Been doing well grinding Throne ladder in Diamond so far. Draws cards like nobody's business and ramps well too, which makes control players cry - so even if you don't win, you still win!
- Obstructive Flicker
: Mainly to negate board wipes. I opted for one that is cheap and serves a secondary purpose (anti-go-wide), but you could swap for Dazzle
or your choice of negation here.
- Mandatory Retirement
: Removal and relic removal.
- Haunting Scream
: Flex spot, I just chose this as screaming Entratius, Beckoning
usually results in a free unit, screaming a big Jufi, Sprite Seer
is nice for finishing damage, or screaming an Azindel, Mastermind
is nice for some nice life gain if we are low on health. These can also draw us a card if you have Xultan Ambassador
and/or Ring of Glamour
, and ramp with Sindain's Bracers
- Lumen Reclaimer
: Anti-mill, anti-Reanimator. Also prevents us from decking ourselves in long games.
- Mokhnati, Restored
: Top end flex spot. Pick something expensive here (we actually ramp pretty hard) with high impact to help close out games. I chose Mokhnati, Restored
as the influence cost is low, it has Overwhelm to break through chump blockers, and it refills our hand if it dies.
EDIT: Gonna try out Greater Plans
