Overflowing Insight Discussion
2 months ago
Welcome to Magic the Gathering, where magical ..... well, you know Btw. The strategy you are reffering to is known as Aristocrats.
Rings of Brighthearth - Synergizes with your commander. If you are were to add fetchlands (lands which grab other basic lands from the deck) such as Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs and others, you can get 2 lands for each fetchland by using rings. You sacrifice the fetchland putting the ability on the stack, then pay 2 mana and copy the ability with rings.
Imp's Mischief - This card does a lot of 2 mana. Lots of spells in MTG target. Removal such as Path to Exile, draw spells like Overflowing Insight, extra turns like Time Warp and even Counterspells target. A cool thing you can do aside from redirecting a spell that has 1 target is the following..... You cast your commander, they cast Counterspell, targetting your commander. You then cast imp's mischief, changing the target of the counterspell to imp's mischief. Imp's mischief resolves. Counterspell tries to resolve and counter imp's mischief but because it is removed from the stack, the counterspell does nothing. Then your commander resolves. Very useful card! Do not overlook it!
I see you already have some decent tutors which is good. Tutors ensure consistency, help you get a combo like Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond. They also help you get whatever you need when you need it, it is black's greatest strength in EDH. Now to discuss weaknesses.....
Black has almost no way to get rid of artifacts and enchantments. If an opponent plays Rest in Peace or something similar, you will find yourself in a tough position. As such, having cards such as Blast Zone, Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Ugin, the Ineffable, Meteor Golem, Ratchet Bomb, Lux Cannon and others can be extremely useful.
I don't know what your meta (the group of people you play with) are like and how powerful their decks are, this seems pretty casual. There are lots of cuts and many more cards you can add depending on what you're going for exactly. If you want ideas of other cards to add and/or what to cut, let me know. Mono black EDH is my favorite.

Brand new user here, brand new player (been toying with MTG Arena to figure out builds I want to invest in).
I've been playing around with Omniscience . I've seen the build that combos it with Overflowing Insight to make the opponent deck out, but that just doesn't seem fun to play with or against. Instead, I've been trying to play as many big creatures as possible and win the same turn in comes out.
Here's where I'm struggling: Omniscience is a big card, so I know the deck needs to ramp quickly. I also know I need to have a constant inflow of cards into my hand. Also fine. The problem is that, when I put together the ramp cards and the drawing engines, there isn't really any room in the deck for anything else. I can fit a few big hitters, and not much to protect me until turn 5+ when I can get all of this out. Here's what I'm running right now on Arena:
2x New Horizons
2x Mana Geode
The idea is to ramp, draw cards, get Samut, Tyrant Smasher out so all my big hitters have Haste and take the game the turn they come on. I know I'm doing something inefficiently, I just don't know what. Any help would be really appreciated here.

I would still suggest splashing black. If you did Doom Whisperer would be a really great addition to this deck, as you can get rid of as many cards from your deck as you have life. Creeping Chill would be excellent if you put more mill cards into the deck instead of card draw. I might cut the Search for Azcanta Flip because when it flips it puts the card on the bottom of your deck instead of your graveyard. I would add an Overflowing Insight for top end drawing power and go up to four copies of Jace, Wielder of Mysteries as your deck is kind of built around him.

You don't have much combo hate in your main, I would cut some of the Lifegain cards to add some countermagic.
JTMS is still crazy, proably could use some, but not neccesary.
I would also check the gatherer to see if there are any older modern legal cards that are similar to Wheel and Deal , there were a lot of cards that looked pretty questionalble. Good Luck!

This is a forcefeed mill deck that absolutely wrecks people. It’s a lot of fun to play. It uses a combination of Smothering Tithe , Overflowing Insight and Induced Amnesia to force my opponent to draw his whole deck. Games typically end with my opponent conceding, hence the name Forcefeed to Concede!
I could really use some help developing the sideboard though. What does this deck need? What is it weak against? Your help is appreciated.
