Time Stretch Discussion

The mana value of all the spells you cast, added together, must be X or less. So if X=10, you could cast, say, Goblin Rally and Lava Axe , or you could cast Time Stretch , but you couldn't cast all three.

Fetchlands and shocklands are in quite a reasonable price range now and can help smooth out your land base as well, it’s usually pretty good to have some “free” shuffle effects. Or if that isn’t an option, at least Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are quite helpful for that as well.
A couple more big mana extra turn cards like Time Stretch could help.
Jace is ok here, but something like Saheeli, Sublime Artificer would be better as you’ll be casting a ton of non-creature spells and making a lot of tokens. Even Monastery Mentor can also help with that as well.
Hopefully this gives you some ideas to go with the deck if you want to keep it running. Good luck.

The best cards to Redirect would be extra turn spells. Nothing feels better than ripping off a Time Stretch . Redirecting removal targeting your stuff to someone else is a great way to unbalance a game in your favor, too. You can also steal Peer into the Abyss .

In the early days of the game, cards that granted extra turns did not exile themselves, such as Time Walk , Time Warp , Temporal Manipulation , Beacon of Tomorrows , or Time Stretch , which meant that a player could reuse them with the proper combos, but recent cards that grant extra turns exile themselves, such as Temporal Trespass , Part the Waterveil , or, most recently, Alrund's Epiphany , which means that they cannot be reused. Additionally, WotC has not printed any permanents that grant additional turns in recent years, with the most recent examples being Time Sieve and Medomai the Ageless . Even further, the original Timetwister did not exile itself, but Time Reversal does, which, again, prevents it from being reusable. At least Echo of Eons can be reused, and even has flashback, if the player does not have a way to return it to their hand.
In some cases, I can understand why WotC is using the self-exiling clause, such as Vengeful Rebirth or Finale of Revelation , I can understand the usage of that clause, since those spells would be far too powerful without it, but, for the others, I do not understand.
Why does WotC continue to put the self-exiling clause on extra turn cards or cards that shuffle a player's graveyard into their library? Do they feel that such effects would be too powerful if they were reusable? And is there any chance that WotC shall eventually print a new permanent that grants extra turns, albeit with a high cost?

Seriously, Lighthouse Chronologist is broken. A card designed for Modern, it becomes a cheaper Time Stretch, both in mana cost and monetarily, with one of the most ridiculous ceiling in EDH. I've taken more then 8 turns with this card. It's one of the best cards in my Derevi Deck. It should see so much more play then about 1,024 decks (taken from EDHREC). And yes, I know it dies to removal, but so does almost every creature. Does anyone have any ideas?
