River's Rebuke Discussion

austintayshus on Barnum and Bailey and Kefnet and Mu Yanling

Well technically, Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer can make tokens.

I have Flood of Tears because I couldn't think of any other board wipes in blue. River's Rebuke could be a good replacement but that's going to rotate out soon.

Flood of tears for this deck is usually a last resort. If I find myself in a situation where I need to cast it, I seldom have 4 or more non-token permanents.

Do you have any suggestions on what I should replace Flood of Tears with?

I enjoy the Kefnet Turns build, haven't seen it before for this commander and I think its rather neat. You should focus exclusively on assembling your win and remove the extra side cards, like your mill sub-theme. I also think you should replace expensive removal and interaction with cheaper pieces, as you're less likely to cast them off the top with Kefnet. I also think you should add in more ways to discard and also tutor to top of deck. Your combo requires a handful of specific cards and also to be in a specific spot in your library, so topdeck manipulation and tutors help immensely.

My complete list of changes would be

Dismiss -> Counterspell

Everdream -> Ponder

Exclude -> Arcane Denial

Precognitive Perception -> Concentrate (You're never copying the addendum with Kefnet)

Supreme Will -> Mana Leak

Thought Collapse -> Mental Misstep (Every deck runs 1 cmc spells so Misstep is unbelievable value for EDH)

River's Rebuke -> Wipe Away

Zndrsplt's Judgement -> Vapor Snag (That card is hard to link to :O )

Mistfire Adept -> Long-Term Plans

Riverwise Augur -> Sleight of Hand

Niblis of Frost -> Mystical Tutor

Drowned Secrets -> Serum Visions

Fraying Sanity -> Preordain

Precognition Field -> Careful Study

Psychic Corrosion -> Fabricate

I think its worth noting

That to combo off, you need Library + Aminatou's Aug + Dino + Turn card + Commander. That requires 4 cards outside your commander, 3 of which are exactly specific. Finding another enabler or outlet to reuse your turn spells or another way to put cards on top would help the consistency of this deck a lot. Running more draw and tutors to topdeck also lets you value copy a turn spell to start chaining turns, and even if you don't hit an infinite loop getting 3 or 4 extra turns will get you much closer to establishing the lock. You should shave off alternate wincons and focus on getting infinite turns, because once you have them you've won.

River's Rebuke has seen some play and its a little pricey CMC-wise for what it does, but is a fine budget card. Rapid Hybridization along with Pongify are format staples in blue. Chaos Warp , Beast Within and Curse of the Swine are all inexpensive options w/Curse having an exile effect tied to it.

For additional blink in these colors, Deadeye Navigator is king.

All of these options are under $5 currently.

Thanks xaarvaxus!! Titania is definitely out of my price range :(

I'm going to lean more into tribal elemental with +1/+1 counters. I gotta edit this but Gargos, Bioessence Hydra, Ral have been removed. Adding in the uncommon Chandra p/w that just came out. Also going to add Risen Reef (wow that card is a powerhouse), Young Pyromancer, Conjurer's Closet . I need more blink options for Omnath (the punishment, the PUNISHMENT) as well as some solid removal options. I rarely play blue, if ever, and I am still wildly unfamiliar with options.

I will probably replace Xenograft with Arcane Adaptation , add in Rapid Hybridization and Plaxcaster Frogling . How is River's Rebuke for removal?

I needed a board clearer for when the opponent can outpace my control. Flowing much better now after this latest alteration.

River's Rebuke is solid for removing a single player's stuff.
