@darkquarterer yeah I tried that split (and many others). But I'm still trying to work out the correct recipe xDuress/yBrutality/zDefense Grid/1 Hurkyl's/? Chain of vapour... That can easily add up to 9-10 cards if you''re not careful and I believe that is where I still need to do the most tuning/trimming.
@jsakpc Haven't tried Night's Whisper because I do not believe 2cc cantrip is where I want to be. Feels wrong tapping out T2 to draw 2. I rather cast Preodain and follow up with Duress, Dark Ritual, etc... I'm now back on 4 Preordain as I feel consistency is what some of my versions might have been lacking. (I currently cut the 3rd colour to...)
