know until it’s tested. So I’ll give it a shot.

These are some adjustments I want to try out:

Feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Or do you think Mystic Remora needs a chance in place of Rhystic Study?

Quodan on CMDZ - Jimmy's Marchesa (rebuild)

In the Extra Turns match against Jesper, Ashlen, and Josh I saw a few cards that weren’t on this list such as Hostage Taker , Phyrexian Tower , Mystic Remora and Dimir Aqueduct I was wondering if you could update this deck with those additions since I am a big fan of Marchesa, the black rose.

No problem! It just comes down to experience really. If you're playing on Cockatrice, I wholly recommend running Tundra and a full set of fetchlands:

Fetchlands hit any card with its land type in its description. For example Arid Mesa hits any Plains, meaning not only can it fetch basics but also can get you Tundra and Hallowed Fountain. They're one of the best things you can do for a deck's consistency. I recommend cutting Evolving Wilds and Fabled Passage to start, and then decide on what else you want to drop for the rest.

Next you'll want to be adding fast mana. Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, and Chrome Mox will help a tonne. Keep Sol Ring and Arcane Signet alongside them, altogether they'll speed the deck up a lot which especially helps due to your higher average cmc.

On top those you could add Fierce Guardianship and Pact of Negation as great counterspells, as well as Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora for card draw. Of course the more stuff you add in general the more you have to remove, so it's up to you.

Ojutai is a great commander though, so have fun!

Mystic Remora always puts in work for me. Swords to Plowshares is best removal printed to date. You're gunna have a hard time winning against the counter suite that is Mana Drain, Force of Will, Force of Negation, Counterspell and Delay. Also, I highly recommend bringing new prospectives in from your board it belongs in every cycling deck capable of running it.

Thanks for the suggestions! I was looking for a few card to limit my opponents' draws but couldn't find any so Notion Thief and Narset, Parter of Veils are definitely going into the deck. I was going to eventually upgrade Mystic Remora to Rhystic Study but don't want to tatally break the bank on this deck yet. Necropotence is too synergistic for me to not put it in the deck though.
