Quote from DaveJacinto »I'm going to be honest with you. I was playing 61 cards with the 4th Scour in. To be honest I'm not 100% set on the cantrip suite I should have. I had too many times where I had too many TScours in hand and looking for that specific card, typically a land, and Looting helps more than TScour in that. Looting is a Dark Ritual for Angler like TScour is, while having the chance to filter your hand and get rid of dead cards which is particularly interesting on G1.Quote from Jonny_Tempel »Nice report man!
I'm also eager to try out Baby Jace in both legacy and modern Shsdow lists, glad he worked out for you!
The only critism i have is why only 3 thought scour? With Jace as a filter outlet, Looting seems out of place in your list and i would ditch it for the 4th scour.
Edit: I've been trying out Sleight of Hand over Visions in a couple of games and i cannot complain so far
It has its merits and its flaws. Jace is a good filter but it's susceptible to removal so I avoid getting it out on curve, while the Looting doesn't have that problem.
On SV thing, I hate the card with so much passion, but it works wonderfully on this deck. I play UW Control and I refuse to play it ever since Opt got printed. On GDS it's a really amazing card. The drawback of drawing before scrying is mitigated by the fact that we are super mana constrained that it has little impact. For a Control deck it's way more important to draw the right card right away, but for us it doesn't matter. Sleigh of Hand feels really subpar, it's a combo card because there's not enough good cantrips in the format. That's my take on it.
Thank you for you insight!
