as for Jeskai Student isn't Elusive Spellfist just better in a different color?

Possible Enlightened Ascetic for flavor in side if you see a lot of enchentments.

I really like Stratus Dancer in something like this too. its not really expected. Maybe in side vs slower decks. It's a good monk control card

Jeskai Infiltrator Just looks fun

Delver of Secrets  Flip seems out of place. What about Immolating Souleater or Elusive Spellfist?


Catalog9000 on Should I run Keranos in ...

But if I were you, I'd run either 4x of Kiln Fiend or Guttersnipe. Both are classics and both deal tremendous damage. Between Delver and Swiftspear, I think you've got combat covered. So I'd go with non-combat (Guttersnipe). Which is kind of weird; He's your Featured Card, after all...

Another good card is Elusive Spellfist. I run a UW Prowess that uses a playset of him. Works really well.

1.I would cut the Artful Dodge for Sleight of Hand. More cantrips will help you build spell count while filtering through the deck

  1. I agree drop the Gut Shot for Rift Bolt. This will give you needed removal so your creatures can attack while adding to spell count.

  2. Soul-Scar Mage for Monastery Swiftspear4.maybe run x3 Elusive Spellfist instead of Kiln Fiend because it gives its self unblockable and pick up one more copy of Stormchaser Mage for the haste.

  3. As much as it pains me to say delver of secrets instead of Blistercoil Weird. Neither one of these creatures are going to swing turn 1. Delver does have evasion and while it doesnt pump with spell count its still a very real clock and complements the Titan's Strength and the Assault Strobe.

I hope these suggestions are helpful, but you should make the changes you want for your deck.

Elusive Spellfist would be nice to get some more damage through, also there are a lot of replacements for shock that do the same thing but better, Magma Spray for example

Elusive Spellfist

Cast X spells, deal X damage with Thermo-Alchemist then swing with unblockable Elusive Spellfist for X+1 damage.


Minihorror227 on Can you even call this storm

6 months ago

hmm, i would personally take out the Monastery Swiftspear for the Retraction Helix and then take out the Worn Powerstone for Prophetic Prism. The Elusive Spellfist does just as well as the Swiftspear, just with the added evasion and since you would be trying for the storm win, you wont need as many creatures in the deck that do this ability.

The weakest link would have to be the Worn Powerstone though because it enters the battlefield tapped.

right now i'm looking up other cards that would be jsut as a effective as these. i'll let you know when i find anything

Lets see, the decks i play againat are:

  • Titan Scapeshift. The usual one you will find online with added blue for Gifts Ungiven and Cryptic Command

  • Goblins. This is the usual goblin decks you'll find. He uses Guttersnipe and tries to deal damage through Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command while having in the goblin that creates goblin tokens equal to the amount you already have(forgot the name. I think its Krenko but not sure right now))

  • Eldrazi Tron. Uses Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Karn, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. The main removal thwy usw against me is All Is Dust. Have Thought-Knot and the usual in it. Think can find the deck by going to meta decks on MtgGoldfish.

  • U/R Gifts. Storm deck. No changes to them other than 1 deck having Empty the Warrens sideboard and the other running 1 or 2 main.

  • Seismic Swans. Uses Seismic Assault and Swans of Bryn Argoll

  • W/R Burn. I'm not sure what he used in the deck. One card was some shrine that puts counters on it when you play red spells or on upkeep, then can sac to deal dmg equal to the counters on it. Sorry for not knowing much about it, he's only played it once.

  • Cascade Living End. Uses any 3 cost cascade spells and Living End the rest is a bunch of cycle creatures.

  • U/W Prowess. Built around Elusive Spellfist and tries to buff him until victory.

I think i've named all the decks. If i missed any i'll post them later.
