I am personally going to use Vega, the Watcher . I am also going to leverage more than just foretell cards. Examples rebound, flashback, jump-start

legendofa on New hubs to be added

WestNileWerewolf Just added a Wheels hub.

TheBlackDragon0 Do you have something specific in mind for ETB? That's a broad name, and most interactions I can think of would be covered by Blink or a tribal selection.

TheRoaringRegisaur I added a Toughness Matters hub recently, so you should be good there. Chroma and Devotion should both be selectable from the ability keywords/tribal lists under the hub drop-down menu. "Alternate cast" is too broad and vague; I worry that any deck that has As Foretold or Aether Vial or whatever would end up there. If Vega, the Watcher ends up as a major archetypes, I'll take another look.

Icbrgr I dropped the Cruel Control hub for two reasons. First, as Femme_Fatale said, it's not a player in any major archetypes at this point, and I removed a lot of hubs that were major players for only a single Standard season. Second, the hub was being misused by all sorts of punishing control decks, regardless of colors or card inclusion. Abzan Prison might be cruel and controlling, but it's not Cruel Control.

Lionhearted1 There's a Snow hub available, so go for it.

Maybe other people can help out with this too:
Foretell has enough cards to synergize into a cohesive deck ( Cosmos Charger , Dream Devourer , etc ) but I don't think it'll live past standard unless Ranar gets popular. And I doubt that. BUT! Cards like Vega, the Watcher are much more versatile. I wouldn't be surprised if Vega flew over to modern or commander. Maybe there should be a hub for that but like, what would it be called? Alternative Costs/Casting? Tricks/Cheats? IDK I'm just putting it in Gimmick for now.

I am going Vega, the Watcher and use foretell, rebound, flashback and maybe adventure spells and things like that.

The idea behind the deck is less about theft and more about casting from various places besides the hand and gaining benefits, one of those places can be the opponents hands. A big card that inspired this sort of deck was Vega, the Watcher .
