As Glimpsed Combo

Modern* Combo RUG (Temur)




This isn't going to work.

This is a combo deck where the intent is to accelerate into As Foretold or Electrodominance and cast Glimpse of Tomorrow . As long as you hit a Witness and As Foretold or two Witnesses and Electrodominance and Glimpse of Tomorrow , you can cast it again. Gilded Goose , Tireless Tracker , Tireless Provisioner , Lonis, Cryptozoologist , and Academy Manufactor mean that you net permanents in play with each resolution. Eventually you will resolve the combo enough that you will win off the Thassa's Oracle trigger.

If you have multiple Glimpses in hand and can hit RR on turn 2, putting one on Suspend is viable. I'm also running Electrodominance as an alternate way to kick the combo off, as well as Tolaria West to tutor Glimpse. This deck's mana is NOT THE BEST. Trying to support the red makes the mana painful but at least allows Bonecrusher Giant in the side. Wall of Blossoms and Lovestruck Beast are there to buy time against aggressive decks to get the combo off. Assuming no interaction, Lovestruck Beast represents two permanents, at least.

Based on goldfishing, shuffling in seven permanents gets decent odds of starting the loop. Eight or nine are better if you can wait a turn.

This is still a WIP and I also make no claim that this deck is, or will be, good. If I win ONE match with this playing in paper that's more than I expect.

Ghirapur AEther Grid and Reckless Fireweaver are alternate wincons. Both are blanked by infinite life (the shadow of Heliod looms over the format), and Aether Grid can clear away creatures but may be hosed by a Leyline of Sanctity or Pithing Needle type effect. I have the Fireweavers so that's what I put in.

Round 1: Amulet Titan 0-2 This was the best round, actually. Game 1 I whiffed on a Glimpse with 8 permanents but had I not I would have taken a game. Buildup-heavy Titan games are good for this deck, the only issue with this build is whether to name Slayers' Stronghold or Hanweir Battlements  Flip on Pithing Needle . Game 2 my opponent got Pact of Negation before I could double up combo pieces. Titan felt like a pretty winnable matchup, honestly, they don't interact and this deck can potentially go off just as fast.

Round 2: Grixis Death's Shadow 0-2 I'm talking actual old-school Thought Scour into Gurmag Angler . Stubborn Denial was not great to see, and that with Temur Battle Rage was able to take me out before I could get the combo off. Needing creatures in play being vulnerable to Dismember did not help me either.

Round 3: UW Vial-Blade 0-2 Opponent was on an Aether Vial tempo version of Stoneblade. Spell Queller was definitely bad to see, and my stuff in play being vulnerable to Skyclave Apparition wasn't great either. I'm going to blame it on a slight headache that I brought in Bonecrusher Giant instead of Foundation Breaker .

Round 4: Bye Hey I can beat a literal goldfish.

Thoughts after the night are if I should take my Urza's Saga out and make room for Blood Moon / Magus of the Moon in the main for some free match equity. Also potentially moving off of Lonis, Cryptozoologist and maybe Academy Manufactor to run some number of Chancellor of the Forge and Chatterfang, Squirrel General so if I fizzle on a loop in theory I gain a lot of 1/1 tokens.

The other consideration is Narset, Parter of Veils being able to find both halves of the combo.
