Have people forgotten about going Bant for Wargate?

Wargate was only good because it fetched Omen, and Omen is unnecessary in all-out Combo builds that have access to Shocklands. With Shocklands, you should have more than enough Mountains, though I suppose a more "control" build could use Wargate?

Index is neither a Cantrip, nor a counter. You can easily cut it because it's a piece of shit.

and a more midrange standardtime-like primeval valakut mixed with wolf run?
i guess attacking for 10 trample and 12-15 damage from valakut turn 5-6 is not a chimera.

1 kessig wolf run
1 cavern of souls
3 misty rainforest
8 mountain
4 forest
4 stomping ground
4 valakut

4 sakura-tribe elder
4 bloodbraid elf
1 thrun
3 primeval titan

4 lightning bolt
4 pyroclasm

4 search for tomorrow
4 rampant growth
4 scapeshift
1 prismatic omen
2 primal command

1 boseiju (u-based)
2 autumn's veil (u-based)
2 firespout (affo, tokens, pod, delver uwr, merfolk, whatever)
3 fulminator mage (mirror, tron)
3 ancient grudge (affo)
4 kitchen finks (jund, monoR, delver ugr)

I'm testing something like this, even if i think that the classic UGR build it's probably better.

Did you not mean Index to be Annex? Typo?

If you really meant index you must be new that card is really bad. a whole card is way too much just to manipulate your draws. It could look at the top 8 or 10 and still probably not be worth it.

Play Serum Visions or perhaps Slight of Hand.

Valakut still seems way less scary than Angelpod, but with blue could be good indeed.
