Quote from Lectrys »I tested Experimental Frenzy in Affinity last night, and I must admit I have to eat my words regarding EF's power level. While EF was often flaky in Affinity, giving me only 2 cards in a turn surprisingly often, it was also plenty capable of pumping out 5(!!!) cards in a turn. Unsurprisingly, Affinity was also one of the best decks at making EF do something the turn it ETB (free stuff, mana rocks). As a late-game CA grinder and nigh-finisher, it's definitely up there with Karn, Scion of Urza. (I also must note that I blew up my own EF for the first time last night--it was to get a Galvanic Blast to close out the game.) The massive CA boost is definitely enough to compensate for Remand suddenly becoming a total haymaker against you. (It turns into Counterspell that cantrips.)
I've been thinking about cantrips. Cards that dig to get you to EF as you don't want too many in the deck, but that are still good once it's on the field. Opt can dig but it's quite bad post EF. Serum Visions is good pre EF but actually gets better post EF as you can use it to clear a card you can't play, and then to stack your next two cards. Search for Azcanta is also quite good on both sides in both situations. Collective Brutality gets pretty great too. I think the card has a home in Jund, but I also think it could be very playable in a Grixis Midrange/Blue Jund style deck.
