    I like the Thoughtseize decision in the delver MU and particularly the ideas AJ and Bryant discuss related to selecting Ponder vs Brainstorm.

    And another fad card in TES bites the dust, I don't think that card is ever going to be a thing outside of SI with Vault of Whispers and robots or maybe Belcher with Grim Monolith?

    I don't think the list is anywhere as mutable as you suggest, cutting a discard, mox or land for the weaker rituals or cantrips just slows down TES. Half of the new and old cards you suggested were objectively bad, if you're worried about Prison just cut some number of Echoing Turth for Hurkyl's Recall - the answer to clear metagame shifts is pretty much always more linear SB cards.

    Re: [Deck] T.E.S. - The EPIC Storm

    Hi, long time i don't post here, I just wanted to share what I am wearing and a couple of questions,

    - nice to see now the majority of people are running CTherapy again.
    - nice to see Opal is not played in TES - never was a good card for this archetype.
    - from a couple of months till now I am playing 2 AN main and have to say that I'm happy about this - 14 lands 4 cmox, 7 discard.

    I've seen recently that some of you are playing Mizzys Mastery and no PiF in side, I have in mind the wonderPreaux list, some considerations before and add if I am mistaken:
    1- which is the main goal of MM n side?
    2- I see the following options:

    a) play MM with LED under BW and having AN in hand so it is discarded and then played by total 6 mana.
    Does it really worth it? I mean the changes of occurring this casuistics are very few...
    b) play its overloaded cost
    Well this is a total of 10 mana includidng BW - does it really worht too? don't think so, by that mana you can do natural tendrils.
    c) +1 storm for EtW in GY

    apart of these 3 point, do I miss anything?
    This card was something sooner or later I wasgoing to test, and now I play 2AN main I think it may work... but not sure chances are slim...

    @wonderpreaux, any input on this - MM? (or any who plays MM) which is the reason of those 2 CRit? maybe to try to play the MM overaload cost?

    So Flashback Timetwister was just spoiled in Modern Horizons; I figure Land, Lion's Eye Diamond, Rite of Flame, Burning Wish and Echo of Eons is a play line this deck could make use of. If you have multiple LEDs, you can use the first LED to cast Echo of Eons and then the second LED to flashback in order to value your way through counter spells. This may be the best storm engine we've seen since Ad Nauseam, Modern Horizons is a gold mine for the format.

    wow, didn't see this new card...
    this for sure at least will be make me definately substitute D.R.

    the question is:
    - is this material for maindeck in TES?

    I don't think so. Reasons:
    1. you need it to be in GY so you need LED / T.Seize or CTherapy to yourself . by te moment the most degenerate is LED > THIS. but that's it... I mean you DO need LED in order to make the card absurd, then it is not that absurd.

    is the card material for a new dek?
    - don't know, but I see several interactions - the first is Quiet Speculation, the second is Gamble - maybe absurd? did wizards had in mind those 2 cards when they invented THAT card?

    F.Fortute, I dont get this:

    MDing Echo of Eons is a bad idea, what makes the card great is that Burning Wish and Lion's Eye Diamond get to abuse Flashback without becoming a graveyard centric deck - it's the Past in Flames principle again. I'm pretty sure this is definitely the new Storm engine for Burning Wish, getting a D7 with an average of +1 mana increases the fundamental turn of TES by a fair margin.

    Edit: LED number 1 helps to pay for Echo of Eon's 6 mana cost, if it is countered then LED number 2 pays for Echo of Eon's flashback. Staggering LED activations basically gives you more business provided you have enough mana to pay for the +2cc vigorish over Diminishing Returns. Might be relevant when you're mana flooded, hasn't come up in testing yet.

    Nah, D7 isn't for the Island match up unless it's your only option. Hard casting this thing is also better than Time Twister, the flashback is sitting in the graveyard for any LED draw to let you D7 again (Amazing for BMing with Grape Shot).
