Retraced Image


Reveal a card in your hand, then put that card into play if it has the same name as a permanent.

Cut an island for Retraced Image. It is a style ramp in mono . It does not work with Mystic Sanctuary.

You have tutors ;) One sided taxes are always worth it.

It is to tutor for ANY card in a color that struggles to tutor beyond instant/sorcery. I tend to run this in mono Blue, Green, Red and/or White because these colors can only narrowly tutor.

This is a solid first EDH deck! Straight forward combo.

Retraced Image would act as ramp with that many basic lands.

Back to Basics a hefty tax that you don't have to pay.

Planar Portal the only tutor you are missing.

Retraced Image is a hilarious way to ramp in mono blue

Retraced Image would be neat tech alongside all those Persistent Petitioners and basic islands.

If you like stealing creatures and have access to Blink Thassa, you might like Callous Oppressor. I'd also look at Helm of Possession for the same reasons. TBH I think I'd run Sower of Temptation over Gilded Drake with your Commander (Drake is a great card, but at least if you kill off Sower's creature you can just flicker Sower to get a new creature, at which point you can flicker Sower to steal something else), either way it's also worth a look.

If you're looking for ramp in Blue, I'm a fan of the usually clowned-on Dreamscape Artist, Myriad Landscape and Retraced Image, but I think it's probably a reasonable choice to run stuff like Arcane Signet/Fellwar Stone if you're struggling to get your ramp numbers high enough. A sneaky trick I heard about from The Command Zone (it's a Youtube EDH channel) is that you can use creature lands like Mishra's Factory or Faerie Conclave as a form of Blue ramp if you can copy them when they are creatures, Magic has few issues with cloning/copying lands if they are also creatures. Another unusual form of 'ramp' is to use the odd card like Walking Atlas to cheat extra lands in, but you probably would want a few more lands or card draw.

As one-off theft effects go, I find Bribery, Inevitable Betrayal and Cultural Exchange to all be pretty solid, Exchange does want you to have token generators, but Blue isn't bad at making small tokens. Bribery effects can be a LOT bigger than a theft effect, so Betrayal is deceptively powerful vs the right type of deck, but most decks have a few really strong creatures at least, and you should have multiple opponents to choose from.

It's not a Theft effect, but Rite of Replication is hilarious in practice, getting a single copy for 4 is pretty much market rate, getting 5 copies for 9 is crazy when it happens.

Haha @ unoriginal. Harassing? Go take your anti anxiety meds, you snot nosed little brat.

Why did you post this deck on the mainpage? To show off your amazing unoriginal build? I'm commenting because it was posted publicly. I once played Talrand. Thought I would spitball ideas. Didn't realize you were so passive aggressive and petty.

Combo? You keep mentioning combo... Why?Isochron Scepter is just a value engine especially in a deck with CMC 2 or less. Is $10 "not budget friendly" fine, I get that. Otherwise, it should be in.

One more unoriginal spitball:

Retraced Image ramp for mono blue... Original enough?

SufferFromEDHD on EDH mill what ?!?!?

Retraced Image really good with a lot of basic lands and Persistent Petitioners.

Always wanted to make something with this dude but I never knew what to do. This strange pile of cards is beyond interesting. It's a cohesive strategy with focus. Inexpensive but it gives off competitive vibes.

Seeing Anvil of Bogardan and Smokestack as the few assisting artifact engine pieces really lured me into this enchantment based deck. Cut an Island for Null Rod!

Your maybe board:

Treachery yes.

Windfall Yes.

Temporal Trespass YES.

River Kelpie fits the commander and strategy so well.

Everything else I was indifferent about but I have never piloted this list so you would know better than I.

I'm just going to spitball some cards that came to mind that might fit your unique deck design:

Forbid a reusable hard counter that feeds your discard/graveyard strategy.

Retraced Image big fan of basic lands with Back to Basics strategy. This bulk rare from Torment is mono blue ramp.

Academy Ruins and Expedition Map more mono blue ramp.

Long-Term Plans my favorite blue tutor.

Deserted Temple more versatile Minamo.

Awesome brew!
