Tibalt's Trickery

Tibalt's Trickery

Instant

Counter target spell. Choose 1, 2 or 3 at random. Its controller mills that many cards, then exiles cards from the top of their library until they exile a nonland card with a different name than that spell. They may cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then they put the exiled cards on the bottom of their library in a random order.

Tibalt's Trickery Discussion

Octrate on It's Tough to be Xenagod

Hey again Profet93! To answer your questions:

  1. I've not yet wiffed on Reflecting Pool, though I can see how that could be an issue at some point. Thankfully, the high prevalence of fetchlands at my disposal allows me to very consistently get the colors I need rather easily.

  2. Urza's Saga is purely here to get Sol Ring to get a fast Xenagos into play on turn 3. Shadowspear is a nice worst case, but I've only had to grab it a handful of times.

  3. Wheel of Fortune (and by extension, Wheel of Misfortune), are extremely good. I usually save it for when I'm low on gas or have a TON of mana to abuse. I'll try and avoid casting it if someone has a portion of mana untapped as well, but... I don't mind playing risky at times. The circumstances vary, but if you can proxy it or have access to it, I recommend giving it a spin.

As for your suggestions, I am still running Rancor at the moment. It has hilariously gotten me a win or two with a Birds of Paradise and an extra combat spell. As for the others, I'll keep a few in mind. I've been thinking about Heroic Intervention, as well as Tibalt's Trickery, but for now, I am satisfied with my current spells.

Always appreciate your feedback. Thanks again.

Bloody comments section!! Lofty Denial, Weathered Runestone. Lavinia, Azorius Renegade might be worthwhile, at least until Tibalt's Trickery is banned in the format:D Guardian of Faith might be worthwhile as extra board wipe protection. Strict Proctor is another one for slower match-ups, disrupts a surprising number of effects. Leyline of Sanctity in case of hand disruption?

Ok, I have a few budget friendly suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down using your custom categories.

Lands: Exotic Orchard.

Tokens: I almost suggested Captain's Claws... it probably belongs in this category. Hanweir Garrison  Meld deserves a spot though.

Disruption: Chaos Warp, Generous Gift, and Tibalt's Trickery.

Card Advantage: I'd move Emberwild Captain here (or defense) thanks to drawing off the monarch. Welcoming Vampire deserves a spot though. Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner might deserve consideration too depending on how often you end up handless.

Haste: Ogre Battledriver gives haste while giving a boost... including for all your tokens that enter tapped and attacking making them all 3/1.

Utility: Odric, Master Tactician and Gustcloak Savior both allow you to swing safely turn after turn instead of just once like the Master Warcraft. Mirror Entity is another cheap way to buff your whole team and finish games.

Mana Ramp: Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Conviction deserve spots.

Attack Triggers: Signal Pest and Soltari Champion are both excellent ways to buff your entire team (including all the enters tapped and attacking stuff) by 2 power which adds up FAST. Fireflux Squad exiles tokens and digs for actual creatures off the top of your deck for free... it's pretty nuts.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Isshin - Army of Darkness

Tibalt's Trickery isn't legal because of the 4x Violent Outburst + 1x Tibalt's Trickery + 4x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn deck.

About the deck, it seems to be a little unfocused. Although Shivan Meteor is a suspend card, it isn't that good unless you're hitting your own Boros Reckoner with it. Similarly, Reckoner doesn't have much synergy with the rest of the deck either.

Also, I definitely think it would be nice if you could work in a few more "unfair" elements of suspend to the deck, as opposed to using suspend to turn a Rift Bolt into a bolt or a Gargadon into a goyf. One nice unfair suspend interaction is the Greater Gargadon + Restore Balance combo for example. And then there's all the ways to cheat in suspend cards like Electrodominance, Kari Zev's Expertise, cascade cards, etc.

In this deck, Fury Charm doesn't seem that great. Only the destroy artifact mode is any good, and then its just a worse Smelt. I don't think I need to explain why the second mode isn't great, and the third mode turns Gargadon from "1R, wait 4 turns" into "2RR, wait 2 turns and also go down on card advantage". The reusable time counter removers are way better.

Also unsure about 4 maindeck Spellskite, especially given that I think you want to be dropping a timebug or suspending a gargadon on t2. Seems more like a sideboard card.

For the sideboard, I don't think you need 4 Needles.

Counterspell / Boomerang effects are the worst cards to go against. Tibalt's Trickery or Guttural Response might be worth looking at.
