Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

Aight baby gurl, bedtime. May your infectious love for infect cause infectious hate upon you. Love, Jake Stremers

Neotrup on Do abilities on cards activate …

In sergiodelrio's example, you'll use "last known information" to determine what Aether Vial looked like when it was destroyed. Since Aether Vial is no longer on the battlefield, it doesn't have 2 counters anymore, but you look to when it last existed on the battlefield to determine how many counters it had at that point. This could be useful if your opponent casts Steady Progress in response to your activation, you could Shatter your own Aether Vial in response so that the game remembers it having 2 counters instead of 3.

In answer to your follow up question, yes, both the creature and the target of Argentum Armor will be destroyed. The targeted permanent is also still destroyed if the Shatter the Argentum Armor .

Spirits on Mizzix of the Izmagnus

5 months ago

I did quite a bit of playtesting, was very happy with Flux Channeler, I'm really thinking hard on adding into my deck. With Mizzix of the Izmagnus in play, a Gamble for a Reiterate (or Electrodominance) get you 2 Experience and then I cast Electrodominance for (+ 2 Experience) gets you to 4 Experience then Reiterate for (+4 Experience). Initiating off a Desperate Ritual or something same result. So a win-con (assuming you have already Drawn/Muddle the Mixture/Spellseeker/Mystical Tutor the Electrodominance).

The lands were a little bit lean, but I think it's because your still 15 cards over, so skewing the testing a little bit.

I did have a hand with Fork, Reiterate, Increasing Vengeance, which was uncomfortable, but infrequently it happened.

You could cut Dualcaster Mage / Twinflame / Imperial Recruiter / Vedalken AEthermage since you have Bonus Round combos as a secondary win-con. (Primary being Reiterate + Electrodominance or Turnabout/Finisher).

Also have Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter too. Could add a Runic Repetition combo line too since you already have Mystic Retrieval so only 1 card). I like enjoy the Dualcaster Mage line though because it's only with 1 Experience and a Mizzix of the Izmagnus to copy.

Depending on which cards you have, if your looking to cut money Reset isnt' totally necessary since your have Reality Spasm

Curse of the Swine easy cut. Mind's Desire easy cut.

After I got my Intuition from boxing day sale I put Enter the Infinite in my deck, I personally didn't like it, so I took it back out lol, but I get why it's in there! Instead I'm using these tutor win-lines with Intuition: Firemind's Foresight + Past in Flames + Mizzix's Mastery or Turnabout + Past in Flames + Mystical TutorReiterate. I almost feel like Enter the Infinite need a Show and Tell/Omniscience lol, but can't tutor that Omniscience (similar to the Aetherflux Reservoir)

Fork pretty expensive compared to the other copies, could cut that if you don't have one for budget, and too many copy spells, BUT... a Ral, Storm Conduit + any two copy spells is a win, I respect that line too!

Trim 1 of the protection boots (not Lightning Greaves) maybe, you wouldn't want to accidently ever draw 2 and like devastating if you draw all 3. Hexproof > Shroud but Attach > Equip, situational call, would use both in the appropriate situation, like in response to removal Attach is key, especially if you can stack multiple attaches like Equip, opponent responds with removal, in response Attach as a game example.

Gilded Lotus or Steady Progress one might argue are too slow, but they didn't play bad in testing, the CMC3 on Steady Progress was annoying though.

Your pretty close, couple more cuts and your there. Im still testing T6-8, I had a T4 win with your deck playtesting. I had thought of a T1 and was going to add to my primer when I got to a PC, then I forgot it lol, have to think what it was, I know we have T1 potential.

Nice deck! Any particular reason to choose Convolute over Mana Leak? The speed gained from the reduced CMC is especially valuable in Modern. I do see that your SB has some faster options but even still I'd probably remove ~2 cards of those from the SB and all copies of Convolute, then MB Mana Leak. That leaves some options open for some matchups (like Graveyard hate, tron removal etc).

Possibly look into counters that also give draw such as Keep Safe or are more versatile such as Izzet Charm, Archmage's Charm or Cryptic Command ($$$). This will help keep the gas coming.

Steady Progress might be okay since you're running Sprite Dragon but probably not worth it.

When I saw this deck I was pretty intrigued, especially since I love big blue creatures ( Stormtide Leviathan was my first rare from 2013 core set back when I joined). I was inspired to quickly come up with my own version: Ula's Temple. One recommendation I have is Dizzy Spell ; it acts as an additional copy of quest for ula's temple, plus it can also find clockspinning and shrink a creature in a pinch. I tried to use creatures like Judge's Familiar as disruption instead of instants to help my chances with Ula's temple; plus, without the need to leave mana open, it makes more sense to run Contentious Plan instead of Steady Progress . Grozoth will let you tutor for multiple inkwell leviathans, which would be pretty devastating. Also, Street Wraith would up your creature count and thin out your deck.

My environment will mostly consist of tons of various aggro/tempo Tribal decks like Elves/Treefolk/Ninjas/Spirits/Faeries and Naya Small Zoo and Bant Blink/Wish Control centered around Venser, the Sojourner / Glittering Wish hence why I was pretty focused on Torpor Orb but I think graveyard hate/permanent removal should be able to stop Time Warp / Eternal Witness shenanigans.)... other things pop up here and there but those are the most common decks I'll be facing.

I was hoping proliferate would help me "speed up" kiora but I agree 9/10 I found myself wishing Steady Progress was just a Fog ... Currently I'm trying out Gigadrowse and so far it seems to be pretty effective; make me wanna also try Sleep / Downpour .

A full playset of Kiora seems pretty necessary to me so far in playtesting... im able to easily stall out a game to T12 but even then i've had plenty of cases of not drawing a single kiora just run out of Fogs by the time I do get one....otherwise at least a means to Tutor her... Thats why i was experimenting with Silent Arbiter but he is just too high CMC/hard to protect... Tamiyo, the Moon Sage might be really good in here as being a possible "target fog" or maybe even a one-sided mass draw... I have 2x copies of her so its a possibility; but might cost too much CMC?

definitely agree that Kiora, the Crashing Wave is a bit of a challenge to reach as a wincon but I really wanna feel rewarded when I get wins...she's a pet card of mine/my fiance and a steady stream of 9/9 Krakens is just too funny. (basically because of opponents using shock lands I just need to get 2 that can attack and then Whelming Wave / Gigadrowse G.G.)
