Opt

Instant

Scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)

Draw a card.

legendofa Yep, for sure, but I do think that equips have the same limit as enchants in that they just are not that powerful on their own, so cards can have broken effects that are dependent on equips/enchants and be fine.

And right, I'm not saying I have some world breaking enchant combo or anything, just that design to push enchantments is limited by the fact that enchantresses could run away with formats if enchants were printed to be as good as other cards. Take Mishra's Bauble it's a pain as an artifact sure, but if it was exactly the same, 0 mana but an enchantment, you'd go +1 card on Sythis, Harvest's Hand. Or if it was an equip (ha, somehow) then it would push Sram, Senior Edificer to the moon. I mean, people play Sram already with just the worst equips ever printed, just because they cost 0 : ) Or what if something like Opt was an enchant? You'd be playing solitaire very fast with Sanctum Weaver and Concordant Crossroads and Sythis.

The point I was trying to make was that enchants have been typically underpowered, which lead to them printing enchant support that was way better than support for other card types, which then kinda keeps enchants having to be underpowered to not be overpowered.

Hey thanks! This is definitely one of my favorite decks as it does so much. For my play group, it has a very quick wincon and generally does so in between turns 10-15, against a lot of control it usually still wins before turn 20. Adding things like Opt and Preordain would for sure make that faster, anyone looking at this deck should highly consider those, but it might get this deck banned in my group.

As for the mana costs, I have a lot of mana rocks in here and haven't had any high CMC issues yet. Personally I have never been a big fan of one-and-done spells I prefer to build with permanents and things with triggered or activated abilities. I like free things and a lot of triggers, it's a common theme in all my decks lol.

Thanks for the great suggestions I look forward to hearing more of them!

Cool deck!!
Would you consider running any 1-drop cantrips? Like Brainstorm, Preordain, Opt, etc? Maybe over some of your 6 drops to help lower that mana curve.
Just a thought, cheers and have fun!!!

What's worst about Halimar Depths is that if you don't like the three cards, you get to shuffle the crap back on top...Nope. I'm either going to Opt or Dimir Charm. I'm going to sideboard the Black Sun's Zenith and opt for 2 Contagion Engine and keep the negatives on that side of the board.

Have you thought about running some of the various Opt and Portent variants out there? to get a Noyan Dar tigger and filter your topdeck seems good, I love playing them in Talrand, they're great early game when you kept a dud hand (I swear sometimes it's like I zone out, keep a bad hand and just regain my senses when it's time for my first turn), and they're good later when they're almost a free trigger.

I could be wrong, but I'd play Dig Through Time or Treasure Cruise over Glimpse of Freedom. I actually like both Delve spells in a deck that likes to cast spells.

If you like Propaganda effects, there is War Tax, which is similar, but can be used during any player's turn, so it's really useful if there is an opponent you cannot let swing, and it's very funny if there is an Archenemy that uses attacking. Another way to brutally discourage most decks from attacking (at least for a cycle or two) is Mass Diminish, a card that probably should see more play in decks that attack. I still can't believe they printed Diminish to last a whole turn cycle, not just that turn, it can also just get a player killed in addition to hampering their attacks.

Cool deck, I bet there have been some very, very memorable casts of Tragic Arrogance, that's really good in Noyan.

Very solid build on a budget and I love the theme! I posted some comments on my Jorn deck page in response to yours. So for here, and focusing on simply card draw and protection, I recommend these cards because they're cheap and have never let me down:

  1. Joint Exploration - its like Growth Spiral and Opt rolled into one
  2. The Cruelty of Gix - because of the new "Read Ahead" mechanic, this thing lets you tutor for any card at the small price of 3 life (typical when you're in the color of Black), and also has graveyard recursion which is what your deck is trying to do.
  3. Diabolic Vision - probably THE best scry/draw card in Dimir colors and runs about $0.50
  4. Expedition Map - tutors for ANY land
  5. Tempt with Discovery - also tutors for ANY land, and usually within a game you'll get +1 or +2 additional lands off this cast
  6. Sunstone - $0.25 card from Ice Age that gives you a Fog effect when you need it
  7. Viridian Revel - great against folks playing treasure-heavy decks, allowing you to draw every time they sac a treasure
  8. Scrying Sheets - a bit out of your budget, being roughly $5-6, but its soooooooo good in Snow decks

SniperFrog Overmaster is a complete work horse in this deck! The prevelance of Ad Nauseam, Doomsday, Intuition, and Mnemonic Betrayal makes it a great thing to draw into and cast at all points of the game.

Black Market Connections is insane value in my opinion, being able to draw and ramp every turn for the low price of 3 life per turn is pushed lol.

Plunge into Darkness is hit-or-miss, and I consider replacing it pretty often. With so many other 1-card wincons in the deck, it's really only good for grabbing a missing piece for your Thassa's Oracle combo.

Opt can be great off-curve for drawing into an answer for a threat that you need to address immediately via tutor, or for expediting an Ad Nauseam. If I'm lucky enough to have Emergence Zone on the field, it can enable some very sneaky wins as well.

I consider Faithless Looting and Careful Study all the time, but I can't quite decide what to cut for them...

Thanks for the +1!

I'm curious to hear how Overmaster has performed for you. My Doomsday list doesn't have access to red, but I'd definitely give it a shot if I could. Black Market Connections also seems pretty sick. Has it lived up to it's cost? Plunge into Darkness is sick as well. Is it as good as I hoped? I haven't had a chance to pick one up.

Have you considered Thought Scour and its older brother Mental Note? In my experience, they give access to a pretty efficient pile that costs only in most situations. Both might not be necessary, but at least one might be decent. Opt seems a little weak to me, so I would consider one of these as a replacement.

I might have missed it, but is there a reason you're not running the first Faithless Looting effect? Frantic Search and Careful Study are also options for this.

+1. Love seeing people out here experimenting with Doomsday!
