The new wording where you have to cast the copy effect first tend me more mana efficient. Twincast and Reverberate are both double of the same color. Teach by Example is blue or red mana.

In the past, cards that copied instants or sorceries would read "copy target instant or sorcery spell" (i.e., Twincast or Reverberate), but, recently, WotC has been printing cards that instead read "when you cast your next instant or sorcery spell this turn, copy that spell" (i.e., Teach by Example, Repeated Reverberation, or the new galvanic iteration), which may not seem to be a major difference, but it is, because, with the first method, a player could cast a spell and then cast the copier, but, with the second method, a player must first cast the copier and then cast the spell to be copied, and I do not like that, as it seems to be a pointless change.

What does everyone else say about this? Why is WotC changing how copying spells works?

if I copy a spell like Goblin Grenade and copy it with Teach by Example , will I have to pay the sacrifice one goblin again or not because I have already cast it?

Lutri doesn't really affect anything if he is already on the battlefield. He must enter the battlefield to trigger his ETB.

Show of Confidence and Mentor's Guidance make copies of themselves, but these copies are not cast. They are not one card combos by themselves. The only thing Lutri can do is make 1 additional copy.

Doublecast and Teach by Example copy the next card cast. Casting one and then the other will copy the second one cast (the copies still are not cast) Making the NEXT instant/sorcery get copied twice. Lutri can copy either of the spells, allowing for the next instant/sorcery cast after the two copy spells to be copied a total of three times.

If you cast Release to the Wind targeting a different creature and then cast Lutri you will be able to infinitely exile and then cast Lutri. You will need a third piece to generate advantage from this interaction.

Are these combos true with Lutri on the field?

Show of Confidence is a one card infinite combo.

Doublecast and Teach by Example used on each other with another card with Lutri is an infinite combo.

Release to the Wind is a one card infinite combo.

Mentor's Guidance is a one card infinite combo.

if I were to use Teach by Example on a card like Invoke the Firemind would i have to copy the exact same option or could i use the draw card option on the first time i play the spell and then the x damage for the copy of the spell?

Teach by Example doesn’t do anything unless you have another spell to go with it then you need at least 3 mana, and you get to copy a Shock or a cantrip. Not really worth it.

And the deck rarely has mana open for a 3 mana counter. You want all your main deck spells to be able to be cast to trigger prowess or Stormwing Entity . That’s one of the reasons I cut Light Up the Stage the first time because you want to attack first before you play it.

Thank you for the suggestions and upvote though!
