I will definitely be trying out Primal Amulet. Pyromancer's Goggles and Ruby Medallion are both great here, so I could see this coming in replacing (or in addition to?) Helm of Awakening.Quote from rogerandover »Wow, a bunch of new cool items for Squee in this set, at least for me. All DFC's
Primal Amulet/Primal Wellspring - I'm actually not sure if this will pull it's weight, but it looks cool. Copying some burn spells is never a bad thing
Thaumatic Compass/Spires of Orazca - A Journey's Kite (which i don't run in the first place), but the Maze of Ith that also taps for mana seems like a welcomed land for my deck. I tend to get a lot of focus, since I don't run that many creatures. And searching for lands, which can either be played or sac'ed to Seismic Assault seems decent.
Vance's Blasting Cannons/Spitfire Bastion - An Outpost Siege (since I would only use only use the khans), but with added benefit to maybe get a Lightning Bolt on a land. Getting there might take some effort, but I think it will be worth it.
I am not certain on Vance's Blasting Cannons. The land side is phenomenal, basically Valakut #2, but I do not play Outpost Siege since it is just a bit slow and messes with my sequencing. The fact that you cannot play lands off of VBC probably means it is a pass for me, but I can definitely understand why it could be included.
Thaumatic Compass is an easy pass for my build, I think. Squee and Wheel effects generate the raw card advantage, and this deck already does a great job of hitting all its land drops. Don't really want a Maze of Ith; I'd rather just burn the creatures or hide behind Glacial Chasm.
No, the biggest card I am excited for is Star of Extinction. I can't wait to smash someone with Repercussion or Stuffy Doll or whatever. It probably replaces Inferno, I guess, but that makes me sad because Inferno was the card that really inspired the deck.
Also worth noting is Repeating Barrage, the new Hammer of Bogardan variant. I am actually looking at this really closely, since looping Hammer usually happens in the very late game, and if you have at least 13 mana, this new card outperforms Hammer, since you can recur and/or cast it multiple times in the same turn. I will have to pay attention to whether or not Squee is available to attack in those scenarios.
