Have some time to reflect on how the tournament went, and what to do with the deck moving forward.

1st Round: UW Spirits (literally the precon) Got kinda embarrassed in this match; I drew poorly, and my opponent drew quite well, but I must admit the deck also wasn't fully ready for the matchup. My reasonable board of ground creatures couldn't do much against the flyers game 1, even gaining life on the attack with two Gifted Aetherborn and chunking in for 2-4 a turn with a Dream Devourer. I never drew any removal, but I also don't think I was really playing enough to respect the matchup. Warping Wail was reasonable, killing a lord with another on the stack, but not fantastic. There are 0 sorceries to get here, and the token could never chump anyways. Game 2, I used Cry of the Carnarium for a one-sided board wipe to kill 3 of his 4 creatures (the last was a Supreme Phantom. Then he ripped a Watcher of the Spheres and an Empyrean Eagle in the next two turns and I died anyways. Bad beats, such is life. 0-2

Round 2: Lotus Field Combo This one was somewhat a reversal of the last match. Deck had a ton of things to get with Warping Wail and Thought-Knot Seer and he had trouble racing some aggressive dudes. Game 2, I brought in some Thoughtseizes and Go Blanks and it was kind of a rout. It really is crazy how good Warping Wail is here, dealing with their Wish effects pretty well (and Sweltering Suns and its ilk postboard). I'd board in 4 more if I could, ha ha ha. 2-0

Super small this week, they were running two formats simultaneously alongside quite a few other games, so it was just the 2 rounds. Starting relatively soon they're going to shuffle the times/dates around a bit, so I should have more competitive tournaments to build off of. Deck is fun when it works and you're at least doing things even when it doesn't, I'm satisfied and will keep tuning.

Not running more Dryad seems like a mistake. Since you have one in the sb to wish for, I think 3 would be much better than 2.

How exactly do you sideboard with Wish? For example, if you're playing against living end would you move one void mirror mainboard and then keep one in the side to wish for? Or bring both in? What about Anger vs aggro (in which case living it in the sideboard would delay casting it for another turn which could possibly mean the difference between winning and losing)?

Fablabthank you for your suggestions. Sorry that it took me a while to respond to your comment, i was taking a break from mtg until eldraine rotated out haha. Firstly, I want to say that i have created multiple variations of the list. https://scryfall.com/@Shrokabaloo/decks/8fa52743-551d-4ee0-982d-4601f1456da3 This is the list, i am in the process of updating the primer to fit this list. Basically, Sublime Epiphany was underperforming so i cut it. Vorpal Sword is such an amazing replacement for Embercleave omfg. The downside is that it cant be played turn one, but we can definitely use treasures to cast it. I was thinking Wish could be another win con, stick a Magma Opus Alrund's Epiphany or even some removal or something. Xorn is also a potential body that acts like a weaker Goldspan Dragon. Additionally, in terms of potential changes, Expressive Iteration might be some good card advantage. now that the triomes are gone, one drops are more important as well. as for Hand of Vecna,that might be good, but i dont know how good it is without the other vecna pieces. Sorcerer Class has the new flashback looting in uw, as a better alternative, but that may be good. Inferno of the Star Mounts is a good win con, and mana sink, what remains to be seen is how it interacts with the new meta.and finally, Demilich is something i dont think would work very well, but if the deck ever gets a higher quantity of instants/sorceries i will reconsider. Thanks for your suggestions, and I think that since the deck could hold its own in standard with 7 sets, and we only lose 2 cards and some lands in rotation, the deck will be at great place after rotation.
