Saw It Coming Discussion

Nice! I'd recommend some counterspells like Saw It Coming for the deck, mainly to help protect Jadzi. It kinda disrupts you when you're comboing off, but it'll really help you get to that point.

I see you have a strong combo with Nissa of Shadowed Boughs with her minus to setup a free Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider to the board that you can follow up with Professor Onyx . That seems interesting, but you look like your lacking ways to protect her if you resolve her. You may want to include some sweepers into your deck like Extinction Event or Shadows' Verdict to clean up the board for when you want to resolve your Nissa or for general survival as a lot of decks are finding ways to hit the board wide quickly.

For your land base, I would probably suggest removing the Evolving Wilds and just go with basic lands or more of the Triome lands. The reason for this suggestion is that you are running Cultivate , Fabled Passage , and Binding the Old Gods . With soo many cards to take lands from your deck, this may lead to you very quickly turning your Cultivate and Evolving Wilds / Fabled Passage into dead draws from taking your few basics from deck too quickly.

Cosima, God of the Voyage  Flip is a tricky card and I know you are using the Evolving Wilds to help trigger this card more likely then the Nissa. If that is the case then you would need more basics in the deck as previously stated (meaning you would need to trim pathways to keep the wilds).

You may want to consider running one Saw It Coming in the main board to make your opponent guess what you really have foretold since you are running the draw, kill, and extra turn spell already. Players will hesitate to play cards when they see certain spells once they know what kind of cards you foretell.

I think these small adjustments should boost your consistency a bit for your gameplay. Wish you the best of luck with the deck.

Hello,

It's refreshing to see new players coming up with their own deck ideas instead of just copying the top meta decks. Welcome to the game btw!

I haven't seen many people play dedicated "fractal" decks so far, but something that I've seen people make work was using Body of Research to make a huge body and then win with Fling or Kazuul's Fury  Flip. It seems pretty close to the way you try to play the deck anyway seeing how you like to have Solve the Equation in your opening hands. A combo deck like that wouldn't really need as many tribal interaction and focus mostly on getting the right cards out asap while just staying alive, so cards that give better card selections Omen of the Sea , bounce spells Into the Roil and counterspells Saw It Coming could be more helpful.

If you prefer to play the tribal aspect where you try to win with creatures and superior board state, you shouldn't really need to rush to a specific card like you do when using Solve the Equation . Instead you should try to get the most out of you creatures. The Great Henge seems like a great fit in this case since you will have large bodies for the discount, and your creatures will get more +1/+1 counters for your existing synergies. I'm not sure what Confounding Conundrum is there for, it's usually a side-board card, or a card built around things like Field of Ruin to trigger it or in Yorion, Sky Nomad to bounce it, but another 2 drop you could consider would be Guardian Gladewalker since it gives a +1/+1 counter and it also counts as a fractal for Biomathematician .

I find that The Ozolith is a very nice fit for the deck, but drawing multiple is hardly ever going to help you, so you could easily cut 1 and only play 3. Also, going up to 23(or more) lands certainly wouldn't hurt. You could make it a Mountain if you want to go the combo route to supplement your Ketria Triome for the red splash so that any Fabled Passage can be a red source.

Btw, you seem to think that The Ozolith would cover you if Body of Research gets "countered", but if that happens the creature won't ever exist, so there will be no counters for The Ozolith to pick-up. If it resolves and then the creature gets destroy or remove from play by any means, then yes it would work.

Hopefully these suggestions are useful,

Good luck!

Pretty plain Esper Control list. Most of your cards are pretty low in power though.

Unsubstantiate is pretty weak counterspell/bounce. Saw It Coming is better 9/10 times.

Solve the Equation , The Birth of Meletis , Professor Onyx , Archmage Emeritus , even ECD (depending on the matchup) are all pretty slow. Esper lists in Standard right now have a lot of value packed into them. Most of them use Yorion, Sky Nomad as a companion and love to blink things like Omen of the Sea , Treacherous Blessing , ECD, and Sad Robot . Skyclave Apparition is usually pretty good too, as it removes things much earlier than other exile effects.

Speaking of removal, let's work on that. Murderous Rider is not a good rate anymore. Bloodchief's Thirst , Heartless Act , or Eliminate are the removal of choice usually, and Shadows' Verdict the sweeper.

I'd even probably take out the 4x Neutralize for some combination of Disdainful Stroke , Essence Scatter , and Negate .

With Strixhaven coming, I expect Elite Spellbinder to be a good addition to control. It blocks well and disrupts your opponent's curve.

In the sideboard, with the prevalence of control, 4x Mystical Dispute is a necessity. You'll also want something for the mono-red aggro matchup, probably more Shadows' Verdict s. Against mono-white aggro, you want Shadow's Verdicts and maybe some Ravenform . Shark Typhoon is also good in the control matchup (hint: you'll almost never cast it, but cycling can't be countered and gives you a card back). Disdainful Stroke should also add up to 4x between mainboard and sideboard, as the control deck of choice at the moment loves to run big spells. Unfortunately, this deck will fold to Dimir Rogues and I can't think of a sideboard plan that would change that. Their fish tactics are just too good against dedicated control decks.

ChrisHansonBiomancin on Song of Dragons

Nice ok, I like Draconic Intervention a lot here, from playtesting mine it kind of feels like it wants a wipe but also plays a decent number of creatures, so if you can figure out a way to just wipe your opponent's board that seems pretty solid. However you'll need some expensive spells to make that work. Maybe you could try something like Boon of the Wish-Giver which has a cheap cycling and high CMC, and/or you could go with the treasure token cards from strixhaven like Magma Opus or Creative Outburst .

I actually like Terror of the Peaks a lot too since you will have plenty of mana to throw him down and follow up with another spell or two, and if he lasts even a turn with Song out providing a chain of creatures it's probably gg.

Some of the protection spells here seem a little awkward for a Song deck since you have to discard your hand and don't get much more than a trigger out of playing them proactively. Saw It Coming is probably the best route since you can store it out of your hand. Also not really seeing any Yorion interactions here.

Sorin_Markov_1947 on Izzet giants v1

1 month ago

Cinderheart Giant is not really a good card. It's too expensive for its effect, even if it does die. Toralf, God of Fury  Flip doesn't do too much either. I'd advise you to look at other giants lists to see what giants are good. Aegar, the Freezing Flame , Invasion of the Giants , the full playset of Calamity Bearer s, are all pretty much must-haves.

Embercleave isn't really what you want. You're going tall, not wide, and EC does its best work when you go wide.

For the control package, Saw It Coming >> any counterspell you have atm. You'll also want sweepers for go-wide decks like mono-red, so Storm's Wrath should be here, or at least Shatterskull Smashing  Flip. Probably both. Actually, Battle of Frost and Fire is better than Storm's Wrath, since you're in giants and it has additional upside after the sweep.

Shimmerdrift Vale isn't worth having. Basics would be better.

reads decklist thinks of suggestions "Intelligent comments, please" shoot

For most decks, Cultivate is the best ramp spell available in Standard. For a landfall deck, Roiling Regrowth and Migration Path are better because they allow you to get two lands onto the battlefield in one turn.

Fabled Passage is strictly better than Evolving Wilds , by a lot, if you have the wildcards for it.

Sarulf, Realm Eater seems like a good card for a kind of midrange deck like this, but it's secretly really slow. The earliest you're likely to activate it is turn 5, and without other creatures to draw removal spells from your opponent, Sarulf is likely to eat one. The T5 activation is likely to only exile a few small creatures, as he'll only have 1-2 counters on him. At that point, it's just better to play Extinction Event or Blood on the Snow .

Miscast seems an odd one-of to me. It's very situational, but you haven't even given yourself many chances to find that situation to use it. I'd recommend Saw It Coming instead if you really need counterspells. It works well with Roiling Regrowth since you can hold up countermagic in case they do something threatening, then use Regrowth or Behold the Multiverse if they don't.

Your sideboard is a little all over the place. I'm not the best with sideboards, but think about each individual card and what matchups you're going to bring it in for. Wilt or Return to Nature are also better than Broken Wings 4/5 times.

Crow-Umbra on To Drown the World in Death: Araumi EDH [PRIMER]

1 month ago

Daedalus19876 I also pulled a Burning-Rune Demon , but sadly it isn't full art or foil. I've kept it in my stash of maybe cards for Araumi. Anything you'd consider cutting to make room for it? Only Kaldheim cards I've slotted into Araumi so far are Saw It Coming and Mystic Reflection . I've been on the fence for Rise of the Dread Marn (have it in my Brokkos build), and Ravenform . My meta is more creature heavy, so Dread Marn could help me set up defensively post boardwipe.
