McToters on This Is Gonna Take A While

Hey there, cool deck!
For infinite tokens and red mana there’s this combo: Bishop of Wings + Arcane Adaptation + Kykar, Wind's Fury .

Mana Geyser + Reiterate is another infinite mana combo as long as your opponent has plenty of tapped lands.

I would personally not use Spellbook if you’re already running Reliquary Tower . I’m not too sure about Sluggishness in here also, unless there’s a particular combo I’m not seeing.

This isn’t something you may go far but since you are already running Narset, Parter of Veils you can also run Windfall , Winds of Change , Teferi's Puzzle Box , Reforge the Soul , Wheel of Fate or Wheel of Fortune . If you do, you force your opponent to get rid of their hand and only draw one card while you get a new hand. Pretty mean but it’s powerful.

Overall I like your list of instants you are running. Seems like they all should work really well! +1 Good luck

Hey, you're welcome. Been a while since I commented on your deck. I like the changes you've made. You've learned a lot in 9 months. The differences are huge, good job. Are you consistently winning?

I think your deck can use streamlining. What I see is lots of high mana cost redundancy which you don't need because it's making the avg. CMC very high, rounded up 4.0. It's high because there's too many high mana cost cards. Consider cutting several for low mana cost cards that draw? Remember you have your high mana cost card that you want to cast, it's sitting in the Command Zone.

Streamlining means cutting unnecessary cards such as Arcanis the Omnipotent , Venser's Journal , Time Stretch and Warstorm Surge . Arcanis is not needed because you have Consecrated Sphinx and Niv-Mizzet, Parun ; both will draw many more cards, even the turn you play them and are flying threats. Having three six drop flying threats is enough. Journal is high mana cost no max hand size effect which is not needed when you have three other low mana cost cards that are better that give you this effect. You have Time Warp and Beacon of Tomorrows so you don't also need to play Stretch since Stretch is 10 mana. Both Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge are better than Surge and Surge is six mana.

Another part of your deck that could use some improvements is the manabase. 26x basic lands is a lot and you don't have to play so many because there's even budget playable lands you could add. I'll suggest budget lands and some nonbudget ones:

Other cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God: can't tap for mana until you have five lands in play.
  • Venser's Journal
  • Arcanis the Omnipotent
  • Time Stretch
  • Warstorm Surge
  • Mana Flare
  • Jushi Apprentice / Tomoya the Revealer
  • Psychic Spiral
  • Windreader Sphinx
  • Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur
  • Omniscience
  • Gilded Lotus
  • Darksteel Ingot
  • Keep Watch
  • Dragonshift
  • Enter the Infinite
  • Thought Reflection
  • Fateful Showdown

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hi weezel,

Winds of Change too risky, plus I'm running a heavy tutor package, will disrupt myself. Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast probably better solutions.

The reason I choose Thoughtseize is just to give me a modular card to discard Worldgorger Dragon / Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker as well. This supplements the Faithless Looting .

I've tried to build out a Lion's Eye Diamond Doomsday pile, but I don't have a Laboratory Maniac so not sure how else to build the stack. Of the 5-pile, I need 3 of the cards!

Yes, T1/T2 I Dark Ritual + Doomsday , then T2/T3 I probably have 4,5 mana maybe with a Chrome Mox , Sol Ring , Mana Vault , Mana Crypt , Ancient Tomb , etc. I won't have CMC7 on T2 and probably not T3. Have to be able to play into an infinite win-con for CMC4 preferably, CMC5 possibly.

I think we might have discussed this before, not too sure but thoughts on Winds of Change in place of Thoughtseize yea you have the possibility of others benefiting off of it.

Or hell, even a Lion's Eye Diamond , granted your hand goes bye bye but you dump what you need in your graveyard with a cost of Maybe even crack it in response to Winds of Change or dumping it while tutoring with Razaketh, the Foulblooded

Ever thought of running Final Fortune or cards alike? Might be a card that would be instantly countered. Which then you can use as a decoy to play what you really want? Okay, just being silly now.

Still considering good ol' Mishra's Bauble ? Lol

Whenever someone wants to play wheels I'll always suggest Narset, Parter of Veils its incredible if you can cast it and a wheel on the same turn. Effectively, you lock everyone into top deck hero mode but yourself. Winds of Change is also pretty spicey.
