New Perspectives


When New Perspectives enters the battlefield, draw three cards.

As long as you have seven or more cards in hand, you may pay rather than pay cycling costs.

You’re 100% right about the Cloud of Faeries! My mind was focused on reanimator too much I wasn’t thinking about how amazing the faeries would do in enabling deeper cycling digs. Thanks a ton for the suggestion!!!

Also I didn’t even know about the New Perspectives combo haha. Shows how much I look into combo these days. I used to do a lot of artifact combo when I first started edh but that’s since dropped off and haven’t really looked at any since I branched out into cycling. Glad I could offer something new for you to see.

Thanks for the upvote too I’m glad the deck caught your interest :)

Now to decide what to cut… lol

I was expecting a New Perspectives combo list, but pleasantly surprised. It can still storm off with paradigm shift, but the spread into reanimation and value gives the list some reach.

You could probably dip a little more into cycling lands if you used the basic landcycling cards, even though they aren't great, or cut lands with Street Wraith type stuff, but I can't say that is exactly better than whats here.

The only thing I'd look at dipping into is Cloud of Faeries as a combo option, or Gilded Light as a cheap 'not this turn' combo break.

Thank you for the suggestions. New Perspectives seems like a really good fit and its luckily one of the cards that are also in the Timeless Wisdom deck. I mainly intend to use Biomancer's Familiar for Kenrith, the Returned King as his abilities, especially the revive one can be quite costly.

The deck seems cool, I do not understand however the role of Heartstone and Biomancer's Familiar, as there is little creature with ativated abilities that will get discounts from this, in fact, the only 3 creatures getting use for this are Embodiment of Spring, Vizkopa Guildmage, and Kenrith, the Returned King, as cycling abilities will not be discounted, as the creature cards in your hand are not yet creatures.

I see you heavily go into the cycling abilities, cards like New Perspectives and Irencrag Pyromancer would greatly help you, one to turbo trhough your deck, the other to control the board a little.

Discovered an infinite combo by accident:

Drannith Stinger + Vedalken AEthermage + Wheel of Sun and Moon goes infinite if you have New Perspectives or Crystalline Resonance + Fluctuator .

New Perspectives seems like it would fit really well here and allow you to combo off easily. Getting three extra cards on top of it all seems outstanding.

Library of Leng really needs to make its way to the mainboard. This will allow you to do some pretty busted stuff.

Maybe Jeskai Ascendancy could come out, since you'll be cycling more than casting in your games anyways? I do see that it can be a combo piece, though.

Sacred Excavation also doesn't seem super strong for what it does.

Windfall is a great card, but won't your opponents benefit more from it than you if your hand is always full?

I really like this deck and was coming up with a similar brew, the thing about a deck like this is that Escape Protocol, Astral Slide and Astral Drift, and New Perspectives are more so your commander than what you have in the command zone. I see that you are using tutors to get over this hurdle, but I was wondering if you had considered any of the more Gavi Unique tutors as I would like to know your opinion on them. Long-Term Plans is a tutor that is usually pretty slow, but given you can draw that many cards in one rotation around the table, is it worth it? Another one is I considered was Drift of Phantasms for a 3 drop transmute spell. Library of Lat-Nam lacks Mana efficiency, but given this deck needs card draw and tutors, could it be worth it? Finally Archmage Ascension is a hard to get off the ground ultimate tutor but with Gavi already trying to do it's requirement, I think it may also be worth consideration.

I love this deck and appreciate any input on my suggestions. I look forward to seeing how you adjust it in the future.
