Hey! Going by tcgmarket prices this is what I have:

My 1x Scalding Tarn ZEN $102.60

total= $102.60

and your

2x Thoughtseize THS $12.67

1x Verdant Catacombs ZEN $67.78

1x Inquisition of Kozilek MM3 $4.74

Total: $97.86.

Is there anyway you could make up the rest of that $5 or so? Perhaps another IOK?

Jayph on Improvement for challenger deck

1 week ago

I have never played with a blue deck, I always gravitate towards green, black, and red. I have decided to head out and grab a Arcane Tempo challenger deck as I like the idea behind the build. I just play casual, kitchen table style magic so looking for suggestions on a few swap outs to make it better since I don't have to follow standard rules.

I am thinking I am going to swap the 4 Shock for 4 Lightning Bolt and the 4 Opt for 4 Brainstorm add 1 Sulfur Falls and 4 Steam Vents that will replace the 4 Izzet Guildgate I'll add 2 Scalding Tarn and remove 3 of the basic lands. Now these are all changes I can make with cards on hand so what are some other possible changes you recommend?

regarding the manabase, you just gotta make whatever you can with what you've got. if i could afford to just drop $100 on Scalding Tarn it would obviously be a great addition, same for Volcanic Island or any number of other lands. so far i haven't had any issues with it the way it is, but i'm not making a 100% competitive list or anything here so it is what it is.

as for Shivan Reef specifically, i did have it at one point, but since i'm in a 50%+ black deck i cut it in favor of shifting to more UB and RB lands since that's the color i need most.

I agree, i'm not a fan of the steal everything type of lists people often make with marchesa, but Thief of Sanity has been pretty good so far and Cytoplast Manipulator does a lot of work because you can either steal someone else's creature or graft counters to your own guys. not to mention +1/+1 counters are pretty common in EDH so you might not even have to use graft for other people's creatures. food for thought i guess.

Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip forces them to discard their removal so what can thy do about it. muahaha!

re: Opal Palace etc.. with a deck that is as highly commander focused as this it's pretty important to ensure that she stays on the board. often it's better to play something on T4 that can attack / be sacrificed as soon as she comes out on T5 (with safety) rather than her on t4, and hoping to have had something good on T3. I think Hall of the Bandit Lord fills the same role, but i haven't played with one ever so i couldn't say how well it works.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Massacre Wurm are definitely cards that i don't think i would miss and wouldn't prioritize them.

I've been watching WAR spoilers, so far nothing has definitively struck me as being a sure thing here, but we'll see how it goes.

Skullblade248: also, over half of the cost is in Scalding Tarn and Snapcaster Mage alone.

You don't by chance a a Flusterstorm or Mana Crypt for trade do you? Will include a Scalding Tarn towards a crypt. Just wondering, as I am close to finishing my deck. Another trade for Flusterstorm fell through, so need one of those now also.
