Profane Tutor


Suspend 2— (Rather than cast this card from your hand, pay and exile this with two time counters. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast this without paying this card's mana cost.)

Search your library for a card, put that card into your hand, then shuffle your library.

To be more clear: Empty/non-existent mana costs can't be paid, but Dream Halls's ability circumvents the mana cost on the spell entirely. This is a similar principle to how the Suspend ability on cards like Profane Tutor etc. is able to work in the first place.

Dream Halls allows casting spells by discarding cards to pay if they match a color. could i cast a spell like Profane Tutor or Wheel of Fate with it by discarding a card that shares a color?

Profane Tutor can replace Expedition Map pretty effectively. You can search up any card you might need, land or otherwise.

Ardees on Its Just a Flesh Wound (Budget cEDH Meren)

Consider playing also Manglehorn, Collector Ouphe, Nature's Claim, and some cheap removals, which you seem to lack.

I think the decks has largely improved since you posted it. Now I think you should focus on your strategy. Gaining exp counters or reanimate isn't a strategy per se, but it's the engine that should get your strategy running. I see you run the Magistrate's Scepter and Coretapper combo. I think this is a much more valuable combo, which is being played in competitive decks too. Also don't get focused too much on getting exp counters. Assume you have infinite: you don't reanimate infinite creatures, nor an infinitely powerful creature. You reanimate one creature at the end of each of your turn, assuming (which is unlikely) that Meren is left unscathed. So consider exp counters a facilitator toward your strategy rather than the goal in itself (hence why Spider Spawning isn't that valuable, in my opinion).

If you run a combo, I suggest playing more (cheap) tutors, such as Final Parting, Mausoleum Secrets, Unmarked Grave, Buried Alive, Profane Tutor, Wishclaw Talisman. Also, if you decide to run a combo, then other cards in your deck should aim at achieving that rather than do things that are separate from it, meaning you should include all 1-mana elves, and all cheap mana dorks (both enchantements and artifacts) to help you achieve your strategy.

You can also just decide to go aggro, but then I'd simply suggest to play a budget version of Skullbriar, the Walking Grave rather than Meren.

In any case, your mana curve is still quite high, 3.26 essentially means you play one spell each turn, possible no spells for the first 2 turns.

Gidgetimer on The "A" Team (Tayam Rube Goldberg Combo)

The "buff the Druid" line of play is a bit niche, isn't the main focus of this Tayam deck, and requires 2 specific cards; that is why there is only 1 card slot devoted to it. There are six other cards I have seen commonly used to buff the Druid and three more that jaymc1130 suggested. So that I don't draw into dead cards I don't run them, only Gift of Granite. It may be confirmation bias or that I don't feel that one piece of a combo is a dead card if there are 10 tutors that can find the other piece. I have only been disappointed to see Gift of Granite once. On the flip side, it is responsible for a good number of the wins that the deck gets. Again this may be because I will tutor for it when Devoted Druid is out. The other druid engines require two additional cards making this the easiest one to tutor.

About the tutor situation- Money is a little bit of an issue, I'm not the type that will ever say "money is no object" about a game. Having said that, Demonic Tutor is already in the deck. The tutors that I want for the deck that I have not purchased and am waiting on either a reprint or a bonus at work are Vampiric Tutor and Enlightened Tutor. Vampiric will be a straight slot-in over Profane Tutor, and I'm not sure about Enlightened. It may get me to cut Pull from Eternity.

I went 2-2, won against Mill and Combo lost (narrowly) to Yawgmoth and Tron (which is always a rough matchup).

I think I will add back in 4x Profane Tutors, because even with 3-4 copies of Urborg and Cabal I didn’t reliably get it online enough.

I like it over the pseudo-Tron list, but there may be ways to merge the two better. Especially when it comes to mana sinks/payoffs.

Love it! This could benefit from a Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth manabase. Any opinions on Profane Tutor?
