Teferi, Time Raveler

Legendary Planeswalker — Teferi

Rhadamanthus on Creative Technique and Time Restrictions

1 month ago

They get cast immediately. If a resolving spell or ability says you can cast something and doesn't specify a window of time ("this turn", "until your next turn" etc.), it means you cast it right now as part of the resolution. The spell doesn't resolve immediately, but you put it on the stack and make all the necessary choices etc. and then after the previous spell/ability is totally finished resolving everyone will get a chance to make responses before that new spell starts to resolve.

The normal reason you're only able to cast certain types of spells at certain times is because the base rules of the game only give you permission to cast them at those times. It's possible to get additional permissions from other effects like the Flash ability, cards like Vedalken Orrery, or cards like Creative Technique. However, if you're given an actual specific restriction then there's no way to get around that. Teferi, Time Raveler will stop Creative Technique cold, because it's trying to get you to cast a spell at a time you wouldn't normally be allowed to cast a Sorcery (during the resolution of another spell).

Currently Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and Teferi, Time Raveler seem to be the planswalkers of choice for control in most cases... I'm honestly not sure if this one will be a viable replacement or split... from the hip he looks absolutely horrifying though... I tend to play janky control decks so he looks powerful to me; but idk if this one will find a home in an actual Modern meta or not.

A word of advise against Isochron Scepter, is that there are a LOT of mainboard cards that can deal with it - Prismatic Ending, March of Otherworldly Light, Boseiju, Who Endures, Teferi, Time Raveler… and then there’ll be even more hate pieces post-sideboard. Hate against Scepter is particularly miserable because it’s basically a free 2-for-1 for the opponent, which will set you faaar more behind than if they’d targeted anything else

Okay. So, I think you should really lean into the control/combo shell. This deck could use combos like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, with some added redundancy in the forms of Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Marauding Blight-Priest, or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion to close out the game. In order to accomplish this, I think you should cut a ton of the creatures and really lean into board wipes, control spells, and resource denial.

Things like:

Arterial Flow

The Meathook Massacre

Dovin's Veto

Spell Pierce


Ghostly Prison


Revenge of Ravens


Wrath of God

Supreme Verdict

Time Wipe


Mana Drain

Rhystic Study

Smothering Tithe

Sheoldred, the Apocalypse

Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Vampiric Tutor

Demonic Tutor

Search for Glory

Idyllic Tutor

Enlightened Tutor

Mystical Tutor

Cyclonic Rift

Murderous Rider

Feed the Swarm

Infernal Grasp

Fierce Guardianship

Fateful Absence

Underworld Dreams

Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted


Solve the Equation

Baleful Strix

Drown in the Loch

Mana Leak

Narset, Parter of Veils

You could also do cute stuff like Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity, giving yourself time to wipe the board again or go for the win with Peer into the Abyss. You should also consider taking a look at your mana base.

I'd suggest going for some fetches, checks, and shocks like:

Flooded Strand

Polluted Delta

Marsh Flats

Hallowed Fountain

Glacial Fortress

Watery Grave

Drowned Catacomb

Godless Shrine

Isolated Chapel

Deserted Beach

Shattered Sanctum

Shipwreck Marsh

Command Tower

You also have way too many plains right now. Even before you get the lands I just named, you should cut 6 Plains for 4 Swamp and 2 Island.

I know I've given you a lot of suggestions. I think if you tried putting a list together with all the cards I named, plus some of the bangers from your current list and you'd have a badass deck! Don't worry about trying to do all that right now, though. See which look most appealing/are in your price range and add those first. A lot of these should be long term goals!

Don't tell Rett I gave you so many suggestions XD


hiiii on I'll Just Play During Your Turn

Hey! I'm trying to look into interesting 1CMC counterspells you could replace Remand with. Mana Tithe, Spell Pierce, Miscast, Swan Song or An Offer You Can't Refuse could be interesting, tho they all have different drawbacks. If you want to stick to 2CMC, I'd say Dovin's Veto and Counterspell are always good options. The former is noncreatures only, but it is uncounterable, and the latter of course costs so it's harder to cast on multicolor.

As for other cards, perhaps Lair of the Hydra could interest you. It's very similar to Celestial Colonnade, except you can make it bigger if you've got the means to do so. Sadly it's only, but it can enter untapped if played early. Upsides and downsides.

Apart from that, I don't see anything I'd personally change in your deck, it seems really solid!

If you want to add insult to injury you could always play Teferi, Time Raveler. If you're looking for creatures that are harder to get rid of, you could always get Gideon Blackblade. You could also run The Wandering Emperor for flavor points.

Hope this helped! It's awesome to see an older deck still being worked on 6 years later :D

I had a deck very very similar to this one, I've recently picked it back up in an attempt to find a way to make it work in the current modern meta.

I believe I've found at least a reasonable approach although it is quite vulnerable to a few relevant cards. Teferi, Time Raveler, Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon and to a lesser degree Chalice of the Void.


The deck attempts to avoid having creatures and instead relies entirely on the fact that most decks depend on creature damage to win the game. Rather than trying to give them creatures just to remove them, instead the game plan is to give them creatures and let them keep them. Playing spells that give your opponents creatures then becomes a huge element to the game. You focus on drawing cards, letting them play creatures while you play artifacts and enchantments. The end result is a surprisingly powerful deck when played against incredibly expensive and tier 1 meta decks.

The deck doesnt care how much value your cards get, it just keeps giving the opponent cards anyways. High value doesnt matter, the deck wins on the cheapness of spells and the effectiveness of Rakdos Charm's third effect. Quite a fun way to play this style of deck.

I've just always found the blood artist plan too easy to stop. They can easily just ping the blood artist, or board clear, or simply overrun everything with better, more effective creatures.

Delphen7 its worth mentioning Persist needs a non-legendary target, so about half of your reanimation suggestions aren’t really practical.

I think from my own time playing reanimator Leyline of Sanctity is fine. Discard can really hurt as it’ll generally strip away any options the deck has to actually reanimate stuff. But it is definately a meta call.

The thing I really like about Magic_Aids list here is him not using Teferi, Time Raveler. I’ve been using that card in my list for a long time, but oftentimes it feels clunky. Its nice to see a list doing alright without it.

The Solitudes, the Lavinia, Azorius Renegades and the Teferi, Time Raveler are in the sidebar to help reduce the frustration from Archmage's Charm and/or 1 shot kills from Wrenn and Six.

Valakut / Amulet Titan seems to tear me apart no matter what I do.
