Mystical Tutor Discussion

Cool to know more about how the deck developed to it's current state. In the "concept" section you do mention that it's a more combo focused so i guess i could've taken that into account.
well you could maybe use a few tutors, along with the transmute package, or replace some of them it one of these: Parallel Thoughts, Long-Term Plans or Gamble. Paralell thoughts is pretty underused, and considering how much draw you have, it could be good - the same with long-term plans. gamble is... well a gamble, but since you have a large hand the odds get better. parallel thoughts is a bit overkill, since you really only need just one of 2 cards, and the other 5 just take up space.
the transmute cards are less expensive mana wise, but less versatile. if you have merchant scroll in hand, you can spend 5 mana to get a combo piece, compared to just transmuting for 3 and possibly comboing that turn.
but yeah the transmute cards are reliable.
hopefully those align with your current plan with the deck better.

@Lanzo493 - I made some alterations last night. Vault is in, i picked up Mystical Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Farseek, Lim-Dul's Vault, and Necropotence. I'm not sure how my Doomsday stack will look, i will definitely need Wraith if i add it in. I want to be able to just win when i resolve it, and i don't really see a stack that will let me do that even with an activation of Tasigurs ability. Granted i only spent about a minute on it. Maybe a string of cantrips ending in Thassa's Oracle? Haha. Should have some mana up when i go for it. Mnemonic Betrayal looks interesting. I'll add that to my list of potential acquisitions. Thank you!

@NinjaBunny01 - I would say probably $5 or less honestly. I do have Necropotence so I will figure out how to slot that in. In addition to the cards I listed earlier, I am also found Mystical Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Lim-Dul's Vault, and Wishclaw Talisman. Those are going to slot in as soon as I work out what to remove for each of them. Haha, kind of leaning toward Murderous Cut, Treasure Cruise, Bring to Light, Tribute Mage, and Krosan Grip. What would you recommend?

Got a big list of possible inclusions and cards to cut for ya. I'll try to keep things budget(ish) friendly, but there's a few I'm not suggesting that're worth trading up for.
Cuts: Approach of the Second Sun, Reconstruct History, Solve the Equation, Conjurer's Closet, and a few counterspells.

To be fair i do agree with most of your assessment.
1st. I agree turn 1 colorless mana really sucks, even when i have enough rocks in opening hand to over come it i could have had a better play if i had access to color.
2nd I completely agree that the constructs are useless, i mean the best play i've seen with constructs was mid game with Rite of Replication . but if you brake that down, play a land to combo next turn, and then wait another turn to swing 6 fatty's in a deck that's designed to combo win? that's just bad timmy, bad bad timmy, like go stand in the corner timmy and think about what you just did.....
3rd i partially agree with your assessment of the tutor function. waiting 3 turns to tutor completely sucks and i believe this renders the card useless in The Gitrog Monster . But as for my opponents running anti tutor this land is the perfect bait. even in worse case if they nail me with an Opposition Agent its tutor is restricted enough that i can recover. but after it resolves i know its all clear i grab my top then can freely cast Mystical Tutor and use the top to combo off immediately.
i know its just not good enough that i'm wasting my time rooting for this little guy, but in my izzet deck Urza's Saga has consistently out performed Strip Mine , Blast Zone , Gemstone Caverns , & Inventors' Fair which were the other options i was considering for the colorless land slot.

"Partner with" is a somewhat weird mechanic. In commander, you can have two commanders if you have the correct pair. But in every format, if you have one of them entering the field, you can force any player to search for the other partner. So in most cases, you'll simple use Sylvia to find Khorvath and vice versa. But you could hypothetically force an opponent to search for Khorvath, which they will propably not be able to find. They still have to shuffle, so you simple negated any "to-the-top" tutor like Mystical Tutor . The cardsbaren't modern legal, unfortunately.

Fetchlands and shocklands are in quite a reasonable price range now and can help smooth out your land base as well, it’s usually pretty good to have some “free” shuffle effects. Or if that isn’t an option, at least Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are quite helpful for that as well.
A couple more big mana extra turn cards like Time Stretch could help.
Jace is ok here, but something like Saheeli, Sublime Artificer would be better as you’ll be casting a ton of non-creature spells and making a lot of tokens. Even Monastery Mentor can also help with that as well.
Hopefully this gives you some ideas to go with the deck if you want to keep it running. Good luck.

Hi and thanks for your suggestions. Narset's Reversal really is a good card I just missed out. Didnt think of these interactions. Also getting rid of 1-2 fatties might be a good idea while including Chord of Calling . What kept me from adding Mystical Tutor and Worldly Tutor is, that i have to shuffle my library and put the card on top. So copying the spell doesnt work unless I can draw a card in between. Even without the copy potential, the cards are good though, so I will consider playing them. When I first saw the Storm-Kiln Artist in the spoiler, I thought WOW good UC for the deck. But after a bit of pondering, I realized, that I will have a 2/2 critter for 4 Mana without any impact, that will mostly die before creating treasures. So I decided not to play it. Roiling Regrowth and Force of Vigor are worth a bit of pondering, that might be true. Yeah and I already added some of the Lands in the paper version.
Thanks for your help, I really appriciate it!
