Thought Scour Discussion

jaymc1130 on Esper Stoneblade 4

Drown in the Loch has probably been the best performing piece of interaction for Esper Stoneblade in my testing and it has nice synergy with targeted discard and Thought Scour as the cantrip of choice. I have really not been enthused with the performance of Spell Queller in the vast majority of meta matchups, it just dies too easily to all the cheap, effective removal options to be counted on as much more than a temporary 1 turn delay most of the time. I feel like 3 man lands is definitely ideal for control oriented Stoneblade variants, I run 2 Tar Pit and one Colonnade in my list at the moment. Fun deck to play, but I've had trouble putting together a variant that has more advantageous matchups than disadvantageous ones so let me know how testing goes for you if you find some nifty tech.

wallisface The problem with Mind Funeral is the "randomness" of the card, you can mill 20 cards, but what if you mill only 7? With 3 mana is too risky in my opinion. Manic Scribe Provides you a bit of mill and a decent defence agnist aggro early game. Thought Scour is not a bad card, but in the deck we already have Visions of Beyond . Anyways thank you for the advice,maybe I'll give a try to Thought Scour cause it works well with Scheming Symmetry .

This deck is looking very good, and very close to what is being played in the more serious competitive scenes. I’d say you don’t need to change anything other than Manic Scribe ... almost any mill spell will net you more value, Mind Funeral seems like a better fit, or Thought Scour .

You’re right to avoid Fraying Sanity ... the text looks inviting but it’s a trash card that’ll just make the deck clumsy. Running a single copy is usually viable, but running any more than 1 just ends up creating the risk of drawing more than 1.. and drawing a second copy is the same as missing out on a draw entirely. There’s a reason 90% of competitive mill avoids this card, and those that do use it, just use 1.

Anyway, awesome looking deck! +1!

If you are already using Thought Scour in your deck, consider running 4 copies of Rune Snag . I use it in my mono blue delver deck. I prefer it over Mana Leak since it can be less of a dead card in late game.

Also, for delver, Serum Visions is strictly better than Opt , as the 2 scry after the draw lets you prepare for flipping it on the next turn.

Also, for a delver deck, you need to run less creatures in order to make the flipping reliable. I have found 12 creatures to work for me.

Check out my take on JP's Izzet Delver (which I tore apart in favor for mono blue) for other suggestions, and a sample sideboard.

Sorin_Markov_1947 Ponder is banned in Modern, as well as Preordain . The premiere blue cantrips are Opt , Serum Visions , and sometimes Sleight of Hand and Thought Scour .

I'll think about it. Sounds good... Maybe I'll try it at the next FNM I go with the deck. The reasoning behind Thought Scour is that it is very important to have any Logic Knot I draw "online" as soon as possible, since the deck cannot function without some early permission spells to back up any threat I deploy. But I don't know... maybe the capability to see the Opp's hand turns out to be more powerful in a practical scenario... Thanks for the suggestion!! All suggestions are welcome!!

True, my bad. I really enjoied the deck, seems pretty annoying to the oponent - and I like it. Thought Scour seems a bit out of porpouse. Maybe Peek ? Is a Gitaxian Probe legal. To me, see opponent's hand seems better than mill 2 cards.

First up Propaganda isn't modern legal. I'm also unsure what Thought Scour and Cloudstone Curio actually do for the deck, so they seem like easy cuts.

It seems a little slow at the moment, you won't drop anything meaningful until T3. I think 4x Wall of Omens fits very well to have early board presence and draw. 1x Heliod, God of the Sun would also be a good include.

I think 4x Runed Halo would be better than 4x Psychic Corrosion , maybe include 1-off if mill is your alternate win-con. 2x Wrath of God or 2x Supreme Verdict may be better than Oust to help against aggro.

Another sideboard option: 1x Greater Auramancy
