Riverwise Augur Discussion

dingusdingo on Budget Kefnet Turns

2 months ago

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.

You could try making a UG Turbo Lands deck, though without Jace it wouldn't be nearly as good; maybe make some proxies, or use Riverwise Augur . Modern - U/G Jace Turbo Lands is an example.

The core of it is a mix of Courser of Kruphix / Oracle of Mul Daya to let you play lands from on top of your library, then Brainstorm with Jace/Augur to put lands on top of your library (which you can then play) and keep useful cards. After ramping a bunch and drawing cards, you win with big Landfall creatures like Avenger of Zendikar , Embodiment of Insight , or Rampaging Baloths (which is pretty cool imo).

Oracle of Mul Daya is really expensive, so you might want to go all 4 Courser of Kruphix and play some Wayward Swordtooth or Llanowar Scout or something instead; if your friend only plays casually that would probably work okay. Or just make proxies.

Dream Cache is really just a bad brainstorm.

Conch Horn does this as well but high cmc for the ability

Riverwise Augur is a brainstorm on legs

and I'm going to assume you have already got a Mystical Tutor but Personal Tutor is slightly less known

InutilisVisEst: I see. For the lower cmc, I do run Baleful Strix which serves a similar function as Elite Guardmage . Probably the only creature I could see challenging Cloudblazer 's spot is Riverwise Augur .

hullos, good ideas, but I think you didn't read Clone Legion well, since it can also copy an opponents board, I will still probably take it out, because its too expensive, also, Riverwise Augur goes infinite with Karn's Temporal Sundering , so I may keep him in for just a while.

a few weaker cards in the deck are: Riverwise Augur , Clone Legion , Jace's Sanctum , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots (one or the other).

Riverwise Augur : you want to be playing your commander on turn four and this guy does not get enough value to play after or in place of kefnet on turn four.

Clone Legion : most of the creatures you have would die from the legendary rule and you rarely will have good cards to copy with it.

Jace's Sanctum : same problem as Riverwise Augur

Nezahal, Primal Tide : this guy is not bad but seems that he might just get hit with a kill spell as soon as he hits the board because your deck has few other good targets. there might be better cards to take out than this guy.

Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots you really don't need both of these since you already have some counter spells to protect your guys on board to both seems like overkill.

those are just my suggestion on cards to take out, it is still your deck take out what you want to.

I'm not sure how good this suggestion will be, but here goes - You may want to consider adding Telling Time (though note, putting a card into your hand is different from drawing), a land or two since you want to hit 4 mana pretty regularly, and maaaaaaybe Noxious Revival if you want to reuse your miracles. Riverwise Augur is a possible option though it seems pretty slow.
