TriusMalarky on Gifts Tron?

4 weeks ago

So, what I'm thinking so far:

  • First, Tron isn't Plan A. It's a B-Plan that can be used to help cheat out the bigger cards that we otherwise couldn't cast. Think of it more of tacking Tron lands to a reanimation strategy.

  • Second, I think it should be a toolbox type deck. Trying to keep it low on colors, which will restrict it a bit, but it should be able to function rather well as a toolbox control tron reanimator list, which sounds odd but I think it can be mathed out.

  • Bring to Light?

  • Signets?

  • Mystical Teachings?

lagotripha on Fact or Fiction deck Idea ...

It is worth glancing at the old Mystical Teachings lists for ideas, as it is a similar spell which likes instant speed and minor graveyard synergy.

Between gifts, fof, and mystical you have an incredible set of four mana card advantage tools, which is great for decks that want to trade and go long- so control and combo lists.

The lack of snappy will be awkward for control, but Mission Briefing can work. The big thing with avoiding snappy is that you can't just copy the deck, you need to make lacking that creature worth it; Polymorph combo or similar card type matters effects to give you an edge that more expensive decks would have to 'give up their best cards' for.

Just keep your playgroup in mind and try to maintain interaction on both sides of the table. Landing an unexpected Night of Souls' Betrayal great, or zero fun at all.

Boza on Mystical teachings style deck?

Remove some of the fat - remove 4 devastators, 4 blisterpods and 2 crushers. Heck, even Mystical Teachings is a great toolbox to have. Makes Weather the Storm , Scour from Existence , Mnemonic Wall even better, but there are way more utility cards than that!

How would I build a deck around Mystical Teachings ? Should it be centered around Dizzy Spell ? And what is the best colors for the deck? (Example: dimir, izzet, sultai, etc)

Any kind of deck that plays Mystical Teachings . You can do UB Teachings, Grixis Teachings, Esper Teachings, 100-card Teachings... go wild. There's lots of cool instants in pauper.

4 colors and no Arcum's Astrolabe ? That's really greedy of you.

If you go a little heavier on the black, you could run Evincar's Justice which is both a board wipe and a win con as well as Thorn of the Black Rose in order to get your combo going.

I don't quite understand why your deck is only running one Mnemonic Wall when it's essential to the deck and you can't tutor it.

Your deck feels pretty weak to removal that exiles, such as Unmake or Ob Nixilis's Cruelty , to non-elf swarm tactics (namely, goblins and slivers) and to Thorn of the Black Rose and Palace Sentinels decks. I'm not sure how you fare against burn either, as it feels like you'll probably lose pre-board and your best shot at winning post board is getting Ephemerate + Hallow + Mnemonic Wall which is unlikely to happen twice in a row.

Overall, this feels like Teachings Tron that doesn't play the Urza lands in order to play Skred effectively but lacking the access to the Urza lands means you can't make good use of Mystical Teachings as you're not floating in a pool of mana. You do, however, get rid of the Crop Rotation + Expedition Map + Prophetic Prism package that is essential to playing Tron, which leaves more slots open but I'm a bit skeptical still.
