Deck discussion for isochron scepter

Id suggest some nonbasic lands instead of your whole basic. With nonbasic, less room for bad hands which means better games for you =)

doomgrape is right i would remove your boros and izzet lands for fetchlands, i've always found that those types of land slow down your deck considerably whereas fetchlands get you the mana you need and thin your deck giving your other cards greater chance of being drawn at the right time. you should give my decks a look and tell me what you think:)

yeah, fetch lands are always a good alternative, I was looking for the white red and red blue versions of the glacial fortress and now I've found that there arn't any. good advice

well as far as fetchlands go there is arid mesa, flooded strand, and scalding tarn, and lands that are even better than things like glacial fortress include things like active volcano and plateau

ones that don't give 2 mana at once would be great because alot of the spells cost 1

Who the heck plays with 40? There's plenty of ways to get this to 60 cards.

Enlightened Tutor.
Wall of Denial.
Memory Lapse. (extra fun on isochron sceptre)
Searing Blaze.
Scalding Tarn. (or other duals if it's too expensive)
Izzet Guildmage (to copy imprints)

well, 40 cards is the minimum number of cards you can have in a deck, though most turniments now have a requirement of 60. and if I have 40 cards, there will be a better chance of actually getting isochron scepter in my hand.

I can see how reverberate or twincast can come in handy, but what creatures would you want me to put in?

This is a sweet deck! The only problem is that it costs a fortune to build :P

Did you use orim's chant because its older than silence or because its kicker. Cause I don't isochron can do the kicker. Otherwise mean deck. I pretty sure with this deck your opponents will concede before you kill them most of the time.

actually, you can do the kicker cost. it says, "you may copy the imprinted instant card and play the copy without paying its mana cost." and The kicker effect says "You may pay an additional {w} as you play this spell." you are playing the spell, therefor you can pay the kicker cost.

Show and Tell might help you get some of your stuff out faster.

Timewalk + Isochron Scepter is infinite turns on a stick if you don't mind being not legacy legal.

Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite + Isochron Scepter also infinite turns.

If you really like Isochron + Silence/Orm's Chant you might want to look at this deck
