Voracious Reader Discussion
2 months ago
@Chino90: Thanks! My only issue with Discovery / Dispersal is that it costs one more mana compared to Tome Scour, which can be an issue (I guess not as big an issue if Voracious Reader is in play). And while choosing what cards you're throwing away is nice, Tome Scour mills a whole five cards which's really great for getting Cryptic Serpent into play early.
I'm gonna add it to the maybeboard and playtest it at some point though, see how much of a difference it makes in practice! Thanks for the suggestion :)

I like Curious Homunculus Flip but the flipped dude Voracious Reader doesn't synergise that well with your instants/sorceries. No effect on Counterflux / Serum Visions / Lightning Bolt , no one hard casts Rift Bolt , and Thunderous Wrath should only be Mircaled. So you only gain a benefit from Jaya's Immolating Inferno and Fight with Fire , and Jaya's Immolating Inferno is dependant on 6 other cards being on the field!
Feels slow, high CMC, and the synergy could be better. I agree with pretty much everything PhoenixNest said.

Docent of Perfection-this card is so much worse than metallurgic summonings why cant you see this
Goblin Electromancer- dual color requirements and unimpressive body makes this worse than curious homunculus, speaking of which,
As Foretold- this card is bonkers, its so good
Sphinx's Tutelage- Also I'm not as high on this card anymore, there are a lot of matchups where it will just help the opponent
Abrade- very good, all star card
Misdirection- This is much less good than Force of Will.

While it is slightly less effiecient in the beginning of the game, you might actually prefer Curious Homunculus Flip to baral. You only have 2 counterspells unless I missed something, so you would probably get more value out of post flip Voracious Reader Flip. It usually can flip fairly quickly in my experience.

Definitely interesting cards to toy around with. I wrote them off as slow durdle cards that didn't contribute enough to the gameplan when I was first building the deck, but looking at the deck they could do a bit more. Contingency Plan is typically card disadvantage until you realize how many cards have flashback/aftermath in addition to being a very obvious enabler for early Cryptic Serpents and Voracious Reader Flips. The only remaining problem with it is that oftentimes I'd rather be playing another one of my 2 drops in order to get a more immediate benefit. Pieces of the Puzzle looks good in that it almost guarantees I draw 2 nonland cards and then throw the rest into the grave for fuel, but if you are taking spells, you will likely only ever throw 1 spell into the grave with it (assuming you hit the required spells to draw). Thanks for the input!

Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora for cheap and efficient card-draw engines. They would draw less hate than Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, and since you only have two creatures in your deck, they would allow you to draw more cards than Skullclamp.
Mizzix's Mastery for graveyard recursion.
Do you have enough land to justify Doubling Cube?
Do you have enough card-draw to justify Thought Vessel?
With a counterspell to back it up, you can play Impending Disaster.
Ruination is a good way of getting rid of those annoying lands, and if your opponents are running four colors or more, it could potentially take out everything. It blows up annoying stuff like Boseiju, Who Shelters All, which could also be a great inclusion in your deck.
Land Equilibrium would be great, since your opponents will probably be playing more lands than you.

Sorry for the double-post, but I forgot to mention: I played against Mill the other day and Engulf the Shore was very effective against my Creature-heavy deck. I'm not sure it'd be good sideboard tech here, since it would reset any Voracious Reader Flips (and would be terrible if you end up running Thing in the Ice), but my opponent was always happy to get the additional ETBs from Manic Scribe and Minister of Inquiries.
