Unexpected Results Discussion

philosopher on Green splash on colorless canvas

1 month ago

Hello Morenoftheflag,

I found a deck that seth/saffronolive played and below are some lands that will help: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/2569192#paper

Shrine of the Forsaken Gods is good in the late game.

Nephalia Academy is good against thoughtseize decks.

Mage-Ring Network lets you store colorless mana.

Castle Garenbrig gets you 2 extra green mana

Unexpected Results is the only way cheat out an eldrazi in pioneer, that I know of, so this is a reason to splash blue to get your big bois out.

I hope this helps,

Philosopher

Unexpected Results, Sakura-Tribe Scout, Boundless Realms may deserve an eyeball. Trygon Predator is a lot of utility for Simic.

Aetherworks Marvel, Unexpected Results, Omniscience all fit the description but aren't great.

Reanimation like Blood for Bones and Bond of Revival could work if you just wanted to beat down with huge threats.

I'm guessing the Expertise series, Electrodominance, and As Foretold aren't what you're looking for.

Dubious Challenge, Madcap Experiment, Jalira, Master Polymorphist, and Dreamshaper Shaman also work.

Very nice deck!

I'm especially impressed that you built a Golos without a bunch of timmy moves to exploit his free cast ability. Most Golos decks are just sucker-punch strategies that punish you for being too dumb to take out Golos. But this one actually works with or without him!

(Also Unexpected Results , yaay!)

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

Call to the Kindred , Preeminent Captain , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord , Incandescent Soulstoke , Summoner's Egg , Quest for Ula's Temple , Descendants' Path / Leaf-Crowned Elder , AEthermage's Touch , Fold into AEther , Braids, Conjurer Adept , Reason / Believe also works as topdeck control, Call of the Wild / Impromptu Raid , Thran Temporal Gateway Champion of Rhonas , Dubious Challenge , Neoform / Allosaurus Rider , Deathrender , Unexpected Results

xtechnetia on Unexpected results and Awaken?

Awaken represents an alternative casting cost (Comprehensive Rules, 702.112a), and is thus subject to the rules of alternative casting costs. This means that any effect that lets you cast a spell "without paying its mana cost", like Unexpected Results , will only replace the normal casting cost with . Alternative casting costs are still what they usually are.

Note that Unexpected Results won't even let you pay alternative costs when you cast the spell you reveal. (You've already mentioned this yourself referencing the Gatherer rulings.)
