Quote from GordonFreemanJr »First off, thanks for the new thread, secondly I was having an interesting conversation with some people at my LGS, can we cut a Ravings and a Thought Scour for two Reforge the soul?
Also can you cast your rituals after revealing a miracled Reforge the soul or would it be cast during your draw step and empty out of your pool?
Quote from !KAMELEON! »How do you guys deal with UWR control or draw/go decks? The good players hold onto counters for early rituals and won't hold back waiting for the kill spell or engine. What do you bring in from the board?
Quote from LordHazanko »Woah, new thread already? Is this where we should post now? I will say the "new" primer looks a bit neater, but what exactly was the point of starting a new thread?
*edit* Don't mean to sound like a jerk, sorry if i came off like it!

The old OP didn't have as much time to keep it updated, so I took over. We agreed on this via PM. You can trust me, I co-wrote the previous primer with him.
Quote from Mawootad »Thought Scour increases your chances of hitting an engine in exactly the same way as any cantrip increases your chances of hitting an engine. While the milling out technically does decrease the odds of you not drawing an engine, it only does so in the sense that if you were to draw your entire deck you could theoretically mill away all of your engines. On the scale of drawing 30-40 cards out of your 60 the mill does not affect your chances of drawing an engine, while it does provide a significant increase in the odds of you being able to successfully online an ascension or kill with pif.
Quote from Swaggy P »Desperate Ravings is card advantage. Faithless Looting is card disadvantage. It's that simple.

As for Peer through Depths vs. Thought Scour, the fact that Peer through Depths can't help you dig for an engine hurts its case. Thought Scour also fills up the graveyard, which is nice.
