Yeah, why rely on Stifle and friends when you can use your existing counterspell suite to stop the Doomsday itself?

Doomsday...

EDIT: As I think about this more, isn't this just a far easier and less complicated win off Doomsday than @Smemmen's Lab Man / Unearth piles? The order of cards in your pile isn't super relevant anymore, because Oracle costs only 2 mana which is pretty trivial. You can make a pile that's just:

Draw spell, draw spell, draw spell, Thassa, something else

And even if it gets messed up a bit, that's fine because all you need to do is cast Thassa to win.

It doesn't. It has the same text as Snapcaster, in relevant part, and there are rulings explaining that you cannot pay a non existent cost.

@serracollector I like the way you're thinking here. Hitting Eons while you're busy going off with Frantic Search seems like big money.

What's better, though:

  1. Using Brain Freeze so your engine is also your kill; or
  2. Using Frantic Search so your engine is not a terrible card all by itself?

That's a strong interaction, as it basically reduces the Escape cost to 1 so you get to go looting through your deck as many times as you had cards in your yard. But - where does that end up getting you? Whats' the payoff? Your yard ends up empty so you're not going to Yawgwill anything. You need to have Tendrils in hand or available when you do this. It seems like you're converting cards in your yard into storm, which isn't bad but isn't something that storm decks have trouble doing already. On the other hand, Search is a better card overall than Freeze, so that's nice.

Whats your analysis on this?

One is more than zero 😛

Doesn't the brain freeze plus lions eye diamond / lotus kill just require less space and less bad cards?

All you have to do is jam a single brain freeze and then several underworld breaches in your deck it seems like you have a reasonable battle plan of being able to mail your opponent out at any given time. You're running lotus anyway. you could go all in on the combo by running more freezes and more Lions eyes but I'm not even sure that's necessary

Remember when WotC was so scared of Regrowth effects that they added exile clauses to all of them?

I know we've probably got better ways to draw 3 cards with 3 mana but... isn't this card just really freaking strong? Particularly if you're planning to go off that turn anyway?

The Mirage fetches already had fixed this just fine. They went too far with Invasion.
