DemonDragonJ If it were to put it directly on the battlefield, I'd compare it to Wargate .

What about a Sosuke's Summons -like card that creates a Dragon, Angel or Demon token, and comes back to your hand when you cast a nontoken one?

The reason it doesn't quite make it is it's color intensive and slow overall for what the deck wants.

It's not a bad card for sure - but I don't think Wargate adds a dimension to the deck other tutors don't already add in a more efficient manner.

Like you said the 5 CMC tutors don't really make it in to this deck since in 4C we essentially get the best of the best.

As far as tutors go, what're your thoughts on Wargate ? I appreciate that it's a bit expensive mana wise, however given the fact that it puts the tutored permanent straight into play, when comparing it with something like Tezzeret the Seeker , Grim Tutor or Dark Petition (presumably the next best set of tutors that the deck doesn't currently run) it ends up being the same cost to put an Isochron Scepter into play.

The other benefit of Wargate is that you only reveal on resolution, meaning you can get something like Gilded Drake or Notion Thief without giving away said information until it happens. It also pseudo-protects whatever you're fetching since if the spell is countered, it just leaves the card in the library. And since the deck has a lot more tutors that it does graveyard recursion, it opens up additional attempts to get said card rather than leaving it vulnerable to graveyard hate.

You might like these: Bring to Light (basically a second copy of Scapeshift), Wargate (grabs Maze's End), Hour of Promise , Pir's Whim , Lotus Cobra , Golos, Tireless Pilgrim .

To combat mill, you could try Ramunap Excavator , Crucible of Worlds , Titania, Protector of Argoth , Unburial Rites , all of which have some uses with other cards in the deck anyway.

GrinningGrebe these are all definitely cards to squeeze in. I really appreciate the heads up on Manipulate Fate I have never seen this card. Drift of Phantasms i think i can definitely find a creature spot for. I like Wargate but may be hard to find a spot. I want to keep Approach of the Second Sun which would probably be the slot it would go in.

Have you considered some tutors to improve consistency ? I know that not everyone likes to play them, but with a gameplan like yours could be certainly something to think about.

  • Manipulate Fate is just one of the multiple tutors capable of putting all your "cast-from-exile" creatures directly where they need to be. All this while drawing you a card!
  • Wargate can pick each of your combo pieces and can act as ramp if played for X as 0 to pick a land.
  • Drift of Phantasms can be transmuted into Food Chain or Scourge and is a good budget option.
