Cultivator's Caravan Discussion
1 month ago
the amount of voltron support feels good at the moment. However I do agree that a few cards are not good enough to warrant a spot in the deck. Both Godsend and Cultivator's Caravan have been replaced by other interesting options.
I had a few games in which Worldslayer impacted the board heavily and opponents just scooped after seeing all go to waste. I had some evasive measures that kept me partially safe. Like a Land Tax with 1 mana at the hand and a Darksteel Plate in two seperate games where I had the pleasure of excecuting the slayer's ability. Ill stick with the MLD for now... It's a fun twist in a usual linear voltron approach.

Cultivator's Caravan prior to rotation, and can block or attack into a lot of things in the format, Drover of the Mighty is an ok mana dork even without a dino to pump it, Channeler Initiate is decent, or if you move the counters to something else, it can block and kill a Goblin Chainwhirler

I really like this build, it seems to be the most sensible way to Very Quickly meet the conditions for a win, while filtering enough to get the lands and combo pieces efficiently.
I wanted to suggest a couple cards directly:
Fungal Infection - doesn't have to be a kill card, it's a unique creature at instant speed. that's good enough to include, but the Flash is GREAT for last second casting to surprise your opponent with your forth creature.
Cultivator's Caravan I realize that this rotates very soon, it's still a great EDH card, no loss. MEANWHILE, it is a mana-rock that speeds up your win, while STILL being a creature (with crew) that helps feed your wincon. Did I mention that it Also mana fixes? Good grief! It does EVERYTHING you need to do in this deck.
This is my version of this strategy, closely based on your deck. I picked a few different creatures and lowered the curve a bit. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/lillys-deal/?cb=1535689562

NoSoyYucateco no it isn't, sine Jhoira's ability triggers on "casting" a historic spell, not an historic card "entering the battlefield". There are a few good cards it interacts with though, like Reckless Fireweaver, but imo it's not worth running it if your deck is not built around it.
HARDsofty This is a nice idea for a deck, I like the vehicle theme. There are a few tweaks I would make without changing the theme of the deck: I think you could run less than 38 lands. The amount of cards you draw with Jhoira should guarantee you a land drop every turn. Also, I would consider cutting Mind's Eye, since you want to spend your mana during your turn, and drawing cards that way. Also, I would include Thopter Engineer, since giving all your vehicles haste is insane ;-) I would cut Ghirapur Gearcrafter for it.
I would also consider cutting both Implement of Combustion and Implement of Examination. They are either expensive, or basically don't do anything. If you are playing them for the card draw, consider instead playing spell bombs, or Chromatic Star/Sphere, since they also offer you utility/fixing/draw.
As for the vehicles, is there a reason you are not playing Aethersphere Harvester, Heart of Kiran, Skysovereign, Consul Flagship or even Cultivator's Caravan? They are a lot stronger than Irontread Crusher, Ovalchase Dragster, Sky Skiff and Renegade Freighter.
I made Jhoira deck as well. It has a lot more smaller artifacts and is buid around casting a lot of cheap efficient stuff, which is clearly not your strategy ;-) but if you want some inspiration, take a look at it.

For a deck with 3.1 cmc, you are running too few lands, with only two sources of ramp. 35-36 is better for control, less if you have more ramp. Because ramp is not available in your colors, mana rocks have to be used. Thought Vessel (although expensive), Darksteel Ingot, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, Marble Diamond, Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, Cultivator's Caravan. You should at least add the other signets and then think about some of the others mentioned. Because you're in blue, black, and white, you have access to single target removal spells like Pongify, Oblivion Ring, Murder, Mortify, Go for the Throat. The other upside of being in these colors is the access to good draw. While altar's reap and catalog are good, getting rid of your stuff and discarding cards only hurts you, especially with better options. Windfall, Blue Sun's Zenith, Divination, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood. Instead of essence scatter and negate, there are better counterspells that cost 2 mana, if that is what you're looking for; Counterspell and Arcane Denial. Both are not as restrictive, and in the case of arcane denial, giving your opponent cards typically doesn't matter as long as they've been disrupted. Also a 25 cent card that should be added to every list running black is Diabolic Tutor. Despite chromium's built-in protection, you should still run cards like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, or Whispersilk Cloak.

Thanks for the suggestions. First, my main win con is usually combat damage with a bit of jank thrown in. I use a lot of my spells to keep the board small, but I've avoided running actual board wipes. Its a personal preference thing.
Second, Kiora, Master of the Depths does some self mill, which might not make any sense, but with the cards i'm running for recursion it can actually work out. Cultivator's Caravan can become a 5/5 creature, and that means it interacts with kiora and Jeskai Ascendancy.
So, yeah, I guess it is a spells deck with creatures. I'm still working on the mana base, but its been low on my priority list. Any big changes means reevaluating a bunch of other cards, and probably making exactly the cuts you've suggested. I really need to do some live testing first.

Ideally you want to be building a deck that plays to Jhoira's strengths. Since her abilities mean that you draw cards whenever you cast artifacts and legendaries, that's probably what you're aiming to fill your deck with.
This means that cards like Foundry Inspector and Jhoira's Familiar are great as they make your artifacts cost less, and the familiar makes your legendaries (including Jhoira herself) cost less as well.
Since you've got a lot of artifacts running around, Inspiring Statuary is a sweet card, allowing you to tap artifacts to pay for your non-artifact spells.
If you're into combo-ish strategies, Aetherflux Reservoir is a great finisher as you'll be casting multiple artifacts per turn, drawing cards from Jhoira, and casting those cards as well, gaining life from this artefact and eventually paying 50 life to one-shot your opponent.
For sustaining that kind of combo, you'll need mana. Having multiple mana rocks such as Gilded Lotus, Manalith, Powerstone Shard, Orazca Relic, and Cultivator's Caravan will help fuel it. However the big payoff comes with Paradox Engine as it will untap each of your mana rocks every time you cast a spell. This means you can get potentially infinite mana if you keep on casting artifacts that cost less than or equal to the amount of mana that you're producing each time you untap.
Other strong cards for this strategy include The Antiquities War as it digs through your deck for more artifacts and also provides a fun janky win condition as well, turning all of your artifacts into an army of 5/5 creatures; The Locust God becuase its a big resilient creature that, whenever you draw cards such as with your Jhoira triggers, you produce a 1/1 insect that can either chump block your opponent's creatures or attack your opponent directly, killing them even more quickly; and Paradoxical Outcome as it lets you pick up all of the artifacts that you've played already and play them all over again, drawing you even more cards and getting you even closer to your win condition.

I'm not so certain Nissa, Vital Force is worth pulling Chandra, Torch of Defiance. It's a close one but I feel like Chandra's ability to add 2 land is huge for this deck. But also Nissa is almost guaranteed to ultimate since it creates a blocker... You've presented quite the conundrum!
