Quote from Oopssorryy »Like many, I've been putting a lot of thought into the Thopter combo. While most people have been looking to Jeskia, Esper, or UW/UB builds, I've been tossing around the idea of a Bant build. Why Bant? Why to utilize Glittering Wish! I figured that running the Wish would allow us to run "seven" Thopter Foundry, along with a wish board to take out all of the enchantment based hate cards. I figured a small green splash consisting of Noble Hierarch and Glittering Wish would do the trick.
What does everyone else think? I know many are riding the Gifts Ungiven train right now, but I feel that both combos are weak to grave hate. Any wishboard ideas? Obviously you'd want something like Qasali Pridemage to take care of Stony Silence/Rest in Peace/Illness in the Ranks/Leyline of the Void... man is there a lot of hate out there. Any cheap multicolored Affinity hate? Lets get these ideas flowing!
Quote from Oopssorryy »It wasn't just to validate the green splash, but to also provide some amount of ramp, and to help with the casting cost for the wish board. Right now with the artifact package, the combo, counter magic all competing for space, my land base has shrunk. Below is the main deck I've proxied up, still trying to figure out a wish board;

I've 16 artifacts+Academy Ruins for Thirst for Knowledge fuel, 8 mana rocks/dorks, and Snapcaster Mage to help shore up the small spell selection. I'm probably going too deep on the green mana sources, but it's a first draft, and I'd rather have too many than too few. I'm not sure on running both Wish and Gifts as I feel that you'll end up with more tutors than targets. I'm unsure that you'd have enough room for both packages.
