@moorebrother1 That list is a bit disappointing to me from a builder's perspective. Isn't that basically Jeskai mentor but replacing 2x dreadhordes with a miser copy of underworld breach and brainfreeze for "oops, combo" wins? Breach is likely red yawg-will here and the brainfreeze will just fuel it and delve spells and randomly steal a win off dredge. I'm sure the cards are great here - but doesn't jeskai mentor just win anyway, even if you never see these spells? I was hoping more for a breach list - not an established list just using breach as yawg will.

Lion's Eye Diamond is a Jeskai Mentor card?

The entire thought process behind the deck was to build a xerox style strategy with a powerful combo finish to beat other xerox decks, if I recall chubby's statements correctly. It is notably dipping into black as a 4th color in order to facilitate that, which pretty obviously separates it from normal jeskai mentor.

@smmenen it is now, lol
Seriously though. Lion's eye diamond is obviously a Burning wish Tendrils card.

Would a tinker be worth trying in that list?

I am playing tinker in my list as an additional copy of LED/Lotus and since it is already good there, also a way to grab citadel. Which while it isn't as good as it is in PO is still pretty dang impactful.

@smmenen That's a bit disingenuous. There are only a few cards different here, mainly replacing dreadhorde to get quick burst/combo value in place of long term "double all your 1cmc spells" value. That's like me taking Ravager shops, replacing 3 cards with stonecoil when it was printed and calling it a new deck.

Not dogging the deck. It still looks as powerful as, say, jeskai mentor, but with 3-4 cards changed to add a synergistic combo. I was just saying I was hoping to see a new archetype/deck come out of this card, not just a copy added to an established deck type. This deck is fine for what it is, it's just not what I was hoping this new card would breed - from a builder's pov.
