Thassa's Oracle

Thassa's Oracle

Creature — Merfolk Wizard

When Thassa's Oracle enters the battlefield, look at the top X cards of your library, where X is your devotion to blue. Put up to one of them on top of your library and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. If X is greater than or equal to the number of cards in your library, you win the game. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to blue.)

Thassa's Oracle Discussion

Azeworai on Illuna, Apex of Blue Shenanigans and Stompy Boys

1 day ago

Ah, Illuna is a commander that has become a favourite of mine, for manipulation of the top leads to quite a bit of value.

I am notably bereft of much experience with the Mutate mechanic, as my list has only had a Parcelbeast, which was thusly removed, but I may offer insights upon the top of the library.

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary is quite the terrifying engine for this deck. It is a Mutate target if it must be, and it combos with the commander directly. It tutors for a big idiot to cheat upon the field, whilst working with the rest of the deck most splendidly.

I have found Thassa's Oracle to be a fine value card, oft sieving through the top four cards of the library, only to find a cataclysmic ten-drop. Moreover, Illuna may Mutate unto it.

Dream Cache is a card I used to run, yet shall admit to ablating. It does the job quite well, but was insufficient in the wake of Brainstorm.

Whiles being rather expensive, Scroll Rack, Mirri's Guile, Sensei's Divining Top, and Sylvan Library are each some of the greatest engines in the entire deck. Bother not with questioning their inclusion. If you get ahold of one, use it.

Cavalier of Gales is an extremely efficient flyer and put a big imbecile atop the library.

Prognostic Sphinx grants a deep scry each turn and Hexproof, thence being a fantastic card upon all fronts.

One of the most condign secondary win conditions in my list is Lurking Predators. 'Tis as powerful as it reads.

Perhaps the best card in my entire deck is Future Sight, with a worsened version being Magus of the Future. These provide a heaven-high amount of card advantage. Everything cast from the top essentially draws a card, additionally providing information of when to cast Illuna.

Courser of Kruphix is just a fantastically efficient creature, attributing defensive value and information.

Long-Term Plans grant an instant-speed tutor for the most devasting card in the entire deck. Try it and love it.

Lastly, Dream Eater has become a favourite of mine, being a splendid combat trick and top-of-the-library aid, whereupon always bringing a sense of dint and defense.

That shall be all from me, sire, but I do hope that you would deign to peer upon my list, being as such:

Idoneity's Deliverance

I have become most pleased with it.

Fare thee well, and might the best of fortune betide.

souck on The gods

I second Sisay, Weatherlight Captain as your commander. It can fetch any god she wants and legendary hatebears at instant speed (she can tutor a Narset, Parter of Veils in response of a Windfall and basically insta win for example).

As wincon, Its really hard to suggest without looking at what direction and power level she is building toward. Thassa's Oracle + Demonic Consultation is an obviously strong option. One more thematic since use gods is God-Eternal Kefnet with infinite turns (you cast extra turn with Kefnet, draw it, put it on top of the library somehow and this is infinite)

If she prefers combat and damage Purphoros, God of the Forge and the other gods probably can deal enough damage by themselves.

Azeworai on Kaza, Roil Chaser! Draw, Turn, and Burn! [PRIMIER]

6 days ago

I have been toiling with my own Kaza list, which is yet to be complete, but I have experienced the power of Mind Over Matter. It is a little pricey, but it maximizes the cost reduction of draw spells such as Braingeyser or Mind Spring.

The random win with Azami is a fantastic byproduct of its inclusion, given a Thassa's Oracle.

Once I finsih my list, I would love the opinion of a more experienced Izzet player than myself. I typically dabble in Naya or Abzan.

Thassa's Intervention might be a better fit over Chemister's Insight. It's instant speed and can counter or dig for the card you need. Other wise Mind Spring is a good x costed draw spell/pet card I like. They might help you get to a win con, or reestablish your hand late game. For focus I think you just need to decide on a win condition. Does it go smash? Does it burn the them to death? Do you deck yourself out and Thassa's Oracle?

Keep in mind I am not as creative as you and tend to build boring mid-range decks.

Thegloomyg on Urza Lord High Combomaster

I love playing this deck!! I would add Thassa's Oracle and maybe a few more invite combos.

fudgeboii on You Just Activated My Trap Card!

1 week ago

Fantastic deck and love the background.

What do you think about Thassa's Oracle as another win-con for your deck given the amount of times you'll be drawing? Especially if you run into a situation where you're unable to bounce one of your draw engines (ie Guardian Project - If there are no 2CMC or less enchantment you could cast to bounce with Cloudstone Curio.

Azdranax on Free Contest: Ring in the …

2 weeks ago

MagicWizard1993 hopefully in answering your question I can encourage other users to respond as well, although I'm not sure it's much of an answer at all. If you happened to look through all three pages of my profile decks, which at this point are limited entirely to commander due to dismantling all of my legacy and modern decks, everything except for the Simic Politics deck (currently under construction looking to abuse infinite ETBs of Mystic Sanctuary with an extra turn spell for infinite turns) and the Arcum Dagsson deck, which has been modifed to an Urza, Lord High Artificer deck (currently shown as Emry but will be updated next week) are completed based on the decklists noted. Page 3 of my deck lists are all sold or dismantled except for Animar, which is still ready to play, so a total of 19 decks at this point, which is a lot to choose from obviously.

As for your question, which is my favorite? Honestly, it depends on the day and the pod I'm playing in, but since the very early days of unlimited and revised in 1993-1994, I've heavily favored in that order, so Sultai always calls to me above all else. Reanimator has always been my favorite playstyle as well, so my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck is probably my first love, but my Urza and Kess decks are both more viable in a cEDH setting. That said, due to my job and family, I rarely get the opportunity to play live games unless I specifically make time, even before COVID hit, so I collect cards and build decks regularly, but intentionally build many of my other decks as glass-cannon variations of competitive to end games quickly without stalling opponents with a lot of interaction. Prior to COVID, I played about once a month at my LGS, trying to get at least 10 games in on each of those occasions - in a 6-8 hour session. I haven't played since April at this point though.

Due to the lack of regular play, I'm admittedly an average pilot of my decks, which is another reason why I limit the number of truly cEDH builds I have, as in those serious pods I need to know exactly what I intend my deck to do against whatever my opponents throw my direction. Kess and Urza make that relatively easy to remember, as those game plans are fairly straightforward and usually end with Thassa's Oracle.

Hopefully this helps provide a little more color, if that's what you were looking for, and to confirm your last comment, the deck will be sleeved in grim reaper themed sleeves, which I hope is more of a portent for the new deck owner's opponents. Best of luck and thanks for your response...happy new year.

Spirits on Mizzix of the Izmagnus

2 weeks ago

Decks coming together, did a play test, had an opening Gamble and Dualcaster Mage but not Twinflame to tutor! I think without a Twinflame and Riptide Laboratory which means Dockside Extortionist I wouldn’t run Dualcaster Mage, Fork would likely give you more utility.

I see you’ve decided to go with Intuition, I finally got one!! Last day of Boxing Day sale and came in stock $137 (Canadian $’s = $100 USD), and Enter the Infinite / Mizzix's Mastery / Past in Flames. What I don’t see if the Faithless Looting (if they give you Enter the Infinite) to Past in Flames and then Intuition for Faithless Looting to discard Enter the Infinite then Mizzix's Mastery. I guess you could Pull from Tomorrow for 0 if you had to with some mana ramp spells!

I got advice on discord about Thassa's Oracle the argument was that once you’ve drawn you deck it’s already a win, don’t need the fish at that point, it’s not like we are fish/consul or fish/pact, there is a blue enchantment (name escapes me) for 0 can exile your whole library that would be an argument, but that card awful prevents 1 damage or something. Anyways, the argument is, why not just Underworld Breach that way Frantic Search + Reiterate is same as Stroke of Genius. And breach is just good.

I can’t remember all the Ral, Storm Conduit interactions I would double check Commander Spellbook, my guess you have the good ones based on the list.

Not a fan of Jaya's Immolating Inferno Mizz doesn’t have the supporting creatures, could be dead in hand for long stretches and early game.

With no High Tide I wouldn’t Myriad Landscape the enters tapped will bit you I promise.

I might cut a land to get Lightning Greaves and Muddle the Mixture (also tutors Isochron Scepter) but I know you’ve still have to trim 8 cards too lol.

I might but a draw X spell with like UUR attached to it for another cantrip like Opt or Sleight of Hand just so you don’t get caught, even maybe a Thrill of Possibility

Looking good, some expensive cards in there though!

Just notified me you posted a message too, I’ll read through that in the morning.
