I like all these decks. However, I believe that would be a very good choice for the Foreverflowing deck. It allows you to have a constant source of counters for the chalices once you can get the mana. Steady Progress is generally insufficient for the task.
Coming up with weird ideas to make everyone happy since 2008!
I have now started a blog as an appropriate place to put my crazy ideas.
The article skips over an important point which may confuse some readers.I would draw a card.The replacement effect on Possessed Portal says that I skip that draw instead.The replacement effect on Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar says that I look at the top three cards of my library instead.Which one actually happens, and which one doesn't happen, because the other replacement effect means that I don't draw a card? It doesn't seem to be guaranteed, just because I tried to deal with Possessed Portal by playing Tomorrow, that the replacement effect I want is the one that is going to actually happen.The answer to that, of course, involves one of the most obscure sections of the Comprehensive Rules.A replacement effect is considered to be one type of continuous effect, and because two continuous effects may apply simultaneously to a situation, which one is to be applied first is determined, not by timing, but by the layer system. However, the different layers all refer to effects that change some attribute of a spell or permanent, not to effects that replace one action by another.Another rule, however, is present to deal with cases not resolved by the layer system. This is the timestamp system. Basically, it says that if Possessed Portal was played first, and Tomorrow was played later, then Possessed Portal would have the earlier timestamp, and therefore its effect would take place first.
Rule 616.1 " If two or more replacement and/or prevention effects are attempting to modify the way an event affects an object or player, the affected object's controller (or its owner if it has no controller) or the affected player chooses one to apply, following the steps listed below.
