Capture of Jingzhou Discussion

I think Capture of Jingzhou and Temporal Manipulation are quite playable, I just haven't found cuts I love and the list is pretty tight. The problem with running too many of the effects is that they can rot in your hand early-game, but they're all at least decent.

I don't think that cards like Walk the Aeons or Part the Waterveil are that playable though. 6 mana for a "vanilla" Time Walk effect just feels like too much.

As a note Time walk is not EDH legal and Kefnet is ok with turn spells that exile themselves

You’ll be casting a copy and only the copy get’s exiled, but you don’t care about that anyways it’s just a copy

There are the core turn spells like Time Warp , Temporal Manipulation , and Capture of Jingzhou that will be the absolute best. But ones like Temporal Trespass with their own cost reducing abilities are nice, especially since you actually “cast” the copy so you can pay alternative costs like Delve

I also don’t think you really need a Lab man/Jace win unless you have an alternative infinite draw combo. When you demonstrate turns you can also just beat your opponents in the face with your dead bird, yeah it’s 6 hits each but you’re on turns anyways. At least that’s what I do with my Taigam, Ojutai Master Intuition Turns deck trying to win by turn 4/5

Other than that it seems like it’s mostly money upgrades to your core categories: Ramp, draw, and tutor so you can get your combo online ASAP. For what cards to get for that I’d recommend looking at the aforementioned Taigam deck or looking up a cEDH primer.

Also: don’t be afraid to proxy some cards. No one should pay $1,400 for a single piece of cardboard, or even $200 really. Personal opinion, you do you on that.

I feel like it's actually under powered for four specific colors of mana. True it is only two colors, but the casting requires specifically two of each. I think you can lower it to just and it will be fine.

I could see it printed as a Legendary Creature among the 99, rather than the +1 in a Commander set, similarly to how Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer was.

I would be a little concerned though with the increasing commander tax. Obviously, first and foremost his most applicable use is to copy spells. Copying something like a Time Walk , Savor the Moment , Time Warp , or Capture of Jingzhou will be his most powerful asset. Next, I would assume it would most likely be red-based explosive spells. Rolling Thunder , Crater's Claws , Blaze , Banefire - that kind of thing.

Alongside an Izzet deck that can produce Treasure tokens would make it just insane, especially running Saheeli, the Gifted .

I don't think he's broken, per se, but I have concerns with just how much utility you can get out of him after his 3rd casting :/

Maizena Thanks for your suggestions.

I can easily generate infinite mana with Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal but I don't have that many mana sinks in the deck to benefit from it ( Goblin Charbelcher being my sole outlet).

Capture of Jingzhou is already in my Maybeboard and the only reason why I've yet to include it in the deck is it's cost. Am searching high and low for a reasonably priced Judge Promo Capture though. Wish me luck!

More suggestions and ideas are certainly welcomed, or leave an upvote if you will. Thanks again!

What about Dramatic Reversal to combo with the Isochron Scepter and Capture of Jingzhou as another extra turn card?

Hey there!

I've been drawing up my own version of MRB and I do love your list, especially since it's one of the more up to date lists in existence on this website.

I've been thinking of adding some extra turns effects, namely Temporal Manipulation , Capture of Jingzhou and I think Time Warp . How do you feel about that idea? The reason I'm taking these cards, is because of the extra shenennigans you can do with the taken creatures, it's a way to take big guys, remove summoning sickness and hit or to generate even more value from previously created value. The spells don't exile, which is also a plus.

Capture of Jingzhou is not affordable.

Capture of Jingzhou , Temporal Manipulation and Time Warp are basically identical cards and could stack a deck to let me consistently draw extra turns.

Those cards cost Mana which is why I was thinking of the ramp feature.

Each turn allows me a chance to get to a Planeswalker abilities sooner, cast more spells, use more combat phases, and set up a win condition faster. Thought Vessel and a draw mechanic might help smooth out the process.

I'm mostly thinking out loud right now as I try to decide if it's plausible and then how to execute on it.
