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.

Coronoro on Kenrith the cycled King

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.

MiIo on When I equip a creature …

Playing against Lightning Greaves equipped on a creature I had Astral Slide and New Perspectives and 7 cards in hand, two of which had cycling. My opponent tried to equip the Greaves to another creature, in response I cycled and used Astral Slide’s effect on this second creature. Now that the equip ability lost it’s target what happens to the equipment? Is it still equipped to the first creature?

Hey, the list looks good to start off with. I would recommend building it more focused around New Perspectives by adding some tutors that can grab it. you might want to make it more focused on turning through your deck to get the combo kill rather than beating your opponents down with tokens. I would recommend that you look at edh rec for some ideas. I would recommend that you take out Anointed Procession, Improbable Alliance, Lightning Rift, Ominous Seas, Shark Typhoon, Zenith Flare, Windfall, Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip, Eternal Dragon, and Shabraz, the Skyshark. In addition to tutors, you might want some more ramp, some better payoffs, Mulldrifter and Cloudblazer to synergize with your blink effects. I feel that most of the cards in the deck won't matter much because it is a rare thing that you will cast them, therefore you should try to keep the cost of cycling cheap in your deck. It's also okay if some of the cards with cycling are situational so the cards that have cycling can be chosen just by personal preference, play-style, and playgroup. I hope that this advice was helpful.
