Jack-Frost on It's Not Too Expensive, You're Too Cheap

zacktheprogamer You're correct, however as Time Spiral has the benefit of untapping my lands. Also, as I already own a copy of Time Spiral, the price difference doesn't bother me. The flashback is nice, but I mainly use the wheels as a way to refill my hand, so the untap ability is more valuable to me than the flashback. Thank you for the suggestion though!

Pikobyte I'm also curious if you've tried out Hullbreacher in the deck. It seems like the deck doesn't exactly hurt for mana in most cases but a flash card that can limit the table's options at worst and win games when flashed in against cards like Time Spiral could be worth a deck slot.

I'm curious, as I haven't gotten the opportunity to play too many games yet, what you would consider the weaker cards or flex spots of the deck.

Ryan Leser is someone from my LGS that I played with regularly in the before times. Hopefully I'll be seeing him again in the upcoming weeks. He came up with a deck that used Synthetic Destiny to drop I think 6 combo piece creatures like Deadeye Navigator , Peregrine Drake etc. so he had access to his entire deck and graveyard. It wasn't as streamlined or effective as the Thoracle combo but it worked. He made it specifically so he could beat his buddy's $1,000+ cEDH deck with a budget deck. I think his version was also below $100 though I can't remember for sure. I posted his original version here: Talrand Shenanigans (Original)

I would love to add Cyclonic Rift but I don't think I will. I prefer running my more expensive cards as proxies. I have decks with proxies and without proxies. The latter are pretty much universally budget decks - I proxy anything over or around $20 usually. I made an exception for Boseiju, Who Shelters All because I actually have multiple copies of it.

As for Time Spiral , $200 is a bit more than I'm willing to drop right now. I've never spent more than $40 on a single card, and I've only done that three times - foil MM Doubling Season, Sliver Queen and Oko, Thief of Crowns before he got banned almost everywhere. Really glad I got that Sliver Queen when I did, she is crazy now.

I'm definitely considering the suggestions you made for the upgrade to your own deck though. In particular Flusterstorm and Pact of Negation . I already have Swan Song in my version.

Romanowski13, the best upgrades would include improving the mana rocks. I’d replace any that enter tapped with the following (depending on your means): Arcane Signet , Jeweled Lotus , Mox Opal , Chrome Mox , Mox Diamond and Mana Crypt .

I’d add all of the powerful counter spells: Swan Song , Flusterstorm , Force of Will , Force of Negation , Pact of Negation , Fierce Guardianship , and Mana Drain .

I’d add the following lands: Temple of the False God , Boseiju, Who Shelters All , and Cephalid Coliseum .

I’d remove some of the slower card draw and tutors for Mystical Tutor , Personal Tutor , Time Spiral , and Timetwister .

I’d add better removal spells such as Cyclonic Rift . This would probably be the first change I’d make.

Since you’ve increased the budget, include Cyclonic Rift .

If you can afford it, include Time Spiral —-what a beast.

PS who is Ryan Lesser?

adw92: Oh yes, sadly the card price of Time Spiral exploded lately. I recommend to use Pull from Tomorrow , Day's Undoing or Magus of the Wheel instead, maybe Echo of Eons or Wheel of Misfortune could do the same.

thom-le What's a good alternative to $250 Time Spiral ?

Upvote this comment if you think I should add Time Spiral , even though it would reduce my hand size for later wheels (I already have the card).
