Witching Well Discussion

Would you consider running a Witching Well over the Jeweled Amulet?

I would cut out one or more of the following as an emphasis: artifacts, enchantments, faeries, or tokens. Personally, I think artifacts is the weakest theme as of right now. Cards like Cranial Plating, Trading Post, Efficient Construction, and Witching Well don't do a whole lot (possibly Thopter Spy Network too). As a result of taking artifacts largely out, Emry, Luker of the Loch becomes pretty useless.

Your planeswalkers are interesting. They all play into the token theme very well.

Some cards I find are underwhelming: Daxos's Torment, Faerie Trickery, Whitewater Naiads, Harvestguard Alseids, Grim Guardian, Doomwake Giant, Agent of Erebos (I can see why you might play him), and Windfall.

There are some cards that are really good but could be easily cut such as Anointed Procession if you wanted to bring the price down.

Just gonna throw this tl;dr version of my facebook comment here so it doesn’t all get lost in my ramblings. :p

I’d suggest:

-2 Witch's Vengeance

-2 Shadowspear

-3 Witching Well

+3 Temple of Silence

+1 Castle Ardenvale

+1 Castle Locthwain

+2 Doom Foretold

+1 Guild Globe

+1 Golden Egg

+1 Dance of the Manse

Hope my musings have been of at least some help!

I think testing Witching Well would be a good idea. Also, didn’t notice before that you’re not playing 2x Courser of Kruphix which is straight gas against aggro decks, helps avoid flooding and is an ENCHANTMENT creature. Definitely belongs in this delirium deck. I find it very very useful in my Abzan midrange list.

If you go up to 4x JVP, Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time works reasonably well as a 2 or 3-of. If you don't want to dance around the delirium nonbo (which is perfectly reasonable), you might consider Hieroglyphic Illumination , Anticipate , or Opt . Witching Well also helps with delirium.

Sub Cancel for either Disallow or, probably better, Sinister Sabotage ; depending on what wincon(s) you like, Didn't Say Please could be excellent, too. You might also consider Censor or Supreme Will for more flexibility.

I would also find room for Overwhelmed Apprentice , and maybe even Vantress Gargoyle . If you add in Opt , you could also reduce land count.

Regarding lands, I would definitely consider two Castle Vantress and some number of Mystic Sanctuary . Memorial to Genius is a decent consideration, too.

If you're dead set on the Serpent, I'd also add in 4x Witching Well , though I think Gargoyle is a better wincon. Depending on which route you go, I'd also consider Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , or Into the Story . Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip is an all-star, too.

You might consider adding in Ipnu Rivulet or other colorless producing lands in order to play Spatial Contortion or Warping Wail , as well; if not, Walking Ballista is decent removal in Pioneer.

Cheers!

Cards I would change for others that just seems better IMO.

Hypersonic Dragon (You should replace it by Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation ... or even both)

Act of Treason (Put Insurrection instead, cost a lot, but can win you a game)

By Force ( Vandalblast is way better imo)

Reckless Air Strike (again, put something like Shattering Spree )

Courier's Capsule ( Witching Well )

Turn Aside (I understand it only cost one.. but something like Arcane Denial can counter anything and make you draw, which is excellent with any Niv)

Oppressive Will (Again, Mystic Confluence or Dream Fracture is insane)

Cards you can just cut out for others I have proposed

Adaptive Automaton

Loch Dragon

Quicksilver Dragon

Tandem Lookout

Engulfing Eruption

Reminisce (you already have Elixir of Immortality , and with Laboratory Maniac , I don't think you really need a second one)

Trepanation Blade

Pyromancer's Goggles but it's up to you honestly.. just have no good experience with this card personally

Panharmonicon (not sure why you play it tho..)

Izzet Keyrune

If you want to, you can drop the "dragon" part of the deck.. it's original, funny, but I think you don't need that to win.. So cards like Crucible of Fire , Dragon Tempest , Dragon's Hoard , can be replace.

3/4 drops are a bit on the high side for this sort of deck. I would consider more Hopes, Stonecoil Serpent (dodges Trophy/Decay); in black, you could also consider Golden Egg , but I think 0/1 drops are the way to go. Also, Witching Well is a cool one.

Also, Fabled Passage is a strict upgrade over Evolving Wilds , but I think untapped lands are important enough that playing Mana Confluence or even Aether Hub can be worth it over the taplands.

Other ideas: Inquisitive Puppet , Walking Ballista , Hangarback Walker , Animating Faerie
