Game #213.1 (3 swaps):
IN: Demonic Tutor, Maelstrom Wanderer, Swiftfoot Boots.
OUT: Aeon Chronicler, Goblin Spymaster, Blood Tyrant

removing 2 creatures I drew in the game and did not want to cast (or cast only to have it trigger something) and one that doesn’t really fit. Adding in something to find Waste Not, something to make Haste and Cascades, and something to make haste and protect Yidris.

Game #213.2 (2 swaps):
IN: Blood Mist, Storm Seeker.
OUT: Curtains’ Call, Chain of Vapor

Targeted Removal is too specific. Adding in More Double Strike. Storm Seeker is iffy on the Nekusar Rule… technically it punishes someone for HAVING lots of cards

Game #213.3 (2 swaps):
IN: Rashmi, Eterneties Crafter; Temporal Aperture.
OUT: Whims of the Fates, Satyr Wayfinder

Whims is not a card I ever want to cast, and the Wayfinder doesn’t ramp the way I want to.  The cards in both give me more ways to get free random spells.

Game #213.4 (2 swaps):
IN: Reminiscence, Wonder.
OUT: Cruel Entertainment, Worm Harvest

Wonder means more evasion, and Reminsicence lets me do things again. Cruel entertainment is to political, and Worm Harvest is much less likely to do anything with Reminiscence (and also, thus far I tend to get most lands in to play or stacked at the bottom of the library via Cascades).

Game #213.5 (4 swaps):
IN: Elixir of Immortality, Geth’s Grimoire, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Villainous Wealth
OUT: Treacherous Terrain, Guiltfeeder, Ancient Excavation, Treasure Cruise

I wasn’t too impressed with either of the cycling cards — mana hasn’t been a problem with this deck — and Treasure Cruise is only cute with Volcanic Vision, expecially when I’m not trying to keep a huge graveyard.  Kruphix helps keep a big hand, and float mana if I have Waste Not Elixir is more GY reshuffling. Geth’s Grimoire is more cards in hand than treasure cruise.  Villainous weath isn’t great with Cascade, but is a good mana sink.

Game #213.6 (3 swaps):
IN: Nightveil Spectre, Increasing Ambitions, Elven Cache
OUT: Academy Elite, Dragon Mage, Ghastly Conscription

Nightveil is just a fun card. Increasing Ambitions is good for tutoring up something to make me win, and Elven Cache is great for getting something back.  I play Ghastly Conscription in other decks. It’s fun, but something needed to come out.  I’m not doing as much with instants/sorceries stuff, so the Elite could go, and Dragon Mage isn’t a wheel I can control.

Game #213.7 (2 swaps):
IN: Intet the Dreamer; Jace’s Archivist
OUT: Runehorn Dragon; Gamekeeper

Now we’re getting to the point where I’m switching things because I have to. Intet is another big flyer to replace Runehorn (which is a card that I liked), and the Archivist gives me slower, but repeatable Wheel powers. Gamekeeper did okay work for me in prior games, but Intet can get me other things from the library too.

Game #213.8 (2 swaps):
IN: The Locust God; Vizier of Many Faces
OUT: Bituminous Blast; Bloodbraid Elf

Two Cascade cards got cut. While I like them to help hit the double-cascade achievement, Maelstrom Wanderer and the Minotaur are more fun, and really, Yidris is the boss of Cascading.  The Locust God was an auto include for a wheel deck, and it technically fits my “Nekusar Rule,” as the draws don’t directly harm my opponent.  Vizier of Many faces is cool in the graveyard, or in my hand.

Game 213.9 (5 swaps!)  more TBD
In: Runes of the Deus, Time Spiral, Oracle’s Vault, Nissa, Steward of Elements, Praetor’s Grasp
Out: Devestation Tide, Boompile, Army of the Damned, Spellheart Chimera, Vial Smasher
Runes was an earlier swap that, in looking at my records, I hadn’t earned yet. Army of the Damned did it’s job (finally), and Vial Smasher isn’t really what the deck is going for right now. Boompile is too uncontrollable, and Devastation Tide was redundant (I know I’ve sort of limited my board wiping abilities). Nissa is in because I really like the card, even if it’s a nonbo with Cascade. Time Spiral doesn’t cause discard triggers, but I hear it is a good card. Vault and Praetor’s grasp are just other cards that I like. It is getting harder to swap things in and out.
