Rhystic Study


Whenever an opponent casts a spell, you may draw a card unless that player pays .

Would you consider either Rhystic Study or Smothering Tithe? Would you be willing to spend 2 more mana to replace Grand Abolisher with Myrel, Shield of Argive or 1 more mana to replace Despark with Anguished Unmaking, or is keeping a low mana curve a high priority for this deck?

Wow. You really pay attention to the details. I will be adding 50% basic lands.

Artifacts, creatures and lands are regularly targeted in this deck. Teferi's Response is jank I just wanted to try out because this is mono blue lands. Draw 2 cantrip is in a league of its own. The look on your opponents face... Priceless. For everything else, there's MasterCard.

Buyback is quite possibly my favorite keyword in EDH. Reusable effects are pretty good. Extra turns are pretty good. The 3 lands can be recycled by Crucible.

Shapesharer = pure profit. How I missed this is beyond me as I know it's in the collection. The synergy with Training Grounds makes it certified Moonfolk.

Foil was only in because Island Misdirection is superior in everyway.

Will be adding Rhystic Study

Thinking about cantrips, I see Necropotence, Rhystic Study, and Phyrexian Arena in here, so there's some drawing power. Broadly speaking, I agree with the second person you talked to. These enchantments provide more advantage over time than spending a card to draw a single extra card. You can use graveyards as a resource, too. As far as cards like Dimir Doppelganger and Reanimate are concerned, everybody's graveyards are just extensions of your hand. So aside from the Preordain/Ponder/similar stuff in here that's good card fixing in general, cantripping isn't especially necessary. Unless you use massive amounts of cantrips (and some commanders are okay with that), they don't offer that much thinning, and simply playing with good knowledge and fundamentals will give you much more of an advantage. It wouldn't really hurt anything to include a few, but don't rely on them to break the game open in this deck.

Would Rhystic Study,Mystical Tutor, Archmage's Charm, and Worldly Tutor be a good addition? I'm following the advice on 3 mana so I might add it at my Simic deck.

Deck is SOLID AF. Given your deck is very reliant upon your commander, do you feel you have enough ramp to bring him out quickly enough? Mind Stone might be a potential consideration to increase your artifact count that could bring him out more quickly from 5 to 6. Maybe swapping out commander sphere or better yet, desertion? The former is great but doesn't bring your commander out sooner. The latter is fun but holding up 5 mana and being restricted to only getting creatures/artifacts, one that might not have synergy with your overall plan might not be ideal.

Maybe Mother of Runes? - Protection

How has Inventors' Fair been treating you? Given you have about 14 artifacts or so, do you trigger it reliably? Perhaps maybe swap it or even the exotic orchard which doesn't necessarily tap for your colors for Blinkmoth Well? Blinkmoth can mess with opposing artifact synergies and most importantly, make your Static orb one sided.

Fierce Guardianship in your maybeboard seems amazing given it can protect your commander at 0 cost, since your reliant upon your commander. Maybe even a Rhystic Study or even a Smothering Tithe for some good value?

^EDIT: I missed your $ exclusions regarding fierce gaurdianship

I would love your thoughts regarding your thought process. I'm scared to ever come across this deck.

Isochron Scepter with a counterspell or silence.

More suggestions: Dovin's Veto, SwanSong, An Offer You Can't Refuse, Counterspell, Rhystic Study, Remand, Reprieve, Unwind.

The deck currently lacks card advantage, and especially engines that stay on board. Malcolm, Alluring Scoundrel isn't card advantage, but is selection, and can end up casting some of your top end for free. The Reality Chip is very impressive as a Future Sight that you can pay for across multiple turns and hold up mana/spend it on other things. Dragonlord Ojutai and Iymrith, Desert Doom have been impressive to me as card advantage/beaters to close games.

Fun looking deck! If I hadn't already built a Humans deck, I'd probably have used Eowyn as a commander, but I ended up using Katilda, Dawnhart Prime as my commander.

Two Humans I use in my deck that might be handy here are Coppercoat Vanguard, who gives us some extra protection to all your Humans, and Moon-Blessed Cleric, who can tutor up an Enchantment to the top of your deck. Great to grab either card draw like Rhystic Study or a booster like Cathars' Crusade.

Cheers m8, happy holidays!

So having tested Sauron, the Dark Lord into the dirt since his release, I think you're gonna need to get him on the board waaay faster than this list is currently doing if you really want to be mean like that. I'd recommend a few of the following "means" lol:

Rocks: Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Indulgence, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Fellwar Stone & Springleaf Drum

Rituals: Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Culling the Weak, Burnt Offering, Sacrifice, Rain of Filth, Bubbling Muck, High Tide, Rite of Flame, Infernal Plunge, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual & Seething Song.

Cost Reducers: Nightscape Familiar, Sapphire Medallion, Jet Medallion, Ruby Medallion, Cloud Key & Urza's Incubator.

And then there are other value pieces like Conqueror's Flail to go along with The Reaver Cleaver to help you get out of hand once he's summoned, & Faerie Mastermind to draw you cards while your commander builds your board from your opponents actions. Mystic Remora is also great in this sense and is still pretty cheap compared to Rhystic Study. Teferi's Ageless Insight is another banger post-commander that should be considered imo, especially since you can't run Necropotence as efficiently as other decks can.

For more villainy, consider Dauthi Voidwalker, Opposition Agent, Praetor's Grasp, Mnemonic Betrayal, Bribery, Acquire & maybe even something like Empress Galina to really peeve your pod.
