Teferi's Time Twist Discussion

Scorch Spitter is a good 1 drop to start some early damage. I would also recommend Unsummon for sideboard or mainboard or Spark Double and Teferi's Time Twist - Being able to Blink or Flicker Omnath could be really useful for doing higher amounts of damage to opponents in long games and give you an opening early on.

I don't really see the point of the +1/+1 subtheme here. I think more flicker effects could be better instead. Think cards like Conjurer's Closet , Deadeye Navigator , Displace , Essence Flux , Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , Teferi's Time Twist , Voidwalk . Heck, even Identity Thief kinda fits this bill. Otherwise, just add more ETB effects. I notice there's no Coiling Oracle in here and I'm pretty shocked. Maybe some more removal would be prudent. Putrefy at the very least, more (3-5 instant speed removal spells) is probably better.

So cards I think are worth cutting are most things that have to do w/ +1/+1 counters. Winding Constrictor Skatewing Spy , Ivy Lane Denizen , Bred for the Hunt , Hardened Scales , potentially Evolution Sage . There's a few other counters cards that could be considered for cuts but have enough synergy with the rest of the deck to be fine. I'd also think about cutting down on the token subtheme as well. I don't see Verdant Force being that helpful. There's not enough cards that trigger on "whenever a creature ETB" in here for tokens to be really worth it, I think. Speaking of cards that trigger "when creature ETB" I don't really like Death Match or Season of Growth (or for that matter Hedonist's Trove ) in here. These cards don't really do enough for you or let your opponents do something bad to you, potentially. Once again, I'd look to put in more ETB effects or I'd look to add in a few instants and sorceries that do things you want to do in any deck (removal, board wipe, card draw, ramp, tutors, etc.)

Overall, this deck looks really fun. I hope to play against it someday.

imSandstorm, thanks for the suggestion! Teferi's Time Twist , could be a potential add for protection, as I’m still tinkering with the build.

I was piloting the deck, yesterday and it was blowing up, quickly! One game, I had the entire pod scoop on turn 3 because I was able to have Omnath, Locus of the Roil in play on turn 2 and by turn 3, I had 9-10 lands in play with a counter heavy Omnath and a Winged Temple of Orazca , ready to go. With that being said, I did become a huge target every game. With spot removal being a huge issue.

So to answer your question, on how I deal with protecting my boardstate, well, I just let it happen and lick my wounds and play the long game. Which the deck does have plenty enough other ways of winning, if plan A is prevented. I just rely on stupid luck and not so much on tutors.

But from what I learned in those games, I did decide that I would be adding, Heroic Intervention and also, potentially adding cards, such as: Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and Spellskite , to add a little more protection to the mix, from all the spot removal threats.

Sweet deck. I haven't uploaded my list but I run a similar list without the counter subtheme. What do you think of Teferi's Time Twist as another blink/protection spell? Since you don't run any countermagic or anything like Heroic Intervention or ways to tutor your hate cards how do you deal with people just flat-out wrecking your boardstate?

Id have to disagree with the Ob Nixilis, the Fallen Between Yarok and the majority of my ramp being Land Search Focus i have had multiple games Ob Pings for 40 Damage just off Lands.

Primal Rage is actually a good idea, i never really thought about my guys having it anyways. i think that will be my first Cut.

Teferi's Time Twist is another Control card. Most games Yarok, the Desecrated is a Giant Bulls eye. It has been on my short list to cut tho as i Might be forcing Vigor Back in as there will be a Firesong and Sunspeaker Deck at my group that is 85% Damage spells.

I'd agree with cutting Primal Rage . I'm also curious about Teferi's Time Twist . Is it in there for a reason other than protecting a permanent? If not, it seems it's ability is provided by Deadeye Navigator already, and is repeatable on a body. Maybe worth a cut, too?

Thanks DrkNinja!! You've touched on a lot of things I've been discussing with a friend of mine. TBH this list isn't accurate currently. I'm going to be dropping the +1/+1 counter focus. I think my win con is going to be blinking Omnath with things like Teferi's Time Twist , Conjurer's Closet etc. while stacked with elementals. What I have listed is what I own, so I'm missing a LOT of synergy just as a result of holes in my collection. Thanks for your elemental suggestions! Those are pretty helpful :)
