RiotRunner789 on Insight into Budget Card Draw ...

Glad hejtmane mentioned Bounty of the Luxa.

Thoughts on taking out a Primal Amulet  Flip in a Zaxara deck for Bounty of the Luxa or for an Insight? The deck has 32 instants/sorceries but by the time primal could come on line, I'd rather have been drawing cards.

Side note, when I went hunting for my one copy of Bounty of the Luxa, I found it not with all my other rares but in a random deck box where, for some inexplicable reason, I kept 2 Hydroid Krasis and a couple Risk Factor's. Fodder for the trade binder.

Alright, first of all you are not allowed to play this deck this way. The way i see it, you are playing two flip lands without playing their flip side. Thats not the way they work. i suggest you to google the rulings here.

Some cuts: Primal Amulet  Flip (You are only running 9 instants and sorceries), Heartless Pillage, because discarding is not the best strategy in EDH and seems to be a little bit out of the focus of this deck, same goes for Raiders' Wake, Sanguine Sacrament and instead Heliod's Intervention.

Add some single target removal (you are in Orzov, which has the best cards of this category, e.g. Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, more ramp like Sol Ring (e.g. Talisman of Hierarchy) and play around 36 lands.

Your average converted mana cost is low enough to go to 33 or 34 if you had mana dorks.


    Rashmi, Eternities Crafter: Rashmi is incremental advantage. You and both know that you are going to play cards on other people’s turns, so why not get free stuff for doing so? Wavebreak Hippocamp does the same thing if you want more of this effect.
    Spellseeker: Spellseeker grabs most of the instants and sorceries in your deck and more food for Prime Speaker
    Thing in the Ice  Flip: I noticed that you don’t have ways to protect yourself. If played earlier, you can flip Thing in the Ice and reset that battlefield. It was dumb in other formats, it’s dumb in EDH as well.

Instants and Sorceries

    Swan Song: Another good counter spell, but you have that covered pretty well. Once again, no one cares about one 2/2 bird….no one…
    Nature's Lore: This is only and grabs any forest onto the battlefield. Most of the time, you are going to tutor for Forest, so why not grab Breeding Pool instead?



    Raging Ravine: Ok, it has your colors. Are you ever going to activate this man-land? Also, it comes in tapped. Gross….
    Arch of Orazca: I think Arch is better in decks that lack access to card draw. You’re in . Drawing cards, most of the time, is not going to be a problem for you.
    Frilled Mystic and Mystic Snake: I’ve fallen for this trap too. I don’t want to pay for a counterspell on a weak 2/2 body. Compare these two cards to other mana spells like Cryptic Command. This cards counters, protects, and draws cards. I prefer utility creatures with more flexibility.

@eisgnom09: I am in the process of upgrading the deck and the scepter will be going in. But Dramatic Reversal does not need the scepter to be good in this deck. Often times you will have 5+ mana rocks which will net you extra mana to keep on digging. I used to run Thousand-Year Storm and Primal Amulet  Flip too, and often won the game with a flashback of Devil's Play with huge amounts of mana from Dramatic Reversal copied a bunch of times.

As much as I love the idea of a creatureless Voltron commander, take it from one my many Omnath iterations, it becomes a silver bullet situation more often than not.

If you do want to keep creature count to a minimum, I'd recommend a suite of things that make creatures for your instants like Young Pyromancer, Shark Typhoon, Metallurgic Summonings, Murmuring Mystic.

Alternatively, can answer token decks with stuff like Silent Arbiter, Caverns of Despair, Crawlspace.

Also, since he gets his +1/+1 counters from copying instants, I would be remiss not to recommend Primal Amulet  Flip and Swarm Intelligence. And if you do decide to include a token package, Zada, Hedron Grinder becomes an extra bonkers addition.
