Vedalken Orrery occurrence in decks from the last year

Vedalken Orrery Discussion
2 weeks ago
White is my favorite color in this game, so I naturally would be very interested in a set such as this one.
Since Worldly Tutor was reprinted in Commander Collection: Green, I believe that it is safe to presume that Enlightened Tutor shall be in the white set. I, myself, would very much like to see Righteous Aura reprinted, because, while it is not terribly expensive, it definitely needs to be reprinted in the new border style. I definitely think that either Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares will be in this set, due to their iconic status, and it would also be nice to have either a mass destruction, such as Planar Cleansing or mass revival spell, such as Second Sunrise.
Unfortunately, it is likely that both Command Tower and Sol Ring shall be in this set, since WotC will likely welcome the opportunity to give them new artwork, but I agree with plakjekaas that Arcane Signet needs to be reprinted, again, to keeps its supply high and price low. While discussing artifacts, Akroma's Memorial, Vedalken Orrery, and Book of Rass all very much needs reprints, as well, in my opinion.

some ideas for cuts: Acquire seems like generic goodstuff in this deck that doesn't seem to care about artifacts very much. Nothing wrong with goodstuff in general, but I feel like cards that don't fit your theme or help your strategy should be the first to go when making cuts. Thada Adel, Acquisitor seems to fit a similar mold, but it at least can benefit from being cloned.
Apex Devastator can cascade into some nice stuff, but it can also whiff, and the cascade trigger won't happen again if you clone it, which it seems is the main focus of the deck.
Hullbreacher is good, but cloning it won't give you any additional treasures, since the card draw will be replaced by the first one and then the clones won't see a card draw to replace for their own effects.
Keiga, the Tide Star is usually good in clone decks because it can die easily due to the legend rule. Since your commander stops that from happening, I would think twice about including it here. Not that a 5/5 flyer with upside if it happens to die is bad, it's just not as good without the legend rule.
Kozilek, the Great Distortion is another example of a card that is best when it's cast as opposed to cloned. Two somewhat evasive 12/12s are certainly better than one, but the needed colorless mana and lack of other upside for cloning it make me skeptical.
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath seems pretty bad here, because almost all of your clone effects have the clone entering as a copy, and not escaping, so they'd be sacrificed immediately. You'd still get the etb triggers, but I'd rather not waste a clone spell on that.
Congrats, I think you've found the only creature-based edh deck where Guardian Project doesn't work very well. Since most of your clones will be entering with the same name as a creature already on your board, you won't be drawing off of them.
You only have 15 enchantments in the deck, so you have a good chance of not having a target for Estrid's Invocation. I'd cut it.
You have 2 effects that untap your lands in Wilderness Reclamation and Seedborn Muse, but unless you draw Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery you don't have a whole lot you can do with that mana on other people's turns. If you still have 20 instants once you're down to 100 cards I'd say they're worth it, but I expect you'll be cutting some of those.

Ok, so there is Vedalken Orrery, which I somehow neglected. It totally needs to be in here. Now help me figure out what to cut for it.

You might also consider adding Vedalken Orrery if you have the budget. It'll allow you to flash out your gifts before combat damage is applied and mitigate a lot of the risk with Blim getting killed and then getting stuck with a bad card.

Here’s a few potential cuts! (I’d suggest moving them to the maybeboard)
Thought-Knot Seer (Effects that target only one player aren’t super)
Shimmer Myr (This effect would be far more effective if you could hold up a big Eldrazi to drop on any creatures that attack you, but Shimmer Myr doesn’t do that. If you really want a flash effect, Vedalken Orrery will give your other permanents flash too)

As the activated ability of Jareth, Leonine Titan does not include a or any activation restrictions in its effect, it can be activated any number of times as long as you have the mana to pay for its activation cost.
For protection, you can use the acronym DEBT to figure out what it's protected from.
- D - Damage
- E - Enchant/Equip
- B - Blocking
- T - Targeting.
If Jareth, Leonine Titan's activated ability is used during combat, and he blocks creatures, he is protected from damage that could be lethal, but that does not mean he is indestructible. If an opponent uses Wrath of God (with something like Vedalken Orrery to give it flash), Jareth, Leonine Titan will still be destroyed. Also, creatures like Gorgon Recluse can still destroy Jareth, Leonine Titan as a result of being blocked.
