enpc on Damia Mill (Battlecruiser/Dreamcrusher)

I'm kind of confused what you're trying to do with the deck. I get that you've used used Dominus - Dreamcrusher Edition as a basis for the deck, however there are a lot of cards that don't really make sense here. For example, you've added Dark Confidant and Ad Nauseam but then have filled ther deck with really high cost cards like Recycle, Null Profusion and Expropriate. You also have Jace, Wielder of Mysteries despite not running Tainted Pact or Demonic Consultation.

Additionally, draw spells like Null Profusion and Recycle don't make sense in a battlecruiser style deck. Cards like that are designed to work with cantrip heavy storm combo decks.

Also, Null Brooch is a really bad counterspell. Discarding your entire hand to counter a spell every time is not a good move, especially when you have lots of very mana intensive cards (i.e. it's slow to play them all). Brooch is much better in decks that constantly want to have little to no cards in hand. I understand that Damia can refill your hand, but it seems like a bad trade-off. Forbid or even Spell Burst would give similar functionality with more control (though all three aren't great).

ya your probably right

but last Saturday i was playing my Timmy temur deck
T1:i played a forest into Magus of the Candelabra
T2: i floated the green played Simic Growth Chamber
bounced the forest used candelabra to untap chamber
then casted Broken Bond on my buddies signet
put the forest back and then casted Sol Ring
T3: i played a mountain and then casted Skyline Despot
T4: i played Alchemist's Refuge and casted Seedborn Muse
leaving the rest of my mana open for Spell Burst & Voidslime

after this topic today i really can't help but to think
how cool it would have been to have Lighthouse Chronologist in my hand on Turn 4 in that game
idk i might even add it to the deck ive been needing more mana dumps anyways
Thanks Sultai_Sir

"To add on to this, a recursive counterspell has never been printed, simply because it would be too annoying."

Mono-U Tron and Spell Burst would like to have a word with you.

multimedia making it hard to give suggestions again lol. So, I've brewed this guy up before as sort of a troll on one of the guys that plays at my lgs - Seedborn Muse and Wilderness Reclamation are absolute must have. Quest for Renewal fills a similar roll I'd actually increase the amount of dorks your playing. Priest of Titania, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, and Fyndhorn Elves will all help you get out your commander stupid early. Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are basically elves in enchantment form. Sol Ring, Arcane Signet and Fellwar Stone put in work too. As far as your control package Rapid Hybridization, Pongify, Reality Shift and Beast Within give you some removal incase something slips through your counter magic. If you get a Seedborn Muse engine going Spell Burst or Capsize can give you a soft lock on the game.

Hoobynobber7395 on Zaxara got a phat X

I am running Zaxara, Nightmare Hydra currently as my mane focus deck.

depending on budget some cards to look into would be:

Bloom Tender and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for better mana and infinite combo

Walking Ballista alone can win a game in this deck with infinite damage

Spell Burst is my favorite x cost counter

Animist's Awakening, Astral Cornucopia, and Boseiju, Who Shelters All are amazing mana includes for this deck

Doubling Season and Doubling Cube are great for doubling tokens and counters for hydras as well as doubling your mana base

Helix Pinnacle and Mind Grind are both great wincons for the deck interesting ones at that

The Ozolith is a way to protect your counters

and Wildest Dreams helps you get things back that get answered

if you want any help please feel free to tag me and ask! these are only suggestions, every player builds and plays their decks differently

i mean Spell Burst stops everyone from doing anything consistently, its a better combo piece than Syncopate though I think you should have both because a counter is a counter
