Sylvan Scrying Discussion

Deck looks fun. Though, it doesn't looks like you have enough support for the yawgmoth/coffers combo, you only have demonic tutor. I would recommend Sylvan Scrying, Nylea's Intervention, or any number of other land tutors if you keep it.

And I would also recommend Generous Gift over Chaos Warp because a 3/3 shouldn't mean anything to you but I have seen chaos warp go very, very bad.

It may be an unpopular opinion, since Fist of Suns looks like the Infinity Gauntlet and was in the precon, but in my testing I've found both Fist of Suns and Jodah, Archmage Eternal are really terrible in this style deck.

Let me explain - Due to Emminence, Every 7 CMC creature in the deck is already discounted by one, meaning they are now 6 CMC. You, like myself, only run 1 creature that is more than 7 CMC. This makes Fist of Suns and Jodah function as extremely expensive and mana intensive versions of Dragonlord's Servant, which I would argue is already the worst of the ramp cards you have access to.

Sure these two cards do work with the commander - but the fact that you only run 1 other dragon above 7 CMC means these two cards do not synergize with 98% of your deck. They're both super cool, but I just don't think they have a place here.

I'd swap out for Nature's Lore and Arcane Signet. Maybe find room for a Fellwar Stone somehow too. Any one of these three looks like a strict upgrade to Sylvan Scrying.

Also, have you seen the new Garruk's Uprising that was spoiled for M21? I think it's a really good upgrade to Elemental Bond

I like your inclusion of Time of Need. Going to have to hunt one of those down for myself.

SynergyBuild thanks for your help! Do you have any thoughts on Wishclaw Talisman in comparison to Sylvan Scrying? I only ask because I’ve found the Talisman to be helpful in testing because you can Twiddle it and use it more than once to tutor other pieces. Or maybe the Temur version helps through more cantrips. Idk. Thoughts?

"How do you feel about Sylvan Scrying VS Nature's Lore as low cost ramp."

Lore is the better option because it doesn't take the 1 Land being played during your main phase, while Scrying does. The ability to tutor for literally any land is powerful, and can definitely be helpful in a pinch - but I wouldn't consider Sylvan Scrying ramp, more so mana fixing/utility.

How do you feel about Sylvan Scrying VS Nature's Lore as low cost ramp. I like how Sylvan Scrying could get me a Cavern of Souls or in your case a cradle. But I feel like Nature's Lore putting a forest into play is simply just more efficient ramp.

I think the biggest challenge you are facing is the mana base, as pretty much all of your lands enter the battlefield tapped. Even if the teck is build to have fun in casual games by playing big fancy spells, you will end up being always a turn behind the rest of the table. Sure, there is some ramp with Grow from the Ashes, Sylvan Scrying and Migration Path, but I am not sure it is enough to make up for all the ETBT lands.

Good lands are expensive though, so if you want to keep the budget in check I would suggest to try to get a couple of "painlands" (e.g. Yavimaya Coast, Karplusan Forest), which are versatile and not as expensive as for instance the shocklands, also I would consider playing more basic lands. If you have more basic lands in the deck, maybe also a couple of "checklands" (e.g. Sunpetal Grove) could become viable.

Taking out a couple of creatures to get some cheap rocks producing coloured mana (e.g. Simic Signet, Golgari Signet, Talisman of Curiosity, etc.) I believe could be helpful to cast your big powerful guys not too late in the game.

Hear that _NotJohn_, in fact I had it in here previously as it's one of my fave ramp cards in green. Once I decided to slot in Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , I made some land tutor accommodations to assist, hence the inclusion of Expedition Map, Pir's Whim & Sylvan Scrying. I agree that it's not technically a ramp card, but it plays into my big mana strategy and it made the most sense to categorize it under ramp. My flawed logic explained!

I think Sylvan Scrying isn't a ramp card, but a mana fixing card. Instead, run Nature's Lore or some other ramp card.
