Test of Talents


Counter target instant or sorcery spell. Search its controller's graveyard, hand and library for any number of cards with the same name as that spell and exile them. That player shuffles, then draws a card for each card exiled from their hand this way.

Hey nbarry223! Thanks for checking out the deck! Brokers Hideout is very appealing. I like your call of 1-2 copies as well. There will definitely be situations where I don't want it, but also situations where the immediate second trigger will make the difference.

I'll mull over Elvish Reclaimer. I'm not sold on it over Scute Swarm immediately, but I can see its value so I'll test it out a bit. Test of Talents seems like a good option for stopping combo, like you said. I'll play around with that one a bit too.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Test of Talents would destroy a competitive burn deck pretty fast!

It just depends on matchup unless you know the meta at your locals or know all of your matchups then just bring one or the other. Test of Talents do stop combos like everyone said here.

Never even knew that card existed (never seen it played lol). I definitely think I'd pay the extra mana for the broader Test of Talents though. That does make me wonder if there's other cards along the same lines that make sense. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll have to do some research.

You ever looked at Invasive Surgery? Seems right up your alley, along with Test of Talents and The Stone Brain

Also I’m going to guess removal and combo decks you can’t interact with are some of your problem matchups. Try something like Test of Talents in the side to completely shut down that problem card.

I throw my hat into the ring in favor of Test of Talents as well. Hallowed Moonlight is more situationally dependent upon what you might face in your specific playgroup—one of those ‘If you need it, you’ll know it’ types of cards.

Yeah I'd definitely opt for Test of Talents then. It will really hurt creativity, where as Hallowed Moonlight is only going to slow them down a little (Test of Talents should buy you more that enough turns to make up for Hallowed Moonlight drawing a card).

Added to that, Test of Talents will probably fare better against most other combo decks, which will help you avoid having to race those matchups.
