MurderForBrunch on Go with the Flow! Legacy High Tide

Hi mtgplayer100! First of all, thanks for commenting. I think Predict is quite good, specially having playsets of Brainstorm, Ponder and Preordain. As I was commenting before, Meditate is quite good while you're comboing off, but basically useless from turs 1 to 3, or even 4 sometimes. I can totally see what Milesfuzz suggests and adding a Meditate to the "wishboard", that should e totaly fine I think :)

The meta I'm facing is quite predictable, I'm playing a local league, with several rounds of opponents. For the next round I expect half of them to be playing Miracles or Control of some sort, and for sure some Delver lists. The Narset, Parter of Veils is absolutely a meta call, I don't think I would be running her (not even in the sideboard) agains an unknown meta. But being so packed with Control I think it's fine! I think after this league I'll be updating the list based upon an unknown meta, and changing it to be more versatile, and not so focused! :D

Thank you both a lot for commenting! It's been quite helpful!

I think Meditate probably should be a playset here. If you go off and fail, you're probably loosing anyway, so might as well make it easier. You could probably cut the Predicts and Narset, Parter of Veils for it. Predict is more like a control card for value later on, and since you don't really have anything to stall with, you want to set up the combo asap. Narset does seem really good, but feels more like a sideboard card here.

Hi Milesfuzz! Currently I'm playing in a local league, and the meta is more or less predictable. There's a bunch of Control/Miracles, some Temur Delver and a bunch of niche things. I think I like Pieces of the Puzzle quite a lot, at least more than the Snap in the main board. I considered Retraced Image but I don't see the meta as very aggressive.

On the other hand, Meditate is interesting! The problem I see with it is that, as you say, you can only cast it as you're comboing off. However I think I like Predict more milling unwanted cards from Brainstorm or Ponder for example, either early game, or while comboing off. It also has the upside of "goozling" opposing Mystic Sanctuary targets and things alike! Which admitedly, it won't come up often enough to justify it's inclusion by itself, but it's a nice upside of the card!

What I was considering these days is which pieces of graveyard hate I want in the sideboard. I think I like Grafdigger's Cage more because of Reanimator and Dreadhorde Arcanist, but stuff like Relic of Progenitus or Soul-Guide Lantern are able to draw cards in a pinch. What to you think?

Thanks a lot for your comment, it was super useful! :D

I would try to find room for a second Tainted Pact. I'm thinking possible cuts could be Predict, or Xantid Swarm, or another cantrip. Otherwise neat deck.

+1 from me, Continue brewing!

Any cantrip to open the Doomsday pile is fine, predict is just easy, but there are many more in the linked Doomsday primer in the description.

Let's say you open Predict Naming Laboratory Maniac .

  • Your lab man goes into the graveyard and you draw = Gitaxian Probe and Lion's Eye Diamond

  • Play your Led... Then go ahead and cast Probe in response to probe go ahead and crack Led for Discarding your hand and still Having Probe on the stack.

  • Probe resolves and draws you Yawgmoth's Will

  • Play Yawgmoth's Will with the 3x .

  • Play led from the yard and crack it for

  • Play Labman from the yard.

  • resolve draw spell from the Yard (like probe)

All this is interchangeable but this is one of the least Mana intensive piles i know of. Early on this is extremely fast but susceptible to counter-magic and removal hence all the different piles explained in the DD-Primer in the description that i urge every DD player to study carefully and practise!.

Been thinking about building dralnu with doomsday as a wincon.
I've been wondering what you think about Notion Rain as it counts to 4 by itself.
Since LED is way out of my price range i was going for a Predict pile anyways but once i saw Notion Rain i thought to myself, i just need to crack the pile with any draw one or draw two.
Then cast Notion Rain , mill Laboratory Maniac with the surveil plus the any other card if we cracked the pile with a draw one, draw Gitaxian Probe and Unearth and cast those for the win.

Bloodwater Entity is extremely useful here. Its on legs so you can flicker it or copy it. Other topdeck manipulation creatures Omenspeaker Sage Owl Spire Owl Sage of Epityr Augury Owl

Cards that let you see topdeck Lantern of Insight Goblin Spy Future Sight Magus of the Future

Cathartic Adept and similar mill effects can help you move past undesirable topdeck cards. Gives control when you can see enemy topdecks Pyxis of Pandemonium Ghoulcaller's Bell Drowner Initiate Hedron Crab Jace's Erasure Drowned Secrets Codex Shredder

If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

Why exactly isn't Predict in the above list, knowing that it's used in DD piles?

Was this an oversight?
