Budget Teferi's Puzzle Box Deck

Deck Help forum

Posted on July 14, 2019, 10:42 p.m. by Nthanel

Ok guys. I have been out of the game for quite some time and now My wonderful group of friends have dragged my GF and I back in to this nonsense. We operate a a small budget in most things, that said The GF has expressed an interest in having a Teferi's Puzzle Box Style deck that she once had years ago. So I am reaching out to see what the local brains could put together to have a cheap and effect deck built around that card/theme. This doesnt have to be tourney style competitive ( We mostly play with friends though that can get kinda competitive I guess). Thanks!

Play Narset, Parter of Veils and make your opponents saltier than the Dead Sea?

i love Teferi's Puzzle Box ... i had a deck where i would use it with Psychic Possession and somthing like Sphinx's Tutelage for mill deck... making Vapor Snag just as good/better than Path to Exile in mono ..... if mill isnt fun for her/you than maybe a giant beat stick like Chasm Skulker would be more fun?

My personal thought is Notion Thief if you want to be evil, Hoofprints of the Stag and Horizon Chimera for a more clean tempo sort of thing, or maybe use it in a dredge combo.

Control with Notion Thief and Narset, Parter of Veils forces your opponent to topdeck on turn 4. Teferi's cycles for other win cons like Sphinx's Tutelage or Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank , or even Teferi himself in Esper. Howling Mine helps me get there as well.

Thanks for the card suggestions, Guys. I will keep an eye on these. What about some deck lists that I could look at?

Nthanel Unfortunately, no modern decks featuring Teferi's Puzzle Box have been making top 8 lists.

Most modern decks will have emptied their hand by turn 4, and puzzle box won't affect them.

There are a couple MTGTop8 u/w decks that run 1 Puzzle Box with 3 Narsets. But that isnt really the crux of the deck, and it isnt what's winning them games.

These arent modern or top 8s but semi casual Commander guys.

I vote going the mill route with 4x Sphinx's Tutelage and 4x Jace's Erasure ... to work with 4x Teferi's Puzzle Box I think 4x Remand / Negate is a solid Counterspell to have as well as universal bounce spells like Boomerang / Into the Roil / Echoing Truth ... this way the nastiest stuff gets returned to the hand and ultimately gets milled away... cram in some cantrips like Thought Scour / Serum Visions ... maybe Howling Mine and that should be a good enough kitchen table modern legal brew....22-24 Island ? Maybe a Halimar Depths / Ghost Quarter just to be fancy?
