Sensei's Divining Top Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions! I could probably cut Grand Abolisher and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV to make room for Mana Drain and Flusterstorm, but I don't have the budget to throw in Sensei's Divining Top as well (just yet). We do actually have a stax player in our playgroup, and having more counters will likely be more helpful than simply taxing him back. I'll go ahead and make the adjustments now!

Sensei's Divining Top is a great card in a deck like this where you are constantly shuffling.

This deck looks dope, great job. May I suggest Sensei's Divining Top or other ways to look at the top cards of your library? Also, See the Unwritten, Bow of Nylea and similar effects seem useful as redundancy for Mayael. Also, Zilortha, Strength Incarnate maybe as another fatty. Also, both Archetype of Endurance and Gargos, Vicious Watcher are useful to protect your creatures. Last, Siege Behemoth, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Thunderfoot Baloth and Terastodon are very useful cards.

Finally, there's Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a little oddball to cheaper Mayael's activated ability.

NV_1980 on Gisela How Much Damage Is Too Much

Interesting deck. Considering that in some ways this deck is Angel-tribe AND the fact that you have put some money into this, we would recommend Cavern of Souls. This will basically allow you to cast Gisela (and your other Angels) with impunity.

We would also really recommend adding Swords to Plowshares (because it's just such great removal) and maybe Chaos Warp as well. Adding Homeward Path will give you a way to retrieve Gisela if she gets stolen.

We would recommend more ramp. The average CMC of your deck's creatures is almost 5, so in most cases it will take a number of turns before you can actually do something to your opponents. We would recommend Arcane Signet, Ruby Medallion, Thran Dynamo and especially Weathered Wayfarer.

In terms of card advantage, Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack are fantastic options (if you can afford them).

Hope this helped.

With kind regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

War Room - Draw

Sensei's Divining Top - Utility

Ugin Ineffable + Top + Experimental Frenzy = Draw your whole deck. Ugin + top are good on their own, frenzy is a wild card. Although I think with Feldon you prioritze activating him than casting cards in hand

Humble Defector - Draw, politics, synergy with homeward path, nice with feldon, cheap to cast and buy

Ignite the Future/Light Up the Stage - Draw, not needed but worth mentioning

3devils so, when it comes to higher priced cards you may not notice an immediate impact but it'll be there.

A lot of players typically don't see the value in fetches. Why are these cards so expensive and why do they hold their value?

A fetch isn't just thinning.

With cards that gather information like Sensei's Divining Top or Brainstorm a player is able to make a decision that could very well put them in a winning position because they're able to manipulate their deck according to the information.

Expensive rocks like Jeweled Lotus and Mana Crypt may seem absurdly expensive. But a turn 1 yisan, urza or selvala will have your opponents picking up their cards. Additionally, they expedite slower combos too.

But at the end of the day just have fun with game. Proxies are a wonderful thing and the barrier to entry for a competitive deck is both getting cheaper and more expensive at the same time.

I actually have Hurkyl's Recall, Rebuild, and Displacement Wave in my maybe cards to try and slot in (Displacement wave is actually a secret tech for this deck lol, because you can cast it for 3-4 and leave all the cards above that casting cost). If you have any thoughts on what i could cut to slot in some of these cards i would greatly appreciate the input. I'm afraid I'm too attached to the cards that I'm running in this list to make effective cuts. The main reason I'm not running them currently is because they interfere with the cost reducing artifacts, Isochron Scepter, and the big artists like Alhammarret's Archive but if i can find the room for them I'll definitely make the room

I greatly appreciate the upvote and you saying it's a stood build, I've been working on it for around a month now, give or take, and I've put some real money into the deck (mostly on Sensei's Divining Top lol)
