Chandra, Flamecaller Discussion
6 hours ago
the_earl_0f_grey: Thank you for your comment, but I think I'll pass on most of those suggestions. Quick explanations:
Chaos Warp is just better than Council's Judgment, I'm sorry. I can tutor for Chaos Warp with Sunforger, it's an instant, requires less color commitment, it can hit lands, in competitive tiers it's very rare for the "downside" to be relevant, I can use it to "cheat" with Scroll Rack if I Warp my own commander, and most relevantly I can't be outvoted when casting Chaos Warp. The closest comparison would be Oblation, but generally I find Warp to be superior.
Magus of the Wheel is vital in this deck. I wouldn't take him out in a million years. Also, I've found Weathered Wayfarer to be bad in this list, as I don't actually need many lands to win. And as much as I do like Chandra, Flamecaller's 0 ability, 6 mana is pretty steep. Still, I might consider her over Sun Titan...
Elspeth, Knight-Errant fits the goal of this deck much better than Elspeth Tirel. In fact, the latter is downright terrible in this list, no offense intended. Her 5CMC conflicts with my commander, her +2 is irrelevant, her -2 is not an upgrade over the other Elspeth's +1 (I only need one creature to hold a sword), and her -5 wipes away my equipment (without which I cannot recover). I'll pass :p
Ehhh. Vedalken Orrery and Dictate of Heliod are more fitted to a slow value grind deck...which is very much not this deck. I will pass on both (though Orrery does play nice with Sword of Feast and Famine...).
Stranglehold is a fine card, but again - not fitted to this deck. Every card in this deck should be an active threat, not passively preventing my opponents from taking certain actions.
Thank you for your comment anyway! I hope this didn't sound too harsh.

Out: Quicksmith Rebel
In: Ghirapur AEther Grid Better Orb Control, cheaper, survives flips, harder to remove, and more potential damage/utility.
Out: Chaos Warp
In: Council's Judgment More targets, more power, no downside.
Out: Magus of the Wheel
In: Elspeth Tirel Elpeth can be one sided wipe the turn after, forcing attackers or a faster/longer game. Instead of slower-not-relevant-evasion Elspeth.
I try to go slot for slot when possible.
Ghostway beats cyclonic rift
Stranglehold stops most of the typical cheater degeneracy.

Ive played with a deck like this and I found that Chandra, Flamecaller is really nice in getting free sacable creatures. +1, swing, sac at second main. It really puts pressure on your opponents. Love the list otherwise!

Deck seems decent, but could use so changes.
You don't run alot of creature so Decimator of the Provinces doesn't make much sense. I would trade both for 2 more planeswalker.
Deathcap Cultivator is never going to have deathdoutch. Unless you use him only for the B/G. I would probably keep him for mana ramp and urgency blocks.
When you use 3+ colors, you need to keep in mind that it might be hard to cast double 1 color spells (GG or RR or BB) in mana cost are really hard to make use of.

Sylvan Safekeeper synergizes with Titania and provides protection for Omnath.
Chandra, Flamecaller creates elemental tokens and can fix a bad hand with her 0 or wipe a weak board with her -X.
Genesis Wave is a massive bomb to drop when you've got a lot of mana, whether or not Omnath is out it will be great.
Xenagos, God of Revels is a strong threat and can make your Rubblehulk and Ulvenwald Hydra somewhat scarier (though rubblehulk is an iffy include, IMO it basically serves to randomly kill an opponent who didn't block Omnath with commander damage).
I would recommend Earthquake as a method to finish off opponents who you've already been slugging all game.
Bobo seems like another good threat to add (I see he's on your maybeboard) and would synergize well with Seek the Horizon and Sprouting Vines. Tornado Elemental is also on your maybeboard and I can testify to the fact that it is a really strong card to have in your toolbox. Omnath and his elementals can't block fliers, obviously, and Tornado Elemental is fantastic for that.
You could consider Jolrael, Empress of Beasts as well. She's very niche, but can either turn your lands into attackers (unfortunately not elementals) or deter your opponent from casting a wrath effect by threatening to turn their lands into creatures.
Cuts are hard but it seems like Nissa's Pilgrimage, Seek the Wilds, and Burnished Hart are good places too start. Low impact ramp seems to primarily aid your deck in overinvesting in Omnath. Embodiment of Insight also seems pretty mediocre.
Nice list though, fun to look through.

Also seems like Chandra, Flamecaller could be a strong include - makes six power with haste or gives you a net positive wheel (for discarding creatures). Additionally, she's has a soft boardwipe.
Vault of the Archangel is a bomb in decks like this. Brutal Hordechief is an option, but is a dubious include because it looks like you're not trying to truly flood the board, which is where he shines. Also Sengir Autocrat is probably going to go into my Marchesa deck soon.

Fucking awesome man! You know I love the Planeswalkers.
I'm really digging the way you are exploiting the walkers, I would love to build something like that! (Any excuse I can get to buy more Planeswalkers is fine with me)
