No cards here. :(

cut elspeth, capsize, hushwing
add hushbringer, ephemerate, brazen borrower

2019/10/06 -
Pending updates:
cut elspeth sun's champion, capsize, hushwing gryff
add hushbringer, ephemerate, brazen borrower

-sub altar of dementia for blasting station

Shortest tenure ever for a card with riptide lab. Cut riptide lab for prismatic vista.

-Cut Venser the SOjourner, add Tidespout Tyrant

Cut trophy mage, boreas charger
add smothering tithe, windborn muse

-teferi's protection

I think I might wanna put serra ascendant and maybe ranger of eos back in here. The board control from those guys might be some of what I was missing.

-austere command
-thalia's lancers
+hour of revelation
+winds of abandon

planned changes
-thalia's lancers (out)
-flickerwisp (in still)
-austere command (out)
+hour of reckoning (in)
+winds of abandon (out)
+soulherder (in, but need foil)

Also want to go
-trophy mage
-oblivion stone
+something else
But not sure yet.

Thoughts on what to remove for soulherder and winds of abandon:
Flickerwisp -> Soulherder
Sword of Feast and Famine -> Winds of Abandon?
Thalia's lancers -> Hour of Revelation?

Then what do I do to get a foil brainstorm in there? It's possible it's better than mystical tutor, but I dunno. I can just put that off I guess.  Might be better to cut trophy mage for Brainstorm if I can only get blasting station/o-stone, but not sure.

Inventors' Fair definitely needs to come out.

I think I want to add  brainstorm, and maybe ponder and not sure how to achieve that, esp when ponder foils are so expensive haha :P

cut lightning greaves, fellwar stone, helm of possession, stoneforge mystic
add mox diamond, monastery mentor, teferi's protection, sensei's divining top

cut tolaria west for myriad landscape
cut sakashima's student for body double

2018/12/29 notes
potential stoneforge package swap
+time warp
+teferi's protection
+monastery mentor
+sweeper (terminus? Hour of revelation? Hour of Rev is probably pretty good since it's so cheap, or evacuation?)

Also need to work body double in (sakashima's student or archaeomancer or helm of possession)

Small round of cuts
-timestream navigator
-cloudstone curio
-aether vial
+blasting station

Notes on if I cut the stoneforge package;
Cards that go out
-sword of feast and famine
-lightning greaves
-timestream navigator (since the combo requires untapping now)
-possibly jitte, but I

Cards that might go still like that as a muddle + thalia's lancers target
Blasting Station (combo! w lark)
teferi's protection
deadeye navigator?
Emeria shepherd?
Boreas charger
Mistmeadow Witch
Reflector mage
Stunt Double
clever impersonator
Palinchron (ugh that foil is expensive)
Silumgar Sorcerer
angel of invention
Celestial Crusader
Monastery mentor (the foillll)
oketra's monument
Restoration angel
selfless squire
angel of condemnation
teferi, hero of dominaria

What creatures? Maybe something that pumps the team? Emeria Shepherd maybe?

I also want to cut Aether vial for tithe at some point I think

-cut mother of runes for remorseful cleric

stuff i might consider cutting
potential cuts
mother of runes
snapcaster mage --> Archaeomancer
aether vial
sakashima's student

stoneforge/jitte/lightning greaves

as foretold
land tax

get foil archaeomancer, remorseful cleric, body double

I need to get a foil body double and try it out in this deck

+as foretold

-aven mindcensor
+loyal retainers
+faerie artisans

2016/09/21 - I should really consider a springleaf drum in this deck. Man thats' a good idea.

2016/08/22 update
Notes on what I think I want to do to support recruiter/sanctum prelate
+whitemane lion
+sanctum prelate
+recruiter of the guard
+aether vial

-oreskos explorer (meh)
-walking atlas (meh)
-vendilion clique (been awful)
-identity thief (been really awful)

2016/07/25 update
-voidmage husher -- just the only 4 drop cut I could think of, gotten a little slow in my meta.
-mana drain -- I traded mine off so time to cut it.

+spell queller - yeah.
+identity thief - I think this card is going to be insane. I hope I'm right. It's certainly bonkers with gilded drake, but not sure what else it's good for yet. Maybe I'll get to live the blightsteel colossus dream :)

Once my bribery shows up I want to
-archangel of thune
+muddle the mixture

5/24 change
-restoration angel
+linvala, keeper of silence

5/10 change
kor haven
anafenza, kin-tree spirit
rune-tail, kitsune ascendant

gold myr

5/4 notes
* Cut Flagstones of Trokair for an Island
* Cut 1 plains for 1 Island


If I want to competitively tune this up, cards I'd play:
Palinchron (goes in for er, something)
Deadeye Navigator (replaces Aetherling)
Body Double (replaces Archangel of Thune)
Karmic Guide (replaces...??)
Intuition (no idea)
Mirror Entity (some lower cmc dude)

Most likely -- intuition for body double/karmic guide/reveillark is a really strong win con.

2/9 - maybe replace something with cloudstone curio.

-Replace Angel of the Dire Hour, Thalia, and maybe Containnment Priest with vendillion clique, vedalken aethermage, and sower of temptation.

Next moves
-replace mirran crusader with thraben doomsayer
-replace whitemane lion with that new manifest enchantment
-replace thassa and clever impersonator with something else that's more fun. Maybe a bit more blinky? Maybe academy rector or enlightened tutor? Maybe just a couple more answers?
-Replace winding canyons with another land!!

Current cutlist:
Whitemane Lion
Mirran Crusader

I actually think I want to cut Saltskitter. It's...really a donothing card. Trying cutting Saltskitter for Dust Elemental. Also could put Brimaz back in, or Intuition, or sakashima the Impostor.

Probably cut Catastrophe for Angel of the Dire Hour, and Austere Command for? Or Death or Glory? Or thousand winds? False prophet?

Brimaz and Thassa might be good cuts for more 2 drops or 3 drops. Maybe Sygg River Guide and eight-and-a-half tails?

Potential new cuts:
0 cmc
1 plains
3 cmc
Brimaz, King of Oreskos (probably not the best 3cmc beater)
Thassa, God of the Sea (can't make devotion often)
4 cmc
Heliod, God of the Sun
6 cmc
Austere Command
Sun Titan

Cut geist, grand arbiter, leonin arbiter, and meddling mage for
mirran crusader, ranger of eos, mother of runes, and clever impersonator

Still unsure about clever impersonator/mirran crusader

-cut solemn for luminarch ascension
-cut pearl medallion for stormscape familiar--little more vulnerable but does a lot more (swings, triggers ephara, flies!!).

I really want to find room for my perplexing chimera in this deck. All the flicker and bounce is epic.

I really should be playing Luminarch Ascension.
Angel of the Dire Hour seems good but a little sluggish costwise
And maybe think about Elesh Norn.

Cards I'm questionable on
Meddling Mage (not fun)
Leonin Arbiter (needs wings)
Geist of St. Traft (requires equipment to be good)
Solemn Simulacrum (too expensive ramp slot)
Grand Arbiter Augustin IV (needs wings, not fun)

Other stuff I might like:
Scout's Warning
Dakra Mystic (maybe add to ranger of Eos package)
Soul Warden (Maybe add to ranger of Eos package)
Umezawa's Jitte
Deputy of Aquittals
Puresteel Paladin
Precinct Captain
Thada Adel, Acquisitor
Eidolon of Rhetoric
Mirran Crusader
Kor Sanctifiers (sometimes 3)
Dust Elemental
Hero of Bladehold
Clever Impersonator
Sakashima the Impostor
Dictate of Heliod
Cathars' Crusade
Perplexing Chimera

Big elspeth has been such ridiculous value with Venser/flickerwisp shenanigans.

I think it might be good to adjust those for some other kind of CA.
Maybe some more flash creatures or bounce creatures. Maybe a Thistledown liege since it's awesome.
