vitamintuna, you are absolutely correct that the deck is not optimum and runs some seriously jank cards. You’ve made some very good recommendations for cantrips and counters. Also, I have already been playtesting outside of this list with Bident of Thassa (and Reconnaissance Mission) and they will provide excellent card draw. I really appreciate your recommendations on mana rocks, some of which are already in the mail :) I also appreciate your sample list. It is helpful. I only really disagree regarding Mystical Tutor—-the card improves playability and efficiently winning substantially. To be honest, the deck ran even better with both it and Personal Tutor but was then over the $75 limit :( I am, however looking at some transmute cards as an option. Your decklist looks solid for the long-game even, whereas my goal is getting the combo out on turn four with enough counter magic to protect it. I will be rebuilding substantially with mana acceleration per your suggestions and I will revisit the cantrips as well. I appreciate your thoughtful response and the time it took you to rebuild an example deck. Thank you.

ChickenBoy13 Thanks for the input. This deck is a lot of fun to play. As for Mystical Tutor, it is unfortunately banned in Legacy. It is otherwise superior to Personal Tutor, and this very deck used to run it before the ban.

I love your kobolds deck, by the way.

This looks like a fun deck. It reminds me of my kobold deck (Tucker's Kobolds).

By the way, Mystical Tutor is a slightly more budget version of Personal Tutor for those who would prefer shelling out $50 instead of $100 on tutors.

If you're looking for a less budgety version of this deck you might want to consider Mystical Tutor, Cyclonic Rift, and MAYBE a Snapcaster Mage. Overall, great deck!

mynameisfifi, your eyes do no deceive you. Memory Leak is a hard hitter for a whopping $0.01, not to mention 2 CMC (!!!)

Including cards such as Memory Leak leaves budget for mega-bombs such as Mystical Tutor and Merchant Scroll. These cards alone eat up 1/3 of the budget. The tutors and combo pieces Together eat up 2/3 of the cost of the deck. This deck pinches pennies, hence Memory Leak.

On your decisive win-turn, Memory Leak will do just fine. Plus the artwork is rad.

I'm not sure if I'd consider Mystical Tutor (or any other $20+ card) budget.

If you're including Neoform then Enigmatic Incarnation and Prime Speaker Vannifar should probably be included.

Jack-Frost on It's Not Too Expensive, You're Too Cheap

Kalamata If you get to 4 experience counters then you can cast Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, or Seething Song and copy it with Reiterate. At four counters Mizzix will reduce the spell and buyback cost to just 2 red mana (Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, and Seething Song will produce more than 2). Therefore you produce infinite mana, rack up your storm count as high as you want, and then cast Banefire for the win. The storm count only really matters for Temporal Fissure, and Thousand-Year Storm is more of a bait than a mandatory win con (I usually win without it), but that's the main combo.

You can grab almost all of the pieces with Firemind's Foresight (Either Mystical Tutor (To grab Banefire), Whispers of the Muse (assuming you have 5 experience counters), or a counterspell for 1, Desperate Ritual for 2, and Reiterate on 3).

You can also win through Enter the Infinite and either Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.

Past in Flames, Mystic Retrieval, Snapcaster Mage, and Mizzix's Mastery give you redundancy and let you keep going even if someone stops or counters you (Though that is part of the reason we run so many counter spells).

All in all, the deck plays very quiet and unassuming until it's ready, at which point it explodes.

MurderForBrunch on Muldrotha "Super Budget" The Gravetide

I think it really depends on how often do you see those cards and how important they are to your game plan. The thing I like about the Codex Shredder opposed to something like Eternal Witness or let alone something like Regrowth is that the Shredder has additional value, it's almost like it draws a card each of your turns with Muldrotha out.

It also totally hoses tutors that tutor cards to the top like Mystical Tutor, and if the opponent is not expecting that it's pretty cool! hahaha
