i would need to see a ruling before i am convinced it can be casted as a spell from command zone

from what i know these cards types are determined by the front of the card
if its a creature on front and a spell in the back it is considered a creature while its in the library / grave yard / command zone
so you cant Mystical Tutor it from your libary or Snapcaster Mage from the graveyard
last ruling i read was when you cast it from hand you may choose to cast it as the back side instead
i don't know how that applies to the command zone

Caerwyn723.1 can you help out with this ?

and if we can cast spells from command zone why cant we have Lutri, the Spellchaser unbanned in edh then ?

I would consider Snapcaster Mage , over Twincast or Mission Briefing . Making a 2/1 bocker can give you a extra turn, to mill them out or stabilize. I don't think Devastation Tide is great, but I am unsure what to run over it.

I have been thinking about making an spell based Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait too once I realized that Aesi lets you draw the card you put on top with Mystic Sanctuary . Speaking of Mystic Sanctuary , I feel like there is there is a lot of broken things we can do with it, which is quite nice as there are almost a million way to tutor for islands in the game ( like the expensive fetches , the cheap fetches , the panoramas , Farseek , or even islandcycling ). First off Ghostly Flicker + Mystic Sanctuary is draw a card at instant speed for U whenever the heck you want. Add in Vesuva and you make Snapcaster Mage look like a bad card, or you can just add in High Tide to generate infinite Mana and draw your entire deck. Further Deprive and some of the moonfolk also work quite well with Mystic Sanctuary , or really any repeatable effect that returns lands to our hands.

I really like this deck and might be why I built my own blue moon brew lol. (I've seen and upvoted before)

Do you have any thoughts or preference for Behold the Multiverse ? I have seen Hieroglyphic Illumination in this slot before for other brews but I think I personally like Fact or Fiction ... especially with Snapcaster Mage there is a ton of room for value.

On another note you might like Silence (cast it in response to them drawing a card during their draw step) and if you wanna ignore budget Snapcaster Mage to go with it and your other low cost instant removal. Def just build it the way you like it. The important part is having fun.

Hmm you make good points. My main plan wasn’t to put Rift on Scepter but it might come up. Either way I’ve just included both in the deck.

You think I should just run a Snapcaster Mage over the Scepter? I have an extra I’m not using. Scepter is just so fun. Lol

Alright I think I’ll go with Pongify .

Do you think I should throw in a Snapcaster Mage ? I have 2 of them leftover from my Modern deck and I got one in my Adeliz deck.
