Quote from CommonerCoffee »I'm excited to hear about Aristocrats in 2019 as well. I'm currently trying to slowly add some aspects of that archetype into my cube starting with Goblin Bombardmenet. Anyone got a recent decklist or a mockup of a deck that they think might do fine nowadays?
Quote from PrimevalLaurids »I was considering this when Sentinel Tower was spoiled. My initial thoughts was that it could be an additional pay-off card (apart from Monastery Mentor and Young Pyromancer) for the spells matter archetype
Quote from PrimevalLaurids »My considerations were all revolved around free spells such as Gitaxian Probe, Manamorphose, Frantic Search and Time Spiral. I wouldn't want to add any rituals since they mainly slot into storm decks without doing anything in other archetypes. You could also consider cards like Guttersnipe, Firebrand Archer and Thermo-Alchemist, although these seem a bit narrow.
Quote from PrimevalLaurids »
Another thing to consider with both Sentinel Tower and Aetherflux Reservoir is that they incentivice you to hold on to your spells until they hit the battlefield, meaning that your first four turns may be a bit too uninteractive - but i guess that is part of the Storm style of play and the consequences of this depend on how fast the meta is.

I like the thought of Sentinel Tower over Aetherflux Reservoir, might just be personal taste but I dislike the fact it is harder to win games with if you fall short, Sentinel Tower means I can at least go on a burn backup plan.
