Nexus of Fate


Take an extra turn after this one.

If Nexus of Fate would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal Nexus of Fate and shuffle it into its owner's library instead.

The text to put Approach of the Second Sun into it's owners library is part of the resolution of the spell, so if the spell is countered or otherwise fails to resolve it will not be applied and go to the appropriate zone (in this case the hand). Compare to a card like Nexus of Fate which is a replacement effect that applies when it tries to go to the graveyard, or Gaea's Blessing which is a triggered ability that triggers when it is put into the graveyard (though only from library, not from the stack). Nexus of Fate will shuffle in if it's countered by something like Counterspell.

Thank you for your comments there are some cards I will play test. My goal with the deck is to generate lots of tokens and try to win via combat. I already tried the combo with Nexus of Fate and I did not like it. You always win out of nothing with this loop and that is something we did not like in our playgroup. Do you see some cards that could be cut from the deck to get some more selfmill imside.

Wow, not sure how I managed to misread Nexus of Fate like that smh, thank you for that correction haha. That's what I get for trying to Magic while sleepy.

Now that I'm rested, let's try to suggest things again...fingers crossed lol.

A really great one that comes to mind is Evacuation. Continuously wiping the board of creatures AND giving you a way to consistently recast Chun-Li for more value is super good. Curfew would be another great way to do this if you're trying to keep the curve low. Filter Out seems like a great way for this deck to consistently control the board very heavily, too. Since this is essentially a graveyard deck, Mesmeric Orb, Windfall, Brain Freeze & Tolarian Winds are all worth considering for sure. Chain of Vapor is ridiculous here too, considering the sheer multi-utility with the Commander imho.

Being dependent on Combat, I'd say Reconnaissance is potentially an auto-include. Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar pulls weight here too, with it's baby cousin Cunning Evasion slotting in for 1 less mana if that matters.

Sorry if I goofed again with these further suggestions!

I think when you put Nexus of Fate in the graveyard their will be a replacement effect that shuffles it back in your library, so I don't think Chun-Li can exile it. The way I like to use Nexus of Fate in Chun-Li is to exile Mystical Tutor, which can find Nexus each turn for only U, but you'll still need to draw a card. You build up total mana by using cheaper extra turns spells that are one-and-done, once you've got Nexus going you should be able to take over. From testing the biggest issue is generating enough mana to go off, but I think you can technically get by with only 7 mana total, but you only have so many turns to find the lands needed to get you to 9 mana, which is the minimum iirc you can start looping Nexus (and have a way to draw it after tutoring). Azoth2099 I definitely have had to reread cards a bajillion times while trying to build Chun-Li, not only is she confusing but she also likes a lot of pretty confusing cards!

Since I always want Chun-Li to survive attacking I like Shadow Rift an awful lot, IMHO it's one of the better cards you can use with her. Leap is a nice backup option. If you are the kind of deck that can end up with a pretty full graveyard pretty easily I think Visions of Beyond can be pretty useful, at least it cares about all graveyards, drawing 3 for U is pretty sweet.

Hey man! Traumatize & Nexus of Fate will add the level of spice that you're looking for with this one for sure.

You pretty much just Traumatize yourself, cast your Commander, exile Nexus of Fate and win via infinite turns/combats. Cheers!

More modal counterspells: Confounding Riddle, Supreme Will (also Blue Elemental Blast/Hydroblast, depends on your meta though)

Discover the Impossible

Merchant Scroll

Spellbinder doesn't work with Rebound, but since Pakpatiq has flying and curves directly from this, I think It's worth considering (also, Nexus of Fate)

There are only fifteen cards with some variation of this text. One pops up every few years, with a cluster from 2009-2012 covering Progenitus, the Eldrazi Titans, and Worldspine Wurm. There was then a six-year gap to Nexus of Fate (which may or may not count for the question, since it's not a creature).

I'm not sure it's officially stopped being a mechanic. It's just used infrequently, and usually to denote a creature of apocalyptic power with an equally apocalyptic mana cost. If they have fully stepped away from this text, it's in favor of rewarding the card being cast, like the BFZ/OGW/EMN Eldrazi Titans, Apex Devastator, or The Tarrasque.

One more rev and talk about a strong new Synergy

  • Take out Nexus of Fate for Ledger Shredder and move Back to Basics to the sideboard. The Nexus is great casually, but if I am paying 7 mana for a spell it better win me the game. Nexus of fate just doesn’t do that. Ledger Shredder is another card draw engine, it gets you deeper in to the deck. In cases where nexus of fate sits dead in your hand doing nothing, ledger shredder can be on the field generating excellent value, and it is 5 cmc less. I understand that infinite turns will no longer be wincon, and I think that’s okay. Thassa’s and Aetherflux fill those roles well enough. I will be updating the guide soon to talk about these recent additions as well as remove irrelevant info.
  • Take out an Island for Lorien Revealed. Another deck thinning card that is basically still a land, but it has other synergies. The island cycling is another effect that can be copied by Virtue of Knowledge. This card can also be cast from the graveyard by Scholar of the Lost Trove. You will rarely hard cast this card, but you can in dire straits.

Speaking of Scholar of the Lost Trove, this card has some great synergy with recently added Orvar, the All-Form. When you cast Scholar of the lost trove while Orvar is on the battlefield, you can cast all bounce spells in your graveyard, then still get your value engine from the graveyard after that. If Unesh is on the field when this happens, you can get through a lot of your deck. If Aetherflux Reservoir is on the field you can get a large storm count. The cycle goes like this:

  1. Cast Scholar of the Lost Trove while Orvar, the All-Form is on the field.
  2. Scholar ETB cast a bounce spell from graveyard targeting Scholar.
  3. This triggers Orvar and makes a token copy of scholar.
  4. Return to step 2 for all bounce spells in your graveyard. If there are no bounce spells proceed to step 5.
  5. Cast a big payoff artifact like Caged Sun or Aetherflux Reservoir to end the cycle.

So in this stage of revision where I am ruthlessly cutting high cmc cards, I will probably not cut Scholar of the Lost Trove because it can be such a huge payoff card. It also makes you less likely to care about tossing your big artifacts in the bin during your BFOF because you might be able to get them back later with this card.
